You should reincarnate the infamous Alex Jackson as the protagonist, imo. I always envisioned him as looking and behaving as Michael K Williams, especially his fetish for firearms.

I probably could work this, Alex had to go into hiding in the space between D&S and the untitled short story I was writing; considering how close NYC and Baltimore are, I could give Alex a Brother Mouzone-esque reputation down in Bitterplace; an out of towner known for being brutal but level headed.

I'll get around to it eventually....Battlefield 3 has been Pacmanning my time o.O

I love your idea of a "street" GTA, but I was thinking, perhaps Detroit would be a better location?
It is more familiar to non-American audiences; it's internationally associated with gangs, drugs and poverty; it's very unique and it's probably in general more interesting than Baltimore. Either way I'd love to help you out with your topic, PM me when you get round to starting it if you want.

I've been thinking a lot about a concept which I have long wished to create. The setting would be a condensed version of Tokyo and surrounding wilderness. I know a lot of people won't like this idea, but I think it would be perfectly suitable for GTA, the amount of scope for satire is huge.
My idea was to mix Takeshi Miike's over the top violence and insane characters with Takeshi Kitano's hard, brooding storylines and cinematic scenes. Before you judge, watch these videos and tell me this isn't perfect for GTA:

All this hype surrounding GTA V almost makes me want to have another go at creating a GTA VI concept thread. Maybe I could remake my infamous GTA Las Venturas concept...

They've been running a Casino marathon on TV and it has reminded me of that thread. Although what could you do different or improve with a remake?

Im working on a sequel to my old topic GTA: King of The City. If you have some ideas post them. BTW, this is NOT a DLC I decided to make it more of a short full game (like GTA LCS and VCS) This is how I plan the story:

Two years after the events of King of The City Willy Valerio is at the top and The Dominicans are now the biggest gang next to Liberty City's Italian and Russian Mobs. However, being at the top isn't as easy as he thought. Rival Gangs are trying to overpower him and Willy has just been robbed. Willy must help his gang and get more money.

    Best Concept Story 2010 "The Code of The Streets"

#69

Posted 12 December 2011 - 09:21 PM

Since everybody seems to be posting news and updates about their concept topics here I'm gonna take some time and post some updates on my projects.

I'll start with Family Ties. Due to college I have been unable to write anything further for this topic however I have some time off coming up before xmas wherein I plan on finishing off Chapter 8. After this I'm gonna take another break from it for a few weeks and continue on with it full scale in late January.

In addition to the aforementioned topic as of late I have also been working on a reworking of Sergi's Liberty City Chronicles which I first began formulating ideas for back in 2010. I had originally planned on this being the follow up to The Code of The Streets (before abondoning in favour of the more narrative driven Family Ties) since it was one of the concept topics that I really liked when I first joined here and have always thought it was a shame that the idea was never truely explored or expanded upon.

I have spoken previously about my vision for the topic but for those of you who are unaware I plan on having it be a story with three different protagonists (who all appear in GTA IV) and multiple parts spanning more than 10 years between 1993 and 2005. The idea is quite ambitious and I am not really sure how in depth I will actually go with the story but as it it stands I am almost positive that I am going to go ahead with it at some point in the new year.

hell yes MOB, sounds like a plan!

this Bawl'mer concept has been giving me some headache...it seems basing a concept in a city I dont know is harder than it first appears. I'm proposing to move on from Baltimore and head back to Liberty for a corner boy concept with a Chinatown Wars style twist...you can deal drugs. only from set corners, earned through turf wars. to eliminate rival gangs you'd have to first go to war with them over corners, start dropping their street dealers to lure out the enforcers. after this, its intimidation and shock tecnique's to coax enforcers into giving up important locations; LT hangouts, safehouses and stash houses. once you've hit them up and killed every prominent member, your gang has dismantled the opposition, leaving any untaken corners now under your control and obsorbing any remaining gang members into your gang, thus increasing your influence. with every gang you eradicate, you move up the ranks, eventually becoming an underboss.

such a half baked plan, but shows a lot more potential than the Bawl'mer idea.

