GTA4 Modding Banned? (25th May 2008)

A GTA Forums topic, Regarding IV, effectively bans all worthwhile modding of the game.

(Expletives deleted.)

Guess I jumped ship at the right time. Modding communities have been instrumental to the success of GTA, particularly in the early years. DMA Design understood this. Rockstar Games never seemed to accept that, let alone embrace it.

GTA modding is now a dead end. It could have been like Unreal Tournament and other massively successful, highly moddable multiplayer games. That opportunity has been rejected, it seems.

The curtness of illspirit’s message makes me think he’s as upset about this as I am.
