|6. Mod tools! What is meant by "mod support?"|
This was the question I really wanted to ask. First off, Rockstar will not ship any tools themselves. He did say that it will be an extremely smooth transition in that the tools used in Vice City should work perfectly with San Andreas.
That's a blatant lie! As we've already learned from the PS2 version, they changed several essential binary file formats, that were the same for GTA3 and VC (img, col, ifp) and added several new ones (rrr, binipl, cinfo.bin, nodes*.dat). Also, both txd and dff files contain lots of new features. So how can they say our old (unmodified) editors will still work? That's not even the case for any of the text files...
