Purpose of the mod — is to provide improved graphics with preservation of original game's atmosphere using remade textures that are maximum similar to the original ones by colours, contrast and other parameters, but made in really high definition; it also contains improved and fixed models and other features. The mod is the development.

Hello to all who are waiting for the new reports about the modification. Don't worry friends, mod is not canceled. However, the speed of the development of such mod is pretty low, like a turtle. No, turtle is even faster. It's been a hell of a lot of time since I started doing this mod and I am not a teenager anymore, and the hobbies are different (but dreams are the same). But mod must be finished, I think, yes? So let development going as going, but it definitely will come to the logical end.

Some time ago GTA: San Andreas was an outstanding and popular game, and even in 2011, when HRT 1.4 was announced (too much time for such mod, yes) — and the mod that could become a new version of my first SA global mod ever, but became a totally new thing — it was very popular and a lot of people played it. But time is running and yesterday's teenage players are older now, and the games are different. Even new GTA games. The series is get in step with newest trends (I mean GTA V) and old 2000s San Andreas will hardly be interesting for new players. And this mod will be never downloaded hundreds times like previous mods. But if it's still interesting for you — follow the mod. If the mod is not interesting anymore — it's also normal and I can understand you. And now will try to finish started.

Today's report will be pretty interesting I hope. I already wrote that I am backing from time to time to previous made things (a very bad habit). In parallel with started third section of Los Santos (LAs) were massively improved previous two (LAn and LAn2). Nearest reports will be connected with these improvements. Also we will touch again vehicles.

There is an official building on the LAn section — Los Santos City Hall. One of many symbols of Los Angeles. When I played L.A. Noire I was pretty amazed: the city in this game was made with such historical certainty, it's really great. So I decided to improve this building in some similar ways.

On the facade there is a sign like in real life.

Also inside there is a commemorative plaque with information that this building is a monument. The layout of windows were changed a little. And, of course, original game mapping issues were fixed.
