I have had VC for a long time but never thought there would be mods for it. I am unsure how to download them. When I download the zip file, I know how to chose the extract feature, but where do I extract to? There are no files or folders that I can see for me to extract these zip files to that correspond with what the download instructions say. For instance I do not have a vice city mod manager file or at least I don't know where it is. From what I can see in the game menu, there is no where that you install downloaded mods. In many other PC games when you download mods they go right to the game or to your game disc. Perhaps my unfamiliarity with zips is causing me to make this harder than it is. Can anyone help? Thanks!

Well Iam sure others do it different but I just extract to desk top and if its a good enough mod it will have a self installer for it like an exe. and you can then just click that and it will install itself. If no installer is there, then you gotta figure out which file goes where. Normally you can just fallow the read me instuctions after you extract them and it will tell you what to do.

gta3vcfiles.com is where I downloaded from. I am trying to get any and all files. I downloaded from mods,buildings, etc. but do not know how to install them in the game. I am unsure how to extract the zip file to whatever file or folder or whatever you need to do to make it install in the game.

Most files come with a readme, or shpuld, I really cant be much more help unless your specific.

In WinXP, just double click on a zip folder to open it, and extract them, a readme should be in them also, that tells you how to install.
