    (first texture and graphical mod for GTA San Andreas with this feature);

    (first texture and graphical mod for GTA San Andreas with this feature);

Most momentous event in recent times for me, as for author of the modification is opening of the official site of HRT 1.4:!

Site was launched (only formally launched, because user could see only «Coming soon» page) in December 2013. And only now site opens its doors for users. I hope, you'll like it. Site will be a «main station», place where will be published all news, development reports, materials about the mod. Now site is on a very early stage of development and it will be constantly improved.

Second important news is the release of new video (few days ago on my channel was added its announce). New video timed to the opening of site and shows giant section of the game (territory of GTA: San Andreas is divided on different sections) that named SFe.

This is the most long video at the moment (five minutes) and first long video from December 2013.

Soon work on this section will come to end. And, finally, the most pleasant moment will be moment when the mod will be finished. It will happen this year.

HRT 1.4

HRT 1.4 — is a global modification for GTA: San Andreas. HRT 1.4 keeps the style of original game, but raises the level of graphics with using really high definition textures and enhanced models.

Mod will be released in 2014.

When you finish this you should then port it to IV:SA.

No. HRT 1.4 is self-sufficient. If it will exist as a "wrapper" (addon) for another mod, it will deprive significance of my work. So I am against this idea. HRT - is mod only for GTA SA.

So no Rage version? That is unfortunate. Though, I would like to play it on normal SA, when I play IV SA, I think your mod would greatly improve IV SA as it feels like SA but looks better than the original textures.

I don't know if you mean that you don't want to convert it to IV SA, you don't want anyone else to convert it to IV SA, or both.

But I see your reasoning though about the significance. The VCS PC Edition team is the same way. I don't understand if your view changes based on whether you release both versions, or you only release SA and someone else ports it.

The other thing I don't understand about this significance thing is what you think it would be like. I don't know if you think that IV SA would be released with this on it, or it would be an add on. I could see it not showing significance if IV SA installed your mod on by default.

So lets pretend you said yes. IV SA would still come with the original SA textures. People would download HRT V1.4 through the launcher's add on download page and install it. You would be credited for the add on and it would still be all you. In the files, it would be an img file that is loaded at the top of the images.txt that contains only your textures. They would load instead of the textures in the mods files. I hope we are on the same page here. I'm thinking that the way we have the add on system set up in the launcher, the significance would still greatly be applied. I hope you agree. Have you seen what the IV SA Launcher's download page looks like? Might help you understand.

Luckily, it is easy to convert SA textures to IV SA for personal use. It would still have that significance as it was still downloaded by the person who did the personal conversion.

If I allow someone to include my mod into the mod which ported SA to the RAGE engine, 80% of the graphics in such mod will be created from my textures...

However, HRT 1.4 longer perceived as a complete product, and I do not want my work (is working on a project for over three years and it is on this version - more than a year) disappeared.

Furthermore, in my view, these projects (like IV:SA) make sense ONLY if the authors themselves doing full graphic remastered.

Briefly: HRT 1.4 is mod only for GTA SA, I am against its porting now.

The point of "simple" here meant there's no entirely new different textures in the mod. It is a HD remake, but still keeps a lot of its originality. I kinda like it as well :)
