Mmmm, these vehicles reflect nice, an example of remastered vehicles, models by CP, textures by Ash, vehiclepipe by The Hero...

Spoiler

How looked before? I mean, which ones was the old reflections? Also, if those are Xbox/Neo reflections, VCS reflections will be implemented as well?

iirc they permanently reflected palm trees :D

Yeah in the old betas the envmap was just a static image (the one with palm tree's), in my WIP build the envmap was changed to corona placements similar to the game, ...now envmap is ditched by both VCS style and NEO style, completely redone vehiclepipe by The Hero to sort of combine VCS and VC Xbox styles, mixed with the carTweakTable I've done and a certain surprise coming up, makes these stand out very nicely.

In terms of overall quality too (Models/Textures), it goes like this (from best to worst)

VC Xbox > VCS PC > VC PS2 > VC PC > VCS PS2/PSP

Combined with other elements and tricks however could make people like VCS PC the best.

Is there any way I can take the fonts from VCS PC Edition and use them in base GTA:SA? When I take the .txd and the .dat the fonts look all messed up when I load up GTA SA. Can anyone help?

You can't just take them as is, we use a different font grid, support more languages and have more fonts.

Damn, really hope that mobile version will come, or maybe R* should just donate the files in a functional format :')

Do you know this mod still violates new R* EULA? Only reason R* doesn't probably give a f*ck is because it's 3D gta instead of RAGE HD gta

Looks amazing. I wonder if the same thing happens on SA with neo reflections enabled? I mean, reflecting the light source.

looks different from the San Andreas one. Like better, would say like in real Stories games. The PS2 one in SA still leaves still some bugs on the trees. Or maybe it's the leaves resolution.

I see that car lights look quite different than in stock SA. They will stay as they are now or you will try to replicate the VC/VCS car lights beam? How about reverse lights (one of the earlier screenshots had a taxi with white lights on the rear, so I guess this is under construction)? Brake lights like in VCS?

We're using the SA vehicle light system but the textures are from Vice City Xbox and sources of higher res versions of generic lights from GTA3/VC, we're going through each vehicle one by one and matching what light looks best with each vehicle. The coronas are still there, just subtle, it's kinda like the technique used on GTA IV/V. And yes, both front and back lights are done, all lights on a vehicle are (e.g. Ambulance with the inactive lights on the side use a better texture too) and yes, the Taxi in the earlier screenshot is an incomplete model.

On the plus side, we get to see how lazy Rockstar were in VCS with some things, ...

Oh hey, KRONOS, that Watch company...

I bet they got lots of watches in the back, let's go check...

Yeah they just changed the texture for the outside but the inner details remain the same as in VC in the props area.
