McSim's Weather ReMake #1 - Athmospheric


mcsim2401

Recommended Posts

Hello, this weather mod was in private development until now. So, I introduce to you my new weather remake. It aims to make game brighter and focuses on athmosphere, but I couldn't forget about realistic.

Also I'm making similar weather remakes for such conversions as San Vice and SA:LC.

 

Some features (briefly):

- More realistic skies

- More realistic lighting

- High color correction

- Big variety of sunrises and sunsets

- Smog effect restored

- Bigger difference between each locations' weathers

- Improved Dynamic Object lighting

- Darker nights (but not the most dark)

 

Los Santos, 06:00 ("EXTRASUNNY LA" & "SUNNY SMOG LA"):

GTA 3. SA would be cool though for those who would like it for SALC.

 

I don't have many pictures. Just this E3 video.

Not so high difference. Only sunrises and sunsets more remindes hell (bright-orange clouds, bright horizon skies), more brighter at all and some sun colors is different.

 

BTW here's my VCS rain sunset recreation. But I will make it used rarely ingame, you will see basicly other sunset, more "cloudy":

I making new combination of desert weathers: Clear (with blue skies), Dusty (like cloudy, but with dust visible on distance) and Storm instead of both similar extrasunny and sunny (feels like cloudy actually) and stormy.

Here's a sketch of dust sunrise (it's one of all weathers with soft sun color if playing with PS2 effects):

I'm liking it, I never took a look at altering the weather effects for rain.

I wish I had a purple sky @ home ..

 

I think a quick 20sec video would be more appropriate flicking through the times for a certain weather cycle.

 

Keep up the good work; btw.. are you using Fastman's CLEO to mod the timecyc?

i like the timecycles, exept that purpulish one, i think you should make it a little less colorful, but still purple

The reason they're going for a purple sky is to match that of Los Angeles. Here's what Los Angeles looks like around sunset with a purple sky:

I say they come pretty close to it!

look at the athmospher i'ts dark but the sky isn't. look in his timecyc, the athmospher it's to purple, but as I said he need to make less colorful (darker), the sky is good, but maybe he should made it like the screen, but its his choice

Although I agree it's not perfect, just give the modder time though. This isn't finished yet. I do hope the final version looks like this though.

Bad news guys, I lost my old timecyc (accidentally replaced it with another), but it's occasion to create a better version. Now all basical weather settings is restored (Almost all Midday and Midnight cycles is ready now) and I make it looking good with Project Oblivion. BTW, here's new realistic rain weather (comparsion with original) and made some little improvements to San Fierro clear skies (all this will be in my new timecyc):

Here's new Los Santos clear weather (bright orange color - it's feature, like in PS2 GTA SA):

BTW for cloudy days will be used some color corrections too, but It's low powered:

Los Santos - Red

San Fierro - Blue

Las Venturas - Yellow

Countryside - Green

Pics will be soon.
