Switch Designs leaves TGTAP

22 posts in this topic

Just a short note to inform anybody here looking one of Switch's many mods. Switch has decided to leave The GTA Place for personal reasons. Many users will be sad that his mods are no longer here, but he has informed me that he does plan on starting up his own website for distributing his mods from now on, so best of luck to him with that.

To end this short post on a more positive note, I just want to let everyone know that the changes we're planning on making to TGTAP are still on track, we hope to get everything done ready for new year, so look out for exciting new things including a new layout after the Christmas period.

It's a real pity that he has to leave, I mean, he's been a real cool modder, and of course has made a good load of modifications.

Well good to hear that the site is going to change, especially with a new layout, I can't wait to see that! Good luck on it mate. :)

To sum it up: He was one of the most popular GTA Modders of the last 5 years but today he screwed it up by requesting money because of "personal" things. This angered Chris and thus causing Switch Designs to have a temper tantrum by removing his Mods and replacing them with text files saying "fuck you" to Chris. Therefore Chris banned him.

His modds were impressive to say the least but now I don't respect as I did yesterday or last month for that matter. I've never seen someone turn into an asshole over a short period.

@ Switch's leaving: Noooooooooooooooooooooooooo! I loved his mods! :(

@ TGTAP Changing: Cool! Hope the new layout is cool! :D

Wow, if i were to mod I would never expect money from it, I mean, it'd be more of a hobby or whatever...

I can acknowledge that doing these mods would take hours upon hours, but, if your doing it, your doing it for fun and to make something cool that many people can use, not for money.

That's really sad.The 7 or more pages with mods...

I quoted that above because it's the first time WRX types the start of a sentence with a big letter. :lol:

Untill you walk a day in my shoes you should keep your negitive comments to yourself! I'm not dead I just left the site I can still see what your sayin. I have worked harder than any gta modder that I know of and everyone took what I was asking for and turned it into i'm some asshole, begger, who throws fits and is too poor to buy a new pc just to mod for free (because modding gta4 is the only reason I would need one.) Only reason I left thegtaplace was because I was tired of posting stuff in the news just to have it removed. And the only reason I was removing my mod files the way I was is because i was pissed and had no access needed to remove them properly plus i was tring to show how much it upset me that my post was removed in the first place when what i was doing was not against any RULES (same as the shit that happened in GTAF) and to show the admins here how upset i was that i'm forced to conform to the rules made up by the other admins on this site...

I have my own website now that I control and I just think its better that way for everyone. If you wanna check it out go to GTA For Life If you just wanna hate on me more then please don't bother.

I spent all day on it and all that is left to do is to finish hosting and posting about 148 mods that I didn't have time for after spending the whole day creating the site.

And to all of you that still support me and supported me through this cluster fuck of confusion you all deserve a cookie.... Hell make it a bag of cookies...

Even more advertising? LIKEEE WTFF!?

Seriously, why so serious?(:P omg)

You could just apologise and try to build the respect you had back up.

And it's not like you're the not the only one who can't afford to pay for their hobbies, nobody else who has common sense here would post an announcement for the front page asking for cash.

The Switch thing doesn't really effect me, but good luck to him with his site. I have used some of his mods for Vice City before and they are top notch.

@ TGTAP new - Fucking awesome, can't wait!

I left thegtaplace was because I was tired of posting stuff in the news just to have it removed.

The news is a place to post about GTA and TGTAP, not about donating to modders. It's not a place to advertise or anything like that. If you want to ask for money in the forums that's fine, but don't go and hold your mods hostage because some people don't like the idea of you using the news as a venue to ask for money. Maybe instead of wasting all this time with all this drama, you could have possibly worked overtime at your job or something and saved some of that extra money until you had enough for a new PC.

You're a great modder and you have made really nice mods, but that's no excuse to ask for money and then belittle those who criticize you. It's the same here or at GTAForums, as I said you're a great modder but that doesn't mean people are obligated to be nice or help you.

You don't see me posting a news article that says "HEY I NEED NEW COMPUTAR AND SINCE IM SO AWESOME DONATE TO ME OR YOURE NOT DOING YOUR PART FOR THE COMMUNITY KTHXBYE"

Ordinarily I'd take that link out of your post but you're mods are nice and I think people should be able to access them.

OK so all you want is me to say i'm sorry..... OK I'm sorry, I'm sorry to chris that he lost 7 pages of mods, i'm sry to my fans that think asking for donations is wrong, I'm sorry for concidering what I do as more than just a hobby, and I'm sorry that when I left gtagaming that I didn't just make my own website to begin with.

My site is making me alot happier than I was before and is turning out to look pretty sweet for being made by a guy that has never built a website before!

No, posting a topic that appears on the front page asking for donations is wrong, Chris said that apart from that it was ok to do it, but then you went taking your mods off and tell him to fuck off, pretty immature really.

And it is only a hobby.

Yeah I agree with Connor. And what are you suggesting? That its a job? No offense but if you think making mods for a game is a job then you need to open your eyes and see the world for what it really is.

Again like I said I'm sorry for you and Chris and anyone else that feels like that but know that your like one of maybe 20 people in the whole community that thought poorly enough of what I did to actually say something! Plus fuckoff is easy to say... watch: fuckoff connor! and again it's your opinion that it's just a hobby and your opinion does not matter to me!!

Yeah I agree with Connor. And what are you suggesting? That its a job? No offense but if you think making mods for a game is a job then you need to open your eyes and see the world for what it really is.

I'm 29 years old and i know the difference between a hobby and a job and it's not a job but it's become way more than something that i just do for myself for fun... I know what the world really is and when you grow up you'll see it too...

this really sucks but.. is weird lol.. if i leave a site im not gona simply remove my mods from it? just have more than 1 link for them.

When you make 155 mods then tell me what you would do! I removed them because that was the agreement If I ever left my mods come with me they are mine after all and why keep them here anyways you all think i'm such an asshole why do you want them here anyway!
