A new immersive way to play


almico

Recommended Posts

Do you find yourself playing in an invite only session because you hate getting in to gun fights instead of enjoying Los Santos and Blaine?

 

Me and my friends play in a way that will immerse you and I think some of you guys would love it.

It is basically roleplaying but in a way that we all can enjoy.

IMPORTANT

 

This kind of immersive play will only work if you follow the rules. It is worth it.

Rules

 

Create a new character for this play style

  • Player Overhead Display = None
  • Radar = Off
  • HUD = Off
  • Targeting Mode = Free Aim
  • Weapon Target = Simple
  • Spawn Location = Last Location

You can pause to check the vicinity and who is around you.

 

Rules Continued

 

  • Choose a home

You don't have to stick to the homes R* have given us. Your home is where you park up your car and leave your character.

  • Dress for the occasion

If you want to be a gang member, wear the correct colour and play as that character. It becomes clear who is playing as gang bangers..

When someone is wearing pedestrian clothing that means they want to enjoy the world without any bother.

  • Don't just shoot

Imagine if you're wearing purple and you bump in to someone wearing green in the Davis area...

Have a realistic altercation. Punch it out.

Why don't you and your boys go drive around looking for a rival gang member to jump?

  • Care for your character

If someone pulls a gun on you in an altercation then flee.. They shouldn't shoot due to the don't just shoot rule.

The radar is off so you should be able to get away. If you see them later.. tail them.

(You will be surprised at how well you can blend in as an npc when you play like this)

 

  • Don't use unrealistic weapons like rocket launchers.

 

Finally

 

I have more things I could add but there is no need to make it more complicated than this.

 

This makes south central area dangerous but those who want to explore wont be hassled unless someone is roleplaying as a drunken hillbilly on a quad flipping you off.

I see a lot of lurkers.

If anyone is interested but doesn't have anyone to play with then post your gamertag/ PSNID. You can add each other.

 

If someone is playing like a douche then their dot will be red when you press start. Kick'em

 

My PSNID that I use for this type of play is Familam_GSF

Cool idea, moved to 'Find a Lobby & Meetups' since I think it'll do better here.

Thanks Moonshield

 

I often think people want to try things like this but are hesitant for some reason. Just give it a go!

@garyfromscotland -

 

You could play as a phsycopath who dukes it out with cops all day long as long as you respected other players. It would be fun to see.

 

On the other hand, if you prefer gun fights with players then standard online is the place for you :)

Suppose I could act as that drunk who starts fist fights where ever he goes? I can just pretend I'm on buckfast :lol:

Haha yeah it would be funny.

 

If you walked towards me whilst staggering then i'd know something was up.

Trying to chase someone whilst drunk without a radar though... is a challenge in its self.

Beer effects seem to last way longer now on GTA.

Yea i do this from time to time. In fact when im playing with my friends or solo i usually stay in a solo lobby because i like doing things such as picture taking, modding cars, offroading, all kinds of roleplaying and etc. i also do deathmatch, racing, and missions. You also on xbox?

Its a cool idea, if I had more time on my hands I'd defo give this a go.

Maybe in a few weeks time. I'm part of the Heist Prep roleplay thread wich is completley different but also cool.

 

Godspeed mate.

Yeah I like to thing of creative ways to enjoy myself in my free time.

 

@PlayerSince97 - It is really cool, honestly.

The only problem is having people who who like to play like this online at the same time.

Add me if you want and I will show you how cool it is when we're both online.

Made a minigame months ago where someone on a rooftop would "find the player" and the player would blend with the NPC's on the street below (removing the whole HUD, etc. as you're doing). Really fun but these type of threads don't get as much attention as they should. If you've got +8 people, I would LOVE to be part of your lobby.

Reply to my comment if you get those 8 people. Maybe make it so we stay in a certain area like Sandy Shores or Vinewood boulevard. :)

*edit*
PSN?! DAMNIT!

Sorry about earlier Almico, my PlayStation froze and I was too lazy and hungry to kick it back on.

 

But I have tomorrow off, so just hit me up on there whenever you'll be on!

 

Btw, that CJ mod.....speechless.

 

I'm hoping you guys really kick it off with R* and make something happen out of it, especially if Young Maylay is down!

Cheers

I never really hang in the hood so that's why I was getting lost so easily.

 

But I'm ready to play at 11pm EST tonight if anybody else is down.
