What do you like to do in GTASA outside storyline?

Recommended Posts

GrudgefromSanAndreas

Ciao tutti GTAFrutti!

 

I didn't find a similar topic in this thread (altho i didnt search too much either) so i decided to make this thread. Basically you just write what you enjoy doing in-game, e.g. police killing spree, gang wars, various cheat combinations or maybe killing specific peds or stealing specific vehicles, anything!

 

I always liked to enable cheats for gangs everywhere, "STATEOFEMERGENCY", fast cars so i can drive with my gang in a Sultan performing drive-by and escaping if needed, no police aka no wanted level ever, all weapons but not unlimited ammo (cause it'd be less fun) etc - i combine all those in one game and have endless fun :pp I also like to do burglary side mission and unique stunt jumps...

RULES AND NOTES:

  • You know what, multiplayer can be mentioned as i believe it's probably easier to monitor one huge topic than hundreds of small ones, but singleplayer shall still remain the main focus, so you can tell us some awesome, fun and interesting experiences you had in SAMP and MTASA :D

  • You can talk about how you use mods, but it's not the priority, so it's better you avoid mentioning mods unless you use it in an interesting and fun way.

    After all, there are plenty of things to do without mods.

  • You can mention using trainers aswell :D

  • If you want to upload big and/or a lot of pics of what you're doing/did, put them in a spoiler, this could be used instead of posting an extremely long text

  • If you're currently not playing SA or if you never played and want to do it so at some point in future, then you can say what you did/used to do or what you'd want or plan to do...

  • You can also try something new, experiment and discover something if you haven't done so yet.
  • Keep in mind i might not be able to like every single post, hope you don't mind :colgate:
  • I really think this topic would be useful, so dear mods and admins, please don't delete or lock this thread unless things get out of control
  • Rules and notes might be updated depending on the situation

Buying that perfect outfit that finally made you feel like you were a part of The Grove Street Family.

 

Working your ass off because the boxing coach wouldn't train you until you put on more muscle.

 

Go around San Andreas trying to Memorize all the phrases every pedestrian would yell at you from the neighborhood.

 

Keeping up with the frustration of having your territory constantly attacked by a rival gang.

 

Going around stealing random vehicles just because you can easily escape.

I like to stalk street criminals until they steal a car and then I give pursuit (with the cheat for never being wanted). I either dress as a cop and drive a police vehicle or I dress as Ricardo Tubbs from Miami Vice and drive a white Cheetah( variant with only one mirror).

 

I also like to drive a black indestructible Phoenix in the desert while listening to the Knight Rider theme.

 

I listen to eurobeat when participating in races. I sometimes eliminate my rivals by activating the flying cars cheat, causing them to fly away and never return.

 

My version of GTA San Andreas is from the Windows store. It's even worse than the Steam or Xbox 360 version. Like in Android, fire trucks and ambulances are glitched and will almost never respond without mysteriously disappearing. When surviving the riot cheat, I use an M4 and climb on top of a house near the safehouse north of Los Santos International. I wait a long time for the fire truck to appear but I then escort it with my Swat Tank.

There was an exact same topic, believe me :p Doesn't mean you shouldn't have created this one. It'd good to re-live the fund times we've had with this game.

 

In my spare time I like to just drive around the countryside - it started donkey years ago when we all were searching for the myths, and it stuck with me. SA has a beautiful countryside and I have a few of my favourite spots. I may launch the game for 15 minutes and I set myself an objective to watch the sunset or a sunrise in a certain location, so I rush there. If I realise I won't make it there in time, I can head to a closer one, or change the objective completely. Some memorable settings - sunrise over Oram bridge (or rather under it), midnight at Panopticon, sunrise over Sherman dam.

 

I don't have a place that I hate in SA, so I naturally may go into the city too.

 

Sometimes I like to replay the beginning - it has that very nice ghetto 90-ies atmospheric feeling to it, without the unnecessary grime of GTA 5.

 

If I want a change from that I either pick a random mission - trucking for instance, - or replay one of my favourite missions just for fun. Toreno's missions are the best.

Over the years, I have had evolving patterns of cruising, usually a circuit just to get me out of real life for a half hour. I just mentioned in another thread that I used Time Sync, so game-time stays in real time. Now that I've made so many ENEX and IPL mods, I pretty much have a custom universe to play in.


The relaxation, oddly, comes from a rather militantly-adhered-to routine that's nearly tedious.


