Grand Theft Auto III Pre-Release Discussion

There's nothing too similar to a Ferry Port in the Portland area. I was thinking more about the ferry stopping at that cement part at the island's edge or the docks.

Still, there's a clear Ferry Port looking place in Staunton.

If I learnt anything is that a magazine can be from any time span and still have some beta shots used as filler.

If it's worthy or not (the magazine from Ma-mothers-Ma-Sister) will be decided when we'll see the shots ourselves. :)

Yep ima dig it out today. The magazine did come out in 2002 but it shows beta pics of gang models that aren't present in the final game. I remember searching everywhere trying to find them when I was a kid lol.

If ferries were indeed put in place of the Callahan Bridge, they would have severely hindered the pace of traveling between Portland and Staunton, so I'm happy they didn't make the cut.

 

Imagine zipping through Portland in a Banshee, then coming to a screeching halt as you wait for the next ferry to arrive. When it inevitably arrives at the Portland ferry dock, you board it and then must wait for it to slowly tug through the water to bring you to your next destination, from where you can then finally continue. All this as opposed to driving across a bridge? No thanks. The Shoreside Vale lift bridge is already enough of a nuisance already.

The Porter Tunnel would've been another solution if you see the ferries that way, though I agree that the Callahan bridge was definitely the best solution. Still, it would've been cool to see how the game would have changed if Staunton and Portland were the same as originally planned.

Personally, I'd say that the ferry itself acted more like a checkpoint instead of a cutscene or moving vehicle.
It was, most likely, part of the map seeing as how it is included in the overall map render.

 

My theory is that this was a static model, the likes of a building, which had a checkpoint within the area that would teleport you straight back into Portland when accessed.

Just wondering how I attach pictures to the post. I took 2 pictures of a somewhat late beta Claude. And a beta triad, seems they cut the beta triad attire pretty late because Claude looks almost identical to his final model in the picture.

The beta Triad attire was still in the game during E3.
Yep, cut pretty late.

 

Use Imgur for your photos.

Imgur is trash. It used to be a good image host, but now it's just another dorky community with upboats.

 

I much prefer PostImage.

Fun fact, the earliest version of the iOS version of III still featured a few beta peds (including the beta Triad) and that's besides the blue radar. :santa:

 

The first shot is a few weeks before E3 and the latter is, most likely, a few weeks before the actual release.

I think they photoshopped the car black in that photo, screenshot was taken with blue car and then released after the change, you can still see some blue on the side with the white stripe.

The police car mostly looks like it was from LCS.

What ever happened to that book that was going to be about the making of every Grand Theft Auto. It was supposed to have rare pictures and information in it.

I always thought the big patch of green in Staunton was where the off-road missions was in the beta. As I can't see them just randomly sticking a huge patch of pointless grass on the map for no reason

So do we have every render photo besides red sportcar and truck? 2nd photo shows more cars, you can compare.

The car above the Panto in the left corner. The red sports car is speculated to be an earlier Rocket render. The car above the Panto looks to be an older car so it "might" be an earlier Stallion or Esperanto.
