Welcome to the Zone Stalker.

New update aims to fix navmesh error

Server owners If you're having issues with area of decay buildings please use this mod:

Until we can port our own Stalker models!

Map has currently reached a state of optimum playability and although it is still a work in progress it can be thoroughly enjoyed in this state. Continue to expect monthly updates.

This map is a 1:1 scale recreation of the real life Chernobyl Exclusion Zone with creative liberties taken; fully exploreable with areas such as Duga Radar and the town of Chernobyl being accessible. So far, this is the most complete Chernobyl map to date! And it was all made from scratch.

Terrain Size: 419.4304 square kilometres; over 3.6 million objects placed so far!

Pripyat is a creative take on the real world data gathered from Ukraine featuring many iconic areas and landmarks from the real life location as well as many more re-imagined, STALKER inspired areas. This custom map is a nice blend between vanilla DayZ assets and custom STALKER assets and will run smoothly even on a basic vanilla server. The mission files have been included with this addon and the map is free for anyone to use with their server. The server mission files can be found in "ce.pbo" as well as in "".

Repackaging this map is strictly prohibited!


*The map addon Pripyat is made from source files owned by me, and made by me from the ground up. My friends, Boba, Jocko, and I have built this map from scratch and it is not a re-upload of any other map available on any other workshop. This map is not a port of any other map made for any other game. We were given permission by MetalurG and the authors of the addon S.T.A.L.K.E.R. Area of Decay Buildings to modify, repack, and fix the buildings present in that mod, and I have screenshots to prove this. Sadly the authors did a 180 on us, and revoked the permission they gave us in the first place. So now we can only use them as a dependency or risk getting DMCA'd.*

This map uses custom building assets from:
-ArmanIII's original unfinished Chernobyl Zone map for Arma 3 (I was given permission to modify and repack specifically his custom buildings, nothing else)
-GSC GameWorld's free to use assets from the Stalker game series' currently being utilized via a "free to include as dependency" addon called Area of Decay Buildings
-Chernobyl Zone Building by Dim Rutagan |

Has anyone been getting a navmesh error after the last 2 updates? It seems to be preventing people from joining the servers running this map.

We finally got it all figured out we are playing on the strij PVE server the only issue we are running into now is translation lol in pripyat all the items are in Russian so we can't read what certain things are some are obvious but is there a way to translate stuff or is that just how it is

you can download the launcher by searching it on the internet:

CuriousQwack33, you have full permission. We will be updating the vanilla server files with the next update coming soon at the end of this month

How do I download the DayZ SA launcher from steam?
Hachiman  [author] Jul 26 @ 1:03pm 
Hello, I would recommend downloading the DayZ SA launcher (separate from the vanilla launcher) and joining either Exiled Exclusion Zone PVE server, Strij PVE server or Black Zone of Pripyat server. All are really good and quite popular, Black Zone is PVP. Hopefully more servers will start popping up soon. Map is going to be updated within a few days now and the server files have been updated as well. Hopefully some more vanilla servers start popping up. Make sure that area of decay buildings is installed
