The great folks over at Volition, have recently released part 1 of their Saints Row IV modding SDK.
This SDK (Release A) includes tutorials, template files, and tools for creating your own new weapon models for use ingame.
Included in this release is a demo mod showcasing a new weapon from their new title Saints Row: Gat out of Hell: Damned Impaler Mod
A separate update will allow new weapons to be added without having to remove the old files.
Included in this weapons archive, are all the weapons from 3 & VI they are not game ready, but are great for mixing and mashing together!
The last feature this release includes is an in-depth modeling tutorial.

We are looking forward to seeing what the community can create!
One of the hardest choices a developer has to make is what engine is best for their game.
Will they select to create their own engine or use one of the many middle ware solutions, like Unity or Unreal.
The Team behind the upcoming, Republic Sniper thought they made the right choice with Unity, However this soon became a problem and opting to ensure a better end product, made the hard choice to swap engines mid development.
Changing engines once development has started is hard enough, but to throw away months of work is a costly venture that many rather not undertake, along with having to learn new systems it can make or break development teams rather than resolve the issues they were looking at fixing.
