Well, in this tutorial you will learn how to add cars in gta iv without overwriting any other original vehicle of the game.

HOW TO ADD (NOT REPLACE) CARS [GTA-IV] ================== Well, in this tutorial you will learn how to add cars in gta iv without overwriting any other original vehicle of the game. TOOLS YOU NEED ------------------ [Open-IV](http://gta4.gamebanana.com/tools/5369 "Open-Iv") [Adding cars files](http://gta4.gamebanana.com/gamefiles/3426 "Adding cars files") HOW TO INSTALL ================== 1: After you have done the downloads of applications programs, extract all the files except "added_vehicles.IMG "to the data folder "(common/data)" 2: did it open the program '' OPEN-IV '' and click on the folder "models" and then on folder "cdimages" and then activate the "Editmode property" in the top tab.IMAGE 1 3: Extract the file "added_vehicles.IMG"to your desktop, then on the" Open-iv "click the EDIT option, and then click ADD, then browse to and add the file" added_vehicles.IMG ". Now you already have the mod installed, the next step is adding your custom skins (downloaded from the internet). ADDING YOUR'S CUSTOM CAR SKINS: ================== Let's see, you already have your car downloaded right? okay, typically in ZIP files comes 3 files: the template file "carname.wtf", "carname.wtd" texture file and the Readme file that contains images as information Handling and vehicles that define the mass, class, sound and etc. You will have to use a custom name for your car, which would not be the names of the original cars game, as this could be a problem at the time of spawning. If your car is downloaded the name as an example turismo.wtf and turismo.wtd in the case if it were a Lamborghini you could rename the filenames for the actual name of the car would be downloaded, and Lamborghini.wtf and Lamborghini.wtd Now you will have to add the files ". wtf e. wtd car" in the file "added_vehicles.IMG " Err ... assuming I downloaded the Lamborghini and already have the names renamed (Lamborghini.wtf and Lamborghini.wtd) now just go in Open-top IV tab and look for the option "add new files" being represented with a + symbol, made it look for the two files, in my case (Lamborghini.wtf and Lamborghini.wtd) and add them. Okay, now you've got your car added to the .img file, now you have to configure the car editing the files "added_vehicles_handling" and "added_vehicles".(common/data). Adding the information Handling and Vehicles ================== Now open the read me file that came along to the archives of the car and look for the Handling and Vehicle lines, in my case would be: Vehicle: turismo, turismo, car, TURISMO, TURISMO, VEH@LOW, VEH@LOW_LE1_RI1, 50, 999, 0.2667, 0.2667, 0, 5, 1.0 ,0, noboot+sports+ext_gang+ext_rare Handling:TURISMO 1500.0 7.0 85 0.0 -0.06 -0.18 0.0 5 0.23 1.0 160.0 0.34 0.65 0.7 35.0 1.50 1.25 13.5 0.12 0.48 2.0 1.3 1.3 0.12 -0.13 0.0 0.5 1.0 1.0 0.7 1.5 0.0 110000 440010 1 1 You will have to rename these two lines before adding the .dat files Don't forget that the name of the car in these lines should be the same name as the car model added to the file "added_vehicles.img"(image 2).Again in my case would look like this: Vehicle: Lamborghini, Lamborghini, car, Lamborghini, TURISMO, VEH@LOW, VEH@LOW_LE1_RI1, 50, 999, 0.2667, 0.2667, 0, 5, 1.0 ,0, noboot+sports+ext_gang+ext_rare Handling:Lamborghini 1500.0 7.0 85 0.0 -0.06 -0.18 0.0 5 0.23 1.0 160.0 0.34 0.65 0.7 35.0 1.50 1.25 13.5 0.12 0.48 2.0 1.3 1.3 0.12 -0.13 0.0 0.5 1.0 1.0 0.7 1.5 0.0 110000 440010 1 1 In case you want to add a helicopter or boat, will have to put additional lines that will have the symbol "%" (percent) in the beginning of the line. example: % dragonboat 0.8 0.9 0.85 0.3 0.0 0.02 2.0 1.0 0.002 8.0 0.0 4.0 0.01 0.50 0.10 0.05 0.30 0.05 4.0 % heli maverick 0.8 0.9 0.85 0.3 0.0 0.02 2.0 1.0 0.002 8.0 0.0 4.0 0.01 0.50 0.10 0.05 0.30 0.05 4.0 Now add the line "handling" the file "added_vehicles_handling", and then add the line "vehicles" to the file "added_vehicles". Ready! your car is already added!, well you must have a program for spawning cars (by name).I recommend using scripthook, so just open the console by pressing push-button quotes "and type in SPAWN and then the name of the car added.Example: spawn Lamborghini. and so the car will appear. I hope I have helped, Oh and sorry for my English because I use a translator, in case of errors or problems please comment which I'll reply with all the attention that can.

    You have italics, things are slant, they're not straight up, they go from bottom left to top right, they don't go from down to up but sidways; is any of this getting through?

    Escape your underscores with a backslash so things don't get turned into italics.

    No: `_`
    Yes: `\_`
