Um, in addition to everything else and, in a vanilla game, I'm supposed to be watching out for landmines?!?!

In Clear Sky NPCs throw grenades at you instead (with pin-point precision).

Quite often it is a boar that sets the military in Cordon off. But why do they then attack the village?
---END QUOTATION---


I think the boars make the Military go into alert mode, which in turn makes them more "sensitive" to any stalkers nearby. Or they're simply noticing the Rookie Village while pursuing the boars in that direction. I all makes sense if you imagine them being seriously drunk and thus easily annoyed.

Do they think the stalkers there are making boars and training them to attack soldiers?
---END QUOTATION---



Well, yes, they actually do. They even talk about it sometimes.

In gamedata\sounds\characters_voice\human_01\military\states\idle idle_21 file you will find one soldier mumbling something like:
"They say that those beasts started to attack patrols at the nights... At the daytime they sc...w with each others, but at nights they gather into packs and kill us. Are the Stalkers commanding them or what? Bastards!!!"

Shadow of Chernobyl - Patch 1.0005

It's Day 17 in the Cordon. I'm ranked number 10 in the Game
and I have not sold or taken any jobs to give up a single Artifact.
I currently have eight suits, have not bought anything from Sid and
have managed to amass over 100,000 rubles from selling used weapons.

Good grief! I haven't had the chance to play for days, but I'm pretty sure I've been on my game for longer {in game days}, and am still not very far from the bottom-most rating {a figure of 945 springs to mind}. I may have made it to the 100,000 Ruble mark in that time {not sure}, but have spent a least 50,000 or so on replacement suits {plainly, not a wealth accumulating strategy}.

And I know I've sold numerous artifacts already, just to get to where I am so far.

Many more posts like this Tejas, and I may be convinced to scrub this game and start over. As I've said before, I believe indiscriminate gunfire on my part may have already compromised this game.

Please don't post too many pictures of your current stashes, or I'll really start getting depressed.

But I'll read your posts anyway.

Zone time ( conversion)

Game time vs. Real time
( Zone time compared to Actual time )
________________________________

01 minute = 06 seconds
10 minutes = 60 seconds
60 minutes = 06 minutes
( 1 hour )

05 hours = 30 minutes
10 hours = 1 hour
12 hours = 1 hour 12 minutes
24 hours = 2 hours 24 minutes
( 1 day )

48 hours ( 2 days ) = 4 hours 48 minutes
72 hours ( 3 days ) = 7 hours 12 minutes
240 hours ( 10 days ) = 24 hours
_____________________________________

I'm on Day 19 so that's about 46 hours of real time.
Keep in mind that I have not ever left the Cordon yet &
I'm still wearing the original Leather Jacket I got from Sid
that is down from it's original 10% protection to it's current 4%.
Here's a screenshot of my Cordon Armor and Artifact collection:

Another thing no one has mentioned is the longer I have stayed
in the Cordon, the more activated Purple Icon Stashes I have
received there. This means I got a Meat Chunk for health
and a Droplet for radiation removal. However what is
the greatest benefit is activating stashes in all the
levels ahead since that means I will have plenty
of supplies to benefit from as I continue not
to have to buy ANY supplies from Sid.

Still in the Cordon but this awaits me in Garbage.
Activated Purple Icon Stashes there: 6

I started a new game the other day and think I inherited a very high ranking (#1) from earlier games. Is that a bug?

I didn't see it but Petruha was killed immediately with his two men and
I had to kill all the Bandits myself. Maybe this was why Sid never offered
it but I wasn't going to waste my money on it anyway. In this Game I have
not had the need to buy a single item from Sid ( I'm proud of that ) and
for some reason the Military attacked the Rookie Village and I had to use
the grenades and 5.45 ammo I had been stockpiling to fight them off.
Wolf was killed so no more tasks from him. Just Nimble and 4 others
survived with me. I killed every soldier and then had to go to the base
myself and execute the lone Captain waiting for all his troops to return.

Sid only offers it before you talk to Wolf a "second" time. (That is, for turning in the car park quest.) It can be a pain to get the money for it, but I'd say it's worth getting! Oh, and it's also one of those things you might have to reload a save next to Sid a few times to get it to show up in his inventory.

Three Mile Island~

My ranking started in the upper 900s. I earned my way to number 1
in 19 days through kills of NPCs, mutants and all the tasks completed.

Xeros612~

I know the conditions for it to appear but other than collecting it, it's
just not worth the cost ( 30,000 rubles I believe ) since it will quickly
wear down and be useless. So far in this Game I have not had to buy
a single item. Looting has provided all I needed plus I use the Pistol a lot.

AtV~

Keep in mind while we are doing a lot of things you would like to do, there
is no harm in playing the Game for the first time at the pace you feel that
is comfortable. Have fun and you can always come back to do more later.
The average first time SoC Player finishes the entire Game in the 2nd or 3rd
week of playing and never finds this Forum or others. The average first time
Player that does find this Forum usually plays in the same amount of time
but posts to complain they are stuck in the last level ( Chernobyl ) and they
have radiation bad ( never learned how to use artifacts and sold them all )
and is out of anti-rads. Then they complain the NATO weapons they have
foolishly chosen are out of ammo and their last Quick or Auto Save is no
good because they never bothered to learn how to make any Manual Saves.

How can u spend soo mich time in Cordon, and that in Vanilla Game?Do you Play the same quests again and again?and how can u go to Place 1 in Rankings, i once made an Experiment i made all available quests there once and after that i killed every Single npc and still was gar away from top 100..
Anyways for me vanilla Cordon gets boring so fast..theres only Little Action..
Dont get me wrong Stalker is far away the Game i Player most,i Play it since it came out and sure spent more than 1000 reallife hours in the Zone, but Cordon already bored me on my First playtrough..
Its different in Mode like The NS or OL but even there i dont spend more then 2-3hours until i want deeper into the zone
 
Each word should be at least 3 characters long.
