Good point.  I think you either need to drop to two stars while flying, or drop to three stars and then exit and re-enter the aircraft to make the hydras fly off.  At any rate, it looks like my "collect one star" suggestion was off.

 

You are for sure a much better pilot than I am.  I haven't had much luck collecting the Fallen Tree bribe by plane.

Well, - judge for yourself wink.gif

 

 

 

Although it will fit in any decent sized puddle, - I don't know if it will fit in the Corona garage.

 

Some nice finds there Orion! I never thought of checking the NRG challenge NRG-500.

Mercy. It seems you are getting the gang of that new controller. Perhaps you'll soon be back to your old form and ready to try out a few river jumps. Well done Phreak, another nice video to add to your collection. BTW, there's a nod to our old Fun with NOE buddy in the chain game, but I'm beginning to wonder if anyone will ever find it.

Seems like the flames has died out sarcasm.gif Time to tie up a few loose ends.

 

I said earlier on this thread that undrowned News Choppers wasn't chased by Hydra's, turns out that isn't the entire truth.

In fact once CJ has undrowned a News Chopper he isn't chased by Hydra's at all!, he can change aircraft as often as he likes! Only helicopters give chase.

Something in the procedure stops the Hydra's from comming.

It probably isn't related to undrowning, - because Hydra's do chase your own undrowned helicopter (one you brought yourself).

And News Choppers jacked in the air is also chased (vigourously) by the Hydra's.

 

 

Haven't had much luck getting a Hydra to fall in the water off Santa Maria beach (for possible recovery).

But I did notice something funny, - the missiles do work underwater! They just move ridicously slow, - like walking pace lol.gif

 

The Hydra's drop in the water liberally above the Dam though, - but CJ seems unable to move them while swimming (I don't know a way to trigger the underwater glitch up there)

 

As for getting a Stuntplane, - I'm getting doubts about those actually flying around? Lately I've only seen Beagles, Rustlers and Cropdusters.

 

I almost airjacked a Beagle comming down low over a hill around Vinewood, - had CJ going for the doorhandle.

But I don't know if that will work with a Rustler (with the "door" being behind the wing).

 

Btw. the Beagle is obtainable early using other methods, - the one in Ft. Carson spawns unlocked from the beginning.

But it's going to be difficult to get it out of driveway with 4*'s.

I think you are on to something. I've had the no-hydra glitch/feature on a very few occasions, and never figured out how to trigger when I wanted. Do you think this might be the answer to easy horseshoes and snapshots?

 

The only thing I can think of that might be related, is an observation that the SF airport seems to provide some temporary protection from Hydras. I've noticed this mostly with the Maverick. CJ can usually get in, get off the ground, and travel some distance without getting chased by the Hydra. However, exiting and re-entering seems to clear this protection. Strangely enough, on a modified save with an enlarged PnS, the Hydra spawns immediately after the spraying begins but before the stars are cleared, so he gets one free shot on a new painted aircraft, and CJ can't move until the spraying ends.

Add this to the list of damn interesting things you've discovered. I wonder if perhaps the game engine gets confused about the altitude it should be spawning the Hydras when you jack the news chopper underwater... the exact combo of circumstances for this to happen (only a News Chopper, only when jacked underwater) is pretty unique.

 

The missiles underwater thing is pretty funny... I noticed it when I ditched my plane into the water, and then saw the previously fired missile slowly working its way to the drowned craft.

 

 

The Hydra's drop in the water liberally above the Dam though, - but CJ seems unable to move them while swimming (I don't know a way to trigger the underwater glitch up there)

 

I've tried entering blue hell and trying to see if there is any weak spot in the walls and floor of the lake, but no luck. What's more, I haven't had any success getting them to drown intact; the only ones I get are the stupid ones that fly right into the cliffs surrounding the dam, so their planes have already blown up by the time they reach the water.

 

Now that you mention it, I can't recall if the biplanes periodically flying overhead are Stuntplanes or Crop Dusters, or both. Seems like it's only Dusters.

 

 

Btw. the Beagle is obtainable early using other methods, - the one in Ft. Carson spawns unlocked from the beginning.

But it's going to be difficult to get it out of driveway with 4*'s.

 

I can't even get it out with no stars, my friend. I'm probably incompetent. In any case, that Beagle spawn is really odd; it slides effortlessly within the space of that driveway (other Beagles are much more difficult to push), and it looks like it gets critically damaged during the spawning process itself. Just after the Beagle comes into view, you can see smoke drifting off from the left engine (it probably drops through the roof of that house). The plane blows up soon after you hop in, even if you don't move anywhere. Towing it out also destroys the plane real quick. I haven't had much luck pushing it out, partly because of the obstacles surrounding the wings, partly because the only parts you can push are the fuselage and the engines. The only methods I've found for obtaining that plane involve cheating. All this effort, for a plane that flys slow, handles poorly, and can't be saved in a garage. tounge.gif

I remember reading an old Vortex as a Submarine glitch, but I'm not sure if it works on PC, and never tried it on any system. It has something to do with the unique jump into the water of the upper dam. The camera tends to hold the "uniqueness" and something about driving by radar to the far corner of the map turn the vortex into a submarine. So, perhaps this would provide a method to underwater glitch in the upper dam, but there isn't much hop of finding a vortex on a master save. Still, it's nice to keep all the information related to glitches in one spot. So, has anyone every gotten the sub-vortex glitch to work on PC?

