Navigate to No Man's Sky/GAMEDATA/SHADERCACHE/ and delete all shader cache files or the mod will have no effect.

Place the desired .PAK file (inside the zip file) in the No Man's Sky/GAMEDATA/PCBANKS/MODS folder.

If the "MODS" folder don't exist create it. And then delete the "DISABLEMODS.TXT" in the PCBANKS folder or rename it / move it to another folder. Otherwise no mods will be loaded!

Delete the MODS folder from No Man's Sky/GAMEDATA/PCBANKS/MODS  and create a text file called "DISABLEMODS.TXT" in No Man's Sky/GAMEDATA/PCBANKS
