---------------------
1. PARAMEDIC MISSIONS
---------------------
Vehicles Usable: Ambulance
Mode of Activation: Press CAPS LOCK or +(on the Number Pad)
Objective: Pick up the patients and bring them safely to the Hospital. The
           Patients will be marked as yellow markers on radar, the local
           hospital will be marked as a hot purple marker on the radar. Getting
           your vehicle shot at, dented significantly, or any other damage to
           your Ambulance will lessen the chance of the patients in your
           Ambulance of surviving, so drive carefully. If a patient dies, if
           you get wasted, or if you exit the Ambulance during the missions,
           your Paramedic mission trial will end. After picking up all the
           patients in one level, you will need to pick up one more patient
           than you did in the last level to complete the next level.
Goal: Complete the Level 12 Ambulance mission.
Prize for Goal Completion: Infinite Sprint
Goal Tips:
  -Turn on the siren. If you do turn on the siren, drive on the left side of
   the road. Though it may sound insane, cars stop when they hear the siren on
   the left side, therefore they are more predictable.
  -Do Ambulance missions in the Vice Point area. That area is easiest to
   navigate and most of the patients would be located at the beach, where there
   are few obstructions in your way. If you choose to do the missions in this
   area, stay off the RC Bandit track, for you will have about a great chance
   of flipping your Ambulance over or going through major delay trying to climb
   out of the track.
  -When the yellow dot marking the patient on your radar begins to close in to
   a lesser radius of distance, slow down, especially on the beach. The last
   thing you want to do is run over a patient if you plan on reaching Level 12.
  -Use your map to plan your route to all patients.

-----------------------
2. TAXI DRIVER MISSIONS
-----------------------
Vehicles Usable: Taxi, Cabbie, Kaufman Cab, Zebra Cab
Mode of Activation: Press CAPS LOCK or +(on the Number Pad)
Objective: Pick up fares and drop them off to their destination within the
           given time. Trashing you car may scare passengers in you car. If
           you're about to pick up a fare and your car is trashed, the fare
           will not enter the vehicle. Try to drive defensively. If the you or
           the fare gets killed, if you run out of time, or if you exit your
           vehicle, you're your Taxi trial will end, although it will not
           affect our goal.
Goal: Complete the 100 Taxi Driver Missions. It does not have to be
      consecutive.
Prize for Goal Completion: Taxi Boost(At High Speeds, you can press SHIFT and
                           your taxi vehicle will do a hydraulic leap)
Goal Tips:
  -Do the missions in the first big island. If you do it here, use the beach to
   express you way across the island without much obstructions.
  -Drive safely. 
  -Use your map to plan your route to the destination.

-----------------------
3. FIREFIGHTER MISSIONS
-----------------------
Vehicles Usable: Fire Truck
Mode of Activation: Press CAPS LOCK or +(on the Number Pad)
Objective: Put out the burning vehicle(and burning people that might be inside
           it). As the Firefighting Levels progress, the burning vehicles will
           be moving around, and the amount of burning cars and victims inside
           will increase. If a burning victim or Tommy gets killed, if you bail
           from the Fire Truck, if a burning vehicle gets destroyed, or you run
           out of time, you're Firefighting trial will end.
Goal: Complete the Level 12 Firefighter mission.
Prize for Goal Completion: Fireproof Tommy
Goal Tips:
  -Do the missions in the first big island. That area is easier to navigate.
  -You can rotate the hose by using the arrow buttons in the Number Pad.
. Use that to your advantage.
  -Use your map to plan your route to the blaze(s).

-------------------------------------
4. VIGILANTE & BROWN THUNDER MISSIONS
-------------------------------------
Vehicles Usable: Rhino, Barracks OL, Cheetah(Undercover), FBI Rancher,
                 FBI Washington, Enforcer, Police, Hunter
Mode of Activation: Press CAPS LOCK or +(on the Number Pad)
Objective: Eliminate the suspect(s) getting away in their Vehicle(s). As the
           Vigilante Levels progress, the amount of suspects in the next levels
           will increase. You can bail out of your Law Enforcer vehicle, and
           you have 1 minute to get back inside one. Getting killed, bailing
           out of your Law Enforcement vehicle and staying out for a minute, or
           if a suspect gets away, your Vigilante trial will end.
Goal: Complete the Level 12 Vigilante mission or the Level 12 Brown Thunder
      mission.
Prize for Goal Completion: 150 Armor
Goal Tips:
  -Do the missions in the first big island. That area is easier to navigate.
  -Use the Rhino or Hunter to do this service mission. They both have cannons
   for you to easily eliminate suspects. The Hunter cannot be reached by the
   suspects or Law Enforcers that easily. The Rhino is Resistant to almost
   anything but fire.
  -Use the Hunter. When doing Brown Thunder missions, a Hunter won't be
   bothered much by wanted levels or on-foot suspects. Plus, you can complete
   your goal much faster.
  -You have a 1 minute chance, after bailing to get inside a Law Enforcer
   vehicle. You can use this to your advantage in the event that your Law
   Enforcer vehicle is trashed.
  -Time will stack each level you go up so you can stock plenty of time when
   you get to higher levels. That will give you plenty of time to get rid of
   your wanted level or change vehicle.

---------------------
5. PIZZA BOY MISSIONS
---------------------
Vehicles Usable: Pizza Boy
Mode of Activation: Enter the Vehicle
Objective: Deliver pizzas to the costumers in 5 minutes. You can carry up to 6
           pizzas. If you run out of pizzas or if you are done tending to the
           string of costumers in a level, you must return to the pizzeria for
           more pizzas. Pull up beside a costumer and do a drive-by. That will
           toss the pizza to the costumer. If you toss the pizza too far from
           the costumer, you will loose that pizza and won't get credit for
           it. Each level you go up, 1 more costumer will appear. Running out
           of time, getting killed, costumers getting killed, or taking too
           much time off your Pizza Boy Scooter will end your PIZZA BOY trial.
Goal: Complete the Level 10 PIZZA BOY mission.
Prize for Goal Completion: 150 Health
Goal Tips:
  -Do the missions in Vice Point. That area is easier to navigate.
  -Drive slowly so you don't hit a car and run over the costumer.
  -Pull up close enough to throw the Pizza.
  -Use your map to plan your route to your costumers.

-----------------------------------
6. DISTRIBUTION MISSIONS
-----------------------------------
Vehicles Usable: Mr Whoopee
Mode of Activation: Enter the Vehicle
Objective: Sell as many Ice Cream cones to customers during your distribution
           trial. If a Cop sees you selling the illegal Ice Cream, you will get
           a wanted level. You can get up to two stars. If you exit the Mr
           Whoopee, if you get wasted, or if you get busted, you will fail.
Goal: Sell 50 Ice Cream Cones consecutively.
Prize for Goal Completion: $3000 daily salary from the Ice Cream Factory asset.
Goal Tips:
  -Get an Uzi9mm and when you get wanted levels and you see a cop, press
   1(on the number pad)/Q or 2(on the number pad)/E and your doors will lock.
  -Only turn on the Ice Cream music when you are ready to sell. Don't turn it
   on while you are on your way to a certain area.
  -Sell the Ice cream around the Lighthouse area or the Ocean Beach
   sidewalk(not the boardwalk near the street.) Law Enforcer vehicles won't
   wander around that area. Be aware of on-foot cops though.
