Start your game as a random character in a random scenario, or a saved character in no scenario you decide.

All work is my own based on research through gta modding forums. If you want to show some support for this and my other mods please subscribe to my youtube channel, you can also find videos and links to other mods I've made for games like Black & White2, and Fallout, I will be also be adding links and videos to mods I've made on steam at some point.
