New tips on previous page...

I'm 20 days into Zaton. All those Stalkers I killed were ONLY Zombies:

I think I'm going slower than you are?!
I payed a Stalker to go with me to the Sawmill (2 of them were with me), but they saw bandits at the nearby campfire and ran down the hill to kill them. I just cleared out the Zombifieds myself. My loadout is VERY similar to yours. I seem stable now and thoroughly enjoying the playthrough.
I haven't grabbed the Fine Tools yet.

I'm 20 days in but have NOT done these yet:

- Meet Petruha & Awl at the Boiler Anomaly.

- Taken out the Mercenaries for Owl at the Recycling Plant.

- Done "The Hit" at the Taras Shevchenko. Have not talked to Sultan yet.

- Recover Snag's chest in the Snork lair near the Gas Station.

I was near the docks and saw a Chimera in the bayou between Noah's
Barge and the Taras Shevchenko. I went to Noah's Barge to climb the
tower to shoot at it. It came near me and tried to attack me as I kept
hitting it. Unexpectedly Noah got involved and I guess I left the door
open when I went in. The Chimera went in and killed him. I killed the
Chimera shortly after. I had made a save right before all this happened
and was prepared to go back to it but I got the 2 Compass early and I
noticed that Noah's Dog survived. Normally Noah gets killed anyway
in my long Games when Bandits are passing and/or go there to seek
shelter during an emission. Since the Pseudodog is usually killed too
I decided to let things be since at least the animal survived this ordeal.

Out of your list...I've only done the Boiler Anomaly.
I also gave the Mercs food and retrieved the Fine Tools. I reduced the Armor's weight 5kg with the upgade tree.
I will side with the Stalkers soon (with Sultan) and I want to try your advice with the Bloodsuckers Lair. No crashes for a long time now.

Another tip with the Skadovsk and Zombies. If you go there each
evening, Zombies will pass by it in the night. First of all make sure
you pay attention to the display number of people on board. Since
you don't get "beeps" like SoC does when more people appear or
have a PDA that identifies contacts, that number is your only clue.

To be able to take a weapon to the highest roof deck in the rear,
equip a pistol or AKSU ( AKM-74/2U ) and then get on board from
the tug ( or go forward all the way and come back ) and then go
up the ladder. Other weapons will holster and not come back out
but with those weapons they will either remain out like the pistol
or let you bring them back out ( most of the time ) and once on
top, you can switch to a better scoped weapon. Zombies don't
always appear within range to be detected on your mini-map so
keep an eye out during the day and at night using night vision.
Watch the mini-map to look for red dots if they come within range.

Yep, I just found the red dots and capped two of them.

Another thing I'm doing that I forgot to mention has to do with the
Emissions. Even though the Player can find the 3 doses of Anabiotics
in Zaton and take them for immunity and get the "Marked by the Zone"
achievement, I do not do this. The reason is I think that makes the
Game too easy. I actually enjoy being caught out in the open and
having to scramble for cover like everyone else. It makes you pay
attention to the time and place you're at. I do carry one dose of the
Anabiotics just in case I don't make it, but I've never had to use it yet.
One thing you can do if you are with a group of Stalkers when you get
an emission warning is to immediately go to the squad leader and ask
to be taken to the Skadovsk and the delay in time is given for travel.
I only do that if I'm overloaded with loot. Otherwise I will make the
same effort as any Stalkers or Bandits I am with to go seek shelter.

I thought I would do a time conversion chart in this Game to see the
time of each emission on a daily basis to determine an average time.

August 03 - 12:08
August 04 - 08:19 > 20h 11m
August 05 - 04:43 > 20h 24m
August 05 - 21:49 > 17h 06m
August 06 - 18:17 > 20h 28m
August 07 - 19:58 > 23h 41m
August 08 - 15:46 > 19h 48m
August 09 - 16:03 > 23h 17m
August 10 - 12:05 > 20h 02m
August 11 - 09:50 > 21h 45m
August 12 - 07:33 > 21h 43m
August 13 - 07:22 > 23h 49m
August 14 - 00:22 > 19h 00m
August 14 - 22:23 > 22h 01m
August 15 - 13:50 > 15h 27m
August 16 - 12:11 > 22h 21m
August 17 - 11:52 > 23h 41m
August 18 - 10:44 > 23h 52m
August 19 - 00:49 > 14h 05m
August 19 - 21:03 > 20h 14m
August 20 - 20:58 > 23h 55m
August 21 - 13:40 > 16h 42m
August 22 - 08:10 > 18h 30m
August 23 - 00:21 > 16h 11m
August 23 - 21:47 > 21h 26m
August 24 - 22:15 > 24h 28m
August 25 - 17:00 > 18h 45m
August 26 - 17:36 > 24h 36m
August 27 - 10:25 > 16h 49m

So in a 24 day period, the most common times were about 20 hours
or 23 hours between emissions. This was within a range of 14 hours
at the least and 24 hours at the most. 16 hours or 21 hours were the
2nd most common duration. My latest stat is 29 emissions in 25 days.

I used the 'can you take me somewhere' thing with squad leaders when blowouts were starting, usually because I felt they'd never make it to cover otherwise. Seemed to work just fine - they lived through it and so did I as the blowout is over when you arrive.

But last time I tried it it was a lone stalker. He took us to Yanov, then died on the doorstep as we arrived. Seems it doesn't always work.

I was following 2 Bandits when I saw a flaming Chimera coming straight for us:

I kept visiting the Iron Forest vault everyday waiting for it to crack.
Eventually it will crack open wide enough to go inside to loot it early:

Grab the 5.56:

The 5.45:

The Eliminator shotgun and ammo:

Just don't touch the document until it's asked for after going to Pripyat:

Have you picked up the Vintorez from the burnt farm yet?

Usually the first thing I do after first reaching Skadovsk. That, and snagging Barge's armor.
