LorePlates - Add-on Plates for Liberty, Alderney, and North Yankton 1.2


LorePlates version 1.2 by FoodSandwich


Version 1.2 (Dec 2023):
- Small update that fixes the installers, so the mod now works with the GTA Online Chop Shop DLC.

Version 1.1 (June 2023):
- added HD versions (1024x512) of all of the plates, including the six vanilla plates.
- added .oiv installers for both the HD and Standard Res plates. Manual installation is still included.
- changed all abbreviations for Liberty State from LB to its canon abbreviation LI (per Beseecher.net).


The default San Andreas license plates in GTAV are based on the standard issue California plates from the past sixty years. LorePlates is a collection of additional license plates from the same timespan, for the three other fictional states in the GTA Universe: Liberty, Alderney, and North Yankton. (based on New York, New Jersey, and North Dakota respectively). Each plate in this pack is a painstaking recreation of a real-life counterpart, combined with a conscious effort to emulate Rockstar's satire. If Liberty, Alderney, and North Yankton were fully accessible in GTAV, then LorePlates is an estimation of the kind of plates Rockstar would make for these regions.


You will need OpenIV and a trainer to use this mod.
OpenIV can be found at: openiv.com
Simple Trainer can be found at: gta5-mods.com/scripts/simple-trainer-for-gtav


1) Start up OpenIV.

2) Go to Tools --> Package Installer, and select one of the two .oiv installers.
- Standard Res will install plates with 256x128 pixel resolution, matching the ones from the vanilla game.
- HD will install plates with 1024x512 pixel resolution. It also updates the original 6 plates to HD versions.
- if you want to try the other version, just run the other installer and it will overwrite the previous files.
- IF YOU HAVE OTHER LICENSE PLATE MODS INSTALLED: use the manual installation (in the aptly named 'manual installation' folder)

3) Start up GTA5 and enjoy! Use your trainer to change your vehicle's license plates to the new ones.


I have included clean versions of the rusty plates in this pack. If you prefer the look of the clean plates, just drag all of the images from the manual installation/(HD or SD version)/extras/no rust folder included in this download, into the vehshare.ytd (location listed below), click "Ok," and save.

I have also included textures for a more accurate 80's San Andreas plate, which more-closely resembles the 1982 California plate than the default one that Rockstar made. To replace the default one, just drag plate04.png and plate04-n.png from the extras/SA accurate 80s plate folder into your vehshare.ytd, click "Ok," and save.

You are free to modify these to your heart's content. You may also use these in your multiplayer servers, IF you can get them to work (afaik FiveM doesn't support streaming carcols.ymt at this time).

However, do not redistribute or reupload this mod in any form without my explicit permission. I also ask that you don't involve this mod in any lootboxes or form of microtransaction. I can't stop you, but I will shake my head at you disapprovingly. People don't want to pay money to play games. Especially not in these trying times.


- WildBrick142 for the extremely helpful documentation on carcols files.
- Felix Bartling (Reditec) for creating OpenIV Package Creator.
- WorldLicensePlates.com for being a fantastic resource on real-world license plates.
