Design Your Own Mission (DYOM) is a mission mod for Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas created by PatrickW and Dutchy3010. It allows users to create a new mission ingame, without writing a single line of SCM script. The mod works as a mission pack.


Installation is very simple. Just copy the MPACK folder from the archive to your "San Andreas User Files" (in My Documents). To add downloaded missions, just copy the DYOMx.dat files into "San Andreas User Files". CLEO 3/4 is needed for this modification to Save/Load missions.

Mod Popularity

The mod is considered to be very popular among modders. Currently there are over 40000 user-made missions.

The mod popularity had given its authors the idea of making a contest the goal of which is to create the best mission using Design Your Own Mission mod. Each contest lasts for a certain period of time, then the jury consisting of the mod authors and the winner of the previous contest choose the best missions from the ones that were submitted. After that the members of GTAForums.com and GTAForum.nl vote for the winner.

Since the second the contests have a specific theme the missions should be made on.
