4) Created new img with Open IV called it newveh.img....

5) Added the car as text.wtd test.wtf (Although i cannot see the car in preview of Spark IV But the img Opens with Open IV without any error) <--- if u think my Img is corrupt could sum1 upload an empty img?? i tried to create it like 10 times but the car doesnt show up in the preview

did you mis type the text.wtd? it supposed to be test.wtd right?

wtd and wtf should have a same name.

 

if the img is good. you should be able to see it using sparkIV.

try replacing first. if it works than this tut should work.

Actually it doesn't matter if it doesn't show up in SparkIV, if you play the game and spawn/find the car, it will be there.

I've had this problem alot of times and the game doesn't have a problem. it doesn't crash my game.

Actually its not quite a problem.

To me its guaranteed it will still work(the mod)

Actually... my game crashes at the loading screen...halfway loading to be exact.......

And apart from that problem.......i dont see anything wrong in my steps.as u can see in those screenshots.......

Everything is perfect ... but it crashes while loading the game

I remember when my game crashed halfway when loading. So i checked every single file i modified, especially the newly added files. So anyway, when i was checking the files, i noticed that in my newveh.ide had a spellng error, like 'vehshare' was 'cehshare'. and some of my files were misspelled, also check for minor mistakes like a comma(,)

 

So check every file i list here, check them all properly........real seriously.

(your new vehicle).img

carcols.dat

cargrp.dat

gta.dat <------must have this line in the end, 'IDE common:/data/newveh.ide'

handling.dat

vehicle.ide

(your new handling file).dat

(your new vehicle).ide

and vehOff.csv <----------just in case if you modified something there

 

If this gets to confusing, i'd start back from the beginning of the modding procedure.

Also what version is your gta4?

hope there aren't any mods or scripts clashing.

I will take a look at the screens.

Anyway, if the mods came with a handling line and other lines, you must check on it then.

 

Why is there a 'script' folder in your X:\Program Files\Rockstar Games\Grand Theft Auto IV\common\data ?

Also, show me what's in your gta4 main folder

So mataajin, is there any research going on about adding more than 24 cars?, It's so weird that when the gta4 makers manage to make 135 diff cars, ther has to be way around this 23 car cap.. Cause I'm getting bored not having our fav cars in the game all at once monocle.gif

nope tounge.gif

i didn't even install GTA IV now.

 

maybe later when a good patch and dlc come to pc smile.gif

 

for the current time,

if you want to have more than 23 new vehicle,

you can replace original vehicle with the one you want.

 

that's the only fix i can give now smile.gif

Friends,

 

@mataanjin : Thank you for this excellent tutorial! It took several tries to get this to work, but finally NEW cars! I'd like to share some things that may help everyone reading this save some time.

 

First: Make sure you have GTAIV.EXE version > 1.0.2.0

Second: Install XLiveless (newest version)

Third: Make doubly sure you don't have any saved NEW cars in your parking areas before adding more vehicles to your new set (newveh.img), otherwise you will get the dreaded SMPA60 error. You can still have any vehicle from the vehicles.img (including replaced ones) in you parking areas, just not from the new set you've created (ex. newveh.img).

 

If you correctly modified your game files, then added more NEW cars and received the SMPA60 error, do this:

 

1. Open your new vehicles .ide file (ex. newveh.ide) and add a # to the line where you added the newest cars (only the newest cars)

2. Open your new vehicles handling file (ex. newhandling.dat) and add a ; to the cars #'ed out above

3. Open carcols.dat file and add a # to the lines of these vehicles

Start the game, remove ANY NEW car(s) you created using this tutorial from your parking areas (citywide).

Open the three files above any remove commenting marks. You should be good to go.

 

Finally: Start out with a few cars at first, then add 3 or 4 at a time and test these cars in game as you add them. I recently downloaded a Nissan Pathfinder that caused the game to crash constantly. But by commenting the three files mentioned above, I successfully isolated the offending model and removed it. But the thing I feel makes the most difference is XLiveless. Even the game seems to run better.

 

Cheers

what is the content of your carcol?

where did you add the new vehicle line?

what is the name of your new vehicle?

the car name is Audi R8, the carcols are same as infernus carcols, IDE and handling line is same as infernus too.

It shouldn't make any difference if you use 1.0.4.0 or 1.0.0.4.

Try it out... smile.gif

Thanks for the relay! Now all the new cars are added perfectly , up to now nothing goes wrong. Thanks you very much indeed! colgate.gif

 

But i got the another small question i cannt figure out is that i added about 20 new cars in the game , but i only can see 4 new cars driving around the city , all the time is the same 4 cars. I am wondering where is other cars gone? All the cars are added in exactly the same way .

 

i think it might to do with the cargrp.dat file , but i dont to how to do it ? what's mean about that file , i mean the position of the cars name in that file.

 

sometimes all the taxi dirving around , it looks .... ph34r.gif , how to fix it ? Many thanks icon14.gificon14.gif

in cargrp, you need to add your new vehicle name, before a group name.

 

and don't add it to a special group(gang, police, etc)
