I can't tell you how much I enjoy revisiting gta vc after all these years. Your mod plus nvidia 16xAA and it looks stunning. I'm quite happy to uncover you little hidden details. It's a joy to stumble upon something new that wasn't there at the start. I wish there would be more :D

Anyway, the purpose of my writing, besides assuring you of my close to infinite gratefulness, is to ask if the mod is complete - that is, if it reached it's final version or you, still, are working in god knows how awesome improvements?

And another question: is it possible to change FOV? After an hour playing on tv - it starts to feel a bit dizzy

Situation with mod progress is currently... complicated.
For me as a person - 2 years of developemnt just for v1.8 is too much (v1.9 would probably take another 2 years). At the moment - there is nothing new besides Winter Edition and patch 1.8.1 which I am preparing.

For FOV - try searching on gtaforums/gtagarage. I only know there's widescreen fix: Gtaforums.com

One more thing...

"3. In case of meeting any of the mod crew members, the user agrees on having a beer with the modder."

Made my day.

I really love vice cry, but I want more neons.
Is possible add that in the next version?


PS: If you add San Andreas Peds or something, I can make cool retextures.
