GTA IV Realistic Snowfall v1.01

by Flash
Please explain why you're reporting this file:

This is my first mod.

This mod replaces the rain by snowfalls and make a realistic winter atmosphere when it's snowing

Drizzle is replaced by light snow
Rain is replaced by moderate / heavy snowfall
The lightning-storm is replaced by a blizzard
And there is a new foggy effect, more "freezing" !!

In v1.01, the snow is a little more intense...

Would be cool if there was also some rain at some weather or is it not possible?

How is this different from the snow in Snow Mod v2.0 ?
Posted on October 14, 2013 1:36PM by ReNNie
In Snow mod v2 the snow always falls horizontal and snowflakes are transparents, and very big. It doesn't seem real.

I'd like to make a video but now I don't have the time to do this...

But I'll work on it this during week!

Great! ;)

There's other annoying thing in Snow Mod as well- when the wheels of a car spin, they throw the grass away, not snow. Could you do something about it? It doesn't look good at all...

This is a very big problem I'm trying to fix since many months... I don't find the solution to delete the "grass" effect on snow. I'm searching on many files in pc-data-map, or gtxd, textures etc...

I think the grass throw is done in gta_grass.fxc (shaders)

Know how to decompile shaders? You might have your answer.

Thank you I will try it now

But I don't know how to decompile shaders...
Posted on October 16, 2013 6:15AM by Nik02
Yeah, many people do, include P1ch3 I believe, but I can't find information on decompiling the shaders. Anyway, another possible of a "low tech" way to do it is maybe switching the materialFX for what type of shader is called when spinning on grass - materialFX or another plain text file might be usable. So switch grass FX with the same effect from Rain (so that it calls the texture or a water spray) rather than the dirt. I think the shader causes the engine to sample a grass texture as well, but don't know for sure.

I found the solution ! This is in "vahicleFx.dat" (C:\...\GTAIV \common\data\effects). We have to replace in the file all the "wheel_friction_grass" by "wheel_friction_water", and replace "wheel_disp_grass" by "-" and when we drive on snow, the bad "grass" effect is gone !!!

Thanks for your help

This makes the snow mod even better, it's really awesome. You did a terrific job on this and it shows. I have a question for you. Is there anyway to get the ELS lights to look better during those weathers where there's light to heavy snow fall. It's for the police car lights if you don't know what I'm talking about. They look really bad. Definitely 10/10 for this one ya dig!!.

I just seen one of your videos on youtube with the red dead desert v1.2 map mod and you made a snow version of that map. I hope you can get permission from the author of that map mod so you can release it. It looks amazing man. Please find a way to release it.

Might have to install a snow-mod when Winter starts for a change. :)
