[How-to] Stream Add-on Peds with Folders

Hey. I’ve never seen a proper tutorial on streaming “streamed” peds. I’m making this post in case if someone planning to stream add-on ped clothing.

Requirements

  1. Advanced Renamer
  2. Knowledge of basic streaming (refer to this post)
  3. FiveM Element Club Argentum :cd: (Free if sv_maxclients 10 or lower)

For example, I’ll use Brucie which is a streamed ped.

Step 1
Drop .yft .ymt and Ped Folder in your stream Folder.
It should look like this

Step 2
Now we will use Advanced Renamer
Open it and press Add, after that, choose Directories
image
Now choose where’s your ped folder (mine would be ig_brucie folder) and press ok
image

Step 3
Everything should look like this now

Now you need to add the method

Press Add Method and choose Add
image
After that, type your ped’s name adding caret after it


You can see that files have a new name (because you choosed “add” method)

Now you can press Start Batch▶️

If everything went correctly, there would be no errors message. You can close the programm now.

Back to our resource folder. All files now should be named the way you set it.

You half-way done, nice!
Step 4

Now we will configure our peds.meta
To make this easier, use this example file
peds.meta (4.5 KB)

Replace <Name>example</Name> with your ped’s name (mine is of course ig_brucie)
Start your resource in server.cfg
And Done :slight_smile:

If you did correctly, you can spawn your ped via vMenu or other trainer.
Here is an image-proof, featuring a working model of Luis Lopez

Have Fun!

I have tried to do this, even downloaded some fivem ready streamed peds, But I am having an issue. They are all invisible. So I know they worked in gtav so must be something I am doing. Any ideas? Is there some setting on the server that would cause it ? I tried with luis_lopez but same result ruling out a bad model. So it is defiantly me or a setting / permission I am missing.

Try this:

  1. Check your peds.meta. There should be a line that says IsStreamedGfx and it needs to be set to true
  2. Make sure you have the requirements.

It is set to true, files have the prefix name^ in front of all files except the ytd, or y files. Just spawns invisible. I tried and so called fivem ready streamed ped and same result, I tried peds you had in your tutorial all come out the same. Since a fivem ready peds does it i wonder if it is not a server setting or something.

"What is a man that does not make his world a better place"

I also downloaded and installed a Lara Croft ped that was FiveM ready on the 5mods & lcpds website and had the same result. Makes Me wonder if there is a server setting in Nikyus server that i don’t know about. Or something like it.
I thank you for the time , I am new to this.

Link me your resource, so i can see what’s wrong.

resource_manifest_version ‘77731fab-63ca-442c-a67b-abc70f28dfa5’

files {
‘peds.meta’
}

data_file ‘PED_METADATA_FILE’ ‘peds.meta’

Ped meta

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>

You should link me everything as a file.

Have been trying but, not sure how to or keeps failing. Where do I upload from my computer to link ?
I tried responding to the email and attach file but failed.

__resource.lua (130 Bytes)
peds.meta (4.5 KB)

this is how the file is put together

Everything needs to be in stream folder. No subfolders

Tried that way as well but still spawns invisible, Since it is not a specific issue with Jane has to be something I am missing in resource .lua?
I did retry a fivem ready ped and installed per instructions and having the same result.
I am using a nikyus server, if that makes any difference. All non streamed peds work fine.
