Ultimate guide to GTAIV modding


How to install custom cars in GTAIV
This works for both retail and steam versions!

Things you will need:

SparkIV -make sure you have framework 3.5 installed

Your choice of car - This site is just an example, there are plenty more to get custom cars off from.

Installation:
1. Extract SparkIV from its .Zip file.

2. The car you choose usually will come in a .zip or .rar format. If you do not have
winrar, download it and install to be able to extract the .rar archive.

3. Run SparkIV.exe from the extracted file. Make sure to run as administrator to avoid problems when overwriting files.

4. On the top left of the program. Click on the game that you are planning to mod. Once clicked, it will automatically scan for the installation folder of the game and the program might become unresponsive so let its scan for about 30 seconds.

5. Once loaded it will open the folder where GTAIV is located. Navigate within the program to pc/models/cdimages/ and select vehicles.img and click open on the top panel of the program.

6. Now you will see a list of all the cars in the game and their respective ".wft .wtd" Files. When you install custom cars in GTAIV you cannot add a new vehicle per say , you are actually just replacing the car model. So depending on the car model you downloaded, it's made to replace a car in the game. You are able to change the name of the file you downloaded from it's original intent to a corresponding car in the game to compensate for more modded cars. Just make sure it's exactly the same in as in game.

7. Now click "Import" on the top panel of the program and a file explorer will appear and now navigate to where you extracted your custom car. Select both the .wft and .wtd files and open to successfully open them in program.

8. Now click "Rebuild and then "Save" in that order to them appear in the game! You're not done though, chances are the new model is going to be buggy and make your car flip or may not look the same as in the picture provided in the mod.

9. If there is a readme files inside the mod you download it will usually contain the code of handing.dat for that specific vehicle. Handling.dat is the file that contains all the code that are needed to make the car control properly. It might also include code from carcols.dat to change the color of the car in game. These two files are essential because the new imported model changes how the car reacts to the terrain and if you do not edit these with the one provided by the editor, your car might act weird and not turn properly or different panels of the car maybe be colored differently.

Here are code examples
Note: I'm using the Sultan RS car as an example. Your selected mod might be differnet

Handling.dat code looks like this:
Code:
SULTANRS     1510.0  0.0   88   0.0 -0.04 -0.37         0.25 6 0.27  1.0 241.0  0.26 0.610 0.7 35.0            1.55 1.4 13.5 0.14 0.4980                 2.3  2.3  2.3 0.11 -0.15 0.008 0.48             1.0 0.6 1.05 1.5        0.0  30000 404400F0 04400001 1

Carcols.dat code looks like this:

Note: Might be two lines of code that will be needed to be changed.
Code:
sultanrs, sultanrs,car,SULTANRS,SULTANRS,VEH@STD,VEH@STD_RI1_LO1,100,999,0.2363, 0.2363, 0,5,1.0 ,1, ext_gang+ext_all+ext_strong
Code:
sultanrs, 0,133,0, 6,133,6, 31,133,31, 51,133,51, 69,133,69, 89,133,89,


10. Make sure to make backups of these two files in case of errors! To edit handling.dat and carcols.dat simply open them notepad by right click the file and select "Open With" and select notepad from the list of programs. If it's not there you are going to have to browse for it. It should be on in windows/system32/. Once opened, file the name of the car you will be replacing and it's corresponding line of code. Then copy and paste the code provided by the readme file in your mod and replace the code. Do this for both handling.dat and carcols.dat. Once you do that , save it and you are ready to use your custom cars!

How to install iCEnhancer 1.25

Things you will need:

iCEnhancer 1.25 - The mod itself

GTA 1.04 Patch - Needed for optium results for iCEnhancer 1.25

Rockstar social tool thingy - Needed to start 1.04

Xlive.dll - To by pass game file checks.

Installation:

Steam Version
1. Open to your steam library and right click on GTAIV and click properties. In that same window go to the "Updates" tab and select " Do not automatically update this game". This is necessary so steam does not override your files and tries to update your modded game. From here, it's the same as the retail version.

Retail Version + Steam

1. Downgrade or upgrade your installation of GTAIV to 1.04 to which this mod works best with. Once downloaded, double click the .exe and it will downgrade/upgrade your installation.

2. I suggest backing up if anything goes wrong at this point. Just copy your GTAIV folder to your desktop or to another place for save keeping just in case.

3. Rename your GTAIV to GTA-aaa or something different. The folder is located in "Program Files (x86)/rockstar games/ or Steam\steamapps\common\Grand Theft Auto IV. This is necessary show the social tool doesn't report that we have the latest version installed already.

4. Run the Rockstar Social Tool thingy and let it update the files. Now it created a new folder in where your GTAIV installation was. This newly created by the program is a folder called "GTAIV". Navigate to it and copy its contents to your GTA-aaa or whatever you named and overwrite
all files. Now you are free to deleted the GTAIV that it made and rename your GTA-aaa folder back to its original name; GTAIV.

5. Now from the Xlivedll.rar that you downloaded, simply extract it's xlive.dll to the GTAIV folder.

6. Now extract iCEnhancer 1.25.rar. Open the folder and then open the folder "Normal version for 1040 patch". Now you have a bit of variety here. All the .rar files are alternate versions of certain things; ie. sunshafts, lens flare, DoF. Once you have choosen what you want, select everything single file from the "Normal version for 1040 patch" folder and copy and paste it to your GTAIV folder and overwrite everything.

6. Run the game and have fun! biggrin.gif

Hmm. Well, online with my buddies outweighs single player car mods:P I know all texture mods work in MP, so, guess I'll just install some textures.
