A lot of progress is being made in terms of where we're getting in modding GTA IV on a large scale. Numerous talented programmers in the community are busy creating some excellent tools to aid us in modifying the game to our heart's content. This post is essentially a round up of some of the recent developments.SparkIV
SparkIV is a very promising IMG/RPF archive viewer and editor being created by aru
. It's still heavily in public beta stages but already very powerful. Not all features are finished yet and there may be bugs, but it's looking like this is going to be the main successor to the GTA3 era's famous IMG Tool. Download SparkIV
Alexander Blade, whose name you may recognise from the likes of Sanny Builder and CLEO, has started work on a new scripting project for GTA IV entitled Alice. In similar fashion to CLEO, Alice allows you to create scripts for GTA IV in a programming language called LUA, the download itself contains three examples including a Superman (God Mode) script, save anywhere, and the ability to view/read co-ordinates. Since Alice has just been released we don't have any mods available for it yet, though we're sure it's popularity is only going to increase over time. Download Alice
