A new video has emerged of the current efforts in the modding scene for GTA V, which is moving along extremely slowly but surely. Hayssam Keilany, the graphics engineer behind the popular iCEnhancer mod for GTA video games– based upon the ENB shader mods by Boris Vorontsov– has a new pre-alpha of the mod that a couple of players have actually tested.Formerly, Hayssam Keilany was a bit disappointed with GTA V due to the fact that modding the video game was a lot more tough than GTA IV, but he had currently discussed his Facebook page that he would be returning to the mod scene to work his shader magic on GTA V.
The huge difference in between the two is that GTA IV enabled users to quickly access the video game files without needing any third-party software application to actually modify them outside of a general full-screen editor … yes, even Note pad could be used to make large modifications in GTA games. It’s not like that in GTA V, the whole game is locked down tight and all the files that modders would generally have the ability to utilize to change the graphics are secured.
With all that stated, the video above reveals the restrictions of Keilany not having the ability to completely dive into the video game files of GTA V. Many of the commenters on YouTube declare that they can’t even see a difference in the game and that this pre-alpha version of the iCEnhancer doesn’t truly improve the game.
It’s a reasonable argument due to the fact that when you see the iCEnhancer in action above the only thing you can keep in mind is that the fog is gone which the colors appear to pop a bit more. That’s about it.
Much better shadows, reflections, dither, depth of field and light rays are still a methods off.
It’s at least great that modders are still tough at work on GTA V in spite of the obstacles of trying to overcome the modding constraints in place. And while Rockstar is a-okay with single-player mods existing in the game, as reported on Forbes.
There’s no actual time-stamp on when we’ll actually see the outstanding, incredibly incredible mods that made GTA IV as cool as it was regardless of the piss-poor optimization. As soon as modders break through Rockstar’s file encryption process anticipate a deluge of news surrounding incredibly cool mods and huge developments from mods like Hayssam Keilany’s iCEnhancer.