I begin in bed in my jammies with my significant other (Prickle Pine Safe-House Interior). I use the john, put on a sweatshirt, go downstairs and mill in the kitchen for a minute. I usually break here for coffee if I dont already have it. Then I go into the home office for a minute. At this point of the day I am usually checking emails and messages IRL. Then I put on my suit, grab the Colt and Uzi, and use the cell phone, then go outside and get in the golf cart to drive around back to the heli pad.


I then fly the heli over the bay south to some offices in San Fierro and mill around for about a minute just to look in my custom office, which is one I modded with lots of art and knick-knacks. Here there's a portrait of the president with his arms crossed glowering down at me, some nature paintings and a few risque 'tasteful art' paintings.


There is also an outside deck; I used the City Planning interior merged by ENEX to what I think is the San Fierro version of San Francisco's Metreon Mall by Lombard Street (in-game); the model is called 'lowmall' (#10052) and Metreon is considered to be an old eyesore, and is the only one I know of with terraces and a sky-walk over the street until it was torn down recently. I land the heli on a heli pad across the street, walk over, go in, and then go downstairs and exit to an alley by a loading door and drive to SFO. I get on the "101" going south. Since I listen to morning talk radio anyways, and usually start that before the game is even on, I can listen to live local San Francisco talk on stream while driving through San Fierro (or LA talk if in Los Santos). I get off the exit and drive to SFO, driving through the underground car-park to the airport 'apron'.


Here begins my fun part: flying my custom Lear to LAX.




I have User Tracks of Air-Traffic-Control chatter for each of the four airports/strips. Here I usually take a smoke break. After all, I've been flying or driving for ten minutes at this point, and likely stopped to shoot some jackhole that clipped my headlights while cutting in front of me, which likely led to a two minute detour to dodge the cops.


So sitting in my jet listening to the engines run over both SFO ATC chatter and local radio, I'll finish my smoke and coffee (and probably a coffee cake by now), and taxi to the runway. (I even learned the protocol for this, which is how I learned the runway signs in San Andreas actually make no sense at all and are just there for looks). When the cigarette is out, that's "Lear TreeSixNiner Clear for Departure" and off I go.


I like to fly/drive in First Person, which means I can't tell if the wheels made it up or down unless I switch view in the middle of take-off. My input devices have on-screen visual confirmation, and am ashamed to admit that when I toggled the Capslock to the Landing Gear, I even modded my keyboard to display an icon and message confirming the wheels are up or down when I hit Capslock.




One can only be in so many plane crashes because they mistakenly thought the wheels were down before they seek a solution.


Then I pick one of two routes to land at LAX, either going around west of Diablo/Chilead, or east over Montgomery and landing over Inland Empire.


By then, LAX ATC chatter is playing, I land where theres a chopper waiting (or Admiral, depending on whether) and make my way to Maze/Library Tower where my other office is. I have ENEXs everywhere, so there are several points of entry and exit. I use the building with terraces next to the tower, not the tower itself. So, typically from the helipad I put on the roof, sometimes the terrace, I will enter to a different floor of the City Planning interior. Here I converted the meeting/break room into another office with the same usual decor. I converted the Medic room to an executive washroom, so the first thing I do is use the john after a long trip.


(I know I could use the interstate and be there in five minutes if I race, but stretching it to 20 minutes with planes is more fun).


Then I go into my office where two business peds are already chatting, sit down and puff my cigar. This floor also has some vacation photos I took in Miami Beach, where I was lucky enough to stay at the same hotel Vercetti's hotel was modeled after, so its sort of an in-game Vice City joke to see the real-life hotel hanging on the wall. (Trivia: its from a Czeck architect of the Art Deco era who has several such hotel designs in Miami Beach, and also happens to be one used recently in the American Crime Story series on Versace's murder)




And thats my 25 minute near-daily routine, plus the trip back later in the day, which is only about 10 minutes since I skip San Fierro on the way back. I land at SFO but just drive back. My favorite part is driving up to my gate at night, because it means the real day is over, and its nice to pretend I am actually coming home to a huge gated estate in the pastoral outskirts of Marin County (and finally out of city traffic).




And then its home-sweet-Safe House.








I also like taking the boat out on weekends from a marina by the house I made in Robada






to one I made in Santa Monica






- and just letting the boat sit on the water as a clock-screensaver (since I am using Time Sync Tool) while CJ lounges on the deck.


Occasionally, I will drive with my 'spouse' over to Vegas. Unfortunately, I cant show the mods I made to the Old Strip, since they would be inappropriate lol.


Sorry, I couldn't find spoiler tags. And for mentioning mods. Its just that I spend much more time modding than actually roaming, so its sort of what I do.Roaming is how I get the ideas for things I'd like to add or change.


