Lets say its spawns chargers, a chevy truck and a honda or something but it will keep spawning those same cars over and over.
I also noticed if you change cars it spawns whatever car you are driving . If im driving a ferrari it will spawn mostly ferrari's. But i also have hundreds of taxi's. If this makes since.
If you change cars the cars that are spawned change also. Its weird. I just wanna be able to drive a lambo or some other cars.
Yup, you have the "Taxi bug"'. The real problem is that the game in conjunction with your system is running out of memory. Are you using a Traffic Fix mod?
The best one I've found so far is this one by Chikamru on GTA4-Mods called "Real Traffic": http://www.gta4-mods.com/misc/chikamru-real-traffic-f14716/
My "vehicles.img" file is like 330MB and I used to get TONS of texture pop-ins and weird issues where the roads/buildings etc. would stop loading after playing for a while (memory leaks etc.). That was with the traffic fix by IKT.
I put this one in and BAM! Hardly any texture pop-in and everything loads beautifully. I also get an assortment of cars to spawn correctly - not just taxis and the car I spawned. This is because this mod comes with a "commandline.txt" file that has the correct parameters that help streamline the memory although I think there are limits to that as well.
I play with everything maxed out at 2560x1600 and have NO issues at all!
Although, yesterday, I started getting this "bug" again - only taxis and vehicles that I spawn will spawn. I think I'm reaching the threshold for the memory but not sure how to fix this. My vehicles.img file is now 336MB. However, with this Real Traffic mod, there are NO texture pop-ins at all (at least for me)!Edited by Baasha - 7/30/12 at 9:45am
