Airline Travel to North Yankton and Back... ...Regularly. I think it would be a great idea to add a DLC in the future that allows (paid) travel to a select part of North Yankton, for extra Strangers & Freaks missions - or, for an even more immersive experience, to use as Michael & Trevor's "flashback" missions, where you do all of the heists that they handled when they first started out up in that snowy North Dakota-like area. It would present an entire new terrain and would continue the story on (while actually rewinding the story, if you think about it). And in doing so, we could get a more in-depth understanding of Brad, and why Trevor was so upset about his supposed incarceration, while he wasn't upset about the other heist member's deaths. The idea would be set up like so: 1.) Either you can walk up to the airport at a (obviously new) "travel" blip on the map, and it gives you the choice to fly to North Yankton (and vice versa) for a set price, which allows a cinematic of you getting onto a passenger jet, the jet's departure, arriving in North Yankton hours later, and then appearing outside front of the North Yankton airport, or 2.) You use one of your purchased aircraft in Los Santos/Blaine County to fly in a particular direction on the map for a certain distance until it prompts you something along the lines of "Are you sure you want to fly to North Yankton?" (assuming San Andreas = California, and North Yankton = North Dakota, you would fly Northeast on the map), and then upon accepting the prompt, the game loads North Yankton as it would the normal game, over a black screen, and when the screen fades back, you are flying into the North Yankton airport (at which point you would successfully land the plane yourself and put it temporarily in a hangar, probably also paid, and continue on foot, or by vehicle to your destination) The DLC's title could be something like Nostalgia, or Old Wounds. And also consider new, North Yankton exclusive vehicles and upgrades, like snow plows and special tires that all have actual physical effect (i.e. snow plow can actually remove snow from roads, which regularly accumulates over time), and other events that are exclusive to the DLC. Just a note, visiting the Airport or flying in a more Eastern direction could also prompt you with "Are you sure you want to fly to Liberty City?", at which point, if accepted, you'd be asked to enter the disk for GTA IV. You would appear in the front of Francis International Airport regardless of if you were flying the plane or not, as GTA IV does not support interactive planes. What do you all think? This would mean some extra work on Rockstar's part to add an actual North Yankton airport, but I'm sure they would be up to the task if it meant more money in their pockets and a bigger, more immersed audience.

So this guy named Glogger posted something about GTAV and now the post is deleted and he is banned from Gamespot.This post was made in the Gamespot forum Here's the the cache to the page: http://webcache.goog...3844/gta-v-info Here is what he wrote Mar 12, 2012 4:22 pm GMT Hello! I am a friend of someone who recently got sacked from RockStar North for general misconduct. Because one contract to RockStar covered everything, including secrecy, and his contractual obligaton was now removed, he was legally allowed to spill the beans on Rockstar's upcoming GTA V. And he is making damn sure everyone knows about it. Here is the info you really want: 1. The protagonist will be one character, and one character alone. His name is (as some rumours said) Albert De Silva. He's a half hispanic man who was once part of a crime family in Vice City. He decided to settle down and have kids in Los Santos. He has one son called Kevin De Silva who is your stereotypical CoD player. He's lazy, useless and shouts racial abuse online and is really into FPS games. Kevin does admire his Dad though. 2. Multiplayer will hold 32 people on the Xbox and PS3. I wasn't told how many were able to be on the PC. Just like in RDR, players will be able to form Gangs. These gangs are not ranked through XP anymore, but via Reputation. Instead of gang hideouts, you can do jobs that range from robbing a launderette to breaking into a military base and stealing state-of-the-art weaponary. The Gang leader has much more control over his or her gang by being able to rank members of their gang and setting more specific objectives to specific members of their gang. Gangs can have their own terratory but this only applies to areas inside the city of Los Santos. 3. The map is about 5x as large as the GTA IV map and the City of Los Santos takes up just under half of this area (so it's a bit bigger than 2 GTA IV Liberty Cities). The map is (like most GTAs) seperated into three different sections. 4. Planes are flyable, they range from World War 2 fighter planes to Private Jets. 5. Cars and guns are customisable to an extent, for example, you can cusomise a gun to have a supressor on it and you can install nitrous into cars. Here's some stuff you might like: 1. The protagonist is the "rich guy" from the GTA V debut trailer. You get to learn more about this man in the second when he talks about his troubles. You only see the protagonist twice in the trailer. First time is the side of his face and second time is when he is driving a Deceptor (Audi R8). The people robbing the jewellery store are just with the protagonist. He is driving the van ready to get away. 2. Gunfights are more realistic. When you are shooting a gun out of a window of a car, depending on how fast it's going you will have troubles aiming due to shaking cameras. 3. The game is due in May 2013. A more specific date has not been decided because the game is still needing 6 months to be fully developed. They will have a playable demo at E3. 4. Police chases are now way more than either running or driving. Depending on how wanted you are, police may bring out riot shields and flash bangs. 5. When someone reaches 4 star wanted level, there will be a radio warning on some stations. 6. Radio stations now do traffic reports that are actually correct. So if you don't know what route to take, you can check the traffic reports on your phone or the radio. 7. The in-game TV now has many more channels 8. Admin edit: Spoiler for previous Rockstar Games 9. The underworld actually has a working economy that you can contribute too by buying and selling drugs, weapons and illegal cars in single player. 10. The protagonist can take drugs which will have some effects. But smoking weed on the streetwalk will lead to getting a one star wanted level. 11. Police cars will go after you if you're obviousely breaking the speed limit. Having high speed crashes will also damage your health. Wanted levels: 1 star - police follow you on foot and try to make an arrest. No sirens, no car chases (unless you are speeding). 2 star - police will still attempt to make an arrest. If a weapon is drawn then the police will begin opening fire. Police will use stun guns if a weapon is not drawn. 3 star - Chases begin and the police don't care how they stop you, they just want to do it. 4 star - road traps, radio stations and much more hostile police.Even when you have evaded them, they will still search for 24 in-game hours for someone matching your description. 5 star - shoot to kill, arrest only if it's made very possible. Even when you have evaded them, they will still search for 48 in-game hours for someone matching your description. Few missions become unavailable if you are wanted. 6 star - military vehicles come after you. Even when you have evaded them, they will still search for 72 in-game hours for someone matching your description. Some missions become unavailable if you are wanted. Hope this is useful!
I was just thinking. If the game is set only in Los Santos, which is pretty much confirmed now. Will it be bigger than San Andreas in terms of actual map size? I realize San Andreas covered three cities and surrounding countryside, but everything was shrunk down and the cities were far smaller than any real city. GTA V clearly looks much richer in detail and bigger looking from what we have seen of it so far. But will it actually be bigger than San Andreas, or ever Red Dead?, since Rockstar have mentioned it is the largest and most ambitious game yet in their latest statement. Might as well start discussing it, but don't moan that the game is going to suck because it's not going to be San Andreas, that's not the point of this thread. Personally I hope it is bigger. And i hope to see loads of small country towns sprawled out over the countrysides, full of interesting characters to do side missions for and what not. /edit Here is some of the hard work put in by members on this forum: 'Fitty's Map (Final): DuPz' map (Final): Banana Pudding's map: Los Santos Blueprints: Image from an achievement/trophy icon: Brady Games Map:
