NymphantTree's Mod List


Recommended Posts

Look, I'm sorry I have seen multiple people say this isn't the right spot to put mod lists, but I looked around and found nothing close to a session that is for posting mod lists besides this area. I hope it's not actually really obvious and I am just an idiot XD


Anyways, since san andreas is free on the rockstar website or whatever, I assume a lot of people will be coming to the forums, so instead of finishing my mod search and then posting the mods I use here, I will just post my mod list right now and then update it from time to time.


Game functionality re-haul: Basically changes the game to the core, or adds support for more complex mods to be added.


Downgrading takes the game to the original version, so you have all the songs as rockstar removed stuff, and general mod compatibility:


ASI Loader allows .asi file compatibility also has silent patch: https://cookieplmonster.github.io/mods/gta-sa/
I think this needed updates


CLEO adds scripting ability to san andreas for better mods: https://cleo.li


Modloader allows you to not destroy the game files and also lets you add/drop mods in game:


remastered Gui:


Project 2DFX allows more draw distance and other graphical effects: https://thirteenag.github.io/p2dfx


13AG+Wesser Widescreen Fixes:



SkyGFX: restores weather from console to PC:


Silent Patch: Silent patch is a mod that fixes a lot of stuff, basically an unofficial patch when the developers are too lazy or don't care (cared enough to remove songs it seems).




Controller Support: I like playing GTA San Andreas with a controller so personally these are a must have


To get the controller to work properly with San Andreas, you need GInput: https://cookieplmonster.github.io/mods/gta-sa/


Amazing guide for controller mod: https://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=620984448


Good xbox controller emulator so your playstation controller works on windows 10: https://www.x360ce.com/


General quality of life improvement or game mechanics remastering, etc: Mods that really affect the game a lot to make it feels a lot different.


SannyBuilder to see and edit .cs files: https://sannybuilder.com/downloads.html


Rosa projet to replace all textures to higher quality: https://www.mixmods.com.br/2016/01/rosa-project-todas-as-versoes.html


Behind space of realities for better trees and grass etc:

Grass must be placed manually, not modloader.
Remove russian letters in file names.
Delete the test files as those place a giant square of trees near the docks and airports.


insanity vegetation for better trees for backup(At least I heard some trees don't change from just BSOR): https://www.gtainside.com/en/sanandreas/mods/91228-insanity-vegetation/ 


Other side of fence for less intensive grass:



Detailed map and radar mod so you can see the map better: https://gamemodding.com/en/gta-san-andreas/maps/14274-detailed-map-and-radar-mod.html


new weapons pack to polish the weapon skins for most guns: https://www.gtaall.com/gta-san-andreas/weapons/15673-new-weapons-pack.html


Insanity audio for that good audio goodness: https://gamebanana.com/sounds/download/37649


San Andreas ambient sounds for good noise all around:


Super fast map teleport, really good for testing mods in different areas: https://gamemodding.com/en/gta-san-andreas/cleo-scripts/77094-super-fast-teleporter.html


ImprovedVehicleFeatures for foglights etc:


Makes all the original vehicles adapted to ImVehFt:


IMFX mod to boost effects:


Overdose effects for better effects: https://www.gtagarage.com/mods/show.php?id=9226


Insects mod for 3-4 bugs around the world for immersion: https://libertycity.net/files/gta-san-andreas/98102-insects-mod.html


Project Overhaul for even more boosts to effects and stuff:



FlyingStuff for debris and rare dragonfly: https://libertycity.net/files/gta-san-andreas/112562-flyingstuff-effect-loader.html


Extended gang wars:



No forbidden paths so npcs are everywhere: https://www.gtagarage.com/mods/show.php?id=26549


Pedestrian tweaks for crackheads, hobos, pimps, etc.:



MixMods MixSets for lots of fixes and nice tweaks: https://www.mixmods.com.br/2015/12/mod-mix-sets.html
(I am still looking through this mod to see all the tweaks and what not).


Fun: This will just be random mods to make some changes that I think would be nice. Probably reskins of bigsmoke and pals, or mods that only change a few things or not good enough, etc.


Feral Street dogs: https://www.nexusmods.com/gtasanandreas/mods/2413


The Birds Update for high quality birds:



All rare vehicles spawn in traffic: https://steamcommunity.com/app/12120/discussions/0/1694917906657518271/


Mods I am trying to look for but can't find: Maybe these mods don't exist, hard to find, or ones that I can find but don't work or are old and outdated.


If you know mods similar to these please let me know so I can decide if I want to add them or not.


  • Prisoners escaped for police chases and randomly fighting police out of nowhere, usually shooting either people or cops, might be a nice diversion?
  • Random mass shooter, just for more random chaos, and if I am dealing with cops they might take on a few for me, or attack me, so you never know what will hapen.
  • Gangs fight each other by invading areas (take over each other's turf perhaps?), attack cops on sight or at the very least don't always target CJ when cops are nearby, random drive-bys on either citizens, cops, or CJ.
  • Animals, just all around. A lot rarer in cities but maybe dogs and cats or whatever, for aesthetics and maybe sometimes they attack people to make fights really interesting. More threats in the wild as well as making the wild more lively. 
  • Entire game retextured (Since it seems like every single retexture mod has not completed the full map). I might look for retexture mods of every main area invidiually, like the three cities and then forest or whatever. Both and HD and a lower quality version as I might not be able to handle extreme graphics. 
  • Air traffic, such as the ability to have more airplanes spawn above me. I know you can try to change how many cars you spawn in the main game files (I tried but that failed as well, but MixSets seems to MOSTLY work for that), but I want to be able to have planes spawn 10 times as much so 1, the sky looks more alive, and 2, so there are more plane crashes. I would also like to make it so I see planes either come from farther distances or go away at longer distances, and maybe don't spawn directly above me in terms of line of fire. 
  • So far mixsets SEEMS to allow me to have more NPCs and cars, although I think if I blow up a lot of cars on the freeway, around 20 or 30, then even when I have max cars set to 200 and density 10, the cars stop spawning, so maybe any other mods for insane car spawns or cars to keep spawning after a pile of blown up cars is made.
  • Gangs have a special person spawn rarely that is quite a big stronger than most others, like a warlord or enforcer or whatever, just a random gang boss that puts up more of a fight so the game gets more interesting from time to time.
