He is not forced to post updates everytime. He can also post a huge update post when he feels like doing it. He doesn't have to prove anything to you.

 

And yes, I DO compare you to them, because that comment was just as rude and pretty much mindless, especially when the author clearly stated that the mod is not dead.

First of all I know he is not forced to post updates everytime but the topic wasn't update since 2014 and it give you that feeling that you just discovered a dead mod
Second if my comment was taken as something rude I apologize for that
But as you said maybe he prepare something big for us
Let's just stop and see how things would go from now on ok ?

A dead mod is one the is no longer being developed and wont be added to in the future, This mod has not stopped and I have not given up on it, I have some more vehicles and revisions to other vehicles that I have not posted here yet, but since interest in this topic died down I went onto showing my work on other projects like the scratch vehicle in my signature.

 

I don't know who you think you are to question the me on saying the mod is not dead, I am the author and topic creator, so if anyone knows best it is me and not you.

Forget all the rest, Vice Beta Collection is the Best!

2017 Update
Celebrating 15 Years of Vice City

Over the last 15 years there has been many different Beta mods started for Vice City, although some have started with small goals, some with big, very few have actually made decent releases of content, and those that have, usually have rushed to get releases and the content is not very accurate. The goal for Vice Beta Collection is to focus on the finer details over time, instead of aiming for a full conversion mod, small aspects will be focused on and released upon completion, hopefully over time it will all contribute to becoming the Vice Beta Collection….

This topic is focusing on the Beta Vehicles of Vice City, some vehicles seem to have been designed once and then left alone with no revisions, others can be seen progressing through one or more different stages and some although never actually shown in earlier stages, had content left behind in the files which has given clues as to what they might have previously looked like.
The purpose of this topic is for discussion on changes to vehicles and to display progress made on the modification of existing vehicles into their earlier counterparts.

Forget all the rest, Vice Beta Collection is the Best!

2017 Update
Celebrating 15 Years of Vice City

Here is 4 more newly released Beta Vehicles, After happening to end up riding a Faggio the other day when testing the Beta Map I noticed there was a bit of a bug with the model when steering, and with that I decided to remake the Beta Model again myself while also doing a few further changes to it instead of fixing up TripleAs’s version, so while I was at it I also ported the changes over to the PizzaBoy too.

The Hermes is just basically a change to the Grill but I will only make the changes to the standard Hermes, from what I can see there was never any version of the Cuban Hermes with this style Grill, even in very early Beta Shots the Cuban Hermes still has the grill like in the final game so perhaps it was a thing special to that model that got adopted by the standard version later, and finally, the TopFun van has now got the different style logo on it like is pictured in the Game Manual, I originally scanned that logo and recreated it in Adobe Illustrator for my VC Xbox Cars mod so it is a real nice crisp HQ image. I also fixed the Bug with the Bumpers on the Topfun too, but these bugs also affect the Pony still.

Forget all the rest, Vice Beta Collection is the Best!

2017 Update
Celebrating 15 Years of Vice City

8 More Beta Vehicles are now available, I have done my best to judge the looks of the Beta Banshee based on all the crappy pictures of it that are not very big or clear, I think the headlights might need to be made bigger, I’m not too happy with it so if we get into a bit of a discussion on it or things that need changing on it I might redo it again, next the FBI Washington was something I was not looking forward to doing because of all the bugs on it, apart from porting the changes over from the Beta Washington I also had to fix a few things, being, there was no side moulding on the front quarter panels damage model, there was no cracked glass texture on the damaged door models and the body was obviously narrower at some point as the doors and quarter panels stuck inside the car in spots.

The Freeway was mostly a texture replacement job, changing the Body Map and brightening the chrome, but I also replaced the wheels with more rounded models from the Xbox Version (Only the Tyre, I kept the PC Spokes). Most of the work on the Idaho was to do with texturing, changing the textures and remapping a couple spots for things like the headlights and boot garnish, also badges had to be added to both the bonnet and boot. The Maverick just had the Primary and Secondary carcol zones changed a little to make it resemble the version pictured in the games manual, changes to the Regina were quite minimal, basically it was just adding badges to the bonnet and boot, with some retexturing of the taillights and headlights, the biggest work was done on the Tailgate with me adding back the interior parts of its model which are only on the damage model and not the ok model.

The Speeder was basically just a conversion from the Cut-scene model left behind in the games files (Not the model attached to the back of Cortez’s Yacht) the only difference is it has a windscreen and some of the textures were minorly different, Similarly, The Virgo is just the earlier version seen in screenshots known as the Cougar (as that’s what the leftover files for it are called) the model is from the PC game but I took the TXD from the PS2 Version as there is no Cougar TXD in the PC Files and converted it as some of the textures are also different from the Virgo.

