No you cant climb ladders in any version. It is believed climbing ladders was one of the features R* had put in the game but taken out when they ran out of space.

Which explains why many docks around the airport in SF had them. Now we have to drive a Coastguard to land like a sucker... mad.gif - Holmes

IF they dident have all trees and stones and sh*t in the desert they may have hade space for some things... but they wanted us to drive in to stuff when out going off-road. Sweet stupid Rockstar.

 

It's in the deasert all thos little things are.

If you knew any modding you would know that what you just said is complete bull sh*t.

 

The model, texture and collision files for each object is around 100 kb's which is a very small amount of space. And then to place the item ingame it requires two lines of text in a file two lines of text is equal to about 20 bytes of data an extremely small amount.

 

Wereas the coding for climbing ladders and the animations is probably a few mb's which is a considerably bigger amount of data than a few bytes and kb's.

 

In essence the trees and rocks are not the reason climbing ladders isn't ingame it's the fact that R* got above their heads and put too many features in the game, maybe they expected a few of the features to go wrong while they were designing them who knows.

BUT, if you really want to utilise the ladders, why not borrow part of spaceeinstein's All in one mod (with his permission of course) where holding JUMP for a few seconds allows u to leap on top of any wall. It will kinda suck, but it's the best you can do...or is it?

The fact that GTA has not got a "climb ladder" function is one of the things that the Driver (most especially Driv3r) has had a go at. Sort of a bit of a warspark, as what the "Lousy Tanner" cutscene in SA was.

those things are for realism. plus, coding dosen't take that much space for a thing as small of climbable ladders, or even moving tanker boats!

if climbing ladders was a feature that may have been, wouldn't it be possible to accesss it with the rigt knowledge? (obviously not in the console versions)

In theory, yes. But in practace....prolly not. Hot coffee was made by finding the original code in the game files, and (in dumb talk) re enabling it. If climing a ladder was possible, then there would almost certainly be references that would have already been found and it would also need some animation. Now i'm not that skilled, so i cant say if there is or isnt as i havnt looked. If rockstar implemented this but took it out because of disk space, chances are that they deleted all/most of it. If there is something left in, i'm sure it would have been found by now but might not be enough to use.

So using my minute modding knowledge, my guesss is no. Sure, as you said, if there is enough left then it may be salvagable, but i would say not. Perhaps this is the time that someone more experianced posts and completely contradicts what i've said!

It does suck that with all the ladders around San Andreas, you can't climb them. I understand that they may have taken the feature out due to space, but couldn't they have removed something else less usefull? I would gladly trade Zero's missions or the Valet missions for the ability to climb a ladder.

Maybe some codeconverting folkes from GTa-forums can find a code for Climbing a ladder like they found one for hot coffie.I think it is still in game disc but still removed from game when you play it

The "code" for climbing ladder doesn't exist in San Andreas and it doesn't take much space in San Andreas. Probably a few KB large and that is it. If you want a mod that makes you "climb" (teleports) you up or down the ladder, I might be able to make one for you.

So all is talking about space and coding, why doesn't someone just make a climbing ladder mod?
