Stop, outsiders may not enter.
does anyone have stories from the zone or a S.T.A.L.K.E.R. challenge?
A group of friends and I did the vanilla Stalker challenge in an old abandoned cathedral. Give me a minute to dig out pics.
I don't have uncensored because this is a SFW board. Find them on r34 or something. Also is anyone interested in a STALKER stream without narration?
That a yes or no? I see that word all over the place but can never translate it
-At least 200 rounds of ammunition
-Gun must be NATO or Combloc
Spend at least 1 hour every day, for at least 2 days, kneeling in front of a concrete/metal structure of some sort with your head bowed in prayer.
Shit, that guy DOES look like Zulu.
he looks like half of /k/
What a waste
>hear bloodsucker roar
I don't have that exact one, but this is close.
I've also got a bunch, some of them OC
I have a story about yelling at fellow S.T.A.L.K.E.Rs at the movie theatre.
>go with my buddy to see a movie
>Chernobyl diaries has just opened
>pass the door
>kick open the door and shout at the top of my lungs "BLOWOUT SOON FELLOW STALKERS!"
>guy stands up and shouts back "get out of here STALKER"
>another guy asks when and his buddy, I'm assuming, grabs him and shouts 'NOW"
>mfw the theatre was literally filled with stalkers
>mfw no face when because windows phone
Who's ready for a new STALKER stream? New game of COP on twitch
Do you guys remember that guy a couple years back that stirred up a shitstorm because he like to wander the woods in a milsurp poncho and gasmask and collect flowers?

I bought Shadows of Chernobyl but I only play it every couple of days since it puts me on edge and then I can't sleep. I play it really seriously and slowly being very careful. It makes my mind not be able to settle down.
I have to go back to the first underground tunnels section for the third time now. The first time I couldn't find the Strelok's stash and the second time I didn't exit the right tunnel to fulfill the objective.
>TFW you will never stalk as hard as this guy
I'm waiting on the final two pieces for my PC build, can't fucking wait to play this. Bought it on a steam sale 2 years ago. Gonna blacken the windows, rock a mag into my AKS-74 and get out the Mak. I've been reading and getting hyped. Hope it's not a 'never meet your heroes' kinda feel.
reposting from last thread
Just got to pripyat on my first playthrough of vanilla SOC. I love the atmosphere but I feel like the story is just eh. I dont know anything about the factions except that duty and freedom hate each other, monolith is a bunch of dicks and military is a bunch of bigger dicks. I've been using the ghost suit since I found it and haven't seen anything better. I have just a couple anomalies like mom's something and meat something. The only positive one and the high health one? I like playing it but I don't know, it's not very gripping for me. Am I missing something?
Not completely sure what your saying, but I think the webm is from Call of Pripyat with Misery mod
Have you been reading the dialog of the main quest? Have you been completing side quests? A lot of the games greatness is gained through random events because of how the A-life works, so its pretty much just your experience in stalking that brings great stories and fun times. Without trying to spoil it I want to say that there are multiple endings and the 'true' ending isn't very obvious.
Hmm. I was kinda intrigued by the side quest with the doctor in strelok's hiding place and the hotel. I'm trying to find my way to that now. I might play through again and pay more attention to the dialog. The voice acting is eh, but entertaining enough to keep my attention. I usually read everything anyway
Might be worth trying some mods out on the second play through.

Progress for me as a character feels kinda halted. I have the bullpup with the grenade launcher that was rechambered in 5.45 and the ghost suit and I just haven't come across anything I can use that is substantially better. The ammo is relatively abundant (maybe not so much that I got into pripyat and am fighting the monolith more. I might make the switch to something 5.56 soon) and the damage and accuracy is good for now. The ghost suit is really good with it's healing properties and it's pretty protective. I haven't found anything that gives me really good armor and rad protection and I keep looking around for some sick ass exoskeleton armor but it's no where to be found. Anyone know if there is some way I can increase the durability of my weapon?
Cant really help you on the weapon durability but I would look around 100 rads Bar before I left for Pripyat they were selling Exo suits, also something like the SEVA suit from the scientist offer great Rad and Anomaly protection. Also you should try switching to 9x39 if it isnt too late, the ammo is hard to find but I think its worth it.
I always felt like the bar was behind the curve in their inventory, you know? Like, as soon as I "upgraded" my armor or weapon, the barkeep started selling my last weapons ammo. I doubt he has exo suits
SoC was the first installment, then CoP, and then CS.
Chronologically however it goes:
Shadow of Chernobyl
Call of Pripyat
I personally prefer to do things in order, but that's just me.
I feel like it needs rework. I think I applied the wrong camo.
Isnt it pic related?
First one is Shadow of Chernobyl, the second is Clear sky and then Call of pripyat
Visited an abandoned mining town last night.
Took a 7 mile hike in, and a 7 mile hike back out
There was one building full of nothing but chairs.
Also friend's 74 barrel is in this picture
Unfortunately most of the remaining pictures are a shit.
