Bugs when PC modding?

SA had stream memory issues like a bitch and sound mods caused other sounds to mess up too. Is IV perfect for modding though or are there any issues?

There are a few minor issues when modding, the game itself isn't really optimised for PC (ocassional drop in frame-rate and things like that). Modding weapons and installing a graphics mod will not really cause any problem, but installing modded cars causes this bug to arise that's known as the 'taxibug'. It means if you even install one custom car 9/10 cars that appear in traffic will be a taxi (or a cop car).

There are some fixes, they don't work for everybody and some effect the performance of the game. If you have limited space on your HDD it can be annoying that you have to backup files (most mods replace default files instead of adding files). I never saw that as a problem, but it can be to some people.

All in all I'd still say Gta IV is a great game to mod, installing custom weapons and weaponsounds alone can make the game so much better. There are also alot of very cool scripts that make the game alot more fun, if you're still not sure just look around on gta4-mods.com and see what kind of mods you can find.

Thanks. So I can mod every sound, gun, and skin without problems?

And what is behind the taxibug?

Well yeah but not every sound (only gunsounds and ambient sounds) you can't mod speech sounds in GTA 4

If I remember correctly the taxibug had something to do with taxis being the easiest to load for the game, custom vehicles are bigger in size so harder to load in traffic. Don't know the specifics
