Car modding finally hits GTA IV

Grand Theft Auto IV - Modifications | @ 11:20 AM MDT | By rappo
The moment GTA IV modding has been waiting for hit a couple days ago, when Oleg, creator of the famous GTA-friendly 3D modeling software ZModeler, released a WFT exporter. This addition to ZModeler means it's possible to export GTA IV models! Although the exporter is in a beta stage and exported models can potentially decrease game stability, modders have already begun to fiddle with the tool.

One mod built using the exporter has been making the rounds: Uranus Cabrio. It's a simple mod that removes the top of the Uranus, making it a convertible, but it shows the hopefully strong future that GTA IV car modding will bring. For now, enjoy:


An installation guide is available in the download archive, but you'll need SparkIV first.

Hell Yes!

I hope someone makes a MonsterTruck of some sort, the vehicle damage in GTA4 is rediculous fun.

corryms, this means what you're thinking.

It's a whole new discover at GTA IV Modding World.

This is only at beta stage, right now, but the truth is I've tried the Uranus mod and it actually works. So, the Vehicle Mods section of this website will no longer have only 25 mods. In a matter of facts, I predict it will have 25 mods per week in a very close future :D

Yeah think if somebody had some ridiculously large and heavy vehicle, and drove it over another car...I wonder if there'd be some reaction like from the swingset of death, or if it'd actually look like a real life crushing effect.

Your Mercedes conversion is excellent. Highly recommended. This is unrelated and im sorry but why is it that all the niko conversions still look like niko and it looks like they only change his skin colour unlike CJ in SA. Will this be possible in the future?

sure it will. the WTF files modifications change the skins of vehicles, players, objects and weapons ;)

you know what I think? Alexander Blade has made a great work with his mods and specially ASI Loader. this made us living in a totally new world of GTA IV modding, but Oleg has made a beautiful job with this WTF Exporter :'D
