  2. Maybe, if the prices were reasonable and actions were fun. (57 votes [36.54%])

Your character has been doing the Thrust since 2015. Jazz hands were funny when they first came out, but now... eh.
My own character has been giving people the Peace sign forever, but sometimes with give the Thumbs up, but that's cuz I'm boring.

These days, whenever I see someone throwing the Jerk at me, I just roll my eyes. It's like listening to an old LMFAO song.

So, if you had the person at Rockstar responsible for new actions, locked in a room with you, a turtle, and a white board with DryErase™ markers, what new actions do you think you'd like to see brought to GTAO?

• Would you ever consider paying for new actions, much like we pay for car horns?
• If so, how much would you say is a fair price for new actions?
• What if there were new actions that included "props," like a classic glove slap, spanking, shooting an arrow, a gaseous burp, or snot flick?
• How important are the actions to your gameplay? Obviously they are fairly trivial, but a fun way to express a thought, reaction, or emotion to others.


I've put up a poll with the same questions, so feel free to elaborate, below.

Cheers!

FOR ME:

Spanking Action - I'd love to see a new action in which we could have our characters perform a "spank," either in the air or on another player.
Gangham Style Action - I'd also enjoy seeing that ridiculous cowboy riding-the-horse dance from Psy's classic video/song, "Gangham Style," as a throwback.
Mask-Related Actions - Imagine someone in a Pogo mask doing a monkey dance. A Cupid mask and they shoot an arrow. Zombie mask they move like a zombie. Etc.

It doesn't need a TEAM to be dedicated for animations...

 

It takes one person with modding experience  ..give them a few days..  Thats pretty much it.

Having a discussion about this is not going to stop the developers at Rockstar doing what they are currently doing.  Either join in the discussion or don't.

 

I still want the Running Man.  It made Playstation Home what it is today.  Wait... it's what?

I would like some car related actions.
Sitting on the hood, leaning on the car, basicly all the cool stuff that Rockstar uses in their promotion screenshots, that we cant use.

On your second question it asks if we would pay for new actions. If we had to use real money then I wouldn't buy them, however if we could use GTA currency then I would buy them all!

Nice thread by the way. It seems like you always come up with new and creative things to talk about.

I'd actually like an action where we can interact with the environment. In particular, sit on benches.

Okay, that may be so, but let's suppose they did, Mrnrfan182 - how would you approach the thread with a more topical reply?

I'm guessing you could come up with some interesting actions for us. :)

Thank you, jeremy813! Nice of you to say that! :)

As for the purchase, yeah, I was thinking of using $GTA only, the way we buy Masks, Ammo, or car horns. 

For me, I would be willing to shell out the price of a stolen Baller ($9000) for a pack of new actions, say 5 or 10. 
Or maybe purchase them individually for $500 - $2000 each? I'd go for that, if they were fun.

Yeah, I use 'em more than I'm supposed to.

If new Actions were available for purchase ONLY, would you consider paying for them?
Real $$ purchase or GTA$$ purchase? Cause I wouldn't pay real money for it, but GTA$$? Depending if they're cheap, but that's highly unlikely.

Would you like to see new Actions that included props?
The cigarette and cola and beer already include props. But it would be cool to add some of the "Scenarios" from Menyoo's mod menu. You know what I mean ;)

REXX, this is something I was really disappointed with on day one of GTAO.
I mean, really - we can sit in chairs in our apartments and yachts, why not at the outdoor cafes or park benches?

Seems like a no brainer to me.

Also, to add to this, I'd love the ability to lie down and be able to shoot a sniper rifle.
While it's not an Action, it's still something we "should" be able to do.

I forgot about the beer/cigarette Actions – you're totally right!

I'd love to be able to sit down on benches.  It would make it even better if your blip disappeared when you did, like blending into the crowd on Assassin's Creed.

Brilliant!!!!

One thing that stands out to me, is if I remember correctly, early on in the life of GTAO, there were hedges/bushes that would stop a Rhino tank, dead in its tracks.

Then, after a certain point, they released the block on those bushes and we could drive through them.

Same with the Walk/Run in garages & apartments, where we could only walk. Then, they added the Run feature, which is still technically an Action.

Point is, Rockstar can do this stuff without needing a lot of resources or time devoted. It would require additional animations and maybe some prop creation, but much of it is likely already in there.

Sitting on a park bench? Pffft... it's already done! Just make it functional, right? I don't get it. :p

I turned off actions years ago.

 

A friend and I would grind Survival back in 2013 - 2014 to make our first GTAO million $$. I would accidentally perform an action during Survival and when doing so it would put my gun away and cause me to die from the enemy. Since then I turned actions off and no longer use them.

I don't see why this isn't doable, too. I love when I use the hatchet and once in a while, the hatchet gets stuck and my character has to yank to remove it. Nasty, but an impressive animation!

Oh my goodness! I'd running around in Passive all day long, farting at other players! LOL, alkaline_!!!!

Even better if there were about seven or eight different types of fart, with unique animations for each! :)

I never ever use them, but that's only because there are so few and non-personal. Even if they would bring dozens more, they would become boring after a while.

I'd like to see some custom options for this, just a few of them would create millions of different actions and get you your personal one-of-a-kind action.

Stuff like this was already implemented perfectly in 15-20 year-old games, so I see no reason why this couldn't be added properly now.

 

Edit: Especially for victory celebrations after races etc., it would be very easy to implement an editor.

Modders already do such things on PC. I've seen even some cool dance moves lol. I never realized our character models could move amazingly well until I saw that. I wish such moves were available for us not-ready-to-use-trainers-online folk. If modders can do that, then R* devs surely can. They most probably won't though.

Ya I'd be into more actions.  I use them a lot to communicate my intentions to others that I might not be able to talk to or message in a timely manner. I think they are very useful in the game.

I'm a big fan of well done animations. Compared to allot of other games R*'s anims are pretty damn fluid.

 

100% yes on Gandam Style (is it trademarkd or something though? Can you copyright a dance move?).

 

I agree it would be awesome to get some player interaction moves too. Not talking anything pervy but basic stuff like high fives and handshakes etc.

 

 

I'd actually like an action where we can interact with the environment. In particular, sit on benches.

That's a brilliant idea. Though it wouldn't be hard to spot the guy in the monkey mask from an npc :p

Also there's an action titled "Dance" when you're in a car but whenever I try it it says "This action is not compatible with your current headgear", even though I'm only wearing earrings.

I did enter the discussion, participated in the poll and posted an opinion theafter. You may not agree with it but its an opinion no less. I think the actions are pointless and I'd rather see 0 man hours put towards creating more...

...if you all don't want those opinions than make the thread asking what kind of actions you want, or go to the wish list thread.

• Would you ever consider paying for new actions, much like we pay for car horns? Yes. I would pay double what horns cost.
• If so, how much would you say is a fair price for new actions? $50k
• What if there were new actions that included "props," like a classic glove slap, spanking, shooting an arrow, a gaseous burp, or snot flick? I don't want any of those, but more with props would be awesome.
• How important are the actions to your gameplay? Extremely important. As a photographer and movie maker, I use actions everyday, all the time.  
 
 
If they added an update with only actions, I would be ecstatic. Basic things, crossing the arms, smoking a cigar (keeping a cigarette or cigar in the mouth would be nice too), interactions against vehicles and walls like leaning, more sitting animations, etc etc.
