My years of moding was accompanied with lot of time on forums about moding. From the first day when I started learning I seen what is missing in this community and noticed it. At the beginning it was just missing tutorials. I had to watch tutorials in different languages with autogenerated English titles which was many times of course generated wrong and English is not my native language, so it was many times not easy.
But from sense of content the keyword that was most of times repeating was exactly the one I was looking for too. Real Life. I was one of you from my start. Just starting moder who want his game look like real life not only in sense of graphics. Why I mentioned this now? Just to explain you, that I’m checking what are others looking and who is looking for the same content as me.
So I understand some of you may want just real ‘basics’ but some of you may want all details as I want. From this reason we decided to let you choose. You can get basement pack and don’t care anymore or you can keep supporting us and receive more and more details done. That is reason why there is separate tier for updates and separate tier for basement pack. From the same reason as well is there option to get only LA Revo 2.0 without all other content. You may want just architecture and terrain and try to do own traffic and combine more mods from others.
But after years of moding we know how hard is combining lot of the mods in final stage for the game stability. All small mistakes that are ignored by system at the start, just pop-up at certain point and start causing big problems. From this reason I still had to learn more and more sections of moding and now, with help of some great moders we are slowly making all great ideas by our own while we keep them all compatible for best game stability.
But that’s more about update content so back to basement pack content. In basement pack you’ll get simply basics of most noticeable parts. That means architecture. No every single building but the ones that are mostly noticeable all around you while playing. We edited both, textures as well as models of these buildings plus added some main California buildings that we feel could be not missing on the map. For example Deloitte building. All buildings and signs are from real life California brought and transformed thru different technology.
You’ll get as well terrain and nature rework. Again not all. This time it’s around 70% of terrain reworked plus the vegetations. All with textures not just based on real life, but fully real life textures.
Third part is traffic. Real California based full traffic with real brands and models. Most of the models are fully working models with all basic game features like correct collision, openable doors or breakable glass. Same as the architecture, it’s not randomly taken models but based on real California traffic. In this case realism was accomplished thanks to hours of videos from California places walkthroughs, dealership sales reports or forums. I would like to as well mention that while it’s developed for single player gameplay, it’s mostly compatible with story line missions!
Content in this basement pack could be updated, but there would be no more added content in future for this pack. This is basement pack that can be for some of you enough as I mentioned before. For these who are looking for full realism as we are, we’ll be making updates in lower tiers. This updates will be about lot more than just architecture and vehicles, but more about updates you can find every month on our Discord channel and you can get access to these news by lowest ‘Copper’ tier.
