==Strider's location==

'''Monolith survivors''' is a side mission in ''[[S.T.A.L.K.E.R.: Call of Pripyat]]''.
You can find [[Strider]] just north of the container warehouses and near the bridge going to the AA complex in [[Yanov]]. They are off the road and can be found easily on radar.
 
   
==Choices==
+
==Description==
You can recruit Strider and his squad into either [[Freedom]] or [[Duty]] by talking to [[Loki]] and [[Shulga]] respectively. However one will need to earn the trust of one of the leaders for them to send recruiters.
+
[[Strider]] and his group can be found north to the Containers Warehouse, by the bridge. The area is occupied by a group of strangely neutral [[Monolith]] fighters. Their leader, Strider, calls the player over once they approach. Strider tells the player about how they attempted to reach the [[Wish Granter]] in the [[Chernobyl Nuclear Power Plant]] with his group before ending up in [[Yanov]] without knowing how. Strider asks the player to speak to stalkers to see if a faction would accept to recruit them and have them in shelter.
   
One only needs to have a friendly reputation with one of the factions to earn the leaders trust, which is essentially one side mission that allows the player to choose which faction to side with. To earn a leader's trust while attempting to obtain the [[A Man of Balance]] achievement, 2 of these 3 quests must be completed favoring them: Turning in [[Flint]] to them, assisting [[Yar]] at [[Kopachi]] (Freedom), or getting them to dispatch a squad to guard the scientist's bunker.
+
The mission then points the player towards Yanov Station. The player is able to speak to [[Duty]] leader [[Shulga]] or [[Freedom]] leader [[Loki]] in order to recruit Strider and his friends. However, they will refuse in case the player hasn't completed enough missions for them, in which case they will say they don't trust them.
   
Alternatively if you have the [[Diplomat]] achievement then you can earn either leader’s trust just by turning in Flint to them, and reviving a few injured stalkers in the field. The best strategy here is to find a fire fight between Duty and Freedom members, run between them reviving anyone who falls down, then return to the station, save and try turning in Flint to both leaders. You can still help [[Yar]] if your reputation need more of a boost.
+
In order to have a faction recruit Strider, the player must achieve 'friendly' status with that faction. Two of the three following missions must be completed in Duty's or Freedom's favor in order for their leader to accept to recruit them:
  +
*[[Duty History]]
  +
*[[In Search of Magpie]]
  +
*[[Duty warehouse]]
   
It should be noted that there is a bug that results in Monolith Survivors opening fire upon the recruiters. It is not known what causes this.
+
Once either faction's attitude towards player has been raised high enough, their leader will agree to send recruiting officers. Because two of these missions must be completed in order to complete Monolith survivors, it is impossible for the player to obtain the [[A Man of Balance]] achievement should they choose to recruit Strider, unless the [[Diplomat]] achievement is unlocked as it gives a reputation boost for Duty and Freedom, Magpie must be turned in to any of the two factions at Yanov and the two PDAs must be given to Owl. This will allow you to unlock the Man of Balance achievement and, at the same time, recruit Strider for the squad.
   
UPDATE: to correct the above behavior edit resources/configs.db. Search for relations until you find a text chart that describes the relations between each faction, find the value for Monolith and Freedom (usually -5000 for the bug to occur) change the value to 0. (Taken from [http://www.gamefaqs.com/boards/959904-stalker-call-of-pripyat/57657561 this post]). To edit .db file do not use Notepad or Word, but some SQL DB editor, like SQL Lite.
+
The following scene then depends of the chosen faction: if the player has worked for Duty, they will be asked to get into rows and take the Duty oath, whereas if the player has worked for Freedom, they will just be debriefed about Freedom's ways and ideals. Either way, the mission ends as the screen fades to black and all Monolith members get their new uniform. The player can then offer to accompany Strider to the Yanov station.
   
====Side missions possible====

==Reward==
*[[General Tachenko's PDA]] given to either [[Shulga]] or [[Loki]]

There is no reward for this mission, although it is required in order to be able to recruit Strider for the [[Jupiter Underground]]. As well, it is one of the four missions to complete to get the [[A Friend of Duty]] or [[A Friend of Freedom]] achievement.

