u wot m8 They're not talking about Saints. Row. IV. And every magazine is comparing Saints Row to Grand Theft Auto because of the first two installments. Saints Row: The Third is nothing like GTA. It's not a crime-drama game like GTA. It's a story about celebrities who fight prostitutes, emos, Mexican wrestlers (like wtf) and sci-fi anti-"gang" organization with a giant Star Wars looking ship floating above the city. This doesn't sound like a GTA Clone, huh? TheAnonim13 (talk) 21:45, March 2, 2015 (UTC)
The Turismo, Cheetah and Stinger were always featured in the Grotti article so I thought they were in fact made by Grotti both in the 3D and HD Universes, the pictures looks like a billboard or propaganda so it reinforced me to think this way, but you just told me now, so I will remove the Turismo, Cheetah and Stinger as 3D Universe vehicles made by Grotti.

Heists Update vehicles
C'mon sir, the only part of the update only available for GTA Online are the heists themselves, the vehicles are impossible not to be in the story mode, I can't show you a proof that they are in the story mode, but so are all the other updates, tell me, have you ever seen any update showing Michael, Trevor or Franklin on them? I'll be clear:
- Beach Bum pack: Show all vehicles, weapons and clothes for GTA Online
- Business update: Show all vehicles and weapons available for GTA Online
- I'm not a hipster update: Show all vehicles and clothes available for GTA Online
- San Andreas Flight School: They didn't even mention the story mode, they only announced the flight school for GTA Online
- Festive Surprise: They mentioned snow and snowballs for GTA Online
It's not speculation sir, it's because it doesn't make sense to develop DLC vehicles only for GTA Online, the Khamelion and Stinger GT were always in the game files, no need to get angry ;) (talk/stalk/blog) 14:31, March 6, 2015 (UTC) it's just sarcasm, okay?
Hey Smurfynz !
The thermite bomb is confirmed by one of R*/IGN screenshots
Take a look at his hand, It's the thermite bomb.
Also this is The Pacific Standard Job where you need 4 Principe Lectro's.
The gear for this heist involves the thermite bomb but it doesn't matters as this is leaked information.
You got this R*/IGN screenshot as proof.

RE: DLC Size
That's good. I don't have a mic on my Xbox One, nor do I have any "regular" friends on it so it's good that the size difference is just a graphical thing.

Hey Sean, they say it's speculation to assume that the Savage is the Hind, but I have a good suggestion, why don't we check the game files as soon as the DLC is released? So it would be no longer a speculation/assumption, this can be very useful, as they just knew that the Roosevelt is called "B-Type" in the game files. (talk/stalk/blog) 13:34, March 9, 2015 (UTC)

DomIsLive did The Prison Break video and the Casco is shown as belonging to Maxim Rashkovsky. It is the fourth setup mission and links to the inmate schedule mission. It is stolen by a gang of car thieves and it needs to be retrieved. Leo68 (talk) 09:07, March 10, 2015 (UTC)
The video was a live feed it was at 1.54.20 when they started set ups for the prison break mission. In it the Heist Planner mentions that Rashkovsky's car, a Casco, has to be retrieved after being stolen. It seemed legit enough, despite his history. Leo68 (talk) 09:18, March 10, 2015 (UTC)
Yeah, the standard patch is updating on my Xbox 360 as we speak. I woke up early for it, and even then I might not get to play it! But yeah, I figured there would be balaclavas, Guy Fawkes-esque masks, joker masks and a TON of other ones introduced in the Heists Update so I was doing consistently more work on that page over the past couple of weeks. I've edited a couple of the new pages and added and switched around some stuff on the Casco page. Haven't even got around to reading the Rockstar article or watch DomisLive's customary 100+ videos he has set up for new updates!

