how to find the name of the car in handling.meta?

  • Replace Car - How to replace "Lampadati Furore Gt" or "Dewbauchee Massacro"? how to find in handling.meta the name of the car?

  • Banned

    Search handling.meta for the handling id.


    Handling id can be found under miscellaneous information on those links.

    Replacing cars you shouldn't have to replace handling though. Just the model and texture files.

    GTA V has lots of different 'handling.meta' files in different locations throughout the game.

    In OpenIV > Ctrl+F3 > Search for 'handling.meta' & you will see all their locations :thumbsup: (there are a lot)

    Some are duplicates, & in that case the game prioritises which one it loads like this:

    The files in 'update.rpf' 'dlc_patch' folder structure are the highest priority & beat the ones in the 'dlcpacks' folder & the dlcpacks ones in turn beat the ones in 'x64a.rpf > x64w.rpf'

    With that little bit of background info out of the way, you should be able to find the handling lines for those vehicles in one of these locations:



    Check for a 'handling.meta' here first (use it if it exists):
    ...\Grand Theft Auto V\mods\update\update.rpf\dlc_patch\mpbusiness2\common\data\handling.meta

    If no 'handling.meta' there^ check here & use it instead:
    ...\Grand Theft Auto V\mods\x64w.rpf\dlcpacks\mpbusiness2\dlc.rpf\common\data\handling.meta



    Same as previous, check here, use if exist:
    ...\Grand Theft Auto V\mods\update\update.rpf\dlc_patch\mplts\common\data\handling.meta

    If not, use this one instead:
    ...\Grand Theft Auto V\mods\x64w.rpf\dlcpacks\mplts\dlc.rpf\common\data\handling.meta

  • @kyduletz I would just add to a63nt-5m1th clear explanation this:

    Search for the car model first for example massacro.yft, when you do this you see in what locations is a model. In our example it's patchday2, patchday8 and mpbusiness2

    Then search for handling.meta, make the search window wide enough to see whole locations of all search results and look for '...\mpbusiness2...' Open this handling and simply search for 'massacro' here and your handling of the car is starting by

    <Item type="CHandlingData">

    And ending by


    TIP: allways try to search specific car in first 2 results =




    rarely dlc cars are located aswell here (and as he mentioned, this is prioritized one), but 99% are dlc cars not here, only cars located from x64e are mostly in these 2 handlings.
