It was first shown in GTASV's design video almost a month ago IIRC. The guy on deviantart remade it to be in the same style as the other artworks.

They don't even explain where it came from other than its "never before seen artwork". Not to play the sceptic but Its kind of weird. The art style does look spot on but where did it come from? The GDD is printed in black and white

I have no clue, but it's legit, according to quote below:

Stephen Bliss confirmed that the Major character was one of the first few characters he drew in GTA3's "final" art style, it'll be interesting to see if he does an anniversary upload too.

I know I'm beating a dead horse here, but, again; I feel the need to point out the fact that the design document will never shared in its entirely is a still a slap in the face to the community who have been sifting through old web-pages, magazines and press material for well-over a decade now to try and paint a more cohesive picture of what one of our favourite game's development was like. However, what I think is more important is the preservation of video game history aspect.

 

We waited years after that auction ended, only to have it be condensed into a two-hour video exclusively for one YouTube channel. While yes, the video was well-produced, crammed in heaps of information and no doubt took a long time to produce, the issue still stands that this is the only source. 

 

From a preservation standpoint, let's put things into perspective. The document is merely paper. Paper degrades, paper can easily be destroyed (water, fire, literally just exposure to oxygen). With the knowledge that particular pages have been scanned (as per the GTASeries video), we know that a partial, or a full-copy does exist. The problem is, hard-drives fail. CDs fail, tapes fail, passwords get forgotten, and sometimes things just get lost. Any media is prone to failure and there is a genuine risk that this document could be lost to time, and I don't think anyone in this thread would want that to happen.

 

Simply put, we cannot rely on a single video, hosted on a single media-sharing platform, by a single content-creator to be a secure method of preserving video game history. (Not to mention, you cannot cover a massive document like that in just a two hour video. Things would have been missed, that cannot be denied, and as someone who's just as obsessive about understanding and discovering information regarding beta / alpha builds of GTA titles as anyone else here, it kinda stings.)

 

Of course, I do understand that a private transaction is a private transaction. There's no obligation on the buyer's end to share the document whatsoever, but to those in posession of the scanned document, or even the physical document, please consider the points I raised.

 

That's all, I guess. I don't mean to offend anyone, I just feel disappointed by how the situation was handled.

Maybe somebody once told them not to share it?

Yeah, Rockstar. Imo 90% of the doc was shown in their video, while 10% still remains a mystery..

I really wanna see that 10 percent but then again, with the rest of the doc, the chase is much better than the catch

- According to the early revisions of the subtitles for the opening cutscene of "Marked Man", Ray was supposed to use the "f*ck" word three times in the cutscene, meaning III once included SA's level of strong language. Well, Ray is voiced by Robert Loggia, after all...

For anyone wondering what the subs are...(thanks archive.org for the .ipa of 3)

I surely hope that one day someone will share the scanned documents.

Would love to see some HQ scans of that article.

 

Advance must have started conceptualisation at around this point in III's development, the HUD font and colours are a dead giveaway.

I think you're right. This thread also says that it was reported as far back as May 2001, which fits since those pics are definitely after E3.

Even these early screenshots had the same hud colors.
