"Grand Theft Auto: Vice City Stories PC Edition" is a Total Conversion Modification for Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas, bringing you a port that Rockstar never gave you. In this modification we will be converting the map, all the characters, vehicles and weapons from the ORIGINAL game files as well as porting the games weather system and atmosphere. In this modification will also be a set amount of storyline missions and side missions which will increase with each BETA release, other things will also be available such as a redesigned menu, new neon lights, HUD, radio stations, etc as well as an attempt to look through the history of the game and bring back some BETA designs as a special bonus for you. We have just released BETA3, codenamed "Blue Hesper", so be sure to give that a download and check it out! We hope you enjoy the mod and we will do our best to keep working on it. Just a reminder though, there's only a few of us actually working on this project so we do NOT know when or if we'll ever be finished but we will keep you all updated. In the meantime, enjoy our current work and spread your support! -VCS Team

Hey guys, Ash here bringing you an update on what's been happening over the past few weeks.

First off, the map is nearing completion, each area is now done and is under going bug fixing, corrections and SOME re-mastering in areas that really could benefit from a face lift. We're also going back over to some previous areas to fix more bugs and other issues pointed out. We still can't give an exact release date for the Silver Palmetto build but it is coming at some point, we've not abandoned anything!

A lot of the team are busy with school work and other things sadly, but progress is coming along nicely in the modeling, mapping and vehicle department, there's also been a huge boost in the coding for the mod with plenty of bug fixes but there's still a lot of loose ends remaining, especially when it comes to the empire related stuff, which is why mission progression has been so slow, we need to nail this first before we can move on and that's taken most of our time.

Translation wise, we actually have a little translation team going now! There's a couple of guys who are helping out and we're hoping by the time of release to ship this build with roughly FIVE languages, that will be English, German, Polish, Hungarian and Romanian. So a big thanks to those helping out in the translation Dropbox.

Now we know we don't make posts often here on ModDB, infact we're mainly active over in our thread on GTAForums, so we do feel the need to at least try and reach out and communicate more with you guys it's just in all honesty, we don't have anything major to announce to warrant going through this process of posting up a news article, but we do keep in touch via the comments below both myself on the Luten account and of course Silent as 'CookiePLMonster'.

Now one area we've been asked about for months was do we accept Donations, and after holding this off as long as possible, the other members of the team would like this option, so as of, well, NOW, we're accepting donations through PayPal. If you want to help the team out and contribute a little something, feel free to do so, we'd appreciate it, we're not forcing anyone to donate, we're just having the option there because it would be nice to have a little support, especially from the update servers which we're currently using on borrowed time. If you do donate, leave a message, a comment, your name, or whatever so we know where you'd like us to focus on or if there's a specific member you'd wish to give the money to between CP, Silent, Luten and NTAuthority, personally I will NOT be accepting any money but I will be the one running this PayPal to make sure anything you give will go towards what's needed and whoever needs it the most.

So if you'd like to donate, do so at the following:



We will also be working on giving the website a bit more of an update as the weeks pass on, there's some other cool stuff we've got planned on the side to so we hope you guys will enjoy and of course we hope you're looking forward to the next build, be sure to leave us a comment letting us know what you think or if you have any questions.

Are you sure the installation actually finished, the folder can not be found message gets returned when the installer can't find your original San Andreas Installation, also, you should not be installing your game to the SAME folder as San Andreas, we only use that to gather the required files.

Can you please upload any update I am bored of playing it every time the same gameplay,upload anything in the updater like cars and mini-games so i can have more fun in the game.also I wanted you to know that in the time u are updating and fixing the game(a year from beta 3 until now)I went up to 79% on gta vcs on the ps2.I play the pc one cause i play with mouse and more graphics like shadows.Did you know too that u could add shadow meshes to buildings in gta sa through .ipl files if u did a separate version of the mod that contain shadows for every thing.It will be an awesome mod and will be like gta iv if you used enb.

Oh you want to see Shadows? You're going to like what we've done with the shadow engine then ;)

I59.tinypic.com

Also, no need to keep it separate, we have actual in game options to adjust this stuff native to the game, no need for ENB or plug-ins, other options include forcing Anisotropic Filtering up to 16x and MSAA up to 8x. The shadow stuff comes inspired from the Mobile Versions of Vice City and San Andreas where War Drum provided additional Shadow Options, which we thought would only be fair to include in our version of the game.

We know waiting sucks, and we know we're kinda sloppy at keeping people on ModDB updated (we have a thread over at GTAForums which we are active in though), but keep in mind that we are still working on this and it isn't exactly simple as just throwing a few things on the updater, with the changes made, the new models, converts, etc, are expecting code which was added into the game during some of the engine reworks, and some of that stuff is still in progress, so we'd rather complete as much of our internal targets as possible and release an update you guys can enjoy and hopefully not as buggy or glitchy as "Blue Hesper" was when we first released that.
