Should there be more call abilities? You know, like the one when calling Lester to remove Wanted level? Share your ideas with the world.

 

Lester:

  • No Police: $1000 - Can't get Wanted level for 1 minute. Makes it easier to rob stores or to get the Fighter Jet.
  • Locate Submarine - $200 - Locates a Submersible nearby.
  • Police Report - $2000-$6000 - Issues a Wanted level to a person. $2000 for 1 Star and $6000 for 3 Stars. 4+ Stars would be too overpowered in my opinion.
  • Bounty Removal - $(amount of Bounty) - Removes the Bounty from a person. Only usable for NPC Bounties.
  • Remove Cooldown - $500 - Removes all cooldowns from all call abilities. Meaning you could call e.g. the Mechanic before the 3-5 min cooldown has ended after calling to Lester to remove cooldown. The cooldown to remove cooldown could not be cancelled, though.

Merryweather:

  • Mine Trap - $3000 - Gives you 5 Mines which you can plant. The Mines would never be deleted unless they got exploded. Best used against Tanks in a place without NPC cars, as the mines could explode them too.
  • Merryweather Bodyguards - $5000 - An elite task force similar to Mercenaries that will shoot at every hostile player on sight. They will try to shoot down anyone who killed you, and then return to you after respawning.
  • Backup Fighter Jet - $7500 - Deploy a friendly Fighter Jet to rain down fire upon nearby players. Will protect you as long as the Backup Helicopter.
  • Riot Truck - $5000 - A truck that has bullet-resistant windows and bulletproof tires. Windows will break after a set amount of shots.
  • Fighter Jet Pickup - $2000 - Requires an airfield. A Fighter Jet will take you and get you to a location. After reaching the Waypoint it will circle that area.
  • Buzzard Missile Attack - $3000 - Co-Pilot shot Missiles from a Buzzard to a specified target. Would be pretty useful against Tanks... just saying.
  • Rhino Pickup - $1000 - Can not be stolen & does not shoot. It will function as a safe method of delivering you to a location, running over vehicles. If it hits a Personal Vehicle, will not give you Bad Sport.

Lamar:

  • Gang Attack - $3000 - The hood will go after a specified person. They will have weaker weaponry than Mercenaries.

Martin:

  • Assign Tailgater - $1000 - Assign a tailgater to tail a person. He will be shown as a blinking dot on the map for the assigner, Off the Radar will not work (it will work to other players, but not the one who assigned the tailgater) and he can not enter Apartments in the sight of the tailgater. It will show the message that "You are being tailgated! Kill the tailgater before you can enter the Apartment." if one attempts to get there. Passive Mode will work normally though.

Mechanic:

  • Deliver car to Garage: - Free - Delivers car to your Garage.
  • Deliver car to Los Santos Customs - Free - If you have an iFruit-app in your Android or iPhone, you'll be able to customize your current Personal Vehicle without the worry of it getting destroyed by a madman in a tank.

Enough from me. Your ideas?

you can already call the police from your phone, 911, not as sophisticated as your suggestion, but it's there.

I like bounty removal, it's realistic, "hey? some guy wants me dead? I'll pay you double"

I endorse gang attack as well

I like the mechanic "deliver car to garage" bit.   To keep up with the mechanic's antics, it would often take your car to the wrong garage, or drive it into the ocean.


The rest of the stuff, however, I think is just bloat.  Neat little call of duty killstreak style things which would fill up space in the call lists and suck up a lot of development resources (which they clearly do not have enough of already)

Could do with snazzier names for some things. "No Police" becomes "Diplomatic Immunity" you get what I mean.

 

I think it would be better to leave off Find Submersible and instead make the sub available from Pegasus. You don't need Subs to complete missions so you don't need everyone to have access to them and they make sense as an extravagance purchase.

 

Instead of police report I kinda preferred my idea of Terror Watchlist. It doesn't give them wanted level, but any time they earn wanted level it immediately gets bumped up to 4 stars. So they have the option of keeping their noses clean or facing off with the FIB at every turn. I think that's a little more interesting and a little more nuanced than "Okay, you have cops on you now". Also I kinda like the idea that you can't set cops on someone directly... but you can make the cops hit with a wildly disproportionate response. If we do go with your idea than IMO the costs should be halved. 1-3 star wanted level isn't really dangerous in this game, it's just tedious if you're trying to do something else.

 

IMO Bounty Removal should apply to both NPC bounties and player bounties (I'm not sure the game tracks the difference between them if you hop sessions) and should cost more than the bounty. Double seems like a good amount. (Breaks even for the lowest bounty amount with the $1000 bounty surcharge)

 

No Cooldown seems like it could get kinda overpowered depending on how it's implemented and I think it's hard to balance. Spamming "Off the Radar" 5 times in a row would be pretty disgusting. I think they could play around with the cooldowns but I direct No Cooldown ability gets a no from me.

