Mission 3: Skim the Skimmer

Salvatore enters Monte Polizzo through the front entrance. Al the receptionist is there to greet him.

 

Al: Welcome, sir. What can I get you? I strongly  recommend your try our steak. And our vino rosso, the best in the whole town. And how about a-

Salvatore: Hey, hey, hey! I'm here to see Vito.

Al: Signore Leone? He's right that way, sir.

 

Al points Sal towards Vittorio, who's having lunch with with one of the family capos, Sally Durando.

 

Salvatore: Hey, Uncle.

Vittorio: Salvatore. Sit down. you remember Sally?

Salvatore: Yeah. How you been?

Sally: Fine. You want anything?

Salvatore; Nah, I'm good. So what's the deal?

Vittorio: Sally needs you to do something for him.

Salvatore: Can't he use one of his own guys?

Sally: I need someone unrelated for this one.

Salvatore: Okay. What is it?

Sally: I think one of the guys we collect from is skimming off the top.

Salvatore: How much?

Sally: Five bucks. It may seem small but that sh*t adds up over time. I know that best.

Salvatore: So you know this guy does it?

Sally: Ain't been able to catch him yet but we just know. Besides, we can't have disrespectful punks like that running around in our business. Know what I'm saying?

Salvatore: Well, I'm gonna need something better than that. I can't whack someone just cause he hurt you in the balls. I'm sorry.

Sally: Excuse me?

Salvatore: You heard what I said.

Vittorio: [yelling] Salvatore. That is no way to speak to a man of honour. Apologise immediately.

Salvatore: I'm sorry.

Sally: No, it's fine. Really.

Vittorio: And don't question orders either. He's a higher up. Go do what he asked you.

Sally: His name is Guy Becker. He lives in an apartment up Saint Mark's Avenue. Don't make too much noise.

Salvatore: Alright, I'll do it.

Sally: When it's done, meet me at my place. [Salvatore leaves]

Vittorio: I'm really sorry.

Sally: No. I totally understand. He's just young.

 

Make your way to Saint Mark's Avenue. Guy's apartment is just below what would be Saint Mark's Bistro. Find Guy's apartment by looking at the postboxes. He lives on apartment five, which is on the second floor. When you get there, Sal knocks on the door and Guy opens it.

 

Salvatore: Guy Becker?

Guy: Yeah?

Salvatore: Mr. Durando sends his regards.

 

Sal takes out his pistol and shoots him. Now get back to your car. You'll have a two-star wanted level. Collect cop bribes or go to the nearest body shop to get rid of it. After that, you have to go to Sally's betting place in the Red Light District. A cutscene begins where Sal goes inside and goes to Sally.

 

Salvatore: Hey, Sally. It's done.

Sally: Good. [Salvatore starts walking away.] Hey Sal?

Salvatore: Yeah?

Sally: I didn't want to say this in front of your uncle but you disrespect me like that again, you're gonna wake up with your body five feet away from your head. You understand?

 

Mission Passed + $20 and body shops are unlocked

Mission 4: Incoming Shipment

Salvatore enters Monte Polizzo to be greeted by Al the receptionist again.

 

Al: Mister Leone Junior, welcome. You here for food or business like usual?

Salvatore: Hey, Al. You know, I'd love to have a cup of coffee but my uncle doesn't like to be kept waiting.

Al: Understood, Mister Leone. He's in the office. If you ever get time, come here and try the bistecca fiorentina. You will love it, I promise you.

Salvatore: I'll be sure to, Al. Ciao.

 

Salvatore goes to the back of the store and enters the manager's office to find Uncle with a cigarette in hand and fumbling over a few papers which he hides as soon as he notices Sal.

 

Vittorio: Madonna. Knock before you enter, would you?

Salvatore: Good afternoon, Uncle. What was that?

Vittorio: Nothing. Don't worry about it.

Salvatore: You hiding something?

Vittorio: [rising tone] I said don't worry. Come, sit down. [the phone rings and he picks up] Ciao... Yes... Alright... When?... I got it. I'll talk to you later. Buona giornata. [he puts the phone down] Sal, I got a job for you.

