Hopefully, modding can now begin in earnest.
Grand Theft Auto V was initially expected to be the first great modding experience of 2015, instead it landed with a resounding thud that disappointed many. Well, with any amount of luck, this is about to change thanks to one dedicated modder by the name of Alexander Blade.
Alexander has released a “Script Hook” library for Grand Theft Auto V, meaning that players can actively interact with, choose and alter already existing scripts in the game. In a video, this is shown to include all manner of things, including world effects such as weather and day time, plus much more.
This mod opens the way for many other modders to follow, given them another step towards the functionality that was promised to them, but later denied. Those of you who may be worried about script manipulation resulting in a ban, need not worry. When a player goes online, the Script Hook is disabled, meaning there’s nothing active that can result in a ban. Isn’t that nice?
