The pseudodog takeover of the vehicle scrapyard is vanilla. The loners move to the former bandit camp in the back.

Automatic ammo boxing makes sure you always transfer full boxes of ammo when possible (30 rounds per box usually, depends on the ammo). In vanilla you sometimes moved boxes with rounds in the single digits.

And yes, the ZRP does change a lot of quest rewards. IIRC, most changes came from the Quest Overhaul mini-mod. Those money-only rewards sent to your account are modded, in vanilla you ALWAYS had to return to the quest giver to get your reward regardless of what the reward was (which was very annoying when you only had a single day to claim the reward, but since the ZRP also addresses this, I honestly feel the money-only transfer is unnecesary).

Maybe they've been sent there, or do other class loner wear exo?
And in what situation will they been sent there?

Some new questions, i found the anti rad hotkey(Ese+F1) will consume extra engery drink, is this supposed to be? How to prevent this?

About vehicle graveyard in garbage, after some time later the loners will be killed and replaced by a group of pseudodog, is this vanilla stuff or something managed by alife?

I notice that sometimes certain mutant will always carry their body part.
Example, those dogs corpse killed by duty at the entrance of bar, snorks in yantar factory (not in swamp and x16).

What do "automatic ammo boxing" change? I thought it moves ammo in package instead of scattered amount but it doesn't work, or it has other purpose?

Some auto quest like "kill bloodsucker in darkvally" have different reward as wiki says, is this changed by zrp?

And i encountered the bad spawn again. This time is some pseudodog outside of agroprom research institute. It seems like they will spawn out of the fence. Fixed by scripts of course.

MrSeyker, that's interesting. One test would be to launch the executable from a renamed gamedata\bin\ folder, to insure that the binaries in any parallel gamedata\bin\ folder are not being used by the gamedata\bin10006\ folder. I didn't see any direct reference to \bin\ in any of the 1.0004 binaries.
---END QUOTATION---



It doesn't seem it loads anything outside of the folder where the exe exists.

Tested a 1.0006 folder with an xrGame.dll I edited with some tweaks from Cut X-Ray. All of those are working fine when executing running that folder (it removes using items while searching bodies, for instance).

Then a folder with Codebro's 1.0008 binaries, which isn't particularily good, but it comes with working hud_adjust console commands.

Finally the unmodified 1.0005 folder.

Still have not tested the saves. Also, I'm wondering if I can run both folders at the same time.

Master loner stalkers either have to be sent there (like Scarecrow) or are just passing through. You can increase the odds by adding master loners to the gamedata\config\misc\smart_terrain_presets.ltx file. Edit that file and change this:
__________
[l06_rostok]

stalker		= experienced, veteran

¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯
to this:
__________
[l06_rostok]

stalker		= experienced, veteran, master

¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯
This will allow the possibility of master loners to move to Wild Territory to fill any new openings in the camps there.

Revisiting this old post. I was doing a test with the 1.0006 libraries, placing them in a folder called bin10006 and running the executable from there with ZRP, and it works.

What this means is you can Frankenstein your installation folder, keep your 1.0005 bin intact and install the official 1.0006 bin, the various repacks or even unofficial patches like the one above in their own separate folders.

What i have not determined yet is if saves made with the updated libraries will load while running the 1.0005 bin/exe.

For the dog script, if the bug occurs with another mutant, do i have to type the code or simply just click go?
Didn't happened but just in case.
Beside, i've delete 6 normal and 3 strong dog last time because i just ignore it then deal it much later
---END QUOTATION---


You'll have to type in the section name for the mutant type/rank to be sure to get the one you think is causing the problem. Examples include dog_strong, flesh_weak, boar_normal. Then click "Go".

Mutants are spawned with names based on their section names with an ID number appended. So if the next available ID is 14959, a new dog_normal would be spawned as dog_normal14959. You could just delete the dog_normal spawns with ID numbers from 14950 to 14959 by using dog_normal1495, which would also delete any dog_normal with an ID of 1495. If the entry typed in the edit field matches the beginning of the name of an entity, that entity will be removed from the game.

>> the requirment is really hard since after freeplay i rarely see master loner in wild territory.

Yes, it is. The only master loner I ever see in Wild Territory is Scarecrow, after I return to Wild Territory after getting the documents from X16. If he died, I would actually make a save before searching him, and kept reloading that save until a search of his corpse yielded that secret. But I play through new games all the time, so now I just give myself the secret if he dies.

