Grand Theft Auto: Paradise City takes place present day in a fictional city in the USA. Though it is not necessarily in any particular state, the environment of it is a mix between the deserts of San Andreas and the beaches of Vice City.

You play as Marco Vargas (Marc for short), a 26 year old Costa Rican male. Marco isn't your typical GTA character, as he is more than just a criminal. He is a motor sports and stunt performer, who races Rally car/boat, F1 cars, Blue Bull Air Races, and of course base jumping. You can say he is an extreme sportsman by day and a criminal by night. You may ask why bother making him an extreme sportsman but I will explain that later on.

Paradise City is a fantastic place to live. It is actually divided West-side and East-side by a river. The East-side contains the very high class section of the city, such as the main downtown, government buildings, casinos, as well as the 5-Star beachfront hotels.

While the west-side isn't as modern and nice as the east-side, it is still very pretty. However some parts on the west-side are home to a few local gangs that are always fighting each other.

These gangs are the Mexican gang, the Black gang, and the rednecks. The Mexican gang and the Black gang are fighting about drugs mostly, while the redneck gang are fighting both because they are racist.

Places to note:

: The Grand Prix race track. This is where people can race legally. Marco competes here often.

: Turtle Lake. Being so close to East Paradise, it is a popular spot for many activities, such as boat races, fishing, etc.

: The beachfront hotels. You will find the richest of the rich here, as well as gorgeous babes.

: Glory Holes golf course. Where the rich and famous come to enjoy their weekends.

: The desert. Contains everything a desert has.. including sand dunes (a popular place for motor bikers and ATVers), as well as a mountain range to at the northeast. Also contains many places where Rally Car Events are held. Marco is a regular here.

: A dormant volcano. A popular tourist destination.

: An inlet where people come to ride their boats, as well as the location for one of the Blue Bull Air Races. The airport to the west is where the pilots take off.

: More desert, also known as no-man's land. Except of course when the other Blue Bull Air Race is being held here.

: Another inlet, also used as a location for Blue Bull Air Races. This one is within view of the city skyline, so fans don't need to travel far.

: Suburbs. Where middle to upper-class live if not in an apartment in the city.

: The Paradise Aeronautics and Space Administration (PASA) center. Home to the nation's space program, it contains all sorts of high-tech equipment. Maybe a jet-pack? Who knows...

: Fort Green, a military base. Contains a runway for fighter jets, as well as Apache Helicopters and tanks. Its not very pleasant when they come after you.

: Paradise Luxury Cruise ship. This massive ship is docked just off the edge of East Paradise.

: East downtown Paradise. One of the nicest urban areas on the planet.

: Rapiér Park. A large wooded park for people to come and enjoy the nature. Rumor has it that there is a man who hides in the bushes and jumps at you with a knife at night...

: More suburbs.

: The trailer-park north of West Paradise. It is home to the Rednecks.

: Countryside with small mountain ranges. A great place to hike, or ride your motorbike.

Instead of listing every vehicle here, I went ahead and made a large image (600x3000 pixels is the largest one I think) for each vehicle category. Clicking the following images you will see the car along with the real name and model of it for reference.

Marco used to be a millionaire. He had a perfect penthouse, luxury cars, and a nice fat bank account. That all changed when he invested money into the wrong business, and got scammed out of every last penny. He had to sell about every one of his material objects in order to continue living in his home, but after a while he completely ran out of money and lost that as well. He had so much anger that he realized he no longer cares about money, but about getting revenge on the man who did this to him.

And that would be Karl Magnusson, a Swedish investor but more importantly an extremely influential black marketeer. He is essentially the head of all the black market activity in Paradise City, including weapons, drugs, and counterfeit money. He also owns shares in many of the businesses around the city, so there are a lot of people who are willing to protect him and his money.

Types of missions include:

Throwing(purposely losing) some of the extreme sport events that Marco competes at, in order to help someone who is betting on it win said bet in exchange for their help. Or perhaps you will choose to win the race to keep your dignity, but making it harder to reach your final goal (revenge).

Sneaking aboard a cruise ship (either by boat or parachuting from a plane) while it is in the middle of the ocean, in order to take someone out.

Helping out businessmen's "special interests". This includes everything from breaking someone out of jail by becoming a fake cop, kidnapping people, blowing up the building of a rival business, and even becoming a bounty hunter.

Helping out one of the three gangs; helping the Black gang they will provide you with strength (call them for some bodyguards), helping the Mexican gang will allow you to do drug deals for them and earn money, and helping out the Redneck gang allows you to use some of their special weapons (such as a chainsaw).

In one mission, a farmer needs help destroying a rival farmer's crops. But going and lighting them on fire won't do, as the fire could spread and ruin his crops as well. You agree to help him by flying his crop-duster airplane, but fill it with a chemical that will kill his crops instead of pesticide.

