The topic about buying travels perks for merits is pretty popular here, so I ask: why not make a new travel destination?

I corrected some typos in text and I left pictures without changes (I'm lazy). Sorry if I hurt your eyes with any stupid spelling error

Over 100 thumbs up! Thanks for all, who supported and still supporting this idea
Well, this suggestion had +157 before ratings reset ...
--------------------------------------------------------

SANKT PETERSBURG
Travel last 3:45hrs and cost $50,000.
If you have airstrip, then trip last 2:30hrs and cost nothing.
With WLT benefit, trip last 1:52hrs and cost nothing.

(Prices of some items depends, which use they will have, more details below)
russia-final-fix2-2.png

effect + strenght and defence, - speed and dexterity
duration: 2:30 hrs
after effects: 2:30hrs (its only one bottle )
OD: energy and nerve set on 0, happy on -500
addiction level: 1,6%
-> Uniform Set: OTHER or SPECIAL
Slightly increase your stealth
-> Snow Panther Plushe - SPECIAL
-> Gas Mask - OTHER or SPECIAL ($2,500 or $250,000)

ARMOURS:

WEAPONS:
Notes:
Makarov: Obvious?
Groza: Enfield for speed whores, with stronger kick and lower acc.
RPK-74: LMG.
Dragunov: SG-550 with better acc. Not my fault, that more expensive Armaligth is weaker than SG. Small clip capacity force you to reload often. Also, decrease your dexterity by 5% while having this weapon in figth
AA: Expensive alternative to AT with better acc, but ammo also cost more.

APS: Automatic pistol, that could be a good switch for MP9 however I have no idea about the stats. Maybe I'll add it someday.

Makarov PMM
mak.jpg
WEAPON TYPE: PISTOL
Sorry Strelok, I haven't got idea for APS stats. Maybe I add it later.

groza.jpg
WEAPON TYPE: RIFLE

WEAPON TYPE: MACHINE GUN

WEAPON TYPE: RIFLE

WEAPON TYPE: HEAVY ARTILLERY

Other items:

Options of special feature in Russia ,I think people should choose the best one Black market win, so the other options could be placed in the next county, that I think out

Black Market (cost: 500,000)
(You pay 500k and you have access to this option until you left the country.)

[i]You're looking for something rare? Come closer and find something for you ... (prices and stuff can be changed)



List of available items with approx prices:
- Goodie Bag $9m
- Erotic DVD $2m
- Small Explosive Device $8m
- Business Class Ticket $20m
- Book of Christmas Carols $25m
- Gift Card $25m
- Feathery hotel coupon $30m
- Casino Pass $200m
- Cesium $300m
- Skateboard, Boxing gloves, Dumbbells, Parachute $450m (prices the same as in Nikeh Shop)

Everyday the vary items will be available, in vary prices, but in limited amount (E.g. today 2x Cesium for $295m, tommorow no Cesium, day after tomorrow 4x Cesium for $315m and so on)
This option could help to remove some amount of money from city. Prices also could depend of current Item Markets prices.

I think that Black Market should be unlocked in mission for 40 lvl players ... I already have an idea for "Operation State of Emergency", but it isn't a topic for missions suggestions

Example:
bazaar.jpg


Projects of "Comrade" honor bar (travel Russia 50 times)
cub1.png

cub3.png

cub2.png
(I was thinking about name it "From Russia with love", but finally, I decided to choose "Comrade" )


IMPORTANT NOTE:
Yes, you can say that "weapons are overpowered" or "prices are bad". But note, that I'm not a site developer and its not a final idea. Its only a suggestion and if any admin say, that this idea is enough good to implement, the names/prices/stats can be changed to other.

Black market is too similar to the normal screen with buying items abroad. Some ideas to spice it up:

Randomize prices and items available.
Give it a small possibility of selling fake items. (Get an event when you land back in tc: "when checking your luggage you realize your cesium container was only filled with led").
Get busted by the secret police. (Have to pay a set fine or end up in russian jail, possibly lose all money)

seems good, though the weapons are over powered, try comparing them to the gold plated AK

also I take it te vodka and all the other things are just collectables?

and for a tour of the city, lossing health is harsh, even 1%, maybe you lose 50 health, like a xanax od (or maybe 500 or something?)

I'm so good, on my birthday I phone my mum to congratulate her

I'm thinking now about practical use of Vodka (in-game of course) and other items. But everything depends, that anybody from staff(admins?) say, that this idea is worth further work, else it will be only my graphic works.

