Over the last year or so, I've been 3D printing scale model car parts for my own use. I thought I should make them available to a wider audience, so now I'm selling the parts via my Shapeways store, Maple Leaf Modelworks. This image is a quick mockup of some of the parts I've created so far and and how I envision them being used!

*EDIT*
Apparently Take Two has backed off a little, allowing Open IV to continue distribution, with the caveats that anything that messes with Online or introduces 3rd-party IP (or other Rockstar IP) to the game will invite litigation. That's good...I guess? This little incident definitely highlights how fragile modding is, as a hobby. The fruits of one's labor can be vaporized instantly.

Welp...that's interesting.

I used OpenIV in 2011/2012 to make my '30 Ford Hot Rod mod for GTA IV. It was hard work, took many hours, and was very rewarding in terms of personal satisfaction.
I eagerly anticipated GTA V for years, and when it was released, bought it immediately on PS3.
After playing the game for a while, and seemingly exhausting the various activities possible in the game, I drifted away from it. I have no interest whatsoever in multiplayer, grinding for virtual dollars, or spending hard-earned real cash on expansion packs that don't really contain anything that I actually WANT from the game.

I am, however, still interested in the creative possibilities of modding. The problem is that it takes a lot of time and effort, and I have other rewarding hobbies that demand time and money.

I picked GTA V up again recently, realized I truly HAD become bored with it, and started tossing around the idea of buying it again on PC, for the sole purpose of creating mods for my own entertainment, thus bringing new life to my gaming experience and permitting me to re-engage with the game's world.

I balked at paying full price (again) for a game that is now many years old. Maybe, I thought, I'd wait for a Steam sale.

Looks like I made the right decision to wait...otherwise I'd have a useless (to me) PC copy of GTA V.

I understand Take Two is simply protecting their intellectual property, as they have a right to do. And perhaps they're hoping to inspire players to buy DLC rather than download free mods.

Either way, I'll be over here, exercising my right to keep my damn wallet shut.

The next GTA game would have to be absolutely spectacularly stellar for me to even think of purchasing it.
Maybe the situation will evolve, but for now, I'm thinkin' GTA is pretty much dead to me. Sorry, Rockstar. You made some fun toys :(
