[How-to] Stream vehicles/models from server to client


This tutorial is for people who host their own server and want to stream vehicles or models towards their players. Please note that this tutorial is written in the assumption you have already a basic server set-up and working. If not use the Support Forums for support on that.

  1. Open your main server folder, in this example the is path is C:\Server
  2. Navigate to C:\Server\resources
  3. In there you should see the following files;


Creating the stream folders

If you have the above sorted, you have confirmed you have a blank server. Now we need to add the stream path.

  1. Create another folder in \resources.
    You could give it any name but for this example I will name it \assets


  1. In this folder you should add another folder called stream.
  2. Also you will need to add a __resource.lua file.
    To create this file, just create a Wordpad file, rename it to __resource.lua it does not have to contain anything inside.

It should look like this:

Setting up streams

In the stream folder you can place the models you would like to stream.

  1. Inside C:\Server\resources\assets\stream create a folder wich has the same name as the model you want to stream.
    For this example we will stream the ambulance model.
  2. So should now have this path: C:\Server\resources\assets\stream\ambulance
  3. Place the .yft and .ytd files in here.


  1. You will need to make a new folder in \stream for each vehicle or model you wish to replace.


Add the stream files to your server.cfg

Put start assets after the other start <resource> entries

Might want to note that that cache in Server/cache/http-files/[streamedresourcename].rpf/.sfl will need to be deleted every time new files are added to be streamed otherwise the newly-added mods will not be streamed in game.

Sup, how do I stream maps? Is it a different process altogether? I’m really looking at trying to run Vice City on the game but just don’t know how. Any help would be appreciated.

@Boss I asked a normal question in the forum, why blocked my topic? I did not get the correct answer http://www.fivereborn.com/topic/355/how-to-add-add-on-cars-server-side

@Kaka_kz at this point you can’t use add-on cars. Only replace. That’s because this line;

\Grand Theft Auto V\update\update.rpf\common\data\extratitleupdatedata.meta

is not working.

@Boss thx

No one answered you because it’s been answered several times.

Open the .rpf with openiv. look for the car files. They look like this: “banshee.yft, banshee.ytd, banshee_hi.ytd”. The files in the add on pack will likely say bmwi8.ytd, or whatever addon car you’re trying to add.

Extract those files to a folder. Rename them to a car that exists in the game already. here’s a list.

Put those files in the resources/assets/stream folder you created for your server.

@Boss How do you add .meta files and upgrade files?

You can’t stream .meta files, but you can stream models of existing upgrade parts for existing cars in the game.

@alfieengland Yeah really! Thanks for the comment, it helped me a lot! lol

after I did this my server won’t even launch and yes I tried running as administrator
