I Don't get it why Pastor Richards has nothing to do with the Storyline of Vice City, No Missions, No Backatory in VCS. I Want to Believe his mission would be very polemic giving, a bad image to religious themes.

 

I know his voice actor passed away during game production, but he still be a mysterious character for me. I Imagine giving mission just like "Father" Ned in LCS.

From what could remember. He had some missions in the beta. I think there was one where you had do dirt on a rival funeral home. Also take candy to him for some fun time, it was a few missions. Can’t remember but there are a few videos out there. Would have doing missions for him. Seeing how corrupt the pastor is.

Nope, he's still alive and kicking, even if he's not doing much anymore

I'm kinda sure he was supposed to be one of the mission bosses in the cut 3rd island (Gator Keys), for that reason, he was just... there, they didn't know what to do with him.

The supposed mission regarding Candy Suxx is just a myth, ignore it my friend! 😊

I suppose Pastor Richards was meant to give missions to Tommy but Rockstar scrapped the idea away given the way the game was rushed.

 

At least he's a very good funny illustration of the way the religions are oftenly used to manipulate and despoil people.

Despite being almost completely absent from the storyline, he appears on the 'Morality' segment of the Pressing Issues programme on VCPR and also has a commercial in which he begs people to donate for his 'project'. It's interesting how they managed to record that, but didn't record a single line for the storyline.

From reading the game manual, it looked like he was to have a bigger part in the game than was finally realised, his appearance in VCPR is pretty funny though.

I wouldn't be surprised if the game manuals/maps are printed by a third party with information from R*. You see it all the time with toy lines for films, though when things change, the third party companies are often the last to find out or don't find out at all. 

In this case, R* probably just didn't inform the publishers of the manual to remove the parts on Pastor Richards because of changes they made to the game, as that may have necessitated a push back on the release date etc.

You can still hear him on VCPR "talking" with Morris Chavez(he is pointing a gun at Morris)discussing all sorts of things.I guess that's what is left of him, from doing missions for him to just listen to him on the radio.

I assumed the case with Pastor Richards is the same as the LOD tower that you can see on the Vice Beach side but not once you transition to the other side.

i.e. A casualty of a very short development cycle.
