why are some vehicles locked?

Recommended Posts

gr8koogly

at random points in the game, i've noticed that certain cars are locked. i saw that someone mentioned a jester locked behind wheel arch angels and a lot of people replied but no one gave any reason to why it was locked other than the possible glitch where it should look blown up but not.

 

these cars that i'm talking about are locked sometimes. sometimes they're not and they are perfectly usable. for example, in LV, the rampety truck wayyy up north on the map (doesn't really matter which, really, because these cars are all over the place)

 

 

anyway, random long question.

can someone explain why the cars are locked only sometimes (import/export list irrelevant to this, i promise)

Vehicle Security:

1: Doors unlocked

2: Vehicle has an alarm

3: Doors locked

 

At least people in San Andreas are sometimes smart smile.gif . To unlock a vehicle, tow it to your nearest garage, or just run around a block, and come back.

awesome answer ... :-)

 

in relation to that ... do you think it matters how many times a certain vehicle is "stolen" (by cj) for it to matter if the vehicle will be locked or not?

Well maybe it would matter to CJ a lot if a particular locked car he steals is a special one.

Take note that you can encounter locked cars in at least two occassions/situations: a) outside a mission, parked somewhere around San andreas b) during a mission, which is a more important occassion to obtain a locked car since it is usually a special kind. (ie bulletproof, damage proof, etc )

Actually nothing special about that jester except it has an alarm the first time you ride it.

For vehicle security, it is just like in reality, the ehicles are sometimes unlocked, sometimes locked, and also sometimes unlocked and contains an alarm, or is locked and contains an alarm.

I found a locked Super GT near the control tower and beside the entrance of the San Fierro Airport and I found that it will always be locked (I think). So I took out my chainsaw got about 5 feet away from the driver door, then ran at the door, and pressed circle so that CJ moved forward while the cainsaw ran, then I just chainsawed off the door and got in then drove away.

i didn't think that was possible -- i've read in other topics that it doesn't work to "remove the door" given the way the coding is in the game ....

 

i'll have to try it on these random locked vehicles.

 

:-) i can't believe AI has gotten as advanced as having random peds in a video game thinking about locking or not locking their cars. LOL

I've tried once only on that vehicle, I guess I should do it a couple more times before telling people it works. blush.gif
