What type of GTA is this?
This GTA would be a sort of rags to riches story. You start off as a small petty criminal in Dublin, move up to become a prolific international drug smuggler, human trafficker, murderer, operating between these 3 cities building your criminal empire in Western Europe.
The Second Summer of Love is a name given to the period in 1988-89 in Britain, during the rise of acid house music and the euphoric explosion of unlicensed MDMA ("Ecstasy")-fuelled rave parties. The term generally refers to the summers of both 1988 and 1989 when electronic dance music and the prevalence of the drug MDMA fuelled an explosion in youth culture culminating in mass free parties and the era of the rave. LSD was also widely available and popular again[.The music of this era fused dance beats with a psychedelic, 1960s flavour, and the dance culture drew parallels with the hedonism and freedom of the Summer of Love in San Francisco two decades earlier. Similarities with the Sixties included fashions such as Tie-dye. The smiley logo is synonymous with this period in the UK. –WIKI: http://en.wikipedia...._Summer_of_Love
Dublin is smallest city but will have the most countryside. It's a small city and doesn't have skyscrapers or anything but it has a good amount of crime such as armed robbery, drugs, prostitution, fighting etc. It will be the place where you start off. You get involved in some low-key drug dealing, learn your fighting skills in Pub Brawls and some weapon skills (maybe off some ex-IRA) member /bomb making skills. Dublin is where you learn your trade. The edge of the map is cut off by the Dublin Mountains surrounding the city on one side but there's nice countryside where you have safe houses and where you stash drugs on farms or there are Ecstasy making factories etc. There’s a large harbour which will play a vital role in the game play. This is where you will learn to get your Boating Licence to bring drug consignments by sea from London. Licences cost money to take. Don’t worry, you’ll be making enough money through drug dealing and selling stolen cars.
Gangland killings, linked to dissident republicans and Real IRA.
London is the largest city. It's big, dark, grey and gritty and has the biggest but most secure Airport in the game. It is also has the most roads, infrastructure, cars, customisation garages etc. The focus in London is heavy on driving with a cool orbital motorway surrounding the city. There are big skyscrapers there too. You may have been a bigger criminal in the city of Dublin but when you arrive in London you start off on the bottom again. You get work as a driver for various gangs and this will be where you gain your Advanced Drivers Licence. The best way around London is by car and sometimes Metro (London Underground) A Key feature of London would be its huge and extremely busy Airport. London Airport is also one of the most secure places in the game. It will be the type of place you see but you can hardly gain access until you complete your Pilots Licence.
Amsterdam is the medium sized city. It’s full of alley ways, bridges and canals. The best way to travel in Amsterdam is by foot, bicycle or even canal (as it’s famous for all its cyclists/bikes) Streets are narrow and are densely populated pedestrians. There will be a few outer big roads but the more central you get, the better it is to jump on a bike or even a moped, Vespa etc. There will be so many people having funny conversations; stoned people, drunken people, prostitutes etc. The conversations you will hear there will be hilarious. Here you will also eventually be able to afford trying to get your pilots licence which is the most expensive license in the game. After you aquire it you will be able to fly your own huge consignments to London and Dublin.
Notice all the canals in blue. This GTA would have each city concentrate on different elements of travel by land, sea and air.
Depending on the weather, choosing your mode of transport when smuggling drugs is severely important. If there is high winds, thunder and lightening, it would not be advisable to travel with 100Kgs of cocaine in your aircraft. Drugs you buy are cash up front and if you crash and lose the drugs you loose your money. The more drugs in your plane or boat the more susceptible the vehicle is to either crashing or capsizing. Weather updates are available and will be important to keep an eye on. Upgrading to better boats for cash will lessen the chance of your boat capsizing in bad weather.
- You can buy properties all over the place and sell them at will, depending if you need the extra cash or you just don't use it often. Houses and apartments will be expensive, especially ones in central London but they will be in the best locations. Towards the end of the game or after 90% you may have the money to buy some of the mansions. Mansions will have all features; Phones, large garages, security, helipads, arcade games, boating shed/pontoon and secret escapes tunnells. It will be very hard to afford them. Only true GTA fans willl own them! When you manage you buy a mansion you will find a mail order catalogue. In this catalogue you can order any car in the game and a selection of rare cars list will be there. Cars that do not spawn anywhere in the game.
- There will be a good few banks that you can rob over and over. Some will be more secure than others and will need you to hire a crew of people to help you. You must pay your crew well but there's more money to be earned in harder heists.
- You can rob cars and sell them.
- You can buy clothes.
