It's down to the terrible d-pad on the standard Xbox controller. This happened a lot to me at first, but I just made a habit of slightly angling the d-pad downwards when pressing left, so the phone wouldn't pop up all of a sudden.
anyone know the exact location for sabre turbo, khamelion, police buffalo, rat loader and merryweather-tuned mesa ?
There is no such thing as a Sabre Turbo, but Why did they re-name this?
The Sabre Turbo spawns around Los Santos once in a while, you just have to get lucky. Read a few of the later pages of this thread for a location on the Police Buffalo. I often see the Rat Loader parked around Sandy Shores. The Khamelion is only available in GTA Online, if you bought the Collector's Edition. Not sure about the lifted military Mesa, but it was discussed in here not too many pages ago.
V couldn't have been without IV, much like SA couldn't have been without III. IV might have been quite basic, but it was the father of all the mechanics and functionality that we see in current Rockstar games - RAGE, the use of Euphoria, and whatnot.
They keep living their lives when we're not using them, and that extends to their clothing, too. It would be weird if they wore the same clothes in all occasions. Why would Michael wear an expensive suit while he's home? I find it quite cool that he slips into something more comfortable.
