Helicopter question

Recommended Posts

black_magic
Hey everyone im new to the forum but i was just wondering if we all have a helicopter in Vice City and can land anywhere but the makers are dividing up the city like in GTA3 supposedly what stops us from just flying over in a helicopter? or did they gip us and leave all copters in the last section?

Huh? You got it wrong. Vice City is totally open from the start. There are no 'sections'. Where did you hear that? You can go anywhere, anytime. :pp

R* changed it, dude. sorry. look at a gta site under news and you will most likely see it somewhere. the helicopter will probably be like GTA3's dodo in which it is on the final "level", or island or whatever. that's how it will probably be, so gamers have to play the actual storyline to actually get somewhere, not just mess around everywhere from the start. so basically in my speculation, helicopters will be on the last island! although one thing keeps making me ponder: what happens when you hit the edge of the "world"? blue hell? automatically turning you around? death? these questions plaguing us about VC will just have to wait to be answered Oct. 29th...

AARREE YYOOUU SSEERRIIOOUUSS??!!??!! NOOOOOO!!! Why'd they do that?!!? Are you kidding?! Ohhh no.... That is soo lame. They actually split it up, again?! Oh man... this can't be happening... Aww... that's so unrealistic. Since when did they change it? They were saying for the longest time it would be 'open from the start'... Oh well, maybe in the month remaining they'll change their mimd... doubt it though... :*(  :nervous:  :sui:

i heard that it was divided on a interview with the guy from gamespot, and as far as reaching end of the world it will prolly be like when u hit the end in the dodo, either an invisible wall or just tons of gliches till u cant see and en up in the subway some how!

Dude, the choppers will be on the second or third island, as for boats preventing from going island to island, who knows, but like in GTA3 the better stuff was in the second and third island, the chopper which is "better" will probably be later on, but nobody knows.

I LOVE STEPH

R* said that the helicopter will be -VERY- hard to hijack, they didnt say anything about the helicopter being on the last misson or anything. and where did you hear that the island is split up, that'll suck if it was.

 

But it will still rule :r*:  :rah:

Yea... R* Confirmed Vice City to be split up into 3 sections... just like the first one. You only get one section every like 75 missions completed or summat.

 

It was on the front page of IGN a few weeks back. And yea... I also feel seriously ripped off.

It was intitially supposed to be that way, but nope, R* changed it... I wanted it completely open too. It's sorta unrealistic. What are the problems gonna be this time? Not broken bridges I hope... Anyway, the missions this time are most likely gonna be very hard and long... so we might not see the second or third island for awhile... Well, the fact that Vice City is gonna be way more big, colorful and just better looking in general with side-missions and peds, weapond etc, I don't think it will matter being locked into one section for awhile. But I really wanted that helicopter ASAP... :dontgetit:

Noone has said that there's gonna be Islands like GTA3. Just certain parts of the city which you can only get to after certain missions.

imagine if you got to a piont and there was a stop sign saying you could not go past and a  big invisible wall, that would be sooo, lame. i wonder how they'll split it?

it was originally thought that the entire island would be open from the start.  There have been recent reports that this in untrue tho.  Neither of them have been confirmed so ur guess is as good as mine.  Personally I wish the entire island was one mearly so I didn't have to cross so many damn bridges.  maybe 2 islands wouldn't be so bad.

where did any of you hear this rumor?  Anyway I kinda think it's a good idea to split it up, in GTA3 I had a better time exploring island by island other then just exploring one big one.  Either way it's gonna rock.

If it were one big one can any of you even begin to imagine the lag? GTA3 was bad enough. In VC it has improved textures, water effects and is almost always sunny! Shadows peope.... Now R* might just mean that the city IS split up but only so the whole city isn't loaded from the start, but you don't need to jump bridges to get to the other parts.

 

I think places like the airport and army base etc will be locked up. Subways.. mm might be locked up.

:r*:  actually hasnt confirmed that it will be split up, originally the whole island was open but now rumors are going around that they changed it at the last minute. well if this was true wouldnt there be more news on it on the official website and on the other websites because there isnt i think its bullsheet!!

 

but still i recon u wont be able to get the helis from the start either bcus the security around it is high or that certain areas are locked but i doubt the whole map is divided!!

Now i will cut it out in pieces for you!

 

NOTE: i haven't read the WHOLE topic, so i might say something one of you said, again...

 

The helicopter will NOT act like the dodo, cuz the dodo was a plane and the helicopter, i know a guy, who knows someone from R*, and he told me, that in GTA3, it wasn't the mean, that you could fly, cuz the roof was not done, and then R* thought: "What the hack? We make all the roof done in the next game!" And then they could make Helicopters, cuz they fly 100 times better then a plane.

 

Where you can steal it? I not tried this game, but if there isn't a airport, i don't think there is something called water. Cuz if there wasn't airport in it? WTF? What the hell is that kind of a city. And where does Helicopters hang out? At the airport of couse.

 

And if you have keep yourself updated, then you would know there is 2 kinds of Helicopters ( i have only seen 2 ) to steal, the police one, and another for fun! :p

 

So i guess that flying the Helicopters, WOULDN'T be like flying the dodo! Just so you know it :p

Well, if it's anything like Miami...there will be loads of bridges and loads of water.  (I hear there are twice as many boat missions in Vice).

 

I can imagine...even if they aren't locked some quick load times over a long bridge like in GTA3.

 

I hope it's all open to start with...cept maybe some secret goodie areas that certain missions open.  I don't mind waiting for the helicopter either which will probably be on a locked airport base that's for the Vice Squad or something.

 

It would be cool if there was ANOTHER helicopter you can get at the start...like one of those NEWS CHOPPER 5 helicopters on top of a building that's a television station.  Then you can listen to a live report on your radio about you stealing it.  lol

dope

I wouldn't want everything to be unlocked and available right from the start.. gotta have some motivation/reward for moving on in the game.. I mean.. imagine taking a month to beat the game and at the end not having 1 single thing you didn't have to start with, then I would feel ripped off.

 

And even if they do split it into 3, or 2; I've heard R* say a few times that the city will be about 3x the size, so theoretically the islands would all be 3x the size of the last game, so each island would be about the size of the entire GTA III city... But my guess is as good as any of yours of course.

Judging from the maps that I have seen, plus the screen shot showing a bridge leading from one side of the city to the other, which was cut off. I would guess that the city is split in half, once so many missions are done the other half of the city is unlocked. Only thing which puts doubt on that is the fact in a Gamespot or magazine preview (can't remember which) it says parts of the city will not be available from the beginning, howver it does not say that the city will be split up, guess we will have to wait and see...

Hmmm Beer

Even though it was frustrating in GTA3 having the 3 islands - I'm glad they did.

 

In the help section here I always replied to requests for tricks to jump the broken bridge by saying, 'no, don't cheat, earn it and it'll feel 10 times better.'

 

Does anyone know anything about timed missions? More, fewer? I hate them and prefer stealthy ones like Grand Theft Aero.
