We have been working on this mod since early May, and now it's finally ready! We wanted to release it in August, but when the new patch came, we had to re-create the mod from the beginning. To tell you the truth, when we noticed in early July that we can add level changers we decided to release Priboi later and released the free-play mod first. Eventually that mod turned into the base for this one, and also the Oblivion Lost mod. We added many more changes and features since then, so we hope you will enjoy this game as much as we did the developing it...
Note1: This only works with 1.0004 or 1.0005 (won't work with older versions)
Note2: Russian, French, and German translations will be available soon!
Note3: Updates for the new patches will be available soon!
A Little Story
Approximately one year has passed since the Marked One's story. You are the military Lieutenant Priboi Slipchenko, and you were sent into the Zone...
There was a secret organization, called UHSF, and they were responsible for the incident. They had a base at Dead City (Limansk?) but the mercenaries whipped them out in the late 80's. The organization fell apart, and the last living members disappeared until today. Somehow this story is connected to the Marked One's story, and you'll eventually find out how. Over 20 important classified documents were hidden in the zone and you will need to find them to complete the puzzle. You will need to be "Sherlock Holmes" and dig deeper in the zone then you have ever done before.
If you find a missing document, you will need to read it to obtain information about the case, or get some clues about where to look next. You are in the Zone again, but it has changed. While the zone appears to have become a better place to survive in, but this has only caused it to become more difficult as it has driven more mutants from the center of the zone, and has increased the amount of threats in the Zone. The mercenaries have gained control on the Agroprom factory, and the
military was pushed back to Cordon. You might be their only hope...
At the game start, you will need to read the PDA, and make sure to check it often! It will be helpful, and you can find anything you want in the PDA. After you talk to the military commander and the major, do not forget to talk to "buddy" too. He is the village chief. Almost every conversation was re-written, so you should talk a lot with people. During your missions, you will notice the Zone from a different person's perspective. You will know the secrets that you were unable to find in the Marked One's story... You may meet with Strelok, Doc, and of course Dezik Lohnar (dezodor), Kanyhalos, NatVac, Don Reba, Siro, Darius6 and a lot of important
members of the dez0wave team.
We wish you a good play!
**One question, you may ask after you read this text: What is UHSF?
UHSF is the one and only United Hungarian Stalker Forums. So nothing big, it's just our camp in the Zone world. If you are wandering around, just check in, and grab a beer, or two.
What's new? (1.0)

- The Bandits, Freedom, Monolith, and Mercenaries begin as enemies towards you.
- Mercenary base at Agroprom (The former military base...)

- Random blowouts and less psy emissions.
- No dead-zone at Stancia2, so you can explore the level from the ground.
- Be aware! The radiation is your invisible enemy, you can't see it with your eyes!
- Added a lot of monsters and artifacts at Stancia2, so be prepared for fight.
- You can go back from Stancia2 to Monolith's War lab, and the Sarcophagus.
- At Stancia 2 you can use the removed ladders, so you can climb to the roofs,
or to the other chimney of the reactor block 1 & 2! (good for sniping)
- Because we thought that the teleports are a way too futuristic for this game
you can use the ladders to climb up to the roof instead of the teleports.
- From Sarcophagus, you can go back to Stancia1.
- From Stancia1 you can go back to Pripyat (as in the free play story mod)
- There was a secret monolith base at Radar level, check the PDA for a level

section to learn things about the Zone and the factions.
- Restored the sun that was left out. (Thanks xStream for the help)
- Less generic skins for NPCs.
- Barmen, Petrenko can now repair your gear.
- Many more little changes (weapons, items, monsters...) that you will notice.
- You can sell your torch, bolt and other stuff, but then you can't use the
night vision or headlamp, until you buy a new torch, and also it's a good idea
to use the bolts, because of there are a lot of invisible anomalies...
- You can put a lot of stuff to your belt, like the carried explosives, devices,
some quest items, artifacts, and torches as in the "old stalker"...

- While driving the APC (BTR) you can open/close the windows with 'L' button
3. You can uninstall Priboi by running STARTS.T.A.L.K.E.R. - Priboi StoryUninstall utility or you can uninstall Priboi by running AddRemove applet in Control Panel
Something you need to know
1. During the level design, we added many objects to the game. These objects are from the SDK raw objects folder. We just edited them, added bones, and properly exported them to OGF format. It is not an easy job, but because it's free stuff you may use them for your mods, just mention our name in the credits.
We also included the actor editor objects, but with bones and perfect shaders, so if you don't want to edit them, just hit export to ogf, and you can spawn them.
2. You will notice, that you can walk through some objects near a smart terrain or used AI locations (only some trees, the other objects have bones). This one was needed to fix the invalid vertex for object error.

Our mod team started with two members, dezodor, and wavetrip. our first project was returning the blowouts in the game in early April. After the first version, we met LSSNeitrino, who was working on the same stuff, but with random blowouts. We decided to help each other, and we released a new version with better effects, and killing radiation and also better sound effects. LSSNeitrino is a great scripter, he managed to add some NPC reactions and spawning cutout monsters after the blowout so we kept
the original idea, and during the months we made the effects and sounds better. Many modders loved the new sounds of the blow, so we still see those sounds in many great mods.
Our second project, the UHSF mod was our first big mod, that's when Kanyhalos joined us. We managed to remove the blowout and the dead zone from the NPP levels, also added clean weather to the dark areas, so that was the main thing about the old UHSF mod with cars and cutout mutants. That was the time when wavetrip left the team...
The free play story project was the first mod with free play possibility through level changers. In early July the level changers took you back from the NPP (point of no return) to Pripyat through the Sar. We also added back the vehicles (the old forgotten Moskvich to) and more cutout mutants, better weather, blowout and many more little changes. The free play mod was our first really big success.
Then the time came, and we decided to create a new project, called the Priboi Story. The team fell apart and dezodor was alone with the project. Kanyhalos helped him with ideas and also helped him with collecting coordinates and spawning mutants. After 2-3 months of editing the files, the mod began to work fine, and the motivation rose. The first breaking point was the 1.0004 patch, because we needed to re-create the mod from the beginning. In October we decided to abandon the mod, because we wanted to add many stuff, that we were unable to add. Thank god we met Barin, Kailniris, Natvac, Siro and Darius6. Barin helped us a lot with the missions. Kailniris helped us with modeling work, Natvac helped us with scripting and solutions, Darius6 with sound fixes and ideas, and Siro gave us cool textures and also helped with correcting the text. So everyone had their own task to complete. This is the first storyline mod for Stalker.
The Oblivion Lost Project team asked us to work with them last month, so we will create mods with the OLP name, instead of dez0wave from now. It will be the same, but with more modders, more ideas, and faster work.

"It doesn't work," came the reply after a suitable pause. Exasperated, I asked, "What doesn't work?" Said the Nymlit, "It doesn't work."
the "plain vanilla" notes should be in the readme in the next release, to be ignored pretty much as before