- But it doesn't appear in your game too? If not, it's a leak, but it's coincidential, as I have seen a picture of a military patriot in the game, and no, it's not like the warstock picture, it's a 4-door SUT version of the Patriot with larger tires. This leads me to think that the next update is coming sooner than we think. (talk/stalk/blog) 19:54, March 10, 2015 (UTC)
Hey Smurfynz. I noticed you removed the trivia I added with the Guardian resembling Saints Row's Compensator. This is not irrelevant trivia, as in many cases Saints Row's and GTA's vehicles resemble one another or share the same name. This is stated on several pages including the Mule, Phoenix and Stallion as well as stated on the Saints Row Wiki itself. Both the Guardian and Compensator are based on the same truck. There's no reason why a Saints Row comparison should be removed. Is it okay if I add it back? Thanks in advance. () 20:23, March 10, 2015 (UTC)Smashbro8
Not really a Toyota Hilux, but many games have featured trucks with mounted guns. So I understand your point. However, the Ford F650 (which the Guardian and Compensator are based on) has only been featured in GTA and Saints Row if I'm correct. It's a very rare vehicle to find in gaming. () 20:38, March 10, 2015 (UTC)Smashbro8
One Last Thing...
Hey Smurf. One last thing. I think since the Heists Update vehicles are exclusive to GTA Online, all picture captions saying "in GTA V" should be changed to "in GTA Online" and the "Vehicles in GTA V" category should be removed from their pages. Is this a good idea? () 22:32, March 10, 2015 (UTC)Smashbro8
It's done. Thanks a lot! Also, you didn't answer me yesterday. I was suggesting to remove the Vehicles in GTA V category from the Heists Update vehicles. Is that a good idea? () 16:33, March 11, 2015 (UTC)Smashbro8
If a user doesn't have the ability to fill out a section, why even create it in the first place? If it's just going to be empty, why not remove it until someone can correctly fill it out? Blank sections just look lazy. Conqueror of all Zombies (talk) 04:16, March 11, 2015 (UTC)
I removed the link what, twice? That's not an edit war. And why don't you make the page first and then add the link? It's the same amount of editing either way and looks much cleaner. Conqueror of all Zombies (talk) 04:45, March 11, 2015 (UTC)
Or you could simply go to the main page, enter the title of the article into the the blank space under the "Helping Out" section and click the button that says "Create a new article". It's just a few clicks more and doesn't create an ugly red link on page that remains there until you finish the article. Conqueror of all Zombies (talk) 05:28, March 11, 2015 (UTC)
Care to explain how it's "more efficent"? It's the same number of edits either way, and one way takes only one to two more clicks. And while yes, red links can show that a page is needed, it doesn't change the fact that they look sloppy and lazy. Conqueror of all Zombies (talk) 05:40, March 11, 2015 (UTC)

If both of them got the position we'd be a patroller up. Yes Doc said he'd apply but we don't know when. Monk put in a request that is doing well so WildBrick may have to wait for the next vacant position, but that shouldn't be too long. Leo68 (talk) 23:25, March 12, 2015 (UTC)
There's always second chances. I told WildBrick he'd be able to apply when Doc went for admin, and he told me he's applying either Friday or at the weekend. As it stands, your positon is Monk's. Doc's position is almost certainly WildBrick's, but he has to wait a few days. Given that your request went through in a few hours, one delay could mean we'd have 9 patrollers (11 if you include Istalo and Tony). It's not like WildBrick would be waiting a few months for a position. The administrator election was different. If several patrollers applied for the empty position we have now then it would require an election but as it stands only one user wants, and that leaves a position for WildBrick. I get what you're saying, he is more experienced but Monk went first and WildBrick hasn't even applied. He'll probably apply around the same time as Doc, a bit like how I applied for Tom's position when he went for Ilan's. Leo68 (talk) 01:49, March 13, 2015 (UTC)
What a shame. That chart seemed helpful. Anyway, I will keep updating all heists pages as GTA Series keep releasing videos. I like to edit with their videos, so I can check for any information without needing to constantly log in GTA Online. Just remember that thanks to my grammar, you should keep an eye on my edits to do some cleanups.

Nah, its all jpg, it always worked. I think it might have something to do with the file size. I tried to upload three different pics yesterday, all jpg, and the smaller one was the only one that was uploaded without any problem. I'm not home right now, maybe it has something to do with the internet here, since I never had this kind of problem with my own computer. Tomorrow I will be back home and will try again.

