.:Features:.

 

Welcome to official thread, GTA: State of Liberty.

 

*

 

.:The Plan:.

 

GTA: SOL will be running on an enhanced version of the Vice City game engine with a lot of added functionality taken from San Andreas and Liberty City with some new ideas I soon plan to add to improve overall game play such as the player/actor being able to crawl, swim, and climb.

 

My main goal is to place all 3 GTA Game maps onto 1 single map and I have almost reached this goal with the help of those contributing towards this mod's progress, now helping me add San Andreas along side Mainland Liberty, Liberty City and Vice City.

 

The other important factor to any game is the creating of a storyline with the help of Beermuda and Tux Coder who has been helping me with the SCM coding side and the game play features that will make this game even more enjoyable. I also have plans for 7 new online modes but this will come after I finalize the map plan.

 

Other contributions towards the mod have been the Statue of Liberty and Chickenflucker's Floaty Islands. PortLand North, Washington State, Cancer City, Capital Island (based on Washington DC), and Waterfall Island will soon follow as this mod progresses.

 

If you like this mod and you wish to add something towards this project, I suggest you download the latest version of the mod from GTAGarage, have a good look around to get the layout of the land, as there is always going to be something on the map that's unfinished. You may have an idea that you would like to add, you have the freedom to contribute towards this project anyway you can as there is no need to ask as this is a community project.

 

 

File Release: 12/JAN/2006

 

Beta0.47.2v5 (296Megs)

 

Overall Progress: 89%

 

Mapping Progress: 85%

 

SCM/Mission Prog: 01%

 

Vehicles Process: 01%

 

Coding Progress: 02%

 

*

 

.:Online Play:.

 

We have plans for 7 online modes, such as Co-Op missions (With AI Peds), Tag Team, Death Match, Stunt and Capture the Flag, Online modes will allow the player can host a game or connect as a client to a hosted game of 128 or more players (Pending their CPU and connection speed).

 

*

 

.:Story line:.

 

A new story line will consist of 200 missions, between 1-20 selectable player models that will hold true to the GTA story format.

 

*

 

.:Website:.

 

We have a new site at: http://www.gtastateofliberty.com.

 

*

 

.:Fan Feedback:.

 

All input/feedback is welcome, I need all kinds of support, this can include hosting, aswell as those who would like to contribute their own way, maybe allowing us to use your mods within our project.

 

*

 

.:IRC Chat:.

 

You can chat to us about this project on irc.gtanet.com in #GTA-modding and #GTA-SOL.

 

*

 

.:ID Range Used.:

 

New ID list - ID.txt - Readme file. This file now contains ID listings for LC,VC and SA.

Mr. Someguy

I dont know how to mod but here are my ideas:

 

 

Can someone put Liberty City north of Vice City, connected via tunnel. & use NYPD style cruisers for LC (SWAT Vans too). & a LCPD heli. & the planes that takeoff & land fly back & forth to & from the cities. & LC fire/ambulances. & have the LC cops & fire fighters remade into the game. Relocate the loading screens between the cities.

 

(The tunnel should be located north of VC, 4-6 lanes wide & connect to the porter tunnels).

Andy, What a negative view?.

 

I can be a team player too, but i'm already 40% into this project..

 

I do have the time and tools to get this done, As for VC, i've made a script for when

I get to the SA stage of this project, but thats along way of yet!..

user posted image

 

(I've set goals and stages)

 

I also need to set up a website.. (So I can take ideas and maybe add new stuff into the

game), bring on some other people for ped paths (Single), And Multiplayer missions!.

 

Even have Multiplayer with AI Peds and missions.

 

''Qu from: I want to listen to others and do whats important, So I can add the functions

that other people would want!", Any good developer will tell you this...

 

I've seen alot of good projects out there...... Reading these forums last night..

 

There is one project waiting for the SA tools to be released, Well this is why i'm staying

with the VC engine for now..

