You Won't Believe How Amazing GTA IV Looks With Mods

Well, time to see what the GTA IV community has been up to these past few months. As we can see, the modded version of GTA IV looks phenomenal. The imported cars look unbelievably detailed, rivaling those found in next-gen upcoming titles such as Watch Dogs. (Grand Theft Auto IV, PC)

atm Ive PC, X360 and PS3 and I can choose any of them for multiplats, but theres no choice for exclusives which make each console unique.
Diversity is great.

GTA IV looks amazing with mods, the problem is the average gaming PC can't run the game at all with these settings.

Some things look like higher resolution last-gen textures (trees, character models).

Some things look like what we should be expecting from todays consoles (building quality for an open world game)

Example: Compare shot 24 to this inFAMOUS shot (remebering inFAMOUS is a year 1 PS4 title)

The only things really wowing in those shots are the car models for an open world game and the lighting.

What I love about modding is that it give you a representation of what these games could and should look like maxed out, and it gives a taste of what to expect for the next console generation.

I dont own a gaming pc but i really hope GTA 5 comes to PC so i can see the mods that appear on it

Can you actually play the story with these mods enabled. Does the cutscenes and stuff work properly and look as good? just curious :O

I bought GTA IV because of these awesome mods I've been seeing for years. Played through the game and loved it, the mods can give a new life to an old game and make it as awesome as ever.

I'm really looking forward to what Rockstar will bring with GTA5 for PC. Imagine if they gave us legit modding tools with steam workshop support? That would be fucking amazing.

Looking forward to GTA V even more simply because I'll be playing it around launch, unlike GTA IV where I didn't play it for years.

Notice its always screen shots and never a video. In motion it breaks apart and looks like crap. Skyrim mods also.

thats the dumbest thing i have ever heard.
Skyrim is fully playable with the most demanding ENB settings if you have the GPU power to handle it.
ofc things like motion blur and such looks like crap on vid and great on screenshots but its easy to turn off.
any ENB setting is easy to edit to your liking and target framerate. and you dont need 4-8k textures everywhere for it to look better than next gen either.

my old GTX 580 with 3GB of VRAM (old GPU) runs skyrim at around 50fps with over 300 mods, over 8GB of highres textures and one of the most demanding ENB out there the RealENB and the hole install folder is at 43GB.

mods like this is fully playable now that GPU power is getting to big, and it keeps getting better.

Skyrim actually works, GTA 4 can be a mess since it was horribly coded. There are literally mods to simply make the game run better.

Fps can spike and dip on GTA without any reason, regardless of GPU.

these cars look almost as good as the cars in forza 5

Where has this guy been? ICEnhancer shots get posted here a lot from GTA IV.
