Has anyone seen a tampa

Recommended Posts

GTA3Rockstar
I've never heard of this car before. Does it actually exist?

 

where did you get the idea it exists as i have seen no credible proof of it

Just did a few Google searches, apparently the Brady games guide has listed it as being in the game confused.gif

They could've had it taken out before they published their guides.

The rear window is slightly longer. But they are very similar.

Camera is in a different spot.

 

Lighting is different.

 

The car is parked at a slightly different angle due to the small terrain ramp in front of garage.

 

Same car.

Yeah. I agree. It is way too similar. But I still think the Tampa is in game.

It was already delayed before being released, if it isn't in the game I doubt that they wouldn't remove it during the delay period. However, you could be right. Especially seeing as there have been mistakes like this in the previous guides and there is currently no real evidence of it being in the game.

I gotta be honest, the more i look the more it's starting to look like a Sabre GT.

I think it's the angle (not sure, but i think it looks slightly different for some reason...can't put my finger on it) and especially the lighting on the Sabre picture that's throwing us off, because they look VERY similar.

 

I don't know about you guys, but i can't remember seeing two different cars in the game that look THAT much alike.

Arg! Stop, I'm losing faith!

 

But seriously, if Mr Hell No.. contact is BSing, all we'll have to go with is the Brady Games questionable screeny. Not good is it...?

Its existence in the CARGRPS file almost certainly means it's within the game.

 

I believe its hidden like the Sultan RS, and we'll have to hunt for it tounge2.gif

Maybe that's it. Maybe the codes and such will hold the answer. That and anyone from R* or Brady actually giving an answer. Perhaps a Deus Ex Machina to save us from scanning the streets of LC when we could be having fun?

I stand on that that they are two different cars.

 

Also must consider that TLAD may have the Phoenix car bug from SA where it doesn't spawn in traffic like it should.

 

I prefer secret hidden car theory.

If you look at the bottom of the back window there is a chrome strip. The 'Tampa' has more hollow rims (that have a lighter gradient) with a smaller wheel size. The rear seems to have the same chrome bumper and lights, but they're beveled in a little with the sides of the car having slight parts poking out. The Sabre GT's roof has a slight downwards curve to it, whereas the 'Tampa' is more linear. In addition to this, the middle (edge) of the bonnet has a triangle part sticking out the front end, where as on the 'Tampa' it is rectangular.

 

Anyone can make an analysis, see.

Well, surely the code must have a spawn loaction, or they'd just be dropping from the sky or summin lol, games won't do things unless the code tells them to (obviously) so we could try to find a spawn location in the code, and if there isn't one, it doesn't spawn i guess.

 

Edit: i know people tried before (like that guy who said at the airport / industrail area) but it's just got to be in that code somewhere if the car spawns

I think those differences may just be chalked up to image quality. Let's face it, if the Tampa never existed, in a game guide or otherwise, and we saw that screen cap would you honestly think it was a new car? Wouldn't you just say "That's a Sabre." sly.gif

hmmm my TLAD knowledge is fairly much squat, but perhaps they wouldn't add a car unless it was to be used in one of the new missions? maybe one of the new characters drives it, who is it we see standing in front of it in that pic? lol

No... what you mean is that it looks like the car in the picture posted on the previous page. The Sabre GT looks nothing like the Tampa in the original picture in the Brady Games guide.

Well, the only new car i've seen driving around outside of missions is the Towtruck.

The Regina, Slamvan and Gang Burrito (not 100% sure about that one) i've only seen in missions or when Terry delivers guns.

I've heard (can't confirm myself though) that atleast the Regina will spawn on the roads if you're already driving it, but other than that it won't spawn outside of that one mission as far as i know.

 

So you might be right.

I probably wouldn't know what car it was, and I'd just assume that I've passed it before, but have never taken notice to it. But if it was just comparing all those cars alone on the previous page (and we didn't know there was a Tampa) I would probably look hard and realize that it is in fact a different car; but yes, there are similarities with the Sabre GT.

i still think theyre completely different cars, the only thing that makes them similar is that the tampa was probably modelled off the sabre's frame.

Well why don't we set up a "team" of people to search for it, and give each person a small - medium area (depending on how many people are willing to search) and just if every person searches their area thoroughly, we should get an answer to if it's in the game or not.

 

Only, this could be a big waste of time if it is mission specific or something, so bear that in mind if you don't want to waste time lol

 

Also, has anyone searched the sea to see if it spawns there? colgate.gif

 

Edit: team thing is kinda a sad idea, but you guys seem to really want to know if it's in the game or not lol

Man its the same car. The car in front of the garage is entirely inconsistent with the photo of the tampa as well

 

EDIT: someone beat me to posting tampa pic so -SNIP-

 

There are no defined tire upskirts like in the tampa pic.

 

The silver black dotted rim would show up regardless of the lighting.

 

The hood is missing the double set of indentations, its not a good sign either that the double hood scoop is missing.

 

The more aggressive angular dip forward of the front side of the car is missing from the car in front of garage.

Like i said before, i think the camera angle of the Sabre GT picture looks a little to high, and maybe it should move a little to the right too.

About the rims, the Tampa picture has way to poor quality to really see the rims.

And the hood in the Tampa picture does look a little straighter, but again i think that might have something to do with the angle (not to mention it is open, the other one is closed).

 

That's just my opinion though.

 

I really think we need a better, higher quality picture of the car in the opening sequence to be really sure wheter it's a Sabre GT or not.

I think it's because they are the same car, exept one is a 4 door the other is a 2 door.

 

In other words they are both the same "family" of cars.

 

I don't think the tampa and sabre gt should be in any way associated with each other, they look completly different according to the Brady Games pic.
