Make GTA San Andreas Look More Like GTA IV

May 1st, 2008 by WordPlop

Although Grand Theft Auto IV is out, many people won’t be able to play it because they don’t own an Xbox 360 or a Playstation 3. So for those of us with a PC version of Grand Theft Auto San Andreas, here are some mods that will make it look more like Grand Theft Auto IV.

You might need a good computer to run some of these mods, as they use much higher quality textures. I have an 8800GTS, 4GB of memory, and a Core 2 Duo processor, yet the game still lags a bit for me when in heavy fog in a crowded area with all graphical settings turned to maximum.

Be careful when modding your game, as it might corrupt your install. If anything gets corrupted, you will probably just have to reinstall, but you might lose your saved games. You are on your own when installing mods, and I am not responsible for any data loss that you may cause.

San Andreas Retextured 3

This mod includes textures for most everything in San Andreas. It also includes some new sounds for the weapons and high resolution weapon textures. I wasn’t able to test out the car quality and sounds as I have custom cars already installed. This mod left my previous modded cars untouched. This is one of the best mods because it is so detailed. Train tracks look photo realistic in San Fierro, and the textures everywhere are very high quality and high resolution. The new weapon sounds are more realistic too, and the weapon skins are great. Download this mod here.

San Andreas Multiplayer

This is a well known mod that gives San Andreas a multiplayer option. SA-MP, in short, lets you play with up to 200 people from anywhere in the world. There are several fun game types. This mod has been a little buggy for me, but it’s still a ton of fun. But the amazing thing is you get all of this in just around 3.5MB – now that’s some great coding! Download this mod here.

10x Draw Distance

This mod increases the draw distance ten times. Pretty self explanatory. This makes the game more realistic. This one will really slow down your system, especially if you’re flying in the clouds. Download this mod here.

Individual skins for vehicles, aircraft, buildings, and everything else

You can skin each car, boat, airplane, helicopter, person, building, and just about everything else in Grand Theft Auto San Andreas. Check out The GTA Place for hundreds of individual skins.

These mods will greatly increase the visual quality of Grand Theft Auto San Andreas. Of course it still won’t be like GTA IV since it has new physics, a new city, and many more new features, but at least now you won’t have to cringe when looking at the terrible (by today’s standards) graphics in San Andreas.

If you know of any other good GTA San Andreas mods, post them below.

    Hi guys, just wondering – how can I install these mods? Is there anything special that I need to do, or can I simply load the mods from inside the game?

    And also, does GTA SA work ok for windows 7 64 bit? I am about to go out now and buy GTA SA
