Better Advanced Meta 0.4

About This File


This mod aims to improve and tweak the various meta/data files within GTA for a more realistic, less insane game environment. Currently, this mod alters/changes the following:


  • Completely removes ambient police pursuits.
  • Tones down other built-in ambient crime events.
  • Attempts to stop random peds stealing your car. (I rarely noticed this in my own game, so I cant be sure the fix works. Feedback welcomed!)
  • Fixes many incorrect AI Handling settings - now sports/super cars will be driven as such, while junky cars are more likely to be driven slow.
  • Increases vehicle damage multipliers for more realistic crashes. PIT's are much more likely to be successful, but also more dangerous without a good ram bar.
  • Reduced vehicle drag across the board, allowing vehicles to reach higher top speeds. Additional tweaking to actual top speeds / drive force will come in future updates.
  • Reduced brake efficiency across the board to give cars a more realistic feel. This results in more lively traffic in a number of ways, from minor (and major) fender benders to an increase in red-light runners.


I am working on many more improvements and will likely release an update once I've got a chance to thoroughly test these other improvements.

What's New in Version 0.4


  • Updated for latest version of GTA.
  • Some improvements to police pursuit AI (still working on this).
  • Various adjustments to AI scenarios, including reduced "mass panic" when aiming.
  • Reduced spawn rate of sharks for better ocean-faring experience.
  • Reduced deformation multiplier slightly.

YES! So happy to finally have this back in my game again! :D Makes driving much more challenging (realistic) and adds a whole lot of fun to not just pursuits but the game in general. Also so happy to finally say goodbye to those ambient police pursuits again that just seem to have a way of wrecking every scene. Highly recommend!
