The thread that started it all

@Aztlan: Please do. That was one of the many aspects I hadn't considered. I might also need a large percentage of the audio converted as well. I haven't figured out what I want to do in leu of animated cutscenes. Torn between just text or text and audio. Most people know the missions anyways, but... What's the worst that could happen? If it doesn't turn out good, we could just go back to the way it was.

 

@Lix: The radio stations are a good idea... BUT they would be so large that it would be indistributable. It's going to be one of those things that will be the discression, responsibility of the user. Besides, doesn't VC have more stations than GTA3 anyways?

As you fly around the city, you can strange paths taking place. If I had to guess, it was probably easier for Knux to just use all the existing paths and slowly switch them over to LC. If you look IN GAME in the areas he says he's finished, you'll find flawless paths. So I wouldn't worry about that just yet wink.gif EVERY aspect of this mod is going to take time.

You're right Demarest, I started first with the VC paths.ipl to have a guide to know how they were working. After , when the path editor was released, I continued to work with is by moving existing paths from VC (what is easier) If you take a look on the first part of the City, The Redilight District and St. Mark Area. all traffic is done here, if you see any wrong things happening, just tell me, I'll try to fix it wink.gif

 

@Veg

 

all the paths you are seeing on the left are from VC, I didn't modifed those still in place. teh place you say you are worried

about is the brigde, I started but I stopped to work since I was alone to work. I just wanted to do all parts where the road splits in 2 half with only one dirrection.

 

I'm using the Radar map from the game for guide and I'm using a PlayerPos to put paths at the good place. Don't worry, when everything will be finished, nothing from VC will remains wink.gif

I'll wait until you're finished first. No use in critiquing work that's still being worked on wink.gif

 

Are you sure VC can accomodate the amount of paths LC will require? LC seem to have a LOT more.

@knux wello under the calahan bridge there is a boatyard where you must talk with Maria in mission last requests and the traffic is going through the wall there. I have seen a sanchez driving on the water too, i can take some pics if you want...

 

PS: I'm converting the radio stations atm.

Radio wouldn't be a big problem,i have 500 megs,and for short-time hosting i could do some of the stations,i also would be able to do them,for the charitors there would be a bigger problem,the onlyest things that can be done easily are the SWATs and MILITARYs

user posted image

but i think the mainproblem with the people would be the maincharitors and the Cubans,the most Mafiapeople are done very fast,but the cubans are a hardpiece because of their hat ...

also normal Cops could be a problem because they have a jacket in gta3,but noone has a jacket in GTAVC,and also the hat isn't anywhere in GTAVC,so Cops are also hard to do ...

OK i have converted wav to mp3 and then mp3 to adf and then zipped them and rared them and I got a 203 megabytes file... My host says i can't host more than 50 megabytes so someone else convert them please...

that means that if the person wants the radio stations, he or she will need to do them by themselves, and is the legal way

 

you will need to write a tutorial for it

 

that size is too big,

AS I told u, those are paths from Vice City. that's really normal to see people/cars in wall/water/air/weird places.

 

all those things will be fixed

 

btw, for the bridge thing, I only have to change teh Z coordinate (which isn't done yet) I plan to start working back on them in the next days. Stay tunned for more updates tounge.gif

Hey Knux,

I've noticed that sometimes cars are driving on the wrong side of the road, and at one part a car is almost doing a 360 degree turn. Well, its just sorta weird. Dem, I wish there was something I could do to help out on this new mod.

This is the logo I posted a long time ago. It says Grand Theft Auto Liberty City, so I thought it would suit GTA: LC pretty well.

 

Theres 2 versions.

 

I could just remove the little "GTA World" text.

@ totter this mod is not related to gtaworld

I am interested in doing this part (because it bugs me lol)

 

 

6) MANY items that are 2D are only showing up on one side. I've read this is an easy fix, but will take time just trying to identify which ones need attention. Seems like I'm finding new ones all the time.

