|I welcome again all those who follow the progress in creating this modification. |
This progress, unfortunately, is very long, but it will bring its results. In the last «full format» news (About the actual state of the mod; vehicles; LAs section is started), that was posted at the beginning of August, I told about the whole situation about mod's creating and terms of finishing work. For me this situation is unpleasant, but now the tempo of the development is quite low, and in that news I've described it in more detail.
Also there were listed the main achievements for the last time. Generally, after finishing LAn and LAn2 sections of Los Santos the third part of this city — LAs was started. At the same time, work on vehicles was started again.
You will see the images from the third section (LAs) and with vehicles in future posts.
And now, due to the fact that I very often return to the sections that are already done and rework many of them again and again, I would like to show you some screenshots of the improved LAn section.
As you know, this is the first part of the city and it was finished some time ago. But periodically I returned and made various changes to it. Compared with previous times, a quality of textures was raised, and as always I had found a lot of little defects and even glitches on the models and have fixed them.
What about textures. If earlier limits of the game imposed restrictions, now (thanks to the existence of excellent plugins by community), we can use much more heavy textures without any problems for the game. In connection with this, a lot of textures that earlier were made in 512x512 and 1024x1024 pixels resolution, now were increased to 2048x2048 pixels (I've returned non-optimized variants).
Also, as an experiment, in some places I started to use even 4K textures, and in future I'll try to use more such textures.
Well, I offer to back to the first part of Los Santos and see what's new there.
You can also look at these screenshots on the Mod DB (from this image).
Also I ask you to pay attention to my Autumn Sunshine mod. This is a massive modification for San Andreas dedicated to the autumn season. It has dozens of new features and really great, as for me, visual style.
