    GTA V PC Modding

    t still feels like yesterday when GTA IV came out on PC on 3rd December 2008 along with the endlessly entertaining mods that followed suite, Iron Man and even WatchDogs just to name some of the most popular ones. GTA V was released September 2013 and one of the first topics of discussion was how crazy modders were going to go with this game. Fast Forward 19 months and the PC version of possibly one of the greatest games ever made (definitely in my books) is finally released.

    GTA V PC Modding has begun.

    It still feels like yesterday when GTA IV came out on PC on 3rd December 2008 along with the endlessly entertaining mods that followed suite, Iron Man and even WatchDogs just to name some of the most popular ones. GTA V was released September 2013 and one of the first topics of discussion was how crazy modders were going to go with this game. Fast Forward 19 months and the PC version of possibly one of the greatest games ever made (definitely in my books) is finally released.

    We’ve had to sit through a number of delays to finally get here but it was worth it. The PC version of GTA V is exquisite and exceptionally produced to take full advantage of current gen PC’s. That $3000 system has been waiting for a game like GTA V. With so many disappointing PC titles that simply turned out to be poorly developed console ports; Rockstar showed us there still is hope for PC gamers.

    But let’s talk about the mods, that is why we are here after all and already there’s a few cool stuff out there that most will be quite happy about. I’ve personally tested and play with a few of these mods so they do work quite well and it was something I was hoping for ever since I first installed the game on the PS3.

    #1 – Script Hook V

    Script Hook is the library that lets you load up native functions in custom plugin files. This works and is very similar to the ‘Simple Trainer’ plugin from GTA IV that I spent hours using. It does need a little bit more GUI work but overall it does pretty much everything you could ask for. (The script hook comes built-in with the trainer).

    From simple things like changing the weather, time of day and player specific options to more complex things that you normally would never encounter in regular play like spawning the Cargo Plane (the gigantic plane from one of Trevor’s missions).

    #2 – LinGon Trainer

    One of the first (if not the first) trainers for the PC version of GTA V. It loads separately in it’s own .exe and adds some basic yet useful trainer options to the game. It’s simple, it works and comes in hand quite a bit!

    For now that’s all. I know there’s a few more others out there but for now let’s start off with these two popular ones!
