Madd Dogg is formally named Doc G. This is found on Brady's Official Strategy guide for the Ps2 version of the game. You find it on Oysters guide of his mansion pool.

CJs body changes slightly with any increase or decrease in muscle or fat. Maybe this seems obvious, but I always thought CJ had 3 static body types (super skinny, massively ripped or obese) since the changes from eating or going to the gym only happen after you exit the interior of a fast food shop or gym.

This is most obvious if you start with a default skinny CJ, do the max fat cheat, and then do max muscle cheat - his body will actually morph in between the two. Not even V has this!

Really? Played the game for years and i didn't even knew about his other name.

 

Look at the mount chilliad map, it's shaped a bit like a ghost.

 

The "ghost cars" aren't actually ghost cars. They are just a edited model of Glendale, they took the texture of the original glandel and made a "new car" with broken pieces of the car, and used some beta wheels. They can't be repared, it is actually NOT CRASHED. It's just the original model, exactly like the normal glendale.

Please don't triple post. I know this isn't the most active topic in the world sometimes, but still. I've edited it all into one post so this post will likely make no sense anymore.

Going even further, I believe garages even open when you fly over them as well (source: special vehicle guides).

By the way I wonder why Rockstar created so many houses with garage given how fastly the cars disappear form some of them or lose their tuning.

During my time of playing (on PC) the cars have very rarely disappeared. It could be an issue with the console versions. I like to save a lot of proof vehicles, and none of them (so far) have ever disappeared, or glitched, etc. This is one of the reasons why so many garages are a big advantage in this game. Having the option to save the cars in so many garages, and at different areas on the map is a great feature to have.

So evidently it's easier to transport a car with a plane than it is with the Packer!  :turn:

Nothing new, but if you want to know about executing those courier missions - Big Smoke - then this video could be helpful
Spoiler


*. Where do the FBI Agents go during the mission Badlands?
Spoiler



*. Police cars flying off the rooftops
Topicthat discussed about this.

*. Where does Ryder go during the Mission Pier 69?


In short, you can kill Ryder without firing a single bullet or using any weapon... hahahaha.
Ryder proves that he's the real Busta ;)
This game is ridiculously awesome. It shocks with so many hidden things that I didn't know even after playing it so much..
Best GTA, HANDS DOWN !!!

Zmoonhild is an awesome YouTuber. I love watching his gta sa videos.

To the topic, Big Smokes beta model can be seen as his statue in last mission of the game.

I suppose the map called Secret locations is well known by the players but it shows some interesting places.

On the mision gray imports, you can shoot the crates that are lifted in mid air, if you do it right the crates will fall on the 2 bad guys on the floor, one of them will die instantly the other one will jump away.

^^ Here's the video that shows what Nitrous~ mentioned above:


The video is actually about a particular glitch, but it also serves the purpose of how shooting the crates works.

If you kill the ballas in Sweet & Kendl, Sweet will not be separated from the group.

I led the car to the beach, where I lost the ballas and the cutscene under the intersection never triggered. I drove all around CJ's pals, but they just sat on their bikes, looking at him.

I did this the other day! I played on my phone, and ran out of bullets, so was waiting for him to stop. He turned into Pine Creek, where I bumped my boat into his, he turned upside down, swam for a bit and drowned. I thought he was going into the village to be honest.

In the mission "A Home in the hillls" you can skip the part where you have to kill the vagos on rooftop. Just wait till triads arrive on the roof via parachute and as soon as instruction comes to save them enter Mad Doggs mansion to trigger cutscene.
(However you have to complete the rest of mission alone inside mansion till you move out of it)

I learned this through watching a glitch video some time ago, it's a great way to get sniper rifle ammo relatively quickly. I believe there's another pick up not far from there (near the movie studio) so it's very useful.
