I'm kinda sad that you didn't like the Package deals mission

Mainly because I'm pretty much a noob because guards kept spotting me all the time, I even tried to stealth but they seem to have X-Ray vision and killed me instantly so I skipped it.

 

Yes I understand about the survival instinct too but on my thought I think they would go back and check on Conrad after the explosion ended but it was better off Conrad surviving for the ending, the ending battle was neat!

 

Not sure if I was the only one who thought about this too but I thought about Dwayne still being alive and working with Garry and would make an appearance fighting against the team in Garry's mansion as some sort of mini-boss.

The issue with the mission ''Package deals'' is not you being the noob really, it's just it's one of the missions which are exceptionally hard (probably too hard) since there's pretty much only one possible route for you to take without getting spotted and it must be executed at a specific time too, so it's hard by any standards. :colgate:

 

It's cool that you mentioned the thing with Dwayne because, believe it or not, one of my initial ideas was to leave Dwayne alive off screen and make it so as it seems like he's dead. However, that idea didn't involve him working for Garry or anything like that. It was gonna be along the lines of the team finding out he was alive and kept prisoner by Garry and then rescuing him somewhere near the end of the mission pack, but then I ditched the idea because I felt it was unnecessary.

It's funny because I faced the same issue. But there is a different route.

Spoiler

I went around the place to where scott is parking his car and from there it was an easy cake. Dunno if it's considered cheating, but it worked.

Oh, right! That's true. I think AznKei did the same thing in his walkthrough. I forgot about that :colgate: Yeah, I guess it is considered ''cheating'', but that's okay. I always appreciate when players play my missions the way I intended them to be played, but if you tried many times and it's just not working since it's very hard to do it in a way I intended it, then I'm okay with cheating. Nobody has to know :colgate:

I thought you intended to put this like a sort of secret shortcut. Stealth missions are pretty tough in DYOM. The radar is useless and the camera angle isn't suitable for this kind of mechanic. But it is realistic, I guess. I once participated in MOTW with a stealth mission that was extremely hard. It didn't go well.

Got me thinking if we tried a stealth mission with THBP's fixed camera bug, would it work better?

You're absolutely right. I said it myself too, doing stealth sequences in GTA San Andreas is very messy to say the least. You can work hard on polishing it as much as you want, but in the end, GTA San Andreas mechanics are still gonna be the same and it's not gonna feel 100% stealth like. I don't think DYOM is the problem at all. I'm happy with the way it is though. :colgate:
