    THERE ARE A MILLION STORIES IN LIBERTY CITY. THIS ONE CHANGES EVERYTHING. ONCE 
    A TRUSTED WISE GUY IN THE LEONE CRIME FAMILY, TONI CIPRIANI WAS FORCED INTO
    HIDING AFTER KILLING A MADE MAN. NOW HE'S BACK AND IT'S TIME FOR THINGS TO BE
    PUT RIGHT.
    
    The streets of Liberty City are in turmoil. Warring Mafiosi vie for control as
    the town begins to self-destruct under waves of political corruption, organised
    crime, drug trafficking and union strikes. No-one can be trusted as Toni tries
    to clean up the mess of the city's chaotic underworld. Deraged hit men, morally
    depraved tycoons, cynical politicians and his own mother stand in his way as
    Toni tries to bring the city under Leone control.
    
    Forced to fight for his life in an odyssey that will shake Liberty City to its
    foundations, Toni must use any means necessary to secure his place in the 
    leadership of the Leone family in a town up for grabs.

    what you are aiming to achieve.

    Go to the southern part of the island and go west. You should see a ramp made
    of dirt in front of you. Go to where the warehouses are (where you meet
    Vincenzo for his missions) and turn around. Speed towards the ramp and when
    you come around the corner following the wall, make a slight adjustment to your
    path to ensure you hit the jump correctly. Land on the pier to complete the 
    jump.

    Advised Car: PCJ600
    
    Go south from the police station and cut across the grass. Take the road to

    and slowly reverse all the way back to the grassy hill beside the police
    station. Hold the X Button and push forward gently on the analog stick to lean
    forward on the bike. This will give you the necessary speed to clear the
    first roof and land on top of the next, thus completing the jump.

    You should see this ramp behind the police station. Back the PCJ up to the
    wall of the supermarket and accelerate forward. Gently push forward on the
    analog stick to lean forward and increase speed. You'll need to clear the
    police station car park and land in the road to complete the jump.

    X. Unique Jump 10
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Advised Car: PCJ600
    
    Go the ferry terminal and go south along the pier. Turn around and accelerate
    forward. Push gently forward on the analog stick to lean forward and increase
    speed. Go up the grassy mound, aiming for between the two billboards. Land
    between the two billboards in the car park to complete the jump.
    
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    XI. Unique Jump 11
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    Location: Callahan Point, Portland
    Advised Car: PCJ600
    
    As you are travelling down the one way highway, look to your left and you
    should see a stone wall. Drive through and look to your left and you should see
    a rampway and a donut behind it. You'll have to go through the donut and land
    in the car park to complete the jump. Back the bike up and speed forward. 
    Gently push the analog stick forward to lean forward on the bike and connect
    with the ramp, pass through the donut and land in the car park to complete
    the jump.
    
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Location: Docks, Portland
    Advised Car: PCJ600
    
    This is in the second of the six warehouses in a row on the north side of the
    docks. Back the car right up against the wall and speed forward. Lean forward
    on the bike by gently pushing forward on the analog stick. It is imperative
    that you lean forward on the bike or you will not have enough speed. After
    leaning forward, hit the ramp and land on the beach across the water to
    complete the jump.
    
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    XIII. Unique Jump 13

    Location: Dirt Track, Portland
    Advised Car: PCJ600
    
    You should notice the rampway just beneath the elevated train tracks in the
    vicinity of the dirt track. Back up all the way down to the base of the track
    and speed forward. Gently push forward on the analog stick to lean forward
    and instead of going straight up the ramp, hit it a little bit to the left.
    Once you clear the elevated train tracks you complete the jump.

    Find the rampway, which is an elevated piece of grass and go up the street.
    Turn around and lean forward on the Freeway and hit the accelerator. Go in
    between the two trees in front of you and hit the ramp. When you land on the
    other side of the water you complete the jump.

    Enter the docks and keep going south. You should notice there's basically a
    clear stretch of dock ahead of you with only a container on the right and then
    a large grass ramp at the end. Speed forward and hit the ramp. In order to 
    clear this jump, you'll have to hit the ramp at an angle and clear the
    billboards on the right. Hit the ramp at the correct angle and when you clear
    the billboards and land on the road you complete the jump.
