Onepiece's HD GTA III Vehicles

Grand Theft Auto III - Modifications | @ 08:25 PM MDT | By Ash_735

With the 10th Anniversary of Grand Theft Auto III fast approaching, many people are going to give the old game a quick run through for old times sake, especially those new players who recently purchased the Mac version. So, after four long years Onepiece has finally finished his goal of recreating EVERY Vehicle from Grand Theft Auto III in HD (along with a few bonus vehicles). Here is a statement by the man himself:
After nearly 4 years, countless hours of work, and many sleep deprived nights may I present to you my GTA3 HD vehicle pack. Every vehicle from the past 2 packs remastered plus 18 previously unreleased vehicles as well as HD weapons, icons, effects, and my HD Claude model make up the Tri-Pack.

I never started this mod intending to remake every III car, I only planned to make a few select favorites at first, but before I knew it I was redoing every damn car, haha. This mod has at many times been an exercise in self motivation as well as labour of love, but I think the final product speaks for itself. Nit pickers many times irritated me but in the end you guys forced the standard higher, and the pack looks better as a result, so thanks guys

Many ideas and suggestions from you guys have been incorporated into the final product which has really made these cars a product of GTAF. Cheers to Autodesk for their fantastic tools, Kam for his max scripts, SteveM, REspawn, and any other tool maker whose work has helped me to complete this project.

Making this mod has taught me more than any university course could have about 3D/2D art, goals, and self motivation (and it didnt cost me a cent.) So that's it guys, I'm done with cars, for now. I plan on converting the pack to IV once a stable script is written for 3dsmax, but I have no current plans for creating any more scratch cars. Until then, I'll let other people convert them through zmodeler as they like, I'll get links up on the first page for every IV conversion I have soon. Please don't PM me requesting me to make a HD car for you. Its been unreal, thank you all

Dan Houser talks GTA III on IGN

Grand Theft Auto III - General News | @ 12:53 AM MDT | By victim
The 10th year anniversary celebrations of Grand Theft Auto III are blowing up right now. IGN have continued the fun with an interview with one of the ever-so-illusive masterminds of the series.

Insight into the making of a game that we all love is always interesting and this article makes for a pretty good read.

On making the game 3D

In the case of GTA III, the challenge was making a 3D story, making the sound sound like it's in 3D, making the radios feel like they're in a 3D world. What we've always tried to do is make the games feel totally consistent across the whole experience.

On 9/11 and it's affect on the game

The only other thing that changed that not really many people in the U.S are aware of, is the box. So there was an old box that you can still see online because it was the packaging in Europe. It was the same drawing style but done like an old movie poster with a blown up bridge and some police firing in the air and some helicopters and a bunch of the characters are different sizes. We thought, "that's a bit heavy, actually, it doesn't really gel." And so the artist came up with a couple things, and he just came up with a new one overnight. What's become the very staple of our marketing and presentation was done in an evening as a response to 9/11.

Check out the full article at IGN. Also, be sure to check out prominent industry members recapping their memories of GTA III here.

In honor of Grand Theft Auto III's 10 year anniversary weekend, join us tomorrow Friday October 21st for a special Grand Theft Auto IV: Complete Edition Social Club multiplayer event on PSN, the latest event in the fall series calendar.

To commemorate the occasion, we've invited some of our most old school GTA fansite luminaries to join us and play as special guests - folks that were on the scene back in the early 2000s when Grand Theft Auto III first released or very soon thereafter. While we Rockstars will be playing (and live streaming) on PSN, some of them will be on Xbox LIVE, so feel free to join in on either platform:

G-WizZ from GTAwh.com - Xbox LIVE Gamertag gtawh
adamcs from GTANet.com - Xbox LIVE Gamertag adamcsx
Zidane from GTAGaming.com - PSN ID CaseyTheVA
