Oh good lord... I don't believe this. I cannot beleive I have only noticed this topic.

R.I.P. Odie, and my condolences go out to his son, wife, and relatives.

How I wish, how I wish you were here.
We're just two lost souls swimming in a fish bowl, year after year,
Running over the same old ground.
What have you found? The same old fears.
Wish you were here.

I never talked to Odie but I hope you R.I.P Odie. Your mod was one of my first mods for gta3. I loved your stunt Park. cryani.gif

what we should do for Odie is make a Hall of Famer thread, that would post people who have contributed alot to this forum, and it will be a way to remember him by

Now I know why almost anybody has
R.I.P. Odie
In their signatures. Well maybe without the quotes...

cryani.gif R.I.P. Odie cryani.gif

I guess he really was 1 of the greatest of modders. R* could put a statue or something memorial in their next GTA game rahkstar2.gif Like a easter egg or somthing.

Oh, and about that memorial map: An excellent idea!

EDIT: How old is/was Odie?

Odie's Stuntpark was one of the first mods I tried for GTA III back a few years ago, and the Miss Liberty was also excellent (though I always wished there was a boat to get back to the mainland at the jetty).

I just learned of Odie's passing and was saddened by the news. His work and spirit will live on in past, present and future GTA mods.

Need you to save me a spot, next to you and the lord
Don't know when I'm coming, but keep checking the door
But while I'm here, knock on wood
I'll make sure that your kids remember who their father was
And Val is good, (aight!) understood how real niggaz move
We don't part, but ya gonna always have family in New York (Liberty City)
Believe that (yeah!), where you at, you can see that
We dogs for life and to death and I mean that!

i realise its disgustingly late after he died to post this, but i figured that even though youll see very rare posts from me, this is by far the most important post ill ever make. Like others, i cant lie and say i knew you personally... but i knew your map mods. i've been a gta fan since the first grand theft auto came out. i played it endlessly back then. then, gta3 made my dream come true by combining shooting, vehicles, and a massive in such an innovative way. I then enjoyed and beat vice city on the ps2 long before it was available to pc, and if anyone deserved an earlier pc release, it would be someone who was as big a dedicated modder as Odie.

I'm a mapper myself, but not for vice city. this way, i can relate to you, but only to a certain degree, since gta3 and vice city are clearly not as modder-friendly as other games for which the sdks are released almost at once wtih the game itself... i map for the obsolete engine, the newer source engine, and the widely used quake 3 engine. i encounter many modders every day, all cought up in their own reality, pursuing their own goals, which in a way dont meet up with what everyone else may want. many map modders map for themselves, but you mapped for us all. dedicating your heart to consider exactly what the gta community would want from you, and you put it out there. I find myself to be really critical in general, especially when it comes to mods and maps, i'd always pick out some detail that i wouldnt like. not yours. besides being a mapper, im also a dedicated gta stunter, althouhg i rarely put out videos... but after playing your beach park for vice city, i came back to gta3 for your stunt park, and played endlessly on it, even though i'd usually stick to bikes.

The next stunt video i make will be a tribute dedicated soley to you and your contributions, not necessarily to my life as a gamer, but to all these people who have been posting here for more than two months after steve's announcement. To any fellow stunters who come across this thread and share my feelings and would like to be a part of this, please contact me: [email protected]

your thoughts about gta modding have now become a reality. you were and always will be made for modding gta. there's no doubt about it.

rest in peace.

R.I.P. Odie. He was an all time excelent mapper for the GTA games. I remember when I finally got to download his mods/maps. May God be with his family and watch over them safely. R.I.P. to one of the greatest mappers and let him be in our memories.

I can't even believe it's been one year.

I can still remember having trouble installing Odie's stunt park, then after weeks, I got it to work. I couldn't tell you how much fun I had playing with it and how awesome it looked.

I never saw you on the forums Odie, never really even heard of you until after all of this, but I thank you for doing so much for the GTAF community.

Wow, a year already, it feels like only yesterday. In fact, Myriad hasn't exactly moved on much since then, sure it's gaining a bit more pace now, but wow. Poor Odie, way too soon.

sorry people 4 this post, i know this can be sad for most of you...
but I always loved Odie's job, from his first mods for gta3, and I think this little post is the least I can do to thank and commemorate him.

I hope my message will reach him, wherever he could be now...
