[b]S.T.A.L.K.E.R Backstory[/b] [b]Real Life Chernobyl:[/b] 25th of April 1986 an experiment took place in the 4th block of the Chernobyl power plant. A team of engineers and scientists wished to verify that the turbines could produce enough power in the case of a total failure of electricity, thus ensuring that the emergency cooling would function correctly. To allow the experiment to take place under realistic conditions, the emergency program "Average Protection" was turned off. In so doing, all the important security functions such as the emergency cooling and the emergency retraction of the brake rods, were taken offline. However, the launch of the experiment was postponed, and the unprepared night shift undertook the experiment, failing to understand that the test environment that took place earlier in the day had left the reactor unprotected. Because of the poor condition in the Chernobyl nuclear plant, heat was unable to be controlled, and it caused the nuclear power plant to become extremely unstable. The fuel rods, which were under massive pressure and heat under normal circumstances, In the active zone a chemical reaction took place between the many elements in the Reactor. A huge explosion rocked the area for miles, sending radiation for miles, into towns and houses. S.T.A.L.K.E.R.S.' Chernobyl: The beginning of S.T.A.L.K.E.R. is similar to what happened in real life, but a sharp turn is taken when a second explosion rocks the Zone, adding to the radiation. The second explosion, the cause was unknown at the time, damaged an area much larger than the original explosion, and created a bubble of radiation around Chernobyl. While this seemed bleak, the Ukrainian government saw a bright side to the incident when they sent in retrieval and survey teams to explore the area around the Nuclear Power Plant (NPP) they found wonderful objects that glowed colors, shone brightly and had many different properties. These objects were called artefacts by the Ecologists visiting the Zone. The money value of these artefacts was realized quickly, and many outlaws, mercenaries and bounty hunters a from all over the Zone came to make a quick small fortune off of the artefacts, which were created in pools and blobs of radioactive areas. In our roleplay you play as one of these people, a S.T.A.L.K.E.R. , who wants to make money, finish some unfinished business or whatever you see fitt for your character. [b]The Server[/b] Our Script: We are currently using a script aptly named Radiationscript, it is a variant of another popular roleplay script that has been heavily modified for use in S.T.A.L.K.E.R Roleplay. It has the necessities of roleplays, all your yelling, whispering, object discriptions, and actions your roleplaying brain can handle. The script is made for serious roleplay, and it has features such as - Bleeding after a player has had much damage done to him - Recoil on the weapons - Corpses that drop weapons and items at random - Factions for players to join ( Via forum sign up ) - Factional pay checks on a timer - Mutant factions, for respected players and donators! - An admin system - A fully working inventory - Many different weapons from Stalker, all using the models from the game. Our Content: At S.T.A.L.K.E.R Roleplay we use custom models, ported from the game S.T.A.L.K.E.R. as well as skins from the game, like the Freedom and Duty suits, and Exoskeletons. Weapons are also custom models, and we have custom sound for each. - Custom player models - Custom props - Custom map, currently 4 sectors wide, and based on S.T.A.L.K.E.R. - Sounds from S.T.A.L.K.E.R, including blow-outs, Mutants and gun sounds. - Custom foliage to add realism [b]The S.T.A.L.K.E.R Roleplay Experience:[/b] Ever feel like roleplay isn't close enough to the real thing? Here at HGN we offer you the best experience in S.T.A.L.K.E.R roleplay. As soon as you enter, you will see players moving about, people resting and talking, and traders doing their business. You might even witness a gunfight between Duty and Freedom, just make sure not to get caught in the crossfire! There are regular flights by military helicopters, scouting the area, missions custom made by players, and mutants roving for lonely S.T.A.L.K.E.Rs who think they can brave The Zone alone. You can do what you want, you can relax with other loners, do missions, and even go mutant hunting if you're brave and stupid enough. If you have been in The Zone for long enough ( 2 Weeks for most groups ) you can join a faction or a group, and receive pay, and weapons. You prove your worth and reliance to your faction by doing missions, braving dangers and making friends. S.T.A.L.K.E.R isn't just about shooting, it's about manipulating as well. You can become the mastermind behind an organization that controls power in many places, yet never fire a shot. You can also just relax with your friends, and maybe smoke some weed with Freedom. The S.T.A.L.K.E.R roleplay experience is hard to sum up in words, because it is a visual one. To show you what S.T.A.L.K.E.R is like, I present you with pictures.

  • This looks very cool. But if I recall correctly, Ive played on a HGN stalker server before (Or was it another stalker RP?) and my first impressions were not too nice, I were strolling some woods harming no one, some military guys came, hit me a few times, interrogated, then noticed someone building a camp, knifed me in the spine and went off :P I prefer RPs where there is a instant, easy possibility to get into a faction and start the serious RP. Too bad MWRP seems to be currently having problems with their script and structure and their server is not up.

  • You know, to be honest, HGN, it is a nice gamemode, and you did do a good job on the atmosphere. I can see you put alot of effort into it, but I've been playing recently, and the only experience I've gotten is being Dm'd by Duty Recruits/Stalkers for the items that fall out of my inventory when I die. Another thing, you guys really do need to turn off your Mics. It's ridiculous, today I logged on and heard a argument between a Aggressive 16 year old and some 12(?) year old kid because the kid told him to shut his yap. Luckily, there is mute button, but I shouldn't have had to do that in a serious RP server. Half the players within the server couldn't use proper capitalization and/or grammar. tl;dr The script and environment are pretty good, but the players need improvement on their RP skills.

  • The script needs a big overhaul, especially the microphone thing you mentioned. I wasn't aware we could even use microphones, before a few days ago, the server was always at around 13-16 players at it's peak, no one used their microphone. I'm sure Silverknight will look into it. Anyway, a map update is coming, slowly but surely. Silverknight's harddrives failed apparently, causing him to lose the .vmf, luckily I have a copy of it. Don't brace yourselves for the map update, it'll be a while. But it is coming.
