Here is my old Official BETA Topic (click!). You'll find some useful info in their. And here are the pics from that topic:

I was hoping someone would pick up and do this mod; good luck to everyone who are going to help. I would, but I've only just started modeling and texturing in SA; and I've yet to get IV. But maybe somewhere down the line I could lend my services. Shame we can't modify IMGs yet cryani.gif .

Where did you take out the fact that there were black taxis? The NY cabs are all yellow and GTAIV's LC was developed as recreation of NY since the first trailer.

Well, must have been a bug in that video, because the Taxis were already yellow in the first trailer.

Or maybe Rockstar had screwed up some car colours or something when making that trailer.

nice idea..always love the beta topics biggrin.gif

but as simkas said the taxis were mainly yellow from beginning and the fact its black in that video is strange...why do you think it was black? confused.gif

surely taxis would always have been intended to be yellow in New York settings!!

Good Luck with the mod icon14.gif

Updates: Beta Haircut 1 and 2 and Beta License Plates + Screenshots added.

Thanks for all the nice comments. biggrin.gif
I have no clue why the Taxis were black in this video. dontgetit.gif
I only played with the colors in the carcols.dat and changed the yellow too black.

More updates soon!

@gtamodder: Thanks, man smile.gif
@arthurc: In the early screenshots the cars don't have an writing on it.
The Hove Beach sign was red, i need to know the file name.
And there were two shops which Rockstar left out in the final game.

Yeah, I know. I was just trying to point out, that they use to be black at one point during the development stage to simkas.

And so what about trailer 1? They don't shoot everything in order. They take clips then put them together. They don't necessarily shoot their films and it's parts in chronological order.

Obviously, they weren't going to stay black. But saying that they were never black and shouldn't be considered as a BETA development is just plain in denial.

@gamesguru: Yes you're right all the time the taxis had the standard yellow since the first trailer, just only it this video it's black.

@<Floyd>: It wasn't that hard to recreate this haircuts, thanks.
I know some people can't wait for new mods, this one is going to be very big, some things i can't even realize.
But i try to do the best to bring the beta feeling back.
Maybe someone notice other things, then i will be thankful, if he informate me.

That "Unknown weapon" is the mp5 thingy, you know, that sub machine gun. Also, i just noticed, looking at older screens, that the game used to look a lot more realistic, especialy with thos car reflections which you can barely see in the final game

The hands pic is an really early beta pic, look how low res niko is.

I hope you dont do everything, tho i like the binco.

The black taxi sucks and the non sunglassed LJ looks crazy and i dont like it.

Some things are koo, like the yellow glow, it is much more clear.
