Szabo's Persistance Mod

This mod allows you to save cars wherever you want, and also keeps the last 3 cars you entered from magically disappearing. It creates markers on the map that shows where your cars are; the markers are small and colour-coded.

No more vanishing custom cars! No more lack of garage storage! With this mod, the world is your garage!
The 'last entered cars' feature can be optionally disabled (either by configuration file or in-game hotkey).

To install, make sure you have installed Script Hook and the LUA Plugin for Script Hook, and place the .lua file in the scripts/addins folder, delete the other scripts in that folder if you're not using them.

LUA Plugin for Script Hook: http://gtaforums.com/topic/789139-vrelhook-lua-plugin-for-script-hook-v/

You MUST open the lua file in any plain text editor and set the directory where the vehicles data file will be saved. Read the commented lines on top of that file please.

    well it works if you never turn of the game, when you turn of the game and then come back all the cars you saved will either be impounded or gone forever, so it works if you don't turn of the game. Please patch this

    Guys, this mod works just fine. All you have to do is edit the LUA file in notepad. That is the reason you are not able to save the vehicles after reloading the game.

    Mod doesn't work anymore.... After you exit the game. It doesn't save the cars.

    Mod DOES work if you read the installation instructions, only (and very small) downside is that you have to hit num pad 0 to save cars in player home garage (the bought garages are fine), I'm giving 5stars

    Not working at all for me. Ive done everything correctly and followed all instructions. There are no dots appearing on my map and nothing is saving to where i told it to. Still trying to figure it out... I am using SPG if that interferes with anything.

    Has anyone else found that, when using this mod, automatic gates won't open until you basically hit it with your car? I've been experiencing this and I think this mod is the cause.

    So I got his mod working a while ago, I just have one question, if you switch characters, do the cars stay put? I'd imagine so, but just making sure.

    When I save a car, the plate customizes automatically into "myplate" How can I change this?

    This mod is awsome, it worked for me until now. I have saved a lot of cars, but yesterday i got the game up an running and i noticed that most of the cars are in their places but the first six cars i saved are gone, and the mod doesn't work. it spawns all other cars every time i open the game, like it should, but it won't save or unsave any other cars, nothing works except it spawns those cars where they are saved. What could be the problem ?
