Updates
    7.12.2008
  • Added modded intro movies.
  • Written a script using GTA Mod Installer Beta 5.0 -> you can now easily install it using GMI.
    13.12.2008
  • Beta 1.02 is out!
  • Changed some 'info' texts.
  • Built an Install Setup using Clicktime Install Creator -> you can easily install it. No other programs required (thought you will have to make your own back-up).
    14.12.2008
  • Worked a bit more on the main.scm -> done all missions up to Toni's.
    16.12.2008

  • Added the first trailer. Check out the "trailers" section.
    26.12.2008
  • Re-written the GMI script, so now it can be installed via it. I tought it was better this way because it also backs-up your files. I also removed the map changes, as Moo Mapper seemed a bit buggy at the moment.

  • Beta 1.04 is out!
  • Re-made the Twin Towers map change and put a few Hepburn Heights towers underground biggrin.gif

Thanks for the mirror, BlazerRotare.

I just wanted to say that my PC is at the computer shop (getting some upgrades) right now, and I won't be able to work on the mod until Wendsday.

And not only that, but writing a script for the staunton's map files... can be a little complicated.

And if you wanted to know what I've changed, it's simply the WTC look-a-like building near Callahan - I moved it to the construction site, putting the original buildings that were there underground. Thought from a part their textures didn't loaded properly, and the LODs were also moved, so I decided to exclude them.

Not all. Yet smile.gif

As I edit the missions, I look at the end of them and edit the reward.

So the only missions with other rewards are the 4x4 & TOYZ ones, and from the beggining to, and including, The Getaway.

If you really wanna improve GTA 3, I suggest adding a key that enables walking (X or Alt, I always use X), making Claude do the cop crouch animation when you press C, and (I'm not too sure if this could be done so easily) adding jumping out of speeding cars, using the dodge car animation.
The cool thing is that all the animations that are needed to do this are already in the game...

It is, but since it's called GTA 3 - Improved edition it wouldn't kill if it would have something new... Plus beating the old missions for the 10th time without anything special doesn't seem very attractive to me. bored.gif

As I said, I don't know yet.

@all: What do you think 'bout the new splash/loading screens? (They're original PS2 screens, edited by me)
