Seems like you need to edit YDD embedded Normal Maps, I tried to extract and edit with PS + NVIDIA Tools for DDS but it refused to open...

It was all black.

 

How it looked in-game

So, you still get pockets.

The model needs to be edited, pocket buttons still stay.

Unfortunately I'm worthless at editing normal maps so it looks like it was literally painted over with a brush (it was), but it's still something :p

What's different with that cable car?

Pay close attention to details. The top part was remodelled, they removed all dirt/rust textures from it.

 

Yeah, but Mega is right, Michael was the main character in Beta because of the "player_zero". It's clear that in trailer 1 the protagonist switch exists in 2011 because Franklin drives the PestControl van, while Michael is the passenger and got out from the van.

 

I think Trevor didn't appear in trailer 1 because he was the main antagonist (main antagonists in major cases don't show up in first trailers) and I doubt that the game had 3 options in the past. I think only one option: Kill Trevor, whats makes sense. But probably rockstar thought that the fans could be disappointment, because Trevor is BADASS, so they add 3 options, thats my opinion. And when I saw Trailer 2 in 2012, I had no doubt that this creepy guy (trevor) could be the main antagonist. This In TRAILER TWO, then you imagine this "creepy guy" showing up in trailer 1, I think rockstar was smart, everybody for sure could think that he's the antagonist in trailer 1 because of his stereotype.

 

Well, other thing, I think Trevor maybe appeared in trailer 1, but not showing your face. He's probably appear piloting planes. I think it's him trolling the farmers with pesticide, piloting the HYDRA between buildings in a risky way or could be piloting the Shamal at the end. Why? Because only him have flying skills.

Correct! According to the devlog mentions, Michael and Franklin existed at least 5 months before Trailer 1, which was November 2011. Their first mentions were in June 2011.

Trevor already existed ingame at least 4 months before Trailer 1 came out. His first mention was in July 2011.

Eu duvido mano

 

http://gta.wikia.com/wiki/Rush_Casting_Call

 

March 2011, the game had the most of the history complete, only thing that needed to complete the cast was that main and secondary characters. I really don't think that in 2011 in GTA V, Rockstar used "NIKO BELLIC" model to test the game and missions. And other proof of that is the leaked beta screenshot, that shows Michael probably in march~jun 2011:

 

 

RailwayEnvironment1.jpg?format=1500w

 

 

I think the 3 protagonists exists since 2010, but New Model of Michael doesn't mean that is a complete new one. Maybe a remodeled remastered model.

 

 

 

And of course, trailer 1 shows up Michael, the "balcony guy", with ardosia suit. I have 3 proofs that this suit was the main suit of Michael, not the gray suit one. First, this screenshot up ahead, shows the ardosia suit. Second, the trailer show exacly the ardosia suit:

 

 

 

sN617CY.png

 

z9rGkeW.png

 

OBS: It's not the GRAY SUIT!! Just look at the color of the suit in his neck.

 

l2HmqZf.png

 

 

 

And third proof, In Michael's House, the FIRST suit on the list is the Ardosia suit.

 

 

bAKhENl.png

 

 

 

 

As you can see, nothing to do with alphabetical order, so it was really the main suit of the Michael, because it's the first of the list. Only this leftover can really prove that.

 

In final version, the main suit is that...

ANDD.... of course, Michael "Beta":

Outra coisa, onde vc achou essa lista de logs?

The buildlogs are legit and originate from the PS3/360 version of GTA V. They were leaked before the announcement of PC/PS4 versions, and we got further confirmations of a PC version with them back then. Here's a link if you want to read.

https://cc22940c89d9789d10745c91568757dc1457c060.googledrive.com/host/0B-JdId1SslCJNEIweDFobGl2MzA/builds.xml

It also mentions the date they removed the old GTA IV radar and replaced it with the new one. We used the devlog to also have an idea of the timestamp the screenshots by the dev Jonathan Gwyn were taken.

Also, you kinda misunderstood what I meant to say. I wasn't saying they didn't exist prior to the dates I mentioned, I just said these are the first direct mentions of their names in the logs :) Also good one on that suit, didn't realise it before.

Officer Ronson
The destroyed Police Maverick prop that the player shoots down during the Paleto Heist still has the Trailer 1/old GTA IV Maverick model.

 

p_crahsed_heli_s.ydr (not my typo, it's really called like that)

False, this Maverick model is actually from the Bureau Heist.

Omg vlw I knew it!! I knew that the minimap was in beginning of 2012 square

 

Well, I think the screenshot from jonathan gwyn that shows the square minimap is from beginning of 2012 OR could be the first test of a probably new radar, beginning of 2011. One thing that make me doulbt about this screenshot was in 2012 is because of the poor model of the mountains and less trees and grass than the final game itself. 2012 GTA V already had good mountain models, the proof was the trailer 1. AND..... in the log says "3D minimap", but in screenshot doesn't have it.

 

Well, like I said, I think it was a test radar from 2011, not a definitly radar to put in the game, thats why, in the screenshot, only have a health bar. If they really wanted to put a definitly new radar on GTA V, they must had to put the armor bar and special bar. But I believe that the radar could be like that after the tests (2012)

 

KIpUMrH.png

 

Dont make sense a "white bar" under the health bar, since the others screenshots dont have it. And I think the Special Bar didn't work in the beta, as you can see in all the screenshots, the special bar is empty.

 

And what is "Hotswap"?

If you test it at night, it might give you weird, bright and f*cked up results...

It will be 10x worse if you just copy the file over.

I lazily copy n' paste replaced some lines, perhaps I shouldn't change some stuff, but it wouldn't look so similar, I guess.

To be honest, I did it for "the lulz" I actually have little to no idea how these work, CP, and his friend who made VisualIV and VisualV know better

This thread continues to get better and more interesting as time goes on.

I don't know why, but seeing pre-release build logs is very interesting a bit exciting.

You want to play the GTA 5 beta version? Buy PS3 / Xbox 360 version ... PC version is far from this.

EDIT (didn't merge oops):

BTW, DaGeneratorX.

You should try using the uppr_016 model on player_one.

I just compared it to the beta screenshot. The model actually matches.

This IS actually the beta shirt model:

Will attempt to recolor it using the normals, wish me luck guise.

 

Goddamn GIMP doesn't want to open this, what the f*ck?

Seems like they started to work on it to add more details but ended up dropping it and creating a brand new model which is the final one... the 3 protagonists' main outfits were all remodelled some time before the Gameplay Trailer.

On image with Trevor, Franklin Shirt didn't had upper pockets, on your screenshot, it does.

 

So, not exactly beta model then?

Probably after Trailer 2, I think it's the final model before this screenshot: http://www.igta5.com/images/official-screenshot-franklin-surveys-the-port.jpg

 

This screenshot shows the complete new model of the shirt

 

Edit: Hey guys, look that

We only for now have beta screenshots of countryside, sadly, but anyways, I think Los Santos is more like this in 2010~2011, without shadows on the buildings in a far distance, what do you guys think?

 

 

 

 

 

 

The image is a CONCEPT

Man, I would kill to have that IV radar in V PC.

That's a great mockup. Game most likely looked like that in that period, as you said. Good work.

 

It's a mockup, right? It looks really legit. Good work! :O

He says it's a concept too. It noticeably doesn't look like Jon Gywn's screens.
