I dont like the swimming feature in VCS, because once I was doing stunts in my car, and I fell in the water, there was no way of getting on a dry land. I saw a boat, and I thought I will just get on that, but just for few seconds I died. If they wanted to put this feature in GTA VCS, they should had made it more reliable like SA.

What was the side mission you had to do in order to get infinite stamina in water? Just do that mission and then if you fall in the water,you can keep searching for a boat or something to climb on to.

Ermm...

That one was Beach Patrol. Though, even with it, it was hard to find some of those added ledges to walk onto for getting back on land.

if you want to get to the other islands without doing missions, download a save file (psp). sure it defeats the purpose of the game, but i was pissed off enough about not being able to swim to the other islands to do it. i got my save file from psp hacks, 100% complete within 100 days, no cheats used.

I don't get why R* didn't make swimming like in SA...

Part of keeping you contained early in the game, you had to build swimming skill & you couldn't do that until the map
opened. VCS was based on VC & R* probably re-used a lot of resources, including the main script. SA style would have
been a major re-write (don't forget the automatic 4 * warrant in SA), whereas this way was more efficient & required less
work. Again, speculation.

If you love something, set it free. If it comes back, it's meant to be.

If not, point & laugh when it flies into a woodchipper.

Rockstar Games could be trying out something new. For instance, sometimes trying out something new could be possibly for research. So they could possibly implement the feature in upcoming GTA Games. The San Andreas Swimming feature was actually good, but it'd be more challenging seeing something like what they implemented in Vice City Stories since for one, it's challenging, second would be that you can't stay in the water for that long, so placing a limit meter seemed fair if you ask me. Plus, it's good that they have implemented it since it's something we all could get use to.

They could include this in GTA IV and that would obviously be something completely new, not copying the San Andreas swimming feature.

Or they could just have an open map from the beginning. Personal preference.

At least you could swim. That was the important thing. If there was no swimming, there'd be even more complaining.

I'd hardly call your post spam, it's related to the topic'

Swimming = good.

In real life I might not win Olympic medals, but I'm a decent swimmer. I think I should be able to swim in games as well.

It annoys me that Claude, Tommy & Toni can't learn to swim.

Toni`s momma was too disgraced of him to take him to to swimming lessons.lol
Tommy was probably selling drugs and shit to even care about learning how to swim.
Claude,I bet when the guy asked for his name,he didn`t say nothing.
