Scenario.dat is found at the folder common/data/ of Grand Theft Auto IV's path. This file can be opened with any text editor. This file appears to contain all the actions that happens ramdonly in the city, such as Police's checking random vehicles, people fixing their vehicles or security guards on club's doors.

Structure

The scenario file is divided in two sections: Seated scenarios and vehicle scenarios, vehicle scenarios need to be spawned with vehicles. They all have the same structure: ScenarioName Argument1 Argument2...

Scenarioname
unique scenario name (for example: Seat_InternetCafe)
StartEnd(time1, time2)
scenario will only be spawned between these times
Prob(prob)
Probability between 0 and 1 that this scenario is spawned each time the point is evaluated
Task(task)
the task that will be run with this scenario, can be of:
Stationary stands still and plays anims
MoveBetween(time) moves between nearby points playing anims, stands statinory for a max of time seconds
Group Spawns on the point but also spawns other peds around in conversation
Seated Spawns the ped sitting down
Wandering The ped wanders as normal, playing anims
MaxInRange( maxNo, range )
will limit the number of peds in this scenario to maxno within range metres, so if range were 10, even if 100 points were within a 10m radius only Maxno would spawn
Offset(x,y,z)
additional offset for specific seating anims that differ from the placement node (steps and walls)
WillAttractPeds
