I need help lol. I have never owned a pc game, never modded a game before, etc.
I don't currently own GTA V on my pc (using a laptop).
I want to get GTA V, and start to use mods (specifically car mods).
This is going to sound odd but, I don't even really want to do it to enjoy the game itself. I have GTA V on my Xbox and generally play it there. The only reason I want to do this on my laptop is so that I can import real life cars, put them into my garages, and just be able to walk around them and compare them etc. so that I can try and rank them lol. I'm strange I know.
In a way though I suppose that makes things simpler for me than your average gta v mod enthusiast because I don't care to do plenty of other mods, all I want is GTA V with real cars (that I get to pick) in it. Also some sort of unlimited money cheat of course so I don't have to worry about buying these cars.
Can someone please give me some advice? Literally I have zero clue what I'm doing lol. I'm hoping it's not too too complicated, I understand basic computing and programming but not to a crazy extent.
Do I just download GTA V from rockstar? Or do I have to get a special mod-friendly version elsewhere?
Do I need like a mod-installer? Or do I just start downloading mod files and putting them in the game somehow without any installer?
How do I go about installing all of the car's?
How does upgrading cars work? Can I take a real life car mod to los santos customs and paint it? Or do the cars come how they're modded and you can't change them?
How much space does the game + say 200 real car's require? I have about 120 GB space remaining as of right now.
Are viruses ever really a concern with car mods downloaded from this website? I would try to only download the mods with lots of good reviews of course.
Do certain mods like... clash? Or can I just download whatever ones I want?
Is my goal of getting all these real life cars into garages where I can walk up to them and compare them, smarter to attempt in gta online or offline?
Any non-car related mods that are just must-haves? Like things that you would recommend to anyone that's just getting into modding
Sorry for my lack of knowledge in this stuff, I'm trying to learn haha, and thanks in advance
