Need help installing addon cars

  • Hello all, ok so i have searched hi and low for a straight forward tutorial on how to add a car (for SP) not replace one and openvi is very friggin confusing is there any way i can just use vortex from Nexus or someone give me a literal step by step as if youre talking to an idiot (cause i am) tutorial? cause i have ZERO experience in coding and what not. i did find a tutorial but to no avail so i guess im missing something

  • Hopefully this helps.

    • Make sure you've got ScriptHook installed already (copy ScriptHookV.dll and dinput8.dll to the same folder as GTA5.exe, and NativeTrainer.asi if you want it)
    • Launch OpenIV (assuming you've already selected the right GTA5 folders)
    • Click Tools -> ASI Manager
    • Install both ASI Loader and OpenIV.ASI
    • Copy all your addon cars to Grand Theft Auto V\mods\update\x64\dlcpacks\ so your folder looks kinda like this
    • Back in OpenIV, navigate to `\mods\update\update.rpf\common\data\
    • Click Edit Mode in the top right corner of the program window
    • Scroll down until you find dlclist.xml and right click -> Edit
    • Scroll down to the bottom of the new window, and find the last <Item> tag, and the </Paths> closing tag
    • For each folder/car you added into the dlcpacks folder, add a new <Item> tag, like this <Item>dlcpacks:/ae86/</Item> right before the closing </Paths> tag.
    • Click the </> XML button up at the top to make sure it's all good, and then click Save, and disable Edit mode in OpenIV

    Congrats, your cars are in the game! But note that, as far as I'm aware, this doesn't make the cars spawn in the game randomly. The trainer included with Scripthook should let you spawn in the cars, but I'm not certain as I don't use it. You could install something like Addon Vehicle Spawner, or a trainer like Menyoo or Enhanced Native Trainer to be certain.
