This mod installer makes it easier to load up mods without knowing too many technical details about how to patch or manage directories. While the manual method isn't too difficult for skilled computer users, the creators of San Andreas Mod Installer realize some users have issues with navigating through a lot of folders to get to what they want. Even veteran players sometimes like automating processes, and this mod installer works well for that.

While Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas has a lot to offer, it's been a few years since the game was released. Plenty of newer games have made a splash in the same genre, but the setting of San Andreas is unique. If you want to add extras to your gameplay, try using this installer rather than adding mods manually, and you'll get out of your save files and into the game more quickly. You can even locate specific mods to add or remove as needed without having to delete the entire directory or mess with troublesome renames.

Which mods are worth installing? San Andreas: Snow Edition is a great download that gives a beautiful dusting and clumping of snow across the entire game. The virtual snow even performs like the real thing, changing the physics of the game and allowing some fun slipping and sliding while driving through a crime-infested winter wonderland.

Do you like zombies? Some people feel they're getting a little overdone, but if the walking dead are still your thing, there's a San Andreas Zombie Alarm mod that brings hordes of angry zombies into the world of the living for revenge.

If you're a concerned parent who wants to get rid of a few specific and explicit details within San Andreas, this mod installer can load a mod that removes the "Hot Coffee" sex scene exploit. There may still be ways around it with other tools, but this mod removes the scene completely.

Do you want to play multiplayer San Andreas? Use the multiplayer mod to get started in the online world that may still have a few people exploring it even years after the game's release. Not only can you play San Andreas with friends across the Internet, but you can join existing servers with people ready to shoot you and steal your car.


  • For people who need help installing mods, this is a fairly straightforward way to get the job done. It doesn't leave much of a mess, and many of the mods often need a way to be identified before deleting random folders for troubleshooting.
  • For its intended purpose, the Grand Theft Auto Mod Installer does exactly what it needs to.


  • Double-check your mod installer for version compatibility. This installer isn't for other Grand Theft Auto games. If you're looking for a different part of the GTA series, take a look around Softonic and find the mod installer that works with your desired game.
  • San Andreas isn't the top game anymore, so you may not get much use out of the multiplayer feature without friends who are also revisiting the game.
