My 2nd longest Game where this took place was quite different than
my current one. I didn't necessarily take so long going to each level
like now but instead once I went to Pripyat and came back, that was
the point where I racked up the most time going all over the Zone.
In this Game, as you know I spent more time entering each level and
then going back and exploring and notating the changes more closely.
I paid more attention to when tasks were given and when others would
become available. Right now I've gone as far as the Red Forest. I do
not have any wandering NPCs that patrol Rostok going south and west.
In fact my Bar area ( eastern Rostok ) is at it's lowest point ever of the
extra NPCs found there. I have a single Dutyer around the campfire
hanger closest to Arnie. I have a single Loner around the campfire that
is in the hanger closest to the water tower. My Rostok is an empty town.
In my other Game, Military respawns passing through Rostok had killed
Arnie, the "Get out of here Stalker" Dutyer, the Loner that guards the
100 Rads Bar and the Loner that guards the small building between the
two Hangers. In my current Game I still have all those people, plus all
the Dutyers at their Base, the Dutyers guarding both entrances and all
the regular but variable Bar patrons. I just don't have crowds of NPCs
you normally expect in each of the hangers like I had earlier in the Game.
The largest crowd I had was right before I went to the Wild Territory.
In other words I had not gone to the WT or AW yet and I had so many
Loners & Dutyers walking around inside the Bar area and outside both
of the Duty checkpoints that they were going down all the roads outward.
After I opened the way, and they had places to go: WT, Yantar and AW,
their numbers decreased. I anticipate going to Pripyat would change that
where I might see some traffic again and maybe the patrolling Dutyers.
Some people have described the leader and other members of the Freedom
Base leaving it and being found in the Red Forest or Pripyat but I have never
seen that. That may be due to the ZRP Mod as it changes things besides fixes.
