"Cayo Perico" - Island Loading

Island Loading  

278 members have voted

  1. 1. How do you think the Island will load up?

    • Loads up the same time as GTAV and is accessible in Freemode.
      106
    • Requires a loading screen such as a black screen or clouds.
      155
    • Sommin' else.

I posted this poll on Twitter, figured I'd post it here too.

 

Basically, how do you think "The Island" will load? Already loaded, progressively loads as we travel around it or simply a black screen or clouds then we spawn there? Perhaps even an aerial cutscene of some sort? Who knows!

I'm sure they thought about what would happen in players turnt the island into a death island. Hope the respawns are decent to not get you camped

Worst case: It spawns into life like the aircraft carrier for specific missions / heists only. At all other times it's just an empty shell, and if you try to get anywhere near it you just blackscreen back to the mainland.

 

Best case: It's an extension to the main map and is totally freeroam, even for tunnels, caves and bunkers (if there are any) unlike those under Mt. Chillad for example. 

 

Most likely case: It is freeroam but only accessible through staging points on the main map, for example the casino or LSIA. Maybe some buy-in is required before you can get access. Some features of the island will probably be off limits except for heists.

I want it to be permanent in free roam, but that would be too cool. I really want several islands so it spreads the players out. The carrier is not permanent because players would be there non-stop and they wanted to flush them out after the business battle. Can't be too hard to cut and paste some islands and then modify them enough so they are unique.

Posted my tweet comment 😊:

 

maybe its permanent free roam (imo) that's why the map is small to keep performance up on ps4/xbox1 consoles and if that is true (and I'm just thinking here) maybe we will see more, bigger map expansion on ps5/new xbox update next year. That's my theory 😊

I believe it'll load up in freeroam and we can just fly/sail over. :)

Maybe it will be a weapon-free zone, like the casino in everyday mode. But for that to be successful there would have to be something fundamentally entertaining to do on this apparently small island, otherwise it would get visited once or twice by the average player in freeroam and then never again except on a heist. 

 

I said this in another thread but I think it's worth bearing in mind, if only to be mindlessly optimistic: We don't know for sure that this is the only new island. We have no evidence that there are others of course, but we can't rule it out just yet. It would be very Rockstar for Rockstar to tease just this island, if they also had other plans up their sleeve for next month.

If North Yankton was possible in Ps3 online (via a glitch) then surely this can be in freeroam aswell

I figure it's accessible. Interesting to see if PS4/XOX can run the sessions without any issues. Obvious airport and all that. 

 

Course by launch day, it's swarming with dots and Oppressor symbols...

Black screen loading for current gen consoles, permanent map addition for next gen.

Probably need to go somewhere to reach it, like that new area of the casino. Then have a loading screen.

 

I really hope it isn't just for a heist/mission. I want to stay there for some time, even if it's small.

The island must be loaded for the Heist, it looks too small to be a playground for an entire session.

(Unless there are several islands and not just that one) 🤔

What if you have to buy it and there is a discount if you complete the Heist 😆💸💸

I think it will appear in free roam but as a low quality generic shape until you start getting closer to it, then the higher quality model will phase in while the mainland will switch to its low quality model.

Most likely: some kind of load-in, either like loading into a mission (i.e. clouds) or like the fade-to-black transition in/out of North Yankton in "Bury the Hatchet" (albeit with a much longer loading time).

 

Perverse, but not out of the question: you load into it like a contact mission, and the island is inaccessible the rest of the time. :p

 

...maybe: you do something like go to the airport (or select "go to _____" from the start menu), but with the option to load into the island instead of the main map - bit like how Forza Horizon handles DLC maps.

 

Doubt it: the map is just added to GTAO Freemode, and you can travel to it simply by riding a boat or plane out to it.

I hope for a seamless transition, a segment where we're on the middle of the ocean; just the deep blue sea while the map loads.
... And we should only go by sea: the island has aerial countermeasures just like the USS Luxington. It's a no-fly area.
So no Oppressors, Hydras, Lazers or Akulas (I hope so), just on-foot shootouts and terrestrial vehicle combat.

It would be more fun to be seamless, but I don't think it will be. If it's a different country it would be silly if it was visible from the beach on clear days. So it would have to be placed pretty far ... which means like 5 minutes of sailing/flying whenever you want to go. I'd rather have a 10 second loading screen if I'm going often lol.

I'm guessing you can buy a ticket at LSIA & spawn at that airfield? Then you can call Pegasus normally to get your boats/planes?

That defeats the purpose of the island having a landing strip though.

You're right! It will be limited to civilian planes only, I guess.

That's why the yacht it's so important: it's the only weaponized large ship, so we can 'infiltrate' the island with our 'harmless' yacht as a snob friend of the local warlord.

... maybe the new Heist Room it's in the yacht!

It'll be restricted to a string of missions, similar to Guarma, and exclusive to those with access to the standalone version of GTA Online on PS5 or Xbox Series S/X.

Hopefully Rockstar makes this new island accessible for explore in singleplayer story mode as well.

I could live with that, as long as I can pilot one of my private jets there.

I sure hope it's added into the same session as the current map, and fully accessible in freemode.  

 

I mean, can it even be called a map expansion if it's not actually an expansion of the current map?  lol

I don't think it'll be in freeroam, sadly. Probably will be mission-locked. 

But, if I'm wrong (which I hope I am!) then it'll be interesting to see how respawning works if your character gets killed in the ocean - where would the threshold bounding be between respawns on the LS landmass, or respawning on the new island? 

Also... Johnny On The Spot and Pegasus (and other other interaction menu spawns) - can vehicles appear out of nowhere on the new island? 

 

Time will tell...

No, no it can't

 

Rockstar would really be taking the piss if you cant freeroam there

 

Like everybody expected a map expansion, not another closed off mission only area

I'm sure it will f*ck up the framerate on Xbone even more if it's freeroam (in public sessions lol) but I'm almost certain there will be some kind of entry fee and I don't really know how they would do that.

Maybe they'll just lock off events/properties on the island until you completed the heist as a leader
