This isn't the best, but it was really really fun to do. Making the logos for the radio stations was awesome! I hope to finish this soon.

Year: 2010

Islands:
Beantown - (Boston, MA)
The most populated and crime ridden area in the game.
Surrounding areas include west MA (rural areas) and Cape Haddock to the East.

Namchester - (Manchester, NH)
A small city surrounded by rural neighborhoods.
To the north are the white mountains, further north is Canada. Very similar to the south part of San Fierro in GTA SA.

Canada - (Toronto, Canada)
After the mission, Oh Canada, the protagonist gains access to Canada. It costs money to cross the border. Different laws apply on this island.

Oldport - (Newport, RI)
The smallest of the major islands. This sea side city is home to several mansions and estates.

There is snow. While you may see snow while in Canada or on Mount Clinton, you may not see any in Oldport or Cape Haddock. The time of year is late fall and it stays that way, guaranteeing everybody the chance to see snow. With a snowy and icy terrain, comes vehicles that adapt to it...

user posted image

Rather than adding tons of new vehicles every game, this time its gonna be vehicles from past games, with different year models.

Returning Vehicles that werent in GTA 4:
- Stinger
- Cheetah
- Sadler
- Yosemite
- Mesa
- Deluxo
- Quad
- Stuntplane
- Nevada
- Mountain Bike
- BMX

Models:
- All vehicles have an 80's, a 90's and a 2000's varient. Some cars won't though because of the time they were first made and the time they stopped being made.

New:
- Skateboard
- Snowboard - only in minigame.
- Skis - only in minigame.

4x4:
Some vehicles come with 4 weel drive. Any vehicle can be modded to have it.

Police:
- 50% of police drive Crown Vics
- 30% drive Impalas and Chargers.
- 10% drive boats, dirtbikes, and ranchers.
- 5% are undercover.
- 3% drive swat.
- 2% drive coquettes.

Taxi:
- regular.
- impala.
- minivan.
- other.

Ambulance:
- Regular
- Van

**Vehicles drive the same as in IV, but they stall more and swerve when in snow at high speeds.**

user posted image

Combat: (mostly the same as IV)
Since a large portion of the mpa is woodland, using trees as cover is essential. It is also possible to climb a tree and snipe people. When on a branch, your enemy could shoot the branch or ram the tree with a car, causing you to fall. Any tree with low branches is possible to climb.
Shooting while in the water is now possible.
Blocking is easier.

Auto Theft:
Stealing cars isn't just about pressing Y or triangle. A hotwiring minigame will open up upon entering a vehicle that isnt yours.
This feature can be toggled on or off.

By far my favourite non San Andreas topic so far. Really like the fact that you included Canada. I know r* could make fun of it alot using many jokes and stuff. And really what sane person doesnt want to skydive off the cn tower?

Instead of Lady gaga- Poker Face you should put Eric Cartman- Poker Face

Very nice ideas. Really original.

Try to put in transparency around your image titles and radio station logos, instead of having a boring white background.

EDIT: The online TV is pretty much pointless when you already have a TV in your safehouse. Unless you meant the online TV to be catch-up/on demand type layout.

By online tv i meant like a youtube type thing. With videos created by random people in he game.

Sorry about the miley cyrus tounge.gif I would lmao if it was in a gta game though.

Eric Cartmans pokerface is 100% better than gagas. I cant believe I missed it.

@The Gurus logo: I like yours and I like mine. Well, I like the color of the green in mine better tounge.gif , yours gives it a older, almost spooky feel to it and I like that because it describes New England.

Thanks for the tip smile.gif
I know when you go to file>new you can select transparent for the background, but is that the only way? I don't want to recreate these images.

Take the images, open them up in PS and use the magic wand tool to select the white space, then delete it and save as PNG. This will leave rough edges but if you want smooth, make them again.

I updated each and every logo. The white around them has been removed and the Game logo is enlarged. Tomorrow I will start writing the story and hopefully a mission or two.

There are a couple "clues" that point towards New England. One is the Map inside Bahama Mama's and on the Platypus. The other is Packie taking off in a plane at the end of TBoGT. The last one is admittedly a bit of a stretch, but when think of Irish Americans, Boston is one of the first places that comes to mind. Besides all that, I like your topic.

THe story could take some hints from The Departed

That said, I think we're done with the Northeast for a bit.

The idea for this was heavily influenced by The Departed.
As for the northeast, I understand, but New England is really different from New York. Thats partially why I added Canada, its something new and different.

Yeah, but you know what I mean. LC in the Northeast, Vice in the South, and SA in the West seems to be the pattern. Otherwise nice thread!

As far as I know the only good location in Canada would be Toronto.

Ottawa is eh, Vancouver is somewhat similar to NYC.

Toronto has a city side and then a more ghetto low-class side, so it would be cool and a lot like previous GTA games.

Did I forget to put Toronto?

Yes, the Canada area would be a small version of Toronto. The cultural differences between the New England islands and Canada would be almost overwhelming. It would be almost like two completely different GTA games in one.

I like this, this is pretty good. I've always wanted to see New England or a location based on it be the setting for a GTA game.

BTW, are you from New England, cause I'm from New Hampshire, and I really would love to see Manchester get parodied in a GTA game.

That actually would have been a nice little inside joke for all the New Hampshirites on these forums.

Oh, BTW (again), do you think you could make a parody of Concord maybe?

I'll do my best to parody Concord. I don't go there much though so I'm not so familiar with it.
