The Flying Rat Map

I think the in-game internet map that shows the pigeon locations should only show the locations of the pigeons that have yet to be killed. I think this would make it a lot more realistic to find them without using guides, and it would be a lot more enjoyable for those with only one left who thought they got them all (me).

 

Also, I thought at the beginning of the game it autosaved whenever I shot one, but after I beat the story there was no autosaving when I was doing my pigeon hunt. Did anyone else notice this? I think if it had autosaved for each one I might not have lost one.

Only thing is that site with the various maps on are almost useless because you can only view them in the café so you’d need a photographic memory to keep track using that. It’s easier to print a map off the net and tick which you have done so far.

 

My main gripe when it came to collecting these was the removal of the new feature first used in VCS where the pause screen map would display which balloons you had found/popped. This should have been retained in GTA 4 especially given the high amount of pigeons to find.

Yes, that's exactly what I mean. There should be some record of which ones you've already shot available to access.

 

I really don't mind having to go to the internet cafe. It's kind of annoying to have to keep going back but I guess it is supposed to be kind of a secret. That's actually how I started hunting the pigeons, I didn't want to keep checking my computer. The map itself really doesn't help all that much considering it's so small with no zooming, doesn't explain what the meaning of the bigger dots are and is missing one.

 

It seems like R* went to great lengths to improve all the annoyances of the past games, but other than the existence of the map, it's like it has gotten more annoying.
