Last week, I came across Submission Audio's PunkBass (a Kontakt instrument) and I'm floored. It is without a doubt the best bass VI that I know of. This is, IMO, as good as it gets for fake bass. Nothing else comes close in terms of realism or tone.
Don't be put-off if you don't make modern rock, either — a lot of the demos online use use the built-in amps (which are unbelievably good), but you can disable these and just use the raw DI. And it is a damn good sounding DI. Incredibly versatile.
Here's a brief clip of it in action: https%3A//soundcloud.com/tkaitkai/punk-bass-demo
