Recommended Posts

Welcome all , well that is my first post in MTA forum , i was a fan of MTA VC, after these dead years , do you think it will return again or we have to be under VC:MP?

VCMP version now is 0.4 is being good , but have bad sync system if you wanted to compare it with any multiplayer mod, they use RakNet. Like SAMP.

So that topic is for :

  • MTA III/VC  will return again?
  • Can MTA III/VC return again with another team of hobbyists?
  • Idea of Source Code has been discussed before alot of times. and the answer was to make another project, so that will be the last answer to the concept of releasing the source code of MTA III/VC?
  • if MTA III/VC will return again so it will be written from scratch?
  • MTA III/VC stills in people hearts in minds?

and i hope that we have good discussion here and not to be ignored :D

We gave the source code to GTA3MTA 0.5 and MTA:VC 0.5 to a third party group quiiiiiite a while ago, so they are the ones interested in continuing the development for these mods. You can find some information about them here:

and maybe you can find some development builds on their website: http://www.projectredivivus.com/

 

As for doing an actual proper reboot for those mods from our side, you have to keep in mind a bunch of things:

  • age of these games and potential userbase for multiplayer mods for them
    • GTA3 is 15 years old and VC is 14 years old
    • both games are no longer supported by original developers and have some compatibility problems on newer PCs
    • newer titles exist which are supported and do contain multiplayer components out of the box
  • popularity of MTA:SA and our current dev manpower capabilities
    • we are quite understaffed at this point so taking on more projects is simply impossible for us - our current mod would suffer because of that, and we could not provide the proper level of quality for other projects either
  • MTA:SA source code is almost completely freely available to anyone to view and modify
    • this means that anyone can try to adapt it for GTA3 and VC, which should be possible to do - we would surely welcome that and maybe provide some minor assistance for it (eg. work on the closed-source parts of the mod to make it work)

Because of that, it is unlikely that you will see a new official GTA3MTA/MTAVC feature/content release from us in the future (unless, like I have mentioned above, someone tries to adapt MTA:SA to older games - unfortunately there were no signs of that happening so far).
