Well, for one, they didn't do HQ renders of hookers.

As I remember Sergiu putting it, they wouldn't put so much detail and emphasis on a character that wasn't important.

I'm no expert on models and textures, but I recall discussion about body64 textures that gives cars their gritty, as opposed to matte/cartoony, look were not implemented and/or activated in the PS2 beta which is why it all looks so cheery. The Toyz logo was probably one of these textures.

body64 destroys the car's looks in my opinion.

There is an unused feature called a taxi timer. You can enable it through the script with this line:
029A: 1
When enabled, driving a Taxi, Cabbie, or Borgnine with a passenger will give you $1 every game minute. What do you think its use was?

Reminds me of Simpsons Road Rage, where you would be getting money each second a passenger was in your car whether or not it was going anywhere.

But I'm guessing it's supposed to be a sorta-realistic remake of a fare meter, but based on time rather than distance.

I agree with universetwisters, seems like it may have been used to simulate some sort of continuous fare meter.

Not to mention poorly UV mapped. Take a look at the Infernus and Bobcat.

Yeah the bodymaps are annoying, i can't stand them at all.

Like somebody said, it makes the cars look older (in years) and it's not just that awesome.

About Catalina,There is No LEGIT Info & screeny,or proof about how Caty looked in the Alpha/early beta stages 

But on the Late Beta,She had the PC/Orginal Hair instead of the PS2 Varriant,and her top was white instead of black

The brown shirt makes him look more mafioso then the purple one in my opinion.

Here's another obscure unused behavior. When the lift bridge alarm is active, normally its warning lights turn on for 0.54 seconds and off for 0.48 seconds, repeating this pattern every 1.02 seconds. If the unused behavior is used instead, the lights turn on for 0.06 seconds and off for 0.48 seconds, repeating this pattern every 0.54 seconds. You can try this out by opening generic.ide and changing
1132, -88.6228, -23.0711, -19.5836, 229, 0, 11, 200, 0, "coronastar", "shad_exp", 100, 18, 1, 8, 40, 13, 0, 0, 0

How odd, does this mean at some time this would have be a scripted change similar to the model swap of the Callahan Bridge?
