Beta Radar?

Hmmm nice bike

Very cool finds! There being a barbershop would have made sense, considering there were two other hairstyles Niko had in pre-release trailers and screenshots, one of them being a buzzcut and another similar to the final hairsyle but combed forward and slightly longer. I'm sure they had other haircuts planned, plus jewelry. IV seems like it really was going to be a lot closer to SA in terms of options, but they really scaled back.

 

Also, I like how they've had the idea for a square radar years before V even started development.

Yeah IV was going to be a lot different. There was originally going to be countryside, and the entire map would be called "Liberty State" and contain Liberty City. There was also mention of something called the Caymen Islands or something.

 

With all the maps mods people have made, I'm surprised no one has made a map that adds some northern countryside based on the northern part of New York. Since that is what it most likely would have been based on.

The Carraways were meant to appear too.

Yes that's what I was thinking of! The Carraways, not the Cayman Islands or whatever.

I think the Carraways were meant to be their version of The Hamptons, on the far end of Long Island, so it probably would have been east of Dukes. I actually made a map years ago with both Long Island and northern New York attached to it, if I can find the thread I posted it in, I'll share it. I made it after finding out from an article someone in another thread posted that the first draft of the map was based on the entire state of New York, but they decided they wanted to just have one detailed city as opposed to an entire state with less detail. Most likely, nothing from this map made it past the drawing board, it was probably from very early planning, but it's still interesting to know about, and I wish they could have shown us this map somehow (I know I'd be interested in seeing it).

Why did they remove all this sh*t from the main game?

 

So that when they put pinball in GTA VI it gives us all a reason to go out and buy it as its never been in a GTA game before :p

Hairstyles? I would have killed to give Niko a mullet like Bono's...

I found these inside the wtd files for the phone a few months ago. It gives a better view of the barbershop and possibly an unfinished liquor store interior. They must have been taken extremely early in development, since Rockstar said Niko would have limited customization as far back as 2007.

Has anyone found that building (if it was included)?

 

If that building still was in it could have an interior, obviously inaccesible and without practically details inside, just the shape, but that could give some proof about the possible liquor stores in the beta.

 

PS. R*, you bastards could have deleted the stupid arcade machine instead of the pinball -.-

Iv'e been contacting Rockstar seeing who the team of people were who made the beta map of gta iv. Its been 8 years since gta iv came out, if they can find someone who still has the files I might ask to have them.

Do tell how much luck you had so far contacting the actual developers. And I don't mean the "We'll make sure to forward your message to the right department" automated message from the contact form.
