I love the STALKER games but I can never get very far since this is my biggest problem.

On Pripyat I'm up to the Bloodsucker lair - I did it, forgot to save and then died afterwards

The weapons just aren't powerful enough at the start. The automatic rifle is OK but runs out of Ammo and the pistol is more fail than the iPad.

The AK47 or w/e they call it AK74? Is a decent gun, I can't really remember what you start out with other than a pistol though... If you take out the military under the bridge using gorilla tactics you can get there rifles, which will last you until you get Rostok, the place with the bar, then you take a quick trek to Yantar which is west of Rostok and get yourself a decent rifle.

New LURK is out: http://www.moddb.com/mods/lurk

Awesome mod and well worth the replay. Everything is pretty much rehauled and the visual upgrades are quite stunning!

I have played the game without any mods for about 4 hours in total. I haven't really done much in the game besides getting used to the basics. It looks pretty bland right now, would you recommend this conversion mod as my first play-through?

Nah, LURK is bad for the first playthru. It adds a whole lot of new mechanics and difficulty to the game, you'll have enough issues coming to terms with all the stuff going on in vanilla SOC.

If you want to mod it for your first playthru, get Stalker Complete. It plays pretty much the same as vanilla, but the graphics are improved.

I know it may be a bit late, but definitely sign me up for this. I have been a fan of the game since I first saw the alpha way back near 2003 (iirc).

A wonderful form of entertainment in the Zone is driving a tractor into a Vortex Anomaly.

HA!

Is that Oblivion Lost mod ... or which one is it that has some drivable vehicles, I forget?

An even better trick is to first grab the merc suit hidden in the rookie camp, (and a bottle of vodka for for the radiation you pick up on the way) then head to the Dark Valley (avoid the Military under the bridge by finding the hole in the fence to the right of them about 100 yards). Once there, you help out Bullet free his friend from the Bandits, et voila: scoped AK like 10 minutes into the game

Also, heading to the army warehouses immediately upon arriving to Rostok (the Bar) can net you a Vintorez (best gun in the game, IMHO), and various NATO guns if you know where to look and how to get 'em. And it's not nearly as dangerous as stepping into the Wild Territories (let alone trying to make it to Yantar) at that stage of the game
