Las Venturas

user posted image

The City of Sin better known as Las Venturas has long been Americaís adult playground. Flashy lights, Large Casinos and beautiful women have always been the face of the city. But with the economic decline of recent years has left the city on the brink of destruction. Massive foreclosures and declining tourism has left the economy in ruin. Mexican Drug Cartels such as the Badillo and Ruiz cartels have also pumped the city full of street drugs for cheap and further increased the problem. Las Venturas now has one of the highest crime rates and foreclosure rates in the country with no sign of things improving in the near future.

Las Venturas is the 4th largest city in the state of San Andreas (Behind Los Santos, Los Puerta, San Fierro) and the only major city not located on the coast. It is one of the most visited cities in the country with millions coming to the strip annually. It contains some of the largest hotels in the world but as stated above it was hit hard by the economic recession.

Introduction

The game opens with a black screen "Rockstar Games presents, A Rockstar North Production". A lizard runs across the screen and the camera pans up to show a prison with the searchlights on and a faint siren heard. Two men are seen running over the hill away from the prison. The scene cuts to the men entering a trailer park in the desert. The men walk through the trailer park remaining in the shadows but a streetlight catches the back of one of the men. "SACF" is seen written across an orange jumpsuit. Out of the darkness a pickup truck speeds into the trailer park and parks in front of a trailer. A man stumbles out of the truck and storms into the trailer leaving the truck running "Home free baby! There's our chance!" says one of the men and the two men hop in the truck. You take control of the driver and your partner instructs you onto the highway. "Just follow the light! Venturas baby! The City of Sin!" A beam of light is seen shooting up into the sky and a strip of blue, red, gold and white light is seen on the horizon. You and your partner race down state highway 69 toward the oasis of light in the dark cold desert. Las Venturas, the city of Sin a city that has turned good men bad and rich men poor. When you reach the city you pass a large bright sine "Welcome to Fabulous Las Venturas, San Andreas"

Chapter I (Missions 1-11)

When you arrive in Las Venturas for the first time the protagonist says his first words "Feels good to be home" you and your partner drive to a motel located in North Venturas where he says they can get a change of clothes and lay low. Here is where you meet the owner of the motel a middle eastern man named Ramza Salah. He gives you and your partner a change of clothes and a place to stay. Here we learn that the protagonist is named Chris Brenner and his partner in the escape is named Kyle Miller. After a night at the hotel Chris and Kyle head over to Chris' childhood home in Southeast Venturas. When you arrive you find the house deserted with a for sale sign on the outside and Chris' family nowhere to be found. We also learn of Chris' background as a Marine in Iraq who returned to find his hometown in financial ruin and his family on the verge of falling apart. Over the next few missions you and Kyle live at the motel and do odd jobs for Ramza in order to pay for your stay. These jobs include the combat tutorial involving a shootout with crackheads who have infested Ramza's motel and driven away business "I can live with the Pimps, Hos and Drug pushers but the addicts. Can't live with em." say Ramza. Chris and Kyle also take up some work for one of Chris' childhood friends named Patrick who owns a mod shop only a few blocks from Chris' childhood home. Patrick gives Chris a cell phone to keep in touch. And In his missions you do a lot of driving and learn the layout of the city. As well as learn of the new car Mod features and Patrick's list of wanted vehicles for you to steal. The Act concludes with a shootout with the East Side disciples. A local street gang that's been putting pressure on Patrick's business.

Chapter 2 (Missions 11-20)

After Chris and Kyle help out Patrick in defending his shop from the Disciples Chris receives a call from Patrick's sister Kristi whom Chris had a fling with during his high school years. This starts a mission that involves taking Kristi out on a date to a comedy show at the Lion's Den casino. Afterwards you can call Kristi whenever you want to take her out and she becomes Chris' first girlfriend. Kyle gives Chris a ring and tells him to meet him at a bar located down the street from Ramza's Motel. He lets Chris know of a possible business connection with the Gambetti crime family out of Liberty City. He says they were once big players in Las Venturas but were pushed out by the F.I.B in the 1980s but now they want back into the city's crime world. They have set up operation at a quarry located just a few minutes south of the city. Chris and Kyle travel to the Hunter Quarry and meet up with the Gambetti's. The officer in command lets Chris and Kyle know that they have connections within the LVPD and could get police and F.I.B attention off of them if they help them take back some of their territory in Las Venturas. The two cannot refuse this offer. Chris takes the next few missions at the Hunter quarry office trailer working for the Gambettis on a small scale defending their interests from street gangs and the police. He also picks up work from Ramon Frank through his work with the Gambettis. The jobs he does for Ramon involve retrieving information on police corruption withing the LVPD that him and The Gambetti family could use to their advantage. He also tries to dig up some information on the whereabouts of his family by trying to look up any info he can find on the internet. This mission would serve as a brief intro to the internet. The Chapter ends when Kyle and Chris get sent to speak to a contact of the Gambetti family in Mitchell Springs.

More to come later....

