Vice City Trivia

Kalev4ever

My 2nd guess then is the Film Studio.. confused.gif

A & D - Maybe the Film Studio was named the "A & D Studio" ?

Members of spine plant family - is it something to do with the "Sharks" a.k.a Wannabes?

-- After a certain point in the game, getting in here may prove difficult - I don´t know exactly that was the Prawn Island open in the beginning, but my thought was that if I finish the mission "The Chase", then getting into the Film Studio is complicated, cos I cant buy it yet.

-- Once in here, you'll find youself sorrounded by an array of the female gender - Suxxx and Mercedes.

-- The obstacle in your way that maymake it difficult to enter here is of significance and importance - IF there were, then in the beginning there were barricades blocking the road. After that you couldn´t get in, cos the gate was closed.

-- This place is not easily reachable until the West Island (and beyond) is unlocked - this is the part I´m still not very sure at..

I'll give you that one, mate, although the exact answer is a little more precise. icon14.gif

 

The exact answer I was looking for was the hut in the Film studio, which is located near the Northernmost entrance, which is approximately here. And here's why:-

 

-- After a certain point in the game, getting in here may prove difficult -

 

Once you are able to purchase property assets, and decide to splash out on the film studio, it will become very difficult to get into the hut because there is an obstacle in the way. This obstacle is the save game hovering icon, which is located just in front of the entrance. If you try to walk into the hut, it will not let you and will assume you want to save your game. to get over this obstacle, you need to get a two-wheeled vehicle and drive through the entrance.

 

-- Once in here, you'll find yourself surrounded by an array of the female gender -

 

There are four posters/magazine inside this hut that all contain pictures of female actresses. They are scattered around the place and make you somewhat surrounded by them.

 

-- You may get flashbacks from the past once in here -

 

This is again referring to the four women & the posters/magazines. All of which are from movies of the past, and the older generation might recognise each woman and reminisce about the past.

 

-- The obstacle in your way that may make it difficult to enter here is of significance and importance

 

The obstacle I am referring to is the hovering save game icon. If is very significant for when you need to save your game, and it can be of great importance.

 

-- This place is not easily reachable until the West Island (and beyond) is unlocked -

 

The gates to the Film studio are locked at the beginning of the game, and do not open until you purchase the property by playing through the game, unlocking the West Island in the process. The place is possible to get to at the beginning of the game, but it is reachable.

 

-- Around me I see the letters A & D, as well as members of the spine plant family, objects that can interfere with traffic as well as a waste-container -

 

This was what really gave it away. In your view from the hut, you can see both studios A & D, and right beside you is a couple of Cacti, as well as traffic cones and a bin.

 

You're up Kalev!

That was one well thought out question. icon14.gif

I honestly didn't expect the "array of the female gender" to refer to posters. I kept looking for female peds.

Hah, cheers buddy, it actually only took a couple of minutes to conjure up. I correctly answered the previous question with the intent of asking an already compiled one, but upon getting confirmation that my guess was correct, decided that the initial question I was going to ask was a little too bland, and the answer could have been found really easily (Add to that the fact that it would provoke pointless estimations and that's why I didn't really want to post it up). So, I loaded my game to try and search for some innovation in regards to the next question. My game loaded at the Film studio, and when I was able to, I toggled my view around and bingo! Two seconds of gaming and I had my question.

Very nicely made question indeed, flicko! I haven´t noticed the posters. But clever thought wink.gif

 

So my question is gonna be "Where am I?" :

*People normally don´t come to this area very often.

*You end up in this area in one of the missions.

*There´s a thing, in this area, for what you can get a 100$ reward for.

 

So there´s this specific thing in this area, that I want you to tell me.

For example: "The Ammunation area!" and this kind of answer I want you to say tounge.gif

Hope it´s not very complicated.

No, but good answer!

The secluded seaside yard near 8-ball's bomb shop?

Exactly! wink.gif

 

I ment the 8-ball shop all the time and the 100$ reward thing is the hidden package, that you find in the same area in front of one door.

And the mission, where you end up in that area is the Kaufman Cabs 3rd mission.

Cheers! I'll edit this post in a couple of minutes with a question.

 

  • You can find several numbers of me in virtually all localities of the city.
  • Some of me can grant you an elevated view.
  • If you can tread on me, do it with caution, lest you fall!

