The initiative to transfer Liberty City into GTA V’s engine is getting overwhelmed by a daily life.
Many of the fans of Grand Theft Auto IV wait impatiently for the upcoming mod OpenIV that transfers Liberty City to GTA V. Although still releasing this year, it won’t keep up to the previously suggested Spring release date. There are several reasons, the main being the modder’s free time (or lack thereof).
Mod is delayed because we currently do not have much time to spend on modding (and Liberty City is required a lot of time). We all have life outside of modding and sometimes it is just impossible to spend time on modding because we just do not have that time. Anyway we are trying to do something every day, so there is progress but not much as hoped.
Fortunately, there are no technical issues that are blocking the progress, neither there are any legal problems.
