The Creators Lounge

 

Well, since the writer's discussion fellas have their Social Club and the DYOM designers their Designers Lounge, I thought that concept thread writers need a lounge too. I think we don't need a huge explaining where this topic serves for, since it's obvious. Here, you can ask, chat and discuss around anything that has to do with concept threads.

 

Oh and please keep the spam out of this topic.

I made a concept thread called GTA: Kearnsey City a few days ago.

 

Go ahead. Check it out.

 

I just want some more feedback that's all.

 

I have a question too. How can I put pictures on my thread without a link? Like the GTA logo and stuff.

Somehow, I think that Life's Price is loosing it's fame. I get comments like ''nice missions man'' and such, but can't find anyone to discuss the story with.

I saw your thread (made men) thread. I like the story, it seems unique to me. I'm not being generous just to make you happy either, I can safely say it's a whole lot better than mine. Mine sucks btw lol

 

But even though it sucks, check it out. I'd like to see your feedback. It's my first concept, so it's far from professional like yours.

Oh sorry. I got mixed up with Made Men and Life's Price. Probably because they both have two words in their names.

Having suggested this some time ago in hopes of boosting fledgling activity, it's nice to see a lounge up and running in here. Hopefully now, everyone's needs are taken care of and if anyone lacks feedback, they can drop by here and request some notice. The OP could do with some bulking up in terms of links out to stop people asking over and over again those same tired old questions. Akavari's So You Want To Make A DLC? would be a perfect mention, as would the creating guide by Blitz. Thanks for putting all this together, Mati.

 

To ask something I've been pondering for a while now, what is it that motivates a user to get involved in a concept thread through the processes of leaving feedback, or comments amounting to such?

With one of the major incentives to continue on with any story being the response, what drives you to post on a particular topic?

 

That you enjoy the missions, they interest you? A user-friendly interface? Graphics? The topic starter is your friend? Features? The possibility of the interest being reciprocated?

 

I ask this because I notice occasionally certain topics acquire a natural fan base, while others do not. They fade away, even though they're equally as good. For anyone thinking of investing their time, surely this must be addressed?

I take interest in the stories that are original, well-crafted, developed, realistic, etc. I also appreciate the aesthetic value of a concept, if the graphics and headers are neatly done or the color scheme is pleasing, all of these things can compliment the thread greatly. Aside from story and the way the concept is presented, gameplay features and the creator's taste in weapons, vehicles, side missions, and the like also play a role in how much I'll like the concept. If everything gameplay-related seems to come together around a certain theme, if I can envision myself playing it and enjoying it, then it works. I'll comment on a story if I feel it merits a compliment, or sometimes out of sympathy to the creator if there is a drought of feedback, but I don't expect the guy to return the favor.

I'm thinking about opening a new topic, called Concept Thread Reviews. You'll be able to add your concept to the queue and it will be reviewed, leaving some criticize and rated by a reviewer. Opinions? Edited by mati

Right now I'm working on a new concept called GTA: Cloveland, but I've lost it twice and I'm getting really tired of redoing it. I'm actually thinking of someone else doing it for me, because it's extremely irritating when I lose all my work.

Forgive me if I seem a bit abrupt but what is the point of and/or need for this topic??

 

So far it seems to just be a place for people to beg for more views. If a user wants feedback etc. can't they just ask in their concept thread?

 

EDIT: I now see the use for this topic in getting feedback on what people think of ideas for future concepts.

Err... Nobody will make the concept thread for you, that's not the whole point.

I've considered a GTA III DLC concerning the Leone Family under Toni Cipriani's control. It would have PS3-era graphics and a fourth region(Upstate), which consists of small towns, suburbs, and rural areas, but there is some centralized urban areas upstate.

 

The protagonist would be an undocumented immigrant from Southern Italy, who is recruited by the Leones. There would be new gangs, new cars, new weapons, and a whole lot more.

 

Still in the development stage.

 

 

I wonder what you guys would think of it?

Is that Hoveland or Homeland? Either might make sense. Logo is good but here we prefer to go off a plot summary as well.

Hoveland, and I know. I've been here since July 2010 and I've made one before, but I got banned and this is my new account.

I'm inclined to agree with blitz, I've updated D&S but not expecting much interest seeing as it had faded away.

 

I wouldnt mind see how Blood on the Hillside plays out though.

I've started work on Grand Theft Auto: New Britain. Even though I have done this before I want it to be done right because each time I did New England there were things I really messed up on.

What do yall think about a north african type GTA in a war torn country being invaded by a big time terrorists organization who has taken over the country and disbanded the government/military? You could raise money for the cause by doing all types of cool missions, create an army to fight the terrorists, do reconasiance, you could smuggle weapons, vehicals, money, and equipment through the border, and retake and liberate villages, towns, and cities.

Its something I've been thinking about all day.

Thanks for the reply icon14.gif And yeah I do sort of agree with you but I have so much I don't want my ideas to go to waste so I thought I would revive for the last time. Plus it's fun around Christmas time.

Cheers. If I'm going to do the concept again then I'm changing the story and that.

 

EDIT: I've decided I'm bringing it back. I feel there is a lot to do with it.
