Was thinking this morning while waiting out a bounty on top of the Maze Bank building at night in-game that it would be cool if you could knock out the power to a portion of the city. Maybe you could hit a transformer and then the power to a portion of the city goes out for a period of time. Or there could be other methods to take the power out (maybe be able to buy an EMP drop from Merryweather?)

 

No traffic lights (NPC cars that no longer have traffic signals turn streets into a parking lot or crash), no lights (easier to hide) and no cell service (no power to the cell towers.)

 

The finer details of it would have to be worked out, but effectively could be used as a tactical weapon and turn that portion of the city, briefly, into weapons only (no calling Pegasus for a tank or to put a bounty - couldn't even call Mechanic - if you were in that portion of the city.)

 

During the day, the stealth aspect of all lights off wouldn't be there, but still you could turn the traffic lights off and take cell service out for a portion of the city.

Would be pretty cool seeing the power being knocked off in some areas of LS, I'm not sure how many people would agree though..

 

If we have that option during heists for example shooting a splitter and tripping the electric that would most certainly be fine with me!

Yeah, I did think it was "Watch Dog"-y (and I wish that had come out this year), but would make for an interesting twist. Maybe an EMP drop would be an expensive Merryweather option.

This could be fun, yet get really annoying, really quickly.

I never really liked the Doge meme, but god damn...that's pretty funny.

Yes, maybe we can cut power in apartments too. That way those people that watch TV can't.

You've obviously never lived in the US.
Blackouts happen there, quite frequently in some cities.

Rockstar can't make a world complete enough for blackouts to be meaningful.

Maybe a solar flare special event that shuts down the electric for a day or two.

It's actually not a bad idea. It'd be sweet if you could blow up a power station and take out the power in that area for a limited period of time.
Of course, you'd have snipers complaining more than on snow day.

It would only work if it was server side created special event. Would be funny if they kept it up for a couple of days and glitchers where stuck inside the elevators in their apts till they ran out of air.
