    Faq version 1.3
    by Scrubking
    As so many others I love GTA3 and I especially love driving around in the rich
    and expansive enviornment. I don't know when it came to me, but suddenly I 
    wanted to find unintended places that I could use as a ramp and maybe get an 
    insane stunt bonus. My curiosity has led me to create this Faq so that others 
    could share in my findings. If you want to know my definition of a non-unique
    jump scroll down to the faqs.

    Non-Unique Jumps
    Below are the jumps I have selected for my faq. They are grouped by island 
    ,and they are in no particular order. Keep in mind that when you hit these 
    jumps will not always land perfectly and you will find yourself losing a lot 
    of vehicles. So I suggest not using vehicles that you don't want to lose such 
    as bullet proof cars. I have include my best insane stunt off of each jump, 
    and it is self explanitory. I have also included a challenge rating. There 
    will only be three difficulties: easy, medium and hard. The challenge rating 
    measures how hard it is to get a quality jump. I would suggest that you not 
    judge a jump by my best insane stunt. The rating does not always correlate 
    with how crazy a jump can get. Finally, and most of all, Have fun!
    				* Jumps in Portland *
    1. Raffles Fish Factory
    Directions: At the fish factory next to the chinatown stop for the L is a 
    ridge that borders the parking lot. That ridge is the jump and you can hit it
    at many angles. The best is to come from the west heading east under or next
    to the L-train stairs. There isn't a lot of room cause of the building right
    across the street, but you can do some fun things like try to leave the car 
    laying against the wall vertically if you land that way.

    2. Portland Docks Entrance
    Directions: At the entrance to the portland docks you will see a large sign
    saying just that. As you enter it will be on your left. If you notice the 
    sign is on a piece of ground that sticks out; that is your jump. You want to
    hit it squarely going west. See if you can catch enough speed to jump higher
    than or over the sign.

    3. Chinatown Park Building
    Directions: East of the park in Chinatown and directly north of the Callahan 
    bridge is a building where you have to transport hookers to early on in the 
    game. Around the parking lot of that building is a small wall. That wall is 
    the jump. There are so many ways to approach this jump, but I like coming from 
    the east starting at the back of joey's garage. 
    Best Insane Stunt: Double
    Challenge: Medium
    4. Chinatown Park Hedge
    Directions: Just west of the basketball courts in the Chinatown park, the 
    hedge wall begins to curve with the road. The curving hedge is the jump by the 
    way. There is a long road that intersects that curve so you just come at the 
    hedge from the north.

    Challenge: Medium
    5. Capital Autos
    Directions: Go over to Capital autos. It is the car dealership right next to 8-
    balls bomb shop. As you enter the lot you should see the main building of the 
    dealership to your right where there is a banshee parked inside. If you look 
    straight ahead you will see a small building with a sign above it that says 
    "eightballs autoyard". Just in front of that building there is a wall that 
    gets bigger going left and smaller to the right, and it ends a little past the 
    end of the building I just mentioned. That small piece of wall that sticks out 
    past the building to the right is the jump. There is not a lot of room for 
    accleration so a fast car is recommended. Come at this jump from the gas 
    station wall to the west. This jump is cool because of the pinball action you 
    can get with the busses and buildings in close proximity.

    Challenge: Hard
    6. Hospital Rear
    Directions: Behind the hospital and directly southwest of the stairs that lead 
    down into the SupaSave, on the west side is a small grassy incline; which is 
    the jump. If you count the small signs next to the video camera on the 
    backside of the hospital the incline starts at about the third one from the 
    north. It is clearly noticable coming from the south. You also want to hit 
    this jump from the south and you will have to turn into it. Since it is right 
    on the wall of the hospital you are mainly going to get backflips, but 
    at different angles you can get other cool effects.

    7. Saint Mark's Alleyways
    Directions: Just north of Marco's Bistro there is a brownish building with a 
    small entrance into a long alleway that runs east/west. If you follow the 
    alley west you will see that it ends at a road with a small grassy incline on 
    the other side of the street. On top of the incline is a small ridge which is 
    the jump. For best results go to the aforementioned alleyway entrance and head 
    west. When you hit the jump you will end up hitting the wall just west of the 
    jump, but there is a space in between the buildings towards the south part of 
    the jump that you can go through if you aim it just right.

