[08.04.2021] Grand Theft Auto: Vice City – Definitive Edition <UPD 7>
The patch has been updated and the following changes have been made:

• A lot of work has been done to combine VRTP and AI Enhanced Texture. All game textures have been compressed to 512px, as well as improved, so now the game looks great, performance is improved, and the size of the DE archive has been reduced to a measly

921 MB. It affected everything, including cars and peds.
• Adjustments in SkyGfx.ini
Do not forget that the update should only be installed on a clean game. There may be problems with saves in the form of various bugs. Recommend starting a new game!
