Random Start V2.2



Random Start

Start your game as a random character in a random scenario, or a saved character in no scenario you decide.

Now with the new 'Cayo Perico Island '.

1.8 now comes with a log file. This rewrites it's self on load. If you have a bug to report please send your logfile that is in your 'Scripts/RandomStart' with a desription of the fault.

All work is my own based on research through gta moding forums. If you want to show some support for this and my other mods please subscribe to my youtube channel, you can also find videos and links to other mods i've made for games like Black & White2, and Fallout, i will be also be adding links and videos to mods i've made on steam at some point.



    -- Random location Ped on start.
    -- Saving a custom ped including face blend data and Overlays for Freemode peds.
    -- Settings done through a menu system(Default bind is 'L' key).
    -- Permanent death..with funeral.
    -- Prison sentences. (Still may need some improvment)
    -- Trainer finder for Simple-Trainer, Menyoo, Enhanced-Native-Trainer and AddonSpawner for auto vehicle lists.


Place the scripts folder in the zip file into your 'Grand Theft Auto V' folder.


I have added a language file XML if placed in the scripts folder this will replace the in game text.
