Natural Events in GTAO  

128 members have voted

  1. 1. What Natural Events would you like to see in GTAO?



Recommended Posts

With a solar eclipse this morning, that got me thinking...Would it be a good idea if we had natural events such as solar eclipses and earth quakes for example in GTAO? to make it seem more "alive" Share your thoughts below! :)

I put Tornado so that I can escape one... IN A TORNADO!

In the PC version of GTA SA there was a mod that let you adjust water level and wave height. With this you could create massive tsunamis though it was pretty glitchy.

Doubt the same thing could happen in GTA 5 though, the water is too detailed so trying to move that much of it would likely crash the game.

All it did was increase the water height, which is just a simple edit. This has already been done in V actually.

It would be pretty interesting. Maybe a small sandstorm in Sandy Shores

I guess all the tank shells shaking the screen and what not count as earthquakes

I feel a sandstorm would be the only realistic one to happen. The map is just a bit too small to have tornados and doesn't "fit" the earthquake city feel, you know? It would just be weird for the screen to shake and then stop as there wouldn't be any destruction of buildings. Maybe throw in some typhoons (water tornados, right?) here and there on the edge of the map for boats and jets to experience. But yeah, sandstorm where you can't see anything.

eclipses and dust storms are the only ones i could see being realistically implemented as weather events. the rest would require changing the way the game works far too much. also i nearly laughed out loud at "meteor rights". lets petition the government to allow them to vote and get equal wages. (meteorites*)

I choose Other because I want Blackhole disaster to suck every players, then the game will break their disc, and burn their console.

lool didn't notice meteor rights.

I'm voting for that one.

Sandstorms would be cool, as would strong winds that bend trees in half and send lighter cars flying through the air, so you either have to take cover or get in a truck. Rain so heavy you can barely see 2 metres ahead and lightning storms that last for minutes at a time.

 

Also, I'm not one to point out spelling mistakes but Meteor Rights is worth a special mention.

I like all those ideas, but they aren't high on my priority list. Map additions and a casino come before all that...

SO WE CAN BREAK ALL THE CASINOS AND NEW MAPS LATER!!!!!!!

 

I like your thinking.

A survival would be interesting to play with a mild hurricane going on in the background intensifying as the waves go up.

but we'd just die

 

it would work in sp.....but online

Not necessarily, I like to think if there was a wildfire or a sandstorm I wouldn't just lie down and die. It'd be fun surviving in one and even if you did die in the end it doesn't matter. I jump out of planes without opening my chute in GTA for fun, not like virtual death matters.

 

I think if there were such things in the game though they should be very infrequent, once every two months or so and with no prior warning other than on your car radio maybe.

San Andreas takes it's name from California's major fault line, the only right answer here is earthquakes. I wouldn't mind if it's a pretty rare event (think Armored Trucks rare) but I can't imagine it'd be a very fun game mechanic. The camera would shake and every tree/prop/person in the area would be jolted back and forth for a few seconds. Doesn't sound very fun. Some car alarms would go off. Unless the ground tears open and buildings start collapsing I don't really see the appeal.

 

Otherwise the only other natural disaster that really makes any sense is wildfires, and it doesn't seem like the engine could handle that. & even if it could, the GTAV's smoke engine isn't good enough to give the fires any character.

I got greedy and voted for all of them :) I don't see any of this coming to online but it would be pretty sweet.

Anything that would change the landscape would be awesome. Flooding would be cool too. Having to use boats or something to get around would be pretty cool (for like 20 minutes).

High and low tides would be good

Already exists in V actually, although it's nothing major.

Hopefully R* will implement something like this into the game, the most popular seem to be sand storms which I wasn't expecting... :)

Just remember what ol' Jack Burton does when the earth quakes, and the poison arrows fall from the sky, and the pillars of Heaven shake. Yeah, Jack Burton just looks that big ol' storm right square in the eye and he says, "Give me your best shot, pal. I can take it."
