After all of this, we'll do all this co-ordinate cracking to find that it's in some really simple place we've missed XD

The Tampa does appear in cargrp.dat and vehicles.ide

cargrp line:

"ripley, airtug, bus, mrtasty, perennial2, feroci2, forklift, gburrito, slamvan, packer2, pbus, yankee2, tampa, diabolus, double2, hakuchou, hexer, innovation, revenant, # POPCYCLE_GROUP_ONLY_IN_NATIVE_ZONE (These cars will only appear in the zones that they belong in)"

 

vehicles line:

 

"tampa, tampa, car, TAMPA, TAMPA, [email protected], NULL, 100, 999, 0.2240, 0.2240, 0, 5, 1.0 -"

 

And since its been a while since i messed around with GTA files im too rusty to say wether that means it spawns somewhere or not...

Since they are both together in that line, is it possible that the Tampa might only spawn during a certain mission like the Prison Bus?

Indeed! biggrin.gif I remember a mission in San Andreas in which you had to blow up some sort of factory near your first San Fierro safehouse. You used a Tampa rigged with a bomb. Has anybody checked inside the garage you blow up in Bohan? Who knows, maybe we'll find the Tampa there?

I wonder if the NULL in this line tells the game to NOT spawn it?

 

"tampa, tampa, car, TAMPA, TAMPA, [email protected], NULL, 100, 999, 0.2240, 0.2240, 0, 5, 1.0 -"

 

Anyone more experienced in this know what the null means?

 

They could have it added in the code for the next DLC if not in this one......

I would think that [email protected] means it has a VERY low spawn rate........and though it is a stretch to see if Eddie Low has one spawn near his home, it's worth a shot. *Shrugs*

No you silly. tounge.gif

 

If that is anything like San Andreas, "null" probably means it uses the normal car animation, so when you enter it, it won't load the bike, chopper, boat, truck, etc. animation. And I think that "[email protected]" means it's found on poor neighbors.

 

Could be wrong though. I want to buy TLAD so I can drive this car!

All I can say is that tomorrow I shall be searching with all my might in the airport area. It seems to be linked to many of the specialist vehicles. However, judging by it also being with vehicles that spawn in other specific locations I'm wondering whether you may find it somewhere else. Perhaps, being a sweet muscle car, its around BOABO and Brucie's area. We need to think about places in New York where you'd likely find cool muscle cars. Maybe there is some showroom that exclusively does them?

 

I don't code or decrypt code, but are those numbers after it some sort of map co-ordinate?

Yep, although I don't generally deal in these things, I doubt that Low means Eddie low. More likely to be the set spawn rate if you ask me.

 

@Derelict Frog; I checked out the area around Brucie earlier and found nothing.

I checked every inch of Boabo yesterday, and found nothing.

 

Considering what VinnyGouviea said, I'll take a look around the many slums of Alderny.

You'll normally always find muslce cars at Autoeroticar. I've just checked there though and it isn't there.

 

I'm going to tip Alderney upside down looking for it over the next couple of days.

I assume they are co-ordinates, and so it would be helpful if we could compare that line to the lines of other vehicles.

Just a thought, but perhaps this vehicle will be the one Luis Lopez will use in the next DLC. Maybe we have to wait until then.

I also thought this might be it when I first heard about the car, but then found out that it's listed in the Official Brady Games Guide as being in TLaD.

Well, if it's in TLAD then we'll definitely find it at some point in the next couple of days me thinks.

Hope so.

 

If I were Rockstar, I would block those things from traffic and set no parking spots SPECIFIC for the Tampa, so it could only appear on random car generators, wich sometimes can show a Infernus, and other times it shows a Faggio.

What vehicle do you guys use when you're driving around searching for the Tampa? Do you use any muscle car or something? There's certain vehicles that spawn every time you drive a specific vehicle. For example, every time I drive a Stallion, these vehicles always show up in traffic:

 

Coquette

Ruiner

I've mainly been using the Rhapsody, Dukes, and Stallion. So yeah, a couple of muscle cars and one of the new cars too in the hope it might trigger another of the new cars.

I doubt we'll be seeing it driving around. It'll be hidden away somewhere like the Sultan RS. It seems to be a case of look in the least obvious place and it'll probably be there.

I have a question, does the Sultan RS still spawn at the old building in Alderney?

 

Try driving all the sports cars or the beaten up rusty vehicles too.

Yeah, it's in a mansion at the end of a dirt road, near a Burger Shot.

Yeah I know, but I figured it was worth a shot while I was having to drive anyway.

Yes, it does still spawn there in TLAD.

Did some searching myself but found nothing. However, I got a little too excited when I saw the Sabre GT spawned around Alderney. I thought it was the Tampa. Anyway, I'll do some more searching and I'll see what I can find. I do believe that the Tampa is somewhere around Dukes/Broker.

I'm no closer to finding a spawn point in the TLAD files, if anyone knows roughly where to look then that would speed things up (I'm not sure where GTA4 fixed car spawns are stored?)

Try opening it with the PC program. You can even try to rename it to *.wpl .

If your going with the Eddie Low thing look in Westminster, since thats where he's most likely to live (random encounter makes you take him to his home.)
