[STORIES/REL] Converted Maps

Recommended Posts

MAJEST1C_R3

VCS optimised models tested now, patcher for VC written for v1.0 and v1.1 .

I think map converter will be released on this week if I don't find any bugs in it

Did you convert collision for maps? It's good to have Stories map on VC/SA, but I'd like explore map using car or bike.

Yes (look for them at first page), but collisions not linked with models and have different IDs

I'm happy to read about this. Would be great if the collisions could be linked with objects. Generally, the more can be automated the better.

Unfortunately after a lot of tries to find some links between models and collisions I have no result :/. Also I don't have found links between normal models and LODs. In Stories instead of single IPL files used hundreds of frequently switching worlds which have it local coord system. Here for examlpe one of those worlds (Red - near, other - LOD).

As you see single world of the map contains only few highpoly models near center of local coord system and a lot of lowpoly models which we call LODs, Instead of checking for every model on the map distances of appearing from player position in Stories used checking only world local position from player, so if player located near necessary radius from world local position - game load whole world and all models in it no matter has player all those models on sight or not.

I LOVE this! Great work my man. Great work indeed!

 

EDIT: Could you put up a temporary link? As its still awaiting approval.

Will be great, if you find a way matching Lods, cols and hi-poly models like in III/VC/SA. Still good work.

Why do we need a converter if you released the maps? :p

1) Fixed bug with pixelated textures in VC

 

2) Added automated optimization procedure which discard a lot of unused stuff.

 

3) Included backface culling patcher for VC

 

4) Gives to users ability to customise converting process as they wish

We just need LCS, and VCS to GTA III, LCS and VCS to GTA IV, and LCS and VCS to GTA V (when it is out). :p

In Stories used very interesting map system. Here how it looks like:

Each dot = world, which has its models placed relatively from its local coord system. Now count how much worlds the map contains at all :)

There is nothing that labels models as lods anywhere?

So much triangles, looks like LC is Illuminati's city.

I can't find anything for both collisions and LODs. :/

I made a mass LOD exporter, which exports LOD's from models (let's say you have 6 dff's imported, it allows you to export all of the LOD's from those models) But having to sort the games real models, and LOD's would take quite a while.

Collisions don't even get a relative offset like IV?

Collisions have it own IPL which uses standard coord system.

... then just implement a bunch of fake CBuildings without/with fake model indices like IV and clone those which match a base building?

Also where are the map object names which are referenced from the SCM header (like Callahan Bridge models) stored?

 

(in addition, GTA could easily be changed to use 'world-local' streaming, this is what I don't like about people who provide just a tool without any format documentation to perform missing tasks such as finding object names, placing fake collisions and even reworking streaming)

1) Collisions can be generated directly from models while converting them but they will contain so many faces and I don't sure - will that collision work or just cause crash the game while loading.

 

//

2) I think this data should be in DTZ or ELF
