Northern Dream


This is a special atmospheric map mod for winter and christmas on GTA V with a lot of updates and new things planned in the future for this one.

This mod adds several icy and snowy islands with a nordic forest, frozen lakes / ocean, and some housing, especially for fishing, exploration, oil mining and also for polar tourism.

There are also a house with interior, some activities, christmas decorations and pedestrians / scenes.

Living on this place is quite difficult, every move must be done by snowmobile or helicopter. Food and equipment are brought by boat or plane, but this area has a lot of potential for a future extension and city construction.

I highly recommend to use my mod with a snow mod (with a trainer or anything that bring snow for weather and ground effect).

4 - In game, press F7 and click on load map as xml. And type "north" in order to load the map.

5 - Go in the ocean, in the North of Los Santos map until you see the frozen islands.

known bugs :
- Sometimes some textures disappear and reappear. This seems related to the objects themselves.
- If you have any issue with water (waves that covers the ice), check "FlattenWater V" installation and activation, but this could also be caused by another mod you've installed on GTA V that modify wave scale. You should uninstall / turn off your water mod in order to solve this issue.
- If you have any bugs when loading the game, map editor error or issue with step 2 above, please follow step 6 below :
