How many ghost cars are there?

Recommended Posts

TechniK

Why does everyone have to be so "rockstar messed up the spawn points" or "it spawns on the incline", why can't you just say something like "it's CJ's mom letting CJ know she's watching him" or something errie, I don't see why everything has to be normal.

I just think it would make the game more fun if people pretended that it was really a ghost in the car or something.

Pretend then. Go there with a camera, and and get shocked when it moves by itslef. Let your own imagination run free.

Maybe because they don't want to catspider.gif

 

There is a point though, I do like to make the game feel "Mysterious" and make it feel like all these mysteries add up and have signs and sh*t, hey....

Where does it spawn? I'm on the left horeshoe facing North, is that right?

No one's stopping you from believing mysterious stuff in a video game that have perfectly logical explanations behind them, most people prefer the logical answer because it has a tendency to ward off the relentless armies of noobs and newbs who ask where they can find bigfoot or some other random creature or psyhcotic axe wielding maniac.

what i notice is that when it spawns, it stops before hitting anything. but maybe i'm just crazy. But, if i am crazy, then what also seams feasable is that rockstar exploited the physics of the game to make a ghost car on purpose.

 

but really, it is more fun to think of ghosts.

Thanks for the spam pal, next time skip the reply button and hit the report button

 

Anyway, I'm fairly sure that it was a mishap. R* put loads of other cars like that around the place and they don't fall down hills, so it was probably just a spawning problem. You believe what you wish, but please do not ram it down other people's throats like a lot of people tend to do smile.gif

I think it's just something they forgot about or missed. Some cars don't roll when stopped on an incline of a certain degree, some will roll on even the slightest slope. So either the people who placed the vehicles forgot that type might roll, or the people who made that car one of the beat up models didn't know it would be placed on a slope.

 

I mean people make it out like Rockstar knows about everything and does everything on purpose. In reality there are so many people involved with making a game that it's easy for Guy A (who makes vehicles) to not know something that Guy B (who sets spawn points) does, especially since these areas aren't used in any missions and could be totally missed during testing.

 

As for people wanting to think it's something more, that's fine. If someone wants to think that the fog in the mountains is really "ghost fog" or something that's fine too. Maybe the car thiefs are only stealing your car because they're late for a dialysis appointment. People are free to think what they want, the only time most people care is when someone tries to state that one of these little "ideas" of what is going on is actually a fact.

It's definitely accidental, and I don't understand how anyone can think otherwise...

 

Other vehicles less "ghostly" than a beat up Glendale drive themselves because they spawn on an incline.

The vortex north of Bayside, and the sedan south of LS stadium.

If there were no other rundown cars or no other cars than moved by themselves; the ghost car argument might have some credence but with the other factors it's ridiculous and annoying...

Again, you mean it's ridiculous and annoying when people try and say that Rockstar did it on purpose with the intention of making it seem like a "Ghost" is driving the car right?

 

Because I've seen some topics where people make stories or something (One of them was like a "bus trip" type thing where somebody took a few gang members around SA) that are filled with placing meanings on things that aren't or weren't originally intended.

 

Because if someone uses the fact that the car rolls in a series of pictures, or a vid to make it seem like there is a ghost, or a midget you can't see or anything else, then I don't really mind it. The same way I don't mind when someone makes it like the dents in the car are from a bigfoot attack or some other silly thing.

 

The only time it gets on my nerves is when people try to say that these things are supposed to have such unrealisitc meanings, or when they say something like "rockstar obviously meant for us to think that <place any in-game event or object here> was a ghost/ufo/bigfooot/any other dumbass thing"

 

But yeah, the rolling cars is the one I find most amusing when taken the wrong way because it happens with so many other vehicles. The vortex is one thing because they will roll fairly quickly on any amount of incline, but the spot south of LS stadium (in Play Del Seville) that you mentioned actually happens with all sorts of vehicles. The one sedan (a Tahoma I think) is usually the one to spawn, but I've also seen a Huntley and a few other vehicle types spawn there, and they all move/roll down the ramp, just to varying degrees.

It's not a "ghost car" all it is a old car that spawns on the side of a hill, then rolls down. If you happen to be at the bottom of the hill like you were, then you get hit by it.

 

It's not a ghost car, just Rockstar's strange spawn.

It usually happens when you travel or enter a location faster than the vehicle can spawn, thus making it spawn all of a sudden when you reach it. Therefore, it rolls down and hits you, a tree or anything else in the way when you're present.
