Modding and GTA Online
I was modding my GTA SP before update and it was running great, I was running like 17 mods at the same time. After update, I get my backup file back into steam folder and verified the game cache, so I now have an updated game and also made a new backup from it. I created online character recently just for racing and deadmatch. I play it sometimes, but I still want to play modded SP game, just for fun.
So my question is: If I put all my mods files precisely only to 'Mods' folder, so they will not be anywhere else except this one folder, do I get banned in GTA Online?
Thank you for your help.
Your best bet is multiple GTAV folders. One for mods and one strictly for GTAO and name them as such and just rename when you want a specific one.
- Grand Theft Auto V_Mods
- Grand Theft Auto V_LSPDFR
- Grand Theft Auto V_Online
Then just remove everything after the V for the version you want to play, and put it back when you're switching them over to the other folder. This way you know which is which
Yeah, I believe it is most safest way, but my hard drive says no to this thing, cause it is extra 90GB of space . But thank you for response. So u don't know if a "Mods" folder made in Open IV is 100% safe, in terms of logging into online? I don't want to use any mods in online. But I don't want to get banned for loading mods in online by an accident, because GTA Online loaded some files from "Mods" folder....
Okay. Online loading takes too long, or even there are infinite loading screens after some activities. World looks like sh**, and there is very poor performance for me. These things changed my mind, so I will stick with SP.
If you have Script Hook V installed you won't accidentally load online. SHV won't allow you to go online.
