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

How TBOGT looks like:

6317-gta-iv-tbogt.jpg

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 (which would increase Armando's and Henrique's roles).
  2. Making the Northwood Dominican Drug Dealers friendly towards Luis, with the ability to call them for backup (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. Connections with Elizabeta, due to the drug business (either a friend or a rival).
  5. Making the missions balanced and more grounded.
  6. Way more character development.
  7. Either bigger rivalry with Bulgarin, getting to kill Rocco, or setting Giovanni Ancelotti as the main antagonist.
  8. A choice for Tony's fate in 'Party's Over'.

TB0GT is PERFECT. If we see more deeply, and refer th the MAIN 3D Trilogy,

 

GTA 4 is similar to San Andreas. More interiors, more features, clothing, more diverse places, peds and areas, and more Missions.

 

tLaD is similar to GTA 3. Dull, depressive, no featues, less missions, everything less.

 

TBOGT is like Vice City. Goof missions, outfits, mediocre features, good atmosphere etc.

 

According to the people (I am talking about the whole world),

San Andreas > Vice City  > GTA III

=> GTA IV > TBOGT > tLaD

 

Thus, TBOGT is the best in the trilogy after GTA IV (Proved).

Since TBOGT is the 2nd best, everything in TBOGT is good, that's why people love it.

Were you hanging out in those crappy forums called IGN and Gamespot? Its bullsh*t how GTA 3 is better than GTA 4 in general when in reality, every true GTA player knows GTA 4 is the better game. Next thing you're gonna say is that GTA 5 is the 2nd best GTA game ever behind SA.

To be honest TBOGT has always felt a bit like an afterthought. I still stand by that it has grown on me over the years and I do enjoy the night life atmosphere it brings, but it doesn't tie in with GTA IV as well as TLAD does.

 

I would've preferred an episode in its place revolving around the McRearies with Packie as the protagonist. Packie would be more interesting as a protagonist than Luis IMO. TBOGT is still a really good game it just isn't as great as GTA IV and TLAD.

I still want to see the McRearies again and even play as one of  my favorite gta characters of all time: Packie

I liked it TBOGT really rediscovered LC again it went from being a dark depressing place to showing us all of the lights and the nightlife of LC. I remember passing by Maisonette in TBOGT and seeing how different the area looked like compared to IV and TLAD where you would pass by it all the time in TBOGT it's one of the hottest clubs in the city and the place to be.

TBOGT fits into the GTA IV trilogy even though it is odd it's all connected R* kinda made IV like Pulp fiction the thing with the diamonds, Three leaf clover, Bulgarin, Ray etc...

This guy gets it.
