Rockstar explains GTA V OpenIV cease and desist letter

Grand Theft Auto V

What would seem undeniable is that the modding community has extended the lifespan of finely-aged games, such as Grand Theft Auto IV, by giving gamers new ways to play them. Indeed, the game's players have been able to get everything from a playable Hulk mod through to a fan-made co-op story mode. The devs behind the popular Grand Theft Auto 5 modding tool known as OpenIV notified the public about a cease and desist letter they received earlier this month from Take-Two Interactive in regards to their work.

The gaming community knows full-well that Take-Two isn't very fond of modding for their games.

Mayweather vs. McGregor is Official!
It is reported that each fighter could earn $100m (£78.4m ) from the bout, which would be one of the richest in boxing history. It is unclear whether it was a mistake or whether McGregor did it on objective , as he is known to provoke his opponents.

The OpenIV team says that while they could fight the decision in court, the time this would take means a legal battle just isn't worth it.

Rockstar has previously been on good terms with the modding community, but they have in the past warned that some mods could break users' games. Its developer claims the reason behind the shuttering is a cease and desist letter from GTA publisher Take-Two Interactive. Yes, we can go to court and yet again prove that modding is fair use and our actions are legal.Yes, we could.

More Alleged iPhone 7s, iPhone 8 Front & Back Panels Leaked
A Foxconn insider claimed earlier this month that the iPhone 7S and 7S Plus would stick to the unibody aluminum design. The iPhone 7S and 7S Plus are expected to have the same design as the iPhone 7 and 7 Plus, except for the glass back.

Yes, we could. But we decided not to.

"Take-Two's actions were not specifically targeting single player mods". The OpenIV group said in a message, "We feared that this day would come..." The parent company of Rockstar has sent a Cease and Desist letter to a popular modding device to shut it down. Spending time just to restore status quo is really unproductive, and all the money in the world cant compensate the loss of time.

FDNY: High carbon monoxide levels in basement fire
It has been confirmed that the fire was caused by a broken flue pipe that leaked exhaust fumes into the basement of a restaurant. The meters measure up to 1,000 parts per million, enough to "render you unconscious very, very quickly", Leonard said.

We've contacted both GooD-NTS and Rockstar for further comment, and we'll update if we hear anything back. Majority thought this happened just because Rockstar had planned to bring Red Dead Redemption to the PC before the release of Red Dead Redemption 2. "Many programmers/game developers start off by modding games".
