I'm paranoid about getting banned so I want to make sure I am doing things properly before I even start the game up.
I installed OpenIV and then created the mods folder. I copied over updates folder into mods and deleted all dlc content from dlc folder. I then installed package. Bass Dragon's Euphoria Ragdoll Overhaul. I wanted the Gta IV euphoria physics back in the game because it's so much more fun to watch. I did all that according to a youtube video from Dryder Mataroa on youtube.
I haven't seen anywhere what precautions to take though if I want to play online. I have the Steam version of GTA5. Do I just simply choose to play single player and that's that? Do I need to disable the mods folder somehow before going into online? Do I create a copy of the original install folder without the mods folder and start the game from there if I want to play online? I'm not sure what to do after installing the mod to ensure I don't get banned somehow.
