Grand Theft Auto: Dubai Islands
FIRST PUBLIC BETA RELEASED
GTA: Dubai Islands is a mod for GTA 5 and tranforms a part of ocean near Vespucci Beach with islands inspired by the City of Dubai, including an island based on Palm Jumeirah Island, Dubai. Included with some of the most popular Persian/Arabian Gulf buildings, Dubai Islands offers you all the resorts you ever dreamed of!
This mod contains buildings from:
- United Arab Emirates: Burj Khalifa, Aldar Headquarters, Jumeirah Emirates Towers, Rose Tower, Dubai Mall, Atlantis Hotel, Dubai Media Centre Headquarters. (Burj al-Arab can be downloaded here: https://www.gta5-mods.com/maps/burj-al-arab-hotel-dubai-emissive-add-on-replace) Thanks to [email protected]
- Kingdom Saudi-Arabia: Kingdom Centre
- Kingdom of Bahrain: Bahrain World Trade Center
- State of Kuwait: Kuwait Towers

Burj Khalifa is converted from a GTA IV mod by 'Metalwarz'. Many many thanks to him for the GTA IV version! I only converted that one to GTA V.
Burj al-Arab won't be included in my mod download, you should download it from the link provided above, mod by [email protected] Thanks to him as well!
All feedback and suggestions are welcome (Please only be realistic with suggestions).
After a lot of thoughts and even considering making this mod private or 'VIP', I finally decided to release it for free though, later in 2017, on GTA5-Mods.com. I just considered making this mod 'VIP' for around $2, because I really put a lot of work in it, and it was very time consuming, I need to pay licenses... However, i thought people should get it for free at the end of the day. I want the GTA community to enjoy each others mods, how big or how small they are.
Official first trailer came out NOT on my YouTube channel, but on another one. Here you can watch it. Please ignore the 'funny' intro with the PEGI 18 and stuff
I posted this already on GTA5-mods forums but i didn't receive any suggestions or feedback.
Here some screenshots:
EDIT: NEW SCREENSHOTS FROM SECOND ISLAND
I decided to enlarge this project with a second island with buildings from all over Dubai.
As you can see, most of it still needs to be textured, and props need to be added.
I'm also making Palm Island look better, with more villa models and stuff.
New gameplay video:
Still, a lot of work has to be done, optimizing the models, creating more villa's and props, and assigning textures to new models.
NOTE: I HAVE READ ALL FORUM RULES AND I THINK IT'S OK TO POST THOSE KIND OF MODS IN THIS SECTION.
BECAUSE I PREVIOUSLY HAD TOPICS WHICH GOT DELETED INSTANTLY... BUT THAT WAS BECAUSE I USED MODELS FROM THIRD PARTY GAMES IF I REMEMBER WELL, SUCH AS EA.
