Anyone know where it is? I've heard rumors there is a full interior that hasn't been used in Rotterdam, between Onion and another street. If you find it, please use the snap map so we can all see it. I'm going to look for it right now.

Yes, I heard it could be that place. Is that not Luis' house? I mostly play TLAD now and I have a very bad recollection of GTA IV.

It can't be Luis's house because it's Lyle Rivas's house.
It's like Will Ferrel sharing a house with Russel Crowe. There's no reason.

What about the apartment where you kill Teddy Benavidaz? The Northwood Dominican drugdealers (which Luis is a part of) operates from these apartmens.

That has just raised a very good question in my head. If we do infact, run things from the apartments then I wonder if the lift will be operational in single player now? I know I honestly couldn't care less because I love that building, but I can see how it could become an annoyance having to climb that big ass flight of stairs every time I want to go and do a mission for Teddy (if there are any missions for Teddy that is). Something tells me that I'm not going to be alone here.

Sorry for hi-jacking but I didn't feel this warranted making a new thread.

EDIT: Warranted? Is that even a word? ...It sounded right in my head biggrin.gif

SECOND EDIT: Actually, scratch this whole post. The problem could EASILY be solved by simply placing the mission icon outside of the projects. Duhhhh! cryani.gif

A few months back I've heard the possible location of Luis Safehouse. It is located on the upper left corner of middle park. The building is enterable and it have unique golden door that is quite detailed.

There are plenty of buildings with doors like that dude. Sorry to say but chances are that that won't be Luis' safehouse smile.gif

i dont think luis safe house will be enterable by niko, just like the lost clubhouse, and johnnys second safehouse.
you also cant access nikos safehouses as johnny.

There was speculation that Luis would reside in some building with a Dominican Glag hang from it. And yes I forgot the location.

Just for the record, you can actually enter one of Niko's safehouses (Bohan) through a back-entrance. But I understand what you mean.

I dunno - one thing (this is purely speculation) is that in "Ivan the terrible", if you spare Ivan, he later shows up as a random character. His random mission leads you to none other than the alleyway beside the Lost M.C clubhouse, where we can save our game. In TLAD, if you spare brian, you have to follow him(in the same fashion you have to drive Ivan) to the car park beside the location shown in the video.

It would be pure luck to find the right building. If you look at Johnny's 2nd safehouse as Niko it's just another low-detail unused building, doesn't even have the back door. I don't think anybody at Rockstar was working on TLAD assets until after IV was done or on TBOGT assets until TLAD was done.

I'd be surprised if Luis' apartment is in one of the buildings that's already enterable, just because none of Nikos or Johnny's safehouses reused those "cloned" stairwells that are all over the city. For artistic reasons I'm sure new safehouses will be 100% new and unique interiors, not a room stuck on an existing one.

Niko's safehouse interiors exist in TLAD and are inaccessible because: Broker is burned and the only door is locked, Bohan's front door is locked (but the back door is open, a bug that also allows Niko to get in early), Middle Park East's only entrance is an elevator marker, Northwood also requires an elevator marker but is accessible from the roof, and Alderney has only one door that is locked.

I hope TBOGT includes all TLAD details and interiors, even if they're locked it should be possible to tell that they're there (window in Johnny's 2nd safehouse, etc.). There's no good reason to go back to the "incomplete" IV versions. I wonder if the disc version of Episodes might add TBOGT's details and interiors to TLAD. They'd be locked but then both games would use the identical map.

Going by The Lost Clubhouse and Johnny's second safehouse, it is Likely that Luis's House:

Will Be Inaccessable to Johnny and Niko

Will have Parking Outside

Will be inconspicuous but have certain details that show it is his house. (The Way The Clubhouse had The Lost M.C. logo on it).


It could be in Teddy's Building... Maybe on the Floor where the working Lift is to avoid having to walk up and down stairs to get in and out. This building is accessible though and is featured in Niko's story so that goes against one of the conditions so I don't really know.

I know that thiers this place uptown that is across the street from MODO that looks real nice. It even has an internor from the looks of it. That said I think that's his house.

Spare Brian? I wasn't aware that was an option. During the mission where you attack his house, he escapes out the back and you chase him down. There's no execution, cut scene or anything, you just have to kill him. Have I missed something?

Yes. If you decide not to throw a grenade threw his window you can enter the house through the back door and make your way up to brian's bedroom where you can either kill him or spare him. If you spare him you meet him later as a random character.

I'm sure that's a cinema judging by the film posters inside it.

Your leg does glitch through the doors, so it has obviously been written in at some point - either test code or it was dropped as a location?

I hope Luis somehow ends up with that rundown Mansion where you find the Sultan RS. Except in this DLC it is completely fixed back up, and its able to be bought, or Luis kills the guy who owns it, and it becomes his, or Gay Tony fixes it up for him and gives him it.

Most of the bildings in TLAD maltiplayer are enterable and if you play just the first mission in TLAD the Broker safe house is enterable. Also the cool thing is that you can save cars in TLAD at Niko's safe houses. I think that TBOGT will not have the Bildings from Johnnys story because if you think of it you are buying the models twice.

But The Ballad of Gay Tony takes place at the same time as vanilla-GTA IV (maybe even ending before Niko's story). How would they explain that the mansion was run-down and abandoned in Niko and Johnny's story, only to be completely refurbished and done-up in Luis'? dontgetit.gif

We don't know when Luis' story ends. It could very well extend past Niko's story to wrap things up. That said, I still doubt we'll see a refurbished mansion/casino.

I found another enterable building a little farther north.
Although it could just be the building where Jeff was supposed to have lived.

Which MODO? Can someone elaborate please? Ive also heard of an unenterable interior near a clothing store that you can see into and see elevators moving... is this the same place?

Also, theres an interior in the vanilla GTAIV near one of the Star Junction construction sites that blocks the entire road... its near the Vinewood Bar & Grill and you can see people inside of this lobby, but you cant enter, i dont remember this in any missions.. What is it?

That's what I originally thought it was, but I dont remember seeing a lobby in the UL Paper missions..

And I saw the building by Modo, It looks like a movie theater or something.. very intriguing.

Also, across from the East Holland Police Station, near the northeast corner of Middle Park, There's a big apartment tower that has real estate signs on it.. it has a wraparound glass-enclosed lobby that you can see into. It looks unfinished and is mostly empty except for a few boxes. I wonder what this is?
