First off: I'm currently at work, and have yet to download the latest update and play V (which I'll be doing when I get home), but for the guys who've played post 1.06 update; can anyone confirm if lightning bolts has returned?
Secondly: If lightning bolts haven't been included in the latest patch, do you think they will ever make a return?
Ever since we saw the first screens of the stormy weather including bolts of lightning introduced for the first time in a GTA, I thought it looked absolutely beautiful, but decided to wait until I played the game first hand before giving my opinion on it - and was not disappointed.
The huge epic lightning bolts made the whole storm experience feel much more fearsome and immersive, especially at night when it beautifully lit up the clouds. I would just park a car in the middle of the countryside, switch off the radio, and admire it's beauty.
I was pretty gutted to find out this small but effective feature had been removed after the first patch, which I guess was down to technical reasons or what have you.
Thoughts on a possible return?
