No, bikes weren't introduced until VC. VC, SA, LCS, VCS, and IV had them, but not III.

There are some motor bike mods on some of the modding sites, one of the best is the choppermod

Yes, only the chopper is the best bike modification for GTA 3 (and it's still buggy). All other just suck mad.gif

yeah i know, im usin for my lsot and damned mod and it requires such smooth turning and control, if not you go into a spazz.

what needs to be done is to have the orignal wheels of the diablo to remain in the right spot but have them turned seethrough but i dont think you can seperate the collisions to not react with cars and walls but remain stale with the ground

bugger im reply on a non modding site but ah wot the hell

allso i know somepeople thinks its dead but smadlad sent me a pm about his nrg for gta3, hes still workin on it so im hopin he does a good job
so youll want to look out for that one in the near future

Yeah but gta iii was (I think) rockstars first attempt at a fully 3d sandbox game. this was 1 of the key reasons why i switched my mod to sa, cos bike mods arent the best

yeah they made that before gta 3....but yes there were indeed bikes in gta 1..and london

last i heard there werent any bikes because of physics and coding problems so they didnt include them...dunno if thats true though. they even made an ingame excuss saying the mayor banned them in the city because they are too dangerous

bikes are mentioned in game code of pc and xbox versions of game so they made an attempt to release them, but abandoned along with multiplayer while porting game to pc.

Strings are remain plain in exe files - just open it with text editor and CTRL+F for 'bike' (or renane file to .txt first)

No, Motorbikes were banned in 2001 in Liberty City (which is the Year setting of GTA 3), but you can see Motorbikes in GTA LCS (Year 1998 which is 3 years before the events of GTA 3). that's the in-Game reason, but the real reason is because R* did'nt know how to program a Motorbikes in that time smile.gif check gta.wikia.com/Liberty_City_in_GTA_III_Era?useskin=oasis&cb=6694

please note that this is the Liberty City of GTA 3 Era and not the IV era (IV era is whole new different universe)

Just a bit of "trivia"-- the Map/insert with the GTA Liberty City Stories disk has a fake newspaper from liberty city-- in it there is an article on the banning of Motorcycles in Liberty city because they are too dangerous...

Just found this--- http://gta.wikia.com...y_Protest_Group

That report is also in my copy of the game manual. Will take a pic of it when I get home.

It is also mentioned don the radio IIRC.

9/11 can be the reason why Rockstar removed motorbikes from the game during it's development but also the reason can be they had coding problems.

1. 9/11 was NOT the reason game delays/feature removals/half-winged dodos, that is simply a MYTH made up by fans.
2. 9/11 had b]literally nothing[/b] to do with motorcycles, why would they be removed/not added?
3. To answer my question in the above statement: coding and time. Rockstar had to make the deadline for the release AND motorcycle coding in a 3D open world sandbox game at the time would have been near impossible.
