I'm working on a concept currently, although it hasn't been posted, but it's difficult due to the lack of feedback from this silent discussion. A reboot of this topic would be nice to get people more involved, perhaps?
Why don't you just go ahead and post your concept?
You've got a location, you've got a story. Let's see you post it up and we can cut it up in there.
I'm working on my GTA UK concept again
With the North/South location and the two protags? I've always liked the idea of that. Just because the UK is so diverse.
You know what? f*ck it, wait a few days my 1976 San Fierro concept will be up and running. For some reason I just let the idea in my head die, but if ideas like that are what needs to keep this place up and running well f*ck I'll do everything I can to help it rival BAAFLC or COTS for quality.
Fighting talk. I can't wait to see it up and running. From the brief mission ideas you posted not long back I'm pumped for it. Not to mention the Northern San Andreas setting.
But six months after V is release what happens? It's dead, and all because there's nothing to really do to expand it story-wise.
Too true that. Maybe we were spoiled with GTAIV's story or V was just wank. The most obvious thing for me is the lack of any LSPD database. There's just... sod all that exists outside the realm of the Michael, Franklin, Trevor partnership. You would expect three times the protagonists, three times the story detail.
Hell, with the LCPD database, I remember we had one whole topic just dedicated to pulling out the characters concepts could be made about.
And no one's attempted a GTAV DLC yet. Except maybe Osric and his Mafia themed DLC.
I wouldn't mind a North Yankton prequel. Or a younger Franklin. F*ck it, even Trevor as a drifting heist man.
Martin Madrazo's rise to power in the 80s or 90s? Karen's work with the IAA? How TLMC arrived in Blaine County?
What about the hustler from Hood Safari? Gus Mota and the Vagos? Clutching at straws now, ain't I?
Take BAAFLC for example, one mission for the story, fifteen or twenty posts were coming for it. I don't know but I can assume what is the problem.
Just to play Devil's advocate, we didn't have the Creators Lounge back then. We made our topics and came up with our ideas in them. In other words, we just got on with making the concept and came up with the rest as we went on. Much discussion would populate the topic. Sh*t, concepts were pretty much word of mouth when it came to who was making what.
I could drag five or ten ideas from the back pages of this topic that could be fully fledged concepts. Three or four would be my own but, y'know, life's a bitch sometimes.
As far as posts go. If the eight concept posters from this page alone each went into a thread and said, "Nice mission. I would like to see more." then there'd be no post issue. No need for long, drawn out feedback; just let the guy know you're reading it.
- I'm going to start a topic named "FCP (Forums' Creative People)" in which we'll discuss about creators around here; It's basically a list. The general idea is that you nominate one of creators and give link(s) to his/her concept(s). Then, you'll vote for his/her best concept. Finally, his/her name and his/her best concept chosen by you, will be added to list of Forums' Creative People.
What would be discussed about creators? Once a creator makes the list and is voted for and all that stuff, what happens then?
GTA: San Fierro (do you remember it?) is going to have a first year anniversary at September.
I think my first concept was made in 2008. I can't really remember. Six years. F*ck, that's older than some of the members on GTAF.
