it's come to my attention that chromexmods has done something rather unthinkable and now the modding community at large is eating itself alive over this troll modding for gta online. I personally hated gta online in many ways because of how sh*ttily it was built in many respects. I had guys band together with machine guns going through the maps gunning everyone down and taking their money. one time I just escaped with no tires when someone spawned right in front of me,killed me and stole my car. and I hated this. I just wanted to play without having to go to passive mod,or try to use my cell to deposit my money and basicly put I hated it because people with higher ranks were just desimating people who just started out because they could. now the play modes were fine I had no major issue with that it was the hub world where I really just gave up on online.
which is too bad because there is a tanker stealing mission in gta V that would be perfect for our models. but it looks like that may not possible in the future release of GTA V for pc. for those,like myself who are unaware of what I am talking about here is the article that a fellow modder has sent to me.
this is what's eating the modding community a live right now and may jeapodrize the future pc modding for gta 5 and it pisses me off. but at the same time there is a lot of bullsh*t going with both sides.
case in point "While some claim the attacks are ‘funny’, others have criticised its depiction and trivialisation of sexual violence." funny? no but trivializing sexual assault...are you joking me? I'm sorry but no. this is a disgusting but you know what rockstar should have been more vigilant with the online coding and prepared for this because now...online modding for the pc will most certianly be locked out if any modding is allowed in gta V at all. and that means that half the reason for doing my work for gta V is gone. because people want my mods to do online matches and now they may never get that chance to do that in gta V.
since half the reason you all held on for so long as because of the possibilites in HD and ONLINE this almost kills half my reason for doing this mod.
which really makes me wonder if there is a point anymore. I have so many projects that aren't mad max that I'd love to see come to all gta's. but if 1. no one is going to help me skin or tech shoot these models for the game and 2. online is going to be a major no go. then is worth even coming back to? I do plan to finish up the truck above in the next couple of days regaurdless. and some models will be made even if not for gaming because I am a model maker it's in my blood.
but I am just not sure what to think anymore. we have people in the community who now hate the community because of what chromexmods did. even more so because some people are kissing chomex's ass. I don't think the above cited mods are okay. but now this is turning so many people against us. which is sad cause modding by in large is a universal good. I have a lot to think about.
on the mod front, I think the engine and radiator may be sitting too high on the model so that's gotta be sorted out before I can even hope to get to the rest of the model specifications. but it's largerly fix the motor ,mount it properly,make the wires for the engine and fuel tanks,chicken mesh and cabin. then I keep forgetting I have to make the chassis_vlo to encompass the model. before going back over her with a low poly brush for the low end machines in the audience.
I've been really contemplating a kickstarter for the models maybe if I bring money into this then someone will be more then happy to skin and tech shoot the models. not sure but it's one of many options I am exploring should I choose to keep moving forward with this mod. but I cannot say I am very happy with what's going on right now. I'll stand by this community and f*ck the haters but at the same time there is a lot to unpack here.
