This will be the newest (and probably last) version of my Vegetation Pack. It will be still performace friendlier and less buggy than PO. If you got any ideas or suggestions, feel free to post them here. BUT keep it REAL.... Me and Iceman-Studios are modders and not magicians.


FEATURES

*This time there will be real LQ, MQ and HQ versions. LQ and MQ will share the same models but LQ will have lower-res textures.
*Most of the trees will have a shadow mesh.
*Full replacement of SA's vegetation.
*One or two bonuses


DOWNLOAD

When it's done wink.gif



FIRST UPDATE

It took some time, but finally I made it. I converted 3 trees from IV to SA. They have custom textures, custom collision and custom shadows. Here are 3 pics:

These trees from 3.0 are outstanding!
Really nice and very green-ish.

I have one wish.
Could make them GTA Snow San Andreas 2011 GQ comptabiel?
I mean, making them covered with snow?
That Snow mod has PO trees and it makes the game increible lag at some area's.
My laptop runs SA without any FPS drop when installed your 3.0 pack.
But when talking PO trees, you'll need a serious GTX580 or something.

Sure smile.gif
These trees have many many different textures.
I have all trees extracted from MEd and saved them in a folder tounge.gif
All PO trees just finished extracted and replacing them with mid-poly trees.
Some other trees are really 3D and other contains more than 32.000 polies.

But this one is excellent! smile.gif
Would you please tell the .dff names of these IV trees?
Personally I don't like the IV trees, so I'd like to replace them with other trees.

Do you need any testers who owns a laptop?
Like me?
I own a laptop and play games on it.

Keep up the good work icon14.gif

Well, good thing this time your replacing ALL of GTA SA's vegetation. xD But please just don't replace the textures, please replace the models too. tounge.gif BTW, is this still compatible with SRT3? And since this will 'probably' be the last vegetation mod, I wish you the best luck, and seeing your pictures, it looks like this is going to be a very successful mod. Keep it up DP. icon14.gif

umm.. can you ask IceMan to model trees like the ones from GTA V? It would really add more realism! smile.gif

P.S. - This is just my suggestion, and it's okay if you, nor IceMan won't do it.

Really?! Oh my, this is going to be the best vegetation mod out there! biggrin.gif I'm looking forward for the palm screenshots soon.

@Pawelo - Oh c'mon, GTA SA ain't that old. tounge.gif If you have the right mods, GTA SA would definitely be a very 'fun' and 'realistic' game.

Lookin' great! icon14.gif How's the progress with the palm trees?
------------------------------------------------------------------
Another suggestion: On v3.0, your shrubs looks too "green" and it doesn't mix well with the trees. Could you, by any chance, change the shrub colors into natural colors? Oh, and just incase you forget: No cartoonish textures please. tounge.gif

Here are quite a few trees you could use for your mod:

Is that enough inspiration to get those sexy plants in the game? lol

Here's another BETA-tester, this mod would be great reason why to install SA back on. Especially if it's really for low-end PC's too. I don't really understand my laptop, SA laggs alot when there are too many trees in field of vision, like 15 trees, making it about ~30000 polys. But any other game doesn't lagg like that, driving games with +50k poly models, 12 cars visible at same time and I'm getting better FPS than in SA... biggrin.gif Incompatibility issue between Ati-GPU and SA? (Designed for NVidia)

Sad to see you leave my brother. Hope all is well icon14.gif Life always takes priority sly.gif
I hope the 'personal' reasons aren't negative.

Good luck for the future cool.gif
