When hanging out with other characters, take them to your wardrobe and try different clothing on. During this, they will comment on your selections. Extended comments occur after you've selected your new clothing and exited your wardrobe.

It's impossible to reach the deepest point in the sea as submersible will get crushed like an empty can of beer

Apparently you can during the Merryweather Heist: Offshore. During that mission the sub can go much deeper.

From my other post: http://gtaforums.com...entry1064152822

 

You can run into the UFOs above the hippie camp and military base before achieving 100%. You won't see them but you'll get interference and visual scan lines across your screen as if they are looking at you. You can land on top of them and stay as long as you like, as long as you land just right. The military UFO sounds like whales talking. The partial UFO embedded in the WTF building in LS makes some strange noises too.

How many total?

1. under the sea
2. above the military base
3. above the hippie camp
4. embedded in WTF building
5. tiny one reassembled during mission
6. on top of the station wagon @hippie camp
7. all aboard during abduction mission
8. atop Mt. Chiliad

That's 8 appearances of some kind of UFO.

- Each character has their own unique idle animations and combat stances. The online character will sometimes alternate between Trevor's and Michael's.

 

- If you rob a store too frequently an undercover police officer will eventually be waiting till your next visit.

 

- You can hang on the sides of the Police Riot.

 

- Unlike IV, helmets will not fall off from Special Weapons and Tactics operatives.

 

- The paintjob of the LSSD cruisers is based upon Volunteer Sheriff cruisers, in real life the LASD use black and White just like the LAPD.

 

- This is the second game in where the Rancher has a law enforcement version, the first one was San Andreas.

There is a man (forgot his name) who appears opposite the Binco/Discount store in paleto bay he talks about how when the government falls you gotta be ready. He even tells you of his website and you can invest $10k into it only to discover that you can only get your money back when the government falls so it's a rip off. Pretty funny though.

- The hispanic LSPD cop has his own set of voices which are related to Police work and such, rarely does he load them, instead most of the time he decides to load voices from another pedestrians, this glitch can even grant him a female voice some times. ''I'd rather bust heads everyday than detective work''.

 

- Sometimes peds can start conversations in a hostile manner, one time I heard a female cop say ''You want to be charged with obstruction? You have the right to shut the f*ck up''.

When you're walking with Chop, start a fight with someone and he will attack anyone who threatens you. He will also attack cops shooting at you but eventually they will kill him.

You can call Lamar as Franklin after Michael calls him about the Jewelstore Job. Franklin will talk about how he is now working with professionals and tells him to take care with Stretch

If you see a NPC character using an ATM, wait for them to finish then rob them. They will have a lot more money than usual. Ive robbed two so far and got $96 and just over $100.

I know this has been mentioned before but I feel like bringing it on again.

 

The one mission two police motor cycles stand next to each other and drop their donuts.

 

 

Just like in the movie Con Air with Nicolas Cage!!

The front car wheels of cars with broken engines don't snap in straight position when you let go of thumbstick.

Using handbrake doesn't make your vehicle lean forward when braking, only braking with the REVERSE button does.

.. is that realistic?, idk.

Raising or lowering your vehicle actually affects the height of your center of mass, lowering a sandking can help it stay on-wheels when offroadIng, and not be so top-heavy.

Apparently off road tires are not just for looks, they work.

You can get extra traction when climbing steep hill if you turn your wheels slightly.

If you get a high speed sports car, lower it all the way, and put offroad tires on it, it becomes a beast at climbing impossible steep mountains. I used the super gt.

Off topic
...also it would be nice to see cops/emts draw CHALKLINES around people you have killed. I loved seeing a chalkline on the ground in the other games... it was funny.

1#) - The Berreta M92F, the model which the current normal Pistol is based off used to be a standart issue for the LAPD until 2002. The then appointed Chief of Police William Bratton allowed his officers to use Glock Pistols.

 

2#) - The County Coroner's office you visit during Dead Man Walking is based off the real LA County Coroner's office, the seal is the same as it's real counterpart although some minor modifications where made. There is also the sign outside with the science motto just like the real one.

 

Real life motto: ''Bringing Law and Science to Community''

 

Ingame motto: ''Serving communities with Science fact''

 

3#) - The L.S.F.D is based off both the LAFD (City FD.) and the LAcoFD (County FD). Firefighter's bunker gear will have the Word ''City'' written on their back to indicate that they belong to a City based station, just like their real life counterpart they also have a lifeguard division. Plus the real life CoFD serves unincorporated parts of the county and it also Works with some cities that don't have their own FD outside the LA county.

4#) - One of the old security guards during the prologue mission is voiced by Adam West.

 

5#) - The SAHP patch in NPC troopers, Michael's & Trevor's uniforms is the real life CHP patch, the only difference is of course California being changed into San Andreas and the word eureka errased.

 

6#) - The L.S.P.D was established in 1839, curiously the first LA Police force known as the LA rangers was founded 14 years later, in 1853.

It is possible to properly launch boats from a trailer. Find a truck with a trailer and boat attached then back it into some shallow water. Detach the trailer by pressing RIGHT on the d-pad. Gently nudge the trailer and the boat will cleanly detach from it moving backwards into the water.

Handbrakes usually apply the rear brakes, not the front. Therefore a hard application wouldn't create as much of a lean when braking than front ones do.

- sometimes in the night you can see Luxurs flying around LSIA while flying. I'm not 100% sure about this. I was playing as Trevor while flying around to reveal the map. a Luxur passed close to me while flying Northeast of the airport. first time to see this though.

- following above point, sometimes a Jet will pass by instead.
