The GTA modding community has achieved a very critical step in bringing other city maps to GTA 5.

The PC version of GTA 5 has been a fertile ground for mods. But so far, all they’ve been able to do is fiddle with in-game models, change weapon behaviour, create or modify abilities.

But the game’s modding scene is about to get more interesting. GTA modder NTAuthority has made a guide to show anyone how to add custom maps to the game. This is huge! It means, for instance, you can play GTA 4’s Liberty City in GTA 5.

He’s using a utility called FiveM. The process is not too complex but the whole thing is still in its infancy. As a proof of concept, NTAuthority brought the city map from 1999’s Grand Theft Auto: London 1969 into GTA 5.