Salvatore: What were those-

Vittorio: I need you to head over to the ferry station in Newport. Inside the parking lot near the station, you will find a blue Remington facing the river. It's unlocked. Take it, bring it to the docks and give it to Ignazio, a capisce?

Salvatore: Yeah, I got it. Is there anything else? [Vittorio stares back at him. There is a brief awkward pause.]

Vittorio: Like what? Are you expecting something?

Salvatore: What was in those papers?

Vittorio: Madonna mia. What am I gonna do with this kid? How many times have I told you not to ask too many questions?

Salvatore: Well, I-

Vittorio: Keep quiet. Just go and do what I told you. [he waves at the door like he's shooing him off]

 

Salvatore disgruntledly leaves the restaurant and makes his way to the Newport ferry station. He spots the blue Remington in the described location. Somehow, he senses that something is off but still gets in the car and takes it to the docks, where Ignazio Dante is waiting for him. He approaches the loading platform on the southern edge of the docks with the car and sticks his hand out the window to greet Ignazio.

 

Ignazio: Salvatore! It is you. Hey, I ain't seen you in a long time. How're you doing?

Salvatore: Trying to do good, Ignazio. How's Angelina?

Ignazio: A pain in the ass. She wants five goddamn kids. I don't know if I even want one.

Salvatore: Be careful. My uncle would give you a five hour lecture for dishonoring our traditions if he heard you say that. [both laugh]

Ignazio: Yeah, that's Vito, alright. Same old.

Salvatore leaves the car so Ignazio can prepare it for loading.

Ignazio: It's good to see you, Sal.

Salvatore: You too. Are the Joes inside? Think I'll go and say hello.

Ignazio: Tough luck. You just missed 'em.

Salvatore: Ah. Hey, before I go, I wanna ask you something. You think you might have a few jobs for me, or something?

Ignazio: What's the matter? Uncle not paying well enough?

Salvatore: Well-

Ignazio: Nah, I get it. Look, me and him got our differences. You know I mean no disrespect but he's not great at resource management, know what I mean?

Salvatore: Trust me, no one knows that better than me. So you got work for me or what?

Ignazio: Sorry to disappoint, Sal. I got nothing up right now but when I do, I'll let you know.

Salvatore: Alright, thanks. Take it easy.

The next mission will be at Salvatore's residence, and represented on the map with a house blip, similar to Momma Lopez' icon in TBoGT.

 

Mission 5: Won't Eat You

Salvatore has changed out of his suit into a casual outfit. He's walking to his kitchen when his house phone rings. He picks it up, it's Vittorio.

 

Vittorio: Salvatore. Ciao. How're you doing?

Salvatore: I'm good, Uncle V. How's the family?

Vittorio: Mariana is good. She sends you her love. Clear your schedule because we want you to have dinner with us tonight.

Salvatore: Yeah, sure. Listen, how are dealing with that problem? You spoke to people yet?

Vittorio: Don't put your mind to it. Just wear something nice tonight, okay? Ciao.

 

Salvatore forgets about the kitchen and goes outside to check his mail. Outside, he comes across his neighbour, Teresa.

 

Teresa: Heyyy, Salvatore. Where the hell you been? I ain't been seeing you around the restaurant lately.

Salvatore: I got busy at work. sh*t happens, as usual.

Teresa: Oh, don't I know it. I heard all about that sh*t the Staunton Islanders are putting on. Say, my shift starts now. Why don't you come with me and have something to eat? I'll give you a discount on your favourite, Osso Buco alla Milanese.

Salvatore: Sure. Thank you very much. Let's go.

 

The cutscene ends, and Salvatore walks to the Siciliano Restaurant with Teresa. It's where Ma Cipriani's restaurant is in LCS.

 

Salvatore: How's life, Teresa?

Teresa: f*cking insane. I broke up with this guy, Anton.

Salvatore: Why?

