GHOST TOWN/CARCER CITY GUIDE by: Loly Pop

REASON:
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)

RUMOR:
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.

FACT:
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.

HINT
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.

dido.
camp kill yourself
ive heard about the one town that you can unlock by completing gta 3 100% i never got around to that gta vice 100% was hard enough but i guess it might be easier since theres not as much extra stuff like there is in gta vice
i guess ill go check that place out sooner or later

I never been to Ghost town.....Can some one tell me how to get there with out using a Mod.................
Tootsie_Roll
take off going away from the city with your dodo. Not towards staunton but out to see kind of. Then just sstay close to the coast line and fly around the shoreside vale and you'll see it. On the map you'll see names of towns written on it

here is a picture how to do it.

Cool to know!
Mr. Thunderfield
I just thought i should make it clearer that ghost town IS NOT Carcer city. The mod is quite fun to use, and if you haven't mastered the dodo, i encourage using it. But the dodo is very fun to fly, so fly there if you can!
Kuwong
or just use the dodo cheat on a car.
VortekZ
Cool stuff. thumbup.gif
skaterkee
wow I had no idea about this, wooow, why did they dump it there, i dont get it?
basicked
waiit. so after 100%, you could go to carcer city? just like drive through or actually do more missions? i guess they thought they'd make another game w/ carcer city
Kuwong
you cant drive there or i think you cant i never got 100% its not solid and the two tunnels just join together and they cant go out to it in the sea.
Blackhawk3
Its simple, read the sign above where the ghost town bank is, it has "LIBERTY CITY BANK" across it but why did Rockstar make the city bank outside the city huh.gif
DeKo
it was to "film" the opening cutscene with catalina and claude robbing the bank.
Do Not Trust this Man
Woohoo, i saw the Goast Town Today biggrin.gif

I Accidently went to far and i missed it to the left and when i lost control of the tank, i fly to the right and there it was right infront of me biggrin.gif. When i saw it i was in awe and i let go of the buttons so i dies sad.gif

Still a good place to visit though!
Pitbull
wow, i always heard of that "Ghost Town", but i just thought it was a just rumour. good to finally know. thumbup.gif
timtag1190
thanks i just got over to ghost town today it was sweat then all of a sudden somthing happend i dont know why but a cop appered and knocked me down but did not errest me though then all of a sudden the cars came back from the start of the game(the one that where crashed) and i saw a double of me why is that
Tootsie_Roll
............I have never had that happen to me. But patrolium jelly usually fixes those problems.
The Demon
about 6 moths ago i saw a screenshot of sum1 standing on it does any1 know where any solid spot is?
Tootsie_Roll
There isn't a solid spot because it was all film. There is a mod for pc to where it makes it solid and makes a bridge to it.
The Demon
oh ok....so there is no way to get it solid for ps2?
Jazzman
I don't know. I read about this in a magazine once. Do any of you lot out there read the Playstation magazine Powerstation ?, because if you do, then you should know about the GTA Wiseguys Section of the magazine where all your GTA problems are sorted. Some guy once wrote in about this city that you lot are on about and the guy who replies to peoples letters says thats a load of crap and there is no Carson City. Anyone like to comment on this ?. smile.gif
tuppo
erm.. well... we have proof here that it DOES exist.. so theres not really much point in commenting on that is there.
Tootsie_Roll
Then why did you comment? Look CARSER CITY DOESN'T FUCKING EXIST. A damn filming area called the Ghost town does.


God i fucking give up with you people.
Randomly-Insane
.....carser city exists in Manhunt, so technically your wrong there loly pop tongue.gif

but yeah i agree, enough with Carcer City in GTA, its not there, Period.
Tootsie_Roll
Thats what i meant......

But it is not that hard to fucking get. Stupidity must MUST be a gene thing.
The Demon
on the computer is it solid?or do u have to make it
TheDon187
There is a mod for the PC version demon.
Mr. Thunderfield
Do you think it's possible to make it solid on PS2 with AR MAX or something like that?
Tootsie_Roll
Maybe...no one ever found out I don't believe...
chris1210
do you have to have 100%
fennboy62
can sum1 post a link to the mod?
Tootsie_Roll
Go to gtagayming.com

Then go to gta3 mods.

Search around a bit in there...

Thank you, AKT. You are smart...

I am using that in the first post if you don't mind. It is a very good FAQ!
Corkyboy
I bought GTA3 in November in 2001 and now is the first time I've seen the ghost town.
I knew it existed but I didn't know where!!!
Thanks for the map!
thumbup.gif
Kuwong
Yeah it was a cool find, amazing there’s still talk about this, despite how old the game is.
The Demon
Its still a grat game you have to admit althou its old.
grove_4_life1
is there any other way to get there aside from dodo its not possible to fly for me.....
Tootsie_Roll
Yes. There is...it involves cheats...

- 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.

Does that help?

[right][snapback]733117[/snapback][/right]



i know i'm WAY old on this, but why DID they just dump this city above Shoreside? I mean, other games don't have cutscene area's literally right above the main game play area, do they?

There are plenty of crossover references in all GTA games to ManHunt, and other R* games. Very cool.

They should DEF. add some of the myths that float around into future games. (bigfoot, aliens, ghosts, etc)
WTP129
Excellent guide dude smile.gif
The Demon
I have the PC version of GTA3 and I added the mod that makes it solid and make a bidge thats leads to it`its pretty cool. I could take some pictures if any one wants some.
