If you store it, will it remain not EP? If so, i will get it on my next save

It probably will just be a BP Rhino Tank. It's pretty cool, but totally useless and inferior to normal ones being BP/EP. Since it's not EP, it's quite unique I guess...

Are you gonna obtain the EP/EC Securicar for the Youtube Guide and have 2 Saves like how I explained above? In all reality, there is only 14 Special Vehicles in III, not counting Inferior and Useless Vehicles. So if you exclude the AP Cheetah, since it can be obtained anytime, you can have the EP/EC Securicar which CAN'T be obtained anytime, obviously. So it's a cool alternative to get that. Plus, you're already saving the AP Cheetah for the end, after 100%, anyways...So you might as well get the EP/EC Securicar and then when you get the AP Cheetah, just remove one of the other Vehicles...

I will record EVERYTHING, unlike SA and keep the best stuff here. The other save will have stuff like the UC GTA vehicles and the BP Rhino.

 

I will also record pushing the BP/FP/Bomb Trashmaster to SI tomorrow or so.

Those are essential to the FIRST Save. Like I said, there is only 14 in III. 13 for one Save, 13 for another Save. Except you get the AP Cheetah in one and in the other, don't have it...

Finally, you got it! :D:p

 

All you got left is the 3 DP/EC Sports Cars, BP/DP Patriot, and AP Cheetah. You should have 5 Vehicles in SSV right now, 3 in SI, and 0 in Portland. You have the Trashmaster parked wrong, where it's taking up basically the entire Garage. Having it like you parked it won't allow you to store 6 in SI...

I typed what I said before watching the Video, but the Trashmaster can easily be parked nicer and MORE in the back. That's why during the Video, you were ramming it and pushing it in farther, since it could of been in farther all along. When you obtained the Trashmaster, you just backed it up into the SI Garage without turning it sideways and jamming it in the back. It's the only way to have 6 inside SI...

 

Also the Garage not closing, you just run away from it with the camera on it OR have a Vehicle down there to force close the Garage. Every time I open the SI Garage, it never closes cuz the nose of the BP/DP Barracks OL is always sticking out...But it always saves in there. It's not like it disappears...

 

If you're keeping the useless EC Securicar, which VITAL Vehicle are you gonna skip? One of the EC Sports Cars from Grand Theft Auto? AP Cheetah? BP/DP Patriot? The EC Securicar literally is the LAST Vehicle I'd want to obtain in III for being completely inferior to two other Securicars and it also is quite large so fitting it in the Garage is quite a nuisance. It can't be made into DP, either, like the other Special Vehicles remaining. DP Vehicle > EC Vehicle without DP. I had the EC Securicar in an old Save, but that's cuz I skipped the EC Cheetah which was stupid. DP/EC Cheetah > EC Securicar, any day, any time...

Yup, gonna play GTA 3 again. My Special Vehicle collection and that game was pitiful. I need more. Gonna make a starter save too (not sure why I didn't do this in the first place). Gonna do the same on Vice City since you can get all Special Vehicles with garage space to spare. But it's gonna be some side sh*t I do when I'm bored. Mostly gonna focus on getting LCS to 100% with good special vehicles. God, I f*cking hate taxi missions and paramedic missions. Think god they didn't put paramedic back in IV or V. Some tedious sh*t.

The Starter Save is really fun to make, imo. I like doing those and now have the FULL 53% Starter Save for III on both PS2 and iOS, as well as FULL 44% Starter Save for VC on both PS2 and iOS, FULL 13.90% Starter Save for SA but only PS2 and not iOS, FULL 48% Starter Save for LCS on both PS2 and iOS, and FULL 49.20% Starter Save for VCS on PS2. Next, I will do the CW 31.86% Starter Save on iOS and back it up so I always have it, unlike last April 2015 when I did CW. I finished it, but saved over it and never backed it up...I may even do Starter Saves for IV, TLaD, TBoGT, and V in the future just because. I would have done and have a Starter Save for all 10 GTA's I own, then :D:p

 

Also having a Starter Save, it makes the game go by so much quicker and smoother. All the mundane, boring, repeat do this 100 times or do this to Level 12 nonsense is done with already. You can spend much more time focusing on the Story and Special Vehicles that way and make the Stats perfect. Don't rush the Starter Save, though, as that is key to having clean Stats. If you do all that and not have any Failures, you can make the rest of the game a lot easier to keep at 0 for some of the Stats, etc...

