1-) Download STARTER PACK 2019 fixed re-upload from

2-) Unpack the "SPv2019_Final.rar" file.

3-) Copy the contents of this folder to game install folder

4-) (OPTIONAL) Run fov_switch.cmd to configure Field of View in game. I prefer 75 for which you have to type in 17 but there are other available, just scroll up and see commands for SHOC 1.0006 in the opened command line window

5-) Run the game and configure controls and sound settings to your liking. It is not recommended to change the gamma/contrast/brightness values since those are set up for the new graphical mods but if you will you probably won't break anything. Mod comes configured to be on Master difficulty and no crosshair which is the true sdalger way but if you so wish you can change that(NOTE: Game must run at Full Dynamic Lighting for shaders to work)

6-) Start new game(Saves from previous STARTER PACK should work but you have to move them to app_data folder since this version keeps the saved games and user settings in the game install folder)

7-) Enjoy the mod.

NOTE: Game version has to be S.T.A.L.K.E.R. Shadow of Chernobyl v1.0006 !!!




STARTER PACK is beginner friendly Vanilla+ modpack that aims to improve graphics, squash bugs and add some QOL improvements.

The core of the gameplay stays the same. There are no changes to players health, stamina, carry weight or speed, all is vanilla.

No changes to the loot drop rates or weapon damage or accuracy values.

No changes to spawn rate.

The only added things are sleeping bag, some slight UI improvements and ability for some NPCs to fix your weapons.
