    Thought it was a good idea to make a new thread about this game since the old thread is almost at 50 pages wich makes it a little harsh to read out all of the good stuff.

    The purpose of this thread is to exchange hints and tips for this game and talk about future updates as well as new ideas to be send to the Developer. Also upload your own payback screenshots here for sharing.

    So I can give ideas about some things I'd like in future updates? Well, it'd be nice to have a compass somewhere, and if there is, and I'm missing where it is, please tell me x.x I can't really find my way around without a sense of what direction I'm going.

    Maybe a way to heal your car, or yourself? Might be nice.

    Oh, and there's some places where you can get stuck, like in some fences after a jump from the soccer field. That just sucks when that happens.

    Would love for the following:

    1. Get rid of the mini map it is useless. Or have a close up mini map for the local vicinity (eg. GTA style)
    2. Fullscreen map-view on toggle
    3. More consistent car models, some look great, some look boxy (eg. Taxi Vs Cop Car)
    4. Less zigzagged textures on buildings

    Help pickups have to be a big number 1 (shouldn't be hard to add either), and I'm completely lost in the story, is 6 the last chapter? Because I'm back on 2... with the same missions.

    Better crashes perhaps? I dunno it doesn't feel like you do anything ramming people. Maybe better cop AI, but I can't really complain.

    the game is great but it needs,

    better looking cars. right now they look like boxes.
    better looking crashes
    a way to control the speed of the cars.
    easy mode
    health pickups
    get rid of those damn light poles. or make them fall down
    make the fences easier to see

    other than that the game is very good.

    I agree, except for #1, which I found really useful (once I found out how to use it)

    also drive by's
    more weapons
    multiplayer (esp. tank warfare.. red team vs. blue team:eek:)

    1. Improve graphics especially the people, which are worse than the cars.
    2. Allow for replaying missions - just let the mission be restarted from the phone.
    3. Improve map or create a new map accessible from the pause menu. Include coloured zones for parks, roads, rivers etc. Icons for different mission targets and the like - it can difficult to identify where places are etc.
    4. Improve police AI, they're pretty easy to escape most of the time.
    5. Give player a health bar so that we can be shot more than 1 time.
    6. @No Hero, love the drive by shooting idea.
    7. @inferi22, similar to the bribes in GTA.

    it's only dark in the last 2 levels, you have to complete the first four in story mode.

    Anyone else thinks that the later missions are much better?

    The thing I get paid for
    CANADIA
    1 - more time for missions .... when i hit a lamppost I cant make the time
    2 - get rid of lamp posts or let me go through them
    3 - please change water ---make it ripple ---show clouds ----its too blue and looks like sky
    4 - let me see the character at all times ---- get rid of buildings that are over top of my character
    5 - a story would be nice ---this is just a bunch of mini-missions ---whats the point?
