I think the US is dumb for not using Celsius

I don't know why everyone feels the need to slam the helicopter down to land. I was doing it one time and said "Hey, could you take it easy with the landing, the helicopter is already smoking." And the guy said "Whatever" and slammed it into the ground. Luckily it didn't blow up, but what the gently caress dude?

Exsqueeze me, why the sour face? I'm here to lemon aid you. Let's juice it.

If it isn't smoking, what's the problem? Even if it is smoking, I don't think the landing struts take damage for the vehicle. You have to plow into the earth to do anything.

I mentioned GTA online to a guy and he said "hows the comp scene?" I laughed for a bit but then remembered there's a a bunch of semi serious racing crews.

but using an aimbot to top the DM leaderboards or maintain a 5.0 k/d is super pathetic and sad considering nobody gives a poo poo.

Nothing! Just a "50/50 bridges flown under" that flashes on screen for like a second. It's not even anywhere in my stats.

To be fair you do have to fly towards the enemy choppers instead of away from them for the gunner to hit them. And the gunner's field of view sucks.

How hard? I already did one east of the military base that has you fly at the bridge from a bad angle, then quickly adjust your flight path, with only a few feet clearance. gently caress that bridge.
I believe you need to do it in single player for it to count on your stats. Like the 25 stunt jumps in multiplayer unlocks a paint color, but doesn't count towards the "do 25 stunt jumps" on your stats/checklist.

Reporting for duty. Choppers, no helmets and leather jackets mandatory. I'd be happy to give the logo a try, even figured out a trick to make patches look more worn, although it doesn't look good on all backgrounds.

Welp, apparently R* didn't like me immediately giving myself more money after they zeroed my bank

So how do you tell how long a GTAO ban is for? I'm not exactly super concerned since i've still got a good backlog of games to work through, just wondering how long I have to miss out on shooting dudes with Goons.

e: Support got back to me, 2 week ban. Cool, that's 2 weeks to run through Torchlight II then

I came back after a week to find a grand total of $20,000 in my bank account.

Guess taking millions in "definitely not shark card money" from other "generous donors" has its downsides.

I am having no luck running heists at the moment; both Fleeca and Prison Break have glitched out hard and necessitated quitting and restarting the heists. The drilling section in Fleeca went wrong, with the locks absolutely tiny and out of place on screen and the drill overheating immediately, while in the Prison heist the alarm was triggering before we got off the bus, meaning we got killed the instant we had control again. Lord knows what Humane has in store for me.

Everything i've been reading says that now the trick is to downgrade your launcher and game to the 1.24 .exe and use one of the earlier mod menus to give yourself cash in a session that way, since 1.24 has no anticheat of any sort. Apparently they did something in a recent patch that makes the anticheat pretty good.

Oh get over it. I honestly find it interesting to see how poo poo keeps evolving re: the modding arms race. It's pretty neat to watch Rockstar adapt and come up with new tactics and then see what the mod guys are doing to work around it.

On a related note, money fuckery now seems to be an insta-ban in 1.28 from what I can tell. Apparently they now flag for certain very specific things, such as spawning certain objects. Money bags and a few others are now detected basically the instant you spawn them in and are very much likely to result in you getting hit with a ban, regardless of whether you're in a Public or Invite Only session. The launcher also now scans the entire GTA V directory and auto-flags if it detects the ScriptHook DLL files, so apparently they're actually really improving the anticheat stuff to a remarkable degree. Curious to see where this goes.

Seems like the key is to get cash from a third party and buy assets with it. They might get banned but you won't, and it seems like they won't take cars away from you, just cash.

I noticed I I haven't seen money drops in a week or so. There was one time around the same time SadiusOmega got banned, but that guy may have been banned an hour later, who knows? Speaking of him, I just found this, which occurred roughly the same time as his ban: https://support.rockstargames.com/h...ker-SadiusOmega

If Rockstar attaches version numbers to their packets that tell the account server that you received $10,000,000, they could easily block those messages so you have to be playing the latest version to have any updates to your character/account processed.

I'm curious if they detect who is spawning the money bags, or if money bags are given an owner (like the explosions that kill everyone on the server). Would get really bad if hackers could spawn money as another player, and get them instantly banned instead.

Oh, that's probably what got me then. I've got a skin editor thing I used to let me get the police outfit on my character and saved in my outfit menu.
