Cool Things You Didn't Know About Vice City

Recommended Posts

I think the coolest thing i discovered was when you obtain the Cop Outfit, you can just waltz right into Fort Baxter and steal a Hunter without getting in trouble.

Yeah, I remember when I first found that out: "You mean you can steal the Hunter WITHOUT GETTING DESTROYED!? :D"

 

OT:

A lot of unused dialogue exists in the game in the form of both text and audio snippets. You can read about/listen to the dialogue here (text, GameFAQs) and here (audio, The Cutting Room Floor).

idk if u guys noticed but when it rains in the game and while u being in the NPM in vice point u can see the trees in the mall are also being blown to a side. which means it rains outside. i been killing those car thefs recently and noticed that when it rains the mall is so damn empty.

If you follow the target in Hit the Courier, she stops at a building in Little Haiti and runs inside while the guards are shooting at you. The building has actually an interior: a small room with a green machine. For some reason, the building's door doesn't appear in the Mapeditor.

 

Yay. I dig around in the mission code, if you want to open the interior the way Rockstar did it, you can make a cleo script with

Object.Angle($1812) = 270.0Object.Angle($1813) = 90.0

Or remove both objects. I'll add this to my mission loader.

 

Rockstar closed the interior, but peds are spawning inside. So here is Tommy, the Superman of Vice City, rescuing a chick before she dies out of food.

Here's a photo of the interior for those who are curious.

You could play the mission "Hit The Courier" or mod the game, or somehow glitch into it. It doesn't open on its own.

They're only open for a short period of time to allow the courier to enter the room during Hit the Courier, so you'd have to be quick and catch it then.

In fact you can start the mission and go direct to that place. The door will open at some point when the courier is travelling by car. Some scripted chicks will exit that place and stay around the entrance with a shotgun waiting for Tommy - but they will ignore him, if they are walking. You can use that short period of time to get into the basement. The courier will enter this place, but the mission won't be failed (because Tommy is there?). You can kill her and grab the briefcase although it is quite dificult to get out after all.

The Courier Syndicate is practically the only wholly Female Gang in the Series. That's pretty Cool/Interesting in itself.

Or, for the record, pretty much the only gang to have female members in the first place.

MrTommyV, not exactly - there is only one way to exit and it is guarded by chicks with deadly shotguns.

Certain box trucks spawn with (poorly textured) dead pigs hanging on meat hooks in the rear. They can be seen if you knock the rear door off.

 

I found these in the back of a Mule with "R.S. & L. Bows" (ha!) livery.

I always thought they were bloodstained white bodybags. I was chasing the truck during a vigilante mission and thought I was going after a mass murderer. I always thought it really chilling because I was 7 when this came out but it was only some silly pigs.

If there's female gang members, I suppose they're very rare. Don't remember seeing any myself - only hearing that one gal from inside the trailer that would later go kaboom. :D

She was a chick with a Lost MC vest, she stabbed me when i was playing as Trevor, didn't gave me time to reload and finish her, i remember all of this because it gave me a boner.

 

EDIT: Some Cholos in V might be in company of "feisty" girls also.

If you press F1 (Replay button) while in a vehicle, when you exit replay mode Tommy won't move his hands when turning the vehicle. Haven't tested it out in San Andreas or III yet.

 

Edit: Doesn't work in San Andreas, but when you do it in III, Claude glitches out when turning.

One ball is also there in a mansion pool in starfish island. My trick stand on the balls shadow and you can make 100-200 easily.

 

And that ball in the beach is a time controlled object, shows in night(forgot exact period).

More specifically, thunder and lightning only happen after the completion of "Phnom Penh '86" but before the completion of "Keep your Friends Close..." Hurricane weather doesn't generate thunder and lightning in Vice City.

Yea, that's the guy

 

Also, when Tommy jacks fat people's cars, he will make comments like 'You could do with the walk' or 'Shift your fat ass!'

There are female baller members but they are rare and only spawn on grove street. Edited by SmokesWithCigs

hmm i havent heard that from Tommy, but i'll pay attention once i steal a car from those fats..however they mostly happen to be on faggios..

 

P.S. ive also found out that the rain in the game lasts for 2hrs with ingame time and if it happens in the mornings it starts appox. at 7am and finishes exactly at 9am. as it strikes 9am the rain finishes. same if it happens at evenings or nights. count 2hrs and it'll finish at an exact hour..i found it out 2 nites ago..
