Fixing cars with no LODs (fix for disappearing cars when distant)



  • This is something I've been doing for a while with cars that disappear in the distance, and it works for me, so I thought I'd share it with you.

    1. Locate the vehicles.meta file that contains data with the problematic vehicle. (There are many vehicles.meta files within the game, I haven't found a complete list about which file contains which vehicles' settings, but searching on google was always a success). They are always in ...\common\data\levels\gta5. I might make that list myself.

    2. Export (drag to desktop) the vehicles.meta file you want to edit (or just use OpenIV's editor by right-clicking on it, I prefer Notepad++). After exporting, open it with the text editor of your preference.

    3. Search for the model's settings using ctrl+f. It always starts with <modelName>(model's name)</modelName>. If you're looking for blista, it's going to be <modelName>blista</modelName>.

    4. Scroll down a bit (54 lines to be exact) until you find the line starting with "<lodDistances". Under that line there are a few (6) numbers which you'll edit.

    5. Replace the numbers. I usually change them to:
      350.000000
      350.000000
      350.000000
      350.000000
      350.000000
      350.000000

    You could change them to whatever high number you want though, changing all to 500.000000 worked as well.

    1. Save the vehicles.meta, then import it back to the folder where it came from using OpenIV. I assume you know how to do that since you already managed to install a car mod.

    That's it, hope it was helpful! I know it's a sneaky way to ask, but check out my channel if you feel like it. I upload GTA V content, mainly mod showcases, I'm doing it for fun and to improve my editing skills.

    300.000000
    400.000000

  • Yeah I guess that works too! I never went lower as I never had any problems with those settings. :)
