Hello, In this thread I will give you Tips on how to create a GTA thread. The first topic was created by ScratchCard but he has left the Forums so I thought I would create a version 2.0.

Idea/Location/Wish/Theory/other

Before you start a new thread, think about how far you thread Is going to go. Is It just going to cause arguments turn.gif

Is It something you would like to see In GTA V? Click Here

Is It a Location you would like to see In GTA V? Click Here

If you have any artwork post It here Click Here

If you have a Map, Please post It Click Here

A GTA Concept Thread

What Is a Concept thread? Well Its just fan made topic (Not official) You choose a Location, Storyline, Characters, Everything a GTA game has.

Example 1
Example 2
Example 3
Example 4
Example 5
Example 6

So lets move on!

I'm using some threads as an Example. Please don't take It as a insult.

Making a Concept takes time and effort. Here are some Tips:

Proper grammar. Little mistakes aren't that awful but Punctuation and Capital Letters
Spell the Title right.Seriously
Have a Nice layout. Not Like This But Like This
Put thought Into your setting
Same goes for your time setting and think, What time setting suits my Location?
You can request for Logo's, titles etc Here But dont take their work for granted!
Try and make your Concept Stand Out by having features that have not been Included In past GTA'S
Update your Thread on a regular basis so you don't loose Interest
Ask for It to be added In the GTA Concept Index
Detail Is Important. What Weapons are In the game? What Songs are Included?

Questions & Answers

Q: Who Is the Section Moderators
A: Ryan and K^2

Q: My Topic got Locked
A: That Is not a Question, that topic will get Locked now tounge.gif

Q: Why are members not replying?
A: Be patient, maybe you haven't put a lot of effort In.

Q: Why Is the section called GTA V?
A: Because many people think the NeXt GTA will be GTA V

Creating a Poll
There Is quite a lot of pointless Polls In this Section. When were discussing features, vehicles, songs etc We don't need Polls In every Topic you create.
Here Is a example of a pointless Poll Not like This But Like This

Gen Chat Poll Index. Click Here

Credits: Thanks to GTA_ Panda for the banner smile.gif
And ScratchCrad for the idea.
Claude94 for a idea

Creating a DLC Concept thread

A lot of people are creating DLC topics (DLC for GTA IV) So I figured this section would help. Same tips as the ones I used before smile.gif

Here are some examples of some good DLC topics, maybe take inspiration from them icon14.gif (If I don't include your DLC please don't take offense)

Example 1
Example 2
Example 3
Example 4
Example 5
A nice guide made by akavari. So you want to make a DLC topic

Try and keep your DLC to limit of 40 missions remember It Isn't a full Game wink.gif And for people who reply to DLC topics and say ''R* are not making any more DLCs''I think the topic creator knows that, remember Its only fan made and not official.

Helpful Codes
This Is for people who are not familar with codes and such.

If you want to post an image, for example a Logo.
CODE
[IMG] [/IMG]


Put the URL inside the two Image Codes.

If you want to post a Link
CODE
[URL] [/URL]


Put the Link Inside the Codes

BB Codes

Click here for all the BB codes you need smile.gif This should help you out a lot icon14.gif

I like this, it could become useful for people who are not that familiar with creating such topics.
I would pin this if i was a moderator or Admin.

Good job Tommy icon14.gif

That's a good thread. Too bad most will still ignore it and go about their business as they see fit.

I don't think its going to change anything. No one likes to read. If they don't read the pinned topics, what makes this topic any different?

Jacky Fiend's topic is a legend...it has a full detailed synopsis of the story and then some features to accompany it, how does that make it a wishlist? Technically every concept in this forum is just a complex wishlist.

Jacky Fiend's topic was brilliant.

Sadly this is true. It's a good guide, but experience suggests it won't make any difference. Plus, there's already a lot of pinned topics (too many, in my opinion) and the more you add the less people generally take notice of them. The limit should always be 4 or 5, as far as I'm concerned.

Admittedly the Las Venturas concept by Jacky Fiend is a little dated now but I believe it is rightfully included and seen as legendary by some simply because it inspired the people that make the concepts we see today. Maybe it isn't akin to the present wave of topics but a lot of hard work went into it; it's all pure content and not overwhelmingly graphics based. Isn't that what this topic is all about? Guidance for those who wish to make a concept thread? What better guidance than Jacky's topic?

This is a good guide for those who need to know the basics of making a concept Tommy. Well done.

Thanks guys but I think this should get pinned. New members dont use the Wishlist topic at first then members always give them a link to the topic, I think we could do that.

Very good Tommy, this could be useful to the newcomers on how to make concept topics so well done this should definitely be pinned as concepts are the most things made on the GTA section and the most popular.

Also san andreas state you obviously have not looked around here long enough or you are just completely retarded Jacky's concept was the best back when it was active. It is simply a legend of a topic along with GTA Lincoln State and every concept made now cant compare to it.

Put something in mentioning the detail of concept threads. IE: do not make a thread and have like 5 lines of dialogue then "i will add more later" before you make the concept brainstorm your idea, and think it through, make sure you add descriptions of everything (weapons, cars, characters, GAMEPLAY).
It should be well organized and quite lengthy.

With or without a pin, if the main aim of the topic is to provide hints and tips to people who make threads in this section that lack in detail or lack meaning then surely it can still serve as the primary resource without being stickied? If you're talking about posting up in such a thread and directing them here with a link that is. After all, stickies are just references themselves, aren't they? They're merely always in view. If adamcs knows that there are too many pinned threads and people won't take as much notice as they should then it's pointless championing this to join them. Not knocking your hard work or anything Tom just saying this can still be a successful resource without being at the top of the page.

You should do a section on setting out arguments and debates, seen as quite a few of these often veer off into slagging matches due to the lack of actual content to discuss.

Jacky Fiend himself was a ledgend, I miss that guy we used to be very good friends and was a clever person aswell.
