The joining of Rockstar and OpenIV developers could be the best thing to come out of this whole mess... I'm staying optimistic on this one.

SUPPORT AND STAND WITH ROCKSTAR AGAINST HACKING/CHEATING ONLINE
THANK YOU ROCKSTAR...
In a statement, Rockstar has said that they are in talks with OpenIV creator, and sure enough there is a new update to the tool today. I in no way endorse or support any form of cheating/hacking online, not just in this game, but all games, and those that do spoil it for the very large majority so let this episode be a good example, because it's not just Rockstar you need to worry about now, it's a very large modding community that will be helping to sniff out the cheating/hacking websites, plugins and dll files.
I CALL OUT TO ALL THE HONEST MODDERS OUT THERE TO STAND WITH ROCKSTAR ON THERE FIGHT AGAINST HACKERS/CHEATERS AND REPORT ANY SITES AND/OR FILES THAT ALLOW AN UNFAIR ADVANTAGE WHILST PLAYING ONLINE... WE OWE THEM THAT MUCH FOR THEIR SUPPORT AND UNEXPECTED TURNAROUND ON OPENIV.
Thank you... And happy (honest) modding
RE: OpenIV shutdown // Official statement of Rockstar Games
After reading Rockstar's statement I'm wondering if my original suspisions were correct, that they're scheming to somehow make profit from the modding community, they can't do that if OpenIV is around giving the community the option to do it for nothing.
RE: The end of OpenIV
This could very well come back and haunt them, at least the OpenIV team worked against modding, if a new breed of hackers decide to take on the job, Rockstar/Take Two... Whoever is responsible, may end up wishing they'd just left well alone. Once I can no longer mod, I will be deleting it permanently. Thank you so much to the OpenIV team for their years of hard work and giving me so much fun.
