The G5BP Mod-List

The following mods need to be installed one by one, in the order they are listed. This is important, as some mods overwrite files from others.

 


Mods 1: Files & Tools
Without these files, GTA 5 will not be able to use mods


Script Hook V + Native Trainer (LINK)
Download the file and unpack into a temporary folder. Then move the content of the "bin" folder into the GTA 5 game folder.

Community Script Hook V .NET
(LINK)
Download the file and unpack into the game folder.

LUA Plugin for Script Hook (LINK)
Download the file and unpack into the game folder.

NativeUI 1.8 (LINK)
Note: Don't use the latest version 1.9.1, as it has some compatibility issues. 1.8 works perfectly.
Download the file and unpack into the "scripts" folder inside the game folder.

OpenIV (LINK)
Download and install the program.
*This will be the primary tool for installing mods. It works like a regular file explorer, except it can read/write inside the GTA 5 file-packages.

OpenIV Setup:

1: Start OpenIV. When it asks for file-path, point to the GTA 5 game folder.

2: When the program has loaded, go to the menu and click "Tools", then "ASI Manager".



3: Install all 3 ASI files

Note: Whenever a file needs to be modified or added, click "Edit mode" or the program will only let you view the files, not modify them.

Mods 2: Traffic


DLC&Add-On Vehicles Spawn on Traffic (LINK)
Download and unpack the file into the game folder.
This will make new cars appear in traffic.

CScenarioPoint Patch (LINK)
Download and unpack the file into the game folder.
*Needed for World of Variety

Simple Trainer for GTA V (LINK)
Download and unpack the file into the game folder.
*Needed for World of Variety

World of Variety (LINK)
Unpack the files into a temporary folder, then open OpenIV and click "Package Installer" from the "Tools" menu.



Navigate to the temporary folder, and click the "wov.oiv" file.
Click Install
When done, delete the temporary folder.

 


Mods 3: Graphics (Part 1)


Make Visuals Great Again (LINK)
*If the site is down, download the file from here instead (LINK)
Download and unpack the files to a temporary folder. Then open OpenIV and click "Package Installer" from the "Tools" menu.
Navigate to the temporary folder, and click the "MAKE VISUALS GREAT AGAIN - 2.65.oiv" file.
Click Install
When done, you can delete the temporary folder.

NOTE: There are plenty other great mods that change the graphics. You can choose any one you like, just only choose one. I recommend MVGA, but choosing the right mod ultimately depends on your personal taste. The four most popular mods are:
Make Visuals Great Again (LINK) *My recommendation
GTA V Redux (LINK)
VisualV (LINK)
NaturalVision Remastered (LINK)

GTA V Redux is the biggest and most popular mod. However, in my opinion, not all of it's changes are for the better. MVGA changes fewer things, but all for the better.. In my opinion.

Better rain & puddles for MVGA (LINK)
Download and unpack the file to a temporary folder. Open OpenIV and click the "Edit mode" button.
Navigate to: "mods/update/update.rpf/common/data".
Right click "visualsettings.dat" and select "Replace". Navigate to the temporary folder and select "visualsettings.dat".
Close OpenIV and delete the temporary folder.

 


Mods 4: Game configuration


M7 More Pedestrians and Cars (LINK)
Download and unpack the file into a temporary folder. Open OpenIV and click the "Edit mode" button.
Navigate to: "mods/update/update.rpf/common/data".
Right click "gameconfig.xml" and select "Replace". Navigate to the temporary folder and select "gameconfig.xml".
Close OpenIV and delete the temporary folder.

*Note: This mod does two things:
1: It will increase the number of pedestrians around the city to about 2.5 times the default, and slightly increase traffic to about 1.5 times. This gives the world a more realistic look, without overcrowding it.
2: It will also make the game ready for adding more vehicle types. Without this mod, the game will become increasingly unstable the more content is added.

*There are two other mods that seeks to do the same thing:
Gameconfig for Limitless Add-On Vehicles (LINK)
Gameconfig for Add-On Crash Fix (LINK)
On my system, my own mod "Game Stability & More Peds" works significantly better than any of those. However, it might be different from system to system, so if for whatever reason "Game Stability & More Peds" does not provide a stable game for you, maybe try one of the other two mods instead.

Time Scaler (LINK)
Download and unpack into the GTA 5 game folder.

Better Time Scaler ini (LINK)
Download and unpack into the GTA 5 game folder. Overwrite.
With this ini file, the in-game menu will work (F6), and it will remember the time-scale next time you load the game.

 


Mods 5: Pedestrians


Hot Coffee (LINK)
Download the file and unpack into the "scripts" folder inside the game folder.
This is the legendary mod from San Andreas that adds interaction between the player and pedestrians. This mod is not essential in any way.

Nude Beach Girls (LINK)
Download and unpack the file to a temporary folder. Open OpenIV, and click the "Edit mode" button.
Navigate to: "mods/common.rpf/data/ai". Add the "ambientpedmodelsets.meta" file, replacing the existing file.

