How to make realistic radar

Recommended Posts

xmen

Required things :

 

Autodesk 3ds max 9

IMG Manger V.1.5

X Scripts V.1.5

X Radar Editor

 

 

Hello guys, through this tutorial we gonna learn how to make realistic radars for GTA SA in fastest and easiest way.

 

 

First of all extract the required dffs and textures in one folder and run 3ds Max 9, now we need to import the IPL. To do this, run 'X Script Manager' and then click on 'X Importer' next click on 'Import IPL' and rest is up to your common sense.

 

Importing IPL may take several minutes, depends on your pc performance. When IPL imported, open 'Customize' menu and select 'Configure User Paths...', in 'External Files' tab add the texture path. When done, do not forget to check the path you have just added(this is buggy in vista, you need to select any subdirectory to add the parent directory).

 

Next, run 'X Radar Maker' script. Select the 'Target Directory'. Now we have 2 choices. First if you need to render all 144 images then just click on 'Generate Radars' and Second is if you need some specified radar(s) then just enter radar index(es) (if there are indexes then use (,) comma as splitter and do not use any space) and press the button under it.

When done, close 3ds max and run 'X Radar Editor', click on 'Import' >> 'Import Tile(s)' >> Select all those exported images from 3ds max.

Now, click on 'Export' >> 'Export Tiles' >> 'As TXDs' >> 'Exists' and make a new folder and save in it (folder MUST be empty).

Next, open gta3.img in IMG Manager, click 'Edit' >> 'Bulk Replace' and select that folder where you just exported the txd.

Rebuild the archive.

You can import water using script(I forgot its name, you can search around)

You'd rather get a thing called GTA SA Recoverer that gathers files from your SA DVD if you f*ck things up. It backs them up...

Ok. i'll have a look thanks.

 

 

 

Sorry, I actually just rerendered all the images and the white lines were gone. weird.

 

And for the record, it does work. And if you don't backup your files you deserve to get screwed wink.gif

Required DFFs, you can get their names from IPL file. And no TXD but the images in it.

It is working only with Autodesk 9 because I have 2010 and I put X Scripts V.1.5 on Scripts and still my Autodesk doesn't recognized them. I mention that I have AMS MAX SCRIPT too installed where the Autodesk does recognize him.

DFFs of models those names are written in IPL, you can find them in either in gta3.img or in other IMGs

 

 

@-BLITZ- : I never used 3ds Max 2010, worked good for me on 9.

Maybe your problem is this:

Solution: Before you import/export the map to/from X Radar Editor, uncheck Options => Show Radar Border.

 

And yes, you have to edit the water manually like I did in this pic, with photoshop (there's a script, but I don't know his name). But photoshop is easy-to-use program.
