    Since I left Rockstar North in May last year I've been learning how to develop games for iOS using SpriteKit. I spent the first 3 months or so going through tutorials and a book which I bought and since then I've been working completely on my own game. I've built the whole thing from scratch, from the game engine to the mission script, animations etc. DuPz0r and DiO have done a brilliant job as my graphic designers and we're continuing to make good progress. Ideally I wanted the game finished within 6 months but it's a pretty huge job, especially for 1 developer and 2 part time designers so it's going to take maybe another 6 months but it's coming along well. I've amazed myself by just how much work goes into a game, even something as 'small' as this. I've been keeping a design doc up to date as we go and its coming on for 40 pages so far which gives you some idea of what's involved. It's not your traditional iPhone game (i.e. small levels, pick up and play, good for 2 minutes when you're on the toilet etc). It's a full - almost GameBoy style - platformer RPG. It features a turn based battle system similar to something you'd see in Pokemon and will feature a number of puzzles in each area as well as some hopefully fun mini-games. I'm hoping to have the full story take around 10-20 hours to complete (including all of the battles you'll have to do), which isn't bad for an iPhone game. If it's successful I'd like to re-develop it and release it on PS Vita or maybe the consoles as an indie game. Anyhow, it's yet another zombie apocalypse game. The basic story is that a Scientist wants you to help him find a cure by going out and getting samples from all of the different zombie forms. You'll have to battle them and kill them, then you can search their corpses for a specimen sample. You can also capture them in battle using a Lasso which will unlock additional data. The game is still very much a work in progress and the game engine is still under constant development, but quite a lot has been done so far and there is a lot of functionality coded and working including saving and loading data, an XP and ranking system for the hero, a full inventory system, a full dialog system, collectables, interactable items, containers which can be searched, multiple levels and sub levels, complex multi-layer UI and a pause menu system... I thought I'd let you guys know so you could offer any feedback on the development. I need to do a lot of work just to get the game into a state where it can be considered finished and fully working, but if you have any ideas which would make it a better game I'm all ears. I'm ideally targeting a release in June or somewhere around there, although having done nothing else but this for the past 9 months or so, I am going to eventually need to get a new job so the development might slow down a bit. Definitely want it finished and released by the end of this year. The game doesn't yet have a name, so if anyone can think of a cool and unique name for the game let me know. We have about 50 potential names but I'm not 100% happy with any of them yet. Working title is Not Another Zombie Apocalypse, although it's not completely unique. If anyone with design or audio skills wants to help out I'd be very happy for the assistance. There is potential financial reward for any work you contribute, but I can't guarantee anything until I see if the game makes any money when it launches. You would of course be listed in the credits either way. Here are some screenshots of the first few levels. I'll hopefully have a trailer style video to show off in the next few weeks.

    Here is a trailer I put together using the song "We Own It" from the Fast and Furious 6 soundtrack. I hope you enjoy it! I apologize if there is an existing topic I should have posted this in. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hUKwN02keHg

    Great Job Fitty. I think you got more accurate shape details than mine. All round, pretty close as expected, i never doubted the size of the map. Constructing the map made the wait a whole lot more bearable for me too. Something to spend an hour or so on each night. Mission two. Construct the seabed in 3D! xD nah, i'm glad it's finally come to an end, so i can actually play the fucker. It's crazy how much i'll know about the map going into it before I've even played it. I be like 'oh yeah that's there, as i recall...' lol Oh, and does this help people understand the scale a little better? /edit -typing on smartphones sucks!

    And here it is: I left the cuts in the roads/rails where the blue print's urban areas stop and my imagination took over. Here's a look at the mess I used: .gif comparison with Brady Games pic: Obviously some differences but pretty damn close. Anyway, glad it's over and we can sit back and wait for Rockstar to put a high quality map on the Social Club - and then we can rip and rape that for our own purposes.

    I have a theory that surveillance cameras and security systems will play a major role in GTA V. My theory originated while combing through the premier trailer and finding two signs that warn players of areas that are monitored: Finally, I found an actual camera modelled within the trailer, here: Because the game will revolve around prepping and pulling heists, I figure that a working surveillance system for bigger risked jobs (like this Rodeo Drive inspired jewelry store) would make sense. I think that these security systems will work similar to the "bandana" mechanic in Red Dead Redemption. Although the old west didn't have any cameras to monitor John Marston's criminal behavior, he concealed his face with a bandana. Witnesses to his crimes could confess to the local authorities and a wanted poster would appear in the towns describing John Marston. If John was creating crimes without his face concealed, the authorities and bounty hunters, had an easier time finding John. This system was remedied by paying a fine. GTA V's system would have to be a little more sophisticated. For instance, if the player was robbing the same jewelry store without anything on to conceal the player's identity, the camera could i.d. players and help the police pursue anyone who matched the player's description. Could security cameras also trip the store's alarm? Could some be motion-detected? Furthermore, as the game progresses, I'm sure there will be more creative ways to get around being recorded, such as destroying said cameras or removing their hard-drives they record on (or tapes?). Places like Pleasure Pier would be difficult to perform crimes on because of the security systems, which would ensure that authorities would arrive onto the scene quicker. Maybe there's a bounty system Rockstar is carrying over from RDR and updating/modernizing for GTA V. What else could security systems mean for GTA V?

