    Watch_Dogs Frequent Striking Events Mod by The Silver


    This mod increases the frequency of the freeroam striking events, and even adds some events that never occurred before.
    The striking events are things like the speeding emergency vehicles with sirens, like the ambulance or the firetruck, the small random crimes like the atm robbery or the pickpocketing, the random civilians car accidents and so on.
    With this mod you will witness these randomized events much more frequently than in the vanilla game, even if there's a hardcoded limitation of one at a time (so for example you will hardly see a speeding ambulance while pursuing a robber).
    This mod also increases the frequency of the previously rare events of patrolling cop cars, and even adds the events of patrolling foot cops that will spawn in a friendly state and patrol the streets of Chicago looking for criminals.
    The frequency is increased but not overdone to unrealistic levels, and there's still some randomness to the spawn time of these events, so that there will be very busy moments but also some long quiet moments of gameplay.


    Here are some screenshots:

    Do you know if there is any way to increase the news broadcast events that occur that cause aiden to flee from shops? (like in the 14 min demo)

    Thanks for the mod, great work :)

    WD2 probably have this same stracture, but it's Striking Events 2.0 now :p

    What do you mean exactly?

    I know its very rare, and there's a way to increase it for sure, but I don't know exactly the parameter so it would need some research (probably starting from the shopsetting.lua since inside it you can see the section that defines the shopkeeper behaviour for the news broadcast event).

    Glad you like it guys!

    Eheh! Yes considering the other cut things that I couldn't restore because they are bugged I'd say definately that for WD2 they just finished what they started in WD1.

    Ah ok I understand. Well I have no other big mod ready for release yet, but maybe I can post a minimod that I made for myself long ago, it's just a little detail but it's cool to have for immersion, stay tuned. :)

    I did notice that the broadcasts seem
    To occur more frequently compared to how low your reputation is. I’m not 100% sure, I’ll have to do more testing when I get home from vacation.

    Hi, can I just ask which file this modifies? I'm hoping to combine this mod with another pack I own. A specific .lib file will do, if that is what has been altered. Sorry if this sounds dumb, I'm very new to the Watch dogs Modding scene

    Hi, it's not dumb, in fact I have already though about this need and I've already provided a link to an archive containing only the edited files, as HeySlickThatsMe said, so check the second download link in the first post and have fun. :)

    Ah yes,thank you so much! I completely missed that. I do apologise, I didn't understand what loose files meant, but yes, thank you all for your help. Great mods in the community rn!
