As we are all well too aware, Rockstar have begun their travels down the road to the land of non-creativity that is non-custom-emblem land.

I'm here to make sure we make that road as bumpy, broken and impossible to cross as is possible.

It appears custom emblems are being removed due to porn, and nothing to do with copyright issues of using logo.

We ALL need to complete four tasks in order to resolve this issue:

1. DEBATE. We must discuss the issues at hand to drum up interest and anger and support, as well as brain storming solutions. This is already being done in Giantgiants thread so if you've posted in that thread you can tick this box off.

2. SUPPORT THE TICKET. Actions speak louder than words, and I've gone and combined 'em both. Support this ticket for a reversal of Rockstars decision:

https://support.rock...s-Crew-Emblems-

3. SHOW THEM WHAT THEY'RE MISSING. Ie, bombard them (politely) with pictures of awesome cars with custom logos. Show your creativity, your imagination, show that GTA freedom spirit.

Here's an example of what you'll NEVER see on the GTA streets again if WE don't take action:

pB6NB1K.jpg

hcjpwTu.jpg

xwTmppn.jpg

ikFAKqS.jpg

4. STOP THE PORN. As appears to be the main conclusion from discussions thus far, the porn is the problem and the problem is the porn. It you see ANY porn you must REPORT IT IMMEDIATELY. If we the community can be seen to be taking action, Rockstar will see that they don't need too.

Please join me in fulfilling tasks 1-4. Together we can stand up and fight this.

Aye, fight and you may lose. Run, and you'll have freedom... at least a while. And dying with your PS9 many years from now, would you be willin' to trade ALL the sessions, from this session to that, for one chance, just one chance, to come back here and tell Rockstar that they may take our freedom, but they'll never take... OUR EMBLEMS!

They need to let us choose where to place the emblem.

No can't do OP, I need them sexy emblems.

 

It is a pity though, those are some really cool pictures, especially the coca-cola one.

I doubt they bring the exploit back. As much as I liked the exploit it is much better from their point of view than to review every single emblem and report for adult emblems and copyright.

I've really been wanting to post maybe an Assassin's Creed emblem or maybe the green "LS" hat from San Andreas. But no, R* doesn't want the creativity to show up.

Sexy definitely but it's a voluptuous line between sexy and porn.

And cheers re the pics :D

GTA V (and consequently Online) is an 18-rated game. Porn should be allowed.

It's just a case of R* catering to the teens and younger who shouldn't really be playing the game.

This is pathetic. Removing emblems because 10 year olds can't keep it in their pants? How about doing better moderation?

This is a must, I'm tired of seeing the horrible 8-bit like emblems from Rockstar's custom emblem maker. It's something that should'nt even be top priority this game is rated 18+ so technically the inapropriate emblems should be allowed anyway.

Actually I am pretty sure they removed that feature not because they dislike creativity but only because of the complaints they received about copied logos or marks and inappropriate pictures.

 

It was more of a privilege rather than a right. Atleast they left us the emblem maker. There are plenty of youtube videos that could show you how to make an awesome emblem but most of the people seems too lazy to try them out.

Pretty much this. People need to remember that it was an exploit. They even acknowledged it themselves that they were aware of it and didn't plan to do anything unless necessary. Don't mask it saying it's censoring creativity.

Only way I'd see it coming back, which I would love, is a feature to import a picture as emblem. Then it doesn't work until approval from social club moderation. But then the issue would be that it would cost to have people looking at every single emblem.

This isn't Call of Duty Black Ops the emblem maker should be better if we're supposed to put it on a car that we spend 100k to upgrade and not on a gun.

 

And it's not that much of a priviledge anymore, since they removed the custom emblems the've left us with practically the crappy ones that are given when you first create a crew not to mention the fact that the crew emblem option for cars is not used anymore at least not to my knowledge.

 

No one wants to spend 1hr+ on making an emblem using the crappy tools that Rockstar forces us to use just because a couple of kiddies want to make their emblem a pic of a naked man/woman. I for one wanted to make an emblem of a flaming Nitrous bottle for my street racing crew but that became an incredibly hard/Impossible task when I learned I had to use the crappy emblem maker Rockstar leaves us with.

 

Also the option to put an emblem on a car costs either $25,000 or $50,000 if you ask me that is just extortion if we can't make ones that please us the most.

F-Zero GX (the hardest fastest racing game known to man on the Gamecube) had a good system for placing logos on custom ships. You could zoom in and out to change the size of the logo to cover the whole ship. Boring* should add that, and let us poor non-higher version Android users create it within the actual LSC on the actual fecking game, not some pointless app or on a PC.

I dunno. You might want to try this test to confirm your time machine worked for certain.

 

OT: Best of luck with that. Take heart that you got to keep them longer than R* intended.

Good luck with that lad, but I don't think it will stop them.

 

To be honest, if they moved the Emblem Creator to console, I wouldn't mind making my own.

Great game great point.

Kinda but there's a lot of people affected.


Does anyone know of it's still possible to create custom logos somehow?

I only ever had a Rockstar created emblem for my own crew of friends Battlefield 1943.

The custom emblems issue wasn't really something I would miss until I joined the
Sonic Theft Auto crew and having my childhood game hero Sonic the Hedgehog's
picture on my cars/clothes, I can't read the ticket at work as R* site is blocked
so will read after work.

I hope that there isn't a blankent removal as will miss that emblem in game.

Will add a pic or two after work.

So what happened? they removed the ability to upload a crew emblem? I never used them as it was a waste of money putting them on cars but I thought perhaps one day I'd like to make one to suit a special car. Like I mentioned before if I was so inclined I should be able to put a giant penis on the door of my car since everyone has them hanging out inside the game anyway. It's a R18 game Rockstar have made, they need to stop being a bunch of pussies and get back to learning how to code and fix the freezes :).

You have a good point there. But the main point is that the R* social club is rated T+ I think. So It's understandable that they disallow hacked SVGs.

 

It's a shame though. Not many people are good with the editor. The editor just needs a "grouping" function like in Forza to work well. That and the Forza painting community.

I would be more inclined to belive it's a copyright issue over porn. Brands don't want to be associated with this game hence the reason for the vehicle name and look change from the original. I don't think coca cola would want pictures of people banging hookers with their logo shown floating around the Internet. And as for all this talk about creativity... That's the lamest sh*t I've heard. You copied and pasted someone else's graphic they designed. I do support custom emblems and porn doesn't bother me but I don't think rockstar wants the headache of policing trademarks for every crew emblem submitted.

has rockstar stated the emblem exploit was patched because of copyright?

does anyone know if the SVG's affect the game at all?

what about people that don't know how to upload SVG's? should they be left with crappy emblems because they don't know how to do the exploit?

maybe they got sick of people asking them how to do the EXPLOIT, so they put an end to it.

emblems on cars is kinda silly. they look great with $ rims, tho...
