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.

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.

Sorry for coming back to life this kind of topics, but I'm finding interesting details never covered in GTA games. On the chest that's in the aquarium in Hotel Ocean View there are weapons. I tried to check this in game, but is not possible to see it there. According to what they told me, you need a map editor to see this secret. I don't have it installed, so if anyone here wants to check it by him/herself, that would be great. Here is the image:

I've just been told that, when it rains, not only some peds will run for cover, but also convertible cars will have the roof (is that the correct word?) on. Is amazing how detailed this game is. It really feels alive in some aspects.
