I did Big Smoke also and got the EC Black Perennial, so the percentage is 13.90%. All Unique Stunt Jumps except for the Gant Bridge one have been found and completed and Burglary was also passed which gave me a +3 Offset in the Mission Passed/Attempted Stats (the other two offsets were from the Chiliad Challenge).
Something I couldn't believe when I uploaded the stats is that Bullets fired and Bullets hit are equal, so 100% accuracy lol. And yes it shows the same numbers in-game.
I don't like my Safehouse Visits and Days Passed stats, and I know they can be improved, same goes for Playing Time.
Pay and Spray Visits are also at 0, just like Meals Eaten. Wasted and Busted are also at 0, logically.
Odd that it's 3 extra Attempts and not just 2. Burglary adds an Attempt, that's for sure, and so does ONE of the Chilliad Challenges, but not TWO. I only have ONE Offset in my PS2 13.90% Starter Save and it's from Chiliad Challenge. I didn't do Burglary, but if I did, it would be TWO Offsets. Still not sure how you got 3...
Yeah, I don't get SA's Accuracy. I usually have poor Accuracy in these games, but every time I play SA, my Bullets Fired and Bullets Hit is practically dead on, if not dead on perfect with 100% Accuracy. It's just a quirk of SA and it's "easy" to have such a Stat. My Starter Save also has 100% Accuracy, but it's probably wrong or not adding up properly...
Yeah, I am in the same boat. I don't like my 15:09 Total Playing Time, 40 Safehouse Visits, and 6 Pay and Spray Visits in my Starter Save for SA, but I DO plan on redoing it in the coming months, so at that time, I will have about 13 Hours Total Playing Time (shooting for that, anyways), 25 Safehouse Visits (shooting for that, anyways), and 0 Pay and Spray Visits.
Yeah, it's simple to have 0 Meals Eaten Stat. I also have that in my current (old) Starter Save, too, and only ONE Meal Eaten for the 100% Saves. You are forced to eat during Ryder, but that's all. Just like you are forced to use a Pay and Spray during Drive-Thru.
Anyways, very good you finished and I am glad you also got your Phoenix and now can start working on the 100% Save!
I'm not really sure of the point of doing stuff at other states before they're unlocked
For the Challenge. Also, for people who like to play the games rather regularly. So if you're a Completionist, would you want to do all 250 Collectibles in SA over and over when ever you want to do another Save and reach 100%? Or how about Paramedics Level 12 a bunch of times over and over and over and over? This is why people do Starter Saves. Not in SA, but you can reach practically 50% with not even doing a single Mission in III, VC, LCS, and VCS and a lot of the annoying stuff in SA can also be done in the beginning. Not to mention, it's one of the only Starter Saves I enjoy doing due to the challenge with surviving 4 stars while doing a bunch of stuff in SF and LV and then having to make it back to LS to save the game. It's just like in IV, you do the Starter Save with a 6 star wanted level and it's totally awesome for the challenge and experience.
Experience > Everything Else...
Also, people like obtaining Rare Vehicles in the beginning in which you ONLY CAN obtain from either Vigilante with a lot of reloading and wasted time as well as locked territory and bringing them back to Los Santos early. They have them early, since during Gray Imports, you can convert ANY Vehicle in SA into EP/FP form. So if you have these in the beginning within the Starter Save, you also never have to spend WEEKS trying to re-get them.
Starter Saves are the logical step for any Player who is into GTA thriving for perfection while doing many Saves frequently. Nobody wants to do all the mundane bullsh*t in these games over and over for 100%, so it's best to get everything and anything that is available in the beginning out of the way so you never have to think about it again...
