Sometimes there is the VCN Mavrick on the Helipad. The building on the right has a hallow wall so you can go through it. The hallow part is a unrealistic looking window on the left of it. Run from one side of the heliport to the other and then jump into the hallow window. There you will see the Easter Egg with a sign on it that says Happy Easter. GTA: Vice City Secrets Change vehicle stats In the GTA-Vice City Directory, there should be a subdirectory called data. In this folder you'll find a file called "Handling.cfg". Change the File name to "Handling.txt" and open it. Here you can change the weight of the car, it's crash damage multiplier, speed, Acceleration and others. The file itself gives good pointers towards which values should be changed, and you should backup any files you intend to edit. GTA: Vice City Glitches Get Hookers in the Australian Version Australian Hookers will simply not get in your car, however if you drive next to a hooker and use the ''pedestrians get in car'' cheat 'HOPINGIRL' the hooker /will/ get into the car, and when you go to a secluded place the car starts rocking and increases your health to up to 25 HP more. Quick Reload When you are using a weapon and finish off a clip, quickly scroll the mouse wheel up, then quickly back down to the weapon you were using. The weapon should already be reloaded. This makes it easier when in a gang battle. Put two Vehicles in Your Garage One of the Two vehicles MUST be a Motorcycle. Get a Motorcycle and park it half way into the entrance (preferably of to the side). Get another Motorcycle or a car nearby and drive it into the garage. Hop on the Motorcycle thats parked halfway and drive that in too. Now you have 2 Vehicles in your garage! All Buildings and Terrain Disappear- Find Packages with ease! Take a bike (PCJ works well) and ride it as fast as you can into the Pole Position Strip Club entrance way, but before you get there hop off the bike and let it slide all the way to the end. Then enter the Pole Position and you should be standing on or next to your bike. If it is far enough down the hall you can get on it without having to exit the building. Once on the bike and having exited the building you can go anywhere in the game without the distracting buildings and terrain showing up; they are all invisible.
