Imagine that Vice City is covered with snow. Imagine that а lot of snow fell a layer of fresh snow covered not only the roads and lawns, but also the roofs of houses, shops... The passers have to dress warmer, cars are sliding on slippery surfaces, the strong wind is blowing, and that's all perfectly suited to upcoming winter holidays in the city.
Winter Mod 3.0 is a global winter modification which transfigures summer Vice City into a real winter town, like in Christmas stories.
After the installation all city is covered with snow! All roads, grass, roofs are covered with snow, no detail was missed. Used high resolution and high quality textures; LOD-textures also have been replaced. All pedestrians are clothed in warm clothes. Four new skins for Tommy (in cut-scenes he also can be dressed in warm clothes). Ability to walk, not only run.
Was added new Freeride Mode (with this option you can play the game without missions and storyline, only free discovering the city).
Winter weather: long evenings and nights, gloomy sky, snow is falling; you can hear the howling of wind. New radio station with songs (duration: about one hour) that dedicated for Christmas and New Year (and yet another radio station you can install from Bonus folder).
Graphic also heavy improved: added new visual effects bloom, motion blur, color correction, realtime reflections, anisotropic filtration, vignette and aliasing. With powerful menu you can configure each option of the mod and change different settings. And all these not all changes that were made for this mod.
This is the first cross-platfrom mod for GTA, because it is released not only for PC (main version) but also (as experimental version) for Android, first global modification for mobile GTA: Vice City and first winter mod for this game.
