Helping my dad after russian missile attack destroyed his home.

At Jan 23, russian missile attack on Kharkiv left my dad without a home. He was at the night shift on his work during the attack, so he's in one piece himself, but the explosion destroyed his apt completely, together with most of others in the building.

We want to get him a new apt, away from the shelling danger zone. With the savings of our relatives and close friends who volunteered to help, we are able to scrap around $23k - but this is simply the limit of everyone of those around, who are somehow able to help. Sadly, it's not possible to buy a decently habitable apt here (so it would have at least basic repairs and furniture available) that is ready for a person to live in, for this money. The lowest plank of average price available for this is ~$35k, so we need $12k more.

I want to try to get the rest of the needed sum to give dad a place to live in now, rather than to have him living at least next 2 years in hostels (there are huge lines of people in line, who are still waiting for new apts from the govt, as it simply can't keep up with all the destruction russia brings to the near-frontline regions), considering his old age and chronic health issues.

I've made a fundraiser at my BuyMeACoffee page - there's a progress bar there, so you can also see how it goes, and contribute if you are willing and able to.
Thank you in advance - and let's try to make this happen, shall we? ❤️‍🩹

What's this all about?

Starfield is a new grand-scale game from Bethesda, which automatically means two things. Good thing: It's made by Bethesda so it will eventually have great modding support. Bad thing: It's made by Bethesda. Either way, only in the first week since the game was released, community released the first 1,000 mods - and this number will surely grow exponentially. This page has everything you need to know about the best mods available and about modding Starfield with those mods - not being afraid of neither "lite" nor "serious" modding and being able to improve the game as much as possible. By following the guide, you can have stable and fun modded game no matter whether you'll have 15 or 200 mods installed. Go through the guide without a rush, pick what you like - and enjoy your modded game.

I'm here to serve - the more people can have stable modded game, the happier I will be :)


Current guide version/changelog & future updates:


Update 0.65 for Starfield, at October 17, 2023. Massive update. What's inside:

- Around 130 new mods (marked with ==NEW==). Make sure to check "Essentials" section too as there are new mods there as well.

- New section, "Non-Essential Bugfixes" that lists various mods fixing small bugs or changing gameplay moments that are not technically bugs, but can feel annoying or irrational.

- New section, "Spaceship Mods" that lists (mostly) gameplay mods related to spaceships usage.

- Note: if you've updated the game lately, make sure to also update your SFSE and all SFSE-based mods (most notable - Baka Achievement Enabler, Classic Sprint, Sprint Suttering Fix and Enemy Friendly Fire) - most of them in general were already updated by their authors.


Initial alpha release, version 0.5 for Starfield, at September 2023.

Future updates:

- Regular weekly updates.

- Modules

- Corrections of links/typos if needed

- When the CK is released and Starfield will move to a new stage of modding, I'll roll out a major update.

- To report the issue (typos, broken link etc) or to make a suggestion - please drop a message in #suggestions_room in our Discord server.

How to support:

This project is completely free. Still, it takes insane amount of my time to build and expand it - the modding guides and other related modding content already took me over 7,500 working hours in total. I'm also living in Ukraine during the russian invasion, and have to support two families at once. The extra work I'm doing to support our defenders, air raids and PTSD caused by the war also make every inch of the work I do more difficult than before. The more independent and confident I will fee myself as an author - the less stress and more free time I'll have - and so, the faster new updates and videos will arrive, and new projects will appear as well. But support only if you really want it and able to:




Q: So I should install ALL mods from this list?

A: While you purely in theory can ofc - you should not do that by any means. This is a guide - it gives you an ability to compare and choose. Open mod pages, read the descriptions and my notes about the mods. Install what you like and don't install what you don't like :) Plus, some mods are changing same things, just in different way - so you can have multiple options to choose from to fit your personal taste the most (which is the benefit of the guide purpose in first turn).

Q: Why there are so few sections in the guide?

A: Starfield modding stage is in its infancy stage right now and so is the guide itself - consider it an alpha version that'll be changed heavily with time. There are not too many actually good mods as for now, so there's no need to create extra complexity and lots of sections with sometimes just couple mods inside. As soon as the modding stage will expand enough, the guide will be updated properly.

Q: What game version is needed for modding?

A: Steam version. While you can technically mod the Windows Store/Game Pass/Epic Games Store version with [some] mods, it's noticeably more troublesome to do so and the SFSE-based mods (read: many of the innovative gameplay mods) are not able to work on other versions than Steam one as those version don't support SFSE. Steam version is crucial for modding Starfield.

Q: What kind of monitor is the best for Starfield and what resolution should I play at?

A: In-depth yet easy to understand article here, give it a read.

Q: I have the game in language other than English, is it a problem?

A: Before modding the game, make sure to change game language back to English, both audio and subtitles. The guide is made for English version of the game. Some mods like simple texture replacers or basic tweaks will work fine no matter the language, but as for many seirous gameplay mods, there is no guarantee that they will work with non-English version of the game properly, or work at all with localized version. Many gameplay mods needs a proper localization to work in game version other than English, and while some mods have this as an additional feature, you shouldn't expect for this by default. Moreover, translations (hosted on separate pages made by community) are often outdated which leads to various bugs. If you want to be able to use Starfield modding stage and this guide on its fullest, use English version of the game. I won't be able to give any troubleshooting support for non-English versions.

Q: Can I continue my saved game after modding?

