Then again...look at the modding that BF2 had and how important it was to the game's community and then look what Dice did with BF3...makes me sick.

So only time will tell.

It only makes you sick because you think it's about forcing DLC sales when it's really not.

I am sure it isn't hurting them.

It's neither helping nor hurting them to not have mod tools. What it boils down to is that it's not a priority.

I actually thought it was mainly due to them not wanting to give access to the server code since any mod needs to be on the server as well. If people get the server code then they can pirate the game.

It's a combination of things. There's a few hurdles they'd have to get over in order to release mod tools. Realistically, we'll probably get a map-editor before we see any full-fledged mod tools. They would just have to build the tool and figure out a way to distribute the content safely along with a few other things. It might happen, it might not. Probably not for BF4. We'll have to wait to see what happens in the future.

Anywho, we're getting a little off-topic here. tongue.gif

These microtransactions are purely for multiplayer where everything is probably unlocked from the start.

Un related but

If you want big money;

HEAVILY invest into Ammu nation, Fruit and Los Santos Customs NOW.

I've made over 3.5 million in the time i've owned GTA V (In those stocks alone)

INVEST NOW. Trust me, it's been working, they will never decline, people will always buy Ammo, Car upgrades and the Phone usage. I wouldn't be to sure about the internet EyeFind but you can chose what you want. thumb.gif

EDIT: By HEAVILY I MEAN HEAVILY.

EDIT 2: I have HEAVILY invested with all 3 characters.

Don't have any issues really with this:

If you want faster/better = PAY. If not toil away! I just won't pay myself not 'cause of some "issue" with it BUT because i paid when i handed the cash over at the counter:thumb:............... WHEN YOU GET THE PC ONE OUT THE DOOR!!biggrin.gif

If it doesn't form some sort of "two tier" class in the game and it remains balanced good for them. I have watched the lads play the 360 version @720p and it is a great improvement over the "chugging" mess that was GTA IV. Looking forward to my 1080p "master gaming race" PC edition and will fork over the bucks when it's out without any moaning. If for nothing else than the sort of "fun" you only get with a GTA game!

Thanx.

Meh, I think Micro-transactions and mod discussions go hand in hand, but we should focus on GTA5 I suppose...

Though has any one heard if we can host the multiplayer servers? If not, I would assume that GTA5 would be locked done just like BF3 is. It would also be rather hard to implement these micro-transactions if the servers were not centralized.
