For the next game, I deffinately think its about time, we can control, convertible cars roofs. For example, if you jumped into a Stallion, we should be able to press a button, which would make the roof go up or down.

Agreed, when it rains it's a bit odd to not put the roof up, would be a simple but nice feature.

Yeah, I agree. It should have been in GTA IV but can't win them all. I wanted this feature for a while. After all, you have the option to turn your headlights on/off, so I don't see what's the big problem.

Hopefully next time around.

Actually, it is, well in the day time only.

Yes, but in the time it would take for the roof to go all the way up/down, you'd be able to spot the same type of car you're driving with the roof in the position you want, in the same color. And even before it finished bring the top up/down, you could powerslide in front of it, hop out, steal it and get driving again.

So really, that's a kind of pointless feature and I think Rockstar could be spending their time developing more useful ideas.

Yeah you could do that, just like you should be able to decide to not do that and press a button in the car you are already in. As for it being pointless and time spent better on other things, there are many things that some may deem pointless. Like car washes that wash your car maybe?

Agree to this post. Convertible cars useless, Kevosk? So a character talking trash is essential in-game, huh? Prove me wrong, expert.

Tbh, controlling a convertiable car's roof is the equivalent of moving a forklift's forks up and down.

I actually hoped that this feature should appear in GTA IV but it didn't. So my hope goes on.

...what are you on? I never even mentioned characters talking trash, I just said that it would be a pointless feature, as Rockstar could be spending their time doing more important things (IE, refining Euphoria or adding more guns). That is to imply that Rockstar's staff have enough advil to peruse these forums for ideas.

Also, what's with that expert comment, too? I never said that I was an expert, and I'm not in it to prove you wrong! You are much too jumpy.

I really dont see what the flame war is about.
Its not that big of a deal, and it wouldnt take
much of R*'s time to impliment.

Its just an option to put the roof up or down.

Oh just forget that post, my friend. I'm very n00bish that time (by the term n00bish I meant that I'm very sleepy and couldn't understand anything about the other posts).

I post decent, it's just that I'm frustrated by that time...tounge.gif

would be easier, instead of having two different types of the same car, one with roof one without.

Yeah this is a great idea.

Perhaps use a system similar to accessing the police database in a police car in GTA4.

When your convertible car is stationary, press L1, and your roof goes up or down.

And when it is raining, all the convertible cars on the road should have their roofs up, and when sunny, they should mostly have their roof down.

You can do it in Midnight Club Los Angeles, so I do think it'll be possible in the next GTA.

In one of CVG's videos and I believe it was when they first seen GTA Online in person they said the man jumped into the sports car and his roof went down..With that being said..it's already been included ladies and gentlemen.

Maybe you can?

You can see the roof open in one of the trailers right?

I'm sure you could Press L3 on the PS3 controller to pop that roof open/close
