I noticed this thing. People do seem to talk about nasty smell when I bump into them or get close. Some are pretty direct:

"You smell like sh!t sir!"

I overheard similar insult with spanish accent with puto at the end. Some are indirect, such as woman exclaiming:

"What's that awful stench?!"

I wonder if this is actually directed at CJ. If it is, is it indication of some stat, such as low sex appeal? Can I fix it? Or is it just random talk?


According to a Gamefaqs thread on the matter, there are 3 ways to fix this:

  1. Go swim in the ocean;
  2. Go save your game;
  3. Equip a fresh set of clothes.

    No showers in this game? Jul 18 '16 at 14:27

    @ShadowWizard Considering the fact that SA includes dating and even a hidden mini game where you actually sleep with women, the ability to shower would have definitely not been out of place.

    @Fiksdal so probably shower is not exciting enough, same way most games don't include toilets. Jul 18 '16 at 15:15

    @ShadowWizard Haha.. That would have been great, though. There could be like a "dump-meter" on the screen that keeps increasing, eventually forcing you to go. You don't want that to happen in the middle of a mission :)

    Like Maxis's The Sims - there is a bladder pressure meter and if you don't use the toilet youwill wet yourself. Jul 19 '16 at 1:07
