What do you mean by based on "Yosemite, California Hills and Redwood"? You're actually planning on doing that?

smiley-talk011.gif some ambiguity

 

the map contains all that but in 2004 style...smiley-happy084.gif

Dwm_2014_07_26_00_35_354.png

 

89% textures on huge area are 1024 -2048 px
Yes finally...this will be normal in SA
You should know this,that I use easy and fast method-That's way this shall be released-it don't take so much time
In one month all is done...
puting realistic textures it's the easiest way-open TXD-w =Today most of you calling it PRO modding and "PROJECTS" new HD Textures...blabla..am sick of that
so countrysides,desert,what else...beach area that's all areas that have screwed up uv mapping
+
Every single lod model of normal model will be like normal original dff...If you understand what am talking

That is actually looking very good,I'd like to ask if you will consider making some steep roads in LS less....steep?

 

Edit : Nvm,doing so will require you to redefine ped paths.

That would require bigger changes to the map (changing hight of hills). I vote against big changes.

Ezekiel, your ideas are nice, but the execution is wrong.

 

First off, the 'default' versus 'new' UV. Believe it or not, the default one is more correct than your new one. What you did was made the UV space bigger so the texture covers the entire area only once. This results in a new problem, now it's completely out of proportion, compared to the roads. In addition, by doing that, you messed up the texel density (https://www.isotx.com/texture-texel-density/) which makes it look really unsharp.

 

What I think you wanted to do is to get rid of the tiled look? (the repitition you see in the texture by using it a few dozen times over and over) Now, I know off 2 better ways to get rid of it:

 

- Use a different texture with less or almost none repetitive patterns

pick any and try them out: http://www.cgtextures.com/index.php?catid=43024

 

- Use a 2nd texture that blends with the original texture. This is possible in SA by using Vertex Alpha

 

 

 

Second thing I want to explain The elevated asphalt on your road looks unnatural. Use the vertex painting tools in 3ds max to push\pull and relax vertices on the edge where the transition is. Or use soft selection for more precision.

I tried to hack the dff/mash limit on VC long ago, until a friend told me that I could have used custom collisions, 20Mb per dff file limit that I can not get around. I am truly impressed by your work.

 

I am revamping VC now, then LC but I also plan to redo parts of SA, May not have time to do it all.

 

Also be aware then high poly objects will have an effect of FPS, I started with the mind that if the mod took another 5 years to complete years computers should have picked up enough to play the maps at a decide speed.

 

LV SF smiley-signs111.gif

 

I'm not sure do I have time to finish this either ...Man this takes time..You have no idea

 

before starting rebuilding..I wanted to do just Textures...but map is Mapped horrible on many places and objects are low poly THAT SUCKS...

If I'll mod San Andreas in 2014 I'll do it like next gen games-of course until he crashed

 

most of building and trees are under 1000 MB DFF Size......2200 that's a limit if someone want to know

 

2200 faces on object is maximum

under that..Model will not show up in game

MapEditor crash when your model is over 1mb..least for me

 


smiley-shocked033.gif

dont't worry if this DIE

you will get the rest

 

 

damn puting just textures seems like good Idea

what is new-
The whole vegetation was downgraded-
Textures are in same size-but
High Poly Models are replaced
That's a very good for FPS and for gameplay+all big models like trees and rocks (spawn models in MED)

will be visible from 2000+3000 Draw Distance- smiley-think004.gif I Figured something about object.data file in data folder-it's about DD

 

 

For low PC-it will be certain Link-(gta3.img with textures Below 1024-BUT ONLY ON OBJECTS-
Terrain textures 2048-3072 will stay
Now working on replacing trees-and optimizing more low (under 1000 KB-Dff)
Some guessing:
Am working on CountrySides and Desert (vegetation)
so If I finish City-(Los Santos)=that will be Mission Imposible 5
Don't ask for finish date or something-Some of you don't have clue how slow this is and hard!

Any finish date ??? :evilgrin:

 

 

he...he...he....just kidding ! :lol:

 

 

Man...I'm not a great modder for giving any tip...sorry...but I'm engineer, and I know a lot about making plans and strategies.

 

The only advice I could give you is : Divide and Conquer !

 

Break your target in small pieces , make one piece at time, and please, release some finished pieces for your clients (users)...to keep them happy...so they can give you energy and motivation for keeping your job.

 

99% of those huge modification falls apart before the release, after years of hard working, just because modders don't follow those basic tips above.

 

 

Good luck.
