Bodyguard Squads 1.0

Spawn up to FOUR independent squads and make them do stuff!

  • Choose their weapon, vehicle and model!
  • Complete driving abilities, from escorting you to chasing who you want them to. They can even attach trailers to their truck, or other vehicles to their towtruck!
  • Complete heli flying abilities, including rappeling, landing, and hooking vehicles with the Cargobob!
  • Make them cooperate, kill eachother or go after you!
  • Command them in combat, setting their priority targets!
  • Tweak their behavior to your likings!
  • Do races with them!
  • Enter their vehicle as passenger [Space] let them drive for you!

Boats and planes are not supported at the moment.

  • To set up a race, set a waypoint on your map, where the first control point should be. Then, click on the Add Waypoint option inside the new Race Commands submenu. You will see there is now a white blip on the map.
  • Repeat for the following race waypoints, being the last one the finish line. It should look like this.
  • Guide the squad(s) to where you want to start the race and click on Start race, they will drive through each race waypoint and stop at the last one.

Custom relationships with other RelationshipGroups:
  • You can now make the Squads hate certain relationshipgroups, like the cops or the Ballas. Check the Squad>Behavior>Relationships menu.
    Here is a list with all the vanilla RelationshipGroups.
Setting up custom models for your squad:
  • 1. Open the advanced_bodyguards.ini you will find in your scripts folder.
  • 2. Find "CustomStyle1Name" and change the value (Mexicans) to the Faction name you want.
  • 3. Change the values of all the CustomStyle1ModelX you will find below, providing a valid model name, like s_m_m_movalien_01, for example. Repeat the values if you don't have enough model names to fill all four inputs.
  • Save the file and start the game.

Follow the same procedure with the second custom faction defined in the .ini.

Video Tutorial, thanks to 2Goodyy for making it!

How to use
Pressing Z will open the Guard Commands menu, letting you select wich squad you want to handle.

Press ALT to enter commands mode. Instead of shooting, you will issue commands until you exit the mode pressing ALT again.

The commands you can issue depend on the Squad Leader's situation. Here's a list of currently supported commands and situations:

Squad is on foot
  • Aim+click at ground = Run there
  • Aim+click at a ped = Attack him
  • Aim+click at a vehicle = Enter that vehicle

Squad is on vehicle:
  • Aim+click at ground = Drive there
  • Aim+click at a ped = Attack him from vehicle
  • Aim+click at other vehicle = Chase that vehicle
  • Aim+click at other squads' vehicle = escort that vehicle
  • Aim+click at their own vehicle = Leave the vehicle
Latest versions feature orders issued from the menu, allowing you to manage them while they're doing stuff.

  • Police peds don't like you in their cars, and will enter a neverending loop of leaving the car and entering again.
  • If the Squad is the Army or the Police, they will give you 2 stars if you aim directly at them.

  • Added new control: shift + click on the ground will make your squad move there ignoring enemy fire.
  • Added "on foot" option for "Vehicles".

    If you select UNARMED for both Primary and Secondary weapons, the script will crash.

    DO NOT let the weapons on default. Give the ped different weapons to prevent the script from crashing.

    Hi there! I was wondering if it's possible to create a relationship group that hates/likes every group? I play Left4Santos with this but they won't attack anyone unless I shoot them once.

    @uncle T can I use my online Character as my bodyguard in this mod? So can I get my exact player model of my online Character and put it on the custom models? If so this would be so good and would open so much opportunities!!!

    @Eddlm this is your most downloaded mod by far why not update is so it at least works on the latest patch?

    January 13, 2017
  • D21c6a growing stronger

    @DisbarredOdin18 Mostly because I don't care about download numbers, but also because it works for me.

    One more reason: I plan on rewriting it, and I'd rather spend time on that than patching up the old shit this is.

    The mod has a serious problem. I cannot get in as passenger to any of the vehicles the squad is occupying save the ones with turrets like the Insurgent and Valkyrie. No idea what is causing the issue.

    It doesn't work, it's fake. I follow the steps from video and when I press X or Z nothing happen.
