Realistic Driving V v2.2

Realistic Driving V
successor of the popular GTA IV driving mod

This mod changes driving physics in GTA V to be as realistic as possible. Physics definitions for every single vehicle have been created from scratch utilizing every single available parameter. Development started on May 13 2015 and took 22 months, 1400+ hours. Driving physics were created for each of the 320 vehicles individually, spending an average of 3.3 hours on each vehicle. Every single change made by this mod has been MEASURED INGAME and CONFIRMED to be working as intended. Hence the long development phase. No theory crafting, no assumptions. This mod is based on hard facts only.
Most striking features of this mod:
  • Realistic driving physics (proper tire grip on different surfaces, traction curve, slip angle)
  • All driveable surfaces have reworked properties
  • Realistic offroad driving (giving the HUGE offroad areas in GTA V a purpose, hillclimb, dirt track)
  • Performance of every single vehicle matches its real-life counterpart perfectly (acceleration curve, top speed, braking, grip, handling characteristics, wheelspin)
  • Huge improvements to motorcycles
  • Improvements to other physics (eg making it possible to ram police vehicles, slightly more realistic PIT maneuver)
  • automated brakes have been disabled for every single vehicle
  • Police cars dont drive like on rails anymore, more realistic physics are applied to their vehicles
  • Alternative "Scaled Topspeed" version of this mod, offering speed governor and brake assist
  • Option for increased vehicle deformation

  • ill Gotten Gains 1
  • ill Gotten Gains 2
  • Lowrider

  • January2016
  • Valentine

Supercars, Sports Cars, Coupes, Sedans, Compacts, Classic Sportscars, Muscle Cars, Lowriders, SUVs, Offroad, Vans, Service, Emergency, Motorcycles.

Heavy Trucks, Helicopters, Planes, Boats

Custom cars:
This mod was developed specifically for vanilla 3D-models. Custom car models have completely different center of mass and wheelbase. Making this mod work with all custom cars is impossible. Using custom cars will have a very noticeable negative impact on car handling. Dont complain about things that i cannot possibly fix. please.

    == Troubleshooting ==
    This mod was created for game version 1.38 (v1.0.1011.1)

    Problem: Installer fails to install
    Solution: right-click on OpenIV.exe and select: "run as administrator"

    Problem: "corrupted game files" message on startup
    Solution: you need OpenIV.asi to load modified game files

    Problem: Game crashes on loading screen (outdated game version)
    Solution: update your game to version 1.38 or install modified gameconfig.xml: https://www.gta5-mods.com/misc/gameconfig-for-patch-1-0-757-2-update-at-each-r-update

    Problem: Game crashes on loading screen (mod conflict)
    Solution: remove all other mods before installing this mod

    Problem: RDE 3.0 crashes
    Solution: Download the alternative gameconfig.xml file from the RDE homepage

    Manual installation: open the *.oiv installer with a zip tool (eg 7-Zip) to extract its content

    @Killatomate So, you have the RE-7B based on the 1998 Nissan R390 GTR Lemans... but shouldn't it be based on the Mazda 787B endurance car? That's the car the GTAV Wiki says the RE-7B is based on, anyways.

    I love your mod so much, now i feel playing Gran* Tu*rismo on GTA V.
    But i just can use your Realistic Driving V v1.1, your v2.2 always crash.
    Can you give me the handling.meta of Realistic Driving v.2.2 ?
    Because my internet so bad, i can't update the newest version of GTA V, it took giga's file to download
    I live on the mining site so my wifi provider cannot download gigas file

    Sorry for my bad english

    @REYMEXzone Copy the specific handling lines from the handling meta in mods/update/update rpf
    Paste/replace lines in Addon car's handling meta.
    Make sure you copy and paste correctly with proper handling line spacing and indexing

    Best GTA V Mod by far. Works best with Enhanced Native Trainer and an XBox 360 controller.
