Some mods don't work even though I patched

Hello, strangely when I edit some files like water.dat by removing or adding lines to it the game crashes. If I add cars to the game, the game doesn't recognize them. However, all script mods do work. I patched my game a long time ago so I don't remember which method but most patchers tell me my game is already patched. What could be the problem?

You have to be careful when editing those .dat files, if you mess up a single dot, number or whatever your game will crash.

Make sure after editing those files that they're still .dat files (and not .txt files)

I recommend using simple native trainer to check if those cars work

Or did you mean you can't install them at all? Are you using sparkIV/OpenIV to place them into the vehicles.img? Alot of modders give their vehicle files a custom name, if you import those in SparkIV it won't recognize them indeed, you first need to name them (give them the same name as the vehicle you want to replace).

In OpenIV you can simply right-click the vehicle you want to replace with it, hit 'replace' and select the custom car file

Well I can create the custom img file with the custom car in it, I edit all the files the tutorial suggests except for the ped one. But I can't spawn it in the game.

Could also be caused by the mod you've downloaded. Though I doubt someone would upload a mod that isn't 100% working. So yet I think it would be your editing yes.

Okay well do you mind if I post here exactly what files I edited and how I edited them and you can tell me what I did wrong? This is bothering me so much.

You do know you have to use the added car list in simple native trainer to spawn them right?
