Finding some good comparisons on the internet:

 

FCYy9uRWEAQu52S?format=jpg&name=4096x409

 

Changes:

  • New trees
  • Better shadows
  • New lighting effects
  • Cables are now more smooth
  • New windows on vehicles
  • Reflections on vehicles
  • Higher quality models for vehicles
  • Reflections on the ground
  • New skybox
  • Interior now visible in CJ's house
  • Street lights are now smoother instead of being 3 polygons
  • More variation in pedestrian clothing (not visible in the lower pic but it's there)

It seems like it will be the same as the original. at least with vice city the entrance for the hotel is still blacked out. Vice city and San Andreas had different ways of loading interiors. while vice city had interiors stuck inside of certain buildings hiding them from view, San Andreas had split locations that handled different interiors. (which is why you could fly to different interiors with the jetpack)  Out of all the techniques I feel like a portaling system between the doorway and whichever interior tied to the portal would work really nice in San Andreas.

Smoke coming from the stacks behind ryders house looks nice. The overall haze that we will get looks definite top notch, i cant wait to see fog in the country side 👍

I've always wondered why there were no smoke coming out of those chimneys. I used to download this mod where it enables fire and smoke effects on top of these chimneys. Also, have you seen the new tree between the two palm trees beside Ryder's house?

 

First thing I'm gonna do when it rains is to Back-o-beyond.

That's also the first thing I'm gonna do, then I'll make him buff by the time he's living in San Fierro.

TBH Rockstar was trying to capture the original vibe in a modern way, which they did wonderfully. the original games didn't have all these things with modern GTA titles, to add all this instanced grass, completely remodeled terrain, etc, that some select people want would be unrealistic for the vibe and art style of the original game, the original game were always cartoony, never hyper realistic. 

It pisses me off when people say R* is sh*t cause they didn't make it the way they wanted it. reminds me of a line in Chatterbox FM in GTA "Kids these day are all about me, me, me"

People who are stating modders could make the game look better, well sure on PC maybe, but what about the causal gamers on Switch, PlayStation, and Xbox, pretty sure they can't run ENB on those, sure they can run re3, reVC, but again we are talking about causal gamers, unless they are in the modding scene they likely wouldn't even know how to do this (I'm pretty sure you need a hacked switch to even install this)

As I said in another topic, the textures on character models in the classic trilogy were never that realistic. They were mostly made up and based on a particular color palette/aesthetic from that era. Only the game world has textures captured from real life.

 

This is why I hate it when people bring up "My PC can do MODZ". Sure, you do you.... But, not all PC gamers happen to be building top notch PCs, hell not all PC gamers want to do mods. Many people haven't even heard of those. The reason why I modded GTA SA wasn't to make the gameplay better, but simply to try and make my own game without building from scratch. IDK about other modders, though.

RDR2 suffered terribly with this. Well, for me at least. 

Sometimes it appeared, sometimes it didn't, so I never worked out how to fix it...

How did they get the palm trees wrong ? No real LA palms ? Jeez.....

I really cannot wait to play the remaster. They did so much that we haven't seen yet. This feels like a remaster/remake because it's just a mixture of things that a simple remaster would just not include from the games I've seen in the industry.

It's gonna be a great time on the 11th

 

Even terrain smoothing to a degree. Also the bridge arch in the back seem to be thicker in size

The only downgrade I saw is that Ryder's car doesn't have a proper number plate but that's probably a small bug.

Truly staggering upgrade! Rockstar and GSG did such a wonderful job.  

is it entirely confirmed GSG made this remaster? It still doesnt make sense to me when all they have ever worked on were mobile ports and they accuired ruffian who specialise in remasters...

GSG, I believe according to TezFun2. Apparently it was a effort between Rockstar and them.

then maybe rockstar dundee is working on something different, maybe that red dead remaster that was rumored a while back "if the trilogy sells well"?

Maybe, the photos are floating around the internet, why make a new screenshot:)

 

Anyway, i don't know if the Vinewood sign is supposed to diffuse the light in this manner, but i find it quite concerning

This is something that we'll probably see across the games. At the end of the official trailer where the two cars in GTA 3 jump onto the tracks, you see the exact same thing on the side of the vehicle.

I'm not too concerned and if this is a major issue, I'm sure they will release fixes for this because I'm pretty confident that we're gonna see and find bugs during the first few weeks of the Trilogy release

I'm fairly confident the trailer is from a much older game build. We'll see if these issues are ironed out in the new screenshots coming up. There is also no grass anywhere to be seen except in one shot which begs to differ that the other shots are most likely from dated builds. Rockstar also made an effort to fix Tommy's shirt on his sleeve which can be seen on the official Rockstar Games website. Anyway, Rockstar QA are really good at spotting issues like these so I'm sure it will be fixed at launch. Most Rockstar titles always ship out in a polished state and considering the remasters are apparently a collaborative effort according to TezFun2, so I doubt Rockstar will let these games release in a pretty bad way.

Was CJ able to turn his eyes outside cutscenes in the original release?

Because here he does:

Somewhat, CJ is supposed to have an angry face while holding RPGs, so it's accurate in the sense that he is looking differently. Although, he isn't angry here which is odd.

yes, it was, that's why this a strange situation. Tez said that GSG worked for the most part and Rockstar Studios did other things. But that still doesn't explain all the Dundee talk from before the trailer.

It's trash on ground ? If it's really garbage, then it's possible that garbage will fly like in gta 3 and vs
