I want to be able to buy a car in RDR Online. I know that may upset you.

Hear me out, imagine this. You've been a mountain man, you've explored every area, you've killed every beast. Finally, you are considered "rich" in the world. Would it not be nice to settle down in St.Denis, living in a classy hotel where the drinks keep flowing and the ladies never reject you, and because of your high status as a nobleman, you need something besides horseback for a change. Imagine the look on the lowly depth grovellers faces when you ride past at 11mph in a beautiful period specific automobile? It's slow, it can't jump, it has no weapons, it's just a status symbol to get around the city. Useless in the wilderness, I have pitched this idea many a time before but never heard tell a single member of the forum agreeing that it would be cool. I want a car in Red Dead Online, I want to be a Louisiana dandy named Gilbert (Jill-berr) and this is the only way that is possible. Thoughts?

I'd rather have early Indians, Triumphs & Harleys.

I like the idea, I think the problem would be once everyone has one the traffic jams will be a nightmare.

i came into the thread to tell you it's a bad idea but after reading your post i changed my mind.

 

As long as it's a more useless, status kind of thing, i wouldn't mind that.

...I mean, yeah, it'd probably be useless outside of Saint Denis, but it'd be nice for cruising around in style (although streetcars are already a thing for that, at least):

Come to think of it, while player-owned horses are obviously a thing for RDO, what about carriages and buggies? Maybe I've been playing too much Assassins' Creed Syndicate lately, but being able to transport people and goods in some kind of carriage would be cool - particularly if we could also park them at camp, and use them for storage (maybe put a bed in a wagon, for example). Stuff that'd blur the line between 'transportation' and 'accomodation', as well as functioning like a portable extension of our campsites when venturing out from them.

i agree. i would love to own a car in red dead. and i think they might do it. because as we all know rockstar loves to add stuff and make stuff expensive for the cash cards. i could totally see them doing it. it might not be there right away. but they might add it for dlc. because we know that they have only a limited amount of things for a dlc. since its in a specific time in history. not the growing modern day. so i think they would eventually add one.

I can already see Rockstar adding weaponized Model T's and other period troll vehicles.

As long as it's not stupid weaponized crap then yeah, cars would be cool. Early motorcycles would be even cooler. But I wouldn't want to see either of these things for at least twelve months.

Next thing you know, R* will be introducing faster cars with mounted gattling guns and a hot air balloon on the deluxe version.

You make it sound so romantic. 

 

So long as horses are key/more common and it doesn't go to Deluxo depths, sounds like it could be nice to have.

 

I'd be very cautious to begin with though of where it goes beyond, GTA:O has a habit of 'topping' the last best thing too.

Given there’s concept cars in gta it stands to reason there could be early experimental automobiles in red dead but they were in the very early stages in 1899.

 

maybe penny farthing races for mirror park fans?

It would be very cool, there were quite a few one off cars already created by 1899 in the United States, just no mass produced ones yet. It's something I do think has a very high chance of happening, even customization too.

I’ve actually been reading up and there’s quite a lot of stuff...it makes you gasp at how quickly cars evolved from nothing into cars...by the 20s they had advanced so much.

Of course, the horseless carriage was alive and well by 1899. Electric, steam, and gasoline were all well on the way to replace the horse in propulsion for personal transport. They typically weren't fast or long-range, but they did serve in many cities around America and Europe as taxis, and the rich did buy their own as a sort-of status symbol. A quick search does bring up this interesting example from 1899, with its top speed of 62 MPH, and this weaponized armoured car from 1901, though again, both were rather impractical outside of short usage.

 

I do imagine Rockstar would prefer to keep RDO away from being the same kind of mindless, modern action film vibe of GTA. And I'm doubtful they'll want motorized carriages humming or chuffing or spluttering around their wild west diorama, but I can see it happening. I'd be happy to find myself in a motor car, even if I were super slow and couldn't use guns.

HOW'S ANNIE?

If it's ok to want a car in Red Dead is it ok for me to say I want a plane more than anything else? Not anything weaponised or too anachronistic/technologically advanced. Something like the Wright Brothers Kitty Hawk or a George Cayley style glider would do me just fine.

GTA 5 has already taken the same turn as Saints Row with the stupidity, I hope rockstar doesn’t do the same with this game.

Steamboat with a hot tub. Lol

 

But seriously, if a certain type of car existed at the time, I'm all for it. However you would be at a disadvantage to horses. A hot air balloon would also be sweet.

 

Sadly Rockstar will probably have the mythical horses from RDR Undead Nightmare at some point.

As long as they don’t start flying 

 

 

 

A zeppelin could work in that case

Understandably people don't like the idea of adding the cars, because it may ruin their immersive wild west experience, but of course I'm not gonna say no to cars. Also this game is apparently set in the end of the wild west era, so who said the online mode should be that stereotypical spaghetti western experience? If this was 2013, I would say they're not gonna add cars, but it's 2018 and Los Santos is filled with flying rocket bikes, so... I actually think those zeppelins and hot air balloons are more probable, people wanna get around fast.

Bicycles? You use the bike to get around the town and when the terrain gets rough, you hop on the horse?