In Las Venturas Stories you are able to rob stores at gunpoint. It is advised to wear a ski mask before you commit a robbery and you are able to call up one of your friends to help you on the robbery. There are many different types of stores that can be robbed. These include:

-Gas Stations (24/7)
-Liquor Stores
-Fast Food restaurants (Burger Shot, Cluckin Bell, Well Stacked Pizza etc.)
-Clothing Stores (Binco, Pro Laps)

The mechanics are simple. You enter the store and aim a gun at the cashier. There are different events that can happen during a robbery. The clerk could hit the alarm and give you an instant 3 star wanted level. The clerk could simply hand over the money without incident or the employees could draw weapons of their own. Once you have cleaned out the register you have the option of opening the safe in the manager's office to get more money. But when you are in the back room the clerk will most likely hit the alarm giving you the wanted level. But if you have a partner with you they can watch the employees to keep them from activating the alarm. The payout from these robberies ranges from a couple hundred dollars to a few thousand. Time of day and the business of the store affect the amount of money they hold. But higher payout stores are most likely to give you a wanted level if you rob them.

Burglaries

Burglaries are another option for earning more cash. Unlike armed robberies these must be conducted with a friend but only after a certain story mission. These are started by calling up the friend and telling him you want to hit a house tonight. If you call him during the day time he will call you once night falls and tell you where to meet him with the van. Your friend will park in an alley somewhere with a black van and when you go and get in the van your friend will list off some houses he has cased out as potential targets. Up to 3 options will be presented on the radar and you commit to a house by pulling into a marker arrow near it. Giving you an opportunity to drive by each house to see which one you want to break into. Once you commit to a house your first objective is to find a way in while your friend keep watch out front with the truck. You are automatically given a crowbar to break open windows and occasionally you will be lucky enough to find an open window. Once you are inside the house you must find an object to steal (TV, Computers, Entertainment systems, jewelry etc.) you can stuff small items like jewelry, money, CDs and DVDS into your bag but computers and TVs must be carried out one at a time. You must also not wake the occupants of the house if they are home. A noise meter similar to the one in the "Home invasion" mission from San Andreas appears on the screen if the house is occupied. If you wake the inhabitants you are given a 3 star wanted level and your partner will take off if you take too long to emerge from the house. Once you have something you can place it in the back of the van. You can go back as many times as you want until the truck is full or until daylight is less than an hour away. Once you are done burglarizing the house without being spotted you drive the van to a lockup where you and your partner sell the loot and divide the money by a 60/40 split in your favor. Payout can range from as low as $100 from an unsuccessful trip to up to as high as $10000 from a very successful one.

Friendships/Girlfriends

Friendships and Girlfriends return in Las Venturas Stories. A lot of people complained about this feature in GTA IV but i liked it. There are some changes though. Friends have no abilities or benefits and benefits and are merely someone to do the mini games and hang out with to hear some interesting dialogue along the way. You can also take your friends on armed robberies and friends are also required to do burglaries with. Girlfriends also don't have benefits and work basically the same way. So friendships are just a little diversion to undertake. Here is a list of possible friends and girlfriends (By order of appearance). All friends are met through the main story.

-Kyle Miller
-Patrick Perry
-Michael Goldman
-Miguel Vega

Here is a list of possible girlfriends.

Police response

Las Venturas is patrolled and policed by the Las Venturas police department. Police vehicles include a Cruiser, Patrol as well as motorcycles and helicopters. The Strip is patrolled by bike cops. The desert and small town are patrolled by the San Andreas Highway Patrol who have Different cars and have their jail and dispatch station in Mitchell Springs. And SWAT appear at higher levels.

Wanted Level

*=One maybe two foot cops come to arrest you.
**=More police respond and will shoot on sight if you are holding a weapon.
***=A lot more cops arrive and a police helicopter joins the chase.
****=The police amp up their response and more helicopter arrive. police shoot on sight with no questions asked.
*****=The local SWAT team appear with the intention to kill. They drop from choppers and arrive in APC's
******=The SWAT team brings out their armored tank and the sky buzzes with multiple choppers and an Annihilator.

Combat

Combat in Las Venturas Stories bares resemblance to the combat seen in GTA IV and Red Dead Redemption and Max Payne 3. The core combat revolves around using cover and includes lock on for weapons. You have the ability to blind fire around corners and over objects. Some elements taken from Red Dead Redemption are the ability to crouch and executions at close range when you are not in danger. Some elements taken from Max Payne 3 are the weapon wheel system and the ability to go prone. You can fire out of vehicles the same way you can in GTA IV. For the first time in the GTA series you have the ability to take human shields. This works like it does in Saints Row 2. You press the Y or Triangle button when standing next to someone to take a human shield. Your hostage may or may not fight back and even after they die you can continue to drag them around as a shield.

I think you mean post traumatic stress disorder, postpartum depression is what women get after they've given birth.

Why don't you just make the map with Paint.NET? It far surpasses MS Paint in how professional it is, yet it's free and easy to use.

Thanks. I'm going to add more characters as the story goes on. I might actually scrap the story as it is now in favor of a more detailed description (but not every mission again like on SFS or Bully 2)

Yes possibly. There is still some stuff I have to add and that is one of the things on the list. I'm thinking of re doing the story because i am not feeling the direction it is going really (That's why i haven't updated it in a while) so I don't want to do a gangs section and expand the characters list yet because i may have to re do them if I re do the story. I also want to add some Multiplayer info and an achievements list possibly.

Yeah i really didn't have a sense of direction when i started writing. All i knew is that i wanted to incorporate the economic recession that hit the area and have the protagonist be a veteran of Iraq and served time in prison. But other than that i had no idea where i was going to go so i might scrap the story and re write it.

P.S: I'm excited to see your Las Venturas concept smile.gif