A: It's strongly recommended to start a new game. Trust me, with all the improvements, you'll want to experience the game refreshed look and gameplay fully, from the beginning.

Q: I also want to install Reshade preset, where's a tips for it?

A: Sure! Whatever you want to know about modding this game - it is here ;) Just read a bit further.

Q: I got infinite loading screens/My game freezes, crashes or doesn't launch/I have various other weird glitches/My mods don't seem to be working - while I have a modern rig which clearly should be able to handle the game.

A: Please read "Preparations" section carefully. As it name suggests, do NOT skip it - implement it fully. Read it and install all the things needed before starting to install mods themselves.

Q: I have some other questions related to modding. Help!

A: Feel free to join our Discord server and community members or I will try our best to help you :)

Q: Will you expand this guide and add this/that?

A: Sure - I will update and improve it. Unstoppably :)

Q: Guide just received massive update, but how can I see the little new additions?

A: I add mods and fix text errors few times per week. All the mods freshly added to the guide will be marked with red-colored ==NEW== sign.

Q: Wait, why the popular [mod_name] is not listed here?

A: One of the main goals of the guide always is to keep your game stable. If some popular/well-known mod is not in the guide - it's either actually pretty buggy, or is not updated for the latest game version. Nothing more besides that.

Q: Ok, now vice versa - I see bug reports on various mod pages which are listed in the guide. Why they are here then?

A: While Starfield modding stage is still in the phase of active development (and so are some mods as well), it often happens that bugs players report at some mod page have nothing to do with the mod itself, or they appear due to user-end mod list incompatibility problem, etc. It ofc also doesn't mean all bug reports are false - yet, I personally tested each mod which I've included in the guide, to make sure it works fine - and mods which are actually heavily bugged are not included. Don't worry!

Q: Game was just got an update but I'm alredy in the middle of walkthrough/have mods installed. What to do?

A: If that's not some major update that brings up new DLC or something on relatable scale that you absolutely can't live without, it's strongly recommended to not update hastily. In most of cases, SFSE-based mods can stop working properly, and some others as well. The best choice here is to hop in to our Discord server and ask there.

Q: Can you just upload your Starfield mods folder with all your mods somewhere so I can just download it and not to choose and install mods one by one?

A: Unfortunately, no. The reasons:
Firstly - such an action would be just disrespectful to mod authors, and I respect their work.
Secondly - everyone has absolutely different PC specs and different taste, and my setup can be absolutely unplayable for many people due to being too hard, for instance.
Lastly - even if you'll download some modpack from elsewhere without having at least a basic knowledge about modding (which you'll get while going through this guide) - should you wish to somehow adjust your mod list, you simply won't be able to do this properly and/or damage your save.
Trust me - when you're making your mod setup by yourself the result will be way better because most of mods are absolutely matter of taste.

Q: That's all cool and everything, but I wanna stay tuned on updates and have modding chatting, something you can offer?

A: Sure! Just join our Discord server - where you can chat with a community about modding Starfield, other iconic series like TW3/TES/FO and more.

Q: I'm a mod author - I've made a cool mod and it's still not in your guide!

A: Just join our Discord server and tell a few words about your mod - thank you :)

Q: I like dem pictures on this page, who is the author?

A: All the screenshots in both galleries are taken by myself using inbuilt badass Photo Mode. It's really useful in the game, and knowing the huge size of the game and many cool-looking places available to take those images at - try it for sure!

Q: Where are you from? A few words about you?

A: Ukraine. Gamer, One Piece & JJBA fan and gym addict living through the russian genocidal invasion. Web-developer in past, fitness trainer and nutritionist now (as hobby asides from content creation).



Now, the first and most important rule. Keeping it will drive right to the most distant galaxies with lots of mods and fully stable game.




1) Make sure your game is NOT installed in Program Files/Documents/any other system folder. Answering possible question - yes, Program Files (x86) is the same. Why so? Most of game clients suggest to istall there by default! True that, but unmodded and modded game are two different things. When game is modded, there are many additional files which didn't exist there in first turn, overlays like Reshade/ENB or script extenders/injectors, etc - and it's needed to be ensured that system has full access to all of them. Program Files is a system folder, and because of this modded games can be often messed up without you even knowing that - so to make sure it won't happen, install your game anywhere - just not in Program Files. If it's same drive that has your Windows installed on it - it's ok too, just once again, not...well, you got it :) With Steam, you may just want to create an another Steam directory out of Program Files, and install Starfield there.

2) Make sure no active overlays, AVs, firewalls and various "boosters" are running. Disable Steam overlay. Make sure your AV (anti virus) software is disabled or at least has Starfield, your mod manager of choice and SFSE (a bit below) added to the whitelist. Same goes for the firewall, if you have it - and this also applies to Windows Defender. Lastly, make sure that you don't have any kind of "boosting/tuner" software enabled - such as Afterburner/RivaTuner etc, and that your GPU software (like NVIDIA Geforce Experience or AMD analogue) doesn't have "optimisation" settings enabled for Starfield. Note: NVIDIA overlay is known to be fine so you can use it to track your PC performance when playing, if needed, as well as making screenshots and recording video pieces.

3) [Optionally yet highly, strongly and crucially recommended] - download and install Sublime Text. It's a simple yet powerful text editor - similar to Windows native Notepad, just many times better. It's very cozy and makes editing various configuration .INI files (which you'll need for some mods here and there). It's free and reliable, pleasant to the eye (unlike the hideous Notepad) and serves millions of people for many years.

