Real Cars is a totalconversion mod for Grand Theft Auto IV that replases all cars and other vehicles in game to real ones.
The mod only spawned taxis and afew other crapper cars, and since there is no way to uninstall the mod it has ruined my game completely.
The name should also be changed as saying REAL is deceptive since people will expect real equivalents of all the vehicles in the game, not just performance vehicles.
So this mod is nice. It does bring in a load of realistic cars; which is great for people who aren't clued up on importing them themselves. While it is just a compilation of new cars (including textures, models, and handling I believe) it is still incredibly unstable- often crashing moments after I begin to play.
Additionally no removal option is offered; meaning unless you've backed up your entire game directory, you're stuck with it short of reinstalling the game.
Of course it is great to drive around a game we all love in cars we all know, but the stability issues are the main reason I'm rating this mod at 6. Sort out a nice stable version, without the taxi/cop-car bug and it's a 10!
Great mod, the cars are fantastic.
However, this is still in BETA so there are some major problems:
Be EXTREMELY cautious when installing this MOD. This is an awesome mod IN DEVELOPMENT so keep some things in mind...
1) BACK UP your ENTIRE GTA 4 directory as this mod CAN NOT be uninstalled.
2) There are some major bugs that many people are experiencing after doing some research...
a) It may DISABLE windows live (which means no loading or saving games).
b) It may turn ALL CARS to TAXI, POLICE, or one other car ONLY.
c) CONTINUOUS CRASHING.
PLEASE KEEP THIS IN MIND.
I wanted to post this because I did not do the research before installing this mod and had to re-download everything and do a fresh install.
Great job though, keep up the good work.