AA was based on Anti tank and RPK is weaker and slower than PARA but with better acc. And gold plated AK is one of the best weapon and the most (extremly) expensive, but ok, I'll re-think those two weapons

Health loss in city tour is temporary, you regain it after :15 period. It could be lesser value, e.g. max 5%. I think about jail time but ... No it can't be, i can change it with money loss. But don't worry, propably this option lose with Black Market

the health loss is pretty pointless then, as you'd most likely be flying and not suffer any penalties as your life would be back to normal for when you landed, maybe its a 24 hour penalty then?

i dont think there should be a black market because (in my opinion travelling in torn is all about travelling to blackmarkets, so in essence, russia is the black market.)
but you can always put those items in the items list, and have the prices change just as drug prices do in other countries.

also, i assume you can buy drugs in Russia? i suspect a usual list of drugs (xanax, pcp, ecstasy, etc.)

to me, theres too many high-priced/high-powered guns. maybe swap the dragunov with a melee weapon? perhaps a shaska?
or maybe add a couple more cheaper gun/weapons, to give it some balance. cheap AK47's?
how bout some armour, like a soviet army chemical protection suit (similiar to a hazmat suit but cheaper). or a Russian Army Spetsnaz (that can give an increase in stealth for the lols.)

and more cheap junk. the snow tiger and vodka are good, just add some more random stuff. the little doll that has heaps of smaller dolls inside (matryoshka dolls)
maybe an arctic flower? apparantly, "Chamomile is the national flower of Russia"

although, another place to hunt would be nice. heaps of wild animals, maybe a spot of arctic fishing? lol

these are just some of my ideas/opinions, hope they can help you.

pictures and some info on stuff i have suggested;

I like your suggestion. I'll put there drugs, maybe armor and more cheaper stuff for item-runners. If i find time for this I think in final version should be about 20-23 items, like in UK.

As I said, amount of items in black market will be random in vary prices, and you won't find all of them everyday (eg. random 6 out of 11 planned will be available daily till sold out). I don't know, that options of daily changed price will work with non-drugs items, if those will be put on item list. So for this two reason I consider the Black Market should be separate feature.

AK 47 is already in Mexico. And AA have a better accuracy (not damage) than AT because its 2x more expensive. I also planning Dragunov as best kind of rifle weapon (Armaligth cost $20m), but I think it will be better, if I decrease damage to not overpower it. Groza will have balanced stats between Enfield and Steyr.

I think about hunting, but its already in South Africa. Also we don't have more places that generates more inactive hunters

I like this. So I vote "Da".

Would the items have a use? Such as the gasmask making you immune for dirty bombs or something (yeah, I know, it doesn't make sense, but we don't have any VX or mosterdgas attack possibilities here)

Well we can try to find any use for those items:

-> Guide - OTHER
-> Matryoschka doll - COLLECTABLE
-> Vodka - OTHER or DRUG:
effect + strength and defence, - speed and dexternity
duration: 2:30 hrs
after effects: 2:30hrs (its only one bottle )
od: energy and nerve set on 0, happy on -500
add level: 1,6%
-> Uniform Set: OTHER or SPECIAL
Slightly increase your stealth
-> Snow Panther Plushe - SPECIAL
-> Gas Mask - OTHER or SPECIAL
Every stats decreaser (e.g. Pepper Spray) used against you is 25%/50% less effective
-> Ushanka - CLOTHES
-> Replica of Red Flag Medal - COLLECTABLE or SPECIAL
You have 5% discount for buying ammo and free ride in buses (ok, there no buses in TC)

the items list is looking good. but there is still a problem with your special features idea.
i was thinking about some possibilities and i googled things to do in russia and a few things came up; museum of arts (ballet, painting, opera, philosophy, military) and the trans siberian railway.

so i came up with two ideas,
one being you can visit the "museum of arts" and if you visit a different area, say ballet, you would get a small amount of speed increase. like training at the gym.
military = strength
philosophy = defence
...something like that.

or, you can jump on the trans siberian train and go to some far off town and you can have the black market there. buy your items then train back. acess to the train can be unlockable by doing a mission.

these are just basic ideas, if you like them i can elaborate more.

First idea is like city tour. But note, every visit area like "military' will cost energy, so it will be like a gym, but in other country. Also, Black Market feature smash the other 3, so it propably lose too.

Yes, we could add something, that you need to use some kind of expensive kind of transport to get the bazaar. Plane can't be, so why not a train?
