PC Single-Player Mods

Derp Herpington (talk) 19:32, June 23, 2017 (UTC)

They haven't explicitly stated
1) That 1) "leaking" is bad but 2) that "leaking" is acceptable
2) That OpenIV is allowed - the software used to "leak" this information.
3) That "leaking" will continue
4) That mods using OpenIV is accepted
5) That this stuff is considered GTA Online breaching.
And when I say "leaking", I mean finding things they left in folders that can be reached pretty damn easily - leave it on ur hardrive R* :0
So nope, just to be safe, undeleted when the updates are released. :( Monk Talk 20:32, June 23, 2017 (UTC)

RE: OpenIV

Before the real deal leaked there have been a few alternatives which worked just fine (actually used one of those for screenshots). Anyway, good to know the situation is going to be resolved. V-michael-trunk-miniV-franklin-trunk-miniV-trevor-trunk-mini 06-25-2017, 08:57:44 (EDT)

Modify CSS of the header

Hello hello!

I hope you are doing great!

This is Chen from FANDOM. I contacted LS11sVaultBoy a while ago about a request of modifying CSS of the header on GTA wiki, but it seems he hasn't been active since I left the message.

As we recently released the new header and updated our Customization Policy, the glowing link hover highlights of the header on this wiki does not fit to our new policy anymore. Unfortunately all communities are not allowed to customize their headers. Would you please take some time to adjust CSS on this wiki and reverse it to the default? We really appreciate your understanding about this situation and help us make the change. If you need help from our staff, please let me know.

Thank you!

Chen @fandom 17:38, June 29, 2017 (UTC)

Well, you've come to the right place, as I was the one who created the css for this wiki's header. I'll change it now. Monk Talk 18:53, July 1, 2017 (UTC)
I hid the code, as if necessary, if Fandom staff may change their minds and/or allow moderate customisation. I've hid the code for future usage. Monk Talk 20:25, July 4, 2017 (UTC)

Page deletion

Hi, this page needs deleting: http://gta.wikia.com/wiki/LONELB --20px The Cruentus (Talk) 16:11, July 1, 2017 (UTC)

Done. In future, please attach a {{Delete}} template to the page and state your reason, and if necessary, elaborate on the page's talk page. Thanks.
PS, you might want to make some coding changes to your user signature; it seems to be formatted incorrectly, causing hidden code errors within source. A repaired version would be so:
[[File:PredTriLaser.png|20px|link=Special:Contributions/The Cruentus]] [[User:The Cruentus|<span style="color:#FF0000; text-shadow: 0px 0px 4px #FF0000; letter-spacing: 2px">'''The Cruentus'''</span>]] <sup>([[User talk:The Cruentus|<span style="color:#FF0000;">'''Talk'''</span>]])</sup>

Vertical Rate

Hey man. How's going?

Well, I noticed that some aircraft still have their vertical climb/fall rate hidden in the performance sections and that you wanted to have these in the tables (not sure where you said that. Can't find that page XD).

Anyway, the point is that I could make space for that by changing the landing gears parameter, since, on a technical standpoint, is not that really part of the mechanics of a vehicle, apart that they takes too much for the table (Sure, car engines can be the same, but they are still specifying the vehicle's mechanics in there). So what do you say? --BodyArmor-GTACW-Android SWAT Cam F VehicleWeapon-GTACW-Android Detonator-GTACW-Android Crate-GTACW-Android 19:58, July 4, 2017 (UTC)

BTW, could you please delete this? In that way, we could rename Sean's one into the proposed version that works in the same way as the weapon's one (with flags and stuff like that). Thank you in advance. --BodyArmor-GTACW-Android SWAT Cam F VehicleWeapon-GTACW-Android Detonator-GTACW-Android Crate-GTACW-Android 20:07, July 4, 2017 (UTC)
I was actually wondering about the landing gear thing several days ago when I noticed it; it isn't really appropriate for performance, and rather is a design feature. Perhaps replacing it with vertical climb and descent rate would be more appropriate. Please do consider it, you have my approval. Thanks!
PS Thanks for bringing this to my attention, I'm sure that information has been hidden for about 10 months on articles now, and really does need to be documented properly. - This means more data collection( when I get time, haha)
Thanks. Monk Talk 20:25, July 4, 2017 (UTC)

RE: Badges

Personally, I believe that if the vehicle model recycles older badges, such as the Osiris using parts of the Infernus' badge, then only the relevant detail such be posted.

