SAES Vice City - 15th Birthday


  • SAES/VCES will be 15 years old on the 23rd of November.

    I have a Vice City server ready to go for the birthday (its deathmatch based atm)

    However, what's your opinion on this server? Do you want it to run a DM server and replace RvB / DM zone or would you like it linked to the current game mode where you can purchase a "flight" to Vice City and buy houses, play as police or criminal and do the things you can currently do on the main server?

    We are still taking donations, if you wish to donate 5GBP or more (from today, game give-away was scrapped), you will receive beta access to test the new server and we also have a few more donation perks in the works (something to do with the words, pack and jet?)

    The poll ends on 31st October.

    Video below shows the DM gamemode based on the old MTAVC core:

  • Never been there but pictures make me wish it 😊


  • linking would be nice. It would also be nice if a gang that reaches {insert level here (could also be level 6 or new stuff)} has a 2nd spawn in vice city


  • na Vice city is really bad for RPG man, San Andreas Better


  • This is something really new in MTA. I digged into this couple of weeks ago I found no server in MTA running VC map. All we gotta focus right now is to improve its gameplay and then we get a big shot to attract more people in SAES. ^^


  • @carter don't know if you're talking about the map or the game, but the video is GTA SA game on GTA VC map.

    Anyhow, a DM or even PUBG like script would be good enough, imo. I don't see RP happening in there, but then again, no much RP happens in SAES either.

    Now @Brophy, quick question, when you say "(...) linked to the current game mode where you can purchase a "flight" to Vice City and buy houses, (...)", you mean teleport to an area / dimension where the map is or connect to a new server which is running the map? Because, if we could have 2 maps in 1 server that would be FREAKING DOPE.

    not doable
    SA map afaik is built of 6000x6000 units and SA is occupying the majority of it. anything outside the 6K can't have objects rendered although you can still fly there, iirc.
    also you would encounter issues with object replacements, you cannot simply add an additional 4000 objects to the game, only replace existing ones.

    one could argue "but hey, just merge houses and buildings into 1 dff to save space!" but that won't work too well as you'll have streaming issues of said objects being too high KB. there are also object limitations of (iirc) 255 units from one end to another. collisions will be significantly larger (assuming you merge them, duh) which often results in pressure on your computer, rather than the streamer having to load small bits at once, it will have to load large bits at once.

    this is possible on GTA SA, check GTA UNITED and other projects


  • run an MTA VC server like you did few years ago


  • It will be two servers but the flight can be animated then we can use the following function.

    It possibly could be done with dimensions and dynamic loading and unloading but will be too much for the potato computers
