I made that video. It's just some general footage I made because someone asked about the handling. There's a link to this topic in the description.

wtf? I tried taxadox's idea and was trying to snipe him when Yusuf randomly spawned outside of the Skylift notify.gif

Im going to try to 'snipe' him with the Buzzards miniguns now. Does the Skylift have okay damage resistance?

Yes it does, nothing will happen if you hoot the side windows as they are un brakable, the front windows are the only one's that can break. That's why i say use the buzzard, that way you can keep up with it and you can sort of control it.

to break the sky lift windows, you must use the advanced mg to break the window and then snipe yusef.

Takadox, your method doesnt work for me. Yusuf keeps randomly spawning outside of the heli before he gets close enough to shoot with the MG, then snipe.

Already tried that. Even if I sniped him in time, I'm sure the helicopter would still fall into the ocean.

Yeah i tried it before, and because of the way the cockpit is shaped, if you just sit there on the tracks, the train will push you along, but it looks like the subway car is connected, but it's not.

someone should edit the gta wiki page on the skylift, since everything else is being updated.

I was asking because you're pretty lucky to be on the gta4.net page. I'm not angry at all, I was just congratulating you.

@Mods, XTREME0235 needs an award.

hahaha thank you, when i found the whole obtaining the Skylift thing, i was thinking to myself, "should i let the public know or should i keep it to myself" and i went with letting you guys know, because i didn't want someone to really beat me, and i sort of wanted to know what would become of it if i told you guys, and there is my experiment, on the front page on GTA.net. Thank you guys, oh and if i never had gotten the help of those 2 guys on the first page to tell me how to post photo's, i don't think all these posts would be here, let alone the topic, i think it would probably be lockled by now. So thank you for helping me in that.

Also, adamcs, if you want, you can change the description (if possible) to blank, so it will just say "Retrieving the Skylift"

Once again, thanks for the credit, oh and don't forget to thank takadox for his method on obtainig it, if it worked, don't forget to thank him.

thanks for mentioning me too, extreme.
I dont know what it is, but knowing that you were one of the first to find it, along with someone else, is reward on its own.
man, your also lucky because I was going to make my topic last night at 12 when i remembered, but, i figured i was the only one that had got it.
so, in that, you beat me. tounge.gif

Wel it's nice to see that not everyone here on the forums are complete idiots that have no respect hat they chuck a tatrem when they get beat at something, and i don't really like to refer to as me beating you, i think the way to say it would be, first in best dress, if you know what i mean.

I'm glad that you can move on and not be angry because someone posted something that you were going to post, your a good forumer i think. It is also good like you said to be rewarded with someone else, because it dosn't make you out to be the big shot, and i don't classify my self as that, i just wanted to be in the spotlight for once, and i obviously got it. You know what, i will reward both of us in one way.......

hahaha, yeah it is a pitty ay?
Oh well we sort of have to deal with it i guess. Hopefully GTA V (5) will have new surprises.
Idk if you remember, but the Skycrane in GTA San Andreas was unobtainable as well after that one mission, damn R*, oh well, we unleashed the secret now, R* aint so smart.

F*CK!!!! My GTA IV CD is messed up and the xbox wont even play it anymore. There goes my hope for getting the Skylift tonight. suicidal.gif

Hey, when I'm gone, maybe you'll find out something amazing like last time I was gone (when you found out about the Skylift). Maybe flying a plane or some sh*t. Haha just kidding, but great job you two.

yeah, i remember. *flashback* woot swing truck of doom. well, i still like the skylift better. looks cooler. and the size.
have you compared it to the tug boat or annihilator. as yusef says "what is that thing holding the tank, so proud and powerful."

oh yeah, and on another note. "I told you I was getting one of these!

If anyone is having trouble still, we are glad to help. great day to start a gtaforums membership.

Yeah true, you know what, for the sake of time waisting and attempts, i am going to do the mission 'bang, bang' and when i reach the plane, i am going to see if i can get in it, be nice. It's just experimenting. lol.gif