*Tell about [[Flint]]'s true identity to either [[Shulga]] or [[Loki]]

*Refer either [[Freedom]] or [[Duty]] to guard the scientist's bunker after [[Black]]'s squad leaves to ambush the player in the Jupiter factory complex.
+
There is a known glitch that causes the Monolith survivors to open fire on the recruiting officers, thus failing the mission. What causes this glitch is unknown, although it might be Strider's group getting attacked by either nearby [[Bandits]] or mutants, which causes them to 'break' their neutrality script with all factions.
*Assist [[Yar]] at [[Kopachi]] (Freedom)
+
Other actions
+
In order to fix this glitch, the player can do a simple script modification in the game_relations.ltx file (file path: gamedata\configs\creatures\). The game_relations file has a table that represents the relation between each faction. The player must find the relation set between the Monolith faction towards the recruiting faction (in the "monolith" row, and the "dolg" or "freedom" column), and change the value -5000 to 5000, causing the Monolith to consider Duty/Freedom as a friendly faction, thus not firing at them when they encounter. The player doesn't need to roll back this change, as Duty/Freedom and Monolith squads never encounter outside of modded installations.
*[[Diplomat]] achievement (Raises players reputation with all factions)

Monolith survivors is a side mission in S.T.A.L.K.E.R.: Call of Pripyat.

DescriptionEdit

Strider and his group can be found north to the Containers Warehouse, by the bridge. The area is occupied by a group of strangely neutral Monolith fighters. Their leader, Strider, calls the player over once they approach. Strider tells the player about how they attempted to reach the Wish Granter in the Chernobyl Nuclear Power Plant with his group before ending up in Yanov without knowing how. Strider asks the player to speak to stalkers to see if a faction would accept to recruit them and have them in shelter.

The mission then points the player towards Yanov Station. The player is able to speak to Duty leader Shulga or Freedom leader Loki in order to recruit Strider and his friends. However, they will refuse in case the player hasn't completed enough missions for them, in which case they will say they don't trust them.

In order to have a faction recruit Strider, the player must achieve 'friendly' status with that faction. Two of the three following missions must be completed in Duty's or Freedom's favor in order for their leader to accept to recruit them:

Once either faction's attitude towards player has been raised high enough, their leader will agree to send recruiting officers. Because two of these missions must be completed in order to complete Monolith survivors, it is impossible for the player to obtain the A Man of Balance achievement should they choose to recruit Strider, unless the Diplomat achievement is unlocked as it gives a reputation boost for Duty and Freedom, Magpie must be turned in to any of the two factions at Yanov and the two PDAs must be given to Owl. This will allow you to unlock the Man of Balance achievement and, at the same time, recruit Strider for the squad.

The following scene then depends of the chosen faction: if the player has worked for Duty, they will be asked to get into rows and take the Duty oath, whereas if the player has worked for Freedom, they will just be debriefed about Freedom's ways and ideals. Either way, the mission ends as the screen fades to black and all Monolith members get their new uniform. The player can then offer to accompany Strider to the Yanov station.

RewardEdit

There is no reward for this mission, although it is required in order to be able to recruit Strider for the Jupiter Underground. As well, it is one of the four missions to complete to get the A Friend of Duty or A Friend of Freedom achievement.

GlitchEdit

There is a known glitch that causes the Monolith survivors to open fire on the recruiting officers, thus failing the mission. What causes this glitch is unknown, although it might be Strider's group getting attacked by either nearby Bandits or mutants, which causes them to 'break' their neutrality script with all factions.

In order to fix this glitch, the player can do a simple script modification in the game_relations.ltx file (file path: gamedata\configs\creatures\). The game_relations file has a table that represents the relation between each faction. The player must find the relation set between the Monolith faction towards the recruiting faction (in the "monolith" row, and the "dolg" or "freedom" column), and change the value -5000 to 5000, causing the Monolith to consider Duty/Freedom as a friendly faction, thus not firing at them when they encounter. The player doesn't need to roll back this change, as Duty/Freedom and Monolith squads never encounter outside of modded installations.
