    GTA V Basic Tutorial Convert Weapon Mod - How to Edit ydr files

    @shoozilla You need to replace the ydr.file belonging to the weapon model you want to add to the game with the original file in \update\x64\dlcpacks\patchday3ng\dlc.rpf\x64\models\cdimages\weapons.rpf\. That’s all needed.

    @Z@gor Hello, I want to ask you a few questions please.

    I got zmodeler3, 3ds max 2016, openiv, and blender.

    When i try to use a custom 3ds model in zmodeler3 and export the file to .ydr
    the item won't show in openiv and in gta 5.
    Any advice/tips. instructions how to use custom models ( no vehicles ) ?

    @Z@gor I really like the idea. Ive done this with individual melee weapon mods before. Ive requested to several weapon modders something similair except im more into lore friendly weapon types i guess youd say. Like shovels barbed wire bats crowbars wrenches etc. With OIV packages now you should give something like that a shot you do really good work!
