Which mods best?
I'm new to GTA IV, so I have a few questions. I hope that somebody can help me. Please excuse my bad english, I'm german. ;)
1. There are 2 add ons I think, but how are the exactly installing steps? GTA IV --> Patch --> Add ons --> Mods? If I want first play the GTA IV main game (and finally the add ons) is it already possible to install the add ons?
By the way, I only have to install the newest patch, right?
2. Is Icenhancer 2.1 or ENB graphic mod better? Icenhancer is configurable, I think, what are the best settings, so that it looks most naturally? I've read that the sunset and night is bad with Icenhancer.
Works Icenhancer also with the newest Patch?
3. Which one is the best blood mod? And is there a mod which brings the original names for cars, municipalities etc. (so that everything has original names)?
4. Are there any other good mods for graphic or other things or is there a mod pack where all good mods are inside? car mods seems to be very important, but there are soo many more mods.
What addons are you talking about? Tbogt and Tlad? They are installed in a seperate folder so you can choose to play those or the main game.
as for the best blood mod: http://www.gta4-mods.com/misc/exagge...ood-v116-f2318
Icenhancer is certainly recommendable, don't have any experience with 2.0 but I use 1.25 that has a beta version for the latest patch. Which works great, haven't seen a better graphics mod
Now for installing mods I'm just going to quote myself again
Thank you Killerfist.
Yes I mean Tbogt and Tlad, but now it's clear.
What's the difference between patch 18.104.22.168 and 22.214.171.124?
Is not the newest Icenhancer 2.1 the best one, meaning better denn 1.25?
Is there also a mod for better KI and real names for real life counterparts? And is there a mod package with all good mods inside it?
Better KI? No there isn't a package of 'good' mods .
I found this when googling for real car names, never used it so I can't tell you if it works or not:
The link still works
The blood mod from the link I gave you is pretty bloody yes. But it's not that unrealstic. The excessive blood you see on the screenshots is only when you keep shooting a corpse. If you just shoot someone once it'll be a pool of blood and a blood stain on the spot where you shot him.
As for the difference between patches, a few minor things were changed:
I don't know about the newest icenhancer, never tried it . I'd say try a few different ones out to see which one you like best. Just make sure you have a backup that you can place back every time you want to uninstall one.
I mean a mod for better artificial intelligence. ;) Artificial Intelligence means KI in german.
Is there also a mod which replaces the existing cars with the same cars but which better textures? Ich mean not new cars, only better textures for the already existing cars.
I've read that with 126.96.36.199 the Icenhancer mod looks better.
I have seen that there are several editions of the icenhancer. Which one is best? I'm looking for one where the daylight is not so flashy and there should be good sunset and sunrise light (orange like in unmodified GTA).
I can only speak for my own personal experience, and I'm a big fan of icehancer 1.25:
Still the second most downloaded graphics mod, if you'd like to see some screens I've got plenty:
The only bug is the red-sky bug you'll find with most graphics mod, it's when you look in certain angles the sky turns red. I'm not really bothered by it since the beauty of the mod makes up for that bug
As for AI, there are some scripts around like Arrest warrant:
I use it myself, it makes the cop react to you more. If you drive above the speedlimit, drive the wrong way, hit other cars etc they will pull you over.
You also stay wanted a while after you've lost the police (if they've identified you or your car)
Thanks. Does Icenhancer 1.25 also have such a ugly sunset and sunrise? I'm searching for one with a beatiful sunrise and sunset (and not too bright at daylight), but I didnt find any.
I've only used Icenhancer 1.25 and don't think it has any ugly features (except for the red-sky bug) but I'd suggest browsing through the site to look at the various ENB's and just check the pictures to see if it's what you want. Some people say icenhancer 1.25 is to bright so I'm no sure if you'd like it
if you sort on most downloaded most of the popular enb's will show up at the first page
There's a fix for the red sky bug.
Is not the newest version always the best? Icenhancer 2.1 should have lot of improvments. There is also a configuration tool, do you knwo if I can also adjust the sunset color and the daylight brightness?
By the way, what's a timecycle mod?
