Here I am again. Another project, another story, another couple of months working on, making, perfecting, for two reasons:

For you people to experience, and

For my own creative release.

This Mission pack was conceived as my final DYOM project. I've been around a while, and most likely will be a while more after this is finished, but I doubt I will ever make a mission pack of this scale. Like every time before this one will be my favorite theme: good ole' GTA style. I myself was never fan of making a story using already established characters. For this one I made an exception. I dared to touch into the sacred GTA lore and combine all our favorite 3D era titles into an fan made continuation.

 

I've pulled the protagonists from:

GTA3 - Claude

Vice City - Tommy Vercetti

San Andreas - Carl Johnson

Liberty City Stories - Toni Cipriani

Vice City Stories - Vic Vance

 

Here I present you project I call: End of an era

This is a mission pack that follows life of all 3D era protagonists after their respective games. Therefore story starts after the events of the GTA3, around 2002. Under a simple idea I've put all the protagonists in one town, Las Venturas. They are pitted against each other in a bloody war for the control.

I've tried staying true to the characters as much as possible. Its not like all of them wanna piece of cake and enter a war. They all have their reasons. They are neither good or bad. Honestly depends on a viewpoint of the player.

I've considered making one of the protagonists also mine protagonist, but that left with a problem of favorism. Then I had an idea to make each chapter played from a viewpoint of another protagonist eg. one chapter with Claude, one with Tommy, and story would progress as the chapters go. My problem with this version was finishing the storyline. I do not wanna make any of them win easily (Like gameplay makes us do most of the time)

I decided to make a new protagonist. Closely tied to a major characther. I've worked on developing a personality for him. I believe I've made a complicated character that most people would love, and or associate with. Now its your job to decide is he good or bad. Are his actions just or not.

The old protagonists might have a bit of personality change. Sadly its unavoidable sometimes, but I've had to make some small changes here and there. But I always say they aged. Things changed, and they changed.

 

You will see a number of characters that survived their respective games like: Mickey Hamfists, 8ball, Woozie etc.

And you will see some new characthers I've made for the purpose of enriching the story (hopefully) like John,Jules,Randy.

 

Like always, I want you to have fun, let yourself get immersed and enjoy.

2002. Las Venturas, city of gambling and quick weddings.

Las Venturas prospered in last few years. Mafia involvement in the casinos was never smaller. Woozie still runs the 4 dragons, foreign investors and all kind of businessmen and celebrities are walking down the streets. Casino game is bigger then ever. Everyone that is anyone wants a slice of the cake.

 

After the death of Salvatore Leone, Leone gang was in decline. Joey Leone didn't want to be a part of the mafia anymore and declined an offer to become new don Leone. Most people lost hope after his refusal and left the Leones. It was Toni Cipriani, the loyal friend to Salvatore that stood up and decided to take the mantle of don of Leone and continue the operations. He decided to leave Liberty City permanently and settle in the desert. More precisely Las Venturas. Leones still owned a part of the Caligula from a while ago. After selling their property in Liberty, Toni bought out the casino and hotel fully. Now he and Leones are always around Caligula. Toni is seeking to legalise his operation as much as possible without losing influence and money. Soon he found himself sinking financially. He and his advisers are working on dealing with the situation.

 

Tommy Vercetti and his Vercetti gang are stronger than ever. They rule the drug trade on East coast right now. Everybody is afraid of them thanks to their powerful friends and connections.Tommy wants more than he has. He is preparing to take over even the west coast and establish a total drug empire all over the USA. He sent his two best men to prepare his arrival in Las Venturas. He plans on controlling both the casino game and the drug trade in the country.

 

Carl Johnson became a wealthy businessman. He resides in Los Santos currently. He distanced himself from grove street families once again after the gang threat was over. He continued buying and repairing then selling properties for next few years. Bought himself a fancy apartment in a skyscraper in Los Santos. He and Sweet are not on super terms. He currently focuses mostly on his investments and his managed job for the rap star Madd Dogg. But even after all these years spend sitting in a chair and buying and selling stuff, Carl still knows to cause chaos. Especially when someone touches into his family and friends.

