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.

    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 ?

    I tried this mod and it worked really well. but after some days when i tried to save a vehicle in the game, the game freezes for a while and it won't save. When I installed this mod I followed the instructions. some say that you have to edit the LUA file to solve the problem but i don't no WHAT i have to change. It is a really cool mod but after a while it stopped working.

    This mod is so touchy. All of a sudden today every time i start GTA it deletes theGTAV.EXE right away so that it cannot start and the copies files over to the game directory for mods that aren't even enabled. i can't even start the game through Mod Manager with everything diabled. ANyone else having issues?

    I love it! For those saying that the vehicles won't save: You have to configure the save path in the provided lua script file. Change "alan" to your username.

    I get the orange dot on the cars but when ever I press the save key nothing happens. The enable and disable key works because the words pop up on the screen but not the saved words as shown on the video?

    yea. it's work. For this mode to work,of course, you need to install a script hook and LUA(other mod required), but you need to check the car save file directory. Just open this mod lua file with notepad, and search(Ctrl+f) "local savepath" and modify&save.
