Famous Modder Walks Away After Too Much Abuse

Hope you enjoyed the latest update to the latest, amazing version of the iCEnhancer mod for Grand Theft Auto IV, because it looks like it'll be the last one we're getting, at least for a while.

The mod's creator, technical artist Hayssam Keilany, is taking a break from the scene having had enough of the drama and vitriol that would accompany each of his releases. (Grand Theft Auto IV, PC)

People who troll him, abuse etc are jealous of his talent. I think his work is great and some companies could learn a couple of things from modders like him

You'd think Rockstar or someone else would have hired this guy by now.

I just hope the guy gets success despite the trolls. It's amazing that one person can do all that when it takes a team over at major studios to achieve the same level of details.

Really hope he makes a comeback for GTA 5

Sadly some people are just natural dicks whose can only derive enjoyment from trolling or being a c**t.

This guys work is very impressive and like above mentioned its strange that any dev team havnt snapped him up, obviously talented.

The video game community is the most toxic group of people on the internet. Absolutely shame.

PC gamers are worse.
Am_Ryder  +   143d ago
I think he's including PC gamers in the category "video game community."

Anyone who calls himself part of the 'Master Race', yeah... Douchebags.

Way to prove the point.

Yep, the "non haters" are just haters too.
user5669510  +   143d ago
We all know where's the hate coming from. Look at the comments from any mod article on here you will see. I give you a hint its the group that can't use this mod
Bearksninn34535  +   143d ago
So much for us hoping he'll mod GTA V.

Look at all these loathing comments for the internets, which in turn enables this modders weak-minded attitude. This isn't the gaming community, little girls and little boys. This is LIFE. People are gonna talk sh*t about you. The more successful you are in what you choose to do in life, the more "haters" you have. Now, like this modder, you can choose to be unsuccessful, and have more friends than "haters", fine. But that's YOUR choice. Don't blame LIFE/internets if you're not willing to put on your Big-Boy pants and take the lumps that come with being successful. That's YOUR choice...

As far as the modding community goes, I like that we (gamers) have that dedicated group of modders out there. I mean, they give the gamers OPTIONS, for FREE. It's like you have developers working on games that you love, fixing bugs/adding content/making graphical enhancements, for no added amount of money. Why would the average have a problem with their work/the modders, I wonder...

The internet, and more specifically the comments, does not represent actual life. People say horrible things here that they wouldn't say anywhere else.

I'm sorry but people who donate their time for others entertainment should be given some respect. You like what modders do for you in their free time yet you don't think they deserve the slightest amount of respect for doing that.

Pretty easy to say "man up" when you don't have to put up with it constantly.
Cobra951  +   143d ago
You're right, of course. They *should* be given respect. Certainly they get it from me. But trolls will be trolls. There is only one way to handle them, which is to ignore them. The greater shame is that talented contributors so often turn their backs on the entire community because of the actions of the trolls. Not only does that deprive the scene of their contributions, but it validates trolling as a method of effecting change for the worse.

@Cobra951

Thank you. You said what I was trying to say, but...with a spoonful of sugar, I guess... :-D
modesign  +   143d ago
the modder wont like the real world, theres always going to be Dbags but are you going to quit your job becuase someones being mean to you.
user5669510  +   143d ago
One being paid by a d!ck is completely different because you are getting paid. Two dbags how you call it usually get punched in their face that why people say stuff on the internet because its not the same as saying things to someone's faceface. Go try it go outside an talk $h!t to the wrong person and come back and post your results. Sound like you Dont live in the real world, if you did you would know crazy stuff happens because of the dumbesy reasons.

Ya trolling is bad and annoying. But come on, grow some thicker skin. I don't understand how people can get so bent out of shape from some random dudes over the internet.
Cobra951  +   143d ago
That's just it. This happens all the time. Growing a thicker skin is very good advice. I can't think of anything worse for the online community than conduct which validates the existence of trolls. Running away because of them does exactly that.
