Rockstar Games Teams Up with Mod Developer to Improve Roleplay in GTA

 Rockstar Games has joined forces with a well-known mod development team to bring official support for roleplay servers to their gaming lineup. In an announcement made today, Rockstar revealed its collaboration with the team, the brains behind the FiveM and RedM modding tools. These tools enable players to craft and immerse themselves in fully customized experiences within titles like Grand Theft Auto V and Red Dead Redemption 2.

While the specifics of this partnership remain somewhat unclear, Rockstar's statement did assert that is now officially integrated into Rockstar Games. The intricacies of this integration, however, weren't elaborated upon in the release.

In an update posted on its official forum, acknowledged its new status as part of Rockstar Games and expressed enthusiasm about advancing the FiveM platform. However, details about GTA 6 were politely sidestepped.

Rockstar Games recently underwent a shift in its approach to game modding policies, particularly concerning roleplay servers. The updated policies encourage the development of fresh, "reasonable" experiences that enrich games in innovative ways. These mods are permitted to be operated through third-party server platforms.

Nevertheless, Rockstar maintains a stance against the creation of entirely new games, narratives, missions, or maps using its intellectual property. Furthermore, any financial gains stemming from its games, whether through loot boxes or cryptocurrency distribution, are strictly prohibited. This aligns with their decision to disapprove of a VR mod in the past.

The modding community, particularly within Grand Theft Auto V, continues to push boundaries. Utilizing platforms such as FiveM, intricate experiences like gangster roleplays have emerged, even prompting participants to exercise caution when wielding firearms due to the inclusion of permanent death mechanics.

Safeguarding Internet Privacy: Supreme Court of Canada Upholds Protection of IP Addresses

In a recent ruling, the Supreme Court of Canada affirmed the significance of privacy rights concerning internet addresses. The court declared that police cannot simply obtain a suspect’s IP address without a court order, emphasizing the expectation of privacy that Canadian residents hold for such information. The court's decision stemmed from a case in 2017 involving Calgary police investigating fraudulent online activities at a liquor store. Initially, police demanded IP addresses from a credit card processor, which eventually led to obtaining subscriber information from Telus. This information was pivotal in making arrests and securing convictions in multiple offenses. Despite previous convictions, the accused contested the legality of obtaining IP addresses without proper authorization. The Supreme Court, in a 5-4 decision, asserted that IP addresses carry a reasonable expectation of privacy, necessitating judicial approval before access. The ruling emphasizes that obtaining jud
