Personal Blog Post: Adding New Cars to GTA IV

As everyone in KT knows I’ve been messing around with GTA IV, modding it, especially surrounding the emergency vehicles, and lighting systems. Lately I’ve been feeling like I want more cars in the game to mess with, and I was trying to find out if it was possible to add NEW cars (since SparkIV only allows you to REPLACE .wft  and .wtd [textures/models] inside of the .img [container for textures/models) files). I stumbled across this little gem. Apperantly adding new cars in inroduces some bugs, such as you not being able to play any mini-games, which is unfortunate (but really, who played those anyways), but I think that the benefits outweigh the losses. I’ll be putting this to the test tomorrow.

I’ve also been trying to replace the car fleet with their real world counterparts, but I’ve struggled to find models that have any kind of deforamation on impact, which personally is a dealbreaker. I have come across one awesome mod though. Some guy came up with script mod to allow you to use put convertible tops on cars up and down (with specific car models that are made to work with his mod). That’s pretty damn cool! I’ll probably make a video about that later.

Since we’re on the topic of GTA IV, here’s a video of Matt being retarded. =)
