YES!! I unresign.. Now I screwed up in saying to Andy I didn't need the patch anymore... Damn I need to reply again! *Knocks myself out*

 

I'm the Website Dev everyone.. I've got my website on my harddrive plain and simple!

 

I know where the airplane paths are. Goto Data\Paths of your gta vc dir, and yeah.. flight1/2/3.dat. Open with notepad and mess with them until it matches with your desire!

Defining and pin pointing the crash... on load time.

 

CObjectData: Cannot find object nbspraydoor

CObjectData: Cannot find object nbdcoshpwin

CObjectData: Cannot find object nbdcoshpwin2

CObjectData: Cannot find object nbdcoshpwin3

CObjectData: Cannot find object lh_showdoor02

 

this is from debugview.. a snoopsystem tool.

 

However I cant find where these objects are being called from.

 

last peace of the puzzle is GTA3's landsw map..

Trying to work out an IDE error on this map too.

Woah!

The Comsw map is the only one giving the errors now, IDE file!.

 

And I still need to find where these objects are being called from?.

Screen grab i've posted on Request.. this shows that everything is mapped..

I've stepped away for 1 or 2 days to rethink stuff and take a break.

 

This next rant will answer alot of questions i've had thrown at me.

 

I've tried to shar my findings and problems with other modders on here (With no joy), but only to be told 'We dont want another multi conversion mod with LC + VC and SA'..

 

 

All I can say to that is, I wanted to see if I can do this Mod for myself (Nothing more), as this is something i've always wanted to see...

 

 

For those who think this mod has been done already and i'm wasting my time, Where would I download It, ummm?

 

Last but last, I didn't set out to crash someone elses party here with this mod, (That being said) I know there are other projects like this one, (If someone else does pull this off, They have my respect and a very well done), I'm not trying to win a race, Nor do I care who releases there mod first, but I have offered to help other teams in there projects as well..

hmm, how long have you been modding ??

 

Why the big fonts?.. Reading from your other post (Andy's LC west post).

 

Best you start with the basic's.. There is alot of stuff on the GTA forums

that will help you through most common problems.

 

I can NOT help you in any way of a NO-CD patch, as these CD hacks are

illegal.. I will not support people who ask for them.. period.

 

I'll only help those with a real copy of GTA.

 

Please read the install doc, before you download.. Thankyou

Thinking of Sharks there is one in VC, (Not card sharks) I wonder what can be done with

the shark umm..

 

Anyhow I'm going to start looking into different cars and such...

 

I need a long list of stuff that should be considered

 

1, Horse and Cart... (Heh), I'd like to research a way to put a horse into the game.

there is an easy way out, Rocking horse with wheels.. (replace the Moped or something)

 

heheh

 

Ok soo..

 

1, Mafia Sentinal replaces Sentinal X

2, New Vice City and Liberty City Police Crusers.

3, Full winged Dodo.

4, Harrier Jet replaces walton.

Yeah, replace the skimmer with a Stuntplane from San Andreas with the same handling, I'd love to do tricks while flying from Vice to Liberty. tounge.gif And maybe the Infernus from SA, and further, erm... remove the Golf Island biggrin.gif and replace it with something or just leave it completely out. Then tune up the Caddy and make it a gangcar tounge.gif

[rant]Why do I have the urge to say your going to get a warning? SERIOUSLY! NOCD's ARE ILLEGAL! I use one, but I just briefly talk about it! But you. you just come here and say I NEED A BOUNDRIES PATCH for nocd... Look in the memory hacking topic for vice/gta3! Andy posted the addresses, why don't you try and hack them for your use. [/rant]

 

My idea.. Look at the default.ide file, and copy the skimmer line without the id to a car so you make it a seaplane. (e.g. I made the Idaho a seaplane, by just copying the skimmer line, change the skimmer references to the idaho's references, change the id to the idaho's id and done! Go and use the main.scm and spawn the idaho)

Well, making new interiors for Liberty City is something I'm not good at, the furniture I mean. I'm now gonna try to convert the interiors from San Andreas so those will fit into Liberty City. I'm also gonna add some stuff, and delete some stuff to make the map look different and more modern. I'll post updates when I have them.

