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.

08 June 2015 (12:28) 3049

This is an Atrium (in GTA V place named Arcadius Business Center); building based on Westin Bonaventure Hotel from real Los Angeles city.

Should I once again say that this place uses really high definition textures? Each detail, like materials of the building, doors, pavement and even ground in flowerbeds have textures with 2048×2048 (and in some cases – 1024×1024) pixels resolution. Reflections on the buildings now darker then in original game, like in real life.

Initially whole the territory with Atrium was used only 2048 pixels textures, but later I optimized them to avoid incorrect game work. Also I must add that I tried to made move (not real-time according to game technologies) reflections on the glass of building, but (again according to technologies) it was looked not very good in this situation, so I left imitation of reflection with using of ordinary texture, but and this texture now is better then earlier.

Place also has models that were improved in 3ds Max with fixed texture mapping problems.

Anyway, with this Atrium was made long and good work and I hope that you will like images.

I know, that I not for nothing decided to remade Los Santos in new quality.

In old work version of HRT 1.4 (2011)

This how this building was made in old (2011) work version of HRT 1.4, when I started work on the mod. Now I can better. I definitely not for nothing decided to made all these anew.
