Yeah it was GTA: United! I didn’t know it did not include San Andreas, I must have forgotten.
I read that article you posted; seems like it really isn’t easy unfortunately. I don’t know if that’s the case in the GTA modding community — but do people compete against each other with their mods? Because why not just all sit together and try to work on this — it would be fantastic, wouldn’t it? I’m pretty sure if everyone contributes to this project it can be done!
You know what’s crazy by the way? I just saw that I already posted this same question
half a year ago. I totally forgot this. TheNathanNS wrote there that I should PM the professionals — but how do I know where and who they are?
Basically, my idea was this: We take all of San Andreas as we know it, but without any missions, or hidden stuff or whatever… we then take Liberty City and Vice City and put all of these where they would be located in real life (Vice City in the South eats, Liberty City in the North east, etc.). We then take all the vehicles from all games. That means also cars that are almost the same — an Admiral for example is not the same in each of these games. So we would have a 1992 Admiral, a 1984 Admiral and a 1986 Admiral. Same for other vehicles… and the same for guns! Also all clothes from all games. Just imagine how cool that would be! And now comes to best part — imagine the game was a huge multiplayer game. It would work like this: Everyone would have „a job“. Everyone would have a personality in the game — somehow. You would start by creating your own character. You would work your way up, and the best part is, if you would die, then you’d be dead for good. You would loose all you had and would need to restart by creating a new character. That would make the killing in the game much more… dangerous! There would probably always be trolls coming and creating new characters just in order to kill people — but that’s what the EP/DP/FP, etc. vehicles would be there for. Which would cost a lot of course! You would earn money by, say, being a taxi driver and bringing other players from A to B. Or being a police man and stopping the criminals. Or being a criminal. Or selling cars. Or importing cars from another city. There’s just so many things, I don’t believe this ever stops! Especially if there would be like thousands of people online! Don’t laugh at me — I know this wouldn’t work haha! But it would be just so… beautiful!
