Tornado Script 1.2.2



Now for something a little random. I bring you.. Tornado Script. A script that brings a whole new element to stormy weather in GTA V.
With this script installed, it brings the possibility that a violent tornado will spawn in when the weather turns bad.

Tornados can be set to appear naturally during thunderstorms or spawned at your command using a specified keybind.

The INI config file gives you the option to adjust these settings.

Default activation key is the F6 key. (heh)

Keep in mind that this script does not come without a hit to FPS.
It has yet to be tested on low- end machines, but I think its fair to assume that any especially low- end hardware may have issues running this.

I may try to optimize this further in other releases, but for now, that is the downside to installing this mod.

If you have any ideas for what you want to see with this mod, please post it below. Thanks (:

Additional Requirements
  • Create a folder called "scripts" in the main folder where GTA is installed
  • Place TornadoScript.dll in the folder
  • Place TornadoScript.ini in the folder

Key Binds
T - Open Console

Tips for Improving Performance
  • Set particle quality to low in graphics settings
  • Adjust variables in the INI file such as "
    MaxParticleLayers" and "ParticlesPerLayer"
  • Run the game at a lower resolution

  • Improved framerate by 200%
  • Tornado no longer follows the player
  • Reduced vertical force scale for player entities
  • Added an optional "cloud-top" effect that can be enabled via the config file

  • Adjusted default "ParticlesPerLayer" from 9 to 10

  • Support game patch 1.0.1365.1
  • Added a ton more configurable options to the config file
  • Added an in-game console to change properties of the tornado in real-time

  • Fixes crashing issues related to the parsing of numbers in the config file

  • Essentially rebuilt the entire mod from the ground up to favor performance. Although, the particles themselves remain quite a FPS- killer.
  • Added realistic vortex physics (Much more like a real tornado)
  • Added tweak-able options to the config file that allow customization of the tornado behavior.
  • Removed the tornado sound (for now) since it was causing a bug for quite a few people. I plan to add this back at another time.

  • Fix for HUD disappearing.
  • Added some sound FX.
