I regret to inform of the passing of sjohnson on 27 Jan 2019

He'll be remembered on the forum for the enormous amount of help he gave to newcomers to the game

A retired technical writer, Steve was quick (as always) to offer his services when approached by the Dialogue Team. His last contribution was rewriting the first six of 33 entries in the 'kontroller_diaries' file

This has always been the most difficult of the 155 StalkerSoup text files originally inherited from Narodnaya Solyanka and, to my knowledge, no team of translators and editors has ever succeeded in getting them into decent English

After creating two drafts of each, he stopped short of creating a third because, in his own words, "...the mindset of the Ukrainian authors crafting these entries is too painful for me to adopt..."

And another time, "In Gollum's words, 'It burns! It burns!' Are the original language diaries available? I have more than one Russian or Russian-speaking friend who may be able to help untangle the original dialect, instead of trying to make sense of this unholy mess. Else, I will keep trying but it will take a while to make some sense out of the block, whether I follow the original or create anew..."

He kept on trying, and without his input we would not be as far with this project as we are now...

The sad news was sent to me by his son Andrew, who added that his father "... always talked about how he was helping with StalkerSoup, a game in which he had a lot of passion improving"

Steve, I offer you the ultimate eulogy from a brother in the Zone...

'You were a good Stalker...'

I never met Steve but know that I would have respected and admired in doing so and am greatly saddened by his passing. I am honored that he felt the way he did about SS and that he felt it so important to contribute. Let's drink to him and wish him well on his journey and SS will certainly place a memorium (not a real word but fits here) on our credits page to all the work and compassion he contributed to STALKERSOUP!!!!

WE ALL WILL MISS YOU!

Very sorry to hear this sad news. Steve was a very helpful member of our community, both in offering advice and support to other members and in helping out the Stalkersoup team behind the scenes. He will be missed.

See you in the Zone, Stalker.

I didn't know him (i'm quite newbie here) but these kind of altruistic people like him that gives his spare time to help to develop a game for free for all of us deserves our greatest recognition and gratitude.
So my condolences for his family and friends and a huge Thank you for his efforts and works.

It's a shame that people like me wouldn't realize of this background work in the game community until somebody dies.

Let's drink to him once more. He was a good stalker.

I'm not very good at this, but... my condolences for his family, Stalkersoup is a extraordinary mod, extremely big, and easy to get lost in his caves, it's a honor that he part of his time to help Tecnobacon... he will be remembered!!

R.I.P. sjohnson.

I'm a bit late to this eulogy, but this thread has been haunting me for awhile. Steve and I became email "friends" last year, and we exchanged numerous emails over the year. I grew up in Minnesota, right next to South Dakota where Steve resided. I have family in So. Dakota, and we both knew a lot about the area.

Steve impressed me as an intelligent, competent person, perfect for dialogue improvement. His diligence, and willingness to dig deep into a subject was one of his many good qualities manifested in his work. His passing is a loss to Stalkersoup, and we will all miss him greatly.

Tonight, "I will drink to him once more. He was a good, no a great Stalker".
