This Week in Mods

GTA: San Andreas - Modifications | @ 10:22 PM MDT | By rappo
The modification community is up and about with the release of the San Andreas PC version release. With the rush of new mods coming out everyday, daily news posts seemed like a bit too much, so, I decided to present "This Week in Mods," where all the mods posted in the week will be listed and briefly covered. This is good for those of you that don't regularly browse our File Archive! Here's what was released since June 7th:

Tools:
Handling Editor - easily edit all aspects of the handling.cfg file.
Pedstats Editor - easily edit all aspects of the pedstats.dat file.
GarageEdit - place any car in any garage in Los Santos.
Mission Builder - edit and compile the main.scm file.
Place Manager - allows you to view, save, and teleport to any coordinate in San Andreas.
Playlister - allows you to create playlists for your User Tracks instead of copying music files.
Ultimate Editor - you heard right, ULTIMATE!
TimeSync Tool - play in real time.

Miscellaneous:
10x Draw Distance - see further than you should!
Atmosphere Pack - comes with three sky colors.
Blue Skies - just like the blue skies of beautiful Vice City.
Gang War Mod - gangs automatically start beating each other up.
Hitman Level for All Weapons - pretty self-explanatory.
New Wheels - pimp out your ride.
No Cash for Clothes - don't pay for clothes anymore!
Stats Plus - EVERYTHING in San Andreas is free, plus boosted stats.
The Chaos Mod - all peds fight with each other.
The Slow Peds Mod - need I say more?

Script Mods:
100% Save Game - everything is complete.
San Andreas Opened Up - all the cities are open from the start of the game.
Hot Coffee Mod - let's just say, this one's not for the kids!

Vehicle Mods:
Enhanced Tire Traction - every surface feels like the pavement.
Transfender Fix - allows you to trick out almost every car with NOS.
Transfender Overhaul - new items for sale.

Weapon Mods:
Double Wield All Weapons - this is so sweet!
Skateboard - replaces the shovel and allows you to beat people with a skateboard. FUN!

Well, that's all for this week. Check back next Sunday for another episode of This Week in Mods. If you can't wait until then, just keep checking out our File Archive for daily updates!

Sigh, the only 2 mods I liked didn't work

10x Draw distance didn't work, it made the DD SHORTER

And the time Sync mod, kept changing the weather every few seconds

Test before you upload ftw

The author made a note (in the readme was it?) that the 10x draw distance mod can be a bit buggy. Links and spelling errors were fixed. Also, the New Wheels image.

Your website has been added to all three of your mods. I didn't know about it (wasn't in the ReadMe). And, sorry, I thought I did email you, but it turns out it was the other of the Stats Plus Mod =/

HEY!!

First, to use Playlister (even knowing it'll not do anything!)

1. Extract it to "GTA San Andreas User Files", at My Documents.
2. Drag & Drop any m3u playlist to the exe file, then press return to exit.

It SHOULD work, but as it creates filenames incompatible with the game (ex: C:\Program Files instead of C:\Progra~1), station doesn't play anything!

If anyone can contact the creator of this utility, please let him know about this...

The 100% savegame mod doesn't do much. It opens up the city and gives you a Rhino and Hydra near CJ's house but that's it. None of the missions are complete. Nothing is unlocked. Can't use TransFender, Loco Low Co., etc., can't fly (easily), no jetpack, nothing you got from completing missions.
