Download NEW Colorful HUD (Weapons, Radio & Map Blips) V1.0.3095.0

NEW Colorful HUD (Weapons, Radio & Map Blips) 1.0.2545.0

You need the latest GTA5 1.0.2545.0 patch for this mod to work. The location of the textures changed with this update, it will not install on older patches of the game.

Hello!!! This mod adds colored Radio, Weapon and Map Blips to the game HUD!!!

The following mod is based on Colorful HUD (Weapons, Radio & Map Blips) by “POLOPAI”. I am not taking any credit for the work that he has done. I simply colored the weapons that have been released by Rockstar since the last time “POLOPAI” updated his mod.

I also suggest that you use this mod together with “Remastered Old Gen Radar” from @Alex106
