HRT means high resolution textures, and one of the main mod's features is full textures replacement. Textures are maximum similar to the original ones. They are photorealistic (based on author's photos and textures from open libraries), adjusted for colors and contrast of original textures, made in high definition quality!

HRT 1.4 contains improved models (some models are more detailed and smoothed, fixed a lot of original game defects) and other details.

Mission of the mod is to provide a more modern graphics with preservation of the original game's atmosphere.

Finally I can say that work on LAn is really finished. Works on the next section, LAn2, are already continued.

A lot of time there are not any articles about the mod (if you are interested the mod, do not forget to check Mod DB page for images and mod's site for reports), and because of this it will not be superfluous to remind you about the latest progress and, generally, clarify, what does it mean, all these LAn, LAn2 and so on.

From what it would be better to start? All users who researched arrangement, structure of GTA: San Andreas, know that whole territory of the game is divided on not only the cities, like Los Santos. Each city has a certain number of sections. These sections have technical names. When I talk that I working on some section, I mean that I working on some part of some city that have a certain technically name, for example, LAn2.

Now let's look on the Development progress map. On the map is visually showed progress, how many parts of the state are made and what percentage of readiness they have. Los Santos's progress now is marked as 100%, but progress of the second pass is 40%.

Let me remind about the second pass. Mod is in the development for very long time and my skills are not standing still. Despite that fact, that I've already remade LS textures, in previous year I decided to remake it again, because quality of old variants of textures did not satisfy me. Exactly this I call the second pass.

San Fierro also is almost finished, but and there, probably, will be the second pass. Las Venturas and other places is not started, but I hope that a lot of textures in these places and repeatable (the same as used for Los Santos), and I will use already remade textures.

Thus, I working on Los Santos and few month ago wrote that I've already finished the first section, LAn. But after then I spent time brought all to mind and improve more possible objects.

Only now I moved to the next part, the next goal — the second part of Los Santos.


And there is not intrigue with it's name, section is named LAn2. I hope you are not entangled with all these data. Well. Second part of LS. LAn2.

For first, I'll post few comparison images with some materials textures. Like and earlier, lower image is a new texture, upper — is an old one.

Can't wait for this to actually get released !!! Though I don't mean that you should rush anything to get it released as soon as possible. I'd rather play SA with the mods available now and have a whole new experience again when you release this mod.

Some feedback on HRT 1.3:

I loved the original look it still had!
A slight downside though, the textures did not look good without full AA enabled so you might want to take a look at them from low end system users perspective (It's even more noticable when Anisotropic Filtering is at 16x)!

Thanks for your opinion and good words about my mods, LaDiDa! Also I glad that you play in my previous mod, despite the fact that I find some things in the mod are very simple, I like it.

In old HRT Pack 1.3 textures can display "not smoothed" because they have not MIP maps. This is very useful feature. Anisotropic filtering, as for me, can help in this situation. But not too much. For experiment, you can enable it in video card's driver settings.

I will not add MIP maps to the textures in old mod, but in new HRT 1.4 each texture will be with mipmaps, thanks to this textures will look quality on any distance.

Hey Flame, just a suggestion, why not release the open beta ASAP without finishing the second pass yet so we all can help you with looking for any bugs that you might miss rather than finding all the bugs on your own ?

Hello, whatsmaniac. I thought before about this idea, but this will be the same as release the mod by parts, or release as the demo (again as the part). Each time I understand that I don't want to release raw mod.

An open beta version will be, but before all the main works with location textures must be finished. In this case really will be needed only searching of the bugs, polishing and adding of little details. Will see, maybe I'll change opinion later and the mod will be released raw, but now I don't want this.

Also I don't want to change release dates each time and understand how difficult to wait the mod for people who really wait it.

Hello there, Flame. One question, with you are working on the Los Santos Second Pass, are you sure that you will finish the rest of the map at the time of release?

Thanks for the answer.

I don't want to be a ranter and change release dates each time, but maybe I am too overconfident, because I hope that main works can be finished this year. Final version will not be released, but as open beta version mod, I hope, can be released this year.

No "buggy" cutscenes, mod will be developed, not least, for those users who want to pass all the storyline missions. It will be fully compatible with storyline and missions and made special for single-player.
