So now that I have a PS4 and GTA 5, I've begun the long-overdue experiment of making the cast of the Megaverse using the game's engine. 

And now...I'm wishing I'd saved up for a gamer's PC.  My tower can't handle the PC version.  A pity, as that's Mod Central!

The PS4 is...sadly, very limited! 

I've begun with Gerosha universe characters; but I'd like to expand my list of experiments to include Dromedians, Eccentrians, and possibly Xiralians if :iconadam-00: is up for it.  (Highly doubt that last category.)

From the Cherinob series, the demonness Astirnah would be the easiest to replicate - since she looks like a thug anyway!  However, it wouldn't seem right unless Cherinob could also exist to fight her.  And so far, I have yet to find any combination in GTA Online's character creator that leads to an avatar that looks anything like :iconfaestock:.

I'm considering cancelling my Q-Basic Gorillas line entirely.  It creates too many franchise rights ownership debates, and is too much like Michael Bay's work.  So I won't be pursuing anything with that.  No Col. Flix release, sorry!  And as you all probably know by now, Stationery Voyagers is canceled.  So no chance of any characters from that series!

So without further adieu, here are the characters proven possible, the ones not yet possible, and the ones I have yet to try:

Established


Stung Hornet  - GTA 5 by BulldozerIvanCelia Winehart - GTA 5 by BulldozerIvan 
Extirpon - GTA 5 by BulldozerIvan
Purge-Flare - GTA 5 by BulldozerIvan

So far, the game has proven capable - with a little help from Online and Photoshop - of re-creating Stung Hornet, Celia Winehart (minus her Taterbug suit), Extirpon (though only as Eric Opendi if you don't use Photoshop), and the Purge-Flare (but only as Chris Kennal unless you have Photoshop.)

A close approximation of Taterbug might be possible in her catsuit only, but would require re-creating her in GTA Online.  To my knowledge, the sackcloth overcoat that completes her Taterbug outfit is still not possible - yet.  And I'd hate to think what the DLC for that would cost!  It should be entirely possible for a modder at the site 5Mods to make a true Taterbug outfit using PC-available tools.  But so far, in the PlayStation world, only Celia's civilian form is possible.  The art student female stereotype is very close, just a little too tall.

There are a few other noteworthy limitations.  Purge-Flare's flamethrower is more primitive in design.  His suit is more armored guard stereotype as opposed to the unique fireman suit with black base and shiny purple trims in the place of yellow trims.  However, this new look works just as well for him as his more traditional appearance.

Extirpon doesn't quite look right without his trenchcoat; but this is pretty good for an Eric Opendi just discovering what he's capable of.

Stung Hornet took the most effort to generate in-game, as she specifically required Online features.  Her hair is too short, and her face looks too old and tired.  However, the rest of her is pretty character-accurate.

Failed


The Flippo sisters are simply not possible.  The closest to them is the Vagos Sister stereotype; and she wears makeup Candi would never wear.  She's also dirtier-mouthed and much more promiscuous than Candi and Marina at their absolute worst ever were.  She's also way too tall!  On top of that, outside Ameristan, Candi would rarely do GTA-style things.  And even doing superhero work, she'd want to wear a Ciem suit - which isn't possible for PlayStation (but maybe for PC.)

Jeral Cormier / Botan the Plant-Man is also not doable.  As a plant-man, he has a skintone only the PC side could replicate.  Otherwise, his outfit would be a slight palette swap of Eric's.  His abilities would lead to a ban Online, and would require jailbreaking for the Story Mode on PS4 to allow.

Centhuen Prototype abilities may require a lot of scripting, and would be similar to coding Nightcrawler and Wolverine mods along with Spider-Man-like agility.  This would affect not only Ciem; but also Feruga, Mukade, Centipede Charlie, and any others. 

The Flippo sisters as civilians aren't doable with Online either: they all look too old (and tall!)

Because of how old-looking female avatars tend to be with Online, only Director Mode unlocks can be considered as Dozerfleet character doubles for female leads.  And there are very few good ones to choose from!  The Tabitha Pang near-equivalent is the wrong color scheme, and a bit too fat!  There's a Director Mode stereotype that resembles an aged Maria Sanmarcos; but she has yet to do much of anything significant in the brand.

I get that there are no actual children in Los Santos.  That's smart, as players blowing up small kids with grenades might get the game banned in some countries.  At any rate, Samantha Steel / Dollschief is not possible. 

Pilltar and Strawberry - and their pilots - are not possible.  Sorry, Barrin family!

