Problems installing custom maps/ymap

  • I am having trouble using custom ymap mods with GTA V. It is my first time trying to install these, and I can’t seem to get it working no matter what I do.

    I have updated all my mods since the casino update. I also have an updated customised gameconfig installed through OpenIV.

    Everything has been set up according to the custom maps installation instructions (to my knowledge anyway). I have arranged the directory under custom_maps in the DLC packs folder. I have then added <Item>dlcpacks:/custom_maps/</Item> to the dlclist.xml. I have other mods (such as add on peds and vehicles) installed very similarly that are working with no problems. However, with this, I am consistently getting the message “GTA V has exited unexpectedly” without an error warning, straight from the loading screen.

    It is a very similar error to what I had before using an updated gameconfig after the most recent update. This considered, I have looked into editing the gamconfig, but have no idea what I’m doing and can’t find anything online to help me properly understand it. I am currently using this one: https://www.gta5-mods.com/misc/gta-5-gameconfig-300-cars (x3 vehicles and peds). I have tried others, but still have the same problem with the game giving up on startup.

    I perhaps thought the map I was using was problematic, and have tried removing it and loading different ymaps instead. I still have the same result. I also thought I may have had too many mods for my game to handle. So, I removed all mods from the dlclist.xml apart from the custom_maps line, and the same things still happens.

    Any suggestions? Or has anyone had similar problems? I usually end up figuring this stuff out myself, but I am baffled with this.

  • @corvus1322 Your dlclist entry is incorrect, missing the slash after the mod name. Should look like this ...<Item>dlcpacks:/custom_maps/</Item>

    All of the entries you add to the dlclist.xml should be in that format.

  • @chonkie Sorry, that's actually a typo. I've put it as you have in my dlclist.xml and it's still not working. Cheers for pointing that out though.

  • try downloading heaplimit adjuster and packfile limit adjuster, they’re both available on this website

  • @Reacon Thanks, but I already have both of these. It still crashes.
