[[Image:Blista Compact (GTAVC) (front).jpg|thumb|right|300px|A Blista Compact in GTA Vice City ([[:Image:Blista Compact (GTAVC) (rear).jpg|Rear quarter view]]).]] The '''Blista Compact''' is a 2 door hatchback available in [[Grand Theft Auto: Vice City]], [[Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas]], [[Grand Theft Auto: Vice City Stories]] and [[Grand Theft Auto IV]]. [[Grand Theft Auto: Chinatown Wars]] features a car similar to the Blista Compact, named the '''Blista'''. In Grand Theft Auto IV, the Blista Compact is manufactured by [[Dinka]]. The Blista Compact is a seperate car to the [[Blista]] van seen in [[Grand Theft Auto III]], and [[Grand Theft Auto: Liberty City Stories]]. ==Description== The Blista Compact is commonly found almost anywhere in [[Vice City in GTA III Era|Vice City]] or [[State of San Andreas|San Andreas]], and is generally considered to be a satisfactory car, particularly useful for quick getaways and general evasive purposes. In GTA IV, the Blista Compact is worth [[Dollar|$]]1,500 at [[Stevie]]'s garage, where Niko can bring the vehicle after completing all of his [[Stevie's Car Thefts|Text Message Car missions]]. ===Design=== Unlike many other vehicles, the Blista Compact's design has remained almost exactly the same in all its appearances, apart from its different engine sound and minor cosmetic differences. Like its design influence, the first generation [[wp:Fiat Brava|Fiat Brava]], the Blista Compact sports a hatchback design and a very small curb weight; in fact, the Blista Compact is easily the smallest and lightest passenger car in GTA Vice City and GTA San Andreas (the [[Uranus]] is lighter in GTA IV). The car has a two-tone paintjob in GTA Vice City, with an always-black bottom half, but in later games was remodeled to feature a variety of colors in all-over and two-tone styles. In GTA IV, the Blista Compact may optionally feature a spoiler or sunroof; a variant is available with side-skirts, twin exhaust and a windscreen banner. There are several burnt out [[Wrecks|wreck]] versions of the Blista Compact.

=== Performance === Since its introduction in GTA Vice City, the Blista Compact has usually been an impressive small sports car, capable of outrunning rarer and more expensive performance cars. In GTA Vice City Stories, however, the Blista Compact is noticeably slower, and suffers from terrible oversteer. Blista Compacts all adopt front wheel drive. In GTA IV, the Blista Compact is powered by a high revving, twin cam 1.4L four-cylinder engine, giving it a top speed on par with much higher-end vehicles and acceleration superior to its nearest competition, the [[Futo]]. Its suspension is excellent, preventing understeer. At high speeds it is more than capable of cornering, and at low speeds it is easy to maneuvre through city traffic. Braking is acceptable, though ABS is not standard. Crash deformation is acceptable, though build quality is sub par, often leaving the Blista Compact disabled after only a few impacts. ==Locations== '''GTA San Andreas''' *Next to one of the radar towers at [[Easter Bay International Airport]] in [[San Fierro]] (only when wanted for export) *Usually seen in San Fierro and Las Venturas regions.

Civilization Committee

From Grand Theft Wiki

The Civilization Committee logo.

The Civilization Committee (CC) is an international organization in Grand Theft Auto IV and Grand Theft Auto: Chinatown Wars based on the United Nations.

Organization

Described as a "largely ineffective organization where representatives from nations around the world are supposed to decide on the best course of action in the event of an international conflict",[1] the CC's presence in the game is intended to satirize the various shortcomings of the United Nations in real life. The CC is ridiculed for doing little in international affairs, while organizing lavish meals (when parts of the world suffer from starvation) and failing to pay parking tickets.[1] For these reasons, the United States Administration "wisely" ignores the CC, and the view of their building from the Humboldt River is claimed to be more significant than the organization based inside.[1]

CC Building

The CC Building (based on the United Nations Headquarters in New York City) is the CC's headquarters in Liberty City, located in Hatton Gardens on the shore of the Humboldt River along Albany Avenue. The complex consists of a single tower, which rises 510 ft. high, as well as various low-rise buildings and an assembly hall, similar to the UN headquarters. The complex also features a garden on the north end, where several outdoor sculptures are located.

The building is heavily guarded by the LCPD (armed with M4 Carbine assault rifles) and trespassing into the complex (even just the parking lot) will result in a 4-star wanted level, implying the complex is a high security area where the player is not meant to enter. Despite the dangers of entry into the complex, a unique stunt jump is situated within the area, where the player must jump off the roof of the complex's assembly hall and land in the garden below. The only civilians in the premises are the LSD cleaners maintaining the garden.

In Grand Theft Auto: Chinatown Wars, despite there occasionally being three police officers stationed at the entrance, no wanted level is gained on entry and pedestrians freely roam the complex.

Mission appearances

Despite being a major location in Liberty City, no single-player missions in any of the three games directly involve the complex, with the exception of the stunt jump described aboved (and, as noted below, one multiplayer level takes place there). Depending on luck, it is possible during the TLAD mission Collector's Item for one of the fleeing gangster vehicles to flip over a fence and end up on the grounds, potentially requiring Johnny to have to enter the area to finish them off, unless he can hit them from outside the compound.

Trivia

  • On The Ballad of Gay Tony's multiplayer mode, the grounds of the Civilization Committee complex is the location of a Team Deathmatch/Deathmatch map called "Global Domination". Unlike single player mode, there are no armed police there during the match.
