GTA Online now has a REALLY "KITT-like" car.

Post by DJGM » Tue Dec 13, 2016 6:13 pm

In the latest DLC update for Grand Theft Auto Online, called "Import/Export" Rockstar Games have introduced a newly
purchasable car that looks a LOT like the original KITT, but probably close enough for R* to not get copyright sued!
It's got a scanner light in the correct position at the front, but it doesn't swish from side to side, and if that isn't
enough, it can even Turbo Boost very much like KITT used to do.



The only caveat, and it's a biggie. The cost is around 4-5million GTA Dollars, making it the single most expensive
vehicle in the entire game. So it's a case of, either you do A LOT of repeated mission grinding, sell all the most
expensive vehicles you own, or (as R* might prefer) buy a Shark Cash Card to get enough in-game virtual cash
if of course you don't already have enough GTA Dollars in your in-game Maze Bank account.

An official car? How surprising. Now, I'm wondering if there's a whole set of Hollywood and other well known cars, too?

Very few upgrade options. Sounds like they truly are trying to stick to the show's notions, here. Would have been nice to have had that gliding parachute in the real show. But, I can understand why they only utilized the other parachute option even once in the real series. (Or was it twice? Probably only once.)

Guns & missiles. It is a modern, GTA world...I suppose. But, can it come to you on it's own after you run around the block as the enemies try to shoot you up?

LOL @Assasinge thanks for the compliment. This actually made me laugh. I remember reading on some site that the knight rider mod for this game to use the Ruiner vehicle and have some of the special effect features to turn GTA5 into knight rider game was getting some heavy attention and wondered what Rockstar thought of that. It seems as though the car we brought to the game and that other guys mod has influenced Rockstar enough to finally make their own attempt at a knight rider like vehicle. Well you know what they say, Imitation is the highest form of flattery. Except in this game, the game developers are trying to copy the fans or cater to what they want instead of working diligently to stop us from modding their game when it first came out on pc.

A challenge to anyone good at making videos with the R* Editor for GTA. Recreate the Knight Rider opening titles
with footage from the game that closes matches the opening titles from seasons 1-3 of the original KR series,
using the Ruiner 2000. If you can somehow add SPM to recreate the season 4 titles, good luck with that!

I had to modify that search term a slight bit. Alas, it brought up this... https://youtu.be/j1qUYuK05Fo

Consider me impressed.

In fact, I think this is a great step towards allowing anyone to make their own show/movie fan fictions on a virtually zero budget. Just get some great computer voices to speak lines. Set up shots. Yada, yada, yada...

That's my brother's video - it's made with the KITT mod for the PC, rather than the new Ruiner 2000. It was an early build though, before they had the correct wheels on the car, and without the functioning scanner. He began to re-make it with the newer version, but never finished it.

He did one for GTA San Andreas some years ago too... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kQJu-o_nXoo

Your brother is Wibbington? Is he the one I helped on the mod page for the KITT mod?

Have they used the Ruiner 2000 from GTA Online, or mods that add a virtual replica of KITT to GTA V for PC?

That's a video using a mod for GTA V on PC, which doesn't count. As I said earlier . . .

Recreate the Knight Rider opening titles with footage from the game that closely matches
the opening titles from seasons 1-3 of the original KR series, using the Ruiner 2000.


The challenge is to make a KR titles recreation video with the car R* have added without using PC mods.

For those who can't wait or want to use the real KITT GTA V model or the KR mod, there's also FiveReborn: fivereborn.com

You might have seen me on RP servers in a all black Ingot (a station wagon by Vulcar ingame) Turbo Boosting around or speeding away in Pursuit Mode. Because you can actually use the GTA: Knight Rider mod and the KITT model in FiveReborn!

Here's a screenshot of K3000 when I press Num0: Image

I would have used the Ruiner/K2000 but the 5R server I play on as we speak has the Ruiner 2000 on it which is super buggy texture wise.

EDIT: As of March 5 2017, Scripthook.NET is blocked in FiveReborn/FiveM. Talk about being assholes, holy *?$#.

Went in my ShareX cache of screenshots and found out I do have a pic of Knight Racer's KITT model in 5R:

Why use a pale copy of the original when you can use a much more accurate Kitt car?

Hell yeah baby! I remember the best KR mods were for GTA SA, with dudes like Tobie and Seven Diamonds and Michel Knight1 and those guys. Remember Knight Rider Back to School? Or GTA: Knight Rider? Heck, there are KR mods for even NFSHP2, I use to play that game all the time!

Wish I could afford it in game though. There are hardly any hackers dropping money anymore.

Get FiveReborn and you never want GTA:O and R*'s awful stance on modding ever again.
