| How much of San Andreas is done? |
Process is slow given I have to convert over 19000 models by hand, creating a new COL for each model with LODs, and processing the TXDs using TXDworkshop so they can be used within SOL.
It takes me 2 minutes to convert each model with COL and LOD, and there isn't a faster way to convert these files since most modders in the modding community is doing this the other way around, converting VC models to SA.
I also have to convert all the other files needed for moving SA into SOL, like the IDE and IPL files,
I need to change all the ID's and cords, and be careful that no SA models have the same file names as existing SOL files, So I'll be optimizing objects where possible using existing VC models instead thus saving on ID's
Traffic lights, Streetlights, Bins and Boxes.. stuff like that, mostly generic objects.
Zon files and Ped paths, Object.dat file also needa to be addressed.
I am the only active member besides the work Andy, his work on the exe is important for me to add SA.
All I can do is alittle each today, spending upto 4 or 5 hours depending on what time I do have to mod, and I know this is going to take a long time but this will be worth it in the end.
