Swimming will be in all the mods you have mentioned. However, as yet, there is no single-player mod, and it hasn't been discussed as whether there will be down the line.
I know that aready. Its just that there is one planned.
I really can't wait till we have seen all the city's in IV's erra, and someone makes a mod like this for those. It probaly won't happen for a while, or may not happen at all, but it would still be really cool. Espesaly because their very acurate to the real thing.
Happy New Year to You All ! It's been seven years that this project has been going with one year merged with VCO.
Now what I have to show for it depends on your point of view:
- Mapping and modelling; well we are almost there at about 70% completed.
- There are 620+ vehicles in the game from LC to SA but they're a mess and incomplete.
My aims from the start was to be able to push the engine harder with my own exe hacks and see what really could be done and this is where I may move back to.
I would have wanted to have single player and online as I used a basic online client and server however this did not really offer anything more then MTA did at the time, but as a team we have SOL-O?
Single player missions was something I would have wanted with the limits hacked for paths but time and personal life & health issues slowed my progress.
Making a single player game would have meant new missions and SCM scripters both are not my strong areas and where most mods lack without the right kind of support, who scripts in SCM for VC or GTAIII any more?
We have the rage engine now also to think about so if something special is going to happen then this might be the way to go.
A question for the GTAnet community is a simple one and please keep your replies on this board.
Where would you like to see SOL in 5 years time?

Good times are coming up again, i would LOVE to play with people on VC-O again I still have scriptmapping blood in me , it was a fantastic thing from VC-O LIVE editing the map, just take a look from that video that i made 3 years ago
PS: This was the first version, newer versions with the even bigger city is on the forums
EDIT:I fell so sad reading my 2009 posts made me like a stupid kid, lol. Anyway look what i've just found in my MU log , the last version of the map , if anyone still got VC-O, just run a server with VLE (Mex Script) and i think there is a tutorial to how to install the map , HF http://www.megaupload.com/?d=9Z4TTESJ

As we have been steadily approaching our Developer Preview 1 (DP1) release deadline of January 22, 2012, it has become increasingly apparent to us through extensive testing and development that we, unfortunately, are no longer able to abide by the date which we confidently supplied to you in our video just over three weeks ago. We do understand your anticipation for our long-awaited release, which is exactly why we are not able to release it on the 22nd as planned. Since we were not able to gather enough concrete data through our progressively small tests, which would be representative of a mass-test such as the Developer Preview 1, we cannot conclude that this build will be playable on scales of 20-50, or even more players at a time on a server. The following explains our reasoning for this, along with our easily acceptable new release date.
If you were around for our release of Vice City Online RC1 years back, you will probably remember that the first build showed telltale signs of not being tested because it was consistently crashing and there were embarrassing mistakes evident. Not only that, but our master server was also consistently changing hosts, for we had not settled on a firm agreement on which company would be hosting it. Additionally, you will probably also remember that there wasn't a whole lot to do in terms of stock game modes--you had to practically script everything yourself for a long while until our Executive Consultant Mex developed and released his VCO Lua Extensions (VLE) scripting API, which eased the process tremendously and actually made scripting fun.
What kind of product were we releasing back then? It was a primitive product which existed solely for experimentation and which was not intended for public release by any means. We had no idea at the time how it would behave with more than five players on a server. The whole concept of creating a multiplayer GTA was still new and fresh to all of us.
Immediately following the release of our last VCO RC1 patch, we were in the process of working on RC2, which featured improved synchronization, improved stability, and more features (some of which were just prototypes at the time for systems we have implemented in our DP1). Despite these facts, it was still mostly a research project. On a positive note, it greatly expanded our knowledge of the game and gave us a new leaf on what we were able to do with the game. It was also in this period that we developed documents which would prepare ourselves for an entirely new team structure and website. We like to consider this as our transition period. Unfortunately, this is also the time that you--the public--was mostly in the dark with what we were doing. Just to give you an idea of how long this period was, it lasted from the moment after our last patch for VCO RC1 up until about a few months after our merge with the GTA: State of Liberty project.
Soon after, we decided that the RC2/SOLO prototype wrapper/game engine was not going to be released because the cost and efficiency of the performance was too high and there were loose ends in terms of the features and functionality available. Thus, the entire source code was entirely scrapped and re-done, and the methodologies of reverse engineering have been revised and optimized.
Ever since that decision, it's been a scramble to balance optimization with features in a timely manner. We have been working quickly in order to deliver a product of our highest caliber which would give Vice City the best chance it had as a multiplayer game. In a sense, instead of a "rush job," we have actually taken the time to do everything pertaining to this project at a comfortable pace correctly. It was our mistake to hide our progress to the public, which we now see generated much mistrust and disinterest in not only this project, but even worse, in Vice City as a game!
What are we asking you for? We need just three more weeks to maximize everything up to the standards of a Developer Preview (essentially a public beta). Specifically, we are promising to release the final build of DP1 up to and including Februrary 10th, 2012. To further boost insight, we will also be hosting a public beta test up to and including February 5th, 2012. Advance notice will not be supplied if we decide to release sooner than the maximized dates--please make sure to check for any updates. We don't want to fulfill false promises. However, keep in mind that as a reward for your patience, you will, at long last, have proper fun in Vice City!
Also, keep in mind that this is still a Developer Preview. The public beta will give us insight into fixing last-minute crashes directly before the release of the final product. Still, a Developer Preview is essentially still beta software, and has the capability of being expanded and refined. We hope to see you there for both our public beta and our developer preview releases!
