Modding Could Be Coming to Saints Row IV

Modding coming to Saints Row: The Third as a "test run" for Saints Row IV

Can Saints Row get any crazier?The answer is pointing towards yes.Saints Row games don't "officially" support modding but that hasn't stopped some hardcore fans from cracking the files making their own. After all, does Saints Row really need modding? The game is already ridiculous and crazy not to mention you're super- powered and have dildo bats. Now things are about to get a hell of a lot crazier and a lot easier. Developer Deep Silver Volition, who is giving its support to the modding community, is proving a package containing “documentation, file formats, tools, and more”, which will go towards creating “what is essentially a full sdk” for Saints Row: The Third. But this is just the beginning. Even better is the suggestion that this is a “test run” for a similar set of tools for the upcoming Saints Row IV. var adunit_index = 4000; if ((adunit_index != 1000 & adunit_index != 1001) || (adunit_index == 1000 && device_category != 'MOBILE') || (adunit_index == 1001 && device_category == 'MOBILE')) { if (active_ad_units[adunit_index] != undefined) { console.log('Dyn Unit Legacy', active_ad_units[adunit_index], adunit_index); googletag.cmd.push(function () { var adunit_index = 4000; if (typeof(pubwise) != 'undefined' & pubwise.enabled === true) { console.log('Dyn PW'); pwpbjs.que.push(function() { pubwiseLazyLoad([gptadslots[adunit_index]], true); }); } else { console.log('Dyn Direct'); googletag.display('div-sjr-4000'); googletag.pubads().refresh([gptadslots[adunit_index]]); } //googletag.pubads().refresh([gptadslots[4000]]); }); } } Here is the full quote from Idol Ninja, an avid Saints row modder, explaining more. Jeff Thompson, the Studio Director of Programming at Volition, is putting together a package for us containing documentation, file formats, tools, and more on the Saints Row: The Third engine. Myself, Minimaul, and gibbed will be working closely with Jeff over the coming months to use this information to create a robust set of modding tools to supplement our existing ones and creating what is essentially a full sdk for the game! But, that’s not all! Saints Row: The Third is only the beginning! Jeff has confirmed that he will also be digging up all the Saints Row 2 info that he can so we can do the same for it as well, and that this undertaking is actually a “test run” for Saints Row IV. People will be able to create and offer new clothing, new vehicles, new guns, new npcs, new missions, and even new world! This has the ability to greatly extend the life of the series and enhance the Saints Row games in ways we have never seen.
