Drug trade in GTA is a fantasy I've had ever since i've watched scarface for the first time.

I've thought  about it a lot and how it could work but none of us think the way Rockstar does, mostly because their first interest is to make money and because they understand the limits of manpower in coding for a video game, I recently learned a bit about coding and I realized it's not so simple as making a demand on a forum.

So to make a gameplay feature work within the parameters that rockstar have followed throughout their history I decided that Drug Trade could work in the same way as buying a property in GTA V , basically the property you buy is your front for the money you make from selling drugs , drugs wich you get from seeking sellers,  stealing them or making them ;each with their own pros and cons:

 

1.Seeking sellers , would be the safest way to conduct business because you're not provoking any party , but the downside is that you get less as a result of using your own money to later sell at a profit

 

2.Stealing drugs , is on the contrary the most dangerous way to aquire product for obvious reasons ,you can get around a counter attack from the poor victims of robbery that you have just violated by sending a stickup crew to do your dirty work , this method is unreliable sometimes because they can get killed and if they don't you have to give them a cut of whatever you make of off whatever drugs they stole.

 

3.Making your own product is kind of a middle ground between the two because of the different drugs that you can make the quality and therefore price of the product is obviously affected by how good your manufacturer is .

 

You will have employees who work for your business and also the people who work in your drug operation who will each be compensated for their efforts ,leaving you, the KINGPIN with your cut , could be small could be big all depends on how well your business strategy is.PS If Rockstar goes for 3 characters again each character could have their own types of drugs they sell, for example Trevor :Meth

                          Michael:Coke

                          Franklin: Weed

Well the closest thing to drug trade was in Chinatown wars where you buy and sell drugs to dealers.

1.) Meet sellers and buyers throughout the game like Strangers and Freaks.

2.) Do drug deals like we did for Little Jacob.

3.) Drug wars like TBOGT. Be careful who you rob because they could be one of your buyers or sellers!

4.) Gang wars like Vice City Stories to establish turf. When you take over a turf, San Andreas style drug NPC's that are aligned with you take the streets. When you don't own the turf, rival drug dealers do. Be careful whose turf you contest because they could be your buyers or sellers!

yeah really cool ideas man!

 but the buyers and sellers should be like the more rep you have the more trustworthy and reliable the buyers and sellers become out of respect for you .

I like your ideas. 

 

If you were lucky to play Scarface: The World Is Yours, they had a great feature where you start off at the bottom again by street dealing. There was a "mini-game" thingy where you would try haggle to get the best deal from the coke you are selling. As you progress the amounts you can deal got bigger. When you were more experienced you could buy warehouses. Warehouses ensured you had more coke to deal. Some missions had you resupplying the warehouses. With the warehouses, you bought fronts like stores. Each front offered you a perk IIRC. Anyway, those fronts would sell your coke. So you didn't street deal anymore. You topped up the warehouses and then delivered to the fronts you owned. Eventually you got to importing very large quantities where you would go out on a boat and collect at sea and go to some Caribbean islands, making sure you avoided rival drug gangs and the coastguard on the way back. 

 

It was an endless game that could finish only when you got bored of making cash. There was so many things to buy that there was always the incentive to keep at it. You even had to bring your cash to the bank that would wash your money for you. You would have a mini-game to haggle to get the best price for the money laundering. It was great.

Spoiler

GTA should learn a lot from Scarface: The World Is Yours, it was an amazing game not just a GTA clone.

Yes, it had some great innovations. It's often an overlooked game but things like being able to buy things for your house, the taunting feature and the excellent drug-dealing missions and empire building really felt like that great crime game that old GTA's used to feel like.

I'd keep playing Scarface if it wasn't for this damn constant audio cut-off bug, I'll have to look around to see how to fix it.
