CULL is a section in the item placement file in GTA III, Vice City, San Andreas, and GTA IV. It is used to create zones affecting the different behaviour of the world, like mirrors,[1] fixed camera positions, disabling rain, and police behaviors, when the player is within the zone.

Format

GTA III and Vice City

Cull zones in GTA III and Vice City are built by a box which is controlled by various attributes. By default, most of the cull zones are located in data\maps\cull.ipl for both games, although GTA III doesn't seem to use this file. Instead it uses the cullzone.dat file to define these zones.

GTA III Vice City Identifier Type Description
A,B,C CenterX, CenterY, CenterZ float[3] A point which defines the center of the box in real world coordinates.
D,E,F X1, Y1, Z1 float[3] A point which corresponds to the corner of the box, usually the lower left.
G,H,I X2, Y2, Z2 float[3] A point which corresponds to the opposite corner of the box, usually the upper right.
J Attribute integer The attribute in flag field representation (see below).
K WantedLevelDrop integer Usually 0

Changing the zones center coordinates does not directly affect the zone itself. Anyway this vector should always point to the real center of the zone since those values are used to calculate the distance of several instances (e.g. the player) to the zone itself.

GTA San Andreas / IV

San Andreas has two different major formats in the game:

CenterX, CenterY, CenterZ, Unknown1, Length, Bottom, Width, Unknown2, Top, Flag, Unknown3
CenterX, CenterY, CenterZ, Unknown1, Length, Bottom, Width, Unknown2, Top, Flag, Vx, Vy, Vz, Cm

Coordinates are always rounded to the nearest world unit so that they are no longer floating point values, they are non-decimal integers.

Value Description
CenterX, CenterY, CenterZ Vector to the center of the cull zone.
Unknown1, Unknown2, Unknown3 Allways 0.
Length Dimensions of the zone along y-axis.
Width Dimensions of the zone along x-axis.
Top, Bottom Absolute Z coordinate of the top and bottom of the box.
Flag The behaviour of the cull zone – see below
Vx, Vy, Vz, Cm Mirror parameters [3].
