What is Myriad Islands?
Myriad Islands is a total conversion for GTA: Vice City and GTA: San Andreas. By that we mean every part of the game is edited. There is a new map (land and buildings ect.) new missions and code, brand new cars, new weapons and more! The project was started by illspirit in 2003 and there are many contributers. For more info about the start of myriad search through this forum!
Why does my game crash when I am driving around?
Myriad Islands has many small bugs which cause the game to randomly crash usually when driving around. Using the installer pack and raising all the limits is a good idea.
Why are some of the links to download lots are broken? What do I do?
Post in the downloads topic that a link is broken. Someone may be able to tell you why this is and if/when it will be working again.
I have downloaded Myriad but there are no buildings. Why is this?
This means you have only downloaded the blank island pack. This pack doesnï¿½t have any lots included with it. An installer does and is always available from www.myriadislands.com
When will the mod be finished?
Myriad may never be finished but maybe it will. But there is not a set date for everything to be done.
When I load a save game there are no cars or peds. Whats happened?
This is a small bug with the mission script which witll probably be avoided in San Andreas.
I have just installed something but when I see it there is nothing but I can still walk on invisible land. What has gone wrong?
The dff or the txd file may have been corrupted as they were added to the img or the draw distance in the ide line is set to zero instead of upto 300.
Will Myriad be ported into San Andreas?
Yes, work in underway to put myriad islands into san andreas.
Do I need to have an unmodified version of Vice City to install?
Yes this is recommended to create less crashes
I just downloaded Myriad and I canï¿½t find some of the missions. Where are they?
You need to download the latest script from the Mission Script Topic. The mission script in constantly updated so you should keep an eye on that topic.
When a install a lot there are bitï¿½s of the lot scattered all over the place. Why is this?
You must have installed something wrong or not deleted some files you needed to delete. If you are using older lots they may have the same ide numbers
When I step into one of the pink spheres Tommy starts flying along. Is there something wrong?
The flying code was made for testing purposes. To quit it press enter or space
I just installed a building and itï¿½s completely white. Whatï¿½s wrong?
You may have forgotten to add the .txd file that goes with that building to gta3.img or you might have a corrupted .txd file which means you need to download again
Can I play myriad on the Ps2 or XBOX?
Myriad has not been designed for the console versions of GTA. It is impossible to play it on the PS2 but some people have got some of myriad into an XBOX version. Click here for more info.
When I am playing the game I repeatedly get this:
This is just a bad install usually or maby you need to raise the limits in the VC limit adjuster.
I am using colfiles in the img, but when I approach the model I have added I fall through to the black abyss.
When adding colfiles to the img the colfiles are case sensitive and need to match the filname definition exactly, the game won't crash but the colfile will not get used.

@Cran - I get that sometimes, try reinstalling the car as that usually fixed it for me.

Because I tried installin the lot both manually and with the Installer, but when i saw Opius` video (with the bike) his lot didn`t have those "bugs"

@ Black-Hawk. everyone has them problems im sure they will be fixed by Opius.

Also, you might find the handrails in the carpark stairwell a little funky. I have no idea how, but I managed to accidently add a reflection map to it. I also know that the windows on the light blue building are mapped upside down.
In any case, all of these problems will be fixed in the final version.

@Opius: I have a other problem with your lot. 1 part of the stores doesn't have a floor in it and you can see right trough in the garage.
wait a min and I'll upload some pics.
Seen from 1 side:
And from the other side:
And in the second one you also see a problem with the rail at the staires in the garage.
I used the install script to install the lot. Maybe I miss a dff or something or does everyone has this problem?
And I hate my crapy gforce 2 mx400.
