Barin - scripting
notanumber - project direction,layout and some serious testing.


DESCRIPTION
***********

This mod, or rather "feature", adds the ability to hire "assassins" to help you attack an area,
if you feel you are not well enough equipped but have spare change, or you just wanna have fun.


INSTALLATION
************

Just extract the .rar file to your stalker directory.

NOTE:IF YOU'VE NEVER USED A MOD BEFORE THEN YOU WILL NEED TO DO THE FOLLOWING:

change this line in fsgame.ltx

$game_data$ = false| true| $fs_root$| gamedata\

to:

$game_data$ = true| true| $fs_root$| gamedata\


REQUIREMENTS
************

Stalker shoc vanilla patched to 1.0004 (although notanumber did test this on 1.0005, the final product was not, but I dont
see why it shouldnt work)

Widescreen.

You need to start a new game.


INSTRUCTIONS
************

Start a new game and speak to sid. He will give you a laptop and explain what it is used for.
When you have a bit of money, double click the laptop item in inventory, or right click and select "use".
The laptop will open and give you five fields that need to be completed (buttons).
If you are not sure if you have enough money, just click the pricelist button and check.

Field 1) Level :- select the level you are on.

Field 2) Area :- select the area you want to attack from the list.

Field 3) Rifle :- Select what rifles your squad will be equipped with.

Field 4) Outfit :- Select what suits your squad will wear (doesn`t determine their faction, they are "assassins" ).

Field 5) Amount :- Select how many "assassins" you would like to hire.

Once all the fields have been completed correctly, you will be shown the cost and receive a "Buy" button.
If you feel its too expensive, or changed your mind, just press "ESC" or "cancel" and the order will be cancelled.
Alternatively, if you want to go ahead, click on the check-out cart to buy.

If the population of the area is = 0, you will be made aware of this and the order will be cancelled.

If you already have an active squad, you will be made aware of this and the order will be cancelled.

If all conditions have been met, the cost will be deducted from your money, including 50 ruebles per "assassin" for ammunition,
and your squad and its equipment will be deployed to the area, and the battle will ensue, no matter how far away on the level you are.
You will receive a message of their success or failure whether you leave the level that the "assassins" are on or not.

"Assassins" are neutral to ecologists only.

Be sure, if you choose to attack duty ,freedom or stalkers, that you have finished your business with them first, or you might affect the storyline.

Any area attacked will not affect your relationship with that faction, because... well... they dont know you hired
the assassins, and if you dont tell them, I wont

Thats it. Enjoy.



KNOWN ISSUES
************

DO NOT delete _g.script, it sorts out a few issues.

The last feature I added to this mod was to show the population of your squad and the target on the HUD while the battle is on,
however, it is a known fact that if you save a game while you have a squad in action, the saved game will not load giving an
error [error][ 87] invalid parameter, and besides this, it can knock the FPS hard on a weak to middling PC. There are a few options here :

1) Dont save while a squad is in action and all will be fine (obviously FPS still affected).

2) You can disable the HUD population textures by editing "ui_squad_embark.script" and commenting out lines 540, 559, 579, 1087, 1115
IE. adding -- infront of the lines

3) If you decide to disable the HUD textures and still want a way of checking the population and dont mind huge log files, just edit
"ui_squad_embark.script" and uncomment (remove the -- ) line 539, this way you can press the ~ key (tilde) and will see the population
being printed to console in this order (squad_pop,gulag_pop), and your FPS will be much improved as well.

My apologies, i left one thing out of the patch.
In bind_stalker actor_binder:net_destroy() add the line :
ui_squad_hud.remove_new_hud()
 
Each word should be at least 3 characters long.
