All you've done is draw some lines, haha.

In that case, if people DO want antenna towers that much, let's do a little competition, go around previous GTA games and find any masts you think would look good at the top of these buildings, maybe do a concept or something, because we really don't know what to go with right now because it seems ANYTHING we do people scream at us about it not being authentic. tounge.gif

The only thing that would fit there would be such thin mast. Anything else wouldn't fit the picture.

I had these masts in my mind:

Although you might have to make them thinner and resize them to fit the building.
In fact.. it doesnt even need to be that detailed or anything. Putting it simple: we just need something to hold these lights. Such object like those lines i drawed would be good enough XD

Hmm, it just occured to me but wouldn't the antennas almost completely block the ability to land a helicopter on those rooftops? I mean those rooftops don't have that much surface to begin with.



If it's a choice between putting antennas to match the lights or being able to land on the rooftops, I'd definitely pick the latter.

That screen is gorgeous! wow.gif

Edit: @Claude Liberty Alright. Thanks for your reply.
@Tranquil_Suit Maybe make them non-collidable, so you can land on top of the tower.

Just like car manufacturers show their vehicles with mud dashing from under their wheels to show how powerful they are. Just looks more impressive.
EDIT: Is it just me that vehicles on my PSP don't look that smooth?

I think the lights are on the extremities of the roof, so u have space to land on the middle.
But hey. Not every tower in real life is able to support an helicopter landing... so live with it.

Are these PS2 models? Because cars on PS2 look better and smoother than PSP ones.

GTA isn't real life, so no, I don't have to live with it. If there is a high building with a flat surface, then I wanna land my heli on it.
And those thin sticks for antennas SUCK. sneaky2.gif ... blush.gif

Now that I think about it, given the height ratio of the building to the those lights, I don't think any antenna would look good (especially from far away), unless maybe a thick structure with a pyramid/cone silhouette. In any case, it would obstruct landings.


As for antennas without collision. You'd have to be aware that they have no collision in the first place. Besides, it's kinda silly, no?





I guess what I'm trying to say is. Putting antennas there wouldn't work, sorry for bringing it back up in the first place.

It's just an idea. confused.gif Yes, maybe it is a bit stupid. Yes, maybe there is no point. It's up to developers to decide. Not to me. I haven't done a single mod in my life. whatsthat.gif

Dude, don't you know? There is a 3D Holographic Projector inside the building. That's where the lights are coming from.

Man we are talking about the red and yellow strobe lights, not the holographic one.

Broski those are colored smoke signals. That's the Indian Chief behind the building sending SOS signals.

Just wanted to underline the fact, that these are just some lights without a pole. I believe the team is already busy enough doing stuff that really is important at the moment wink.gif
BTW Hey to all, been followin this thread for some time now and Ive got to give you big congratulations on what's already been done. That's really a piece of an amazing work, guys wink.gif

If there was towers for poles or whatever in the original VC/VCS then just put them in, There is plenty of other Roofs to land on if you dont like it, and the ones with the lights are too high up to be useful to anything like sniping so there is no need to be up there in the first place, just put the towers in.

In case this was missed in the recent commotion.

Notice how the purple and lightblue neon lights are switched (compared to the other neon lights in the building). Bug or intentional?

Intentional, it's like that in the original. Whether it's a bug on Rockstar's side though is up for debate.
