So...I happened to be going back thru the storyline...I'm going to try and do things from a different angle this time since I have already been thru the story 2 other times...anyway, last time I went thru the story and now this time thru I have noticed little oddities about some of the mission cars.

I'm at the point in the game now where I am still on the 1st Island...killed Vlad and all that jazz but have yet to go to meet Dimitri b/c I dont want to venture to the Bohan safehouse and all those missions just yet. I was doing the deliveries for Jacob again and during one of the drops where you "hide" the delivery instead of handing it to another person...and a rival gang knows about your drop and they come to try and kill you...well two of the guys got out of a Futo...two got out of something else (unimportant) they all perished and I went for the Futo...

...much to my surprise it was silver/gray and it was a Futo GT...which I had only ever seen in Red w/ Black Wheels and in Bohan...but this was silver and in Broker! What was also odd was it says Futo GT in the front grille and has the c/f hood but it does not have the lip spoiler on the trunk...it is spoilerless like the regular non-GT Futo dontgetit.gif

later during the storyline when you are working for Jimmy P you will end up using a PMP600 that is black and it looks from the front to be the normal PMP...has the stock grille but it has the rear spoiler...like the modded PMP600 that cruises around westdyke...but that PMP w/ spoiler has the custom grille dontgetit.gif

Why would rockstar take the time to make variants of these vehicles for missions? seems to me like it would have been easier just to respray the Futo GT instead of having a spoiler delete or just use the modded model PMP600 for the Jimmy P missions...but what do I know?!?

I'll post some pics later if I have time of the Futo...I stored it at my safehouse b/c I assumed there would be ppl that would call BS until I showed otherwise.

-XS

PS - I do have to thank rockstar though...without these little oddities I would be w/o my favorite ingame car...the Sultan you have to get for stevie in southwestern Alderney...the blue one with the black wheels...definately my fav car

i don't know, mabey these mission cars where done earl on and the cars where reworked later on in the game, there are lots of unique colours for cars that you only get in missions, but the only ''variant'' i've seen is the emperor at the end of paper trail missions which has a different grill and rims and it's in mettalic maroon!

They're just modded cars. You can find them while not in missions.
There's the Intruder, Futo, Sultan, Hakumai, and a lot lot more.

Not no more I ain't. tounge.gif

Well I'm not sure about the PMP, but sometimes you can find modded cars with special colors on the street. The upgraded PMP I found was black.

Also, yeah, I know what you mean. There are special colors for vehicles in missions. Like one where you have to escort some guy in a convoy of 3 Lokuses you can get a special, completely dark black Lokus. The normal black for Lokuses isn't anywhere near as dark.

thats not what i'm talking about...i'm talking about what MaineGD17 said...cavalcade w/ black rims...there was a maroon one u stole for brucie that had black rims 2 but u cannot i repeat CANNOT find a cavalcade on the street w/ black rims...only from brucie and from the playboy x mission...

this was the only futo GT i've ever seen this way...never paid attention to the cars used by the gang members during the jacob deliveries before so it was a little bit of a surprise for me. i'll go get a pic right now and end this confusion....back shortly if my camera co-operates

here are the pics:

Cavalcade (dark red w/ black rims from Brucie email car theft mission)

Futo GT w/o rear spoiler - car was not resprayed this color this is the way I acquired it
http://i321.photobucket.com/albums/nn377/SentinelXS/futogt1.jpg

Sultan - reg 4-door (bright blue w/ black wheels - stevie car theft request vehicle)
http://i321.photobucket.com/albums/nn377/SentinelXS/sultan1.jpg

...those are just a few among the many i have noticed throughout the game but the Futo is what made me write the thread b/c from a vehicle editing stand-point it would just be easier to use the already finished in game futo gt...the black rim thing is easy 2 do by changing a few things on the paint image that the car is mapped to...but adding or removing parts takes actual time....i used to make 3-d vehicle models for PC games a while back just for fun to use in games like GTA 3 and 4x4 Evolution

so i relaunched my GTA career the other day...wiped my PS3 clean of GTAIV and started fresh....so anyway i was going back thru the missions much like i just did a week or so ago and got the Futo GT i already mentioned again from the jacob deliveries...this time it was white w/ the black lower trim and black wheels but still had no spoiler and then i went on one of the final deliveries and got an Intruder...what i thought to be the modded intruder VX that you find in chinatown that has the bodykit....

well it was that car minus the spoiler and VX badging (i guess b/c the badging is on the spoiler and since the spoiler was missing so was the VX badge)...its still just a strange concept to me to take the time to do this instead of just using a reg Futo GT or reg Intruder VX...makes me CRAZY! lol kidding

-XS

PS - On another thread Pat said he got a modded version of the Rancher...in the 2nd derick mcreary mission "babysitting" where you escort that korean guy Kim in the boat...the guys are loading crates in the back and he said when the mission ends you can retrieve the truck and it has not only the rollbar w/ lights in the bed but also something on the front ( a grille guard although im not sure which one) i had no luck w/ this as the truck was not there after beating the mission several times and was wondering if anyone else had luck with this or has this vehicle?

this one was interesting to get,
you need to call brucie for a heli ride (or boat ride SORRY i dont remember)
and show up with a taxi, then get into his house on foot

when the 3 come out a car will appear for you all to drive, this is that car.