Found some old photos and proofs of sale laying around the shopping area.
Most everything was cleaned out
I tried to fix some so that there easier to see
Here is a pile of old photos
The rest are in a night vision camera
Picture is my pps43, and my buddy squatting over some old documents
Where is that?
Also, be careful about exploring mines, especially at such a far distance, and at night. It would suck a fat one to get hurt on something you didn't see and have to crawl 7 miles back to help.
Rockerville, South Dakota
Pack weight was just 15 lbs, was ammo and 4 water bottles.
Didn't stay the night had to work yesterday. Left at 1am, got back at 0450ish
Didn't rain, but there was extensive cloud cover. Brought back a stack of the photos and some of the POS's
Old photos. Notice the costume party photos
Especially the sailor with the dick nose
So I've broken down and decided to see what the fuss is about this game.
Should I start with just the vanilla Shadow of Chernobyl?
Nope, place was devoid of bloodsuckers
Maybe some poltergeists though
This is the next challenge
>time to take the team through the tunnels to pripyat
>SORRY BRO THIS IS CoP, YOU'VE GOTTA FORK MONEY TO GET THE SEVA SUIT REQUIRED
>Well okay that's a lot of money and that's gay, but I guess I'll go grind it out someplace
>SORRY DUDE THIS IS VANO YOU'VE GOTTA GRIND MORE RU TO PAY FOR MY SUIT ALSO
fucking bullshit, literally missions you complete buy buying shit you need with YOUR MONEY, making the mission outside of getting to pripyat one you have no incentive to do because it can't possibly be worth it
Playing the latest Misery release btw, I'm glad they finally got it sorted out into something really spectacular.
It's an old fire watch station at the highest point in the black hills
It's not the mod's fault one mission just has a shitty structure, pay-money-to-advance
And one mission being more inconvenient is far better than the whole game just throwing money at you like in vanilla, which is experience ruining
is Lost Alpha any good? It's been patched a couple times now
>Play each of the stalker games just once immediately after they came out (Bought all of them on release date)
>Still actively participate in stalker threads across various 4chan boards and even local stalker fansite (I think it died months ago and the forum went from like 10 posts per minute to one or two in a day)
am i a faggot
>I keep looking around for some sick ass exoskeleton armor but it's no where to be found
You can only buy them unless you're willing to wait into really, really late in the lategame where you can't even go back anymore.
Ignore the guy, he's just spouting some buzzwords he himself doesn't even understand. Lost Alpha basically follows the Olddocumentdesignstory.pdf-era plot for S.T.A.L.K.E.R. : Shadow of Chernobyl but one of the Dez0wave team members, Loxotron, who was in charge of the project for some time, decided that they should mix up the already-existing plot with some unnecessary and mindbogglingly stupid Illuminati elements. They aren't a HUGE part of the story, but the little you get is kinda obnoxious. Anyway, the biggest annoyance of Lost Alpha, in my opinion anyway, were unskippable in-game cutscenes, bad scenario design around early-to-midgame(Dead City and Army Warehouses had a bunch of stupid bullshit) and Clear Sky-tier linearity(can only go to maps when the plot calls for it) as well as the seeming lack of replay value since there's almost no surprises the A-Life of the game throws at you and many setpieces are designed to be played the same way every time and allow little room for making up your own strategies for them which,in my opinion anyway,is actively deterring playing the game ever again.
does anyone have the pictures of the STALKER 2 character that was supposed to look like putin?
Fucking nice. I want to try that when I live move to alaska
I'm looking for shit like this, where would one obtain gear like that? it would be partly for some airshit with friends, but also when he cheeki-breeki it up in the sticks of eastern kentucky. I got a buddy with around 20~ acres of land near old farm town that's devoid of (natural) life and would like to survive.
PvP maps are shoebox sized, that's the only resemblance, well other than being an FPS game.
Still waiting for them to come out with the real STALKER-y parts of it (co-op and freeplay).
>ound it: http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-2417685/Police-hunt-mysterious-figure-walked-Swiss-woods-day-wearing-gas-mask-boiler-suit-cloak-TEN-YEARS.html
If i remember right, after this article appeared he got a lot of unwanted attention. He left a note suggesting he's going to kill himself and was never seen again. A true STALKER if there ever was one.
Can 100% guarantee you he thought it would be cooler to "disappear" like that than get caught by the police and have the mystery ruined on television. This way he preserved his air of mystery.
IDK man it's very elaborate. nothings given to you and personally it only feels like grinding if you make it that way.
it forces you to explore which is a reward in it's own right. so much shit i didn't experience the first 3 times i went through.
don't forget the utter insanity that is the backtracking, insanely long walking distances where NOTHING EVER HAPPENS along the way, the bullshit design that punishes you for even thinking of finding shortcuts, the awful quality loot, the stupid, hammy details like the Ringu little girl in a frame or the evil laughing skeleton that turn the zone into a cheap carnival ride, the stiff, unnatural and "quirky" dialogues and finally, the new voice acting being Call of Pripyat-tier.
it's functional and big, that's all it's got going for it. If i were in charge, i'd strip the story down, spend a year filling the zone with decent loot, AI, interesting quests and NPCs and making it less of a walk in the park.