Hay what happen here Form ID F153 why was i declined i know i haven't tested it i've been busy and i never got it to work so can't report bugs.I am sorry if you thought i wasn't doing anything.But if you don't want me to no more i am fine with that.
Oh my god i can't believe i lost the latest release of BB Island because of Megaupload, so sad
EDIT: For people who dont understand
VC-O was more a community multiplayer then a Real VC Multiplayer because it was very low rate of players and servers and many of them are from people who plays it for many time , i was a map modder ,i have made many famous maps for VC-O , as i dont play VC-O anymore i decided to upload my last version of my famous map called BB Island/VC Land , and then the time passed and MegaUpload gets closed. and i lost ALL the map because i dont have any backup of it, shame.
You forgot to answer my question here why was i kicked from beta testing as i said on my post.
Please don't use this thread for questions like that. You can e-mail or PM any one of the project's executive consultants. This thread should be reserved for mod news and updates, and questions surrounding those.
Earlier today at 6:00 PM GMT, we hosted our first instance of a release of Vice City Online since 2009 in the form of a public beta for Developer Preview 1. However, as those who played on this build soon realized, the public beta was nothing short of a disaster.
Certainly we thought that a server of 3, or even 2, people was stable on gamemodes which we’ve been testing and developing for weeks, but not even that worked. The servers were, for some unknown reason, consistently crashing. Deaths, amongst other events were causing crashes that never arose in our tests before the release.
We verified that the build was correct in the installer, and that the server hosts were using the correct builds. Something’s seriously wrong here that we have yet to discover.
So how do we feel about this? Well, for starters, we openly accept any criticisms towards the appalling and terrible quality of the unplayable beta test. We thought that people would have fun today after hard work developing a plethora of features and brand new synchronization. Now, the fun that we hoped for has turned into fun for people to defame us as a modification, as if we were the laughing stock of the century.
We also understand how long you’ve all been waiting for a crappy quality public beta. It’s really pathetic when you put it like that. The public beta turnout was severely lower than we had expected, which in hindsight was for the best, but not the turnout we’d hope to see at future events.
What was the purpose of the public beta? It was certainly not to publicly humiliate us and lose your complete trust. But that’s how it appeared to have manifested itself. That is extremely regrettable.
We’re not going to apologize or make excuses for this, for we had plenty of time to get things right for you. Apologizing would just dust this incident under the rug. We’re also not going to run away from this as if it never happened--we’re fully responsible for the turnout and now we must deal with the consequences of your loss in faith of us. Just don’t forget that one person (opposed to a team of software developers) is managing tens of thousands of lines of code on a daily basis and that we historically have the smallest team out of all GTA multiplayer modifications.
For those wondering why the test ended prematurely, it was out of the fact that it was unplayable and we wanted to save ourselves further embarrassment. If you’re able to contact team members with a server build (i.e. Ricoow and Yoshifirebird), you’re more than welcome to continue testing on your own time.
So, what’s next? Well, that all depends on how badly the public wants us to fix our embarrassing builds and how badly the public wants to see us progress further. If everyone’s lost complete faith in us, we will move onto something else, leaving VC behind. However, if there’s still hope for us to continue developing VC-O, we will continue to develop a quality build which is representative of our tests within the team, only with a much larger number of players in mind.
What about February 10th? There is virtually no way to fix everything in less than 5 days, given that we don’t have enough people now to test and we’re short an executive consultant (Mex is now inactive due to personal reasons). If the test went how we planned it to (a limited amount of replicable crashes and general bugs to be fixed), Februrary 10th would be green-lit.
We make no further promises for anything, no matter how certain we think we are, as we can now see point-blank that it just leads to false hope and embarrassment. VC-O RC1 led to embarrassment with Patch 2, which broke weapon sync, and now this. We can’t continue this way. We’re obviously doing something wrong, which myself and DECEiFER have just heavily disputed. We have devised several plans of action which we will continue to analyze until we reach a solid agreement, and act on those actions as soon as possible.
Thank you for your time today and we’re sorry if we wasted an hour of it for you. We’re just asking for your continued trust in our ability to work with VC (but you can laugh at us on the side if you want to--but great things are to come and we will gladly prove wrong any of your doubts).
We will have more information concerning changes and future plans in the coming days / weeks. Please do not badger us, as there are a lot of issues to be worked out within our limited availabilities.
State Of Liberty and VC-0 will be two projects once again.
There have been many issues that built up to this for Regex, and I received an email from him a couple of days ago with a decision not to work with Me, and SOL any longer.
QUOTE (In an Email)
after careful discussion, we came to the agreement that we should spin-out from our merge with SOL. I believe it is for the best that we become two separate teams and projects again as you will be able to run your operation however you see fit without having to run changes by us and vice-versa
Not all teams get on and there was not the support from others like we all had hoped for and maybe even expected.
Where do we go from here? Well:
GTASOL will become a community project for GTAforums and only GTAforums.
Coding, Game Hacks and Models are open to anyone to use in their own projects however give credit where credit is due.
An Open Door policy will be in place where people can come and join in, Learn, Create and Mod without commitment to being on a team.
I will offer leadership like in any project, however the mod files and everything else within GTA: State Of Liberty will become propriety of GTAForums except content owned by Rockstar Games and Take 2.
More to come soon.
This topic can be closed so we can move onto the next chapter..
