This is a mod I made (out of pure boredom), replacing all the copy-pasted buildings on Ocean Drive with new ones, (somewhat) based off of buildings found on the real Ocean Drive in Miami.

 

Here are pictures of the buildings:

There are obviously some bugs I need to iron out, also improving of some stuff; changing textures, bits of buildings, etc.
But I'm just showing off my progress as it is now - while typing this I already have several things on mind to change and fix, but I'd appreciate your criticisms, ideas, and the like. :)

All of them look really well done, Kalvin, well done!

 

but I'd appreciate your criticisms, ideas, and the like. :)

 

Sweet! In that case, could you make the Decowalk more accurate to the real one like you were doing?

Add some prelighting/vertex colouring and they will look even better. :)

Why don't you add some real time reflections to them windows instead of what you got there.

The buildings look too bright, the white ones look too white compared to others.

 

Other than that, it's a job well done. :cookie: :cookie:

After a long while, thought I'd give an update.
Here's my amateur attempt at Night Time versions :p

Thanks, a few of them I don't like how they look, so I'll be changing them. (The last two, being an example).

Anyways, more news, need your opinion on this one.
I made one of the buildings closer to its real life counterpart, do you guys prefer this version, or the previous?

Old one:
Nvt5Zf0l.jpg
(It is an old picture as well, a few textures were changed but it's still pretty much the same)

New one:
EhCbzpel.jpg

Oh, and if you guys are wondering in the slightest what the buildings I took 'inspiration' from look like in real life, these are them. (Taken from Google Maps, arranged in order as to how they are in the first post - are also pretty big images, so proceed with caution. :p)

I like the first one (the old one) but I don't like its colors of textures. I think that you should try the textures of the new one on the old one. ;)

I swapped the colors of the old with the new (other than what you said with the "new with the old"), just to see how it looks:

The colors/textures look much better now. I'd like to see them at day time. Can you show some more screens?

I'm not sure whether or not you mean the new one (the 'new one' from the original post), or the new new one (with the old colors on the new one) :p

But here's some more pictures of the 'new new' one:

Oh I'm sorry, I didn't explain my idea well. By the old one I meant this building:

Old one:
Nvt5Zf0l.jpg
(It is an old picture as well, a few textures were changed but it's still pretty much the same)

My Idea is to use the previous building but with the green textures of the following building:

 

New one:

I hope that everything is realized. :)

Moved to Maps. I needed a reason to bump & ask a question

 

So I assume you've gotten bored working on this and that's why it died out? Would love to see this complete.

Yeah, it did. Plus I lost the files as my old hard drive died, after I release BETA2 of SA BETA I'll probably start it back up. :^:

You know, files could be revived from a dead hdd, if it's not 'that' dead.

I absolutely LOVE the idea of this mod. While I was working on Vice Cry, I've noticed there's so many doubled (sometimes even tripled) buildings on the Ocean Drive. So I'm happy to see an attempt to make this street unrepeatable, unique.

However, models you've shown us, are mostly very simple - simpler than original Vice City ones. It'd be great if you could spend a little bit more time, add details, work on textures and make them look better, to match Ocean Drive's style and atmosphere. It's a very representative and recognizable district in Vice City, so it'd be great if you could expand its 80s flashiness instead of adding... Dull replacements for buildings (I'm not sure if this word seem a little offensive in this case, but all I'm trying to say is those buildings look generic and do not attract player's attention).

Anyways, good luck with the mod - wish it best. Great to see people who still work with Vice City  :colgate:

Behind the limo.
They did actually make more buildings for Ocean Drive (or at least, one).
And they cut them.

For f*cks sake, Rockstar.
