(Original mod (without updates) with included fix, some other fixes and new English translation)

Basic information (details in ReadMe_RU.txt, in Russian).

--------------
1. INSTALL

Carefully follow the instructions, otherwise the game might not work properly. Install the modification on the ORIGINAL game.

The modification is not deleting automatically, make backup before you install.

0. Extract archive with mod.

Move file forest_sign.txd from folder "english_version\gta3_img" in folder "1. gta3_img".

Then move file proc_rub.txd from folder "english_version\gta_int_img" in folder "2. gta_int_img".

1. With Alci's IMG Editor add ALL FILES from folder "1. gta3_img" with using command: Action -> Import (remove if exists) in the IMG archive
GTA San Andreas\models\gta3.img. Then rebuild archive.

2. Same way add ALL FILES from folder "2. gta_int_img" in the IMG archive GTA San Andreas\models\gta_int.img. Make rebuild.

3. Same way add ALL FILES from folder "3. player_img" in the IMG archive GTA San Andreas\models\player.img. Make rebuild.

4. Install "4. summer.exe" in game directory.

Well done!

After you can install updates for the mod that you can download separately from Mod DB. Do not forget to check the directory "Bonus"!

------
If you install Endless Summer on HRT Pack 1.3 (original version with autoinstallation), copy all from folder "Only for HRT Pack" to game directory
and delete file Liberty_City.cs from "CLEO" folder.

--------------
2. HINTS AND TIPS

2.1. Hints and tips in gameplay you can see in Gameplay_EN.txt.

------
2.2. Performance problems

On some computers can be performance problems. To solve them, try to find the optimal graphics settings through ENB Selector (enb_selector.exe in game folder).
ENB Selector menu is on the Russian language. Meaning of buttons:

"Высокие" — High;
"Средние" — Medium;
"Низкие" — Low;
"Очень низкие" — Very low;
"Отключить траву" — Disable mapping of the grass.

------
2.3. Other problems.

* If after installing the mod, some trees have white texture, or the game does not start, then the modification has been installed not properly.

* If game seems too bright, make the brightness settings lower (Options > Display).

* If after minimizing sounds of nature or music on the beach continue to play, you have minimized the game not properly. Before minimizing press ESC.

* If game displays a windows about the lack of DLL-files, see Bonus folder.

* On testing we observed a rare small bug (?) in a Beach Party script: the music on the beach doesn't always play. Can help minimizing and maximizing the game
(no more than once, or two songs will be playing in parallel), you also can just remove the script (file beach.cs from CLEO folder).

Also see thread on GTAForums about the mod (http://gtaforums.com/index.php?showtopic=527073) and Mod DB page (https://moddb.com/mods/endless-summer).

--------------
3. INNOVATIONS

All textures are photorealistic;

* New timecyc.dat;

* New particle effects;

* More people on the streets;

leading to the attic — attic was added in the Update 2, there was a game machine with a new game); more lives for bears for more dangerous hunting;
