| I will sit down tonight and give it a thorough read. Last night I was pretty tired when I skimmed it, but I am very excited to see sheriff cars and the mention of park rangers. If there is indeed a national/state park with rangers maybe they will pursue you for illegally hunting animals. You will need to modify some silent weapons to successfully poach. Well that's getting a little off topic, but park rangers open up so many new possibilities it's exciting.|
I also hope as much detail and diversity goes into other government vehicles like fire trucks and ambulances. That one picture showed Trevor on a coast guard jet ski. I've actually see fire department jet skis and I thought those were the coolest things ever. Would love to be able to ride one of those in game.
You bring up a great side point for sure! Park Rangers and their duties. They can pursue the people in real life, but as you get down from the federal level, state level, down to a county or city level, their duties go down too. It is doubtful a state level ranger will chase you down a dirt road along a cliff trying to ram you off like other GTA style law does. So what would GTA do about them? Will they just be for show and have vehicles patrolling randomly down park service roads? Will they be parked at ranger stations, but not actually try to stop you? Maybe their interactions will be simple such as saying "you can't do this hear" but then if the player whips out a gun, they will step back and maybe not do much, call for outside help? We really don't know.
Different levels of park and forestry service law enforcement.
FEDERAL (At national parks and national forests)U.S. National Parks Park RangerU.S. Forest Service
STATE (varies. At State parks. Game rangers make sure hunters or others don't kill the wrong animals and protect waterways and the environment.)State Park RangerState Fish / Wildlife and Game
COUNTY (varies. Some counties have their own park service for county parks. Most maintain, but some actually have armed officers who are rangers.)County Park Ranger
MUNICIPAL (varies, some can arrest, some pick up trash, some have guns.)Municipal Park Ranger
I highly doubt a ranger will shoot you if you shoot a deer in the park, or an endangered spieces. They would try to detain you, and in real life, honestly, your're not going to be shooting at law enforcers like some do in GTA games. So I think it will be really interesting to explore what rangers will add to the game.
Coast Guard in San Andreas didn't do much, it was mainly for show. They never actually patrolled around or chased you, but police boats did chase you. But I think in GTA V, Rangers will at least patrol around, but maybe not chase you in high speed chases through state or federal parks. It just doesn't make sense if they did.
I also appreciate the fact you will sit down and read the updates, thank you.
