Enhance your gaming experience with some of these GTA 5 mods:
1. Fuel Script V:
- If you want a more realistic vehicle-driving experience in GTA 5, Fuel Script V is perfect. This mod introduces a fuel limit for your vehicle. You’ll see a fuel gauge on the mini-map while driving. If you run out of fuel, your vehicle won’t start. You’ll need to find a gas station and fill up the tank when fuel is low. You can even grab a can from the trunk, walk to a gas station, fill it, and then use it to refuel your vehicle. All of this comes with incredibly realistic graphics.
2. GTA V Redux:
- The GTA V Redux mod significantly improves the game’s graphics quality. It provides visuals close to 4K resolution, along with new weather views and different effects. Besides visuals, vehicle usage in this mod becomes much more realistic. If you pay attention to other characters, you’ll notice that their behaviors are more lifelike rather than the usual scripted actions.
3. NaturalVision Evolved:
- Since GTA 5 is a relatively old game, its graphics may not align with today’s standards. NaturalVision Evolved comes into play here by drastically improving graphics. Along with weather-appropriate graphics, this mod offers stunning changes in ambient colors, tones, and lighting details. Building exteriors and even water bodies appear much more realistic.
4. Open All Interiors:
- Any dedicated GTA 5 player knows that you can’t just enter every building or room on the map. Open All Interiors changes this and allows you to enter dozens of new buildings. After installing this mod, you’ll notice changes to your map, with new locations added. Moreover, all the new buildings and rooms have new characters, expanding not just the map but the game world.
5. Benny’s Original Motor Works:
- Benny’s Original Motor Works, encountered in the GTA Online version, can be accessed in the offline version using this mod. Once you enter the store, numerous options for upgrading your vehicle will appear. Alongside classic engine, suspension, exhaust, and wheel upgrades, you can make your vehicle’s color unique. Additionally, you can personalize your vehicle’s interior with a masterful touch.
6. Prison Mod:
- When you’ve committed every possible crime and have all the police on your tail, there are two options: either you die or get arrested. With the Prison Mod, if you get caught, you end up in prison and start playing as an inmate. As an inmate, you can fight other prisoners, roam around, and try to escape from prison. Of course, escaping is no easy feat.
7. 4K Water:
- Let’s admit it; GTA 5 water graphics are not very satisfying. Enter the 4K Water mod, which focuses on improving these graphics. With this mod, you’ll see that water graphics have been resized. It may not happen on every screen, but when the 4K Water mod is installed, it feels like you’re looking at recorded water images from a documentary.
8. PRSA (PhotoRealistic San Andreas):
- The PhotoRealistic San Andreas mod is another mod offered to enhance GTA 5 graphics. When you install PRSA, you’ll be greeted with a world featuring cinematic graphics. This way, you’ll feel like you’re watching a Hollywood movie on the big screen rather than playing a game. With properly adjusted shadows and lighting, the graphics become incredibly lifelike.
Bonus: Fiat Doblo:
- Let’s make things a bit more fun and drive around the roads of GTA 5 with a Fiat Doblo. With the Fiat Doblo mod, you can add a touch of humor to your gaming experience. While it might not significantly improve the game quality, it certainly doubles the enjoyment you get from the game.
