Sunset Strip/Hollywood Blvd Texture Mod


justindesig

Recommended Posts

Just a sneak peak for what I hope to be many more buildings and billboard conversions for every part of the game, with some exceptions.

Not a total conversion rather an enhancement with realism in mind.

You can check my already released billboard conversion on gta5-mods.com here & here.

 

Complete with 100% lod support, I went to great effort to reproduce as many real billboards and locations in LA I possibly could.

I went as far a cruising the streets of Los Angeles with google maps street view, attempting to incorporate as many real businesses or Iconic locations as possible.

Some building of course will require future re-modeling; ie Up n Atom Burger, Hollywood sign etc..

But for what buildings I could convert I did.

 

Hollywood Wax Museum on Hollywood Blvd.

Finishing off the tail end of Hollywood and Sunset Blvd.

Finally found the parasol for the Bean Machine and converted to Starbucks.

Glad to get that converted 100% but now have to convert all the bean machines as this parasol will appear wherever a bean machine is.

 

Converted the gta 5 train car dinner to the original Carney's located on Sunset Blvd as best I could.

I did convert the Tequilala to proper colors, logos and posters etc..

Short of someone modding the 3d Tequilala sign, it looks as close to the original as i can get.

Amazing work dude. Already using your Flowing Banner & Coke Bottle textures. I've been waiting a while for some quality stuff as I'm all into that realism shizz. Looking forward to more releases from you.

This... this is awesome! Here, haz cookie! :cookie::cookie:

 

 

Sorry for the late-ish reply. I've been following your releases for quite a while, & love your work. Any idea of a possible release date yet? The reason I ask, is that I'm doing some parrallel work, and I'd rather not waste time on buildings already converted, if you know what I mean. :p

Hey thank you all!

Im touching up a few things but shooting for a Halloween release.

Still trying to cipher an installation method.

Thats going to be tricky I think without breaking the TOS.

 

f4lse_proph3t I have only touched x64j.rpf and x64L.rpf, wich contain hollywood and sunset blvd.

I have done a few objects in downtown and Beverly hills.

Love to see what your working on though, let me know.

Maybe we can colab on something. :r*:

 

 

PS:

If you notice screenshots missing be patient..

Im just updating most with higher quality, less jaggy screens.

Out-freaking-standing, and your planned release date is right on my b-day. :D

 

 

I'd love to take you up on that offer, but atm I'm working 80+ hrs week, and that'll be the norm for the next few weeks at least. Afterwards though, I should have a good bit more free time on my hands.

 

We're ok, as I've only been researching in preparation (collecting pic's, logo's, & such) and I'm toying w/ some "Blaine" County things, remaking them into the proper Imperial County versions. Or, as close as possible seeing as we can't actually edit or replace 3-d models, aside from vehicles, yet.

 

On the 3-d models note: I don't have a lot of hope for that, since it's not been possible before now either. Pity that, I get tired of seeing LTD & Ron 3-d bits still stuck to my gas stations. But, you know... C* :/

So odd no one has cracked that yet.

I mean you can replace any ".ydr" but I think the ".ybn" format mite be a problem still.

Also the endless number of mid to far range lods's that must be generated make it a real nightmare I would imagine.

Maybe the price we pay for having such a scale-able game.

I dunno, like you I hope someone eventually cracks the problem.

Love to see that Hollywood sign.

 

What about the Walk of Fame? Perhaps we should paste in some names for Hollywood actors and actresses who deserve it.

Definitely doing the stars but saving it for last.

This is absolutely amazing. What about the Chateau Marmont? I guess you cant change the 3d sign?

 

I always thought that "Sunset Trocadero" was actually the Rainbow room.

 

Someone needs to convert all of LS into LA! Yea that would take ages obviously.

Thats one of the many objects that also uses an actual emissive model, much like the Vinewood sign.

I thought about maybe turning it off so only the 2d texture shows but then opted out as my concept is to enhance the game, not make it worse.

Until someone can alter that im left with no choice but to leave it in tact.

 

There are 2d emissive files that can be turned off via their alpha channel though..

I have employed that in some cases, ie; the Guinness world record building sign.

Emissives only show when it gets dark and im not actually disabling a model so i think this is acceptable.

Yeah, and not so much really. AFAIK, it's not been possible in any earlier version of GTA either, since they started "protecting" game assets. Also known as making life difficult for those of us who enjoy modding SP, & only SP. Modding building 3D models have always been untouchable, aside from their textures &/or collision's. It would be a good question to put to GoodNTS as to the viability with V, the most locked down & obsfucated GTA ever, really.

 

 

Don't take that the wrong way, I'd love to see it made possible. Being realistic though, that's likely not to ever happen. Hopefully the same doesn't apply to the emmissive portion of the Hollywood sign seeing as we can part way get into .ydd files now, most notably seeing as that is a major impediment to the realism with that monstrous glowing sign. ^ I use it too, and it's taken a hearty p*** in my cheerios since moment one (& checking for updates is where I ran into your comment btw).

 

 

Also, thanks for the interesting tidbit on disabling emmissive's, never used that trick before. :pp Oh, and if you need a tester for anything, just drop me a pm. I'm pretty good on screen photography as well. Recent shots for a handling mod I'm getting ready to publish: http://imgur.com/a/EvLVT

Would be really great to get as much neon signage in there (if it's still done with textures) as possible. Realistic or not, Los Santos a sh*t ton more neon lights. :)

How's everything going man? Didn't see a release from you today. S'ok, I'm working on converting Vangelico's right now. And, it's being a royal pain tracking down some of the files... Can you say massive file fragmentation?!? It's like the paper equivalent of taking a full file cabinet, and emptying into a tornado. Then asking someone else to pick it up, and replace all the doc's in the proper folder, in order... Lel :D
