Cool Things You Didn't Know About Vice City

I didn't know that there was a poster for 70s horror movie Lady Frankenstein covered up by graffiti in one of the alleys. I don't know if this counts, but I think it's weird how in the PSN version Billie Jean still appears in the cutscene for Spilling the Beans even though it was removed.

@tubeaway army - I thought the tank went to Fort Baxter? At least that's where I assumed it to be going anyway.

 

@blazeGTAs - the blimp technically is a model, it just doesn't have collision, so anything can just go through it like nothing.

-GameSpy calls are still in the game's executable, suggesting that the (dropped) multiplayer from III was going to be in Vice City.

 

-Sprinting with two handed weapons such as rifles of the mini gun is in the game but disabled. When you press the sprint key when using a two handed weapon you'll continue to use the jogging animation due to the transition being halted. If you disable the jogging animation of sprinting you'll be able to sprint with two handed weapons. The only issue is that the animation for two handed sprinting doesn't exist so it'll resort to the default sprinting animation.

 

-Vice City on PC and Xbox have busted animations within the ped.ifp file. Tommy's idle animations are a single frame on PC/Xbox while on PS2 he sways a fair bit.

 

-Several weapon models and textures were changed on PC. The m4 has a different model, Python has a longer nose, Ruger has a better model and he wood paneling was removed, etc.

 

-The blimp has empty collision. It's not missing anything.

If you punch with a camera, Tommy will use Claude's first punching animation from GTA III.

 

-Models from the beta can still be found in the games files, this includes a wonky Cortez model, a GTA III styled Ken Risenberg, and lance with a different shirt texture.

When you are near of any business payment point, if you are at the correct distance you can see the amount of money growing. It stops when you get closer, and also numbers color changes depending of the direction you are looking at them.

ooo speaking of unused content, there's still animations in the files for the fourth part of the beginning cutscene, where tommy's talking to ken on the way to his office about their next plans

That's be interesting to see.

if you have kam's scripts or something similar you can still view it in all its glory, shame that there's no audio left over apart from the bits and pieces used in-game. the text files still show what they would've said though:

Ken: Screwed! We're screwed! This is soo typical, I poke my head out of the gutter for one freakin' second, and fate shovels sh*t in my face! Well, screw you!

Tommy: Shut your face and quit complaining! You're alive, aren't ya'? Drop me right up here. Go dump the car, then go get some sleep. I'll drop by your office tomorrow and we can start sorting this mess out.

Ken: OK, that's a good idea, I'll get some sleep. What are you gonna do?

Tommy: Make my way back to my hotel, clear my head, and figure this crap out.

Ken: OK.

it's cool because it happens just after tommy hops in the car, so you can see him look around and sit up and everything. much better than what we ending up getting, imo

So yep, I was right about Sir, Yes Sir! mission. They take that tank to the docks. What I didn't know is that you can take that Barracks OL with soldiers on the back.

 

I've played this game to death over the past 10 years and never knew this :sui: Ya learn something new every day.

wow guys this is very cool. I'll add smth too, idk if some1 knows about this trick. i play on pc and i sometimes change from standart controls to classic controls. and noticed that in classic controls tommy doesnt stand straight and also u can make him just walk with making couple steps and pressing F1 for replay and back to game and he starts to walk. if not make him walk from 1st time do the steps again and u can see him walk. but he not walks straight if u make him walk with the face to u. he then goes and to a wrong way. changes his way himself and if u shoot the camera changes. also if some1 passes next to him the camera changes too.. i been doing this for long lol, i love how he walks it just chills me lol. and if u look at him while the camera changes its angle u can see the way he walks lol, kinda weirdly but it is lol..here's a link on how to. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZvXC_8O1H8g&feature=youtu.be

If it isn't already, that should be common knowledge really with everything that's happened there.

You never know, I mean one of the direct quotes from Steve Scott is "So, the giant shark comes in there and just bites their dicks off!", god knows what else he's up to; Moon landing alien porn? Shark attack battleship porn? Who knows.

LMAO he might be the admin of efukt.

 

 

btw, anyone else saw a human corpse hanging in the fridge at the intro? But I'm sure this isn't new.

 

to be honest, when I was younger, I tought that was 8ball.

 

Edit: You can notice the shadow on the right side or inbetween of Sonny and the other blonde guy. Kinda creepy.

This is also an unknown fact.

 

Vice City is in fact, The Illuminati.

Look closely at the V of Vice. You see a triangle? If you see it you have eyes. Illuminati has eyes and is a Trangle. Illuminati Confirmed!

I was reading the gta wikia and it says that Tommy has an unused biker outfit, i'll will go apesh*t if i saw Tommy with a biker outfit.

Is this true or the wikia is bullsh*tting again?

If there's no proof, That means it's BS.

The "proof" is very thin, but on another site I've found that "additional clothing labeled as "MC Tommy" is listed in the american.gxt file at MAIN > OUTFT13. Neither models nor textures of this outfit exist."

 

the only other "unused biker clothes" I can think of is in the interior of the Howlin's Peters Bike emporium (the shop in front of Greasy Chopper), but those clothes are just some unused texture, so I don't think this is the outfit.

@TubwayArmy

That's very interesting about the receiving no wanted stars in the doughnut shop on "Sir Yes, Sir!" shop and the teddy bear on the "Gang Burrito".

 

Mine cool thing I didn't know is in "The Job" intro cutscene the music in the backround is "The Freaks Come Out At Night" by Whodini and it's not on the radio stations in the game but on Vice City Stories.

 

I think it was meant to be heard in the beta version on Wildstyle but was replaced by "Magic's Wand" also by Whodini (Which it can be heard on Wildstyle)

That explains a lot because I liked that song.

I also posted in SA topic about the music in the background sounds like "Dopeman" by N.W.A song on Radio Los Santos after a song somtimes, but I'm changing the topic.

Anyway that method next chance I get.

- The Dancers on the stage in the Malibu Club resemble the Village People. It maybe common knowledge, but I found it cool.

- GTA VC was the last GTA game to use the change into various peds cheat. From SA onwards, the various clothing options were separate meshes/skeletons.

 

:)

A new thing I forgot to mention is Diaz's Admiral is indestructible (But not completely) and has a unique paint job, and can be obtained by simply failing the mission then steal it.

"New" it's known for almost 10 years...

This thread is called "Cool Things You Didn't Know About" not "Cool Things We Didn't Know About", capiche?