Excuse the double post if you can, but....I have a sneaking suspicion the front clip on the Spand Express is the beta Mule front clip.
It looks exactly like an 80's Ford E-series grill & headlights, and we all know how R* pretty much made every vehicle in the early builds of VC look exactly like their real life counterparts.

I have considered that seeing as Rockstar tended to leave behind beta models or parts in special one off models of other vehicles, like how the Bloodring models are actually an earlier version of both the Oceanic and Glendale, they just had the new grills tacked onto them, and so forth. Similar to how the Spand is like a special one off of the Mule, they did not bother or forgot to update.

 

Its a bit like saying though, should the Washington get the side moldings put on it like the FBI one has, looking at the FBI model it has different proportions to some of the body panels to the Regular Washington, so would it be considered the Beta model, even though in all the early screen grabs there is no evidence of it. Some things are tough to call and I guess the direction on what we consider the beta model is what will set all the beta mods apart from one another.

sorry but in certain vehicles i cannot find differences (im not saying there arent) obviously this vehicle pack is high quality but you think you could detail the changes on the vehicles? like how it was done in gta SA beta cars topic (ex: added ornament on the regina)

If you open the readme for each vehicle, that is in its RAR when you download them, it has a basic short detail of each change, I have a more in-depth description on my PC, but I wont both posting that.

 

Some were just small changes in textures, and remapping some textures on the body, while other are more noticeable modeling changes.

 

I actually have been working on this again lately so will have to post some more new content soon when I get a chance.

Forget all the rest, Vice Beta Collection is the Best!

2017 Update
Celebrating 15 Years of Vice City

4 more Beta Vehicles are now available, The Sentinel and Sentinel XS are now complete and released, the changes made to the model have been based on the co-ordinates of the VCS model which was a reworked version of the beta bodyshell, basically, instead of reworking the VCS model to look like a normal VC model, I put the final VC model side by side with the VCS model and then changed the VC model according to where bits were placed on the VCS model. The textures have been changed up also to better resemble the Beta model and a couple small bugs left on the models by Rockstar have been fixed.

The Pheonix has been reworked to the best I can imagine it would have looked like based on the references we have to the early models, the front headlights have been changed to a quad design, along with a Pontiac style arrow badge between them, side air vents have been added to the front quarter panels on either side of the vehicle and the taillights have been reworked to match those pictured in the one and only image that shows the rear of the Pheonix in a beta stage.

The Deluxo has had a few changes that make it better resemble the Delorean on which it was based, the new taillights are based on the leftover texture in the games files, also, the rear bumper texture has been changed to the black plastic look that's a leftover in the TXD, the front has had the bumpers cut out to expose the grill hidden beneath, the three diamond badges previously on the front bumper have been moved onto the grill, the side mouldings have been restored to the model, with only a little piece left on a front quarter panel being the clue that they previously existed, likewise, the mouldings around the windows have been returned to the original texture, which was also based on a couple spots where a leftover of the old texture was still on the models window channel in spots. Also, although I cannot prove that it was originally on the model, I decided to add a Louvre to the rear window similar to the Delorean, it is has been added as an 'extra' so it does not always appear on the car when spawned, but does suit it nicely.

Due to GTA Garage being broken, I cannot upload these models there for now, so temporary links are now below.

Regina has been fixed for a while but I can't get into GTA Garage to update the files there. It seems to only affect the Replacement version, I never had any bugs like that when testing the MVL Version of it.

 

The Beta Deluxo looks way better than the final version. Nice work ALMOST.

Thanks, the Deluxo did turn out real nice, that louvre on the back window really suits the model, now that I have seen it on the model it looks bare without it.

Forget all the rest, Vice Beta Collection is the Best!

2017 Update

Celebrating 15 Years of Vice City

2 more Beta Vehicles are now available, The Love Fist Limo has been changed based on some of the minor changes made to the Beta Limo, but the biggest change was making the grill based on the texture leftover in the TXD File that shows a textured grill with Teeth instead of the 3d modelled bar design, a few bugs on the model have also been fixed, some may have gone unnoticed, but one that always annoyed me was the front right quarter panel had a UVW Mapping bug on the wheel arch chrome moulding and the rear bumpers black strips faded to red on the left side, both of which have been fixed. (as a bonus for the MVL Version, the air intake now moves like the Pheonix's)

The Squalo has been modified based on the several videos that show some changes and also the many pictures which also show some other ones , to sum it up, basically a windscreen was added (Note that the collision even still had the windscreen model in it too) and the number decal was added back onto the rear wing, other changes made that might have gone unnoticed previously were that the seats match the carcols of the boat, the front hatches have been changed back to the texture from the very early shots of the boat, and the rear engine covers have been changed from one single large one to two smaller ones.

Due to GTA Garage being broken, I cannot upload these models there for now, so temporary links are now below.
