googleplex2010 reacted to Sam in LSPDFR 0.4 - Coming February, 2019
So, it's been a while since we've provided an update on LSPDFR 0.4. As you might've guessed from the title, though, there's a good reason for this... It has taken us a lot of work to get to this point, and in the last couple of months alone we've made hundreds and hundreds of changes. Anyway, here we are - who knows how many months late - but we're here. No riddles, no treasure hunts, no @MSA (at least I'm pretty sure they're not here), but straight to the point! We can now confirm that we'll be releasing LSPDFR 0.4 in February, 2019.
Anyway... with the scary part out of the way, I wanted to take the opportunity to explain ourselves a little. No, @LMS wasn't renditioned to an IAA black site, no I didn't fall victim to the Orbital Cannon, and no... the ghost of @ineseri didn't drive a train into us. Perfectly plausible scenarios given our silence about 0.4 as of late, but we're actually still alive. Instead, we've been pretty busy rushing to the finish line as far as 0.4 is concerned, and to complement the big news above, we thought we'd throw in a couple of sweeteners below to show just how much 0.4 is going to change things.
We've talked a lot about our Character system in LSPDFR 0.4. It's one of the biggest changes to the mod, but we also think it represents an entirely new direction in general. I say this because, not only does it allow us to have a bunch of really cool stuff natively integrated into the mod, like customizing a character, but it also lets us have a bunch of other really cool stuff natively integrated into the mod! Having your own character dials up the immersion quite substantially, but we wanted to take things to another level. We thought, for example, wouldn't it be cool if instead of spawning as Franklin in Franklin's house, you could instead, say, I don't know? Actually spawn as your own character, in their house. Or maybe, instead of switching to Trevor and your camera panning down to him being pursued by the LSPD, you could switch to one of your other characters, and "Google Earth" down to them being the LSPD.
LSPDFR 0.4 introduces a fully functional GTA Online Apartment to single-player, complete with transition sequences, working interactions and more Steve Haines than you can handle.
It's not just that, though, we really wanted to dial it up. Having your own character, them having an apartment, switching, customizing, it's all cool, right? But you might be thinking, what's the point? These are "multiplayer features". And sure, LSPDFR is and most likely always will be a single-player mod, but that doesn't mean we can't think outside of the box every once in a while.
Recently, @Cyan, in addition to all of her work on the website, has also been developing an all new framework called LSPDFR Sync. LSPDFR Sync lets you connect up to your LSPDFR.com account in-game, and you can then synchronize your LSPDFR characters with your LSPDFR.com profile. To top it off, we've brought back statistics too. Ever wanted to know how many shots your character has fired? It's as simple as taking a look at your character's profile on the site - which, we should add, you can actually edit.
LSPDFR Sync provides all-new, seamless connectivity with your LSPDFR.com profile.
And frankly, it doesn't even end there. When I said before that we wanted to dial the immersion up to the max, I guess I lied. What I actually meant to say was that we'd just ripped the dial clean off the controls, strapped it to a rocket, and sent the damn thing up to the moon. Not only can you now create a character, customize them, share them, spawn as them... You can actually do things as them too! Like, actual game things. Ever wanted to run the triathalon as your LSPDFR Character? Now you can. Or, how about practicing with your sidearm down at the range? Yep, got that too. Simply want a can of sprunk from a vending machine? No problem.
With the introduction of a new innovative system by @LMS, it's now possible to do many of the single-player minigames while playing as your LSPDFR Character.
Of course, with the Character system, and all of the features that come with it, being such a huge part of LSPDFR 0.4 it'd be easy to forget that this is a police mod. Indeed, I think we almost did given the grotesquely gargantuan amount of work that has gone into it. Fear not, though, as we have also been working on some incredible new gameplay features too, including massive improvements to interaction with suspects and people that you arrest.
LSPDFR 0.4 introduces, in a game-changing way, the ability to take hold of and drag arrested suspects. Yes, we know that there's some great API mods which have held the fort, and we're grateful for that, but this is something we wanted to get absolutely right, and indeed, we think the result is simply stunning. The possibilities are pretty far-reaching too and encompass just about everything from shoving suspects up against cruisers, to personally escorting them into their cells.
No, these aren't cutscenes. No, they're not edited screenshots. With 0.4, this is real.

He isn't around because hes pissed at people like Reckless and Tazzzjor that keep on ripping his models. Tazzzjor is the person behind leaking the Caprice to Durbin and so forth and I believe EVI is upset about it...
The stealing and ripping will never end in this community and its destroying all of the original modders slowly but surely.

Update to this thread. I am no longer in the reserve program with my agency and have switched over to full time. I can no longer continue my contributions to the GTA community. I will not be returning for GTA 5, nor do I have a plan to return for any future game modeling. I ask the moderators to close it as it is no longer needed. Thanks and good luck to everyone.

googleplex2010 reacted to Sam in Permissions?
Generally, as long as we don't get a takedown request from someone claiming to be (with proof) the original author or copyright holder, then you'll be okay. Things like this work on the basis that we assume you are acting in good faith and uploading files which you are allowed to and until someone demonstrates otherwise, you'll be okay.
If you flat out tell us that you can't do it though, we can't in good conscience let you do it, as we know that you're not allowed to.
I hope this cleared it up, although you might want to read up on the DMCA for a better understanding. Note though that the DMCA only covers the rights of the copyright holder. If someone makes a Dodge Charger mod and then someone else 'steals' it as the saying goes, then even the original author of the mod could not request its takedown under DMCA as Dodge has copyright over the Charger model. This is where we have an additional rule, imposed by us, that people who we deem to be 'original authors', can also request takedown of content.
And yes, there are some people that seem to pride themselves on being the GTA modding police and going around making all sorts of accusations directed at content creators and directed at us. Indeed, some of these people favour (and in some cases actually run) closed systems where only content made by them or their friends would be allowed to be uploaded. The great thing about LCPDFR.com is that we allow anybody, normal member, tester, community team member, or developer, to upload to our database with absolutely no limits or restrictions imposed based on their status, who they know, post count, or anything else.