- You can buy bodygaurds (weekly wage so you must keep earning money all the time you keep to your gaurds)
- Illegal gambling: High medium and low stakes.
- Betting shops. They are so much fun. Bet on the football and horses.
-Businesses: You can set up brothels in any city. In Dublin you can set up a few and will rarely if ever have any trouble from rival pimps or police. However, the income wont be as high as London or Amsterdam. In London you can set up brothels but rival gangs try to destroy them more frequently as there's so much competition. One way to stop your brothels being attacked is to pay local police and gain REP. REP is basically the ranks you earn in GTA. The higher your rep, the less likely gangs will go near your businesses. In Amsterdam when you are an experienced criminal you can have a legit whore-house, that cost millions to buy but will generate you thousands of cash a day that just pops in to your account at the end of every in game month.
*Basically there wasn't an incentive to earn money in GTA IV. I loved making cash in San Andreas. In GTA IV money didn't play much of a role and it wasn't rewarding like San Andreas was when you bought property and won cash on the horses. This game would make it easy for you to spend all your cash but if you are good you can earn a lot from many different ways. All mainly illegal of course!*
- Police: will get suspicious of you if you are driving erratically (when you have drugs in your van, truck or car) and search the vehicle you are in. So, you must drive carefully when you are transporting drugs. This goes for landing planes too. If you f*ck up your landing, Airport police will investigate the matter. So, there’s no point in even trying to fly them in to London Airport unless you have mastered flying and have you licence too.
The quicker you transport the drugs, the better price you get for them. It’s not a race against time but you will be faced with such dilemmas....
It's hard to smuggle drugs in to London Airport because of security unless you have a pilots licence so you have to think creatively. If you want to smuggle a load 20kg of hash and 5,000 ecstasy tablets in to London do you fly them in at the risk of flying in to a high security London Airport? Or do you go by boat and run risk of getting stung by the heavily patrolled Amsterdam-London channel. OR do you fly to of the relatively low security at Dublin Airport and bring them by boat from Dublin to London (countryside) and then drive them to London? The choice is yours (also depending on the weather!)
*I'm gonna come up with a lose, short story and work on my protagonist and some radio stations soon.*
Types of missions:
Dublin will be like a sort of training ground before you leave for London and eventually Amsterdam. Here, you'll learn how to brawl in Dublin pubs. Each pub will have a room where you can do illegal fighting. There are 4 pubs, each one with it's own diffuculties and you can learn different moves in different pubs.
Missions you will do are, drug couriering, and selling grams of coke, just like in the Scarface game. You will also do weapons training off an ex-para military outfit (parody of IRA) that rob banks etc.
You will also do some import/export missions in Dublin Port and also learn how get you Boating licence so you can smuggle drugs from London.
After rising to the top of your game in Dublin, there's only one place to go next to expand you empire and import larger quantities. You want to cut out your middle-man and buy drugs more directly so you go to London and bring your own drugs back in larger bulks than you used to buy. Each smuggling mission is a big task and is very hard in the game. You can smuggle as many consigments as you want, and try sell them, but, it takes long and if you over do it you may flood a country/city with too much drugs and it might push the price down or there wont be much demand.
Firstly though, you need to make connections to get to the big players in London (for the drug connections), so you start off as a driver or gangs in London, eventually gaining the trust of more higher up gang members. To gain trust you can, do human trafficking mission or driving missions (robbing banks etc) Once you gain trust, you can start buying drugs off them.
When you want better quality drugs and wholesale ecstasy, you to come to Amsterdam. Amsterdam will also be the place where you finally get a chance to learn your pilots licence. Earning your pilots licence will unlock large commercial planes for the first time and it will be the quickest most effective way to smuggle huge consignments of drugs. If you can eventually smuggle more drugs in a large cargo plane, you will only have to smuggle every now and then - not much as you will make so much money each time.
| DutchAmsterdam.nl — With the arrest of five pimps and four operators of window brothels in Amsterdam’s Red Light District the Netherlands’ Public Prosecution Service believes it has captured an international network of human traffickers.|
Enforcing their demands with brute violence the gang forced a large number of women to work as prostitutes.
Dutch newspaper De Volkskrant reports the women, recruited in both Hungary and the Netherlands, were constantly monitored and were ferried between their home and work. They were not allowed to have social contacts outside of the network.
Three of the pimps are women from Hungary. The two men are from Hungary and the Netherlands. The brothel operators are Dutch, two of them of Turkish origin.
- Gang wars:Gang wars are started by going around and shooting up a rivals brothel, hideout or hangout spot. Gang wars will appear in London. Different gangs have their own cars.
