Using Map Builder & Menyoo in FiveM

Notice: You can NOT build maps together in FiveM with this method. The only way would be to manually edit maps together from all parties.
Map Builder x Menyoo:
  • Install Menyoo normally in the GTA V folder.
  • Install Map Builder to Singleplayer and FiveM using the methods above.
  • Copy your Menyoo installation from the GTA V folder and paste it in the following locations.
  • Menyoo.asi (AppData > Local > FiveM > FiveM Application Data > plugins)
  • menyooStuff (AppData > Local > FiveM > FiveM Application Data > cache > subprocess)
  • Enable ScriptHookV inside of your server.cfg (sv_scriptHookAllowed 1)
  • Installation Complete. You can now use Menyoo in FiveM the same way you would in Singleplayer