I just tried it. Triggering the glitch is simple enough; start the vortex from the gas station up the road for a good angle and to build up enough speed. The camera will indeed stay in cinematic mode after you land on the water. The instructions say to drive to the side of the dam, which will end the cinema and leave you underwater. That last part isn't working on my PC version: I just end up on the surface of the water.

Hey! I got it to work. I don't think this will help with undrowning or anything, but it's still sort of fun to play with. This is what I've got so far:

 

Take a unique jump with a vortex and land in the water so the cut-away camera maintains it's position. The jump into the SF airport never triggers the camera for me, but I was able to trigger the glitch with the jump near the narrow gap out of the airport. It requires a lot of flight control to avoid hitting anything and land in the water upright.

 

Anyway, once you've got the camera thing going you need to get out of draw distance range (best guess, about 500 units). The Vortex will start to sink, but it's difficult to tell if it is sinking until you touch something that cancels the camera angle. I'm not sure, but I think it helps to stop and let the vortex settle a little. Once I got lucky and noticed the camera angle was aiming gradually lower, so I knew I had the glitch working then, and bumped into a wall to set the camera to normal.

 

Added: It appears to help if CJ gets out of sight of the camera. Moving around a corner or hill seems to start the sinking. Touching bottom will cancel the camera; this strategy requires fewer restarts if it's not working. Be careful to avoid hitting things once in sub-mode, this often cancels the effect.

 

Add the broken bridge jump (eastbound worked, didn't try west) to the list of jumps that can be triggered by a Vortex and landed in water. It's actually a pretty good spot since it doesn't take long to get out of sight or back up to the jump if it doesn't work.

Got it to work after a couple of attempts. Very cool cool.gif, - my Vortex flying skills put to new use.

 

Once you're on the water keep full throttle and full nose-down control, - after some distance (but still in view) there's a splash (like the one you get if you ditch an aircraft), keep full throttle and full nose-down and you'll soon hit the bottom and cancel the camera mode. Works every time. I used the jump by the export ship.

 

Under water the Vortex has positive boyancy so you need to keep your speed up to stay under (sort of opposite aircraft).

If you want to resurface just slow down to a stop and hold full nose-up. Driving it full speed to the surface is likely to flip it.

SA Restricted Area Map

 

Seemann managed to dig the restricted area coordinates out of the executable, and pdescobar used this information to create a map of the 4 and 5 star restricted areas of San Andreas. The only detail that seems just a tad off, is that the gap to cross the bay is on the LV side of the Amphibious Assault Ship, even though it looks like there is more room on the other side. <Reference Link>

70 out of 70 Jump Completed

 

If someone really wanted to score all 70 jumps on a master save, it should be possible by script switching and alternate executables. The idea is that v2 doesn't see v1 barriers, and the other way around. So, someone with access to v1 and v2 or v3 executables could swaps the scripts appropriately to complete the Gant Bridge jump that is blocked by an invisible barrier.

Cool, - very useful map !

 

One thing though, - there's definitely a 3rd dimension to the military areas. If you fly over at some height (you don't need to be very high) then the stars don't trigger.

Also if you approach the navalbase on the seabed (underwater glitch or Vortex sub) you can get much closer without triggering, and the seabed under the Carrier is totally unrestricted.

Based on what Orion quoted from the IPLs, there are indeed Z limits for the military bases.

 

At Easter basin, the stars should trigger between altitudes of -10.6598 and 140.26

At Area69 the stars should trigger between altitudes of -1.06643 and 73.9336

 

There's basically no way to map them though.

 

------------------------

 

@Bad~Boy: If you look closely you'll see that the only part of that dirt road which triggers the stars is in the SE corner. Try it out in-game and you'll see the map is accurate.

Sorry for the random bump, but just to check...

 

All rubregg's videos show him flying out of LS in a Shamal... Is he spawning it? I can only find the Rustler, which is nowhere near fast enough to get to, say, the Emerald Isle without Hydras shooting me down.

There's one Shamal inside Los Santos Airport, two inside Las Venturas Airport, and at least one inside San Fierro Airport, but all fixed-wing aircraft in SF Airport have locked-doors until Pilot School has been completed.

 

To answer your question: The Shamal inside LS Airport is available from the beginning of the game, for PC anyway, not sure about other platforms.

The Shamal can be found here: http://www.gtasanandreas.net/sam/?op=4.0,9...0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0

 

It should be there on PS2 (I think sam works with data from the PS2 version?)

On rare occasions it won't spawn, - move away and approach it from a different direction.

 

Also I guess you're mixing up the Rustler and the Dodo, - there's only 1 Rustler spawn from the beginning (at SF airport) and it is locked.

 

The Dodo is perfectly usable to enter 4* territory, you just need to dodge some of those missiles.

A missile shot directly from behind is hard to dodge because the Dodo is slow, - so keep zig zagging (hugging buildings and/or terrain if possible) to avoid that the Hydra gets that perfect shot.

Fantastic, thank you.

 

And yes, I was confusing Rustler and Dodo. I seem to do that with a lot of vehicles, just forget all the names really quickly. I generally use BMX's to get around for manoeuvrability.

 

Edit: Interestingly, the map provided in the Maps of San Andreas topic in this forum doesn't show any spawns at all in LS airport, although there are plenty in SF airport.

That map only shows the SCM-defined vehicle generators; the planes in the LS airport are all defined in IPL files.

 

And Phreak is correct that SAM (mostly) uses data from the original PS2 version; that's why the extra hotdog trucks that never made it to the PC are shown.
