What about KITT and KARR for GTA San Andreas?

Post by ShawnBaxe » Wed Aug 10, 2005 12:26 pm

I've recently started playin' GTA San Andreas - that game is awesome - in some ways it's much better than Vice City (the graphics etc.), but I am missing KITT/KARR - driving them would be the ultimate event :D

I know there was a thread about the Vice City mod and that KITT for San Andreas is in progress as far as I remember, so the question is: when will it be available? I tried to convert KITT from Vice City, but I simply failed (I must have been nuts trying that *lol*).

Imagine...a town 4 times as large as Vice City - an empty street in the evening and then - ruuuuushhhh - a black Trans Am breaks the silence :D
C'mon modelers - give us somethin' to play with :D

Thanks in advance :wink:

I fully support the idea man but it all comes down to somebody willing to create a scratch made model(or use a current model) and importing to SA

I made it...but I need the model's creators permission first

Damn...took me a lot of work to do that but I managed to convert KnightFan's ViceCity KITT to San Andreas!!! :D

I've also converted KARR (with silver stripe and without). The wheels were too big when I first tested the models, but tweaking the vehicels.ide a bit fixed that. Here are 2 screenshots of KARR (without silver stripe) in San Andreas:

The headlights need to be fixed (there's only one visible when it's dark) and the taillights are a bit dark, but it's just a simple conversion - KnightFan is working on a new mesh afaik (read it on his website today).

I cannot distribute the converted models unless I have Knightfan's permission, so I will ask him for permission or perhaps he will distribute it on his website - I'll ask him.

Really nice man! I have both Vice City and San Andreas and... I once downloaded Kitt and Karr for Vice City but then in the game I noticed that both the cars were quite unrealistic. I mean the bodywork is quite ugly, don't you think (No offense!!!)?
Michael: Kitt what matters to me is who you are not what you look like. Sure we don't have the car so we can't turbo boost so we can't go over 200 miles an hour but it was all icing on the cake anyway

Let's say it this way: the mesh could have been more accurate of course, but knightfan40 is currently working on a much better version. At the time when he created the VC KITT and KARR meshes (which I have only converted for SA, not created!) it was great and I still like 'em. Check out knightfan's website for some screenshots of KITT v6 (can be found in the news) at http://www.knightfan.tk :D

Knightfan and I are working on the current kitt.Its much more accurate in angles and measurements.We're already on v3 of this new kitt.It will blow every other kitt made or will be made out of the water.I have found the perfect effects to make the new kitt blend in with San Andreas too.

If someone can hack hot coffee out of the XBox, I wonder if someone could hack the code to allow extra cars on that version? I've always wondered since the box has a hefty hard drive if can patches and hacks would be more possible on the XBox version of games.

I'd sell my coveted first release PS2 version for the nuetered XBox version if that were possible.
KITT project is on again!
