1. It was substituted of majority (52) of city citizens. Beside of familiar characters, you will meet both little-known people and persons who did not be recognised earlier. Most of the replacments appear at “summer” period of game (chapters 7-15,+JA+JV+boJ). Be careful, some of peaceful-looking people can be aggressive.
2. Do not escape from cut-scenes! Some of them can be funny.
3. Surprises related with cars substitution:
a) Police car chase is dramatically changed. Cops in full-length protrude from window and try to shoot you. You can take a seat beside of police driver and ride as a passenger. Giving a bribe, you can sit on the driver’s seat and carry a second cop.
To avoid being fined by cop, turn on “L” (speed limiter). Showing gun, pull out the police from their cars and quickly occupy driver’s seat. Stolen car will not be wanted.
b) You can diversify the game, constantly replacing police cars from “police car bonus” folder to “…Mafia II\pc\sds\cars” folder. One provides of 17 additional cars options for winter (chapters 2-5) and for summer (chapters 7-15,+JA+JV+boJ) of periods of game.
c) You can take off up to 3-7 floors house, using Smith Coupe car (distorted). Park it by right side closely to vertical solid surface and press “f” (get out). Walls and fences made of natural stone lead to the best results. The highest jump ends fatally. That is why, it is appropriate to setup additional installations of Mafia-2 with immortality mode***(see below)
d) By this method, you can get through wooden fences and other barrier, occuring in not previously available places of city. Beside of parking skills, just luck is that you need as well. Do not park “Smith Coupe” car at tilt toward the fence, otherwise you sink into the ground, see the jpeg-file “map secret places”.
4. If, at Sicilia mission, you’ll be the first who run up on a balcony, quickly move to left. Bumping in parapet, press “space. If you are very lucky, you will be jumped to sky.