    				* Jumps in Staunton *
    1.North FBI Building
    Directions: Follow the northern side of the Callahan bridge all the way west. 
    You will notice that it will end and a small wall with some hedges will begin 
    that continues around the corner. That wall with the hedges is the jump. What 
    you want to do is come at it from the road directly south of it and aim 
    towards the road on the other side.

    2. Ammunation
    Directions: Go to the Ammunation in Staunton and directly east of it there is 
    a small ridge that runs parallel to the sidewalk. That ridge is the jump. You 
    want to start at the park and head down the road just right of the double 
    yellow lines and you will land right next to the condo below.

    3. Building 366
    Directions: Directly south of the police station is building 366. Just east of 
    it is an entrance that takes you around the back where an rc mission is. To 
    the left of the entrance when you face south is a ridge with grass and plants 
    on top. When you face south you will notice that the ridge makes a right in 
    font of the wall of another building. The part of the ridge in front of the 
    wall is the jump. Come at the ridge from the north where the stairs lead down 
    to the police station alley. It is not a straight path so you will have to 
    make adjustments. If you hit it right you will fly up the wall as if you were 
    driving on it.

    Challenge: Hard
    4. Road Divisions
    Directions: On the road directly west of the 366 building are large road 
    divisions with grass and trees on them. The sloped ends of these divisions are 
    the jumps. You can use any one of them to jump off of, but I believe that the 
    best one is the farthest one south that ends on the road that leads to Kenji's 
    casino. It is the least obstucted one of them all. You want to come at it from 
    the south on the road that goes around the large glass sculpture. Try not to 
    hit the tree head on.

    5. Punk Noodle Army
    Directions: On the west side of Staunton is a building with a Punk Noodle and 
    Army billboard. The buildings stairs just south of the billboards is the jump. 
    You want to come at this jump from the road just west of the building coming 
    north. I like this jump cause it is tricky. You have to aim just right or else 
    you will hit the wall or the billboards. Try completing the jump without 
    hitting anything. Also, driving on the sidewalk instead of the road will make 
    it easier to hit, but usually there are a lot of peds.

    6. Liberty Campus North
    Directions: Just north of the Liberty campus dropoff point for the taxi 
    missions is a small strip of concrete that runs east/west that is the 
    foundation of the next building. On the east side of that strip, heading 
    towards the construction site, is a steep grassy incline. That incline is the 
    jump. Just drive along the strip going east at the incline and if you hit it 
    right you can fly over the street light.

    7. Coliseum Parking Lot
    Directions: Go to the coliseum parking lot just north of the fire station. 
    From the outside coming in you will notice that the parking lot is perimitered 
    by a small wall and inside of the wall is a grassy area and inside of the 
    grassy area is a small ridge that borders it. That small ridge is the jump. 
    You can jump it going in any direction, but I have gotten the best results 
    jumping south towards the alley behind the fire station. Just line yourself up 
    with the alley and punch it. If you hit it right you will land inside the

    8. AMco Building
    Directions: Go to the AMco building and right next to the dropoff point for 
    the taxi missions, to the east, is an area of the AMco building that goes all 
    the way to the back of it. The grass surrounding the AMco area has a ridge 
    that borders it just like the coliseum paking lot. That ridge is the jump. 
    Once again you can jump it from any direction you want, but I like going south 
    down the strip on the east.

    9. See you in Miami
    Directions: As soon as you cross the callahan bridge into Staunton you will 
    notice that the road continues all the way to the west side of the island and 
    ends in an intersection. On the west side of the intersection is a billboard 
    that says "see you in Miami", and just below it is a sloped ridge that runs 
    parallel with the road North/South. That sloped ridge is the jump. You can 
    jump the ridge anywhere along the road, but in most cases you will end up dead 
    in the water. Just come from the east and head right at the billboard. You can 
    also jump the supa save billboard right next to it. I have gotten my car half 
    way over the billboard and also done an awesome backflip with a lot of hang

    10. Head Radio, Liberty Soul
    Directions: Just north of jump no.9 there are two more billboards. You can 
    also jump these going east to west, but you don't have a lot of acceleration 
    room. I recommend jumping these going north/south. The trick is to turn into 
    them at an angle as you pass them. Different angles will give you different 
    results, but you can get some cool in air rolls with this jump.

