New License Plates [Add-On] 25DEC217



The first license plate pack working as an add-on. Featuring 45 lore-friendly license plates; 7 from iFruit files, 1 from game files, 36 made from scratch, 1 designed by another person. All plates feature custom normal maps and other parameters such as text size, color, or placement on the actual plate. Kind of a shame Rockstar never added the plates featured in iFruit files, it would add some variety to customization.

"It's that time of the year, when it is snowing to the point hell can freeze over and seeing how this is San Andreas we're in, it's probably an apocalypse. Is it not cold enough for you? Head out to Minnewa or Misquakewan. Still not cold enough? Tanadux is your friend. But then, you might as well head out to Carcer City for a quick death, or just chuck yourself down a volcano in Haiateaa. Or do you not care about weather conditions and prefer to chill out to 1980's insipred movies and music? In that case we've managed to cram in another San Andreas variation - The Retrowave. Merry Christmas!"
­ - Updated compatibility to GTA Online:The Doomsday Heist (v1.0.1290.1).
- Added OpenIV package for easier installation.
- Added seven new plates: Minnewa, Yankton (clean), Misquakewan, Carcer City, Tanadux, Haiateaa, SA Retrowave
- Carcer City plates included in the mod with permission from BLACKHACK09, modified to keep them consistent with other plates in the mod. www.carcer.gov and CCPD plates are optional variants.
- Updated San Andreas (Yellow) plate, it is not as bright anymore.
- The original bright color is now an optional variant.
- Rewritten the installation instructions. Hopefully they are more clear now. Thanks to futurestoryteller for feedback and suggestions.
- Updated random chance carvariation files with the seven new plates. The chances are:
- 3% for San Andreas (Retrowave) [select vehicles only]
- 1% for Yankton (clean) [20% for snowy vehicles]
- 1% for Misquakewan
- 1% for Minnewa
- 1% for Carcer City
- 1% for Tanadux
- 1% for Haiateaa

--- Installation ---
See the readme. Or use the OpenIV package.

Currently there is no known way to get the plates to appear in Los Santos Customs. There are trainers (Simple Trainer and Menyoo for example) out there that allow to select added on plates. Another way to get them to spawn is by circulating them in traffic, which is, unfortunately, a quite tedious step. Nothing is stopping you from replacing existing plates, though, if you don't want to go through all the trouble of adding them to traffic and/or don't like using trainers.

To add the plates into traffic you will have to add their names into "Plate Probability" section in carvariations.meta - note that you need to use the correct plate names below;

- Liberty City Plate
- Liberty City Plate 2
- Liberty City Plate 3
- Vice City Plate
- Sprunk Plate
- Patriot Plate
- Shrimps Plate
- SA Lake
- North Birds
