Gas?

Recommended Posts

DJCHRISRECTOR

I've always thought this would be interesting and want to know what you think.

What do you think about the idea of Gas in GTA6?

The map will be massive so having to fill up your car isn't a totally out there idea.

This could play into missions too.

 

Crazy idea?

 

Well in GTA5, Rockstar leened away from "Grand Theft Auto" and focused on vehicle ownership with buying vehicles and insurance companies.

 

So is Gas that crazy?

 

 

Your thoughts?

I have thought of this forever too. I think it would be fun.

Hella funny if your car break down while chasing or something.

Imagine running out of gas while you're in the middle of the GTA equivalent to the Everglades.

 

I'm all in for that, honestly. As long as gas is free. In GTAO we'd be paying 50$ a litre.

It's not a bad idea in general but I don't think it goes well with a GTA game.

It's only fun if you play the game in a specific way, aka the game has to be made around it entirely. I don't think it works well with GTA my self unless they made gas usage so light it becomes trivial and pointless anyway.

It shouldn't be free. We always had a lot of money in GTA and nothing to spend it on.

Not in GTA V. The fact that you could buy vehicles was a nice money consuming thing not to mention the car tuning. I hope they keep that so our wallet can stay busy. Also if they bring real life gas prices you wouldn't really feel it considering you make millions in GTA games so I am with the idea of it not being free.

I think it's an excellent idea putting the focus on "Grand Theft Auto" and taking care of our vehicles just like we do with our horses in RDR2.

I'd definitely enjoy it, but can understand it wouldn't be a feature all would.

Very, very different situations tbf. In RDR2 Rockstar put heavy emphasis on your horse and turned it into a character, most people only used a select few horses in their single player playthroughs and even in RDO a lot of people don't have 5+ horses going by achievement data. They are way more personal than a vehicle in GTA, where vehicles there have always been more tools that are easily disposable.

 

I'm all for making travelling more meaningful and not being able to get from anywhere on the map to anywhere in a hot minute however there are probably better ways to do that than gas in GTA. I think a more sim-like approach to vehicle damage would be more interesting gameplay wise, having the potential for certain aspects of a vehicle to have issues, drivetrain, clutch, steering, that type of thing. You f*ck up your car enough and you car can't get out of third gear or something, or your AWD vehicle loses drive in one of the sets of wheels, stuff like that. Punishes you for being reckless with your vehicle but the result is more interesting gameplay wise, cause gas is literally: "Oh I'm low on gas, time to go refuel / steal a car". Interesting at first, repetitive and annoying after a few days.

NO!

 

I'd rather just have an animation of our protagonist pouring gas into their car but that's it for immersion purposes only. No actual gas that would get annoying very quickly. I would however like to make our own molotov cocktails like in CTW.

Say most Full tanks could last a in game week, (24min*7) about 3hs

 

But if you steal a car, it probably won't have a full tank of gas

 

Normal playing, gas isn't really a big deal, rotating through your cars, you could go a real time week without filling up.

 

But with missions, and stealing cars. The possibilities are endless

I personally like the idea, i think it would add to the game. If i imagine being in the middle of a chase with full stars after a heist or robbing something and the car starts spluttering and runs out of gas that would be a rush for me but thats just my opinion. Im sure there would be times where it would be annoying but i still think it could be a fun thing. Maybe they could have an option to turn it on/off to suit your preference.

I have mixed feelings on this.

 

On one hand I think it would be great for strategy and tense situations like you jack a car in the middle of a cop chase and get one that's low on fuel you'd have to scramble to find a new one, but on the other I could only see something like this being included if R* assumes we're going to be spending considerable amounts of time driving one vehicle since it's basically like taking care of your horse in RDR2. Unlike that though I doubt anyone spends that much time just driving one car around since they're so easy to lose/get destroyed.

 

I feel something like this might get too annoying if it's overly intrusive or may just end up feeling pointless/barely noticeable since the majority of the time we're driving different cars and whatnot anyway

I think this will get tedious after a while. It might be immersive at first but it will ultimately serve no purpose and get boring. I would love to see gas stations to have loads of vehicles go in and out with proper animations. That would add to the world.

