It does piss me off when I see Tequi-la-la. So much potential yet it just had to be locked up. I doubt that it is due to limitations, and the reasoning behind it appearing poorly textured is because when you glitch into an interior it obviously will not load the way that it is supposed to, this happened a few times in IV.

It angers me that Rockstar refuses to return successful features such as clubbing. Its just ridiculous, there is no reason behind them not returning it.

Could you see gangbanger turned bank robber clubbing in some night club? Could you see a psychopath hillbilly meth drug user in some night club? Could you see Michael, a midlife crisis 80s movie family problem guy in a nightclub? No.. but it still would be nice to have, What is he reasoning for not having them..

Same thing goes for Rockwood Mall. The mall looks so amazing from outside, i honestly thought it would be available to enter after figuring out there were no fast foods, and restaurants. DLC with Rockwood mall, Casinos, night club(s), more interiors with at least 30 other missions sounds appropriate but I'm not expect that. 

The Mall, f*ck, you're right. I made a deathmatch on the roof two days ago and thought "How awesome would it be inside?" NPM in VC? The mall in Saints Row 2.... Nuff said.

Yes. If you lived in LA and had money, you wouldnt stay in playing dominos every night. I'd be hitting the bars hard, looking for talent. And i'm not talking acting, unless it involves a couch....
A midlife crisis 80s movie family problem guy owning a golf course....? Midlife crisis - also Michael isn't a boring old fart - he's mental, perhaps more than Trevor! Well, not quite haha.

Rockstar could make just something like this to Rockford Plaza... or even better.

 

 

Such a shame.

1. A young gangster turned bankrobber enjoying nightlife and picking up college girls. Yes, i could imagine that.
2. A meth crackhead imagining he runs the place from dancefloor/drinking himself in delirium/bitching about music/threatening to kill the DJ/show some REDNECK DISCOFOX CRACK SEIZURE DANCING MADSKILLZ. Yes, i could imagine that.
3. A midlife crisis ex-gangster, waiting for his daughter at the bar/trying to remember the feel of being young/watching young female bodies in motion/drinking/sulking/.
Yes, i could imagine that.

To add to Alvarez -

 

1 - Franklin is made with that potential to go dancing, pick up girls etc. Yes, he's pining for Miss Jackson a lot, and isn't really after anything shallow like Luis was, but with GTA's the trick Rockstar face is making the character have such values, but plausibly justified to go out girl hunting (that sounds wrong :p). Also, Franklin's trying to leave the hood, and he does. But someone his age, with so much money - the only thing missing is a lot of friends - i could see him and his posse rolling up to bahama mamas in a shiny black SUV, stepping out well dressed, walking to the doorman with swagger, slipping him a fifty, then walking in like they owned the place, strutting to the bar and getting sh*t faced. Money and youth = a sense of entitlement (that Franklin surprisingly and thankfully seems to lack) or at least good times!

 

2 - Trevor isn't as unhinged as people imply. Yes, he's hardly a christian philanthropist, but he's shrewd, cunning and merciless in business. He runs meth and guns. Drugs. Drugs + nightclubs - come on, doesn't anyone remember the nineties? Think "51st State" - more specifically, Samual L Jackson's character. Drugs + nightclubs = distribution! Trevor ends up owning a strip club. Is it really that far fetched for him to own a night club, or use one to sell drugs or even get sh*t faced in?

 

3 - Midlife crisis man, trying to reclaim his lost youth by hanging out with a young gangbanger (former) - that sounds... sh*t that is gta V. It's no push that Michael could visit the bars.

But there's also a missed oppurtunity here. To some extent, we saw it with hunting. Trevor could visit the dive bars - the crap, cheap, nasty drug fueled dens. Franklin could cruise the stylish and loud clubs. Michael could visit the classy bars. Or all three could have access to all three. there is the opportunity for some styling here.

And then there's owning businesses - why couldn't these characters own and run the clubs? I could see F doing the doorman thing. I could see M investing in clubs and I could see T taking out the drug competition. It's a missed oppurtinity for Rockstar to have a take on modern day clubs and bars - of which LA has a lot of.

The Rockford Plaza was a complete waste. The could have been a cool two story mall.

It does piss me off when I see Tequi-la-la. So much potential yet it just had to be locked up. I doubt that it is due to limitations, and the reasoning behind it appearing poorly textured is because when you glitch into an interior it obviously will not load the way that it is supposed to, this happened a few times in IV.

I could see Franklin clubbing especially considering the fact that he is a wealthy youngster that lives in a glassy mansion in Vinewood. I could see Michael settling down after the storyline and going clubbing. Trevor- I don't free roam with that dumbass.

But it wouldn't matter anyways, there shouldn't be limitations to potentially successful features just because it would not fit the characters' personalities. That is just rubbish.

Exactly, the R* fanboys can't seem to get that into their thick f*cking heads though. If R* had of added interiors GTA V would've actually been a really good game even though the map design is poor, the story sucks, the side characters are forgettable, the cops and peds are f*cking psychos, the hair cuts suck, the mini games(yoga, tennis, triathlon) are f*cking lame even the racing was half assed, but if they had of added interiors it could have changed the rating from a 5/10 to a 8/10.

