GTA IV Realistic Snowfalls Mod v2 0 CHRISTMAS Edition (© By Flash)

This is a special update for christmas 2013 !!

Another quite big update with last improvements concerning the size, the quality of texture, the moving speed of the snow, the atmosphere colors with and WITHOUT snowfalls.
For "extra sunny/sunny/sunny-windy/cloudy" weather, timecyc settings come from "Weather Eye IV" (made by boxmonster), download link below.
For "rain/drizzle/fog/lightnings", I make a very realistic snow weather directly inspired by true NY picture under snowfalls (with very realistic colours for day and night).
The sound of rain and thunder has been deleted, like during real snow weather.
Then, for christmas, I include some surprise in "options" file (new snowy map, snowmobiles with cool handling...) !!

It's more easy to install the mod, now you no longer have to edit with notepad your timecyc.dat or visualsetting.dat with some risks of mistake and bad surprises.

Here is the list of the last changes :

-snowfalls now are really heavy, wet and strong
-snowflake size has even been increased (maximal realism)
-realistic texture for snowflakes
-snow falls as fast as in real life
-snow and wind are now really intense and fast in blizzard
-realistic freezing fog effect during snowfalls, and very low visibility in blizzard
-colours are now very realistic during daytime, then yellow light and "photorealistic" snowfall atmosphere during night
-realistic effects without snow (using "Weather Eye IV", download :
-it's now really easy to install the mod
-(for snowmod v2), the ugly grass effect on snow on ground is now deleted (ption)
-the "rain and thunder" sounds have been deleted during snowfalls (option)
-and some surprises in "option" folder !!!!!!

to Flash ( or anyone who can help please )

I have two quick questions:

1)what is the vehiclefx really? what do you mean by it deletes the grass effects?

2) what makes the sky and clouds change quality? is it only the timecyc? if so then can I grab from another graphic MOD the timecyc only without using the rest of the ENB. just grab the timecyc only and place it in the PC/data then the clouds and sky would look more realistic. IS THAT POSSIBLE?

To valentinbiguine :

1) If you use "Snow Mod v2.0" which's changing textures of the ground by snow, you will see the same effect as when you drive on the grass (this is very unrealistic). The vehiclefx of the snowfalls mod will change grass projection by water projection that looks more like snow.

2) I don't know if it's possible... I think it's not.

I'm sorry I forgot to put some files in the mod I re-upload it now !!

I see that there's a mistake after testing my mod on another computer (the realistic shaders and sky effect are missing without the files I forgot).

let me know when the MOD has been fixed. all we have to do is re-download it from this link? the same one?

I noticed another problem, the snow continues to fall even indoors. if you play a mission then during the cutscene the snow will not appear but once you are free to move the snow appears indoors ( in the first safehouse in the hallway, or a mission for example: the master and the Molotov, or any other mission really ).

this problem is in both versions ( 1.5 and 2.0 ) just to let you know if you are interested.

To valentinbiguine :

Yes you have to do is re-download it from this same link.

The problem come from the "scripthookdonet.asi", when we delete this file there's no snow inside houses.

There is the same problem with anothers graphic mod.

What patch version did you test this under? Mine is crashing after install. 1040. ;) Thanks, Cheers.

ah dam I cant delete my scripthookdotnet.asi because I am using it for a script that keeps all dead bodies on the floor until a predetermined time that I choose. I use for realism, they no longer disappear when you look away so I can stick around witness the carnage I unleashed and then vanish into the night. they will disappear once the predetermined time has run out, I can also choose how many bodies as well in an .ini file.

so basically I am screwed I must have both, so I will have to deal with the snow indoors because your MOD is just too cool.

thank you.

I have the same probleme. I have a lot of mods which are working with scripthookdonet.asi and I use it always. So I have to "bear" this strange bug too...

To 2TimesACharm :

Strange bug because I've tested this mod on the 1040 and 1070 version and it works perfectly...

If you use a ENB mod, or ICE, it could be a incompatibility problem...

hehehehe I know, we cannot do without them right? well anyway thank you. by the way did Rappo ever get back to you about changing your name or nickname? I wrote him and he did not get back to me, then I wrote him a second message asking him to contact you directly because this was originally for you, did he?

No he didn't !!

Yup I'm ENB/Icenhancer through and through, I think it was patch version for the problem I was having. Some inconsistency between 1030 or 1004 and my normal installation...working great now. I'm adapting AUIRB2U to use it.

What mod do you use to have snow on the ground? I installed the mod and it works perfectly but I don't the snow on the ground. It just looks like there is snow falling from the sky but it doesn't appear on the ground.