I noticed these things too SentinelXS. I'm on my second trip through the game as well thanks to Sony Wiping my 100% games save.

Anyway, that Futo GT was the first one I noticed as well. The silver almost looks chrome, so I kept the car. I like it without the spoiler. I've tried painting other Futo GT's to get that color and can't. Although there are some realluy sharp colors you can paint a futo GT that you can't paint a regular Futo.

I've noticed a lot this time around that I didn't have time to notice the first time through. Like the sign when you exit the subway on Three Leaf Clover that reads "Emergency Exit, If locked, shoot to open". Or simple things like being able to advance to any weapon you want without scrolling through them all.

yeah that is Brucie's Huntley Sport. This appears when you go powerboating. You dont have to do anything special to get it...just call him to go powerboating or if he calls you to go just show up...he will drive you and the ladies to the dock and get in the boat...after the activity it is always sitting at the top of the stairs by the dock...its kinda cool b/c it is a special paintjob and its nice to get a decent vehicle from hanging out with your friend...every time!

i have been noticing this odd vehicle thing more and more lately since i made the clean start on the game...like i decided to keep Michelle/Karen's car...her Merit...the one from your 1st date with her...it is a silver color that reflects reddish pink in the light...like pearl paint in real life. i also came across a pearl Patriot when doing one of playboy's missions...the one where he sends you to the courts to take the photo of the guy he wants killed...after the guy was dead their Patriot is left by the courts and it was a silver looking patriot that reflected a bluish color in the light. all these things are kind of neat if you think about it and actually take the time to notice it.

cool info, i hardly go boating with brucie (i just want his damn special ability lol),
i also noticed that Dwayne's crew, often drive up with unusual vehicles.

some cars ive never seen with black rims, have black rims,
and also they drove up to me in a red, american flag patriot

edit: also in another random mission from Faustin's wife,
this is sitting outside near the boardwalk

i think thats is one of the best looking pcj600's in the game but it is achieveable via the pay-n-spray...or just look for one on the street as you drive...nothing special there...i have noticed the pcj's have several variations suck as a single gauge on the handlebars and sometimes 2 gauges....sometimes they have mirrors and sometimes they dont....sometimes they have a side exhaust like a normal bike and sometimes it comes out of the rear under the fender...single outlet and dual outlet...sometimes a license plate sometimes none....they really went to town on this bike and its variations...lol GO ROCKSTAR...now why cant they do that with more vehicles mercie_blink.gif

That Sultan you could actually find driving around. When you drive around in the normal Sultan in Algonquin, eventually a light blue 4 door Sultan will spawn. It'll have a Sultan RS-like bodykit and black-yellow mix rims. If you take it to a pay-n-spray, the rims turn silver and you will never be able to get the blue again. Some of them have spoilers, some don't, some have different hoods, some don't. I'll see if I can post a pic of the one I'm talking about (one in my parking space)

Once Again, the Blue 4-door modded Sultan is not a mission vehicle, just a rare to find car

Once Again, the Blue 4-door modded Sultan is not a mission vehicle, just a rare to find car

how i wish ppl would research their rants before posting...if and i do mean IF you actually pay attention to detail you will find that the Sultan from Stevie...the one pictured is actually a different color blue than the standard Sultan found driving the streets of LC...this Sultan is more of a bright sapphire blue like a WR blue mica subaru impreza...the Sultans found in traffic are more of a light blue and a different shade than the Stevie one....not to mention the black rims...never saw that on a traffic sultan that has 4 doors.

as for your comment on the Sultan w/ a spoiler you will notice that is a gang vehicle...it has a different hood scoop/vent than a reg 4 door sultan...has a lower ground effects kit and huge racerboy rear wing like a mitsu lancer evo/subaru impreza sti....and it has gold rims....all characteristic of that "gang/modded" car found only in Alderney.....along w/ the modded/gang Presidente w/ different grille and rear spoiler.......which is very much different than the car i posted pics of....... sigh.gif things shouldnt have to be this way they really shouldnt.

