To all my fans thank you very much for all of your support! It's great to know that all of the long hours and hard work that goes into these mods is very much appreciated and brings a lot of enjoyment to everyone using them.

QUICK UPDATE:  With the knowledge of GTA V pretty much a lock coming to the PC sometime in 2014, I've decided to suspend all my PED modding projects.  This will come as a disappointment to some, I apologize for that, but I have to look into the future and be realistic with the limited time I have for modding.  To me it doesn't make sense to work on the same peds or similar peds that will release in a PC version of GTA V.  Furthermore, this will allow me to concentrate completely on some joint and solo vehicle projects.  The goal is to bring the best vehicle mods for GTA IV found anywhere.  I'm working with some of the biggest names in the community to try to set the bar in the community and bring you guys the best mods we possibly can!  I hope to be releasing some things for the community in the very near future so stay tuned!

Also search on Google and Youtube for more tutorials on how to use 3ds Max to create your own models (this is how I learned). There are MANY detailed explanations on that program and they can do a much better job of teaching you then I could.
