Replacing files in mpchristmas2 as told but changes don't show up in game, also how can I change snowball damage to that of a knife stab

  • Trying to replace the snowball model and in my mods folder it is in the right place but in game it still shows up as the regular snowball. Is there a second location of the snowball location and damage files? Also how do I change the snowball damage to that of a knife stab or something similar to that

  • @Pickles256

    Snowball Model/Texture Location:
    ...\mods\update\x64\dlcpacks\patchday3ng\dlc.rpf\x64\models\cdimages\weapons.rpf\ ('w_ex_snowball.ydr'/'w_ex_snowball_hi.ydr'/'w_ex_snowball.ytd')

    Tip: In OpenIV 'Ctrl+F3' can be used to search for things by name. Search for 'w_ex_snowball.ydr' and 'w_ex_snowball_hi.ydr' & replace the ones you find in the highest patchday##ng folder structure as that will be the ones loaded by the game :thumbsup:

    Snowball Damage:
    I take it you just want increased damage/one hit kill for whatever projectile you are replacing the snowball with?

    If you go to this file:


    Open it & find this:

            <Item type="CAmmoThrownInfo">

    & then (about 11 lines below that) edit & increase this damage line:

              <Damage value="25.000000" />

    to increase the damage of the snowball projectile. Values of ~100+ should be 1 hit kill (with vanilla ped health values).

    Note: There are 2x '<Damage value' lines in 'weaponsnowball.meta'. In your case you just need to edit the one for the ammo, not the weapon. :thumbsup:

    Hope it helps :slight_smile: Give us a shout if you have any trouble anywhere :thumbsup:

  • @a63nt-5m1th That worked perfect thank you! Two more questions for things that are mostly related, is there any way to get melee enemies to not run away when you point a gun at them (t can be done with map editor somehow with the nightstick cops here (https://www.gta5-mods.com/maps/kill-the-president-speech)

    Also is it possible to get a npc to throw a snowball at you using map editor? When I give peds snowballs and set them to the angry function they just panic and run away (even if i don't hold a gun)

    Thanks sorry if i'm asking too many questions

  • @Pickles256
    No probs :thumbsup:, unfortunately I don't know much about Map Editor or stopping peds running away :slight_frown:. You'll have to create a new thread & ask the community or contact mod authors (anyone who makes a trainer would be a good place to start for help on the ped issue as most trainers have settings that alter ped behaviour).
    Best of luck :thumbsup:

  • Thank you!
