In the ever-evolving landscape of video games, few titles have achieved the enduring cultural impact and player devotion witnessed by Grand Theft Auto V.

Since its release in 2013, it has grown exponentially, earning billions upon billions, earning numerous game awards, and making a bunch of communities and memories to remember.

There is one community that stands out above all the rest — the GTA 5 modding community. They have done it all - from creating realistic cars to creating new, fully explorable interiors and even developing custom missions and heists.

How GTA 5 Modding Came To Be

In the early years of Grand Theft Auto 5, there were no modding tools to play around with until 2015 rolled around and the PC release of the game came out.

A few months after the PC release of the game, essential modding tools came out like OpenIV, ScriptHookV, And Community ScriptHookV. This opened a new door of creativity for fans of Grand Theft Auto 5. People were eager to test out the boundaries of the game and see what was thought to be impossible.

The First GTA 5 Mods To Be Released

At first, the mods were light and not too serious. This could have included simple texture changes, basic scripts to alter player stats, or uncomplicated mod menus allowing users to teleport around the map and more.

As the years went on, the modding community had evolved and was doing much more complex things like:
