Description
Real-Speed v1.2 final

A few friends and I have been working on a mod for GTA:SA to give all cars and motorbikes real life speeds. We were a little disappointed with some of the vehicle speeds in san andreas, things like the sanchez and the HPV1000 having the same top speeds, a ferrari having 120mph top speed and a powerfull 500cc racing bike only maxing 110mph let the game down in our eyes; so rather than just moan about it we thought we would try to put things right a little.

Along with their top speeds, all vehicles have had there acceleration tweaked in line with their speeds and realism based on the type of car. The traction on them has been slightly tweaked also depending on the type of vehicle, for example the Bullet - it's pointless having a car that can reach 200mph if it feels like someone has replaced your wheels with butter and your just spinning on the spot. That said, it's all kept within realistic limits though - for example; if you have a sports car on grass and go full throttle it will still spin out on you. The 4x4's can now handle hills alot better, like they should, while the top speeds have been kept down the torqe has been increased to allow for more power at low end.

Changelog
v1.2 - reworked handling to reduce all vehicles acceleration.
 - changed turismo to rear-wd as it should be (R* had made it 4wd for some reason, a 4x4 f40, odd)
 - added 'extreme' install option for those stunters who still want the old style RS mod accel speeds.
v1.1 - improved installer. fixed oversteer problem on some cars
v1.0 - rewrite of all cars/bike tweaks to improve handling
v0.1 beta - first public release

The mod comes complete with its own installer which reads the path to GTA:SA from the registry, so you don't even need to point it at your game. It also gives 3 options, 1 - install Real-Speed mod for all cars and bikes, 2 - install for cars only, 3 - install for bikes only. When you install this mod the installer makes a back up your original file and will restore this file when you uninstall the mod. Security blurb - The installer has been checked and is free from adware, spyware, viri or any other nasties.

The team: Zeph - config, testing, research. Coshy - research, testing. Kamelion - testing, research. Zero3cool - installer.

We really hope you enjoy playing San Andreas with this mod as much as we do, but we really recommend you should wait until after completing the game before installing this mod. Let's not spoil the way the developers wanted us to play the game.:cool:


Special thanks go to these peeps:
R* - for such a great game. Spookie - for his wicked speedometer, this is what started us out on a speed mission. Cerbera - his texts on gta car handling are second to non, this project would be so much less without his detailed info. Uluru - for GarageEdit, it's made this project more fun and less searching. Fordsuck - for his real life car list, it made finding info so much easier.

The sound in my game stops after a while of playing with this mod installed. sometimes it's within 5 minutes, sometimes it's within 20min before the sound goes out. Iv'e played the game for a long time without this mod and the sound never went out. Is there a fix for this?

how can i delete the mod?????????????


I found it. In the GTA San Andreas folder go to 'data'. There should be the real-speed mod icon which should uninstall it. (Bad english, i know :p )

i cant get the speedometer to show up. what gives?


It hasn't got a speedometer, this mod only makes the cars & bikes handling & speeds realistic and nothing else!


IF YOU WANT A SPEEDOMETER I RECOMMEND MINE:

What about the Bobcat only going 66MPH? They are Dodge Dakotas, and the speedometer of mine goes up to 125, but it's a 93. see my post below for more details
