VisualVanilla [SP | FiveM | RAGE MP] 2.0 for SP (FINAL)


Experience the vivid skies of the city of Los Santos and surrounding hills, countryside, and beaches in VisualVanilla: An alternate take to the great VisualV that aims to stay faithful to Rockstar Games' vision of "that thing, that magic" for the world of Grand Theft Auto V.

DISCLAIMER: The screenshots provided were taken during the mod's development phase, so things may or may not look different in-game (in a good way, of course!).

I always dreamed for a graphics mod that subtly improves graphics without altering Rockstar Games' idea of how the game's setting will feel like for the players. VisualV and Old Gen Visual were my go-to mods, but almost always, I alternate between them and Vanilla GTA V every time I play or mod the game because something always felt lacking. After a few years of waiting for the perfect graphics mod to suite my eyes, I finally took matters into my own hands. If you're like me, who believes in subtlety in order to make this already-beautiful game bearable to look at and play for its age, then I hope VisualVanilla doesn't disappoint.

VisualVanilla should be compatible with any other mod that does not replace the same files as this one does. Graphic mods, in particular, must automatically be assumed to be incompatible for this is a STANDALONE graphics mod in itself which may or may not work well alongside others (for it may completely overwrite the files) such as VisualV, Old Gen Visual, NaturalVision Evolved/Remastered, RadianceV, MVGA, etc.

This mod is standalone. Nothing but a clean install of Grand Theft Auto V is required to make it work.
  • A copy of Grand Theft Auto V, recommended to be running the LATEST patch, "v1.64 or v1.0.2699.0 (Los Santos Drug Wars)" as of time of this writing. Regardless, it should work on older versions of the game without any problems
  • OpenIV
  • OpenIV.ASI (for the mods folder)
  • ASI Loader (Can be installed from OpenIV -> Tools -> ASI Manager)

For Singeplayer:
VERY IMPORTANT NOTE: Folders with numbered names/labels need to be installed in that very order.
  1. Make sure you have 1) OpenIV installed with ASI Loader, and 2) Enabled the "mods" folder with OpenIV.asi
  2. Right click the .OIV Package, select properties, "Open with..." then select OpenIV
  3. Open the folder named "1. Core Mod," then Double-click on the .OIV package.
  4. Click "Install" then select "mods folder" as the installation location.
  5. At this point, you may run and enjoy the game! HOWEVER, if you wish to discover other stuff to your liking, you may proceed to the "2. Configure it!" folder and configure the mod to your liking. More information below.

For RAGE Multiplayer:
Put the CONTENTS of "RAGEMP Folder" where "ragempv.exe" is, confirm replacement if asked. (If it doesn't work, it means that client-sided mods aren't enabled by the server you play on. Ask the developers to enable them.)

For FiveM:
  1. Click "2.0 for FiveM" on the left side panel of the modpage to download the mod.
  2. Open the archive with any archiving tool (7zip, WinRAR, etc.)
  3. Drag and drop .RPF files into C:\Your_Username\AppData\Local\FiveM\\mods (In order to uninstall, simply delete the .RPF files you dragged and dropped in the\mods folder)
  4. Boot up the game and enjoy the mod!
