So R* didnt listen. (freeroam update)

EDIT: I've had a chance to experience the update and some of the events are not bad. My disappointed hasnt changed though as none of the events added are really exciting and most of it (besides challenges which shouldnt be an event IMO) just feel like deathmatches catered to the ppl who usually end up in Bad Sport. I appreciate the changes to the interactive menu tho. Regardless, my thoughts on the update remain the same. They didnt listen as far as things to do in freemode. "King of the Castle" is like a hold capture. "Hunt the Beast" is just a fancier way of ppl chasing a bounty. "Moving Target" is basically a Simeon Import mission. Again, its free and does add something to freemode. I'm just disappointed bcuz its basically just deathmatch stuff and not something I feel has longevity and replay value.

 

Another reason why the update is weak is you cant even experience it unless you have enough ppl in the lobby with you. :/ Whats even worse is the events are random and cant be triggered at will so if one comes up you dont like you just have to wait until the next one. If you dont like the next one either you wait again until eventually the waiting feels like no freemode update even exists. smh They shouldve looked to impliment some of the great ideas posted by the community. Those that have a high replay value and something we can trigger on our own instead of stuff a lot dont really care about which the game randomly decides what we will play. Some of the ideas I've read as well as came up with on my own that I believe wouldve been a dope update are...

 

* Freeroam Bank Robbing - All the banks should be open to being robbed just like the stores except they should only be available to rob at certain times of the day. Also, since the payout will be much bigger its understandable to add a cooldown period between robberies. Anyway, how it would work is basically the teller would be held up at gun point just like in store robberies except instead of them putting cash in a bag you would follow them to the vault area and they will open it. Once they do you can then steal the cash and escape. Depending on how you did it would determine how many stars you have during the robbery. There would be 2 ways to do it of course.

 

Loud and dumb - Can be done solo or with a crew. You or your crew run in and immediately shoot everyone. Then you or a crew member will have to push the button to open the door to the vault area. Then you or that crew member would blow the door and grab the money and escape. Once you blow the vault doors the alarm will go off and it then becomes a decision of how much money to take before the cops get there. Either stay long enough to take it all allowing the cops time to come and surround the banks or take as much as you can before leaving just before the cops can surround the bank.

 

Silent and smart - Can only be done with a crew. Your crew will go in with no guns drawn and everyone takes a position (if the teller sees guns he/she will push the alarm). When ready everyone acts together. Crowd control will keep the customers intimidated (if any NPC escapes they will call the cops so you must hold them at gun point to make them stay down), while another crew member holds the teller up at gun point to make him open the door to the vault area as well as the vault itself. Once its open steal the cash then you all escape. If done perfectly no stars are gained.

 

 

* Drug Dealing - After bank robbing I think this is the most wanted activity in GTA freemode. It not only adds another avenue to make money but it also adds more action to freemode. This idea doesn't require any major additional mechanics either as it uses mechanics that are already present in the game (gang attacks circles, Simeon's import feature and the weapon wheel drops). This one is explained in too much detail for this post so I made a seperate thread for it. Please check it out and give your thoughts.

 

http://gtaforums.com/topic/658997-what-about-this-for-drug-dealing-in-free-mode/

 

 

* Rescue Mission (credit to Gaffa for parts of this idea) - First they would have to implement getting busted online. What I mean is the cops dont shoot to kill at first. Instead they will look to arrest you. This means they will foot chase and try and take you down physically and cuff you (if you shoot at them THEN they will look to kill). Anyway, if they are successful with the arrest they will put you in the cop car and take you to the station. Your blip on the map will blink red and blue signifying you are being transported. Your mental state at the time of arrest will determine the way you are transported. For example, if your dot was white you'll just be in a cop car with two cops. If your dot was red you'll be transported in a riot van under protection of several SWAT team officers and cop cars. Either way once at the station a short cutscene will play of them walking you into the station. You then spawn outside the station. Your mental state at the time of arrest will determine what they take from you. White dot you just get fined. Red dot you get fined, lose your vest and the last weapon you used during your evasion.

 

OK now here is where the rescue comes in. Once they put you in the cop car you get a prompt on the screen asking do you want to request a rescue. If you dont you just get taken to the station. If you request a rescue Lester (who will know of your capture via police scanner) will send a text to the lobby offering the job. Your blip will then blink red and blue. Ppl then can come to your rescue, kill the cops transporting you and open the door to the vehicle and let you out. Once free you pay the person or ppl who rescued you using the share money feature in the interaction menu.