 

(Players will just have to drawn, LOL), Narh i'm kidding, there is a way around that. smile.gif

 

Most projects are almost the same as what I set out to do, but does that really matter?

 

I've seen alot of projects start, (Remember GTAWO?) but are sadly unfinished..

 

Well least someone will make it happen, Weither its me or someone else..

 

Peace...

Hmm, too bad you aren't gonna put it into the GTA SA yet, but could you at least tell me how you made it move every model and texture in the right data\maps folder? Because this would be a great start. And ped paths I think (know nothing about it)are just coords and the .scm makes peds walk from one coord to another. Dunno really.

"Hmm, too bad you aren't gonna put it into the GTA SA yet"

 

I will be when I have both VC and LC working together perfectly. (Step 1)

 

I've noticed that Moo-Kow's, (KCow's) Moo-mapper is now open source on Sourceforge..

 

http://sourceforge.net/projects/moomapper

 

So the code is there to be updated for SA.. HEHEHA (But one thing at a time through!)

 

VC and LC Will be just one map. with new bridges, Hiways, Tunnels, and updated

city areas (Year 2005) not 1985..... lots of new buildings to be created.

 

I'll be moving things into SA (Hoping there will be mapping tools for SA) soon..

 

As for the scripts, You extract all the images from the gta3.img file into a single folder.

i've done this both with gta3 and VC.

 

All i've really done is make a simple script to read the 15 GTA3 maps or 32 GTA-VC map

folders and look for the IPL files within them. (Same will work for SA)

 

example shell output:

 

AmiOS4.5:> /RX imgcopy.rexx

 

Counted 32 folders, Starting with \airport\

 

Open Target: E:\GameDev\maps\VC.maps\airport

 

Dest Folder: E:\GameDev\SortedVC\airport - has been created in the Destination folder.

 

Looking for the IPL file: airport.ipl found.

 

Searching for the 2nd word in the file.

 

copy file: ap_tower - dff/txd/col To Dest: E:\GameDev\SortedVC\airport\ap_tower

 

copy file: ap_terminAchek1_01 - dff/txd/col To Dest: E:\GameDev\SortedVC\airport\ap_terminAchek1_01

 

copy file: ap_terminAchek1_02 - dff/txd/col To Dest: E:\GameDev\SortedVC\airport\ap_terminAchek1_02

 

and so on till it reaches the end of the file, and goes to the next map folder.

 

So when the IPL files are being scanned by the script, the image file is being copied to the right

folder.

 

Now it doesn't say in the IPL file if the names belong to an txd or dff.

 

865, ap_tower, 0, -1685.179443, -923.3638916, 13.48704815, 1, 1, 1, 0, 0, 0, 1

866, ap_terminAchek1_01, 0, -1398.51709, -868.3939819, 14.40732002, 1, 1, 1, 0, 0, 0.7071067691, 0.7071067691

867, ap_terminAchek1_02, 0, -1472.896484, -868.3939819, 14.40732002, 1, 1, 1, 0, 0, 0.7071067691, 0.7071067691

 

so i made it copy them as ap_tower.txd, ap_tower.dff and now ap_tower.col

 

(becuase i've noticed there are some col files)

 

so the files would be copied one way or another.

 

Now I choose to use Arexx, becuase I dont know a way to do it with windows bat files.

 

So there you have it..

 

Now who is smart enough to make the windows version of the script. biggrin.gif

 

Peace

Well, I'm okay with putting it into the Vice City engine first, but I do have a storyline ready which is optimal for GTA SA but we could use it for Vice City too maybe.

 

Well Mc-Kay, what kind of modders? Modellers, texturers, coders, website builders. You tell me, I have some coding experience with Vice City?

 

EDIT: Lol, I take it you are OK with me helping you anyway I can, aren't you?

Sorry for nagging so much, but could you tell me where to get Arexx (don't know if I need it) and could you send me your script for Vice City so I could experiment a bit allready? Thanks in advance!