At least you got a story about how whacky some players like me are. That has to be worth something. :p

Agreed. If for no other reason than hearing James Woods voice come out of a GTA character cracks me up. I love the line "Stolen plane? I don't know anything about that buddy. You're on your own".

 

But yeah, its weird when you start over and are transported back to that humble little home in a cul-de-sac in Compton. The nostalgia is over-whelming. I think the story deliberately creates that feeling, since one of the end monologues by CJ explicitly makes references to how far he has come and all the things he's seen. Thats whats so heart-warming about the end, an inspiration for people everywhere just to pursue something better than what they have, and to remind them that there's so much more to the world than where any of us came from.

I just like flying around in planes and stuff like that. I really wish there was more aerial content, but just flying around in a hydra with 6 stars is fun enough for me tbh. As such, I got really good at flying in SA, and it actually got me interested in aviation IRL. (I also like doing the plane 'races' in LV, my best time for WWA is 2 mintues if I remember correctly.)

I also really enjoy riding BMX, I don't know what it is about 'em. They're slow and annoying, but it has this charm to it that makes them so much fun. I usually have my bicycle skill maxed out before I'm even done with act 1.

Cheats. Cjphonehome, the 6 Star Wanted Cheat, the Fat CJ Cheat. I like creating a new save and just f*cking around. I tried completing the game as fat CJ but I got stuck at the Black Project mission, where you have to be skinny to do it. Overall really funny and a blast to play.

Side missions. So far I have only completed Firefighter, however I am still trying to complete Ambulance. After that, I will try pimping, courier and then taxi.

Clothes shopping. Just like me IRL, I love shopping for clothes. The only problem is I am always broke AF, and so I clothes shop virtually to calm myself.

 

Riding around. Generally just cruising around on fancy cars and bikes. (My favorite car is the Turismo) It's just so satisfying going at 200+mph, doing tricks and sh*t. And with the huge map I practically have infinite space to ride around in. I really love the races as well, really well designed and a blast to do.

Anyway guys, this is my first post on the GTA forum, so I hope that I will have lots of fun here and be a welcome member. (I am known to be sorta trolley sometimes, but I'll try my best to contain myself :p)
Have a good one
Sincerely
Martha El Gnomio

Me too. I even made a corny AT-400 tutorial, but the game had been out so long by then that it was sort of passé.. I spent about half a year playing at being an airline pilot just to get better at it.

After completing 100% I started by role playing as a photographer. I would take a lot of crime related photos at first around los santos. Like I was photojournalist or documentary trying to capture the hard reality of the streets. Police vs gang shootouts, drug dealings, dead bodies, gang members posted up on street corners toting their guns, and throwing up gang signs as cops drive by, police mavericks overlooking the streets of east los santos with their spotlights, etc.

 

Really put the gang areas in a new perspective for me. The gang members are very entertaining to study, and listen to as they walk down the streets drinking their beers, smoking their blunts, and talking sh*t. Funny to watch them run up to girls on the streets trying to "holler" at them. The Ballas are my favorite gang in the game for sure. Love their quotes, and style.

 

I then moved all around San Andreas taking photos of the beautiful landscapes. Waiting for hours (in game) on the high hill tops of the cordillera waiting for the perfect moment to snap a picture of the sun rising behind San Fierro, and Gant bridge is just one example.

 

I could go on forever about things I like to do outside of the story in San Andreas. Such an amazing game. If you are creative enough you could almost always find something else to do. I've played through the game probably a couple dozen times, and I still always comeback.

 

Here are a few of my favorite photos I have took. I never use any mods, especially not visual mods. I do not believe in them.

I use portal gun mod, go to Ballas territory, create two portal points (one at open place and one inside a secure and closed off place) then I p*ss off Ballas and endlessly fight with them. It is very funny 😀

Achieving 100%, which, I think, is quite enough. Plus, as being said, there are indeed wide range of activities in this game beyond that. What I specifically liked to do were completing the races and the vehicle challenges, acquiring rare vehicles and storing them, buying threads,.and of course exercising in the gyms. After completing the game 100%, I did even transport my fellow gangs to SF and LV to conflict with gangs in those territories. In my opinion, mods are ruining the atmosphere of the game, so never enjoyed them.

I have one save file where it's saved just before the "Doberman" mission. So, I start and pass that mission (take over the Glen park). And, then, I simply try to take over an entire city, in one run, without saving. To win all the gang territories. But, I've established certain rules for doing this:

1. no Minigun, Flamethrower or RPG allowed. I can also say no heat seeking RPG allowed, since I only use it to destroy these "gang cars" (btw even today I'm not exactly sure what they are, some "small gang leaders" escaping the area you attacked or what) in case they appear very far so I can't destroy them by using some rifle. Also, no "bombs" allowed: no grenades, molotovs, satchels. I use shotguns, uzis, assault rifles, and sniper/rifle.

