Sunset seems like a great time to do Uncle Vlad, but I just wanted to ask about the TLAD credits.† I went back and re-watched them on youtube and it seems like every mission they show is at/around sunset.† I always assumed they just picked a time of day and used it throughout the credit sequence as opposed to them being a reliable guide to what time of day a mission takes place.† I could be wrong, and Uncle Vlad seems to work great at that time, I guess I just want to bring this up to see whether the credits can be used as a reliable marker for mission times later in the game...
sorry if i'm being too anal here...
Yeah you're right man, it seems they do all take place at sundown. However, like I said with Uncle Vlad, Roman seems to have just ended his shift while Vlad has his usual sit-down with a couple of men at Comrads whom I'm assuming go there at night whereas Vlad seems to hangout there all day. So therefore I think it would be fitting at sundown either way but from here on I guess we don't use the credits as a reliable source.
Here's Crime and Punishment to It's War:Crime and Punishment: Late-Afternoon
This could likely take place a day after Uncle Vlad. Like MOB stated earlier, Roman could have been followed from work, maybe perhaps after his shift was done and he was on his way home. By the time you end up in the basement it should be night time just before midnight so Ilyena would be watching perhaps some prime time television while Faustin and Dimitri hang out after the day is done. The vans could be operating at night as well to avoid suspicion I suppose.Do You Have Protection? Morning to Early Afternoon
This could easily take place weekday or weekend. Faustin and Dimitri would have their little squabble while the guys at the porn shop just lay back and enjoy some nice "titties" as Roman puts it. Just feels like a sort of "just another day in Liberty City" kind of mission.Shadow: Noon
This has that sort of same feeling as Do You Have Protection. Little Jacob and Badman just lazifying about as Niko takes a casual visit, therefore probably works best during the day weekday or weekend.Final Destination: Evening
Seeing how Faustin's at the club, many would probably assume this takes place in the evening, probably when the club is most busy which it seems to be. Plus it doesn't contrast the Petrovic being at the train station at night either so it probably works either weekday or weekend. Clean and Serene: Early Morning
I guess it doesn't matter what day this takes place on and it's already set for morning so no biggie. Although maybe try to set it up a day before you do your next mission. It would probably be hard to line it up with Final Destination. So if you were to do C&S on a Wed. then do your next Niko mission on a Thurs.Logging On: Weekday, Late Afternoon/Early Evening
Romans at work as usual but he's leaving to go out with Brucie so again maybe his shift is done or he was working a few extra hours while Brucie waits around. Liberty City Choppers: Evening/Night
I would just think with the amount of gunfire at the parking lot without cops coming to bother you, Johnny and Jim would probably have an easier time with it at night time while the bent cops spot out the Angels of Death. Angels in America/
No Love Lost: Late Morning
I think this works well in the day even though there's a massive amount of gunfire on quite a large percentage of the city. Thing is there's a lot of bikers for them to track down. Plus I can see Billy chilling out during the day while the AOD visit him and crash his party. Plus, if Jason decides to leave for the pier around noonish then that would give Niko time to visit Faustin around mid-noon and chase down Jason around late afternoon which would give Jason enough time to head from North Holland to Firefly Island. I think it's obvious that these two missions should take place on the same day but slightly different times.Rigged to Blow: Weekday, Afternoon
I think this works best on a weekday as Ilyena would be up about in her house like a standard housewife and our victim would be working his garage before Niko blows it up. Bad Cop Drop: Evening or Night
I would think this is best suited at night, and maybe triggered when the Sun is still up. There's a lot of gunfire and it's a very intense mission and perhaps Jim could have been paranoid about the cops all day before finally meeting up with Johnny and doing something about it.The Master and the Molotov: Evening
Faustin again would likely be visiting his club at night, and when you see the news story on it in the Liberty Tree, it's a night time shot. You can perhaps trigger the sit-down with Dimitri just before the sun goes down as he says Faustin will be heading to the club in 3 hours.Russian Revolution: Evening/Night
Honestly this mission can be done anytime on any day, however, I think it works best at sundown (seems to be theme). Mainly because it's a lead up to Roman's Sorrow which would likely take place the following midnight or next morning because I don't think either Niko or Roman would waste too much time. Thus, maybe set it up from either Sunday to Thursday because Roman's Sorrow would work best on a Weekday...Roman's Sorrow: Weekday, Early Morning
I say early morning because Roman and Niko likely would have not slept plus Roman would take some time to drive off and hide out in the alleyway. Plus by the time you'd arrive at the new safe-house Malorie says she has to go to work so it could very well be a morning shift while Niko goes out and Roman hangs back as he no longer has a job. It's War: Same Day as Roman's Sorrow, Evening/Night
This has to be done at night because Billy states how David Grossman covers up his gnarly tattoos in the day and poses as a biker by night, so it's safe to assume that he's off the clock which would indicate that it's past five o'clock. And of course it should take place on the same day as Roman's Sorrow because of the news story that appears afterward.
