Modders ‘joemoo’ and ‘Nariman’ have released a pretty cool New York City mod for Grand Theft Auto 4. According to the duo, this mod replaces textures, models, and text to immerse players in a “virtualized New York Simulator“.
In other words, this is a complete name-conversion of Liberty City to New York City circa 2008. Below you can find all the things that this mod changes.
- Place names (down to the street level)
- Building textures
- Building models
- Subway and road signs
- Car decals
- Peds and characters
- Prop textures
- (Some) internet stuff
- English subtitles
You can download the mod from here. Below you can also find some screenshots, as well as a video (from an older version of the mod).
Speaking of GTA 4, I also suggest trying this mod that restores Grand Theft Auto IV’s multiplayer experience. There is also a cool mod that adds to the game vehicles from 1950-1993.
