Grand Theft Auto V Mod Lets You Sink Los Santos Underwater

Grand Theft Auto V Mod Lets You Sink Los Santos Underwater

Someone has made a "Tsunami" mode for the PS3 version of GTAV that sinks the entirety of Los Santos.

Even if Rockstar still hasn't released a PC version of Grand Theft Auto V, someone managed to make a mod for the PlayStation 3 version of the open world action game. Made by a user called "Bushigan," it lets players sink Los Santos underwater and you can even drive a submarine around the city, too.

Those planning to try this out, this YouTube link has instructions and a link to download the mod. Be warned, though, you will need a modded PS3 to make it work since it requires a few files to be moved around and such. For the rest of you not as daring, you'll have to contend yourself with watching the videos and hope those rumors of a PC port of GTAV rings true at some point.

Hopefully, this won't be the last mod for GTAV; and once Rockstar does release a PC version with mod tools, expect awesome mods such as this one to be the norm.

I admit, I'm nowhere near as talented as the people who creates mods to even attempt one. But if I could, I'd put a dinosaur in Los Santos just to see it stomp its way throughout the city. What would your dream mod be for Grand Theft Auto V?

That is great! I do hope a PC version comes though, we may see even better mods.

Still... there are much more audacious mods out there. As in beyond AAA quality ambitious. Why not report on them as well :P ?

I'd like to see a mod with giant airships slowly circling Los Santos and duking it out between the skyscrapers.

The real winner here is the modders taste in music. I immediately added hoodie allen to my playlist. I want a kraken in the game. or godzilla.

It would be the removal of all physics biases. None however are as bad as that godawful anti-rollbar implementation.

Requires a modded PS3, and it gets you banned.

Yeah, mod a game on console and it gets you banned. Somehow this isn't common knowledge Everyone has been posting these warnings after they got the mod. Mostly reddit and Kotaku.

Kinda pointless when a ban hangs over your head over such a basic mod.

Kotaku is also fucking hilarious when it talks about this mod, "its like a whole new game!" Yeah, no. A total conversion like Requiem is a whole new game. This is just for shits and giggles.

That is actually really cool, had no idea the water mechanics were this detailed.
Obviously there is that small hitch of getting instantly banned if you use the mod and taken to court, possibly get a visit from a Sony death squad... but still a cool mod.

I'd love that. Especially if it also replaced all planes in the city with the crop duster biplane.

I'd love a mod that changes all cars to fit a certain era. And allows you to replace all the radio with a custom soundtrack, So I could drive around in 70s cars with 70s music playing, for instance.

Pacific Rim the mod.

The best change I could think of for the game would be to drastically reduce the input lag for the controls. Yes I'm a bit salty about that.

Actually the first thing that came to mind was dragons. Flying around the city randomly attacking people, waiting for you to shoot them with RPG's and LMG's and then absorbing their souls so you can shout at objects and make them fly off.

Actually actually, screw it I'd take that over performance upgrades.

in san andreas there was a mod that allowed you to change the water height and wave high easily. ever since then my dream mod for any game was changing water level in the world with npcs reacting appropriately. this looks like it may jut be one steop towards this, i love this modder now!

now i havent tried it in gta 5, but when i did similar stuff in san andreas and used it smartly (didnt just sink the continent) and then tried to play the game with that it was indeed very gamechanging and i enjoyed it. not for everyone sure, but i can see the reaction.

It's GTAV, Roland Emmerich edition... Do that and freeze the water. That'd be perfect!

Now if only they would combine it with this:

Then this can be the theme everytime you start the game:

Coolz, really hope that the PC version of GTA V won't suck like GTA IV's port did...

But yeah cool mod and makes me wonder what other crazy mods could make there way onto PC version

I'd just like access to a console that would allow me to do simple, yet amusing things with what's already present in the game.

Simple pleasures such as disabling the invisible boundaries around population centres which animals don't pass, spawning a cougar in downtown LS or spawning a shark in a swimming pool, or a turn all traffic into one type of vehicle command, such as Crop Dusters, would also make for some amusing mayhem.

As for actual mods, an Every NPC Is Dr. Ray De Angelo Harris mod would be pretty amusing, especially if it came with a Pedestrian Riot/Horde Mode.

Another simple, yet amusing mod, would be to give the Epsilon Robes the power to engulf NPCs in purifying flames (or a myriad of other random effects like the Wabbajack, e.g. drunk, explosion, soaking wet, low gravity, rage mode, electricity etc.) when you greet them and they utter the Holy Words "Kifflom" in response.

This looks cool for about 20 seconds, but doesn't seem like it'd actually be fun enough to merit the effort.

That said, a post-apocalyptic flooded city could be a great setting for a game that was actually designed around that idea.

P.S. Thanks

Wait, I thought someone figured it out for the 360? Tried to find out in the video I first saw it in

but Robbaz didn't say what console he did it on, and YouTube is being supper difficult with me right now, so I can't tell when button prompts pop up.

When he takes a selfie, those are PS3 button prompts.

P.S. Thanks
