| @Mr. C to the J, NOOOOOOO. MY other concept is based on the Midwest. It's called Huron because a lot of locations in the Midwest are named after Indian tribes, and the Hurons resided in the Midwest (I think). Plus, there's Lake Huron. |
Opps my bad, anyhow then, add Houston if you want to, it'd be a great addition, though, aren't you a bit high on the city count? Meh, it'll work out.
Well, not necessarily. Those extra smaller cities you see, aren't intended to be actual cities. They're meant to be more or less suburbs of each city (though with varying distances from the original city). So it would work out like this-
Saint City-> Baton Rouge (I haven't come up with a parodied name for the suburban places yet)
Artendale-> Jacksonville (bare with me)
Vice City-> Tampa/Ft. Myers/St. Petersburg (......)
And for a Houston parody, we'd have a very large, spread out, almost suburb in itself (Houston and Atlanta really stretch the use of the term "city"). It'd also be very country (you know how the south is), with a lot of open woods, with little developments and neighborhoods in between, in comparison to Atlanta's spread out streets connecting to other streets randomly in a large failure of an attempt of a grid, surrounded by heavy wooded areas (it sounds the same, but it's not). And for it's suburban counterpart (even though it doesn't really need one), we'd have either Port Arthur/Beaumont or Texas City/Galveston.
If you're wondering why I chose Houston and not Dallas or SA or something, two reasons.
A) It flows better with the plot, as New Orleans residents temporarily fled to Atlanta and Houston for refuge after Katrina (Jason would have affiliates in both cities who were original residents of NO/SC).
I'm thinking in terms of geography, the storyline will flow more or less in a square, moving from SC to Artendale, from Artendale to VC, and from VC to Houston (whatever I choose to call it). The suburbs will have very limited involvement in the storyline, with the exception of a few minor transition missions here and there. However, they can be used for gang and drug territory, as well as business opportunities.
