Realistic Driving V v2.3

Realistic Driving V
successor of the popular GTA IV driving mod

Supported GTAV versions: 1.36, 1.38, 1.39+

This mod changes driving physics in GTA V to be as realistic as possible. Physics definitions for every single vehicle have been created from scratch utilizing every single available parameter. Development started on May 13 2015 and took 24 months, 1400+ hours. Driving physics were created for each of the 322 vehicles individually, spending an average of 3.3 hours on each vehicle. Every single change made by this mod has been MEASURED INGAME and CONFIRMED to be working as intended. Hence the long development phase. No theory crafting, no assumptions. This mod is based on hard facts only.
Most striking features of this mod:

  • Realistic driving physics (proper tire grip on different surfaces, traction curve, slip angle)
  • All driveable surfaces have reworked properties
  • Realistic offroad driving (giving the HUGE offroad areas in GTA V a purpose, hillclimb, dirt track)
  • Performance of every single vehicle matches its real-life counterpart perfectly (acceleration curve, top speed, braking, grip, handling characteristics, wheelspin)
  • Huge improvements to motorcycles
  • Improvements to other physics (eg making it possible to ram police vehicles, slightly more realistic PIT maneuver)
  • automated brakes have been disabled for every single vehicle
  • Police cars dont drive like on rails anymore, more realistic physics are applied to their vehicles
  • Alternative "Scaled Topspeed" version of this mod, offering speed governor and brake assist
  • Option for increased vehicle deformation

Custom cars:
This mod was developed specifically for vanilla 3D-models. Custom car models have completely different center of mass and wheelbase. Making this mod work with all custom cars is impossible. Using custom cars will have a very noticeable negative impact on car handling. Dont complain about things that i cannot possibly fix. please.
