Yeah, judging by a lot of his pictures, it's clear that he likes to incorporate the odd modification to his game. What you see on the beach is a modification of a Dirt track. Nothing strange about that. smile.gif

Yeah, I like to modd. But I make backup of the files, so if any errors, I make them back to their places. Nothing happens if u do modds correctly. Let's keep the topic out of modds. Just look at the pics. I went to the blown building, & went to the 2nd floor, and out of the window. Besides the windows which were defected 'cause of the big bang, there are invisible windows too.

What happend with me: I was going to get some fun, going to print works to start some war. I entered in my car (I don't getted any Police Stars) then a cop runned to my car, opened the door and arrested me. When i respawned, i was in Vice City Mall. After i leave the Mall, i was inside The Ocan Beach Hotel. That was some crazy sh*t.

That's not really a strange incident, since that actually happens on every-body's game. Once you complete Avery's mission - Demolition Man, and the construction site blows to smithereens, the walls on the highest reachable floor will not be solid, and you can drive & walk right through them.

Again, nothing strange about that. Right where you are located is a lamppost, you would have driven into the lamppost, resulting in shards of glass falling to the floor. Taking a snap of it then results in the effect you had.

 

Claude3guy, that's very freaky! It sounds as if you've got the teleporter installed, though I assume that is not the case..?

I even repaired the car but that went on, & smth was disturbing, I couldn't drive fast. That never happened to me before.

I´m pretty sure, that some of you here, doesn´t know a little secret about Cop Land mission, so I´m gonna post it here:

Well, when you got to lure 2 police officers into the garage, you get the cop uniform. Now don´t continue on the mission, but do anything you like! Shoot cops, rob shops: you won´t get a wanted level!

Cops will run away from you if you shoot them.

 

Funny and strange stuff definitely! So if ur a cop, does it let you do things, that you aren´t actually allowed to do? biggrin.gif

But for those, who you don´t like cops, this can be very useful. I mean robbing shops. So have it a go and check it for your self wink.gif

Yeah, it's an absolutely stunning thing to know about, and the fun you can have with this is second to none. Did you discover this yourself mate?

 

What makes it more awesome is that not only will it be useful for robbing stores and whatnot, but Lance will follow you around wherever you go, and if you shoot somebody, he'll pull out his shotgun and also proceed to open fire. It is relatively strange, since, although the police assume you are one of them, if anybody on the force were to go on a rampage killing everyone in sight, surely you'd do something about it..?!

 

I quite like to shoot the Police car and watch the driver get out and sprint away; never thought a cop could run so fast!

No, I read about it in another GTA site tounge.gif

But I just wanted to post it here, to let those know, who don´t know about it yet. It can be very helpful and is pretty fun.

 

Another strange thing is with a cheat.

I just mess around with cheats if I get bored and when I use the clothes changing cheat "stilllikedressingup" or smth like that, and when I become as a police officer or a SWAT team member or any other law-man, then when I shoot at anything, then I will have a wanted level.

 

VC is full of strange stuff! biggrin.gif

That's because when you incorporate cheats, a la the skin change, the police will still see you as Tommy Vercetti, and won't assume you look any different. Whereas if you change costume to the cop uniform, which is a prominent figure in the game, they will see you as a cop. what is strange is that wearing the same uniform outside of the mission does not make you immune to the law, as if you step out of line, you will be targeted. This trick can only be exploited during the mission.

I even didn't get how it happened. But that was really cool. I'll share all cool shots. I've got one. This shot was made by my friend. He did this parking. I did the shot.

I've done something similar to that before, but that was when I was making the most of the Taxi boost. Never have I done such a thing in a conventional vehicle like the Admiral. How did your friend go about getting in that position...? Was it intentional or completely out of the blue?

He just wanted to enter the mansion by car. But got this position. So that's that.

When u want to enter the mansion by car, it's always puts u with the front to the doors.

I've noticed that too (it isn't the case with any two-wheeled vehicle though). Not only is it strange, but it can be extremely annoying to the ill-informed, as, one would assume, that they would keep their finger on the accelerator, and thus drive back out of the mansion.

