So you know Trevor's pal Floyd and his cousin Lloyd.

 

Lloyd Floyd is the real name of SF-UR DJ Hans Oberlander.

So the other day I was playing as Trevor and getting ready to start "Fair Game", and pull up and park at that cool lodge with the huge Paul Bunyan-esque statue, when all of a sudden I hear people screaming... and then that telltale growl. "But wait", I said, "I thought cougars couldn't get into civilian dwellings and straight-up keeled over and died". But sure enough, I look over and see a cougar just mauling the sh*t out of some poor woman. Then it looked over at me and charged, and I pulled out a handgun and put it down.

 

I distinctly remember playing the 360 version and being chased by a cougar, only to have it die out of nowhere after I ran into the same lodge area, so I definitely wasn't expecting this.

Ponsonbys oddly enough doesn't have a cash register.

The clerk in Ammunation also has a gun and will shoot back.

i got something new about planes in pc version.

With latest updates installed you can damage one side of any plane and it will keep working with other engine, only side effect being occasional spontaneous pitching to the broken engine side. it makes airliner jumbo jets extra strong, you can explode any smaller aircraft on any side of the plane and only one engine fails most of the time, other 3 remain working (depending on explosion magnitude you may have broken only one of the engines of one side which will leave your jumbo jet still stable, commonly this is the result now). for example i blew up the blimp with my wing and inner engine of right side died out, plane kept going normal.

this has actually been implemented into few planes in last gen as well. few examples: vestra, cuban 800, mallard, duster and i think other single propeller planes (single propeller planes have two sides in front which will be damaged separately), one of the private jets in LSIA (dont remember which model exactly) and surprisingly the besra which will never degrade to crashing state after shooting engine, but it will pop sparks and "cough" like other planes engines which remain working and imitate overload (this will not happen when damaging one of the engines on airliner jet in pc version since it's designed to handle that).

 

EDIT: Rockstar "fixed" this fun effect via latest update (note the time of edit), engine other half starts degrading as soon as it has been ruynning now for few minutes then it all starts with fuel tank degrading further and dragging working engine(s) along to the doom!

You can't take cab fares with a dead passenger in the back. You can accept the jobs, but any potential passenger approaching the cab will see the body and run away.

Using Franklin's ability he can push the Insurgent to a top speed of exactly 200mph

Today, I was doing some cab driving as Michael and dropped a fare off at what I think was one of the Von Crastenburg hotels. I called in to dispatch and got another fare nearby, and when I tried to turn the cab around, I scared a guy (not the fare I'd dropped off) and made him run away. I drove over close to Dr. Friedlander's office, and as my new fare was getting in, I heard a scream. I turned the camera and saw somebody who I'm 99% sure was the guy I scared earlier fall off the nearby overpass and onto the highway (not sure who else it could've been, since peds don't fall off things unless they're running away from something). He got up and brushed it off like nothing happened.

Franklin's license plate says FC1988, making him 25 when the game came out.

 

Lamar's van also has his initials too.

Judging by some of the porn magazines lying around his trailer, Trevor has an amputee fetish.

Crush depth in the ocean will still kill you even with invincibility activated in Director mode. Invincibility remains active as your health continues to go down.

I am sorry if this already known

 

If Protagonist get caught in explosion (assuming they survived) They take longer to stand up (best seen using trevor special ability)

 

Stores (except mask store) in Vespucci Beach are all Closed during Night

 

Michael walk slower than Trevor or Franklin

 

Option C is actually canon ending :p

 

Michael, Unlike Trevor or Franklin, never hop in a convertible car, instead he will always open the door

 

Females take longer to enter car

 

Thunderstorm in Grand Senora Desert are more aggresive than other places

 

Pedestrian may randomly Insult Trevor Hygine or Dress when playing as him, this may also happen when hanging out with him, which make him automatically insult back

 

You should Carry weapon Anywhere to prevent any asshole to call the cop or pick a fight with you

 

Naturally Thunder usually happen only once when raining

 

Hostile Animals is scared with the protagonist when Invicibility cheat is activated

Today, I was playing as Michael and decided to hang out with Franklin. I drove him to the Yellow Jack Inn in Sandy Shores, played some darts with him, and dropped him off at Ace Liquor before deciding to drive over to Trevor's to see if he was doing anything interesting there. I found him tossing grenades around in his yard, and he seemed to acknowledge Michael, but didn't argue with him (I'm at the point in the story where they're about to go on the Union Depository heist, so normally he and Michael will be hostile to each other if they meet in free roam, and can't do any activities together). I then switched control over to Trevor; Michael got back into his car and drove off without saying anything. A police chase started, and I decided to run after them as Trevor just to see if they'd stop soon and shoot it out.

 

But while I was running after them, I stumbled across Michael's car parked right in the middle of the street. He was nowhere to be found, and the engine wasn't running, so it must have just spawned for some reason. I jumped in and started driving aimlessly around, wondering if I'd get an angry call from him like you usually do if you take his car as Trevor or Franklin. I didn't get any calls...but, bizarrely enough, I did come across Franklin standing by the side of road (he might've been browsing his phone), even though it'd been long enough since I dropped him off as Michael that I figured he would've despawned ages ago. He asked Trevor if he wanted to hang out; I accepted, we played another round of darts, and I dropped him off for good back at the liquor store, driving Michael's car the whole time. It was weird.

when you equip the Stealth Outfit, and then go in the interaction Menu and you select a mask or a different glasses, the balaclava will start Clipping with them, this means you can wear the balaclava and a mask or glasses at the same time.

but when you in that state decide to change your Outfit, then the beard and hair will Reset to default look.

i don't know if it works with Trevor or Franklin, i only did it with Michael.

There is a hospital in East Los Santos (St. Fiacre Hospital) that for some reason you will not respawn at when you die.

Saint Fiacre was known as a healer and holy man in the 7th century. He is also the Patron Saint of those suffering from venereal diseases (another case of Rockstar's humor).

The Explosive bullets (1-999-BANGBANG) cheat applies to the Buzzard's cannon as well, turning it into an extremely devastating force when applied.

I rarely ever play single player but today for some reason before joining online, I walked around with Trevor for a bit. I had no clue you could steal the jumbo jet from the airport now. It used to be that it just circled around the airport tarmac, invincible.

They always said that it was impossible to land the Jumbo Jet at the McKenzie Airfield...

 

 

They were wrong.

Comet;

Intruder;

Stratum;

T20;

Infernus;

Stinger(both versions);

Futo;

Blista compact;

And pretty much any car that uses the Dominator interior.

 

These are the only vehicles that I have driven that accurately have their clusters, fit inside the upper gap of their steering wheels.

 

And also the Coit Voltic, the Voltic probably has the most accurate interior in the whole game.

Nor are they playable in Director Mode.... Along with a lot of NPCs like Lester, Molly, Johnny K and so on.

 

Dunno why they still haven't added them to it yet.

Michael can kill Amanda and the kids presumably. After the FIB heist Amanda and Tracey walk outside. Throw a grenade at Amanda and she is toast. I also shot Jimmy after this. LOL

you can kill them anytime you have a wanted level, get a 1 star wanted level, then you can equip weapons in michaels house, throw a smoke grenade into traceys bedroom when shes at her computer or laying in her bed and she will choke and die, or even as franklin, when you go round the back of michaels house and tracey, amanda and jimmy are sitting round the table, if you throw enough smoke grenades as close as you can to the door the smoke will reach them and they will all die. Ive spent hours killing michaels family, burnt amanda alive on the tennis court.
