Streaming vehicles.meta for ONLY vehicle vanilla models



Can I stream from server a file vehicles.meta which contains vehicle vanilla models? Is it possible? I tried a lot of options. For add-on method works fine just vanilla models can’t be streamed from server why? Tested in client and works fine. I need stream this file from server because i want to change traffic value like This line set how many vehicles will be spawning in one of scenario. I can also fix gauges (dials) or correct position. I would really like add vehicle as add-on method on traffic but doesn’t work. Only replace cars are spawning.

At below I send the error while joining into server.

Here screenshot from __resource.lua

Here screenshot in folder of resource:

File vehicles.meta is unedited from vanilla game because i want to edit parameters in vanilla vehicles.
I would send code from vehicles.meta but it doesn’t make sense. You can self extract vehicle.meta from: GTAV/update/update.rpf/common/data/levels/gta5/vehicles.meta by using OpenIV

If someone know how to stream .meta files using vanilla models. Tell me please how to do. Thanks.


So why did you feel to input .meta file path properly in file { } but once you call data_file you go for a complete different approach.

data_file ‘VEHICLE_METADATA_FILE’ ‘code/vehicles.meta’


You have right but it is typo in code. Generally still doesn’t work.


I did spend over 1k hours in modding gta. I quickly made the screenshot. I’m tired, funny mistake^^


Just tried the vanilla vehicles.meta located in /common.rpf/data/levels/gta5 and as suspected it works fine. ¯_(ツ)_/¯

[ 150860] loading VEHICLE_METADATA_FILE resources:/testmeta/meta/vehicles.meta.

I wrote in topic about it. I tested this way but thanks for reply :slight_smile:


But maybe you found way to stream vehicles.meta with DLCs vanilla vehicles in client-side? For example car: tempesta or vagnes is from dlc. Where paste these files in client-side?


undoubtedly you know that vehicles.meta in game is more than one.


I just tried add code from vehicles.meta since DLC
Location where is tempesta D:\Games\GTA V\update\x64\dlcpacks\mpimportexport\dlc.rpf\common\data\levels\gta5 by using OpenIV

Then I tried paste into vehicles.meta without DLC vehicles.

hm ive been messing with meta files for a while know so i know your pain.
chances are that just 1 entry in the meta file is off. An item not properly closed or the the initdatas not closed etc. somethin like that .
