To install the Quantum Reshade mod in Starfield, follow these simple steps:

  • First, download the Quantum Reshade mod from the Nexus site. (You might need to create an account if you don’t have one).
  • After downloading the mod file, you’ll need to paste the preset file (usually ending with “.ini”) and “reshade-shaders” folder into the Starfield game directory.

Starfield location:

Local Disk (C:) > Users > Documents > My Games > Starfield 

Starfield location (Steam):
