Vice City Beta map

I found this detailed video which explains EVERYTHING!

 

 

 

 

Start debating and discussing. Is this true or false? Were there marshlands and swamps? Why did they remove it?

 

Please, no retarded: "I think Rockstar hates swamps so they removed it!" posts or something like that.

Firstly, the black outlines are simply there because the map is just a LOD map, and only the large islands need those lods.

See, the small islands are loaded all the time.

 

And i don't see the point. Marshlands? Soooo?

R* simply decided the game wouldn't be gloomy. Swamps induce boredness and gloom. So, no swamps.

They're just not fun.

 

The only evidence of swamps is one map, which might have been planted.

Also, isn't this vid old? I've seen it about 5 times.

See those black spots in the midlle of Vice city? People reckon those are swamps. They could be! I'm not contradicting anything, but I think they could also be small dams

Pause the video at 4:31, now look at this-

Notice anything? Yeah, the blak spots in the middle of Vice city are actually the islands; Starfish island, Leaf links and Prawn island, and were probably in prodution at the time, just like the bridges, as there not on there as well.

 

If Swamplands were in vice city though, I'm sure rockstar would've thought of something to not make them dull, everything in the game was enjoyable after all.

I'm replaying VC again (Which is weird, since I haven't played the story mode since 2003, I only used it for stunting purposes) and it made me feel like that 8 year old boy again. Damn, I can't remember how many hours I spent with III and VC when I was a young boy.

I remember reading about it a while ago but still don't understand why they'd put a map on there.

There's probably a texture of that LOD somewhere in the .img, but it would be a pain in the ass to find.

Flicko has proven what those black spots are. They are the islands outlines.

(As you might already know.)

 

As for swamps, that would be cool. But, where would they be?

Little Haiti? On the top of Washington Beach? The Golf Course?

Look at the LODmaps Dolven posted. You can see the Island extends in the middle, and puddles on the map. Those are swamps.

What black spots are you on about it looks like the actually map in the game to me.

In the beta, Tommy's outfit was blue^^

The police cars was white, they changed it to green caus it would be more easier to see.

 

There was a grenade launcher.

 

There was a mini SMG

 

Tommy's face was different and his hair was darker.

 

And more if you check in the official strategy guide for ps2.

 

I remember in the mission The Driver, you were suposed to drive a yellow admiral, not a sentinal.

Nice vid, but however I disagree with the swamplands. Those black parts seem to be in the exact location of Leaf Links, Prawn Island and Starfish Island. I didn't really understand your "sand part", can you clear it up for me a bit?

Tommy's outfit is already blue, it's just that in the beta, it was a bit darker. There was indeed a Grenade Launcher. There was a Shorter version of the MP5, and there were land mines. Tommy's hands were also more detailed in the beta. I don't remember seeing that you used to drive a yellow Admiral in The Driver.

Yeah but i seen the Vice City guide for the last time like 4 years ago and Tommy was driving a Yellow admiral (not 100% sure)

 

For me, Tommy,s outfit looks like green instead of light blue.

 

And i remember something: I was making a Skin for Tommy on Microsoft paint. I was trying to put the blue outfit of the beta on the original but when i was pasting the blue one to the green one, the blue one changed to green. And if you choose the blue colour, it was a green colour. Weird glitch.

 

If someone have the official strategy guide, it would be helpful to know more in the beta.

The beta SMG is still in the game files and can replace the original SMG

It also comes with its own icon in the HUD

 

Also I think Rockstar hates swamps so they removed it

Few people know this but in GTA SA, You can find the Vice City Beta Map in a trash can in Angel Pine.

 

 

 

Weird eh? I was wondering if you could find that texture somewhere in the San Andreas files for the PC. You Should try and see if you could find it. Then we could have a detailed map of everything in Beta Vice City!!!

Must I repeat myself? No mines, and the map in SA is a 64^2.

That's how they looked in the 80s. I think I saw it on Miami Vice ages ago.
