I have put together my complete list of suggestions which I've made in various threads:
Vista (Nissan Skyline or similar)
Oval Corsette (Opel/Vauxhal Corsa.)
Accurate C-REX (Acura/Honda CRX.)
Bronco (Heavy van or lorry, like the Burrito or Rumpo.)
Sultan (big truck of some sort, or perhaps the semi tractor unit.)
Siberian (Another big truck, maybe a piece of heavy plant machinery like a crane or a tipper truck.)
Bulluck (The bulldozer DieselGT made.)
Porker (Porsche, the SUV one.)
Gull, Seagull (The land and water-borne helicopters.)
Kestrel, Vulture, Cyclone, Comanche (Other helicopters, the Comanche is the actual name of the future replacement for the real Apache.)
Eagle, Condor, Falcon, Peregrine (Planes.)
Dorsal, Pisces, Tadpole, Monger (Boats.)
Cossie (Ford Cosworth of some kind.)
ANL Probe (Like the Ford Probe, word play on "anal.")
ANL Guzzler (Some sort of fuel-hungry vehicle, possibly a muscle car.)
Summit, Mogul (Lincoln stretch limosine, it's the modern curvy one, other executive type cars.)
Fiend (Nissan Rascal, pokey little van thing.)
Ferroussi (My suggestion for the "ferrari" parody everyone making one might choose.)
UltiMart (Big hyperstore type thing.)
Octaco Fuels (Octane series of hydrocarbons, so it will be funny. To chemistry geeks.)
X-Torsion (Vehicle tuning firm.)
Cahokia (Actual name of an ancient megalith in St. Loius.)
O.M.G. (Over-priced electrical goods store.)
L. Mao's Joke Shop (Laugh My Arse Off abbreviation hidden in there.)
I.D.E.A. (Like IKEA.)
Boxbuster Rentals (Like Blockbuster.)
Plums (Software company, like Apple.)
DAMD (Like AMD, word play om damned or dammed.)
S-O (Like ESSO.)
Unhinged! Inc. (Door and gate suppliers. Joke is they only sell rolling and sliding versions, so no hinges. Also, "unhinged" means crazy.)
MyraCo Freight - moving in mysterious ways. (Sounds a bit like "miracle" so bleh. Haulage/delivery firm, could have thier own removals lorries replacing one of the panel vans.)
Miss Teak Lumber - garanteed to give you wood! (Timber suppliers, maybe have a sawmill building and have thier logo with a pile of wood on one of the utility trucks.)
Itchivani Research Labs - sratching below the surface. (Research offices/labratory complex. Say the name out loud, pronouncing the "v" softly if it don't get it.)
Postal Haulage - crazy about your package! (Postal as in deliveries and postage but also as in crazy and out of control. Package as in a box but also like your rude trouser bulge.)
Big Rod's Tackle (Fisherman type shop, plus innuendo aplenty.)
Ferederick Mantissa (Remember the exponent-mantissa storage system for binary numbers? Urgh, another geek joke, then.)
Harold Fulcrum (Fulcrum is the posh name for the pivot point of a lever. Both these names suit mad scientist architypes.)
Evan Gelical (Like "evangelical" - would be like the "Pastor Richards" character from GTAVC.)
|Industry and Processing|
Metal casting - like in the end scenes of Terminator 2.
Metallurgy research, labratories, workshops and machinery.
Pressing panels for cars with SCM used to animate pressing machinery - used as disposal for mission objects at some point by crushing?
Galvonising, paint stripping, other surface treatment ponds
Assembly lines, coveyor belts could be animated via SCM, simple robots could rotate like the tops of the tower cranes at docklands in Portland and Vice Port do?
Canning (plus aluminum centre could work well) or bottling, maybe a facility for packing stuff into those big transport containers?
Proper metal engineering with lathes, milling machines, drills, welding and flame cutting apparatus. Doesn't have to be animated through SCM but it would mainly just be spinning and reciprocating.
High-class panel beaters and carpenters, could have a dry dock for repairing classy boats. Bombshop or sprayshop could be included, perhaps.
|Waste and Recycling|
Recycling machinery, conveyor belts traveresed by magnets, ponds for pulping paper, etc.
Dumping - could just be a big landfill site!
Un-environmental waste disposal, such as having a wharf out to deeper water where trashmasters could drive up shallow ramp to dump thier load into barges, with then dump at sea. Could be part of a land reclamation type project, so an underwater bar of rubbish could be modeled and would look good with the see-through water. Could make it like a bit spit, maybe even have a lighthouse?
Crash testing area, pipe ramps for flips, walls, bridges, skidpan, etc.
Sports centre, treadmills, swimming pool, tennis courts with automatic tennis ball launchers, etc.
Indoor go-karts, RC car racing.
Tyre depot - stockpiles of old tyres, test track with circles, slaloms, skidpan, etc.
Off-road course, open to public but with a mission event to win the Sandking.
Outdoor supercross event, aggressive drivers following a vehicle path with an SCM exclusion zone would make for a unique event.
This would be a bit like how Hyman stadium works with a shell and then a series of interiors. The player could compete in martial arts type fighting and get the infinite run as the reward for winning.
Indoor trials riding over boxes, waterfalls would give the reward of the special trials bike parked outside the stadium - could replace the pizzaboy?
Also have events like car-crashing, where you'd have to use a Bloodring Banger to leap off pipe ramps and do a stunt worth at least X amount of points to progress to the next stunt. Completing the course would make both bloodring bangers always be parked outside the stadium.
