So not sure if this is a question or a general statement, but, I wish the apartments came with a helipad. Im not even sure how to get a purchased heli...

 

Not just the helipads, but, what are some other things you wish the apartments came with?

 

If this has already been started then do me/the community a favor and delete the thread.

Some customization options.

Doesn't need to be too intricate - not like Sims or something - but give me selection, let me make it look SOMEWHAT different. As it stands, ALL $200-400k apartments are identical inside and it's kinda lame.

Mail Rockstar with Suggestions :)

Wouldn't mind seeing Villas / Mansions / Penthouses with Helipads added later on (Very expensive though) :)

some high ends have heli pads. you cant save any helis and you cant enter you house from there. but there should be a way up their from you apt and they should put it a pool table/other min games. also stripper pole in hiest room with strobe lights

Right, Im not talking revamp the entire system, just give us a few things as add ons to the apartment...

 

  • Helipad
  • pool table
  • etc...

Just make the apartments, vilias, penthouses, mansions a little more pricey...

Also would love to see Furniture Shops added.

 

Where you could purchase different Furniture / Wallpaper to customize and upgrade your apartments :)

 

But yes, a Penthouse with access to a Helipad would be nice :)

Test Drive Unlimited had some good apartment modding options, hopefully R* can follow suit.   It is corny for everyone to have the same apartment look.  Helicopter access would definitely be great and should be easy for R* to implement

So, I just sent a email to R* as suggested by PINNKIEPIE, here is what it reads:

 

Hello, first let me start off by thanking you for taking the time to read this email. As I am sure you all are very busy with all the request for bug fixes, and people who have gliched need to be dealt with, so again, I appreciate your time.
 
This request is not of the utmost importance, just a suggestion that might make the game, more enjoyable to the players/your customers.
 
I recently started a thread on a community forum that I visit quit frequently, and recieved some possitive feedback. In that thread, I posted the simple question of; Should the apartments have helipads?
 
I think alot if not all the players would appreciate the oppurtnity to have access to a personal helipad, I know I would. 
 
Another thing that was suggested in the thread, were some other customization concepts; pool tables, stripper poles, mini-games, and the like. Again, I know you get the emails alot, and like I stated above, not of the upmost importance, just something to think about. 
 
The game is a great piece of work, a little bumpy start, but no masterpiece was created in one day!
 
Thanks again for your time and thanks for reading.
 
Have a wonderful day!
 
 
 
If and when I here anything from R* I will make sure to update the thread, letting you see what they reply.

I have been checking on it periodically through out the night and nothing as of yet. But, like I said in the email, with all the people asking about glitching and cheating it probably will take them awhile to get to it, if they do...

I personally believe all the apartments from $200K and above should have one. Just allow the $200K to hold one (1) heli, the $300K to hold two (2) and the $400K to hold all available... Just my opinion, more cost should equal greater benefits...

I also wish we could purchase a large hanger at the airport. Just have it closed like our car garage and when you get into your helicopter, plane, tank or whatever it just spawns outside and you can go. Come back, pull into the large glowing circle and it gets placed back into the hanger. I'm just surprised they gave us this in SP but not in MP. All they needed to do was close off the hangers and make them separate instances instead of being open like they are in SP.

 

But yea I agree that it would be nice if the apts allowed helipad access. The door to the apt could just have the added option to go to the helipad just like it does with the garage. Simple.

It would definitely be a nice thing - although I can only imagine the carnage as 10 guys all try to land their Buzzards at the same time - and where would the choppers actually go?

 

Our garages are instanced, and they're behind a door, so two players can hit the entry zone at the same time and it doesn't matter as they transition to their instanced garage.

 

A heli just sits out on the pad, out in the open world - no instancing, so only one (completely exposed and vulnerable) chopper per pad at a time (that time being until the next guy wants to land and wastes your chopper).

 

Hangars are doable a they're just garages for planes - put a door on them and we're sorted. Helipads, tho - that would take some doing. 

 

The current method, you call up your chopper and go collect it, is about the only way this can be done and maintain any sense of realism. Plus choppers spawn in several places - one is only ever a few minutes away anyway.

 

EDIT - after giving it 10 seconds of actual thought, it could run like the entry zones for garages - as soon as you touch down in the zone, you transition into your hangar. For taking it out, go into hangar, climb aboard, transition to helipad. Still risks clashing issues (you're coming in to land and a Cargobob zones in beneath you) - two pads, an 'inbound' and an 'outbound', could help with that. Hmmm, yeah, like I said, helipads would take some doing.

i think it would be better is if the mechanic can bring you your helis.. like how merryweather comes in with the heli.. except after that the mechanic would get out instead of having to shoot him to steal it. also it should be free.... not cost 1k (cus then whats the point if i can just call merryweather and have a heli for 1k without buying one)

Rockstar said they would add come level of customization to them. I think helipads might come one day, but not for a while.

The 400k Apartment should have a 360 view of the city through windows, a balcony with a pool on it, a jacuzzi, a helipad, a dart board. I bought it thinking I was going to be able to see everything, but my friend who paid less than I did on the same building has a better view... Kinda silly if you ask me...

Small point, but we should be able to call Lester and ask him to locate an armoured truck once every 24-48hours. They are ridiculously rare on mine and would add to Lesters functionality.

 

But totally agree that we need more houses, mansions and pricey stuff as alot of people are already maxing out!

How about Security guards that attack people who trespass? A long garage tunnel so that you can drive out without being shot at? A fence?
