Thumbs up Make San Andreas pretty again: Sun, grass and drawdistance mods

It's always bugged me that SA-MP doesn't have grass, and that the sun is missing. I found some CLEO scripts that add these features back, and it makes the game look at lot better! I also used a mod to vastly increase the game draw distance and remove the blue wall that surrounds the player and only lets you see about 1 mile.









Grass: https://gamemodding.com/en/gta-san-a...amp-grass.html
Draw distance: https://www.gtainside.com/en/sanandr...-project-2dfx/ (download and replace relevant files with http://www.mikescnr.com/stuff/Mike/I...itAdjuster.rar after).
Sun: https://gamemodding.com/en/gta-san-a...e-v-sa-mp.html

Also just downloaded a mod to re-add motion blur: https://www.gtagarage.com/mods/show.php?id=26881



I've always been against using mods that make the game look different that the original, so all these mods just enable things that SA-MP cuts out.

You'll need CLEO and an ASI loader:

https://www.gtagarage.com/mods/show.php?id=21709

I also recommend getting Silent's Patch as it fixes many issues with the game. Take a look at the topic for details: https://gtaforums.com/topic/669045-silentpatch/

Do you guys agree this makes the game look a lot better? Are you going to get these mods? Are there any mods you guys recommend? I might look at getting a mod that changes the radar next. Post any recommendations.

Thanks for sharing, gonna try these out!

Additionally, I use ps2shads.asi (https://gtaforums.com/topic/751552-r...ality-setting/). If you were to use higher visual fx quality setting, imo the shadows are ugly. The shadows of low visual fx quality looks much better.

Definitely better now. I had used that same draw distance enhancer time ago and now cannot manage to make it work j.j