4) Launch the game once before intalling mods themselves. Simply launch the game once (not needed to start the walkthrough, just run the game till the main menu is opened, and then exit) to make sure that base game .INI files are generated.

5) Use my StarfieldCustom.INI file or values from it. At this page header, click on the zip button and download the "StarfieldCustom INI file" as shown here. Unzip the archive. Now, go to "\Documents\My Games\Starfield". If there's no "StarfieldCustom" file there, just place my file here. If you already have this file, then make sure you have the same lines as from under [General] and [Archive] in my file and paste those if you don't have them.

6) Check your game after each few mods installed. Always make at least a basic check (launch the game - load a test save - fast travel somewhere/start a random combat/open character menus and inventory) from time to time in process of modding. This is needed to prevent situations like if something goes wrong (improper mod installation, weird conflict or even just corrupted mod files during download) but you having no idea what and when exactly because you last time checked your game way to long ago. So, simply check your game often enough to always keep the hand on pulse.

7) Develop this good habit when it comes to meeting a bug in modded Starfield ↓↓↓↓↓ When experiencing a game issue which you think is related to mods - don't rush to report it as bug to the first mod you think it's coming from. Replicate it a few times, try to remove mods few by few and see when exactly the issue goes away - it often happens that what you have thought of being a bug from a certain mod at first, may be not even related to it to begin with or be not a bug but a feature which you just personally don't like. Mod authors not always can help with every possible issue because they can't surely know about how exactly their mod will work together with all other possible mods on the stage. Tldr, often "bug" reports made without a proper check will only confuse other players and bring yet another report of the issue which has technically nothing to do with the mod itself. Always apply common sense, narrow down the culprit carefully and respect the time of people who make this game better <3

8) Disable Starfield autoupdates. Game updates are usually a good thing in general. Yet when it comes to the modded game, such update may or may not mess up your mods. If that's not some major update that brings up new DLC or something on relatable scale that you absolutely can't live without, it's strongly recommended to not update hastily. In most of cases, SFSE-based mods can stop working properly, and some others as well. The best choice here is to hop in to our Discord server and ask there.

9) Activating .txt and .esp mods Note: This is needed only for .txt file mods and for mods that have .esp plugins. Loose file mods (meshes, textures, sounds, animations) are just drop-and-forget.
As for now, once again, Starfield modding is still at the beginning of its path, so some modding aspects are not most comfortable - but if you want to mod the game now, you need to understand these details.
TXT mods: Require "activation" in form of a certain command line being added to your "StarfieldCustom.INI" file, like this: sStartingConsoleCommand=bat DifficultyTweaks, where the "sStartingConsoleCommand" basically means "apply the next console command when the save is loaded" and "bat DifficultyTweaks" (just an example, can be any other) means "apply the settings from the .txt file of the Difficulty Tweaks mod". Thing is, you can only have one such line in general, so, if you'll be using multiple mods of such kind (that's almost guaranteed), and want them all to work properly, you'll need to "merge" the commands.
Let's say, you have 3 mods for which commands are "bat DifficultyTweaks", "bat BigBadonkers" and "bat ToddSeducesMe". All you need to do is to write them all one after another, separated by the "; " (wihtout quotes), so the resulting line should look like this: "sStartingConsoleCommand=bat DifficultyTweaks; bat BigBadonkers; bat ToddSeducesMe".
Extra tip: the bat (whatever) command name is the same as the mod's .txt file name. So, if mod .txt file is named "OnePieceRocks.txt", then it's command for the StarfieldCustom will be "bat OnePieceRocks" (just without the file extension). That's it!
ESP/ESM mods (classic Bethesda plugins): These are mods with .esp extension plugins. After you'll place such plugin inside the "Data" folder, you need to add this line to your "plugins.txt" file: *ModName.esp (just an example, plugin name can be any, where you always should begin from "*" (without qoutes) and "ModName" is a name of the plugin). Repeat this for every mod with .esm or .esp plugin, every time in new line, without any extra spaces. All the .esp plugins must be loaded after .esm plugins, and the load order goes from top to bottom, meaning that .esm plugins should be above in the very beginning with .esp plugins being listed below them. If there are some mods that are conflicting in certain features and you need mod #5 to take over the mod's #4 changes, mod #5 should be - yes, you're correct - below the mod #4. In the end, it should look like this. The location of "plugins.txt" is explained a bit below.




>>> MAKE SURE YOU HAVE FOLLOWED THE "PREPARATIONS" SECTION - DO NOT SKIP IT <<<
I'm serious - make sure to follow it. These steps are crucial. Thanks :)

Q: How should I install Starfield mods?

A: As for now - manually. It's only [temporarily] till mod managers (MO2, for instance) will officially get Starfield support which is only a matter of time (MO2 update with Starfield support is already in development). Vortex supports modding Starfield on paper, but, unfortunately, it's still highly buggy, doesn't install some mods properly and can do more harm than good for your modding. Plus, there are not so many Starfield mods right now in general - you won't have any troubles with manual installation - and as soon as other mod managers will receive Starfield support, I'll udpate the guide right away :)

Q: Where to install the mods?

