Also, a great bug -
steal a tank and go max wanted... drive that tank into Vice Port from the north, past the Pay-N-Spray, and a cop car flies off the roof at you. (It's supposed to spawn on the street)


That's not a bug, it's just how R* scripted the Police car up there, it's funny, I know :)

And probably most of you know that, you can visit the bank you robbed in "The Job" after that mission, and get some money, but with 4 wanted stars.

Also, the sky mod looks nice, I'll try it one day.

Certain box trucks spawn with (poorly textured) dead pigs hanging on meat hooks in the rear. They can be seen if you knock the rear door off.

I found these in the back of a Mule with "R.S. & L. Bows" (ha!) livery.

Spoiler

 

I was about to say it was fake since I couldn't find one in game until I opened GGMM and checked through all the models. There's also a variation with some bloody crates:

It would've been a excellent inside joke if you said: "and we all thought it was pretty meat"

Let's see if I can interpret this from a 5-year old memory:
In Downtown, there is a building (unsure which one, most likely the Finance building or somethin) in front of which there are certain 'posts' that drop money when knocked over by a vehicle. I can't remember properly, so if anyone can confirm this it would be greatly appreciated.

The interior for St Mark's Bistro (atleast I presume that's where it is) in the intro is hidden inside the Ocean View hotel:

The license plates on the cars in the 10th Anniversary Edition have the Florida Gators logo on the left side.

This isn't so much of an eastegg or anything more like a bizarre occurrence I've never seen happen before. The other day when I was playing "Cop Land"when you lead the cops back the the garage to steal their uniforms there's was another cop who got stuck in the door way. As the door came down it beheaded him.

I guess not many people know it. There are some sticks east of the Hyman Condo.

They look like:

Smashing them gives you some cash:

Actually, having mapped the path nodes on VC, there's a slight shift; the path where the cop can spawn is slightly over the edge of the building and not on the street - but splitting hairs. Very funny indeed, somewhere I got a gif I made of it *goes to dig up ancient drives*

I figured this out today on the Pizza Boy side-mission, but some of you probably already know it. If you missed a costumer with a pizza and it's near them, you can "slide" or "push" it towards them until it registers.

it's weird, when it got to that part I chased him to the roof and couldn't manage to get a shot on him, then when I think he reached the helicopter the game just continued. I didn't even have to hit him! the game doesn't acknowledge it whatsoever so it could just be a bug, but inside I'm a believer~

It's lame. I tried to do it for hours and Lance got glued to the spot where you find him...

Was it part of a unused mission or was it cut from The Fastest Boat? Who knows.

You can see a Ped spawner here. That's what confirms it to be in a mission.

And, Vice City's Fire Department isn't the best. A burnt building RIGHT behind the Fire Department :D

I just figured out that you can target explosive barrels with the classic controls. I'm on PC, so I never realized it.

Umm...since when Lance goes for the heli?
Not to mention, the heli doesn't spawn there all the time, so you either had the game modified, or you're lying...

been months and months since I've gone through the storyline so I may have just brainfarted and thought he ran to the chopper that's usually there, I did have mods installed but I know they wouldn't have changed the heli spawning behavior or how the mission would've played out. my mistake

Nah that's old, haven't seen that in a while though.

 

Also yep the blimp is not solid, just a texture as are clouds/moon/those ships you see far out.
