About Me: [AE01] ============ I have been a GTA veteran since 1999 and have completed every GTA game to date. I have mastered and literally seen everything possible in GTA San Andreas clocking in hundreds of hours, still even. I also own a gaming site 'www.gtasamasters.com' which is again for GTA San Andreas. ================ 3. Introduction: [IN01] ================ If you have followed the GTA franchise you would know Liberty City is a city based on New York that first made an appearance back in 1997 in GTA1 and inimitably founded the renown GTA3 trilogy back in 2001 with GTA3 on the Playstation 2. Now 3 years have passed since then and the ultimate interval for the trilogy has been unconfined and in our beloved console systems once and for all, not just with a new sandbox called San Andreas, but Liberty City too, and this guide shall pertain relevant information regarding the Liberty City confined within the game Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas. ========================================== 4. About SALC (San Andreas' Liberty City): [AC01] ========================================== Firstly, not all of Liberty City is in the game, majority of Portland is the claimable Liberty City. It is still a comparatively large area considering such a small part of it was used in only one mission in which most of the time you were within an interior that was enclosed by brick walls. But many say the outer limits were used for "The Introduction" which was a 21 Minute short feature film that contained several scenes within Liberty City. The only comparative differences you could note is the fact snow has now inhabited the City. You first voyage to Liberty City in the mission "Saint Mark's Bistro". You take a Lear Jet (Shamal) from Las Venturas Airport and travel east for a few minutes and appear in the snowing Liberty City in order to do a hit on a Forelli family member. ========================= 5. Where is Liberty City? [W?C01] ========================= Theoretically, Liberty City is situated miles and miles straight east from San Andreas, but where it is truly positioned within the game is in the upper left (North West) of Los Santos stationed much higher than the prearranged flying limit in "Hell". ======================= 6. Exploration Methods: [ES01] ======================= So, you want to tour the early 90's version of Liberty City? Well we have approvingly designed 4 appropriate methods of transportation each accustom to your available divergence. Choose one which suites you best and follow the procedures carefully. Here is a map locating areas vital to travel back to Liberty City: www.gtasamasters.com/maps/LibertyGuideMap.jpg ----------------- a. Method 1: Hellway Difficulty: 6/10 Cheat Device Needed? Yes Description: This is perhaps one of the more difficult and longest routes to take, but with this method you have admission to Liberty City all the time, so in order for you to travel back after completing the game, Hellway is the only alternative. Procedure: First off enable the "Unlimited Height on Jetpack" code and enter the Ganton Gym and spawn a Jetpack inside and launch yourself up above the gym door and travel to the Warehouse in Black hell and land on the reflective ground and walk to the blip and enter. Once you are inside mark Liberty City on the map, preferably the small solid area and travel from the Warehouse interior hell to there. Congratulations you have now taken the Hellway, have fun exploring a good 70% portion of Portland. ------------------- b. Method 2: Taking MJ Difficulty: 3/10 Cheat Device Needed? No Description: If you don't have access to a Cheat Enhancer this is for you. This is a ridiculously easy method to explore Liberty City, but sadly only by foot. You are also limited to only the solid parts of the city, so get your camera packed and start touring! Procedure: In order to do this ridiculously easy method you will need to start the "Saint Mark's Bistro" mission. When you are up to the point needing to kill the Forelli member outside don't kill him, run down the steps and go into the small enclosed area behind the open wall on the back right of the yard and go to the left edge behind the tree and stand on the snow mound facing north on the light grey brick wall. Now activate the 'Mega Jump" cheat and jump over the wall. You will now be in an emaciated alleyway covered by snow. Now follow it turning right then right again until you are at yet another dead end and stop, these walls are not solid. Now face east on the left wall near the end of that alley and have a small run up and jump as you hit the wall. If successful you will land out on the road of the Bistro, to make it easier to know where to land do the "See through Walls" trick. Have fun walking around observing the city by foot, watch out for the unsolid areas and use the 'Spark Trick". --------------------------- c. Method 3: Grenade Launching Difficulty: 8/10 Cheat Device Needed? No Description: Another method for those without Cheat Enhancers. This is a very difficult method and involves plenty luck and ample patience. You launch yourself over a wall by a ricocheting grenade. Sound easy enough for you? Procedure: This method involves you to be in the "Saint Mark's Bistro" mission. Kill everyone besides the Forelli member outside and push the car away from him as he will