Beta prostitute. Notice the "Cougar" driven by a taxi driver in the background, if you look close.

He's a passenger. That Alpha VC pic, it looks so damn III-ish...

The shape of the original lights were left in the Deluxo DFF so they just restored them iirc.

I guess that VCN broadcasted after each mission to talk about it. After finishing the game it would just be there, possibly repeating the audio file of some random bits of News. It would just have taken space, I guess.

I believe they added news reports in SA, though? As I think the radio files wasn't just an infinte loop in that game?

 

As for the Icons, No idea. Maybe in the beta the Players could temporarily silence the Radio stations by going to the building shown with a icon and blowing up the antenna? There's no point that, though.

That's my guess, too. They probably planned to allow you to buy the radio stations and keep them as properties.

Interesting to see the same house icon here that was used in SA.

Nevermind his height, looks like a beta Ammunation too!

 

None the less I just opened VC and compared his height to the gun rack in the window and it's roughly the same, probably just the angle of that photo :p

Surely someone running the VC beta mod could script that in? Doing missions would be a little far but just buying them as properties would be cool.

I'm not that familiar with modding, but it doesn't seem like it'd be too hard. V-Rock and VCN already have buildings, you'd just have to guess where the other stations are located to add their location on the map and then make them generate money after buying them.

Apartment 3c was originally intended to be a safehouse IIRC.

Damn. That'd be awesome. Buying a horror scene. Would be awesome if a mission involved Steve Scott making a Movie there and after the mission it would be unlocked as a safe house.

Just out of curiosity, whats the source for that? It seems a little strange it'd be a safehouse considering the Ocean Height's apartment is pretty much down the road from it. I'd always assumed 3C was put in as a homage to Scarface, along with the various other references.

Sonny Forelli was meant to give Tommy a mission which involved buying Apartment 3c:

"An additional mission for the film studio asset, given by Steve Scott over the phone, was cut."

Where's the actual proof of it? I checked the citations and there's nothing there (or maybe I missed it) :p

 

Good job bringing up all of this newish beta stuff though!

Also, the marker you step in to buy the guns is blue, like III's mission markers, whereas VC's final marker are pink IIRC.

Looks like Donald Love to me. Can't really see well without my glasses. Plus he's too far away and looks like he has no neck.

It looks like Tommy's CS model, but with a weird rendering shader.

I'm wondering how the VCPD or whoever got that picture of him :ph34r::ph34r::ph34r:

Probably from the LCPD. However, nobody besides the Forellis knew that he was going down to Vice. The LCPD wouldn't have known that. Do the Forellis have a snitch that informs the police? We'll never know.

"There was going to be a mission given by Sonny Forelli. It had something to do with Apartment 3c. It was to be the only mission given to the protagonist Tommy by Sonny. It is possible that the mission involved buying Apartment 3C, since it was going to be a Safe House."

Is there any proof of that, other than just a mention on the GTAwiki, which ANYBODY can edit and it remains unchecked?

Here's some sh*t I threw in a few days ago that's still up to prove that point. I haven't seen mention of it elsewhere.

And the worst part of those wikis. If you try to correct them or delete false information, they'll revert your edits and claim to be right about everything.

 

The best way to know about the games is playing them, not reading some site full of fics. And this comes from someone who worked on a GTA wiki for many years.

True on that. No better way to get information than your own eyes.