Another clue to come if nobody in the next five posters is able to get the right answer. I doubt that though.

Hyman Condos?

Before I go on here, no, I'm not singling you out MC_320, since this has been going on since the previous page. But it seems to me as if people have not read the first post and took the rules into account. Pure guesses, without any explanation as to why you guessed an answer doesn't add to this topic at all. It only induces spam, which is something I will not be allowing to carry on. All guesses with only a couple of words followed by a question mark, without any reasoning what-so-ever that have been posted in this topic could have all had an explanation as to why you members chose a specific answer. Up to now it's been going well, and it isn't that hard to elaborate on why you feel your proposed answer may be right. If this continues, I don't really see the need for this topic to continue.Yes, in other trivia topics this is ongoing, but surely you can see that they aren't in any way productive posts?

 

Arv, I'm thinking of something that epitomises Vice city and it's atmosphere; Palm trees!

 

-- You can find several numbers of me in virtually all localities of the city -

 

There are, quite literally, hundreds of these scattered all over the city. In virtually every single district, you are bound to find one of these floating around.

 

-- Some of me can grant you an elevated view -

 

Some palm trees are crooked, and you are actually able to walk up them to the very top of the tree. There's one particular tree beside the Malibu Club that will make you able to jump onto the roof of it!

 

-- If you can tread on me, do it with caution, lest you fall! -

 

You have to be very careful as you approach the tip of the tree, as you can't walk to the very top of them. When the tree stump starts to thin out, and you near the leaves it becomes very fragile, and if you take a step too far you will tumble to the ground.

 

On a side-note, these sorts of questions are brilliant, and really get your mind thinking! icon14.gif

Alright, another 'Where Am I?' type question -

 

-- I'm stood on top of thousands of pounds worth of damage, and potential profit

-- What I am stood on top of could have been very useful to me, or anybody else for that matter in the past

-- Getting here is no easy task, only a large vehicle or aircraft will get me to this exact spot

-- You'll only find pedestrians in this specific area at one point in the game

 

Where the hell am I..?!

Two very good guesses (I just knew the Junkyard would pop up), but both are unfortunately incorrect. My exact location isn't the most obvious of locations, much like the Junkyard, so you are really going to have to think about it (I hope!) in order to get it right...

The Haitians building is yeah, a good answer, but it´s not hard to enter..

 

But I´m thinking at the moment about Cortez`es ship biggrin.gif

 

-- I'm stood on top of thousands of pounds worth of damage, and potential profit - don´t know about the damage, but thousands of pounds - oh yeah!

-- What I am stood on top of could have been very useful to me, or anybody else for that matter in the past - who wouldn´t want a ship that big, with guards and beautiful women? biggrin.gif

-- Getting here is no easy task, only a large vehicle or aircraft will get me to this exact spot - well before Cortez`es last mission it´s complicated, but still possible to get to his ship! Air vehicles will do fine, about trucks - I don´t know.

-- You'll only find pedestrians in this specific area at one point in the game - the word "area" seems to make my guess wrong, but you can find peds in the beginning in the game at the ship. When the party was and after that the guards and servant.

 

Flicko, you pretty good at this! Darn good questions tounge.gif

ok heres a guess but i'm not holding out

is it the ontop of the building you destroy for Avery because it is alot of damage and has potential profit builder i assume are only there in that mission but i think you wouldnt be able to get there with a large vehicle

Both good guesses, but both of you need to think more North-west!!

 

Kalev, that was an impressive explanation, but you are indeed incorrect.

 

-- Cortez's ship did not endure a lot of damage throughout the game

-- It will still be useful for somebody (most probably Cortez) even after it disappears from the game

-- You can get to the ship using a two-wheeled vehicle, which makes your third point incorrect

-- You're right, I was referring to an area, not an object

 

Rambo_Augusta, again a good guess, but, while you can get to the very top of the destroyed construction site (with a flying Rhino), you cannot get there in any form of aircraft, since the tip is higher than you are able to fly. It has endured a lot of damage though, and will no doubt still be worth a few dollars, what with all the metal frames and that.

 

The answer is pretty difficult to correctly guess, and I will be very impressed with whoever does get it right...

