There are many sources for modifications for Grand Theft Auto games, but there is one thing that makes Modding Forum's filebase unique:
Every modification has been tested by our experienced staff to ensure that it's up to our quality standards. There is a countless number of modifications for GTA, but some might have bugs or other issues or cause massive performance hits - we try to find all of those issues and give the author advice to improve their work.
Would you like to submit your own modification?
If you would like to submit your own modifications to our filebase, make sure to read these guidelines carefully and follow our recommendations wherever possible. The better your work is, the faster we are able to approve it. Please note that it might take up to a week until your submission will be reviewed.
You can get feedback and advice whether your mod is already released or still in progress. If you are unsure how to fix certain issues, you can post your questions at our GTA IV and GTA V Mod Support categories.
Join our Developers group
To be able to upload modifications in our filebase, you must be a member of the Developers user group. If you would like to join, send us an application with links to your modifications, preferably uploaded in the Showroom in our forums. We will review your work to see if you are capable of creating your own modifications without bugs or other issues.
Presenting your modification
- Choose the required categories and labels depending on your modification. If you believe no existing category suits your modification, select the game category only, our staff members will sort it and add new categories if required.
- Provide complete and correct credits listing the names of all contributors and specifying what work they have done.
- Your installation instructions should be clear and correct.
- Include a readme file with your download providing at least credits and installation instructions.
- Choose a suitable and comprehensible title. Use a well-formatted and clear description to present your work. Describe your modification briefly in the summary. Don't use the filebase to provide off-topic information.
- Attach further screenshots. To save file size, we recommend the use of jpgs instead of pngs.
Your mod itself
- If you use any part you have not created yourself, make sure you are permitted to use it.
- Make sure your mod has no bugs. Common issues with vehicle mods and possible fixes can be found here.
- Use a consistent setup following the standards from the default game. Of course creating something special is absolutely fine, but be sure it actually fits into the game.
- Try to create something unique. Many mods might have already been created earlier, therefore unique work is usually more appreciated.
Uploading Packs or Collections
- Instead of uploading packs, we recommend splitting them into seperate files and uploading them individually into the respective categories. This allows users to filter for specific modifications without missing anything.
- If you upload packs containing parts you have not created, make sure you are permitted to use all of them. Please don't upload any modifications that you didn't contribute to.
