So I figured I would bring this one up. How do you guys think the snowy version of San Andreas will look on the PC/NG version?

 

Seeing that they now have 3D grass, the snow texture that was loaded on top of the regular textures may not look as nice. It would make the 3D grass look white, which means that it would look like white grass, rather than snow based on how the effect works. Obviously Rockstar isn't going to model snow drifts into the game as the snow effect is only used one day out of the year (all year round for Modders that want it). They may make a snow drift model that generates in place of the 3D grass, or they may just disable the grass all together.

 

So what are your thoughts on this?

They should really add seasons to the game to get different weather and NPCs wearing appropriate clothes for that season, no bikinis when it's snowing for example. As days passes by really fast in the game.

I don't know if you guys know this, but it doesn't snow in Los Angeles. The most we get is hail. So I doubt it'll be in the game, unless they give us access to NY.

They're not gonna be focusing on Snow anyway. I'd love to see 3D snowfall though. Ofcourse it won't be like NYC or any other states in USA. Snow's quite a different deal in LA. The mountains should have snow on them at all times I think. That'd seem reasonable.

Well I see 2 options. 

 

#1 - We`ll see snow only on Xmas like we did on 360/PS3

 

#2 - They`ll bring a fully playable North Yankton as a DLC for the snow lovers.

 

They have already made a part of North Yankton, so I think it would make sense that they`d continue developing it and later release it as another city. Maybe that will be like a pre-order bonus. That would seriously boost their pre-order sales. Unless they have already announced the pre-order bonuses, I haven`t been really keeping up on the whole thing.

If they don't bring it back the modders will find a way. I f*cking love PC gaming.

Um did you ever saw snow in real life? Snow covers grass and grass will be flatten, because snow is quite heavy.

Inevitable, it's in the game files!

I have. However making it like that, just for Christmas would require a lot of modeling, just for something that your only supposed to see only one day out of the year.
