Okay folks, the first thing you need to understand and always keep in mind:
Rockstar are AGAINST modding. So far they did everything they can do prevent it or make it harder.
You know it best, you are a mod tool developer, GooD-NTS. Godspeed in your efforts.
Also, how would you read this statement now? I read it this way:
"The priority for us is maintaining the integrity of GTA Online and making sure that nothing detracts from that experience... (considering that Online and Singleplayer use same files) ...We will be working to protect that environment and making sure nothing has a negative effect on the overall community,("we don't give a damn about modfrienliness, as long our Online isn't compromised"?) but we look forward to seeing and hearing about the experiences PC gamers have once the game is in their hands."(PC gamers+modding community may get their hands on modding the files, we're pretty okay with that)
You know, when it means if i have to choose between mods and Online (by Online refusing to work due to modified files), i will go for mods.
