Popular GTA 4 modder quits due to harassment
A popular GTA 4 modded has recently called it quits after his latest big release, due to constant harassment and negative feedback aimed towards him and his work. Technical artist Hayssam Keilany is the lead modder behind the terrific iCEnhancer mod for GTA 4, and he has recently launched version 3.0 of the mod, which apparently has caused a lot of his fans to start complaining.
Given that this is not his job, and it’s basically a hobby of his, it’s pretty silly that gamers sought to attack the guy over minor issues. In a statement posted on the mod’s Facebook page, Keilany announced he’s taking a break from the mod due to the drama he gets as a reward for his efforts.
“So yep, that’s it. At every release it’s the same, since 1.2. People spitting on me, my work, everything I do just because people know me or whatever. That’s always nice -cough-,” Keilany said. “I spent days, weeks, months doing 3.0, released it because I thought people would like it and stuff. If you don’t then I’m sorry, but it’s how I like my GTA. I’m going to release the installer and downgrader then i’m done for a while.
