-=Detailed Map and Radar Mod=-

This mod will substitute GTA:San Andreas'map and the radar by the map
made by Ian Albert(http://www.ianalbert.com),which shows San Andreas detailed,
like a satellite picture.


Easy way
#Download and install San Andreas Mod Installer 1.1(http://www.sanandreasmodinstaller.com)
and run the SAMI script in this pack.

Hard way
#Substitute the file fronten2.txd(GTA San Andreas\models\fronten2.txd) by the
one in this package.
#Using IMGTool 2.0(you can find it at http://www.gtagarage.com),open the file
gta3.img(GTA San Andreas\models\gta3.img),find some files called radar00.txd,
radar01.txd,radar02.txd...radar143.txd(they are 144 files),select and delete
them.Then add(Ctrl+A) the radar files in this package and rebuild the
archive(Commands>Rebuild archive).

#I don't know why,but I couldn't add all the radar textures at the same time
in the gta3.img file.So,if this happen with you,you will have to add the
textures one per one.

Mod works great, but there were some problems.

First, when I installed it, I used San Andreas Mod Installer v.1.1, but when I started San Andreas afterward and went to the main map view I saw that several of the “tiles” were out of place. Some appeared to be duplicated, especially up by the San Fierro docks, and over Mount Chilidad.

To fix the problem I eventually discovered that I had to first use IMG Tool 2.0 to delete all of the original radar txd files from GTA3.IMG, save GTA3.IMG without those files (and without starting San Andreas during that time), then use San Andreas Mod Installer v.1.1 to install the new radar txd files, and then finally use IMG Tool 2.0 once again to rebuild the archive.

I suspect that adding commands like this to the Mod Installer script would make it work also.

As far as functionality goes the map is much better than the original, but I noticed that the tunnels are not shown. This is particularly noticeable for the long tunnel up by San Fierro, which leads from the northern coastal road down into the area of Beacon Hill and Flint Range. Maybe a future update could address this?

Two Thumbs Up! cool

No, there is no rada144.txd but there is a radar00.txd so it counts as one so 143 + radar00.txd =144 i think... simple math...

It worked fine for me with SAMI. I think I might actually know who made this compatible with SAMI. Anyway, excellent job. Friggen sweet.
