That's the best news of the day! I am looking forward to it! Thank you!
Aw, man! You had to release it on the day I'll be leaving the country
Can't wait to try it when I get back!
AI paths across the entire map
After the traffic update, cars don't seem to take turns when they don't have to. From my experience, 10 out of 10 times, cars go straight on a crossroad, they never take turns unless they have to. It wasn't like this with the unofficial mod. So I don't know what to do. If someone knows how to fix this, please let me know.
If the paths are wrong somewhere, please let me know.
In other news, I began work on extending the DragonFF map importer. Once finished, it will be able to import all III, VC, SA, LCS and the VCS map, and anyone will be able to import any map they want into BeamNG.
Imported dirt track from Liberty City Stories...
One of the few modifications I deem reasonable, considering there's just an unused grass plane in the GTA 3 version. The dirt track seems a lot more fun.
I wonder if it was meant to be in GTA 3 originally but just had to be cut because of time constraints or something.
you should do GTAV in the future
that would be epic
In the meantime, this map is fantastic. I play on it every day and love every minute of it! Keep up the amazing work!
I actually second the gtav suggestion lol
I'll waiting for LCS Little Italia
Ghost town and interiors are done, and I added sound reverb to tunnels.
Still a couple of small fixes, that nobody except me cares about, but then finally full release.
I'm also working on reducing the total number of materials used in the map.
Rockstar categorized materials by map sections, not used textures. So you can have many materials using the same textures.
I'm not all the way there yet, but it looks promising. If it works, it should dramatically reduce the draw calls (increasing performance) and hopefully reduce memory consupmtion.
Again, nobody probably cares at this point, but I'm having fun.
I hope the map doesn't get taken down before I finish it though.
Rockstar pretty much doesn’t care about the 3D era games. It’s more of the HD era games, especially GTA IV Liberty City that T2 would really send out their “goons” to ya.
Take the OpenIV fiasco from the summer of 2017 for example.
What about a car importer from the other games?
no idea... I've never worked on anything like that and never planned to.
I've gotten cars out of the 3D era games quite easily, there's already tools for that... The problem with this is making them usable as a BeamNG.drive flexbody... The models themselves are extremely low poly;
GTA Vice City Oceanic
And not to mention the horrible poly flow.
I tried editing the model and ended up modeling a whole new car from scratch;
(No this isn't going to be public, it didn't work out.)
You could in theory just JBeam them the way they are, but most people are expecting detailed and decent quality crashes, something these models aren't going to be capable of providing.
These might be better suited for conversion, but even then they won't be the best for BeamNG.
Now this is interesting...!
Prepare to see a job offer from BeamNG some time soon, heheh.
Something to port RoR maps to BeamNG is likely a feature to add in their To-Do list!
imported all cutscene interiors, including ghost town
imported dirt track from Liberty City Stories
added reverb audio effect to tunnels
opened up Cocks' stadium and Joey's garage
fixed countless texture, collision and model glitches
merged 2594 duplicate materials, reducing draw calls and improving performance
I encourage everyone to update to this version.
Thanks again to @Spython, @loba04, @Confused_Deer43 and @DAYTONAAAAA for their help and support.There were a few hurdles along the way, but in the end this is a dream coming true for me, and after 3 months of hard work I'm very happy with how the map looks and performs. There might be additional updates fixing smaller issues, but I did my best to polish what was worth polishing, and I'm moving on the finish the map importer, so that hopefully in the near future, we also get Vice City, and maybe even San Andreas.
--- Post updated ---
Btw @DankMemeBunny I hope I redeemed myself by now.
Hey mate, got an issue with the latest update.
95% of the world has no textures at all, I was using LC91 version and it worked perfect, deleted that file and replaced with the current Libertycity.zip and now have the issue,
PS: screenshot attached
Hmm. Those orange materials are duplicates, which I merged in the latest update. You can see how many redundant materials there were.
Maybe try deleting your cache? I'll do the same once I get home to see if the problem is on my side. If it's the cache it kinda sucks.
I believe I'm using the same zip and everything is fine for me though.
@mikecycle I just tried it and it works ok for me.
Try deleting all the C:\Users\Username\Documents\BeamNG.drive\cache.x.x.x.x folders and restarting the game.
@swift502 Yep deleted cache and all good.
Thanks mate, noob question haha
Well I don't expect anyone to regularly clear their cache
I guess it's just another strange thing about the Torque engine. Automatically cache half the map's assets just to confuse us.
