Hardcore Health

by cp1dell
Please explain why you're reporting this file:

Alright, so I kind of based this on the Hardcore mode for Red Dead Redemption. Where the player's health is lowered down to about the same amount as the NPCs. Read as: You're not playing as the Terminator anymore.

I'm still working on a way to find out how to edit the prices of items, payout for missions, and other things to create a full Hardcore mod for IV - similar to RDR's. But I'm not great at coding, so don't hold your breath.

So I, or anyone else that tried helping me, couldn't get a script working that edited the value for the player's max health. By default it's 400, where this mod basically lowers it to 100. I edited the values for the ped's so they can take more damage, I edited the amount of weapon resistance vehicles have, and I edited the damage value for weapons. Everything plays as normal, NPCs and vehicles can take the same amount of shots. The only difference is that there haven't been any modifications to the player, so you are as strong as an NPC.

This is a huge workaround having to edit all these values. If you don't like it and want to blow my mod out of the water, go ahead. No, seriously - make a script that lowers the player's health. It would be much better. For now, there's this mod. Replaces: explosionFx.dat, handling.dat, pedpersonality.dat, WeaponInfo.xml

Very interesting idea! I enjoy playing games on the hardest difficulty and GTA IV was in fact too easy (especially on PC).

Regarding the prices of items and payouts for missions; do you reckon it's as "simple" as changing the $ value in the games' scripts?

No idea. There's a chance that it's hardcoded into the game, in the .exe. I have no idea if there is a file, or where it's located if such one exists.

that's great!

i personally use Hardcore Mode from LCPD:FR and my modified hardcore Weaponinfo.xml. I really love hardcore but reallistic games: if i die one shot, my enemies must do it also.

Yeah, I think the health value for the player is in the .exe, so you would need a HEX Editor for that. I'm not sure if your could use some sort of script to change it though. Hopefully one day someone writes up a script that lowers the player's health down to 100 and we won't have to use this workaround.

There's no gameplay differences between and, only graphical fixes and optimizations.
