Safehouses are redesigned in GTA IV; instead of spinning save icons, the player approaches the bed within the safehouse, and selects the option to sleep and save their game. Garages used to store vehicles are replaced by yellow-outlined "RESIDENTS PARKING ONLY" printed parking spaces located on the street outside the safehouses; these parking lots are able to hold up to two full-size sedans, and are also known to be able to save helicopters. Saved vehicles have a slight advantage over traffic cars in the sense of damage. When a saved car gets damaged, it heals itself over time (a simple drive around the block and coming back does this) This only happens when the car recieves a severe hit such as a t-bone or explosion aftermath, making the car undrivable.(This abnormal ability is unknown TLAD, but it's in GTA IV and TBOGT ) [[television]] is also available in each safehouse, and two safehouses offer additional equipment — a [[pool]] table at the [[Playboy X's Penthouse|optional northern Algonquin safehouse]], and a laptop with [[Internet in GTA IV|internet]] capability at the [[Middle Park East Safehouse|eastern Algonquin safehouse]]. The northern Algonquin safehouse can also be used for internet acess on the main floor of the building.

Although some safehouses will not be available until their appearance in the story (and one may be skipped entirely), their parking spaces are still usable to the player. For example, players may park vehicles at the [[Bohan]] safehouse at any time from the beginning of the game, despite the safehouse itself only being accessible later in the game. Note also that once Roman's apartment in Broker is no longer able to be used, its parking spaces will remain functional.

Middle Park East loft

As in previous Grand Theft Auto games, safehouses in Grand Theft Auto IV are available in Liberty City and Alderney for Niko Bellic to use to save the game, watch TV, and a wardrobe to change his clothes. GTA IV has a total of five safehouses, one of which becomes inaccessible early on, and one of which is optional.

The number of safehouses in GTA IV is a sharp reduction from Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas, which offered up to 37 safehouses. Niko acquires his safehouses free of charge, as the player is automatically awarded each safehouse upon completion of specific missions.

Description Edit

Safehouses are redesigned in GTA IV. Instead of spinning save icons, the player approaches the bed within the safehouse, and selects the option to sleep and save their game. Garages used to store vehicles are replaced by yellow-outlined "RESIDENTS PARKING ONLY" printed parking spaces located on the street outside the safehouses. These parking spaces can accomodate a maximum of two cars and three motorcycles. Any damaged vehicles saved in the parking spaces will repair themselves when Niko leaves the area or the player reloads their game. Each safehouse features a working television, though only one features internet access (though the computer in the lobby of the Northwood Penthouse building can be used to access the internet).



Although some safehouses will not be available until certain points in the storyline (and one may be skipped entirely), the player can still save vehicles in the parking spaces outside the safehouse from the beginning of the storyline. Even though the Broker apartment is burnt down during the storyline, its parking space remains usable.
