No car mod is working

  • Hello,
    I downloaded a fresh GTAV install from the rockstar launcher, installed OpenIV and the required ASI plugins then installed an ASI trainer. All of the above is working.

    However, I'm trying to install a car mod, nothing of which works. I tested this mod - https://www.gta5-mods.com/vehicles/mitsubishi-gto-add-on-fivem-tuning - and installed it as per the readme file but my game crashes just before it reaches single player.

    I've done the following:

    • Only modified the mods folder in OpenIV
    • Edited the dlclist.xml file and removed the patchday28ng and patchday28g9ecng lines, then added the appropriate car mod line
    • Removed the car mod line to check my game still runs, which it does

    I tried another car - https://www.gta5-mods.com/vehicles/honda-civic-type-r-2017-add-on-replace - using the same methods as above, game still crashes

    Any ideas?

    Do you have a modded gameconfig.xml installed? Try that if not. :thumbsup:

    Both vehicle mods have poorly written instructions tbh, if a modded gameconfig doesn't fix it, upload your 'mods' folder 'dlclist.xml' to somewhere like https://app.mediafire.com so I can have a look at it, & also confirm for me that you installed both add-on 'dlc.rpf' files to these exact locations:

    ...\Grand Theft Auto V\mods\update\x64\dlcpacks\gto91\dlc.rpf

    ...\Grand Theft Auto V\mods\update\x64\dlcpacks\hondacivictr\dlc.rpf

    Additionally, both add-ons have artificially bloated file sizes (happens when '.rpf' files are edited repeatedly & a lot).
    I ran OpenIV's defragmentation (highlight any '.rpf' file > Ctrl+Shift+R > '[Defragment]' button) & the overall 'dlc.rpf' file sizes came down from 146MB (gto91) & 42MB (hondacivictr) to 83.8MB & 11MB respectively.
    To defragment correctly you want to move through the 'dlc.rpf' from it's deepest recesses (ie as far into the folder structure as possible) defragmenting each individual '.rpf' you find as you move back out & then finally defragment the 'dlc.rpf' itself. That will result in the true & smallest file size :thumbsup:

    Artificial bloating doesn't usually cause crashes, but you probably want to rule that out. Especially as the file size change is pretty huge (~4x on the civic etc).
