Although I never really talked to him, I have so much respect for him and his work and for what he has done.

Rest in peace, Odie.

Oh my god. sad.gif
I was a big friend of ODIE, he helped me with modelling and I gave him ideas. We were a good team. Thanks to him the GTA Community has growed up. Rest in Peace friend, I will miss you forever.

We must build a R.I.P. ODIE statue in San Andreas. So we can remember him, good idea?

Again, Rest in Peace mate and condolences to his wife and son.

Anyone on these forums can`t not put a post in here.
Odie in my opinion was amazing at mapping/modelling.

His maps were the first to go into my GTA 3 and VC, inspired me too, although I`ve done nothing. I was just thinking about him the other day, anticipating a stunt park or something for SA....

R.I.P. Odie!
My condolences to his wife and son also.

About giving a tribute to him, I`m all for it. Rockstar could do a good job with his work, but it would be better if the modders,mappers,coders everyone here did a tribute instead....at least in my opinion, seems more personal that way.

You will be missed Odie!
Thank you

It was because of him that i joined GTAF, i have an huge respect for him... and i'm sure he will be known for a long time in the ones that really follow modding, and the ones who don't too...
R.I.P. We will miss you...

I just can into the picture of gta modding. I didn't know Odie. However, I'm sure he was a wonderful guy. He will be missed. I hope for good fortune for his family. May Odie rest in peace.

I'm only a new member, but i saw his stunt park when it came out, and thats what got me into the world of modding, i wanted to make huge new cites and landscapes for gta.
So a man that can give someone that much inspiration, is a man well respected.
I feel real bad for his family, and i pay my respect. rest in peace man.

Im willing to help with a 3d memorial statue?

I'm already trying to find a model of Odie (to dog from Garfield), since it was his sign all the time.

The Berlin Mod wants to name a district after him, and put that dog onto the Siegessńule.
Unfortunately, no success so far wow.gif

This is so sad cryani.gif ...
It was him who made so I registered at gtaf, and I just LOVED his work.
How old was he?
We just have to make something so we always will remember him.

Words can't describe it..
Even though me and him never talked, I had always admired his skills and the way he helped people.. cryani.gif

I really think some kind of tribute should be made for him

My condolences to his family. Rest in peace Odie.

My first words were "holy sh*t".

Altrough i didn't know odie so well when the gta3 and vc modding started up we did exchange some pms after his return when he updated his myriad islands lots
and released another mansion lot for sub-island, the last pms went around a tool
that would import one huge radar-image and slice it and update in the img archive, his last reply about the tool and san andreas PC release:

QUOTE (Odie May 11 2005 @ 18:15)
Have i answered this PM?!?! Sorry if not...

ok, i can wait, its only for a private project (for now) and its not so urgent to export a new radar for it, but its fun :-)

I Guess only one month an the forum will explode, like before two years on release of VC biggrin.gif


R.I.P. i hope you find ethernal peace, you will be missed sad.gif

Wow. Just, wow. I can't say much about knowing him personally, but I have always watched his work and what he's done from the sidelines. I remember every one of those mods coming out, the work you did was awesome, and.. Ah, there's not much to say, you were a huge influence for too many people.

RIP Odie, you're missed already. Condolences to your family. sad.gif

R.I.P. odie, you were and perhaps you still are the best map modder out there. Too bad to see you go. I was struck and in disbelieve when i heared the news... and i still am.

I didn't know him personally, but his mods were excellent. Always a shame when somebody passes away.

R.I.P Odie, and best wishes to your family and friends.

I think this is my first post in the modding part of GTA for more than a year, and that's only because I remember ODIE, and his work.

And no matter who you were and you did, there is always something sad in your losing.

I'm a very anti-spirital person, so I know ODIE can't hear me. But at least, I can tell that all the members here share great respect for the man.

wow. i barely knew him, we exchanged a few pm's, the last one i sent him was on his birthday. i was saddened then, as he briefly informed me of some of the troubles in his personal life sad.gif
His work was the inspiration for many, including myself. and even as i type this, he has pinned topics in the map boards, that are useful to this day, demonstrating his mastery of gta map modding.

Condolences to his family who have suffered a greater loss than we can imagine.
Odie wherever you are, if you can read this, we'll always miss you man. godspeed.

I remember the day when Dagett, a very good friend of mine and me first installed ODIEs Stunt-Park for GTA3. We were just like .... WOW ... something like that is possible!!!! I think we spent hours in the halfpipe just to figure how to drive that thing ... and finally, I think for over a year we did nothing else than figuring out how to make new maps, using the moomaper etc. When his Interstate Highway came out it was the same again ... we just couldn't let our fingers from that and messed around with all of his stuff so we had to reinstall the game several times because we screw everything up.

I think I write too much ....
all I wanted to say is that his stuff had such a big impact on us and inspired us to so much more!

Thank you ODIE!

Ruhe in Frieden

It is a true testament to the character and ability of ODIE when the modding world which he helped give rise to, comes to a standstill to mourn his passing. Although I never spoke to him, I held the great man in high regard. He was not just a talented map moddeler but also a real innovator in understand the world 3D GTA.

his stunt mod for GTAIII was the first map mod i ever installed in to GTAIII. funny thing is everytime i had to reinstall the game and start over i always made a point to install the stunt mod too.

just liked it alot. smile.gif

anyway i bet hes in a happy place and looking down on everyone useing his mods for sure.

As many here, i didn't know Odie personally, but i did know his work and contribution to our community. It's sad to hear this news and if there is going to be a memorial, i'm in. I never did a lot with map modding, but i did install some of his mods and i certainly also was inspired to model for games because of him.

Steve, when you contact his wife and son, please mention the reactions on this forum and i hope it will be some kind of help to them.

Condolences to his wife and son and those close to him.

Rest in peace Odie.

thats dos sound like a nice idea i hope that the Myriad Islands team might take the thought in to consideration maybe.

it would look nice to have a giant odie dog statue or something if there isnt one already and a sign with some nice words on it. smile.gif

meh.. just a thought i dont mod Myriad Islands so im sure it will be egnored. confused.gif
