Last mod in Winter Mod series, released originally in 2013 and re-released in updated edition in 2014 with fixes and improvements.

Winter Mod 3.0
Updated edition



Winter Mod 3.0 for GTA: Vice City invites you into the winter fantasy: Vice City is fully covered with snow. A huge layer of snow covered roads and lawns, roofs of houses and shops, even trees are in the snow now. Passers have to dress warmly. Car drivers must be cautious: they slide on the snow surface. You hear noise of blizzard, snow falls huge flakes, and it becomes clear: this is a real winter!

Cold winter


Winter Mod, from version 3.0 made from scratch, made with an unprecedented approach to quality. The main feature — it is, of course, snow. Snow covered all the roads and sidewalks, all buildings are covered with snow, even vehicles and plants. To achieve this it was necessary to process a huge amount of textures. In version 3.0, developed in one time with HRT 1.4, these textures are made in new capacity and highest resolution.

Winter weather: long evenings and nights, gloomy sky, snow is falling... Changed atmosphere sounds: you can hear sounds of snowstorm, blizzard, wind howling.

For all vehicles using simulation of winter roads.

Cool graphics


Mod contains a lot of technical innovations, included really unique for GTA: Vice City: game looks really cool with using of high quality materials and a powerful combination of two graphics libraries that add a lot of new modern effects: bloom, real-time reflections, motion blur, anisotropic filtration, aliasing, vignette (darkening of the edges), color correction, additional sharpness etc.

With new particle effects (water, sky, fire) game looks as good, as never before.

Warm clothes


All pedestrians clothed into more worm clothes. Tommy is also not left without new things in the locker room: and in the game, and in cutscenes he can be dressed into new clothes.

Snowdrifts of other changes


Tommy now can walk, not only run as earlier.

You can enable new Freeride Mode (with this option you can play the game without missions and storyline, only free discovering the city).

New radio station with songs dedicated for Christmas and New Year (and yet another station you can install from Bonus folder).

This mod is unique in that sense, that this is the first mod with powerful combination of few graphics libraries which improve graphics. With exclusive menu you can configure each option of the mod and change different settings and optimize mod for your computer. And all these — not all changes that were made for the mod.

This is first cross-platfrom mod for GTA, because it is released not only for PC (main version) but also (as experimental version) for Android!

You should make backup of your game before installation. Because almost all mods (99%) do not have uninstall feature and it is not needed.
