Well, if you want to talk about LCS, go to that Topic. This one is only for GTA III and since you finished III besides the Cheetah Video, then I will wait for that to be posted here and you to move to the LCS Topic to continue the discussion about LCS Special Vehicles...

Yeah, I can add your Video into the Guide since there is none in the Guide or on Youtube. But it's self explanatory to get one. You just hang around the Safehouse and throw some Grenades out into the street or use RPG to get a 5 star wanted level. Then just let an EC Black FBI Car follow you into the area where your Police Bribes are. Just pick up 5 Police Bribes to lose the wanted level and then just jack the FBI Car and store it. Doing so will give you a 1 star wanted level, but the FBI will NOT shoot at you with a 1 star, but will try and bust you, so drive off quickly once you are inside of it and can take control of it, etc.

 

I just don't care about such useless Vehicles as these, especially for a main Save. It's why I will get them all in the 2nd Save File eventually...

I will propably get it on my next save and make it DP (Can't be made DP with thieves, so...)

Yeah, I will probably use "Rumble" to make the DP/EC FBI Car on PS2 or even "Kanbu Bust Out." It'll work, as long as it's not doing it with a Taxi Passenger as that glitches up the game and it's permanent with blips on the map for Taxi Driver AND Vigilante. It's best to do these things while you are on a Mission and with a Passenger..........Or if you're playing PC Version, change button layout, then making DP Vehicles with Emergency Vehicles is simple...

 

For all the NE Vehicles: Taxis, Cabbies, Hoods Rumpo XL's, etc, etc, these easily can be made DP with the Scripted Passengers...I'll have everything DP/NE, DP/EC, and the EP/EC Securicar by the end of the second Save...

So it turns out that the NE Cabbie and NE Borgnine DO NOT EXIST. I confirmed this by editing one of my saves on PC. I removed the extras from both the Cabbie and Borgnine, but the light on top remained. I guess that's because there's only 1 light style on those cars, whereas the Taxi has 2 different light styles.

 

Now, why the Hoods Rumpo XL can spawn NE despite having only one graphic on the side is beyond me. For some reason, Rockstar opted to include the graffiti as an extra rather than just embed it directly into the model.

Wow! Thanks for the information! ;)

 

So the ONLY NE Vehicles in III are Lightless Taxi and Graffitiless Hoods Rumpo XL? That's so strange since there is TONS of Lightless Vehicles in VC and also others missing other kinds of parts and in SA, LCS, VCS, there is also quite a few NE Vehicles, too...

 

I wanted to do that 2nd Save File for III, but tbh, I am considering scrapping the Project. I'd be only obtaining an EP/EC Securicar, DP/EC FBI Car, DP/NE Taxi, and DP/NE Hoods Rumpo XL. 4 Special Vehicles is too few to care...Plus, 3 of these can be obtained ANYTIME, even after 100%. So I'd pretty much be doing the entire game just for ONE Special Vehicle and that ONE Special Vehicle isn't even that hard to get and CAN'T be made DP, so I see no reason to bother with the Project and doing a 2nd Save File for III. I also am considering scrapping my 2nd Save File for VC, too, since in that Save, all I would be going for is EC Black Vehicles (at the cost of +2 to Mission Attempts each time I convert a Vehicle to EC Black) and NE Vehicles. Not to mention, I'd have to start over at 0% instead of 44% since I need to use a Rampage in which is obviously completed in my Starter Save just to use it to duplicate "The Party" in order to make EC Black Vehicles. So I honestly doubt I would do that 2nd Save File for VC, either. However, I will update my iOS Save for VC since it still includes the FAKE Silver/White Stretch. I can remove that fake Vehicle from my Garage and then get some NE Vehicles to take its place and "update" the Save. I can also try and get the EP/FP Hotring Racer I still never got on iOS but have got on PS2 twice, so it's only a matter of time until I get it on iOS, too.

Well, technically the DP/UC FBI Car AFTER 100% is only obtainable on PC.

Well, it actually CAN be made DP using the Taxi Glitch on PS2, but SOMETIMES Taxi AND Vigilante will be activated and if that happens, obviously you need to reload and try again since that glitches the game. I've already been able to successfully use an Emergency Vehicle other than a Taxi and be able to use the Crusher with it, but never saved any DP Emergency Vehicles. But yeah, that's still not enough to get me to do the Save over :D:p

 

Once I finish my 2nd SA Save File on PS2 that I am currently working on and finishing up in the next 6 to 10 days, I will be switching gears and doing my new and improved III Save again, but this time on iOS and going to make it identical to what I have on PS2. Once I finish that, III is finalized for good on both PS2 and iOS. I won't be bothering with III anymore once I finish the iOS Save next.

Can't you just use a tank to shove the turismo cheetah into your Portland garage? I remember doing it and it was so much easier (1.5 out of 5 stars, in my opinion.)

He put it at a higher star rate because he gets the Cheetah while passing the mission. This is done so that the mission Turismo doesn't add a mission attempt to the stats. Yes, Turismo will still add to it even if you passed it the first time and replay it after 100%. So the best time to get the Cheetah is the first time you do the Turismo mission in one go. The pass method is more difficult than the fail method (the method you are on about).