Seeing as many vehicles (sticking with the Infernus example.) use the same badge in select parts, such as the Tempesta, Osiris, and Torero, it would be wise to use a Pegassi-Generic-Sport-Detail image with the Infernus part cut out.

Gunrunning ammunition

Hey, would you know where I could find the exact stats for the secondary ammunition used on the Gunrunning Mk.II weapons? After testing some on random NPCs, the results didn't differ much, and I was wondering if somebody actually had the damage and effects listed.

RE: Blista Compact Dial Patches

I think they might have remapped the dashboard model so that it doesn't use the Futo bit.

Fieldmaster's trailers

Should we name both as a single name specified on the vehicle table ("Baletrailer" and "Graintrailer") or as in the navigation template ("Bale Trailer" and "Grain Trailer")? --BodyArmor-GTACW-Android SWAT Cam F VehicleWeapon-GTACW-Android Detonator-GTACW-Android Crate-GTACW-Android 22:30, July 24, 2017 (UTC)

More like impressed by the fact how I started creating the "Baletrailer" shortly before the images and figured it out when I searched "bale" to put that single example uploaded long time ago.

Popgroups (IV)

Hey man. How's going?

Well, I'm gonna ask you if you're able to add something to the "popgroups" template, so it is able to add exceptions on it. Why? Let me tell you that.

Taking a look on the Cargrp.dat, the Feroci itself (not the FlyUs version) seems to appear normally in the respective groups in the three games, but in the NETWORK group, it is absent in TLAD, which means it does not spawn in multiplayer (unless it is a mistake, but I cannot infer that at the moment). It would be good to add something like "[groupname] ([exception])", so it would clearly state in which games it only or does not appear. So what do you think? --BodyArmor-GTACW-Android SWAT Cam F VehicleWeapon-GTACW-Android Detonator-GTACW-Android Crate-GTACW-Android 23:47, July 29, 2017 (UTC)

Or just do separate game title expands? GTA IV & TBOGT (EXPAND) (flags), TLAD (EXPAND) (flags).
That should work. ;) Monk Talk 00:01, July 30, 2017 (UTC)

RE: Disruption Logistics (and The Open Road)

Internally, the MOC screen with missions (example) by Agent 14 is called "Covert Operations" (covert_ops), so that's what I would go with personally. V-michael-trunk-miniV-franklin-trunk-miniV-trevor-trunk-mini 08-07-2017, 12:59:11 (EDT)

Covert Ops/Covert Operations. It makes sense as:
  • Agent 14 calls you about purchasing a Bunker.
  • Once you buy a bunker, Agent 14 introduces you to gunrunning -- Bunker stuff and Disruption Logistics -- and acts like your boss/assistant during sell/resupply missions.
  • After certain resupplies complete, Agent 14 personally gives you missions through the screen in the MOC. It doesn't have an official name in-game, but internally it's covert_ops, which makes sense considering who Agent 14 is.
Mobile Operations only really covers one aspect of this, so does Disruption Logistics. V-michael-trunk-miniV-franklin-trunk-miniV-trevor-trunk-mini 08-07-2017, 01:15:00 (EDT)

I just posted a blog post about Volunteer Curators here on GTA Wiki and I'm wondering if it'd be ok with you and the rest of the admin team if I posted a community message about it (like a site-wide message, but just for this wiki).

Thanks! -- Sannse @fandom (help forum | blog) 20:25, August 29, 2017 (UTC)

Hi Sannse, and apologies for not responding. I didn't see much point in posting this to the GTA Wiki's forums as it was undeniably a good idea which the GTA Wiki would fully support.

The way I was thinking was fully modded, so best spoiler, suspension lowered all the way down, engine tuned to 4 and stuff like that.