Neonspinnazz i issue you a challenge....find me a "traffic" Sultan 4 door in bright blue w/ black wheels and you cannot go retrieve the parked one from Stevie's text message....i have been playing this game almost daily since release date and never in my travels have i come across this car but via that text message...if i am wrong i will apologize and gracefully admit defeat....but i need proof.

hello sentinal XS,

No...actually...they are quite common and is a gang car that can be found in 2 different locations...they can be found in the northern part of Alderney...Westdyke and they can also be found in the southern section of Algonquin in little italy...along w/ the gang/modded PMP600 that has the custom grille and rear spoiler.

It was my fav car at the time when i created my username and i couldnt think of anything better so i used it and since i have changed my opinion slightly...although it is ONE of my fav cars it is not my number 1....that would have to go to either the Vincent or Sultan.

Neonspinnazz i want to show u some additional pics of the Sultan in question so there is no confusion....so here:

I found the rare blue 4 door Sultan with the bodykit (not the Stevie mission one) but mine has black rims, not yellow/green. I've not sprayed it yet, just kept it at my safehouse for the time being.

The mission cars are not really too much hassle for R* to do, they are just spawned using the SCM script to control the extra parts, I can do the same with SA.
It is nice however to see extra varients used during missions and it tempts me to start over and see how many I can find, I never took much notice till reading this topic.

lol, i thought i settled this.. anyways as sentinel and the other guy say the gang cars are the modded ones and they're not technically rare, they just spawn at specific times and places (sultan is korean gang car found near your safehouse in alderny, the intruder is found in fishmarket south, the futo gt in baywater etc...) these are cars from in missions which are slightly different to both the ordinary and modded versions of those cars... not that big a deal but yeah it's because the cars in the game where all reworked after all the missions were organised and someof them have kept their old (gang car) look

...those are just a few among the many i have noticed throughout the game but the Futo is what made me write the thread b/c from a vehicle editing stand-point it would just be easier to use the already finished in game futo gt...the black rim thing is easy 2 do by changing a few things on the paint image that the car is mapped to...but adding or removing parts takes actual time....i used to make 3-d vehicle models for PC games a while back just for fun to use in games like GTA 3 and 4x4 Evolution

That Sultan you could actually find driving around. When you drive around in the normal Sultan in Algonquin, eventually a light blue 4 door Sultan will spawn. It'll have a Sultan RS-like bodykit and black-yellow mix rims. If you take it to a pay-n-spray, the rims turn silver and you will never be able to get the blue again. Some of them have spoilers, some don't, some have different hoods, some don't. I'll see if I can post a pic of the one I'm talking about (one in my parking space)

Once Again, the Blue 4-door modded Sultan is not a mission vehicle, just a rare to find car

how i wish ppl would research their rants before posting...if and i do mean IF you actually pay attention to detail you will find that the Sultan from Stevie...the one pictured is actually a different color blue than the standard Sultan found driving the streets of LC...this Sultan is more of a bright sapphire blue like a WR blue mica subaru impreza...the Sultans found in traffic are more of a light blue and a different shade than the Stevie one....not to mention the black rims...never saw that on a traffic sultan that has 4 doors.

as for your comment on the Sultan w/ a spoiler you will notice that is a gang vehicle...it has a different hood scoop/vent than a reg 4 door sultan...has a lower ground effects kit and huge racerboy rear wing like a mitsu lancer evo/subaru impreza sti....and it has gold rims....all characteristic of that "gang/modded" car found only in Alderney.....along w/ the modded/gang Presidente w/ different grille and rear spoiler.......which is very much different than the car i posted pics of....... sigh.gif things shouldnt have to be this way they really shouldnt.

Neonspinnazz i issue you a challenge....find me a "traffic" Sultan 4 door in bright blue w/ black wheels and you cannot go retrieve the parked one from Stevie's text message....i have been playing this game almost daily since release date and never in my travels have i come across this car but via that text message...if i am wrong i will apologize and gracefully admit defeat....but i need proof.

Gladly, be back soon.... oh also does anybody know how to get the Futo GT w/o LJ's mission? I got to the mission mentioned, but the guys came out of a normal Futo. I finished all of his deliveries while closely watching for Futos in general. I only found it on that mission but it was just a normal Futo. I think some mission cars run on a random spawner.

Here we go. I found these 2 cars on the street, non-gang, but both 2 different Asian drivers?