---QUOTATION---
I read page 336 and there's question: "Corrupted Save warning dialog"
Do this break my save (even i restart a gameplay?) or it's just a log? If it does break, what's the fix?
---END QUOTATION---


It is saying that your game is already broken; the save you loaded is corrupt if you see the warning. The warning message is "SAVE FILE IS CORRUPT - Load earlier save". If you ignore the warning, it will likely crash eventually. If you make a save after seeing that message, that save may also contain broken objects that might crash your game when you load that save. Shutting down your game and restarting it will not fix the damage that is already in these saves. The only saves that will work are those made before the game was corrupted.

But the autosave for the last level (with all the teleporters) is okay if you only went there once after starting free play. The corruption happened after the autosave was loaded.

The fix is adding the code "or {}" before the "end" keyword in line 82 of ZRP 1.07's gamedata\scripts\_custom_ext_zrp_mm.script as described on that page. (Or update to ZRP 1.09, which has the fix.) Since all saves made after that autosave will be bad, you can't proceed without the fix. This is the only known cause of save corruption due to ZRP code.

>> Maybe i'll delete all my save and upgrade to zrp 1.09.

If you have only used vanilla or vanilla with ZRP, you don't need to delete all your saves. If you have any saves made after first returning to Stancia 2 in free play with MonoMartyrs enabled, those saves won't be reliable, but the other 1.07 saves should work just fine with 1.09. It would take some effort, though. You would have to remove the 1.07 gamedata, install the 1.09 gamedata and then re-configure your game with the Modifier to your preferences.

>> I see 1.09 is experimental, does this mean this isn't stable version?

It is experimental because, other than veterans like 100RadsBar, fellow and RK Roadkill willing to play through the same boring vanilla games with the new bug-fix releases and then reporting their feedback, I have only my own experiences on a couple of PCs to say how stable the game is with these early 1.09 releases. ZRP 1.09 has changed a lot since 1.07, with both optimizations and bug fixes (including the fix for the Stancia 2 MonoMartyr bug you encountered), as well as some support for spawning cut mutants and improved documentation and updated Modifier support based on information gained from those looking at the source code -- now you really can set the hit_probability for the NPCs, for example.

ZRP 1.09 is probably more stable than ZRP 1.07 R5RC, but it has not been tested enough yet to be declared official. Some optimizations may need tweaking to work on all systems. Changes are still being made. And I'd like to finish updating the rest of the AI Addons to work with it.

I personally recommend the latest 1.09 release, though. It has so much more in it to make the game a smoother, more immersive experience than 1.07.

After i spent some hours in game (zrp only of course), i've encountered ctd when changing level. I checked log file but no FATAL ERROR. For example, i enter bar from garbage, the game crash, reload bar autosave will crash. Load quicksave in garbage might crash, but garbage autosave won't. It seems like i picked some buggy items or something else that break my save. Any clue for me to do troubleshooting?
---END QUOTATION---


Yes, it sounds like a buggy item, because it goes with you to the Bar. Let me think about it a bit.

Thanks for help!

I guess artifacts are stuck somewhere, cause place i find them again are full of anomalies or too dark that i can't look around carefully.
As i always search and break any boxes in every level, i don't think is the second reason, i'll try esc c in earlier save.

For the dog script, if the bug occurs with another mutant, do i have to type the code or simply just click go?
Didn't happened but just in case.
Beside, i've delete 6 normal and 3 strong dog last time because i just ignore it then deal it much later

About secrets, i agree with you, but i'm surprised to know "the lucky one" and secrets in readme file since i never find them in all my gameplay even the longest one (maybe 60 in-game day without sleepbag) I've checked the file and saw the requirment is really hard since after freeplay i rarely see master loner in wild territory.
Just some whine though.

I read page 336 and there's question: "Corrupted Save warning dialog"

I see 1.09 is experimental, does this mean this isn't stable version?

Here's a question i'm not sure if fits this topic.

>> it's just wrong impression of b)?

I'm guessing that sometimes they stay "stuck" for a while, poaa. Sometimes you'll see their graphical decoration: shimmers, distortion of the environment, surfaces glowing from the artifact, while the artifact itself is not visible. You can sometimes move over it and it can pop up into view as you bump it. You can test this out if you have debug mode enabled: If you find an artifact in a certain location, you can save that game, then load a save made much earlier in the same location. Go to the place you found the artifact and press Esc C to grab all useful objects in a 10-meter radius. You'll probably pick it up unless it rolls there from somewhere else. (Moonlights and Fireballs tend to do this.)

There is another reason you can find artifacts in a spot later: Mutants or NPCs can break crates or cases which can randomly spawn one or more artifacts. This actually happens quite a bit in X19. One way to know this is to enable "Notify on Contents Found" in Modifier > _ZRP.cfg > Cases and Crates.

