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!
These mods are included in the compilation:
Avatar Rampage v4: Take control of the giant dragon avatar from the "deckers.die" mission and wreak Havoc in Steelport!
Vehicle Camera First Person Mod v3: (With FOV Fix): Drive vehicles in first person, and enjoy SR3 with an FOV more appropriate for high resolution monitors.
NPC Behaviour and Spawn Mod v64: Probably the best mod ever for Saints Row 3. This mod overhauls the spawns, AI, gangs, police and much more to dramatically improve Steelport's appearance and make it feel much more alive. Hundreds of new vehicles and pedestrians now spawn, and improved AI will give you much more emergent gameplay: pedestrians will often do random and hilarious things, one small fight on the street can evolve into total chaos!
Shitface's Weapon Re-Balance Mod v3.5.3: This mod adds new weapons that you can add to your inventory, new weapon upgrades, and dramatically improves the functionality of all weapons, giving many of them better physics and effects. Also improves the destructo-physics for many objects on the street (garbage cans, fences, etc) and gives the firetruck a flamethrower! This mod also adjusts the prices of some properties and upgrades to balance out the economy. You'll need to manage your money more carefully and won't be sitting on mountains of useless cash before you're close to finishing the game!
Alternate Times of Day + Enhanced Weather v5.3: Seriously improves the weather system in SR3. The weather will now change much more often, with many different sky and lighting settings added to make the game look better. Also includes different sky settings that you can choose from. I'd highly recommend using Idolninja's Sandbox+ mod with this for the day/night cycle.
Extended Taunts v1.4: Adds around 40 new taunts for you to customize your character with!
Super Cat & Mouse: Improves the "Cat and Mouse" minigame by adding many new vehicle combinations!
Increased Property Prices: Combined with the weapon upgrade price increases in my weapons mod, this allows you to truly feel the economic downturn in Steelport. You'll need to spend your money more carefully, and won't end up owning every property and upgrade with nothing else to spend your cash on by level 20.
Starting a new game is strongly advised. Using this mod pack with a pirated version will cause the game to crash. Why not just buy it anyway? It's like 5 bucks.
Enjoy! If you like this mod, please leave a review and comment! :)
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.”
“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!”

“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!”
“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.”
