Information/Mod Requests From The GTA V Speedrunners.
I have three requests, one for information about the GTA V SP code and two for possible mods. Any help would be greatly appreciated by many people, both speedrunners and viewers alike.
Firstly, does anyone have any information as to how the 'switching mechanic' works in GTA V. For example, if we finish 'Scouting The Port' as Trevor, what influences where Michael and Franklin will be on the map when we switch to them? After some missions, all three characters are gauranteed to be in particular locations. But for other missions it is semi-random each character having a limited amount of possible locations but we can't know which it will be. We are pretty sure it is something we can manipulate (I could explain in detail why this is if you wish).
Secondly, we would love a mod where we could save the game literally anywhere. While being able to quick save with my phone is nice, being able to save during a mission would be even better. Some speedruns have the benefit of save states, such as those run on emulators, the closer the mod could be to that the better. I would imagine this to be unlikely to be possible but worth it to ask.
Thirdly, a mod that shows the actual size of mission markers. We know that some mission markers have a larger area than the circle shown on the ground. Here are three examples: On 'The Multi-Target Assassination' https://clips.twitch.tv/WanderingGiantLatteJKanStyle on 'Trevor Phillip Industries' and https://clips.twitch.tv/TalentedRoughBaconHassaanChop and 'Surveying The Score' https://clips.twitch.tv/SoftWildDeerFrankerZ Trying every single mission marker from every angle and distance to determine their size would be several lifetimes.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks for your time.