I'd like to collaborate with C4C to remake Luisbellic's King of the City. The general idea of it had a lot of potential to be a realistic drug dealing simulator but LB took it in a different direction. With our help it could live up to what C4C is trying to achieve (a near-replica of The Wire), and since LB is looking to better his concept it would be killing two birds with one stone.

go for it mate, are we still basing it around the Hispanic populace of Uptown? I know it's tempting to go full on and almost recreate the Barksdale/Stanfield war using Northwood gangs; but I think if we keep it with Hispanic's, it'd serve as a spirutual successor to what would have been Season Six, which by all accounts was going to set its basis in Hispanic's and Dominican's. and we can cameo hapless dealers Armando and Rique if we stick with the Hispanic outlook wink.gif

I would definitely keep the focus on the Dominicans, Willy Valerio and his gang in particular. The main character should probably be Valerio, so you'll be in a position to call the shots and feel in control of the drug politics going on. I was also thinking the dealer 'Papi' would be a decent protagonist, but he doesn't look like he carries many venerable traits. I'd still feature him in the story as a distributor for the Dominicans.

Papi is a hell of a good candidate to build up and shape into our own character given his miniscule amount of screen time, his quick paced departure from the f*cked up deal could serve as him being relatively streetwise but still younger and fit enough to get out of there rickey-tick. I think we could work it that he runs his own subsect of the gang, say runs the Cerveza Heights sector for instance. at least he'd be calling the shots for a large amount but still be able to take jobs from his higher uppers. nothing worse than being your own boss and not being able to do anything!

or we could bestow him Teddy Benavidez's tower depending on when we start the story, use Teddy's death as a middle point, then introduce major drug dealing through the towers, instead of street dealing.

The way you described that scenario instantly reminded me of D'Angelo Barksdale, and I can see Papi being perfect in that capacity. As a lieutenant to Willy, he could balance off between dealing and enforcing for the organization. I couldn't see him rising to the very top of the organization, but after a certain point in the game where he's proven his worth, he could possibly succeed the late Teddy Benavidez as second-in-command. That could serve his the apex of power; Papi would be to Willy Valerio as Stringer Bell is to Avon Barksdale. Thoughts?

yeah, that'd the beauty of not knowing much of Papi's background; we can give him whatever backstory we wish. maybe Teddy was into wholesale and the story behind the Armando/Rique deal is to finalize the first package and Teddy uses Papi as a runner, yet once it turns sour because Papi managed to high-tail it out of there so quick, Teddy could see that Papi is a promising star and is used as a protege up until Teddy's death.

when were you thinking of starting the story in terms of when IV/TLAD/BOGT started?

Yeah, It's still being worked on, slowly but surely. At the moment, things is still in the development stages, and I'm juggling from one task to another, lately its been more of writing the script, planning page spreads, drawing maps of the counties, among other things. And with my current work schedule, I only get the weekends to really get deep into working on it. If anything, I'll just update the post linked in the sig.

To me this seems like a good role for Teddy since going by the information given on the LCPD database he is not actually part of the ND3 but rather just an associate. It does also list him as a "street dealer" but this could definitely just be misinformation on the part of the police since if they could peg him as a wholesaler then he would likely be doing 100 years upstate. The fact that he has the power to control a whole tower block and an army of soldiers suggests that he is in fact way more than a street dealer.

I liked what LuisBellic did by creating a friendship between Willy and Teddy and used his death as a way of intensifying a war between The Dominicans and the Albanians IIRC but it was really just a plot point based on connecting two otherwise unconnected dots based on theory and assumption. I also feel that a lot more could've been made out of the relationship between The Dominicans and Ray Boccino, maybe Ray could bank roll a package for Teddy who then acts as the ND3's main supplier (on a buy now pay later kind of deal which ensures that Teddy doesn't f*ck them over with garbage) however certain trouble arises that prevents Willy and the boys from making money on the drugs and thus prevents Teddy from getting payed (leading to his death). Given Ray's greedy nature though he would likely find another dealer to put the squeeze on and would then begin to strong arm Willy's gang leading to further trouble.

