[REL - SCR] Frozen Liberty City
Posted 09 December 2007 - 07:50 AM Edited by TheDude5000, 17 December 2007 - 12:46 PM.
It's now the two year anniversary of my most popular and favorite mod, Frozen Bone County. Since then I delayed a bunch of mods, cancelled some, and in general just saw a decline in my own work. I'd like to think that has ended, and I have made a mod that I am truely satisfied with and proud of. Something I haven't done since FBC. So go, enjoy, leave feedback, whatever.
UPDATE: Thanks to Steavor and AK-73, the mod now has realistic snowfall! It is included in the new version, which has other small tweaks as well.
Collision, textures - TheDude5k
VC Weather config - AK-73
Modified config for proper snowfall - Steavor
I'm in discussions to have it mirrored on other sites, but for now you can grab it here:

Anyway - I'd love to play it, seriously. A winter-themed GTA:LC would be a great addition for holidays.
EDIT: I will try this out when i'm on my desktop pc.

I'll try to include it in a future version.

The 'Snow' state replaces the 'Stormy' weather state which is not used by GTA3/LC anyway, so there's no downside at all.
The custom snow texture (named boats_08) needs to be put into particle.txd to be recognized by the tool, then you're ready to go.

I'm kinda tired so I don't have time to constantly configure and tweak the settings files to get snow to appear..so if you can
somehow get it to work, maybe post the code here or upload the files themselves, I might update the mod to include them.
Is there a way to have snow without the GTA3 lighting though? I'm sure many people love it, but personally I really like the LCS/bright
look that's in the early versions of LC. Anyway, I think the modified rain texture I made will make due for now, but if we can get some more realistic looking snow in there that'd be even better.

The lighting is influenced by the tint values (tables at the end of the config file). They can be turned off (= set to VC default) by setting global setting C to 0.
That means changing the first line from
0 0 1 00 to 0 0 0 00

EDIT: Yeah 3 uses 8-bit textures. Now I'm not too sure, but I believe attempting to convert my 32 bit textures would seriously downgrade the quality and just make the whole thing moot.

And those pictures are also really awesome.

BTW, replace the ugly R* billboards to like "Merry X-Mas" billboards..

uh and make trees Full white not only half.. it ruins the feeling imo

I like snow in LC also
I have small idea.
If there's snow everywhere, could You please, edit handling.cfg so that cars would skid. It would add more realism to the game.

Snowfall thanks to Steavor, based on AK-73's Weather Config. Also a few minor tweaks. New download links in original post. Expect a new video too, but not longer than 40 seconds. If I could get some good feedback here, that'd be great...

As you can see, I had considered such a mod myself but never got around to doing it myself because of other projects. If you need some mem hacking to enable additional snow fx, you got a coder. Just pm me.
PS Maybe you could re-use some stuff from the old GTA3 Max Payne Mod?

You should remake the road textures more white and texture them in photoshop .
