  • I discovered a while back that if you go to Special:InfoboxBuilder, it will allow you to build your own unique infobox, and it is pretty simple too. You don't even need to figure out any complicated coding to create one. If you notice, I have created several for my pages that I created. I still have a lot of work to do, and I have to replace most of my old infoboxes with the upgraded ones.

    I just thought you would find it pretty interesting. I stumbled upon it a while back and I have been creating infoboxes since. I remember you saying last time that you found it hard importing the GTA Wiki-style infobox, so creating your own by going to that link would be a piece of cake.

    The only thing is, you cannot change the color of it, and it will only be the color of the wiki link text (in this case, blue at the moment).

    • Thanks Dimitri, that's a very handy tool! I'll have to try it out when I have time. I've had a few difficulities with importing infoboxes from the GTA wiki. Bits of the coding and parts of the infoboxes seem to glitch out from time to time which can really mess up articles. So the Infobox creator will be really handy to avoid this.

      I'm about to go through and rework some of my older articles to tidy them up. So I might have to take a look at the creator. For example, I'm going to do a bit of work at my James Hopkins page. I wanted him to end up doing well after his very troubled childhood to show that bad kids can turn their lives around. But other characters from Bully will go off the rails or end up badly. Just to show that life doesn't always get better after high school.

    • No problem, man. Your plans with Bully sound interesting. Maybe if I ever create that fan-fiction sequel to Bully that I was talking about, I can bring back some old characters and show that not everybody is doing very well after their high school years. I am not sure when this Bully 2 will be set in. Who knows when Bully 1 was set in, as well. It was either in 2006 (the year it was released), or possibly the early 90s. Bully 2 will be around 2016 and 2017. Maybe I will have Jimmy Hopkins play a prominent role. He could be working at the school or something.

      I'm going to rework some of my articles as well. The Sibling Rivalries franchise is going to return pretty soon with its sequel series, and I want everything to look real neat when the series starts. I want to upgrade the character articles and old comic articles with better-looking, tidy infoboxes.

      I copied the infobox style from the Rugrats Wiki a long time ago, and that looks way too bulky in my opinion. Also, you can only go up to 12 rows, so I thought that was a bummer. I decided to squeeze in several information details (date of birth, age, nationality, etc) into the same row, but that looked messy. These new infoboxes are better since you can add as many rows as you desire, and you have the option to make the headers collapsible.

    • There is some debate around when Bully was set. But it seems to be set in 1991 if you look at a few things. But again, that can be debated with other evidence. I tend to go with the 1991 setting as that's just my general opinion and it fits in neatly with my GTA Expanded Universe. I've actually toyed with referencing a few of the Bully characters in my fan-fictions or maybe having some of them appear. My Bully articles are a sort of "Where Are They Now?" type thing to show what the characters did after high school.

      I like your idea. In my creation's universe Jimmy has done really well with himself to the point that he has become a multimillionaire businessman. Bullworth Academy has been closed for years after the events of Jimmy's years there. But I also like your idea, try it out if you have time.

    • In my story, Jimmy might be working at the high school in the series. Jimmy has become quite successful following his high school years. He has changed for the better; he has went to college and has recently moved to San Andreas (my version) on the west coast. He seeks to continue working in the school business. Not as a teacher, but maybe as the principal, or administrator. Either way, this would be about a decade or so after Bully 1, so we will have seen Hopkins having grown up and matured.

      I will try and get to my Bully 2 story soon. Wish me luck! For now, I am again procrastinating with ideas. I just haven't been the same since last year. I do not do much fan-fiction articles like you since I work mainly with my physical comics. I am not as good as you, judging by my since-deleted articles that I had up here long ago regarding my own stories of GTA. However if I find the time and do not have any major things on my plate, I will make some stories. I have some very interesting ideas that just won't fit into my comics.

    Rough draft of the map

    Hey, Enigma.

    I want you to check out this map I created in my free time. I know, I know, it looks a little childish, colored with crayon. It was the only resource I could find in the house. Anyway, I thought this would be an interesting map for a fan-fiction GTA game, or something similar.

