Preface
Having gone about playing the Grand Theft Auto 3 story in the past week or so, I have found that mods are an implicit requirement for even navigating Grand Theft Auto 3's menus. On one hand, I can completely understand why this has happened: GTA3 is an old game, and R* have had other things to focus on - but on the other hand, it should be a crime to allow this to happen to a classic!

This is where GTA3 Simple Pack comes in. GTA3 Simple Packs sets the standard for two collections of mods, a base pack, and an extended pack. In using either of these packs, you should be left with a vastly improved Grand Thef Auto 3 experience than you previously had. Doing this, while retaining the look and feel of GTA3, just making that slight bit more compatible with modern hardware, as a lot has changed since GTA3's launch.
Base Pack
The base pack simply defines a collection of mods which will ensure that you can have an experience of which you can go about playing GTA3 as it was designed, not adding in any extra features.

Mods
Extended Pack
The extended pack, extending on the base pack, defines a collection of mods which will benefit some, but not all. In the spirit of keeping the essentials, and the non-essentials serperate - I kept them so.
Afterthoughts
I made this guide with Grand Theft Auto 3 1.1 in mind - because of this, a number of mods that I would have included I couldn't use, and experience. From having a look at the mods, and their functionality, I would recommend the following if you use 1.0:

You may also want to go about installing Liberty City Leftovers[gtaforums.com] if you have both the time and patience required to install it.
More Simple Packs
I am a big fan of older games, they tend to focus more on gameplay, and story than graphics - like games do today. Many of these games, like GTA3, require mods to play nicely with modern hardware.