Side missions of course include participating in F1 car and boat races, Rally and motocross races, and Blue Bull Air Races. Depending on your place in the event it will net you a varying sum of money. Other side missions include the usual; drug dealing, car stealing, etc.

-This is still and will for a long time be a work in progress-

So you probably wonder why I felt the need to make Marco an extreme sports guy. Well to put it simply, I've been watching the show Nitro Circus on MTV and love it, and thought it would be awesome to have a character in a GTA game that could do the same stuff that they do on that show. It also makes sense to make him this, instead of just some random guy who goes and flies planes and speedboats and dirt-bikes, seeing how you would actually need to be a professional to do those sort of activities. I guess it would add a bit of realism to the whole situation.

 

I will add more to this, such as more music for the radio, more mission details, and possibly a very detailed map including all roads, buildings, special vehicle locations, etc.

 

If you have any questions about anything don't hesitate to ask, or if you have some ideas to add then please do so, and of course posts your thoughts!

The character under the helicopter in your boxart looks like one of the blues brothers. wink.gif

 

Like the cruise ship idea. I seem to remember seeing a Vice City mod on Youtube that let you sell drugs to passengers. It looked cool enough. The fact that he is a stuntman is a great character idea since criminals live in the fast lane, especially those of GTA. There are a few good tracks in there.

 

The idea that he is going after a dirty investor is quite a good one, especially in a time we people see those people for what they are. Better yet, the antagonist should have been a corporate banker, Zionist villain that the Government help bail out because he gave bad loans he knew could not be paid back. Then you could get on a trip to Sweden where he is having a trip with his wife and girlfriend... you fill in the rest. I get carried away enough as it is.

Well the reason why he looks like one of the blues brothers, is because he is tounge.gif

 

The trip to Sweden part is a pretty cool idea, I could see it being played out the same way you went to Liberty City in San Andreas.

 

And also to S.A.Maniac, if you have any ideas go ahead and post them. I'll get started on the gameplay section next

This is very original. I like all (nearly) of your ideas I can't bother to point out tiny flaws since they are so damn tiny. Well done, and to consider you just started this topic, I have very high hopes for this topic.

Awesome, I guessed right.. where's my cookie. panic.gif

 

 

Hope you don't mind. I don't got much else to do, being unemployed and all. sigh.gif

 

Radio suggestions for Rock and Country. I know I will never be lucky for any of this to appear but meh....

 

Honest, much of it is damn good. Check out the first track if nothing else.

 

Gerry Rafferty - Baker Street*

Chris LeDoux - This Cowboy's Hat

Chris de Burgh - Spanish Train*

 

 

 

Conway Twitty - Slow Hand

 

 

 

Eric Clapton - Change the World

Moe Bandy - Cowboys Ain't Supposed To Cry

Peter Gabriel - Big Time!!

 

 

 

 

Ronnie Milsap - I Wouldn't Have Missed It For the World

 

I would like to find this song where the guy is saying "Get it on, get it onn-ahh-onnnn" ... too bad I don't know the rest of the words. And no, it is not the bang a gong song.

So by your logic Officer Tenpenny, Catalina and Mikhail Faustin's roles were all racist towards blacks, Colombians and Russians?

 

But if you do go down that line, don't make the character too stereotypical. Nice thread start BTW.

ANYWAY, I look forward to reading more of the OPs ideas. You've got some nice ones. "Evilbastard" must lack a creative mind.

Great game, but no offense, my favorite is still The New Improved Vice City (or GTA: V, if you like) by 08LasVenturas.

Also, I think it would be better if you parodied a real-life city, because all GTA cities (except Anywhere City) are parodies of real-life cities.

When I originally thought of the city, I actually planned on it being like a "mix" of Miami and Los Angeles. For example, you will see buildings and landmarks from both of the cities in Paradise City. But the environment setting, the southern beaches are those you'd find in Miami, and the northern desert would be what you would see in the Nevada/California/Arizona region.

 

so in other words, its extremely loosely based on Miami and L.A.

Again, i'd buy it, but you probably should think of a different name. The Burnout series already took the paradise city name. Sorry.

I was actually considering making up a new name for that sole reason before I made this thread, but I figured its not a big deal considering it was technically just called Burnout: Paradise (though yes Paradise City was the name). Also I'm sure Rockstar got the name Vice City from Miami Vice, which are similar names. Plus it is too late now to change the name haha.

Mate how did you make that screen its very good, and also i just want to say that this topic deserves over one hundred posts because it is the best idea on the GTA Next section although Dragonex100 Lincoln State is amazing because of the work he has but in but going by the map and the screens and the story this is my favourite on the forum. Well Done!

 

PS: I will give you some ideas later but not now because i am busy.