I bet you quickly noticed that John died in 1911 :p It would make more sense if Jack Marston was the parent character model, as Jack looks strikingly similar to John, however, Jack would be still too old to be a father in 1967 at his 63 years old.
I added these images because there weren't any yet that were of good enough quality or had no watermarks. It's better to have images from last gen than nothing from current gen.
As for the Prison Bus, it's the exact same bus that was in GTA V on September 17, 2013. I think we should include only newly added vehicles in the table and already existing vehicles in text below. 21:25, March 16, 2015 (UTC)

Wow, really? Rockstar straight up removed content from the standard version? Damn. I'm not that concerned, since I played the X360 version and I will still receive this content once I upgrade to the current-gen, but boy, dos this show how unpredictable Rockstar can be sometimes. DLVIIIL Talk 03:49, March 17, 2015 (UTC)
- Since January? Well, the only update that we got between the curent-gen launch and the Heists Update, was the Festive Surprise update. If you can confirm that the vehicles were in the game when he was launched, then they were probably removed in the Festive update. Curious how Rockstar didn't mention anything about this, even with so many people noticing the vehicles sudden disappearance. Makes me question if this vehicles were even suppose to be in the standard version to begin with. DLVIIIL Talk 04:02, March 17, 2015 (UTC)
- In this case, can we change the chart in this page and say that this vehicles were all supose to be exclusive for returning players from the beginning? I guess its better than say that they were turned exclusive only with the Heists Update, specially with you saying that players were already reporting the disappearance of this vehicles before the Heists Update was released. DLVIIIL Talk 05:20, March 17, 2015 (UTC)
RE: Missions infobox template
- "Can you give me some input?"
Well, I stole the idea off Saints Row Wiki. I wanted to use this to make the walkthrough point out what objective goes where or just to describe an objective instead of adding it to the list. I made the infobox and I wanted to use the Wikia default bullet points for that. The problem was that that the very first one would not appear like it should - it just gave the "*" instead of the bullet point - so I tried different methods. I spent an hour or two trying to make the infobox read the bullet point like it should, I even looked at other infoboxes on other wikis to fix the problem. Had no success with it. So then I reminded myself that one of the navboxes around here used HTML tag for bullet points so I used it and it worked.
I made the bullet point template to make things easier and proceeded with the changes. I changed the infobox to include "Mission Objectives", beacuse it would be better to note them in the infobox instead of the actual page, IMO. Then I started extracting the HUD colors, changing the page layout, adding anchors, etc. I did it for only three missions for now.
- "Were you happy with the design outcome?"
Yes. It's nicer to note it with a bullet point to clearly show it's separated. Some missions have an insane list of rewards that it's a bit hard to read anything when it's all in one block of text.
As for the missions objectives, depends. It actually looks nice and bit "clean", IMO. There is a huge problem with writing it though. It's Your Call isn't that bad, but Three's a Crowd looks like a complete joke. Mission objective. One line of descritpion. Mission objective. One line of description. and so on. Overall I like how it looks but there needs to be some way to make it look less clustered because the plot/walkthrough should take up most space, not the objectives. I was actually thinking of reverting these but decided to come up with another idea (but I never really did) so I didn't do it.
I might actually make up a few designs for mission objectives if something is gonna be done about this.
- "Did you intend for them to be used?"
Yes. As I just wrote, it's a bit hard to read anything when the list is in one block of text so separating them with bullet points would be a better choice. Noone used them though and even I forgot about it after I got lazy and went away.
- "I also notice the field only displays if there is a BP template used. A single entry with no bullet point is ignored."
Could you explain this more?
- EDIT: I've redone the infobox mission to "fix" that "it's a bit hard to read anything when the list is in one block of text". Rewards, Mission Fails and Mission Objectives are fully on their own so there is more space to not only add bullet pointed lists but also make the list a bit more readable. See The Pacific Standard Job is you want to see what I mean and how it looks like now. 13:02, March 17, 2015 (UTC)
- Something like this? -->
- Collapsible mission objectives for each crew type. Doesn't take any space when it's collapsed.
- Since it's fixed I'll check it some other time. Probably just a random error happened.
I'm sorry for the changes I made to the missions in GTA III, which, also in my opinion, made the infoboxes look terrible, and I understand your request yesterday. The above idea, proposed by WildBrick142, is actually a better one. Can you reply to me if I need to add the "todo" section for other missions in the above style.
Thank you. MarcusCheeKJ 05:27, March 18, 2015 (UTC)

