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

The yellow Oceanic infront of the Ocean View Hotel isnt actually owned by Tommy, If you get in the car while a cop is near you'll get a wanted level, i always thought the Oceanic was tommy's car but eh, It is what it is

- The health and adrenaline pills found in pharmacies and hospitals cost money, while the ones we find scattered around the map are free. That's a nice detail I never paid attention to before.

- During stormy weather, the traffic lights will be yellow. I'm sure that you knew that. What you may not know is that, when lights are blinking in yellow, pedestrians will drive more recklessly than normal. AFAIK, than won't happen if you activate the stormy weather cheat. It only will happen when it naturally starts raining. I didn't discover that. The one who discovered it is a latin american youtuber named New Games Inspector.

- There's a secret empty room in the Hyman Condo behind the save icon. I know that thanks to a Vadim M video.

The license plates on the cars in the 10th Anniversary Edition have the Florida Gators logo on the left side.

Necroquote but this screenshot of yours is the one widely used for XXXTentacion's "Vice City".

Tommy owns a nice scooter.

This phone is located high in the sky and you can't get to it in the game. In the files, it is located in "downtows.ipl", although in the game it is located in the northeastern part of the city,Name "miamphon"
Coordinates: 947.868, 1497.2, 174.132

I have the original PS2 version, so if these aren't relevant anymore....shame.

  • The map at Sunshine Autos to start street races, is the original beta map for Vice City.
  • You can see a second control tower at Escobar Intnl Airport when viewed from the first...island? (The Hospital in Ocean Beach) but when you cross the bridge, the second control tower disappears.
  • If you can somehow get a helicopter into Pay n Spray, it will come out with wheels attached.
  • A PCJ-600 (sometimes) spawns behind the glass at 'Howlin' Pete's Biker Emporium'.
  • There's a submarine in the water, north of North Point Mall.
  • In the stats menu, there's an entry which reads 'Fishes fed' and then a tally - this is actually a tally to show how many times you've drowned in water. (People in 1986 can't swim)

That's actually the control tower for what was initially the runway for the Fort Baxter Airbase which was much larger than it is in the beta version. You can see it in the beta map.

Aha yes, thats what I meant, I like seeing old remnants like that. Obviously in these times something like that would be patched. Great thing about these old games is once they're on the disk and shipped, any bugs or anything not patched is on there.

I didn't know that until today, but the Malibu Club has exterior music. Three different exterior sounds: one for the morning, one for the evening and one for the night. They are hard to hear because they sound very low and there are cars all the time, but they exist. I know that because of this video and its description:

Despite what handling.cfg says, the fastest vehicle in the game is infact the PCJ600 which can get up to around 275 kmh in game with an open enough area.

I'm happy to see my channel in this topic!
Anyway, I discovered this thing just some months ago too!

Oh, so this is your channel? Cool. Thanks to you for uploading these sound effects. Is good to know there are so many of them. They give more life to the games.

By the way, when are you going to upload the other two sounds of the Malibu Club? I can't wait to hear them.

Yes, the channel is mine!
I want to upload also the other too sounds, but I'm often busy with the University. I'll for sure load them, they're pretty similar to this one.

Mitch Baker's missions are some of the most passive in the game.

 

In "Messing With The Man", you can pass the mission by blowing up cars in a parking lot with no civilian casualties. 

 

In the mission where you have to get his bike back, you can enter the compound quickly without firing a bullet. The game never instructs you to kill any gang members, and the Sharks are positioned in a way where they can't really overwhelm you with bullets.