 

@Mc-Kay: About your shark idea, I have the idea of making some sort of shark aquarium, so you can look at sharks swimming around in the sea from an underwater building, but I'm gonna do the interiors and modernising some stuff first. Also the giant mountain from Liberty City which stops at a certain point has to be closed. We might be able to use the unfinished tunnel? Just some ideas...

Your notice i've had the Seaworld idea in the works and now a theme park.. or maybe a zoo.

 

Anyhow, I'm a fan of most Mafia/Ganstar movies.. So what I plan to add to the map now will be in someway mission related, the 3rd new island will be the size of GTA3....

lib city bank? use in a mission?

Steve M's Map viewer.. loads the maps without any problem.. so this means there is a problem maybe with the IDE limit hack.

 

I've had requests to put Myriad islands there.. So i'm going to put that question to the Myriad team and see they say.

Okay, great! I've seen alot of San Andreas interiors, more then 50 perhaps, but some of them are usable, but for originality, I think I'm gonna change some textures, not all that would require more people, but things like banks and diners can be easily converted I think not sure. And I think we could indeed use the ghost town for the third island. I'm gonna need some savehouse interiors too though, just can't find them in interior world in Mapviewer. I'm also gonna use Liberty City and Vice City textures as soon as my surprisingly slow download speed gets the beta done and I can get going...

Another advantage I just noticed in Moomapper: The Liberty City buildings are separate pieces, this means deleting of buildings will not leave gaps behind in the main land! Yay! That's an advantage for the modernising stage... Now to go and convert the bloody interiors. We need more people on interiors and modernising stuff.

GTA3 is alittle like lego land, everything almost is made up of small sections, this

makes things alittle easlier now... because we can recycle stuff and make a building

look like something new.

 

We do need people now.. this is alot for us now to handle, but the project is

coming along nicely.

 

We need someone who can recheck everything we have done, and pick out

anything we have missed.

 

Help us on the coding side of things.. this means bug finding.. (tracking down the

unknown crash)

 

Texturing team needs to be put together, and alot of other skills needed to make

this work.

This is coming along very very nicely... I am quite impressed with the new addition to Shoreside Vale that you guys are making... right now I am dabbling with a couple of mapping programs trying to make some natural land for an island with 2 mountains on it that would measure perhaps 4000x3000 or so.

 

I think the 1210 error you guys are getting is being caused by the 2dfx objects... they are not all being displayed because you are running out of room for them. Is there another invisible barrier you guys ran into because there might be some other things I didn't include in the patch... I remember running into something trying to patch the CD version of the game which forced me to go back to using a No-CD version to make the mods work.

 

I can give you a version that has hacked path limits on it but there are some bugs having to do with police chases, and it also seemed to cause the game to crash randomly when I fly around Myriad but that might be caused by some of the lots there and not my .exe file.

Hey Nipa, could you download and test the mod? Check if the parts work? I don't know if the LandSW or what it was problem is solved, but if it is, the testing should go allright... I'm gonna try and do the interiors later, but I still need the right names of some objects and I'm gonna change billboards and advertisements textures to more recent names... But we do need more people.

 

So if anyone wants to sign up, PM Mc-Kay or me, and make the subject of the PM: Join GTA: SA-LVC.

Make a little message like this:

 

Nickname: Your nickname.

Function: What you'd like to do for the mod.

 

And please be serious about this, we do not want 10 team members who don't do anything for the mod...

Thanks! biggrin.gif

I've got the download on my harddrive, only problem is I have to use a nocd unforuntly.. So I can't really install it unless I find a way to crack the boundries myself (and believe me, I don't know how to Memory Hack!). Mc-Kay never lets me update the site! But back to news: I'm working on a tunnel for the map for the underground tunnel to the underwater complex. After that Mc-Kay has to run his mover script on my ipl. I'm gonna work on the scm and gxt. Geez, doesn't anyone think we need a better way to commuicate? When Mc-Kay's online, I'm sleeping!
