Good consistency, keep it up.

 

Are the shadows done through dff models with a shadow alpha?

Speaking of LODS, in my opinion they are unnecessary. I have seen a few nice mods for SA getting rid of them completely or replacing them with the HQ counterparts. I think you should consider doing something like that.

Problem is you want it to be optimized to load only high models when you close.Why waste memory when you can save it and load what's needed.

DON'T !

 

LOD is necessary for stability sake !

 

Those "few nice LOD mods" are very experimental, and problematic as Hell.

 

I agree about extending Normal-Draw distance (300 is too short, I've put 900 on my game). But never that absurd distance those LOD mods do !

 

I also agree of making LOD models with a bit more quality. (never HQ though)

 

LOD becomes more and more necessary as you replace vanilla models for HQ ones.

 

For expererimentation...try to use Projet Oblivion Trees together with Draw distance extended (up to 3000 he..he). All you will get is Crashes every 2 minutes (probably crashes during Loading screen).

Wait...wat......

 

-LOD don't have shadows

-Shadows is not on dff

-Shadow is not alpha texture-(If you mean on that)

-Shadow is on collision mesh -It's shadows like all normal shadows

-I'm making LOD for every map dff who have lod already

-Because it's better for gameplay-AND YOU CAN'T EVEN SPOT A DIFFERENCE

-Because it's perfect lod with 128 64 32 textures

-When you get enough far away you can't see is it model hq or lod-

-BECAUSE THIS ISN'T SAN ANDREAS OLD MAP

 

CAN YOU SEE NOW

Not so sure if you were talking to me...but I loved every single line you wrote above ! (mostly that "Sunday" word..he..he).

 

Yes...I know pretty much what LOD is...and mostly I know how important for stability it is...that's the reason I tryed to explain to our very friend speccy.

 

Thank's god you have created LOD for every one of your models !

I also pretty much know what the function of a LOD is.
As far as I understood though, the city will be updated with more detailed models. Regular LODs wouldn't suit the new environment quite as nicely, so it's definitely good that OP is making custom LODs for the new models.

I suggested not using LODs at all for the reason that it would unquestionably improve the overall visuals in the game. Having said that, i'm not claiming that it would result in any improvements in terms of performance or stability; obviously not, but it CAN be done and, in my opinion, is worth some "experimentation".

 

The mod i was referring to did not have draw distances exceed 1500, not to mention anything close to 3000. I see the point you're making on high quality vegetation models. Vegetation is actually an area which would greatly benefit from a LOD system (which I don't know whether even originally exists). Hardware has seen significant improvement since the release of San Andreas and I don't think that some detailed buildings would be anything much to handle.

Maybe you can see:


LameSoreBighorn.gifb6bf78303688389.jpg


The second picture actually looks like a somewhat recent game. This is all irrelevant now since OP is making LODs either way, and obviously the matter is entirely up to him.

So finally, I just wanted to say, keep up the good work and i wish you the best of luck with the release!

Don't get rid of LODs, specialy with a mod of this magnitude.
SA LODless works because, well, it uses default SA models, not that much but...

What if you use mods to increase what you can see? There are mods that let you see entire SA map when you're up on the skies, that's, you are seeing LODs, which don't take much memory, now imagine a mod of this magnitude, without LODs, and you seeing ALL the high quality buildings from this mod, jesus, PC will explode.

Because maybe he knows what he's talking about. How about recent strategy games such as Banished or Sim City, just to name a few. There are different genres in the video game industry. I never said it looks impressive but if we consider the whole industry (games like minecraft..) then it indeed looks exactly somewhat decent.

We DON'T NEED HQ Lods Plugin,LINK is right

 

you will not even need plugins for objects distance-like trees....

 

I increase object distance in mapeditor (object which don't have lod)

Bigger objects like trees goes with larger distance

 

Probably you tried to increase trees distance in mapeditor

and when you are going to check it in game-It's still the same-No effect

But when You spawn tree by yourself in mapedtior

go to game and you will be able to see trees from DDistance what you put

That's how I work...+It's better because I'll spawn randomly objects-It looks better-detailed Map
