More details

This repository contains OpenXRay Engine sources based on the X-Ray Engine version 1.6.02. The original engine is used in S.T.A.L.K.E.R.: Call of Pripyat game released by GSC Game World.

It is a place to share ideas on what to implement, gather people that want to work on the engine, and work on the source code.

If you find a bug or have an enhancement request, file an Issue.

Pull requests appreciated! However, the following things should be taken into consideration:

  • We want to keep the game as close as possible to the vanilla game, so instead of introducing new gameplay features, consider adding non-gameplay features, fixing bugs, improving performance and code quality
  • Major changes should be discussed before implementation
  • Follow the procedures

Be advised that this is a community project not sanctioned by GSC Game World in any way – and they remain the copyright holders of all the original source code and S.T.A.L.K.E.R. franchise.