A: There are several directories:
- to Starfield Root folder (where Starfield.exe file is located).
- to Starfield Data folder.
- to SFSE plugins folder, which is in "\Data\SFSE\Plugins".
- to CCR folder (abbreviation from the Console Command Runner, a bit below), which is in "\Data\SFSE\Plugins\ConsoleCommandRunner".
The guide mentions to which one for the mods. Simply download the mod archive, unzip it, and place the file/s into the folder guide instructs you to. If there are some extra steps needed to configure the mod, the guide will mention that too.

Q: What about the installation order and overwriting between the mods that change the same files?

A: For gameplay mods, the installation order usually doesn't matter. For UI/graphics mods, if the mods change same files (until there's a compatibility patch provided by one of the mod's authors or the community), whatever mod overwrites other mod files, will take the effect. Until there's no dedicated extra instructions, you should install the mods in the order they are listed in the guide and approve ovewriting. If there's a patch needed/provided, and any other extra steps need to be made, the guide will mention that.
If there's no instruction provided in the guide and there will be an overwriting prompt when you'll be installing the mod, this means there's a conflict with some other mod installed previously, but not patch available, so overwriting will leave you with the "winning" mod feature only. For instance, one mod changes ship upgrade UI tabs to red color, and other one - upgrades it from 30 to 60 fps. If there's not patch provided, installing the latter one will give you 60 fps for this UI, but its color won't be changed to red. You got the idea :) When the mod managers will fully and properly support Starfield modding, it'll be super easy to see which exact mods are conflicting.

1) Install SFSE. If you allready have it - great. If no - install it. It's obligatory. SFSE is [essential]. Many stability and innovative gameplay mods are working through it. Consider it a basic invisible evolution element of Starfied.
Download the archive somewhere manually, unpack it. From the folder, get the .dll and .exe files, as showed here, and place them to your Starfied folder. (the root folder where Starfield.exe is, not the Data folder). From now on, launch your game only via SFSE (sfse_loader.exe), not the game regular launcher.
Now, go inside the game "Data" folder and create "SFSE" folder in it. Then, go inside this freshly created folder and create a "Plugins" folder in it (without quotes). This folder is used to install SFSE-based mods like shown here. Well done!
Note: if the "blank" SFSE shortcut icon bothers you, get this or this to set and icon for it (follow the instructions in the readme/mod page).

2) Install Address Library for SFSE Plugins. Starfield updates usually break SFSE-based mods. This plugin makes it easier for mod author to make such mods to work independently from the game version. But it's still needed to be installed for the player as well, so do so:
Place [all] the .bin files to Starfield SFSE plugins folder.

3) Install Baka Achievement Enabler. This one is needed for ingame achievements to work with the modded game, as by default, mods disable achievements.
Place the "BakaAchievementEnabler.dll" file to Starfield SFSE plugins folder.

4) Install Modfix. As for now, one should install Starfield mods that change vanilla assets (like meshes and textures) into the "Documents\My Games\Starfield\Data" folder instead of a game "\Data" folder, which is quite uncomfortable. This little tool creates a "link" between these 2 directories so you can intall mods to a "normal" (ingame) data folder as usually for other Bethesda games. Make sure to open the mod page's "Docs" tab and follow the instructions there. You only need to do it once, it's "do-and-forget" action.

5) Install Console Command Runner Updated ==NEW==. An SFSE plugin that automatically runs user defined console commands on startup. Needed for steadily growing number of mods below in the guide. Place the .dll file to your Starfield SFSE plugins folder. Now, go inside your SFSE plugins folder, create a new folder there, and name it "ConsoleCommandRunner" (without quotes) like shown here. Nice. This one is an updated version of the original mod compatible with the latest game version.

6) Install Plugins.txt Enabler. ==NEW== Needed for easy activation of mods with classic Bethesda plugins via "plugins.txt" file. Download the SFSE version. Place "SFPluginsTxtEnabler.dll" file to Starfield SFSE plugins folder. Now, go to Users\YourUserName\AppData\Local\Starfield and create a new text file there called "plugins.txt" (the name itself is "plugins" without quotes, with the .txt extension). Launch the game once and close it. If you will not see the AppData folder, enable the hidden files visibility in Windows settings. Now, to active the plugin/s:
After you'll place such plugin inside the "Data" folder, you need to add this line to your "plugins.txt" file: *ModName.esp (just an example, plugin name can be any, where you always should begin from "*" (without qoutes) and "ModName" is a name of the plugin). Repeat this for every mod with .esm or .esp plugin, every time in new line, without any extra spaces. All the .esp plugins must be loaded after .esm plugins, and the load order goes from top to bottom, meaning that .esm plugins should be above in the very beginning with .esp plugins being listed below them. If there are some mods that are conflicting in certain features and you need mod #5 to take over the mod's #4 changes, mod #5 should be - yes, you're correct - below the mod #4. In the end, it should look like this.

7) Use Starfield Performance Optimization. Game graphics settings tweaks for a decent FPS boost without a quality loss on Ultra graphics settings preset. Unzip the archive and place the file from it into your Starfield root folder, approving overwriting. Next time you'll launch the game, make sure to switch the settings preset back and forth to your one (for instance, set preset to Low and then back to Ultra, if using Ultra) to make sure changes are applied.
For other presets rather then Ultra, try this one - installation principle is the same.

8) [OPTIONALLY] Install Disk Cache Enabler. Use disk cache for IO for less disk activity and improve performance if Starfield is installed on HDD. If you're playing on SSD, there won't be much difference, most likely (or just a bit) - but for HDD, this one is is super effective. Download the SFSE plugin version and place the .dll file to Starfield SFSE plugins folder.

