[REL|SA] GTA San Andreas .LOD Mod

No. It takes a little more time to bring what is missing, for example, doors, garage doors, spray interiors, because in original .lods world they don't exist the reason is instead of them just a wall, to mask that gap and so many other things that I want to bring back.

Just keep up the good work

Any method that I had found has a second effect. Well, a new one where I hope that everything will work perfectly from now on until I finish all those missing files is:
Gets rid of those flickering objects between distance and aproach like what cjd2425 talked about in this own topic. How I manage to do that, I just merge two objects and put them as .lod and again the same file as normal objects. Now I took the object that doesn't have .lod and rescale it with 3Dmax to -10 (microscopic).
It seems that it's specific .col file isn't affected by the scale of it's .dff and now because I merge both, that flickering doesn't exist anymore and you will not fall through the microscopic objects.
The second effect that I was talking about is that in SA-MP for customs maps, the microscopic objects will make you wonder where in the world is it. Well sorry but even in Med Editor it cannot be seen because if the objects could bee seen like +10 instead of -10 you could see it in the game as well, only if you will got through the specific object using a trailer and it would look like a easter-egg floating in the air, because sometimes the game happens to take a little seconds for the game to load. I mention that this is not related to this mod is about the game himself, unmoded.
But I really don't because, the normal game, normal map, normal SA-MP map [Godfather, race, etc] that doesn't add any extra objects or it doesn't move it's coordonates, the mod is very playable. So for some couple of small SA-MP customs maps, I really don't bother. You want a good distance mod that fixes all that crappy .lod stuff made by R*, wait for it.

|'a more draw distance' can be achieved by editing the timecyc. (FARCLP)|
Yes I know, but there are someones who don't know how to edit and...
I edit it myself but its a little buggy, when i look far some objects are not rendering some are and if i zoom in for ex. with sniper the object are rendering so that' why i'm asking, if he will make...
There is a mod 10x draw distance, its has the same problem with the objects

Timecyc is draw distance and .lod objects are materials transformed in good quality. It may resembles to what you think, but it's not the same thing.
Asking for too much to includ in one mod that is related just to one basic purpose, is not a good idea. Just because others don't know how to mod something, why do I need to take care for everyone. Learn it like I'm doing now, all by myself.
It's freezing cold out here I can't work at this mod or at anything else ; I need to stay in bed and watch Tv series because is -15, and -25 at night. Water and electricity went down couple of days. From the past two weeks, only yesterday I manage to go outside. This ain't feeling good to stay so much in the house.

don\'t get me wrong
this is a cool mod and we can wait for it even if it take 1 year or more

Or you could live were I live, and have a handful of earthquakes every day. I live on shaky ground. Is it snowing at all ? lol.
This mod isn't going to help objects appear from further away. It's LOD's only.
You could look on Libertycity.ru for a mod that makes peds/vehicles appear from further away. Sorry for spamming in your awesome topic BLITZ

This mod is just for better quality for far objects, i know, if there is more draw distance this mod will look cooler, but there is problem with that draw distance with objects like buildings, they are disappearing if i zoom in they appear, with the road there is no problem.
If BLITZ can fix this problem the mod will be cooler. It\'s just an idea

I've been through a lot of problems with the mod and yesterday I manage to fix about everything, thanks to my backup. It was a good idea to keep a backup of the mod before I started to add new objects in .lod world.
I'm sorry to say it but the following problems came from adding too many .lod objects and boxes with COL II tool to fix new added .lod objects because some of them where disappearing on certain angles. Because of too many, the game was crashing at some specific points of the map, so I need it to delete everything and use the backup in order to put the original file back.
Now I still need to do some tweaks, adding other objects and when I will finish with my list I will try to add what I didn't manage to add using the .asi

Having like 512x512 and 1024x1024 textures for almost any txd file and then PO, it's overkill because of too over exaggerated polies.

|I think he means for SRT3 overall..|
Posted 17 February 2012 - 11:57 AM
As I said, Srt3 still remains for 2013 or when ever it will happend. I can't afford any new PC in this year or in the next years from how my status is right now. I don't know the precise answer here. I say this random.
Med Editor and wordpad is something else.
