Camel's Toe Unique Jump

Recommended Posts

Win98crash

Ok, so I've taken to starting a game and doing everything possible *before* any missions and *without* cheats. I'm working on Unique Jumps at the moment and have 68 of them complete. The one I know that I absolutely cannot get is #17 on SAM, the launch platform ramp by the Gant Bridge is blocked by the invisible wall.

 

The one that should be possible is #25 on SAM...Northeast corner of the Camel's Toe heading EAST, having to clear the parking lot and land on the roof.

 

I tried for nearly two hours with various vehicles, but mostly on a PCJ-600. Yes, I've tried starting at different distances back from the down-ramp and yes I know how to lean forward on bikes. The closest I came was barely landing on the roof, but as luck would have it...no cinematic trigger the one time I landed up there sad.gif It seems that this jump may not be possible on a PCJ-600. Even starting from waaaaay back across the street, up the escalators wink.gif So, now I am wondering a few things.

 

Does an NRG-500 spawn anywhere in LV at the beginning of the game? I don't think I've ever seen one parked anywhere other than at the school which isn't open yet.

 

Can I somehow get an NRG from LS to LV? Using a Packer to ride over one of the invisible walls of the bridges between LS and LV maybe? LOL

 

Is there any way to get a vehicle with NOS before Transfender is open? Probably not.

 

Has anyone done this jump without an NRG or NOS vehicle?

 

Thanks for ideas folks smile.gif

I can't think of a way to do any of the other things you asked but as for this one.

You should be able to do the taxi missions, and once you deliver 50 passengers, all taxi's get jump and nitro's.

Ahh, good catch but I forgot to mention that I have the Taxi missions done and I've tried that already in both Cabbie and Taxi vehicles. Still way too slow and heavy unfortunately sad.gif

 

Thanks though!

 

EDIT: forgot about the jump ability!! Gonna give that a shot and hopefully have perfect timing. I sure wish it was like the jump in VC, he heh.

monocle.gif the Taxi jump in SA is way too small, if it was Vice than you could probably do it.

and also the Taxi is much faster than the Cabbie

maybe try using a Turismo (if you can find one)

or maybe use the Cheetah found in prickle Pine monocle.gif

Ok, no deal on the taxi. The jump helped, but still not enough distance.

 

I'm pretty sure I tried a turismo, but I will check again when I get time. Does the Cheetah spawn in Prickle Pine always? I drove around the blocks a few times but did not see one.

 

Anyway, I will load up my other save and try a bunch of cars...much easier to make a run without 4 stars biggrin.gif

 

I'll report back with the results, but I have a feeling none are going to make it.

I found this in another thread somewhere, but I can't remember what it was called right now.

Anyway these are the fastest cars, according to the game code.

 

CAR SPEED
Hotring Racer 220
Super GT 230
Bullet 230
Cheetah 230
Infernus 240
Turismo 240

monocle.gif sry the Cheetah actually only spawns there once you have the I/E crane available

you dont have very many optons in LV because most of the fast vehicles are I/E related (banshee and Super GT)

so your best off just finding something in traffic monocle.gif

No the tracks are closed while an island is locked. How about pushing it into a large boat?

What about using an FCR 900 instead if the NRG. I think they have the same top speed and the FCR is only slightly slower accelerating. They also spawn in Las Venturas.

have you tried the banshee inside the grounds of The Clown's Pocket (i think) or is that unavaliable due to the I/E crane?

I have an idea.... the mountain bike. If you sprint on it, you can catch people on the freeways, so pretty darn fast. Then bunny hop off the ramp at top speed.

Can this work?:

- Get NRG-500 in Los Santos.

- Park it on a boat.

- Drive the boat to Las Venturas.

- Take the NRG-500 to the Unique Jump.

Try it!!! cool.gif

Some great ideas so far folks. Nice speed info SWEETSAPRIK, any chance you have the speed info for bikes? I'm curious as to what the NRG is rated at. music.gif

 

I have tried nearly all the sports cars including the Turismo and Cheetah on another save and could not make the rooftop with any of them. Did not try a FCR-900 yet.

 

The boat theory seems promising. So far I have parked a NRG in the back of a Reefer by dropping down off the pier near Playa Del Seville into the boat. The first time I was close to the beach and the bike dropped down a bit and looked like it had disappeared. When I tried manuever the boat, the bike almost acted as an "anchor" and stopped the boat every few feet.

