With a new member signing up nearly everyday the III era is still getting attention, plus like Deji said in another topic, the older III era games are easier to mod.

 

This means even when V gets released, if any GTA gamer still wants to mod then they're most likely going to have to come back to the III era modding section. icon14.gif

I'm kind of against your point. IV was made on RAGE, and how about V? Most likely also on RAGE. That means, R* is probably going to use similar file hierarchy, making V "already discovered". And IV is also getting much of it's secrets unlocked.

 

 

I'd say III Era will die, but not yet.

Deji explained:

 

As the new GTA's are on a new engine, designed by R* themselves, it's gonna be much harder to reverse engineer and thus mod efficiently. With RenderWare, we had access to the engine SDK (albeit illegally), which helps in many ways, not just with coding but with understanding file formats for other mods. And with the engine, a large team of skilled modders could probably pull off recreating GTASA in the same engine, like has been done with Half Life ('cept the team behind that ported it to a different engine). With RAGE, we'd have to recreate the whole damn engine based on reverse engineered pseudocode. It wouldn't even be worth trying.

 

 

And older games are generally just easier to mod. SA was quite low-tech even for it's time (which was a whopping 8 years ago, we've had a lot of time to figure it out and there's still a lot to discover), but it was pretty packed. It's much easier to reconstruct a sandcastle than a fort. And the GTA IV is much more well-constructed and fortified. Expect GTA V to be the Fort Knox of GTA's (hopefully it's not empty though and has a recreation room with a pool table and hidden doors, unlike GTA IV).

 

Everyone has their opinions, I just agree with Deji tounge.gif

i don't agree iii modding section will dead because i am sure 95 % People here playing GTA San Andreas & GTA Vice City which thoes was the best for me , GTA SA & VC & III is the games which more modding than GTA IV and of course GTA V also i don't thinks there modder will left gta v modding because it will be very difficulty ..

Did you Know dozingoff.gif

our best modder working on GTA SA and GTA VC No GTA IV like :

( Fastman92 , Zaz , Deji , SilentPL , badboy )

If you ask me I will agree with Mk-1 that III Era coding can never die ..Still most of the modders are currently waiting for GTA V to be released soon. But I don't think any GTA game can replicat the modding level which GTA San Andreas gave..GTA IV Doesn't give so much modding but if you see GTA SA it is the best game which offers so much of modding..

I don't think there will be any "emergence" since III modding probably reached its peak around the time SA was released. But as long as there's still interest in these older games then modding won't die either. Y'all folks need to stick around. wink.gif

Think SA has broken records in continuation of modding? Half-Life was released in '98 and it remains one of the most recognisably modded available:

http://funambulism.com/2011/05/top-of-the-mods/#post-1988

 

It can be argued that SA has waay more than 162 mods, but in terms of mod proportions the list puts things in perspective.

Sorry but I don't agree with this list because gta sa have much mod of Half-Life 2 .

Look at GTAinside :

 

Skins (2721)Weapons (375)Cars (6048)Mods (3264)

 

 

And other things like plane , trucks , etc ... yawn.gif

As I said, the figures are arguable. But SA has lots of very small mods, wheras the mods for Half Life are generally bigger in scale. And in terms of mods nothing is bigger in scale than Counter Strike. So just have faith in a ratio.

This isn't a competition is it? Aren't we into modding because we want to extend the enjoyment of games past what they originally provided? tounge2.gif

So you thiink it won't emerge once again have you seen this: http://www.gtaforums.com/index.php?showtop...st&p=1061731571

I think there is still many things which can be done to emerge the III Era coding & I m pretty sure the guys who love GTA Sa or GTA III or GTA VC will agree with me for sure...

It won't emerge any more, but it won't die soon either. San Andreas can still survive for the next 3-5 years, but it will be over after that time. All big discoveries are already made and the only things that still need to be discovered are hard coded. The only reason that the III era games are still alive is because of IV, SAMP/MTA, DYOM and because they are good games.

 

@arijitsen

That was discovered a long time ago see The Hidden Text FAQ.

Rockstar games will stop on GTA V

I highly doubt that, technology is advancing at quite a fast rate.

 

Who knows maybe in a year or two Rockstar could have come up with an even better engine that V is on and create an even better GTA.

This will carry on getting better and better, GTA will never die (Saints row might wink.gif )

Perhaps but Rockstar Games Used Rage Engine for all his Games , anyways isn't bad but Capcom Used MT Framework the name of the engine and MT means "Multi-Thread", "Meta Tools" and "Multi-Target" .

That engine is very better of rage engine .

But i am sure R* Will change the engine if that will make GTA VI sigh.gif

"Multi-Target"

And that's exactly why the rage engine is one of the best, because it's designed exclusively for and by R* games.

III Modding ERA will not die, many players are having average computer which can not run GTA IV or they find more fun in GTA SA because of its desing and some interesting mods. And yeah, its easy to start modding with simple game as GTA San Andreas.

The game itself can be changed in any way possible but there are only a small majority of coders out There.

Actually San Andreas gives the largest amount of freedom to mod which is not available in any other games ..Even if GTA V Gets released I am pretty sure that it cannot break the records of GTA San Andreas mods...& therefore III Era coding will hopefully never die..
