The modifier restored the fog effect to Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas Final Edition, overcoming popular criticism of the Trilogy remake.
“Trouble” is probably the most polite way to describe a debut Grand Theft Auto: The Trilogy – Final Edition. Compare with Cyberpunk 2077 maybe a bit hyperbolic, although it is understandable that some players will draw that parallel.
Fortunately, the modders are working on solving some of the problems that are causing Grand Theft Auto: The Trilogy – Final Edition. This includes a recent mod that reintroduces fog for Grand Theft Auto san andreas.
This doesn’t seem like a big deal to those who haven’t played yet Grand Theft Auto: The Trilogy, but Fog extends the distance of San Andreas more important than its sound. Older games often used such weather effects to mask their limited shortening distance. However, it also served a secondary function in the early days GTA titles. Although their maps were and still are very large, relatively speaking, they can look quite small when viewed from higher altitudes. Hiding parts of the city behind a fog or bank fog makes the map appear much larger than it would be possible to model in the game engine.
Unfortunately, that fog is not in The final version. Therefore, climbing mountains or boarding a plane in San Andreas looks more like inspecting a model train than soaring through a sprawling metropolis. The lack of fog also does nothing to hide the clear boundary between the ocean and the sky box. The good news is modders are coming GTA Trilogy’s rescue, which restores both the fog and the illusion of scale.
Reddit user and Youtuber TJGM uploaded a video showcasing the fog mod in action. When San Andreas’ the map still looks tiny from the sky, the mod has removed much of the “tabletop model” look the game had. The fog achieves this by blurring the horizon, reducing the detail levels of distant objects, and muting the overly bright, almost plastic-like colors of the landscape below.
This effect is even more noticeable from lower altitudes, as the player can no longer see the entire landscape uninterrupted from the top of a mountain or skyscraper. Even from the ground, the hazy distance feels more real than in vanilla The final version. Notably, the mod does not change the display distance of the game, only obscuring objects further away in a haze. Players can also choose how thick they want the fog to be in the game.
Installing the mod is a relatively simple process that only requires the player to swap out a single folder in the GTA: Triangle Directory file. However, this is subject to change as both it and the game receive new updates. Meanwhile, fans better hope that Take-Two Interactive didn’t decide to break another app Grand Theft Auto mod.
PS5 and Xbox Series X will be harder to get this holiday season than ever, but November 22 could be the first, best chance of this season.
