The Saints Row series is one of the most well-known sandbox open-world games of all time. The first two games were possibly too significantly influenced by Grand Theft Auto. However, there were still many fans of this series, and following the release of Saints Row: The Third and Saints Row 4, this popularity grew. These games established the Saints Row series’ signature absurdity.
With the relaunch just around the bend, now is the ideal opportunity to experience the fan-favorite zaniness and absurdity of Saints Row. Check out the following modifications if you want your Saints Row: The Third experience to be unique and unforgettable. Starting with Saints Row: The Third is a wonderful choice in this respect.
With the relaunch just around the horizon, there’s no better time than now to revisit the past games in the series and relive their utter lunacy. In this aspect, Saints Row: The Third is a fantastic game that every lover of open-world games should check out, and the following modifications will allow PC users to enjoy Saints Row: The Third even more.
In this aspect, Saints Row: The Third is a fantastic game that every lover of open-world games should check out, and the following modifications will allow PC users to enjoy Saints Row: The Third even more.
1) Shitface’s Weapon Rebalance Mod
Our great buddy with the expressive moniker of Shitface has created one of the finest SR3 community modifications.
This patch completely rebalances the game’s weaponry system, with changes ranging from simple tweaks to altering the trajectories of certain kinds of ammo. Regardless of where you are in the game, you should install this mod immediately.
If you’ve been playing for a long, you’ll notice the changes more. If you haven’t already, you will rapidly adjust to the adjustments. Especially given the several entertaining weaponry available in SR: Third.
2) CRJ Saints Row The Third Remastered ‘Ultimate’ ReShade Preset
Reshades are a typical option for every game mod, since they are among the simplest modifications to do with noticeable effects. The CRJ Saints Row The Third Remastered ‘Ultimate’ ReShade Preset mod is one of the best reshade modifications for the game that fans can download.
It’s the ideal mod for Saints Row: The Third remastered editions. It is recommended for players who are re-playing the game or who are weary of its plain appearance, since the aesthetic touches it adds represent a significant shift from the original’s graphics.
3) NPC Behavior and Spawn Mod
This mod, created by the SR legend known as Shitface, does an excellent job at revamping how the AI functions and spawns. It makes spawning far more natural and modifies how the AI interacts with the player and the game environment.
Notoriety has been significantly updated and enhanced to function even better than in the base game. After installing this mod, evading the police becomes much more enjoyable. Thank you, Douchebag.
4) Vibrant Reshade
The Vibrant Reshade mod is another another reshade mod included on this list. True to its name, it makes the game’s colours seem more vibrant and beautiful than ever before.
Always remember that reshading may be somewhat subjective, and the majority of individuals may not even appreciate the improvements. However, when they click, they click hard, and Vibrant Reshade is an excellent mod that allows users to push their visual limits.
5) Things To Do in Steelport
5) Things To Do in Steelport Nonetheless, I believe it is vital to investigate. In a game as vicious as Saints Row, the inclusion of a family-friendly version is funny.
However, this just indicates that there are no nudity modifications present. This patch incorporates the greatest modifications from this list, as well as a few of additional important mods, to help you maximise your Steelport experience.
6) SR4 Hairstyles for SR3
6) SR4 Hairstyles for SR3 However, for some players in the gaming world of today, character customization possibilities are quite limited.
With this mod, players will be able to employ the hairstyles from Saints Row IV in Saints Row: The Third, at the very least. It’s a little tweak, but it makes a world of difference for players that care about these particulars. The fact that these haircuts maintain their physical properties is also a wonderful touch.
7) Saints Row: The Third Overhaul
This is an even better Saints Row mod than the previous one on my list, since it simply includes modest tweaks that enhance the game’s most important components. Game enhancements are essential to this Overhaul.
But it also includes a plethora of visual enhancements that will vastly improve the game’s appearance. Even though it’s only a compilation, this mod makes the game appear far better than the original. And the modifications make the gameplay more enjoyable.
8) SRTT Challenge Mod v3.8
Saints Row: The Third is undeniably a fantastic game, but few gamers would classify it as challenging. Weapons and upgrades are plentiful across the board, and the experience is not exactly demanding. The majority of players will find the game to be simple.
This Saints Row: The Third challenge mod, according to its name, makes the game more difficult without being unjust to players. From tougher and more numerous foes to lesser health reserves, this mod is not for those seeking a more relaxed experience with this game. For those who like a challenge, though, it is ideal.
