[REL|SA] Tattoos Reworked v0.8


damiann69

Recommended Posts

I just can't believe I've came back to this project after 4 years, yet many new great mods gave me inspiration so I've decided polish my previous work.

 

Main features:

- All tattoos retextured and mipmapped (finally)

- Pictures on walls retextured, mipmapped with better positioning

- All tattoos are more transparent so they look natural

- Few entirely new textures so whole pack fits game atmosphere even more

- More compact size, previous version contains whole player.img this version has only necessary files 

- One hidden tattoo bring back to the game

- Tatts are reorganized based by their main theme:

  • LS: Guns, religion, gangs - tattoos are less saturated and more blurry, they are cheaper also. I wanted to fit getto's atmosphere
  • SF: Rasta, Aztec, nature - tattoos here are more expensive and they're more sharp and saturated 
  • LV: Casinos, love, craziness - the same as SF

 

Some screenshots:

Download:

Installation:

Just use Modloader.

 

Thanks to authors of Modloader and Magic.TXD without that tools I would never touch modding again 😆.

Now this is some good stuff!

 

A minor thing... could you fix the 8sa3.txd tattoo? The ''San Fiero" text is a beta leftover, it should instead spell ''San Fierro" wich is the final name of the city.

Mipmaps doesn't work on CJ, it only increases the file size.

Also, you can't use mipmaps on menu sprites, when it works, it gets very blurred.

Some interior textures lacked compression.
It is required  that your mod is in a "player.img" folder for correct working, as "coach.txd" needs to be loaded inside a "player.img" folder in ModLoader to be considered as a .txd of a clothing and not Coach bus.
And there were some files that you apparently forgot inside download.
Also, I think it is better for torso textures to be separated to avoid conflicts with HD player mods.

 

I fixed when posting it on my website, you can get all fixes files there:

-offtopic (sorry, but I think i'ts a relevant tought)
I can't understand why people from here treat MixMods bad like that (I already seen in other posts).
Angry just because he is earning money with google adsense? at least those are real ads (not pop up virus stuff), and there is no link shortener.
All websites needs to make money to survive, even gtaforums.
MixMods is the best site to download mods, even better then the origial modder post, because Junior allways take a time to fix problems in the mods. Wich other site fix problems in mods befores publish it?. There is even some mods saved by mixmods, because the original link is gone.
Junior himself is one of the modders that has made more mods for this game.
All MixMods posts are well wrinten and explained, everyone get support in the comments section.
Junior has created a amazing comunity of modders, a lot of modders born in his forum with his tutorials. ModLoader for exemple only exists because of him.
About permission of the author, most of the modders take a long time to reply, and MixMods has daily posts, Junior can't wait to have permission. But he respect the authors, He never publish mods that modders don't allow reposts, if the author has a donation page, Junior share the link in the post. If the modder asks to mod removal, Junior delets at same moment.
I recomend that you guys read this one topic (Adlinks by MrFinger) maybe it can change your guys mind and cease xenophobia against brazilian modders.

This isn't really a thing, it's just a long standing case of Junior and his websites stealing things from other modders without permission, you say he doesn't have time to wait for permission, well, maybe don't take the assets in question? There's plenty of my stuff on that website and not once have I ever been asked if I wanted it to be linked there or if it could be used in other peoples packs. All I ask for is a credit and for the original readme to be included somewhere, but that one often gets missed. You've linked to a topic where many people in this community explained WHY they are against it, yes it's a big website, yes it gets a lot of traffic but it's still making money from mods that honestly most modders never put there.

 

Take this mod for example, he's not asked but instead he's took it, edited it, made changes he saw fit but were not the OP's intention, and then put it on his site. Which is why I questioned if this one was allowed as he's been pulled on things like this in the past (again as mentioned in the thread you linked).

I think that he can explain it better, but I can say some things.

I don't know about other websites, but in Brazil google adsense pay almost nothing.
All the money that he makes he uses to pay the host, and probably he puts his own salary money on the site (MixMixmods it's not his job, obviously, a mod site can't be reantable as a job).
In the end, he is not earning a thing, and putting his own money to run his site.

