lol, I love that word filter - makes for some funny reading. I'm talking about the one that changes free.roam to pony farm
The issue of what exactly to do with the bikes was discussed and all-but-finalised around September last year. I actually took a look at my old chat logs to figure out the reasons why Craig made the decisions he did - initially, he was going to go with an LCS-style setup, because that's the way R* intended it to be (for those of you who, like me, have never played LCS, this style of setup would involve bikes driving around in traffic (including on Portland) and sportscars still only appearing on Staunton and SSV). However, he decided to scrap that idea and add more parked bikes around the city - I can't find a mention of why, although I suspect he was just too lazy
. I don't think anything was done about it at all though - can anyone confirm this?
Anyways, taking all that into account, I'm more inclined to go with an LCS-style setup, but modified slightly - instead of having ALL bikes driving around in Portland, I think we should just have Faggios (which would fit in with it being the crap part of town). Once you reach Staunton though, all bikes would be driving around in traffic (as with sportscars). Also, to keep people happy, I think we should have one of each of the bikes parked somewhere in Portland - the following is a list I came up with a while ago, but I still think it's appropriate:
- A Faggio parked at Misty's Apartment
- A PCJ in Easy Credit Autos, next to the Banshee
- A Sanchez at the Supa Save near the docks (replacing the existing PCJ) near the Patriot
- A Freeway at the hall near the Callahan Bridge (the building used in The Fuzz Ball - replacing the existing PCJ)
- An Angel in the carpark of the building (sorry, forget the name of it) where you pick up the Manana for Dead Skunk In The Trunk
Obviously, I'm open to other suggestions as well, but you'll have to do a fair bit to convince me to change from this proposed setup
- Glad to hear mate
. Also, it's good to see you still pop around occassionally.
For those who don't know what I'm talking about, see the edit by line in my last post (two above this one).
