I wonder if we will finally see a full semi truck driving? In San Andreas they introduced the 18 wheeler but sadly we never saw a ped driving one on the road, save for a few missions.

I think it would be totally badass and add a hell of a lot of play time, and also there is the realism part of it. Everywhere you go no matter the town you see semis I just hope they make the cut in GTA IV. It may sound stupid but this feature would make me really happy. I dont know what we know on this subject and I really dont think its been touched on so id like to hear your thoughts.

Im tired of seeing peds drive just the cab by itself, wtf happened to your trailer? where the f*ck did you lose it you godamn ped? thats what I think when I see them tounge.gif

ahhh I see thanks a lot for letting me know.

I agree it is a cool idea, I just imagine being in a high speed chase on the freeway, and just like in real life, the cops radio to the truck drivers for assistance. Next thing you know theres a 60 foot semi blocking you in, would make for some REALLY fun action scenes.

Also to see a ped jack knife .....priceless.

I hope that they will have oil tankers semis and whn you blow them up the ave special explotions for them.

Also car cariers that actully have cars on them that will fall off.

Seems like you guys don't know the meaning of irony. The line "full semi-truck" is actually an oxymoron. It sickens me to hear people use such terrible grammar and incorrectly use their terms. confused.gif

I know most of you think Saints row is crap but that had Artic Trucks that peds drove. Also the tankers on them could be blown up massive explosions. So i think GTA will have it with big ass explosions biggrin.gif

Yep. I started a similar topic, not more than a few weeks ago.

As for the trucks, I couldn't agree more. They would make a great addition to Liberty's freeway traffic, and definitely add to the new, realistic feel.

Rockstar has been pretty good, when it comes to listening to what their fans have to say. I just hope they addressed this issue.

There are tractor trailers in the game. I have read in one preview that there is a tractor trailer that carries logs, and you can shoot the logs causing them to fall and create havok/road blocks. There are others that carries barrels, etc. They might be 3-5 different types.

I totally agree! It always bugged me in SA to see trucks without trailers all the time. Who in hell needs trucks that actually carry nothing?! That was completely unrealistic tounge2.gif

Read the bottom...

I said tractor trailers, but i meant flatbeds...sorry that i got your hopes really up wink.gif But again, there are tractor trailers in the game...just watch the third trailer.

if you want the full mag, here it is: http://rockstaruncut.com/?p=282

Remember this...KTR does not say random crap without have a source behind it.

@ KTR: This doesn't prove that there will be trucks with trailers in the game. In SA we had trucks named Flatbed that weren't trailer trucks. I still hope they will be in the game.

That was not the topic's point. We already know that there will be tractors in the game (no improvement to SA), we actually want tractors carrying trailers (driven by peds) wink.gif

Check out the Roman trailer and toward the beginning in the scene where they show his name written on the screen, look at the left hand side of the screen and you will see the cargo portion of a gasoline tanker. Although it does appear to not be connected to a hauling device.
But, I guess that doesn't confirm anything, but maybe worth pointing out.

I'd like it, at least a semi with car carrying attachment and the cars do react and fall off when you shoot the chains etc. Would be VERY fun, especially as part of a mission. biggrin.gif

We'll see.

On topic.. would be bad ass to incorperate this into a car chase, a truck full of new cars, each of them falling off one by one, just like that one in the movie Badboys 2.

I also like the idea of a tanker, would make for some exciting explosions.

And also maybe a truck with a trailer full of barrels or something so when the cables break you got a big fun mess to play in!!!

Hopefully Rockstar can get some peds driving these kinda rigs.

Don't you get it?? It is not about the tractors only BUT about tractors carrying trailers! Did you see that the truck has a trailer attached to it? I don't think so...

but i remember they would all disappear when i had a couple.

i remember the brown trailer, i think it was a car trailer.

Im totally for having proper trucking this time around. SA was half hearted with it, it needs loadable trailers and vans so we can actually shift stuff around the city.

I remember thinkin how shat it was that the fork-lift was basically useless in SA. Missed opportunity or what!

The only thing was the size of the trucks , cornering was near impossible with a trailer on, at least in the towns

Saints Row had a nice rig, with all the lights etc. (but thats all it had)

The trucks honk their horns when they pass another truck of the same company.

Hell yeah I also felt SA was half assed mercie_blink.gif . Im sure it was a limitation of the ps2 though because they would lag the sh*t out that ancient hardware. Hopefully the xbox can handle it. I always felt like this feature was the missing piece that would make the highway traffic very close to real life traffic. Realistically you see tractor trailers all over in every town, they ship everything we use, so I hope and pray there are truck drivers in GTA IV.......

I would love for a flat bed truck or a car carrier truck to transport stuff around the city, not like in San Andreas where the cars would fall of unless you drove like grampa sarcasm.gif , but real transport capabilities.

I never played saints row, but did that game actually have semis with trailers that were driven by peds?
