OK well after the lowrider DLC it seems apartment customization is the only major thing left to add besides the Casino.  As of now everyone's high end apartment has the same exact look on the inside.  Allowing us to customize them would give us the opportunity to make them our own.  Here are some pictures I fixed up showing ideas I think would be cool to have.  If you have suggestions please post them and I'll add them to this post.  OK 1st thing on my list is a pool table.


1tablegames1_zpslsij0ghu.gif

 

As you can see besides a pool table other games can be put in this slot.  We should be able to go to an online store and place an order just like we do cars.  Next on the list is the bong table.  i think this can be turned into a game table with a few changes.

 

2tablegames2_zpsdliayk4x.gif

 

As shown in the gif above.  We can have up to 4 ppl envolved with some of the games. We could even be allowed to bet money.  These games are just the 1st to come to mind.  Please suggest other games that could be included here.

This suggestion is of course to make room for the above games.  The table by the TV is also just a more suitable place for the bong imo considering the table isnt used for anything and you get to watch TV while smoking.  Ok next is the furniture.

In the pic above I only altered the color but  R* could also allow the option to change the pattern of the designs and even the texture.  Basically just like the interior of the lowriders.

Who didnt like this arcade game?  lol  I think this is the best spot for it to but it can also be place on the opposite wall.

Why not?  lol  I also think the fridge should be used too.  Maybe when at a store,  after we fill the snack section in our interactive menu we could buy more snacks that are then sent to your apartment fride.  When at home we can go to the fridge and fill up.

I really like this possibility.  Here is only one wall of paintings but we should be able to change all the paintings in the house like this.  R* could add an online site we can go to and buy the paintings from like we do cars.

 

8fishtank_zpshx0idgkj.png

 

This one hasnt been mentioned much but I think its a cool addition.  If anything its something else to spend money on.  Could be bigger more expensive tanks to buy and even other animals like snakes,  lizards,  spiders,  etc.  I think the animals should be alive and moving around too.  This is just one place thats god for this but there were a few other spots I saw that were fitting for a fishtank.

 

 

 

Other things that arent customization but should be available in our apartment to add more interaction are...

 

* Ability to walk around and drink - Instead of only being able to take the shot of alcohol from the designated spots,  we should be also be able to fill a glass with drink then walk around with the glass and take more than one drink from it.

 

* Changes to the stripper aspect - This aspect needs a makeover imo to help make it better.  Here are my suggestions.

 

1) Allow more than one stripper in the apartment.  Either let us call more than one over or allow friends in the apartment to also call a stripper over.

 

2) Make them actually strip.  Theyre called strippers but dont strip.  lol  More like dancers right now.  They could make it so when the strippers come over they would be wearing a coat like they do in single player or maybe even some clothes.  Then when they perform they will actually take something off.    Maybe even allow us to buy a pole to put where the pool table is suggested to go so they can go there and strip and ppl can throw money.  ;)  As of now theyarent strippers.

 

3) Make the strippers move around.  Right now they stay in that one spot by the chair and dance to themselves waiting to give someone a lap dance.  They should walk around like they do in the club offering dances.  If someone wants a lap dance then they would go to the nearest available seating spot.

 

 

 

Those are just some ideas that came across my mind that could make the apartments more live.  Right now its pretty boring so nobody really wants to visit them after the 1st time.  Anyone else want to add anything?  thoughts?

I didn't know we could call strippers to our apartment. I haven't gone into a strip club online yet. Defo agree with card games, Poker would be excellent and Pool and Air Hockey would be great. 

 

I like the walking around with the glass idea, nice role play of watching carnage through your huge window, sipping whiskey with a suit on listening to classical music on your radio :)

DLC


Definitely. Pool was there in IV so why not.

I expect the DLCs to bring overpriced in-game material..

I agree. What I think would be some cool ideas:

 

-Add poker table, pool table, fish/shark tank, lighting(disco ball? color changing) darts etc

-color change of garage floor

-AT LEAST color changing of funiture, walls, kitchen appliances

-mini bar

-stereo system instead of that 1990's CD player lol

-Changing wall pictures to pictures you've personally have taken

-statues

 

Kind of sounds like The Sims but lack of personality in these apartments is terrible

I want a pool table, a stripper pole, an indoor pool, a gym, a bar, and a fish tank.

There is plenty of room.

I don't know why the hoof they would add food on a plate that you can't eat or some weird ass juice that doesn't even heal you, let alone do anything for that matter.

That'd be too nice of rockstar and would probably cause a bunch of more progress loss issues and deleted characters...hope they will do what you say it'd be sweet and add longevity to the game

I am all for customization whether by specific things you can add like say just adding a pool table or by  more wholesale changes to the entire style like Saints Row 2 had.

 

Hopefully they add this since it does improve the longevity and gameplay.

Customising your appartment like you could in Playstation Home would be great

I agree.  It could easily be an option when you go to the door to leave like they have the garage.

Rockstar will absolutely deliver that content in a dlc coming soon - very soon ... And you will be able to purchase these items for no more than what corresponds to 453 online hours of grinding missions or one of these fine cash cards *big smile* .... Soon that is - very soon ...

I'd rather a more diverse range of safehouses before going into that much detail, say for example, uh, HOUSES.

 

At the moment there are just what I like to call 'safeapartments', and they are all incredibly low tiered. There are 3 interior builds, this is so lazy, they could of easily faked it and moved some furniture around or changes some art/colours in the different priced properties to make them a bit different, I don't think a different view justifies a 150k difference personally.

 

Although I've noticed that other real estate websites are 'currently down for maintenance' just like dynasty 8 was. This is promising because those websites have houses listed according to radio ads, awesome houses, not just samey apartments. I hope we see more than just apartments. Maybe then we can start thinking about customisation.

Wont happen bcuz they wont be able to instance them like they can the apartments.  If more than one person in the session owns said house there will conflict.  With apartment buildings you can mask this but with houses it will look silly if multiple owners are running in and out of the same house.

My 400k apartment looks the same as this 200k. This is weak.

I would rather take silly over dull and boring looking apartments.

Yes, would love to see a Furniture Store in a future update!

 

Where you could purchase different furniture, wallpapers etc for your apartment!

 

Making each apartment (although similar frame and foundation) unique and look very different! :)

Give me something to remove bruises from my character.  That's all I want.

 

Shouldn't have to leave the game and rejoin.

Guys, I love threads like these. They are the best part of the forums. However, its VERY important to not only discuss your ideas here, but also email rockstar about these ideas. 

 

If 300 people email rockstar about apartment customization they will be more inclined to consider the idea. Especially if you link to, or better yet, cope the contents of extensive posts like these.

 

Look at the "Love of Money" topic. It got alot of attention, and I can tell you for a fact that rockstar used some of those ideas.

Showering and then Sleeping on the Bed should remove bruises no? :)

I'd so love it, and then maybe the Giantsgiants of the apartment world will be able to show the community their interior designs
