|It's very good that I finally can say definitely that I've finished this section! Like always, I can add that this doesn't mean that there will not be any changes and little improvements, but main work is finished. |
I present you a new large video that is dedicated to the LAn2 section of Los Santos! Enjoy watching.
2016 is ending and I want to draw some conclusions. This year was not so productive as previous one, but very variety on other events. I am sure that new 2017 will be also VERY PRODUCTIVE in sense of creating of the modification. There were finished two parts — sections — of Los Santos, that were made in the new quality. I've started to remake Los Santos anew because the old variants of textures, that I've created in 2011-2012 seemed to me not very good and I decided that I can do this better. I think that this decision was not for nothing. But there is a lot of work in the future and it's scope might be even scare a little, if I will not confident that I can do all this. There are still few sections of Los Santos and then we will move to the other cities. San Fierro, that was almost finished earlier (2014-2015), also will be redone for the second time, but, most likely, I'll keep some previous textures.
Mod is in the development for a few years and I perfectly understand that it is time to finish with all this. Mod mustn't stop development of my skills and must not be in the development so long. Also some kind of virtual quality bar, as we can call so, I mean quality that is expected by users, will be only higher with time. In such situtation each author and developer (I think) can feel some fears before future release. I think it is unreasonable. I also hope that the pace of development will be higher next year.
Thereby the work goes its course, all this is intertwined with my life, and despite I cannot dedicate a lot of time to the mod, as before, I never forget about it. Very often new ideas and thoughts come to me. Sometimes for the sake of modification I must refuse some other ideas in the mods and fight the urge to take up something new and interesting.
Well, with this video, dedicated to the LAn2 section, I put the point in the development of the mod in this year. Next year there will be tens of new videos, hundreds of new screenshots and a lot of reports about made progress. Thanks to all who is watching for this modification (and its site). Hope you will like the new video.
Most likely, this is the last news in this year, connected with the mod.
Christmas and New Year are very soon; winter holidays — are maybe the only holidays of the year that can give us felling of a happy tale. I wish you spend winter holidays very well and take a good rest from worries!
I wish us all good luck in the New Year!
P. S. Development progress map was updated a little, its design was also edited. New Year decorations are enable on the site! Holiday is started.
P. P. S. According to some problems with work of PayPal in my country (it does not work in full force in Ukraine), I again removed this donation option from the site; hope later I'll find something other.
Updated: was also posted new material Mod DB site.