2. if the Ballas/Vagos are attacking without gunfire, then I fight them without gunfire. And not just without gunfire, but literally only with my bare hands, using only the gym attack (try fighting 4 Ballas armed with baseball bats and you'll see it's not that easy). The "less heated" levels of their attacks (the ones without AK47) I also fight without AK47/M5. And of course, for the last wave, I use any shotguns or rifles.

3. I try to destroy all above mentioned "gang cars" (or at least as many as I can). Hence, I always start a gang war with some bike and keep it close to me, so in case the car appears far, I can quickly jump on my bike and run to destroy it before it disappears. Also, the bike might come in handy when some dumb Ballas/Vagos get stuck very far from the war zone, or when you need to move fast, in order to avoid getting caught between 2 groups (which is basically instant bye bye cruel World).

4. No death allowed. If I die, I don't continue the fight. I can only take all the territories without getting killed. Also no cheats allowed of course.

5. I'm trying to take over the territories in some order, not just randomly. I usually start by taking the light Ballas territories in west Los Santos, then I move arround Willowfield area. After I'm done with that, I go to Idlewood. After clearing Idlewood, then the Ballas are left in kinda square looking zone in East Los Santos, where all their territories that they still hold are together, next to each other. I then start with the Vagos turfs, from the Mulholland intersection to the coast, I take entire northern Los Santos. Then I take more Ballas turfs, cleaning the territories approximately left of the railway/Jefferson motel, leaving few East Los Santos areas for them. Then back to the Vagos again. I start from the Seville families/LS forum area, and go up, take one territory after another until I reach the end of LS on the north, leaving Vagos only one turf arround Los Flores. Then I finish off the Ballas, leaving them only one turf as well, that is next to the Vagos' last turf. So now I have one turf left of both, next to each other, and all of it completely surrounded by the GSF. And there is Smoke's crack palace in it (not much important, but kinda funny). Then I simply first take over the Vagos turf, then the Ballas one, and - victory :) It's not easy to take it all without dying with the rules I follow. But it for sure is a great fun.

 

I also love the races. Sometimes I just go and try to pass all of them from the first try.

 

And, I have one save file where I used all the slots: in every slot it's saved before unlocking another region. For example, first save is before "The Green Sabre" that unlocks Badlands, 2nd save before "Are you going to San Fierro" that unlocks San Fierro, 3rd one before "Yay ka Boom Boom" which unlocks Bone County etc etc. So sometimes I just load and start doing the missions from one of these save slots: SF missions, dessert missions, LV missions etc. Not saving, just enjoying playing it. Trying new strategies, trying various stuff during the missions, trying to establish an order of playing missions, managing phone calls etc.

 

Many times I also go to the stadium events and practice them just for fun (you'll get much better results when you're not pressured with "Must pass it!", because you're relaxed). Also you'll be better in learning the strategies, noticing the important small things. For example, that's how I was able to pass the hardest stadium event for me, the Kickstart (I only play with frame limiter on, and am only interested in max scores (61 points with Kickstart in particular)), hence it's a real pain in the ass. But I've kept doing it for fun when I'm bored, developed some skills for some difficult coronas, established the exact path in order to a)not waste too much time driving arround, and b)do all the hardest ones first, and then simply collect the rest. Or NRG 500 challenge, I kept doing it for fun, so now it's almost impossible that I fail it. Bloodring as well, practicing for fun made me pass it with 1:00 time spent in the ring, the lowest possible time, basically I was the only one who collected the red arrows in the mission, no rival car reached any).  And the same applies for the schools: Everyone complains about the Flying school, but I've just kept doing it for fun when I'm bored, and now I can always pass it within half an hour. Bike school is a joke, the easiest all of them. Boat school also very easy, the first and the last task were little harder due to frame limiter but some casual practicing and it gets pretty easy. From all 4 schools, I enjoy flying and driving school the most of all, there are some really cool tasks. That's how I mastered the driving school as well, today the only one that sometimes takes time is these 5 laps in Banshee but all the others are easy. Anyways 30-40 mins maximum and all golds are there.

