Sorry that I'm late to board the boat as I just read this for the first time, but great job man
Thanks a bunch! It's never late, though an update is really overdue.
I'm ok with it as long as Vice City is partitioned away from the rest of the land, and isnt extended. Also make sure there are plenty of bikes in the wet lands etc because in San Andreas it was a bitch losing your vehicle in the country.
Not sure what you mean, extended how? And how do you see it being partitioned off?
Shouldn't this be moved to Concepts? Anyway, looks interesting
Isn't that where it is? Thanks regardless.
I like this topic, first of all it looks visually appeasing I especially like the way you have made the gang section look like a factfile. I also like the format of your missions and your dialogue seems to really fit the tone. I get kind of a neo-noir vibe from it when I read the missions. I like Frankie too.. she seems to have a good balance in her character like she's not too girly but isn't overly tough either. She kind of reminds me of the character Tes played by Malin Akerman in the film Catch .44 for some reason thats how I picture her. If you're not farmiliar with the movie here's a picture of the character who also coincidentally works in a strip club.
Thanks man. The factfile format is inspired by the website for original (and real) Vice City. Even though a modern day VCPD probably wouldn't be using paper files, I like the aesthetic. I don't know if I'd call it neo-noir, I'm not as such aiming for that anyway, if anything I might call it neon-noir, a mix of glitz and grit, which will probably show more if I ever get around to writing down.
I'm glad you like Frankie, I have a hard time figuring out whether she is to 'male' - or if that is even a thing - but I generally like what she's like now. I've been piecing this together over several years and Frankie was actually male for a long time and her story outline as such isn't dominated by her gender, which probably helps make her seem less girly. I haven't seen that movie, but I might have to check it out.
I have a hard time picturing her and I generally try to avoid thinking too much about it, but you're not a million miles off. I looked at some other pics from the movie and this comes close. Somewhere between that, Katee Sackhoff, Gillian Jacobs and Linda Hamilton (ca. 1991), except a little less pretty and more 'beat up' - Frankie's not treating herself well.
Anyway, thanks all, for the comments - it's nice to know people like it.
