=== Installation ===
Copy all *.lua, *.str2_pc, *.asm_pc, and *.le_strings files in the "mod" folder to SRIV's directory. (e.g. C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\Saints Row IV)

Then, copy and overwrite patch_compressed.vpp_pc to SRIV's cache directory. (e.g. C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\Saints Row IV\packfiles\pc\cache)

This mod modifies the following asm_pc files which makes it incompatible by default with most mods.
* patch_vint_doc_containers.asm_pc
* vint_doc_containers.asm_pc
To make this mod usable with other mods, you need to update the asm_pc files after installing this mod.

Download "Minimaul's Saints Row 2, Saints Row: The Third, Saints Row IV and Gat Out Of Hell tools", launch "ThomasJepp.SaintsRow.Stream2Update.exe", and follow the onscreen instructions.

Please note, this mod does NOT modify "stream_grid.asm_pc". All modified mission scripts are loaded from "patch_compressed.vpp_pc".

I've encountered a rather unfortunate limitation: the HUD script (hud.lua in hud.str2_pc) has some sort of file size limitation, and if this limit is exceeded the game fails to load the HUD.
Everything, even comments, counts toward this limit. I will try to workaround this by stripping comments, but I might soon hit the ceiling...

EDIT: The absolute limit of hud.lua is 139,012 bytes. Vanilla's hud.lua is 133,282 bytes, 95.88% of the budget is already used and 5,730 bytes are remaining for additional usage. SuperUI for SRIV v0.1 ALPHA's current hud.lua has 138,019 bytes, 99.29% is already used and only 993 bytes are remaining for any usage.
hud.lua has large amount of commented-out codes and developer's comments so I can remove them to free up some space.

Good Luck!
 
SuperUI for SRIV v0.2 ALPHA released. You can now see the remaining energy of active Buff power.

EDIT:
SuperUI for SRIV v0.3 ALPHA released. You can now disable forced mission outfits by editing game_lib.lua and setting "SUI_OUTFIT" to false.
sriv_superui_no_forced_outfit.png


I've also added "SUI_EASY_GENERATOR" flag which will make all shield generators in missions go down quickly. (It doesn't affect freeroam generators though)
