Also, I think I've got a good gimmick to mess with pubbies who have mics. Convert them to The Epsilon Program! Just dress in light blue, clean yourself up a little bit and spread the good word of Chris Fromage to the criminal underbelly of Los Santos.

In on my way home from the pub but last night was good goon times, I was glad to shoot some pubbies with the Buzzard's slow rear end missile camera, and Horse Factory with vans was an amazing disgrace (gently caress you clown vans).

Ohh, extra wild animals would be amazing.

My favourite thing about it was the screams of disappointment from the people who tried to take the tunnel round the east side of mount chiliad, only to find the southernmost entrance blocked off by boards. There are a couple of points I blocked off major / obvious roads to try and encourage panic driving.

I should really polish it off and link it so you guys can do a next gen version, because I am a poor with only an Xbox 360 to my name.

And doubly so if you are playing with idiots-if they suck at the game I just end up solo-speedrunning the mission while they gently caress about, and if they're just general dickheads that don't suck I "suffer a tragic fate" and go make a sandwich while they make me money.

Really wish there was some kind of "lock pick" stat or something.

It's bad enough that there are multiple types of Lazer with different HUDs but good lord could my guy please stop smashing the glass in?

Imagine how much more sad and lonely we would be if not for the hard work of lowtax. Here's $12.95 to his aid.

For those of us who didn't grind levels nor money, the best way to speed it up is seriously to endlessly run missions, forget about going to lobby until you've had enough, focusing on 1player minimums that you know are doable and trying to avoid lengthy races. Doesn't harm to keep the cops after you and have a lengthy five-star standoff before finishing the last step (going to location/turning in item). Did 58-60 continuing my audiobook binge in under two hours.

Macklin, you son of a bitch

The Simeon stuff actually pays decently now so if you set it to hard you can solo them and still make decent money and RP.

Another thing I thought of is if you are able to find a wall breach (check YouTube) you can hide out in one with a five star wanted level and gain RP while you evade the police. I can't recall how much you get, but it you just keep killing police while you're hidden, you won't lose the wanted level.

They seem to have fixed a few of the wall breaches from last gen, so I'm not sure what's left.

If you're interested in levels more than money, running races by yourself is a pretty good way to earn RP. There are plenty of custom races that will reward two or three-thousand RP and take about 4 - 6 minutes.

To compare, many popular missions only give about 1200 RP before kill / objective bonuses and take 6 - 15 minutes.

I like running violent duct and I think Cambrio something for simeon, since they are pretty easy and fast, and reward some decent money/rp if you wait around long enough, or just take your time.

I bought GTA 5 for PS3 the day it came out and did pretty well at the single player. I created an online character but didn't play very long or whatever and only got to rank 7. I know I was gifted a large amount of money from R* or something because I have a 10 car garage, but I bought this for PS4 recently and have mainly just been playing online and my goodness, this game is super fun online. A couple issues with connectivity, but overall pretty enjoyable. Last night I was trying to play some cat and mouse by just getting bounties put on myself.

Maybe I'll post in the crew thread but for now I'm having fun just being a silent pubby.

Musket? A long reload but I don't believe the shot is exploding, though it is a 1 hit kill, I think.

If they're duped, you can downgrade to a 2 car garage, and the game will put 8 of them into storage. You can have the stored cars delivered to you by the mechanic and you should be able to sell them at an LSC. The remaining two you can get rid of by driving another car up to the doors and replacing them.

I found it works for the ones at the bottom of the list, but the top one or two don't sell.
I think you can get the remaining two to sell if you rearrange the garages and move them to another one, but you might have to just blow them up / replace them.

Had it happen on Horse Factory when all-motorcycles. Was unable to get far enough for GTA mode to even activate ("bwomp" and screenflash of weapons becoming active) on the maps I tried to make, may have bugged something out though, all checkpoints rendered on the map but never in the actual game, nor did they work.

No idea what happened there.
Owned weapons are always available to the player in GTA races.

MrLonghair posted:

A triathlon would be fun to design!


I did one and could not find a way to prevent people from using their bicycle for the final running portion. Even if the last checkpoint before the running portion requires the player to climb out without a bicycle, I found most people left their bicycle outside the checkpoint area and reclaimed it.

If you make bicycling the last portion, you could force the players off the bicycles at the starting grid and place the next checkpoint across a body of water like the Alamo sea. Just place it far enough away from shore to have a decent run.

Then at the last checkpoint they can respawn with their bicycle and ride to the finish.

Or you could mess the order all up, just start out on bicycles, ride to the shore, swim across and then run to the last checkpoint. That would be the easiest thing

Croccers posted:

You can force weapons to Pick Up only for GTA Races in the hosting menu I believe. I like making silly bike races so I tend to force sawn-offs and regular pistols, using AP pistol/SMG as the out-of-the-way super powerup.

There's no way to prevent players from using their own weapons in GTA races (edit: with cars, have no clue about bicycle races)

Given you need to have other pays who aren't shite, I find playing survivals is a good way to level up and get money. At level 130+ I still level up once during a match and of course get 30k after finishing. You can do it pretty fast depending on the team.
