    Algonquin

    Off the heels of all the 3D Universe maps comes GTA IV's Liberty City, ported to BeamNG.

    This is a direct port of Algonquin, the largest borough in Liberty City, based on Manhattan. I don't plan to port the other boroughs at this time.

    Please be aware that this project will take a very long time. Currently about 70% of the map is ported, but that's not counting props—trees, lampposts, newspaper boxes, fences, road blocks, etc., all of those have to be added, and that process alone will take a long time. This map will not be released anytime soon.
    The reason I made this thread now, and not upon release, was so that I could have one place to share development progress and screenshots.

    The map will have:
    • The entire borough of Algonquin, plus Colony Island
    • All bridges leading out of Algonquin, albeit blocked off
    • Ground type behavior (grass, dirt, wood, cobblestone, metal grates, etc)
    • Original billboard textures (no custom ones)
    • The Liberty City license plate
    • Some easter eggs

    The map will not have:
    • Night lighting
    • Interiors
    • Subway tunnels
    • Broker, Dukes, Bohan, Alderney, Charge Island, or Happiness Island
    • Accessible underground areas (such as underpasses and tunnels) due to being flooded by BeamNG's water system
    • Perfect collision (expect tire-shreddy curbs and car-absorby fences)
    • Good performance

    In the future, the map may have:
    • DLC buildings (Tony’s nightclubs, Luis' safehouse, the Angels of Death clubhouse, etc.)
    • The other boroughs as low-detail background objects, as long as they don't severely impact performance
    • AI support (if I can figure out how it works)
    • Animated background objects (planes, etc.)
    • A minimap
    (all of these are just maybes for now, no promises)

    Current progress as of 4/14/2021:

    I think you can actually do that. I've seen it on BeamMP-Servers. I believe the loading screen is just a HTML file.

    except it's not map-dependant so it would be a GTA 4 loading screen for all maps.

    You would think rockstar had something better to do but then again.. this is rockstar.

    Praying this doesnt get hit with a DMCA or takedown notice.

    I know this question may sound stupid, but how do you have the map at semi playable frame rates? I know you said it will not have good performance but I assume with how high poly the models are that you will need to have it run well

    I thought this was impossible because of all the assets and stuff, but i am mistaken. Looking forward to this honestly. GTA 4 is the best GTA game IMO and even today it's such a good game to play. The map itself is just awesome. Cannot wait to take pictures on this map.

    This looks really promising, hopefully it won't be taken down.

    I wonder if you could post a small test now so people can play with the little bit of it now?
    --- Post updated ---
    if you are making a low mesh quality rest of the map can it maybe have collisions?

    Just be patient. There's a reason it's not released just yet
