The Starfield Community Patch (SCP) project is a collective effort by mod authors and the wider player community of Starfield to fix bugs, errors and other inconsistencies present in the game. This includes tweaks, typos and other changes that may have been missed (or not yet released) by the developers. The overall goal is to improve the vanilla experience for all players.
Fixes included in the patch are intended to correct bugs or errors in the base game, examples include:
The patch is not intended to include any of the following:
The Community Patch is intended be owned by the community, rather than an individual or team. This means it will be open to contributors and the responsibility for creating the latest build may shift and change over the life of the game.
The "official" releases will be made available on Nexus Mods, with more bleeding edge builds shared via GitHub (TBC) or in private testing groups.
There is intended to be a core team of contributors who are likely to be trusted content creators who will manage the merging and applying of the fixes before shipping it to users.
The project uses the [TBC!] license which means the patch itself is open source, but any mods that depend it are welcome to use any permissions or license defined by the mod author.
The Community Patch (in whole or in part) should never require payment to access, this includes any "early access" builds. The patch itself will allow donations and will earn reward points via the Nexus Mods Donation Points Scheme. These donations will be distributed (as fairly as possible) among the core contributors to the project. The details of which should be posted publicly for accountability.
You don't have to be a mod author to contribute to the Community Patch! There are a few different ways to do so.
Please remember that any information or changes you share for the Community Patch will be released freely for others to use.
