GTA 4 adding cars and mods

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
Bought GTA 4 over the weekend, since it was on sale. After a little bit of work, i got it to work on Windows 7.
Now that everything is working, i want to have some fun.
I saw online a bunch of videos of actual cars that were put into the game via a downloadable mod or whatever it may be. Is anyone into that kinda stuff? and would anyone be able to tell me if it is simple and easy to put actual cars in the game? I appreciate it.

I go here for all gta4 mods. they have quite the selection, and all of the mods are easy to install as long as you know how to read lol. Now if you're asking if its easy to make a mod yourself, then no not really

You had to make GTA 4 work on windows 7? It worked on mine right off the bat. Also, did you buy it off of steam? Because I'm pretty sure than you cannot mod the Steam version of the GTA's.

From what i understand, no, because you affect game data, instead of game saves.

EDIT: http://forums.steampowered.com/forum...d.php?t=801265 steam users mod aswell, its also beneficial since you can rewind most mods by using the verify game cache feature.

All it needs is a mod that makes your framerate not suck
