Brief description:Used to define paths for traffic

PATH is a section in the item definition file in GTA III and Vice City. It is used to define paths for traffic. Path nodes in GTA III are attached to existing objects in a similar manner to 2DFX. In Vice City, the format of this section is similar to its IPL counterpart but entries will crash the game because of an imposed limit. Use a limit adjuster like VC Limit Adjuster and increase the number of treadables to use this section.

GTA III Identifier Type Description
Group
A GroupType string
  • ped = pedestrian traffic

Node
A NodeType integer
  • 0 = Null
  • 1 = External
  • 2 = Internal
B NextNode integer
  • -1 = Do not link to any other node in this group
  • 0 to 11 = Link to this node number in this group
C IsCrossRoad integer Boolean determining if there is a cross road in the imaginary line joined by two nodes
D,E,F X, Y, Z float[3] X, Y, and Z coordinates relative to the center of the object * 16
G unknown float Always 160
H LeftLanes integer Number of lanes left of the node (ignored for ped path nodes)
I RightLanes integer Number of lanes right of the node (ignored for ped path nodes)
