my water disappears when in Wet county, I'm sure it does the same thing over bridges etc, but why is it doing that and can I get some help to fix it?? 
latest driver updates for my videocard, only mod installed is a view distance thing that replaces the timecyc, timecycp dat files and I am using the hoodlum/co cd needed exe...

Previously, a draw distance mod that I had been using for some time started doing this as well. At first it worked correctly, then it started doing this. I did a fresh install of the game and the mod and it fixed it for a while until it did it again. Eventually I cba anymore and deleted it, at which point it stopped happening.

Don't know of any other way to fix it.

well I've reinstalled but my problem now has been the fact that I still have the modified textures in game even though my gta3 img is 100% vanilla, and I have absolutely no other mods in...  damn you Windows 10.... it must be seeing the old one in the registry and not the current one in my folder or something because I have no clue why its doing this..

ok but I like the draw distance.. being able to the skyscrapers of SF from bone county is what I want... :(  but If I have to remove it for it to work properly, then maybe I will

http://www.gtagarage.com/mods/show.php?id=13235 I use this timecyc, you can see the Chilliad from LS beach, there is some screens, and it doesn't bug the  water, just copy everything inside the timecyc and copy into timecyc.aaa

@Ethan, sometimes img editors save a gta3.img to C:\Users\(you)\AppData\Local\VirtualStore

try deleting the San Andreas folder within the program files (x86) folder, assuming you're on 64-bit. I remember my editor doing this a long time ago because it didn't have admin privileges.

thanks Emily, and folder deleted

edit:
folder was restored as removing it made my game ugly as fuck.... I replaced a couple files in fronten2.txd and seems to be better than before, although in certain places only, water fades away.

I used to have weird bugs with mine as well. Modifications and MP don't mix as well as they do in SP.

Oh. I never played SP on the PC. It crashed and didn't work as well as it does on the console. Good ol' Rockstar and their shitty PC ports.
