Dang, I didn't even know of the guy until today, but I'm almost at a loss for words as to what happened. It just wouldn't feel right if I browsed the topic and didn't send out my condolences to him, so R.I.P. Odie. sad.gif

Wow... this is something i cant believe, the first ever mod i used was one made by Odie, his mods also brought me to this forum.

Farewell Odie you shall be missed dearly, and good luck to the family, they need all the support they can get.

I'm new here, but I've seen Odie's mods and I must say they're just amazing. I'm very sorry for his wife and son to have this happen to them.

Rest in peace.

I'm sorry I can't write a more meaningful post but I'm lost for words.

I never knew Odie unfortunately. But i have seen and used his work he was a great modder. My first mod i ever used was his stunt park mod for GTA3.

All that we can hope is that he died peacefully.

You will be sorely missed.

R.I.P. Odie.

Throughout the whole of the GTA Community you could post the name Odie and people would know of him, his talents, his creativity and the sheer amount of work he put into the modding scene. But most of all you could speak to him on a normal/personal level, he was down to earth, open and very knowledgeable in what he had to say whether it was regarding forum interests or other activities. He brought a sense of uplift to the community and from his work you can clearly see he never ceased to amaze. The amount of people inspired by Odie’s work can be clearly seen. I remember once talking to illspirit and mentioned Odie, people often say to various members of this community “you should work for R*^”. If there ever was a few guy’s to do so, I believe Odie would have fit there perfectly.

Along with very few others he set the bar for GTA modding, and as you said Steve he was one of the best map modders the GTA scene has ever had. He was a legend by all accounts around the scene and someone who will be truly missed by many.

My condolences go out to his wife and son. Rest in peace Odie.

This is what he deserves.

He's right. Can we do this?

Adding on to what GT-1 said, I was delighted the day I found out that not only had GTA3 finally been cracked, but that modding was well under way. As I searched for mods to play with to get a feel for how things were done, there were a few names that stood out above the others. And current subject matter aside, I can honestly say that the name that showed up the most, was ODIE. People who do not even mod know not only of the name, but of the unique quality it brought with it.

I don't know Odie personally or ever had contact with him but I did know at the time a while ago he made some good mods, it's a crying shame he's gone. I hope his family will cope with their loss.

Rest in peace, Odie.

Holy sh*t, I wake up this morning, and I hear about Odie passing away. His works always inspired me, like the intercity highway for GTA3. You will be missed... sad.gif

Just a matter of uploading, back-upping the original one and renaming it.

I also agree, GTANET should use that image for at least a few days to show that we have respect for Odie.

It's really odd because he had just returned to the forums not that long ago and was beginning to get back into his modding stride.

Lets hope some of his work can be recovered and continued in his memory.

RIP man, RIP.

Never actually spoke to him but none the less he provided hours of entertainment to me and probably anyone else who used any of his map mods.

rip ODIE.

I really can't believe i'm reading this thread, i don't even know what to say, i'm in a complete state of shock, Odie was the reason i started modding, he was my benchmark and inspiration, i never got to talk to him but i have so much respect for his work. 38 is too young an age to die i am only 1 year older so this hurts me even more than you will all ever realise.

R.I.P. Odie. you may be gone but i will never forget the inspiration you gave to me.

I think we can see by the way this topic has reached 6 pages in a day how much he will be missed by us all.