Just putting some ideas out there guys you can take them on board or ignore them it's up to you

I PM'd Akavarri about it, and my idea wass to have Teddy operating as a Tower Chief and Alonzo as his LT on the street, but Teddy still taking orders from top brass, which once Papi takes Teddy's position, he still gets enough power to shake a jewel encrusted pimp stick at but still also takes orders from the top. this would put Papi on par with Oscar and Alonso Gomez, who I think should run one of the towers next to Teddy's, leaving the towers and the surrounding corners as ND3 turf. Willy Valerio would be at the top of the food chain, with Papi, Alonso and one other running the three towers, each of them with a street LT below them, Papi bringing one of his best corners boy with him.

I dont think the Albanian's should appear, I think it should stick to the Uptown gangs warring over turf and product.

Yeah the Albanians would be kind of a bad choice for inclusion since they are a Bohan/Broker based gang. There are enough gangs in Uptown to be going on with anyway, you have the big dog Playboy X and his crew, Clarence Little and his Eastside crew (which could possibly be taken over by one of his Lieutenants after his death), The Dominicans, The Spanish Lords in East Holland, The Angels of Death, The Red and Blue clothed Gang bangers (aka MOB) that hang around the projects aswell as other smaller crews which could be factored in such as the Uptown Riders etc.

The Ray Boccino connection could possibly be linked to the infamous heroin brought in by the Triads? Say Teddy struck a deal to buy the heroin from the Pegorinos on consignment (pay half now, sell the drugs, pay rest back later). The ensuing fiasco would cause Teddy's refusal to pay. Of course I'm just spit-balling here. It says in the database that Teddy is operating under protection from the Pegorinos, which could mean anything really. I wouldn't give it much mind right now, I'd rather a story not delve directly into mafia affairs for once.

I would use Clarence Little's death (and his lieutenant) as an incentive for the Dominicans to start usurping the low-rise projects from the East Holland crew. This could serve as Papi's big break, overseeing the new asset until eventually inheriting the high-rises from Teddy. Joe Corrola's death should also be a deliberate move to relieve the North Holland Hustlers of their Pavano connection, so the Dominicans can wholesale their own product to them.

I was gonna say get the inevitable mafia connection (inevitable due to Teddy's situation) out of the way before the second half of the game starts, set up a connection outside of the mafia and then bring the trouble back to the home turf. just dabbling into La Cosa Nostra would provide enough of a backstory for Teddy and give a reason for Papi's rise, then once the mafia is out of the way, keep the connection as Russian, almost a nod to the Greek's of The Wire.

I've started a rough turf map, and by rough I mean "lines on a map" rough, but it's a good indication of who runs where. I'll post them once complete, I've only done Uptown and Broker/Dukes as to only use only the relative gangs. I've used fictional names for a few gangs; the Spanish Lords now consists of a few gangs united as is similar to the New Day Co-Op in a way, albiet without a spokesman, it is simply a truce for all Latino gangs not to kill eachother on sight.


Uptown Turf Map (paaaaaaagestretcher) >.<

Broker-Dukes Turf Map (also a stretcher.....flubbery)

I'll write up gang profiles once approved.

To be honest I'd rather use some sort of off-shore drug cartel as their supplier, especially since the Dominicans seem to be allied with the Spanish Lords. The gangs real life counterpart, Dominicans Don't Play, is connected to Columbian drug cartels. Also instead of adding a bunch of new major gangs we could just break the current ones down into different sets and crews, and then introduce a bunch of independent kingpins that aren't necessarily part of a gang label. Take Elizabeta Torres, a powerful yet sovereign drug figure, as an example of what I mean.
