Bullet Impact Euphoria v1.2 by Prof_Farnsworth
A video better showcases what this mod does than screenshots. Here is the link:
Version 1.2 Update: Added .ini file to choose whether condition exists while Niko is in Vehicle, and what speed the vehicle will accelerate.
Version 1.1 Update: Added condition for Niko in vehicle. If shot while in vehicle, there is a chance the vehicle will accelerate uncontrollably for a short time (1.5s)
This mod will give Niko a chance of staggering when shot.
While wearing armor, Niko will stagger less.
Known Bugs: None
INSTALLATION: Make sure your GTA IV is moddable (scripthook.net, asi loader, etc).
Place "Ragdoll_Bullets.net" and "Ragdoll_Bullets.ini" into the "scripts" folder in the root GTA IV directory.
In "Ragdoll_Bullets.ini", set "VehicleHit_Condition" to "1" to enable vehicle acceleration when shot, set to "0" to disable. Set "VehicleHit_Speed" to any float value to set the acceleration speed (default is 4).
Tested on GTA IV version 1.0.7 with Scripthook.net 126.96.36.199, scripthook.dll 0.5.1, and latest xliveless (0.97?)
Many thanks go out to the devs of LCPDFR. Thier Hardcore mode (albeit too much for regular gameplay for me, but great for LCPDFR) gave me the motivation to make my own stagger when shot mod.

It's funny you ask, because I actually tried that mod when I couldn't get this one working, as I already use a couple of Hippie's mods regularly. The main difference is that my mod does not send Niko into ragdoll, only staggers him when shot or hit with melee. This means Niko will not fall to the ground every time he is hit (which the ragdoll mod does, as it triggers ragdoll each time). Also, this mod has a chance of stagger, so Niko will not stagger with each hit, only some.
Cool video mate. Looks like an awesome mod. Just saw your other mod as well; will be sure to check out both. You mentioned the body armor; I reckon it would be cool; if you had the body armor, then you are wearing it, just like you can do in the 'Character Component Mod'.
