I have a decent amount of video clips to go through from last night alone, I'll probably get those up in the middle of playing tonight. I really hope I have one of the parachute landings into the dinghy.

Oh yeah, final take from doing all the heists in order with all the same dudes from beginning to end:


Started things up on Monday night at ~$1.2M and after all was said and done I finished with $5.3M with having only supplemented that with 3 $25k daily event bonuses.

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.

12 hours of game as f day with goons and one real swell dude were great. The last heist is a hoot (espec that last stage) I look forward to new additions, wow. Worth waiting for? If this is the result of taking so much extra time? Definitely!

e: maybe ten, party-timer said 12. Not the most stable R* servers or connections, they extended it by hours but everything else fine.

The important thing to take away from this is that if you don't do the loyalty and order bonuses, you're gonna get hosed. I made probably half this because of dicking around and doing random setup poo poo with other people.

I don't see it like that. My plan has been to get familiar with the heists and complete them a few times across multiple roles. Then, once I have got gud I will round up those people I am sleeping with play with most often. They will also have got gud. We will then steamroll the heists, running them all across 2 sessions, getting all the bonuses and meeting all the hot ladies.

E: for example, I feel pretty confident that with a well-experienced group the dreaded stealth mission to (heist 3) plant the EMP device should only take 5 minutes not counting initial drive time.

E: for example, I feel pretty confident that with a well-experienced group the dreaded stealth mission to (heist 3) plant the EMP device should only take 5 minutes not counting initial drive time.

My major issue is this: if I want to help someone with a setup or heist mission, I should be able to do that without any person getting penalized. The way it works now, you get nothing for helping on a setup and then moving on, because it only adds to the potential you have to make at the end. On top of that, the others get screwed out of a loyalty bonus. That's lose/lose – I enjoy doing the missions and really like helping out when someone is short a person. That's less of a loyalty bonus and more a straight-up requirement.

As far as getting the missions down, failing them repeatedly has gotten me to a point where I think I can do most of them without failing. The Humane Labs stealth mission I could walk through in my sleep right now. Most of our failures are taking a vehicle from point A to point B, like the Casco or the Lectro bikes on the final heist while the Lost are loving you up – there's just unforeseen poo poo in there like traffic magically spawning on you.

I do also want to do all of them in order again with a dedicated crew going for everything we can get, and I want to host them as well.

Well yeah, agreed.

Slim Killington posted:

Well, you get a standard mission payout of 20k which is something. For the most recent heist I did, the heist leader (CopperFronts) was nice enough to give up his cut entirely to help out his low-level friend. I got ~80k in setup payouts, about 150k in heist payout, and another 100k for the first-time bonus. 330k isn't the best payout for 3 hours of play but I'll take it.

I guess changing sessions can cut the wait time down to 10-15 minutes, worth trying if you're looking to get through many in a night. Of course once they're done you can just call for a replay and it's all moot.

You've got to know the rules before you can break 'em. Otherwise, it's no fun.

Trip report for the fully modded Casco: This appears to be the sport classic I have been waiting for all my life. Controllable without nearly as loose of an rear end as the Coquette Classic but still with gobs of acceleration. I haven't spent all that much time with it yet but I'm definitely using it in my next Sports Classic race if I can to get a feel for it. It's rear wheel drive with a good weight balance so you can weight transfer in it and keep it's rear end in line. I really like it. It also sounds angry when modded, which is good for bonus points.

Also it's loving sexy.

I played a match of Come Out and Play that was really enjoyable. Being a hunter sucks because I'm awful at drivebys but trying to make it to safety on foot was amazing, even in first-person. The pubbie host was also a runner and he was like "keep going, man, I've got your back." I snuck between buildings but would have to stop at intersections to assess whether I was in shotty range before making a mad dash and hopping a fence. When I finally made it to the Vanilla Unicorn and safety I felt like the Final Girl at the end of a horror movie, which I think is the feel they were going for. Also the Adversary Mode costumes are pretty funny, my fave is the stupid vampire masks and a tuxedo
