Did anyone ever noticed this about "The Introduction" models?

Recommended Posts

Lordani_66

What I have noticed in "The Introduction" (special 20 minute video made in San Andreas engine to explain the storyline of GTA SA, that was added to PS2 collector's edition) is that some models were re-used from the game and were meant to represent different people  than they were supposed to show in the original game. And I am not taling about your generic peds, no, I mean models that were unique in GTA SA, for example:

 

Officer Pendelbury:

latest?cb=20181024210405

 

Is clearly just a more pale, blonde version of officer Hernandez:

latest?cb=20070515120222

 

The guy that T-Bone and Toreno were beating up in San Fierro (guy on the right):
latest?cb=20150519041039

 

Is clearly a mexican gangster, friend of Cesar Vialpando in the beginning of Los Santos portion of the game:

latest?cb=20180201210650

 

Who knows, mayne there is more? Anyone ever found this out? I think it's pretty cool and mysterious, I know these are not teh same people, and only the models are the same (or slightly altered), but it feels like as if GTA SA was a movie and these people (actors/models) were just playing different roles.

Noooo, their models are clearlydifferent. GTA SA has this graphics style where actually a lot of model faces are very similar but I wasn't talking about this in my OP.

Yeah, I noticed. The latter is kinda funny cuz the character looks like a tough badass in the mission he appears in, but R* shatters that personality by using the exact same model for the supposed snitch that T-Bone beats to death. Maybe it was a "favor" for the players who instantly hated him. *shrug*

Yeah I remember thinking the same when I first saw pendelbury. The devs were just cutting corners

Interesting, they probably didn’t feel like making new models for something like this and they knew that very little people would notice.
