New S.T.A.L.K.E.R.: Clear Sky MP Map

A new multiplayer map is now available for S.T.A.L.K.E.R.: Clear Sky, optimized for four-on-four competition, though it will support up to 32 players. The map is a 5MB download, available on this page. Thanks The Patches Scrolls.

I like it and have largely enjoyed my time with it, but I enjoyed the first game a lot so I am predisposed. I've been relatively lucky concerning bugs so far(I didn't start until the .04 patch was released though), but I have had two BSOD (which I haven't otherwise had in five years, so that's a pretty neat trick right there, particularly in Vista), and I had to revert to a savegame from 20 minutes previous once because a script failed to trigger.

Given that I've probably put 20+ hours in, this isn't bad enough to discourage me, but surely it should never have been released like this. It's funny, before it was released I figured that the biggest benefit to the updated engine would be more stability seeing as how that was SoC's biggest failing. If anything Clear Sky is considerably worse. The new graphics features (particularly the god-rays) are incredibly beautiful, but I would trade them all in for rock-solid stability.

Nevertheless, I'm glad I bought it, but I wouldn't recommend anyone else buy it who isn't a big fan of the series if and until they sort out the stability issues. I hope they're a little more on top of single-player patches than they were with SoC. Most of the patches for SoC were concerned almost entirely with MP, which so far as I can tell, nobody played. Co-op would be pretty slick though, but I can only imagine what a scripting nightmare that would be.

Oh, and yeah, the Far Cry 2 Engine seems right up Stalker's alley, probably no chance of that though, which is a shame. Let's hope that one isn't so big a mess.
