What happens to the subway train? Does it just disappear?

Nice one adamcs icon14.gif .
@Rag: Yes it does, as it starts to get out of view/viewing distance. But apparently if you're quick enough, you can get a Skylift with one.

No. It can't pick up vehicles. But as Jordan says... really? Really?

It's quite slow and heavy. Difficult to maneuver. I'll upload some general footage of it later.

You can not save it, as it is too big to park in any space, plus if you do get part of the helicopter in the space, it just dissapears when you go back to it. But at least we can retrieve it.

I am making the walkthrough guide right now. It is only in pictures though as i do not have a capture card, i will get one for xmas though. But it will be a down to the core guide on how to obtain it.

I think actual video evidence would be great, I think you should let adamcs do it mate, everyone is itching to see a proper video of it.

I'm gone for ONE F*CKING DAY, and this is what you guys come up with?! Holy sh*t, I need to leave the forums more often. But, is it possible to save? If its not, I don't see the point. Damn, I thought of this but was too lazy to try. Great job.

EDIT: Just saw above ^^^, Its pointless if you can't save it (IMO)

I hope this doesn't turn out to be a modded Xbox or something.

Still though, it's just the Skylift? What's the big deal?

Yeah, I got the email.

I'll definitely be adding this to the guide, both subway car and not versions. However it'll be in a later entry, as this will take some time to write up properly, and I have an update all ready to go tomorrow.

It flew away too fast. Then again, the autosave thing popped up, so maybe that made it disappear? I'm off to try again.

Thx.

Yeah, make sure it doesnt prompt you to autosave. So now I have to guide it to the ground? What exactly does that mean?

EDIT: got it on the ground, but the propeller broke suicidal.gif

Basically all you do is use your helicopter blades to push it in the direction you want it to go, use the buzzard seeing as it is easier to monuver and you can use your chainguns to shoot yusuf when he is above open ground, try going towards the airport, there is alot of space, but when he spirals down, you need to be quick and get out of your heli and run to the Skylift.

Yeah, I definitely want to see adamcs' footage on how to get it. I've spent hours and hours recording, just trying to get the thing. Damn it's hard lol.gif . I haven't been fast enough to get one with a carriage yet.

I second this, you should really let adamcs post the tutorial, I don't think anyone on here is going to want to wait until Christmas to see the video. I sure don't!

One more thing, anyone can make the video if they want to, you don't own the game, Rockstar does. The person should give you all the credit for it though.

agreed, it's just that i don't want someone to post a video on how to do something that i was the first to reveal, and that person ends up saying "i knew how to do it for a while" or "this was the first time anyone did it, so yay me" when in fact it was my idea and takadox's, but they say it was there's. That is what really pisses me off.
