DO You Support me - Patch Release

Im interested in creating a few patches for GTA IV, its not going to be easy but its not going to be hard.
The patches im looking at possibly making are for the following things -

- Allow players to do yellow cab missions picking people up at various points in the city
- Add some countryside to the city, maybe an extended area outside of Alderney, not alot though just an amount about the size of the Bone County.
- I was going to do the (opening the boot thing) but someone else is already working on that
- Coach and Ambulance missions
- Extra clothing

Thats about it, im thinking of proberbly using the textures in the DAF folders or contact rockstar for permission

What do you think?

Via the psn network, like you know how you download patches, maps and themes etc from the store, well do the same. Obviously though if rockstar agreed i would have to most likely pay Sony to have it on the PSN network.
I dont know what would happen but im going to try it for my person first then see how i can intergrate it

The alternative and free way would be to have it uploaded online allowing people to download it to their pen drives, after this then they can install it via their ps3... the only problem though would be creating the right installation files which would work which is tricky. Its like you need software to make software if you know what i mean

Well for starters you need a bluray drive on your computer, you also need a computer powerful enough to emulate the physics and graphics of a ps3 console. As surprising as this may seem if your really interested you can get both for under £2000, you then rip the contents from the ps3 disc onto the computer

then from there the magic starts

You basically get all the textures from certain parts of the city and put in what most people would call a "skelotomy" which is basically a transparent base, you can then raise the base to make hills, indent it to make roads etc; then you put layers of textures over the transparancy etc; etc;

the other things like opening trunks and things is all peti scripts

You won't be able to release that patch or even get access to the proper files/tools without working for Rockstar or Reverse Engineering the game. Rockstars legal team can fuck you up if you try and work against their legal wills.

In any case they wouldn't allow a 3rd party to make them look incompetent or possibly ruin the games reputation if there were any flaws with the patch. So your best bet is being a Rockstar developer, and spending a couple of weeks for development, testing and then waiting for approval from the Q/A (Quality Assurance) team hoping nothing goes wrong and pushes the patch date back.
