Ok so I have a couple of questions, they really aren't necessary but I'm just curious. When you develop a business, Prostitution, Protection, or whatever..Can a business be more than 1 type? If so, does it make it look any different? And also, if you have a couple of protection racket businesses in the high roller stage, do they look the same or is each site unique?

Unfortunately all the buildings that are the same business look the same, unless they are different sizes, ie small medium and large.

You can't have one building doing 2 different business's, if thats what you mean, although it would have been nice idea.

Hope this helps.

Yeah, get alot of sub machine guns/ammo and shoot the rival boats. Plus it helps if you get used to the PSP's Analog stick for turning in the boat.

I have the PS2 version, so getting the packages is SUPER easy. Its as if the other boats aren't there. Its the trip back that always gets me, and no matter where I build the shop, its always miles from the pier.

Since we're on the topic, how do you unlock smuggling and the other 2 business types? I only have Prostitution, Protection, and Loan Sharking

A lot of people seem to have different ideas about that. Some people say its after the Lance Mission called Audition. I got them after sacking a few sites on the second island. I got Smuggling first, then Robbery and last, Drugs.

Im not 100% sure about this, but I think its when you unlock the second island. You must attack a business of Robbery/Drugs/Smuggling type to unlock the ability to be able to select that as a business type.

Yep.

As for tips on smuggling. Use the business closest to the docks (The one with a dirt driveway and right by the bridge)
and remember that the Pay & Spray is right up the street. Just take the truck and slowly go up on the curb to your left and follow that road to the left and there is the Pay & Spray. You should have plenty of time to go right up the road to your business.

And location depends on how much money that specific besiness will earn. Smuggling near the water, loan shark in Little havana, prostitution in Ocean Beach...etc

That's what I did, bought out the Sharks and Bikers, immediately after 2nd island.
<Both Sharks and Bikers had many of the 3 previously locked ventures>
On-screen messages, "You can now do Drug missions", same for smuggling and Robbery.
Robbery is by far the hardest. Smuggling was easy for me to finish.

Those boats, there is no challenge. Stop driving, (stand up) lock on with assault rifle, done.
Don't take boat back, head to shore. Near the Time Trial Races (Dirt Track in VC)
is armor and health if needed. Never got more than 1-star. Get a land vehicle back.
Incredibly easy.

The other smuggling missions, different story, those were tricky.

About the empire businesses, people keep mentioning the hit squads.
I got rid of them by maxing everything out, and having no damaged sites.
I've finished all the 6 different types of empire mission, bought
all 30/30 empire sites, and keep them in good standing, not damaged.
No hit squads, no messages "Your business is under attack".

By the way, YES, you can change the type of business, but NO you
can't have more than one business at a time in one location.

When you get the message "Your Business Is Under Attack"...you can stop that attack by attacking another business. ph34r.gif

Here's what I did... rolleyes.gif
I got the Police 'copter and I had previously loaded up on StarFish Island with the Rockets...
I would land on the closest rooftop to a business,attack the vehicle with the lancher,and use whatever to kill all the baddies that came out...but they don't all come out at once,sooo...get back in the chopper,fly over the business and land back where you were,then the next wave comes out...rinse and repeat.

Land the 'copter nearby but not in the footprint of the largest building option(land nearby but not within the fence that will be erected when you build).Make sure to be away from roads and the random attacks will be easier to takeoff from.Enter the business and do whatever you gotta do.The 'copter will be where you left it.
Go to the next business and do the same.

When you get the message "Your Business Is Under Attack"...simply make sure you blow up the next vehicle at the next business(simply the closest one to you)before the damage meter maxes out.The attack is glitched away.

I started on the second island at the south end,worked my way north,and got every business on this island...saved and did the same on the next island.

The only way to stop the attacks is to start another mission or save.

As for the business types,I paid no real attention to that...Near the circus loan sharking,near hotels prostitutes,near businesses protection,slums drugs,ah,you get the picture.As for smuggling and robbery...anything out of the way with lotsa access.

The Shark hit squads and Attacks on your businesses will stop after you own all the businesses and save.They will continue to attack after you own the last business unless you save.

I did all the Empire missions on the first island. thumbup.gif

Hint:Drive near the seawall(on the first island) on the long main drag and you can avoid all attackers for a good length of the entire first island.Staying off the roads made these missions surprisingly easy.I had the business closest to the old biker club for Smuggling(also near the Seaplane for quick transport).I would leave the docks,grab the bribe from behind the building near my second save house,drive through the parking lot to the seawall and all the way to that business.The only time I lost any packages is when I hit a tree!The cops/attackers stayed on the roads.This route is not even grass but the concrete beyond the grass...It seemed much more dfficult on the PSP,but I think the camera stick is the biggest help.All I have left are balloons,jumps and rampages(my favorite!) clap.gif

You mean after unlocking the final 3 on the 2nd island right?



I also did the *actual* missions on the 1st island, and I think this is better because we knew the 1st island better, for bribes and such.

It's been peaceful in my game, since conqering all 30.


One thing I have read somewhere, after you finish the storyline missions,
gangs start attacking empire sites again. I guess this is to keep it fun after finishing the storylines?
(That is, if it is even true)

I've just been doing all the sides and races. R3's, rampages, etc done.
Only the basic few 2nd island storylines done. 65%, and counting percentages.

I did all the storyline first,then everything else(plus some new stuff to the PS2 version),and Empire last.
All I have left are balloons,jumps and rampages(my favorite!) .I have not encountered another attack...yet.
But there may be some yet undiscovered side/vehicle missions...I hope clap.gif .I'm at just over 70%,sooo 10% for each
of my 3 remaining quests,or less but maybe new stuff to discover? biggrin.gif
