[WIP] GTA: Universe

Recommended Posts

That “Welcome” sign needs some better fonts. Arial and Impact are too overused, maybe you can find somehing different and more original on the Internet. Anyways, good luck with the mod! :)

We already made some more changes on that sign :)

You will see it on the final release

 

And thanks ^^

When the first region is completely finished, a trailer will come and then afterwards the release.

 

But before that we will just release some more screens.

So you have found someone? Not unless you're telling me to refer to another thing you wrote, in that case you can do the simple task of directing me to it without being passive aggressive about it.

One thing I'd reccomend is to try to wear down the pavement and add some trash. Real american cities aren't always perfect....I think 2008 LC was a hash exaggerated but totally did an amazing job at capturing a bustling city. As for that render of Las Venturas, it doesn't seem to have that same amount of Rockstar attention to detail (circa 2008-2013 because they haven't been doing much good lately in terms of map design). Even the near-perfect Los Santos in some areas appeared straight out of a late 80's early 90's LA ghettocore movie.

I would highly take a note from this screenshot. If you're planning to do any hood-like areas, ya gotta add some real vibes to it, like how it's shown here.

Why iam aggressive?

 

Just trying to avoid those useless questions.

The render image was an very early stage of the area.

 

No decals were put this time, but we already planned this and even working on it :)

Most of the textures were reworked too

 

You will see it on a another screen that coming soon

The whole IF YOU COULD DO THAT SIMPLE TASK bit seemed aggressive. Like sh*t son I'm just asking a question.

 

But yea, I agree with Razor. If you're still doing that whole "Build a little bit and superdetail it and move onto the next bit" you were saying you did a while ago, it wouldn't hurt getting it as gritty as that bit there.

Well, sry then that it seemed a bit aggressive, shouldnt sound that way.

Just sayed it that way bcs if you were a bit interested in this mod you would know.

 

But lets not start a big discuss about it, you have youre answer now :)

 

And ye, like Ive said, the render image was a pretty early stage of the map, before we are going to such small details, we trying to firstly modelling the map layout.

Like R* did, if you look at some early images from GTA V from 2012 those details came later too :)

 

Otherwise we would waste our time firstly doing all those small details

GTARandom here, name has been changed since tonight.

Just making a mark here, as to know that i will be helping this project in the future, if all goes as planned.

Currently, to my understanding team is busy developing the map so i am in stand-by mode until it gets done so that i can do the port to the game.

What are you talking about?

 

We had no arrangement or anything.

 

You've been away for over half a year without any word and now you come back and behave as if you were a part of this team, or that you will be in the future.

You didnt contacted me or anything.

I have nothing against you btw. you were always a cool guy and everything, so dont understand me wrong, but now our team is already occupied, we already have an experienced modder that is currently importing the map, and we dont need a second one.

But I find it just pretty stupid this action now from you to pop in here and giving the community wrong information, without contacting me to be sure whats going on here.

A big part of the map already is imported and the layout already is developed, so we are already pretty far in development of the first region.

since Universe Team dont need your help, you can start finish your other projects like Vice V, San andreas to V addon version or porting the LC map from gta 3 as addon, now that GTA V map modding is little more advanced than before, it should not be a problem

I'm seeing this a bit hilarious that a guy who thinks he is an insider is really an outsider, well that will happen if you don't keep in touch. Btw Krox have you faced any big problems lately considering the modelling or so far so good?

We are currently making good progress ^^

 

But we have decided making the first region bigger than actually planned, so you guys wont start with only one block.

I hope you don't see me as a hater since I'm really fan of your work, but I have to admit that you have been inactive lately what comes to exporting/updating your released maps in GTA V in my point of view, so new releases/updates would be welcome. Btw how you still have Liberty City map mod on GTA5-Mods.com? R* haven't manage contact you or what? Sry for the off topic...

I have it because it's nearly unusable, try playing it, you'll understand perfectly :p

 

 

Honestly, main reason is, it wasn't POPULAR, so it didn't even got to attention of the companies!

That way it wouldn't have been shut down by T2 though. I'm guessing you're not working in Liberty State anymore?

Cannot say a deffinitive 'yes' or 'no', it's on hold i'm working on getting back to it though. Priorities are priorities.

 

Now, as per OP request, get back on mod topic.

No, because we are trying representing Las Vegas more accurate.

Las Venturas will be even bigger then GTA V los santos, so that is just planned, the first region will be maybe the size as nearly three times the LSIA airport.

It includes only Mandalay Bay, Bali Hai Golf Course and Town Square nearly outside the City.

We are not accepting donations at this time.

Maybe when we have released something, we can think about that.

 

But they are no plans for this yet

Hey guys, its been a pretty progressing week this time for me and my teammembers.

 

Since tomorrow is my last day of holiday before my exams starts, I wanted to show some progress, because thats the last chance for me this month.

Until Mid-May I wont be able to do lots of progress, like Ive even mentioned once, it will not be the progressive year, at least until my exams are over.

So, here are some progress screens of the first region in LV.
No textures will be showed, as they are not fully finished yet.
Also not all models are finished yet and a lot of details will be added in the future.
We are still experimenting with some stuff.
So these screens are more showing the layout of the first region.

 

 

So, lets get to the screens.
The already known area, seen on a render, the famous LV Welcome sign Location:

 

QBfgPrW.png

 

 

Here you guys can see a new fast food restaurant that will be featured in our Universe called "Kirk in a shed" a parody of "Jack in the box"
In the background Kerkorian Bay can be seen, Delano is not being started yet as the area is not finished yet.

 

TbqfJM9.png

 

 

Here you guys can see the Interior of the Kirk in a shed fast food restaurant, it was started not a long time ago, so its not the final result yet, but I guess still something interesting to show.

 

jNBSxpq.png

 

 

Then, here is the Yellow Bell Golf Course, a comeback from GTA: SA, its a parody of the Bali Hai Golf Club in Las Vegas.

 

 

BH3s5lI.png

 

 

Also an abandoned railtrack will cross over the first region.

 

ZM07hXH.png

 

 

For those who wonder, our importer that should import the map into GTA V is currently pretty busy, thats why we couldnt make a proper screenshot ingame.
But we still wanted to show something ingame, we apologize for this bad camera angle.
And we are still experimenting with textures.

 

 

3Ux8zjn.png

 

So, thats all what we wanted to show to you guys for now.

We are still experimenting with textures, models and all to get the best result out of the first region.
We are trying avoid reusing GTA V models since we want to achieve a more detailed environment that fits todays standards more, as you can see at the railtracks that are now fully modelled and allows us to make us more variation on the railtracks. Or on the landscape that is now more smoother for more realistic looking later ingame.

And a lot of details needs to be added to the environment, which will take some more time.

 

So, its still some work to do before the release, but as soon as we nearly get there, a trailer will drop out!

I hope this doesn't mean that you aren't using GTA V's props, because you originally stated that you wil be using those. Otherwise you will need a lot extra time. Awesome pics btw, especially the last one.
