[REL|VC|SA] HQ Palm mod

Recommended Posts

Jestic
What's this? Jestic creating a mod for RenderWare? Yes, that's correct, i'm back. Well, it might not be for long, but at least you get to enjoy this mod.
As we all know, there are tons of so called 'High Quality tree mods', mostly with converted assets from other games.
Unfortunately, very few of those mods stick to the original look&feel of R*'s beautiful low poly PS2-era vegetation.
Mostly they are models with hundred times the amount of polygons and don't look much like the original trees at all.
Well, here I am, I created a new model and modified texture, using the original palm tree as reference as close as possible.
Thanks to a 1024x1024 version of 'planta256' from Far Cry, I was able to modify it and create a new texture that can be used on a different type of model:
R*'s original 2002 model:
339717391008931.jpg
48 polygons
My modified model:
f92410391008930.jpg
420 polygons
Sadly, this mod only replaces just 1 type of plam tree. The good news is, it's the most used palm tree model around San Andreas & Vice City
Currently I have no plans to further develop this mod, we'll see what the future holds.
Permission
You are allowed to use my modified model and texture in your own mod, map, conversion, overhaul or whatever it is you're making.
Simply mention my nickname in your mods credits, specifying I made this model and texture.
Notes
- I guess this goes without saying, but you can't use my modified model with the original texture, or vice versa. They need eachother.
- It's recommended to use the VC version with DK's mip map plugin
- It's recommended to use the SA version with SilentPatch with TwoPassRendering on '1'
- VC's rendering for alpha masked textures is not optimal. Unfortunately, this is not something I can fix, so it will have to do for now.

Do you think you'll do more, like the other SA trees and such?

Looks very vanilla which is great but palm leaves looks messily and dark. There's a need to work more on it. But I'm sure I will use it in full time when it will be without flaws :cookie:

You don't see new vegetation mods here too often (especially for Vice City)...well that and this but that's just the textures.

 

Great work! More variations of original vegetation is always welcome :)

I like the idea here and you did a great job. But I have one concern. Will you be lightening up the vegetation? By that I mean that your vegetation is darker than the original.

[REL|VC|SA|V] HQ Palm mod

 

That's right. HQ Palm mod is now available for GTAV. Not as a replacement for any of it's palm trees in Los Santos or Blaine County. BUT for use in III-era map conversion modifications that use the palm trees from Vice City or San Andreas. It will also be included in the soon to be released Vice City for FiveM mod.

 

Download link will be up tomorrow.

The updated graphic engine RAGE and GTA V timecyc with hot tropical feeling just fit in vice city atmosphere.

Jestic, I love you. That looks simply amazing. Great work! This might be the first mod I'll ever install for my GTA SA copy.

 

Is it possible to replace the trees in GTA SA's forest with GTA V trees, or the whole vegetation in general?

No! It can't be!

 

Did you add the .TXD? VC or SA? Have you had other issues with textures not working with other mods?

It definitely makes the trees look nicer while keeping them original.

 

I would like to see the same type of mod done with the flat trees in GTA III.