9) [OPTIONALLY] Install Starfield.exe Auto-Backup. Game updates break SFSE and mods based on it. This tool will automatically store your different versions of Starfield.exe files in backup folders. Now you will always have a backup of your executable in case you unintentionally updated your game via Steam, so you can use it instead of the updated Starfield.exe temporarily till SFSE and related mods will be updated.
Place the "auto_backup_executable.dll" file to Starfield SFSE plugins folder.

Now, install all the mods from a list below. They are plenty, but each is absolutely essential in different ways, be it bug fixing or must-have QOL improvements

60 FPS - Smooth UI Increases the UI files to 60 FPS, for a smoother and less jittery user interface and menus. Get the FULL version and place the "Interface" folder to Starfield Data folder. Showcase here. StarUI Inventory Inspired by SkyUI for Skyrim, this mod completely overhauls inventory interface to be more modern, comfortable and generally PC-like, as well as adding extra sorting and other features. Place the "Interface" folder to Starfield Data folder. You can configure the mod through "StarUI Inventory.ini" file inside "\Interface" folder. A brief ingame showcase of the mod available here. StarUI HUD A much larger, complex and configurable HUD overhaul from the author of the mod above, for multiple other HUD aspects, and with more features to be added with time. StarUI HUD gives you full control over most HUD widgets and provides an updated loot list and better item cards with DPS and V/W. Resize, move, recolour or disable most of the HUD widgets and more! Place the "Interface" (that's already a 60 FPS one) folder to Starfield Data folder. You can completely configure every mod feature in the .INI file, or just use one of the presets provided by the author (read about that at the mod page).
Optionally, after you've installed this mod, you can install retextures for some of the mod's icon which make them look somewhat more vanilla-like. Place "Interface" folder to Starfield data folder and approve overwriting. Mod showcase here. StarUI Workbench ==NEW== StarUI Workbench improves all workbenches with a more compact layout, more information, sortable columns, new data columns, custom layout, recolouring, dark mode, QOL features and more. Place the "Iterface" folder to Starfield data folder. Fully configurable in the .INI files that come with the mod files. StarUI Configurator ==NEW== Visualized configuration interface for all StarUI mods. Put the files from "Data" folder to Starfield data folder. Double click the "StarUI Configurator.hta" file and configure the mods to your liking. Enhanced Dialogue Interface There are LOTS of dialogues in Starfield, so let's make time spent in them more cozy. Enhance your dialogue experience with a wider, refined and centered text area, improved text clarity featuring a subtle shadow for better readability - all without annoying transition animations. Also, there are several visual appearance options, optional possibility to choose dialogue options with the keyboard keys and some configuration available. Place the "Interface" folder to Starfield Data folder. You can configure the mod through "Enhanced Dialogue Interface.ini" file inside "\Interface" folder. If you want to have the "Post War" or "Vanilla Like" visual apperance, download the preset file and replace the "Enhanced Dialogue Interface.ini" file. Ingame showcase here.
It's not imperatively necessary, but highly recommended (as they work great in tandem) to also install this mod for improved subtitiles look from the same author. Installation way is the same, and you can configure this one through the .INI file as well.
Lastly, if you don't have time or don't want to fiddle with the configuration files, you can get one of many beautiful presets (.INI files) available here. Sprint Stuttering Fix Fixed twitching/stuttering when sprinting in first person on uneven terrain. Download the "Sprint Stuttering Fix" file (the one that has "Requires SFSE" text). Place the "SprintStutteringFix.dll" to Starfield SFSE plugins folder. Sprint Headtracking Bug Fix Fixes a bug where the player head is permanently stuck facing the left or right after jumping while sprinting without a weapon drawn. Place"Meshes" folder to Starfield Data folder. Weapon Swap Stuttering Fix Fixed stuttering when changing weapons. Get the SFSE version. Place the .dll file to the Starfield SFSE plugins folder. Enable Loose File Modding ==NEW== [Optional mod]. If you prefer to fiddle with the StarfieldCustom.INI file as least often as possible, you can install this mod to make the loose files modding (lines for that are part of my StarfieldCustom.INI file) and automated process ran by CCR command. Place the .toml file to CCR folder. Crash Logger ==NEW== Provides a crash log that can be (not guaranteed, but still) useful when troubleshooting a game crash. Place the .dll file to SFSE plugins folder. Starfield Silent Voice A SFSE plugin that adds support for unvoiced in-game dialog added by mods. There are no such mods right now, but this one sitting inside your game folder will not do any harm nor affect performance, and when such will be released - you will already have it.

Bug or various little annoyances fixes:

Old Earth Shotgun Pump Fix ==NEW== Resizes and moves the old earth shotgun's pump to be less weird. Place the "Geometries" folder to Starfield data folder.


For vastly majority of the mods in this section, installation is the same - place the "Sound" folder to Starfield Data folder. In rare cases of other installation way, I'll provide an instruction.

