How to install models (player skins)?
I'm well versed in installing car mods but I haven't been able to install people mods (specifically a new cop uniform). I have followed the instructions on two separate mods for new cops but nothing is changing in the game so I must be doing something wrong.
Example instructions: For Skins : x64e/models/cdimages/componentpeds_s_m_y [Replace cop files with these files]
I replaced the files s_m_y_cop01.ydd .yft .ymt .ytd in openIV but when I spawn this cop in the game it's unchanged. I did manage to get a prop to change (props are in a different folder) but not the person.
Any insights will be appreciated. I use a mod folder. I use Windows 7, latest Rage and LSPDFR plugins along with a host of other police plugins.
try x64w i'm not sure tho
@DannyITR1 Always install mods into your mods folder (assuming you have one)....So in this case you would navigate to mods/x64e/models/cdimages/componentpeds_s_m_y in OpenIV and replace the files there.
Can you link me the mods you are trying to install and I will double check where they go for you
@krissboo any chance you can help me with installing the Robocop mod, please.
The one I am trying to use is here https://www.gta5-mods.com/player/robocop-1987#description_tab
I have followed the instructions and can't get it to work. I have a mods folder which I edit in and as the instructions say do the following
replace all files in x64v.rpf/models/cdimages/streamedpeds_mp.rpf
any help would be much apreciated
@DannyITR1 @mattydexter When you replace any ped files, there are usually duplicate files of the ped in the update dlcpack folders. Within there, you need to go into each folder and make sure that there is not a duplicate file of that ped. If there is, you need to replace it with your files you intend to replace it with.
The game will not use the replaced files until you replace every single dupcliate file of that Ped.
Also Matt, you can actually install that robocop ped as addon to make life easier if you wish.
