One of the most outrageous Red Dead Redemption 2 mods just got even stranger with a new update that lets players shrink or grow their character to ridiculous proportions. The mod is currently available on the PC version of Red Dead Redemption 2, which launched early in November.
Red Dead Redemption 2 launched last year on consoles to widespread critical acclaim. While the game was extremely well received, players immediately began asking about one more thing: a Red Dead Redemption 2 PC port. Rockstar Games has a history of bringing its most popular titles to PC, but sometimes only after a considerable delay from their original console release. Fans didn’t have to wait long for Rockstar’s cowboy epic, though, as Red Dead Redemption 2’s PC release was announced just under a year after the game’s launch of console. The PC version of the game brought the experience to a wider audience, enabling better performance for players with more powerful gaming PCs, and perhaps more excitingly, mod support.
Less than a month after its PC release, Red Dead Redemption 2’s mod scene has already taken off. While mods tend to get more ambitious and substantially weirder the longer a game has been out, one popular mod is already turning the wild west into a much different place for some players. Lenny’s Simple Trainer enables a huge number of commands that modify the game, from speeding up time to spawning in NPC bodyguards. Its latest update added a set of new options including calling in an eagle air strike and changing the scale of the player character model.
With the mod installed, players can live out their Ant-Man dreams by shrinking to the size of an insect or growing to the size of a house. If the player is riding a horse at the time, the horse will grow or shrink right along with them. Lenny’s Simple Trainer also lets players change into any other model in the game, meaning they can play as a giant animal if being a giant cowboy somehow gets boring.
As with any mod, it’s best to keep Lenny’s Simple Trainer shenanigans confined to Red Dead Redemption 2’s single-player mode. While Rockstar Games gave a noncommittal answer to whether mods would be allowed in Red Dead Online, the company has taken a firm stance against any mods that significantly change the online experience of its games in the past.
The ability to use mods is one of the most exciting parts of gaming on PC, and seeing how much fun can be had with such a simple change suggests that Red Dead Redemption 2 will look much different when modding really takes off. If Grand Theft Auto V’s chaotic modding scene is any indication, Arthur Morgan is about to see some things he wouldn’t believe.
