You can wheelie at any speed going south but after a certain speed going north you can't lift the bike up anymore.

So i just played through GTA:VC on the phone recently. I learned that the apartment that you can buy that comes with a large garage and helipad aldo comes with two smaller garages on the right of the roof access door, and B.J. Smith's Sunshine Auto's also has three medium garages across from the Pay 'n Spray. I never knew about this until a few days ago, mainly because i haven't played through the game since i was a kid, i always preferred GTA:SA instead.

Interesting bug: a cop was spawned as suspect in 'Vigilante' mission
 

Spoiler

I was shooting suspects using laser sniper, then just a random ped in Bobcat was stopped in front of me and start attack me O.o

Interesting fact: in mission 'The Chase' the BF Injection (car thath Sharks band member use to escape from player) is spawned on the roof of pink building at the beginning of the mission. The game just teleport it in cutscene where Sharks band member is jumping on trash container.

Spoiler

I never knew you could use an Ambulance to glitch through the fence where Cortez gives you missions. It's a bitch to do, but it let's you get to the second island early. I always just progressed through the story as normal. There's no real point in doing it, but it's cool if you're on a new save file and you just want to drive around. You don't get any wanted stars.

Apologies if its been posted before. But if you let Cam die during the bank job then you get a significantly higher pay out once you complete the mission owing to the fact you are only splitting the money two ways with Phil. Theres also some dialouge at the end of the mission where Tommy and Phil will talk about this. My advice? Run Cam Over with an escape car and protect Phil as best you can. Phil is an angel. A beautiful one armed angel 

 

also Phil is to date the only NPC to survive having a limb blown off in Vice City

You could also just push it into the water at the dock entrance further down and use it as a stepping stone to get onto the marina boat docks 😛 Plenty of strategies to get to the second island early.

In the Bedford Point representation in InterGlobal Studios there's a missing texture. That's because the original building in GTA 3 has the same texture missing. I can't show you pictures right now, but you can confirm it easily. It's close to a pink window that says "Novelties: Leather, Lingerie, Club Ware".

If you hop on a freeway motorbike you can shoot yourself until you die.

 

to do this you have to have the Mac 10 sub machine gun, look to your left pressing L2 (on PS2), reverse so you walk the bike backwards and press shoot.

 

its as if because Tommy is leaning backwards and walking plus you are shooting for some reason the bullets aim upto you and kill you.

 

Ive only ever tested on PS2 uncut PAL version of the game.

If I'm not wrong, that's a missing face on the building in GTA3. I remember see it a while ago. Anyway, I'd like to check it again, later to confirm if is a missing face or texture. Nice find though.

The red tracksuit is available at the beginning of the game... Or at least after you complete “An old friend”. I found this out by being at the second island early collecting hidden packages.

If you will use weapon cheat which give you chainsaw (NUTTERTOOLS) and will try to pick any melee weapon pickup, the chainsaw will be replaced by new weapon without asking you to press TAB

I've already talked about this in the topic "Cool Things You Didn't Know About GTA III", but it's in Vice City too, so I'll talk about it again: There's a sign of a company called "Fudge Packing Corp". The curious thing it's not the name (which references homosexuality), but the logo. The logo is really similar to Facebook's logo, which is strange, considering that this game came out before Facebook. Here's the image:

EDIT: I forgot to tell you where it's the sign. It's in Little Havana, on a pink building.

In the spanish version of the game, if Phil Cassidy dies during the mission Boomshine Saigon, the text will say "¿Ahora quién va a suministrar armas en Liberty?" (Now who's gonna supply arms in Liberty?) when it should say Vice City. That was corrected in the 10th anniversary edition, as far as I know.

Behind the Pay 'n' Spray in Viceport are two signs that says "Open: Hand car wash".

I actually think that is kind of a cool reference to GTA III for players who played III before VC. Too bad it was just a mistake.

Never knew that pressing the S key while on the stats screen will save all your stats in a classic looking pink html file in the GTA Vice City User Files folder.

There's a modified picture of Eddie (the mascot of Iron Maiden) in the place where the psycho wants to kill Love Fist members during mission Psycho Killer.

Contrary to popular belief, the Sentinel actually has a higher top speed than the Sabre Turbo, which means that in The Driver, you are driving the faster car. The Sabre Turbo, however, has a higher acceleration and overall better handling, which is what makes the mission hard.

'Vic Vance' in the intro to Vice City seems to be a slightly reskinned Ricardo Diaz, complete with hispanic accent; which I'm sure is an oversight of 'adding' to the story for VCS.

- This pedestrian only appears at night and during dark hours (and yes, I know that is broad daylight in this picture, but that is because the user extracted the skin), and only in Washington Beach and close to the hotel Maison Wenifall. I know it because of a thread in Steam.

- Pedestrians in swimsuit, rollerskating and jogging can only be seen during the daytime and the sunrise. They can't be seen during the night. I discovered this while investigating the pedestrian from above.

Hello. I hope I've found some new info about the origins of the mugshot seen in "An Old Friend" cutscene.

In many places, I've seen theories that it was some mafia guy, but according to this site  LINK he was an escapee from Menard Prison in the 40s.

The North Point Mall is empty not only when it's raining but also during the night and until 5AM approximately. That's because is technically closed (although you still can go inside and there are street criminals there).

Eddies Boilers from III/VC share the same phone number as Jerry Seinfeld in the show Seinfeld.

Police officers can place spike strips anywhere (as long as they can stand on it) For proof, get a 3+ wanted level, get a heli and hover over the Vercetti's estate roof, Cops will come and place down spikestrips even if youre in a helicopter
