The best GTA 5 mods

Grand Theft Space

Grand Theft Space transports players from GTA 5's urban sprawl to the cosmos above. At present, it boasts a functioning space shuttle, 11 planets, three moons and scant alien life. It's modest—but should it realise its potential, this work-in-progress open-source project could become the fully-customisable space sandbox we've always wanted, as it blends real life research with science fiction to great effect. 

Gang and Turf

Lucas Vinicius' Gang and Turf mod has been around for a while, but is still being grown and supported today. It adds GTA: San Andreas'  gang warfare system—in all its PS2-era, squad-based, territory-capturing mini-game glory. 

Paying close deference to its source material, Gang and Turf charges players with heading up their own murder squads—within which members are registered, crew colours are sworn by, and patches are defended. Team vehicles are assigned for squad-based transportation, and backup can be patched in by land or parachute when things get heavy. The results are suitably chaotic, particularly when multiple companies rough it out for the same stretches of land—or when another gang relocates their spawn point on the fly. Good luck when that happens!

Project London

One of the game's most ambitious mods, Project London aims to build a London-like city in Grand Theft Auto 5. And while the original GTA: London was set in the late '60s, this version is inspired by the modern city. 

Project London is a work-in-progress venture that's seen its creator crafting landmarks incrementally, before building the project out into a pseudo interpretation of The Big Smoke. Doing so involves a fair bit of Google Street-mapping, researching real life videos and photos, and a touch of artistic license.

Dragon Ball script 

From prolific Grand Theft Auto 5 superhero modder JulioNIB, the Dragon Ball script mod lets players to tear up the faux LA cityscape from land or sky, utlising a host of DB-authentic powers and moves as they go. Try the Kamehameha energy attack, Ki Blast, Teleport, and/or the iconic Destructo Disc maneuver for size this-a-way
