S.T.A.L.K.E.R. - Call of Pripyat

 

Requirements:
*
STALKER - Call of Pripyat, updated to version 1.6.02 or newer. (The Steam version comes already updated)
* Before installation of the Mod, The game needs to be started at least once.
* After installation, start a new game. Old save-games will not work.

 

Installation:

1: Absolute Structures Texture Pack 1.0 (LINK)
Download, unpack and install.

2: New fsGame file (LINK)
Download and unpack to the game folder. Overwrite the file.

3: Complete Mod 1.0.2 (LINK)
Download and install.
*If for some reason the installer can't find the game installation folder, just download the package instead (LINK) - Follow instruction on the site.

Installation Options:
I highly recommend selecting "Installation for Advanced Systems".
When asked about AtmosFear's NPC Emission Exposure Consequence, select "Killed At Emission's End" if you don't want to change the original game.

4: (Optional) Change FOV to 85 or 90
Download file for game version 1.6.02 - FOV 85 (LINK)
Download file for game version 1.6.02 - FOV 90 (LINK)
*Unpack to the "bin" folder inside the game folder and overwrite.
These are all taken from "FOV SWITCHER 1.7". If you want more FOV options, download the original mod here (LINK)

5: Stalker Two-K (LINK)

Download and unpack into a temporary folder.
A: Open the "FX-Pack_Addon" folder, and move the content of all following folders into the game-folder:
AmbientSounds
AnomaliesEffects
BetterFlashlight *Open the folder, choose either version and move the content. I recommend "Long Range(50 meters)"
LightsEffects
NewRain
Nightvisons *Open the folder, choose either version and move the content. I recommend "Animated Green"
B:
Open the "Grass_Pack_Addon" folder, and move the content of "Grass_CoP_4k" into the game-folder.
*Note: Don't copy/move "Stalker Two-K". These textures are very large 4k textures, but the quality looks like stretched 2k textures, They will take up 4 times the video memory, but they won't provide any visual difference, compared to the 2x textures below.

6: Stalket Two-K Tiny (LINK)

Download and unpack into the game-folder.
*Optimized version of the above textures. They use significantly less memory, and provide the same visual quality.

7: (Optional) Weight Mod (DOWNLOAD)
Download and unpack into the game-folder. Overwrite.
*This will change how much weight you can carry from 60kg to 6000kg.

8: SEP-COP-ReShade (DOWNLOAD)
Download and unpack to the game folder.

*Note for Windows 10 "Creators update" users:
The Windows 10 Creators update introduced a wide variety of problems for games, especially when using custom renders like ENB or ReShade. Fortunately this can be fixed in two simple steps (LINK)
*See number 4: Fixing the Creators "update"
If this doesn't work on your OS, try downloading the ReShade core files from here (LINK)
After installation, delete everything but the dll file, then copy everything but the dll file from SEP-COP-ReShade, so you get the right settings, but keep the dll from the official ReShade installation.
If this doesn't work either, then there is still something in the Windows 10 Creators Update that blocks the custom dll. If you are unable to fix it, you will have to uninstall the ReShade and play without.

9: Start S.T.A.L.K.E.R. - Call of Pripyat
Before starting a new game, make sure all settings are at maximum.
*I strongly recommend turning motion blur off.
Then start a NEW game, NOT an old save-game.
