GTA 5 Weather Settings Low End PC

I know this will look strange and new to GTA 5 gamers. Well, GTA 5 gives you that realistic feel when the weather in the game is beautiful. If the weather is good in the game, you will notice that the textures and graphics are solid and beautiful, even if you use the lowest settings in GTA 5. But when you use weather like foggy, overcast, and more, you won’t experience that realistic feel like that of a high-end gaming PC, PS4, Xbox SERIES, or PS5, which isn’t cool for a low spec gamer.


STEP 1: Open Menyoo Tools in GTA 5, or Native Trainer. If you don’t know how to download and install Menyoo Tools, click here.

STEP 2: Go to Weather Options, set to ExtraSunny

set to extrasunny

STEP 3: Go to Time Options, Set hour to 10 in the morning, then Minutes to 5 (10:05).

Time settings

  • Tip: If you don’t want the time to change, simply pause the clock time in Menyoo Tools.

After changing the game time to these settings, you will see the game Graphics more clear and realistic.
