Linking GTAGarage mods to Mod Showroom topics

Recommended Posts

Suction Testicle Man

Greetings GTA modders, as some of you starting new topics in the Mod Showroom may have noticed, you are now able to 'link' these topics to a mod you have submitted on GTAGarage. This feature is only available to the sub-forums of the Mod Showroom, and is designed to allow you to take advantage of the free and reliable mod hosting available at GTAGarage without losing the comment and criticism provided by the forums. Existing topics can also have mods linked to them if the topic creator edits the first post of the topic and selects the desired mod from the list.


Related things to take note of:

  • Currently all submitted mods, files and screens on GTAGarage require approval by a moderator (which usually takes a maximum of 24 hours). Once approved, files and screenshots will appear in a designated area at the bottom of the first post of a linked topic. More information on this is available on the Submit page at GTAGarage.
  • A linked GTAGarage mod will also have an additional link added to its page, encouraging users to post in the associated topic at GTAF.
  • You may only link one GTAGarage mod with one topic, and vice versa.


This feature has partly been introduced to combat an influx of mods hosted at file sharing websites such as megaupload.com and rapidshare.com. The free solutions offered by many of these sites are designed for transfers of files between a select amount of users in a short amount of time. These download links will soon expire after posting, rendering the Mod Showroom archives useless to those browsing the forums in the future. Considering the ease and availability of mod hosting solutions that we and others now provide, and that these external solutions effectively equate to a mod being released 'by email' or to instant messaging contacts, any links at risk of expiring are now considered counterproductive and will be removed.

This functionality is currently missing since the recent board software upgrade. It will be reimplemented in the future, and thread/mod links made before the software upgrade will not be lost.
