This mod edits the default pedpersonality.dat file, setting every pedestrian's "Defense" stat to 40% of it's original value. This results in the ped being able to take almost as much damage as the player.
Ex.: Niko can take twelve shots from a pistol, a ped can take around twelve shots from a pistol as well.
Originally I had every ped's "Defense" stat set to 0.4. I decided this was rather silly making every ped as tough as the other, and the default stats are nothing like that. So I found 40% much more suitable.
This has been tested in IV and EFLC. Remember to backup your default pedpersonality.dat files. Also keep in mind that for EFLC you must replace three different files, since two are for the new peds added in The Lost and Damned and The Ballad of Gay Tony. Installation steps are in the Readme.txt file.
I recommend using MattyDienhoff's Weapon Realism Mod mod with this.
If you find any problems with this please let me know.