The only thing that comes to my mind is the a stack of car scrap behind Ammu-nation in Downtown (the place where you go to to retrieve Mitch's bike in Hog-Tied)

-- I'm stood on top of thousands of pounds worth of damage, and potential profit Not sure about the thousand tons, but it is damage+potential profit!

-- What I am stood on top of could have been very useful to me, or anybody else for that matter in the past : Indeed.

-- Getting here is no easy task, only a large vehicle or aircraft will get me to this exact spot: the stack seems tall enough to validate this condition.

-- You'll only find pedestrians in this specific area at one point in the game: During the Hog-Tied Mission.

 

 

....Apart from that I'm completely stumped. This is the best question yet.

I'm impressed! You couldn't me more on the spot if you tried; Awesome work mate! icon14.gificon14.gif

 

I honestly thought somebody was going to say the destroyed singular car, which is in the same area & isn't too far away from the stack of cars. And, although my third point would not have made much sense, I would have still awarded the point, as you can't get much closer. Regardless, you pinpointed my exact location, here's a rundown of the explanations in full -

 

-- I'm stood on top of thousands of pounds worth of damage, and potential profit -

 

Of course, when each car was destroyed, it would have been thousands of pounds down the drain for the previous owner. I've proved that by destroying vehicles, their damage value can raise from $5,000 to around $13,000, and maybe more, so when you add four of 'em together you get quite a substantial sum of money. And although the cars are destroyed, they could, potentially, contain some parts that will be of use to the odd scrap-man looking to sell them off for a bit of profit.

 

-- What I am stood on top of could have been very useful to me, or anybody else for that matter in the past -

 

For those of you who are able to drive a car, you will know how useful and beneficial they are to you; these cars would have been no exception to some pedestrians.

 

-- Getting here is no easy task, only a large vehicle or aircraft will get me to this exact spot -

 

This is what I thought would baffle people taking a guess at the answer. The best way to get into this area is via a two-wheeled vehicle or a relatively fast vehicle. But to get on top of the four cars is seemingly impossible to do with either. So, the only way to easily do this is by using some form of aircraft, or by using a large vehicle that is also fast enough to clear the jump and land on the roof. There aren't many of these, but the odd couple, like the Ambulance & Firetruck have been proven (by myself) to clear the jump. Maneuvering them to align with the cars and them jump on top of them then becomes child's play.

 

-- You'll only find pedestrians in this specific area at one point in the game -

 

As Arv has rightly stated, the only time you will see pedestrians in this are is during the mission Hog Tied, and only then. The place is blocked off to the public by fences and walls.

 

Once again, great investigative skills Arv; you're up!

Not to worry mate, I'm sure you'll get your chance soon enough. And besides, the rules on the first post clearly state that if somebody answers a question correctly, then fails to ask the question within two full hours, anybody can ask the next question.

 

GTArv received confirmation of his correct answer over an hour and a half ago; if he doesn't post the next question in the next twenty five minutes, anybody can ask the next question.

Sry for the OT, but this was pretty sneaky question, flicko wink.gif

 

The hint: "-- Getting here is no easy task, only a large vehicle or aircraft will get me to this exact spot -" confused me. When you said, that watch more North-West, then I went playing and flied with my helicopter over the Little Haiti and Downtown.

 

I saw and remembered the place where I had to steal the Angel, but I was thinking, that you can enter it with a motorbike also. So that´s why it elimininated the place from my mind biggrin.gif

 

But, GTArv, is a real genius in these things smile.gif

I'm confused.What's the time on GTAF?on my clock it is 18:04.

The time obviously varies from where you live. The post time will correspond from what time the reply was posted in your country. For example, according to my profile, Arv's post was made at 13:57. My reply was made at 14:22, meaning at 16:22 (my local time), a new question may be asked. In other words, the next question may be posted in around three minutes. Your time settings on GTAF seem to be wrong. To correct it, do the following-

 

Click on your user-name » Click on Edit profile » Click on Board settings » Check the box that reads 'Is daylight savings time in effect?'

 

I'm not sure that will solve your problem though, since your time on GTAF is more than an hour out.

 

I was hoping to baffle somebody kalev, thank God you took the bait! I'm glad a few of you are enjoying this trivia topic, and I must say I've had a lot of fun both answering and conjuring questions. All I can ask for is for everybody to keep this up!

 

[EDIT], anybody may now ask a question..
