Thats some great work kriller2 !!
Be aware that Episodes from Liberty city, the once Xbox 360 Exclusive, will come to the PC as well this spring, so i dont know if you could port the mod to the Expansion pack as well.

Awesome mod! Is it possible to use this simultaneously with the GTAIV More Liberty mod? Both have a timecycle.dat, visualcycle.dat and popcyc.dat file and I'm hesitant to replace one for the other.

I'm assuming for the "More Liberty" i should just replace the popcyc.dat to have a larger number of people but I'm not 100% certain.

I'm currently running the ENB series, Environment mod and the ultimate graphics tweak. I'm also wondering if i can use the ultimate textures mod as well.

System Specs:
Core 2 Quad 2.83 GHz
8 GB ram
windows 7 64x ultimate
Nvidia GTX 260

I believe all you need for More Liberty is the popcycle.dat and maybe filelist.pak. Someone correct me if I'm wrong.

Thanks for this awesome mod! Makes GTA IV look so much better!

I have no problems whatsoever with the mod, but I have a tiny issue.
The "trajectory line" for the cue ball in the pool mini game is gone... might this be accredited to the mod?
Pretty annoying that it is gone, I kinda liked being able to see where my shot was actually going.

All in all a great mod, so thanks for all the hard work, both for the dev and the testers!
Also, good luck with the new baby, hope it works out great. :]

This mod is no longer in development. You'll have to fix it yourself, I guess. confused.gif

I have a problem.

How to install Ultimate Graphic Tweak for this mod ?
Can I have copy both files visualsettings.dat and rage_postfx.fxc or only rage_postfx.fxc ?

Autor of environment mod say that visualsettings.dat is a heart of his mod but Ultimate Graphic Tweak have visualsettings.dat also.

Btw.

Autor of environment mod recommended Ultimate Graphic Tweak.

Sry for my english.

Hi,

There is a conflict with Ultimate Graphic Tweak (about 7-8am).

Older timecyc files are fine but timecyc from your fix = crash.
BUT...this is not timecyc problem...problem is in rage_postfx.fxc file from UGT.
When im go back to original rage_postfx.fxc everything is fine even with FIX timecyc.

SORRY FOR MY ENGLISH.

I have a problem with visualsettings.
There is no difference between "2b Remove Depth of field" and "2a Add Depth of field". Why ?
I always have "Add Depth of field" !!!

Only one way to disable Depth of field is turn of definition....but there is no blur also and I got drop FPS.
So how to set off DOF on near & middle distance ????

hi all,
Thank you for all the comments and feedback of the env mod 5 smile.gif . If you want to use this mod with the new patch 1.6 then I advice you to ONLY use the timecyc.dat from this mod it should work.

Using the files procobj.img and other .img files will probably cause problems.

no there shouldn't be any FPS drop. some users have even experienced a FPS boost because of the included farclip tweak, so you can set viewdistance to 1-10 and still have a better drawdistance of buildings.

You can find it under "global reflection", but in reality there aint much reflection going on when it's foggy, because of there is no light to be reflected smile.gif

Thanks for the reply, i tried it and it looks great, though i don't like some stuff, it could be because of the new patch
Popping up stuff, drawing too late, anyways, i will try to fix this if possible

Will report back later

hi Berto, try the timecyc from the hotfix, it contains changes to fix the grain after patch 1.5
Does it work?

Hi Kaktuz, you only need the timecyc.dat. If you open the file with Notepad there are values with "3500" doing a search and replace to the default "1500" will stop the effect of farclip.

BTW I don't have EFLC.

thanks. looks like it's EFLC's fault for farclip not working properly in it

Hi kriller2,

I want to use timecyc.dat in GTA IV and EFLC.
I have 3 question for you.
1) How I can edit night weather.. It's too dark. I can't see too much. I need more light.
2) Need ASI Loader with EFLC? If yes, how does it work in EFLC with ASI Loader?
3) Which one I need to use "timecyc.dat". Mod or hotfix. Which is the best?

Hi Obos, im glad you liked the mod with patch 1.03. The problem with the patch 1.6 might not be because of the ENV mod. Its possible it's another mod conflicting with your game, maybe you are trying to use Enb series with patch 1.6? or overwrite the 1.6 shaders with other shaders?

Try uninstalling all mods, so that you only use one mod at a time and then slowly enable one mod after another untill the problem arises.

Hi Erdo.
1) if you want to edit the night weather you will need a tool called "EditIV" and look for the parameters "Skycolour" and "direct light" at night.
2) Yes you will need a "hack" that lets you installl custumised files like the ASI loader or some other kind of hack.
3) The timecyc from the env. mod 5 is the best, because it contains some work I did to make the best fog possible at the given time. Unfortunately something happened to the way the "engine" uses fog after Rockstar released patch 1.5 which resulted in a kind of grey grain at night and when foggy/rain etc. So I made a special timecyc for patch 1.5 ( and 1.6 ) the "hotfix"

I noticed something. About timecyc.dat,
I using TBoGT's timecyc.dat also in TLaD. But TBoGT "timecyc.dat" doesn't work with GTA IV main game. I like TBoGT's timecyc.dat. I would also want to use it in GTA IV.
Can you do this kriller?

One more thing; If you thinking to do hotfix about last patch, could you make TBoGT's weather + Env Mod. reflection? Together will be awesome!
If you dont think to make, can you explain how I can do it?

Hi Erdo. Thanks smile.gif
Im not sure what you want me to do, both of the Timecyc you are mentioning are Rockstars work, so if I understand you correctly you want me to use parts of there work in ENV mod 5? sorry that's not possible.
