No, no, no, I cant believe this. This is a black day in modding history.
@GooD-NTS and your team: Thanks for all the effort and everything you guys meant for the modding community.
WAIT! How about instead of modding gta 5 we instead mod gta 4. That game hasn't had a good mod in along time, and it'll drive players away gta 5 and online. That will get there attention!
Except that won't? GTA4 and 5 are different games with different capabilities. The GTA4 version of RAGE is much more limited. Besides which, GTA4 is also an older game and not likely to attract enough users to make a size-able impact.
OpenIV can still be used, and it's latest build supports most every file format in GTA4 and EFLC. Just download, install, update, and click "uninstall later" on the pop-up that appears. Speaking of download, I would highely suggest people grab it from GTA5 Mods while they can, in the case of its removal.
