I've seen people asking for HQ Vice City weapon icons (myself included tounge2.gif ), so I decided to make them. Also because I thought the default icons were in desperate need of an update, especially with today's monitors.

Textures are 4 times the original size, they should look good even in the largest display available. Some weapons don't look exactly like the originals, that's due to lack of decent models. Some of the icons were made using the default models, as I thought they looked decent enough. Fist icon is not included, I recommend using OnePiece's.

Some screenshot comparisons:

I'm VERY happy with how these turned out, and I hope you will be too. This is also my very first mod, not too shabby I guess tounge2.gif

Mod should be available for download soon.

Every icon looks great, but some are a little dark. icon14.gif

It looks really good, but the circle around them shouldn't have that texture, instead, it should have a gradient color. smile.gif Like the radar.

Actually, I chose that texture to fit with yojo2's HQ radar mod. He used the same texture for the radar circle, and I personally think it looks really good. I can release a plain pink version as well if it bothers people (like in OnePiece's icons), but I don't think it will look very good against the detailed weapon models.

As for the dark looking weapons, that's just a result of rendering them at a certain angle (also, the fact that they have textures applied to them). It looks really good in-game, so that's all that matters to me smile.gif

Don't get me wrong dude! Your work is awesome, but it's just a personal opinion.

The reason I'm saying this is that the weapon textures are HD, but still closer to the originals and in overall, I don't think everyone would use yoyo's HQ radar mod. Would it be a big pain in the ass to release a clean border, with the gradient colors that are in the game default? smile.gif I think it would look good with that too, because the main thing that matters is that the weapons are more detailed in the hud. smile.gif)

Nice work, but OnePiece already made VC hud icons in HD icon14.gif http://www.gtaforums...entry1060221518

I'm already aware of OnePiece's icons, and those are unfinished. That's why I even decided to make this mod. Even if he finishes his icons, our styles are different enough to be two separate mods.

The folks at GtaGarage are sure taking their time to approve this...

i don't really like neither this or OP's icons, I would love to see same simple VC design just in high quality, this is too noisy for my eyes.

Yeah, I've done all weapons in the game. But for some reason the rest of the images refuse to show up here, even though the code is correct.

Ok, this is taking far too long to be approved. It's been nearly a week already, and still nothing. I've never seen a mod take this long to be approved before, and this is a fairly simple one.

Is there anyone in GtaGarage I can contact about this?

since there isnt much admins having VC installed at all, it will prolly take years

you can always upload it on some free file hosting site and give the temporary link, later it will be approved

Alright, I just uploaded the mod to GTAGaming.com. It's actually a slightly improved version, which now includes plain pink frames (for those who do not like the texture I used).

Right now it's waiting approval, but once it's approved you can get it here: http://www.gtagaming...misc-mods/10424

These are pretty, amazing job Zera smile.gif
Fist icon with the modified frame (yoyo2's border) is the only missing thing. Could you edit OnePiece's so it has the fresh look?

Well, it's OnePiece's icon so I can't just modify it and release it. It shouldn't be that hard to just cut the hand from it on photoshop then paste it on the frame I provided though wink.gif
