    Police things

    Raybob, I doubt many people would want minor traffic violations such as speeding despite it being realistic. I've always wanted the police to be more lenient but they were created as being tough, especially in GTA IV, in order for the player to have an obstacle or a challenge. If it was that easy to escape the police then the game would've been completed much faster. I think the idea of fighting back after being busted is a great idea, the police officer that is trying to restrain you and cuff you can only keep certain control over the character, as in real life. However, after say 5 seconds and nothing is done about trying resist the officer then the character would therefore be busted. As for the idea of the 'deportation', that wouldn't be a very good idea simply because: 1) The character may not be foreign. 2) It would be pointless 3) You bribe the cops in all of the GTA games
  2. Frequently Asked Questions: Grand Theft Auto Vice City Here is a list of FAQs that have been asked quite a lot in this forum, however it is still currently under construction and will be expected to be complete soon. Please also note that this topic could change quite rapidly meaning that the titles, given section numbers and questions may change. Each subject has been assigned a number, each heading is assigned a two digit number (0.0) while each question is assigned a three digit number (0.0.0), this makes searching for your question much easier. If you search up 11.1 then you will get the heading in the contents and the main heading of that topic which is "Bodyguards", however, if you were to search up 11.1.1 you would get the first question in that heading - this makes searching faster. Here are the main headings that questions are currently under: Storyline Missions 1.1 Storyline Missions (Vice Point, Washington Beach, Ocean Beach and Prawn Island) 1.2 Storyline Missions (Starfish Island and Leaf Links) 1.3 Storyline Missions (Downtown, Little Haiti, Little Havana, Viceport and Escobar Int.

  3. C'est un tres bonne nuit! Je vois que vous parlez le francais! C'est tres bonne! Est-ce que autre des personnes parlez le francais a le (au) GTA Place? lol, j'ai dis peu de mes dernieres sentences un mois apres le voitre.... Je seulement un peu du francais..... Probably a minor mistake? Je ne connais pas d'autres personnes qui parler le francais sur le GTA Place. Bien que je connaisse d'un peu de websites de GTA que parlent francais. Je peux voir que tu sais peu de francais mais c'est bien.
  4. What we should also do is count how many unique members actually use it instead of counting the number of posts one topic gets because many posts in one topic could be made by 2 or 3 people instead of a fair amount of members. This would make it slightly more fair. Which languages will we start with?
  5. Om Nom Nom... Anyway, I knew TGTAP's birthday was in November, I just didn't know what date. I've been here since March 2007, it's a great site. I hope it keeps going, at least for another three years so it can celebrate its 10th birthday but it would be wonderful after that.
  6. I think the best idea is to create forums that are language specific. So that we don't need to spend a lot of time on translating the whole site. What I presume is that there will be a General Discussion and GTA Forum for that particular language. The forum name would be, most likely, the name of the language in that language like "Deutsch", "Français", "Português" or "España", or alternatively it could say that it is the forum of that particular language "Le Forum de 'The GTA Place' en Français", "Le Forum de Français" or "Le Forum de Français sur The GTA Place". These forums will most likely function the same as the English one but with specific Forum Bosses keeping an eye on discussion there as some members of staff may not know the language that is going to be used.
  7. It appears as though we should start with Portuguese, Romanian, German, Dutch or Polish - the five most common countries in question that uses the Alphabet we use and the majority of the countries that don't speak English.
  8. Thomas.

    GTA 5?

