@ReNNie Success! I needed to create a manifest.ymf and it is now added to my game (without collision, but I'll figure that out). Thanks for all your help.

RE: Help editing Gameconfig.xml
@ReNNie Ok, so I gave this a go with Jrod's garages. The game started up without crashing, and the mod works. So I thought you must've been onto something.
I then put the original ymap I am try to load back into the file and the game started up, but I just can't see it. Seeing as I made it and it's my first, I may have done something wrong. But for some reason now, since I've turned my PC back on, GTA V is suddenly starting - I don't know why.
I'm stumped, but I can't say I'm unhappy.
RE: Help editing Gameconfig.xml
@ReNNie I experimented with the values you listed, and also had a look at Delapidated's gameconfig.xml for more I could change. All I have tried so far has failed.
Having looked at Delapidated's gameconfig.xml, I have noticed his numbers are quite high. And I've read somewhere not to make gameconfig numbers too high, so I don't want to go too much higher than his. This leads me to thinking my issue might not be with gameconfig at all (although I will not completely rule it out yet).
Thanks again. Please let me know if anything else comes to mind..
Help editing Gameconfig.xml
I'm looking for some help modifying Gameconfig.xml, as I am having trouble getting custom maps/ymaps to work (they are crashing the game on startup, as per this troubleshooting post - https://forums.gta5-mods.com/topic/25184/problems-installing-custom-maps-ymap).
I am searching online and finding plenty of information about what values to alter to add more vehicles (and even peds). I am finding nothing ymap-related though. Does anyone have any idea what numbers I may need to change to prevent my crashing issue?
Problems installing custom maps/ymap
I am having trouble using custom ymap mods with GTA V. It is my first time trying to install these, and I can’t seem to get it working no matter what I do.
I have updated all my mods since the casino update. I also have an updated customised gameconfig installed through OpenIV.
Everything has been set up according to the custom maps installation instructions (to my knowledge anyway). I have arranged the directory under custom_maps in the DLC packs folder. I have then added <Item>dlcpacks:/custom_maps/</Item> to the dlclist.xml. I have other mods (such as add on peds and vehicles) installed very similarly that are working with no problems. However, with this, I am consistently getting the message “GTA V has exited unexpectedly” without an error warning, straight from the loading screen.
It is a very similar error to what I had before using an updated gameconfig after the most recent update. This considered, I have looked into editing the gamconfig, but have no idea what I’m doing and can’t find anything online to help me properly understand it. I am currently using this one: https://www.gta5-mods.com/misc/gta-5-gameconfig-300-cars (x3 vehicles and peds). I have tried others, but still have the same problem with the game giving up on startup.
I perhaps thought the map I was using was problematic, and have tried removing it and loading different ymaps instead. I still have the same result. I also thought I may have had too many mods for my game to handle. So, I removed all mods from the dlclist.xml apart from the custom_maps line, and the same things still happens.
Any suggestions? Or has anyone had similar problems? I usually end up figuring this stuff out myself, but I am baffled with this.
