Cool Things You Didn't Know About : San Andreas

Recommended Posts

Guest

Share the things you didn't know about San Andreas until now/much later after you first played the game. Yes it's a near 15 year old game but the Vice City, IV and V subforums already have this sort of thread, and if Vice City could have it I think San Andreas can have one as well. Also many may already know most of the things in this game, but I still think it'd be nice to discuss the interesting stuff in this game that you didn't discover until much later.

 

I'll Start

- Mad Dogg and OG Loc have their own clothing lines in Victim. While OG Loc's brand is costlier than Mad Dogg's initially, it reverses after the mission Cut Throat Business indicating the change in fortune of both characters

- The actor for Dutch in the RDR series is credited for voicing a pedestrian and a radio commercial in San Andreas. The actor for Luis in TBOGT has an uncredited role for stunts in this game as well according to his IMDb page. 

- Cars like the Voodoo and Glendale that don't have a visible fuel tank will instead explode when you shoot their license plate

 

Sorry if there's already a similar topic,it's just that I didn't find anything similar while using the search function. If there is, in my defense it's my first time creating a topic in GTAF so please don't be too harsh!

When you kill someone in SA with spray can or flowers they will still blood.

If you are fat(maximum level),you will never have a heart attack despite an advertisment.

You can find a way to go to the airports and fly a plane before having a pilot license.

In SA are Vice City maps on the trash in Angel Pine.

I seriously never knew about the body armour and Micro SMG near CJ's house when I was younger. It was only when I played it on PS4 that it was something I discovered. It's really helpful in the beginning of the game when you don't have much to your name.

One thing I noticed is that ballas will gang up and started kicking your car if carrying out taxi missions but dont seem to at any other point

If a gang territory is attacked, it can get partially taken over and will have instead, a different shade of green and have less waves if you go back to reclaim it if iirc

In coop, certain cheats will apply to both characters while some wont (e.g weapon cheat works on both but I dont think health cheat does )

It took me a while to see how short CJ is, they say Ryder is midget, well CJ is shorter than him and most npcs. We can customize CJ to look cool and wealthy but sad nothing can be done about his height.....

If I'm not mistaken CJ is taller than Ryder in cutscenes but shorter in free roam , similar to how in V Lamar is taller than Franklin in cutscenes but around the same height in free roam

 

OT: Grove St graffiti appears on the walls of the Vinewood Cemetery at night. It isn't present during the daytime.

Some vehicle related ones

- On the subject of bicycles, taking one to the Pay N Spray will give you a message 'I dont do toys'

- San Andreas is the only 3D universe GTA to not feature the Idaho

- San Andreas is the only GTA to feature vehicles like the go-kart and Combine Harvester( and then there are more regular vehicles like Remington, Sunrise ,Broadway and some more I don't know that are only found in this game)

- You can obtain a unique coloured Pizzaboy in the mission Ice Cold Killa. If you destroy Jizzy B's car beforehand, he'll jack a unique blue green Pizzaboy which you can obtain by killing him in the mission (The special vehicle guide will probably have more things like this)

I didnt know unique stunts arent required to complete 100 % for a long time either. They are tedious and hard to find anyway. Saves a lot of time and lets us focus on more interesting stuffs like gang wars and all (you do not have to take over all territories tho, but that too is a great feature as taking over all means no more Ballas and Vagos).....

I think I found this video somewhere in here, but it's interesting to share it here nevertheless.

It never stops to make me laugh when patrol units try to avoid areas with large gang presence. Sometimes at a stop light if I'm hanging out with a large group of homies, police tend to avoid the group by crashing and pushing other vehicles out of the way almost as if they're saying I had enough of this sh*t I'm tired of dealing with these thugs, move out of my f*cking way, lol :lol:

 

Pedestrians also tend to avoid large group of gangs by simply walking away or turning back to where they were going while looking over their shoulder. The same happens while driving any vehicle with any homies inside. SA being a 2004 game really had some neat details for it's time.

If you start following any ped this will run to escape from CJ by having other people run or simply the ped will wait for you to attack. In something that amazed me a lot when I realized this and gives the game some realism

during the mission ''farewell my love'', if you hit the vehicle with claude and catalina in it, you can hear claude speak? i thought he was a mute.

Not choosing to speak, does not make a person unable  to speak.

