AddonPeds simply not working



  • So I went ahead and installed the basic requirements for GTA 5 mods as instructed in the quick-start guide, and it seems to be working just fine. The built-in trainer seems to be working perfectly, I get no errors, etc. I'm running the latest version of GTA V on Steam, alongside with the latest versions of ScriptHookV, OpenIV and ScriptHookVDotNet.

    However, I seem to be struggling in installing/using AddonPeds (the latest version being 3.0.1, as of the day this post was made). It seems that I have installed the mod correctly and followed the Readme by the letter, but custom peds just aren't showing up when I select them with the L key. In fact, even the ones that seem to come with the mod (Superman and the other one which name escapes me) give me the 'etc was not located in ped.rpf). I do use the 'Rebuild' function (running it in admin mode) after adding the files to the folder in question as well.

    I have no idea what I'm doing wrong, as again, I'm following the installation instructions by the letter. I use OpenIV, turn on Edit mode, use 'Add' to place the files from the peds in the correct folder, but it still says the ped in question is missing. Bare in mind I'm completely new to GTA 5 modding. Any help?



  • @camperstrike

    So, you have increased poolsizes on peds in gameconfig?

    Added the Addon peds dlc to dlclist.xml?

    Made sure the names in the external tool to load in DLL and meta XML are the same as inside the rpf (so the model name matches the spawn name) ?

    Make sure you added your new dlclist.xml to the mods folder.

    Also, it's generally not advisable to make external changes to the GTA V dirs while OpenIV is running. I would just close OpenIV, run addonpeds, and reopen OpenIV again to see the results (peds should be there). Then try to spawn them (with the exact same name) in-game.

    By "added the Addon peds dlc to dlclist.xml?", do you mean following this part of the Readme?

    "*Using a text editor, open dlclist.xml and add the following line before the </Paths> line:

    <Item>dlcpacks:\addonpeds</Item>*"

    Yes, I have.

    And no, I haven't made any changes in gameconfig. How would one do that? Do I need to download any external tools?

    And about naming the ped, well I'm not quite sure. I just made a folder with the name of the ped in question in \update\x64\dlcpacks\addonpeds\dlc.rpf\peds.rpf, dropped the ped files inside that folder, and when using AddonPeds Editor v3.0, I gave it the same name as the folder. Bare in mind, I have also already tried dropping the files as they were in \update\x64\dlcpacks\addonpeds\dlc.rpf\peds.rpf without actually creating a folder first, just in case that's actually what you have to do, and that didn't work either.

    Yes, the dlclist.xml file is in the mods folder. Though, should it be in /update/x64/dlcpacks/addonpeds folder, or just in the mods folder in itself?

    It should go where it always goes, in

    mods\update\update.rpf\common\data

    As the original game one is in

    update\update.rpf\common\data

    Any custom gameconfig you may have goes inside said mods data folder too.



  • @meimeiriver said in AddonPeds simply not working:

    I just made a folder with the name of the ped in question in \update\x64\dlcpacks\addonpeds\dlc.rpf\peds.rpf

    And don't do that. Put your mods inside your mods folder, aka

    mods\update\x64\dlcpacks\addonpeds\

    The mods folder is essentially a replica, structure-wise, of your game folders. So, if you needed a modified version of, say, mpapartment, you would copy it into the mods folder too, so as to get:

    mods\update\x64\dlcpacks\mpapartment

    The mods folder is not really an extra folder, but more of an override folder: anything in the mods folder OpenIV treats as overriding what's in the original game folders.



  • But I did... I extracted the ped files to /mods/update/x64/dlcpacks/addonpeds/dlc.rpf/peds.rpf, and they're still not showing up in-game.

    And do you have this extra line in this?

    mods\update\update.rpf\common\data\dlclist.xml

    	<Item>dlcpacks:\addonpeds\</Item>


  • @camperstrike Also, it may be due to forum formatting, but you're missing a backslash:

    <Item>dlcpacks:\addonpeds</Item>

    Right before </Item>



  • good call, fingers crossed



  • It's indeed due to bad forum formatting. This is how my dlclist.xml which is in the mods folder looks like:

    <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>

    <SMandatoryPacksData>
    <Item>dlcpacks:\addonpeds</Item>
    <Paths> (etc. etc.)
