SAxVCxLC Connected

Recommended Posts

Alternative for SAxVCxLC mod, now with all cities connected.

YKQk5ED.png

Map:

ZvIIsQg.png

Goal:
The objective is to keep cities as close as possible, but long enough to cause a sense of travel, where with the default viewing distance of the game it is not possible to see a city while being in another, that is, close to 1000 meters away.

2gMkihZ.gif
The goal is not to model large land masses between these cities, as it is too much work to have a pleasant result, and that makes the game map too uncharacteristic, after all, in fact all games are located on islands, so even though there may be small ones land masses, the focus is on bridges.

New map center:

The original edit was created by @daniel_dude, it's fair to at least mention his name.

Good work nonetheless!

3 Updates:

 

The bridges are ready:

My friend is converting the payphone missions from Vice City:

oW9ac9F.jpg

I plan to replace the mountain add by the original  SAxVCxLC  devs on LC with a new city section formed by the ''ghost town''.

1HEkKxF.png

kXfK9NG.png

 

Now about the conversion of the entire GTA III and GTA VC missions to the mod:
We discussed about that and although it's possible, it is something that require extremely talented people. There's no way to do this just by using copy and paste. We can reutilize some part of the code, sure, but a lot of things will have to be done from scratch and the original code would have to be heavily edited.
A DYOM version is out of question since it is too limited.
So until now the only mission conversion will be the payphone missions from VC and possibly III since they are simpler.
I was going to rearrange GTA:SA original missions trough LC and VC. I'll move the first mission and see if its nice.
Another thing that might happens is a expansion to the Saint Mark's Bistro mission with carl being pursued through LC.

Yeah, but none of his concept is being used here. His last map was based on my in-game render.

Either Way, I placed an honor mention to him.

Hey there. I thought I might mention this:
New map center for Liberty City is incorrect. X coordinate is wrong:
LC: 6000.0 2250.0

It should be:
LC: 5666.0 2250.0

(Tested on pickup positions).

@Clara what is the current status of this? I read in Discord that v0.4 is already available, but couldn't find it anywhere?

Maps are too close to each other. This destroyed the atmosphere of this modification. 

 

Will more towns and villages be added?

The distance is 1000 meters from SA. LC and VC are about 1300 meters of distance from each other.
It's not possible to see other cities. While on SA you only will see SA, while on VC you will only see VC, while on LC you only will see LC.

So they are close, but you can't realize this in-game since the draw distance hide the cities.

2gMkihZ.gif
Also, this distance is necessary to put the bridges, no one would like to drive over a bridge with 6km of extension in the middle of the ocean.

 

Here's the bridges progress by Zeneric:

If you preffer distant cities, I recomend you: GTA United, SAxVCxLC (Original), GTA Undergroud, GTA SOL.
There's plenty options with cities far away. We are making a new concept here and it will not be changed.

I'll fix the bugs of SAxVCxLC and make more optional mods.
A MTA server is also in the possibilities.

The first stable build is now released. Now the focus is on fix bugs from the original SAxVCxLC that were inherited by this connected version. For example, we remade and optimize the water mesh. We fixed the LC tunnels that were underwater. Removed that ugly montain from LC. Created a new radar for LC. And so on.

Guys, that awesome. The project looks beautiful. My suggestion is to make news ports betweens the new islands and make a ocean traffic and parked ships just like that ones we have in San Fierro. Because the islands IRL will be used for trading, traffic, comercial relations, etc between the cities. Sorry for the broken english.

The new added weapons are using icons from III and VC, this don't make any sense at all, so Nadalao is creating new icons SA style.

That's it. Fixing bugs, adding new things...
Probably there will be a SAMP or MTA server too.

Zeneric is creating landmasses to support the bridges. The plan is to create some small towns like Angel Pine on them.

No offence but SAxVCxLC is not very well made. Even the radio is bad, they increased the radio size at same time that they decreased the overall audio quality.

Lots of bugs on the map and stuff. I'm thinking in discard the LC and VC maps and make a new conversion. Basically getting rid of 99% of the stuff from the original SAxVCxLC.

For LC, I'll still need to decide between the map from III Xbox or LCS.

For VC, I think I'll put the map from VCS:

XWCvuVz.jpg

If I go ahead with this idea I would have to change de mod name. Change it to ''Classic Connected'' or something like that.

 

About pedestrians, III and VC pedestrians quality are way too low to be used together with SA. So take pedestrians from LCS e VCS seems to be a better fit.
About vehicles, use vehicles from III (or LCS)  don't make any sense. It will be better use only vehicles from VC and VCS.

1 - Reinstall the game.
2 - Downgrade it.
3 - Install the essentials pack.
4 - Extract the mod to the game folder and hit ''replace'' when its asked.

Showcase video by Zeneric

 

LF has requested permission for us to use VC map from ''Vice City Stories: PC Edition'' and we got it.

frUMRN6.png

LCS map will be converted by me.
Since the maps will be changed, ''SAxVCxLC Connected'' will change it's name soon and we will recreate most the files from scratch.
This project has started as a small edit of ''SAxVCxLC'' but it's now turning into it's own thing, having it's own concept.

This is amazing. @Zeneric made it very well. I like the fact that bridge is not perfectly straight and kinda bumpy as well.

Zeneric and LF are using Manhunt 1 and 2 map parts to create a new city. The objective is not to have a full carcer city or cottonmouth, it's to mix both of them and create a new island. This island will be also mixed with the ghost town from GTA III.

Progress of the island: (part of it is already modeled)

unknown.png

 

I know that would be cool to see a carcer city and cottonmouth  fully modeled. But the levels of Manhunt are way too small to become it's own city, so the viable way to do is mix them all.

Maybe you can take some parts of Bullworth as well? The city itself is small, but some parts might or night now work lol

OR ADD AN REMAKE OF NORTH YANKTON

 

Are you constipated? 

I’ve been following this topic since it was created and I’m super excited to see progress on the conversion. I think that was probably the best call to make.

Also I noticed that zoning is quite broken. All of the zones in the info.zon file are not shifted to the new coords.

@Clara Great Work! Love the project, the Idea and how it's going

100% for the VCS map (if only with VC Sunshine Autos, we can dream??)

100% for the LCS map too, more appropriate to GTA SA original 1992 atmosphere

 

@Zeneric Your bridges and progress are INSANE! Absolutely one of the best modelers out here, same goes to LF

 

As I see, this project will be way more enjoyable than the original SAxVCxLC to me, as well the GTA Undeground

 

Good work guys!

Cheers

This is simply amazing. You guys are doing magnificent work here.

 

The only suggestion I have is since u use the VCS map as a base, to include some elements from the VC map.

 

The one I mainly had in mind is replacing the empty grassland in VCS Vice Point with the shopping mall from VC, Sunshine Autos as suggested before and maybe the construction site which you blow up in Demolition Man in VC.

 

Also the areas which you build your empire buildings on in VCS, what will happen to those? Will they just be empty or is their going to be buildings there like the ones from VC?

 

Anyway, again, very well done and loving everything that has been shown off here.

 

Do you have another invite for the discord server? The one posted before has expired.
