GTA 3 remains the same as v1.0. I'm not exactly sure what the draw distance limit is on GTA 3, and as far as I know, a tool hasn't been made for GTA 3 to adjust limits.

I'm pretty sure its possible. But I have no idea how to do it.

 

Anyway, small update! Patch for Vice Cry users. You can download it here!

Silent

Making entire area act as a single island via ZON file editing would do the trick, BUT it has plenty of disadvantages too - mainly broken R3 missions and wasted/busted restart points.

I'm pretty sure you only need to edit the Timecyc if you wanted to see the third island from the first one.

Nope, third island is loading only when we are on second island.

Timecyc have nothing to do with that.

 

 

Edit:

 

I found GTAIII hiLod mod, fixed problems with broken third island, but some objects disapears : <

You're right. I changed the Timecyc and still can't see the third island.

EDIT: The water isn't meant to go out that far since you normally can't see it with mods. You normally can't go that high without III Aircraft.

 

EDIT2: Change the ZON file. The third island loads now although it the LOD's don't have their draw distance set to go that far. I had to scope in to see it.

EDIT3: Another quick screen. Showing both islands from the third.

You can always see all three island from third.

 

What about replacing LOD models with normal ones?

If it would work we have no loadscreens and no lods = cool!

The only way to remove the load screens is to edit the main.scm. Even if you make all three islands one it'll still load when crossing the bridges.

But then you cant load old savegames, not too good.

 

Maybe cleo can solve problem?

 

In GTA III hiLOD mod they replaced lod with normal models and look a lot better

Too be honest, I just did the really boring stuff. If anything you should be thanking guys like DK22Pac for his easy to use tools. And ThirteenAG + SilentPL for their fancy Flicker fix which allows this many objects on the map without it flickering.

Yeah i know. also thanks to them. And of course you too because you did the job.

I didn't knew this was possible. Editing DFF with RWAnalyze, it's been since 2006 so I forgot all the stuff about it.

I used it mainly for adding lights to DFF vehicles like neon. Kinda stupid as we have improved.

SA keeps improving so the devs too tounge.gif

Just released an update for the GTAIII version + a compatibility patch for GTAIII HD!

 

All the distances for GTAIII are now changed. Although, you might notice a REALLY rare flicker in some areas of the map.

Just a little question, is it possible to extend the distance of those objects you did for SA?

Like seeing the lights from more far distance?

Making the distance of coronas even further on SA? I'm sure its possible. But the game seems to have a limit on how much can be on the screen at once. It doesn't crash the game if you go past the limit, it just won't spawn that many objects on the screen no matter how high you put the distance. Of course, I'm pretty sure someone can hack this limit, I know the VC limit adjuster allowed me to increase the distance even further than the limit of 300 to 599. Although, I could've went higher, I didn't because every value after 599 just gave flickering and bugs.

Alright, thanks for clearing things up.

I would have tried to increase it myself but I saw the far clip is 5000.000000 after exported the 2dfx from a DFF file.

If that value didn't help, then I don't see the reason increasing the value to make it work.

 

Did you also increased those striplights in LV? Those lights around palmtrees?

And some other lights too?

The only things I increased were the lampposts and streetlights right now. I'll most likely do more but not right now.

 

Also, the 2dfx in a DFF file will only load if the host object itself is spawned in. Which is the reason I increased the distance in the generic folder for the lampposts and pretty much everything else in the generic folder.

Ah yeah, those .IDE and .IPL files. Always makes me pull my hairs out of my ass.

Too diffcult.

 

Well, the mod will gonna be very great if you do the other lights too.

Sure not right now.

Anyway, think I found a possible solution for fixing the holes in the map.

Can you upload it on mediafire?

It won't load for me.

 

And I fixed those holes in map myself by reducing the farclip from 1,500 to 1,000

No need to too far distance. It's no fun when having those extended lamp lights but the map is way too far.

It's good to find the balance between the right farclip of the map and the extended lamppostlights.

It's only a screenshot. I would upload it to another site but I'm too lazy to change the image type.. try the link later and it should work. Or try this link. - http://gyazo.com/d64f856745ef9667e4ef728faebe054f
