GTA: Dubai Islands

Recommended Posts

GTA BELGIUM

 

Grand Theft Auto: Dubai Islands (UPDATE DECEMBER 2018)
https://gta-belgium.com/
poNbGsk.jpg

 

V2.0 releasing soon on gta5-mods.com

V1.0: https://gta5-mods.com/maps/dubai-islands-addonmap

 


Grand Theft Auto: Dubai Islands brings some of the most recognizable buildings from the Middle East and beyond to the game Grand Theft Auto V!
This mod contains multiple islands including a Palm Jumeirah replica, an airport and even the Yas Marina Formula 1 circuit from Abu Dhabi!

This is the second version of this mod.
It will release soon along with a VIP version for 1$ including the Dubai Creek Tower, Abraj Al Bait building from Meccah and Abdul Amir, the current President.
This VIP version will be available on Patreon, and will be linked on the website
https://gta-belgium.com/

This VIP version is because I can't count how many hours I have worked on this.
I also bought some models instead of building them all by myself, which would have been even more time consuming.


OFFICIAL TRAILER Dubai Islands V2.0  
  


 

Changes in V2.0: 

- Added more random props, and bridges between the islands.
- Dubai International Airport replica added.

- Minimap is now included, but will be only compatible with 4K Satellite View Map by Designerappz: https://www.gta5-mods.com/misc/satalite-view-map
- Some new buildings: London One Canada Square (not really Middle East but still good looking), a random large building.
- The 1$ VIP version will have an added Abraj Al Bait Meccah Royal Clock Tower (interior with Kaäba) and the planned Dubai Creek Tower (height 1300 meter). 
- Deleted unnecessary collision files for better performance and reducing crashes.
- Reducing some unnessecarily large 4K textures and replaced them by 2K textures without ingame visible quality loss.
- Re-importing Bahrain World Trade Center without z-fighting faces, with reduced polygons for better performance and less irritating 'flashing textures'.
- Editing and improving shaders and textures on some buildings for less problems with strange colored glass glitches.
- Editing normal directions on some buildings for a visible better quality, without strange lines and shadow glitches.
- Added lights in Luzhniki Moscow World Cup 2018 stadium, which will light up at night.
- Added a Freddie Mercury Statue inspired on the one in Montreux, Switzerland. Located near Dubai Emirates Towers and Rose Tower.
- Some buildings now have LOD versions, which will reduce possible lag and the game will have less chance to suffer from random crashes.


Possible future changes in a next version:

- Adding more traffic paths and correcting existing traffic if possible.
- Adding more details, more mansions, more props...
- Making LOD versions on more buildings to reduce crashes for some users.
- More buidlings or statues, towers...
- Whatever comes up on my mind or on yours: you can always leave a (realistic) suggestion! 


 

This mod now contains:
 

  • United Arab Emirates: Burj Khalifa, Aldar Headquarters, Jumeirah Emirates Towers, Rose Tower, Atlantis Hotel, Dubai Airport replica, Dubai Media Centre, Yas Marina F1 Circuit ABU DHABI (Converted from F1 2017). VIP VERSION: Dubai Creek Tower (planned for completion in 2020 in real life). 
    (Burj al-Arab can be downloaded here:
    https://www.gta5-mods.com/maps/burj-al-arab-hotel-dubai-emissive-add-on-replace) Thanks to [email protected]
  • Kingdom Saudi-Arabia: Kingdom Centre. VIP VERSION: Abraj Al Bait Meccah Royal Clock Tower
  • Kingdom of Bahrain: Bahrain World Trade Center
  • State of Kuwait: Kuwait Towers
  • Russia: Luzhniki World Cup 2018 Stadium (Converted from FIFA 18)
  • China: Shanghai Pearl Tower
  • Turkey: Istanbul Blue Mosque of Sultan Ahmet. 
  • Europe, UK: London One Canada Square
  • Europe, Switzerland: Montreux Freddie Mercury Statue
  • A random building, random houses, a mosque, 2 small bridges, 2 large bridges and 2 yachts.
     

I know Russia and China and of course the UK and Switzerland are not really Persian/Arabian, and neither is Turkey in fact. But I think it's all a great addition to this mod, with an extra touch! 

Burj Khalifa is converted from a GTA IV mod by 'Metalwarz'. Many many thanks to him for the GTA IV version! I only converted that one to GTA V.

