I just heard the news.......R.I.P. Odie.
I hope you can go on modding GTA, whereever you may be....

I first heard of ODIE back when GTA3 just was released in Germany and Austria. Not even a day after I got my copy, I met ODIE in a german board, GTA3Zone. I've always been the modding type of person, not a single game so far was untouched by me. Bang, ODIE's Stuntpark came out. I started mailing and PMing him about the programs, how to use them, and yet after that, I had like the 2nd Map containing new objects in whole german community. But as 2nd, noone even noticed me.

Later on, Vice City, his Beachpark was once again first Map. and lots followed...
Our ways split up then, I went the coding way, while he kept on modeling. We should meet again later on Myriad Island, which I had to cancel - too few time while beeing in school.

*sigh* its sad to see such a great modder and good friend pass away....
Once again, Rest in Peace Odie. We will miss you...

I spoke with him once ... in german language, great guy with humour. This is unbelievable. It was his stunt park which got me to GTAForums from a german site redirector...

I shall never forget him. sad.gif

steve didn't want to tell us, and there's a reason why he didn't.

I'd like to know too, but...

At some point all the people who are gods of modding gta will past away but they dont deserve it. And i hope all his work he was working on will be finished by this great community and its even more a shock for steve-m because he knows him in real person. if i see his profile he was only 38 thats really to early Rest In piece Again.

Oh man, I cant believe he has gone. Im truely touched, yet speachless. He was the best mapper in my eyes. I loved his work and the passion he had for GTA.

Like a few other people have said in this topic, I for one think we must make some sort of memorial for him, be it a graphic on these forums, a mod in san andreas or somthing in the next GTA. We must do somthing...

RIP

That is very upsetting. I never really spoke to him, but I played his mods and I knew of him and his reputation, and I know it was well deserved, he will be missed, by me and others.

Everyone that can do sómething should help with making a mod...maybe based on his incomplete material...If everyone helps we can make it a huge mod, so no one will ever forget about Odie. It's just an idea, but this way people will continu playing it and see a text on the wall with his name on it so he'll be remembered...

I am utterly speechless, this is a sad moment in the history of GTA modding, I looked upto Odie, his work inspired me to work on Myriad, he helped me get into modelling and he will be missed.

Aye, I have that very mod installed in my GTA3 game right now, McOdie's takes on new meaning. I didn't know him, but I respect his work. Hope you don't mind if I slip in my own RIP statement...
