I can't remember exactly where i saw it, but i think it was in game informer magazine, I saw a picture of niko driving a monster truck.
I think it was when the game was in the preview stages. I remember that because after i saw that one particular image,
i preordered the game. My favorite thing to do in any gta is mofidy vehicles and collect them, pretty much exclusively. I haven't found it yet.
(and yes, i do remember the one from san andreas, and it wasn't that one)

It's hard to shrink pictures in paint, I've tried another good program, but you have to pay after a while; and it kept the pictures in good quality no matter how small.

I """""BOUGHT"""" (note the heavy quotation marks) my Photoshop for """"FREE""" from the """INTERNET""". GIMP's similar to Photoshop, I'd suggest you try that and it's free.

cookie.gif Cheers, I'll have to check out.

You can reduce image sizes on photobucket. It's really easy for me.

I use ImageShack, which only lets you rotate them, bloody bastards! lol.gif

Anybody remember the sledgehammer? The guy using a sledge on the subway track or something. Whatever happened to that?

He's still in (just actually wearing a builder's uniform this time). You'll see him near construction sites and roadworks (there is also a guy with a pickaxe and another with a spanner).

I was disappointed by the Bank of Liberty and the Liberty Ferry changes, I was looking forward to visiting both places in the game.

I liked the old nostalgic feel to the liberty Ferry dock, and the uniqueness of the Liberty city bank dome.

You can still go in the Bank Of Liberty, by using the glitch where you spawn half a car (or bike) in the wall, so when you get in, you fall into the interior. What I highlighted (the dome) can not be seen from the inside, but if you go to the roof you will see it has got significantly worse.

Love mods, for the Sims 2 aswell (hey; don't judge). I've always wanted to get into modding myself, but I'm always busy (*sigh*), I tried starting with the Sims 2 modeling, and I found it easy but the program I used was really crap, and you couldn't rely on it for sh*t.

Yes, I've actually done this before, but it was still a disappointment. It was nothing like the trailer. The interior worlds essentially still exist, that's why there are no real windows inside of buildings, the game doesn't actually show the outside universe to conserve memory for the interior itself.

I made a topic JUST LIKE THIS and it died in less then 24 hours! You forgot beta Niko. Some of the cars in earlier screenshots didn't have the brand of the car (ex. Albany, Ferroci...).

You people act so shocked when a game is different than the early builds. You're so shocked that things have changed and have been cut out in a game...

You should have upped .png or .gif versions of these pictures, the .jpg format creates tons of artifacts on the pictures and around the text. turn.gif

Never new that; I've always thought JPEG was better, due to the fact most things use it when it comes to pictures.

@GTA_dog: I've already highlighted, that I didn't put in Niko's (slight) change because it has been documented well already; but as people keep asking about it, then I might put it in. Oh, and can you give me the pics with the BETA cars?

EDIT: Updated, with Special thanks to those who have given contributions to the list noted. Note: It may take time to load up some of the pic(s) first time icon14.gif .

I just noticed this, look at the white sedan in the background. I don't remember that car being in the game, It almost looks like an early version of the Marbelle.

Sorry, only had paint at the time; but I now have paint.net which is good at shrinking images. The only ones I believe that are completely un-viewable are the graphic images, which I have given enlarged versions of on page2.

I will update these, but I can't see the first thumbnail and when I click the link, it won't load; this is why I hate ImageShack (even though I use it). But once ImageShack stops being such a p*ssy about everything, I will update the list.

If you could link me to the images separately off of gta4.net or something; it would be appreciated.
