I wonder if....(construction)

I was look at the trailer, and i'm sure we have all seen the building that is underconstruction. I didn't see any evidence in the trailer(except some movement that drew my eye over ther[could have been the suns/shadowing and such]), but i am wondering if we will see the completion of the building over time in gtaIV as well as building and expanding elsewhere. Sounds like a long shot but it would be amazing if new skycrapers just started being built and you could watch them progress.

Just a thought..
opinions?

Maybe... It'd have to do with the plot though, if they had a random skyscraper going up every month, it would get old really fast.

Well what I would love to see is a completely destructible environment, so if a building burns down, eventually construction to rebuild it will begin and overtime will slowly progress and finally finish one day.

I could be a new Love Media buidling for all we know, but my guess is it'll play an important part. Or it could just be there for asthetics.

Know what would be sweet? If every once in a while there'd be random disasters going on.

Say you're driving along downtown. All of a sudden a skyscraper has an explosion, as glass and debris fall all around you, before the whole thing comes toppling down as you veer out of the way. That would kick so much ass!

It would make the game more exciting for sure, but there would have to be some sort of reason behind it. Maybe you could overhear pedestrian chatter on the subject, or read a story on it in the Liberty Tree. If not disasters like these, I would like to see legitimate car crashes, where you know they're pulled over, police is there, tow truck ready to tow the cars away, stuff like that, plus criminals committing random acts of violence.

that would be tight, I hope they do include this idea.... or maybe they will continue the empire element from VCS, and have construction workers building them in real time when you take them over.

/totally agreed

but that won't happen.. you see how every building has just a texture over a cube (I don't know how to really explain).. if the buildings were destructable, they would have GLASS windows with seethrough in the interior of the building, but instead, windows are texture and I see it now; you fly a plane into the building, you instantly explode and the building is not even slightly damaged..

I've wanted that since I tried to burn down Helena's barn in SA. Also, here's an idea - remember Kendl Johnson talking about property development? What if you could actually do that, ie, buy AND sell property, redecorate it (like in the Scarface game, only better), even build property. That would be cool.
