I'm newbie at modding so please be kind,

 

I've imported some buildings to the original GTA SA (no multiplayer) and tried to remove some objects to replace them by the new inserted ones, using MEdv032, but in vain. The game crashed and the ipl file of the map is damaged.

 

So is it possible to delete objects from map to be replaced?

and are mta map editor and sa-mp capable of removing objects from the original game (no multiplayer mode)?

 

thanks for answering me

removing lines from ipl file can cause a LOD link failure
read here about LOD
if the order of ipl lines change, then the LOD can loose the linking and let game crash

so what should I do to clear a part of the map to insert my own part ( buildings, roads ...) ?

pleas read also this topic: http://gtaforums.com...eipl-only-lods/
 
then you should know, that the game loads the ipl files of map folder as well the connected stream.ipl files inside of gta3.img
 
removing an ipl file of map folder needs to delete the connected stream.ipl files inside of gta3.img
 
it also needs to remove the file load path inside of gta.dat
 
example:
you wanna remove LAe.ipl

then remove this line inside of gta.dat
IPL DATA\MAPS\LA\LAe2.IPL
data\maps\LA\LAe2.ipl will be ignored then, so it's not required to delete this file

But you need to delete these files inside of gta3.img:
lae2_stream0.ipl
lae2_stream1.ipl
lae2_stream2.ipl
lae2_stream3.ipl
lae2_stream4.ipl
lae2_stream5.ipl
lae2_stream6.ipl

don't forget to make backups of these files

-----------------

create an own ipl file with notepad.exe to add your own map placement
example:
create a text file and write there these keywords
inst
end
then add the placement between these keywords
inst
<placement>
end
then save the file as mymap.ipl in maps folder

then add the path in gta.dat to load your ipl
add this line in the ipl section
IPL DATA\MAPS\mymap.IPL