try shooting you whilst the car is in the way and blow himself up therefore you will pass the mission, which isn't what you want to do. Now go to the back of the small enclosed area on your right as mentioned in "Method 2" and go to the highest snow mound facing North West between the light grey brick wall and the other wall. Now throw a grenade to the wall and jump to coincide with the explosion and you should be on the walls ledge. If you failed your first attempt you will definitely need to use a health cheat of some kind, and you are advised to bring some body armour too if you wish to not use cheats. Now do the same and get into the Alley as mentioned in "Method 2" and activate the Mega Jump cheat and follow the procedure as mentioned in 'Method 2". Remember the "Spark Trick" is your moral lead in exploring on foot. ------------------- d. Method 4: Jetmaxin' Difficulty: 0/10 Cheat Device Needed? Yes Description: This is the easiest method of them all but involves the use of a Cheat Enhancer. Procedure: Again, this method involves you to be in the "Saint Mark's Bistro" mission, but first enable the Low Gravity (Unlimited Height on Jetpack) code. When you are in Liberty City go out of the Bistro and into the courtyard where the Forelli member is and spawn a Jetpack, now just fly off and explore ALL of Liberty City. Easy! ==================== 7. Safe Travel Tips: [SS01] ==================== This section will contain core tricks and tips for when exploring Liberty City. If you have heard an odd trick in one of the methods, they will sure be listed in this section. Spark Trick: ------------ Shooting a solid object with any gun will ignite a spark, if however no spark entails the object is not solid, there for you will go/fall through it. Use this for assistance when exploring Liberty City by foot. See Through Walls: ------------------ Equip the Heat Seeking Rocket Launcher and go up close to the wall/object you wish to look through and aim with R1 then turn 180 degrees and let go. Now repeat 180 degrees back to the object you were facing previously and you should effectively be looking through it. Pack a Camera: --------------- It's always good to pack a camera with you for PROOF. Taking snapshots around the place will archive your journey and could be viewed when back home in San Andreas. Harp on to your friends! ======================= 8. Tourist Attractions: [TS01] ======================= This section is more a "Things to see" section which will entail several things you can see in Liberty City. Bistro Exterior: ---------------- If you walk up the steps of the Bistro and look at the windows, you can look through inside of the Bistro Kitchen and hear opera music. Portland Hospital: ------------------ Go to the same location of the hospital north east of Liberty City in GTA3 to see it looks the exact same. Not solid though. Hyman Stadium in Liberty City: ---------------------------------- Near Liberty City the Hyman Memorial Stadium from Vice City is floating around. When you are near you should hear some stadium music. It is the same arena model for Dirtring and Bloodring in Vice City. In the centre there is a ramp square, which is the only solid counterpart. ================== 9. Cheats & Codes: [CS01] ================== In order for you to travel back to Liberty City and explore when you wish, cheats and codes will need to be activated. Here they are as well as some others you may want to consider before venturing off for a more proficient and secure journey.

Frequently Asked Questions: [FQ01] =============================== Can you Spawn vehicles in Liberty City? --------------------------------------- No, it will spawn, but far down underneath Liberty City. Where can I get a Cheat Enhancer? --------------------------------- Depends, there are several types of Cheat Enhancers; Gameshark, Action Replay. Exploder etc. and each entail different versions and conversions for each code. They can be purchased at numerous gaming outlets and online retailers. Where can I get the latest codes? --------------------------------- If you have an Action Replay, locate your version on www.codejunkies.com and look for the desired code. Another good site which is a group of people translating unofficial codes for AR and all is www.thetpcc.com. What happens if I fall through the ground in Liberty City? ---------------------------------------------------------- You will fall for ages and ages and soon land, dependant though. Some people have landed in unburden water while some have landed at the Doherty Garage with the open garage to enter, not all the textures have loaded, so it will look very odd. To fix this partially enter an interior. What is "Hell"? --------------- There are several types of hell, and it's not unerringly hell either. It first got its forename back in GTA3 with "Blue Hell" that could be seen through walls or in glitched areas. It is really places which you aren't suppose to go to and in which visuals and objects aren't laden and files have been places around, like interiors. Hard to explain. Your map isn't precisely accurate! --------------------------------- Yes, I know. But at least it approximately locates the places, only the Gym is off register a little bit. So no more irritable questions about this, why not you make me a map then, huh. ===================== 11.