 

EDIT: I've got an idea now: Maybe we could add (when the Vice City version is done, I'll try to help?) Liberty City and Vice City to the GTA San Andreas engine but delete San Andreas. I think we wont have any limit problems, since SA is much bigger then the both of Vice and Liberty. That way we could add a nice criminal background and maybe add an island with a casino (to use the casino features of SA) or edit some existing buildings and add interiors so you can rob too. But this will require a team, badly.

I should really write my scripts in a more Windows friendly way..

 

Arexx is standard for the Commodore Amiga, I'm looking for someone

who can maybe do a pc windows version.

 

I've got many other usful scripts which I used for GTA modding.

 

Tools i've made in Arexx.

 

ChangeCords.rexx:

 

This allows me to change the position of a whole map section:

 

Which means I can move a whole map section by adding +/- 1000 on the X,Y or

Z axis. (Script reads the lines in the IPL file and recalculates them)

 

This saves me alot of time, other then editing the file, line by line

converting the cords by hand.

 

Copyimgfile.rexx:

 

This copies img-files that have been extracted in a single folder (Using Imgtool),

by reading the IPL files the script will copy or move the img files belonging to the

map IPL, into there own folder.

 

RenameImgfile.rexx:

 

this does the same thing as Copyimgfile.rexx but renames all the files copied, and

changes the IPL and IDE files to match.

 

And many other scripts for texture convertion, but i'm totally stumped on importing

VC car txds and into SA...

Quick Update:),

 

I've have re-edited the start of this forum block, as there are now 2 outputs scripts, both for VC and LC, that can easly be made into a Windows BAT file.

 

I've also posted the code thats generated the 2 scripts..

 

You said something about removing the boundry?

 

.. Well yeah that would help and speed things up.

 

moving on.....

2795, wshbuildws02, wshsthbuild1, 1, 110, 128

^

One other thing?, Every img (dff/txd) has an ID, I need to know how many IDs are free

or if there is anyway to increase the limit, GTA-VC limit by default is about 6500..

 

Here is the first map plan. (Subject to change)

 

Picture 1 (Gta Radar map, for VC and LC)

Hey, Mc-Kay, got your message, luckily I checked! There's a tool called GTAVC Limit Adjuster, but don't know where to dl it. Everything looks great so far. But I'm not talking about the pic, can't see it lol! Maybe you should upload it again, love to see what you thought up. Question: Are you planning on making some custom stuff for Liberty to modern it up? (modern something up, that's new biggrin.gif ) What year is it anyway, didn't pay attention, school stuff you know. I think making some new houses/buildings and maybe a tiny island or two would be totally cool, I could help with that. Will be online Friday again.

Great plan, Mc-Kay! Maybe some custom islands? An Odie memorial statue? I love this already! But texture updates will have to be made and stuff. Oh, the links to the scripts don't work smile.gif But when Liberty really gets in Vice City, I could do the coding. It would be the story before the story of my custom city which I started.

Ummmm,

 

Yeah we are going to include SA in time smile.gif

 

But for now i'm working on LC and VC, by the time we have finished this stage, alot of problems with SA

would have been solved and maybe a good mapping tool would have been released.

Is this Liberty City and Vice City project gonna be on a San Andreas engine because that is pretty much the only way that you can have a Liberty City and a Vice City. Well anyway that would be cool to have a Vice City and Liberty City with the San Andreas swimming, SA skydiving, SA cars, SA boats, SA bikes, SA helicopters, SA planes, SA font (old engilsh text for city names and green text for car names), SA pedestrians, SA gangs, and any other new SA stuff. Makes Liberty City and Vice City all new and alot cooler. Well if you need ideas on what peds to use or car locations or stuff I am your man for the job.

I'd love to be able to walk around with claude in LC with a certain gang, taking over the other gangs land.

Or with tommy and his gang, taking over vice.

And i think new rampages would be sweet, in SA.
