The Essential Car Pack (under 200mb) - Another car pack... but this is 'lightweight'

Yes, i'm planning to release another car pack for GTA4, but my intention is to make it under 200 mb.

The humble purpose is to HELP with the 'disappear textures' problem when using ikt's TRAFFIC LOAD (The best taxi bug fix currently out there).
So, it's a pack thought for low/mid-end pc's and is a compiling of the best (quality/filesize) 'balanced' cars. Just about 50 cars replaced, and all are low/mid poly filesize. (2 mb WFT or less, the majority of them, just a few a little over 3 mb.). If your system's got memory problems when using some mods simultaneosly, IMHO this small car pack could help better than if you got all cars replaced. I'm just looking for equilibrium, not 'maximun quality'. And maybe your system could take a breath if it can load in memory some default cars sometimes.

I only replaced default cars with models that respect the nature of the game, and of course, 'every 4-door is replaced by a 4-door' and things like that. I respected Reality, Variety and Gameplay. And a handling that resembles (but easy to control) the real nature of each car and in the relationship between them all. (I mean i don't want i.e. a VW faster than a Ferrari)

The provissional list and authors:

Admiral -Ford Taurus SHO (NIK161RUS)
Banshee -Dodge Viper SRT/10 (Deadyshka)

Comet -Porsche 911 GT2 (smokey8808)
Coquette -Lamborghini Murciélago (Stiopa, Jake, Jalienlu)
DF-8 -Mitsubishi Lancer Evo X (Lincoln)
Emperor -Cadillac Fleetwood Brougham (klarnetist, METALman)
Feltzer -Mercedes-Benz SL 65 AMG (Ross)
Feroci -Lexus IS F (N.I.K.E.)
FBI Buffalo -Dodge Charger SRT/8 FBI (Lex91)
Fortune -Chevrolet Camaro SS '02 (Oneill22)
Habanero -Volkswagen Touareg R50 (METALman)
Huntley -Range Rover Sport (Van2zzz, GTAMAN, Denus, The_Ripper)
Infernus -Ferrari Enzo (SdkDdt)
Ingot -Volvo 850 Turbo (Mad EA, Irbis)
Intruder -Audi A8 L (Stiopa, DOMEHYC)
Landstalker -Chevrolet Suburban Z71 (nik287, Irbis)

Merit -Ford Crown Victoria '03 (Schaefft, Bolleck)
Oracle -BMW 760 iL (KeDen, Stiopa)
Peyote -Plymouth Belvedere (StratumX, Irbis)
Pinnacle -Buick Roadmaster (Schaefft, Bolleck)

Turismo -Ferrari 458 Italia (smokey8808)
Uranus -Ford Mustang SVT Cobra '93 (smokey8808)
Vigero -Chevrolet Camaro SS '69 (Stiopa)
Vincent -Honda Accord (9lxa, Mast)
Voodoo -Chevrolet Impala '59 (nik287, Irbis)
Washington -Cadillac DTS (Carface)
Willard -Oldsmobile Cutlass Ciera (Allcash, Malemute)

(Also handling and textures changed for other default cars)

Most authors gave me permission quickly. But i'm waiting for an answer from a few of them.
Couldn't find direction of Crime, Carface and N.I.K.E., if you wanna help with this, send me a PM.
(If an author doesn't provide any contact info, what should i do?)

Suggestions, advices or constructive feedback below, plz

Greetings

I hope this pack is good for something.

You can use the video editor in gta IV itself, it's perfectly fine just keep in mind that when there's actually not much happening the clips may only capture 10secs each

Don't expect a piece of art.

Don't worry it's a good video, nice cars too. Looks very urban if you know what I mean, the vehicles are hard to seperate from the default ones inbetween the custom ones, they don't stand out to much like some car packs that have mostly flashy sportcars.

Hi guys, i've released a 2.0 version of my pack with more cars: (225mb + 25mb)
http://www.gta4-mods.com/vehicles/th...ack-v20-f14175

Almost every civilian car replaced + a mini added pack of 7 exotic cars.
I think you can try them even separately. Or even try the v1.0 with the added pack of 2.0.
I've tried to respect performance, as i did in 1.0


Greetings & thx for all the positive feedback.

Once again a nice selection of cars, you've found the right balance between sportscars and normal vehicles if I look at your screens.

Might try this one out later, I´ve tried some car packs lately and they, along with an anti-taxi bug, slow my game down so much that I'd rather play default. This pack is not too big so maybe that helps, although I'm doubtfull wether the trafficload will behave normally. I've had some problems with that one , trafficcontrolsystem is somewhat easier on performance

For all your effort you'll get a 10 from me anyhow

Nice work! It's good to see a pack made with optimisation and performance in mind. I tend to find a lot of mods use oversized textures or have wasteful oversights like a HUD icon with mipmaps, but it certainly saves a lot of bother when someone has already sorted out what's well-made from what isn't, like you have.

Hi guys. Sorry for bumping my own topic.
I'm gonna release police & taxi cars (and other things) to include them in my previous packs, as an upgrade. Many people were asking me for that.
I think i got a good balance between realism/performance. Give it a try.

Thanks again for all your positive feedback.
