Donhonk’s new Gentlemen of the Row mod trailer:
Massive unlockable Integration by IdolNinja
Many of the new and old modded weapons, outfits, and even some vehicles have been tied to unlocks for story missions and activities. For this reason, it is STRONGLY recommended that you start a fresh character to experience everything the mod has to offer. Most of these items can be purchased post game except for two major mods that will NOT be available unless you start fresh:
1. Unlockable outfits (*requires new character)
2. Post Game Gang Control (*requires new character)
See the included unlockable reference text file for a breakdown of the unlockables ***WARNING! CONTAINS SPOILER!***
NPC, Movie/Game and Outfit Mod by IdolNinja * Requires new character/save
All major story npc outfits now unlock for completing that mission. New secret movie/game outfits are now unlockable by cd collection, and activities.
*NOTE Jyunichi’s jacket mesh has a morph problem with the shoulders and chest that we’re looking into. You will need to be a bit skinnier than default to have it look correct.
Gentlemen of the Row Member Outfits by IdolNinja and the rest of the gents
Scattered throughout the clothing stores, you’ll now find custom designed iconic outfits from some of the members of the Gentlemen of the Row Steam group including me (IdolNinja,) Digital, curly haired boy, Stormwatcher, Soulgate, Woggle, TC, and Mordrack. There are also a couple of special modder outfits for sale from Firespite and InnocentSam.
The Grand Total of brand new outfits in v1.7 is 36!
Post Game Gang Control by IdolNinja – * Requires a new character/save
This mod removes a hood unlock during story progression for a small area for each of the three gangs. The result is that post game you have a small area you can go to and start trouble with a gang. After getting 2+ stars with the gang, you can leave the aread and they will follow you and spawn anywhere on the map. Also, every so often, one of the gangs will still initiate a pushback. This gives post game a lot more flavor with the gangs instead of just having to fight the police and FBI all the time. The Ronin are homeless and living on the beach in the Hotels and Marina district. The Brotherhood are living out of a small warehouse in the Docks district, and the Sons of Samedi are filled with regret and shame in the Trailer Park.
CD Remix by IdolNinja and Firespite
All cd locations have been changed and now unlock brand new custom outfit unlocks based on movies and games. Some are easy to find, while others may be a bit trickier. Good luck and happy hunting!
The 4 previously unlockable music tracks have been made purchasable at Scratch That in the Easy Listening genre:
* Stereo Cha Cha
* Marvelous Singers Remix
* Bachelor Samba
Extra Car Garages and Crib Utilities by IdolNinja
Extra car garages, weapon stash, safe, wardrobe, and clipboard have been added to the Airport crib, Suburbs Dock crib, and Stilwater University Crib. A boat garage has been added to the Prison Lighthouse crib which you can find at the washed out bridge. a TV and clipboard newspaper trigger have been added to the bedroom at Saints HQ. Prices of the cribs have been adjusted for new features:
Prison Lighthouse $30k
Stilwater Dock and Suburbs Dock $20K
Airport Hanger $60K
80s Menu Mod and Tchoupa Pause by IdolNinja
This mod replaces the Main Menu KRHYME rap playlist with the 80s songs from the game. A random 80s song will be chosen each time the Main Menu loads:
* a-ha – “Take on Me”
* Culture Club – “Karma Chameleon”
* Duran Duran – “The Reflex”
* Europe – “The Final Countdown”
* Hall & Oates – “Out of Touch”
* Loverboy – “Working for the Weekend”
* Men at Work – “Down Under”
* Night Ranger – “Sister Christian”
* The Psychedelic Furs – “Pretty in Pink”
* Simple Minds – “Don’t You (Forget About Me)”
* Tears for Fears – “Everybody Wants to Rule the World”
The pause menu music has also been changed to the Tchoupa Twist by Nicolas Folmer because it is the best catchy song ever in the history of all catchy songs. It will infect you and you will sing along or else you have no soul.
Weather Saturation mod by Firespite
Increases the saturation levels outside during the day to tone down the bleached/washed out effect. The result is a world that is much more colorful. Grass is greener, billboards pop with color, and everything looks much more alive and vibrant.
Slimmer Desert Eagles by RedRage
Replaces the ugly boxy deagles with a slimmer mesh that looks more like their real life counterpart.
Silenced Pistol by RedRage
A silenced pistol has been added, as seen in the cutscene for the Ronin mission Bleeding Out. It is unlocked by doing 60 muggings, or also available at Friendly Fire post game at a large cost if you’ve already gone past 60.
Better Shells Mod by RedRage
A quick aesthetic mod that changes the handgun and rifle shells from silver to gold, and alters the shotgun shells so they actually LOOK like shotgun shells.
Ronin Katana Animations by RedRage
Changes several default animations for the katana to the Ronin versions:
Stance, walk ready, run ready, block, block flinch, move attack, flinch
The following animations are unchanged: Standard attacks, power attacks, prone attack, finishers.

Improved Escort Activity by IdolNinja
The Escort activity has been changed in two key ways:
* No penalty for weapon use
* More footage is allowed making things easier
The result is a much crazier and more fun activity where you can shoot or blow up the news vans and not have to be as careful about footage. The unlocks have been changed as well to make the activity worth doing. See the included unlockable reference for details. ***WARNING! CONTAINS SPOILERS!
Fly higher by Half Dead Wonder
Raises the sky ceiling so that planes and helicopters can fly higher
Store Saint Bump Mod by IdolNinja and Brand Newb
Simple mod that removes the bump restrictions on owned store saints. Now you can walk into them and bump them off rather than having to throw/kill/punch them if they are in your way. This is especially helpful for the Saints blocking the door at Bling Bling.

Zombie Uprising Surprise!
Who will the two new characters be this time!?
FIXES AND TWEAKS:
Ronin Mission 5 Orange Threat Level – middle cutscene crash fix
This fixes the bug where the middle cutscene of you and Pierce runing to the carts in the airport would cause the game to crash after it ended for some users. You can now watch it and no longer have to skip it.
Brotherhood mission 9 the enemy of my enemy: The countdown between waves of incoming Brotherhood has been increased from 10 seconds to 15 seconds to allow you time to actually get more rifle and RPG ammo between waves.
Bear APC XM8 Sound looping fixed (finally!)
Missing Third Colors
You’ve probably noticed a few items in game have a third blue color on them you can’t change. Well no more! Now you can change the formerly untouchable third color on Fedora 1, Tie Dye Tee, and Women’s Bra 2, so you don’t have to worry about that blue not matching the rest of your outfit.
Ragdoll force and damage of the regular desert eagle has been increased and now knocks targets back on death. The desert eagle muzzle flash reverted back to the standard original version.
Mr. Sunshine’s Coat now has the correct obscured VIDs so overshirts and undershirts do not show through the right sleeve.
All clothing has been sorted and moved to more appropriate stores. All chains are now available at BOTH Bling Bling and On Thin Ice.
Default Male Walk 1 has been restored since there were a couple of requests for a normal walk. The zombie walk has been changed to Default Male Walk 2.
Satchels are now available for purchase when halfway through game rather than the end.
Vehicle Pricing has been updated to reflect the new unlocks
Super Weapon for sale unlocks correctly delayed until final ultor stronghold is completed.
AR50 has been fixed and no longer has unlimited ammo.
The T3K Urban (TEC9) changed to single wield, since the left hand part of the mesh is messed up.
Max RPG ammo changed from 100 to 50 for balance reasons.
Chainsaw Launcher refire rate delayed slightly.
Removed memory from long chain/medallion slots, as they are not in use and broken
