This mod allows you to save cars wherever you want, and also keeps the last 3 cars you entered from magically disappearing. It creates markers on the map that shows where your cars are; the markers are small and colour-coded.
The Author stop updating this mod, you can download other mod with same feature such as I’m Not MentaL’s Persistance Mod [.NET]
No more vanishing custom cars! No more lack of garage storage! With this mod, the world is your garage!
The ‘last entered cars’ feature can be optionally disabled (either by configuration file or in-game hotkey).
How it works
It manages the vehicles in three ways:
The saved vehicles that are spawned on the map (at the positions they were saved) will be marked in green on the radar and will despawn when you get far. This only affect the vehicles that you didn’t drive (see below).
The saved vehicles that you drive will blink their marks and won’t despawn, but after you have 3 of them, the former ones will revert back to their saved positions (and despawn if you’re far from their saved positions). This is necessary to avoid over-usage of VRAM.
The random vehicles you entered will be marked in orange and won’t despawn, but just as the above, after there are 3 of them on the map, the former ones will be allowed to ‘despawn’ (but won’t necessarily despawn immediately).
The saved vehicles are saved to a file in the disk and will be there after you exit and relaunch the game.

How to install
1. This mod also required LUA Plugin for Script Hook V and Script Hook V .Net and Script Hook V + Native Trainer to activate.
2. Make sure you have folder "scriptsaddins" in the game’s main folder, where GTA5.exe is located. Example: D:SteamsteamappscommonGrand Theft Auto Vscriptsaddins
3. Copy the file "szabopersist.lua" and into the folder “scriptsaddins”.
4. Delete the other scripts in that folder if you're not using them.
5. You MUST open the lua file in any plain text editor and set the directory where the vehicles data file will be saved. Read the commented lines on top of that file please.
How to know if this mod is working?
Since many people are having problems with the configuration, here is a clarification:
YOU NEED TO CONFIGURE THE MOD! Open the szabopersist.lua file with a plain text editor (e.g.: Notepad) and change the lines of the configurations.
The 'savepath' must contain slashes (these: / ) and NOT backslashes (NOT these: ).
Both the 'savepath' AND the 'platetext' values must be between quotation marks, like as follows:
local savepath = "C:/Users/John Doe/Documents/Rockstar Games/"
local platetext = "JOHNNY"
AND NOT LIKE THIS:
local savepath = C:/Users/John Doe/Documents/Rockstar Games/
local platetext = JOHNNY
THE SAVEPATH MUST HAVE A TRAILING (AT THE END) SLASH, HERE ARE EXAMPLES OF WRONG VALUES:
local savepath = "C:UsersJohn DoeDocumentsRockstar Games" - BACKSLASHES
local savepath = "C:/Users/John Doe/Documents/Rockstar Games" - NO TRAILING SLASH
In the future I'm going to try to find a way to default the path to the "Documents" folder or some other safe place, until then, it's mandatory the configurations must be correct. If it doesn't work, paste your configurations here. (Also, read the FAQs)
IMPORTANT!! YOU NEED TO CHANGE THE CONFIGURATIONS IN THE FILE:
-- CONFIGURE THE KEYS BELOW. Further down you find a list of the codes
local savekey = 96
local reloadkey = 110
local disablemodkey = 109
local modenabled = true -- SET TO false if you don't want the persistence to be enabled by default - does not affect saved
--vehicles, this only applies to the 'persistent' ones you drove, which can cause problems in missions
-- CONFIGURE THE PATH WHERE THE FILE WILL BE SAVED. NOTE: Make sure Windows allows writing there.
-- 99.9% of the problems will be due bad data on the line below OR Windows permissions nonsense.
-- IMPORTANT!: Double-check the slashes (/) (they're NOT backslashes () ) and the LAST SLASH too!
-- IMPORTANT!: The path must be between quotation marks ("). Use the default value for reference.
local savepath = "C:/Users/Alan/Documents/Rockstar Games/"
-- CHOOSE A COOL TEXT TO APPEAR IN THE LICENSE PLATES OF YOUR SAVED VEHICLES! (Max. 8 dig.)
-- IMPORTANT!: The text must be between quotation marks ("). Use the default value for reference.
local platetext = "MYPLATE"
local useplates = true --change to false if you don't want the plates to change
