| small you say? hmm i always though it was the opposite, the more cars in there the more chance it would disappear. |
As I understand, the cars are prone to disappearing when you speed by them/ fly over them, garage starts to open, but you are so fast that the cars dont have time to load completly before you out of this zone. Doherty garage is the most dangerous in that regard as it is very close to the main road.
Anyway, is my plythroughs I allways tryed to have 4 vehicles in every garage, if garage was too small I aded bike or two, to have full 4 vehicles inside, and never lost even sigle one of them. At least on PC, cannot say anything about consoles, as I never owned such.
Sure, one can check each garage after every save, but when you have unlocked the entire map it can get really irritating.
Believe it or not?
I have one for you guys that I have no footage of.....but I swear it is true.
In Ganton at CJ Mother's House, I had a jacker come in and steal one of my cars right in front of me while I was exchanging vehicles, once about two years ago. The experience was a particular feeling that I get and rember in each of VC and SA when it takes place.
I can remember each and every time I have been jacked, the memory is one that has some mental sentiments that ring clearly in my mind."Why you little....bastard....Soo YOU THINK that you can just come up into my garage and JACK one of MY CARS!"
"Oh, you think your going to.....eh?"
"I am going to hurt you..."
"Who is the King of San Andreas?"
"You'd try and rob me?"
All of these at one time or another have crossed my mind at the time of a car jacking and one of those, the first one listed, is the one I thought that day.
My point is simple, there may be a gliche/accidental or random generator that "looses" a certain vehicle similar to the way it "forgets a paintjob" but there may also be another factor as well. It may, just as I have experienced and spoke of here, be a regular occurrence that when the vehicles have the garage open that if a jacker is near then he just takes advantage of the situation. Those guys at R* are pretty clever bunch and you can't tell me that one of them didn't think of that. It's like poetic justice that a circumstance would permit the ultimate criminal/anti-hero get his car jacked right out of his garage.
Or at least that is what I tell myself. So, I just play CJ like any other mastermind paranoid criminal whom loves his personal vehicle collection. I check the garages like I am checking out my security systems between jobs. Both missions and unique vehicle via said mission of whatever type are jobs by my reasoning.
Seriously, check your garages after each mission and follow the instructions that I have left you. It is the best way to run your method and it really does keep a tight lid on your collection.
