I happen to own both GTA SA and (Activision's) True Crime: New York City.
I wondered, what if I'd recreate TC: NYC in San Andreas? Sure, it would be a lot of work, but I started work...
NO map is going to be converted, it's a simulator, not a total conversion.
Some things may be impossible to do without CLEO (ex. taxi that takes you to a marker); even if I'm trying to exclude, I think it'd be better for everyone that installs the mod to also have CLEO installed.
This mod is still in beta stages, but promising things will come soon.
Please tell me if shall I continue or if this is just a project that isn't going anywhere.
