Thanks for downloading my mod.

This mod turns the car damage the closest to the reality as possible. Cars now get deformed as in reality.

- No more unrealistic car deformation.
- The times where you used to hit a car and keep rolling at normal speed like nothing happened are gone.
- You can now get your car deformed only by hitting a ped or a street light or a toll barrier.
- Car handling was also changed according to Realistic Driving & Flying Skills mod made by Killatomate.


1) Make a backup of the original file called "handling" located on LocalDisk/Programs/RockstarGames/GTAIV/Common/Data
(NOTE: The file is only here if you have installed the game with the normal/automatic installation. If you have chosen to install the game in other folder, go to that folder and then acceed to Common/Data and the file should be there. Anyway, these last 2 folders are at your GTAIV installation directory)

2) Copy the file "handling" that comes with this mod (common/data folders) and paste it on the same folder that the original (LocalDisk/Programs/RockstarGames/GTAIV/Common/Data).

3) It will ask you to replace the files. Click YES.

4) Open the folder «Paste this file at these subfolders» that comes with the mod. Go through the other sub-folders (GrandTheftAutoIV/pc/data) and copy the file called «filelist.pak» to the respective directory: LocalDisk/Programs/RockstarGames/GrandTheftAutoIV/pc/data.

5) Close everything and run the game.

6) Enjoy!

This mod works with the latest RockstarGames patch . So it won't block you the MP. For that, you need to install this mod:

Download it here and install it as the NotePad file says so.

Have fun!

Mod made by RinuExtreme.

This mod cannot be under any circumstance SOLD!


However, you can customize it at your own risk and decision. You can share it. I repeat, SHARE IT, NOT SELL IT!

Ask the nutters in The Sims' community. They pay for 'mods' all the time.
