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.

0.7 - 0.8 - 0.8b - 0.8.1 - 0.9.5

0.9.5 to 1.0
  • Added some DLC vehicles (armored baller, turreted limo armored schafter)
  • Added custom vehicles to the .ini configuration file.
  • Added new control: shift + click on the ground will make your squad move there ignoring enemy fire.
  • Added "on foot" option for "Vehicles".
  • Fixed SPACE leaving the player in an endless task of getting into a vehicle it can't (it will not teleport inside after a timeout)
  • Improved Heli landing AI & other orders

0.9 to 0.9.5
  • Fixed Squads 3 and 4 not using helicopter weapons.
  • Fixed units from the NoOSE mod shooting your units.
  • Added the M4 Carbine.

0.8.1 to 0.9
  • Changed Orders mode key from C to ALT.
  • Added the two remaining squads, you can control a total of four now.
  • Massive improvements on the driving AI.
  • Driving Styles now apply inmediately
  • Improved Heli AI: any heli escorting you will engage enemies AND come back to escort you when they're finished.
  • Improved Heli AI: They actually use the helicopters weapons now!
  • Improved AI in combat: While the squad is in combat, "Run there" becomes "Attack this area". The Squad will engage all enemies near the position, then run there.
  • When entering orders mode or the menu, time will slowdown if you or any squad is in combat.
  • Fixed an issue when calling All Squads while having some squads already present.

0.8b to 0.8.1
  • Added some Racing options, so you can race your Squad if you want. (I personally had so much fun with it)
  • Squad GodMode now also applies to their current vehicle, even if they're not in it.
  • Some menu recoloring.

0.8 to 0.8b
  • Fixed the Cargobob attach/detach not working.
  • Fixed orders applying twice.
  • Added the Stun Gun to the secondary weapons list.

0.7 to 0.8
  • Added support for Gang Wars, NOoSE mod and Battleground: Armored Packs. This means that your squad will hate the mods' enemies and like the mods' allies, allowing you to use them in these mods without issues.
  • Added "Re-call when defeated" option.
  • Added a "Dispatch to Waypoint" option.
  • Added a new set of options regarding Squad relationships.
  • Added another set of options to apply orders to ALL squads at once.
    I'll fill this new menu with more orders in the next update.
  • Fixed some typos.

0.6b to 0.7
  • Added two custom Squad Model Lists, so you can have all these custom squads you want by editing the .ini file. By default, these lists have some Mexicans and the Freemode peds.
  • Fixed an issue where you couldn't get into a Squad vehicle if there were more vehicles nearby.
  • Added GodMode for both Squads.
  • Added options to make the Squads hate each other and/or you.
  • A tweaks regarding Driver AI, the Driving Styles now control speed when driving to close places and how the driver reacts to peds/objects/vehicles.
  • Tweaked the SlowTime feature, check the .ini for details.

    I managed to get it working for me yesterday, and I fixed it by;
    Downgrading GTA V to 1.0.994.
    Install all the requirements
    Install the mod.
    When starting GTA V, turn off your internet to prevent updating.
    Make sure you name the scripts folder scripts and nothing else. I accidentely named it script and thus it didn't work.

    @ym121 -- Are you using Bilago's Mod Manager by any chance? If so, be aware that the Folder Mode with that doesn't create the "/scripts" folders (that this mod and most others need to go into), so you'd have to manually arrange that within the Mod Manager.

    IF THAT IS NOT THE CASE, then you just need to make sure that you meet all the listed requirements of this mod (and/or any others), make sure you're following the installation procedures and dropping these files where they belong.

    Failing either of those cases, be sure that if you have altered the config files (to customize models or cars etc) that everything is listed correctly and there are no errors, bad models, etc.

    I mention all these things because they are all issues I've recently had with this mod and others, being a neglectful and impatient newb after a GTAV modding hiatus =P Hope some of the info helps you (or others!). Otherwise, good luck!!

    @Eddlm -- Man, this mod is fantastic. Easily one of my Must Haves. Question though: Would it be possible for you to add more than two customizations in the ini? There are so many great vehicles now that it'd be fun to be able to custom add them to the ini. Regardless, this is easily a 5 star mod, so I thank you for your time and effort in it's design and generosity in sharing it!

    I'd like to chime in and let people know that this mod works fine with the current GTA V release as of the date of this comment. If you're having trouble, you need to go over all of your requirements carefully and verify that everything is in order.