Great for the author, his mod will be seen for many more people.
Junior is even linking the source url in the post (at recent posts).

Just tell him that you don't want your mods there, so he will delete the posts.

 

Why those line of thinking don't are applied in other sites? I never see people here talking about Liberticity .net and Gtaall stealing mods.
Only mixmods receives the punch.

What the problem? he give credits, has linked this topic in the post, and the money made by the post are only used to pay for the host.
And the changes the he made in the mods are to fix the problems and erros, he explained above why those changes was made.

If mixmods worked the way you guys want, without monetization, asking permission for modders, not making a single change in the mod files, Mixmods would be way worse, having way less mods (cus a lot of modders would'nt even reply his request), mods with bugs and crashes.

Junior, I think that would be good if you explain why you don't see a point in ask for permission. (I kinda get it)

Actually, people DID talk about these sites, just check the workshops that post SA styled cars and you'll see. About gtaall, it's well known that most mods on it are stolen, but unlike mixmods, I don't think anyone can get them removed at all.

 

No one has a problem with the site having ads. But monetizing the download links of other mods while giving nothing to the original author and not asking for their consent or letting them know before posting the mod itself (unless the original author hasn't been active for a long time) is not cool, just like Ash mentioned. Seriously, it's not hard to ask first, especially when people from mixmods are here too.

 

And to avoid mentions about GTAInside doing the same thing, as far as I am concerned, you can't get money from it at all. And by uploading there, you give your consent that the owners of the site monetize the mod. Just saying.

For sure Junior saw this and decided to keep silence about it, he is acting like a coward instead of come here and debate ideas.
But I still think you guys are bein unfair with him.

MixMods use direct links, there's no link shortener on them.

Again, I don't know how those websites things work in your country, be here in Brazil (and basically in all South America) it's almost impossible be rich with websites.
He recive fractions of cents for each post, what the mod author would do with 3 cents? huh.
The money that he recivies are for all the thousends posts together, there is no mod that are making him rich, even the most popular posts probably din't even generated 50 cents til this day.
Also, he din't just reupload the mods and that's it, he write detalied descriptions, he gives support for his public, he fixes the mods problems, he runs a forum to teach and help modders. For sure MixMods is not a lazy work, he puts much effor on it. I doubt that he does that for money, I bet he's reciving like 8 bucks for month or less.But you guys are talking like his was making a thousand bucks per month.
Again, he pays for the site hosting, for sure a great part (or even all) money that the site generates is used tho pay the host. Remember that he also host a brazilian modding forum, like gtaforums, that's expensive.
Not everyone have sites just to make money, there is a lot of people that invest their own money to keep runing the sites, those people do it for love.

Totally agree with that part, the is no apparent reason at all to he don't ask permission at least to the active modders. For example, if he post a mod made by Ash tomorrow, Ash is still here, active, Junior should ask for Ash's permision.
But in case of unactive modders, like OP that are inactive for a year, and is inaccessible, there is now way to ask permission for unactive modders, so for that situations it's understandable.

Sharedmods, or how that site is called, is used to monetize the mods. It's actually a good site for mod creators to put their stuff there, but not too good when it involves other people's work, unless these people are aware already. For example, Junior uploaded many of The Hero and Silent's mods on sharedmods, which are already perfectly set up to work ingame, unlike Project 2DFX, which needed some setting changes IIRC. I'll talk more about Skin and Bones on mixmods for now, because it also had a mod that I did: XBOX/Mobile Claude Cutscene Head. Much like Ash, I was never asked if the mod could be included in his compilation, and the link is monetized. Not cool.

 

About the ammount of money he gets... I think this video might change your mind:

It's been a controversial point since 2017, because at the time he complained about his job not paying much, on the old Mod Index (I think you can find the discussion on Wayback Machine).

 

I agree that he puts effort in what he is doing. It is noticeable in the quality. I even use the site with adblock disabled because the mod quality is solid, in general. But I can't accept it when mods by other people are monetized without them knowing or getting anything back. It's completely fine when someone uses it for his/her own mods, like Zeneric does, or when people gave permission to have their content used and monetized, but not in the case I mentioned earlier.