AddonPeds (LINK)
This is a tool for adding new pedestrians to the game instead of replacing the existing ones.
Download the file and unpack into the game folder.
Move the "dlcpacks" folder into "mods\update\x64\dlcpacks\"
Make a desktop shortcut to "AddonPeds Editor.exe".
Open OpenIV, and click the "Edit mode" button.
First navigate to: "mods/update/x64/dlcpacks/addonpeds/dlc.rpf/peds.rpf", and delete all files inside the file. (Unless you actually want those pre-installed characters).
Then navigate to: "mods/update/update.rpf/common/data".
Right click "dlclist.xml" and select "Edit". Now insert the following line: "<Item>dlcpacks:/addonpeds/</Item>". See image.

Ped Spawner
(LINK)
Download the file and unpack into the game folder.
This will make it possible to change the players look in-game.

Mai Shiranui King Of Fighter (LINK)
Download and unpack the file to a temporary folder. Open OpenIV, and click the "Edit mode" button.
Navigate to: "mods/update/x64/dlcpacks/addonpeds/dlc.rpf/peds.rpf".
Click the little green Plus sign. Navigate to the temporary folder and select the "Korean Style Custom" files. Then add the "SNK Shiranui Mai" files as well. I don't recommend adding the "kimono & chinese dress" files, as this dress doesn't really fit the game.
Close OpenIV and delete the temporary folder.



Open the Addon Peds Editor
Click the "Peds" menu, and select "New Ped"



Type in the name, in this case "Mai", and click ""Add Pad". *The name HAS to be the exact same name as the ped files.
*Set "Ped Type" to "Female" and "Is Streamed" to "false". *See image below
Click "New Ped" again, and this time add "MaiS"



Now click "REBUILD" and close the program when done.

Momiji Dead Or Alive 5 (LINK)
Download and unpack the file to a temporary folder. Choose which version you like. I recommend "custom momiji (luxury)" both sets, and "Default Momiji (Normal)" also both sets.
Now rename all files inside the set-folders, so they all have different names. It can be any name, just not the name they already have, as that would replace another pedestrian. Example: Name the files in Set 1 "Momiji", and the files in Set 2 "Momiji_2" and so forth.



Now open the Addon Peds Editor and follow the same procedure as with the previous mod. Add each set, and then Rebuild.

Ada Wong Custom Casual (LINK)

Add the files using Addon Peds Editor.

Mods 7: New Cars


Add-On Vehicle Spawner (LINK)
Download the file and unpack into the game folder.

*There are literally thousands of car mods for GTA 5. (LINK) You can install any you like, just follow the instructions on the page or inside the mod packages.
There are two types of car mods: "Replacers", which will replace a vehicle from the game, and "Add-Ons" which will add a new car to the game. You can install as many replacer cars as you want without problems, but you can only install as many Add-On cars as your system can handle. If you install too many, the game will crash randomly. Personally I don't have the need for an excessive amount of car types, so I never hit that limit.

The following mods are my personal car picks. They are all tested and works perfectly (Provided that you use the "M7 More Pedestrians and Cars" mod):

1970 Pontiac Firebird Add-On (LINK)
Download, unpack and open OpenIV.
1: Copy the folder "
tkmods" into "update/x64/dlcpacks/".
2: Edit "
dlclist.xml". File path: "update/update.rpf/common/data/".
Add the following line: "
<Item>dlcpacks:/tkmods/</Item>".
3: Edit "extratitleupdatedata.meta". File path: "update/update.rpf/common/data/".
Add the following line
s:
<Item type="SExtraTitleUpdateMount">
        <deviceName>dlc_tkmods:/</deviceName>
        <path>update:/dlc_patch/tkmods/</path>
</Item>

4: Find the car model name: View "vehicle.meta" inside the car dlc file. "
update/x64/dlcpacks/tkmods/dlc.rpf". The "vehicle.meta" file can be located different places, but in this case here: *See image



Use the "Search" box and put: "modelName". In this case there are several car model names. Write them all down.



5: Edit "AddedTraffic.xml" with notpad. *
File path: "scripts\" (In the root of the game folder, not in the "mods" folder)
Scroll down to "<Downtown>", and add the
car model name(s) in the same format as the DLC cars already in the file.
In this case, add the following:

<string>spyker</string>
<string>moss</string>
<string>charger</string>
<string>cx75</string>
<string>vulcan</string>
<string>dbs</string>
<string>firebird</string>

*In addition to adding them under "<Downtown>", I would also add them under "<Vinewood>" and "<LosSantos>". You can of course add them to any location you like, but these are the 3 main locations.

BMW I8 AC Schnitzer Add-On (LINK)
Download, unpack and install with OpenIV.
Use "RmodCustoms_BMWI8_1.2.oiv".