Teresa: The guy's a total jackass. His brain is all wormy.

Salvatore: And what about that other guy, the uuuh... What was his name?

Teresa: His heart wasn't big enough. His dick was bigger. But a real man would have both, it ain't true love if he don't.

Salvatore: Whatever you say.

Teresa: How about you? Got any sticchias you want to tell me about?

Salvatore: Not really. Things are pretty messy at work. I ain't got the time.

Teresa: What are youse doing about that? You gonna give Staunton its sh*t back?

Salvatore: I don't know. That matter is above my authority. I just gotta sit by and trust the process.

Teresa: That don't sound the way a real man handles things.

Salvatore: I said the same thing.

Teresa: Buncha wusses. Why don't you be the don? You'd be a lot better at it.

Salvatore: Not a bad idea. Something tells me that's not gonna possible for twenty or thirty years though.

Teresa: You're gonna need a woman on your side. I could hook something up.

Salvatore: Thanks but I don't need it, not right now. I'll let you know if it changes.

Teresa: Whoever you get, is gonna need a good heart.

Salvatore: Makes sense.

Teresa: And big balls. Things ain't going nowhere without 'em.

Salvatore: Okay...

 

Teresa and Salvatore walk into the restaurant. Sal takes a seat while Teresa goes to the counter. Before she can enter the worker's quarters, she gets interrupted by her boss, Mr. Gennaro.

 

Mr. Gennaro: Teresa, am I glad to see you.

Teresa: What's going on?

Mr. Gennaro: That dipsh*t Joe broke the pressure cooker.

Teresa: I told you you shouldn't have hired a non-Italian.

Mr. Gennaro: Yeah, well, I fired his ass. Now that we're one man short, everyone's working extra hard to keep up, which means, you need to get to work immediately.

Teresa: Yeah, yeah. I got it.

 

Teresa heads into the kitchen. Salvatore enjoys a cigarette. After a while, she arrives with his meal.

 

Salvatore: Thank you. It looks delicious. Belissimo.

Teresa: You're welcome. Bon appetito. [she sits down] Old fart Gennaro. What did he think was gonna happen, hiring a stranger.

Salvatore: Yeah, we got a thing about that for a reason.

Teresa: Yeah. I mean, Joe wasn't all bad. His brain was good for something but it wasn't cooking.

Salvatore: [Salvatore stares confusedly] Whatever you say.

Teresa: It's okay though. I know how to know for sure.

Salvatore: Right.

Teresa: Well, I gotta go now. There's work to do.

 

When Salvatore finishes his meal, Teresa sees him off.

 

Teresa: Hope you enjoyed it, Sal.

Salvatore: How could I not?

Teresa: By the way, you read the news?

Salvatore: No. What news?

Teresa: Something that'll make travel in this city easier. Let me show you.

Teresa goes to the vending machine in front of the restaurant, and buys Sal a newspaper. Instructions on how to use a newspaper vendor appears at the top right. Teresa shows Sal the newspaper and points at the headline.

Teresa: See that? We ain't gonna have to deal with those sh*tty ferries much longer. [Sal takes the newspaper and reads it] I'm getting back to work. Take care, Sal. Ciao

Well, they are set in the same time frame. The songs I gathered for the radio are what was good throughout the 50's, same as Mafia II does. You can find some of them in L.A. Noire, as well.

The first mission was rewritten by @Francesco Bonomo, who has my sincere thanks. Also, due to some reconsideration, I've dropped Mike Toreno to be replaced by a different character. Stay tuned to find out who it is.

At home, you'll receive a letter from Sal's mother, Liviana.

 

Spoiler

 

Dear Salvatore

 

Hello, son. I hope you're doing good. Miceli and Teodorico sent their best. Things have been looking up for us. The textile business has been getting a lot of customers recently. Miceli just upgraded his office. How have you been? Vito told me you've been working very hard. I'm happy for you, but just as concerned. I know I haven't seen you in person in fifteen years but I'm still your mother. Don't follow him around too much, Salvatore. He's a good man but he likes to make blood when it's not necessary. He doesn't tell me a lot about your work, naturally. I know you're doing vile things. It's unavoidable in your line of work but If you can avoid that messy side of your work, please do it whenever you can. If you can find the good, fun side, do that instead. Enjoy yourself. Vito has always thought he's impenetrable, but he has no idea. Even if you make it to the next century, there will always be someone luckier than you. Never forget that. Stay out of trouble as much as you can.

