How to convert FIVEM Guns e.g. MarkoMod MK18 to Singleplayer
Hey, Noobster here again.
Wondering how to convert Marko's MK18 which is made for FiveM to singleplayer.
I have a DLCpack for it in single player but I'm just wondering if there's a different way to convert it. Or if I can access it in-game somehow or whatever.
If your goal is to make the gun replace another, then you simply go find the weapon most similar to it and copy the name of it's .ydr and .ytd and place that where the old vanilla model was at. Thats the easier way of having the gun but it sacrifices the weapon you replaced. But it means it'll be easier to access ingame thru game progression or legit ways.
However if your goal is to make it a full addon then you will need to make your own dlc.rpf for it. It's surprisingly simpler than most people think and a lot have done most of the hard work for you. As a matter of fact; if you go check out other addon weapons like

These are all addon weapon mods you could probably use as a guide to see which files are named what and go where (the last two are mine, idk about the others, but you're welcome to gut mine and rename them for other weapons. i wont trip if i see any remaining files.
If you do end up going the addon route, however, you will find it a lot harder to access the weapons in game without a trainer or menu. R* disabled the ability to put addon weapons in ammunation ever since gunrunning (to my knowledge) but if you still wanna tinker with them, You could mess with the global.gxt2 file that handles hesh and all that stuff. But im sure you have simple trainer to use the addon weapons anyway.
'Ppreciate it man. Sorry for the super late reply.
