About Odie...

Recommended Posts

GM Dude

I never met the guy, nor did I ever exchange PMs with him.

 

However, because of his contribution to the modding scene, I feel that we truly have lost a vital part of the whole operation sad.gifsad.gif.

 

R.I.P. Odie, and may God bless you.

Most people didn't know the guy, and I haven't tried out any of his mods, nor do I know anything he has done. Not to offend anyone, but I could give a rats ass. Too bad he had to die, but I'm sure MANY other modders have died, their family just didn't feel they needed to tell you guys about him.

 

I think you people (that didn't even know the guy) need to just shut up and get over it. As for the people that did know him, hope you aren't offended by this.

I just find all these new people saying "OMG!! Some one who mods died?!! WTF?!?! I'm so sadd, boo hoo" is f*cking stupid and ridiculous.

The difference is ODIE was quite the inspiration for people. First map mods for GTA3 (I think?) GTA Berlin, lots of work on Myriad Islands, he connected with so many people in so many ways.

You're right, SeaNorris, he made the first custom models ever for an 3D GTA and was and continues to be a source for inspiration. A true asset...

A very old topic and about a month late but I feel this needs to be said.

 

Yes the boohoo attitude is not very becoming but as SeaNorris said he was a very large part of the community. He broke new ground with the first 3d models/pathedits/2dfx mods, which now don't look all that impressive (btw the first gta3 mod was Homersimpsons bridge). At the time though the map mods were mostly just a bunch of ipl editing, he made new models with working lights!! smile.gif

 

Personally, He also answered a bunch of goofy noob Q.'s that I sent him about maps. Thats what got me started in all the mods, Odie even went as far to host a few of my first crudy ipl map mods on his own stuntpark.de site (I think thats it, been a while) From what I knew of him he was a really great guy, and I can only aspire to produce things as great as he did in this goofy lil hobby of ours.

Sorry about the bump admins

Does anyone know what killed him...

Steve said so long ago, friend, that Odie's family asks he not go into details and so forth publicly.

 

May we all just hope that Fun was the bringer of eternity, and nothing sinister.

 

Seeing this topic here, and reading the first page again... Took me back. Way back. Something must also be said for the surviving, and also the future, now present.

 

This community lost a great contributor and inspiration, and since then life has moved on. I cannot speculate the state of his wife or the rest of his family, but I can say something about the family here, at GTAForums, namely the editing section.

 

People have come and gone, and we have seen many faces, those of us who have been around for a little while. We've seen some real jerks get tossed, and some genuinely cool people who made bad decisions as well. And further, we've seen each and every person who joined this scene and tried after us go from n00b to decent releases, all from the ground work of this community's most notable figures. Odie is not alone as a great person to all the people who share this passion for a game that never should have embraced "playground" further than it's gameplay structure.

 

It was through the rewarded curiosity and dedication of a lot of folks, from GTA1 all the way up, that made this Forum's place in our worlds what it is today. I want to take this moment to shine on Steve-M. I think he should receive the first annual GTA Editor's Lifetime Achievement Award, or something to that effect. There are so many people who contribute vastly. Still active major-contributors to devlopment and the GTA community today are Delfi (you newer folks know him as JernejL), Spooky, REspawn, Seeman, Ashdexx (new folks, that's DexX), the list really does go on and on. Ceedj revolutionalized this scene by introducing an app to create machinima with the rwGTA3 engine. So many areas, and so many feats, all passionately pursued with, I like to believe, Art in mind and love for this series.

 

Steve-M though. We spoke somewhat frequently for a brief period at the time you posted this topic. I was inspired by you in a lot of ways. From countries apart, you tought me more than things GTA related. All of this, at the release of SA. When I first came to fix my advanced options crash (which took until Jacob released a damned memory trainer, no less than months later lol!), this community was booming. You were all anticipating SA. SA was the new frontier. It certainly was not the be the "Final Build" in our hearts and minds.

 

Thank you. That's just me, the people, speaking.

suction testicl man, a moderator requested more and more evidence for thuglords death, and continuesly made fun out of it, and evern posted fake facts, he did not post who or were he got thuglord or thuglords cousins ip, and he posted the ip in public forum in another. i was told be wheelman that it is tasteless to ask for more evidence when the people who posed it knew him in real life. i was told not to ask for evidence but this was needed for chiekeba aka thuglord. his family and friends reported it, but no one wold believe them. i wold like to complain about this unfairnes at the way peple deal with thig such as death. my friend olugbengima, who resides in niger, knows that the family do exist and tehat its not fake. his cousins. whom they said to be same perosn arived at funeral today, which is just starting as we speak. why is this the fact? odie was beter tahn another person. pleas reply and explain. why can i not ask for evidence whn they all wanted more evidence in the topic? will i have to sell story to press or whet am i to do?

Apart from the rather tasteless reason for the bump:

Modders are no 'stars' and thus you won't find any evidence of his death when searching on google or in a newspaper. He just wasn't important enough.

there is no offence to odie family meant here

 

 

 

The following reason was given for this verbal warning:

 

 

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Verbal warning for tasteless and pointless bumping of a thread. Why should there be any more evidence of his death other than the confirmation from his friends? Many modders and long term members here are friends and communicate in the real world away from the forums. Think twice before posting this kind of insensitive stuff again.

ok, but can me also point out the 'tastleless' posts in te gta iv guy topic and rip thuglord topic. i no someone who new thuglord and his family. my friends mother is friends with the passed away thuglord. his girlfriend and kid would be very disapointed and upset to kno they father and boyfriend was not being believed.

Look, the first thing is we knew Odie a long time, and he was more popular in the community, because he had a lot of things done before his death. The other thing is, the starter of this topic is well known too, and there is one more thing. No one could doubt it. We asked for evidences because everybody could come here and say someone is died in the community. Klax 187 is a nearly unknown member of the forums, so i couldn't believe him, at first i did, but when i started to think i said it can't be true. Suction Testicle Man wrote a post what cant be doubt too, so i think u should stop this idiotic flamewar here. Odie's death happened a long time ago, and u don't need to be disrespectful of him.