 

I pushed the boat up onto the beach, retrieved the bike and then repositioned the boat to the end of the pier. Success!! The boat acted normally and the bike was in the back! cool.gif Now I just have to find a good spot to get the boat on the shore/beach in LV. If the Reefer won't make it, I know I can probably get a Jetmax(?) or Predator without too much trouble.

 

Will report back again after I investigate the FCR and find a good area to come ashore in LV with the boat, he heh.

 

This is pretty interesting biggrin.gif

Like I said I just got them from another thread and saved them for later.

You should thank simoncampbell, he's the one that posted them.

I might start a game like this as well. but what do you do to get to the other islands? use a boat or plane? but then you get the cops right? can you then use any of the respray shops on the locked islands?

well i think i might know why that jump isn't possible. i didn't say i did but i have a theory ok. when i was attempting the jump i failed but then i used the other side of the stairs eg. there are two different sets of stair one use the other ones and you land on the roof and it sez unique jump success or whatever

Ahh, thanks for the link! Yeah, I didn't mean to make it sound like you had "discovered" the info, just thought you had the list handy.

Yes, I use a Shamal to fly to whatever area I want to work in. You can actually fly around the edges of the map over the water and you should not get any stars until you are above land. So I'll fly around the edge until I'm close, reset the red Player Target marker to the exact location I want to land, make a sharp turn over the land and bail!! Stay at a very high altitude before you bail and you'll have time to fine tune your landing position.

 

But then, as you said, you have a few cops after you. The key is to find a bike or fast vehicle asap and to always be on the move. There is usually a PCJ-600 at the Verdant Meadows so that I usually where I start. And yes, the respray shops work, but only to repair the vehicle, the stars will always be active. It helps to know where Armor is located and where food stands will spawn (Ambulances add health too). If you play first 2 missions, up to the "Ryder" (I think), it opens the food joints and you can use them, but be prepared for a wall of cops when you step out. Enjoy biggrin.gif

Right, but there are also two jumps there. One heading North, through the Police Bribe star and landing on the building with A-frame doorways, which isn't too awfully difficult, and one heading East, clearing the parking lot and landing on the building next to the "PAWN" and "CAR PARK" signs...that is the bitch one! If you attempt both directions it should show 2 additional jumps found in stats, not just 1. smile.gif

Thanks, I've looked at that before. I glanced at it again...no special hints for this jump, but the author does mention s/he used a PCJ-600 for all jumps. Not so sure about that, I certainly couldn't make it.

 

I tried the NRG in the back of a Jetmax but the damn thing kept falling out. Gonna try a few different boats tonight, I'm still determined to make it.

(sorry for the double-post)

 

Yes!! I finally got that sucker! What finally worked was putting the NRG in the back of a Reefer, backing up directly to the large docks just south of Rockshore West and driving out of the boat onto the dock. The actual jump took three runs before it triggered smile.gif

 

On my first attempt using this method, I had planned on taking the Reefer all the way up to Bone County north of the Airstrip where there is tiny beach (a Sea Sparrow also spawns there). Well, I got halfway there and it started doing the "anchor" thing again and my boat eventually caught fire. I also tried backing up to a pair of those large water pipes and riding up the middle ramp between them but lost the bike in the water.

 

Then I realized that I could just back up to the docks (duh!) and ride the bike right out. Easy as pie. Thanks for all the suggestions people!

Why are you trying to do this, the whole getting everything without doing missions?

For the fun of it. For the challenge of it. So I can play through (most of) the missions in one shot without having to do most of the side stuff. So I have all of the rewards that come with all the side stuff from the get go.

 

And why not? I've gotten my 100% and everything else I wanted to accomplish on my first save. It'll be a different experience playing missions on this one cool.gif

I kind of see why he's doing it.

When I did these:

100% Game Save.

More Game Saves.

 

I went through and things as soon as I could, like the second you could do the tags, I did them all, so I'd have a save with all the tags done the second they could be done. This way if I ever want to do the game over again I have a few different spots to start from. Like that one being like a few missions in but all the tags completed will save me alot of time.

 

I suggest you keep this slot untouched once you've completed the side stuff Win98crash, so if you ever want to start again, you'll already have all this stuff done.

Thanks guys, now im doing the same for GTA III while waiting for GTA:SA to come out. I'm only gonna do the missions, however, to get the the other islands because there is no way to get to the other islands without cheats.

 

Also, its easier, not getting shot at while doing taxi, fire, ambulence and vigilante missions, by those damn gangs. I would do it on Vice City but i just finished it on 100% and i personally think that the only thing better between GTA III and GTA: VC is the vehicles and weapons. VC is just a flat land but III has all different altitudes.
