What are GTA V mods?

GTA V mods are modified gameplay files and items that change the way elements work in the game. You can add zombies or new vehicles not available in the original version. 

Once you have the GTA V mod menu on your PC, you can quickly apply the modifications you want before starting the game. Mod developers are from the gaming community who simply want to add more entertainment to the action title.

How to install GTA V mods

Before you can get started on how to mod GTA 5, you need tools and plugins that will let you script the changes you’re looking for. While this process is relatively easy, please make sure you follow it precisely to avoid any problems with launching your game.

Step 1: Install Script Hook V

Script Hool V is a file library that lets developers and gamers create scripts for GTA V’s campaign mode. There’s a Native Trainer and Asi Loader, featuring many cheats not included in the game. 

Follow these steps to install Script Hool V:

  • Download and open the .zip file
  • Copy ScriptHookV.dll to the main folder where your GTA V game is located
  • You’ll need to copy the NativeTrainer.asi and Asi Loader (dsound.dll)  to the same folder.

Step 2: Install the GTA V LUA Plugin

If you want to create custom scripts for GTA V, you’ll need to write it in a language with which it’s familiar. LUA does that for you, making the process much easier.

Heres’s the process for downloading and installing the GTA V LUA Plugin:

  • Download the .zip folder and search for the ‘scripts’ folder, before finding the LUA.asi file
  • Copy these folders and files into the same GTA V folder as before
  • Search for the ‘addins’ folder within the Scripts Folder
  • Copy all the LUA files you download from this point forward.

Step 3: Download and install GTA V mods

You’re all set. From now on, simply download and save the mod files to the same GTA V folder as the plugin and script program above. You’ll be able to see the new features when you enter the GTA V mod menu on PC.