You can do that, but sadly as Misunderstood said it adds attempts even after 100%... had i known this earlier i would have one mission attempt less

As far as I know, yes those are the only two. It's possible that an NE Mule, Yankee, Coach, and Firetruck may exist, since the liveries on each of those vehicles is considered an "extra". However, I'm not sure if a) it's normal for these vehicles to spawn without a livery, if it is then an NE version is not unique/special; and b) how one would go about spawning one of these NE vehicles without using something like PC replays.

Same way i got the NE Bloodring Bangers in VC, by driving very fast past them and hoping they are glitched.

Meanwhile, you knew. I've told you how many times? fnxrak told you. It's been known for at least 15 months (1 year, 3 months) about the passing Method. You simply CHOOSE to obtain it with failing the Mission after 100%. I told you to get it when El Burro becomes available before the Triads and Mafia hate Claude but you didn't want to. Not my problem you have 79 or higher Mission Attempts when you can have 78 as the lowest, like I have on PS2 (twice now) and what I soon will also have on my new Mobile Save for III.

Ok, thanks for the information! I'm not much into NE Vehicles since they are just Glitched Vehicles and all NE Vehicles in all GTA's can be obtained anytime. Vehicles like that have a very low priority to me and there is many other Special Vehicles to collect so I don't bother with them. Some of the NE Bikes are cool in SA, but that's about it...

And how much of this Method is NOT luck? Driving by fast "works," but it's far from reliable...

I understand that I may sound a little pedantic, but it is realistic to complete all El Burro missions when tank is already available, which allows getting Cheetah using a tank method without additional attempt. Trial by Fire is not affected at all, I Scream You Scream can be completed without entering St. Mark's and Chinatown (especially since you are allowed to use any Mr. Whoopee, not only the one that is driving in Portland during the mission) and during Big'n'Veiny mafia doesn't have shotguns. The only real problem is actually passing the mission by ending it in a tank. Completing the mission purely in a tank is quite a difficult task, but you can leave a tank in a safe area near the end of the race beforehand, use, for example, Bobcat from Evidence Dash to drive through most of the race, leave a tank in a safe area near the end of the race beforehand, switch to a tank, leaving Bobcat safe, wait for a Cheetah, win a race, push Cheetah to garage and, without entering it, get back to Bobcat and return it to a garage.

 

Of course, this is not an easy task, but it shows that it's possible to obtain Cheetah with a tank without additional mission attempt.

Where's the other 3?

 

What 3? BP/FP Securicar = Mission Failure. Unique Corpse Manana = Mission Failure. AP/EC Stretch = Mission Failure. BP/FP Trashmaster with Bomb = Mission Failure. DP/EC Cheetah/Stinger/Infernus = Mission Failure.

 

He already said he wasn't going for any Special Vehicles that require a Mission Failure. I swear you never read what people actually say...

 

Since I have a strict "no wasted/busted/mission failures" policy, I'm only going for vehicles that don't require mission failure.

 

Can you see it now?

Yeah but he could've obtained 3 random DP cars. There is enough space for that anyways

Well, that is true. I didn't think of that. For instance, since there is no special Banshee in III, he could of made a DP Banshee. There is FAKE DP Sentinels and Mafia Sentinels, too, so he could of made REAL DP Sentinel or DP Mafia Sentinel, etc, etc. However, I wouldn't go about making random DP Vehicles in III as that never interested me. What I use the DP Conversion for is making the other Special Vehicles which exist already in their ultimate, best form. Like the BP/EP/FP Cheetah...Add DP onto it, and now it's AP. That is how I use the DP Conversion in III. I never really saw a point to make just random DP Vehicles since I have plenty of DP Vehicles already in the main Save from making the already Special Vehicles into their ultimate form.

 

When it comes to Mission Failures, I am not as strict with this, but I do get as low as I can. But if a Special Vehicle REQUIRES you to fail, damn right am I going to fail it. I wouldn't skip a Special Vehicle just cuz it required a Mission Failure. The Special Vehicle is always more important than these Stats. Besides, anyone can do Minimum Stats as if you mess up, you reload. However, not EVERYONE can obtain a Special Vehicle, even if it has a Mission Failure. So at the end of the day, failing a Mission to obtain a Special Vehicle is always a greater challenge than remembering to reload the game when you screw up to keep the Stats as low as possible. That's the easy part...

I'm not too concerned with ensuring that all of my garages are filled to the brim. I prefer to collect cars that are already special to begin with and make them DP if possible.

Yeah, when it comes to III, that is what I like, too. It's different in other GTA's, though. Like in SA you can convert any Vehicle to AP and you can also convert any Vehicle to any Exclusive Color basically, as well, so there is some interesting things you can do there. In LCS, I use the DP and PP Conversion the same as the DP Conversion in III. I don't just make random useless DP Vehicles to fill space. I use the Conversions to add DP/PP where necessary to the already existing Special Vehicles. In VCS, I use the EC Black Conversion to also add it to already existing Special Vehicles. I don't really use Conversions to make random, useless Vehicles. I only use them mainly to ADD the special property onto an existing Special Vehicle.

I believe DP Emergency vehicles are pretty much Unique on PS2/Mobile, since they USUALLY leave a blip behind on the map if you don't make them DP during missions

Anyways, I will be starting my new GTA III iOS Save File in the coming week or so. I can't wait to get the BP/EP/FP Cheetah with passing the Mission. Once I do that, then the Save will officially be better than my current iOS Save File since I failed Turismo to get it before.
