It's almost 9 years and I'm still discovering new things in GTA:San Andreas, that's how vast this game really is. Did anybody else find the Easter Basin caravan park? I can't believe I didn't find it, but hey, I didn't previously aim for 100% in this game as I am now.

As it stands my game is 80% complete and I'm finishing off the races which are a lot of fun.

Caravan park in Easter Basin? Are you sure? I have been all over the map and I've never seen that.
Things that I found about 6 months ago were
The grave stone inscriptions in the memorial at San Fierro
Bio Well - located next to Inside Track at Montegomery
The group of Noodle vendors - located in the alleyway next to the alley way of the mission Mountain Cloud Boys
The guy in San Fierro with a box on his head with a sign strapped to his chest that says 'God Is Playing With Us' really unusual ped and his face is quite detailed compared to other peds. It was scary when I first saw that guy because I'd never encountered him

Do they ever spawn outside of that mission or Vigilante? I've only seen them in Vigilante.

Yeah they are always there, if you are standing in the alleyway in Mountain Cloud Boys you see those people who go running, then turn to your right, facing south and walk down that flight of stairs and you'll see them to your left. They are handy for topping up a bit of fat. I hold L1 while I eat and you'll see the fat level go up a tiny bit every now and then

Yes, I make new discoveries quite frequently and thus, it bothers me when Weasel parrots his: "The game's old; the search function answers many questions" slogan.

Well he is true that this is an old game. A lot of things can be found by just google searching it. I don't think there is any location in San Andreas that hasn't been seen or investigated by myth hunters. When I first got the game I went searching for things without google. I didn't want my first ever game to be spoiled.
Then after 5 or so play throughs I went and googled all the hidden things and myths which opened up new places to investigate.

I think you may have noticed that whenever you save at Doherty and then load that save again - You'll always see 2 HPV-1000's on the streets.

Well yes, I discover one or two things about the game every next tiem I play it. Both the locations, the quotes from peds, characters or radio characters, advertisements, billboards, images etc...

Hell, I only found out in November 2012 that the Shady Industries building is modelled after the building in Eminem's song...
And that 'Green Goo' is homophonic with 'Gringo'

To be completely honest, I never seen the mechanic of when you fail a mission, redo it, and skip the drive to the rendezvous. It was weird.

I am playing SA over again and I failed the OG Loc mission. I play around kill some Ballas and what not. When I am done doing that i decide to complete the mission finallu. Go to Big Smoke watched the scene. I saw the dpad sprite come up saying I can skip the drive. I never saw that...

Is this normal, I have been playing this game since Oct. 2004.

Yeah, it's normal. There are a few missions which require long trips. If you do that trip, but fail the mission still after you do the trip, and re-try the mission on the same game (meaning you don't re-load the game), you'll be given the option to skip the trip to where the actual mission takes place. Remember that this only works on missions that have the driving part at the beginning. Here's a list of all the missions that have this option in case you fail them:
  • OG Loc
  • Gray Imports
  • Madd Dogg's Rhymes
  • The Green Sabre
  • Badlands
  • Body Harvest
  • Lure
  • Photo Opportunity
  • Interdiction
  • You've Had Your Chips
  • Don Peyote
  • Freefall
  • Saint Mark's Bistro
  • Misappropriation
  • Cut Throat Business
When a trip skip is executed, the words Later that day... will appear at the bottom of the screen and the player will be transported to their destination at a later time (after one in-game hour and a half in GTA San Andreas).
All you need to do is press "Yes" (letter Y on the PC / keyboard) when you see the Trip Skip icon on your screen: user posted image

Yes, seriously. I've been playing SA a LOT lately, and I've actually discovered quite a bit of things. Hopefully I'll encounter even more.

I just found that if you take bet until your money is red in Caligulas or Four Dragon Casino someone will call you twice and make an attack! (only happen in Las Venturas area)

I also realized this(only on OG LOC though). I never knew about the other missions with this option due to OG LOC is the hardest mission ( in the LS section) w/this option

As obvious as it may seem, I found out the LVPD underground parking garage not until this year. I never went around the corner, where the main entrance is.

 

Oh, and now I finally looked the introduction video and understood where exactly Ralph Pendelbury was killed. Quite interesting.

After I 100% complete V and IV+EFLC, I will most likely do a SA playthrough. There are many things to discover in SA. It's amazing.

Yep, im still finding things.

Two days ago, I just discovered a rideable train (yes it's true, I even took some pictures, if you want I can post them). Was just doing some mission then  I saw a train was just stood there, not moving. I came near it then pressed F, and CJ dragged out the driver (yes there is a driver) and next thing I know, I was riding the train. But it sucks though, the only view you can get is cinematic, which means you can't look at the train closely, but oh well, who cares about the look when you can ride it.
