It looks like people playing the single player portion of Grand Theft Auto on PC are getting banned too.

 

A lot of players have left negative reviews for Grand Theft Auto V on the game’s official listing on Steam. Some of them were banned for using mods on GTA Online, but others were banned using mods while playing the single player mode.

 

One Steam user named Sumner said:

 

Single player is where it’s at! No wannabe ‘Rockstars’ to ruin your fun and give you a ban for the simplest things… Apparently there are people getting banned for modding in SP.

 

Another user named Sangre said:

 

If you thought you were going to get a GTA optimized for PC, forget it. Rockstar once again is doing everything in there power to stop single player mods and 3rd party patches, despite all of the aspects where the game is lacking

 

Other users were more specific as some players have been using a mod called “FOV” in Grand Theft Auto V. FOV stands for “Field of Vision” and is a mod that allows PC gamers to fit the game properly on certain monitors.

 

Steam user Ronald McRegan explained it perfectly:

 

Being the “definitive edition” I expected it to take into account the strengths of PC gaming, including the ability to mod games. The worst example of this, and the main reason I gave it a negative review is the FOV mods. The default FOV is not natural for PC gamers, even at maximum settings it’s only able to see half the windscreen and half the side window when driving, and you have little awareness of your surroundings in first-person. If you try to fix this yourself with simple mods, your account is banned without warning for an unspecified period of time.

 

Most of the negative reviews for Grand Theft Auto V were made recently. Hopefully Rockstar stops banning people for using simple graphical mods used during single player.

Even if I was a PC gamer, I would never get GTA on PC. When has that ever not been frustrating?

They will eventually make private GTA V servers which will be better and you won't get banned.

I bet BrokenDreams is jumping with glee, giggling like a child who got the biggest bag of candy sold in a store. Just kidding, Broken. I don't actually give a damn.

Rockstar's setting themselves up for failure at this point. C'mon, mods were basically the whole reason people bought your game on PC.

I can't say I didn't see this coming but at the same time it's shocking

For those who didn't read the link I posted; they're only banning modding for Online mode. Single player can actually mod without getting in trouble. Turns out Rockstar actually do like mods.

That's not fun. Single player mods in no way affect the multiplayer basis of the game. Single player mods work almost like cheats in a single player file, so that's no fun. It should be banned for MP, but why for SP?

Dude, they're not banning single player mods anymore. Only online. https://pbs.twimg.co...8HpWAAE0DvP.jpg