 

The merryweather suggestions are pointless bloat IMO and the tailgater idea doesn't seem very good either. Exception might be the bodyguards idea because that sounds fun, but I'm not sure how well it would work in practice.

 

Gang Hit (I think it needs to differentiate from the Gang Attack activity) could be okay. It covers the same-ground as merryweather mercs, but as long as it has a different 'flavor' to it it might not feel redundant.

 

Sending cars to garage would be a nice addition, but as we all know the current mechanic isn't particularly reliable.

IMO sending a car to LSC is bit too much of a niche idea for it to be that useful.

I would like an assassin that kills bitches who hide in their apartment with a bounty. They could just keep the bounty money.

Lester always has a sub for me, you just have to be in the vicinity where the spawn points are located. They should add Drones, or a Spooky.

Lester:

  • No Police: $1000 - Can't get Wanted level for 1 minute. Makes it easier to rob stores or to get the Fighter Jet. (Should be a lobby/server not a phone feature)
  • Locate Submarine - $200 - Locates a Submersible nearby. (no reason to be in the water, especially if "bounty removal is implemented")
  • Police Report - $2000-$6000 - Issues a Wanted level to a person. $2000 for 1 Star and $6000 for 3 Stars. 4+ Stars would be too overpowered in my opinion. (NO, there's enough police interference already)
  • Bounty Removal - $(amount of Bounty) - Removes the Bounty from a person. Only usable for NPC Bounties.
  • Remove Cooldown - $500 - Removes all cooldowns from all call abilities. Meaning you could call e.g. the Mechanic before the 3-5 min cooldown has ended after calling to Lester to remove cooldown. The cooldown to remove cooldown could not be cancelled, though.

Merryweather:

  • Mine Trap - $3000 - Gives you 5 Mines which you can plant. The Mines would never be deleted unless they got exploded. Best used against Tanks in a place without NPC cars, as the mines could explode them too.(If you have time to plant mines, the tank driver is doing something wrong. Already have sticky bombs)
  • Merryweather Bodyguards - $5000 - An elite task force similar to Mercenaries that will shoot at every hostile player on sight. They will try to shoot down anyone who killed you, and then return to you after respawning. (join a crew,it's pretty much the same thing, or play in passive mode)
  • Backup Fighter Jet - $7500 - Deploy a friendly Fighter Jet to rain down fire upon nearby players. Will protect you as long as the Backup Helicopter.(wouldn't really be efficient since the jet would have to circle, whereas the helicopter can hover and prove consistent backup)
  • Riot Truck - $5000 - A truck that has bullet-resistant windows and bulletproof tires. Windows will break after a set amount of shots. (already in game)
  • Fighter Jet Pickup - $2000 - Requires an airfield. A Fighter Jet will take you and get you to a location. After reaching the Waypoint it will circle that area.(Helicopter pickup already in game)
  • Buzzard Missile Attack - $3000 - Co-Pilot shot Missiles from a Buzzard to a specified target. Would be pretty useful against Tanks... just saying.(already implemented, you just need to find a buzzard and if you're talking long range missiles, No, long distance missiles wouldn't be used just on tanks. It'd also be used for every small thing ie bounties or revenge kills)
  • Rhino Pickup - $1000 - Can not be stolen & does not shoot. It will function as a safe method of delivering you to a location, running over vehicles. If it hits a Personal Vehicle, will not give you Bad Sport. (Passive Mode and drive fast or call in merryweather helicopter)

Lamar:

  • Gang Attack - $3000 - The hood will go after a specified person. They will have weaker weaponry than Mercenaries. (Only if the "hood" stays in the "hood." For instance, the "hood" shouldn't travel to Paleto Bay or to the forest to attack a person)

Martin:

  • Assign Tailgater - $1000 - Assign a tailgater to tail a person. He will be shown as a blinking dot on the map for the assigner, Off the Radar will not work (it will work to other players, but not the one who assigned the tailgater) and he can not enter Apartments in the sight of the tailgater. It will show the message that "You are being tailgated! Kill the tailgater before you can enter the Apartment." if one attempts to get there. Passive Mode will work normally though. (pointless, just set a bounty and if they enter their apt...move on. maybe a phone call that lets you know..."the target is on the move")

Mechanic:

  • Deliver car to Garage: - Free - Delivers car to your Garage.(sure, why not)
  • Deliver car to Los Santos Customs - Free - If you have an iFruit-app in your Android or iPhone, you'll be able to customize your current Personal Vehicle without the worry of it getting destroyed by a madman in a tank.(can't you already do that?)

Enough from me. Your ideas?

Not trying to seem like a douche, but....

 

 I think the call features are fine as is. If, there's anything that could be added is your mechanic being able to get(pay) your car out of the impound lot.