Hea Pang's model would look too much like Mingmei Cheng / Stung Hornet's, due to the game's limitations.  So no Hea Pang.  Although, there is a Director Mode avatar that resembles a mix between Hea and Michelle.  Problem is: deciding which one she is going to play, and what sort of story she'll have!

Kayla Tarington was a smuggler for a time; but always maintained her good looks in spite her hard life.  She never gave up on what she believed in, no matter how hard the Gwirdons made it for her.  And while taking jobs she didn't always like, she was seldom one to commit herself fully to life as a criminal.  She didn't have the heart of one.  She was one by necessity; not because she enjoyed it.  Even so, she's too pretty even with her shorter hair to be a GTA Online protagonist. 

Sure, helping Volkonir in his quest technically puts her at odds with the law again; but she's not about to do GTA things without a good cause.  And even then, she only comes close in Rise of Semaphry!  There are far worse criminals in the stolen auto parts smuggling ring she was a part of than Kayla herself; so any one of them would be a better fit for the game.

Given the limited options in-game for women period, it's safe to say most of the Dozerfleet cast of women will probably NOT get adapted!

Jordan Reddlewick / Sapphire King is not possible, for the same reason Jeral isn't possible.

Possible


Audrey Golin, perhaps?  She'd need longer hair than what I've seen so far available in Online.  However, Lady Screwworm is of the right criminal mindset to be in GTA Online.  The only issue is that she'd consider the game's world absolutely petty crime.  She much prefers supervillain-grade terrorism.

I've mostly experimented with the women so far - and become visibly frustrated with the lack of good options.  There is a lot of untapped potential for the men.  Will Donte be possible?  Hopefully, he won't look like Franklin.  He's shorter and thinner - and doesn't talk like Franklin.  His mouth is "whiter than sour cream," and he seldom swears.

Villains, antiheroes and bad boys would all-around be a better fit for the game.  Black Rat, Tin Dragon, Frank Morvel, and Victor Nanale would be possible contenders. 

However, at this time, I struggle to see much future for Gerosha characters in GTA.  A GTA 6 release might change that.  But until then, GTA 5 has too many limitations to be practical. 

What of Ion Boy?  Volkonir?  Hoshijo?  Lenny Drae?  Carlos Modi?  Those would be top picks to explore next.  Even though a big part of GTA is the prison of Boilingbroke, and it seems like that'd be perfect for Camelorum Adventures, you'd come closer to a proper simulation of that with a highly-modded Prison Architect than you will with GTA!  Where's the women's section?  From what I can tell, the inmates at-present are all men!

On top of that, Camelorum is much smaller than Boilingbroke - and the staff is far less psychotic. 

Volkonir is on his own for a time before being taken in by Hanom.  But would he be blowing up helicopters for no reason?  Probably not.  And his lack of henshin knight armor would break some of the illusion of him being in the game.  Carlos is also too nice.  It'd be far more logical to play as a Modi family gangster - if that's possible.

Conclusion


The GTA side of Dozerfleet has a long way to go to make implementation of much of it even possible - let alone practical.  Very saddening, as it was supposed to be the brand's big branching out into game genres that aren't Sims titles.  That notwithstanding, it is a happy and thankful miracle that at least some characters translated over (even if only partially.)  I'd like to edit together at least three short films with what I do have.
Mingmei plots a way inside
Scene from: "Sodality: Vindication"
Made with: GTA 5 (PS4 version)

BACKGROUND
============================

With a direct feed from Miriam in her ear, Mingmei must infiltrate this gate and hack the PC inside.  While Miriam is able to understand the interface, she can't hack it from her location.  It has to be done by Mingmei.  Miriam also has to be quick to help Mingmei get the job done, and then hang up!  No one can be allowed to trace her, or else the Icy Finger could start a war with China!

Mingmei was determined to save as much of Toklisana as possible, but had to hurry.  Her furlough was only good for a few days, and she had to return to prison after her mission.  She let herself be arrested so Miriam could flee to China, and messing this up could mean death for both of them!

She tried to remain focused, as her fear of the afterlife became a constant distraction. 

Also bothering her: her conscience.  Why couldn't she end her affair with Brian Mizgel just yet?  She loved Shing more, and felt it not right to get conjugal visits with a side man.  Yet, Brian was there for her when she got lost on a separate mission, and they felt a strong attraction.  She didn't want to blow him off, given she'd had sex with him at least a dozen times.  But when forced to choose, she knew her choice would be Shing, whom she'd treated like he was already her husband at least a hundred.  Going back and forth between the two of them was getting old; and she knew what she really wanted.  Even though they seemed willing to share her, she couldn't shake the feeling that it just wasn't right.  Time to choose one and commit!