 

 

* Hitman - Can be done through Lester or any other contact you can call. They could also call/text you for work. Regardless, if you accept they'll send you the target and how he must be eliminated via text. A blip will then pop up on the map showing the target's location. Go kill him in the manor requested. The methods of execution should be creative so there are no simple kills. An example is put a sticky on the car they are driving, follow it and when they get to the requested location blow it up. This can be given to individuals only or to the whole room like Mafia Works in GTA IV.

 

 

* Bounty Hunter - Similar to Hitman except you don't kill the target. Instead you must catch him/her then transport them back to a specific location. If they're on foot you must knock them down then point your gun at them to make them surrender and get in your vehicle. If they're in a car you must make them wreck or yank them out then point your gun at them to make them get in your vehicle (would be cool if we could tie them up and put them in the trunk). :devil: Anyway, take the person to the drop spot and you get paid.

 

 

* Fireman Missions - Get in a firetruck and answer calls to put out fires. Faster you do it more $ and RP.

 

 

* Paramedic Missions - Get in an ambulance and answering calls to help random peds. Faster you do it more $ and RP.

 

 

* Fight Club - They would of course have to update the mele system for this to be a viable minigame. More on that here. Basically this could be like GTA4 where there was a designated place to go fight or it could be random places on the map.

 

 

* Foot Racing - This entails triathalons (bikes>swimming>running) and canon ball (go from checkpoint to checkpoint by any means) run type races. Hell they could even make some of these races go underwater such as having a checkpoint in an underwater wreckage.

 

 

* Random events like SP - The ones where the little blip randomly shows up on the map and you can intervene like helping a women get her purse back, helping either the police or the criminals in a shootout, etc.

 

 

* More minigames - Things like pool, dominoes and cards (poker, spades, etc) which could be played at a gambling shack or better yet at your apartment (these minigames should be bought tho via apartment customization, link below for more details on this).

 

 

Besides gameplay how about extra features like...

 

* Apartment customization - http://gtaforums.com/topic/632925-what-about-apartment-customization/

 

 

* Owning Businesses - Just like single player you buy a business and get a set amount deposited in your account at the end of every GTA day. Things that come with the business are security and other random missions. Security as in guarding your store from being robbed or escorting or taking your daily earnings to the bank safely. The way this will work is when in route its just like the armor trucks except the truck icon would be different to differintiate them from armored trucks. Anyway, the objective is to just make it to the bank before someone robs you. If you are the robber then once you steal the money you cannot deposit it into your bank account thru the phone or ATM. You must take it back to your safehouse to claim it. If you were the one robbed and the $$$ was successfully taken to their safehouse then the $$$ will be deducted from your bank account.

 

Missions would be things like the manager calling you and telling you that they ran out or are low on supplies. You must then go get a van from your business, go to a warehouse to get your supplies then take it back to the store. Once you get your supplies from the warehouse tho once again a truck icon will show up on the map. The objective is to make it back to your business before someone steals or destroys it. If someone steals or destroys your truck you lose $$$ from your account. If you are the one stealing the truck you must take it to someone who will buy the contents like Simeon's does the imports.

 

The only problem I see with this is conflicting ownership as far as the businesses. What I mean is if multiple ppl who own that business are in the same session. My suggestion is if you are the only person in the session who owns that business then you are the sole owner and get the full revenue and responsibilities but if multiple ppl in the session also own the business then you all become co-owners and must share the revenue/responsibilities.

 

 

Prison instead of Bad Sport - Basically you go to the prison instead of bad sport only sessions. Here is more on this. http://gtaforums.com/topic/630004-prison-instead-of-bad-sport-lobbies/

 

 

Updated mele system - http://gtaforums.com/topic/631153-they-ruined-the-mele-combat/

 

 

Change Getting busted - http://gtaforums.com/topic/653428-r-should-add-getting-busted-and-fix-respawning/

 

 

 

and there are a lot more ideas I didn't mention but I cant find the thread that listed them all. These are just the 1st things I can remember. I feel they missed the boat with this update. They couldve done so much better with the debute of free roam activities. At least they could've given us ONE of the main requested ideas like drug dealing or freeroam bank robberies. Was so hyped when I heard the news about the update then played the game and was let down. I expected things more on the lines of the theme of the game. Wtf does Teenwolf have to do with GTA? Seems like they lost their way a bit. Thoughts?

 

EDIT: Here is a thread with community ideas I was trying to remember http://gtaforums.com/topic/619432-suggestions-to-improve-freemode/

OP: Argh! Why aren't you working for R*? You NEED to be working for them (and those who gave their suggestions too). Would be one of the best things to happen to GTA Online.