Happened to me one time I was doing a quarry mission, can be annoying if they cause you to fail missions lol.

Was just doing the 'Big Smoke's cash' side mission and was surprised to see Big Smoke's patriot being driven by a GSF member. I thought only Smoke and Ryder had defected to CRASH and the Ballas' side while GSF were united under Sweet and CJ, but it seems a section of GSF chose to switch their loyalties to Smoke. I rarely do these side missions and iirc the story made no mention of other GSF defectors, so I just learnt about this and thought it was kinda interesting

his actually happens from time to time, specially in regions with mountains or hills. I tink it has to do with the fact the game sometimes spawns planes facing a mountain or a tall buiding, and the pilot doesn't have time to react. I've been struck by a plane during Madd Dogg's Rhymes, and been killed by one exploding while climbing Chilliad.

 

Some people think this is tied to the 'Luck' stat in the game, but that only affects gambling.

 

Thankfully this "feature" wasn't in GTA III post 9/11.

This video shows unused dialogue that CJ would have said while performing a stealth kill. Relevant dialogue from 1: 20 to 1: 40.

 

Would like someone to confirm this but speaking of stealth kills you cannot stealth kill the pool player ped.

Beware of the screenshot dump:

 

Spoiler

If you go to the location shown on the map, you will find a hole on the surface of the water:

 

4iO2Dqz.png

E8i6UuO.png

 

If CJ has full health, he can fall down the hole and survive:

 

xY5ZabN.png

 

From there, you will be on a state where the game thinks you're on land, but in reality you fell through the water, and can now explore the underwater parts of San Andreas on foot:

 

W6AwuLs.png

 

Another fun fact: vehicle cheats do work, which means you can also explore underwater in any vehicle you want:

 

FLNPo5X.png

 

Just be careful: things underwater don't render very quickly, which is problematic when it comes to rocks. Just don't fly too low, specially in rivers or in the San Fierro bay.

 

From there, you can explore some pretty interesting places:

 

ldEAvdR.png

IDfzvnk.png

ep19IN4.png

kCRLcLn.png

 

Fun fact: The San Fierro bay is so deep, if you try to get to the bottom of it, the game will think you fell through the map (which you kinda did) and will respawn you back on land.

 

4EuHWac.png

zNbbEwJ.png

 

Another thing: The deeper you go, the darker your screen gets. If you go low enough, you can get a pitch black game screen, except for the HUD:

 

JcxwlbK.png

 

If you want an interesting challenge, exploring those areas on a Monster is pretty fun, just beware of rocks. Also try not to touch the surface of the water again, as the game will put carl back on its swimming animations and destroy any vehicles you have.

 

Another thing you should watch out for: In some images near the edge of the map you can see a huge polygon with a weird low-res texture. That polygon is not solid, and you will fall into the void if you try to walk/drive on it. If you have an airplane or jetpack, you can use that to be able to fly under the map of San Andreas, just be careful not to go too deep, or the game will respawn CJ back on land.

@DOUGL4S1 What fond memories I had doing that while wanted by the police, lol. Forgot how fun that was :sigh: Might give it another go when I get the chance.

A nice find, my friend. How did you find this, by accident? 

 

Things that i didn't realize after i play the game the second time are:

 

- Mission N.O.E is really easy even if you fly above the height Toreno told you. If you time it right, you can do a trick from Flying School (Specifically before Barrel Roll, basically your plane is going upwards and back down by holding the up button) to avoid any incoming missiles. You can even shoot down the Hydra if you want. 

 

- If you use the JCNRUAD cheat or the Invincible Cars which allows you to have an All-Proof car and destroy other people's car by touching them, enter a vehicle, and then deactivate the cheat, you will have an All-Proof car without the destroy other people's car feature. Really useful if you want to have some fun getting chased by the police. Be wary that once you leave the car, the feature will be gone.

 

- Even if you're in a 100% save whcij gives you infinite health, if you fall down with a parachute and don't open it in the right time, you will die. 

 

- Big Smoke's mission sign is BS, also can be called bullsh*t. Hence why his missions are all trash. 

 

- Montgomery, i think, is a reference to a Rockstar's employee whose name also has Mongomery. His name can be seen on credits. 

 

I might found more. These are all i can provide now.
