Sniper Ghost Warrior 3 is a great game with some unfortunate issues, particularly around NPC spawning and despawning. This mod aims to improve these issues as much as possible.

    Mod works fine but the NPC's walk away or just expand theyre patrol routes out of the bases and some npcs like doctor amzri or smth left the base completly and i had to go look for him. Can you fix this?

      That's really not easy to fix because there are hundreds of AI spawn zones and you've only got vague labels to work on. The AI will roam, for better or worse.

    With a name like "Improvement project" you would think the mod would do more than just fix a single NPC issue...
    All the same, good job.

    Could you post an installation guide? I have no idea how to get this working.

      Here:

      Install by placing files into Sniper Ghost Warrior 3/GameSDK folder. Be aware that this mod takes advantage of the fact CryEngine loads files sequentially. When CI Games release the next patch, you'll need a new version of this mod. You'll also need to delete all level.p1.pak files.

      (They're taking their sweet time with the patch, BTW. I've been procrastinating on adding tweaks for the Sabotage DLC because a new patch means I'll have to do it over again.)

      In case any of that is confusing, you basically find SGW3's main folder, find the GameSDK folder, and place Scripts.p6.pak and the Levels folder inside.

        How do I get the Scripts.p6.pak and the Levels folder outside the mod? Right now I can only see the mod as a notepad document and it's all just random symbols

        The mod is listed as a RAR file, should I convert it? Please help I have no idea what's going on.

        Do you not know how to open Winrar files?

        Not even the slightest idea. I don't know what any of this means, I'm just downloading the file and trying to get it to work. It dropped the download into the GameSDK folder but it isn't doing anything. When I download the patch it asks me what app I want to open the file with and the only thing available is notepad.

        Like I already said I haven't a clue what's going on. I've only been playing games on PC for about a month.

        Is there another way? This isn't working for me, seems sketchy

        Winrar's rar archive format is one of the most commonly used archive formats around. The software itself is shareware that basically nobody except companies actually buys. You can alternatively use 7-zip, which is less user friendly but free.

        Okay so now the mod looks like a stack of books thanks to the program. How do I take the Scripts.p6.pak and the Levels folder out of the package or can I just drop the package right into the GameSDK folder?

        You open the archive in WinRar, and then drag the Levels folder and Scripts.p6.pak file out of the Winrar window into the GameSDK folder. Make sure you do both of them. If you're unsure whether the levels files are correctly installed, navigate to GameSDK\Levels\dam_1 and make sure there's a file in there called level.p1.pak (This is the file that overrides the existing level file without overwriting it.) Bear in mind that if you want to uninstall the mod, you need to remove the level.p1.pak files from each mission/level folder. Scripts.p6.pak will likely be forcibly overwritten by the next patch coming next month, but the level files won't.

        It works! You're brilliant!

        What happens if I don't uninstall the mod?
        Can I stop Steam from updating the game?
        Will there be an updated version of the mod?

        Thanks for all your help!

        The problem is that the next patch is introducing multiplayer, and I've got no idea whether mods like this could be a problem whatever anti-cheat solution they go with. I really just have to wait and see. But I am planning on releasing an updated version of the mod if possible, yes.
