Installing Car mods

  • Hi everyone, i am new to here and very new to the world of modding games. i have modded a touring car game before for car mods but it was just a case of drag and drop so i managed that no problem. for GTA V i am having big problems as i am not very good with computers but i have installed the openiv programme and have an item that allows me to open a menu in game to spawn cars but my questions are, when i follow the instructions of installing cars and go to the game and try spawn them i cannot find them in the list of cars. Is there a way to select from the mods folder to open them? im sorry if this has been covered before but as i said i am a complete novice at modding and digging through files etc.

    Any help appreciated,


    Hi Stuart, did you completely read through Reyser's excellent simple tutorial?

    It looks to me as you've got some reading up to do :)

    In the tool for the ingame menu you've installed to spawn cars etc you will also have refer to the new car name.
    Look for an *.ini it has and learn how to input new cars into it

  • I did read it and to say the least my brain melted, it does seem quite above my ability level and if i mess it up it could go horribly wrong haha. i understand most of it but when it comes to editing codes etc thats where my ability ends. i will stick with it and i might strike gold eventually haha!



    You can hardly mess up if you use the mods folder method.
    All edits you do are then inside that mods folder in the update.rpf.

  • i got as far as the openiv programme and copied the update folder etc as stated but after that when i installed mods into the relevant folders (within the mods folder) nothing worked, i think i need to make the game read from the mods folder that i need to do, thats what im trying to work on now and see if i can get that.


    Okay, good luck! I believe there was an option in OpenIV where you indicate you are using a mods folder?
