GTA Vice City - Updated SCM

Recommended Posts

Jinx.

IMG Factory is ancient nowadays

No it isn't. Modloader is undoubtly the best way to install mods in VC/SA (note that I didn't include GTA 3 on purpose, there are still some bugs with txd files being unused at certain times - for more references, check aap's xbox and ps2 cars to pc thread), but that doesn't make IMG Factory ancient. Especially when it is still needed for extracting files or for map replacing mods. If anything, IMG Tool 2.0 is ancient.

 

If you all really like bashing IMG tools so much, then call IMG editing obsolete, as a tool is not a way to install mods.

I did some minor changes like changing the taxi to sentinel in "The Job" (it was so stupid to respray and have the car the same color) but I don't know coding that well. Such a shame the mod is dead though best VC mod there is imo.

Hey guys! I was wondering what this particular mod does. Since the mod author deleted all the info before I ever knew this mod existed. I saw that Rachel Amber updated this mod to 2.0b, thanks for supporting the mod!

 

But yeah if anyone could tell me what this mod does and if there are still any game breaking bugs or crashes that would be very helpful.

 

Also I am interested in downloading a HD graphics mod for this game. I heard of Vice Cry v1.8 which looks pretty good but I am not sure if something newer has been made. Since that project was finished in 2014. Any help would be appreciated, thanks!

i dont use hd stuff anymore for older games, i prefer to keep the original style (specifically with gta having their own made brands, i prefer hd stuff with games like Stalker)

 

this mod basically makes more stuff in the game to have sense, download it and on the readme you can see all the changes

Ok, I get ya. So it fixes all the missions so that you know what you are doing. Because if I remember correctly the missions were very vague on what you were supposed to do, so hopefully this mod fixes that. I will check it out, thanks!

 

But I like using HD mods on older games, makes them feel new! So does anyone else know of any other good HD mods like Vice Cry v1.8 or is vice cry the best one out there?

There's nothing great, really. Using the ps2 feels pack is probably about the best you're going to get (low res textures, but not compressed), since vice cry has some crashing potential here and there.

After long bouts of inner conflicts, this crazy one is willing to update this now. Had a bit of a mental improvement (very hard to think and concentrate otherwise), some free time and some willingness. So I read the posts here and thus...

 

This is it.

 

As for the changes:

 

 

 

  • Removed the buggy option to leave vehicles in ambulance, firefighter and taxi sidemissions
  • Removed randomized races in Sunshine Autos
  • Included the spanish translation now, as well as the extra 'no MC Tommy outfit' SCM file in one package
  • Vercetti's Gang car changed to Banshee from Stallion
  • In 'The Driver', Sentinel is changed to Sentinel XS, and Hilary's car speed is reverted to default
  • In 'Jury Fury', damaging the Admiral will now make the jury enter the car instead of just doing nothing
  • The bike in 'G-Spotlight' is now damage-proof
  • Fixed Juju Scramble clothes text for alternative SCM (without MC Tommy)
  • Removed alarm from ambulance and vigilante vehicles
  • Cubans entering your vehicle at the start of 'Cannon Fodder' now takes longer than two seconds
  • The third Cuban should also die now if he somewhat gets stuck while charging at the sniper running to his doom
  • Rico should now fade away at end of 'Cannon Fodder' (and also unkillable by the player during that time, since he is vital to the upcoming storyline)
  • In 'V.I.P.', fixed looped arrow marker (that's the reason behind why it seemed standstill) and delivering him with the rival taxi will no longer fail the mission
  • Fix phone glitch while picking up the call with different weapons (now should revert to fists when you answer the phone)
  • You can now skip mobile phone calls (just press the action [TAB] button while the call is ongoing)

 

 

 

A few remarks:

 

 

 

"is this possible, to fix the EASY kill way in bombs away?"

Quirks like this have to remain. The more variety the player has, the better. And that is exactly the insidious method I prefer to use in that mission.

"fix an a white police cars spawning on parkings sometimes after reaching 100% of game"

Seems to be a glitch. Also they should not spawn that much all around Vice City either. Anyway, as a dirty workaround (if this glitch occurs), you can use the "fix-white-copcars" CLEO script for this based on Jack's code in the new version I linked above.

