I remember seeing NPCs appear around Yanov Station on more than one occasion. There probably is some form of teleportation with existing NPCs that's similar to what can be seen in SoC's Twilight Zones. And I only ever recall finding stalkers who were killed by emissions within a radius of my position that would fall within the online switch distance, so they most likely are immune to the damage of emissions while offline.

They dont die in offline

Anyways, CoP is not perfect . But I love the way they handled its UI. This is something ALL games must learn from.

*Including bloated UI simulator Witcher 3.

They did a very nice job with streamlining the UI in CoP. Pity that the PDA doesn't give nearly as much information as SoC, though. I always miss the ranking system when I play the later games, along with seeing the kill stats and list of completed missions.

I dabbled a bit with the first Witcher but was never able to find much enjoyment in the combat. It's one I've always been meaning to return to as it sounds like an interesting series, but RPGs are usually so time consuming. Anymore I hardly play anything outside of S.T.A.L.K.E.R.

That's what usually happens to me. I try another game and the combat
sucks, the HUD is horrible, there's too much chatter and clutter in my view.

What I like about the UI in STALKER is that it can be EXTREMELY fast to navigate, unlike many other games.

Simple, logical, fast and generally very well done. A few minor tweaks and you have a perfect (function-wise) UI for the type of game STALKER is.

Yes, the perfect PDA for me would be some amalgamation of the SoC, CoP, CS and LA one.


Seriously, open world game devs, just copy this system...

Dont start with the games. Dont be a pleb .
Start with the books and then play Witcher. As God intended it to be.

As for the combat... Witcher 3 has a much different, much better combat system. Though there are people that like Witcher 1 combat... I am not one of them, but they do exist.

This is good propaganda from Witcher I guess

It also has a modified Bulgarian wedding song... used as a combat song. Was so awesome when I heard it

Charcharo~

I applaud your interest and love of the Witcher Games but do understand
I'm just not into sword and sorcery gaming. No doubt that it is extremely
popular, in addition to World of Warcraft, Skyrim and the LOTR type games
that are on the market. I like guns and modern conveniences. Sure I know
there are lots of combat games fighting Nazis, Muslims, and various other
groups from history or current events but I like the Stalker Games since
they have more of a survival element than military combat. I like the idea
of grabbing a backpack full of gear, a rifle and setting off in a world that is
in an apocalyptic type setting or one where you are dealing with wildlife or
men like yourself who can become an ally or foe depending on their motives.

Well, all those other games dont quite interest me as much as their focus is different... and more symplistic. I fell in love with a dysfunctional family and Eastern European fantasy world in the Witcher, that is why I like it.
Or part of the many reasons that is. As a game it reminds me of STALKER at times... and quite a bit.

Though my comment was not aimed at you Tejas, but Max

I had no idea that it was based on a book series when I first tried the game, as it's still somewhat obscure here in the U.S. and I've never read much "sword and sorcery" Fantasy outside of Tolkien and ASoIaF. The story has always sounded like one of the more interesting aspects of the series so I likely will give The Last Wish a read before attempting to get into the games again.

Yes. Though now, The Last Wish is a new york times bestseller

Do go at it. I hope the translation is good

Touché. Though I can't say I've ever really kept up much with sales charts, but it's cool that the series has become so popular over here. I think I will pick it up soon as I need something new to read.
