Weather Effects


hawkstorm182

Recommended Posts

This topic is a discussion of what you would like to see from weather effects. I would personally like to see a real improvment in rain because in VC and SA it would rain for like a minute then clear instantly and stuff. In GTAIV i would like the feeling that it was going to rain and a more realistic response from peds like they take cover or have umbrellas. Maybe you want the same or maybe weather updates on the radio. let me and others know whatever it may be.

 

I also commented on something i did not like so please feel free to not only comment on what you want to see but what you dont want to see with the weather effects!!

Its not what I want to see, but rather what I don't want to see. For me at least, most nights in San Andreas were accompanied by Fog (at least in SF where I spend most of my time doing stunts) And the fog was really, well, crappy. I'd like to see either better fog or none at all. I'd like to see a small moon too if that fits with the topic, I dunno why but it always bothered me how the moon looked like it was going to collide with the Earth.

No more orange stuff at night...

No snow...

Better rain...

And yea, raining for longer, and you'd see the skys starting to gather..

 

And people would see cover,...

That was to capture Los Angele's atmosphere, it won't be returning for LC.

Why on earth would you not want it?

Basically agree there.

You could've sniped the moon to make it smaller you know.

I really think it would be neat to have snow. It doesn't need to lay on the ground, but rather just fall like on the map Bloc from Call of Duty 4.

like to see snow,but it I wouldnt like it to appear out of nowhere.

If it rained I would like to see puddles build up and when it stopped it would still be wet for a while

I think if we have snow, then we'll need some sort of calendar. Different weather with different seasons would be the best way to do it.

it would be like bully in that sense, after a certain number of missions it will be further in the year, Halloween, then snow for the winter...

Snow would be nice.... ice would be better. Freezing cold so you can't start the car, blow smoke when you speak, can't use guns you pick-up off the street cause they're frozen..... numerous frustrating and funny extras smile.gif

I like the "sound" of weather..thunderstorms and wind add to the feel of the game.

Yeah, sounds are something R* need to improve on in general. Cars, guns, and storms.

Hail would be cool.

Lightening would be even better. Real visible flashes with loud rumblings.

 

I hope peds make comments on the weather too. "Sonofabitch its raining again! And I just got this car washed!"... If snow "Oh, I'm walkin' in a winter sh*thole land"... "All this coldness is making my nips hard"... "Went to sleep in Liberty City, woke up in Antarctica"

... This, children, is how anti-realists are born.

 

Personally, I just want it to capture New York. In the past, they've managed to use weather to capture the mood of every place very well. Liberty City was dank and depressing, Vice City was sunny and warm but with coastal rainstorms, and San Andreas had different weather for each part of the map to fit the theme of the region. If they can do it again, I'll be satisfied enough.

 

Also, a quick semi-Off topic question: Is San Fransisco really that rainy and foggy?

I dont know, never been could be confused.gif

 

I like the idea of thunderstorms really good and also i want the introduction of interior exterior effects so you can see its raining when inside etc. evidence of this was shown in trailer 3 but that looked like a cut scene i want it during gameplay.

This kind-of goes along with weather:

 

-No more Mars sunsets, like in San Andreas

-Despite them saying, for SA, that grainy rain-effects are realistic - I've never seen any in my life

-No more potently colored skies which turn the ground and objects the color of the sky (like San Andreas)

-SA was claimed to have "realistic shadowing," but they forgot something, they forgot that your eyes naturally adjust to less light so you can see better - it was just too hard to see in San Andreas, even with the brightness turned-up, not realistic at all.. (PS2 version, can't remember if it was like such on the PC)

 

I couldn't think of any weather-related things that bothered me in III, maybe just in Vice City the night color tones were sometimes boring.

b& for posting naughty pictures

what about a tornado every now and then? tornado sirens would go off and you would see one off the coast. it would get windy and the peds would get scared and run. that would be awesome

but if you want it to be realistic then they have to close the bridges, right? because thunderstorm allegedly is the reason to close the bridges in vice city...

Yeah puddles would be cool. I think they gotta work on sound as well as visual weather.
