I’ve been invited by @SteveJaros from Volition to LA next week for “Saints Row shenanigans” that include a chance to see the recording process, and hands on time with the game including giving feedback to the devs!
I’m both honored and excited to be a part of this. I can’t wait!
I didn’t think that a super jump was actually going to be possible to mod in. Nooskid007 has proven me wrong today by releasing a work in progress video showing it in action. He still needs to sort out the camera tracking the player, but it certainly is a promising start.

Released a mod that patches all the in-game billboards to the promo/preview Enter the Dominatrix ones from the cancelled expansion.
Now that I have the framework in place, I also started working on an 80/90s Steelport movie festival mod that replaces all the in-game billboards with classic movie posters and art. You can check out the full wip thread here.
