PostSubject: Where to start   Fri 14 Jul 2017 - 16:11

Is there any way playing SS as collector should start, in any particular order
like treasure hunt/zep/goldbars, or should may be play the base game to a
certain point and switch to the collector, or maybe they have been constructed
to run on there own, I have read that the base game gets to dead city and then
switches to the collector, await with interest.

I have never tried starting in Collector, as there is so much to enjoy in the main story. However, it is a very big game and it takes quite a while to reach the point where Collector starts.

To start in Collector, you need to change a line in tb3d_modders.script. After installation this file may be on your desktop, otherwise it is in stalkersoup\gamedata\scripts.

Near the top you will see:

Quote :
default_portal_spawn = true -- (true)

--// true = raincoat, then medkit, knife, gun and ammo
--// false = The Collector start or user customized in TB3D_Triggers.script

I assume that changing this to false will start you in collector and with a reasonable loadout. If you want to customize TB3D_Triggers.script you will probably need to unpack it from its gamedata.db? file.

Please note TecnoBacon's comments on his website (http://www.tecnobacon.com):

Quote :
Collector level-up (level 1) happens at the end of Dead City, Collector Treasure Hunt is a side quest to the Collector story line.

The entire NS (STALKER level 0) is separated from the Collector level within the code now for a great optimization in Collector free play.

...

There are some known issues I need to warn you about:

I am only started on the existing and new character dialogs in the Collector so there will be many cases where characters will still have dialog from NS. You may also get items in your inventory on level spawns as rewards to completed NS quests.

Once in Collector I don't think it matters what order you play the different quest lines. I usually play them in the order that you suggest, but others here may be able to give you more advice on this.

Well thanks for that, I played stalker through when it was in the 9 series early on, well nearly any way,
when I noticed the 'collector' option I thought to give it a try, but found a few bugs that were cleared
by reloading the game and updating with the patches, because my machine is getting elderly it kept
throwing tantrums, any way I reinstalled the game through mega and tried the collector avenue,
it was supposed to start with a blowout to create the bridge army but did not till I forced a blowout
by sleeping, but to go back, when I did the 'dead city' episode  there was not to my notice any link
to the collector, poss missed it , I will try your quote reference to go for false and see what happens,
to go about unpacking db files is way out of my pay grade, but thanks any way..

Back again, I started the collector side again and notice some thing sid said about seeing me again,
which appears to say that some were down the road I bump into searching out the collectors course ,
were others have said completing dead city and to look down the collector side of things, but that's
quite a ways down the road if I remember rightly, none of the walkthroughs/guides or Grimwalds
videos point to the existence this change of direction, so if any one is in or near dead city look see
if there is a collector portal or what ever, please.. nk
