Rockstar has released a patch for the PC version of Grand Theft Auto V, and users are reporting that the update is breaking user-created mods. Patch 350.1’s changelog deals primarily with small bugfixes and stability changes.

  • Vehicles in your garage can no longer be accidentally replaced with vehicles from the street. For details, see this page.
  • Improved stability and fixed several crashes and hangs while transitioning between Jobs in GTA Online.
  • Fixed an issue where certain players were unable to exit their garages while inside of a personal vehicle.
  • Fixed an issue where the game could freeze if you were robbing a store while someone else was attempting to buy snacks there.
  • A rare issue has been fixed where some players received a “Purchase Failed” error when attempting to buy apartments.
  • Fixed an issue where players would be asked to quit the game while using text chat in Golf and pressing the “E” key.
  • GTA Online characters can now be added to your shortlist in the Rockstar Editor.
  • Fixed several clipping issues that occurred when taking Snapmatic selfies.
  • One-on-One Vehicle Deathmatches in Free Roam will now properly spawn all participants in vehicles.
  • Fixed a Steam-only issue where you could not alt-tab back into GTAV if you alt-tabbed out while the Steam overlay was active.
  • Various fixes to bring improved patch download speeds.
  • Improvements to matchmaking so players that have good connections to each other are matched together more frequently.
  • Fixed a Steam-only issue where players could not use Mexican Spanish as a subtitle language.
  • General stability fixes for director mode and video editor.
  • Various crash fixes.
  • Fixes for issues caused by launching the game in offline mode.

Grand Theft Auto V does not officially support mods, but many enterprising users have created various cosmetic and gameplay-related mods. Modder Alexander Blade has released a library called Script Hook V that allows for scripts and other mods to be run, but as of the 350.1 patch, the engine does not work. GTA5-Mods reports that Blade is currently updating Script Hook to work with the latest patch, but it is not clear if this was an intentional change on Rockstar’s part. TechRaptor has reached out to Rockstar, but has not received a response as of this writing, and will update this article if we receive a response.
