Is there a tool that looks which ID's there are still free in VC? If so, where can I download it?
And what is the maximum number of ID's in VC?
And in SA?

Maximum ID numbers you can have in VC is 6500 as far as I know. You can download the Patch by Andy which gives you more ID numbers to use though. I haven't seen a tool that does such a thing in VC but that could be because I've never looked for one.

Once I update my patch, the maximum number will be 25700.

Try this tool: VC Object Test.
It was never meant to be released (only private testing), so don't expect a nice GUI. Put the path to your GTA VC installation in the edit box at the top and press Start.

The lines in the list start with the object ID#, followed by the dff name, and the number of occurrences (this does not include items set by the mission script!!). A [D] means it is a dynamic object (defined in object.dat) and [T] means it's a timed object (from tobj section).

To find free ID#s, look for [UNUSED]. The tool even groups ranges of free ID#s. But note that this version is limited to values from 300 to 7000 only, higher numbers will give you an error message.

Example from Myriad:
CODE
211 dynamic objects defined in object.dat

707 (+300) objects defined in all IDE files
- 41 of them are time objects (rest 666)
- 161 of them are dynamic (rest 546)

2487 objects defined in all IPL files
- 22 of them are time objects (rest 2465)
- 1256 of them are dynamic (rest 1231)

Most used: lamppost1 (425) - 276x
Second most used: veg_treea3 (443) - 117x
Third most used: dslplank (2277) - 85x

...

This tool is quite old and kinda slow. I might make a proper one for SA, with faster text parsing and some more features, if wanted.

Well, comparing the parsing algorithms to those used in my Map Viewer, it is slow(er). And here it takes 1,3 secs. tounge.gif
