Suppose that Vice City is covered with snow. Suppose that а lot of snow fell — a layer of 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. 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 enhanced: 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.
By the way, Winter Mod 3.0 is a first multi-platform mod for GTA: it's released not only for PC, but also for Android.
P.S. This is the most retarded mod. Initially I wanted to release it in February. Many technical problems delayed the development, but better late than never. Version for Android — it is experiment, this version not shown the quality of PC-version and made in such a way as can be done with currently existing non-ideal programs.