GTA Today and Time To Get Away
Nether of them even exists despite being featured from previous updates. And even so, Simeon and Martin will less likely give out two rarest missions ever, and there's like .5% chance of being shown. Its highly luck-determined, and unless you have both missions, lucky you then. Nearly everyone doesn't have both missions in GTA Online due to these two being quite non-existent at all. 00:26, March 18, 2015 (UTC)
- Yeah. Again, its widely luck-based. And today I just got a really lucky Time to Get Away mission just now. It won't be necessary, but for Heists? I'll definitely need help if you wish, though my time is rather limited due to having to go to sleep early in two hours for work training tomorrow. Also, my edits feel quite rusty, it seems. :/ 00:44, March 18, 2015 (UTC)

Succeeded by- High Life

Anyway to answer your question it appears in the 'Series A - Bikers' setup, 'Series A Foudning' and can be set as team respawn vehicles in Capture modes, however it is not avialbe for purchase mainly because the vehicle is unique to the Lost Motorcycle Club and the fact that its interieror has no textures. I think I will go ahead and add that information to the page right now. (Rentedhitmanben (talk) 16:09, March 19, 2015 (UTC))
Hey Smurf. Do you take pictures of military soldiers? We need a good image of GTA V's soldiers to replace the main image on the Military page.

Hey this is Christopher2142, on the Watch Dogs Wiki it is mentioned that a car called the Sonarus LX has an uncanny reresemblance to the design of the Buffalo since both vehicles are based on the Dodge Charger.

I think given that RP shoots up at lower ranks, by the time you get to Series A Funding you'd have reached rank 13 already. Also, Aminsino applied for Patroller.

The car resembles the Pursuit Special more than cars from Death Race (2008), and the cars in said movie that resemble the Pursuit Special are most likely a reference to the Mad Max movies. And "nearly indestructible" means that it is extremely difficult, but not impossible, to destroy. Besides, if that information is really needed in the article, it should be place in the main body of the article and not in the trivia section, due to it being semi-important information.

RE: Vehicles Table
My table is vehicles.meta related - the important info like what handling, game name, manufacturer, etc. a vehicle model uses. I might do handling some other time but I honestly am too lazy to add about 100 sections for 300 handling lines into a table. The spreadsheet seems to be unavailable for public access, by the way. 20:00, March 23, 2015 (UTC)
Hi Smurfy, just wanted to inform you on a large project.
Remember when there was a large discussion/argument on the Voodoo page about it being a Lowrider, but being categorized as a Muscle Car in GTA V? You said in the comments that we can add the category of Lowrider, but we MUST add the category of Muscle, as is classed as that in-game.
I took a look at the vehicle categories, and, to be honest, they are a mess. We have some unused categories, and several duplicate categories. I decided on this:
We should have categories named after what they are in GTA V Vehicle classes, eg: Sports Cars, Muscle, Commercial, Military, Helicopter, etc. We put all vehicles that are classed as Sports Cars in this category. Only GTA V Sport Cars should appear in this category.
We can make a category that isn't named after a GTA V Vehicle Class, eg: 2 - Door Coupes and Sedans, 2 - Door Sports Cars. Vehicles that are described as these appear in here, both GTA V and all other GTA games.
We delete nonsense categories, such as "Small Cars" "Big Cars" "Long Cars", etc. And we delete duplicated pages.
I'm currently using some pre-made categories and using them as GTA V Vehicle Class Categories, and then making other similar categories for the rest of the sports cars that aren't in a vehicle class.
Ah, I'm glad you came up to that decision, as that would mean i have to transfer tonnes of vehicles to different categories. I will get started on deleting and making new categories tomorrow if you give me the go-ahead.
So, overview, we delete observant or obvious categories, like 2 - Door Sports Cars, Classic Cars and Lowriders, etc, and just make GTA V Categories to define vehicles? Surely, that is contradicting what you said about the GTA V Wiki :p. (talk) | (stalk) 21:25, March 24, 2015 (UTC)
Ahh, well, that's what i am doing basically, I'm just calling them after their GTA V class names, simply like Muscle Cars, Sedans, Commercial,etc. I could just finish my transferal and then make them as you said, calling them Muscle Vehicle Class, Sedan Vehicle Class, etc. Then delete the old ones (above mentioned). Do you think that is alright? (talk) | (stalk) 21:50, March 24, 2015 (UTC)
May I ask why you decided to revert my edit? The Picador holds no similarities to the Holden Kingswood Utility, and the rear fascia is incredibly similar to the 1972 El Camino. It is also entirely irrelevant to mention the history of Holden, alongside some off topic mention of how it looks like some other car from the GTA universe.