    This map is an alternate universe version of San Andreas that I created, which is constructed of cities from California, Nevada, and Arizona. This state would be located on the west coast of the U.S., where California is in real life. Sticking to the GTA style, the state appears as a bunch of islands, but it is actually connected to the rest of America.

    The left hand side of the map are Los Santos and San Fierro (all of the cities are shaded in gray, by the way). I tried to make Los Santos similar to it's GTA V counterpart.

    The top island will consist of Las Venturas (the second city under the circles, which I consider to be Mount Chiliad) and probably a city based on Oakland, California (which, in real life, is also connected to San Francisco by bridge). Or, should I recreate Tierra Robada here instead?

    The island at the bottom right corner will be based on Arizona, which is, by the way, the state that I live in. The city at the top will be based on our capital, Phoenix, while the bottom city will be based on Avondale, which is one of the more old-school towns in the state that I grew up around.

    So, where would I actually use this map? I wouldn't use it in my comics since those are set in real-life places. I think it would be cool for a fan-fiction GTA story, as I mentioned at the beginning.

    I always wanted to create somewhat of a fan-fiction sequel to Bully, and have a story focus on another high school freshman on the west coast. Maybe his story could be based here. Although maybe this map seems too big for a 14/15 year old who can't even drive any vehicles yet. And it would probably be a hassle for the protagonist to attend school if it's in one island; it wouldn't really allow him to explore the world.

    • Fair enough. That's the case with anything really. Some of us will like things one way but others will like it another way. I would personally like to see the GTA maps as one big map to better reflect the real-world and I've used this format in my fan-fiction creations merging all the maps into one bigger America map. It is possible to do, other game developers have done it, but you would have to limit the map at a certain point. Like have an invisible wall that stops you going further at a certain point. I'm not sure about the unlocking new areas of the map though - that seems like limiting the player a bit. It's a cool idea but it could be done better. Maybe the player can't leave the city for some reason but the other areas are still open. They could have a sort of penalty early on - like if you go too far you risk mission failures or negative impacts on your game.

      Like, if you go too far away a rival gang kidnaps a friend or one of your businesses gets attacked. All because you've left and your rivals think they can attack without worry now. Something like that would be cool to see.

      I REALLY like your idea about the high school freshman. That is a really original idea that will be cool to see in a GTA-type setting. The protagonist would have the typical teenage life at high school having to worry about classes, romance, social situations, the bullies giving them a hard time, maybe family dynamics and high school popularity. It could be so very interesting if done well. I'd be more interested to see Arizona or a GTA version of Arizona though to be honest as its an entirely new location.

      I thought about visiting Arizona and New Mexico in my fan-fiction as well as Nevada. I know those areas seem popular with outlaw biker culture.

    • Those would be interesting to implement in a game. I think there should at least be some restrictions at the beginning and being lifted as the player progresses through the story. It just seems more fun. But again, that's just me. I see how you like to reflect the real US and I respect that as well. Maybe I will end up merging everything together if I end up never making a fan-fiction game out of the map. This is just a prototype map.

      Maybe at the beginning of GTA V there could be a dispute between Los Santos and Blaine County and because of that the player will get a wanted level if they try to enter Blaine County? Something like that would be interesting to see and it would require the player to go through the story if they wish to open the entire map. But I see how having everything open from the beginning is better, seeing as to me, everything happens quite fast in the story.

      The Bully 2 sequel idea sounds alright but it needs more work. The story will start in the Arizona-based portion of the map, then travel around the state, with the story coming back and ending in the Arizona-based portion again. So the major events will pretty much be set in Arizona. We will see a lot of that in the story.

  • ... how are you, man?

    Also, about that GTA idea you, me and Dimitri had. Are we still gonna go with it? Or are we just gonna let it be now and just continue our own things?

    Just asking.

    • Hi there man, I'm doing okay thanks. How're things with you?

