Ok, so with the recent release of the "Executives and other Criminals" update, we also received the opportunity to purchase a 5th property.. Meaning that, (presuming you did'nt go for the Yacht) we now have the ability to effectively store up to 50 cars in our various properties! Which on the one hand is awesome (how can more cars not be), but on the other hand, is becoming a bit ridiculous at this point...

With our cars spread across the map, is there anyone else out there that longs for a Jay Leno style or other car showroom? Somewhere where (in theory) you could not just store, but proudly display 15, 20, 30+ cars in one location?... Bringing it a step further, imagine if they made them similar to the penthouse apartments, where one could choose from a variety of garage interior themes (gritty hotrod shop, ultra modern, race inspired ect) to reflect the personality of the types of cars they were storing!

We already know (via FMW2 and others) that alternative garage designs have been added to the game coding as far back as the High Life Update, (spoiler images below courtesy of Nkjellman).

The file location is: Grand Theft Auto V\x64w\dlcpacks\mpbusness2\dlc.rpf\x64\levels\gta5\interiors\int_mp_gar_h_01.rpf

So my question to you is this; If R* were to give us the ability to buy and theme a larger car show room, how much would that be worth to you? and what kind of garage theme's do you think your cars would fit best in?

I would personally love an option to customise the garages. Even if we kept the current 2/6/10 layout, I just HATE the ultra clean 10 car garage, I prefer the look of the 6 car garage but it's a tad too small.

Yeah I love the design of the 6 car as well... It's just gotten to the point where we have so many cars on tap, we (or at least I) could have a large garage solely dedicated to each genre! Would be really cool to have some theme options for your 10+ car garages.

What is this, the sims?

Take your campy-ass designer dreams elsewhere!

No, but seriously.

This game needs more customization options.

And I mean, really. It's ripe with possibilities that keep getting ignored!

If anything, we're long overdue for some fancy-looking garage upgrades. This game used to be all about the cars, you know?

The idea of warehouses has been around since the 3rd garage option got added in (or was it the 4th addition? It's been so long I forgot which limit it originally was) yet it's still something R* ignore. They've redone the outside of Benny's shop and made it amazing interior wise, why not offer us the ability to buy warehouses around the map? There's a bunch! I personally would like a dusty, dim-lighted one as I'm not too fond of the white on white, sleek floor one we get for a 10-car garage (never liked it). What I want more than a warehouse is the ability to customize your cars extensively as well as doing it yourself. You could upgrade your handy man/mechanic skills and that unlocks more options. You can up your skill of mechanic by working on your car or taking lessons (like flight school). Eeeeeh....but simulator is going too far. I'll just leave this here:

Street Legal. Most amazing game ever for car enthusiasts. Just imagine it in GTA:O...

Something like one of those two is what I want:

A dusty/industrial warehouse (this one is way too dusty, though, and too bright):

Or a clean, racing tribute like one:

As would I... Especially if I could customize it!

The price woud depend on the amount of cars i can store.

If i coud have 5 50 car garages i gladly pay 5 mil for each garage

Dont care much about a sertain style

I just woud like to see the cars then sitting in 5 rows of 10...enough place between each car like is the case with the current garages and preferably an inviroment that looks simple...just like a regular hangar so it does not distract from the cars themselves

Also there shoud be enough light to see them perfectly from every angle without shadows

I love that last picture but i woud like to see more space between cars if something like that woud be implemented

Id love to have a barn out in the country, keep the inside fairly dirty, worn and tired. I am not a fan of the super clean 10 car garages that we have at the moment

Share on other sites

Personally, I've always longed for a big garage with minimalist architecure. Holding about 20-30 cars and with styling similar to a fancy penthouse. Or I dunno, some sh*t. Not that crappy ass white pos they keep feeding us. I am so tired of that sh*t.

Too much back end coding changes. You'll never get it in a GTA V based game.

You can hold out for GTA VI, but I suspect that if they go tabula rasa on the GTAO universe for 6th gen, they'll start with 1 garage and slowly hand them out over the next 2 years just like this version.

Dont care about warehouses and all that, even though it would be nice, but omg I want garage interior choices soo bad.

That looks like the inside of a fleshlight if it was designed by car guys.

I'm not quite sure if that would very pleasurable or very painful.

Na, because if we had this ^ it would totally defeat the purpose of proudly displaying them for your enjoyment!

Yeah I remember people saying that when I made a thread about customizing apartments two years ago... and yet again the same thing, when I made a concept thread about the potential of a yacht being a personal property... Truth is, R* is looking for ways to maintain their customer base for GTAO, at this point in the game's existence, the only things that are going to inspire people to come back are big DLC's. We already know they watch this site regularly for idea's... So why not give them some!

I need five 20 car garages. I'm running out of room with all these custom NPC vehicles and worn/rare paint ones!

Share on other sites

All I ask for is to drive my own car in my own garage, Without any cut scenes. but that is never going to happen.
We are able to customize our apartments, so they might as well let us customize our garages too

Well said btw

Because those were logical development leaps, 20 car garages are not.

The "customized apartment" turned out to be no different than a regular apartment. It's got a couple different skins. Period. No different than any other. It simply represents time spent by someone who makes the models to make 6 or 8 or 10 (whatever there are) new ones, and bam, "customized apartments!"

That yacht is similar, but different. The difference between the yacht and a 20 car department is the yacht was a "new" feature built onto the existing structure that exists. It's not really as complicated as you make it, again, it's basically a new apartment.

So, why's >10 car garages not going to happen? Because it's built into the underlying architecture of the game. The core design says "10 cars." At best they can give you multiples of 10 cars, ie 2x10 car garages (which they've done) because addition of properties to a PC was built into the game, but the actual limit of the vehicles within each garage is 10.

If you hold out for "customized garages," or even "alternate designs of 10 car garages" (ie the cut garage shape from Highlife), well, you've got a chance. That's just modelling it together. But to give you a 20 car single unit garage space requires too much work, and will not happen in a GTA V based game.

50 cars in one scene? Yeah, say good bye to your frame rate. They won't do it because consoles would choke on the rendering demands.

It's not exactly game breaking though. You can still have a 20/30/10billion car garage using the existing garage layouts. Walk to the door / elevator and go to floor 2/3/4 whatever. Elevator goes down, door opens and you are in garage section 2.
