Hey guys,

how about creating a program like a tool which adds new cars without replacing another?

what will happen if you add to mutch cars will the game crash however this is wounderful news i hope sparkiv adds that function in there program to make adding more simple

yes the game will crash when you add more than 24 Vehicle

Will this be fixed!?

 

Or it has a limited in game?

yes, it's the limit from GTA IV

 

maybe it will be fixed, need to wait till someone make a limit adjuster for GTA IV.

I had success using the recent mod that adds all the Lost and Damned bikes without replacing other vehicles, which also includes a spawn menu, but STILL when adding my own cars, they just don't show up. This "console" thing I've seen a lot of you add, what scripthook are you using to get it? Because I don't see any after pressing ~

 

Also, does your car spawning completely stuff up when you add new vehicles in you cargrp file? I mean, GTA spawning was never any good to start with, but then it got worse when I replaced cars with ones I downloaded, THEN it got even worse when I added new vehicles. Strange thing is, nothing unusual happened (as in spawning) when I added TLAD bikes mod confused.gif

to see the consol you need dotnetscripthook found here

 

if your car didn't spawn, it could be you add the new car in special vehicle(in cargrp)

or it simply something wrong with the car. try using console to spawn your vehicle, so you can determine which is wrong.

Okay thanks, got the right scripthook. Now my next problem, it says "invalid model" when I spawn a car. You type in "spawn vehicle_carname" right?

 

EDIT: My 'newveh' file isn't blue like the rest of the files, could that have something to do with it? Looks like the game is not recognising it.

 

EDIT2: Hmm, SpakIV isn't opening my 'newveh' file.

Could you PLEASE make a video tutorial? blush.gif

 

It's a little bit confusing to understand all the steps confused.gif

 

Please, pal. I'd love to try this out biggrin.gif

 

Oh, and one more thing. Will this end up messing the graphics like replaced cars? I mean, when you replace too many cars, the game will take a lot more time to load the city and the textures (rendering). cryani.gif

 

So, is this having the same effect? dozingoff.gif

 

And someone that already made this and it worked, could you please let me know? sarcasm.gif

 

Thank you sigh.gif

Well... In multiplayer it will only affect what you see.

The steps aren't confusing. Just follow point to point smile.gif

 

You are saying that by adding new cars (or replacing existing ones) the game loads slower?

 

In fact I have experienced that my game loads ALOT quicker by adding mods and cars. Of course there is unstability, but that I can live with, when thinking about how great mods I have installed and how much they enrich the game quality.

^^ i can't make one tounge.gif

too lazy to do so. and i don't have gta intalled now.

what do you mean with texture? only the texture without vehicle?

the 1 step is the important one. you must do it at least once.

 

@psyk

what version of openIV do you use?

to use openIV you just need to drag your vehicle file to new openIV when you make a new img than close openIV.

 

@lukasdk

either your vehicle file is defected or your newimg isn't right.

try this tut from beginning again

 

@Maddest Dog

that's a known error and have been fixed

 

@McLeod63

openIV sometimes make a error img.

i have experience such ting and just make a new img again

You need to have Scripthookdotnet installed, then simply press the ~ button, then type in "spawn vehicle_carname"

The button "~" that many think is to the left from the "1" is often wrong unless you use english keyboard settings in your system.

Try the buttons just next to "O", "L" and "P".

My so called "~" is the "æ" button on my keyboard.

I couldn't figure it out to start with because I tried several things when trying the button left next to number "1".

Maybe HE can't fix it, and we'll need somebody else's help to disable the limit of 24 cars.
