The Character Vehicle Mod [.NET] (w/ Trunk Weapons) 1.2

FOR ALL INFORMATION AND PRODUCTION VERSION DOWNLOADS PLEASE VISIT: http://www.teamcoremods.com/mods/the-character-vehicle-mod

Don't you just hate it! From all the cars that you can steal and buy, you can't set one as your character's default vehicle. Now you can. We even added a few extra options making sure it works in almost all if not all game missions. Try it out and convince yourself that the game is way better without having an ugly car forced upon you.

  • Activate the mod either via the menu (I) or by pressing a key (K) (Controller: DpadR & LB/L1). (Editable in INI)
  • Grab any car you wish and save it. The vehicle will automatically overwrite the default vehicle of the character.
  • To modify a saved vehicle just do what you normally do and save again.
  • To remove your saved vehicle you select the option `Clear Current Save Vehicle` from the menu.
  • When there is no vehicle in the area and the blip is not on the map you can always spawn your vehicle via the menu. The vehicle will spawn in a nearby parking space.
  • When you have save vehicle, you have the ability to save your weapons into the trunk of said vehicle by walking up to the trunk and following the on screen prompt.

    @Team Core Its 95% workin. Just one bug so far. In some missions like when 1st time a vehicle is introduced. Vehicle is default. Example:
    Mission name "Franklin & Lamar" at dealership there is original buffalo instead of replaced vehicle. Same case with Trevor's Truck in Mission "Mr.Philips". Hope there is a solution for that.

    Team Core, i have one question about your mod.
    Generally, mod works fine, but! During missions, saved car changes to default. How to solve this, is this possible at all?

    I got a little problem with this mod. The player vehicle doesn't move from the safehouse. Normally, it should move near the player in certain events, like completing a mission, but now I have to go to my safehouse to get it. Also, missions use the old car (although It only happened with the mission where Michael meets with his family again, not sure if it happens with all missions).

    One of the most needed mods ever! HOWEVER! I have an error: Can't replace mission vehicle...even tho I am not trying to replace during any missions, free roam only. Could it be because Michael's car is currently with Jimmy, so Michael technically uses a 'mission' car? Or is it a bug? Coz I cant change cars for Trevor or Franklin either =(((

    @omar143 @zafty @FLEXZSAN The car you are trying to save as a PV is saved with Sbazo's Persistence Mod, right? Untag the car (e.i. press NUM0 = unsave it) and then change in to PV. You're welcome!
