Definitely some Roy Walker (of catch phrase fame) answers above ("It's good... but it's not right!").

 

Time for another clue:

 

Clue #1: The map changes

Clue #2: all three major islands are visited

Clue #3: a character is present who can also be seen in Los Santos in a few years time

Clue #4: special paint jobs

Clue #5: a self indulgent cry for help

Clue #6: did Niko recently "dial B for Bomb" or just a coincidence?

 

Bonus hint: Clue #1 is rather obscure - you would almost certainly miss it, unless you actually went looking for it.

Makes sense. Packie's "Dial B For Bomb" friend ability is shown during the opening cutscene.

 

In addition, is it Paper Trail?

I've got a suspicion #1 and #6 may be throwing people off the scent more than helping. Maybe this will help narrow it down:

 

Clue #1: The map changes

Clue #2: all three major islands are visited

Clue #3: a character is present who can also be seen in Los Santos in a few years time

Clue #4: special paint jobs

Clue #5: a self indulgent cry for help

Clue #6: did Niko recently "dial B for Bomb" or just a coincidence?

Clue #7: no one has to die

Clue #8: the most frequent mission giver in the game accompanies you

It's a story mission, which could be from GTA IV, TLAD or TBOGT / EFLC.

No I'm afraid not to both of the above. Clue#1 is a much more subtle map change than Roman's Sorrow.

OK here's the penultimate clue. I say that, because if I get to #10 I suspect the first person who pastes what I have mind for it into Google will instantly see the answer!

 

Clue #1: The map changes

Clue #2: all three major islands are visited

Clue #3: a character is present who can also be seen in Los Santos in a few years time

Clue #4: special paint jobs

Clue #5: a self indulgent cry for help

Clue #6: did Niko recently "dial B for Bomb" or just a coincidence?

Clue #7: no one has to die

Clue #8: the most frequent mission giver in the game accompanies you

Clue #9: only forked out for a weekend course? He must be a natural!

Yes!!!! Well done, "Ladies Night" it is. I will edit in the reason for the clues when I get home (on the mobile at the moment)

 

EDIT - elaboration on all clues:

 

Clue #1: The map changes

To be fair, this was a nasty opener. When “Ladies Night” finishes, the appereance of the Lost Club House changes from the original state to the burnt out state. From this it is possible to deduce that the end of “Get Lost” from TLAD is happening at the same time as “Ladies Night”. We discussed hereAnother interesting point of trivia is this means Gerald McReary was not one of the prisoners seen escaping in the carnage of “Get Lost”, as “She’s a Keeper” and “Diamonds are a Girl’s Best Friend” must occur after this.

 

Clue #2: all three major islands are visited

We start in Algonquin at Gay Tony’s apartment, drive to the helipad above the Booth Tunnel in Alderney to collect the chopper, fly to Dukes to pick up the trail, and then follow our quarry back through Algonquin and Alderney.

 

Clue #3: a character is present who can also be seen in Los Santos in a few years time

Most people probably know about this, but going to spoiler it out just in case –

Spoiler

 

Clue #4: special paint jobs

Packie’s Comet is a brilliant red and the Maverick helicopter Luis Lopez and Tony take is black. These vehicles will not spawn outside of missions in these colours. See here for more details

 

Clue #5: a self indulgent cry for help

On the drive to the booth tunnel, this is the phrase Luis uses to describe Tony’s “suicide attempt” from the opening cut scene of the mission (with the safety on his pistol still engaged).

 

Clue #6: did Niko recently "dial B for Bomb" or just a coincidence?

While they are following Packie, Tony ponders why he has pulled into a multi-story car park in Westdyke. Whilst it may just be a counter-surveillance tactic and a coincidence, this is one of the locations where Packie will drop bombs off for Niko to collect.

 

Clue #7: no one has to die

It’s a straight forward covert following mission, you don’t have to kill anyone to complete it.

 

Clue #8: the most frequent mission giver in the game accompanies you

Tony Prince gives the most missions in TBOGT, including this one, with 12 in total, and is a passenger with you all the way, in both the car and the helicopter. He is actually the most frequent mission giver across the entire trilogy – Roman Bellic is second with 10.

 

Clue #9: only forked out for a weekend course? He must be a natural! 

In the helicopter Tony asks Luis to stop flying suspiciously. Luis responds that it’s because his “boss only forked out for a weekend helicopter course”. Given that he’s able to fly this Maverick, and by now also Yusuf Amir’s Swift, and the Buzzard prototype, he clearly must be a natural if he’s only had weekend’s worth of training.

 

Well done to Jeansowaty who got the correct answer just with GTA knowledge, before I posted this:

Clue #10: Kool and the Gang, or Atomic Kitten?

A google search of both will probably put the song “Ladies Night” with the same name as the mission at the top of the list, released by the former in 1979, and re-released by the latter in 2003.

^ Could be that.

 

In case it isn't I will guess "Blow your cover", as I think Elizabeta's voodoo also spawns along with Playboy X's yellow Patriot in the car park.

 

I've also edited in the details to my clues for the previous question above in case some of it is new trivia for anyone.

CORRECT!

1.Voodoo - A Voodoo spawns in that mission (lol I named that car too many times today)

2.Shootout with the Cops - Obviously you kill the coppers in that mission :p
