    Could be. I found that a slightly increased FOV works well, but you still have to decrease the physics box for humans so it doesn't look like you're bumping into them when you're two feet away.
    how do you do this?

    tell me now, I'm fukkin' fed up of how hard it is to knife something in STALKER

    Joe, is it this section of m_stalker.ltx that controls the size of stalker's collision boxes?

    ;---PHYSICS-----------------------------------------------------------
    ph_box0_center = 0.0, 0.9, 0.0
    ph_box0_size = 0.35, 0.9, 0.35
    ph_box1_center = 0.0, 0.6, 0.0
    ph_box1_size = 0.40, 0.6, 0.40

    So I cleared out the Renegade base in Swamps for the mission, barely, almost died at the end but then remembered some of the bodies had bandages.

    I'm now sitting here "waiting for help to arrive"

    Somehow I don't think anyone's coming

    Yup. I found that halving the _size value works well. Leave _center the same.

    Seems the zoom for Misery weapons is based on the player using something other than the default FOV value; at 67.5 (iirc the SoC FOV value) the zoom is minimal, but not backwards like at default 55.
    I think I like the SoC FOV more, so i'll use that.

    If you truly are a Stalker Bro you don't need to ask.

    Because Stalker Bros don't care because they're devoted to being a bro and a Stalker first and foremost.

    I think Clear Sky'll arrive eventually but god damn is it ever annoying to keep guessing whether they will ever come. I remember once in the earlier versions I left the game running for ~30 minutes just waiting for Clear Sky and they never came.

    Didn't someone here make a mod a while ago that added a lot of us as NPCs in SoC? I remember I was added as a soldier with the SKAT-9 suit at the Cordon military post. I killed nearly all of the stalkers following him until he gunned me down

    I never heard about anything like that. Haha, wouldn't it be funny if a mod included a group of stalkers with our names that hang around in some corner of the Cordon/Bar/Garbage that tell you to "piss off, we're browsing the internet" if you try to talk to them

    What I want in STALKER 2 is Monolith being the weakest/ lowest in numbers and have a story line where they remake their philosophy and rise from the ground 0 into most awesome group ever.

    MONOLITH, BROTHER!

    Except it would totally break the story and Monolith is one of the most hostile, ruthless, lunatic unfriendly and unfavourable video game organizations.

    Maybe GSC could just go balls-out and let the player join a faction and lead it to dominion over the Zone (as far as a group of people CAN rule over a place like the zone). Different endings depending on how you choose your side. Basically Faction Wars done right.

    :/

    I would love to have Fallout type endings. Where players chooses the faction and helps them.

    I'm assuming that he meant after the events of CoP.

    Them not being controlled by the Zone/having lost contatc with it etc.

    When considering that the zone fucked shit up if anybody ever got close to the CNPP, the Monolith were actually there for every bodies sake. Without them, shit would have got thrown all over the place long before Streloks group got there. Re-forging the Monolith with better ideals to ensure that nobody pisses off the Zone would be a nice change of pace, but would ruin the whole them being a badass mass of badasses wrestling each other and pseudogiants in the most dangerous part of the Zone.

    As we saw (Strider) it's entirely possible for Monolith to break from the control of the magical green tube of magical experiments. The Preacher was the one leading the Monolith in to battle after the C-Con got obliterated.

    Edit: Though, I'd hate to have S2 focus on factioin warfare, I'd much rather they focus on the story, and maybe add faction warfare mechanics and such. I'd really dislike having a certain group ruling the Zone be canon. The fun of STALKER is the fact that it's a huge war zone between humans, mutants and everything in-between.

    That and campfires. I fucking love campfires.

    That's a fair point. The Zone isn't really a place that anyone would WANT to rule, and the whole narrative of STALKER is more based around individuals (Strelok) or small groups (Degty and his buds). Having STALKER 2 have a convincing and meaningful story should definitely come before adding new game mechanics, as there's already plenty for GSC to work with.

    A STALKER game with the plot depth of (dare I say it) Metro 2033 would be amazing.

    But the gameplay is already good. GSC's already showed us that they have the basics of a player-driven story right (the CoP end sequence) and I'd like to see where they can go from there. STALKER's atmosphere makes it a very psychological type of game, and that could lend itself really well to a thoughtful plot.

    That's why I made a comparison to Metro 2033--Dmitri Glukhovsky did a really great job of blending the physical desolation and loneliness of the metro with dark, complex story elements.

    I want more underground areas that scare the shit out of me while also being amazing to explore like X10 was (I missed like 1/2 of the rooms my first run through).

    To make another cross-game comparison, STALKER needs its own Blackreach.

    I'm hoping that S2 and MLL develop more deeper characters in the fashion of the Metro 2033 book. They are very decent as of right now, but they kind of lack that memorizable depth and commentary on loads of everyday things for them, something that makes everyone stick out from everyone. Metro 2033 made the environments seem far more alive than your usual stalker camp, but it kind of left the main characters on a lower level.

    Yeah. Metro had great plot and characterization, but super-linear gameplay. STALKER has awesome gameplay, but all the characters are pretty much the same (although there are times when they seem very alive, such as when people hang around campfires, tell stories, etc.)

    Clearly we need a petition to get all the Metro devs to go back to GSC and help with STALKER 2

    Joe, is it this section of m_stalker.ltx that controls the size of stalker's collision boxes?

    ;---PHYSICS-----------------------------------------------------------
    ph_box0_center = 0.0, 0.9, 0.0
    ph_box0_size = 0.35, 0.9, 0.35
    ph_box1_center = 0.0, 0.6, 0.0
    ph_box1_size = 0.40, 0.6, 0.40
    Would that make it so I stop getting stuck on STALKERs on their way to traders in TFW?
