Ok, so today I'm gonna teach you how to install mods via SAPDFR mods folder. What does this mean? Well, this mean that you don't have to mod your gta3.img if you want to install a vehicle, a skin or even a pack. You may want to check number *9*!.

Video tutorial made by 2k16: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=j_0NLlYgj00 -There is no need to change the vehicle's name to it's id.
1. Download the mod that you want (check our mods section: http://forum.sapdfr.advanced-gaming.org/index.php?board=11.0).
2. Extract it on your desktop.
3. Go to "mods\deathmatch\resources\SAPDFRMods\files" (You should find this where you have installed your MTA).
    !Do not enter "server\mods\deathmatch"!
4. Copy the extracted files !(only .txd and .dff in this folders: Vehicles, Skins, Weapons. PNG is for TXDHACK)! and paste them in one of the 4 folders. They should be: Vehicles, Skins, Weapons, txdhack .
5. Enter the game
6. Login and then press "1 on your numpad". (You may have to do this every time you enter the game)
7. Enjoy!
*8*. "Possible the cars may be all white, without a texture, and in this case you have to write /settings in the chat, then go to "Modifications and renders" and then uncheck "default vehicle shader".
*9*. Also the best part on our server is that you can enter it and install mods with the game opened. How? Simple just: Enter the game - server(login) - press "windows key" or "alt+tab" and then do this steps: 1; 2; 3; 4. Since you are already logged in, just press 1 on numpad.

-But wait, my lightbars are all white/have weird texture.
-Follow this tutorial: http://forum.sapdfr.advanced-gaming.org/index.php?topic=318.0. *With the updated mods folder you don't need to do this anymore, only if you want.(Or you can download this: https://mega.nz/#!kuRE2BBS!izDmjlpdXh0BheX0J7_92YibqnIIzw-hTqDgiF37RQ4 and then go to your Grand Theft Auto:San Andreas > models > generic > replace "vehicle.txd")*
-My mods are not working!
-In this case you may have done something wrong. So please do again the steps that are above.