 

Yeah, the HD Era is slightly a breath of fresh air, but at the same time, not. At least Paramedics rewards you good stuff in the 3D Era, whereas what does 200 Pigeons do for me in IV, or hell, even reaching 100%? TLaD, TBoGT, CW, and V included are horrible for rewards and have some extremely horrid tasks in them just like the 3D Era with the boring as f*ck R3 Missions. That's why with having ALL R3 Missions, Side Missions, Collectibles, Rampages, Stunt Jumps, etc, etc, done after the first Story Mission in the game, you enjoy re-doing the playthroughs more since all the "WORST OF" stuff is taken care of already for 100% Requirements/Tasks...

Do any of the side sh*t count for mission attempts in III? Like, I know sh*t in SA and LCS count towards attempts but not sure if it's the same in III. Like the RC sh*t or rampages or something, I don't know. Gonna make sure my starter saves stats are perfection and gonna save as little as possible.

Rampages aren't Missions, or even Side Missions. These have nothing to do with the Missions Passed / Failed / Attempted Stats. But things like Patriot Playground, A Ride in the Park, Multistorey Mayhem, Gripped!, Toyz Van Missions, Give Me Liberty, Luigi's Girls, etc, etc, do.

Do any of the side sh*t count for mission attempts in III?

 

9 Mission Attempts

9/73 Missions Passed

 

That's what the Stats should say in III for the Missions when doing the Starter Save. Since I am doing III over on PS2 just so my Starter Save AND 100% Save can be TOGETHER all on the SAME File, I have the Starter Save on the Console and before starting yesterday, I checked that as I forgot. Basically R3 Missions, like Taxi, Paramedics count as those 9 Mission Attempts/Passed as well as Patriot Playground, A Ride in the Park, Multistorey Mayhem, Gripped, Mafia Massacre, Casino Calamity, etc, etc, etc, the Toyz Vans are those Mafia Massacre and Casino Calamity and sh*t...

 

But yeah, Slot 1 is my 53% Starter Save and Slot 2 will be the 100% Save with 78 Mission Attempts, 0 Deaths/Busted/Cheats, and all 13 Special Vehicles fully converted except the BP/FP Securicar/BP/FP Trashmaster since those can't be converted and the Unique Corpse Manana since I DON'T WANT it to be DP.

 

Once I finish this Save either tonight or tomorrow, I will then start on VC. Again, the 44% Starter Save will be in Slot 1, and the 100% Save with 90 Mission Attempts, 0 Deaths/Busted/Cheats, and all 31 Special Vehicles will be in Slot 2, so I can have them TOGETHER on the SAME File. Once VC is taken care of, I will then go ahead and probably do III on Mobile again. I want to do it on Mobile again since I didn't make the BP Barracks OL converted to DP and I failed Turismo to obtain the AP Cheetah which this time, I will pass the Mission. After III on Mobile, I either will do the 2nd Save File for SA on PS2 or I will go ahead and do the 31.86% Starter Save for CW followed by finishing it to 100% with better Stats than the first time through and slightly different set of 14 Special Vehicles. So yeah, a lot of GTA Projects to keep me busy and the skills to stay sharp. All the III and VC stuff, including III on Mobile will go by quick since these games aren't even a challenge anymore. Not even the Special Vehicles give me problems anymore for these GTA's. The only ones I may take a handful of tries on are the EC Black Washington, BP/EP/FP PCJ-600 and EP/FP Hotring Racer, but that's for VC. For III, nothing is a problem. Not even passing for the Cheetah or the Bobcat. I already got the Cheetah yesterday with passing Turismo, so that makes now TWO times that I got the Cheetah with passing the Mission AND on the FIRST TRY, so I have a 100% success rate with getting the Cheetah from Turismo with passing the Mission and on the FIRST attempt. Today, I will get the Trashmaster, Rumpo, Barracks OL, and Bobcat. I already have the Kuruma, Securicar, Corpse Manana, Cheetah, and Stretch and all 5 are inside SSV where they need to be...

 

III is seriously so easy...

 

I also added the EC FBI Car to the Guide to make it more complete, despite nobody giving a sh*t about it since there is much better things to obtain and with only 13 spots, I rather fill the storage space up with things that actually matter and are harder to get, etc...

 

Anyways, when the new III Save is done with, I will replace the Photos in my Profile as well as on the first page of this Topic, underneath the Guide in the Spoilers, with new Photos of the Collection. They will all be parked the same way, of course, but some colors of the Vehicles will be different. Like in the Photos now, you will see the AP Cheetah but it was a Green one. Now? I got a Silver AP Cheetah, actually the same color as the one I currently have on iOS.

