Euphoria Ragdoll Overhaul - E.R.O (2022)

GTA V was the most dissappointing when it came to Euphoria including games. RDR and Max Payne 3 were the best and IV didn't come much behind. What I've done is bring GTA V to the same level or close to what those two games represent of the Euphoria real-time ragdolls. Much work was involved to ensure best reactions GTA V Euphoria can do.

Don't forget to check my other realism experience mods!

Features:

-GTA IV car pushing is back! Peds no longer fall on the ground instantly when pushing with vehicle
-Targets will try to balance much longer if they're alive after shot
-Targets grab and hold where they're hurt and try to balance at the same time (Much like RDR), neck shots look extremely brutal 'cause of this when peds try to stop the bleeding with their hands
-Shooting someones leg now reproduces correct reaction from them, trying to balance but eventually collapsing if hurt enough
-Targets can enter a shock-state when shot in chest
-No more weird force shit when blasting someone up-close (Shotgun to face for example lifted target of the ground to create that "Hollywood" effect)
-Chance to drop on knees on death and stay there for a while
-Armed individuals will sometimes enter "last stand" and shoot you when balancing (Even with two handed weapons)
-Shooting in the gut can cause tension in the body to deal with the immense pain
-Headshots are usually insta-ragdoll but with a chance of leg twitching, body tension, grabbing the wound
-Better electrocuted effect, no more insta dropping and twitching but now targets will try to balance the muscle shock
-Running peds over look more natural as they don't auto-roll over the car
-Better bracing for impact reaction
-Melee now looks much better with this new "grab where it hurts"-reaction, stabbing especially
-Explosion make targets try and cover their heads from the blast, putting their hands above their head
-And pushing people is now more easier and their balance is better
-Probably a lot of shit I forgot, watch the video and pics and you see what I mean

Changelog 1.9.4:

-Euphoria stiffness set to absolute minimum
-Improved bumping with car, not overdone
-Gruesome hit and run physics
-Car grabbing will not trash your car now and is not intrusive so it is enabled for everyone
-Slowed tumbling down hill a bit

Changelog 1.9.3:

-Removed pedBounds file, balancer looks smooth without it now
-Headshot trauma reactions now happen only when target is lying on ground and legpedaling is a lot more subtle now
-Legshots have higher chance of knocking peds to the ground
-Reduced shot reaction time from 2.5 secs to 1 sec (Means that peds who are balanced will blend back into animation after 1 sec)
-2.ver available, no car grabbing and with car grabbing (peds try to grab any part of your car, no grab version still has door grab on)

Changelog 1.9.2:

-Removed Materials.dat, now using new parameter found in physicstask to modify friction
-Fixed headshots in "NO TRAUMA" ver. no more leg pedaling when shooting with automatic weapons
-Removed cheating forces when crashing with motorcycles resulting in much more realistic crashes
-Removed grabbing car panels, caused a lot of trouble and peds are not spiders
-Minor adjustments

Changelog 1.9.1b (2.ver):

-Added optional "NO TRAUMA" ver. without leg pedaling headtrauma effect due to requests, original chance for headtrauma are 30 percent for the first bullet, 100 percent for second

Changelog 1.9.1 (Hotfix):

-Accidentally uploaded my test files last time, these are the correct ones
with the new reactions, sorry for that...
-Materials.dat supports bullet penetration for thin metals, wood etc
-Watch new video!!

Changelog 1.9:

-*New file, Materials.Dat (More friction to peds)
-Re-Visited every reaction to ensure best experience for all
-Enabled IV style ped reaction when bumping with car, now they put their hands on the bonnet and try to step backwards,
it is a bit buggy sometimes because of GTA Vs clipping issues
-Wound grabbing while falling enabled
-Using now "drunk-style" balancing for reactions instead off staggerfall
-I can't still use video editor to show these new features so you'll have to try 'em yourself

Changelog 1.8:

-Did everything from beginning (I'm now using behaviours.xml to modify parametres instead of physicstasks, physicstasks filesize pretty much half of what it was)
-Better falling reaction to peds, more weighty (Body smack ftw)
-Better highfall reaction, no more that weird in-air animation
-Balancing adjusted to work with high and low weaponforces
-Melee'ing no longer instadrops peds, now they stumble around
-Bumping with car enabled, continued pushing will make peds try balance (If you stop pushing they might just ragdoll to the ground, no way to fix that for now. Keep pushing and they will balance till certain threshold)
-Unarmed peds will now balance better aswell, don't know what was up with that
-Explosion reactions redone
-Taser reactions redone
-Running over reactions redone
-Rolldownstairs fake forces removed
-R* editor won't let me make videos nomore dunno what's the problem
-A LOT of shit done, test yourself and report any bugs, kiitos ja kuulemiin, thanks!

(Video) GTA 5 - Euphoria Mod - Ragdolls Episode 45

It also removes "dies on ragdoll" flags for all animals

Changelog 1.3:

new feature *Realistic crashing friction and elasticity* completely optional but recommended for best reality, best used with increased deformation mod of sorts
-Removes that weird bouncy crashes from game, now cars stick more to each other when crashing, check video for clarification
-Also crashing friction multiplier set to 1.0 instead of 0.3 to have normal friction in crashes

Changelog 1.2:

-new file *behaviours.xml*
-If on fire and alive, target will try to balance and not fall, however will fall if moving fast

-Better reaction to being run over (Didn't find the modifier for balancing
when pushing with car, still under work)

Recommended mods for the best experience:
Gore'em up
Real'o weaponry
Anims for crawling Enable those crawling peds by installing only the stuff that go into x64c.rpf

Installation (Manual):
1. Open .OIV with rar/zip program and get the files
2. Create folder called naturalmotion to
GTAV/ update/ update.rpf/ common/data
and place behaviours.xml there
3. Copy Physicstasks.ymt to:
GTAV/ update/ update.rpf/ x64/ data/ tune

IF you still don't get these reactions to happen, install the Physicstasks.ymt to x64a.rpf/data/tune and
Behaviours.xml to common.rpf/data/naturalmotion/ so that the game definetely reads them

(Video) GTA 5 PC: REALISTIC DEATHS 60FPS (EUPHORIA RAGDOLL OVERHAUL) #174

Uninstallation:
-Remove the file from tune folder
-Remove "naturalmotion" folder

As always post bugs, suggestions and tips here!
