Hey everyone, Im completely new to modding gta iv, i got the steam version of gta iv. I found this article, though kind of old for a guide. Should i use this? is it all still relevant to use or is there a better guide here to use instead?

 

http://pc.gamespy.co.../1185388p1.html

 

Also the article says i have to disable games for windows, but that disables online, so to clarify once you mod this game, you cannot use online anymore?

 

I read besides graphical modes, cars, etc there is also mods for actual buildings? So does that mean someone made a building that use to be on the map not enter able but now is? Did people make custom missions that were added to the game as well? If so how would you start a custom mission in game?

 

Finally what are some of the must have mods for me to use?

Hi.

First of all about online,i dont think that modding cause cant going online.

Second,go to your gta iv folder(if it is from steam,it is located in c:\program files or programfilesx86\steam\gtaiv.)]

and start modding(i dont know about steam a lot.But you can try any way:) )

 

 

 

 

Hi friend.first of all,backup your game,then download and install these(in order you should install):

replace these files in that archive to your game root:http://www.mediafire...From_Packet.rar

GTA iv patch 1.0.4.0

SPARK IV

 

then

CAR TUTORIAL:

1:Download a car mod.like that:http://www.gta4-mods...ease-v11-f27524

2:Open vehicles.img in pc\models with SPARK IV.

3:Replace two wft and wtd of mod you have downloaded to this vehicles.img .then save it.

4:Go to data folder.un-check read only section for carcolors.dat,handling.ide and vehicles.ide(it can be done via right click on these files-->propertis)

5:Replace vehicles line with originals.(lines are inculded in readmefile in your downloaded mod)

6:Check the readonly for those files.

And now,its done!!

 

PLAYER TUTORIAL

1:download a player mod.like:http://www.gta4-mods...dier-ped-f27648

do steps 2 just in that case,our archive is player.img then,step 3.

 

MAPS TUTORIAL

1:download a map mod.like:http://www.gta4-mods...ay-alpha-f27665

do steps 2 just in that case,our archive is belong to mod.for example,in a mod's readme says that archive is x.img in pc\models. then,step 3.

Why would you recommend someone who is new to install cars manually? With Vehicle mod installer it's much much easier..

 

Buildings and maps? I don't think that's a good idea, they are usually hard to install and are not that good, for now stick to graphics and car mods, when you're more familiar with modding then you can try weapons, maps, player mods. Mission mods? Dont know, havent tried it. Keep 2 or more game installs, use one to play online and other to mod and play offline. Must have mods? ENB graphics mod and various car replacement mods imo.
