IMPORTANT INFORMATION

To use this mod without crashing you will need to use the Pawn Grenade
(Nasty Surprise) shortly or immediately after spawning in from the main
menu after executing this mod properly.

If you do this properly, you will be good to use it as often or un-often as you want in that game session.
However, you will have some company at your spawn since you used it.


You will need to repeat this process every time that you save and quit or start the game up!


Pawn Grenade - AI - Vehicle - Chest Spawner


Have you ever wanted to have a personal army to fight for you?
A car where you need it?
Some chests to test some drop rates?
Or simply just want to watch the world burn as everything falls into a chaotic battle between AI?

No problem, this mod does it all!

My Pawn Grenade allows you to have some sort of sandbox mode within Borderlands 2 by utilizing Digistruct technology (not really) to allow you to turn your nearly useless Nasty Surprise into something even more nasty!

This allows you to use your Nasty Surprise for free, in turn it tosses a grenade that then disappears and does nothing! Or does it?

In actuality in creates a magical spawner than then spawns in a group of 4 AI, 4 vehicles, or 4 objects that you chose within the file!

Each Pawn Grenade (Nasty Surprise) has 4 different spawn zones that allows you to choose what spawns from each one separately, based off of most of the loaded AI in each map independently!

You can also choose different allegiances per spawn zone to allow AI battles, an army of allied Skags, or just have them be neutral so that you can start the fight when you are ready!

If you don't feel like using a bunch of free grenades (weirdo) then you can change how many groups of 4 that your single Pawn Grenade can spawn in before it runs out of friendship energy Digistruct energy.

Each Pawn Grenade was fitted with a capacity for 6 groups of 4 (24 spawns) by default. You can request an upgrade quite easily though.

Don't worry, it doesn't expend energy too quickly though. It also realizes when you go to a new map and thus eats the souls energy from the currently created creatures to then be used in the new map, rendering the previous map void of life energy.




Spawning Lootables

If you choose to spawn LWT Loaders in your different spawn zones, you now have the ability to choose through a ridiculously large list of objects (most of which are not loaded) that shall be forcefully strapped to your LWT Loaders so long as the object is loaded!

This ends up panicking the poor loaders and makes them run around with your "LWT" until they become fatigued (yeah, fatigued robots) and stop moving

You then have to figure out a way to loot the stuff from the chest or whatever you strapped on them as they hold it just high enough to ruin your midget dreams.




Spawning Vehicles

You now always have a Monster Truck available to drive in every map, however, you do have to choose that it spawns near the bottom of the file.

I buffed it a little  bit so it is much more crush your enemies with your sheer power  friendly.

What's that, you noticed some other weird thing at the bottom of the file? Oh, how could I forget . .


A Rideable Buttstallion is also always available (replaces Monster Truck if toggled on) to kill your foes with majestic beauty and grace. She really does produce a lot of noises and last I heard, she was fed a feast of explosive bunnies before she went on a trip with you, so watch out!



Important Stuff

This mod will crash your game if you do not use the Pawn Grenade (Nasty Surprise) shortly after spawning in from the main menu after executing it properly.

As long as you use it at least once when you first load in from the main menu, you will be good to use it as often or un-often as you want for that in-game session. If you save and quit or restart, you will have to repeat this process.




TLDR

Customize file (fairly straightforward), execute file, have a Nasty Surprise equipped, load in and use Nasty Surprise fairly quickly to not crash, profit. Can be executed in-game again to apply changes on next map load or you can manually type changes in.




GENERAL OVERVIEW

This mod replaces the Nasty Surprise with the Pawn Grenade, which allows you to create life itself and snuff it out of existence with war.

When you throw the Pawn grenade (Nasty Surprise), it is free to use and will drop down and suddenly disappear, which means it is creating something that will shortly come into existence to either assist you or fight to the death.

Each Pawn Grenade (Nasty Surprise) has 4 spawn points for what you chose to spawn at each zone, per map, in the file. (Fig 1)

You can change the allegiance of each spawn zone separately to allow for AI battles or allied enemies to help you conquer Pandora. (Fig 2)

You can customize how many groups of 4 spawns can occur per Pawn Grenade (Nasty Surprise) from as little as 2 to infinite. (Fig 3)


If you want to spawn in objects or loot chests you will have to enable the spawning of LWT Loaders (Fig 4) and then change their interactive objects which have not been optimized to only be available in certain maps, so you'll have to guess on whether it is loaded or not. (Fig 5)

Said objects are then attached to the top of LWT Loaders and will occasionally run around, so you'll have to chase them down and find out a way to get on top of them (might fix that soon).

This mod is currently meant to spawn stuff that is also loaded for clients so that they don't get overwhelmed by invisible foes or allies.  There are a few exceptions to this such as the Monster Truck and Rideable Buttstallion.  Both of which will not work for clients.


Rideable Buttstallion - this turns the Monster Truck into a rideable Buttstallion which can be used to drive around and blow stuff up in style!
There are some sample videos linked in this file. This does make AI Sawblade Technicals attack you with some crazy stuff though.




Questions & Answers
[Q] How does this work for clients?
[A]
This mod more or less works for clients.
The selected AI to spawn are loaded in their respective maps normally, thus it works for clients.
This also applies to the objects spawned by LWT Loaders but clients will not see the LWT Loaders themselves unless you are in a map that contains them, such as Opportunity.
The Monster Truck will only work in Southern Raceway from the Campaign of Carnage DLC.
Buttstallion will not work for clients whatsoever.  They will likely just see you floating around.
