Big Yacht in BoGT

Recommended Posts

Koenigsclown

Hi,

 

i think it's time for more boat action, with new boats in the BoGT DLC.

Maybe one of the club locations is direct to the waterfront. Here a possible spot:

 

Click!

 

It would be pretty cool if there is a kind of yacht (like this one seen in Vice City) next to this spot on the map. There is enough space to fit a bigger boat.

Maybe in the future of GTA, a boat could be a "Mansion" with a savepoint too. To have a "flexible" savepoint would be great.

 

What do u guys think?

Yeah it would be great if the Tropic boat returned. But in my opinion it ain't big enough, I would rather like to see something in the size of Cortez's yacht.

Tropic is actually in GTA IV but it's smaller

You drive a Tropic (as Niko) in Bernies' mission where you meet him down at the Pier.

 

In BoGT, I'd like to see boat races... like how you do the street races for Brucie... except on the water, in boats (obviously).

They even mention how "illegal boat racing" is going on in LC in one of those internet news articles (or on a Weasel News radio broadcast, I cant exactly remember which).

Hi,

I brought up yachts in the BoGT multiplayer thread a while back. My idea was to have one team on each yacht trying to destroy the other yacht. In other words YES!!! Yachts would be awesome!!!

This is an awesome idea! Never thought of that... icon14.gificon14.gif

I would enjoy having some yachts. Going for a drive around Liberty, turning on some music, and enjoy the landscape. Also, the idea of a boat being your safehouse sounds awesome.

If it was a big one it would be too slow to bother driving around.

This is a good idea, and with the Tug we know the engine supports big drivable boats.

 

Even cooler would be a drivable yacht that is also a safe house, but that's improbable.

True. Thought a yacht would have to be faster than the unbearable slow Tug. I'd like a full interior so maybe this 'yacht' could be more of a houseboat?

That would be awesome. Maybe something as big as Cortez's yacht with members of your gang (if Luis is a member of the Dominican gang)

They'd have to change the boat physics to make it possible to walk normally while it's moving and such probably.

Yeah i was thinking the same thing...I never got why that was such a problem for R*! Virtually every other game that has a physics engine [and not just 100% canned animations] allows you to walk on moving surfaces as long as they're not jerking around to much.

 

The ability to balence and hang onto on moving vehicles would add ALOT to GTA!! I, for one, would be infinitly amused by hanging onto a moving vehicle. You could do that in Dave Mirra ProBMX and that was on PS2!!!

But is it a vehicle or part of the map or accessible outside of missions or cutscenes?

Mega Yacht

It is unlikely that this exact yacht will be the one we might get to occupy, as, evidently, we get to blast the sh*t out of it with the new choppa'.

 

I could see a similar yacht act as a, as you put it, 'flexible safe house'. I am no expert, but I would expect a boat the size of the one in the screen shot, to require a crew to function optimally. I doubt it could be driven by a single person, even if he is the protagonist of a popular video game. Realism must be considered, too, as being able to manoeuvre such a large boat freely would lead to some clipping and collision issues quite fast.

 

So we won't be able to actively control the boat ourselves - but we can still get flexibility. Imagine a sort of GPS, much like the ones we find in cars, that would move the yacht to a designated position chosen by the player. There could be a few set positions around the coasts of Liberty City where you could set anchor, or certain anchor-able zones, far enough from the coast to cause any trouble.

I think the yacht is accessible before it blown up. I hope this one is drivable, but i doubt it confused.gif

Would be pretty cool, if u become a new yacht (like this one) for a 100% reward sarcasm.gif

... thats also a very good Idea wink.gif I so, u get a safehouse (the yacht) with a heli appears on deck. Would be very cool, to be free to change the locations with the yacht, and to use a heli or a tender boat to arrive on land.

Remember how they kept the yacht out of free roam in Vice City. But Luis can probably swim, so a gated dock wouldn't stop him.

^You can just land a helicopter on the yacht in VC. It wasn't clearly kept out of free roam.

Well, YOU CAN move all right on the tugboat. Except, Niko can only walk.

Some of these mega yachts are actually pretty fast.. Some can get up there in excess of 30 knots. Which is close to 35 mph.. For a big ship.. That is HAULING. Of course in terms of a small speed boat that'd be slow, but for a ship that big, it'd have a whole lot more horsepower than a tug boat. Which is all torque. I could see it cruising in between the islands at a fairly good speed.. But turning would be a pain in the as$.

 

No way a mega yacht like that is as slow as a tugboat.. I could see it being twice as fast as the Reefer.

Seeing the screenshots show walking on possibly moving trains, and seeing the big boat, maybe they updated the engine, so you can walk on movable surfaces smile.gif

I think the Yacht will only appear in a Mission, but not as a Driveable Vehicle.

Like in GTA: Vice City, All Hands on Deck...

 

Rather than Defend the Ship, you'll be the one attacking it.

Hahaha Magic Al.. Im surprised I never made that connection.. I mean I knew that boat was familiar, but never really tried to think of where I saw that boat from, now that you say Jaws, Im just surprised I never said that to myself.