Rapid GT Classic

So it goes against community guidelines to add an observation to the Trivia category? I wasn't describing the vehicle's performance I was pointing out an obvious fact. It does resemble Bond's Aston Martin V8, does it not? I'm just trying to clarify why you'd threaten to report me for adding that observation. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Zachgriff11 (talkcontribs) Please remember to sign your talk page messages with ~~~~.

  1. You added it to the wrong section; performance section is for performance, not "trivia".
  2. An observation? You do realise there's nothing exactly special about the design of the Rapid GT Classic that pairs it to Bond's V8? It's not like the case of the JB 700, which not only has a naming reference, but also weaponry based on that of the Bond films. The Rapid GT is literally just modeled after the Aston Martin V8, which is a regular coupe car, manufactured by Aston Martin, for the public. The fact Bond uses it doesn't grant it "Bond car", nor does it in any appearance it's reflected in. If the car was named "Rapid GT 700", I'd probably think again, or if it had some kind of unique license plate, or if it had the offensive and defensive weaponry Bond's car had, I'd definitely be willing to accept it's a complete Bond reference.
That wasn't a threat, it was a warning. The statement was added numerous times, and was removed several more times. This is edit warring. If you want to know why something was removed, if not already stated in the summary, you should contact that user (like you finally have now), instead of merely adding it back. When something is removed, it is expected that a reason is provided. Monk Talk 20:46, September 3, 2017 (UTC)

New page about "Decapitation"?

Hey, Monk. Dude, I'm sorry for asking you this. This one might sound uncomfort to discuss but, is it allowed for us to create a new page about "decapitation"? Will it against the rules of the Wikia community?

Well, I understand the topic sounds violent. But, you know, we all know that the decapitation is one of the killing methods which once appeared in the Grand Theft Auto series, particularly in the 3D Universe, starts from GTA Vice City, then to GTA San Andreas and Liberty City Stories, and finally the Vice City Stories. It's no longer implemented in the HD Universe, I wonder why.

I think it might be interesting to discuss so I guess it deserves a page, but I'm also afraid that creating pages with element of gore inside it might against the rules. What do you think about this idea? Rokuju (talk) 07:17, September 5, 2017 (UTC)-Rokuju User talk:Rokuju 14:26, September 05, 2017 (UTC+07:00)

About weapons.meta...

I am currently working on a spreadsheet which displays all of the weapons' actual stats for GTAV. Since I don't know enough to get weapons.meta out of my own game files, I've found several sources online from which I've just pulled the numbers off of. However, many of them are outdated, and because of such, have wrong values for some guns which have since been changed in recent updates. I assume that you had pulled all the data on the weapons.meta page from your own game, so I am wondering what version of the game did you use to get all of that data? I noticed several guns were missing, such as the guns from the Lowrider DLC (compact rifle, machine pistol) and Biker DLC, but you still had the data for Gunrunning DLC weapons.     Spazmat (talk) 21:01, September 6, 2017 (UTC)

Hey! So, yeah, I got them from ALMOST the latest game version, however I can't guarantee they're 100% accurate, as, as you've said, there's a few missing, and in that time, things might have been changed. As such, I haven't exported ALL of them yet. I'll let you know when I get hold of all them, and perhaps I can send them over by email or such. Thanks! Monk Talk 21:09, September 6, 2017 (UTC)

Regarding 4K screenshots

Hi Monk, two simple questions for you. I'm planning to update all vehicle images with 4K resolution screenshots. Would that be okay with you? If yes, will I have to compress those images to avoid server crashing? I've done something like this before, for my own satisfaction. And the results are usually 5MB ~ 10MB in size, the biggest one so far is 11.6MB, all in .png format. 

Thanks in advance!