However, there was no time for her love triangle tonight!  She had to get business done!

Mingmei interrogates strippers
Scene from: Sodality: Vindication
Made with: GTA 5 (PS4 version)

BACKGROUND
=========================
Mingmei always felt male strippers were some of the dirtiest beings on the planet.  Alas, one might have valuable information.  Then again, she was forced to work as a prostitute by her own government for several years; so who is she to judge?


Their Asian persuasion makes her feel a little bit more like she's back home - but only a little.  Most of mainland China wouldn't be so patient with the one dude's drag queen outfit.  It's simply not done there.  The stench of illegal drug use was also in the air - also something that rarely happens in public in her home country, as drug dealers there get the death penalty if caught.

Celia Winehart - GTA 5
Scene from: Sodality: Instigation
Made with: GTA 5 (PS4 version) in Director Mode

BACKGROUND
==============

Running odd jobs as a courier, parkour expert and homeless teen Celia Winehart longs for but a few things in life: to make sense of her place in the universe, to find her missing mother, and to find a good man.  Alas, she feels she's getting nowhere with any of these goals.  She is narrowly avoiding the wrong side of the law with her odd jobs. 

Police trust of the public in Houston is at an all time low.  Corruption and treason are suspected everywhere, as the Society of the Icy Finger has joined forces with the Hebbleskin Gang and the Phaletori to form a cartel known as the Triumvirate.  (Which would later include the Gwirdon Nation and forces of Xironooti, among other villains, after an invasion from the greater multiverse.)  As such, Celia fears she could be arrested any day for any reason - including none whatsoever! 

It'd give her a chance to find her mother - but at what cost?

She's gotten pretty good at avoiding street-level gangsters, and at not needlessly upsetting them.  However, the Hebbleskins' invasion forces have unleashed Meethexos, rogue Phexos, and Marlquaanites on the public.  These Marlquaan-bonded metahuman pests are a bit more dangerous than a weakling like Celia can handle.  She'll need allies that can defend her - and soon!

She doesn't trust the police - nor SCALLOP - as she suspects they are both corrupt.  But who else could be out there?

It would take until the following season for her to meet Candi and Dolly - and to get her answer.

IN THIS SCENE
============

Jerry "Skiggy" Scalemon was from a family on the wrong side of the tracks, and worked at a saw mill to get by.  He was a friend of Celia's but was framed for a murder.  Making matters worse: he was an ice elemental Marlquaanite!  Though, he dare not use his powers behind bars, lest SCALLOP get involved!  As bad as the regular prison was for him, he feared what might await him in SCALLOP Men's Containment Center.  SMCC was a LOT meaner inside than SWCC and SJCC!  It had to be!  Worse: he didn't have the connections the Flippos did!  There'd be no Randy Lapborn, Shaniqua Tamery, or Marion Wevenil to come to his aid.  He'd be assumed a piece of garbage, and probably left for dead!

Therefore, Skiggy had to avoid his true nature being made known.  Not easy, with all the punks pushing him to make a mistake! 

Evidence that could acquit him was saved to a file on a flash drive.  However, his enemies were determined to see to it that police never got their hands on those files!

Karl "Rubes" Robespierre was the first to acquire and copy the life-saving video over.  However, his ability to hand the drive off to Celia discretely didn't mean that he ensured the Southside Mowers wouldn't find out about him acquiring the footage.  He had to only hope the Mowers weren't smart enough to figure out that he would've relied on Celia to be a courier.  He was ambushed in his home, which was burned down by the Mowers with help from Steve Frenze - the cousin to Antinio Frenze, the original Lava Tigre!

Using information gathered from Miriam's testimony of the Purge-Flare's battle with Antonio in 2015, various agents of SCALLOP were able to pull a similar stunt to defeat Lava Tigre II.  Yet...the flash drive that cost Rubes his life was still unaccounted for!

Celia heard word over the radio of Lava Tigre II meeting his demise.  She knew she was now carrying an object of value to SCALLOP, and needed to take it to the police!  She'd heard rumors that a teenage girl in southern Indiana in 2015 had a similar dilemma on her hands - and went to juvie over embarrassing Darius Philippine!

This put Celia in a state of panic: to save Skiggy, she had to risk her own freedom!  If SCALLOP came down as hard on her for circumventing their interests via contact with local police as they did on that other girl, then Celia might be facing up to three years at SWCC, on the 2nd floor south wing!  Alas, she knew that SWCC 2SW was not where they stored the truly dangerous criminals.  That was 1NW.  And the truly evil ones with powers that befit the death penalty?  Those were on 2NW and 3NW.  Even so...that was a good chunk of her life that she'd have to throw away if caught.  And for what?

