Fun with designing your own Utility class GTA race (with all other classes and modes enabled as well, not that I'm going to use them much):




For 360 at http://rsg.ms/abe4ea2

Since the Sadler especially tuned handily beats everything in utility flat out, the course is littered with rockets so that the people who picked Caddies and such can have fun blowing each other up. And if you set the lap count to 4 or 5, you'll lap every other player at least once, sometimes twice, giving you an extra shot at the rewards for killing multiple people and still winning.

I've only ever gotten to race my modded Sadler once and it was so worth it. I joined this British kid who was picking races to try and troll people I guess with weird classes so I smoked him with a modded Compact (Rhapsody) and so he got really pissed off saying I was a loser for having a modded Rhapsody so he made a Utility race and then blew a gasket when I busted it out. Ohhh man that was a fun night.

Hope it's true, but the guy is pretty much unverified and in his se7ensins post was using it more to get people to sign up to his forums where his cracks or whatever will be exclusively available.

I don't doubt that there will be snow and christmas gear like last year and hopefully different than last year. I also hope we can buy and keep them instead of them just being free for a week. I'm hoping for some bad sweaters or shirts that light up like chistmas trees - they will make easy targets.

Edit: That said, here's the new cheater system detection, if true, is attempting to detect those who are able to duplicate cars for quick cash.

If you don't feel like waiting and hunting, they're like $38,000 on SouthSanAndreasSuperAutos.com, and of course that includes the tracker and insurance already bought.

I don't see how they could be anything other than long multi-part missions like the Los Santos Connection which means pubbies will gently caress them up for you 9 attempts out of 10 anyway, and the payouts won't be much or you'll be limited to 1 every x period of time because otherwise shark cards don't get bought.

No matter what they are they aren't going to live up to the hype, people have gotten themselves so wound up about it without even thinking about what they'd actually be getting.

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.

I don't want to do heists with pubbies, and I doubt I even will. It requires a planning stage done at someone's (10 garage?) apartment, quite possibly securing X vehicles, practicing, training.

Then wrapping up by getting into the tram line going underground into La Puerta and waiting for the stars to go, surely.

With all that snow tech they got going on, maybe they could move GTA up north to Washington and maybe have it take place in Seattle, maybe have half the map be in the U.S and then cross the border into British Columbia for the snow stuff.

I read an old post on their support forums, and last gen there was apparently a setting called "player overhead names" that turned it on and off. It's not there on PS4 - weird thing to change, or as you suggest just another bug.

I might have called it the wrong thing - on last gen I *think* it was called something else. The player overhead display is the bank balance and weapons info in the upper right hand corner...I think.

If you need to really get rid of it, resetting to default might not work. I had to go into the application data on the PS4 and delete the GTA 5 file. Unfortunately, the reset all of my settings in-game (game controls, etc), but it worked.

Thanks to the goons that brought up the Sadler! I have been spending today hosting races that allow utility vehicles, much to my amusement. If you have a full room, there is always a few shouts of surprise at the vehicle selection screen, since a lot of people don't bother reading what vehicles are enabled for the race. The rage that ensues on the starting line when you are in a truck and they are on a lawnmower or tractorů that is something else. Many people rage quit the race a quarter of a lap through, but their entrance still counts for the prize pool. I only came across one other person that owned the Sadler in 10 or so races today, however my truck is fully modded, and I don't believe his was, allowing me to edge him out as well. Combine this with a max-bet and hoping someone else bets anything makes for a good time!

I got my Weazel van 4 life.

Anyhow I tried to get the 50 unique stunt jumps done, for the trophy, not so much the paintjob but it appears I have -5/50 (55/0 in stats) of the total completed. I am not sure if the trophy will pop or even the paintjob unlock, but I am trying it again on my main character, but not going to try and mess it up again.

I figured something like this might get patched out, and well, doing 50 easy ones this way is a lot better than getting all 50 in single player.

I also almost have 260k from just messing around, selling cars, and killing lesters target. I'm kind of hoping we can get a new car or something cool for xmas, with the rumored update. Otherwise I will plan to spend 260k on fireworks.

This rear end in a top hat was chasing me down for sport, and after he killed me three times, I did the ol' "plant a sticky in the middle of an intersection and blow it up as he drives over it" trick. Very satisfying since he was in his personal vehicle too.

I earned a new trick today that makes hitting people in cars chasing you easier. When threading through traffic don't stick the C4 on the ground and wait for him to run over it. When you get to an intersection stick it to the back of a car at the intersection. The cars detonate sympathetically and cover a much, much larger area than just the C4. Bonus points, if his car detonates sympathetically you don't have to pay for it, and you can blow up passive players this way. Passive players are immune to your C4 but not the NPC car explosion that it creates.
