Abandoned Vehicle Cleanup v2.0 by Prof_Farnsworth

This mod will make a crew recover abandoned vehicles in the player's area (vehicles with no driver or a dead driver). If no abandoned vehicles are found, they may steal vehicles off of the street, from the dealership, etc. The criminals will occasionally get into shootouts with the cops.

VERSION 2 UPDATES: - Crew now has a chance of spawning with a rocket launcher and armour.
		 - Increased default likelihood to steal random vehicles (can be adjusted in .ini).
		 - Optimized code
		 - Crew will now "loop" around the vehicle less, are more likely to stop next to it.

Installation: Place the "" and "crime_city.ini" files into the "scripts" folder of your root GTA IV directory.

In .ini Settings file, the chance for them to STEAL random cars off the street is adjustable (they will still recover all abandoned vehicles regardless of this setting). Enter any integer above 3 to change the likelihood of random theft. ( Default is 35. Lower means it will happen more, higher means less. WARNING: Do not set below 3 or script may crash!)

This will also affect how often they steal your vehicle.

Known bugs: Occasionally, car thief will give up ride for another.

BONUS - Also included in the archive is a small script which makes AI drivers drive over dead bodies instead of stopping at them. It is not perfect, but it stops 30 car pile-ups from one ped dying in the street.

To Install, place the file "" into your scripts directory.

COPYRIGHT: Please do not upload this mod anywhere else. If you use this mod in one of your own, please be kind enough to give credit.

Hi, great idea ! It works with 1.0.4 but sometimes cars are spawning in front of you. It's annoying. And also, when you kill the passenger, he sometimes respawns in the car. That's why I'm currently not using your script.

thans man, Abandoned Vehicle Cleanup is working in my game~ i am not sure , in the game right now i can see a man and a woman who shoot in the street with the guns?? is this a part of your Abandoned Vehicle Cleanup mod's effet?? because before there is not something like that? your mod called crime city? it is just steal the car or there is the other crime action?

@noczh - I have tried it using GTA IV version 1.0.4 and It works fine. If you would like to find an earlier version of to try, you can, but it should work as is.

the newest version can't work with my 1.04 gta4 so can you tell me the number of the version who have the siren toggle function in the fist time when is update ? and then i will try it
Prof_Farnsworth commented over 9 years ago:
@noczh - Have you tried using a newer version of It looks like the version you're using doesn't have the siren toggle function. I think they are backwards compatible, try using the newest version and the error should be gone.

for this stealing car mod it like that all the time , for your Ragdoll Bullets mod there is no problem my game version is 1.04 and ScriptHookDotNet v0.893 BETA Script Hook 0.3.0 i can't find a perfect version for ScriptHookDotNet and Script Hook for 1.04 gta4. there is 14 scripts in my game , and with ScriptHookDotNet v0.893 BETA Script Hook 0.3.0 , they work great all the time but i really like your idea for stealing car mods, so can you fix this or help me to find out what should i do? please

@noczh - Does this error happen all the time? This is an error inside the scripthook itself, not in the mod (although it looks to be). If it happens all the time, which versions of mod tools and GTA IV are you using?
