Codewalker for FiveM
Codewalker is the professional tool for creating FiveM maps, MLOs and environments. It allows the placements of objects via drag & drop! If you want to place an object (e.g. a bench on a street), you can do this. Save your file as .YMAP to import it to your server.
Codewalker requires the PC version of GTAV installed, and .NET framework 4.5.2
Why is it called Codewalker? Do I need to write code? No, it’s just the name.