Starfield High Pitch SFX Tinnitus Fix Removes frequencies above 10khz for every high pitch tinnitus sound for over 30 ingame sounds. More Subtle Scanner Sounds Replaces over 45 "scanner" and menu sounds without the high pitch frequency. More Subtle Quest Music Similar mod from the same author for the mission sounds. More Subtle Level Up Sounds Replaces the endless and dramatic orchestral level up music with faithful percussion ambience and less harsh noise. Silent Sounds - Immersive Gameplay by Xtudo Removes Level Up, Location Discover, Mission related, Skill Magazine read and similar sounds. Intended for a more immersive gameplay. Choose one/several of separate versions or the AIO (all-in-one) version. Stellar Soundtrack ==NEW== Replaces much of the space and planet music with music from StellarDrone. City Background Music ==NEW== New ambient background music for the 4 main cities. Look at the mod page for the track samples. No Combat Music - CCR Simple as that. More ambient combat for the people who don't like the combat music in the game. Updated, CCR version of the mod - so make sure to delete the original .txt version if you have it and remove the corresponding bat command from your StarfieldCustom.INI, then place the .toml file to CCR folder. Stop Whistling UC Security Stops the UC Security, most noticeably in New Atlantis, from whistling. Silent Data Menu Sound This mod mutes the sound effect played when opening and closing the Data/Dashboard menu. Bleeding Edge Melee weapons sound overhaul. Immersive Explosives Sounds - I.E.S Replaces the explosive priming and throwing sounds of both mines and nades to something much more sci-fi instead of re-used FO4 sound. OrgasmicSneeze profile ==NEW== For multi-option shooting sound replacers for many weapons. AzureFailure profile ==NEW== For Star Wars inspired sound replacers for various shooting weapons. Satisfying Headshots - Sound Overhaul Stellar Sounds (Headshot Sound Options) No Headshot and Crit sounds ==NEW== Variations for better headshot sounds - or to remove them entirely instead. Use one of the mods. I personally prefer "Alternate" or "CSGO" sound from Stellar Sounds. Enhanced Digipick Sounds - Vanilla Plus - Lockpicking ==NEW== Less harsh. Vanilla plus. Subtle Enhancement. Removed some highs and cleaned them up. No more earpiercing sounds! Elevator sound replacer Replaces the elevator startup sound at New Atlantis/Cydonia/Neon that clearly has too many bits from the fallout 4 one. Boost Pack Sound Overhaul Six new sound profiles to replace the default boost pack ignition noises. Pick one. Children of the Sky - A Starfield Song by Imagine Dragons Main Menu Music Replacer This replaces the Main Menu music with Imagine Dragons' song "Children of the Sky - A Starfield Song". Blade Runner 2049 - Gun Sound Replace sounds for Regulator pistol. That pistol look very similar as the one from the film, so, why not? promethean light rifle sound replacer for orion Replaces the firing sound of the orion energy rifle to the sounds of halo 5's light rifle. Spoken Hazard Alerts Voiced mod will alert you when an environmental hazard is near. Choose one of the versions. Fallout 3 SFX Level Up Sound Fallout New Vegas SFX Level Up Sound Skyrim SFX Level Up Sound Several mods to replace the original lvlup sound to something familiar.



Consider Reshade a sort of an advanced "intagram filter" that overlays itself on the game image to change color palette, improved shadows, ambient occlusion and some other details. While much simpler and less feature-packed than ENB for Skyrim, a good Reshade preset shouldn't be underestimated as it can noticeably improve the game look in the way [you] like it.
For the installation instructions, proceed to the chose Reshade preset page.

Rudy ReShade for Starfield In my humble opinion, the best Starfield Reshade preset. Amazing balance of colors, brightness and shadows, supports for all popular LUT mods (see below) and different versions inside the same preset - natural, vibrant and cinematic. And on top, already configured (but disabled by default) DOF (depth of field) and Letterbox (cinematic black bars) options if you need to make some stunnign screenshots or record video pieces. Try it for sure! Real Starfield ReShade My second favourite so far - a really well balanced, hihgly cinematic preset. Deep Detail ReShade Gives your game a sharper, cinematic, darker look with deeper shadows. Quantum Reshade One more well-balanced preset. Looks pretty similar to the preset above, while bit a bit less darker and with a bit of a blue tint. Has several versions that are somewhat different from each other - try a couple. Deep Space ReShade Desaturated cinematic preset. Deep Space ReShade A preset with an attempt (as limited as it's possible now) into a photorealism. ON TOP RESHADE Vibrant, color-boosting preset. Natural Life - Reshade Balanced preset focused on realism. Starpunk Reshade ==NEW== Vanilla+, contrast-boosting preset. SpacesDark ReShade VERY dark preset likely not suitable for most of players, but would be good for hardcore lovers as you'll need a flashlight most of the times with it. Viper's screenshot and gameplay ReShade Cinematic preset with cutsom DOF, good for screenarchery.




Installation: mods in this section will have either "Textures" (in most of cases) or "Meshes" (in some cases) folders, or (rarely) the files with ".ba2" extension. Place this folders/files to Starfield Data folder - it's same for all the mods here.

LUT mods:

NaturaLUTs - Color Graded Filter Removal and Black Level Restoration LUTs Neutral LUTs - No Color Filters Base LUTs Stellar LUT Gravity LUT NAS - Natural and Atmospheric Space KODACHROME - The NASAPunk Vintage Collection ==NEW== These ones are not to be confused with Reshade presets. LUTs are color palette texture file collections. You can use them without Reshade at all, or use together of the preset of your choice to furtherly adjust colors in your game. Some Reshade presets, for instance, Rudy Reshade, are calibrated specifically for certain LUTs. To install any of these, place "Textures" folder to Starfield Data folder.