I was wondering if there should be a dispatcher page on this wiki. You know that person who reports what the person is wanted for like in GTA V with "we have reports of of 996". It's just an idea I have can you let me know if it can be added thanks. Aminsino (talk) 03:42, March 25, 2015 (UTC)aminsino
Note to self before ZZZZs:
Hey Sean, since I can't download the heists update nor play GTA Online on the PS4, could you take some FPS pictures of the Flare Gun? (i.e. holding, aiming, down the sights and reloading) (talk/stalk/blog) 16:02, March 25, 2015 (UTC)
Heist Vehicle Infobox Images
Hey Smurfynz. I noticed over the past two weeks the Heists Update has been out, lots of users have been fighting over images in the infobox. I understand you also would like the enhanced version images in the infobox, but I think those should be the in the gallery at least. WildBrick added very good images for the vehicles' infoboxes and to me there is no need to rush and change them. I think we should come to an agreement on the images of those vehicles.

Hey I found another page about the same Retro City page you deleted. It should also be deleted. Link->http://gta.wikia.com/Grand_Theftendo —Preceding unsigned comment added by Myth hunter (talk • contribs) 20:33, 25 March 2015 (UTC) Please remember to sign your talk page messages with ~~~~.
Just to keep you informed, i have removed useless categories (such as 2-Door Coupes, 2-Door Sedans and Coupes, 4-Door Sedans and Coupes, etc), and replaced them with simple categories (such as Sedans, Sports Cars, Muscle Cars), keeping it simple is the best option. I have made only one GTA V Vehicle Class-based category so far, that is Category:Sedans Vehicle Class, as it is a long progress of moving vehicles from Category:4-Door Sedans to Category:Sedans.
Note that Category:Sedans is for all games, whereas Category:Sedans Vehicle Class is for GTA V Specifically.
Hooefully it shouldn't take that long to convert vehicles to new categories now, as the major ones where Category:4-Door Sedans and Category:2-Door Sedans causing the problem. Besides, tonnes of vehicles in the Category:2-Door Coupes and Sedans where wrong, so it was sorth the check. (talk) | (stalk) 21:04, March 25, 2015 (UTC)
- Pretty neat. I'm glad that you choose to show me how to do it myself instead of just doing it yourself. Guess I learned something new today because of this. - DLVIIIL Talk 06:46, March 26, 2015 (UTC)
Re: Warts and All
Thanks for getting in touch. The YouTube channel used to publish the documented video was previously flagged for multiple violations for leaked content relating to one of our titles. As the article contained links to this channel, it was removed for inappropriate content.
Whilst we do not discourage healthy factual documentation of these harmless glitches, sometimes we may remove it depending on the external source provided. The glitch stated was indeed fixed in the 1.16 patch.
If the external source is legitimate and does not have past records of infringement, we will not remove it from the article.

