um this may or may not have been asked before but this above everything else for me would be great...
Is there anyway the time travelling effects can be reviewed? For example;
1) wider and much much longer sparks
2) blue sparks
3) sparks that come off the wormhole
4) brighter wormhole
5) wormhole less circular, more jagged shape
6) wormhole more transparent round edges
7) wormhole bends around the front of delorean and is 3D, (not flat, almost like a curved "nose"over the front)
8 ) sparks that go more vertically up and don't ride horizontally along the top of the delorean

These are just suggestions, I don't know if anyone else would agree with any of these. I of course understand most of these won't be possible with whats available to do and you have already done an incredible job to pull off what you've done already. Just answer 'yes' or 'no' for each one or u can go into each one further if u can, either would be great.
Thanks for your time

1) looks bad. I've tried when i added them.
2) sparks are shared by vehicles, so can't do that without having scrapes producing blue sparks
3) they do, but since they're textures, full 3d depth is hard to perceive.
4) It's just a texture. Can't make any glow effects
5) if anyone wants to do it
6) if anyone wants to do it
7) it's a texture, not even a 3d model. Think sprites.
8) doesn't look good either. Looks more like an angry delorean.

ok thanks, just to clarify for 5) and 6), this is what i mean (i drew the wormhole myself so excuse the lack of quality, but this would be my ideal wormhole):

yes, i know what you're saying, but it's a sprite that will look like that from every angle. So basically, from the side, if you have it wrapping around the delorean, when you go back to the standard view, the shape is still the same and the wormhole will look like it's wrapping over to the side of the delorean. And, if you go to the opposite side view, it will wrap the other way, not around the delorean but in front of it. It looks cool for only one view, but becomes an eyesore in other views. Sadly, thats what these textures are. Just sprites.

hey will instant time travel be in 0.2d because i know any easy way to do it

Aug 26 2007, 8:55pm Anchor

so do I. non instant time travel is the harder.

Aug 26 2007, 10:32pm Anchor

ok thanks for the reply. Could you tell me which texture or particle to change for the wormhole just so i could play around with it (i won't publish or anything)?

Aug 26 2007, 10:52pm Anchor

same way you do a skin, except easier. Since the thing will look like what the texture is, instead of being wrapped around.

Aug 26 2007, 11:31pm Anchor

so whats the .txd file called?

Aug 26 2007, 11:40pm Anchor

easy to tell. Just look around the txds in models

Aug 27 2007, 2:03am Anchor

so will instant time travel be in 0.2d

Aug 27 2007, 5:04am Anchor

will instant time travel be an option (depending on what View you using) or will it be the only kind

If its is the depending on view does thaat mean youv added an in-car view to the game because that would be FREAKIN awesome

Aug 27 2007, 7:12am Anchor

Is it possible to take out the RC explosion trigger?
i know in the normal game you could blow up stuff with RC cars, but thats not suppose to happen with the Delorean in RC mode.

And could the mouse be enabled for rotating the view of the camera while driving, just like in the other GTA series.

Aug 27 2007, 7:36am Anchor

no and no.

Aug 27 2007, 8:08am Anchor

You can't or you wont? maybe a little motivation with th anwsers.
cuz why is the rc explode function enabled?
does it have a function to blow up the delorean? didn't see Doc blow up the delorean.

and the camera view mouse control, why not...thats standard in GTA....very usefull when driving around and you wanna look around.

Aug 27 2007, 8:10am Anchor

no because it cant be removed, its hard coded. and no because vice city doesnt support that. only SA and upwards does

Aug 27 2007, 8:20am Anchor

Ok, think that explains it....thank you.
with the camera steer, think i'm convused with the versions(III/VC/SA..PC/PS2)

Aug 27 2007, 9:40am Anchor

replay you can move the camera around.

Aug 27 2007, 11:18am Anchor

just another feature that would be cool...a working voltage regulastor function. Once the bttf1 comes back from a time travel, you have to discharge the flux capacitor....

to know what i mean, click here.....

Aug 27 2007, 12:08pm Anchor

that would get boring after a while wouldnt it

Aug 27 2007, 12:10pm Anchor

oooooo, that would be fun...............if we had a graphical interface for that instead of buttons. But since i'm running out of buttons, lets say it's on automatic mode in the mod.

Aug 27 2007, 12:40pm Anchor

that does sound good

could you make the coils look like this btw?

User Posted Image

I'm not adding it though. Adds too much to the game and doesn't really have a point, especially when all the buttons are tied elsewhere.

No, can't add glowing effects for the last time in vice city, or even san andreas. I can only make it a solid color. The coils can be made to look like that, but you lose the blue glow around it, and the luminosity that it gives off. It'll just look like painted coils.

Aug 27 2007, 1:15pm Anchor

it's a nice feature, and it's not too much....

also you could code blinking-only : without the beep sound.
