[IV/EFLC/V] Cityscape tutorial (Creating and converting to IV)

Recommended Posts


Be sure to join the GTA IV Modding Discord server if you have any questions or cant get futher with it: https://discord.gg/p6RU4xJ


A lot of you guys maybe heared of Pixelactive Cityscape which purpose was to create landscapes and a road system.

Modders made many maps with it like French Riviera, Red Dead Desert IV and Countryside Mountains V.

This was pretty a while ago and the tool wasnt longer available on the web due to the shutdown of the company, so it wasnt easy to find it on the web.

Thanks to @jpm1 we got access again to this rememable tool, he sended me the files he still had. I also found now the setup version in @stilldre's public OneDrive storage.

Btw, Join our discord server (link above the topic) we have a channel about discussing and making cityscape maps. We really want to see your creations and help with it!

The software expires in 30 days since its a demo (no one found the full retail version yet), you dont need to worry about this, easily just reinstall the program and it will reset.


Tutorial Video The tutorial includes creating the map in cityscape, importing and scaling in 3ds max and converting it with GIMS IV to GTA IV.



Needed for the tutorial:

3ds max

OpenIV http://openiv.com/

GIMS IV https://gtaforums.com/topic/474215-gims-iv/


I hope it really helped you making a map for GTA IV or V. This tutorial took me 1 day to make and I really put effort into it.

I will soon make a full topic for GTA IV modding tutorials, it will take a while to learn myself making vehicles, rigging peds, mapping interiors and creating special objects. So stay turned!

you don't need to reinstall after 30 days. you just need to remove a hidden file. unfortunately i don't remember which is it. maybe i saw it in one of Dre's tuts
