Rabid fan creates perfect Back to the Future mod for GTA IV
There are an abundance of modifications available for the PC version of Grand Theft Auto IV, but few are excellent as the example found in the video below. A fan of both the car-thieving game series and the Back to the Future movie franchise managed to bring his two loves together by crafting a Marty McFly skin for game's Niko character. That's hardly impressive, but whipping up an accurate recreation of Doc Brown's time-travelling DeLorean DMC-12 in the game is something else entirely. YouTube user seedyrom34 has developed a detailed vehicle skin complete with an interior with a working flux capacitor.
That's not all, either. The car features a working keypad for punching in dates and times. When the car has plutonium and the time circuits are active, the player can "time travel" on command, laying down two streaks of fire and jumping into the future or past in the process. Please excuse our geekgasm.
If you like what you see and consider yourself a GTA modder of adequate skill, the YouTube description even gives you a few hints as to how you can execute similar work. Check out the video of the mod in action below.
