Death Race IV - DIrect route/point to point mode

Today i put a theory in practice, make AI drivers drive direct to a position ahead his car until reach next checkpoint, why? Because in custom maps the AI drivers may not understand how to reach the next checkpoint, and in this case we need to make them ignore the normal behavior and try to go direct to the checkpoint. The result is very cool and fits the need. Also added a method that will make possible, in theory, AI drivers perform any loop, check the video to see what happens.

IronMan IV - New target HUD system in upcoming update

I'm making a small update for IronMan IV script that will fix some issues with frozen objects, will improve a little the performance and will add new target HUD system with images as HUD instead of coronas and checkpoints :P


The actual version of this script creates all objects and saved cars when script starts, this is my "old style" of object creation that i abandoned in my recent scripts because it causes frozen objects/cars bug and cause too much load on script startup.

The target HUD is just one more need that is possible now that i know how to easily convert the 3D position to 2D screen position thanks to this forum post :)

Any suggestions for the update you can make in my facebook page in the comments of this post.

Actual changes:

Safe house at Stark Tower removed because it cause issues when player dies. Can be enabled on .ini file.
Objects for the Stark Tower like doors, lights and cars will be created when you get close to the tower.
Objects used as darts or rockets will be created when you equip the armor for first time.
Target HUD system improved with images and 3D pos. to 2D screen pos. conversion. This makes target system more customizable because user can change the images used :)

*** Edit - Update released: Check it here ***

List of changes on v2.2:

Removed auto creation of objects at script startup: This will reduce chances of frozen objects/cars
Improved some methods to reduce lag
Removed blip icon from cops (now it's map only)
Improved wanted level increase method
Added method to scare peds around attack area
Improved target HUD (Inspired by first movie)
Added indicator for enemy rockets
Improved melee attacks, now it smash cars on impact
Improved sounds in lamp pole attack
Improved sound player, now problems with "Jarvis" audio in Windows XP should end, i hope
and maybe something else.

Death Race IV

This script basically brings to GTA IV some features inspired by the movie Death Race (2008). This project has been started months ago but was paused due to the need to create custom objects to use.


Download

v1.2 Changes:

Changed the way races start, reducing chance to error when creating drivers or cars
Fixed exception treatment that was causing player to b invisible
Added option to set guns on/off for each race
Added feature to speed up AI drivers speed
Changed to AI drivers steering helper method
Added feature to make AI drivers drive direct to checkpoint, used in custom maps
Improved race editor behavior and visual
Added option to duplicate checkpoint, useful when we need to add checkpoint between two others
Added feature that will try to help AI drivers perform loops
and other things that i can't remember now.

If you have Iron Man IV installed its interesting update your version to the last one (v2.2) to reduce chances of frozen objects issue.

OIV Generator for vehicles - OpenIV Package Generator

This tool was developed to make easy generate .oiv files to use with OpenIV Package Installer for easy setup of modded vehicles.


Download full version: here (slow connections mirror)
Download application only (requires extra steps after download): here

Run the tool with administrator rights or the process may fail.

You need .NET Framework 4.5 installed :)

v1.0.0.2:

Fixed issues related to controls not working in previous version

v1.0.0.1:

Removed "delete lines" commands because in last version of OpenIV this was causing wrong line deletion on handling.dat

***
if you want share or make videos of this tool, please use the following link as reference in description:

http://gtaxscripting.blogspot.com/2014/03/oiv-generator-for-vehicles-openiv.html
http://openiv.com

Thanks
***

This is what the tool does:

Creates the assembly.xml file with all commands required to replace/insert the new lines and models
Creates the content folder with modded and backup files
Creates a restore option to make user able to restore GTA IV default car model and handling
Generates the .oiv file compressing the files generated in previous steps.

You can download the Full version that goes with the backup database or download the application only and generate your own backup database extracting models from your GTA IV. I recommend first option because it's easier, just extract to an folder and use.

Case you want create your own backup database  this is the structure needed:

In the application (CarOIVGenerator.exe) folder:

You need a folder called "backup source"

Inside "backup source" you need:

  • Folder "main" that will have the handling.dat, vehicles.ide, carcols.dat and all vehicles from "pc\models\cdimages\vehicles.img"
  • Folder "tbogt" that will have the handling.dat, vehicles.ide, carcols.dat and all vehicles from "tbogt\pc\models\cdimages\vehicles.img"
  • Folder "tlad" that will have the handling.dat, vehicles.ide, carcols.dat and all vehicles from "tlad\pc\models\cdimages\vehicles.img"

Know Issues

Because of OpenIV limitations i can't make sure that extra handling lines (required by helicopters, planes, boats, etc., they start with %, !, $, etc) will be properly replaced by the new ones, what i do is try to delete and, in any case, insert in the end of the helicopters section, this way game will read this info and overwrite the info that was read before, i tested in EFLC, GTA IV patch 1.0.4.0 and patch 1.0.7.0 and seems to work fine, game always considered last info as the "official" :)

If you don't run the application as administrator it don't will be able to create some files and will indicate error in the process.

If you don't have .NET Framework 4.5 installed the application may crash because the Zip method need that framework, the final user (that will use the .oiv file) don't need the 4.5 framework.

Flappy IV - Frustrating script mod

This mod was requested by Quechus13, the name was suggested by Rick Jason Villaflor and fits perfect the mod, the initial idea was make possible player "flap" around the city avoiding collisions, then i implemented the idea of use pedestrians to obtain points, the idea is "flap" and try to hit pedestrians, if you hit anything else you fall.

The mod has three game modes each one with his own score:

One chance - Hit anything that is not a pedestrian and you lose
Time limit - Hit pedestrians to increase your time left, if you fall you can try again without reset score
Free mode - Only death stops you :)


Download: here (mirrormirror)

Share your videos with your gameplay and high scores using hashtag #FlappyIV, you also can share they here

Some details

  • If you hit a cop you earn one more point
  • If you hit pedestrians in sequence without press "flap" button you earn one more point
  • Hitting pedestrians close to cops will increase your wanted level
  • Hitting more than two cops will make them come with RPG after you
  • In free mode if you reach score 25 pedestrians will try to do evade dives when you get close
  • In free mode if you reach score 75 pedestrians will use RPG against you and do evasive dives ^^