Wait, why do you need to pass Turismo for the Cheetah? I thought once you passed Turismo, you could just fail it and it won't add an attempt? So you just doing it for the challenger or am I just a noob? :p

 

Since pretty much all the vehicles in III are easy to obtain, I'm going to grab every single one of them, even the useless ones. Once I finish my starter save, just gonna start on that and any time I need to branch out to obtain another vehicle, I'll just save in another slot. Pretty pointless as there's no point in getting the EC Black Trim securicar with no proofing but oh well, I want them all and since they're all easy, I might as well. Will have the FBI Car in one of my saves too. So my first save will be my starter save with DP/UC Kuruma in SSV, one with all the best special vehicles and one with the useless/glitched ones like graffti-less Rumpo XL and lightless taxi, FBI Car and useless Securicar.

 

I can't wait to go back to VC. The save I have now is worthless, I skipped so many vehicles for no reason. San Andreas, I'm pretty happy with but now I gotta do some re-organizing. I'll probably go back to SA and use the impounds this time to hold more vehicles. I just didn't want to do it on my first run of SVs.

 

LCS is coming together slowly. I finally did all the side sh*t and I had to do it twice because my psp save file corrupted and I had to start over. I swear, I should have just played the ps2 version of LCS. Would have saved me so much trouble in terms of controls. I'm obviously doing the PS2 version of VCS. Why? Because PSP has the sh*tty garage glitch plus PS2 has more objectives, runs better and it's not like the PSP version can fix destroyed vehicles like the PSP version of LCS could.

Unlike VC where if you PASS a replayable Mission, and then FAIL it afterwards, it won't add to the Mission Attempts. However, in III, even if you pass Turismo and then later fail it, even after 100%, it WILL add +1 to Mission Attempts. Therefore the Minimum would be 79 and not 78, if you don't get the Cheetah with passing Turismo on the first go. I did this twice already on PS2. It's seriously not that bad, just takes about 6-7 minutes to push it back to the Garage. It MUST be done BEFORE the Triads hate you, and obviously the Mafia, as well. I get it BEFORE obtaining the AP/EC Stretch and once obtained, I make it a ghost and take it to SSV immediately and there sits my AP Cheetah in the beginning of the game right when the El Burro Missions are unlocked, passing Turismo on the first go.

 

Sounds like a good plan! :D:p I am just doing the best 13 for now, like my last Save. Maybe when I feel like doing III again, I will do a Save with the EP/EC Securicar plus all the NE Vehicles converted to DP/NE and the EC FBI Car converted to DP. But I'll save that for the Future and it'll be in Slot 3, obviously so it's with my Starter Save and 100% Save with the best 13.

 

Yeah, that is what happens to me. I always feel like a previous Save was useless and always a way to improve, but now, I hardly have any ways to improve. In III, I am NOT improving a single thing doing this new Save. It's gonna be the same as last time. Maybe less "Days Passed in Game" or something, but that's about it. There isn't even a Pay and Spray Visits Stat in GTA III nor the Total Playing Time Stat, either. III is pretty primitive and really quick and easy, but I still like obtaining the Special Vehicles as that is the challenging part and fitting all 13. The rest is simple. Now in VC? I am literally just doing the SAME Save as last time, but with 4 NE Vehicles (Taxi/Cabbie/Kaufman Cab/Zebra Cab) and 1 LESS Mission Attempt. Like I said, there is barely any way to improve. Just tiny things here and there. I am quite happy with all my Saves. After VC on PS2, I will run through III on iOS again quick for 1 LESS Mission Attempt, for passing for the Cheetah and to make the Barracks OL converted to BP/DP. Once that is done, I am looking to the HD Era probably and will even make Guides for IV and TLaD for the Forum at that time, probably...

 

Yeah, VCS isn't very good for PSP, but LCS is pretty good for PSP, I suppose, at least in terms of Special Vehicles, but still, I prefer PS2 in the end. Also on the PS2 Version of VCS, you can "buy" more BP/PP Vehicles compared to PSP, like a BP/PP Sanchez and a BP/PP Ventoso. If you want, can make them BP/PP/EC Black if you want. I did that for my 3rd Save File in VCS. When you get to VCS, I hope to see you in my Guide as it's basically me and Arsen Vitiuk talking in there and nobody else :D:p

Gonna be a while. LCS is one of my least favorite GTA games and I never got 100% in it. It's always a chore to play through this game, I don't even know why I dislike it so much lol. Maybe it's because I'm playing on PSP or something. Can't wait to get to VCS and especially IV. I miss those games so much and it's been forever since I played VCS. It'll also be refreshing to play the PS2 version of VCS as I always played the PSP version. Anyways, finished all Shoreside Vale objectives in GTA III and got it done while only saving 3 times. Now I got to do Staunton Island's sh*t and then do Portland's sh*t and also do all R3 missions and import/export for Portland. Fun stuff.

