How to install: (Text version)
1. Download a map mod you like (Links below)
2. Open the downloaded file using 7Zip or WinRaR
3. Open up your GTA IV/EFLC main folder and locate the folder called 'pc'
4. Open 'data' then 'maps'
5. Drag or Extract the map folder from your downloaded map file which is opened with 7Zip or WinRaR
6. Open up your GTA IV/GTA EFLC main folder and open up the folder called 'common'
7. Open up 'data' folder
8. Locate files, gta.dat and images.txt, open them in Notepad

NOTE! NOTE!
Some of the map mods may cause crashes, texture loss or that your game won't start, when you notice that some of these 3 things happen, remove the folder from pc, data, maps and remove the lines you've added to gta.dat & images.txt.
Or just reinstall your game.

Some of the map mods may cause your game to start crashing, when you notice that your game wont start or it crashes when youve loaded the game, do the same when you were installing the map, remove the files you added and remove the lines you added to gta.dat & images.txt.

If you have any queston PM me on YouTube or ask it in the comments section below.
