The time has come guys. We are in a unique position as a crew. We are one of the few off road crews that Rockstar has on there radar. We have had more features as an off road crew than any other. We have an open and respectful line of correspondence via the mouthoff email system, social club, YouTube and twitter.
We also are one of the largest and represent players across all formats and around the world.
And we have good links with other crews and off road communities on facebook.
What does all this mean ? Well it means if anyone is gonna lead the charge for an off road update it's us !!
So let's do it.
We need ideas, we need videos and we need pictures.
Types of vehicle, what would be included. Game play ideas (the biker update was based mainly on MC and work) that's a concept that an off road update would need.
I hope to introduce a place were we can post ideas and get an online petition going.
It's not gonna be a short process but defo one we should take up.
Everything has to be part of a context like the MC or the import / export. What do you think of a DLC dedicated to off-road racing where illegal activities are to steal parts of racing cars to be carried on trailers to be attached to the jeep. This can be an expansion of the activities of the CEO with new wharehoue to buy (...remember that big R. wants something to make us spend money ;-) ) in which to collect the pieces to sell.
On the front of the Dune, it has the words "Los Santos Rallysport". What if Los Santos Rallysport was a garage (like Benny's) where you take a car to turn it into a full blown rally monster, for example you take the sandking there & turn it into a Dakar or Trophy Truck. There can be multiple teams for each car: works team, Pisswaser, Redwood, Sprunk & maybe even custom liveries for privateers.
Some trucks (semis\big rigs) could even be purchased to transport your vehicles to rallies\trails\events. So instead of just starting a job & picking your vehicle, you'll actually have to transport it to the start line.
As for the events like the ROAR Rally, there could be a staggered start option(running order generated randomly). These events could even be more realistic by throwing in service parks to repair & tune your car, road sections between stages & stage loops (e.g. stages 1 & 4 are the same route but stage 1 is early morning & stage 4 is at night).
You could own a garage to store & maintain your cars, like the Biker DLC, you could hire staff to work at this location. You can only own one garage at a time & the size of that garage would depend on the size of your team(I'll talk about that later) for example if you're a privateer you own a small garage, own 2\3 cars you own a medium size garage & if you own 4\5 cars you'll own a large garage.
Right last topic, teams. Like the CEO stuff where you can hire associates for doing missions, you could hire crew members or friends as drivers for your team to take part in rallies. This means there could even be a team aspect thrown into rallies, like the Constructors Championship in the WRC.
Everything mentioned above is what I (a rally fan) would like to see from a off road\rally GTA DLC.
