Anyone who played GTA3 on the PC will probably remember going to the "player setup" screen and seeing the option for "playa2". He is Claude but with a mustache, brown jacket, blue jeans, white trainers and blue eyes....

It is just an alternate skin that looks kind of funny but it is never referenced or mentioned ever again. It's just kind of...there.

 

Please let me know your thoughts...

Maybe a disguise for Claude? I mean, almost every gang hates him, but Claude wouldn't need a disguise, unless his default skin is his disguise and Player 2 is what Claude really looks like...

Probably something to invite people to mod skins and stuff. Just to broadcast, telling fans "hey, make skins and use them like this one"

 

Why did VC also have a "player skin" feature in the vanilla menu? Skinning is never talked about in the game, nor is it mentioned in any of the manuals or anything.

 

It's R* paving the path for modders.

I think it was supposed to be used for multiplayer, just like in other games such as Doom, where if you played online, the player's color changed depending on which player you were (Player 1 was green marine, Player 2 was gray marine, etc) and Duke Nukem 3D where Duke's pants were colored (Player 1 blue pants, Player 2 red pants, etc). So in this case, Player 1 was using the default Claude skin, Player 2 was using this one and so on. Since multiplayer was scrapped, they kept the skin and added an option to select skin in game.

It used to at least.

I've played with that skin before and it looks quite silly seeing blue jeans with pockets like that on the sides.

Wasn't there a time where they were planning to include multiplayer in the game?

Yeah, but they scrapped the idea early on. But maybe if they did test the game with multiple players, then maybe they used the skin for an extra player.

In the PS2 and most likely the Xbox version too, there is no Skins folder where the player 2 skin is located.

I always figured it was just an alternate skin. I think it's kinda cool because I switch the skins after

, like you change your look to avoid attention or to turn over a new leaf.

It's just a skin. They simple gave us an additional one to use, as there was cloth pickups option on GTAIII.

GTA III was going to have multiplayer, and this is probably how you'd see others.

The multiplayer theory? Unlikely.
In the alpha/beta development stages they had two player skins, same as in the final version.

The default player skin, having a black jacket and no mustache.
And the 2nd one (optional) wearing a blue jacket and having a mustache.

They might have kept that concept, yet, altering it quite a bit. You get the idea.

So that explains why in some pics Claude wore a blue jacket and had the Nazi Hitler mustache...

Probably just a pre-made example from Rockstar to show us what we can achieve by editing the skin. The whole skins menu was there just for the player to use as means of having fun with the in game appearance. I guess by the time of SA they realized mods have taken over anyway so there was no need for skins any more (that and the fact that it wouldn't work due to separate clothing pieces).

It is just an alternate skin, they may not have really mentioned it in GTA3, but for Vice City you could (and still can) download an alternate skin for Tommy on their website.

Go to Downloads > Skin, and you can get it.

I agree, I believe it was created for the use of multiplayer.

Other than that, it could just be a simple PC add-on showing you can edit your characters apperence...
