    I got 12GB ram recently, I can finally play the soup the way it was meant to be enjoyed.
    Not unless you also have SoC installed on an SSD and you've prayed to the Monolith every day for the past twelve years.

    You guys are acting like the Soup is impossible to play on anything but an IBM super computer. I have 2GB tied up with a 6800 series ATI card and a Core 2 Duo processor and it runs fine in most areas.

    4GB and a 5770. Only problem is loading times.

    One really fucked up thing about NS's loading times is that they seem faster than with any other SoC mod on my end.

    It runs fine. Just install the "low end" texture pack from the site/Argus texture pack and it'll be fine.

    The loading times, however, get worse as you play it. At first it's ~1 minute to load a level from the main menu, then it keeps going up... I stop playing when it gets up to 5 minutes.

    People Soup is very crash-prone. Especially in Pripyat, I couldn't walk 10 feet without crashing. After about a dozen or so quickloads, I managed to get away to a less populated area of Pripyat. I stopped playing after getting there though, 5 minutes loads and constant crashes discouraged me from playing

    Runs flawless on my 2.8GHZ AMD Quad, with 4GB Ram and a ATI Radeon HD 5770.

    No, I meant the patch. I've got Stalker online, it doesn't work for me (which seems to be a problem with Steam copies of the game, from the comments).
    I posted it a few pages ago...

    I hate to keep coming back here to only ask questions, but I truly don't understand the order system in SGM. I order an item for a very low price of... my knife? Which I still seem to have after placing it. I go to sleep for a few hours, come back. And there's nothing. The only options are to replace the order which I don't have, and the traders inventory hasn't changed. Is it just broken or something?

    You have to wait a day or so, and then enter the trade screen with the person and you can buy it off him. Unless you mean Nimble?

    Psi storm, not blowout. It's rather irritating that they didn't add more safe areas, ones that made some goddamn sense. That building there, for example, should be plenty protection from psi storms.

    Edited:

    They're not really psi storms tbh, they look more like lightning storms.

    That mod has started to intrigue me, especially what they plan to do with the levels, namely merging levels and replacing some with earlier, more expansive beta versions (hopefully polished up). They plan to e.g. merge Agroprom with it's underground, merge Garbage with Cordon, Bar with Rostok and such. Very interesting, i'd love to see how it turns out.

    I'm not too fond of how many mods include it by default. It rapes older computers, imo it should be an optional addon. But I guess most mods don't care about those of us with older computers :c

    I agree, hence Redux Base, but unfortunately AtmosFear 3 is too deeply ingrained with the game to be an optional choice for Redux v2.0 :(

    If you're already using a mod, keep in mind you might have to manually merge things, so be careful if that's the case.

    Psi storm, not blowout
    God, I hate the Psi-storms. They are really cool at first but unlike the blowout, waiting out a psi-storm gets really boring. A blowout shakes the ground and sounds like Satan himself is arriving on Earth before it climaxes and the blowout waves sweep the surface of the Zone clean. You really feel like you want to take cover even if it didn't do any damage.

    What does Psi-storm do ? Well, it looks sweet until the psy-bolts start coming and they take just an unnecessary amount of time because after the first "Psy-bolts" hit, you are either dead or in cover so you're just stuck there waiting and growing more and more impatient. You don't even get hallucinations or something, it's just a really long wait.

    I agree, hence Redux Base, but unfortunately AtmosFear 3 is too deeply ingrained with the game to be an optional choice for Redux v2.0 :(
    Speaking of Redux, will you include Russian audio+subtitles-option like CfP / integrate it directly to the mod ?

    They also strike a lot faster than blowouts, and are usually no less lethal. Not enough time to get into a safe area.
    Tbh they should build up in strength gradually, so the player has enough time to get to cover with at least a tiny bit of their health left if they're not daft.

    Instead, you will re-do every bit of voice acting in the game with professional voice acting from hired voice actors!

    Could you then at least make the mod compatible with Russian audio mod so we won't CTD if we want to have atmosphere instead of SPEEL THE BEENS and ALOOOOOOOOOOOOHA ?
    I mean, I'm not asking for extra steps to accommodate it except just keeping it in mind in case you're putting in unique characters from Clear Sky and such so installing the RU audio won't end up in CTDs everywhere.

    I'm so glad that S.T.A.L.K.E.R-mods don't have fan-made voice acting. All those fake russian accents would be too much to bear.

    if you want it you're going to have to merge it i'm afraid
    Welp. I guess I'll just have to do that because the english is too damn corny and it affects the atmosphere so much . It was kind of funny the first time around but after being used to the russian audio, it's like the english voices were designed for a whole different game.

    I honestly don't know what you're talking about. The English voice acting in Clear Sky and Call of Pripyat is flawless.
    Some of the soldiers in Pripyat remind me of the orc peons in Warcraft 3. "MORE WORK? OFF I GO THEN"
    Fucking classic.

    It doesn't help, IMHO, that they use the sound effects for electro anomalies. It feels more like a storm, not a psy-storm.
