There are many turn signal mods uploaded today, but most of them are manually turned on and off or have no turn signal sound, so I decided to create one to practice creating scripts.
The game has a turn signal sound, but it is very low pitched and only sounds for a small percentage of vehicles.
You can operate the turn signals of the car. It is possible to turn left, right, and turn hazard lights on and off.
The behavior of the turn signals used in real Japanese cars is reproduced as closely as possible, and a function is provided to automatically turn off the turn signals when the steering wheel is turned and returned. (The angle of the steering wheel can be adjusted in the ini file.)
Other details such as turning the steering wheel in the opposite direction of the turn signal will also turn off the turn signals, and the turn signals and hazard lamps are independent of each other.
Various sample sound effects related to turn signals can be used sample sound effects are included in the TurnSignalSounds folder inside scripts folder. The sound effects can be customized by replacing them with files of the same type and name. (You can enable/disable the sound effects in the ini file.)
When loading, the language displayed in the notification box can be selected between English and Japanese.
Copy the TurnSignalSounds folder, AdvancedTurnSignals.dll, and AdvancedTurnSignals.ini to the scripts folder.
Download Script Hook V, unzip it, and copy the two dll files in the bin folder to the Grand Theft Auto V folder.
Click ScriptHookVDotNet-v3.6.0-nightly.57.zip from the link below to download Script Hook V .NET, unzip the zip, and save the 7 files containing the string “ScriptHookVDotNet” to the Grand Theft Auto V folder. Please copy it to
In addition, the above two requirements must be met for operation. Please check the description section of each download page for details.
How to use
If Enabled is set to True in the ini file, it will be automatically loaded and enabled when the game is loaded.
When you get on the vehicle and press the key set in the ini file, the turn signal will operate.
If UseSound is set to True and the audio file is properly prepared, the sound effect will be played.
If Autooff is set to True and the settings are correct, the turn signal will automatically turn off when the turn is completed.
Since it determines whether to automatically turn off the direction indicators based on the angle of the steering wheel, I thought about making it compatible with ikt’s Manual Transmission Mod, but it turned out that it was no longer usable due to the GTA 5 update, so I decided not to implement it. I could not do it…
The reason it doesn’t work with the released version of ScriptHookV DotNet (3.6.0) is that it seems that the handle angle cannot be obtained due to a bug. This is fixed in the development Nightly build and should be used.
The sound effect (turn signal sound) does not stop even when the pause menu is displayed, and the sound effect continues even when GTA 5 is placed in the background. The reason for this is that the sound effects are played from the PC side rather than from the GTA5 side.
In addition, I have put together a code that pauses the sound effects when the pause menu is displayed, but since the script mod operation also pauses when the pause menu is displayed, the sound effects are played from the PC side. It may be that the sound effects cannot be controlled on the script mod side…
