Gang rides
and other shite

Ok, I figure I might as well make a seperate topic for it.


So, last time I was on RED, I saw all these ambient population messages, where a beat up van spewing fumes would rumble by, or a beat down gang ride blareing lou bega or whatever the hell those crazy messed up kids listen to in 2089, and I was left wondering, where do they get these things?

Now I've been told 99% of RED can't afford a car.
..? From what i've seen it's more along the lines of like 88.2%

So, I figure why not make Kro's more then a spot to gas up and do that IC thing.

Beat down rides.

examples...

2077 Hondamitsu Mono....stalls frequently, paint job sucks, and all the scratches and dents on it make it seem like It's survived WW6...15k

2080 Nissota 540 SX....What used to be a sports car is now the laughing stock of the motor industry. A 2 seater.....20k


And so on and so forth.

99% of REDites cannot afford a 50k Hondamitsu mono.
As a corpie, I had to break the bank to afford one. REDDies shouldn't be able to get them so easy, and they don't.

However, you slash prices, and quality, throw some crap at Kro's, and maybe more players will get a chance to test out their driving skills, pllay the getaway driver, show off your shitmobile, maybe turn Kro's into a chop shop as well so when you steal Chummer A's 2080 Truck, you can cash in.

This is an idea that has been discussed by the staff on and off since vehicles were introduced.

At this time, no decision has been made.

I think its a pretty good idea.  But at this time (as far as I can see), there isn't much in place to support mechanic/driver characters.  Its definately something that should be considered.

There are a few other things I thought would be cool.
Specs. Like, I dunno how ethicol fuel works and all that stuff, but like, say a 2089 Mono, V4,cruise control, AC, Automatic trans, a rough estimate of gas mileage( Becuase some drink less then  others and vice versa) and cool junk like that.

As for junk cars, if the idea is being implemented/talked about/ whatever, and car specs come into play, I would be more then happy to churn out some model ideas and whatnot.

Just to re-throw some things out, You guys should let us design some rides then submit them for approval. Also, provide some specs for the cars currently in place. It would be rather swizzile dizzle for shizzle.

Feel free to design a concept car and send it to us.

yay. Quick questions...

Are the companys listed the only ones still around? No Ford? No Dodge?

Since Holden is General Motors, would that mean other GM branches survived, such as Pontiac, or Chevrolete(sp?)?


Edit: IF said companys are extinct, when did they die out?
