I've been working on this for ages, but recently i found some time to resurrect it and get it up to some useable standards.

My own game.. Top down city!

Shitty pic following:

I hope that this appeals the classics gta community, and hopefully gives you something to chew in the future, because while similar in appearace there's simply no comparing gta1/gta2 engines to this.

- Full physics engine - meaning all map block shapes behave correctly as you would expect, no strange behaviors of being stuck on partial blocks, engine also has and supports trucks with trailers.
- No limit on sprite dimensions: delta sets will be probably scrapped in the future, but for now you can have any texture resolution for map tiles, objects, and vehicles, game looks great in high resolution.
- Graphics: map shadows,sprite shadows, modern particle system.
- Client/server Networking - Not gta tick based sync which limits amout of max players and causes severe lag
- Editors: All editors will be released with the game once it's complete (texture packs, maps, vehicle deltas), if anyone wants to try, i will make a pre-release and can get your hands on some tools, but they are already shown how they work in youtube channel.
- No real limit or penalty on amout of different vehicle, object, particle types that can be added (the only limits are on map size, amout of map tiles and amout of live vehicles,actors in active game world).

Still in progress: scripting (integrating a modern javascript scripting engine) and more AI - police forces - once this is done, most of main tasks in engine are complete.

I hope to have some helps from you guys, i'm welcoming if anyone wishes to join the project - map makers, ideas, story for single player.. i need help to make this happen.
And of course I will need testers, a lot of testing, i hope to make some pre-releases where we could also do a massive online test with more than just a few players.

Youtube channel with some videos:

I've been doing sa-mp for past 10 years and top down city intermittently, but now that i quit sa-mp i have time to return back to my classical roots :)
This is happening, the game will be made complete hopefully this or next year.

I know you guys have put a whole ton of work into modding gta2, i'm impressed about what you made when i was afk and am not trying to discourage continued development of your gta2 mods, but i believe that with a more modern classical gta-like engine, we could do even more together without being bound by gta2's 20 year legacy limits.

I love that you resumed working on this. I'm excited to try online tests with low and high ping players.

You need to run an open (or closed, if there is something to work) beta test. Some screenshots and form are not enough to attract the interest of a potential player. For the same feedback in the form of feedback, you will be motivated to work.

I absolutely agree, this is why i'm currently polishing the game to a useable state, cleaning up the mess and making it player-friendly, this not only applies to the game, but also its editors that should enable people to experiment with the beta and see how it's put together and start to mod it.

A lot of things were still missing since i restarted the work on project, for example i only added key controls configuration this week - kinda a essential feature.
I wanted to introduce this project in advance so that word about it can spread - so that when time for open beta comes, i can reach to a small community of people and actually get a fair number of people online in the game at same time :) I know that videos don't give enough about game feel, but i hope that i can get a public beta test out somewhere in june.

What happened to computer?

This game should run fine on ancient computers btw, it's not very graphically intensive and scales effects down well more or less, shaders are only used in a small way, and last time i tested, it still ran ok on intel "extreme" graphics.

i have a 15 year old laptop currently with i945 integrated intel graphics and the drivers for linux dont work like they used to do. i cannot run gta2 with wine anymore. i havent just figured out what is wrong yet but i should be having better parts lying around somewhere anyway
