I'll try and keep on top of updating the main post showing where everyone and who everyone is, even though the table code makes me go cross-eyed. :)

I shall delegate most of the responsibility of this to you, then, but if I notice an update is needed, I too shall do so 👍🏻

 

 

In other news, I woke up today and wrote an entire plan for City of Lies 2.

Looks like I'm a day too late to the party here since the thread is already up, but considering the legacy of the previous bar and its unfinished strands, and the fact that people are keen for a restart anyway, it strikes me that a new location would've been a good idea, no? Rather than retreading the same ground that people already covered, that is. Like a spinoff to a show that takes things off to a new place to keep it fresh.

Iirc, some scenes in the story threads did take place outside of the bar. The bar was just a grounding point, a common ground so to speak.

 

Long time no see, Em. How you doing mate?

AEsob tries his hand at changing the initial loadout of Stalker: Call of Pripyat

 

4:00

Let's do this thing!

 

4:15
Yeah, I'm done, let's fire up the game and see if this works

4:16
WHAT! X-Ray engine 1.6 (game executable) stopped working? Okay, let's redo this sh*t.

4:30 (Meticulous research done, eye straining and finger hurting typing done)

Okay, done. Fire up the game!

NO! X-Ray engine 1.6 stopped working!!!!!

4:45 (Eyes burning and fingers hurting)
'Kay, now it HAS to work!
X-Ray engine 1.6 stopped working
(a moment of agonising silence)
AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAGH!

5:40 (53rd attempt)
X-Ray engine 1.6 stopped working
...IDIOTGAMEGOf*ckYOURSELF!
(Calms down) I'm an idiot, let's stick to writing.

 

Offtopic: Does anyone enjoy a nice Cigar once in a while? I read Athende's post in The Bar about Gurdeep lighting a Romeo Y Julieta, that reminded me that a friend once gave me a slide cabinet of authentic Habanos SA Cohiba La Linea Clasica Esplendidos, which basically is a seven inch long Cigar. I have only six left that I'm saving for some really special days.

 

I don't really smoke much, maybe one in every two or three months, and never anything other than a good Cigar.

 

Burns holes in my pocket, I know. But at least I'm employed.

Just a question...since the GTA Concepts subforum has been nuked, and the topics moved into GTA series chat. Should someone now post there, or are we allowed to post here.

 

Since GTA series chat is one f*cking huge place, bringing the concepts back here might also get some traffic going.

 

Just asking.

I think concepts would still go in series chat. This sedtion simply isn't for full on concepts. People can post the story of them here but listing all the other bits like radio maps and such, nah this isn't the section for it.

Yeah, technically we've had what you'd call concept threads here but usually they're accompanied by an actual story or a game script. Some of the most successful topics have been made up of concepts, fleshing out ideas with full storylines, character developments and graphics. I wouldn't have thought a list of weapons and songs from sub-par radio stations would constitute a topic here. :)

No, of course I don't want weapons lists and sub par radio stations in WD, of course not.

I'm not saying I don't want to see them, I do want to see them, I just want to see more than that. :)

For me it has to be more about the story. If they're there, they have to pretty much be bolted on or woven into the story. I feel it's a slippery slope too, and I don't want this section inundated with second rate concepts. By all means post the story here, like has been done in the past, and if you've posted the story, other elements can be added, but the story has to be the focal point, so I'd say no to 'concept' threads as we know them.

 

That said, maybe it'd make a degree of sense to merge WD with concepts, or at least have the latter as a sub forum in expression.

That was what I meant Mokrie, to have a concepts subforum in expression.

Yeah, concepts are fun to read and a lot of time is dedicated to creating them. I sure would like to see a story to accompany the concept.

 

Speaking of story, I posted a while back that I was having difficulty getting my stories copied and then pasted to the forum. I think I have found the problem. Keep an eye out for my GTA IV fan fiction and original story. I hope I haven't put the cart before the horse. If it doesn't work out, I'll let you guys know.

You won't know if it works out or not until people read it.

 

So try not to worry. We've had and I've seen some truly terrible works, originals and FF. Just be patient and pay attention to detail, go through a good edit process (see pinned topic), and you'll be alright.

 

If you're referring to copy and paste; then it's a bitch at times but also a great chance for a last edit/proof. Paste the chapter, then before posting, read it. Make sure formatting spelling and grammar are on point, and trim any last bits of fat etc.

 

Editing is crucial so don't look at the copy and paste as a burden but rather an excuse to do one more pass

Hello.

 

I don't know if anybody remembers me but I remembered GTAF the other day and felt compelled to come here and post. I haven't written anything properly for years. Don't let this happen to you. Keep notes, keep ideas, write something, anything! Don't forget your ideas, even if you cannot put in the effort to create them. Keep going, never stop.

 

I hope you are all keeping well and enjoying life.

I don't remember seeing that at all. 2015... Hmmm

 

I've got a laundry list of stuff to read; I just need to catch up. I'm struggling with my current book, just isn't exciting me. Every time I go to read any of the work on here it's when I have ten minutes; I need more to offer feedback. I will get round to it all!
