As subject, loaded a saved game today, and all the cars were white! I even
started a new game, just in case my save game was screwed up. Any ideas
gang?

Cheers.

Did you use any cheats?

The only cheat I have used in the past is for weapons. but like I said, the
problem was still there after I started a new game from scratch.

Many players have experienced problems with safehouse garages "eating"
the paintwork of custom cars. ere any of yours modded from Loco Low Co,
Transfender or Wheel Arch Angels?

It seems to happen in the game's main garages; CJ's house and SF
safehouse.


Cheers,
Rob

SA seems to have the ability to remember details even after a restart,
just look at my 'gagging for it' post. Your answer may be to actually
remove the data from your card before playing the game again.

i managed to collect the bullet/fire/explosion/damage proof tampa from the
"nines and ak's" mission and stored it in the ganton safe house garage.

when i completed "cesar vialpando", i stored the modded car in the same
garage.

now, in the "bullet-proof cars" faq, it states that you must visit the
garages storing special/modded cars regularly to make sure they are still
there or they haven't turned white. guess what i wasn't doing? :-)

anyway, i started "high stakes, low rider" and went to the garage to
collect my modded car... not only had it lost its paint job, my
"everything proof" tampa was gone!

i checked through my save games and although the low rider was still
white, my tampa was there after "robbing uncle sam", which meant i had to
_that_ mission again.

you guessed it, "life's a beach".

the moral to the story is: check up on the garages that contain
special/modded vehicles regularly!

here's the faq, by the way... a recommended read. not only does it tell
you how to get special vehicles, it tells you how to keep them and most
importantly, which garages are "dodgy":

Thanks for all the replies, but they all mention San Andreas, but if you
look at my message's header, it says VC - * VICE CITY *

I hope the same applies for VC as is does for SA.

Yep, tried that too. And yes, even the police cars are white - along with
choppers, trucks - everything.
