– Added a compatibility patch for the Dispatchworks Pack
– Removed the IVPack, Realism Dispatch Enhanced & World of Variety compatibility patches

Q1: I downloaded the .rar archive, but it isn’t an .OIV file. How can I install the pack?
– Open the .rar archive with WinRaR (or any other file archiver program), click on the “Vanillaworks Extended – Download links.txt” file, and download the pack from one of the links provided in the file.

Q2: I opened the .rar archive and there’s only “content”, “content.xml” and “icon.png” files inside.
– Update your file archiver (7Zip/WinRaR/etc.) to the latest version.

Q3: I tried to open the .rar archive but it says that the file is corrupted.
– Try opening it with a different file archiver (7Zip instead of WinRaR for example). If that doesn’t work, redownload the pack using one of the mirror links (Google Drive/MediaFire/MEGA) that can be found inside the “Vanillaworks Extended – Download Links.txt” file.

Q4: With this pack installed the game either crashes or freezes during the loading screen.
– You’re not on the latest copy of the game or you need to use a different gameconfig.

Q5: With this pack installed I’m not able to complete/start any of the story mode missions.
– Replace the gameconfig.xml file with the one created by F7YO.

Q6: I replaced my gameconfig with the one mentioned above, but I’m still not able to complete/start any missions.
– Temporarily disable your mods folder by going to the main directory of Grand Theft Auto V and renaming your mods folder to “_mods” (without quotations). Then go back ingame, complete the mission(s), save, quit the game, rename your “_mods” folder back to “mods” (without quotations).

Q7: After installing this pack I experience texture loss ingame. How can I fix this?
– It may be that the vehicles included in this pack are too much for your PC to handle. To fix it, you can try restoring the popcycle.dat, popgroups.ymt & vehiclemodelsets.meta files to the original ones to stop the vehicles with high quality liveries from spawning in traffic which should help with the texture loss, but doing that means you won’t be able to see any of the pack vehicles spawn in traffic.

Q8: Do the vehicles included in this pack spawn naturally in traffic?
– Yes. Most of the vehicles included in this pack spawn naturally.

Q9: I’ve installed IVPack, Realism Dispatch Enhanced, World of Variety and/or some other mod that modifies the NPC traffic, and I don’t see the vehicles from this pack spawning in traffic anymore. How can I fix this?
– Follow the steps mentioned in the “How to edit popgroups.ymt.txt” file located in the Options – Compatibility Patches folder inside the downloaded Vanillaworks Extended Pack 2.4.rar archive.

Q10: While driving around the game world, I only see a handful of different vehicles in the traffic. How can I increase the variety of the traffic?
– Go to C:\Users\USERNAME\Documents\Rockstar Games\GTA V, open the “settings.xml” file and search for “VehicleVarietyMultiplier”, and then increase the value of it to a value between 1.1 and 2.0.
NOTE: This will increase VRAM usage while ingame.

Q11: While driving around the game world, certain newer DLC vehicles despawn as I get close to them. How can I fix this?
– This is caused by the developers of the game adding a script to the game that despawns all newer DLC vehicles in the game once they’ve spawned in. To get around this, install a trainer such as Menyoo, Simple Trainer or any other trainer that prevents DLC vehicles from despawning.

Q12: I experience random game crashes while traveling around the game world. How can I fix them?
– Replace the popcycle.dat, popgroups.ymt & vehiclemodelsets.meta files with the original ones.

Q13: Is this pack compatible with the GTA 5 Redux mod? If not, will it ever be compatible?
– No. The pack is not compatible with Redux and never will be.
