Anyone who has been following the GTA V modding scene even superficially should be familiar with the name of JulioNIB. The legendary modder is responsible for mods such as the Iron Man armor mod and the accompanying Hulk mod, the Watch_Dogs mod and the various Just Cause related mods that have been created for the game.
He is widely considered to be one of the best GTA V modders out there, but he made a name for himself in the modding community back when GTA IV was top dog among Rockstar releases. His scripts continue to be of the highest quality without fault to this day.
His modding prowess is appreciated to such a level that people are donating serious sums to his Patreon page. Currently, he is getting $382 a month for his mods even though they’re available for free.
His most recent project will once again grant the protagonists of GTA V the powers of an iconic superhero. However, this time around the costumed crime-fighter comes to us from DC’s fictional universe, not Marvel’s.
Barry Allen, the fastest man alive, is more popularly known as the Flash. His power allows him to run at near-infinite velocity (infinite velocity would mean that the object is present in every point in space simultaneously) while retaining full control of his direction and movements.
Just like in the case of his Iron Man mod, JulioNIB isn’t the only modder to have taken on the task of bringing this particular superhero to GTA V. There are at least a dozen mods out there related to the Flash, however none of them can even hope to hold a torch to this one.
There is a small catch, however, as Julio’s Flash mod is still a work in progress and cannot be downloaded as of yet. The video he shared of the project is a test run of the uncapped acceleration feature of the upcoming mod.
It will take quite a bit of polish to get the mod into release shape, as currently running faster than a certain speed will cause the game to crash – plus this mod can’t exactly impart the aspect of control the Flash possesses.
However, the mod is shaping up to be pretty sweet. The effects are already in place and look wonderful. Julio is also able to run from one end of the map to the other in a single minute, so this really will make you feel like Barry Allen.