 

Claude disappeared after the events of GTA3. No one knows where he went or if he is even alive. There are stories about him working as a hitman for wealthy people around the country. No one knows for sure, but knowing Claude he is always somewhere lurking.

 

Victor Vance staged his death during '86 after making a deal with Ricardo Diaz. Diaz promised him a safe passage if he gave up his drug empire and left the town never to return. Tired of everything that happened by then Vic accepted. He flew to Mexico and lived low profile for years. He was with mercenary group for some time. He was kicked out after an incident and found refuge with Mexican outlaw groups. He managed to raise to leader status in a few years. He transformed the outlaws and made a drug cartel, called Mexican Cartel. He started expanding rapidly and is sometimes even seen in Las Venturas. Currently he and his Mexican companions are terrorizing the deserts of Bone county.

More to come. There is still stuff to be made and created (topic wise ofc)

 

(Seems like there is some upload problems right now. Its made and ready. I'll see to it asap)

(Might not be uploaded tomorrow, I'm not gonna be at home)

 

 

Skins:

 http://www.mediafire...ns_for_EotE.zip

 

Notes to self:

 

Its temportary for now, untill I find a way to upload my altered skin changes.

 

Note to self: NEVER make car routes across the damn dam

Making pre-script dialogue really kills the fun in designing.

There are 36 missions made and playable with chapter 3. It might go up to 40 when its all finished. Not many in last chapter.

 

Today is 8.V.2016. Man have I been busy with school. Right now its starting to settle down a bit. I've got a little more free time.

I will continue designing missions for this mission pack as the time progresses and I will only release them by chapters.

There are more things coming concerning this storyline so stay tuned.

 

21.V.2016. School is over. Now I have tons of free time for a while. I finished Chapter 2 today and I'm uploading it.

I believe that today I've made my best mission ever. If only I could stress the game over 80 objectives...

 

1.X.2016. I've been away a while, and I got back here. Again. And here it is Chapter 3 is released. Now its up to working on promotion a bit. This was supposed to be finished months ago, but I was a lazy slob.

 

 

I'm on my last school year right now and pretty busy, and not to mention the stress it creates. Its hard to find time to work on a project right  but I'm enthusiastic about this series and hopefully will have more spare time to develop it.

Bump.

 

THIS IS NOT DEAD YET.

 

Chapter 3 is released. Check it out. 36 missions in GTA style are playable right now.

 

If you would like to shoot,drive, blow up sh*t most of the time. This is the storyline for you.

Its simple, its effective. 

 

Setting up the skins is a bit of a pain in the ass I agree. Your choice.

Seeing as the story takes place in 2002 and Vic died in 1986 at the start of GTA Vice City.

I'm a little late with answer. Sorry for it.

 

I had to bend up the story a bit. It would be little stupid to have every protagonist in the MP except Vic.

 

In Vice City we see Vic get shot. (ofc. Rockstar confirmed Vic died. This is where I changed a little fact. In this version he survived.)

But what if he didn't die there, but got wounded and saw a chance to escape Vice City. (Vic wasn't really into crime, he did it because it was opportunity he had.)

He had a opportunity to leave everything behind and go into exile, he did (In my story.)

Years passed, he tried to live a normal life and found it unfulfilling, eventually getting back into crime.

Lances' death still haunts Vic. They were always on love & hate relation with each other. (As portrayed in VCS). Whatever happened between them, Vic always loved his brother, and he won't forget his 'murder'.

Vic didn't chase Tommy around in between '86 - '02. But as it happens they are both in the same place now and 'old wounds reopen'.

