Well, we probably all saw it coming. Once the designers figured out how to turn almost any animal or NPC model into a computer version of Red Dead Redemption 2, it was only a matter of time before anyone found models with no clothes in the game – and it looks like I'm that person. Sorry to everyone.
This article is NSFW (obviously), with some spoilers.
Lenny's Coaching Manager, released by the LMS on the Mod Red Dead website, allows players to edit text in an INI file to easily swap between in-game models. The total list of models given on the website extends to thousands – and while some are obvious from their names, many still remain unexplored. So with a glass of Gin in hand and a monitor list, I tried some promising things last night.
As for the names, "U_F_M_RhdNudeWoman_01" is a bit of a gift, and surprisingly using this model brings you a woman in the pan. Assuming Red stands for Rhodes, she should probably be from town, though I have no memory of seeing her there. It does seem like a pretty liberating way to explore the countryside, though researching Grizzly like it might wake up.
Something harder to find was the dude in his birthday suit – and while I still haven't found a male model at the breweries, I found something equally fun. A man with pants around his ankles – and better yet, the model bears the name "U_M_M_ValPoopingMan_01".
After looking at it later, it seems to be a Valentine's Day event where Arthur accidentally interrupts a man's toilet break – though you really can't see much, since it's a scripted event. Someone clearly went in to try to model a penis, however.
While Red Dead Redemption 2 is rated 18+, you rarely see naked characters in the game. During a drunken night, you might see a couple pamper him (which is probably why a cruel female model exists), while players have also spotted occasional events such as a man who is weak, immersing in a lake, or a feral "wolf" man. "He walks through the woods.
Red Dead Redemption 2 players have previously been able to modify the PS4 version to strip off the main character (or by firing a bathtub), but using Lenny's Simple Trainer makes the process much easier and also allows the player to play as a naked woman – or as a man with a dong – for the first time (Arthur is modeled with a smooth groin).
The fun and games do not stop with the models of riots, however, there are many other tricky things to try. One of these is the robot from the site of Marko Dragic, who surprisingly works as a model player (besides jumping – maybe too heavy on the robot). I also managed to play like a vampire, and effectively zombies by resuscitating the game's body models. The regular carcass has a spoiled effect, while cholera seems to provide a more bluish hue – but both have glossy yellowish-green eyes. Disgusting
If you want to try the mode for yourself, first make sure you back up your game files and disable auto-recordings in your game. It is worth noting that you should also not use this mode when playing Red Dead Online, as this may result in a ban. They need to paste all the files into the Red Dead Redemption 2 root directory (where the game is installed), then modify the Ist.ini file to insert model names from this list. Then, all you need to do is hold the F7 to swap between the selected character models – and you can edit the Ist.ini file while the game is running to add more.
The latest version of Lenny's simple trainer also allows players to access any of the weapons on this list or teleport to the locations listed here – including Guarma and some locations off the map. Unfortunately, there is not much to see in these, but researching how to construct the edge of the world is interesting from a game design perspective. Again, all you have to do is paste the relevant information into the Ist.ini file, and then hold the appropriate key.
In the meantime, maybe the funniest I've ever had (aside drinking like a snake and learn about hidden characters in the files) flying a dove around St. Danny – a surprisingly difficult thing to do given the size of the dove and the speed at which it flies. Try not to smear the bulb.
