X-46 Advanced Battlearmor Suit 1.01

Ingame Description:
This exoskeletal suit is a new protoype modification of the original battlesuits designed for extra-planetary combat by Rexler Industries for the United States Air Force. The battlesuit is built from new a newly discovered hyper-dense, but ultra light weight metal known as Quantimantium, a quantum-density alloy created in artifical "black holes". Additional onboard systems include built in night/low-light visual enhancement, radiation absorbing surface, internal inertial dampeners for kinetic/shock/concusive reduction, dual redundant power systems, and enhanced artifical musculature for large weight loads of up to 200kg weight. This advanced battlesuit is the epitomy of military defence hardware and should be undamageable by anything short of a direct hit by a 1 kiloton tactical nuclear warhead and could possibly even keep the wearer alive through that (though the suits functionality after such an event is not garunteed).

Real Description:
I used the excellent tutorial by Niphty on the filefront forums to make this suit and wasn't going to post it until I realized that alot of people were having such difficulty with Stalker even on easy mode that maybe this could help out in reducing frustration with the game, it certainly has made me enjoy the game a bit more. I've included some new screenshots to show the armor holding different weapons. For those who have been asking, this is the same model as the existing Exoskeleton suit, just spec modified to be more functional. This does not replace that suit but instead coexists with both the normal and unique exoskeleton suits in the game and both will still be available and unaffected by this mod.

Install:
Simply extract to the Stalker main directory, everything should copy to the correct folders on it's own as with most other mods.

Uninstall:
Remove the added files from the Stalker/gamedata folder. These files are, trade_ecolog.ltx, trade_trader.ltx, unique_items.ltx (all found in the Stalker main directory /gamedata/config/misc) and string_table_outfit.xml (found in the stalker main directory /gamedata/config/text/eng).

Usage:
This suit can be purchased at any trader for 25 rubles, a slight increase from the original version. The suit itself is very inexpensive so that it can be purchased easily. You'll only need one, it heals it's own damage before you even see it happen on the armor's health bar.

Suit Characteristics:
1. Heavy flame protection
2. Heavy bullet protection
3. Heavy chemical burn protection
4. Heavy anti-bleeding protection
5. Heavy anti-electrical shock protection
6. Complete mutant claw/fang attack protection
7. Complete radiation protection (can now escape from the radiation dirt devils if you move quickly enough)
8. approx. 200kg load weight and full sprint up to that weight (over weight stops you immediately)
9. Blue tinted night vision

Bugs:
I've adjusted the weight ratio to bring it down as close to 200kg as possible, it may allow up to 10kg over, not sure. All traders now should have the suit for sale, but I've only tested and confirmed that the initial trader, the Barman, and the scientist all indeed DO have it now for sale. If any other bugs are found, please let me know.

Redistribute:
Feel free to use, abuse, and tear this file up however you like. Copy it, chew on it, spit it in the fire, I'm cool. No restrictions on usage as far as I'm concerned, you download it, it's yours. If you decide to use it in one of your own mods for posting, I wouldn't mind a mention, but also full credit goes to Niphty for the original tutorial and to Balnazzar for his excellent trader mod that gave me the knowledge how to mod the traders correctly.

Please enjoy,
Moshpit
