We couldn't make a good decision for a long time. Your opinions, comments and arguments let us see, that there is no perfect solution, no ideal option. We've decided to make a plan of development, which we would like to present you:

Vice Cry 1.8 is going to be released in next few weeks (from 3 to 10 weeks, approximately). It will feature everything we've done so far and we're proud of. The last part of the map we will renovate is Ocean Beach.

We're going to start the postproduction and final testing, and after that - bugfixing and optimization work.

The main archive is going to be divided into few smaller ones, containing particular grups of objects (vehicles, peds, weapons, not remodelled buildings, etc.).

Main archive's division into a few smaller ones is a consequence of 1.8's fluent development - we haven't done anything with peds nor weapons so far, but we will take care of them in the future. Thanks to this solution, our work and final patch installing process are going to be a lot easier and fast.

Furthermore, we've added one more addon made by non-team member, which is Adtec_224's plugin - and I'll be honest, we didn't receive any message from this author - we've been waiting for it since last year's september. If Adtec_224 shows up and don't let us use his plugin in Vice Cry, of course we will remove it, as soon as it's possible.

Rest in peace

There's no need to install patch 1.1 from Rockstar - we have repaired everything in 1.8

"The rage one looks higher quality"


Dude - are you blind? They used original old models and original old textures. RAGE gives them dynamic shadows, water reflections and better physics - that's all. In addition to this - on RAGE-projects you can not do anything more than driving around.
For the rest technical info - please read the description.

No? Maybe it's just me. I don't mean to diminish your work. What you're doing is wonderful. That's just from what I saw off hand. What do u mean by original old models and textures? Original as in the ones originally in Vice? The models of the buildings look great in Rage. What originals? The vehicles look better in Rage from what I can tell as well. I think it's sweet how you can shoot with different weapons in rage as well as point them, but that's more a feature of GTA IV. The palms are a bit off in Rage. I like them better in Cry. The water in Rage is unrealistic. I like it better in Cry again. The railings in both look good, but the ones in rage seem to just fit more. The walls in the foreground look great too on Rage. Maybe Vice Cry would have looked better with it brighter? The sky in Cry looks quite nice. I need a video on youtube or something of Cry. What I wonder is if the Rage version actually retextured everything like you all are doing. I think that's AMAZING. So much work as well. Mmm, I wish the people would have continued with Vice City HD. That was looking awesome as well. I'm surprised that's all RAGE gives them. Yeah, that's something I don't like about the RAGE ones is that there is nothing to do, but then again, I guess once you complete the game that's all there is to do as well.