    I wouldn't mind if they kept the driving mechanics the same, I got pretty good at moving fast while avoiding cars at the same time. What I do want them to change is the AI driving. No more random lane changing please. I've even seen two cars right next to each other try to get into the other's lane. Chaos I tell you.

    I officialy anounce that that was a pretty stupid question. A town is a town. But if you really want to know my opinion of what i think. I think smaller than LS airport. Why is that? R* could have a collection of 3 buildings and call that a town or they could all be the size of Montgomery in SA. they could make something half the size of LS in GTA:SA and it could still be a town because it is all relative. I wasn't asking for the definition of what a town is, I am just curious about how big all these towns are going to be. So I "officially announce" it was a very reasonable question.

    Well, I thought the BE3 presentation was fucking awesome. While watching the whole thing, I couldn't take enough notes. So many cool things to explore and do.... There are many who complain, but I prefer to praise Bethesda for their work. GFX, modding, construction, inter-action.... (WTF @ Psy on Twitter! "It looks like a Fallout 3 mod") I am totally looking forward to the Fallout 4 experience in November.

    It's GTA, i'll buy it again and again, unless something drastically changed about the game concept. We're on a fan forum that we've kept going for over 10 years, we are a cult following. R* can continue to succeed with their business for all I care.

    Drifting at the docks, part two: The rain made for some pretty cool effects, both with drops and puddles... Dup taking that same tight corner... Fucking epic shots of Kuz drifting ...other than the arm photobomb at top left in the first one... Kuz and Otiz say, :fuckyou: We all took sooo many pics tonight... Cheech didn't know it was drift night at first, so he shows up in a Liberator. Skyline iGTA Bowling Ace... This one is hilarious... This one's pretty good too... Lineup Bowling, round two, in 'pin' costumes: Tonight was a turkey. Trophies all around.

    Everyone expects there to be safe houses in GTA V, what kind of safe house do you want to see? There has been a good variety of safe houses in the past GTA games, including; red light district, back alley room, shack, ghetto cul de sac, up-market apartment, beach hotel room, condo, mansion, abandoned air field, ranch, petrol station/garage, and many more. I was hoping for some new unique kinds of safe houses to GTA V, as well as some of the expected. Here is a list of safe houses I'd like to see: Top floor penthouse (Mile high - kind of expected) Vinewood hill-top mansion (overlooking the city - kind of expected too) Wood lodge (beyond the mountain?) Luxury yacht (perhaps a transportable safe house?) Hobo shack hideout (after shit hits the fan?) Personal Island mansion (perhaps an little island out to sea?) Have any more unique ideas for safe houses to add to this? then please go ahead and post!

    Hey man, it'd be sweet if you did a scaled version of GTAIV's map next to it, so people would have some sort of point of reference Dup's put in a heap of effort just to do that. I don't mean to be rude but fuck the reference size. I'd like to see him superimpose a Prius next to the map to mess with people. Those who complain about the map size just need to chill out and appreciate what TreeFitty and Dup have done throughout the mapping process.

    I want less free weapons than what we had in San Andreas, having to purchase more of it would make the money more useful. Fewer spawn points and some randomness would be nice. Heavier weapons, like RPG's, should be very expensive and not very available. You mentioned somewhere that you should be able to fire a RPG out a window, but I'm not so sure I want that. Maybe I want too much realism, but if we are realistic, a RPG is a useless weapon indoor unless you want to commit suicide. The backfire will instantly incinerate everything in the room, including the guy firing it unless the room is big. This is what the movies don't show us. Maybe it looks okay for many people, but for someone who has done military service it looks ridiculously silly. Remember how Rambo successfully fired an RPG from inside a helicopter? From your wishes I see that you want realistic physics (trees and leaves moving in the wind etc), and I would also like that, so I want a little bit of physical realism elsewhere too. Plus teens. I want some young people in the streets. I know we can't have kids, but teens (maybe 16+?) are fine IMO. Disappearing? I instantly thought about Massacre when I saw this... But I do agree.

    ^ Thank you, Mass. Happened to me in San Andreas all the time. (And it happened under the police HQ in Los Santos to a NPC. ) Sorry but what is "noriety"? I tried to look it up but found no matches. I don't think the police should look after you if you don't have a wanted level. That's basically what you suggested and it's one of the few things we disagree on. I like the idea of throwing away clothes, but I don't want to magically find it in the safehouse afterwards. We both do like realism, but this would not be realistic at all. Just make some of them sexy, darn it!
