What if every single building in the game had an interactive interior? Would that not make the game at least 2X better than it already is? Think about it. Every building having something to do and something to explore. Wouldn't that be awesome? Well, let's cut to the chase. I've seen what graphics modders have done with the graphics and what coders can do with trainers (heavy rain in GTA IV). So, I think you magnificent people can make it work.

Then I'll probably watch a video of it on youtube because I can't get mods on a 360 and my computer struggles with modern flash games.

Basically yes. I probably can't run GTA IV on here, let alone ENB mods, but I still watch a lot of ENB and icenhancer videos on youtube simply because they look so damn nice.

Sorry to have to bring this bad news, but it is actually impossible... blush.gif

There are limits in GTA IV. And part of that limit is portals. Those are required to make the interior into MLO which will make them 'behave' like actual interior.

Unless you add the interior in and don't mind that the lighting inside behave like the exterior. But even then, the amount of work needed is basically equivalent to modelling an entire new city considering furniture, lights, other props. ect. (also consider this, buildings have multiple floor, and if each one is to look unique in some ways, one building will contain so many detailed floors that might even surpass the calibur of multiple blocks in a city. Rockstar already needs a large team to create the cities and still need a few years to get it done. I doubt anybody could get something like this done in IV.

Sure, but you could use TCYC (WPL) zone for them when you reach the limit of interiors

I am not sure this would work,

GTA IV has TCYC limit. So far, I have not been able to add more than one TCYC in whithout the game crashing. Both are working TCYC that have been individually tested and works individually but not together.

There is a home invasion script mod that simulates every door being enterable. It really just teliports you to an existing interior.

One interior that I think Liberty City is missing is the interior to Grand Eastern Terminal (right by the GetaLife Building). The fancy train station lobby isn't put in on IV. Its a important interior in NY in my opinion and I was disapointed that it wasn't in the game. Second interior, not as much as the first, that I wish the game had was the airport interior. Those are the two interiors that the game was really missing.