GTA IV mission-path
Hey Smur. Looking back at some of the old staff conversations, I remembered this little gen right here! Pretty cool uh? Its an complete mission patch of all GTA IV missions, complete with hyperlinks for each mission. I always liked this, but Tom did not let the creator of the patch use it because it "doesn't fit the style of the Wiki".
Now that we got a hole bunch of new people in the staff, do you think that we could find a way of using the patch? Its such a great work, and its a shame that its just there in the talk page. What do you think? - DLVIIIL Talk 00:30, March 28, 2015 (UTC)
- I guess you have a point. Its just so sad to see how that user put so much effort into creating that, only for it to ended up in the talk page. Thanks for the attention anyway. - DLVIIIL Talk 03:37, March 28, 2015 (UTC)
Pages "Under Construction"
Hi there. I had recently dicovered that this page, which is "Under Construction", has missing imformation. Can I edit this page? What is a page "under construction"? Is one of the staff in this wiki already working on this page? Please reply me as soon as possible. Thank you. MarcusCheeKJ (talk) 10:58, March 28, 2015 (UTC)
- Do I need to remove the "Under Construction" template after editing the page? Is it automatically removed? MarcusCheeKJ (talk) 11:31, March 28, 2015 (UTC)
I had noticed that transcript had been added by WildBrick142 and LS11sVaultBoy in some mission pages. The transcript looks okay. Is transcript important in showing imformation? Must the transcript be shown in another page (Mission name/Transcript) or shown in the mission page itself? Can I help them?
RE: Shooting Ranges
I just made a disambiglink as opposed to making a disambiguation for just two pages. You can edit on there without conflicts because I've finished editing (just adding categories first). Leo68 (talk) 05:05, March 29, 2015 (UTC)
Song release date
Hi Sean. With regards to the year a song was released, I always thought that an album-song was listed by the year of the album, whilst a single was listed by the year of the single release. On Radio Mirror Park for example, Dan Croll's "From Nowhere" was released in 2012 yet the album it was on wasn't released until 2014. SJWalker (talk) 10:39, March 29, 2015 (UTC)
Stevie Nicks' website lists it as 1985, so that's good enough for me. Thanks for the clarification. On that note, and apologies if it appears pedantic, but which territory do we go by when it comes to the song years? For example, America's "A Horse with No Name" was released in the UK in 1971 and the US in 1972. The K-DST pages lists it as 1972 but I don't want to make a change-for-change's-sake edit if either one is acceptable. SJWalker (talk) 11:01, March 29, 2015 (UTC)
I do a weekly music quiz too, and we have a book that we go by for song years, but the years the books lists only covers the week the song first entered the chart, not when it was released. So for example, if one song was released late in one year but didn't chart until the following year, which one would you go by? SJWalker (talk) 11:04, March 29, 2015 (UTC)
I think in future, whenever anyone lists a year beside a song, the territory should be checked first (either on the artist's site or discogs.com). Personally, I think first of the UK and US releases should be used, as they are the two countries where the games are developed and set. SJWalker (talk) 11:17, March 29, 2015 (UTC)
What our quizzers do is play X number of songs and ask for the year the song was first released as a single, so for example if a song was released as a single in 1982 but didn't chart and was re-released and charted in 1985 then 1982 would be accepted, as 1982 was the year of its original release. Likewise with number 1s, as Steve Miller Band's "The Joker" was released in 1973 but didn't reach number 1 in the UK until 1990, so it would be classed as a 1973 song.

On some people's profiles it shows pins that say for example: this user is a proud owner of ps3., Is that a reward or can they create them themselves. If they can create those pins themselves can you tell me how to do it if you know how to? —Preceding unsigned comment added by Aminsino (talk • contribs) 00:51, 30 March 2015 (UTC) Please remember to sign your talk page messages with ~~~~.
I closed it as a 'bureaucratic' decision. I know it seems like an unfair protection but I've locked it until the next staff opening is available. It has been done in the past according to the protection log. Leo68 (talk) 03:31, March 30, 2015 (UTC)
Order of Missions
I was wondering if I can change the order of missions listed in a more logical way, as sometimes the order missions listed is not so logical.
What about these four missions in this page? The four missions are listed in the 'Algonquin-Alderney Missions' catagory, but in fact they are located in Broker. It is a better way to list the missions down by characters, not the location of the mission, like in this page. What do you think? Please reply me as soon as possible. Thank you.

Calm down man. I did not write my opinion directed towards you. There's several other contributors who've uploaded poor enhanced version images. I personally think your photos are good. I never complained about any of your photos. The Savage infobox one could be better but it was good as I didn't like WildBrick's one either (it was too close up). My apologies if you felt it was to insult you. () 00:18, March 31, 2015 (UTC)Smashbro8
