Rescue the little green men

By Switch Designs | 24th Mar 2006 at 23:58 GMT in San Andreas | 0 Comments

If someone was to ask me what my most favorite GTA modification was out of everything I have made so far this one modification would be it.
We can all admit that as addicting as the mini arcade game Let's get ready to bumble is to play in GTA San Andreas, it's simply a very non attractive game. The concept of flying a bee around picking flowers off of leafs and trying to avoid spiky vines in my opinion kinda sucks. Who really wants to fly a bee around collecting flowers while playing GTA San Andreas. So I made something that's a bit more fun to look at and alot more fun to play too.
This mod will change your Let's get ready to bumble arcade minigame into a brand new minigame called Rescue The Little Green Men. I've also managed to retexture the model of the arcade machine to match thanks to the help of pdescobar for locating the arcade machines model textures.
In this minigame you get to fly a small ufo that spins through space with one mission in mind, rescuing the little green men before time runs out and they all die with out killing yourself by crashing the rescue ship into all the space junk floating in orbit around the Earth.

SA-MP Media Update

By Adriaan | 22nd Mar 2006 at 04:02 GMT in San Andreas | 0 Comments
SA-MP today released several new screenshots of the upcoming multiplayer mod for GTA: San Andreas. They've also released a brand new video that shows off some of the new features. What I like about this mod is that during some infiltration type missions other players can't see you on the radar, and of course the other way round. This allows you to sneak up to someone and kill him "silently" with your knife and other enemies won't be able to hear you. By the looks of it, they've also created several of their own multiplayer missions.

The new screenshots and video shows that we'll be able to go gambling and enter all sorts of interiors that you could only have entered during certain missions in the single player mode. Head on over to the SA-MP site to view the new screenshots and download the latest video.

Multiplayer Updates

By Chris | 9th Mar 2006 at 21:39 GMT in San Andreas | 0 Comments
Here's an update on the two big multiplayer mods for San Andreas, seeing as there's nothing else interesting to post about, yet.

First of all MTA. They've been working on hard on Race 1.1, and also the long awaited DeathMatch, and while the latter is still being worked on, Race 1.1 is apparently nearly ready for release, the QA team are ironing out the remaning bugs. New features include respawning, improved anti-cheat, and replay last map, amongst other enhancements

Meanwhile over at the SA-MP camp, they're working on porting as many single player features as they can to multiplayer.

They include Pay 'n Sprays, Ammunations, gambling, vending machines, buying food, and car mod shops (Car mod shops will probably make it into the final cake). Some of the aspects are not fully synced, such as the animation of the clerks handing you food, but that's going to be worked on.

You can read the latest news on these on the MTA Blog and SA-MP Blog.