Actually the RC missions in GTA 3 don't add to attempts. You can improve the score and will not add an attempt. Even if you fail to improve the high score, it will still not add to attempts. I remember that back in 2014 when I was improving my 2013 100% save.

Good luck! :D:p I just obtained the BP/FP Trashmaster and DP/EC Rumpo. Now my SSV Garage is complete and has all 6 Vehicles in there fully converted. Just to finish the SI Garage next, with obtaining the BP/DP Barracks OL, AP Bobcat, DP/EC Cheetah, DP/EC Stinger, and DP/EC2 Infernus. The BP/FP Trashmaster is inside there right now, plus these 5 will complete the SI Garage. Then I just need the easy as piss BP/DP Patriot and to put it in Portland and I got all 13. Still need to finish the Story and remaining Pay Phone Missions, though. Probably tomorrow I will be done. 3 days...Save is done, lol...

He's wondering the 9 Missions in the Starter Save of which he has to do and specifically asked if the Rampages act like Missions, which they don't. We were talking about Turismo needing to be passed on the first go while getting the BP/EP/FP Cheetah. What you said has nothing to do with what we were talking about.

 

My main concern is doing it on Mobile, though. Since on Mobile, I actually need to improve with getting 1 less Mission Attempt and making the Barracks OL converted to BP/DP.

I did it again! I only re-did this Save on PS2 as I said previously due to the fact I wanted it TOGETHER with my Starter Save. Nothing is new in this Save at all. It's 100%, 0 Deaths/Busted/Cheats, 78 Mission Attempts, and all 13 Special Vehicles fully converted to DP except the BP/FP Securicar and BP/FP Trashmaster since they can't be converted. Also the Unique Corpse Manana since it's not a good idea to make it DP, either. But other than those 3 Vehicles, everything else is DP and in their ultimate form.

 

Time to move onto VC! Later on, I will come back to III and this time do it on Mobile and actually IMPROVE the Save and not just do it again like I just did for PS2...

The Infernus is EC2. The same exact Purple/Red/Brown Color can be found in traffic, but something else on the Infernus is visible and showing the EC2, but it's not the main color...

 

But yeah, you need to finish III once and for all...

 

Btw, there is an easier way to obtain these 3 EC Sports Cars. You can just drive all 3 to the Safehouse and leave them sitting there and wait for the time to run out. As long as you are sitting in one of the three with the other two visibly in sight in front of you, then there shouldn't be any problems and they shouldn't disappear. Simply after the Mission fails, one by one, park inside the Garage...You don't need to park them inside the Garage while the timer is counting down, making you need to rush even quicker...

 

You park the Stinger and Infernus inside. THEN the Bobcat on top of one of them, and THEN park the Cheetah in front. You're doing it all wrong and very sketchy lol...

 

That Bobcat also should be AP by now, thus not damaging it when trying to back it up on top of the Stinger or Infernus, etc, etc...

The Patriot is fine in SI, but it likes to roll off the Vehicles in SI unlike the Bobcat. The Bobcat stays parked on top of the Infernus perfectly...

 

I had the BP/DP Patriot in SI the FIRST TIME I ever got all 13 on PS2, but didn't like that setup much. This was also when I had the useless EC Black Trim Securicar in my Save, as well, skipping the DP/EC Cheetah. Now, I don't get the Securicar and instead get the DP/EC Cheetah, while putting the Patriot in Portland, Bobcat in SI, and AP Cheetah in SSV...Like I show in my Photos...Everything fits like that, it's easy to take the Vehicles out, etc, etc. I wouldn't recommend parking them any other way, tbh...

It might roll off if you park it on the Cheetah, but not if you drive it on top of the Infernus.

I really want to do my III Save on Mobile over, but it's going to have to wait until after my finish my 2nd Save File for SA on PS2. Once that is done, I will be switching gears and doing my III Mobile Save over again, but this time, I will have 78 Mission Attempts like on PS2 and this time, I will make sure ALL the Vehicles are converted to DP, again, like I have on PS2...

 

After it's done, I certainly won't ever need to do III again on either PS2 or Mobile, although, I will probably do another Save on PS2 in Slot 3, underneath my main Save with all 13 Special Vehicles so I can obtain the EP/EC Securicar, DP/EC FBI Car, and all DP/NE Vehicles. It'll also have 74 Mission Attempts, only failing one Mission to obtain the EP/EC Securicar...After the Slot 3 Save, then I surely will be done with III and have ALL Special Vehicles and Glitch Vehicles to exist in III but split up into 2 Save Files on PS2 since only 13 can be stored and not 14 or more, etc...
