    (WARNING: This trailer was made in an alpha stage on a potato computer, quality doesn't reflect the final product!)

    Welcome to Vice City

    Inspired by @swift502 's port of GTA 3's Liberty City, I decided to team up with him to literally create the next step in the series, the 80tastic experience of Vice City!

    screenshot_2020-08-03_01-07-27.png screenshot_2020-08-03_01-05-08.png screenshot_2020-08-03_01-06-39.png screenshot_2020-06-29_16-16-35.png screenshot_2020-06-29_16-17-02.png screenshot_2020-08-03_01-09-45.png downtown_vc.png

    Features
    • Complete port of the whole Vice City map, with several spawn points included, including the following interiors built into the map itself (I suggest a Pigeon for entering these!):​
      • Malibu Club
      • Diaz's/Vercetti's Mansion
      • North Point Mall
      • Hyman Stadium Stunt Arena (Not directly accesible, only via spawn point , F7 key and/or world editor)
      • Pole Position Club
    • Added ambient sounds (beaches, mall and club music...) ground types behaviour (grass, sand, mud...), BeamNG Water (ocean, pools, particles...) and vertex lighting.​
    • Added dynamic night lighting* using BeamNG's light system to the entire map, as close to the original as possible, using more than 8.500 individual lights.​
    • +300 bug fixes and improvements on the original map, polishing the map for the modern and detailed times.​
    • AI Support and GPS Navigation support.​
    • Updated a few critical textures bastly used across the map.​
    • Optimised rendering using GTA VC's LOD models.
    • Several key points made BeamNG friendly, like access to Pay 'N' Spray shops (curb cuts added to the sidewalks) or certain iconic stunt stunts across the map. (to avoid wrecking your car on the first try...)
    • Mostly NSFW Friendly.
    • Added/changed a few Easter Eggs to suit BeamNG a bit more (Can you find them all?).
    • Animated blimp on Downtown area too!
    • Includes two Scenarios:
      • Demolition Van
      • Downtown Off-Road Challenge (Featuring a custom D-Series with a Landstalker replica config)
    • Includes a VCPD Skin-Config for the Police Grand Marshal and Vice City custom plates as well, which load automatically with the map.
    screenshot_2020-08-03_01-12-26.png screenshot_2020-08-03_12-57-51.png

    Known Bugs
    • Due to how water works in BeamNG, some specific areas of the map are flooded, like the underground mini-mall at Washington Beach, the underground parking garage at the marina, and the canal in Little Haiti (The option to avoid this is using water blocks, which along with the map itself, brings down the performance levels to unplayable levels, so sadly nothing can be done about it at the moment)

    • Certain spots in areas with a lot of grass, like the golf club, can behave like asphalt.

    -Download-
    (INSTRUCTIONS: Put the downloaded zip file in "C:\Users\username\Documents\BeamNG.drive\mods")

    *IMPORTANT NOTE: Since night lighting features casting shadows, it can cause performance issues in some computers, so a 'light' version is available, without casting shadows.

    -Changelog-


    Feedback, help, and suggestions are welcome! :)

    until there's a way to get every model imported into Beamng, then i really don't know. the SA map is too big for Beamng's map maker.

    Nice, I've always wanted this.

    Regarding this; just make a 3d mesh of a fence model similar to the texture, add a colmesh (since the mesh is 3d, the collision mesh will work better than a texture) and manipulate the pre-existing fence textures to fit with the 3d one. Here is a detailed explanation on how to get some map models in the game;

    This is an amazing map! thanks a lot.

    A thing ive noticed while playing in it.
    There is a section between the airport and the military base that has weird road collisions.

    Also
    these skidmarks issues can be fixed with this in the materials.cs for the grass material.

    Thank you! :)

    Yes, that's close to what I have in mind, it also looks bad being 100% 2D, so it's definitely going to go on that direction.

    Driving and going around, yes. On free cam moving quickly, it can lag a bit.

    I play on a computer with a 3.30 GHz i5 2500K, 16 Gb RAM, and a GeForce GTX 660, quite an average computer nowadays I guess, and it moves quite nicely most of the time.

    Thanks! Will look at that road, and disabling the skidmaks on the grass materials, will still behave like asphalt in those segments, but it's quite an improvement :)

    I appreciate your effort on converting this great map :)

    Btw, I did find an issue in the Diaz's mansion, where a roof blocks a pathway to the helipad thru the stairway. If it is possible, it should be removed by modifying the model a little, or adding no collision there.

    Please delete the cache folder at:

    C:\Users\username\Documents\BeamNG.drive

    If it still doesn't work, maybe the 'materials' files scattered around the main folder should be deleted, except the ones in the mod folder of course.

    Thank you :)

    Search for all 'main.materials' files at:

    C:\Users\username\Documents\BeamNG.drive

    and delete them, except the ones you may have in any unpacked mod folder, which will break even more things, should work with this.