 

Sincerely

Your mother

 

 

You can choose to respond positively or negatively. However, both options will result in the same reply.

Spoiler

 

Dear Mother

It's ecstatic to hear from you. You don't have to explain yourself. I know you write to me because you care. I know what you mean about Uncle. He's a real difficult man sometimes. But you know I got to what I got to do. Don't worry about me. Just look after yourself and focus on your textile business. I can assure you that nothing will happen to me. I wish I could come back and visit you but it'd be too costly - besides I don't think I could handle seeing what's become of our town anyway. Tell Teodorico and Miceli I said hi.

 

 

Afterwards, you'll receive a call from Vittorio. Vittorio compliments Sal's performance on the last job and asks him to come to Atlantic Quays for the next one. Salvatore asks for a little break to cool off, reasoning that the last job was too heaty to move right from into another one. Vittorio is reluctant but Salvatore manages to convince him. Then he calls Massimo to tell him he's thought about what he said, and he wants in. Massimo is very pleased and asks Salvatore to bring a car he ordered from Atlantic Quays to a racer meet in Harwood.

 

You may go to Atlantic Quays and get the car whenever you wish to begin the next mission.

I'm just making this post to let everybody know that this concept has finally been updated. A big reason I kept away from it for so long was due to feeling dissatisfied with the first few missions so I've rewritten them. I'm taking the concept to a brand new direction than I originally intended. My first intention was to write a simple game with few characters similar to LCS but now I want to make it much more complex and detailed. Anyway, the character list has been updated (still WIP) and you can see the new missions here:

Another update. Mission 4 and 5 have also been updated. Next up is mission 6, which will conclude the rewriting of missions, after that I can finally make posts with new missions. Also, I'll make some updates to the radio stations and the newspaper system as well so stay tuned for those. Sorry about the double post.

Thanks a lot, man. Yes, it is. I'm going at it piece by piece. Right now, all of my concentration is on the Portland stage. When it's time to move to Staunton, I'll update it.

I'm reserving judgement for the moment. We'll see what happens.

 

It makes me want to ask though. You've done a great job here recreating Liberty City in 1959. Would you ever take Vice City back to the 1950s/1960s, or Los Santos back to the 40s?

 

There are less connections to the past in those games, but they could still be very interesting.

Those are pretty interesting ideas but no, not really. I think this is the lower limit on when a GTA ought to be set. It's wacky and satirical, but I just can't imagine how you could go on and implement that during WWII without goinf overboard.

 

I.E. American troops just kill whoever they see on D-Day, such as Norman civilians.

 

See what I mean? Besides I think LA Noire did a pretty good job at that already.

 

As for VC, I'm not sure. It could be done but I don't know if anything noteworthy happened during that time besides the Cuban Revolution and its effecte on Miami-Dade. Other than that, maybe the Trafficante family. Each GTA is purposefully set during an iconic time for crime, a time when a certain type of crime was on its peak and such. With VC, Latin-American drug syndicates taking over Miami, with SA it's African-American gangs and the rap game. With IV, it's Russian crime syndicates. What would be theme for VC? It would have more to do with the Cold War than crime, I feel like. A theme fit more for Agent (R.I.P.) than GTA.

It makes me want to ask though. You've done a great job here recreating Liberty City in 1959. Would you ever take Vice City back to the 1950s/1960s, or Los Santos back to the 40s?

 

There are less connections to the past in those games, but they could still be very interesting.

Despite already being covered by LA Noire, I think LS in the 1940s or 50s would be a good one. And as I was telling @sabitsuki there's probably only one man for the job.