 

As for that guy saying Mike, Frank and Trev wouldn't go out clubbing or socializing you're a unimaginatve f*cking idiot, what's funny about that is you're the type of guy to say "I never get bored, I just use my imagination, I pretend I'm a taxi driver that has a dog" L.A.M.E. Your imagination sucks ass, if you're imagination wasn't so full of sh*t you'd be able to come up with a reason or place MF & T would go out to socialize and find big titted pornstar sluts that live in the imaginary San Fernando Valley above Los Santos.

 

Franklin is young rich single black guy he would fit in just fine at any club or bar in the city, especially a club like Bahama Mamas, he could mingle with celeb parodies of Lindsay Lohan, Miley Cyrus and all the other holywood whores then take 'em home and cum in their eyes.

 

Mike is a middle aged rich white guy, it would make sense if he could go to sports bars and fancy strip joints full of skinny coked up blonde whores shoving their sweaty 36dd's all over his face.

 

Trevor is a loveable scumbag piece of trailer trash, he would fit in just fine at a redneck bar out in Paleto Bay full of sexy Jessica Simpson look-alikes dancing on the bar in cowboy boots while he starts a massive bar fight with some bikers or who ever wants it.

 

That is what you call "using your imagination" not "I like to pretend I'm a single guy with a dog that I play fetch with at the park sometimes" or "I like to pretend Michael is a yoga instructor" that's f*cking bullsh*t, go take your f*cking retarded "imagination" and shove it up the f*cking Sims asshole.

Call down man
No need to start slinging insults because you disagree with someone

Role playing is very common in gaming and in gta many of us do. He's simply making the most of the game in his own way if he's doing that. Yes we disagree with him but what are you going to achieve by slinging profanities like this?

It's a wonderful, wonderful waste of space.

I remember seeing the first V trailer and thinking, "wow, they modeled whisky a go go, and there's even a guy getting thrown out like TBOGT nightclubs! Awesome!"

Cut to five years later, I realize that was just the animation from gta4 copied and pasted onto V.

But hey, look on the bright side. Atleast after 5 years of waiting we go to walk into it once for one side mission. Totally worth it.

I never thought I'd see the day where I agree with you, but of course, you're right. The trailer did show a lot that never came to fruition - that scene of the plane smoking the crops workers for example - whatever happened to that?!

 

I too was hyped with things like that - as you said - i thought we could enter and interact. so many bars around LA (&LS) I thought we could enter them at will, drink and what have you. Nope.

I can actually agree with you on that point. Additionally, a lot of the V defenders in this section claim we overhyped ourselves but in actuality, Rockstar did. Here are numerous things they showed that ended up being falsely advertised:
- The safehouse purchasing shown in the gameplay trailer
- The car spawning system that was supposedly influenced from real life Los Angeles demographics
- The heists themselves. I thought we were supposed to do it all for money but instead we were just the government's bitch
- Tequi-la-la

There is so much disappointment in this thread I don't know where to start/agree. So much wasted space just underlines R*'s half-ass attempt...which would be okay if the storyline was magnificent and they spent most of their time making that the absolute best (which they didn't, but that's for another topic).

Not all the heists were for the FIB and the safehouse thing was the online trailer :) but i agree that R* over hyped the game.

Bullsh*t, the safehouse scene was in the FIRST gameplay trailer. That trailer was dedicated to the single player aspect of the game until the last scene. So the safehouse scene was dedicated to single player but they never delivered it in the final product, knowing people wanted it. Why? I don't know. So misleading and such a missed opportunity

You're right - at the end, right before the gameplay snippett, it says "real estate" with a pic of a house or apartment block. The heists they just implied more than they gave. They were very careful with their wording i think.

So, recently i glitched inside the Tequila-la building using the experience of GTAForums member...the name i unfortunately forgot.

 

Apart from the pictures i took inside after completing the mission...

Spoiler

when i switched back and forth between Franklin and Trevor while Trevor being inside, it was interesting to see that the game unloads the objects inside the interior, but leaves the interior inside the building.

Spoiler

 

Was it different in GTA4 back then, dear modders?

It's really a shame this couldn't just be open even after buying the place. But I guess if it was, people would complain about the lack of things to do inside of it anyway, since it's not like you can play pool or QUB3D.

Or also Dart, that was hanging on one wall.

 

Every time you need to play Dart, you have to travel to Blaine County.

Seriously, this place is so detailed, this is a shame it can't be entered. But then, hanging around would be impossible, as the paranoid AI would call cops, if you watched him for longer than a second.

I'm still hoping for a quick menu to be patched into SP, sure it's in Online can't be that hard. I have to agree though, Rockford Plaza and Tequila-la would have been absolutely amazing locations both for unwinding in SP, and for causing mayhem in Online. I can totally imagine going in to party with some friends and then shooting up the place. I bet it's going to be part of some future DLC. Also the casino and horse-racing track are missed opportunities. I can totally imagine a heist where we have to sneak into the casino and break out the bank.

Defendthehouse on youtube made a video about that and they somehow managed to get it working.
 I'll try to find it.