 

"Haitans spawn in an a cuban's area and Cubans spawn in haitans area like 2 gangs in same area while it should be that in Little Havana spawn Cubans and in Little Haiti spawn haitan"

FYI, the zone info has never been tampered with in SCM. Could be some mod conflict. Does this happen after a mission or right from the start of the game?

 

"In the mission Death row sometimes you can stuck in malibu club after cutscene if you run into marker fast"

Does this stop you from continuing the game? I also tend to run into it the marker and if Tommy only stops in the Malibu Club until the cutscene begins, that is not a big deal.

 

"sometimes some callphones like from Mercedes after killing diaz dont have an info message"

Perhaps because the textbox is still occupied by something else while the call is incoming. Now it ought to get cleared up before display.

 

 

 

(I know about how irrational and childish I can be. But willing to try some more again after cooling down period & rejuvenation.)

 

Now you might ask: "Why? How come? Won't you leave again?" After months of inactivity...and after claiming "no more"...just remember, people can say all sorta things when they are irrational (and not in their right mind). Well, some sort of a force can bring you back sometimes..I'll try to keep this thing updated until there's nothing left to do. May be pauses (but the dog definitely helps guiding me back to life).

BTW Niltwill can you restore missplaced pedestrian in Messing with the man? and fix it instead? or leave it glitched and dont remove it... there is a fix for this on GTA Forums and this guy is in proper position with proper skin and also fix that no appearing anwser the phone text and crash shown above ALSO new look... game crash whenever the phone ring randomly... not even when your exiting from car just random...?

 

EDIT: Also in a mission "Treachous a swine" you should be able to Pass the mission after Loosing the cops no matter where you are On foot or in Car.... you cant pass the mission when you'r in car also what about incereasing health for Vercetti paid goons after 100%? now they can be killed with 5 shots from an uzi

Yes it does.... it check if your in vehicle or on foot... im not stupid i know what im saying

HERE IS THE PROOF

 

 

 

Btw Niltwill do this can be fixed? they shouldnt leave a car really...

 

 

And this.... Tommy doesn't stand up when you croach on the marker and this looks weird.

 

 

 

EDIT: One more critical issue about "Bank Job"

When you get out of a taxi marker should disappear and appear back when you'r in taxi...

And Also Marker should dissapear when you FAIL the mission...

Look

 

 

Also Niltwill you fixed easy kill in mission where you have to kill the courier but you dont want to fix RC plane mission hmm

I get an unhandled exception error after the mission stunt boat challenge, When i am close to leaf links, when the next phone call appears it crashes?. I didn't have any issues until i came across this part. Maybe it's the phone call because i noticed it happened every time when that phone call pops up, but when i am in a car it kinda stays away until i step out of the car then it pops up.

Alright thnx atleast i got to see that cut cutscene and a couple of extra audio files when entering diaz his mansion the butler or something talks, pretty awesome. I might just play without it now until there is a fix. Or maybe just bypass it by playing without the updatedSCM for that mission and phone call since i have not got any phone call issues at the beginning.

Actually there is no way to bypass it since if you played it with the UpdatedSCM and then load your save again without it it crashes so you have to start over, So i might just start over without it since it isn't fully finished yet.

Anyway its been like.... 5 days so i think the new post would be better than editing the old one...

Niltwill could you remove those changes they kinda harm special vehicle collectors.. because UC Black Washington /: and black colours...

[*] In 'All Hands On Deck!' mission, the GiGN now arrive in the FBI Washington (instead of the regular Washington)

[*] Solid black palette used for UC vehicles changed to a lighter shade (still black).

Also can you look into this change... this is some old one but i think it doesnt work???:

[*] You can now buy food if you have 100+ HP

 

 

Also if you can please reverse this to original (we now have a fix for that instead removing this and i want to use the fix):

[*] Removed a misplaced pedestrian in the cutscene of the mission 'Messing With the Man' (only his head was visible).

 

Also do this is fixable?

When you kill the lady in UC Black Sentinel it still drives abit without a drive can you fix this?

look at the 2:10 of this video

Why not try doing them yourself for a change instead of just demanding? The guy has only just returned and you're bombarding him..

Just saying.
