Or, for the record, pretty much the only gang to have female members in the first place.

LMAO, The Golfer gang has female members and known it within my first few days playing the game (when I got to Four Iron mission) back in 2004, the courier's gang however is the only all female gang in the game (unless you count the chicks with guns cheat that turns the Vercittee gang female, but I rarely ever use cheat and completed the game 100 % without any).... The golfer gang is a legitimate gang, any gang that fights other gangs (I often lured cubans/haitians/others there and they brawled, and the golfer gang is tough with the golf sticks) and and can be added to the least favorite gang stat is. One male and one female model for the golfer gang.

There's a secret office in the Cherry Popper factory, behind the save icon. It can only be seen with trainers or through the "rocket launcher cheat". It's really dark so it's hard to notice. I know it because of GTA Wiki (Yes, I know you don't always believe in what it says, but this is true). Sorry, I don't know how to post pictures, but you can confirm it easily. And sorry for my english, too.

I actually added that to the wiki😊 I knew it from WikiGTA, a lesser known old GTA guide (mostly meant for Dutch audiences, as the English verison of the site is much less enhanced) they have an image with adjusted lighting that shows the furniture a bit better:

I just learned that you can auto-center the camera behind you by holding L1 on PS2, or Black on Xbox. It also works on GTA III too. I do not know about the PC. 

 

I've been playing this game since it was released and i never knew this. It's much easier to turn the player around using this instead of using the right stick.

The ghost driver in the mission "Psycho Killer". I know the vehicle (trashmaster) initially drives by itself aimlessly into the wall, but much later found out this cool AI glitch but counts as a ghost in terms of gaming world perspectives. The trashmaster drives by itself and tries to smash either Tommy or The Psycho. It misses and gets stuck on the wall. After passing or failing the mission (either ways after the mission is over, but be sure to be near the trashmaster or it will disappear), if you hit it with a car, its free from the wall, and drives visibly by itself. Its slow, you can easily follow, it stops at red lights and moves at green light, no driver XD, neatest "ghost driver" in the game on the trashmaster trash truck . If you get in and get out of the vehicle the phase ends, you have freed the ghost driver's soul, may he rest in peace. If you chose to follow , as long as you don't lose sight you can follow its progress for hours, actually until you decide to close the game....

Ramming/destroying parking meters make them drop money. Just found that out after over a decade.

Not sure if anyone knew or if anyone has mentioned, but back in the beta there was a music pickup. The pickup use was unknown, but it can be activated in game via mods. Obviously it was most likely to listen to music outside of a car, but is there more too it? Anyways not on my computer at the moment to show, but there are videos u can watch about it.

 

Edit: My apologises if this is in the wrong section, just thought it was cool and it can be moved if needed.

A bit too late?

- There's a picture of Frank Sinatra in Marco's Bistro, possibly reference to his Mafia connection. Also Ray Liotta played him once in The Rat Pack movie.

 

- Once Tommy failed Bloodring mission, and after he wasted or busted, he will respawn at the stadium without losing any weapons.

Maybe it was for buying songs like in the first Saints Row?

The "See You In Miami" sign in GTA III is not the only reference to this city. In Little Haiti, near the bridge, you can see a sign that says "Move Over Miami". It's on the roof from where you have to shoot cubans in "Dirty Lickin's".

AFAIK you can spawn the music pickup in game, but it is behaving like a regular pickup (unlike the video camera pickup which can only be collected by a car). In the North Point Mall, there is at least one music shop with open interior. Maybe the headphones pickup could have been placed inside.

Have you ever noticed that there are cars 'painted' on this building?

Ultra low poly parking lot. Like in PSX games.

BTW I think it is a saab

Some time ago I told that one song from Radio Espantoso was similar to one of the ambient musics from GTA III. Well, I have videos for you to make the comparison.

This is the ambient music from Hepburn Heights:

 

And this is the song Super Strut, by Deodato: 

 

 

I insist that maybe Rockstar used this song in Vice City as a reference to GTA III, even though the Hepburn Heights music is cut from Floating Waves by DJ Roadrunner.

I’m pretty sure Rafael’s clothing shop is based on the name of Ricardo Tubbs’ brother from Miami Vice.

I only now realized there is a PC exclusive cheat called 'hopingirl' that makes nearby pedestrians enter your vehicle.

That it has such a stupid trophy list on PS4. Shame, because it's one of my favourite games and I would have liked to Platinum it. Whoever thought the Take the Cannoli  Trophy over at Rockstar was a good idea is a moron. It's simply impossible through normal play unless you play for months and months, maybe even years.

In Phnom Penh '86 Tommy can still crouch in FPS mode on the heli and it brings the reticle down to the skids.

That you could rob stores up until recently.

 

I swear to god. I never did this when I played on PS2 back in the day. I just did the Missions back then, there's a lot of little things I just never did.

Today I just found that if you took Mercedes from the party on your bike she would say "Will you be working for my father?" then "It's so difficult having a rich and powerful father. Vamos.", and as we know Tommy replies "Maybe" on both of them then if you took her by a car she will say "Do you mind me resting my hand in your lap?" , "Maybe..".

I just figured out that the Escobar airport is named in reference to '80s drug lord Pablo Escobar.

When you pickup Rampage mission that need you to kill gang members, the game will show you message 'Kill N Gang Members in 2 Minutes!', but if you will pickup Rampage on the roof near Cherry Popper (sniper rifle), the game will show little bit different message: 'Gun Down N Gang Members in 2 Minutes!' This is the only rampage that shows you this message

I'm sure there's a lot of people who don't know about Apartment 3C.
It's an enterable room, south of the Pay 'n' Spray in Ocean Beach.
Inside is a reference to a scene from Scarface, you can also find a chainsaw inside.

In Little Haiti, near the graves with the skeleton that lost one arm, there's a graffiti that says "Big Pete". Maybe R* took the idea from there to name Pete Vance? Maybe not, but I like to speculate.

When Rockstar created that textures, Vice City Stories wasn't in their mind

That's why I said they probably named it after that. But I recognize that it's just speculation.
