Play the missions and don't forget to give me feedback about them. biggrin.gif


Hello, guys. After I've finished the Swiping Kings trilogy (for now), I've decided I should move on to something new. I can personally say that this mission pack is the most complex mission pack I've ever started and came up with in terms of the plot. It is, by far, a mission pack which has the most plot twists and cliffhangers I've ever done in any of my mission packs. It's finished and it consists of 20 missions. All my missions are connected to each other, so I suggest you play them in order which you are able to follow in this topic.

Theme song:

Summary:

Six highly specialized criminals who are strangers to one another are brought together by two wealthy brokers, Jack Bartier and Ethan Corby, to form an elite heist team which will steal and bring them the mysterious briefcase held inside a casino safe in Las Venturas in exchange for a very highly-payed fee. However, not everything is as it seems. You play as Brock Zane, one of the six criminals who finds himself wrapped in a net where everybody tricks everybody and where the only person you can actually trust is yourself.

Characters:

Didn't know you were planning another MP so fast. As always, i'll keep up with this. smile.gif

So, the intro wasn't much interesting to be honest. It's a good way to introduce us to the characters but it didn't feel "complex" or something like that. But i understand that it's the start so i'll expect more of it, afterall it's the MP that has most twists and cliffhangers.

Rating: 7.5/10

Just out of curiosity, is the plot inspired by a movie?

@Andrej - Thanks a lot, man smile.gif Looking forward to your feedbacks smile.gif And yeah, of course, Rock N Roll forever icon14.gif

@Platinum Card - Thank you, man. It's good to see you around here too smile.gif

@Zizo - Wow, thanks for the quick feedback and a very high rating to start things off smile.gif Yeah, I made the intro short and simple just to introduce the characters. I think this is the shortest intro I've done for any of my mission packs, but that was the point. I didn't want to rush into the thing, I just wanted to set up the plot first so you know what it's about cause, as I said, it gets complex smile.gif And actually no. It is somewhat inspired by a mission pack I did with a lot of designers a while back. ''The Tale of Jack Frazer''. We came up with a similar story back then, but this is fairly different after all. I wanted to do something like this for a long time though. I like when a mission pack has a lot of twists and cliffhangers, so.. smile.gif

Just a heads up. The plot isn't finished yet. I'm still in the process of ''tidying it up'', so I can't promise you how fast I'll be able to make the missions, but I'll try not to have too big spans from one mission release to another. smile.gif

Jimmy Leppard is back cool.gif
I played the intro and judging from it, itís an high class heist mission ph34r.gif
It was cutscene only so I wonít be able to rate it but all I can say is that it was a well balance and written cutscene monocle.gif
I bid you all the best for your mission pack icon14.gif

Yes, I'm back again smile.gif

Yes, you're right. It's a high class heist, but just for the info, the heist itself isn't really what you should be focusing on. I won't say anything else, but just for the record, heist isn't something that triggers upcoming events. It's something else wink.gif

And no problem, man. Looking forward to your ratings and feedbacks in the upcoming missions smile.gif Thanks for the support smile.gif

Okay, so the story is a lot better now, as expected. I liked that sudden twist in the end, at first i thought that they just won't find it, i like how you made it unpredictable. smile.gif Though i found it surprising how they already did it from the start, i think it could've been better if it was executed in the middle of the chapter, that would've been interesting. icon14.gif
Anyway, sadly the gameplay wasn't good, as usual, i mean there could've been a lot more to the gunfight, i actually was able to just avoid them and run to the exit, and repetetive actors. confused.gif

Rating: 7.5/10

I tried to be as detailed as i could this time. Honestly, i feel like there isn't much effort put on the gameplay side. If there was a balance between that and the story i'd propably give this a near-perfect score.

As I said, there will be twists everywhere possible, that's what this is about smile.gif

And I already said that the heist will be the beginning of everything and it isn't really important. The team were told there is an easy way in (we don't know which), but that the way out should be tricky, which it was. I didn't want to put different actors since it's only security which also isn't so important and I'm plainning on having a lot of main characters, so I didn't want to waste skins on guards etc.

Anyway, thanks for another high rating, I appreciate the constructive criticism. There may have been something else to the gunfight, but you know, it's an ordinary casino, ordinary not so trained guards and 6 highly specialized dudes who know why they're there and what they want, so.. I wanted to really make it like Professionals (team) > amateurs (guards/security) and make it for everyone to see the difference.

However, thanks on the fast feedbacks from you, man smile.gif

More missions on the way.

The third mission is the best so far. The story is very good and i like the way it's going. And since there's no gameplay this time, there's really nothing bad about the mission.

Jimmy I really enjoy the writing effort that you put into your missions. Everything flows really well in connection with the plot. it's something I often look for when playing missions. I've enjoyed the first three missions as I'm very into cutscenes/story part of mission packs. I can't wait till the action picks up.

Oh, thanks a lot for the quick feedback, man smile.gif i really appreciate that and I'm glad that I finally got to you completely with this smile.gif

That's correct, the 8th mission will be the last mission of chapter 1. You can expect a cliffhanger at the end of chapter 1 which is actually gonna be like an intro or a pointer to chapter 2, story-wise of course smile.gif

Stay tuned for more missions, guys smile.gif

That chapter ending was the best! The gameplay finally got worked up, it's very good this time, i liked how it was in-game when they were talking and the cops came. But the story really got me thinking this time, it was a nice way to end it. I think this could be your best project so far. icon14.gif

I hope the next chapter comes quick! biggrin.gif
