Cool Things You Didn't Know About Vice City

Recommended Posts

- 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.

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!

Even if you wear Cuban clothes, Umberto still says you're dressed like a girl.

Tallest skyscraper isn't solid on higher levels, it's texture only.

Using flying cheat in a tank you can fly higher than aircraft in the game.

 

Vice City 7CD OST boxset features 3 songs on Flash FM that haven't made into the final game:

Glenn Frey - Smuggler's Blues

Boys Don't Cry - I Wanna Be A Cowboy

Toto - Hold The Line (K-DST)

 

P.S. When people say "GTA VC is the last game to feature smth" I always wonder if GTA Stories are included in future GTAs that don't have it.

Most of you probably know this but in some swimming pools there's a bouncy ball and if you can play a bouncing ball minigame.

Furthermore, there is a stat in the statistics menu relating to that.

Tommy Vercetti's distinctive walk resembles that of Sonny Crockett in the Payback episode of Miami Vice. One of the more obscure references to the series in Vice City, it stands to reason Rockstar ate up all the Miami Vice tapes they could during production.

 

You can see it at 1:21. Color of Crockett's pants are the same color as Vercetti's Soiree Suit too.

It's replicated almost frame for frame at the end of Trailer #2 from 52 seconds in.

Its rly off when u get on the squalo after 100%. i tried to pass it on ipad but when i got on it nothing happened. means u can drive it freely w/o mission. and another cool thing i found out that on ipad when u get busted only armor they take away. the weapons stay with u. more to come and i found which car had those hanging porks in the trunk.

On the console, if you catch on fire, you can Auto-aim at anyone with the M4 and Ruger-Kruger which it can be easy to lose the cops.

That's because your car is already loaded into memory so it's the most likely car to populate the traffic. Happens on all GTAs.

On KCHAT, when Amy is talking to BJ Smith, he mentions playing a game against San Andreas. This was probably back before GTA: San Andreas was thought of and it was just a reference to San Andreas (San Francisco) from GTA 1.

If we see the sunken ships in Vice city then these ships looks exactly like the one sunk during a mission in GTA III where you have to protect the owner of 8-Ball while he plants the bomb in the ship and the whole ship sinks with a blast. The textures in both the ships are very similar and in the back of both ships in III and Vice City it is written "Liberty.....". Wasn`t that weird! because according to the R* storyline, Tommy came to Vice City with the plane from a very long distance and did they brought that sunken ship by the help of submarines... :lol: Just kidding! :lol:
