Will APB ever be what RTW intended it to be?

UE3.5 is better omptimized. There will be a slight amount of graphical changes, but to 80% the performance will be improved.

Means, APB will run on 64bit instead of 32bit like now.

well thats something!

UE3 isn't bad, but it has its limitations when you are working from one of the earliest 2008 betas

but 3.5 is almost as shit as 3, no?

It maybe a bit dated but it's the minimum requirement for consoles.

Regardless APB's current Unreal Engine 3.0 need to be upgraded to 3.5 before it can be upgraded further. For best results, new content and features should be added after when the game engine and code is more stable and easier to work with.

 

Shit or no, it's needed.

I want to be able to buy guns with ingame money.
I want this game to advance and get more districts, racing, casino, cinemas.
What is this ... i loved this game when it was vanilla but the actual state of the game
make my head shake in disbelieve... Please make it a good game, LO. PLEASE! 😢

 

G1 broke my heart.

Cinemas? how could this work? Would it play player made fan sub videos? Plus this is not GTA so I honestly do not think cinemas is a good idea.

Whats so hard in making guns being able to be bought instead of rented.
Whats so hard in making districts instead of cashgrab items? If they wouldnt have used all their efford in milking the tiny community,

it may not have died so fast. I used to love the game until G1 got its hands on it. I really hope LO knows that p2w is not the way.

because the server does not run off of dreams it takes money to pay the bills *shrugs*

Because the current engine is the limiting factor. It's way to hard to make new weapons,cars,maps with the unreal engine apb runs on. So they are "Trying" to port it over to the new one for better performance/content. If the engine ever will come out is a mystery.

uh engine upgrade is almost done......

every modded GTA 5 server has more players than APB at its peaktime lol.

sure potential is there and i cant unsee that, but only time will tell if 3.5 or even UE 4 will change that.
i think it would have been easier/faster to just rewrite the whole damn thing to UE 4 or whatever engine.

comparing a 10 year old game to a new one isn't quite fair though , but regardless of that APB beats GTA in customization by far.

I'm just gonna say that if we ever get the final district, I'll believe we are in an alternate reality after-all, and are here to make things right again.

 

(if you look at the APB maps found in-game there is a district missing - iirc it was referred to as Midtown)

 

2️⃣0️⃣1️⃣9️⃣APB is already pretty amazing. 🌎🤸‍♀️🤸‍♂️ so close, a happy new year in advance ppl.

While I have a lot of respect for what enthusiasm and hard work Little Orbit has done, their results have been mixed and frankly I don't care for time limited events that are bugged on the first day.

I like a lot of other people don't want to hear "We are so close..."

Sorry but I have little patience for Little Orbit learning on the job after so many years or "Soon™", I don't want to hear that it's nearly done, I want to to see actual progress!

Yeah I know where to find Mixer, Twitch and Youtube if I wanted to watch others playing on xbox.

Last time I check, this wasn't none of those sites, After so many years I am asking myself why I waited another year Unreal Engine 3.5 when 4.0 has been out for just under half a decade.

 

You're a Comedian, what am I waiting for? Brexit?!

Everyone talks about the customization in this game like it had never been done before as if WWE Day of Reckoning didn't come out for the GameCube in 2004.

 

They didn't do much different except streamline the process.  You could design logos, make your character's body look even more rediculous than you can in APB.  It's literally the same.

 

And the music creator is just a trimmed down FL Studio.

 

What this game did do was take the character creator from wrestling games, a professional music suite, and gta with some minor free running elements and smooshed them together.  The game was not and is not revolutionary in any of its mechanics.

 

But that combination of things is still pretty damn awesome.

midtown was never a map, and it was never intended to be

 

it was a test district for assets that got rolled into financial

Wait, RTW didn't intend for APB to be a game that would shut down in 70 some odd days?

Lore wise Midtown is still a thing. Gameplay wise it does not exist and likely/hopefully won't. As many don't like to hear, adding midtown will not provide any unique playspaces that are not already facilitated in Financial. This is because Financial was grown out of Midtown. Midtown was nothing but a prototype district and all the design philosophies within it were used to birth financial as the final product instead.

 

I've said such many times on the forums before and you all always downvote me. So go ahead, downvote me again (though it doesn't do anything) for being just the messenger of reality.

If they made a Midtown there is nothing stopping them from making whatever they want. It's just a name, they could bring the name back and make it nothing like a financial district.

a lot of people talk about midtown like its nearly complete and just waiting for finishing touches (similar to asylum) when it never really existed

 

while a new district could be have any kind of map balance, midtown has some decent description in the lore (not that anyone cares tbh) that sounds a lot like financial

Yeah it's just background lore and likely always will be. But they can always change lore to make it less like it describes financial, but as we know, unlikely.

Speaking of maps, I tried my hand at making a mapped out San Paro...well, O.K. it's already mapped out but I used an image that looks like the ones on the ticket machines and bulletin boards and placed where I think the districts might be, after looking into the lore of it all. I know none of it is official, I literally made it up. But as the lore does mention those areas I just thought I'd plop them down for fun.

It's likely not wrong, but RTW was done for before they could do anything new so the 'official' statement became: nope. This map wasn't made for lols.

 

And done for, mostly, mostly, thanks to a great toxic community exploiting their real-money/game-currency monetary system, let's always add that. What a mess. What a loss!

So true, they had a barrel full of idea's.... that map isn't wrong, the racing district was real intent.... but the hosting company got killed by exploiters, cheaters and trolls. Some of which, a few, are still here exploiting, cheating. trolling... today. Imagine that. How queer can a game or forum history be, right?

I'll go with 'very'.

 

And yes, "If you play good you can play here for free or even earn some real life $" didn't turn out to be the best idea on an anonymous Windows based internet hosted game. Not everyone will play / act fair. And that idea attracted a boatload of these people. Whole clans. Some of those players are still here yes. What a view to take.

 

Sincerely,
