WTF? Disappearing peds...and other disappearing things...


Recommended Posts

Ok so I started the game up.....it started as Michael sitting on a bench at the beach, apparently being bitched out by a lifeguard for him smoking a cigar.....he yells at him "SO YOU THINK I AM GOING TO BURN THIS UP????? THIS BEACH IS JUST ONE BIG ASHTRAY!!!" and he throws the cigar at him. Rightly so.....lifeguard is lecturing Michael for smoking a cigar, and there are two different groups of people burning a fire on the beach?? Idiot.

Lifeguard dude turns and walks across the beach to his little lifeguard hut.
I followed him. Once lifeguard idiot gets to the hut he turns and stands there. I walked past him about 5 feet and turn around.

And he is gone.

My, people come and go so quickly here!


I have encountered far too many instances like this. Most often it seems to be cops who disappear for some reason.

It ruins the continuity and immersion-quality of the game.

The whole point of immersion is to make the player feel like he is dealing with the real world, and sh*t like this f*cks that experience up.

I can see it if it is a dead body. Sure...let it lay there for awhile, then let it disappear. Or if you go more than about 500 or 1,000 feet from a ped, or around the block or something.

But when you are right there within 5 feet of it?

And it is not just peds. I have gone out to the airport to steal a jumbo jet. I will be 100 feet from the jumbo jet, and will look away for just a second, and when I look back, it is gone.

Just one thing (out of almost none) about this game that bothers me.

Lethal Vaccine

Guy walks away from Car and turns his back. Vehicle vanishes. This happens since September 2013...


Unlike the 3D Era, where you would be able to literally leave a Vehicle in memory in lets say Portland, while you are driving around or walking around in Shoreside Vale.


They don't make 'em like they used to, that's for sure...

For some reason, things disappear easily now, where the games back then, they were still there.