Even if SCALLOP didn't pursue her, she was a known homeless doing odd courier jobs to get by.  She's frequently been seen jumping rooftops, and was wanted for questioning regarding the possibility that someone could want to press trespassing charges.  (In this timeline, the destruction of the US and panic over instability caused by the Triumvirate has led to the 5th Amendment not meaning as much as it used to.)

She hadn't prayed much in a long time; but there was nothing to lose here.  Authorities knew SOMEONE had Rubes' flash drive.  There was but one thing left for Celia to do: turn herself and the flash drive in - before the Mowers could get to her!  And pray that law enforcement didn't come down on too hard on her for trying to do the right thing!

NOTES
===========

Other than being too tall, this default actress from Director Mode was an almost perfect match for Celia "Taterbug" Winehart.  Her actual Taterbug suit is missing, but it's hard to find any game with resources for a short girl in a sackcloth robe and black catsuit beneath it. 
Loading...
Extirpon (Human Form) - GTA 5
Scene from: "Extirpon"
Made with: GTA 5 (PS4 version)

BACKGROUND
==========

Oddly enough, Extirpon's iconic negative battery monster mode is NOT the form he most commonly takes!  In fact, he often makes himself invisible more often than not!

But when he's not content to consume that much energy, he appears as just plain old Eric Stanley Opendi - with a Dread Pirate Roberts mask on his head.

Don't assume this less monstrous form makes him any less dangerous, however!  In some ways, more so, as he can now execute his abilities while draining less of his energy reserves to do so!

His ability to make you suffer for your crimes of arrogance and pretentiousness are limited only by how full of yourself, malicious, and defiant you are - and by his own imagination!

Villains, antiheroes and bad boys would all-around be a better fit for the game.  Black Rat, Tin Dragon, Frank Morvel, and Victor Nanale would be possible contenders. 

However, at this time, I struggle to see much future for Gerosha characters in GTA.  A GTA 6 release might change that.  But until then, GTA 5 has too many limitations to be practical. 

What of Ion Boy?  Volkonir?  Hoshijo?  Lenny Drae?  Carlos Modi?  Those would be top picks to explore next.  Even though a big part of GTA is the prison of Boilingbroke, and it seems like that'd be perfect for Camelorum Adventures, you'd come closer to a proper simulation of that with a highly-modded Prison Architect than you will with GTA!  Where's the women's section?  From what I can tell, the inmates at-present are all men!

On top of that, Camelorum is much smaller than Boilingbroke - and the staff is far less psychotic. 

Volkonir is on his own for a time before being taken in by Hanom.  But would he be blowing up helicopters for no reason?  Probably not.  And his lack of henshin knight armor would break some of the illusion of him being in the game.  Carlos is also too nice.  It'd be far more logical to play as a Modi family gangster - if that's possible.

Conclusion


The GTA side of Dozerfleet has a long way to go to make implementation of much of it even possible - let alone practical.  Very saddening, as it was supposed to be the brand's big branching out into game genres that aren't Sims titles.  That notwithstanding, it is a happy and thankful miracle that at least some characters translated over (even if only partially.)  I'd like to edit together at least three short films with what I do have.

Thanks for the fave! A likeness to your Tabitha Pang, huh? I think my kid's gonna like that when I tell her--especially what appears to be a few similarities.

She's not as old as your character, but combat-wise is a student of Hung Fa Yi Wing Chun (she's small but her front-thrust kicks make her Sifu nervous enough to brace for impact).  She's not a Traceuse but has trained in gymnastics and expressed an interest in parkour so we'll see what the future holds.

Tabby doesn't know kung fu per se.  She improvises like MacGuyver.

She was instructed a little in martial arts by her mother and some friends, but never went beyond a yellow or red belt in karate.  She's no black belt. 

Tabby's idol, Candi Flippo / Ciem, was predestined by a genetic experiment on her father to have centipede-themed abilities, making her pretty much an analog of Spider-Girl.  Candi was also trained in martial arts, and used her centipede abilities to advance herself intuitively.  So Candi is like Spider-Girl with a bit of Black Widow in terms of fighting style.  Tabby has nowhere near that skill level with martial arts per se.  She's an intuitive fighter, and can improvise well, but is not a professionally trained nor a particularly disciplined martial artist. 

