I'm often asked about making the GTAV game look good. What mods are out there and how to use them. Here, I'll be showcasing just a few of the resources that are out there and available for use.


My computer is a bit older and doesn't have a ton of power.
That's more than fine. Even you can make your game look good, despite using a Gameboy Color as a system. A good way to go would be to start off at last in my opinion, with Reshade.
You can find and download reshade HERE.
ReShade exposes an automated and generic way to access both frame color and depth information and all the tools to make it happen. ReShade features its very own shading language and transcompiler, called ReShade FX. The syntax is based on HLSL, adding useful features designed for developing post-processing effects: Define and use textures right from the shader code, render to them, change renderstates, retrieve color and depth data, request custom values like timers or key states

Another option for you to be able to use is called VisualV. This way, even the old Nokia 3310 you call a computer should be able to play the game just fine, look great and have little to no FPS impact.
You can find and download VisualV HERE.
VisualV is a graphic overhaul modification for Grand Theft Auto V, bringing you a completely redone weather effects, edited modificators for areas/interiors, improved color correction and much much more to add some life to Los Santos and Blaine County as well as a fixed rendering code, so your playing experience will be more smooth and nicer.

The third option for your Samsung SmartFridge would be QuantV. It's pretty good, just like the others seen above. It's also pretty lightweight and should give the other options a good run for their money while keeping your frames at a steady pace.
You can find and download QuaintV HERE.
This is one of the most lightweight and realistic-looking graphic mods available with a deep AO effect, the nights are the best compared to the rest of the graphic mods.


The fourth, and final option for your toaster oven, because I'm not going to be doing this all day, is PRV, or Project Revive. This will give you some of those nice, colorful, and vibrant visuals that you seem to cry for. Great for taking screenshots and even recordings as this as well, shouldn't bog your game down much, if at all.
You can find and download Project Revive HERE.
If you're looking for exotic and colorful visuals, or if you take screenshots often then this mod is for you.

My computer is pretty decent. A more than enough power for most of this.
Well, moneybags McKenzie let's see what we've got here...For starters, we'll begin with NVE or Natural Vision Evolved. This is a little bit heavier than those others above, but can still make it work most of the time, even IF someone did happen to use an old TI-24 Calculator as their PC.
You can find and download NVE HERE.

Another good option for you is GTA V Remake. Not too terribly heavy, but not too light. Something decent in between that'll give you the visuals you want, love and crave.
You can find and download GTAV Remake HERE WITH BLUR or HERE WITHOUT BLUR Note that these include 4k Water and 4k Bokeh.



Ay cuh, I got one of dem high end systems bruh. Let's get it!
I mean, okay, if you say so. At this point, any of those aforementioned visual modifications will work perfectly for you, but if you insist on having a high-end system, let's go. We've got ENBs for you.
Understand, however, that ENBs are performance costly, so only use them if your hardware is capable. Unless you're content with 4fps because you thought you were hot shit. You will use ENBs IN COMBINATION WITH ONE of the above Graphic mods. You'll install the mod first, then the ENB afterward. But you have to have one of the mods first as they work in conjunction.

Anyway, we'll start you off with PRSA, or Photo-Realistic San Andreas. It's a fairly heavy ENB but it'll make your game look pretty damn amazing. It'll require some tweaking here and there to get it the way you like so having a modicum of Tech experience is a plus.
You can find and download PRSA HERE if you're using VisualV mod. And HERE if you're using QuantV or NVE.


Another ENB option is going to be NVR/NVE ENB. Works well if you've opted to use NVE.
You can find and download Natural Vision ENB HERE (For the install of this ENB, be sure you don't have any ENBs installed, then drag and drop the archive's contents into your GTA V installation folder.)




Now you're wondering: "How do I install this stuff?" Well, my illiterate friend, most of these come with a readme file that you should- you know...read. However, for everything, you'll simply first, be sure you don't have any visual mods installed on your RageMP, then drag and drop the "user_resources" folder where ragemp_v.exe is located, and confirm replacement if asked. If you don't know where your RAGEMP folder and files are, you probably shouldn't be bothering with any of this. The only thing out of this list that you might not install in this manner is the NVE/NVR ENB file as well as ReShade, as the Reshade will have its own readme files as well as step by step installation instructions.

Hope this helps somewhat, and don't screw your game over. Good Luck!
