DimitriShumski has released a brand new version of his Lost Souls overhaul mod for the first STALKER game, S.T.A.L.K.E.R. Shadow of Chernobyl. Lost Souls Version 2.0 aims to improve the game visually and also make it slightly more hardcore. However, the mod also tries to keep the essential STALKER experience intact.
Going into more details, version 2.0 adds a new Main Menu Background and Options Tab. It also brings sharper HD Textures for Structures, Vehicles, Props and Decals, as well as sharper HD Textures for All Nature with an enhanced Autumn Feeling. Furthermore, players will find new skies and lightning, as well as slightly improved weather effects.
Furthermore, there are new Textures for all guns (OWR3 Mod), HD NPC Models, and sharper and more detailed textures for all mutants. A more powerful flashlight is also present, alongside light HUD with new visuals.
It’s also worth noting that there are new Custom Inventory Icons for all consumables and outfits, and a dynamic HUD (Dynamic Gasmask Overlay, Bleeding Textures).
Regarding its gameplay tweaks and improvements, Lost Souls Version 2.0 reduces Player Immunities, meaning that the player gets hurt much easier now. It also reduces Player Walking and Running Speed in order to offer a more realistic experience. The mod also reworks the loot and economy systems. It also slightly improves accuracy and damage.
