but GTA4 and GTA5 are the SAME IP. So whats the problem? there is no rule broken.
OpenIV does not want to risk it.
i personally think there has been a huge misunderstanding of the modding policy though.
I agree with you there. They had an issue with RDR V because it was a different title. We have had a tone of GTA map conversions. Rockstar and Take Two didn't give a sh*t about those.
But there is one I wonder about. GTA Underground.
Remember folks, it is always about money. They are probably going to be remastering RDR and GTA IV. GTA IV's 10th Anniversary is around the corner. I'm a little doubtful that it would get a mobile version (if it did, it would require a powerful phone). But since IV is in the HD era, there could be an expansion for GTA Online. If so, we will just load the map in SP using mod menus. lol. Just like all of the map changes that have been made for Online.
Also, don't be surprised if there are people working on one or more Liberty City ports as we speak. Once they are satisfied with their results, they may be released to the public. If Take Two shuts them down, it will be too late. Strauss may have a temper tantrum and break something in his mansion/penthouse or on his yacht though. lol