9) Sandbox Mod
If you’ve already completed the game, you should immediately download this modification. Sandbox mode will provide hours of entertainment that you cannot even comprehend until you try it.
It allows you to modify almost every element of the game. Imagine having control over whether you want your character to get inebriated or disoriented, upgrading weaponry instantly, and determining how much cash you have without having to enter codes. This modification enables you to accomplish that and much more.
There are just too many new features for a single post to cover them all. I urge you to investigate this in order to surprise yourself along the road.
10) 99.9% and 100% Save File Mod
This patch provides a save file, as its name suggests, however it is only compatible with the original Saints Row 3 “The Full Package” on Steam and not the remastered version published in 2020. If you do not have the DLC, it will likely function.
The 100% save file completes the game and essentially gives you everything, whilst the 99.9% save file is practically complete and requires just a snapshot with one fan near the casino. As a bonus, there is also a 70% save file, which is when the game becomes the most fascinating.
Before copying the files, the mod developer recommends shutting Steam and Saints Row 3 entirely and unplugging from the internet. Beginning in October 2020, you will be able to store your work to the cloud, which will essentially take care of overwriting the save file.
After you launch the game, you’ll be asked whether you want to download files from the cloud or utilise local copies (your computer). Enjoy the game by selecting the local files.
11) Ultimate Immersion and Gameplay Overhaul Mod
If you just want to download one mod, here is the page for you. It is one of the most comprehensive Saints Row 3 modifications that overhauls the game and alters your perspective. This mod contains, but is not limited to, a first-person camera (which is optional), a sandbox to play in, SweetFX, an HD Texture pack for incredible visuals, a Realism Damage mod for more realistic behaviour, and enhanced Weapon Textures.
It also adds female police and extra blood to make the game more “visual.” The sole limitation is that it must be run with DirectX 9 for the HD visuals to function; otherwise, they would be ineffective.
To prevent first-person body clipping (your character’s edges passing through walls and textures), you must remove all clothing, including shoes and undergarments. It is purely a matter of code, and there is no way around it.
Another piece of advice is to disable the HUD, since the game is far more immersive without it. The HUD may be toggled by hitting “9; semicolon.” When entering automobiles, you can also zoom in by hitting RS.
12) Unofficial Patch v1f0.0.1 (En) for SR3
Fans of Bethesda games may be ecstatic about the existence of an unofficial patch for Saints Row 3. In contrast to the updates for the Elder Scrolls and Fallout games, this specific patch does not correct a significant number of flaws. Instead, it modifies and improves the game’s balance by adjusting some of the game’s mechanics.
The most notable difference is that the main character’s health is identical to that of NPCs. This may result in challenging fights, as players must effectively manage their health while landing precise strikes.
13) Ultimate 100% Save File Mod
The difference between this 100% Ultimate Save File and the previously described 99% mod is that this one unlocks numerous rare items and completes the game. In addition to having a save file that is 100% full, you also get a number of rare vehicles, unobtainable costumes, and a few intriguing bonuses. It also lacks the custom characters and vehicles included in the majority of save files.
With this Ultimate File File, you will get a save that is not penalised for cheating, retains all upgrades, assassinations, and vehicle thefts, and has all items and activities performed or unlocked.
In addition to interesting and unique vehicles such as those seen in the pony cart assignment, you also get to utilise the glitched laser gun as an extra bonus (do note that the use of the laser requires you to have the Gangstas in Space DLC).
All cheats have been inputted and enabled, and the final save file’s spawn place is the Saints’ headquarters. You may examine the whole list of unlocked vehicles and costumes in the official download file.
14) Uncut Patch Mod for German Version
This is a small modification (really a patch) designed exclusively for the German Low Violence edition. It replaces both the.exe and.vpp pc files with those from the uncut English version.
In addition to removing the censorship, this patch also addresses various other difficulties with the German version, such as the inability to employ people as human shields, the inability of civilians to drop money, and it allows the wh*red mode.
As a side note, we should emphasise that this makes the German version of the game unusable, so you will likely only be able to continue the tale in English. Downloading the mod is straightforward, however there are two methods to do it.
You may either download and utilise the optional files given in the link, or you can use the check file integrity option if you are playing the game directly on Steam.
