What is 'GTA United'?

GTA United Logo
Grand Theft Auto United is a modification based on 'GTA San Andreas' for the PC. The target of this modification is to unite in only one game the game areas, the so called 'maps', of the two GTA Games 'GTA III' and 'GTA Vice City' on basis of the graphic- and physic engine of 'GTA San Andreas'. The map of 'GTA San Andreas' therefore gets replaced.

'GTA United' is exclusive for the two GTA-Fansites www.gtainside.com and www.gta-worldmods.de and is only allowed to be hosted on these two sites. Furthermore, GTA United is not commercial, the developer team doesn't earn money with the modification, but create it free for everyone to access it on GTA-Worldmods and GTAInside.

How everything has begun

Official GTA United promotion screenshotOn the 05.03.2006 was the birth of 'GTA United'. Back then Aschratt got the idea, to convert the map of 'GTA Vice City' to 'GTA San Andreas'. The idea of 'VC2SA' was born. It didn't take long, and the first fellows of Aschratt joined 'VC2SA', the project what was known firstly under the name 'Vice City Mod'.
Official GTA United promotion screenshotOn the 01.04.2007 at 12 o'clock it was finally done. The Beta 1 of 'Vice City 2 San Andreas' were released; the first step was done. VC2SA didn't need to fear competition back then

Meanwhile now the user AMD had on the 30.12.2006 the same idea as Aschratt with 'VC2SA'; with the difference, that AMDs target was, to convert the map of 'GTA III' to 'GTA San Andreas'. The LC2SA Team was founded quickly, too, which finally released on the 02.06.07, 2 months after the release of VC2SA, Beta 1 of 'Liberty City 2 San Andreas'; the second step was done.

The Alliance of the two Teams:

The two teams of VC2SA and LC2SA, under the leading of Aschratt and AMD, decided to be one big cooperation team; the great modification of GTA-Worldmods and GTAInside, Grand Theft Auto United, was born.Official GTA United promotion screenshot
From now on the team worked no longer separated on the targets to replace the map of 'GTA San Andreas' with the map of 'GTA III' or 'GTA Vice City' - they worked on the target to replace the map of 'GTA San Andreas' with both maps of 'GTA III' and 'GTA Vice City' simultaneously.

The Development needed nearly six months, but was finally crowned with success. On the 03.11.2007, one week after the announcement that the VC2SA and LC2SA Teams transformed into one big team, the Beta 1 of 'GTA United' was released, which replaced now the map of 'GTA San Andreas' with the map of 'GTA III' and 'GTA Vice City'; what wasn't the whole time in dry towels.

The next milestone was Beta 1.1 of 'GTA United' that was released on the 05.04.2008. In this Beta 1.1 many bugs were fixed and also new things were added.

From this point on, the progress on the mod came step by step, impaired by the quitting of more and more team members, including the originally leaders AMD and Aschratt.

This represents the latest and largest milestone in the 'GTA United' History. So 'GTA United 1.2' is not only a new version, it's a new experience. It has a completely improved technical background, so there is a new limit adjustment system and also the map and script structure has been overhauled from the ground up, so the game is significantly more stable now. On the features side, 'GTA United 1.2' contains tons of map improvements, like fixed rooftops, new garages, new shops and various accessible interiors.

The Future

After the release of GTA United 1.2, there are no concrete plans for another version. But it is not completely impossible, that another version will be developed.


Since GTA United is a community project born and raised on GTAinside and GTA-Worldmods it is protected through exclusive rights and only downloadable on those 2 sites.


The website gtasrv.ru offers an adaption of SA-MP for GTA United 1.2. All information and the download of the multiplayer client can be found there.
This adaption has not been created by the official GTA United Development Team.

gtaunited.net - Launch Successful!

About one and a half years after the release of GTA United 1.2, there is now something new to report: gtaunited.net launched officially today!
So now Grand Theft Auto United has its own web presence, which allows to bundle all information around the modification in a central place.
Thus the site contains, among other things, all previously published news reports, pictures, videos and downloads of GTA United and its predecessor modifications LC2SA and VC2SA.
Originally such an 'archive' was planned earlier, but due to time constraints it is only now gone online.

The future of Grand Theft Auto United

Will there be a new version of GTA United?
This question is still not answered unequivocally, interest and motivation to develop the mod further are still there, especially in light of the new developments (12) in the region of limit adjusting. 
So with this, the original vision of GTA United - The merging of all maps of the GTA III trilogy in the San Andreas engine - came a little step closer, even if there are still some hurdles.
If there actually a new version will be released depends like so many things, on the fact if I will find enough time to create a version that contains enough new features that make a release worthwhile.

Stay tuned...

There are two phone missions, that is correct. Furthermore you can find ten "Like a Bird" missions, various checkpoint races and more. You just need to explore the world a bit.

Just to make sure, is the second phone mission bugged or I am supposed to mysteriously teleport myself onto the plane? Its just impossible. Also if theres something else you need to do to reach the plane in time, it should be included in mission directives.

Try the mission with Frame Limiter on. Please give me feedback, if that solved your problem.

Great! It works now. I even had to wait for the plane like 30 seconds :D. It also helped in the part with chasing the boat, I didnt have to make any special maneuvres like I had to do before. Thanks. By the way, could you have a look at traffic? The NPC driven cars act weirdly (they turn like 90 degrees at their max speed on crossroads). FPS limiter helps a little, but they are still simply too fast in these situations. Also, when you hit a NPC car, it automatically goes rage and drives like a maniac (now Im not speaking about agresive drivers ramming into you). And last thing about traffic I noticed is that when you do for example vigilante missions and shoot someone in the head while still driving, he dies but the cars drives on its own and even turns/brakes like if there was a driver insides. I dunno if this isnt more of a GTA San Andreas bug, though. Anyway, thanks again for the help and keep up the good work.

And another bug. I dont know what caused it, but doors leading out of interiors dont open, while they do open upon entering an interior.

Otherwise this mod is awesome.

Damn, 5 minutes is not enough. I found out that the bug has been solved after restarting the game.
