I've seen fun you people wouldn't believe.
Tiki torches on fire off the summit of Kilauea.
I watched disco balls glitter in the dark near the Brandenburg Gate.
All those moments will be lost in time, like crowds in rain.

Time to sleep.

I grabbed a Buzzard, the armored Kuruma, and 100k in shirts. The rest I just want to make sure sticks around for when I do eventually unlock all the other fun heist stuff.

In almost 14 years here I've never had my avatar changed by someone else, other than I was about 30th in line for a (frankly, rather uninspired) pony avatar. I feel left out.

Is there any way to force Lester to send you the next heist setup? I finished the prison break as heist host last night, but after an hour Lester still hadn't sent me the next one. I tried connecting to a new session, restarted my PS4, played a couple missions, but nothing helped.

For anyone selling Rebels, there's a newer refined method.
Start by buying wheels>high-end>stock>shadow for around $8k
Buy musical horn 5 for free
Buy jazz loop horn for free
Sell for a little over $60k for $49k profit each time.

Two tips for the wise:

2. If there's someone hanging around your neighborhood you don't know, shoot him.

This doesn't seem to work for me as described on PS3 (I get charged for both horns) but if I just buy the wheels and then sell, it will still sell for ~$35k which means a ~$24k profit.

I hope the Rebel glitch works when I get home. I'm flat broke after buying the jump jet.

Overall thoughts:
  • The final heist is a lot of fun, probably the best multiplayer mission in the game. But the payout is $1.25 million, which is incredibly too low. That should be the cut for each person.
  • An entire heist (Trevor's) is terrible. It's essentially replays of missions from single player, and not even fun ones at that.
  • Maybe this is greedy of me, but I expected more of them for this long of a wait. At least 2-3 more.
  • Replay value is probably not gonna be great once everyone's done them all a few times.
  • The new Pegasus vehicles are awesome. The new normal vehicles are forgettable.
Time to start over and get some of the bigger challenges.

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.

Savage costs $1.950.000 and I recommend it. Armour out of paper, mad firepower, sick rocket spam, beats the hell out of everything in firepower, requires fat pilot skills to compare to other air vehicles in survivability.

That's near 2 mill or 45 Rusty Rebel tricks

Because it's not enough money over time to be worth laundering? It's great for short term purchases of clothes, masks, vehicle upgrades or a vehicle itself (or even several vehicles). If you think you're going to make enough in the short term to fill a few garages will Adders.... have fun. ~1 hr to get ~650k (I think digitalprophet mentioned this) and you're going to do this for a nest egg? If you're that worried about R* taking your money, you might as well play the game.

The laundering bit in GTA really was only good for a 1-time thing and that was when they shut down the game for a day to reset everyone's money. Everyone knew this was happening and everyone was told that R* would not take away any items purchases with that money. So extra garage spaces and alt character garages were filled with Adders to have a nest egg of ~6 million+.

R* hasn't shown to care about a few million here or there. At the time of the later glitches, nobody had anything to lose once the first people didn't get slapped on the wrist by R*. Players were using known loopholes in the game code, not altering the game code itself. There are rumors that R* have detections in place to flag your account should you make an excessive amount of money in a short period of time, but between all the glitches that have been used since they removed all the excess money from the game. I don't think anyone had seen any consequences and it might just be that - a rumor - or aimed to be rolled out later because they know the PC modding crew will be tougher to control.

Can we just start measuring things in Rebels? It's better.

"I want an insurgent, but it's 20 rebels."

Re: the prison heist for anyone having trouble inside. The best strategy we found last night is to keep the plane and the demo right at the air strip and between jets spawning, I'd stay at the border of the prison and lock on to anyone outside on the grounds. It seemed to make a noticeable difference to the ground team. Just don't get in too close--you'll get rocketed out of the sky.

It's pretty much a Buzzard with the Lazer's nose gun and no reload timer on its missiles, but at the expense of being bigger, heavier and having no co-pilot missiles. It's amazing

I'm not following I think. When we did that I was the Pilot and me and the Demo figured out the jets pretty quick and I was always able to land the plane in the airfield before the prisoner and guard got back no problem. Plane follows behind jets, demo blows them up with the Buzzard, rinse repeat until the ground crew comes out of the prison and then the jets go away.

Wait, are you saying the demo should clean up at the prison while waiting for jets? In that case just have the pilot follow one jet and do that the whole time.

Then just buy whatever you can before they take the money away. Unless you're saving up for something there's no reason to hold onto the money, and if you are saving up you're better off laundering it.
