In August 2018, we informed you about a graphical overhaul mod for Grand Theft Auto San Andreas, SA_DirectX 2.0. And earlier this week, modder ‘Makarus’ released a brand new beta version of it.
SA_DirectX 3.0 Beta adds new Reflections (SSR), Volumetric Clouds, Screen Space Reflections, SSAO, GodRays and Rain drops. Additionally, it packs some lighting tweaks and improvements.
Unfortunately, this beta build is behind a Patreon wall. Still, Makarus plans to release the mod to the public once it hits a more stable /final version. Until then, you can go ahead and download its previous version. We also suggest using this AI-enhanced HD Texture Pack.
In order to showcase the improvements that this mod brings to the table, the modder also released the following video.
Theoretically speaking, Take-Two will not take it down. I mean, the company has not taken down its previous version, and this is simply a graphical mod and nothing more. It’s not a remake or a remaster in a different game/engine. But then again, this is Take-Two we’re talking about.
Enjoy the video and stay tuned for more!