Politics, EGO trippers, So called Modding "Gods" When they really just steal, This is why The GTA IV Modding community is dying a sad painfull death, Back in the day, We had mature, Well mannerd Modders to look up to, now we just have a bunch of 12 year old theives who couldn't edit a .ini if their lives depended on it, and yet their the "master of modeling", Its really a shame, That theese imature idiots were allowed to push people like You, Kevin, And people like yakadafi, out of such wonderous art of creating real life, into a finction, It really was art, Its again, A great shame, I don't expect it to be long before we see all the mature modders who actually WORKED for THEIR art to make it avalible (Without any conditions) To the people who mod their games, Kevin, Those who respected you're work, Will always respect you for your art, And will always enjoy it, Im sorry to hear that such stupidity has now created you to call one of your most favorite hobbies quits, I hope you enjoy your downtime however without having to worry about your art being stolen anymore, Thank you, For all your great mods and hard work,
SIDE NOTE: Can we just stop this?, I mean really, For the sake of creativity and all that stands for good in this modding community, Can we just stop this Politics, and the theft?, I fear if we don't, we will never get people back like kevin and yakadafi, and that the modding commuinity will soon be dead.
googleplex2010 reacted to Kane104 in End of the road
I have decided that I am leaving IV modding for the same reasons as Yakadafi, not that I have been stolen from but it is a clearly visible threat in the future.
Today I discovered a serious breach of the .wft lock, much like people are able to do with GTA SA with the DFF unlocker except this involves a program I will not mention here, this was discovered when a certain person stole equipment from one of Yakadafi's locked models, this means that there is a apparent threat to any IV locked model.
I know I'm a fairly average modder, I mostly do South African Police mods but also a few US now and again, however I was working on the Bearcat, a huge project which many looked forward to, I worked endlessly modeling it and I will not have it being stolen by anyone, therefore the project is officially abbandoned and no release will be made, all other mods of mine will also be abbandoned.
I came into the IV modding community because models were safe and unstealable, having my hard worked on models stolen by some lazy person and theif claiming as their own is a path I'd rather choose not to tread, that being said the safety of our work is merely a saying in the past and I refuse to have my/or any other modder's hard work stolen.
I am not asking for sympathy by making this thread, so let it be known, I bid you all farewell.
googleplex2010 reacted to EVI in Request: Yakadafi CHP Charger Download Link
I know Sam, thats why I have a great deal of respect for you. You stood up for me and I appretiate that. I was banned from GPM because I humorously released a K9 vehicle.
As far as old mods go, I don't want to upload old mods because a lot of them need to be updated. I will go back and update them with new light bars and close their mod status. Also, there are a few people that had requests and I would still like to finish them. So if those certain people are still interested, please pm me.
googleplex2010 reacted to Sam in Request: Yakadafi CHP Charger Download Link
I'm pretty sure you got banned because bugs said that you stole a mirror from one of his cars or something pathetic like that. It was sad because quite a lot of people over there just believe anything they are told and unite against people (something which eventually happened to me). I remember Lt.Caine and I both tried to keep Yakadafi on GPM, with us trying to get him added as a senior member so that he would at least be entitled to some protections against unfair bans in future. I just had a look at my old PMs from GPM in my email, and it seems as though when Brant took over we tried to get Yakadafi unbanned for the second time, but bugs was pretty hostile about it.
It would be cool if you want to upload your old things here, I'm sure that a lot of people would appreciate the convenience, and unlike some other sites, we don't force people to register to download things, so they would be accessible to everyone.
googleplex2010 reacted to EVI in Request: Yakadafi CHP Charger Download Link
Actually, I didn't have a lot of "beef" with a lot of people, only certain users from GPM. I have received many messages over youtube telling me that my mods are the best, but I have never claimed that they were. I have even received many people wanting to pay me. I have never accepted even 1 penny.
Most of my mods can be found at:
googleplex2010 reacted to NicolaiB in Request: Yakadafi CHP Charger Download Link
He got greif because he didn't get along with GPM, they tend to be pretty bitchy towards those who doesn't like them.
He's been accused several times of stealing work from a certain content creator (won't mention any names, but it isn't that hard to figure out who), when in fact it has been the other way round.
The latest and most blatant example were Alec Durbins upload of Yakadafis unlocked CVPI model, he didn't even remove Yakadafis logo and such from the template files.
They since removed that version, and replaced it with one without Yakadafis logo.

The reason why there isn't a unlocked taurus out there is because the one that is being released is the one that I bought and I don't wish for it to be released unlocked as I don't want inexperienced modders ruin a good car. (Not trying to start anything here but just my thoughts.)
