Island Loading

  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.

You have to buy a submarine, but you cannot drive it.

 

Each island (there are perhaps 12) has multiple sub spots, reusing the yacht code

 

You cannot buy anything on the islands

 

Each island is a seperate load, dressed up as a sub voyage.

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.

 

/pessimism

That's what I fear as well. The island content will be a bait for transition to standalone GTAO and it's gonna be a instance dungeon.

Edit; And a place for adversary modes.

My bet it will require a loading.

Whenever, in modded SP, i spawned Online interiors, i had to wait for a short loading, since it prepared Online assets which obviously never load during singleplayer sessions.

I think we will see "fog clearing" when sailing out, however based on the wording "infilitrate" im guessing we get attacked on site by just going there.

 

In the trailer we cant see Los Santos in the bg at all.

Not sure about this one, but I do believe Jets and Oppressors won't be able to get there and start tearing things up.

Yeah, I think they'll give a excuse like "yeah the island is really far away, like reaally far away.

So you would have to actually take a trip to the island, which would be the loading.

 

However, I don't think the island will be acessible only to those who bought the submarine. Maybe you could book a flight to the island? Idk

Lot's of questions

Then don't play. Plan and simple! You guys were begging for a map expansion and you're finally getting it and you're just picking it apart!

I think I might be 3ish out of 4 with this. I hope we can roam freely.

A map expansion that is locked to only a handful of game modes ain't worth for sh*t in a open world game map.

With the Way R*/T2 is nowadays they wont just build a huge island for one heist. I bet like casino (Gambling making them money) and doomsday apparently being a repurposed singleplayer DLC there is something really expensive In this place we can do or buy here for outside the heist.

Freeroam looks like least amount of work.

You don't understand my strategy. I rather be wrong with my pessimistic prognosis than have my hopes crushed.

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

Well there is no casino in SP so probably not.

But the Casino is said to be build after Singleplayer. This Island hasn't just recently been 'build'. Doesn't mean I think It'll be in SP though. 😄

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

Coding doesn't really work this way though, it's either one thing or the other for both platforms since it saves time on many things.

You guys are over analyzing this, looking for things to be disappointed about. Just wait for them to release it!

But Online is being reworked from the ground up on it's standalone version for the next gen consoles, isn't?

Is this the return of the "Vice City bridge crossing" loading screens?  :lol: :lol:

At least on old gen, current gen and pc won't have a problem to deal with those.

It might be just me but it feels like we won't be able to bring all our toys with us into this island, and I'm perfectly fine with a no-opressor allowed place.

It will be a different location and will load just like going to our Bunkers and what not.

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

My thoughts also but I think it won't happen before the ps5/pc/eggbox version, current version we might be able to but I don't think so

this is differnent.

bc the short loading you have is bc SP and Online are technically on 2 seperate maps.

and it´s not there in SP bc they always add it to the Online version of the map.

 

once you have the online map loaded, you should be able to teleport instantly into a interior.

this is what will happen

 

you cannot access it in freemode you can only access it through a loading screen

 

once you complete the heist and kill the drug lord you can now own the island and travel to it anytime and invite people

 

it will be a police free paradise

Guys...It's a PRIVATE island, isn't it?

 

Because I'm starting to believe that we are going to OWN all of the island after completing the heist.

 

Like, actually all of the island will turn into a property that you access by walking into a corona and warping into the interior, like our safehouse, nightclubs, Penthouse...Only actual difference is that you can also access it by flying towards it, going south of the LS airport.

 

It won't be a place you can freely roam around like in free roam even if a loading screen is there...But you can invite other players to your island and access their islands via invite as well.

 

Dear God,  I hope I'm wrong...

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.

I always thought a chain of smallish islands to the north of the map would have balanced out the city heavy player base! Throw in a oil rig or two!

Definitely behind a loading screen. That's the only way to gate the access and force the player through introductary content beforehand. I suspect this will be the submarine's purpose.

 

Unfortunately, I don't expect the island to be a full free-roam experience. It will undoubtedly be a fresh and condensed heist experience, however.

 

But as far as free roam goes, we have to keep in mind that we have 7 years worth of content on the core island. The gameplay loop is entirely built on the premise of using San Andreas. Rockstar probably doesn't want to move players too much from that. Free roaming this new island would split the playerbase and move players away from the main content. Plus, as it stands it'll probably be a simple new environment used for a Heist and designed as such. Just like teleporting with a hack to Guarma outside its mission in RDR2, it could very well feel empty and void of purpose.

 

This is a free DLC. To give depth to free roam on it, they would need to add tons of features in addition to the Heist. Actual new indoor shops for ammos and clothings, collectibles, public events, maybe businesses even, so it can co-exist with San Andreas with a purpose beyond the Heist.

 

Plus, there's the vague wording from Rockstar: "heist location", "infiltrate private island"... It heavily implies a very restrictive experience.

 

Still, the player in me wishes it'll be explorable nonetheless, even if it's just for the sake of exploring without all the fluffs. A new environment is always refreshing. But I won't be surprised if we can't. At least we're getting social spaces, whatever they are (likely the beach clubs teased in the trailer).
