Welcome back to Steelport!

This is basically the same thing as my mod for SR3 which shares the same name. The overall goal here is to make fucking around in the open world much more fun, and to bring a lot of character and emergent gameplay back to Virtual Steelport.

Improved Spawns:

-Dozens of new NPCs and vehicle variants spawn on the streets of Virtual Steelport! Unused SR3 pedestrians and animations have been added back into the game!

-Unique spawns for each neighborhood have been imported from my SR3 mod, leading to much greater diversity in different areas of the city!

-Randomization of NPC items and props! Sometimes an NPC will be wearing a hat or glasses, sometimes not! Wowee! Their height also varies as well, so everyone isn't the exact same length anymore, which was kind of weird.

-Huge changes to notoriety! Fight cops and swat from levels 1-2, the military at level 3, and much more threatening zin from levels 4-6.

-Civilian helicopters cruise through the skies!

-Super powered enemies will randomly spawn on the street! Super Genki, your evil doppelgängers, toilets, and more!

-All available enemy gangs will spawn on the streets of Virtual Steelport! Crazy gunfights can break out in an instant!

-Watch out for Ninjas. They will fuck you up.

-Enhances Sandbox+'s zombie spawning feature! Zombies can now spawn alongside regular npcs!
(Keep in mind that zombies will not spawn in rainy weather due to a bug with the zombie flag, use the clearskies cheat for normal weather)

Enemy gangs and their home turf

All gangs can spawn in any neighborhood, but are likeliest to spawn here:

Brotherhood- Salander, New Baranec
Luchadores- Yearwood, Port Pryor
Deckers- Burns Hill, Ashwood, Brickston
Morningstar- Loren Square, Sunset Park,
Vice Kings- Camano Place, Espina, Rosen Oaks
Ronin- Henry Steel Mills, Wesley Cutter Intn'l
Sons of Samedi- Bridgeport, The Grove
Militants- Loren Square, Wesley Cutter Intn'l

Improved Behaviour:

-Aggressiveness of all pedestrians and NPCs has been increased towards each other and the player! Civilians will behave much more chaotically instead of running!

-Wardens and NPCs have been given improved reaction time, making them more challenging to fight!

-All NPCs have an improved arsenal of weapons!

-Super enemies are much more threatening, they will react and attack much faster.

Random Changes:

-Increases the radius of rift glitch effects!

-Greatly reduces the frequency of the "glitching" effect on buildings, vehicles, and NPCs.

-Includes the official and original rain mod for SR4!

-Increases cash rewards for grabbing collectible items, and completing flashpoints!

-You won't fall off of motorcycles as easily anymore!

To Install: Extract to your SR4 folder:

C:\program files\steam\steamapps\common\saints row iv

This mod also includes two other files, rain.xtbl and weather.xtbl which add random rainstorms back into the game, and
disable the post-game weather.
Move them into your SR4 directory from the "Optional Files" folder if you want this.

This mod is compatible with both Sandbox+ and Dark Rain mods. Please install it after them to avoid problems. Only use the preload_anim.vpp_pc file from this mod as it contains many animations that are not included in other mods' archives.

Compatibility warning/Bugs:

The game may hang on the loading screen following the mission 1 cutscene. Uninstall the mod and re-install it after the cutscene to get around this.

Currently not compatible with the Saints Save Christmas DLC missions. You must uninstall the mod prior to playing them. Removal is not necessary to play the Naughty and Nice and Holiday M.O.M activities.

DLC homies (minus the ones from EtD) currently do not work, due to limited space for character entries.

Thanks to:
Gibbed and Minimaul - for the tools
Idolninja - for his modding enthusiasm and help
GPZ - for compiling a list of unused peds in character_definitions and saving me a lot of time

Saints Row 2 promo

GOG.com has announced that the Saints Row series is now available on the digital distribution platform, DRM-free – along with GOG Connect compatibility. To celebrate the series’ release, GOG is offering Saints Row 2 as a free download for the next 48 hours. It’s the perfect time to look back at the best mods the Saints Row series has had, starting with a Saints Row 2 megamod.

