Hello folks!

So recently I've noticed that I've missed some things that I could've added to the previous version STARTER PACK(Autumn Aurora 2.1 shaders) and someone also ported the HD models from Call of Chernobyl to Shadow of Chernobyl(job well done!) which would make a fine addition to this collection. So I worked on merging the things previously mentioned to a quite satisfactory result(IMO) which certainly spiced up the looks of the game.

What has changed from previous version? Well, some minor fixes here and there, added shader effects and HD models, which all do make enough of a difference to warrant a new release.

Same as previous releases, this mod is made to be Vanilla+ experience. Same core gameplay elements with better graphics, squashed bugs and slight creature comforts here and there(added sleeping bag and NPCs that can fix your weapons). Mod will come pre-configured by me as before although you still can configure it yourself throught the ZRP modifier file. It is not needed as I have configured it to be as close to Vanilla as possible. Yet again, same as before the mod will come with easy copy-paste installation for those new to STALKER modding.

When's it coming out? 12.06.2019. Testing has been done and no gamebreaking bugs have surfaced, so all that's left to do is just compress it and upload it for you guys. That's it. I didn't want to announce anything before it was ready for immediate release.

This time around I had some help from community. Help in finding bugs and help in fixing them too, so big thanks to AndiWandi, AnnaManiac, MrFunbaggs and TheRavenwhite.

So stay tuned and I hope you like the modpack since a lot more effort was put into it then the last iteration and as always... good hunting, stalker!


NB! I do not take any credit for the assets used in this modpack. They were created by other modders who have done a great job. All I did was merge all the mods and test to see if there are no issues.

Why isn't the world model for the AKS74u changed? It still retains the default one.

Nevermind fixed it, but its really odd that I had to rename "wpn_ak74u.ogf" (the worldmodel file) into "ak74u.ogf", which is the name for the game's default ak world view model, despite the fact the aks74u's config file lists the worldmodel as wpn_ak74u.ogf so why it is using the old vanilla model is strange. Not sure if this issue applies to using OWR3 as standalone however.

Just curious. I have the Stalker Starter Pack Repacked 2017 version. Do I necessarily need this version if I don't care much for the HD Models upgrade? Seems to me everything else about the 2019 version isn't really different from the 2017 version. At least, not enough to warrant starting a new game when I've made so much progress. Also, would I need to start a new game if I just wanted to replace the current NCPs with the HD models addon?

I'm so ready for the Dec 6th update. Will we have to start a new game or should it be compatible with pure vanilla saves?

Thank you for creating this Starter Pack. This is probably much better than the famous Stalker Complete 2009 which was my first experience with the Stalker. With your Starter Pack I want to play it again to see the improvements.

I had a really annoying issue where the game would crash with a BREAKPOINT caused by xrCore.dll. Managed to fix this by deleting xrCore.dll and then verifying the game on GOG. Just in case anyone else was having the same issue...