Noirlime4L (talk) 15:23, September 11, 2017 (UTC)

Okay, your two requests contradict each other:
  • 4K image
  • Compressed
If you have a 4K image, compressing it only makes it worse, probably more similar to a 2K image than a 4K image. So there's no point doing that either.
The current vehicle images are fine. The majority are 1080p, 1920x1080, PNG, raw screenshots. Some others are 2K, 2560x1440, done simply because of the opportunity. While I was able to get 4K screenshots, the reason I didn't was simple: image size.
The 2K images are, at most, 8MB large, which is pretty damn large. The thing is, this is in PNG. If I had got 4K versions, they would be around 15 MB. You have to consider that this wiki isn't just a personal document, and just because you may have a great PC that can render 4K, and load images on websites images, no matter their size, not everyone has this ability - 15MB pictures on an average PC on mediocre internet would take quite a damn while to load.
What's more, 2K and 1080p do fine; they capture enough detail and at full screen preview, are more than enough - the average person owns a 1920x1080 display, which fits perfectly with a 1080p image. These images load quickly and are crisp.
The majority of the GTA IV images are either 1080p or 2K, while an exceptional few are 4K - I've noticed the difference between 2k and 4K in GTA IV barely makes a difference to the file size on the wiki, this is due to the fact GTA IV isn't actually made for 4K and what you're seeing is just an upscale, not a raw 4K image.
In summary, no, there is absolutely no need to replace vehicle images. The principal is that the images should only be replaced if the quality is outdated/not good enough, or if the vehicle or data in respect to its appearance itself have changed. Monk Talk 17:35, September 11, 2017 (UTC)
Not to mention we would really be stretching the "web resolution fair-use" copyright justification by publishing "max resolution" files. I even questioned whether 1080p images back in 2015 were allowable. So I agree with Monk. 4k for the sake of 4k is not required. I have accidentally uploaded a couple of 4K shots (not of vehicles) without remembering to re-size down. Smurfy: illuminate - communicate - spectate 20:18, September 11, 2017 (UTC)
Duly noted. Thanks for the replies, for the both of you. I'll consider replacing the not-so-good ones, with 1080p images of course. Noirlime4L (talk) 06:18, September 12, 2017 (UTC)
The IV+eps and v ones were all replaced already and are fine. Other GTA games may yave dome that need replacing, though. Monk Talk 13:13, September 12, 2017 (UTC)

Deleted songs and other stuff

I was about to message you and suggest that looking at the latest PC gxt2 files could be misleading. You really need a vanilla previous gen console version (with no patches applied - just in case it got updated). Of course, checking who added the songs to the pages is also a good indicator of the validity.

Also, locations/game appearances. As I mentioned on the user's talk page, I may have missed some decision allowing adding Online to the Infobox game appearances, but I can't find anything looking through the discussions on the noticeboard. I assume it was in user talk? Smurfy: illuminate - communicate - spectate 18:06, September 16, 2017 (UTC)

@RadioStations yeah, that came into my head after. Although I still feel it's better to start from fresh and begin sourcing what we can, and provide sources for the rest once they are found, as leaving them unsourced was a bad idea in the first place. Monk Talk 19:12, September 16, 2017 (UTC)
@Locations/Game appearances, I recall it being discussed somewhere, not too sure where. Either way, it makes sense, that the appearances reflects the location's significance rather than physical existence - ie, the location is prominent in that game, and/or is required to be visited assuming you do "every" mission/objective/whatever in the game. Perhaps something to be discussed on the noticeboard/forums, if it hasn't been already? Monk Talk 19:12, September 16, 2017 (UTC)

Mule2

In GTA Online. There's a bunker resupply mission where you have to blow up a power plant near Davis. A mule2 is parked in one of the power plant alleyways. V-michael-trunk-miniV-franklin-trunk-miniV-trevor-trunk-mini 09-16-2017, 03:24:06 (EDT)

Something about logos...

I have no idea what you're talking about. Monk Talk 16:51, September 17, 2017 (UTC)

Vehicle Modelset

Hey man.

Why the vehicle modelset page was deleted? You could have just reverted the interpretation table from it if you didn't wanted it in the page, so I could derive it to somewhere else. --BodyArmor-GTACW-Android SWAT Cam F VehicleWeapon-GTACW-Android Detonator-GTACW-Android Crate-GTACW-Android 19:45, September 19, 2017 (UTC)
