While looking for "flying rats" tonight I found a mansion with a two car garage that opened up and allowed me to pull my car inside (like the garages in San Andres). Weird thing is, this is the only garage I've found in the whole map, it isn't a safehouse, and it has nothing to do with anything in the storyline (I've completed the storyline so I know you can't earn it as a safehouse that way). If you're intrested in locating it; it's on the first island (extreme north). It's two blocks, maybe three blocks down, right in the middle of the north island. There is also a mansion (different mansion: north of the mansion with the 2 car garage [spoiler]and just below the warehouse where you meet Demetri on the last mission to kill him[/spoiler]) with a helicoptor pad and a Mavrick that always spawns there. Anyone know about this? locked.gif

Big mansions in Alderney all have garages which open up, also one has a Maverick in its backyard. I noticed it while watching the TV show "I'm Rich". happy.gif

I first found the open garages at [spoiler]Gambetti's[/spoiler] house

I tried to save a Moonbeam there lol. When I came back the garage was empty. sad.gif Dammit. You can still save cars at the first safehouse that was burned down, even though you can't save the game there.

Could be that the mansions with garages were originally designed for use a safe houses for later in the game before Rockstar ditched the idea, it might be that this is a left over glitch, especially as you can't save your cars there and they are all empty.

I miss owning your own car garage/showroom.

I wonder why they did this with the mansions. It really teases us knowing the garage idea was added, but then scrapped. I think there was a lot of idea's put into gta4 in the early stages, but a lot of things got scrapped.

I have a video of the garage doors opening somewhere, I'll try and find it.

Found it:
