As Cheech once said "They are different but the same, man!"
I like both versions.

Agreed. I've been enjoying the vanilla game lately, but will undoubtedly install ZRP again at some point. Either one is always an excellent choice.

Still more Yurik...

Lately I've been dabbling here and there with breaking various aspects of the game and just recently came up with a rather fool-proof method for saving Yurik without killing any Loners before getting at least one of the four to enter the Cordon afterward without fail. It's pretty simple too.

All you have to do is complete Bes' mission first-thing without having triggered the Yurik/Trenchcoat Loner standoff before saving Nimble, then go back to the Cordon and save Nimble. Three of the four will generally join Bes' camp, while the fourth (usually Yurik) will wander aimlessly through the Garbage. As long as the lone wanderer ( ) is still alive when you talk to Nimble after saving him, they'll very likely be the next Loner to pass through the Cordon entrance. That's it.

Are you keeping Nimble from going on-line when you bypass him going to that scenario?
I tried this in the past but found Nimble dead because I got near him when going north.

No, what I did was pretty strange. I skipped talking to Wolf and grabbed the PB from the trailer near Tolik, and then proceeded to kill all bandits in the car park except one. For some reason they wouldn't attack Nimble without the mission being activated.

From there I took out the two bandits at the Cordon outpost and picked up a decent condition Viper 5. After entering the Garbage and avoiding the trigger area for Yurik and friends I collected the hidden 9x19 ammo from the scrapyard, went back around the Garbage pile over by the hangar so as not to be seen approaching before ventilating Vasya Boar's skull to kick off the festivities. I finished the rest off from my usual spot inside the bus nearest to the bandits before speaking to Bes and ending Yurik's dilemma. Because of how I timed it there were no spawning bandits to prematurely trigger the Trenchcoats either, it was perfect.

After that I spoke to Wolf, then took the Rambo option from Petruha before stealthily executing the single bandit guarding Nimble. Then I went back to the Garbage level changer just in time to catch Yurik's entrance before he moved on to the camp near the tunnel from the Dark Valley. That was basically the whole sequence.

I don't know of anyone that has altered the version of events for the
Cordon & Garbage as much as you have. This would make great video.

I might actually do that at some point. At least show the weird order in which I complete objectives during the first part of the game along with the Yurik trick, how I set up and complete all of the assassination missions and camp eliminations without making any major enemies, how to combine the Freedom and Duty AW quests, the Sniper VLA trick, etc. I highly doubt that my current PC could handle recording and playing simultaneously, but I'll test it out sometime.

Try the trial version like I did. If you like it you can buy it or not if you
don't mind their logo. It's not supposed to take a performance hit on
your PC like other recorders. Let me know if you need help with settings.

I actually did try Bandicam a little while back and even it drops my framerate to levels that I deem unacceptable. But I'll play around with lowering my in-game settings, so perhaps you'll get to see some really ugly videos of me running around and breaking stuff within the near future.

What are your system specs? I know you mentioned it before
but I forgot. Often just a new video card can do the trick.

Eh, I pretty much need a new everything:

A8-5500 3.2 GHz
8 GB RAM
HD 6570

Pretty weak, but I got it all very cheap a few years back. Lately outside of the 2D games that I make I hardly play anything other than a handful of hours of STALKER per week. But someday I'll build a real gaming system.
