[WIP | REL] 2dfx & prelighting


atfburner

Recommended Posts

This started out as small prelighting fixes for addition to Things To Do in SA

since my stuff is not exclusively for deezire's mod it also means maybe

you want to add some of these to your own mod, thats ok too smile.gif

 

To keep things feeling fun my models fix list is deliberately low (theres a LOT

of bugs in vanilla SA with night time colours ect) i dont wanna know how many tounge.gif

So please dont post about the mashed up NVC you saw on an object somewhere in SA.

 

Most are small changes but an end result im happy with, along with some

mods with added 2dfx. Take what you want, comments welcome.

Nice work, mate. the NVC fix is a great addons, and the 2dfx is also awesome, realistic. You made your own particles or these are from SA?

The particle stuff was fun to make, always wanted to see that dood in

hashbury smoke his joint once you make a change another 10 ideas

pop along, the 2dfx released in pack 1 all use default particles used

in new ways.

the plan is to do some new particles one day even if theres no visual

editing tool and were all still using notepad text > check result > text way.

i would like to see fireflys in sa and some cool neon effects smile.gif

Started on the bowling alley last night, colour matching hasnt realy

been an issue on previous stuff and wanted to add 2dfx along with

neons so im doing all the NVC work at the very last. Hoping this

turns out as nice as in the mind

 

 

the illumination around the bowling ball was originally just one light

that caused some issues with visabilty but now there 33 very very

small ones tbh havent decided which to go with yet

bowling alley looks great.

 

this is a really nice idea, and tuff nuts in SF looks great at night, i was wonderin after youve done the alley if you could do market station in LS (the underground one) - the lighting is horrid, and any peds or cj show up near pitch black - and it could be a really cool place (ever since max payne ive had a thing for subway stations in games haha)

 

cheers and good luck with the mod

@pgtipsp

Glad your enjoying these, i was starting to wonder if the interest

wasnt so big

That market your chatting about was on my list for a while now

the plan is pretty big for it tho smile.gif

i'd like to add some nice lighting, make the stalls actually sell cool

stuff or at least add some peds behind stalls with items like bongs

 

Finally got round to finishing the bowling alley tonight, went with

the tiny lights idea and changed the neons to blue / yellow.

those new neons will needed to be added as a new timed object

details in rar.

a few new discoveries along the way making this one i love 3dmax

and SA both fustrating to work with sometimes but hugely rewarding

when you get it right.

bowling alley looks fantastic ingame, reminds me of the buildings in American Grafitti

 

market sounds cool, but i meant the train station in los santos, the underground one next to the film studios, not sure if you realised what i meant or not hehe, keep it up dude

 

cheers

Nice work, it would be really nice if u will fix all that "magic" levitating grass and trees, many of vegs\trees just "flying" few meters over grass.

 

Also plese reupload file additional to another hosting, this damn rapid share makes me nervous, especialy that damn bug that appear from time to time when CAPTCHA shows 6 ot 9 symbols when input buffer just allow to enter 4 symbols... as result i cant download it becouse "code incorrect blah blah", try sendspace and few other (i hate damn rapid hostings)

Not a bug. You have to enter only the symbols that are overlapped by the cat figure.

 

There are 6 symbols, but only 4 are with the cat.

Thought i'd finished the Jetty Lounge wip posted earlier.... well maybe not

although the night prelighting is done (3 attempts later) The neon appearance

has been bugging me! Today ive been seeing how alphas in sa work, some

tests show useful stuff to make way better neons and that means a re-visit

to texture town on all previous stuff blush.gif

 

tests:

so far ...

@Bobesz

It would be nice to work on vice sometime, at the moment

im having to much fun with sa biggrin.gifa

 

@Voodooman

The levitating stuff is part of model positions which is annoying

i know when you see a lampost inside a tree or some grass 40ft

in the air cos the fix is simple enough but the binary conversion

to make the fix needs to be accurate faik theres no tool to do that.

 

I'll see about using another filehost for all dl's with next release k

new post, the last one is 6days old and big enough already

 

the transparency tests went quite well, i was going

for less sharp edged feel mostly with these tests

loosing jagged lines were the priority. SA used parts

not all of a white gradient so those were the values

used in making a new texture results in much less

jagged lines compared to the yellow wip neon posted.

while the they look less sharp now i like the smoother

feel and colour work.

as there'll be future models any feedback about these

neons would be encouraging

looks really great, much nice in pink than yellow - you should also have neon lights for the diamonds below the jetty lounge writing

The new one looks good, but i'd change the color from pink to something else.

learning new stuff in max i kinda hit a wall - then five more - but

finished the jetty lounge including all your great suggestions today hoorah!

With more models getting a neon upgrade i looked into what avalible ID's

are free and found a bunch so we can keep making for now smile.gif

@pgtipsp

had a look at the underground station, tell me more about your idea for

things to be here, like 4 benches and nothing else happing down there atm.

The lighting wasnt to dark maybe cos i use sunny weather cheat it was better?

 

@Blackmen

Great! I think you should try making the arrow flash, or make some of the small lights flicker.

the sign looks soooo good ingame - i love it!

 

here is the station - as you can see (i use no weather mods) cj is all dakr and horrible once he enters the station

ideas for lighting - i was think of a fairly coldish grey/blue lighting, with fairly deep shadows behind the pillars onto the rail tracks

 

some ref pics of subway station lighting

First the bad news:

We have 1 free model slot left! sad.gif No more neons after that can be added until

sacky's limit adjuster works or (not so good idea) I remove unimportant original models.

Work will continue on regardless but id like your opnions. The last neon slot? that will be reserved for :

Started working on vice city last night, (Bobesz will be happy tounge.gif)

@Bobesz

 

My first animation tests were on this model & like you i wanted flashing stuff,

but it all failed horribly with the arrow cos you cant use alpha channel.

But now you mention it i reckon a letter from "jetty lounge" flickering could be

doable with no need for alpha.

 

@pgtipsp

Good ideas! your pics along with http://mic-ro.com/metro/metroart.html have many sources

of inspiration, things i already like to do are add phone booth and make the lighting

realy heavy on contrast

 

@all

Thx for the feedback biggrin.gif

I was playing vice city in the last few days and i noticed lots of bugs. Most of them were two sided bugs or col errors.
