A real NYC roadsign mod for GTA4
This mod converts all the roadsigns in Liberty City to their real-life New York City equivalents. This project was started many years ago and I have had a great time creating this and updating it for the community. In summary, almost all of the highway traffic signs are replaced (a very small number have yet to be located). This will be the second official release, this version updating a few textures and adding a few I missed in the first release. Additionally I have included an optional american.gxt and bus stop textures.
The Bronx, Queens, Brooklyn, Manhattan, New Jersey and above ground subway entrance signs.
Full subway interior replacements have been completed and have been released here on gtagarage . Due to the scale of the project I have decided to release it as a separate mod, to be used in conjunction with this one. It can be found at
This mod features detailed, realistic improvements to the traffic signs. The new typefaces are the correct versions and the signs themselves have been researched to contain accurate directions and route information where possible.
There will be some things that people do not agree with, i.e the names of particular roads or highways etc, the best example being as how i have referred to Francis Int as LGA (La Guardia). However even if you do think that JFK is more appropriate this is not up for debate at the moment. If there is enough interest I may release alternate roadsigns for the airport area.
However, with this in mind I am interested in feedback. The scale of this mod means that there are over 100 files modded and over 500 separate roadsign textures included. I have not been able to confirm that every sign is in exactly the right place, or that every arrow points the right way. I would very much appreciate any comments people might have about this project and how it can be improved.
Thanks and enjoy.
Hi, thanks for the feedback.
The "cool" speedo skin (thanks) is one I made for my IV speedo pack and is available here:
Sorry it hasn't worked for you. It has been tested on 188.8.131.52, 184.108.40.206 and EFLC 220.127.116.11. There is no reason why it should cause malfunctions if installed properly as it is a simple texture replacement mod. Are you completely sure you put all the files in place correctly? Let me know if you have any more trouble with it and I will try to help as best I can.
Sorry man, what GTA IV version is compatible with this? I have 18.104.22.168 and I used spark IV 0.6.8, and it broke my game :S
When the loading screen of character begins and the bg sound starts, the bg sound stops in abt 4 secs. and the loading screen keeps rolling over characters without an end! I made a repair of files but couldn't, I didn't do backup and I gotta reinstall gta again with all stuffs : any idea? maybe I used wrong the spark? I browse, then I select respective .img, then edit, later import files (.wtd/.wtr), rebuild and save? is that the way? thanks for the time.
