You morbid bastards. I am not dead. I am not happy to learn of my untimely demise at all. Grovel.
No, I'm doing this college thing now. I'm neck deep in assignments, not limestone. With work also it doesn't leave me with much time.
Phil. I'm actually doing one of those "tree" plans for college and it's a f*cking pain in the arse. If it works for you, why the hell not use it?
Seeing we've hit 1,000 posts in here recently, I'm welling up over here. I'll always have a soft spot for this place; it filled in the gaps left by a lack of any education. Expect me to look over your threads when I have time but I can't stress this enough: help each other out. Take the time to leave feedback and comments. Do not expect any in return if you cannot take the time out to do that for others. That goes for the lot of you, not just loud boy up there. Another thing I will make clear. We are not here to write concepts for you. This topic has never been about that and never will.
As I've seen my name banded about above alongside rightful legends such as Akavari and MOB, I'd like to use this post to point something out. All mentioned had successful concepts at one time or another. They weren't all great. I know I've made some right stinkers. I highly doubt they'd have been as successful if we hadn't all taken the time out to support one another's threads. I don't give a f*ck if you're a BAFTA winning writer. You get what you give. You want that feedback you make a point of dropping a comment on every concept you see.
Hell, if it will remedy any ill feeling, I will personally take the time out weekly to compile the list of people and their topics who want feedback and post it here to see that it is given.
I have this idea with logo, names and map but I'm not sure about posting it.
Tell me what do you guys about a GTA combining a revamped Vice City & Liberty City (without Alderney or Dukes because of a "Mandy" super storm), following the story of an uprising member of The Lost MC (After the rampage of Trevor Philips, The Lost moved to Vice City's downtown), his girlfriend (non playable main character), and the middle-aged son of a high ranked criminal business man.
I don't like this at all. The first problem is The Lost. From what we're told everything they had left upped sticks and moved out to LS from LC. We're meant to believe they were all wiped out by Trevor, so what would be left over to move to Vice City? Them being in Vice just feels tacked on: a cheap replacement for Mitch Baker's club. Also, I don't buy anyone rising up the ranks of The Lost: what is there left to rise up? Who in their right mind would want to wear a TLMC patch after the embarrassment they endured during their time on the West Coast?
Second issue is with the location. The Lost without Alderney is like Vercetti without his Hawaiian Shirt - it just don't wear. There's so much history there. Sure, they had the Broker chapter but I'll always consider them a bunch of Alderney pisslickers. "Mandy" seems like a reason to get rid of Dukes because it was the most boring of the five boroughs. Me personally, I'd can Algonquin because of the super storm and incorporate bridges from Broker to a destroyed Alderney into your map with a possible incarnation of Staten Island to boot.
If you have everything written up and ready to post already, get 'er done. Don't listen to a naysayer like me telling 'ya you can't do it. Prove me wrong and send me a link when it's live.
