If you add motion blur, please disable de "camera rotation blur", it's so boring [and cosolish] !

It's funny you say this, because I have been looking for a way to disable that and it will be reduced in the mod biggrin.gif Actually the only place I think there should be motion blur is when you drive fast..

cool.gif Héhé, I'm happy to see that I'm not the only one to think that it look unrealistic to blur the scene when you turn the head.
I agree: When you drive fast it look great and it make you driving faster and longer tounge.gif

I really really like your mod, and I have a question about it, would your mod give any performance boosts for older computers? I seen a mod a while back that changes a file and it gave more fps.

yes because of the inclusion of the farclip 3500 tweak you can set the drawsistance to 1-3 and use the extra video mem to crank the rest of the graphic options up.

Hi TPP,
Thanks for the feedback, I haven't seen this yet, but it's because of the increased reflection, the strange thing is the yellow colour... hmm..

HI, The new version is not out yet! Im working on the ambient light for the dusk and dawn right now and testing, the problem is that I can test the mod with all the different weather types, but have to "wait" on the in between weather types, f.ex. from rain to sunny etc. that's why it takes time to finish.

Edited the trees to have a more realistic colour.

Uhm.. I don't want to be a pain in the ass, but that isn't realistic... Take in mind, in GTA IV, it's Autumn.

But it looks really cool.

The brown trees looked dull and it looked strange that you had green trees beside the brown trees in real life all the trees should be in the same colour, so I edited them to be green to give the mod a spring time feel like this:

So every movie is boring then. I tweaked it to give cinematic feel to this game as every movie has this kind of effect and I love when game looks like pictures from real cine camera

Yes that's not a problem, but this change would allso require more CPU power,so i have decreased the rain drops instead to save the power for the increased reflections.

I think the way R* have made the fog and rain is nice smile.gif

Thanks to bartekxyz icon14.gif , we can now have the nice motion blur effect without the motion blur when moving the mouse in this mod.

The GTA4 game engine is very dificult to setup so that the game runs without problems (i still get lag from time to time...), so that would be quite a task to make something like what you suggest. Try read some of the guides around on this forum.