    11. Road to Asuka's condo
    Directions: This should be easy since there is only one road that leads down 
    to asuka's condo. It is the road directly south of the parking garage. As you 
    go east you will see the road curves right; at the end of that curve is a 
    large sloped ridge with grass and trees on it. That ridge is the jump, but 
    there is a catch. On the other side of the ridge is a light post and you need 
    to hit that post in some way to get the full effect. I will warn you that it 
    is very likely that you will end up in the ocean and die, and I have died many 
    times attempting this jump. I am against difficult jumps, but the crazy 
    effects you can get from this jump are worth the trouble in my opinion. I have 
    gone so high that I have hit the road directly above, and also made it to 
    about the fifth floor window of the condo right across.

    				* Jumps in Shoreside Vale *
    1. Airport Sumo
    Directions: As soon as you turn into the airport you will go down a small hill 
    and at the bottom of the hill against the parking lot wall is a billboard that 
    says "sumo" on it. To the right of the billboard is a grass incline. That is 
    the jump. The road to the south is very long so you have plenty of 
    acceleration room, but watch out for spawning vehicles. Also don't worry about 
    the trees too much cause most of them are not solid.

    2. Airport Stairs
    Directions: Once you go down the small hill and make a left into the airport 
    you will notice that there are sets of stairs that lead up to the terminal. 
    The rail on each side of the stair cases is the jump. The only stair cases 
    that you can use as a jump are the first, second, fourth and fifth because 
    they have a sloped area that you can drive up onto so that you can hit the 
    jump squarely. To hit these jumps just gain some speed going north or south 
    and drive up the slope, or you can back up to a stair case while on the 
    slope(you won't gain that much speed though). Actually the best staircase to 
    jump off of is the last one because you have a lot of landing room. You just 
    have to aim so that you don't hit the billboard or the terminal.

    3. Hideout Road
    Directions: Just behind your hideout to the north is the windy road that leads 
    up to Cedar Grove. When you exit your hideout and drive opposite the street 
    light you will end up in a parking lot. At the curve where the road turns into 
    the parking lot you will see a grassy incline that goes up to the windy road 
    above it. That grassy incline is the jump. Just hit this jump from the south.

    Frequently Asked Questions
    1. What is a non-unique jump?
    Answer: My interpretation of a non-unique jump is a jump that is obviously not 
    one of the 20 unique jumps in gta3. However, I also include all of the jumps 
    that are blatantly set up like the ramps at the airport and throughout the 
    city. If you look at it and it looks like a jump I am not going to include it 
    in my faq. It is also a jump that is not overly difficult to accomplish, and 
    it does not have to be an insane stunt. 
    2. How come jump abc isn't in your faq?
    Answer: Either I didn't know about it, it didn't meet the criteria of a non-
    unique jump or I didn't think it was spectacular enough.
    3. If I know of a jump can I submit it to your faq?
    Answer: Yes you can.
    4. What should I include in my submission?
    Answer: A detailed yet brief description of where the jump is and how to jump 
    it. Make sure I can understand it on my first try. I will not kill myself to 
    try to understand your directions. All directions should be given using north, 
    south, east and west. As soon as I see go right or go left I will disregard 
    your submission. If your jump is in a place with no easy to identify landmarks 
    make sure you give enough details so I can find it. 
    5. What shouldn't I include in my submission?
    Answer: Any jump that does not meet the qualifications of my definition of a 
    non-unique jump. That means no glitches either. 
    6. I can't find jump abc in your faq. Where is it?
    Answer: I have been extra careful to make sure the jumps can be easily 
    identified. If you still cannot find it keep reading and maybe you will get 
    your bearings, but don't email me asking to tell you where it is. Use the maps 
    provided with the game for help. Don't blame me if you don't know where 
    chinatown park is or any other landmark.
