Description
With "Switch driver mod", your friends can drive instead of you!

How to use this mod
First, you need to install it. The requeriments and installation instructions are in "Installation instructions.txt" file. Plase read it carefully, most "not working" problems are because of that! Then recruit anybody and get a car, helicopter or boat. When you and your homies are in the car, helicopter or boat, press TAB for switch the driver. A text box'll appear telling you everything that you can do being a passenger with this mod. Keep in mind that helicopters' driving AI gains altitude first, and then goes to the target. Also, boats' AI goes to the target in straight line, no matter of obstacles.
Frecuently asked questions
Q: The mod doesn't work and I installed it following the installation instructions! What's wrong with the mod? A: First, make sure that you didn't disable it in the mod configuration file. If enabled, have you another similar, TAB-activated mods? Perhaps they're blocking my mod. If you're trying to switch driver on a boat, notice that they're disabled by default and you need to activate them in the mod configuration file. If not, have you renamed the mod files? The mod won't work if you rename it. That's an anti-stealing feature. If you didn't rename it, make sure that you have CLEO 4 installed, because this mod requires it to work. You can find a link to download it in the "Installation instructions.txt" file. If it stills not working, try downloading the mod again, and if it didn't anything reinstall the game without any mod. Q: I don't like a mod feature. Can I change it? A: Of course! You can change it and revert it back to the original one using the mod configuration file, anytime you want! Open it with Notepad and enjoy chaning the configuration. Maybe you find something useful for you... ;) Q: What happens if my homie crashes a lot/flips/sunks the car? A: Only the vehicle is damaged! When the script detects a "the car won't be useful anymore" situation, it'll make your homies exit the car and run away, so they won't die. CJ has to escape himself ;) Q: I want to make a video using this mod. Can I do that? A: Yes, you can! You can do anything you want with my mod except stealing (stealing is publishing mods like if them were yours). If you upload the video on Youtube, include "switch driver mod" in the tags and I perhaps promote it here. Who knows :D Q: I want to read the mod source for learning purposes, but I can't decompile it. Can I have the source? A: Yes, you can. Ask me via PM and I'll give you the source. But I'll be watching your uploaded mods, so don't steal it.

Could you please add an enter car as passenger option? I think it would be useful if you don't have homies yet. Anyways, great mod! Thanks loads :)
There are another mods which let you do that, like http://www.gtagarage.com/mods/show.php?id=7486 . My idea for this mod was to extend a little bit the usefulness of recruiting homies, in a R* style :colgate:

A few things: When you're ripped from the passenger seat, by a rival gang member or a cop, you're glitched and can't re-enter cars. Not even dying solved it, only a re-load of the save. And whenever you set a destination that's a little bit far from you, the driver tends to drive in a dead straight line towards the marker. Even though I made sure that the option for such actions was off in the config. :p Just thought I'd give you some bugs to fix in the next version.
