couple of ideas to improve the game...

I put this idea in the wish list thread a while back, but I'd actually quite like to have a discussion about it so I thought I'd give it its own thread.

 

I was thinking about the situation with the police in the game, how they're always far too numerous, aggressive and always show up to spoil everyone's fun - so I thought it'd be an idea to give them limited number. It works like this:

 

Say the police have a force of 1000 men in a session. Each wanted level gives them heavier equipment (starting with cars and bikes, working up to helicopters, boats, riot vans and eventually even APCs, and the officers themselves getting more armour and bigger guns), but there's still always this set number of available men (which recovers over time when you kill them). If the number of available officers reaches 0, it unlocks a special period of lawlessness in freemode - let's say 3 in game days, whilst the police force regroups and rerecruits and then wanted levels come back. It would be fun too if this causes the NPCs of Los Santos to run wild and riot and loot and stuff.

 

This then, could be an activity for the whole session to get involved with if need be, wipe out all the cops so we can have a cop-free lobby for a while - a good pay out for a group effort I'd say. It'd be a bit like a free roam survival game. The fact that it'd be a tremendous waste of ammo could be enough to put the majority of people doing it all the time, I'd say. I dunno, a little input into this idea from the community might flesh it out any foreseeable issues. What do you think?

 

Another idea I had was a minor one about vehicle upgrade unlocks. As it stands now it's easy to exploit, people often (not me though!) just trade wins with each other for unlocks, which I think is tantamount to cheating, so how about a new system of 'racing points' - if you come first in a 30 player race, you get 30 points, if you come last, you get one (and obviously everything in between), but if you come first in a 2 player race, you only get two points. This way I think would discourage win trading, because it'd make much more sense to try your luck in actual races with larger lobbies - even if you finish somewhere near the middle or back you'd still more than likely get more points than the two you get win trading.

 

I obviously know it's a bit late now to implement either of these ideas, maybe in GTA6 online (GTAO-2?) - but I'd still appreciate any feedback and discussion. Just for fun!

 

Cheers!

These are actually great ideas OP.

 

I would much prefer that cop system or something similar. Would reinvent free-roam and could be the ideal solution for R* to not get rid off cops.

i like the cop system although no way it gets added.

 

i like the racing points idea, it's brilliant and is very possible for them to add into the game.

To be totally honest, when I started GTAO, I thought this was the case. Got that knocked out of me soon enough.

 

But yes, fair and sensible idea.

I know, I know, but the only things people wanna talk about in that thread are new clothes and haircuts for their female characters - as if that's important. Depressing.

man..i've made so many threads like these in the past. Why do people ignore the wishlist thread?

I actually like the ideas, limited number of cops per day or so sounds good, send an email to rockstar.
