Title: Rockstar Games and Take Two taking down "GTA" mods
Post by: loquendero6231 on September 23rd, 2021, 05:42 PM
It's nothing new that Rockstar Games has begun to remove mods from the Internet, one of the biggest examples would be Grand Theft Auto UNDERGROUND, which was constantly being updated.

Along with other mods, do you think that modifications such as SA-MP and VC-MP are at risk from this policy change?

Trying to predict what R*/Take-Two will do is pointless. If the trilogy remaster rumor is real and they want to add multiplayer to it then yeah they might sic their lawyers on us too.

I also think we're in a better position than the mods that R* has already shut down. We didn't sign a EULA to play Vice City on PC, and unlike re3/reVC we're not trying to "recreate the game," so we can't be used to undermine sales or facilitate piracy either. Personally I'm not going to worry about it until T2 sends a takedown, and even then I might weigh my legal options before rolling over.

SA:MP is much more alive than VC:MP tho

Them russians and romanians still playing that game 24/7 lmao

But yeah the SA:MP forum is dead for ages (and some SA:MP community members accuse the developer for attempting to kill SA:MP)