I've got another strange issue today, on 1st of June. I usually loaded my save, & suddenly saw that the trash, awards, & other stuff has gone. I immideatelly loaded another save. But everything was ok there. Then loaded the previous, went out & some seconds later reentered the mansion. & everything was already ok. That was an insane trick.

Besides yesterday I started a new game to see how that french guy entered that building, after that I went upstairs the Washington Mall, & saw that the rampage is missing. What the hell is going on with the game? Who can tell me?

Here are the pics.

Maybe it´s already been said, but it´s strange that vehicles sometimes spin in a strange way on the roads. I have noticed the thing when I go to Downtown from Little Haiti. Then upcoming vehicles strangely spin and drive then normally..

As is usually the case with you, the only thing I can put it down to is the modifications you have implemented onto your game, though I'm not entirely sure. Did they disappear after you added another mod perhaps? Or was it out of the blue? I must say that those massive lamps look very strange all on their lonesome.

 

 

The clothes icon tells me you were on a mission like The Party or Riot, is this the case? Obviously, rampages will not show and are not available to you if you are on a mission, meaning that in every location you go to, you will not find the floating icon.

 

kalev, are you playing the game on the PS2 platform? I've noticed that too. The game can be pretty slow to respond, and quite often when you're travelling at speed towards somewhere, you can see buildings & structures almost being sketched out, as well as vehicles spawning from the sky. The most common place to see the vehicles is exactly where you stated, there are other places as well (that includes missions).

I'm not sure, 'cause don't remember, but maybe you're right & I was going to pass the party. & somehow went to the roof of Washington Mall. Don't know why.

& That's why thought that the rampage icon is missing. blush.gifconfused.gif

 

P.S. What about the mods, I only installed gang fearfull mod, to avoid Haitians' attack. Could that cause stuff disappearing?

I have seen many pictures posted by you where you have been showing modifications off. Stuff like player skins, multiple car modifications,, you've even added a dirt track on the beach & I can also remember seeing a sunken cruise-liner beside Leaf Links on an image from you. Implementing modifications can stuff up your game in many ways, and you seem to encounter many strange incidents. When you couple the two together, it becomes the obvious answer that modifications may be the cause of all of this.

 

I'm sure it's wicked fun, though!

I like to see Tommy in a new clothes. It's rather easy. It's all matter of the MS paint prog. U just have to copy & paste the clothes' parts. But carefully. Otherwise the skin can be corrupted. It's better to copy on an existed .bmp skin.

What about the stunt track, I did it very carefully, not to damage the game. That's all. I repeat. I like to see Tom in a new stuff. Seems like name "Tommy" is way too childish. He's a man of age at 36(in-game), & 59/60 in real life. So he must be Tom/Thom. & just Thomas. If he could only exist! confused.gif I like his name's all possibilities.

Regardless, you must admit that you do like to mod your game a bit. I have nothing against that, in-fact I'd do it myself if I had the resources, but you've got to be aware of the knock-on effects they can potentially produce. Putting too many into your game can damage it's performance to no end.

 

I wonder, has anybody else besides Vercetti2008 occured any strange incidents lately?!

Are you saying you were on the top of the lighthouse, and a Police Maverick flew into you? I don't know how that's possible, since, no matter what wanted level you have, the Police Maverick will not appear if you are on the ledge or the roof of the lighthouse. The game assumes you are inside the building, thus eradicating the need to spawn any form of aircraft.

That's quite impossible. Echoing what flicko said, when you are on the lighthouse top, you are actually inside it, though it may seem not. So it is impossible for ANY vehicle to spawn outside, even cars. whatsthat.gif

No land vehicle will come to you if you are fairly close to the lighthouse, regardless of if you are in it or not. The only form of VCPD that do show if you are not in the lighthouse is the cops, the Police Maverick & the occasional Predator (who pose next-to-no threat towards you).

 

Also, on other rooftops where the game assumes you are inside the building, vehicles will spawn on the road below. The Malibu club & Vercetti Estate are two examples. Probably has something to do with the area & the terrain-type.

That still will not happen. If the chopper was giving you pursuit, it will immediately disappear from the moment you take as much as one step inside the lighthouse, since the game assumes you are inside it..

 

If it was still there, and you are telling the truth, then that occurence is unbelievably strange as it goes against the games programming.
