I got a little bored just now, so I got in a chopper and flew south. I kept flying south for roughly 10-20 minutes (I had BBC iplayer to keep me entertained) just to see what happened when you reached the absolute limits of the game. I remember from other games that they'd simply stop you from going any further or physically turn you around when you reached the end. This time however, Niko never actually reached 'the edge' because for some reason, his health started to slowly deplete. I died before I ever actually reached the end, but it just made me wonder why R* bothered to put THAT much sea in (there as far more than past GTAs) and then put in a system to deplete your health. Why not just leave it as it was in the past games?

Just wondered what other members here think should happen if you bother to go that far.

I once tried flying west, and a message appeared on the bottom of my screen saying "You have reached the edge, turn back now or suffer the consequences." I'm thinking "Oh, really scary." Then my helicopter blows up.
This was online.

i highly doubt there is san andreas or vice city if u fly far enough, it would be sweet if there was tho. besides u could only get to liberty in SA by flying in a mission... right?

I remember being in a 6* chase out in the ocean, and I just kept going. I got sick of seeing endless sea, so I blew myself up.

I don't know why they bother having so much ocean. Why couldn't they add other islands or something?

Something like in Scarface where if you travel far enough you get teleported to another part of the ocean where there's a string of islands.

it's not THAT much ocean, it's just the same ocean that gets generated over and over again, with no end.

I wish it was another island but it was a jungle, with massive trees off road tracks for jeeps and bikes and there were bears you could hunt lol.
I think that a big downside to this game is that, theres no country side you can rally around in like GTA: SA.
Whats your let down in the game?

I remember having a wanted level and kept on going North. However, my wanted level never went away, no matter how far I went.

Or, in Scarface: TWIY, you're eaten by a shark. tounge.gif If only that could happen in IV.

OT: Maybe the world is flat and you fall over the edge. bored.gif

Actually there isn't such a large area of sea (why would Rockstar waste all that space?)
I think its scripted to repeat its self over and over, making you feel like its a large area.

That is probably true but I guess it doesn't actually make much of a difference. What if there is actually an island somewhere if you go far enough. And did it actually take 10-20 minutes?

Why did someone start losing their health after flying for 20 minutes I wonder if the sea starts eating the ram if you kept flying for a long time

Wouldn't this result in another death and the loss of $1000 dollars worth of electricity?
