Well that's one person (read slamman's quote carefully).
And your original quote sounded like it meant various (group of) people said it.

But hey, I'm not saying your lying. Just that the thread as whole is about reminding people what was in the game and not what we want in the DLC.

The pic in the GRAPHICS section with the guy who was crossing the street and the taxi van, that picture got me really hyped for the game, it looked so real, but in the final version it doesnt look at all like that, the lack of people in this game upset me.

The "beta" version is much cooler than the final.

Even tough some members posting here didn't mention it in this topic, they mentioned it in other topics
that's why I referred to a group of persons, already told you, it's enough to browse missing features
or DLC related topics to notice people think that way.

I know this is the beta version you are presenting and I don't know why people think R* will make the DLC
with features from it.

Neither do I. Apparently R* made/are making the DLC after the game's release. So if any of the highlighted is in the game, it is because the 'fans' wanted it and not because they took it out for the DLC.

I dont think they were going to have Ferrys or those flying rats in the game.. because that picture of the ferry terminal is still there and so are the invincible seagulls flying around it.. I think Gaming Editors saw that from the first trailer and just assumed it and wrote it into their previews.



Don't get mad at Rockstar for lying.. because they did not.

Be mad at them for not including it if you want but they are not the ones who lied about stuff being in the games.

Yellow Tie on Tuxedo

I don't think this tuxedo on this screen shown below has been on the final version of the game. As you can see, the tie was yellow in the BETA stages. Click.

Store not in Final Game

JR. Ray's and J.I.M are not in the final game. Click.

No license plates and untextured window Taxi Depot.

Click.

Different colored walls on XXX Shop

In the BETA stages, the XXX shop had a gray color with torned up walls. Now, it has a different color with different lightings. Click.

Different Tracksuit on Niko

In this BETA Screenshot, Niko is seen wearing a red white and blue tracksuit. Click.

Did the original Helitours copters not have their logo? Because they lose it half way in the video.

EDIT: Also, the Annihalator originally didn't have it's yellow stripe.

Look at the back, it was always un-ridable. They obviously used a debug to put a Sabre up on it. And the Helitours Picture is from an advert from the in-game TV.

This was either a different type of taxi available in the beta or this is a beta version of Roman's Taxi. Taken from the Vlad Glebov video.

OMFG! How did we miss a Black Taxi!? Awesome find cookie.gif . And does that Johnson's place look different as well?

EDIT: UPDATED . There some other things in the Vlad trailer I think I haven't seen before, but I'll have to check 'em out first.

I'm sure I found something in a trailer the other day, this is for scripted events. So pedestrians were throwing molotovs. I will try and find the trailer it was on YouTube.
Got it!

Also,

Did the tugboat use to drive around in the water?

Tugs still drive around, not so much though.

You forgot to add the closed helicopter doors btw..

There's quite a few scripted events I've seen. I have been planning to update that section for some time; and sorry to Delano.888 about forgetting. I actually remembered, but then I forgot as I was using my relatives PC, and for some reason - what would've took me 5-10mins on my computer, took an hour on theirs; and I obviously forgot over all my frustration. lol.gif

I might get to this Saturday as I'm free then.

Found some minor stuff.

BETA Statue of Happiness. Less detailed and originally had red-bricked corners.

At about 0:16 in the clip. People aren't arrested like this in the final version.


I have a few more but I need to confirm them.

About the vehicles section:

'Not in Game' looks like one of the cars from Bully mixed with the front of a Marbelle and Back of Esperanto.

Black Taxi could of been one of Roman's, maybe he was initially going to have multiple cabs not just Esperanto's and Cavalcades.

Sorry if any of the above has been mentioned, I skipped to the last page to add this reply.