    I would prefer, personally, GTA [insert City/Country Name]. I think that the Roman Numerals should end at X. GTA I GTA II GTA III GTA IV GTA V GTA VI GTA VII GTA VIII GTA IX GTA X... It looks a bit persistent to be honest.
  9. Maybe start a trial in a common language first that has multiple members who speak the language on the forum like Portuguese. Spiver Vice, Ivan, Dirty Harry, for example, could all start it up. Maybe start with any of the following languages and see how it goes: German French Spanish Portuguese Dutch Russian OR Romanian This is what I'm suggesting, any of these I believe would be the best to start with. I recommend out of those Portuguese, Spanish, French or German since we have a lot of members who have some sort of knowledge of those languages.
  10. I generally don't post in the FFM private forum (mainly because it's getting inactive and boring). I think the biggest problem of forum activity is that members have quite a lot more going on in their personal lives, I have many reasons why I can't come on, like today I had to walk 10km from Linlithgow to my town to raise money but this resulted in me grabbing a cup of coffee and sat down at the PC to come on the forums for a change. My life is getting busier because: I'm partaking in the Duke of Edinburgh Award. I prefer to hang out with my friends. I want to get good grades at school. I want to learn things at home that I can't at school like Italian, Portuguese and the Cold War. I am becoming more and more active in terms of sport and have joined various school clubs, the best of my abilities being used in the Badminton club and in two weeks, the Badminton tournament. I go to a Youth Club on Friday nights as well. And so forth. This causes me to forget about TGTAP and do other things like Facebook, watching the TV and, sometimes, going to my friends' house. Another problem might be that many guests who view the forum may be looking for answers but don't speak English or has very little knowledge of the English language. This has been discussed before - making TGTAP a multilingual or bilingual website with many members who can speak more than 30 languages between us all to help with it.
  11. They are but some people do occasionally miss them and may need them pointed out. Unlike them, we know the rules a lot better, if you want more members to stay then the older members (i.e. members who've been here more than 8 months) will have to be role-models instead of ignoring the newer members.
  12. I recommend that you use Fraps as it's one of the best video and picture takers for computer games. Fraps Website: www.fraps.com
  13. What if these people only want help? What if they didn't want to join in the first place but couldn't look for the topic in question because they can't use the search feature (I believe)? I think the forum is fine basically as is, yes it does get boring sometimes but I still come, albeit every 4 days, but I still come. It doesn't have to look good for people to come, it has to look at least satisfactory for people to come and this forum looks way above satisfactory. Here's a suggestion, if we didn't slag off some of the new members, they might actually stay because the last time I checked, although this was a few years ago, new members were being insulted and didn't want to come back. For example, Hazer, he wasn't perfect but nobody liked him because he didn't know the rules and was persistent. To sum up: Less hatred = more and better new members. Maybe if we merely point out to that member that they're doing something wrong, then they might actually do something to fix the problem. If you look at my first ever posts, you'll most likely find that I was the same as these newbies and people like TM, Gerard and Nate helped me to fix my problems back then.
  14. I play: Keyboard Piano Bass Guitar & does singing in the shower count, that's about the only time I actually sing.
  15. I have been all that active either lately, I do come on twice a week though. It's simply because I don't often get the chance to come on and if I do go on the internet I usually forget. It might also have something to do with the fact that I am generally wanting to talk to my friends a lot more. I spent a lot more time texting than I do on the internet (Sent 1200 texts from October 4th to yesterday and 1000 received). There's more but I have to go to school so I don't have the time. I'll add to it later.
  16. I'm getting the game cheaply - genuine, from a friend for £25 - over the next few weeks, I've never really liked CoD games but I've only played the old ones (CoD2 and CoD3). So I'm hoping it's good.
  17. You and I both. I've only been to Sarasota, Orlando, Newark and Tampa. I have posted in here before but a new Vice City would be great. I personally am wanting this new city to be around the same size as the GTA IV version of Liberty City as the size of that city was perfect. I am hoping that if they go with Vice City that there will be much more islands as with Miami, I seem to love islands in games. In addition, I would like to see a new rendition of Las Vegas (or Las Venturas in the GTA Series). It would really be cool to see. Las Venturas was a relatively small city in GTA San Andreas but a bigger version of it in the next GTA game would be great. I'm thinking that Las Venturas has greater possibility than say Los Santos as Las Venturas is mentioned a lot more in GTA IV although this conclusion means nothing, Rockstar have always done this, mentioned the next city along with various other locations to trick us and to get us to start thinking about it. I have always fancied a European location but it seems less likely for a GTA game to be set outside North America or the USA as there has only really been one GTA game that has. If it were to be an American or Canadian city that was chosen, I would love to see a depiction of: Las Vegas, Nevada Chicago, Illinois Miami, Florida Toronto, Canada Atlanta, Georgia Elsewhere I would love to see a depiction of: Paris, France London, United Kingdom Glasgow, UK Berlin, Germany Naples, Italy Tokyo, Japan Mexico City, Mexico
  18. School sucks, that's why I am unable to come on most of the time.

  19. I would but I really can't be bothered and I meant to say understand, I can't actually say it but if you were to give me a word like o primo/a prima, I'd link back to the French 'le premier/la premiere' and voila, you have "The first".
  20. Hey Matt. Not spoken in a while, been a little busy with school and what not lately. How are you?

  21. None... I go on my phone and check via the phone's internet. If not on the phone, I go on the browser. I'm beginning to use e-mail a lot more less nowadays.
  22. BoneyM - Rasputin I blame my history teacher for giving my class the song - it's addictive.
  23. These screenshots make the new expansion look amazing, it looks far better than what TLaD was - in my opinion better features such as the parachutes and better vehicles such as the Bullet and that other sports car.
  24. It's been edited, it was part of my first introduction that I forgot to remove.
