One thread for all your modding needs!



Firstly, you'll need to learn how to use the mod tools, so read this. How to use Gibbed's Modding Tools



I'd also recommend you take a look at the The Saints Row modding Wiki for any other tips for making your own mods.



For any players, modders or testers there's a Steam Group here for you to join. It's open so you don't need an invite.

--------------------------------------------------



IMPORTANT STUFF



If the file is from the common archive, it still goes in the rebuilt patch file. If a file is in both common AND patch, the file from patch will be loaded.



Make a back-up of your original patch.vpp archive, neither I or any modders on this forum will take any responsibility if your SR screws up and you have to reinstall your game.



--------------------------------------------------



In this section I'm going to add some of the best mods you can find.

Hey, I don't wanna spend the time finding a picture to be my avatar. This is a default one, so if you want me to change it, it will. Besides, most people over at www.facepunch.com would agree with me that his avatar is stupid and not funny whatsoever. (and usually takes no skill as well) 10 year olds usually make pictures like those from my experiance over at facepunch

I didn't know this thread was about how funny his avatar is.

But more on topic, I don't think we really have the tools to make such a body modification mod. We'll probably have to wait until Saint's Row 3 comes out for that kind of thing.

Here's hoping for a height slider, too, but that's probably too much even for Volition. :D

Let me get this right...

You came to this thread to wank off about FuckPunch and simply say "Luke, your avatar isn't funny"

If so, I would scream.

In the PC version of Saints Row II, is there a way to get the Ronin to like you and think you're one of them, and be able to Recuit them? I ask because there seems to be a rare glitch on Xbox Live where all of a sudden, you're faction is with the police, so everytime you point your guns at a cop, it would mark them with a Green X like the Saints. So, i was wondering if there's a way to change your Faction on the PC version. :)

I love that idea. The Ronin as your homies. Oh hell yeah.