 

(This happened to me when creating cars sometimes)

 

however I'll be needing a link or an explaination of the easy fix

 

BTW have anyone else noticed:

Street Lamps are sometimes incorrectly placed on the Z axis?

You mean like this?

I'm glad to hear that you want to do that part. That was the part I was dreading the most smile.gif I cannot find the thread I was thinking of where somebody posted a pic of stair railings (I think it was in Joey's garage). All I could find was this. Hope it helps. If not, you or I could post a screen in the texture editing forums and see if anybody knows. Or maybe somebody in the know will pop in here.

 

@totter: Yeah, those screens are too WO. And too happy for GTA3 tounge.gif I look forward to your next offerings smile.gif

 

@Lix: Yes you can get to ghost town (I put a pic in the other thread). North of Staunton, the wall you see in the distance is not solid. You have to swoop around that way. I haven't figured out why the game crashes if you try to go back there the traditional way. I wonder how VC acts when you're in that area.

It always was... sneaky2.gif

 

There is a good aspect of it though. I was always told that there is a couple small spots that are solid. Even with the aid of the Admin Console, I was never able to find them. First time back there with a heli and I found it!

There are 2 Vice City looks when you see the screenshots:

 

THe Hud and the Radar.

Why not make the radar yellow like the old one?

 

I am working on making the hud correct, I will replace all the shotgun hud pictures by the one of GTA3 btw.

 

Can I change these colors with some GXT modding tool?

 

Demarest: Can you help my by putting only 1 type of shotgun on the map? And offcource only 1 gun (the handgun, not the colt thing) and all smile.gif

I've already thought of the old orange radar GTA3 used. I will do that next time I have time (prob Wed). I only did it like that to start off with because WO was using JayBee's map and I wanted them to be able to use it too. But you're right, the authentice would be the way to go. The hud weapons icons can all be changed IMO. Just replace them with the ones from GTA3 should be easy enough. Not sure though. Good idea. But no, the color of the hud for money/health/time/armor is hard-coded. The coloration of all other onscreen text is in the GXT though. Once we convert the GXT from GTA3 to VC, then we can see which ones need to be recolored. We could also put in GTA3's font TXDs. Just keep in mind that when it displays district/car names, it is hard-coded to write them diagonally.

 

As for only one gun, it has already been done. The Nomad v2 mod has all the weapons already distributed. I need to change something though (just occured to me). In it, I made the Uzi replace the Uzi. But we need to replace it with a gun that can be fired while walking. I'm thinking the one that has a pickup by the van right outside of the boatyard. Anybody know which that is? I'll look into it when I get time. Here's the weapons though: fist, bat, handgun, uzi, sawed-off shotgun, ruger, minigun, sniper rifle, rocket launcher, flamethrower, molotov cocktail, grenade. These were picked to be 1:1 repacements for GTA3's weapons. Unless somebody can come up with better replacements (just bring them up here). Also, somebody could edit weapons.dat to reflect the weapon behaviors of GTA3's weapons. If somebody does that, remember to turn OFF is_heavy for the minigun since in GTA3 you COULD jump while holding an M16.

i would think off that:

Colt45 - Colt45

UZI - INGRAM MAC 10 (you're right,the one next to the VC-Port)

Shotgun - Chromegun (the one of GTA3 was a Policeversion of a M870,the Chromegun is a Stockversion of the M870,so ...)

AK47 - Ruger

M16 - M60 (i think a gun like the M16 can't hold 500 rounds,also the M60anims a more like the GTA3M16 one's,also you can replace the M60.dff with a M4.dff and than it would even be like a M16 but wouldn't use the Assault Rifleslot (like the Ruger/ak47 does)

Rocketlauncher - Rocketlauncher

Flamethrower - Flamethrower

Grenade - Grenade

Molotov - Molotov

Bat - Bat

 

-----

And as Secret i would put a MP5 in the game,but that gun could only be accuired by holding it during a mission,also a Python would be nice,and the fight-stick should also stay in,the rest is not necesarry (UZI,SAWN-OFF,TEC9,M4,Minigun,Most meleeweapons)
