If you can split it up into two .rars, you can upload it either to http://www.megaupload.com/ (500MB limit) or http://www.filefactory.com/ (300MB limit). Not too sure about any 500MB+ sites... if there aren't any then the only alternative would be to make it a torrent like Ryan said. I'd help seed it too.

Maybe that is a reason why this mod is called BETA .

Does every LOD in the SA folders need to be coll'd?
How exact do they need to be?
Does the player ever actually touch the LOD colfiles?

All the normal objects have COLS, but as SA doesn't need COLs for it's LODs there isn't a problem, VC engine needs COLs for both it's normal dffs aswell as its LOD's or the engine seems to crash when loading up.

I've converted all the COLs found in the GTA3.img directly from SA using Steve M's COLII, (Each set to target VC) but stangly there was only some LOD cols but not all.

I had started to remove any LODs in the SA Cols, I know there isn't many left from what I tried to add in the beginning.

But before I released the mod, I removed all the LOD's because I felt it was an LOD problem, and there still seems to be a random crash ingame and noway to pinpoint the problem.

I'm not sure if it's a model that got changed in anyway when they got converted.

If the model got offset from it's col pos, ie. cords don't match, then I know there is going to be problems.

Talking to nitzkit... the following quote.

QUOTE (nitzkit @ Dec 15 2006, 08:44)
X-seti I don't know if we could actually combine our work and here is why....

To make SA LOD files work in VC you have to rename them to the exact name as the normal dff and replace the 3 first letters with LOD. I'm sure you know all this.

But what you might not have realized is that since I use macros which basically do repetitive work so I dont break my brain from bordom. I found that if for example:

LAE_ROAD12
LOD_ROAD12

LAN_ROAD12
LOD_ROAD12

These 2 files would use the same file name for the LOD equivalent. This creates a problem obviously. So I decided to have every normal file start out with a prefix aswell. The prefix "NOR".

NORLAE_ROAD12
LODLAE_ROAD12

NORLAN_ROAD12
LODLAN_ROAD12

By doing this you can avoid the doubled up LOD files that can accord when renaming the LOD files.


Suffixing the files maybe is something we should look into, dunno.

I'm going to be busy over the weekend and upto Christmas, so have a good one, Merry Cristmas.

I'm having trouble with the new release. I usually back my CDs up on a virtual drive to make sure I don't damage my discs, but it says the wrong is disk inserted when I try to play SOL. So I put the actual CD in my drive and I got the same message (this is after ejecting the virtual drive). What should I do?

I was strongly advised to add the CD checks into the mod's EXE (SOL.exe), This is because someone out there has found a work around, thus unknown to me until now, the exe could be used illegaly.

I had made attempts in the past, where the exe would only work within the SOL.

CD Cracks, Any convos about this topic are against GTAF rules.

There are lots of places you can pick up a good copy. (www.play.com)

Then I need to release the patches so you can patch your own EXE.

But for now download Steve M's Limit adjuster, and use the settings shown in this image below.

Then download Andy's Limit adjuster II (Click here.), and do the same using the image below.

All setting must match, then the mod should work.

Do you think you can remove water from the game? I hear that you can but is it possible. Also I found swimming mod that doesn't bug like the rest of them. It just shows animation kind of diffrently but it modifies Main.scn and waterpro forgot the link thought I'll post it later. Also PS can you please make the cars look not dirty because I compared Vice city cars to SOL and SOLl cars are kind of dirty and they don't look like vice city cars. Please explain.

stop drinking coffee! please use punctuation! the SOl cars ingame are mostly san andreas cars, which have more realistic textures and arn't as dirty as vc ones (vc ones are really filthy, just look at the paint). if i remember correctly, SOl will have cars from every gta game, but then the VC/III ones would have to be retextured to match. i hope this answers your questions.

@X-Seti: please reply to my previous post.

You may not like this idea but could you make cars look little bet cleaner and can you have a map because for some reason I can't find San Andreas and liberty city can only find VC MAinland and Statue of liberty!

AndreiM; Water tables are being worked on, we will end up with a 45Meg waterpro.dat file.

simplyunkillable; The car is nice but I wanted to get away from the chunky VC style cars.

I would like to revamp the mafia sentinal (Look at the Leonie Sentinal in LCS)

There is a SOL map posted on the Maps Thread, oh and I forget to say that we are getting rid of the rader, I'm going to have sign posts in the game, and the player is going to have to learn his way around.

We could even have a GPS pickup.
