Increasing carry weight?

Can someone please tell me how to increase the carry and max carry and movement weight in CoP?

I know it is technically a cheat, but I am trying to increase the carry weight a few kilos, and the max move weight as well. I cant seem to do it in CoP or rather, to find the files to edit. Can someone assist? I know someone out there knows how to do this.

One problem - it reads "Next open up 'actor.ltx' and scroll down to line 22.
Change this value to whatever you changed the 'system.ltx' value to, they do the same thing..."

But the value on that line reads 35 ; 50.0

Two values. Which one do I change to match the new weight?

anything after the ';' is ignored by the game. "50" was the original value and someone changed it to "35" - some modders like to leave the original value so they can change it back if they want.

just change the 35 to whatever you want and then change the other values in the system.ltx as well.

Well, I don't know. I'm beginning to feel pretty dumb.

I've changed the values in the files exactly as instructed (and changed fsgame.ltx to -
$game_data$ = true| true| $fs_root$| gamedata\ ) but it will still only let me carry 50k. I really don't know what I'm missing!

Do I have to start a new game?

no you shouldn't need to start a new game. if you are using mods then use the mod files, not the extracted vanilla files.

try this one set for 200:

Thanks, Angrydog. Unfortunately, the same problem. I don't know where in my files it is written again, but even with the max weight saying 200 after the mod, it won't let me pick up more than 50k (or I should say it turns yellow at 50k) and the red icon at 60k - no change. It reads the max weight has increased, but it won't let me carry over 60k.

Oh, yes, I used the extracted mod files from the sound mod 2.0. And a "crow fix" file.

I don't what other file is causing it, but I can't figure it out.


Edit/Update: I deleted the gamedata folder completely, re-added the Sound Mod 2.0 and the repeated the steps I did before. This time I left a system.ltx file in the root directory of gamedata and in the config directory (same file, just to see). Started over, and it seems to be working. I can carry 60k (that's all I wanted) instead of 50k. I picked up everything I can find and went slightly over 50k in weight (that took some time!) and this time I didn't get that yellow warning icon. So maybe it is working now. My thanks for your help angrydog. I owe ya one. Which place is the system.ltx supposed to go? Will it hurt to have it in two places? (At least it seems to be working)

I can already see the differences between the earlier STALKER games and this one. The look is different, the PDA, maps are very different, and the inventory looks more like CS than SoC. There are a lot of icons that come on the screen in this one that I don't know what they mean yet. This should be fun to learn. I hope to get back to it when healthy again.

Any CoP-rookie advice?

Most all the Suits allow upgrades to increase weight carrying
capacity and of course the use of Artifacts does this as well.

I've always thought the Fun of the Stalker Games was earning
money/upgrades/things through hard work, effort & Game play.

If that doesn't appeal to you and you are one to want instant
gratification then of course you can cheat...I mean Mod your way.

Normally I'd agree with you, Tejas. However, in this case, I feel the carry weight maximum of 50k is extremely low. It allows for one heavy armor, one assault weapon, pistol and shotgun and a few small items. Then you spend the rest of the game trying to find a way to carry an extra 5-10k in ammo or another weapon. I decided to forego the headache this time around and let myself carry an extra 10k. I have no idea when I might find a suit or artifact that may (or may not) allow me to carry more, so I added a +10k at the beginning. I'm just bad that way.


**edit/update: Well, I was premature in thinking that had solved it.

Despite having followed all the instructions, it still limits my carry weight to 50k, 60k max. If anyone has a clue as to why the changes to upgrade the carry weight as described above in this thread, has failed, please let me know what it is or what I can try. This is frustrating. I just don't get why it wont work. I followed all the edits to the letter, both times. I'm baffled. Would appreciate any suggestions I have not tried.

At the start of the game, grab the two sets of tools in Zaton, head to Cardan, get him drink and upgrade your Sunrise suit to carry +10 kg and reduce it's weight by 3.5 kg.

I always do that and almost have infinite stamina for light artifact runs.

Forgot to mention you can also drink the Stamina drink so
you can carry 20Kg extra that lasts for several minutes.

Additionally you have to get the 3 types of Tool Kits to the 2
different Repair Techs so they can upgrade the various Suits
to carry more weight. 1 Repair Tech is in Zaton and the other
in Jupiter. 2 Tool Kits are in Zaton, 2 in Jupiter, 2 in Pripyat.

Also there's the Hercules(?) strength enhancing drug. Combined I recall these two are much more effective than any artifacts in CoP, and much easier to find.

Sorry for the major Bump-

But the link referred to above is now dead. For the benefit of the original poster, myself, and other possible contenders, has anyone an idea where a good guide to this simple mod can be found? There's another link listed in this thread which is also dead.

Apologies

I could definitely have handled that reply/post better........

I'd just like to see a basic run through posted here on the forum for the benefit of anyone who wanted to fiddle their carry weight a little (or switch it back to where it belongs).

Currently, my carry weight IS NOT vanilla but, it's been that way for so long, I can't figure out how to switch it back to the original value.

Any help would be appreciated.

This might do it
http://stalkermod.wikia.com/wiki/A_simple_mod_example

Or for vanilla, could you copy installed COP folder elsewhere, re-install, replace new install with old. You could also save the unaltered copy for future mishaps.

I do this with all Stalker installations, with SOC for e.g. I have clean copies of 1.004 - 1.006. and can swap over to what a mod requires.

The reason the post was dead is, it's in the wrong section and was never
moved to the proper place to get the right amount of attention. Questions
about Modding go in the Mod Discussion area where Modders will see it.
You just re-animated a 5 year old Zombie and the OP is long, long gone.

I'll be darned.... I think that's the tutorial I remember from all that long ago.

I should have just thought to Google the key phrase in the original url.

It May Sound Trivial But.....

Lesson learned. I've done a sizable Word doc. with most of the basic technique for modding the fields of weight carried, starting cash, jump height, and loadout. Should have done all of THAT a couple of years ago, when folks were so helpful when I first asked, instead of a hodgepodge collection of bookmarks.

Once again, thank you for the help redux.

No problem, happy to help. The original link must've become orphaned when CoP: Redux became Wormwood, but luckily it's still listed within Beac's posted articles.
