How to set up custom_maps in dlc_patch for using ymaps step by step by OGSQUAD



  • This is best tutorial I ever saw for right setting up and preparation your game for using ymaps. I'm pretty new in modding and was annoying when more than hour I wasn't able to find so good tutorial as this is (saw it before in map description, but didn't remember which map). That's the reason why I'm rewriting it here (I little bit edited it) to everybody new can easy find it. Tutorial is made by @OGSQUAD . All work is starting in OpenIV of course.

    1. Creating a "custom_maps" folder.

      a. Go to this file location
      

      D : \Games\GTA V\mods\update\x64\dlcpacks\ < (custom_maps folder location)

      b. In "Edit mode", create a folder name "custom_maps"
      
      c. Go into the folder and inject/paste the "dlc.rpf" file included in the "Install files" folder.
      
      (Folder you can download on @OGSQUAD youtube channel in description of  this video 
      &t=48s
    	d. Once you have injected the "dlc.rpf" file, go to this file location.
    
    > D : \Games\GTAV\mods\update\x64\dlcpacks\custom_maps\dlc.rpf\x64\levels\gta5\_citye\maps\custom_maps.rpf\ < (custom map mod location)
    
    	e. Once here, you can now inlcuded any .ymap files you would like, the "Test map" has the included location for testing.
    
    	Step 1 of 2 complete!
    
    1. Modifying the "dlclist.xml". (Remember to back-up your previous "dlc.rpf". This file is used by most mods)
    
    	a. First go to this file location,
    
    > D : \Games\GTA V\mods\update\update.rpf\common\data < (dlclist.xml location) 
    
    	b. In Open IV activate "Edit mode" and transfer the "dlclist.xml" file to your Desktop, leave Open IV in "Edit mode".
    
    	c. Right click file you transfered to your desktop and "Open with" notepad application.
    
    	d. Scroll to the very bottom and you will see this. (If you have other mods installed there might be added lines already)
    

    ==================================================================
    ===============================*
    Example_
    > ........................... <
    > ........................................ <
    > <Item>dlcpacks:\patchday16ng</Item> <
    > <Item>dlcpacks:\patchday17ng</Item> <
    > <Item>dlcpacks:\patchday18ng</Item> <
    > </Paths> <
    > </SMandatoryPacksData> <
    > <

    =================================================================================================

    	e. Add a new line to the bottom so the notepad looks like this.
    

    =================================================================================================
    Example_
    > ........................... <
    > ........................................ <
    > <Item>dlcpacks:\patchday16ng</Item> <
    > <Item>dlcpacks:\patchday17ng</Item> <
    > <Item>dlcpacks:\patchday18ng</Item> <
    >> <Item>dlcpacks:\custom_maps</Item> <<
    > </Paths> <
    > </SMandatoryPacksData> <
    > <

    =================================================================================================

    	f. Once the notepad is edited, save the file.
    
    	g. Go back into Open IV in "Edit mode" right click on "dlclist.xml" and replace with the "dlclist.xml" on your desktop. (drag and drop works awsell)
    
                h. Exit "Edit mode" and close down Open IV. Load your GTA V and go to the "Test map" Location to make sure it worked. ("Test map" location included in "Install files"
    

    Big thanks to @OGSQUAD for this tutorial and files including testing map!
