[Release] Custom License Plate Image

Custom Plate Images For Vehicles

What Does This Do?

Well, simply put; you can change the background image for license plates! Once upon a time you were able to stream the vehshare.ytd file to do this, however this is no longer possible.

This method uses a FiveM Native function to replace the texture via script.

How Do I Change The Plate Background To A Custom Image?

It’s pretty simple :wink:

  1. Use the template files provided below (Ensure the size has a ratio equivalent to that of 600x350) 1200x700 is possibly your best bet.
  2. Customize the plate to your liking and save the file as a .png
  3. upload the plate to an image website (I personally use Imgur)
  4. Get the raw image file URL (URL should end with a .png)
  5. Paste your URL into the config.lua

Examples

Possibly Important Stuff

First off, here are the template files

  • Help Image | Raw – This is just an image to show where the license text will appear
  • Empty Template | Raw – The actual empty license plate image
  • [.PDN] Template – For those who use Paint.NET: this is the only file you’ll need

OR
Download the whole shabang here

  • – Direct download for every file (templates & script)

Other Notes

Without configuration, this script will give in-game license plates a texture glitch
I will not be providing assistance with the creation of textures for the plates


Hey! Read Me For Extra Plate Info

Special thanks to @GameTimeLewis for solving the multiple plate edit problem… (the one where you’d need 5 separate resources to do it) - Direct link will be updated once I arrive home

Another thanks to @ElusionPDX for finding another efficient way of using multiple plate textures:

Hey! Glad you like it. I’ve Updated the post if you take a look at the bottom, it will explain the general concept of how to do that!

I’ve updated the post, if you look at the end, it’ll give you a hand with that.

I added custom plate02_n file but it doesnt seem to change the position of the plate text :frowning: Anyways amazing mod

Can you post this to github? Or can I post it and reference this post?

Hey, Glad you like it! Unfortunately a custom plate_n file will not change the positioning of the plate text. I’m not sure if thats even a possibility.

I’ve created a Github repository per your request! I’ve also updated the post to include both the direct download and the github link.

Thanks for your interest