Just finished Chapter 1 and I must say I'm impressed. (I was too lazy to use spoiler tags, sorry)
 
The gameplay was quite fun in each mission. The mission 'Hunted' was well-made.  I must say it is one of the most gut-wrenching, well-executed missions I've ever played. Kudos for the effort. Loved how the story kept building up in each mission. I'd like to think of the mission no rest for the wicked  like a capitalization on all of the built-up pieces that add up to a puzzle. It’s not yet complete, but we’re getting there. Damn! You didn't bore the player with too much cutscenes and dialogues. They were in the right proportions and contributed well to the development for the story. I nearly jumped when Claude popped outta nowhere and shot Jules. That cutscene which happened prior to Jule's death kept me guessing but I didn't realize that someone was hiding in the kitchen. The chase which followed that was brilliant and tough. I lost him two, three times but managed to beat it after a few trys. 
 
There's nothing much to complain about Chapter 1. However, I'd like to point out something which pissed me off about your missions. You successfully managed to grab me by my throat with the Hunted mission and I was like damn! there's gonna be more fun stuff like this ahead. But unfortunately, the follow-up mission - Asset in the city-  was a bit turn-off . I mean, there wasn't really much of a gameplay except the 'drive there and see him' element. Some gameplay other than that would have been nice. But if you think that might be irrelevant to the mission, then that's ok. And, the same happened with the Key to the City mission. 
 
Anyway, I haven't played chapter 2 yet. Will play it when I get time.

Thanks dude, This means a lot to me.

See, I'm a type of guy that makes story of MP first then makes missions following the story. (Hence sometimes can be little boring)

Overall I think First chapter is the weakest here. It was all pretty fresh and I was still figuring out what I'm doing.

Can't wait for your full thoughts after finishing the whole thing. Story just keeps building unpredictably. There are some cool missions, there are some elements reused here and there, Changing some stuff ment changing the story, which I didn't want to do.

 

For me Chapter 3 was the best one I ever made. Wait till you see that.

Hint: Mayor reveal about Claude...

 

There are 46 missions here. You only played 12.

 

Looking forward to reading your opinions again

I had free time to play some DYOM mission packs and I chose this one and I just finished Chapter 1.
This mission pack needs more attention seriously. If you are a GTA 3D era fan you have to play this mp.

Good job Aflien for the first chapter I hope and the other chapters would be great. The best part for me

was when Claude killed Jules and he ran away. Anyway I will give a feedback again when I finish the 

second chapter. Great job!  :^:

I agree. Aflien, dude, you happened to be in DYOM at the wrong time, my friend. Seriously, you deserve more than what you're getting for your MP. 

 

And I just got back from playing Chapter 2. I noticed the improvements you've made in in Chapter 2 which lacked in Chapter 1. The missions were quite long and not just limited to 'drive here, there' stuff. However, chapter 2 started a bit dull but it managed to pick up pace once Chad made it to the desert. Loved the part when he and Jose dealt with the mexicans who were hiding in the back of the truck. The third-person cutscene at the end of the mission Old Friend when Chad gets knocked out was really creative. It was like watching a movie. I did find it foolish on Chad's part to confront Vic like that. And I have a question regarding the mission ​Behind enemy lines. Enlighten me if I've missed something but how did Vic know that Chad and Vito were Tommy's men? It did not sit with me. Care to explain? I mean, Vic could have lot of enemies, how did he exactly find out that they were Tommy's men? Did Vito confess about it before Vic beats up Chad? Apart from that, the stealth which followed up after the cutscene was well-made and also quite tough. I managed to beat it only after a few trys. I don't have much to comment about the rest of the missions. I had to be real careful in the mission Hell Broken loose.. Vito killed me with the RPG when I ran into close combatss with the Mexicans. It wasn't really a good idea to let him handle that, as Chad said. Now as for the Dam the river mission, you could have added a dynamite object in the place where Chad places the bomb as it seemed a tad odd to see the spot empty after Chad implements a bomb there. I didn't see Vito's death coming. You really seemed to have derived a lot of inspirations from movies.. it shows in your cut-scenes. I laughed when the ceilings collapsed, assuming it fell on Vic but turns out I was wrong :D

 

In the future, I'd like to see you make a non-GTA styled missions as you seem to have the potential to create a pretty decent MP which might seem less-ordinary. Anyway, I'll be back with more feedbacks when I finish up the whole MP.

