Alright I've seen alot of people ask about the ghost town so i decided to take this topic and tell you what it is. (and people have been confused)

Ok you know the unfinished tunnel on Shoreside Vale. Well acutally there is two that have rocks blocking the way. Some say the tunnels go in a loop and connect to each other.but it was said that was supposed to lead to a new city called Carcer City when you beat it 100%. The idea of a new city after you beat 100% has been around for ages but has never been true. Where the name of the new town evolved was on a commercial in Gta 3 about a police man with creminal charges (gary shaffer) and he was in a near by city called Carcer City.

Anyhoo, well the ghost town is right over the hill/mountain over the two tunnels so people got mixed up and thought that was a town. But in fact it was the ghost town where rockstar built the opening scene. It was used for filming and no one would be able to find it so Rockstar stuck it out there. But we did. So the rumor is that the ghost town is Carcer City.

Further info on the ghost town is that it is completly hollow. You can fly through everything and as you fly with the dodo you can see the 'Bank', two securecars, an esperato, (i think it also has a banshee), and the alley that you run out of after you shoot the camera on the opening scene. This was all used in the opening scene. The esperato is a new color also.

Also on gtagayming that has a mod to build a bridge to the ghost town. It makes everything solid also but I'm not sure you can drive any of the cars. Other than that and flying the dodo or the tank you cant get there.

******UPDATE****** Carser City is also the location for the game Manhunt. Just think of it as Rockstar's little universe.

FAQ: by AKT & Loly Pop

Alright since you little fucktards are idiots, AKT & I have answered some Q's...

I suck at flying the Dodo. Is there another way I can get there?
- Get a Tank (((( Circle(6), R1, L2, L1, Triangle, Circle, Triangle ))))
- Put on the Dodo Cheat (((( Right, Circle, R1, L2, Down, L1, R1 ))))
- Get to the Airport. On the runway facing away from the city, turn the turret around.
- Start shooting until it goes off the ground. You can fly really well with the tank.
- It is hard to steer. Make soft but quick motions to turn.
- Follow the path given on the map below.

Do you have to have 100% to enter the ghost town?
No you do NOT have to have 100%. You need to access the third island...this can be done many ways.
- Complete it normally.
- Use a tank to fly there.
- Fly across both bridges using the perfect handling cheat and the dodo cheat.

When can I see it?
Ghost Town is ALWAYS there.

Can I go throught those to solid tunnels to get there?
The tunnels NEVER open so, NO! But...if you hit them right with a plane, you may go through...you can see a brown connect tunnel through em like a glitch...but they never open.

Can you walk in the ghost town?
The only bit that is solid in Ghost town is a dustbin somewhere. Apart from that one dustbin, you CAN'T stand in Ghost Town. It is a film area and since Rockstar didn't think you would be there, why waste disk space to make it solid?

Is there a mod to see it easier or to make the Ghost Town solid?
You CAN get mods for the PC to get there (Google it).
This is the mod for the Ghost Town.
It makes a bridge to it and alot of the Ghost Town is solid. Cheers!

What about for ps2?
You CAN'T get mods for the PS2 easily (without certain equipment) to get there.

PC Modders - make backups first. Mods have a habit of screwing up your game and they can clash with each other if you're not careful.


Thanks to Nanook for this bit of info on the Ghost Town

- The mod from gtagayming for a bridge does work, though not everything is made solid.
- There are some places you can fall through (trial and error if you want to drive around), solid areas include the area AROUND the bank (you can not enter it).
- The cars (2 Securicars and Esparanto) are NOT driveable, though sometimes they are solid with the mod.
- To see the ghost town climb the mountain near the observatory, get a sniper rifle and turn to face the mountain (if you are close enough) then you'll see ghost town through the mountain (no mod needed for this)

Sniper Rifle Trick to see the Ghost Town

Flying the Dodo
-Take off using the same runway as the jets that are taking off and landing.
-Start at the end of the runway where the Dodo is found in the hanger.
-Line up with the middle line on the runway. Push the X button and hold the left stick forward. Look at the nose of the plane, and when you start to see sparks, let the stick return the neutral position. You should lift off of the ground.
-Slightly tap the left stick forward to level out the plane. You will need to do this constantly during flight. If the nose gets too high, you will stall. An easy way to keep it level is when you see red above the wings, tap the stick forward. You shouldn't need to pull the stick back (only for advanced flying.)
-Don't panic! The plane will look like it is going to come down but it
won't, as long as you keep the plane level.
-To turn, slightly tap the left stick to the left or right, then slightly tap it the other direction again to straighten the plane out.

Do not turn sharply...tap tap tap the left stick. I suggest turning to
the right and flying over the water to get the hang of the plane. Stay
somewhat close the coastline until you get used to flying and watch out
for the unique jumps. Don't fly too far out to sea because the game
will lock up or your plane will disappear from the screen or both.

*NOTE*: You do not have to hold the X button during flight. I believe
holding it will slightly increase your air speed. You will need to
release it during certain landings.

Some cheats you may need while reaching the Ghost Town.
