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.

    This crashes my game on the latest version. It still works, but if I want to save/unsave I have to restart my game (due to it crashing)

    If you guys are having trouble check out I'm Not MentaL's Persistence Parking Mod (https://www.gta5-mods.com/scripts/i-m-not-mental-s-persistance-mod). I originally started with Szabo's but have found that I'm Not MentaL's is more reliable and always works after updates. It will even save cars specifically locked by custom skins using Skin Changer.

    I am having this problem where I can't save new cars or un save old ones. it is strange because all of my previously cars are saved in their spots and there is the green dot over all of them, it's just that when I hit "0" on the Num pad nothing happens. Nothing happens when I hit "-" either. And no Num lock isn't on. I really need help. If anyone has had this same issue or knows how to fix plz respond, Thanks.

    @Shadil sadula Did you change the save location in the LUA file. if you click on it and look inside there will be a path telling the mod where it is saving the cars to. It should say "C:/Users/Alan/Documents/Rockstar Games/" after download. I just created a "Rockstar Games" folder in my Documents and then changed "Alan" to my name. you need to do this in order for it to work. and if that's not the problem then it might be that you don't have visual c++ 2013 installed. If none of this works or you have already tried it then it very well could be that your virus software keeps uninstalling it because it is recognized as a threat.