 

Seriously.

 

Random thoughts: The stun gun (would be perfect for the cops to use in Rescue Mission or other players in Bounty Hunter), like night vision goggles and the rebreather, are hauntingly underused in this game. That needs to change! The prison, casino, etc... *sigh* so much could be easily done. But no...

I don't care what you asked for and didn't get. It's another FREE update and you cry like a baby. Quite frankly a lot of the ideas you posted are dumb and wouldn't work anyway. R just keep the updates rolling in, keep them free and keep ignoring childish requests that don't add to the game.

Well, now that they've stopped working with last-generation consoles, I really hope they can do some bright updates that I could enjoy when I get a PS4.

why bother no one isn't going to play with them. the worst thing r* did was allow guns in freeroam. they should of kept guns in pvp or missions only.

 

average gta player thinks this "why should I do this mode to kill people when I just grab my kurma or Hydra and kill everyone.

Rockstar will come out with the usual bundle of bug fixes, hopefully some resolutions to networking issues, which is all good.

 

Let's see what they have to offer...

Yep, the forthcoming update does not look like it will ease my boredom in GTA. Still no SP DLC, no new contact missions, nothing about fixing the lag and endless connection error messages, nothing like crew turf wars etc etc. But hey, we can fight in free-mode now. Don't think anyone's done that before......oh wait.

 

Heck, I'd gladly pay for a proper DLC rather than get "free" updates which give us a couple cars and a gun to hide a ton of patches.

Whats the point of a free update if it doesnt bring interesting things.I would rather pay for a DLC that comes along with cool new stuff(for example GTA 4 EFLC)

Man all you guys do is complain,

 

What other company has given out FREE updates for two years now and continues to support their game.

 

You need to play San Andreas/GTA IV.

 

This is GTA V, and this update is very fitting for the new GTA style.

Remember that they tried to get this stuff on the 360/PS3 for the majority of the time, so hopefully future freeroam updates will include more imaginative stuff.

In SWAT 4, A tactical FPS, you got 1 point for killing an enemy or 5 for arresting them. To arrest them, you shot them with a tazer that immobilized them for 10-15 seconds and in that time you ran up and held a certain button for a few seconds which applied a pair of zip tie handcuffs. You had to hold the button until the whole arrest process finished or start over. If you didn't get the cuffs on before the tazer wore off, the person would be able to get away/defend themselves.

People are not complaining as such, but most of us have played the game to death, that's all, and just wish our favourite game would develop at the same ravenous level as our appetites.

Its R fault if they have chosen"the free updates"policy.Nobody forced them to do so, but at least they should add interesting things instead of sh*t that waste my hard disk space and add new issues instead of removing them

Holy sh*t dude, people are seriously expecting too God Damn much. -_-

 

Just because R* doesn't add every single f*cking thing in the world doesn't mean that they don't listen. They obviously do listen to us when they've added

 

* multiple properties,

* the Dukes, the Dodo, the Stallion,

* the ability to re-arange your garage,

* the ability to remove/add vehicle roofs from LSC,

* First person view

 

Maybe if you had more reasoning expectations instead of the f*cking outrageously high standard's you expect R* to live up to, you would've realised that they DO indeed listen.

 

and TBH, this stuff really should be in the Concept thread...

Hate to burst your bubble, but if you took the time to read through the OP's suggestions (and others like him), you wouldn't be saying that.

 

They've already done a boatload of R*'s work for them, thinking through the whole process; and much of it can be done with existing code.

 

The only thing the OP missed is that, in the IGN interview with one of the R* devs, it was revealed that apartment customization is indeed coming to GTA Online:

 

"We know that players are looking for some fun customization options around their personal apartments and we have a few ideas that we're currently working on for future updates."

All of the gameplay suggestions mentioned are EASILY possible bcuz the mechanics required are already in the game. Not sure how you see these things as taking extreme amounts of time and effort. Please explain.

Yes we shall gladly eat up the "Stuff No One Asked For" Update that is just a bunch of rehashed, pre-existing game mechanics with a new coat of paint, all the while patching police uniforms, patching bugs that lets you wear a hood without a mask and avoiding to patch god mode glitches and "unable to connect to session" bugs.

It seems you forgot about hackers still running rampant in GTA Online, which is why R* does a poor job at dealing with them. Updates don't matter; dealing with hackers and cheaters that ruin GTA Online experience do.

it would be different if gta was a sub based mmo. why? because people are paying for a service and what happens when the services isn't exactly doing what it should....pr nightmare. we don't have a say because it's free but if it was paid then yes.
