Leather jackets for Niko
Contact me by email if there's any questions: McNools@gmail.com
Well, I was dissapointed with the lack of good leather jackets in the game, I mean,
the guy is a criminal, everybody knows criminals wear leather-jackets! The one you
start with in the beginning is nice, but feels a little bit too.. out of fashion, and
it's short! So I decided to convert the sports-coats into leather jackets instead.
It comes in three versions. One black with a black shirt underneath, one brown with a
white shirt underneath, and one brown (slightly more brown than the other one) with a
black shirt underneath.
Installation: (remember to do a backup of the playerped.rpf before doing this, I'm
not responsible if you mess everything up):
First of all, you need to prep GTA IV so that you can use mods (I think ) there are
patches etc. for that around, google-search for "GTA IV mod patch" or something in
Use SparkIV to replace the sports jacket-textures in the playerped.rpf with my
in other words, replace the texture-files with the corresponding names in:
uppr_diff_001_a_uni.wtd with my uppr_diff_001_a_uni.png
uppr_diff_001_b_uni.wtd with my uppr_diff_001_b_uni.png
uppr_diff_001_c_uni.wtd with my uppr_diff_001_c_uni.png
then replace the normal-map and specular-map (I think that's what they called ) in
the uppr_001_u.wdr with mine.
(uppr_normal_001.png is the normal-map and uppr_spec_001.png is the specular map)
For more detailed instructions on how to do this, try to find some guides about
SparkIV online, I'm not good at explaining these things.
Finally, go enjoy these fine leather jackets (if it works, otherwise, just.. try to
take it easy! ).
I hope you enjoy it.
Oh, and I might want to add this, feel free to modify these in any way you like, just make sure to give me credit for the original work and send an email as courtesty and ask me if you want to release the modified version of it online etc. A good mod-community is about sharing and credit.
Sorry about the late reply (I hardly ever check this), the jackets are in the... eh... sporty trendy stores on the central islands. Modo? Something like that. In other words, not the cheap store, and not the suit-store.