“A massive integrated collection of mods, tweaks, and fixes that greatly enhances the game while still staying true to the spirit of the original. The mod has been carefully balanced to be used by either a newcomer or a veteran to the series, and offers 100+ new clothing items with 120+ new logos, improved weather including a darker night time and more vibrant colours in daytime, plane and boat mechanics for customizing, additional missions, new vehicle dealerships, new weapons, new cribs, new homies and gang styles, new taunts and compliments, new walking styles, 100+ new ambient music tracks for purchase, more car paints, more skin colors, tattoos, makeup, optional 360/PS3 onscreen controller prompts, new cheat codes including NPC morphs, and tons of tweaks and bug fixes.”

29 GotR spraytag

“Less health, longer regen time, locked on hardcore difficulty, no unlimited ammo rewards, less respect from activities, more respect from killing goons, carry less ammo, expensive ammunition, expensive weapons, expensive properties, even expensive clothes and accessories, less income, less cash from activities, harder missions, the bosses are a nightmare now!”

“This mod compilation contains several mods that seriously improve the gameplay in Saints Row: The Third by overhauling the game's weapons, AI, spawning, weather, and taunts in order to provide you with a much more entertaining, dynamic, and polished Saints Row 3 experience without straying too far from the feel of vanilla SR3!”

2013 06 20 00001

“Less income from properties, upgrading your vehicles is more expensive, upgrading your character is more expensive, gain respect harder/level up harder, carry less ammo for your guns, your HP regenerates slower, Brutes, Oleg, Gangs, STAG Commandos, Zombies and Boss fights are harder. Pedestrians and cars now spawn more often, and pedestrians have a higher chance of being brave and fighting back.”

“A mod that makes the world of Virtual Steelport a much less boring place to mess about in. Brings back the Steelport police, military, STAG, past gangs and so much more. Dozens of new NPCs and vehicle variants spawn on the streets of Virtual Steelport! Unused SR3 pedestrians and animations have been added back into the game! Unique spawns for each neighborhood have been imported from my SR3 mod, leading to much greater diversity in different areas of the city! Randomization of NPC items and props!”

2015 11 07 00062

“This mod adds 20 new weapons to Saints Row IV, new superpower upgrades, and some general gameplay tweaks and balances to all other weapons! This includes new melee weapons, pistols, SMGs, shotguns, rifles, explosives, and special weapons such as laser beams and suit blasters.”

Hey Face I was playing with the mod install for most of the game until the mission Keymaster as the game just hangs on the loading screen, once I uninstall your mod it works. I also have been on the saintsrowmod so I will post this comment there if you don't see this within a week, anyway great job on the mod and I hope when Saints Row Gofh comes out you will make a NPC behaviour mod for that as well.

Saints Row 4 on PC requires Steam to run. If you're running a pirated version with the mod you may experience problems.

Hiya sorry for my guest comment ^.^ I even forgot I had an account here, I don't like logging into places that don't have the secure login :p

No my steam version is fine, when I did the post I didn't read enough or look around at the background of your mods :) I can see now from your sr3 and other mods for sr4, not to mention the fact that in the install it says "steam/common" should have been the first clue ^.^

Thank you so much for improving the game they released, I mean who was on their dev side saying "lets turn the disable power into a cheat not a feature" morons...
but you have made it more challenging and I have to think twice before going into fights, I don't even have to fight to watch chaos breakout now either it feels more alive! ^.^ fixed what they ruined :)

Don't suppose you are going to be exporting sr3 weapons to sr4 anytime soon? with the same upgradeable "special perk" for each one?

Oh ALSO very happy that your mods make use of the code in a way that doesn't break none cheat saves, if I had played it with this from beginning to end I would have been on the edge of my seat all the way through hardcore mode ^.^

Just noticed your download is now missing?

Glad you're enjoying the mod.

The download isn't missing, I just re-uploaded it with some very small changes. You should also consider checking out the "Expanded Arsenal" mod I just posted here, it contains several SR3 weapons.
