game design: side quests

I cannot even imagine playing this game without internet. I want to play game on my own, not being dependent of what google finds. For example hud icons are all different in each stalker game. Next to the side quests: for example i found transmission of some stranded team inside a anomaly and it looked interesting and i would like to do this quest, but how i am supposed to know what to do. It requires complete 1-2 missions for a scientists. How am i even supposed to know that, there are tons of sidequests and npc, maybe you will eventually find quest which is about this mission, but i wanted to do this now. This is not even worse. Also mission says i need to improved detector, but where the heck i get thouse. I tried to buy it, but they don't sell it. And i have no idea where to find it. So it turns out you need to go back to start and complete couple missions for bandit boss owl. But it is so far away and at the starting location, what the hell i am supposed to do, run across whole map and do all sidequest. Thats boring, some side quests are fun some not, everyone likes some and some not, so that's okay, but it wouldn't be fun to for me to run across whole map and do every side quest in the game, until i finally find what i need. Why there is some way to infer it. I don't mean like pointer on the map, that would be boring if everything would be straight up. But there should be some way for a player to found a way, which doesn't include running across couple miles squared and question all npcs and doing all side quests. It is annoying to have to google all time some details to be able to play.

The voices of the trapped stalkers you heard is not a quest.

How did you get to Yanov Station? You must have used 'Pilot', the guide. He can take you back to Zaton, too.

The game has a storyline and you need to follow it, and keep an eye on the tasks in your PDA. Talking to other stalkers, traders and such will get you lots of information - some of it useful, some of it not so much.

Talk to the technicians and find the toolkits for them so you can repair and upgrade your armor and weapons.

There are stashes of stuff all over the place, but they can take some finding. There are items necessary to various quests that can be found - you just have to get out there and do what S.T.A.L.K.E.R.s do - poke about everywhere and see what you can find.

There was no metion about that. You have to randomly check npcs, there is no way for me to know if you bring owl 3 detectors he will give you one improved. Or when i have gauss rifle, you have to bring it to specific technician. Or oasis, which is random tunnel entrance and there is no clue how to find it in game... Without internet i would be perma stucked in this game. Maybe it is supposed to be hard, but it is especially annoying when you replaying game, it is just running simulator. I kinda remember when you had to find in soc strelok stash i forget to talk with someone in first zone and than i had to go 3 zones back, because i cant do every side mission. I like for example that room in pripyat which unlocks other endings, there are hidden elemements, which makes game more fun for funs to discover new things, when replaying game for example you can find something new. But i haven't internet at that time and i wouldn't know that there are another endings, which would stole me chance to play epic ending. Which is not good. I don't say there it should be easy, but there should be some way to infer it, which doesn't require to talking randomly to 20 npc. I read a lot of people stuck on various things, even more straightforward. This is just one of that games, that can be pain sometimes without internet. And it is boring to google everything.
