Thanks everyone for the support.

As some of you would know, Take Two just took down OpenIV mod, which is an important tool for GTA V mod development. Previously Rockstar (GTA V publisher) had no problem with users using their game models to be ported to other games. But given the recent move from Take Two, I have decided to remove my projects off Github. I will keep this thread and my site alive as I would continue porting and editing GTA vehicles on Flightgear.

This might be a great opportunity for you to try modelling a Car on your own... :)

We will use GTA vehicles as a template, but we make heavy modifications on them (a bit like coachbuilders) so they are our vehicles. Rockstar does the same thing too (they make a few changes so they don’t need to pay license fee to actual manufacturers).

I think that would mean you can't release them as GNU GPL compatible. It is certainly not in the spirit of Open Source in my opinion.

That's what they are doing. I am doing something entirely different. Once I am done with this project, I will show it here. Definitely GPL compatible :)

Decided to give up on that idea. Time to introduce real life vehicles to FG

Hi,

I really respects your work, cars are look like amazing. But maybe it is a good idea to create a separate "folder" on the forum then Aircraft? Dedicated to the cars. Cars are not an aircraft :) Admins / moderators?

Best regards,
Lukasz

Well, why can't you use OpenIV anyways? I still use it when I mod GTA. Just click the Uninstall Later option.
Waste of time. Goodbye forever.

I'd say the volume of traffic concerning cars, ships, boats, submarines etc. are not large enough for that - and to the program FlightGear (or its physics engines) they are all the same as "aircraft" anyway.
