3 Stars from SF PD

Recommended Posts

Win98crash

I jacked a Firetruck and got a single star, so then I'm cruising around and smash into the gate at the downtown SFPD. I didn't drive past the gate, just smashed it. Anywho, I still had one star and drove down the hill/grass area next to the gate and proceeded to roll the Firetruck over and was sliding on the my roof toward the edge and about to drop into the water.

 

I hit Triangle to bail and as I was crawling out from underneath, I instantly get 3 stars!?! The only thing I can figure is because I was near the PD it somehow triggered it, but I was clear across the street. So...what determines when the three stars are triggered? I know when you jack the Maverick on the H platform sometimes it will give you the three and sometimes it doesn't, but I have yet to figure out why.

 

Also, why can I sometimes fly a chopper around the parking lot area of the Easter Basin Naval Base and NOT get the normal five stars? Either I have to land or fly closer to the building to trigger it. (I have a sweet spot near there where I like to get six stars and cause destruction and it makes it nice to get five instantly)

When you're near an impound for long, you will get 3 stars. Well that happend to me. I was just following the street lights when it was red light infront the LSPD Impound, so I stopped, then I was like WTF?! when I got 3 stars! What is up with that?!

Weird. This is the only time I've seen it happen away from the PD like that. Now, I have gotten in the Maverick and lifted off before they triggered, but I've always been in the "zone" when they did.

I think this is a gameplay question, maybe it will get moved...

 

But the 3 stars from the police impound area is delayed, you can enter, shoot someone and leave for a good 30-60 seconds before they call it in and get the stars. If you watch the cops inside, they call you in on their walkie talkies, hence the delay.

 

For Restricted Area and Easter Basin Naval Docks you can get pretty close and not get stars. It depends on your distance away, or your height above. If you are high enough you can fly over either place without a care in the world. And at the Restricted Area you can usually touch the fence before getting 5 stars.

That "feature" is really annoying! The first few times I went to the impound garage and broke in, the alarm went off and I quickly drove off, thinking that nothing would happen to me. Just as I got far away I would get 3 stars, and for some reason biggrin.gif all of the cop force just happens to be right near me and open up fire!

The Restriced Area thing is good because more then a few times I have taken that little side road that leads right to it and right before I get really close to it im like "OH CRAP" and get out of there without anyone knowing.

Thanks Mxyzptlk, I guess that's the info I was lookin for. I'd still like to know why I *don't* get 3 stars sometimes..I use the exact same route to get to the police chopper every time.

 

Maybe it's just random-like.

Yea i think i no the answer to this one. The times when u hop into the chopper then get 3 stars a bit later is coz u didnt get outta the area quick enough. U gotta grab the chopper then as soon as u take off, fly in any direction away from the PD as fast as the chopper takes u.

If u fly of slower u will still b in the area and the 30 or 60 seconds it takes for the stars to appear will be able to get u. So really just if u accidently knock the PD gate just drive off real fast from the PD and u wont get stars.
