How would Ballad of Gay Tony be if Rockstar made it more like..

How TBOGT looks like:

How it should have looked like:

MmR8H9U.jpg

 

I was playing Drug Wars again, playing as Packie with Niko as a bodyguard, flying a helicopter in the morning time. The f*cking sky was so pink and the water reflections were so f*cking pink as well I had to f*cking change it! I couldn't take looking at such awful colors anymore! Fifty shades of grey and yellow will always look good, pink on the other hand, never will! Turns out it was as simple as getting IV's timecyc and visualsettings and copying em over to TBOGT, while the HUD needed copying over hud.dat and hudcolor.dat, while the radar required changing HUD_COLOUR_STAR (health), STARLIGHT (armor) and STARDARK (critical health) to be equivalent of Green, Blue and Red inside hudcolor.dat respectively along with copying the radar textures from IV to get rid of the pink hue over the radar.

 

I might mess with the mission/activity blips as well and then upload the whole thing for all people to enjoy, because nobody else ever bothered to.

Did you also change the 'timecyc.dat' files?

Nope. Just copy IV's timecyc.dat from pc/data to TBOGT/pc/data and IV's visualsettings from common/data to TBOGT/common/data, that's it. Pretty simple. Going to do black&white conversions of blips.

You could also make the Drugs, Booty Call and all them side mission icons B/W, so it fits more in. :)

Well I've made all the blips from pink into red instead of gray. Red indicating how negative all the contacts are :p Though I might do a gray version too (actually the grey is too dark and not sure how to make it purely Black & White with IrfanView without messing up the borders).

Not sure what to call my mod collection/package, Ballad Of Straight Luis? Gay Vision Remover? Luis's Gay Struggle?

What about: The Ballad of Straight Tony (Enhanced HUD, TimeCyc and VIsualSet.)

Or something like that. I really like the "straight" names.

Sure I'll go with that, and add in a bit of optional extras I like to use too.

Let me guess:

  1. Larger role of the drug business, and smaller role of the nightclubs (which would increase Armando's and Henrique's roles).
  2. Covering Luis. Armando and Henrique with a gang, so they can consider their business a 'drug empire', with the ability to order backups (according to the game's script, backup system was going to be present in TBoGT, as in IV and TLaD).
  3. Making Yusuf Amir a serious businessman, as was mentioned in vanilla.
  4. Relationships with Elizabeta, due to the drug business (either a friend or a rival).
  5. Less over-the-top missions (if they planned to add them originally).
  6. Well written characters.
  7. Either bigger rivalry with Bulgarin, getting to kill Rocco, or setting any other antagonist (maybe the Ancelotti's don, or whoever else).
  8. Getting a close character of Luis to die by the end of the story, like in IV (Kate/Roman) and TLaD (James). He could've been Tony or Armando.
