Ed Smith >Published Aug 3, 2022 >Grand Theft Auto VA GTA 5 mod updates Los Santos in a way that transforms the weather, interiors and lighting, as well as textures, to make it look closer to GTA 6 or, at the very least, to our own, giddily optimistic version of GTA 6.
NaturalVision (no spaces) is an ambitious overhaul of Grand Theft Auto 5. It's constantly updated by Jamal Rashid, also known under Razed. This latest version features the most impressive and complete overhaul of Los Santos we have ever seen. It includes dozens of new models, weather effects and particle effects, advanced shadows, and a myriad of visual tweaks and upgrades. Rainwater reflects off vehicle headlights. The snow on Mount Chiliad melts. There's even a rainbow visible from the lighthouse.
However, the biggest change is to the overall weather system. It now goes through various stages of transition, clearing and clearing rather than just moving from one state to another. Although it's not an issue, when you're in a difficult, atmospheric gunfight in a storm, then Los Santos suddenly bursts out in glorious golden sunshine, it can be a debilitating experience. This is something NaturalVision focuses on.
You can download the mod for free. It will keep you busy while we wait to hear more about GTA 6. Check out our guide to GTA 5 mods. Or, if you want something a little different, check out our list of top sandbox games for PC.
