Previous GTA games included Hidden Packages which were just that, hidden
packages which you needed to find and collect, in order to unlock special
weapons at certain hideouts, as well as money. GTA San Andreas is huge compared
to previous games, and as a result you have a lot more collectables to find.
There's 250 collectable items altogether, and 50 of these are Horseshoes which can
be found hovering around Las Venturas. These are probably the real equivalent to
the hidden packages, as they are icons which you need to walk into and collect. This map will help to
point out the locations to make them a bit easier to find, and alongside this
map, a guide should make them impossible to miss.
Horseshoe Locations Map
Due to the size of this map it cannot be displayed on the same page as the site
template, so you will have to click on the thumbnail below which will open the
full map in a new window. You can then use the scroll bars to make your way
across it. Clicking on a number on the image will pop up with a screenshot of
the location in order to help you find the exact location. Please excuse the
wait while the file loads, due to the quality of the image the size is in the
region of 65kb which may take a minute or so on 56k. If you're still on 56k you
should be shot though :). Use the small radar shown on each screenshot, as well
as their marked location on the map to help you pinpoint the position of the
Horseshoes. I'd advise working through them in order so you don't get lost.
