OpenIV discontinued for being Illegal and Zmodeler3 how?

@Oleg

OpenIV has been discontinued because it is illegal to do modding, but then zmodeler3 as the situation will be for GTA5.

That's really sad news I have to confess. Haven't seen this discussion before you pointed out. Well, on my side ZMod is not much related related to discussed problem as it deals with some unpacked files and creates other files you could mess with later. The point where problem arise is feeding the game with modded .rpf files bringing modded content into the game. I suppose this IS what bothers T2 guys, not the chance of models being explored or converted by third-party 3D packages at the moment.

To my observation, it looks like R* are going to release paid Liberty City DLC in some time and that's what caused them to act like this. I doubt mods installation and usage is of any harm to R* and T2, until it comes to the question of getting more money from players.

To your question: I've got no plans to abandon .yft/.ydd/.ydr Import/Export support in ZModeler to the moment. The problem is abandoned OpenIV project as we can end up with game installed and no chance to put modded files into.

But if T2 asked openIV to abandon the project, you can also ask zmodeler to do the same.

OpenIV opens the game so that we can have access to the whole platform, zmodeler gives the option to modify these fecheiros that we have access via openIV.

Oleg did not adandones the project Zmodeler, without him we could not modify the game to our liking.

With this the T2 / Rockstars only has to lose, because we bought the game to have mods to our liking.

Hello Oleg,

do you see any realistic chance that another team will be able to export and import GTA V .yft/.ydd/.ydr files?

In my view the modding community needs an open source GTA V file manager.

Guys, as long as Rockstar does not suddenly change their file format we are all in the clear. OpenIV still works and will work with new GTA updates. It's just that the tool itself will not be ditributed anymore and won't recieve any upgrades.
At the moment the question is whether Scripthook V gets updated or not, but even without it you can play and mod the last patch version (special vehicle circuit patch) just fine.

Exactly everything works as it has worked so far.

And as already said, only OpenIV will no longer be officially distributed by your team nor will it be updated.

Who has openIV it will always work fine.

Regarding Script Hook v, this yes if n is updated is that we are done, because many mod or even all mods will stop working.

So until I get the update of Scritp Hook V nothing to update the game to the latest version or else I have the game replicated in 2 folders

If you didn't update to gunrunners, ScriptHookV still works.

Exact, ZM3 is not illegal. The problem is:
Without Open IV, ZM3 how do it take the .yft/.ydd/.ydr GTA V files?...

According to you after all this T2 will not change anything to block Open IV, with the upcoming update? ...
And without updating it can not even play in SP.
(Of course, if it use crack then it can do it all, also Zm3 free... :x )

You can keep using openiv at your own risk. I personally don't use mods folder, everytime i play modded game, internet is off. I have clean game with which i update SC. They have no way of knowing that I use anything else but original game because my modded game with openiv never goes online.
---------------
If scripthook will not get updated, You have to keep using last version of game where scripthook works only for modding and back it up in case you have to one day reinstall.
---------------
What would help us, if we would know what exact files except executables we have to have to downgrade game version. So we don't have to backup 60 gigs.

It was not a win, nothing has been won yet, everything is still the same.
It was just a retina update.

It's hope so far, and even it will come back, it will be either because it's in their interest, or maybe because they are gonna try to play nice again. We are totally in their mercy.

Open IV Updates were blocked.
Now there is an update, that removes the invitation to uninstall Open IV.
Something has changed, we will see what is short. :)
