Myriad Islands (2006-09-09 to present) (4th October 2006)
I started finalising design of illSTA in the Myriad Islands Railway topic back in August. After hours and hours of Messenger conversations and 60 forum messages later, we’ve mostly settled on designs for illSTA. We’ve also settled on the routes for an underground freeway tunnel network like a more refined version of the system in GTA 3.
There are some technical issues to be looked into before we’ll know for sure if this can be made a reality in GTASA:
- Can we turn off the underwater sound and visual effects inside the tunnels?
- Will AI vehicles drive correctly when beneath the water surface?
- Can we clip the edges of the water around the curved ends of illSTA?
If the answer to any of the above is ‘no’ then illSTA and the underground tunnel network won’t be possible in GTA San Andreas. It will have to wait until GTA4, assuming it’s possible in that. And assuming Rockstar Games permit modding of GTA4, which is by no means a certainty.
