TehGM's Stalker Anomaly Modpack
Recently I started playing Stalker Anomaly. I got that itch for Escape from Tarkov - but that game is difficult, scares me when I play alone, and neither my brother nor best friend want to buy it. Stubborn!
But meanwhile, I found out about mod for Stalker Call of Pripyat called Anomaly. And it seems to scratch at least some of that itch.
And this mod is standalone (and free, but that’s a minor - I already have all 3 Stalker games), and… it allows installing its own mods (well, called “addons” technically)! And a few people expressed interest in it when I started talking about it, so I figured I build up a modpack with the mods I use… so here it comes!
The modpack of course requires Stalker Anomaly itself. This is obvious, yes - this section is just to provide easy download link!
Stalker Anomaly can be downloaded from its ModDB page - just scroll the description to “Download and Installation” section.
Download size: ~8.75GB
The modpack is just a collection of the mods I use - and I use them, so I know they work. But besides that, there’s nothing special about it - it’s not exhaustive by any means and all that.
The mods in this pack are all compatible with Stalker Anomaly 1.5.1.
The modpack comes in two flavours - the main modpack contains sound and texture mods, so it’s quite big. For that reason, I also built a Lite version of the modpack that simply doesn’t include the graphics and sound mods.
Both packs are WinRar archives with maximum compression possible.
The default version of the pack - includes all mods I use.
- Anomaly Magazines
- Anomaly Scopes
- Arszi’s Mutant Bleeding
- KUSH’s Better Weapon & Outfit Condition On Drop (Version 6)
- Escape from Tarkov Footsteps and Tinnitus Replacers

These installation steps are for installing the mods with Mod Manager. It is possible to install them without one, but I’ll not cover that here - mod manager just makes it better.
- Download JSGME mod manager from ModDB.
- Install JSGME by extracting directly into your Stalker Anomaly directory.
- Extract “MODS” folder into your Stalker Anomaly directory.
- Run JSGME.exe.
- Enable each mod. Confirm when it prompts about overwriting. Note: order matters for some mods, see below for my mod order.
- Start a new game.
Recommended Mod Order
For some mods in the pack, the installation order matters - some depend on eachother etc. You are welcome to tweak it, but this is the order I recommend, as it works for me.
JSRS P.1 - Main Addon
Anomaly Magazines 0.4.0.4
Arszi's Mutant Bleeding
Warfare Alife Overhaul - Main
Better Weapon & Outfit Condition On Drop - Version 6 (Hardcore)
High Res PDA Maps
SCO3 P.1 Real Mutant Sounds
SCO3 P.2 New Outdoor Sounds
SCO3 P.3 New Underground Sounds
SCO3 P.4 Dead Zone (No Animal Sounds)
SCO3 Addon - Anomaly Sounds
First and foremost, I am not the author of any of these mods, and I do not take credit for them. I also take no responsibility if the mod caused any damage to your game or computer - I am using these mods as well, so we’re both in it.
All mods were downloaded from ModDB.
Lastly, this mod list is not exhaustive by any means - feel free to remove ones you dislike and add new ones. However I cannot guarantee that the game won’t crash if you do that.
