Grand Tani Islands

We haven't posted much about any of the total conversion mods that are in development for San Andreas at the moment. I thought I'd mention this one since the GTA scene is rather dead at the moment.

The 20 strong Dutch team behind Grand Tani Islands have released a video of what they've got in the game so far. And I must say it's quite impressive compared to some other TC's such as GTALVS which haven't got very much done yet, but these guys have.

Download the trailer from their website and tell us what you think. They are expecting the first beta version to be released some time during November.

Wilbur Krinkle from The Netherlands emailed me a couple of days ago, he has compiled a gallery of photos comparing sights in San Andreas with what's seen in real-life. Interesting viewing if you haven't had the chance to see these places up close before.
Wilbur writes:

I've put together 3 picture gallery's comparing Los Santos, San Fierro and Las Venturas with their real-life counterparts Los Angelos, San Fransisco and Las Vegas. The gallery's provide a very good insight in the detailing Rockstar has put into San Andreas.
