GTA 5 DLC, Ill-Gotten Gains, Blocks Certain Mods: Script Hook V, Native Trainer Included

Things took a pretty interesting turn after Rockstar Games released the first poriton of their latest GTA 5 DLC titled Ill Gotten Gains.

While everything was going well before the release and even after it added new vehicles and Combat PDW to the game. However, something unexpected has changed other than this.

In contrast to what the developers of the game have promised PC gamers with regards to modding and support, the said DLC has actually rendered some community generated mods incompatible with the game.

Soon after the GTA 5 DLC: Ill Gotten Gains Part One went live, some of the fans started complaining that it was blocking mods like Script Hook V and Native Trainer from being played on the game.

This would have come as a surprise since Rockstar Games is supposed to support the mods and not go blocking them. However, there is another side of the story. Effects like these are actually what the developers warned the PC users about some time ago.

Here’s an excerpt from what they were saying with regards to issues that may arise in the GTA 5 mods after future updates from a Q&A session that took place in May:

Recent updates to GTA V PC had an unintended effect of making unplayable certain single player modifications. This was not intentional, no one has been banned for using single player modifications, and you should not worry about being banned or being relegated to the cheater pool just for using single player PC mods. Our primary focus is on protecting GTA Online against modifications that could give players an unfair advantage, disrupt gameplay, or cause griefing. It also bears mentioning that because game mods are by definition unauthorized, they may be broken by technical updates, cause instability, or affect your game in other unforeseen ways.

Apart from the two mods mentioned above is there another one that you found blocked? Tell us in the comments below.

Rockstar Games has not commented on the matter so far.