>> i've encountered the "bad dog" bad spawn location bug
>> i'm wonder if there is a fix for this?

For some reason, the transition to free play may occasionally spawn a dog or two that is not formed correctly. The game crashes trying to switch one of these malformed dogs online, as mentioned in the link you posted. Kudos to you for successfully researching and solving your problem.

Well, there's a "cure" for the crash that results, but it is not a preventative bug fix. The "cure" is in the 1.09 XR3 release. The file is z_fix_doggie.script, found in gamedata\scripts\optional. You can use it in your ZRP 1.07 game as is, since you enabled the ZRP Support Utilities in your game. Just copy that file over to your gamedata\scripts\ folder. It will appear in your ZSU dialog as "Remove Dog_Normal". If you encounter the crash on a level, load the last save that you made on that level before the crash (might be an autosave), then press Esc Z to bring up the ZSU dialog and select the utility. Select the edit box and type "dog_normal", then press Enter or click the Go button.

This will remove all the dog_normalnnnnn mutants on the level. (They should be replaced after a bit with new ones.) Go to the point where you previously crashed. If it doesn't crash in the area, make a named save as a base for continued play. You should not have trouble after that, but if it turns out that other mutants can cause this crash, the same script can remove them from the game as well.

The crash was rare for me, but it happened more than once in quite a few games played well into free-play, enough to persuade me to create and include the utility in the latest release. It never happened more than once in any game if it did happen.

---QUOTATION---
About stashes, i found some stash info is nearly impossible to obtain unless i don't limit secret chance to one search per body. I almost sure some certain body contain more than one secret, and those are very hard to get from ramdom guys.
---END QUOTATION---


Yes, some secrets are hard to obtain, but I vaguely recall reading that this situation is intended by the developers as a way to make the gameplay experience different for every play-through, and that the player isn't meant to get that many secrets in a game. Under the covers, the code is using a lottery system to select from a pool of available secrets for particular situations based on level, faction, rank, game progress, etc. And this selection only happens one in three searches of previously-unsearched bodies.

To override that limit: Modifier > Vanilla.cfg > Body Search -- Uncheck "Limit Secret Chances to One Search per Body" and click Apply. You won't get any more secrets from a particular body if the pool of secrets for that body is depleted. And there's still that one-in-three chance...

Alternatively, you can use the "Force Possible Secret" utility after installing the ZSU's Secret Script Stuff.

---QUOTATION---
Last question is about monomartyr, after i finish the game and enter freeplay, i can't enter the last level(the one with many teleporters) unless i turn off monomartyr. And how should i do to prevent them spawn in the bar map, it's quite annoying that they stand in a group of loner and duty makes me easily to hurt wrong guy.
---END QUOTATION---


For the first part of your question, yes, that's a bug in 1.07. See my first post on page 336 in this thread for a fix:

---QUOTATION---
https://www.gsc-game.com/main.php?t=community&s=forums&s_game_type=xr&thm_id=11786&page=336&sec_id=16
---END QUOTATION---


This is fixed as of the first ZRP 1.09 release.

For your second part of your question: The answer is in gamedata\modcfg\MonoMartyr.cfg.txt at the bottom of the file. (This is the file that appears when you select the Config Notes button while the MonoMartyr.cfg file is selected in the drop-down combobox.) Oh, wait a minute -- that's in ZRP 1.09 XR3.

The solution is the same for 1.07 R5RC as it is for the 1.09 releases. Open gamedata\scripts\_custom_ext_zrp_mm.script in a text editor and find
l05_bar. On the next line, put a pair of hyphens in front of ["military"] so that it looks like this at the beginning of the line (some stuff omitted for brevity):

  l05_bar = {
    -- ["military"] = {pos=vector [...] }
  },

Save the file and enjoy a MonoMartyr-free Bar.

Thanks for the reply, i already know a), i think it's b) for me.
But after about 30 in-game days i found a few artifacts in certain map(agroprom underground, x18 lab, hill in garbage) which makes me think they respawned, so it's just wrong impression of b)?

Another question, i've encountered the "bad dog" bad spawn location bug in this page
https://www.gsc-game.com/index.php?t=community&s=forums&s_game_type=xr&thm_id=11786&page=262&sec_id=16
same bug, same location, and solved with same method, i'm wonder if there is a fix for this? It took me three hours to trouble shooting and one hour to learn the fix.

About stashes, i found some stash info is nearly impossible to obtain unless i don't limit secret chance to one search per body. I almost sure some certain body contain more than one secret, and those are very hard to get from ramdom guys.

Last question is about monomartyr, after i finish the game and enter freeplay, i can't enter the last level(the one with many teleporters) unless i turn off monomartyr.
