San Andreas Modding

What Is Modding?

If you've never installed a mod for San Andreas, you can check out a wide range of them over in our Mod Database. Modding is the act of modifying game content originally designed by the developers of the game and a mod is something that alters the game in such a way. There are various ways to mod the game in order to add new content or even improve old content. Many different elements of the game can be modded, including:

  • Textures - These are like paint on objects, peds and vehicles.
  • Models - These are the 3D shapes of the objects/cars/peds themselves, which textures are applied to.
  • Maps - The placements of objects such as roads, buildings and scenery build up the map.
  • Data - Alter the properties and behaviours of game elements and objects.
  • Scripts - Include features and activities that make up the gameplay as well as missions.
  • Audio - Anything you hear while playing the game can be replaced with new audio files.

Generally modding is performed on PC installations of the game due to the speed and ease over console modding, which requires chipping the console and writing any file changes to disc, wheras modding on the PC only requires instant file edits.
