With size=7, I sure am glad you couldn't make the tags operate correctly. If you want your words to be read, use proper English and punctuation. And there's no need to double post.

There are MANY ways (and topics) to get across the water legitimately ahead of schedule. You should maybe add to them instead of creating a new thread.

Boats always crash into the bridge that leads to Starfish Island from Little Havana because it was a mistake for R* to put those big boats onto the ocean near to the tiny, curved part of the bridge with the road on top. Even though boats may appear, they do not spawn close to you because you will still be behind the gate!

This is a false glitch. Only a screenshot or a video of it will make us to believe it... I'll add it though if it's true. smile.gif

Read the rules. Or wait around before to see how things function before starting to post.

Search being disabled forgives the duplicate topic mistake-- however I'm betting you didn't try.

Also go to the starfish island & go to Diaz's mansion & go at the backside and there's a boat parked there.Sit in it and woosh.

Liar, there are no parked boats earlier on in the game! You have to finish a couple missions first. Plus, Dem would have thought about that trick for his quick-start guide anyway if it was really true. moto_whistle.gif

Once you get to the W island, you can use the Coast Guard boat--it's there from the start of the game.

Once again, only when the other side is unlocked.

The way I go island hopping is by the Marina; get a car, push it into the water right next to the pier at the first gate (you have to knock out a tree). If the car floats high enough, you can jump up and grab the Reefer boat (probably the best one at the docks that early in the game). The Cheetah nearby will not float high enough, nor will the Banshees that tend to spawn in the carpark.

Starting a new game, I just did this second time around. I used the white Admiral from the start of the game, but it didn't make the distance so I had to find another car. In the carpark, I grabbed a Rancher (the closest vehicle around), knocked out the tree again (which respawns when out of sight), lined it up and pushed it from behind while running. It landed on the roof of the other car still in there (usually a bad thing), however the SUV stayed on its side rather than its roof so I was able to make the jump. I lost 5 health after jumping on the car. Note: Don't jump too far or Tommy will roll straight off the car and into the water.

This is by far the best method of discovering the other side early. The quickest spot to 'dock' the boat is Vice Port, near the large blue container ship. Once you get out of the gate, there's an Uzi across the road next to a parked van.

Edit: Um, that was a year and a half old bump, hotwheels83...

There is no "best" way-- just different ways...

If there were a "best" way, it would definitely be the one I discovered back in Jan 03... tounge.gif

P.S. I've already discussed the thread bumping with hotwheels

Well thanks, Captain Obvious.

However, you do kind of approach it the way I do. I've never really bothered much with going to the other side early in VC, because the whole map does become accessible fairly early in the game compared to GTA3 or San Andreas. The only reason I really see for going over there before then is to get all the hidden packages for all the pickups at the hotel. Others may want to do it just because they can colgate.gif

To access the 2nd island takes about 30 minuites of gameplay if your taking your time, you have to do about eleven or twelve fairly simple missions. Or as soon as you open the Diaz strand just do them, his missions are fairly easy.

It's exactly nine-

Ken Rosenberg
"The Party"
"Back Alley Brawl"
"Jury Fury"
"Riot"
Colonel Juan Cortez
"Treacherous Swine"
"Mall Shootout"
"Guardian Angels"
Ricardo Diaz
"The Chase"
"Phnom Penh '86"

Also, as soon as you finish the mission Guardian Angels, drive straight to the gates leading up to starfish Island and you'll see the gates open as you as you exit the vehicle. Which, as most may now know, only takes seven missions to unlock.

For a full list of ways to access restricted areas before schedule, check out my guide; here.