VFX mods (impacts, fires, decals, weather and lighting and various other visual effexts):

EXE - Effect Textures Enhanced Huge amount of the VFX effects in the game improved. Muzzleflashes, storms, blood, explosions, lasers, and more. A WIP (work in progress) mod, so check it from time to time for more crispy textures added. Note: both this mod and the EBT (below) are retexturing blood decals, so these files will conflict and trigger and overwriting prompt. If you like EBT blood textures more, overwrite this mod files with EBT's in the next step. Otherwise, the EBT is not needed. Enhanced Blood Textures Starfield A blood retexture mod. Ingame showcase here. Improved Water Splash Effects ==NEW== More Dramatic Grav Jumps Changes grav jump animations. Now they play longer and with more dramatic views. Different options available - pick the one you prefer and from it, place the "Meshes" folder together with the mod .esp plugin into Starfield data folder. Remember that you ened to active the .esp plugin - if you're not sure how to do this, refer to the Preparations section of the guide. More Immersive Landings And Takeoffs Makes landings and takeoffs sequences a little more immersive. Everytime during these sequences you will also get the cockpit view. Choose [one] .esp plugin and place it to Starfield data folder. Remember that you ened to active the .esp plugin - if you're not sure how to do this, refer to the Preparations section of the guide. Mods works fine together with the one above. Improved Engine Trail Glow ==NEW== Make the hideously long engine trail glow more timid. No Space Dust Removes the visually obstructive space dust when flying around in your ship. Lens Flare Removal Does what it says. If the lens flare bothers you, just remove it with this mod. Starfield Dynamic Weather Mod CCR ==NEW== Dynamic weather mod which changes the weather automatically as you play, even allowing new weather variations in different climates/biomes. Place the .toml file to CCR folder.

World object retextures (cities, ships, flora etc) in form of large packs:

Starfield HD Reworked Project The legend in improving models and textures for Witcher 3 and Skyrim, now with a texture overhaul for Starfield. Landscape, architechture, metal and concrete, paintings and rocks, effects and NPCs improved textures - all in a single pack - growing in coverage with every update. A great "base" texture overhaul with other texture packs to be installed on top. Skurkbro's Retexture Project - Starfield WIP mod that aims to cover all Starfield surfaces with a hand-made HD textures. Comparison showcase here. Landscape Textures Overhaul ==NEW== Another great large landscape textures overhaul. A good idea to install this one on top of HDRP and Skurkbro ones as this one has, imo, the best looking landscape textures, but both HDRP and Skurkbro mods cover other textures this one doesn't. SavrenX Crisp Flora Same texture size as vanilla but a noticeably better quality for Starfield flora. SavrenX Stone Similar mod from the same author, for the rock and stone textures. "Landscape Textures Overhaul" covers most of the same textures SavrenX has for stones and caves - so choose which one you want here. SavrenX mods have really great textures, but they are often pretty different from vanilla look, while Landscape Textures Overhaul mostly stick to great quality, but at the same time, almost doesn't change the vanilla style itself. SavrenX Cave And caves. BorderFields - Fauna ==NEW== Retexture of the various Starfield animals to give them a Borderlands-inspired look. Enhanced Starfield Clouds Noticeably improved clouds. Showcase here.

Character mods (eyes, skin etc). If there are multiple NPC visual overhauls listed - choose one:

Starfield Eye Material Fix Repainted normal and roughness maps for the eyes in starfield, vanilla eyes caused a visual distortion where the roughness would make the pupil look grey, instead of black. this aims to fix that for a more natural look, more detail in normal map for iris. The Eyes of Beauty - Starfield Edition The most popular eye retexture mod for Skyrim and Fallout 4, now for Starfield. Daraki's HD Eye Textures Kanjs - Eyes Couple other comple eye replacer mods. Cyborg Eyes Nobody's eye colors Smaller mods replacing just some of the eye colors. Eyes Brows and Lashes Redone - MonstrrMagic Texture Series ==NEW== High resolution retexture of eyes, eyebrows and eyelashes. Pekoe Eyes and Lashes ==NEW== ABS Body Simple as that. VBB (Voluptuous Body for Beauties) ==NEW== New body models for females. Look at the mod page for demonstration. Athletic Fitness Muscle Texture For your character body. XS Sporty Sexy Sweat - Wet body skin texture for Starfield XS Sporty Sexy Map - Athletic fitness muscle texture XS Ripped - Male Sporty Sexy Map Athletic fitness muscle texture Peko's 4K Face Texture Improved faces textures with deeper pores. 4K Face Smooth lips High-res, smoother textures for face and lips from the same author. SavrenX Hair HD hair textures for everyone in the game. HD Teeth HD 4K Scars x9 WAR OF THE STARS TATTOOS Ink of the Belt Cybertat01 Replacers for vanilla tattoos. SavrenX HD NPC Optimized A massive facelist for huge number of Starfield important NPCs with a great quality. Note: huge mod size as well, so make sure your internet connection is stable for the download. SavrenX HD Crowd Optimized A mod from the same author, for better looking crowd NPCs. High-Res NPCs - Sarah CRT - Andreja Has several versions to choose from. Make up for Andreja More goth look without moles. Supervisor Lin Clean COMMANDER IKANDE With Tattoo's and NEW Eyes Vasco Variants Crowd NPC eye Ambient occlusion Fix Adds Ambient Occlusion to the eyes of crowd npc's.

