Trouble writes at Sweet's House for GSF. Also, CheeseNuke and Oxi Oxi can be removed since they've been inactive for ages.

I tried to play "smart" and edited my post containing the first piece of info. tounge.gif

As for the rest, yes I agree, Oxi Oxi has not been on for ages and CheeseNuke never even wrote any stories.

 

I seriously want this topic to be more populated, because it's boring with only 12-13 writers.

sh*t it must have been forgotten, but I asked in a previous post to buy molotovs for the Triads for $5. Could this be added? It'll leave me with $118 in the account.

Oaky doke...

Yakuza

Katana purchased

$45

$405 - $65 = $360

The Triads

Molotovs purchased

$5

$123 - $5 = $118

Mmmkay kids?

 

Also, Mac-10 added as well as an axe, since it was in LCS and a few people had purchased it already. I think we have enough weapons now. As for the M-60 comment from Flesh, the whole point in miniguns and other heavy weapons on here is that they're expensive, we don't to to give out a cheap alternative.

Okay, so I believe we're getting real close to finally getting the assets (renamed Rackets and Businesses) working. Here's the description and explanation that will go in the second post about them:

 

 

Rackets and Businesses

 

Rackets and businesses are here to help your gang earn money. Rackets are the illegal side of things, whilst businesses are on the right side of the law. Since both are under gang-influence and bring money to an illegal organisation, the government authorities will confiscate them if they ever discover them.

 

There are two parts to a racket or a business. They are the building itself and its asset, which brings in the money. Each racket or business costs an initial fixed price. One asset for that racket or business can be purchased for 25% of the cost of the racket or business. Take the Brothel as an example; it costs $1600 for the building and their assets are Whores, which cost $400 each. Upon purchasing a racket or business, you get one free asset. If you want to buy another asset for that racket or business, it’ll cost you a quarter of the building price. You can have a maximum of five assets for each racket or business. If you ever want to earn more from your racket or business, then you have to buy another building. Only three racket or businesses can be owned by a gang at one time.

 

The profits from rackets and businesses can be huge, and the benefits for your gang are endless. The buildings themselves down earn any money; it is the assets that are the earners. Each asset brings in 10% of its cost a week. For example, if you have a Brothel with three Whores then you’ll bring in $120 a week from them since they cost $400 each and bring in $40 weekly by themselves. The money from the rackets and businesses will be distributed every Sunday.

Quite long, but I think it covers all bases and shouldn't confuse anybody.

 

With the help of BUYG members, Jacky Fiend in particular, we've came up with a list of rackets and businesses and their prices (low/medium/high) which start around $1600:

 

Rackets and their accompanying assets

  • Brothel - Whores (low)
  • Proctection Ring - Enforcers (high)
  • Chop Shop - Carjackers (high)

Businesses and their accompanying assets

  • Strip Club - Strippers (low)
  • Bar - Barmen (low)
  • Car Dealer - Salesman (medium)
  • Garbage Route - Driver (medium)
  • Construction Firm - Builder (high)
  • Casino - Croupier (high)

Not many yet, but we hope that you'll all suggest some.

 

Another question: Would you prefer to mix Drug Facilities with Rackets and have them just produce money (easier to do and no excess drugs that will force you to write lots of selling stories)? Or do you want them to be kept seperate where they produce drugs which you then have to write about to get the money from them?

Phusion's story count should be "0 (23)" as he hasn't written anything for Cubans and has a total of 23 stories.

 

Tomorrow I'll write another boring story where I sell my drugs.

 

EDIT: The Desert Eagle should be listed right after the Colt 45 but not really that important.

 

EDIT 2: Trouble is at Sweet's House.

sh*t Flesh, you seem to keeping better tabs then the staff. Keep it up man, rewards may follow.

Typo fixed.

 

Also, I don't think "Carjackers" sounds too good of an asset, maybe "Thugs" or "Mechanics" for the chop shop itself.

