    • I didn't have subtitles turned on, but I think MJ stated his name was Mitch. Not sure if J is his middle or last initial. The farm he works is called De Costa Family Farm, not sure if that's his family name or not.

    • Any change to A.I or Police A.I in general? Since it's different place and different agency, I expect some differences.

      This thread is for the general discussion of details related to the dlc. I don't want it to turn into another long rant on the police AI. Feel free to start a separate discussion on the sheriff's if you wish to discuss this further.

      To answer your question though, the Sinclair Parish Sheriff's behave as an enemy, not police officers. They show up red on your radar instead of blue. You can use brutal takedowns on them and they drop cash and weapons when killed. You spend the bulk of the DLC in car chases with them but once the main story is over, which is incredibly quick btw, they don't seem to have any presence in the district. That's about all I have for now.

    • Ok not sure how to proceed with this last chapter/mission. Concerned Citizens has you speak with Laveau. Once done, it closes out and three new missions open up, A Good Man, An Instrument of Justice, and A Proverbial Canary. They show up oddly in the queue though, stacked on top of one another along with the Herbalism mission, which has nothing to do with this one. Once all three of those are done, Concerned Citizens reopens, which basically sends you back to Laveau to complete the mission.

      Brutal takedowns work on regular police officers too, as do stealth takedowns, but Lincoln doesn't use his combat knife for those, maybe not for brutal takedowns either, I can't remember now.

    • I find it odd how the story chapters in Faster, Baby! have the chapter name below Sinclair Parish, while the optional chapters have the DLC name there.

      Once again, the people over at Hangar 13 show they have no concept of uniformity.

      Not sure we should even call them chapters, the entire dlc felt more like a side mission. Hell, that "chapter" New Shade of Green was nothing but carrying a bag of manure across a greenhouse, not sure why that needed it's own separate mission.

      It's a sad day when the best part of a story DLC is the protagonist getting a booty call.

      I think I meant lethal, as in he uses his knife when doing them in stealth. Regular police stealth takedowns are him choking them from behind or punching them, I'm not sure if those are actually lethal.

    • Any idea as to when the DLC takes place within Mafia III's timeframe? We can confirm that it takes place sometime after Lincoln murders Ritchie Doucet, but otherwise, no other information has been given as to the setting of this DLC. I would assume, though, that it probably doesn't take place after the main events of Mafia III.

      I'd count those as non-lethal; I think they're the same as you'd get on standard enemies if you change the takedowns to non-lethal in the options.

      Faster, Baby! definitely takes place after Lincoln has his first sitdown (which doesn't have an exact date), but it can be played anytime after that, so it doesn't really have an exact timeframe.

      The dlc can be played after completing the game, so it can take place after the main events.

      The problem with open world games where the player is given freedom to choose when to do missions is that it's impossible to give an exact time frame on events. Mafia II was scripted so we did everything in the order they wanted us to, even the time of day only changed at predetermined points. There's no way to make a game like Mafia III while giving set dates of events.

      I was just thinking about this. Perhaps "Faster, Baby!" is the chapter/mission name. Instead of Concerned Citizens, A Good Man, An Instrument of Justice and The Proverbial Canary being separate missions, they're part of one called Faster, Baby! with four objectives, similar to how the districts have a separate objective for each racket. Though, they list Herbalism as part of that too and it seems to be its own separate thing.

      On the other hand maybe they just put Faster, Baby! there as a placeholder and never got around to fixing them. Herbalism is listed in Sinclair Parish and it doesn't even take place there, it's at the compound.

      That might be the case, I think some of the unfinished DLC scripts found in the game files have something like DLC_Name there as a placeholder. Do you think we should still have separate pages for all four of those missions?

      Let me play through the dlc again and see exactly how those missions unfold, should give me a clearer understanding. It took us a while to wrap our heads around these mission names when the game was first released, that may just be the case here. It could just be sloppy work on the developers part too, wouldn't surprise me.

      Yeah, the original description of the DLC called Roxy his former flame, but in February they changed it to sister-in-arms.

      I opted to continue my previously saved game in order to play Faster Baby! (I had finished the story) and it gave me the options of leaving New Bordeaux or going to the plantation house, so Faster Baby! would obviously come before the game's ending, but can still happen after Yet Here We Are. Maybe The Voice's ending doesn't need to be re-worded, per say, but just note in trivia that if you happen to play Faster Baby! after Yet Here We Are, there's a small conflict of his status.

      I played Faster baby from a completed save file and it worked just fine. The people at Mafia Game stated it could be started from a completed game as well.

      All that's heard in that recording is some police shouting and gunfire, nothing conclusive that he's in jail or dead.

    • I don't recall hearing gunfire on that recording, I thought it was the police banging on the door and then kicking it in.

      If you choose to leave New Bordeaux or rule alone when you finish the game, you're able to make a different choice, so that's why it appeared to you that you hadn't yet completed the game. If you choose to rule together after driving to the plantation house, then the choice will not appear again. None of this has any effect on Faster, Baby!

      I'm pretty sure it was gunfire. I heard it recently and those sounds came after the police came in and were (probably) taking him away because his voice fades away from the microphone, similar to Remy Duvall on the last Native Son.

    • In conversation with Irma, she gives her husbands name as Bobby, however there's an NPC conversation at the Miller Farm that gives his name as Bobby Lee. While I suppose Lee could be his middle name, it's likely that's his (and Irma's) surname. Though at this time I can find nothing concrete to base that on, other than some general statistics and common usage.

      According to Wikipedia, Lee is the 22nd most common surname in the US, which is actually pretty high up there considering how many last names there are in this country. Also, Irma doesn't refer to him as Bobby Lee, just Bobby, which makes sense if Lee is their shared last name. Also, if he commonly went by his first and middle name, it seems like his wife would have called him that too.

    • There's a rather interesting character called J.B., you hear him first at the impound, if you sneak to the back of the lot to the guy in a small building you hear him on the radio asking what slim is going to do about the commies. later, after the county fair, he comes on the radio saying help is on the way, then a dixie mafia type pickup barges into the chase.

    • I got a few shots of Slim, like usual it's tough to catch one at a good moment, but I'll upload the best choices and we can pick one for his infobox.
