Grand Theft Auto V

As impressive as the GTA V game is, you eventually get a bit tired of the monotonous direction of the game. There’s a point beyond which the exploration and mayhem-causing sprees become tedious and routine. Thanks to the FiveM mod, this need not be your story. With FiveM, your GTA V can become an ever-growing source of new prospects and infinite potential. How is that possible, you ask

The FiveM gives you limitless options of customizing and re-structuring the dynamics of your gameplay. You can create, spawn, explore, and experiment on a wide variety of capabilities that the FiveM provides. This means you’re virtually in complete control of the environment, props, equipment, and dynamics of the gameplay at hand. If you’ve ever wondered what absolute customization would look like, FiveM is your answer.

At the centre of these customizations, are the scripts which make everything happen. Some FiveM scripts can be downloaded for free, while others have to be bought. Either way, they can enhance the way you see and experience GTA V.

Here’s how you can get your hands on the right scripts and get them running on your system.

Installing Custom Cars, Weapons, Clothing, Textures & Skins

Step 1: Locate the right script

Finding the right script can be a tricky process if you aren’t sure what you’re looking for. Whichever you choose, make sure you get the latest version. Obsolete files can bring bugs and all sorts of glitches to your game. In any case, it’s always advisable to go for updated and recent versions of any add-ons you choose to download. Once you have identified the right script, you can commence downloading.

Step 2: Move the files to the right location

Once your files are downloaded, you have to transfer them to the resources folder. You can find the resources folder in FiveM server/ CFXserveDataMaster. You have to ensure that they are incorporated in the Command Prompt’s start load. The right files placed in the wrong location will not only confuse you later but prevent the scripts from working.

Step 3: Configure your scripts

Configuring the scripts is arguably the most crucial part of this process. To start with, you’ll need a basic document editing program. Use Notepad ++ for convenience (You can download it if you don’t already have it). Once you access the file, you should find particular text groups that begin with the word ‘start’ (Eg. ‘Start Mapmanager,’ ‘Start FiveM,’ etc.).

Once you find these text groups, go to the last part of the list. Here, you have to add new text groups that begin with the word ‘start’ followed by the name of the script. Once this is done, you can save the files in storage. For example, if the name of the script is ‘God-mode,’ your renamed file should appear as, ‘startGod-mode.’

Step 4: Start the server

As with any other installation, restarting your system and server can give the final shape and function to the new elements. When your server initializes, the new custom scripts should be stacked and functional.

When you see the custom scripts loaded and ready, it means your installation has been made correctly. You can now begin your game and start making use of all the new capabilities in your arsenal.
