Player dies on rain or water

  • My player dies on rain or water any idea how to fix this?

  • @Stinger321Uhm.....WUT?!?

    Moderator edit: If you have nothing to contribute, don't post.

  • @Stinger321 What mods do you have installed? Also, is your game pirated or legit (from Steam or a retail version)?

  • @Stinger321
    You have Redux installed, correct?
    I've no idea how to fix. I've just heard it mentioned in respect to Redux.


    I'd try switching out the weather.xml file with the one from MVGA to see if it solves the issue

  • @krashadam I have redux 1.5, legit steam game tried to replace rain file but still dies actually all pedestrian under the rain dies if I am under a shade or car I dont die.

  • @ReNNie I switch rain file from the original game but still does it, I’ll try to replace the whole weather file instead and see. Thank you

    @krashadam I have redux 1.5,

    This is probably what's causing it. One of the problems anyway.

  • @krashadam any suggestion on how to fix it? Replaced weather file from mgra but still the same result

  • @Stinger321 Maybe try uninstalling redux...


    That wasn't his question.

    any suggestion on how to fix it?

    It ain't going to be simple. I've only ever been asked about this once before over a year ago. Given that it would have been a different version of Redux & you & the other guy (can't remember who) are about the only people in the world that it seems to have happened to I reason it must be some sort of weird conflict somewhere.
    I made a backup of my 'mods' folder & installed Redux but there were no problems for me so I have no way to diagnose :slight_frown:.
    Note: I never installed Reshade or ENB & although I doubt they would cause this it might be an idea to remove them & see if it does anything? You never know.
    I would also remove all/any scripts you have installed & test that too (move 'scripts' folder somewhere else etc) & try running GTAV without any other software running in the background (especially any monitoring/capture software).
    I've scoured Google etc for info but can't find anything relating to dying in the rain/water unfortunately :slight_frown:.

    Method 01:
    I'd say your best bet is delete your 'mods' folder & start again. Install Redux first, check if happening & if not proceed to install other mods one by one checking the game after each new install. If it happens with just Redux installed proceed to Method 02:/Ideas: below.
    Note: Make a backup of your 'mods' folder at each stage as you progress (SSD's are very helpful here :slight_smile: :thumbsup:) so you can revert easily should the game break at any point :thumbsup:

    Method 02:
    Alternatively, while you still have Redux installed or if it happens with a fresh Redux/'mods' folder you could:

    • Grab a copy of 7Zip & install it
    • Right-click on the 'GTA5_REDUX_V1.5_FULL.oiv' & select '7Zip' > 'Extract to "GTA5_REDUX_V1.5_FULL" '
    • The files contained in 'GTA5_REDUX_V1.5_FULL.oiv' will then be extracted to the 'GTA5_REDUX_V1.5_FULL' folder in the same location as the '.oiv'
    • The extracted 'content' folder contains the files that Redux installed & the 'assembly.xml' will tell you where the Redux files are installed in the game.

    Note: As a general rule do not follow the folder structure in the 'content' folder when installing/looking for files this way. Always follow the paths outlined in the 'assembly.xml' :thumbsup:

    From here it's a process of looking through the 'assembly.xml' to find where the files that Redux installed are in your game & defaulting each file to vanilla one at a time. Loading the game & checking after each default to see if the problem disappears/changes.
    You are probably safe to ignore the '.ytd' files for now (although I have seen textures crash a game. Maybe default 'water.ytd' & 'graphics.ytd' if you like) & concentrate on defaulting the '.xml'/'.meta'/'.dat'/'.ymt' files you find.
    Warning: There are quite a few data files. About 100 in all so it will take a little time.
    If that doesn't fix anything maybe default the sound (.awc) & texture ('.ytd') files also.

    You can probably see now why I went with 'delete your mods folder & start again' as my primary choice of procedure. It's probably a lot less work/simpler.

    As you can hide under things/be in car & survive the death rain it sounds to me like it may have something to do with actually getting wet (ie the wet look fx etc). It might be an idea to have a look though the site & try mods/scripts that change what happens when the player/peds get wet. Say, like this one.
    Also, say you make yourself invulnerable (trainer settings etc). Are you able to survive?
    If you can find a way to survive, it will be invaluable info in solving the issue. Test out everything you can conceive of:

    • Does it happen in all areas of the game? Ocean? Swimming Pool? etc
    • Does it happen at all times? Day & Night?
    • Does anyone (any peds/any characters) ever survive it?
    • Does it instantly kill or remove health & then kill?
    • Do any of these values (in 'w_rain.xml' etc) stop it happening? :
    		<no_weather_fx> 1.0000 1.0000 1.0000 1.0000 1.0000 1.0000 1.0000 1.0000 1.0000 1.0000 1.0000 1.0000 1.0000</no_weather_fx>
    		<no_rain> 1.0000 1.0000 1.0000 1.0000 1.0000 1.0000 1.0000 1.0000 1.0000 1.0000 1.0000 1.0000 1.0000</no_rain>
    		<no_rain_ripples> 1.0000 1.0000 1.0000 1.0000 1.0000 1.0000 1.0000 1.0000 1.0000 1.0000 1.0000 1.0000 1.0000</no_rain_ripples>

    Note: You change them to '1.0000' to stop the effect & also test them individually as it may be informative :thumbsup:. Not what I would call a fix. Just a possible workaround/info gathering.

    • Does wetness from water hydrants/fire truck hose kill?

    • Does water inside buildings kill? Fountains/pools etc if you can find any.

    • Do you die if you are wearing your scuba gear (in game lol)?
      Scuba Gear

    • Does it happen if you get out of the Submarine underwater or only when you resurface etc?

    Try & think of anything you can do with water/wetness & test it out in game. See if you can find anything that changes the outcome :thumbsup:
    Best of luck :thumbsup:

  • Banned


    Your player must be an enderman

    cuz enderman hate water, that's why you die


  • In an alternate reality where people are kind & polite to one another I imagine you said something like this :slight_smile::

    @Killer2000 said in Player dies on rain or water:

    @Stinger321 Enhanced Native Trainer has a 'Deadly Water' option. If you are using Enhanced Native Trainer: Update 39 Bugfix update 1 or later make sure it's not toggled ON.
    You can find the setting in the 'World' menu :thumbsup:

    Remember, ignorance is a choice :wink:

    Well done for finding that anyway :thumbsup: (even if you did miss the opportunity to shine just a little bit of light into your cold... dark... soul lol). Timing of thread matches up to when 'Deadly Water' was added to ENT so looks like a good fit. Good chance they have figured it out but at least tag the op & let him/her know (I'm not sure if the quote tag I used above will notify them or not) :thumbsup:

    I'm Sorry Gentlemen, My Impoliteness is Quite Disturbing, to Say the Least, I will try my best to be a better person when helping other people.

    Thanks For Making Me a Better Person. lol

    "That's very chivalrous of you sir. Being a Gentleman yourself you of course understand that one cannot just stand idly by while one's honour is besmirched with such open disregard. Not without consequence good sir".
    A deathly quiet falls over the room. Onlookers shuffle nervously in their seats as the two men, hands on sabres, size each other up. Finally, the silence is broken.
    "Shall we have some Tea?"
    "Oh, that's a terrific idea. Yes, lets.."

    Refer to @Killer2000's first post further up the page (this one) for a possible fix :thumbsup:

  • @a63nt-5m1th

    Chivalry is an Act that all must Try Hard to accomplish as best as possible so I may think that I did my part, and the tea, I Like it black if possible and that's quite a generous offer that you bestowed upon me, I thank you sincerely.
