GTA3: First Builds

How far has the deadline been pushed back?

 

I'd say it will First Builds will be released this spring. Currently remaking buildings in Chinatown.

 

Also very surprised by the fact that the little 11.6" netbook runs 3DS Max without fan even turning on! On the HP I used before, fans gone crazy each time I clicked on the 3ds max icon

This mod's aim is to emulate the atmosphere without a high degree of accuracy.

 

A good analogy: This mod is like an artistic movie to the real thing. Not a documentary.

Hey gallardo do u plan on recreating Claude? And a stupid question: Are u planning on getting an accurate alpha atmosphere as shown in the pics?

 

The mod focuses mostly on the atmosphere, but won't be a 100% rendition of alpha Liberty City ;) Just like Serg said, this is a movie, while GTA3D is an accurate documentary ;)

It's nearing 90% for sure. A couple of buildings need to be done, then I need to fix a few vehicles and edit Claude a bit. And then – Release! :p

You should get rid of the color overlay. Sharptrails does it when you disable trails...or you set the blur alpha to 0 in timecyc.dat.

Looking good. Will the same HUD from GTA3D be featured?

 

Nnnnnnope. First Builds will feature a custom one, since I don't want to use no CLEO / ASI / modified EXE files. The main reason behind this is to ensure 100% compatibility with Mac

Currently, they do. Although there's a possibility of mod having it's own free-roam SCM so you won't need to look for the year-long intro with unskippable bridge scene :p

 

Thanks for asking :)

Kinda slow currently as I'm at work. But I can say that the release may happen very soon :)

 

And regarding that, I can also confirm what I've been planning from the very first moment: First Builds will be released as one-and-only version. Meaning there will be no "0.1" or "beta release" stickers on it. Basically, what you will enjoy is the final version of the mod. Which is good since you won't have to worry about installing a 300MB updated version two weeks later due to some errors. This will change only in case if there were some critical bugs that would make the game unplayable. Ain't happening on my machines so I guess this won't happen to nobody :p

 

Some future plans:

  • Will probably try more on delivering the First Builds experience to the Steam for Windows version of game. If I'll somehow make the steam version compatible with First Builds, then this version will be released separately over time.
  • Not sure about the future of Arcade Builds. However I'd like to cooperate with someone on a mission pack Add-on for First Builds.
  • Maybe work on a new mod that will go in First Builds' footsteps? Only time knows.

you know out of context, it seems like you've got a really REALLY huge fanbase.

Great screens, and great plans for the future, the new logo reminds me of an spaguetti western movie, but looks cool, a little out of place but cool.

Gotta admit, I love western movies :p

Just a minor bump to confirm that I didn't abandon the mod! In fact I have exams now so I pay less attention to First Builds. Hoping to finish them ASAP.

 

so... Still Alive :p
