I watched 5 minutes of a speed run through S.T.A.L.K.E.R. Shadow of Chernobyl. The player got to an area it took me a few hours to get to. Then I decided that I didn’t want to ruin the game and switched it off.
Not quick enough. Around 4:04 into the video the player jumps over a fence that shouldn’t really be scaled. It was soon after that I stopped watched but out of curiosity I tried it too and ended up on a flat plain until I got to the edge of the world ..
Panoramic Mod? It might be part of the Complete mod I’m using in the game. I had to double back and watched as buildings popped in and out of existence. Obviously I was on the wrong side of them! I somehow walked through a wall and got back to where I was supposed to go. Phew.