Yeah, that sounds like an awesome idea. I think a good idea for a racket would be a pharmaceutical company which produces over-the-counter medicines, yet it also produces cocaine, marijuana, etc. The assets can be 'drug dealers' or simply 'dealers'. Sound plausible?

sh*t Flesh, you seem to keeping better tabs then the staff. Keep it up man, rewards may follow.

Such as? Just joking lol... Also why are the items such as parachute removed from the second post?

 

Anyways I will sell my kilo of marijuana for something like $3,200 in this coming story. This one also gives me $100 extra for multiple of five bonus. In case wondering 14 (35) is the number with this one.

 

 

The Triads, Chapter 14: Drugs Means Trouble

 

I need to get rid of our marijuana planted inside the factory before we're pulled up in a raid by the law. Well, we've just got us molotovs so others should fear us if they try something. The buyers are some place in Callahan Bridge below the bridge itself waiting. I walked out and went inside my Greenwood. "Are there the Leone's on our tail anymore, because if you see any, grab this molotov and throw the pain at them, ok?" I told my Triad friends to make sure the Leone's call off any attack if they feel like killing us.

 

It was a quiet day until now and arrived below the bridge, the dealers were waiting there. "So here's the drugs, hand over the money!" I nicely told the buyer. He handed over the money and took our drugs. "Thank you, mister, I appreciate it." I said to the buyers before walking to our Greenwood.

 

We drove off and on our way towards the fish factory there was a Mafia Sentinel waiting. They got out and started firing at us. We all did the same but instead threw molotovs and saw them screaming in their own pain and running away before dying. "Damn, the cops will be here any second, let's go inside before anything happens." I said quickly to everyone.

We went inside our car again but this time I only took my friends inside faster and drove off home which is not too far.

 

When inside I decided to give Kang a call about all the trouble we can get for this. "Hey Ka', it doesn't work like this - we should get out.." I said slowly as I was breathing in-between "Someday drugs will get us killed, but I just made it into this one. Drugs means trouble!" I continued. "I understand what your saying but we're getting pretty rich. Only a few deals away before we'll lay off." Kang replied quickly, the sentence saying few deals alone made me surprised "What? few deals? Are you kidding me, give it a rest." I replied back angrily. "Look - you need to calm down, relax for a while and I'll call you back later." Kang said and then I put the phone away.

 

Soon after I just remembered about Harry and decided to tell him about all of this. "Hey Harry - what's up? I just want to let you know I can drop by sometime tomorrow." I started the call with, "Cool, I'll be waiting for you then!" Harry replied and hung up as well as I.

@Flesh-n-Bone, just down one post: Edited to solve the conflict with Trouble's count.

 

I would like to join Grove Street Families at Sweet's.

Also, I need a Securicar for $1600 (remaining $12)

 

Chapter 1: The heist

 

I am homie 2.

 

Sweet, CJ and 4 homies are meeting on Sweet's.

 

Sweet: Let's heist the rich diner at Financial, in San Fierro.

CJ: This isn't Families turf!

Sweet: No gangs act there.

CJ: Except for the Rifas and the Triads a few blocks away.

Sweet: We need some weaponry, so let's go to Emmet's.

Homie 3: And we'll need some big car.

Homie 4: I have something which may help.

 

Everyone goes outside.

 

Sweet: An armored truck? Nice.

CJ: Me and three homies are on my Glendale, and Sweet plus one homie are on the truck.

Sweet: Let's roll.

 

At Emmet's...

 

Sweet: We're going to rob a diner, so we need some firepower.

Emmet: I got lots of MP5s and sub-machine ammo this morning. These are the weapons you requested. MP5s.

Sweet: Thanks.

 

At the diner...

 

CJ: Don't think on doing anything!

Sweet: Let's dump their money. CJ, you dump the safe. Homies, help us and watch our outside.

 

But, a patrol SFPD cruiser pops up and:

 

Police radio: Car 33! Car 33! Green colored gangsters robbing the bank!

Me: The police is on us!

Sweet: Let's go, we dumped all the money and everything is on the armored truck.

Everyone: Let's roll back to the Grove!

 

Lots of SFPDs, LSPDs and Rangers popped up during the path. Many roadblocks also stopped them.

Back to the Grove...