Grand Theft Auto: Dubai Islands (UPDATE JUNE 2018)

ebNXOOr.jpg

 

V1.0 available on gta5-mods.com



V1.0: https://gta5-mods.com/maps/dubai-islands-addonmap

 

GTA: Dubai Islands is a mod for GTA 5 and tranforms a part of ocean near Vespucci Beach with islands inspired by the City of Dubai, including an island based on Palm Jumeirah Island, Dubai. Included with some of the most popular Persian/Arabian Gulf buildings, Dubai Islands offers you all the resorts you ever dreamed of!

 

Changes in V1.0: 
 

I deleted Baku Crystall Hall, Dubai Mall and Dubai Media Centre for now. I wasn't really happy about the placement and modeling, texturing of those buildings. I may add them back later, improved though.
I added Yas Marina Circuit Abu Dhabi, Shanghai Pearl Tower, Istanbul Blue Mosque, and Luzhniki Stadium (World Cup 2018 Russia). I added traffic paths and more props. Traffic paths on the main island may be a little buggy sometimes though, but this shouldn't be a huge problem I think. On the main Island, there still need more props to be placed, such as palm trees, smaller buildings, houses...

FIRST PUBLIC BETA RELEASED

Burj al-Arab won't be included in my mod download, you should download it from the link provided above, mod by [email protected] Thanks to him as well!

All feedback and suggestions are welcome :) (Please only be realistic with suggestions).

After a lot of thoughts and even considering making this mod private or 'VIP', I finally decided to release it for free though, later in 2017, on GTA5-Mods.com. I just considered making this mod 'VIP' for around $2, because I really put a lot of work in it, and it was very time consuming, I need to pay licenses... However, i thought people should get it for free at the end of the day. I want the GTA community to enjoy each others mods, how big or how small they are.

 

Launch Trailer:

 

 

 

 

Official first trailer came out NOT on my YouTube channel, but on another one. Here you can watch it. Please ignore the 'funny' intro with the PEGI 18 and stuff

 

 

 


I posted this already on GTA5-mods forums but i didn't receive any suggestions or feedback.
Here some screenshots:

--------------------------------------------------
EDIT: NEW SCREENSHOTS FROM SECOND ISLAND

 

I decided to enlarge this project with a second island with buildings from all over Dubai.
As you can see, most of it still needs to be textured, and props need to be added.

I'm also making Palm Island look better, with more villa models and stuff.

New gameplay video:

 

 

 

 

Still, a lot of work has to be done, optimizing the models, creating more villa's and props, and assigning textures to new models.

 

 

NOTE: I HAVE READ ALL FORUM RULES AND I THINK IT'S OK TO POST THOSE KIND OF MODS IN THIS SECTION.
BECAUSE I PREVIOUSLY HAD TOPICS WHICH GOT DELETED INSTANTLY... BUT THAT WAS BECAUSE I USED MODELS FROM THIRD PARTY GAMES IF I REMEMBER WELL, SUCH AS EA.

Looks promising, but pretty raw now.

Are you sure for making it for GTA 5? Since it requires the proper detailing.

I suggest it for GTA SA for now, at least.

This can have so much potential if someone manage to create the whole island from irl photos
And then with a script we can travel there via plane/aiport location like NewTheft did with North Yankton script

 

Also with some peds and small traffic like that taxi from your trailer

GTA San Andreas would be unable to handle the models, since they are too high poly for older games.

Yes I'm sure I want to do it for GTA 5. But you are right, i still need to put more details in it...

Yes I know, more details are necessary.

 

Could you guys please tell me what you exactly mean with more details? I assume you mean better textures and more models, right?

 

 

 

Thanks for the feedback!

Creating the whole island exactly like in the real world, would be impossible i think. Too much polys, even GTA 5 wouldn't be abe to handle it.

The real island is huge... It has so much details, that's impossible unless you make it a whole new game or something like that :pp

I've never been to Dubai but I'm pretty sure it's not a couple of islands with five buildings.

Ok, maybe the name of the mod is a little weird or wrong, but if you have a better name, tell me.

Also, you want me to make whole Dubai? That's just impossible. Please be a little realistic..

I like the models. They're not a whole cluster but they look nice. Too bad the whole city won't be modeled or a portion as it'll take time. But calling this Dubai city doesn't sound fit. Maybe Dubai Islands or so.

Call it "Dubai Islands" like Arrow said. Calling it "Dubai City" when it isn't even a city is just misleading.
