when playing GTAVC, I've seen many strange and unused places that make me think "what is the purpose of this sh*t?"
I have a big list of then, but right now, let's start with these:

This bridge's probably famous, I have no idea what is this for:

This building has a penthouse with a pool, never used:

and a render with Moo Mapper:

And these news-cuts in Forelli's Bistro:

what do you think about it?

The news are nothing special, just to make it look more interesting.
I've also wondered what the penthouse building might be...I think it was either used once in a mission, or they copied a real life building (like the colony hotel).
And the bridge is also very interesting...I think that area looks a bit different on the beta map.

I believ the one with the pool is used on a mission where you take pictures of Candy Suxx, and the marco's bistro was on the first intro cutscene and i guess the bridge is there for realism, maybe would be used for loading up ships or fishing?

everyone knows women are made of sand that Marco's Bistro is in the intro cutscene, and I don't think what's the realism in a bridge connecting nowhere to noplace

I never understood why that bridge is there. Well, it's better to cross the bridge to get to the other side then to go around.

I don't know what the bridge is for, but if I remember correctly it is located near where one of the missions takes place? I think I used it once to get away from people in Death Row. As for the building, I think it's just there because the other building across the road had the same idea, and that one was used for the Candy Suxxx mission and a Cortez mission. Maybe one of those two were supposed to be on the other building?

Nope, that bridge is not in any cutscene. If you notice, there's what looks like train tracks on it. They go for a while, before stopping at a building (in VCS, it's the storage facility where one of Phil's missions takes place, the one with the forklift).

Nope. That bridge, nor the tracks, were used for anything. They've remained the same. The only thing that's remotely changed in VCS is that the place where the tracks lead up to was now called "The Big Package Storage Facility," but they had no significance (they just stopped at the entrance).

There's a balloon somewhere under that bridge in 'Stories, that's all I know. I accidentally blew up a Cholo car on top of there before I actually started documenting the 99 balloons. As for the building with a pool on top of it, no idea.

I think the building with a pool had a hidden package on its top.

The package wasn't the reason for the pool. I'm sure that R* wanted to do something with that building but it didn't fit on one disc.

First of all, where in the world did you got the BETA version? (Tommy's clothes are different)

Second it has connections with VCS (although I don't have the console or the game I've saw some missions on some part of the game). Or something after "Scarface" movie.

It's just a skin, not a beta version.
And Rockstar didn't know about VCS when they made VC wink.gif

Really? Gee... I thought, when GTA VC was released, they made some discussions about future GTA and then they've made up with some backstory.

Heh... I guess the Houser brothers didn't knew they'll hit it hard and heavy...

They never knew what the next GTA's story was going to be, hence the small plot holes, like the one with Lazlow.

Nice idea for a Topic! cookie.gif

I can recommend checking that Wall at the start of the same, and
then after the final mission. Use a glitch to get past the roadblock.

I think the Penthouse is there simply because Rockstar wanted
to fill that space, so they just copied the other Penthouse.

Those news posters, I never knew it said Vercetti To Die.
Is it visible from the opening cutscene?

As for that little Red Bridge, Maybe it's something in Real Life Miami?

There's me thinking that the hole in the wall was there for just jumping over on a bike, or making it easier to just get from one place to another?

Guys, I think you are thinking too much about this. Just as Long Haired Freaky Guy said, its purpose is just allowing you to reach the other side more easily.

He thinks that this is like in GTA 4, where things change in time.
Actually that wall is the same from the beginning of the game.

What about in VCS? I don't have it as my own but I've played it. As I remember there wasn't any big holes in a wall. notify.gif

Let's put it this way: that mayor doesn't care for his city?
Seems that R* didn't made a well-planned scrypt in desighns and graphics.

Why would the mayor give a sh*t that some fence broke down. He is not in charge of it, the owners are. If someone breaks my fence I must fix it unless I find the author.

1st of all greetings to everybody here! smile.gif
Itīs been a while since I last posted here.

About the red bridge, then yes you can use it in Death Row and it can very much help you. You wait for the Cometīs to get closer and then speed over the bridge and then can happen that Diazīes men just drive down to the sea. And you can escape by driving over the bridge and drive away by the alley way.