Just started up a new game with LURK. Haven't played in a few years, and it definitely showed.
>tried getting the AK/armor hidden away in the town
>assault first group of bandits
>dark as fuck, battle is tense
>survive, get things going towards the bar
>in the past always kill the military under the bridge for their shit
>try that now
>get my shit pushed in within the first two seconds
>actually have to go through tunnel for once
>help wolf, all that jazz
>nigga with an ak right at the loading area pops me
>the fight to get to the next area is even more bloody than the first fight
>still dark as fuck
Goddamn this makes the game so much more intense.
I fixed the resolution. And I'd still have to alt tab to read the chat because I don't have dual monitors. Also no one wants to hear me talk. I try to alt tab as quickly as possible. Is it still noticeably bad?
But fellow stalker, I have brought required goods for of to make stalking.
Did you pay $15 to have yourself drawn as a shark?
No really though you pay people to draw your shark furry as a STALKER?
I paid a whole $0.00 for that one because I was Adam Jensen'd. I never asked for it. Also yes, I forgot to take off the name from another thread.
And here we are. Please don't ever (NAME) fag on this board. We're a community who doesn't appreciate cancer like furries. Go find some other relevant STALKER threads. I know you prefer /v/ anyway.
Yes. It looks bretty gud. Mfw I dun goofed
>We're a community who doesn't appreciate cancer like furries.
Bullshit, there are plenty of people on /k/ that are or tolerate furries, you are part of the group that does not, don't talk like you speak for everyone dipshit.
You realize where we are right? I've been in threads where people make sweet love to their rifles. /AK/ threads are a frequent occurrence, there are furries on the board, deal with the shit. I didn't post any of the artwork, you did. namefagging is not a problem if you put on a trip to maintain a line of posts for a thread. I forgot to take mine off and now sperglord actual is en route to Dorito Bay.
Now lets get back to stalkers
I posted a picture of Stoli vodka, tourist delight canned meat and a loaf of bread. You don't get more STALKER than that. I didn't post any of the artwork that has now ruined this thread. I mind my own business and keep things thread related.
Yeah, check your past broadcasts.
It freezes the game and then goes all black.
Its quite annoying, and unless you sound like a 12 year old kid with braces nobody should care about your voice.
You could use a tablet or even phone to check chat and just speak.
I can still tell you fuck off and die furnigger and there is nothing you can do about it.
My pleb windows phone won't let me chat unfortunately. Maybe I could incorporate sleeping and alt tabbing to make it feel more natural? You can hear some of my past broadcasts to get an idea of what my voice sounds like. No one is a fan of their own voice but I don't think people are particularly crazy about mine. This thread has about had it so :NEW THREAD >>22645023
Proving once again the worst thing about furries are the people that hate them. (And the really fucked up fetishes, but that's not really because of furries)
Also, welcome to /k/, weapons and general toleration for others hobbies/interests. We only really band together to hate libs and brownies.
I kinda get it, they have a set of morals in their head and they figure "If it goes against what I feel then it must be the end of the god damn earth" because otherwise they can't make the world make sense. Like hard core religious nutjobs, or neo-nazi's, or Anti-Gun groups.
Too bad they got a mental condition, life is a lot more fun if you just accept that nothing is connected and shit just happens, some people carry a 9mm, some a .45, some don't believe in your particular flavor of god, and some wish desperately that they were part animal and not the sad excuse for a sack of bones they actually are.
>Kinda like how we wish we were operators.
Indeed. Le Loyon is no more.
The mask and poncho were found in the forest with a note that was basically "These media assholes got everyone worked up. Fuck this, Le Loyon is dead" Less a suicide note than a fine-you-win note, seems to me.
I believe you're thinking of chips guy. That's from the early days of /out/.
Full disclosure I don't really care that you're a furry I just hated your retarded face and nametag .
Your picture looked so fucking stupid and your name was also so fucking stupid that I had to find more out about how stupid you were. The more I learned the more my hate grew. Furfagging is okay as long as it STAYS OFF /k/ but your picture looks retarded. No stalker atmosphere. Also based on what I found out your life is retarded too.
That's all well and good, but was it at all necessary to shit on this thread? My faggotry stays my own business, either you or another anon made it their mission to find and post it. I spend my money on what I want. I earned it, it's damned prerogative. So if I want to buy STALKER foodstuffs from the Ivans at the nugget store, I will. If I want to buy six pictures of a humanized UAZ getting a wrench job, who the fuck cares?
What the hell is a Stalker. Do you guys really stalk people innawoods?
SEVA suit is the best that I could find...even the NVGs on it are good.
I have made bank in that game by going into the Wild Territory and removing mercs, selling their shit to the bartender, going back and killing more.