      I'm curious about the idea and how you plan to go about it. What did you have in mind as to how we would actually do it? We'll have to check with Dimitri to see what he thinks.

        Loading editor
    • Well, considering how I did want it to start off where the first two games began with (a random bunch of wannabe criminals doing... the obvious), I thought of merging the first two games into one story then have it continue on to where it leads to next in the GTA franchise's timeline. Of course, we may have to incorporate the other spin-offs like the one from London and Chinatown.

      As it goes on it eventually lands to where the current, or recent, game in the franchise is right now; GTA V, Los Santos 2013.

      Also, I'm doing quite okay to say the least. If you have seen the few new stories I made, I'm trying to create a new schedule in my book so that way I can devote myself to one of them each day... with the exception of my Stickman Universe series which I have to look after and work on day-to-day.

    • Huh, so it's an expansion of the canon universe. Is it specifically more world-building or expanding on the storyline of the characters, or...?
        Loading editor
    • I can't speak for the GTA Nerd. But my fan-fictions are a mixture of both world-building and expanding on the stories of specific characters. I always felt that the GTA World in-game is very lacking so I've started expanding the world to make it more similar to the real world. New states, locations, brand new characters, original characters expanded upon and so forth.

      My creations exist in the GTA Expanded Universe which is essentially an expaned version of the GTA Universe.

    Anyway, I suppose you stumbled upon my works/article for quiet some time. Well, if you did stumbled upon them... I'm asking about your opinions especially for my upcoming comics Within which you can also give me ideas out of it.

    Yeah, that's all I can say for now and I'll wait for your reply.

    Peace out.

      Yeah, I've noticed a few of your articles around but I haven't really had a proper chance to have a good look at them yet. I'll have a look at Within and let you know what I think, I'm always happy to help out.

  • So, when should I pump out the new Spree cartoon I promised?

      Loading editor
    • Whenever you feel like it really. Spree is pretty open with its cartoons so long as they are appropriate to the teenage and preteen age group. Just think Nikelodeon really to get a good idea. But I'm thinking of creating an "Adult Swim" type segment to the WCN channel so the older age groups can enjoy those delightfully inappropriate cartoons.

    • I've already created the GTA Expanded Universe for my creations. So it's my creation that encompasses all of my creations on the wiki. Do you mean the linked storylines which could be in the GTA Universe.

      My GTA Expanded Universe is essentially just a larger scale version of the GTA Universe. New locations, states, cities etc. We could make a GTA Parallel Universe or something like that to keep it separate from my GTA Expanded Universe - there is sort of a GTA Multiverse with the GTA 3D Universe, the GTA HD Universe and now the GTA Expanded Universe.

      Why not add a GTA Parallel Universe? Or the...Vinceverse!

      Yeah, I was referring to that idea we'd make of linking all the stories within the 2D, 3D and HD Universes in the GTA franchise into one living universe, although trying to avoid inconsistencies.

    • This wiki uses a timeline for events. Check out the Template:Timeline page for an idea of what I'm talking about. Have a look at the 2013 page to get an idea of how its done - this is an easy way of recording what happens in what year in your fan-fiction or creative works.

      If you want you can create your own heading like the other ones you'll see.

    But it seems like you don't have any further plans for it, so is it okay if I fill out the blanks myself?

    • An animation company is a really cool idea. A channel like Spree, which features a range of animated and reality teen shows, would naturally employ an animation studio to design shows for it. I'm sure Nikelodeon uses an animation company of some sort to help create its shows.

      Spree would quite naturally have specific guidelines for acceptable shows. Because it is a channel aimed at teenagers it is not allowed to feature shows with adult themes and topics which might negatively influence its young audience - like "Anything Goes" that was too violent and mature. The last thing the network needs is a mob of angry parents beating down their door which would then bring government agencies down on them.

      I really quite like your animation company idea!

    • Thanks. I got the idea while writing Coop and Berry's page. I originally wrote "The show was a pleasant surprise for critics especially considering the last show made by its company" but I remembered you wanting me to run ideas by you.
