Do you think in GTA IV we will finally get a speedometer? How many times are you hauling ass in VC and wishing you could see how fast you were going? I hope we get the speedometer.

It would be good to have one.

I think you should search before you post. i've seen a few of these topics already.

I'd like it to be an optional feature, or something you can disable, like the HUD. Plus, to add to the realism, if Rockstar finally gives us a first person view from inside the car, maybe we can see the speedomter in the car as well.

I think it should just have numbers like at the side or something, and not a full speedometer.
I also think it should be optional.

It would be great to know the speed and be able to convert to metric. I would also like the uniform speed limit of maybe 60mph/100k, but only if the cops chase you realistically. Sorry to digress.

That's a good idea. I wish there was a way that we could compile a list of completely feasible (not steak) additions to the game that we, the series' biggest fans, want, and send an "official petition" to Rockstar. Speedometer, dashboard view, banks, whatever. They would probably listen to us. cookie.gif cookie.gif cookie.gif cookie.gif cookie.gif cookie.gif cookie.gif cookie.gif cookie.gif cookie.gif cookie.gif

Speedometer is way overdue. We need one. Also, if there is a first person option, fully functional 3D dashboards in every vehicle. I don't care how much extra work that takes. If you are talking planes away due to realism, I want my !@#$% realism.

Cause we are talking about a speedometer, how about gas. I know some of you guys might say no but, if does not seem real at all really, Driving the same car in GTA for 10 Days straight (GTA Game Days) and not having to go to a gasoline station for more gas does not make sense at all. In San Andreas, there were a couple of Gas Stations but they served no purpose except for a Mission or two but nothing else.... Speedometer and Gas would add more realism to GTA IV than the past games ^,^ imo

If there was ever a GTA to add a native speedometer into, its this one.

A manual (standard) transmission would be great too.

i dont hink they should feature the speedometer because it will take up more screen space, this is gta we dont need a bunch of huds on the screen there should just eb the health, armour meter, everything else should be viewable from a cellphone or something which u should be able to bring up by pressing select

If they wanted to add a speedometer in the car (first-person view) then I wouldn't mind. But an onscreen one? No thanks.

I sometimes fakes manual, when it got to top speed, id let go and then hold the gas button again and it'd sound like i went up a gear.

Speedometer should be in, but always choice.
I think if you do say 10 gas station missions (i dunno like, something stupid like filling up tanks as an employee) then you could unlock a choice of having gas limits or not . But they shoud alway s be functional regardless of whether you have gas limits or not, just funner sometimes.

But that's not for this topic

the only real uses for a speedometer (ofcourse to see how fast your going)...but the real reason would be if you had to abide by a speed limit....which i would hate this game to end up like driver

I think have the option of displaying it (similar to the preivous options for subtitles). I really want this to happen, again last night I was hauling ass with nos on the airline strip and I wonder how fast am I going.

I miss this feature very much so and have asked for it every time a GTA comes out.

If you're just going to put "QFT", don't bother. It clearly states in the rules that posts like "x2" are spam.

Oh god, not this again... it's not spam, I'm agreeing with him.

I can't see how that's any more invalid a post than "Yeah, that would be awesome."

I'd also like a speedometer, sometimes I see others complaining about how it's not needed and would only be for races or sh*t like that. If so, then there could be an option on the pause menu to turn it off or on.

Speed O meter would be cool, seeing what type of speed you are doing. But off course I hope the Speed O meter isn't that big, just a small speed o meter near the right.

I'm wkd at driving and shooting in GTA, so WHEN GTA4 COMES TO PC, and its muliplayer online, see you online but I'll be a different name there.

Because I don't know what the heck "QFT" means. tounge.gif

It's really time R* adds this little feature to the game.

yeah, QFT has like, 2 meanings, too, "Quoted for Truth"... or "Quit F'n Talking/Trying" both, completely and utterly opposite meanings............

Anyway, I don't think i'd like to see a speedometer, theres really no reason for it as long as there's no speed limit, which there should not be.

speedometer could be in the game but i don't want the cops to be on my ass for going a 100mph in a 50mph zone. and instead of a huge circle with numbers and a needle how about a digital read out to save space.