 

CJ: That was tight!

Sweet: Let's unload that on my garage.

First of all I am at Sweet's house already, and second please RichardG don't waste GSF money in a stupid securicar.

 

Here is my 9th story.

-----------------------------

 

 

 

Grove Street Families

Chapter 9- Las Venturas

 

10:00 PM

 

I was at grove street talking to some homies about Sweet getting to jail, and I saw CJ getting out of is house and entering is glendale.I walked to Im and asked:

“Hey CJ where are you going?”

“To Las Venturas see a friend of mine, want to come to?”Said CJ

“Yeah cool.”I said and entered is car.

He started driving to the freeway to LV.

When we got there, it was so many lights and casinos.He pulled over the Four Dragons Casino.

We both entered it and meet hes friend, Wu Zi Mu or Woozie.

“Hey Woozie it’s me CJ and this guy is Mike”Said CJ

“Hello Carl I got the ting you wanted. And hello Mike to.”Said Woozie

CJ and just were in is office and I was on the casino, I went to the bar to get some drinks, I didn’t wanted to gamble ‘cause i could lose all my money or get twice much but I didn’t wanted to risk.

CJ got out of Woozie’s office.

He told me that a train derailed close to Prickle Pine and Vagos were all over it, there was about 4 cars there.I entered is car and he started driving to that location.

When we got there the Vago cars were there and they make a run for it in their cars.

We followed them and I was doing drive-bys on them, they were to.

We add little chance of getting out of killing them all ‘cause they were four.

A little north from Prickle Pine they passed over the train rails and on train crashed into one of the cars and exploded in flames the car.There was only three now.

I popped one of the cars tires and he got out of control and a truck crashed into him, only two left.Things got bad to us because they popped one of our tires but we still add control of the car, CJ said “Gas tank!”so I started shooting to one of the car gas tank.

We were now in Red County close to Los Santos and I shoot the car gas tank, only one left.Our car didn’t take much more damage and started on flames.

“Bail out!” said CJ.

I bailed out of the car ‘cause it was going to explode,one car escaped and we add to take a cab to go home, CJ payed.

“Take me to Grove Street in Ganton”Said CJ to the taxi driver.

“Let me in El Corona please.”Said I to the taxi driver.

He dropped of CJ at grove street and me in El Corona.

I was going to see Cesar.I entered is house and started talking to him.

“Hey Cesar”Said I.

“Hi homie, I have to tell you something, that warehouse I talked about yesterday.Do you want to go there?” Asked Cesar to me.

“Yeah, for sure man”I replied.

“Ok holmes I’ll tell you everything about it tomorrow, I have to go now.”Said Cesar

“Yes, I was whit CJ in LV, there was some Vagos over a train, our car exploded and we add to get back home in a taxi.”Said I.

“Really?You should tell me first, I could help you guys.”Said Cesar.

“Do you know anything about Sweet yet?”I asked to Cesar.

“I heard I was going to be there for 6 months I think.”Said Cesar.

“Ok, I have to go now, cya.”Said I to Cesar.

So I got back to my home on foot and got to bed.

A small remark: BUYG and many important GTA gang references are missing the San Andreas Bikers.

 

They don't carry weapons, one skin is a drug dealer and biker, and they are seen roaming around Red County in Freeways.

We have a Biker gang. Yes, biker skins exist in San Andreas but they're never seen as a gang.

 

Also, Trouble is at Sweet's House, so where do you want to go?

 

Finally, you can't buy the Securicar.

 

EDIT: I'd love to hear all of your views on how to improve the topic. I'm not on about new gangs, cars, drugs or weapons, as we have quite enough of them already. I mean any new features you want added. Gang wars need an overhaul, so all of your ideas on them.

 

Thanks!

How about a coffee shop like the Hillside posse in GTA IV. I think it should be the cheapest.

 

Also, when are you gonna post your Gang story Jacky Fiend?

 

EDIT:

 

@BUYG Staff: I highly recommend adding Flesh-N-Bone to the Staff because I think he has been here long enough to know what goes on around here. He also reminds you guys of the typos and mistakes of the first posts.
