‘Grand Theft Auto 3’ Is Actually Incredibly Moddable

TouchArcade Rating:

Grand Theft Auto 3 [$4.99] is good and all, but wouldn’t it be better if you could, say, adjust the draw distance? Or turn up the Awesome on those muddy A4 chip textures? Some of our more technically savvy and adventurous message board users are doing just that right now, believe it or not, and without a jailbreak.

How? Turns out that Grand Theft Auto 3 on iOS and Android has the exact same file structure as their PC versions, which opens them up for modding after a bit of directory digging. The thread we mentioned is a guide of sorts if you’d like to get in on the action. If you’re looking for how to do it, or have questions along the way. That’s the place to go.

Cult of Mac speculates that modding could lead to Hot Coffee-type inclusions into this version, if modders wanted to go that far with additional content. It’ll be interesting to see how Apple would react to that. Guess: not favorably.
