PostSubject: GTAV Base?   Thu Feb 05, 2015 3:58 am

I just received an email today from a closed group called "GTA5 Base", a Partnership offering. I'm not sure if this site is legit or not.
I'm guessing they sent me this email based on my account on gta4-mods.com. Basically, it's similar to Youtuber partnership, where each view you get earn you money. This is exactly that, or that's what it said. Basically, they offer to pay modders, each download their mods get. Sounds like a dream, so I checked out their website, I see they also offer youtube partnership, but I still have my doubts.

GTA5 Base wrote:
In connection with the upcoming release of Grand Theft Auto 5 for PC, we plan to create a huge database of files modifying the original version of the game. Our site will be a source of everything you need for Grand Theft Auto 5 for PC: mods, tools, vehicles, textures, weapons, cheats and much more. The site launches on March 24, 2015. This is also the official release date of the game.

Who are we looking for?

If you are keen on developing game mods this offer is for you. GTA5Base will be a closed group of game Modders, which means that you need to register and we need to confirm your registration. We have introduced this policy in order to create a reliable and trusted professional community.

What are we offering?

How are we different from other services offering mods downloads? We are the only mods portal actually paying for downloads of your files.

Here are our rates for downloads:
0,20$ PER 1 DOWNLOAD (from 1 to 1000 downloads)
0,30$ PER 1 DOWNLOAD (from 1000 to 10000 downloads)
0,50$ PER 1 DOWNLOAD (more than 10000 downloads)

For example:
If your file is downloaded 2000 times, we pay you 500$ (200$ for 1000 downloads, and 300$ for 1000 downloads).

How does it work?

It ‘s simple! After registration you just upload your mods to our site, then we verify their functionality and if they work fine, we publish them on GTA5Base. You keep your copyrights for the files but we would like you not to publish these works anywhere else while using our service. This means that we have an exclusive license for publication of your mods, but they are still yours.

After you upload a mod on our site you will receive your personal download link. Using this link you will get 100% of our rates for downloads. You can promote it by yourself, on YouTube, with your friends, on blogs etc. However, on GTA5Base there will also be a button called: “PROMOTE THIS MOD”. It will be an application for Youtubers who want to promote mods uploaded by our Modders. You decide if you want to cooperate with them or not. If yes, each “your” Youtuber will get another link to your mod to promote. For each download of your mod through a Youtuber’s link you will get 50% of the download rate and he/she gets 50% . But you still get 100% for downloads through your personal link. You can cooperate with as many Youtubers as you want to. Also you need to determine with “your” Youtubers who would make a promotional video about your mods.

Now with GTA5Base you can earn real money doing what you like doing and what you have already been doing for fun.
Don’t miss the chance! For more details contact us at:

Skype: GTA5Base
Mail: contact@gta5base.com
Twitter: @GTA5Base

So, anyone got a clue as of if they're trustworthy? If they are, that means modders can start earning money for their hard-worked mods. But again, I am unsure of this closed group, whether it's trustworthy or not.

Website if you want to check it out: http://gta5base.com

You know this email is written so well it may seem legit to lot of people, Come on man just check GTA4-MODS there are mods which have more than 100000 downloads, this is gonna be the same with V when modders get to learn more of the game e.g. in 2009 we didn't have scripts mods and car mods as good as the one's that are releasing today (So that means the more advanced the mods get the more they will be downloaded), if the website starts to pay modders, then some modders Like ac.amir, JulioNIB, Smokey8808... will be millionaires and to keep the website alive they have to rely on ads, lot's of ads, seems impossible to me...

They can't pay the money of the domain and the modders at the same time, It's possible but they really need to start with a very high budget to keep the host and the modders fed, imagine if Nexus payed modders for each time their mod is downloaded; they would go bankrupt in a month, so this seems non-legit to me. But that's just my opinion.

P.S. 500 bucks is a lot of money, They can't be throwing that amount cash at modders for just 2000 downloads, it's stupid, and if they are going to pay you, they will ask for your Credit Card/PayPal info so the way I see it, it's a internet scam.

BTW what's the username of the guy which sent you the PM on GTA4-MODS?

"exclusive license for publication of your mods, but they are still yours." That sentence right there is sketchy enough to for most people to say no, this as well as the fact that we do not have confirmation that GTA V is modifiable. If this was an effort by GTA4-mods, and GTA INSIDE the validity would seem acceptable, whilst going against those sites and trying to compete on a large scale would be pretty difficult.

Yet I remember reading somewhere that it's illegal to charge for GTA mods which is the only way I can fathom that they are going to be able to pay modders that much for people downloading their content. From my opinion, when it's too good to be true, it usually is.

Like Ansari said, they would need a boat load of money to keep the website a-float (pun intended)

ac.amir only port models from other games, which might not be accepted because of legal issues with the developers of that game, but I'm not sure about that.

I know it's stupid, but just look at youtube partnership. They pay about the same amount of money for each view. Plus, if they get 2000 downloads and lots of ads, then they can make more than you, say, for example, they make 1000 and give you half, or they could make more idk.

And true I am aware of the credit/paypal scam, there are too many things on the internet to even determine what is legit and what is fake now. And he did not send me the pm from gta4 mod, it's an email, and the emailer has no custom name, it's just "GTA5 Base Crew", I'm just saying that I guessed he found out my email through my gta4-mod account, which I published a few GTA4 mods.

@Trentoss: There is a law for that? Since it's the modder's work, worked by themselves, they have the right to publish it freely or else. I've never know of a law that forbid people from selling their own product, though.

Please keep in mind I am not defending this site, just pointing out some flaws here, I am unsure about this site myself, while some of you got good points, I am still feeling mixed about it.

I Know that he ports models from other games, But as far as I know he hasn't got in any legal issues.

YouTube partnership is completely different since it's coming from Google which is a company which has a very very high budget and it's worth billions, but this "GTA5 Base Crew" as they call themselves, have no record of doing legal or even illegal movements (If you know what I mean) So they are new and we since we can't trust them I strongly recommend that you stay away from them because it smells like a hoax. :stabby:

And they are not selling mods, They are getting payed by the publisher for each download they get and this is unlike real life which the author pays the publisher.

Got some good points there, I don't intend to join them since I don't have any bank card, yet.

And I know they are not selling it closed eyes smile. I'm thinking of it like a trade-off, by uploading your mod to their site and make it exclusive on their site, you'd help advertise their site, and they pay you for it. Still, a man can dream closed eyes smile.

My advice would be to hold off and wait till a month or two after the web site has launched. it'll become pretty clear if they're legit or not. it's best to let some other poor sucker take the hit if its a scam.

Let them go man, just like Jaffa said we'll have to wait if this is true or not, if it turned out to be true and they are paying the modders, hell imma go myself and join 'em straight ahead. lol!

Well I'll be damned. I might just learn to mod GTA V when it's available just for this TongueTril.
Thanks for the reply, I'd have never would figure it out since I don't really subscribe to his facebook.

P.s: May I ask how did you find this site though? closed eyes smile Or is it already in your scope when you first open your project? It's a modding friendly site after all.

That is correct Wink
We were looking for an rumours connected with our site. And we've found it.
We hope in nearly future we will payout much more, but so far we hope that this payment to trusted modder (JulioNIB) is enough to consider GTA5Base as a real, paying site.

For now we have beneficial referral program. If you have connections you can get paid just for inviting friends to our community Smile