I remember that long time ago I had a modded version of GTA San Andreas for PS2 that you actually had to put gas on your car, it was very nice haha but honestly I don't think Rockstar would put this feature in GTA 6... Who knows, anything is possible :)

Think about this... I think it would be great to have the gas canister as an item you could set things on fire like in V, but also use to fill up your tank if you ran out of petrol. Just imagine running drugs off the coast of the Gator Keys end up taking a detour only to find out that you took the long route, And guess what.. It s close to E, you quickly think f*ck.. my rivals could be nearby waiting to make a move on my shipment, rip me off, kill me and take my shipment. Not only that but theres DOA patrol in conjuncture with the coast guard. The intensifies the situation at hand, so you have plan a quick route and so on. 

 

I think its great for immersion, of course it doesn't have to be mandatory, how about an option to have that petrol on or off kinda like Mafia 2.

Well this is something I believe fans pointed out since GTA III (don't know about before that however) and we haven't seen it implemented. I think it's with a good reason because it adds micromanagement which isn't really fun. Running out of gas, getting gas is enough of a hassle in real life.

 

Don't need to jack a Banshee or Infernus just to see it running low on gas lmao. Although if you prefer the mehanic I think every GTA has a Gas mod for it, so there's that

I don't know if you played Mafia, but if you did: how many times in the whole of the game have you had to fill up your car? I did it once, and I think this was because the mission required it. All other times I did it for fun, because you never drive a car long enough for the petrol to run out.

Played the series a little bit, Mafia I mean.

 

OT: If you never run out of it because as you say you never drive the car long enough, then what's the point? Also take in consideration that Mafia has only cars as vehicles, while GTA has boats, bikes, planes, helicopters, trucks, tanks, etc. Either have a system that engages this activity regularly or don't have it.

 

If the gas runs too slow then you have no purpose for it, if it runs too fast then it's annoying. Should cars have different tanks? Stolen cars have defined amount of gas already or random? If defined then why is it defined if they're trying to make a more realistic aproach with adding the gas system. If random am I at a 6 stars wanted level stealing a car that I find out can't make it a mile and I get WASTED?

 

Also why stop at cars, what about tanks and airplanes that are gas guzzlers? Sure as hell don't want a situation where I'm not stopped by hordes of enemies with rpg's, but because I ran out of gas. However I look at the design it's not really fun and it feels like a chore to me as a player. I don't have mind anyone wanting it, I just don't see what the fuss is all about

Go play Days Gone or Mafia 2 instead

 

Highly Realistic Gameplay was never intended for GTA

Making molotovs with gasoline was one of best features of Chinatown Wars, the same could happen here. Remove all pickups of molotov of the map, don't make it buyable anywhere. You drink a soda or a beer and after the bottle is empty, you can take it to gas stations to make molotovs, or you can also collect empty bottles from the ground, like in The Warriors. 

 

Overall, I think Rockstar should stop making features exclusive to 1 game, specially when the feature is cool, like molotovs and the drug system from CW and the Empire Business from VCS.

It could be really cool. I'm hoping that your Personal Vehicle will have more uses in GTA VI. You'd be able to have spare gas tanks in your trunk. You'd also be able to store weapons, ammo and consumables in your car.

I'm mostly against the idea but I can adapt to it if it makes its way into the series. I'd be interested to know how this would work for boats and aircraft though, you can't just pull up to a gas station in one of those. lol Maybe GTA doesn't have fuel for this reason.

The average car can drive hundreds of miles with one fuel, how large is the GTA map and how long do you drive one and the same car - it's totally pointless, rather let the engine break by chance, it should not happen too often though.

 

If they add electric cars, you should be forced to charge them quite a lot (but it should be really quick, not hours like in real life), just to ridicule electric cars, I hate electric cars.

It would only be interesting as an option which would bring an achievement when you complete a certain mission.

This would be a bad design choice, if it happened, I would just exit the car and jack another, and what if I ran out of it and the middle of f*cking nowhere(woods or swamps)? I would have no other choice than to kill myself ingame so that I can spawn to the nearest hospital, and the result will be me losing 10000 dollars because of the horrendous design choice.
