A little window will pop up asking you if you want a backup before editing. Always select yes.
Wait for some seconds till it loads up.
You will see different categories on the left side of the window that you can edit. And on top you will have some categories to edit as well. There are certain features in every category you can explore by yourself.

Once that opens press zero on your numpad and a message will appear. Click continue and then click apply, then tap yes and give it some time.
Once it is done, you will see a little box pop up saying “Modifications successfully applied”. The advanced mode window will disappear, now go ahead and close the save wizard.
Plug in your USB into the PS4 and go to settings and then scroll down to the application saved data management. Under application saved data management, select the option saved data on USB storage device. Then further select copy to system storage.

Now run the game, it may take a long time to load, but once the loading is done and you get to the main cover of the game, go down to the story.
Then select “Load Game”.
And then find the save that we just modified. You should select the save which you have modified. So once you load into the game you will see that it looks a little different as you can see it is an animal here it is a buffalo as we set our ped as buffalo.
Remember whatever animal you change to could still ride a horse, that is quite funny. Who’s going to dump? Is that horse or buffalo anyway! That’s all for the new update.