Here's mine: found in algonquin
http://i532.photobucket.com/albums/ee323/N...zz/100_2178.jpg (http://i532.photobuc...zz/100_2178.jpg) (http://i532.photobuc...zz/100_2178.jpg) (http://i532.photobuc...zz/100_2178.jpg)

Here's the Sultan I used to look for it:
http://i532.photobucket.com/albums/ee323/N...zz/100_2179.jpg (http://i532.photobuc...zz/100_2179.jpg) (http://i532.photobuc...zz/100_2179.jpg) (http://i532.photobuc...zz/100_2179.jpg)

This guy was crossing the bridge from Algonquin to Alderney
http://i532.photobucket.com/albums/ee323/N...zz/100_2180.jpg (http://i532.photobuc...zz/100_2180.jpg) (http://i532.photobuc...zz/100_2180.jpg) (http://i532.photobuc...zz/100_2180.jpg)

This one I found in Alderney
http://i532.photobucket.com/albums/ee323/N...zz/100_2185.jpg (http://i532.photobuc...zz/100_2185.jpg) (http://i532.photobuc...zz/100_2185.jpg) (http://i532.photobuc...zz/100_2185.jpg)

Same car in Alderney different angle
http://i532.photobucket.com/albums/ee323/N...zz/100_2184.jpg (http://i532.photobuc...zz/100_2184.jpg) (http://i532.photobuc...zz/100_2184.jpg) (http://i532.photobuc...zz/100_2184.jpg)

Note: they spawn occasionally in Algonquin but they spawn a lot in Alderney.

OTHER NOTE: You must be driving a un-modded Sultan 4-door to find it.

P.S. the hoods on the modded one comes in 2 variations, the one you saw in my pics, and a simple scoop like the one in your pic.

I've also found out that the black rimmed version is only obtainable by Stevie's messages. As the one I collected back in June had the bodykit of the cars above but had black rims....

So in a way you are right about the rims, but as for the bodykit, easily found
so I'd say it's a tie Cookie for you and me cookie.gif cookie.gif

OFF TOPIC: You should have gotten the game on release night, Free Mode was PACKED!! biggrin.gif

Alright 1st let me say i'm a little confused what you are arguing here...my post was about mission car oddities not gang cars...i was commenting on the bright blue sultan 4 door w/ black wheels from the stevie text message only...so im not sure why u went off on some tangent about the Korean gang sultan w/ rear wing and modded hood....that has me confused.....what also has me confused is that you are giving me a cookie for my find but also rewarding urself w/ a cookie for.....well for what exactly? the sultan in blue w/ black rims is rare....the korean gang car is not....you merely have to be in the right place 2 find it. keep in mind that not all modded/gang cars will be driven by gangsters toting guns....they are still the gangs chosen vehicle but normal ppl can be driving them...i have come across many a modded schafter which everyone knows is a russian gang car w/ a woman or older man driving it and when u aim they dont get out shooting back.

never saw one in algonquin only around the safehouse in alderney

thats not true...i have turned my PS3 on and loaded a gamesave where i last saved in alderney walked out on the street and literally bumped into one right in front of my safehouse and other than that i have been driving other cars and had them spawn...i will admit like with any vehicle in a rockstar GTA game if you are driving the reg version of a car the alternates will probably spawn more quickly and more frequently...like the Futo GT...its there anyway but happens way more when driving a reg futo....same w/ the modded Hakumai that EVERYONE calls one of the rarest cars in the game.....thats crap i can get you one in under 5 mins.

lastly...

i have played thru the game 3x since i purchased it...1st time i was overwhelmed by the game and everything that was going on around me...didnt pay much attention but time 2 and 3 i was paying attention to detail...it was the whole reason for playing the game again....both times i cared to notice the opposing gang that shows up on one of the deliveries had a futo...i stole it to notice it had the C/F hood like the GT....it had the GT badge in the grille but it was a weird color...next time thru....time no.3 same thing happened but this time the color was different but it was still the GT.........each time the car looked like the reg futo GT....modded hood, red racing seat, etc.....but they lacked the little C/F rear trunk spoiler that the Albanian gang Futo GT has that can be found in Bohan.

yeah its going to be a special color scheme not attainable via pay-n-spray...unlike the coquette w/ red stripe and huntley sport w/ red stripe the infernus does not normally have those side stripes like the bernie gift car...guess if you want it bad enuf ull have to restart and not respray it next time

I didnt want to start a new topic for this but did anyone else notice the Toyota Corolla reference on the back of the ambulance? As if the Futo itself wasnt enough of a corolla reference to make ppl think the editors at rockstar might like the little car here is something i spotted:

http://i321.photobucket.com/albums/nn377/S...XS/ae-86ref.jpg (http://i321.photobuc...XS/ae-86ref.jpg)

notice how it says "AE-86-4AG"........classic.