Wow, thanks so much for this. It truly means a lot.

Appreciate the opinion.

Vercetti Inc. and Victors mexican mercenaries are big gang with its own hierarchy which I haven't explored out in the MP itself. (I'm not sure if it would be good idea explaining the structure. From associates-soliders-leaders-underbosses and so on) They all have informants, snitches here and there. From time to time they give good info to their Leaders, sometimes they don't. Vic's attack on the truck wasn't random. Since hearing the news of war happening in Venturas between Leones and Vercetti he saw a chance of getting his revenge.(rather bit illogical revenge on Tommy)(Hes rather calm calculating guy, but his grief for his brother is blinding him from time to time)).

Vic had hoped to lure Tommy himself (Considering his rampaging personality)((He calmed down a bit during these years)). It didn't happen. I can't remember right now if Vic knew exaclly who he lured in a trap. But after holding them both hostage for a while, his inside men confirmed their names. (Chad & John are kinda like famous in the Vercetti gang considering their relationship with Tommy.) Afterwards triads and Mexicans ally. I originally planned a mission that explores their meeting and reasons for the alliance. At that time I didn't really know much details on the end game, MP was planned to be even longer than it did, so after drafting the Chapter down for couple of times Triad & Mexican alliance meeting got accidently dropped out.

 

Chad getting caught was his big mistake, he didn't follow the orders. I believe he was just to follow the mexicans and report back their location or any other info uncovered, but Vic played it smart. He showed himself openly and had his men hidden.

Seeing Vic there almost all alone Chad rushed in hoping to end the desert campain and get back in Venturas ASAP. And you know how that ended up.

Maybe I should have killed off Vito and Chad there and continue with John as a protagonist. It wouldn't be fun tho. John is fully loyal, and Chad has his own goals.

 

As for the dynamite, Back there I didn't even know there was a non exploding tnt object. (I didn't do much DYOM exploring. hah.)

 

All in all, its far from perfect, no one really can make a perfect MP, but I believe its a damn good one and worthy of being played.

Looking forward to more reviews.

I have to ask. Did you use cheats like "Infinite Health" or "Invisible Car" when you tested the missions yourself? Because these mission seem extremely hard to complete without them.

 

I played the first mission and I have never failed a lot like this on any normal circumstance. I concluded that it was my bad driving and that I had underestimated the traffic of SA. So, I finally played the mission patiently and succeeded. 

But then, the bar fight in the second mission . We are right in the middle of the enemies and all of them possess pistols. My partner is hilariously low in health and so am I. I understand the realism but this is a ridiculous amount of sh*t I have to deal with. I keep getting knocked even before I could take some sort of cover.

 

Maybe, again, I suck and no one else had issues. Perhaps, there was some easy way to do things, like with help of some armour. 

 

I don't plan on using a Trainer or cheats; I want to complete this MP without foul play. This looks really promising and I don't want to miss playing this. So please help me out.

 

I will try doing this mission again see if things work out somehow.

@Dr.John.

 

Feel free to cheat when you find it too hard. Main focus of this MP is the story, not its gameplay.

 

I tested every mission without cheats and managed to pass it. (ofc. when testing for bugs I do use all kinds of cheats to avoid dying. Believe me I played every mission about 5-10 times during the debugging period and got sick of playing it, lol)

 

I understand it can be bit hard sometimes and sometimes super easy. (I failed on setting difficulty right. Sorry. I'm playing this game for good 10years now so I guess its easier for me to play it.)

 

Simple BAGUVIX should be enough I think

I finished the mission all thanks to your Health Pickup. Well if the later missions turn out as challenging as this, then this might just be addicting.

 

So far, I am liking the premise. I hope you kept certain character traits for our older protagonists in future missions.  ;)

Bumping a project after a year just because it received insignificant feedback is still bumping an old topic man..