 

I also like to practice driving, jumping with a car, flying, properly landing and such stuff when I'm just messing arround. Especially jumping from LV (the fence in the middle of the bridge) and SF (small hill next to the Rodeo bridge) with some particular cars. For example, I'm trying to find any way I can bring Barracks, Bandito or Monster to LS by using these jumps (I don't wanna use the undrowning glitch for my ultimate starter save that I'm planning to start soon, because it feels like cheating to me), so far I've had no success, Barracks and Monster seem really unable to make it, but that Bandito is damn close to land on the ground, but still always falls in the water. For example, this is how I discovered that if you destroy it once it falls into the water, it will almost allways reappear straight away at Helena's house so you can try to practice the jump again, but if you leave it in the water then you have to wait for a long time for the other one to spawn at her house. And, once I jump over the LV bridge, I need to reach the Mulholland house quick and safe, because I'm not collecting police bribes or using Pay'n'sprays, so I need to avoid the main roads or the police will destroy my car (which is usually pretty damaged by escaping from LV and jumping over the brige) and that's not easy in Red County, but finding the best route and mastering it was pretty fun for exploring the Red County. 

 

And, one interesting thing is, if you get on a highway, block the road, and just throw a bomb in the middle of 15-20 cars, you'll get like 3-4 stars. But, if you make the same scenario and just destroy one car using hand/leg/melee weapon and then by exploding it destroys 20 another cars, you won't get any stars lol. Sometimes I go on the highway and do this for fun, to see how many cars I can destroy in one turn. LV ring arround the city is the best for it.

 

I also like to go to SF and just stand on the road full of people walking, and listen to what they're talking about, there's some really funny stuff. Many times they speak to you of course. Sometimes they get upset with your answers and attack you. And I especially like to stand close to SF Rifa or my beloved Da Nang Boys, to see if they'll ask me something, say anything in general, how they'll react to my answers, and of course to beat the sh*t out of them with my bare hands if they act too smart :)

After completing 100% I started by role playing as a photographer. I would take a lot of crime related photos at first around los santos. Like I was photojournalist or documentary trying to capture the hard reality of the streets. Police vs gang shootouts, drug dealings, dead bodies, gang members posted up on street corners toting their guns, and throwing up gang signs as cops drive by, police mavericks overlooking the streets of east los santos with their spotlights, etc.

 

Really put the gang areas in a new perspective for me. The gang members are very entertaining to study, and listen to as they walk down the streets drinking their beers, smoking their blunts, and talking sh*t. Funny to watch them run up to girls on the streets trying to "holler" at them. The Ballas are my favorite gang in the game for sure. Love their quotes, and style.

 

I then moved all around San Andreas taking photos of the beautiful landscapes. Waiting for hours (in game) on the high hill tops of the cordillera waiting for the perfect moment to snap a picture of the sun rising behind San Fierro, and Gant bridge is just one example.

 

I could go on forever about things I like to do outside of the story in San Andreas. Such an amazing game. If you are creative enough you could almost always find something else to do. I've played through the game probably a couple dozen times, and I still always comeback.

 

Here are a few of my favorite photos I have took. I never use any mods, especially not visual mods. I do not believe in them.

Great photos.

 

But you should use some mods, it greatly enhances the experiences of what you do outside of the story. SkyFX and Project 2dfx you should use because all it is, is standard default SA graphics, but sharper, clearer and better lighting effects.

I guess the type of visual mods I do not like are more specifically ENB series type mods. I just do not like how shiny everything is, just seems.. off to me I guess I could say, but I'll give those a try since you say they truly do enhance the game. Thanks for the compliment.

I 100 percent agree with you about what you said here about ENBs for SA. When I started modding SA, I was so excited to use these new ENBs that provided highly advanced visuals and graphics. I used a number of them, the best ones too, and I can tell you that you are right - they look out of place for the game, they were either too shiny, too sharp, way too detailed, or too colourful. Some had nice artistic background effect, but they were too blurry. Most importantly, all these ENBs greatly affected the game's overall performance, causing a bit too much stutter and a drop in FPS, and I decided to stop using them because of this specific reason. Besides, SA is a 14 year-old game and all these advanced ENBs just naturally don't suit the game anyway in my opinion. 

 

Someone gave me great advice and told me about Skgyfx and Project 2Dfx. These mods are not ENBs, as they do not change the original graphics of the game at all. Skygfx simply gives the PC version and the classic PS2 version look (which looks much better than the default PC version), but with much clear, sharper resolution. Project 2Dfx just enhances the lighting effects of light-emitting objects in the game like street lamps, traffic lights and building lights, it gives the cities and towns a more vibrant feel, but that is it. 

 

Use this to download both Skygfx and Project 2dfx https://gtaforums.com/topic/753764-san-andreas-downgrader/

I replaced some peds and buildings to make the game even more agreable to look at.
