Invalid model ( a true nightmare ) pls help :D
So as the title might suggest I am having a huge problem with a certain add on car which always gives me the most annoying thing I ever saw "Invalid model" when trying to spawn with Simple Trainer.
- I do not have any other addon cars and the mod I am trying to play with is the only one.
- I have edited the dlclist and extratitleupdate as the read me file tells me to and replaced them.
- Other Addon cars worked and even this mod used to work but saddly I can't remember what I changed to make it work in the past, I think it had something to do with the vehicle.meta file or carcols.meta.
If anyone else had a problem with this mod please let me know if you found any solution.
The mod I am trying to install is this one : https://www.gta5-mods.com/vehicles/bugatti-veyron-sang-noir-add-on-autovista
Make sure your 'dlclist.xml' is written in this format:
<item>dlcpacks:\LA_ROADS\</item> <Item>dlcpacks:\EMF\</Item> <Item>dlcpacks:\addoncars\</Item> <Item>dlcpacks:\baba0rum\</Item> <Item>dlcpacks:\mgt\</Item> <Item>dlcpacks:\srt392\</Item> <Item>dlcpacks:\camaro70\</Item> <item>dlcpacks:\veyronsangnoir\</item> </Paths> </SMandatoryPacksData>
ie. with the '<item>dlcpacks:\veyronsangnoir</item>' line somewhere above the '</Paths>' & '</SMandatoryPacksData>' lines.
I installed it & had no problems. The car spawned by name 'veyronsangnoir' without issue. All I did was place veyronsangnoir 'dlc.rpf' here:
& add the '<item>dlcpacks:\veyronsangnoir</item>' line (as above^) into 'dlclist.xml' here:
I didn't edit/alter any other files.
Note: The extratitleupdate info is not needed for the car to function in-game. If you re-download & reinstall the veyronsangnoir dlc (without editing any files in it) you can skip the extratitleupdate part of the instructions & remove it as a variable. Just add the veyronsangnoir dlc folder into your 'dlcpacks' folder & add the veyronsangnoir line to dlclist.xml in 'update.rpf & then test spawning it ingame.
Add the extratitleupdate info after you confirm the car is working if you like but I have never once installed extratitleupdate info, never once needed it & never once had a problem because of it.
You have a working 'mods' folder yeah? With OpenIV.ASI installed? Other 'mods' folder mods are working? Just need to confirm it is functional & that the game is seeing any dlc vehicles installed there.
OpenIV > 'Tools' Tab > ASI Manager > Make sure any asi you are using there is green & says 'installed' Confirm that another 'mods' folder mod is working etc
You don't have any other dlc add-on vehicles installed but do you have other dlc add-on mods? LA Roads, betavegprops etc? How many dlc's in total have you added do you reckon? You can hit the dlc limit with any add-on mod so just want to confirm it's not that. A modded gameconfig may help if that is the case.
Run through that^, see if anything pops out at you & we'll take it from there
Invalid model means somethings up with the vehicles.meta. Check for any errors using notepad++ with the index error finder plugin
