[Guide] Installing skin and car mods for SAPD:FR Online server only  (Read 2294 times)
    NOTE: This ability is effective as of update 1.0.8.


    Installation

    To install skin mods get the files that you want to use for the mod and make sure it's the exact same name as the file of the skin you're actually replacing it with. For example tenpen.dff and tenpen.txd. If the file name is different than the skin object name it won't work.

    Once you're sure you have the right mods head over to your MTA San Andreas installation directory and open the following folders:

    "MTA San Andreas 1.x - mods - deathmatch - resources"

    Under the resources search for folder "SAPDFRMods" and open it, you should see a folder "files" inside of it, open it and simply add the files you want there. Once done, use the /settings command and turn off default server mods and either press 1 (if you were in game while installing the mod) or simply start MTA:SA and enter the SAPD:FR Online server and the skin mods should be there if everything done properly.


    Vehicle Installation

    To install vehicles just repeat the proccess as mentioned above, however for vehicles you need to name the file as vehicle ID's instead, for example if you want to edit Police LS it needs to be named 596.dff & 596.txd.

    Notes

    • This ability has been added in the 1.0.8 update
    • This works with both cars and skins therefore this system could be better if you want to install mods for SAPD:FR Online server only, in addition it also lets you reset the mods once in game which means you can install the mods without closing the game
    • It is highly recommended that you disable default modifications in /settings if you're overriding a default modified vehicle
    • This is a resource made by ccw therefore full credits go to the MTA:SA team
    • There are readme files located in the folder therefore if this thread has confused you, please read that file
    • Button for reloading the models is numpad 1 (in case you've installed the mod while MTA:SA was running)

    NOTE: As of update 1.0.9 this installer also works with weapon mods as well as car names.

    Very cool update so now we can install mods just for server without replacing the original files from the game, right? If yes this is very good.

    Yes, but do keep in mind it only works with skin and vehicle mods.

    Just wanted to thank you for this update. It's truly amazing that we can change skins and vehicle models while in game and instantly see the changes! Keep up the great work  :)
