Jinx.

More working titles for the game were: GTA IV & GTA: Miami.

No sh*t Sherlock (no rude btw).

 

GTA IV's developement started after San Andreas' release (until 2008, where LCS/VCS got released between these years, to keep the fans alive). After VC, San Andreas was in progress, not GTA IV.

GTA Miami? Really? Vice City's map is based on Miami, and some things from VC were based on Miami Vice, so 100% sure that this didn't happen.

 

Again, no rude, but now post some proof about what you said earlier If not, I will report that post for being false info. Thanks.

You can understand the difference between working titles and final titles, right? Since they dropped the idea of VC being add-on to III, I can understand the usage of IV title. Even Miami makes sense for a working title.

Yeah, but it was aleardy confirmed that it was GTA 3: Vice City, not GTA: Miami. Everyone would know that it was named GTA: Miami if there was a well-known proof (here, waiting for Mr Love to enlighten us with more infos, instead a plain short post). You may be right about GTA IV though.

USA (short title) Vice City

 

When I said GTA IV. I don't mean the 2008 game, I mean Vice City's original working title during development.

I had noticed the Fiat wheels too, but I always thought they were hubcaps.

I mean, they're so ugly and cheap-looking!

They're such a bad choice of rims, really.

 

MarkyEvansy - Google Chrome - and Google in general- love nobody, mate :catspider:

 

I quite like them. They're used on the Virgo, Greenwood, Stretch & Police/Taxi in VC.

At least these wheels match those cars, unlike the Honda ones.

Now that I come to think of it, the wheels of this game have little to no appeal, most look like hubcaps, which doesn't impress me.

Also, I've never seen that chopper before.

Is that a beta Maverick?

It's at one of the houses on Starfish Island. Kalvin posted a picture of it on the first page.

And the helicopter looks like the helicopter from GTA III, only red and white. It could have been the removed Coastguard Maverick.

That photograph was probably taken around January 2002, when VC was set to be an expansion pack for III.

 

Starfish Island was originally called Star Island in the beta, (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Star_Island_(Miami_Beach))

Any other proof than the real life name? Rockstar is well known for improvising real life brands and places.

They wouldn't use real names for their zones, really.

 

Hell, III's Diablos could've been Latin Kings if we're going by that logic. R* only uses real brands for small things (like the Chinatown Ice Cream Factory/actually from NY).

Tommy does call it "Star Island" in the mission where he rescues Lance and drops him off at the hospital. It could have easily been a mistake in the script though.

London's another story. It was made when GTA was nothing but a small time game. They wouldn't use real places anymore.

They won't do a GTA out of the States anymore, as said in September 2013.

This map can still be found in one of the garages at the car dealership. Notice how Fort Baxter Air Base was actually an air base with a runway? In the final version, the runway curves in a weird direction to avoid the military base, which also became a lot smaller.

 

Also, it looks like they planned to have a Kenny Loggins song on the radio. From the unused text files, dialogue between Tommy and Lance for a Diaz mission:

 "You cool with Kenny Loggins?"  "Hell, I love this record"

12 years later, they got him to be a DJ plus have two of his songs in the same game. I can't help but wonder now what other songs they wanted to include in VC that ended up being cut.