She has learned from watching Ciem fight as well, and has learned a lot of life facts from her mother and from the Gray Champion.  Other than that, whatever else Tabby learned, she learned on the streets as she went along with Sarah as a tutor.  That, or she learned it at Mansfield Juvenile Treatment Center from the other inmates she was with. 

Candi had been to Madison Juvenile in Indiana 11 years prior to Tabby being sent to Mansfield in late 2026.  Candi taught Tabby prison slang, just in case the government ever betrayed the Sodality Church / Sodality of Gerosha which both girls had become a part of by 2021.  (Which, the government eventually did betray them, after Rappaccini's plants started getting their way.) 

So other than what she learned from a handful of superheroes, none of which truly committed themselves to teaching her, Tabby acquired most of her skills in prison.  Tabby often proved the wiser tactician of the two girls, and the better negotiator, and to have better morals.  Sarah, however, was the expert on how stuff worked.  Occasionally, the girls would teach another inmate some of their knowledge, and would be taught skills in return.  Behind the staff's back, they made it "MacGuyver School."

Tabby and your gal sound like they could, under the right circumstances, be dangerous to each other.  If the girls ever teamed up, they'd pose an even greater danger to the Chrome Kite and Icy Finger than either alone. 

Tabby only accepted the offer to take away Marge's power and distribute it amongst her friends for one reason: because it would be them and their courier / spy ops versus an entire cabal of baddies that had exiled the legitimate government and taken over the state - a cabal of supervillains that had its own army to send after Tabby and her friends.  And even if they didn't face the newest incarnation of Stagtar or Microwave Mouth that week, it didn't matter: helicopters and bullets are not funny.  And even if the police chief sympathizes with you, he still has orders to shoot on sight.

In other words, she only got superpowers because she can't afford to go down from a single bullet.  She needs to be tougher.  Otherwise, she would not have even agreed to have powers.  It violates the code of the Keepers of Hester's Locket, a code which warns against using Marlquaanite rubies and bonds for personal gain.

Thanks for stopping by.  How go things?  I'm currently working on the actors' articles for the official Emo Rangers Wiki.  I put in a request with Wikia to officially adopt it, which would make maintaining it my official second wiki project.  (And one I could add to my resume for volunteer work, as the other one is about my brand and therefore wouldn't count.)

Just got done with watching the latest Paul Joseph Watson video about the elections in the UK.  It makes me wonder, based on how the protestors are acting, what exactly got into their drinking water.  You can watch for yourself here:

This could be a huge year of adjustment for me too.  I'm looking for another job, and will be doing a lot more of that very soon.  I might have to move out of my area.  But where to next?  I haven't the foggiest clue.  I only know I can't stay where I'm at much longer.  The job doesn't pay that well, and my family's decisions are as much a hindrance to my life progress as they are a help.

Glad to.  I was going to write a funny caption reinterpretation, but I got a little tired and went to bed.  And forgot what I was gonna write. 

If you'd like, I could come up with a funny caption.  I'm currently working on how to depict Lemon Witch in art styles that aren't Lego, Sims 3, or Sims 4.  My own freehand style is...well...hideously bad.  But I'll upload it anyway, to demonstrate why I rely on Sims so much.

================

I was also upset last night when I went to bed, because CWCWarden claimed he delights in compliments and feedback on his profile.  But when I did compliment one of his works, saying I'd like to use it as a frame of reference for how to write my own, he blocked me from leaving any other comments!  I was like: "What the hell, dude?"

And I had this entire story figured out for a funny caption too, in which his blonde in one scene of his was a raging redneck who didn't know how to keep quiet and the Asian woman was trying to mentally decipher some codex from somewhere.  The redneck finally addresses the Asian as "Viet-Vicky," and asks her (Min Liu-Kin) what she's mumbling.  Min keeps trying to decipher the code, a bunch of letters with two-digit numbers after them.  The redneck then accuses her of playing "Mental Sudoku," and says that it's nonsense because "everyone knows" you have to write it down to keep it fair, and to let others play.

The guard then chimes in that the prison they are at doesn't have Sudoku, just "Polar-Coordinate Battleship."  To which the redneck replies: "Well I'll be damned!"  To which the guard replies: "You mean, you're not already?"

Yeah...he allows comments on horsewhipping of vaginas, but my comedy dialogue about Sudoku gets blocked!?  I even modeled the redneck blonde's personality after the Fine Bros.' reinterpretation of Sawyer from Lost, from those parody videos they made back in 2009, before they got greedy and made "ReactWorld"!  Real creativity is condemned, and mindless sadism is rewarded?  I was like: "What the hell???"

===============

Anyway, glad you're still around.