Everything else:

Dpillari profile ==NEW== For various HD retextures for small objects and clutter. 2560x1440 (WQHD) Cutscenes FMVS - 60 FPS AI Interpolated 3440x1440 (UWQHD) Cutscenes FMVS - 60 FPS AI Upscaled and Interpolated 2560x1080 (UWFHD) Cutscenes FMVS - 60 FPS AI Upscaled and Interpolated 5120x1440 (Dual-QHD) (DQHD) Cutscenes FMVS - 60 FPS AI Upscaled and Interpolated Mods doing same thing - upscaling and interpolating quality of the custcenes (artifact "vision" videos) for various monitor types. Place the "Video" folder to Starfield data folder. No visions for artifacts powers and unity Or maybe you're tired of those and want to remove them entirely? Choose your preferred version/s and place the "Video" folder to Starfield data folder. Fog Remover - CCR Starfield is unbelieveable foggy absolutely everywhere, often for just no reason. This mod removes most of the fog. Pace the .toml file to CCR folder. New Atlantis Plus - Enhanced Trees This mod changes some of the textures of a handful of the types of trees in New Atlantis (as well as elsewhere where assets are reused) to be more realistic and less "nuclear green". Bog's Grog Retexture Drink Up Me Hearties Old World Refreshments (Fallout x Starfield) Bringing the Flavor of the Old World from the Fallout Universe into Starfield! Plated not Crated ==NEW== Removes all the gross tupperware that surrounds your delicious food. Making it more yummy. Stellar Glass Tired of the glass looking horrible, way too muddy and not being able to see through it most of the time? Let's fix it. Real Flashlight Choose one of the main file versions. Use this mod or the one below. Vanilla Flashlight Improved (VFI) Download the mod archive, unzip it and choose one version from the several available in the folder. Use this mod or the one above (tis one is my favourite here). Ingame showcase here. Starfield Display Revamp Real Milky Way Galaxy Expansive Starfield Realistic Stars Milky Way Galaxias ==NEW== Choose one of the mods above to change the look of the night sky. HD 4K Boardgames Get the 2k version from the Optional Files tab. Stellar Water Two mods for improved water textures. You can install both in the order as they are listed and overwrite conflicting files. Ads and Signs Redone ==NEW== High resolution retexture of advertisements, signage, flags, murals and vending machines. Starfield Billboards and Posters Edited Billboard/poster advertisements in most of the settlements. Mod showcase here. Old Earth posters - outpost replacers Replaces some of the posters available as decorations in the outpost builder. K747's Cypress Tree Upgrade for New Atlantis ==NEW== Comes in two versions. I personally prefer the "green" one. NASA Visions Of The Future Posters Replacer ==NEW== Replaces 18 vanilla posters with peices of official NASA artwork. Vintage and Retro Movie Posters ==NEW== A retexture of the outpost poster decorations featuring vintage and retro sci-fi movie posters. Realistic Biome Planets ==NEW== Artifacts Redone High-res retexture of Constellation artifacts. 4k version recommended in this case. Psychedelic Electric Flaming Aurora ==NEW== Several animated looks for Aurora glass. Lore friendly Immersive Vending Machines Retextures of vending machine displays around Starfield settlements. Improved Transit Signs for New Atlantis More detailed transit signs for New Atlantis. Improved NAT Lettering ==NEW== Clear Glass for NAT ==NEW== Improvements to New Atlantis Transit wagon signage and glass. Claptrap mini bots ==NEW== Replaces mini bots with Claptrap robot model from Borderlands. Alternate Shepherd's Sign Replaces the Shepherd's sign with something not painfully basic. Easy Read Dark UI - Display Screens ==NEW== This mod replaces the in-game displays to be in line with Easy Read Dark UI. Place the "Textures" folder to Starfield Data folder. Dark Terminal Display ==NEW== A terminal texture replacer that goes well with dark terminal screen mods. Place the "Textures" folder to Starfield Data folder.

Look on the mod page screenshots for demonstration to see if you're actually even bothered by this to use it. Immersive Debris - CCR See the aftermath of ship battles with their debris still floating about for much longer than by default, with more debrig floating around.



Already at Medium/Low graphics settings preset but still not enough FPS? Some mods and tips for low-end (older/not so strong) PCs to improve your performance. At the same time, if you feel you could use a few extra FPS even if your rig is powerful, you can still look at the options here.

Starfield Texture Optimization - Overhaul This mod is meant for low-end PCs to help improve performance by downscaling textures to lower resolution compared to the base game. Choose either 1k version (2 files), or rather 512 or even 256 version, depending on how much performance help you need. Place the ".ba2" files/s to Starfield Data folder. Starfield Performance Optimizations Get the "Low" preset file. Unzip the archive and place the file from it into your Starfield root folder, approving overwriting. Next time you'll launch the game, make sure to switch the settings preset back and forth to your one (for instance, set preset to Ultra and then back to Low) to make sure changes are applied. Alternatively, you can also try this settings for Medium and Low presets, as well as this and see which one will give you a better boost.

Congratulations!

You did it, Dusty! Now it's time to enjoy your Starfield - just make sure to double-check everything (mod files installed correctly, configuration files tweaked where needed etc) and give your game a few hours test run before starting a "real" walkthrough - to see everything is up to your likings.
