They're like two suicide notes stuffed into a glitter bra



I just lost a car, I think that the 3rd property could be messing up the overflow storage system that was added in 1.16.

I found a Phoenix out in the wild and decided I wanted to keep it, so I put it in the garage where I keep the muscle cars. That garage was full, but the other 2 weren't. The game asked if I wanted to move a car to storage, so I did. I figured I would call it up out of storage and put it in one of the other garages, but there's no Storage option when I call the mechanic. It also isn't in any of the garages.

It was only a Futo, but it was fully upgraded. rip futo

Spent a good chunk of the day doing snow races w/ GlitterBob n crew, first and only time I've actually had 30 people in a 30 person race. It was bonkers to say the least!

If you thought pubbies couldn't drive before, oh ho ho, this is easy money. Managed $25,600 and ~5k RP per >24 person race or so. Had to do 3-5 laps tho.

I managed to kill a rando with the fireworks launcher, unfortunately it was during the daytime and through a pine tree

I wish they'd add snow as a weather option for races year round!

also 360 and snow (aka "darkness") continue to look kind of like poo poo, but it's been bad at anything dark in gtao since launch.

Ran that second mission with a guy who's never done a Martin mission because it gave us the GTAO intro cutscene afterwards. So I taught him where to get the Lazers and let him fly one first before I took off. I hope he had fun

also Rockstar did not make Martin's shoes make snow footprints in the cutscene, IMMERSION DESTROYED. loving cheap hacks, Rockstar!!!

I'm not sure you can actually buy it online, at least I couldn't find it. But head over to Sandy Shores and the best bet is that long road on the lake side.

If you can have more than one user on a ps4 (can you?) couldn't you just sign in with your old psn and play gta on that account?

Head to the northernmost mod shop (i think it's northernmost, its the one that isn't a Los Santos customs up in blaine county) and check the houses directly north of it, I have without fail found a sultan there every time I've gone looking for one with a friend.

You haven't lost anything. You could just use your old PSN on your new PS4 for GTA:O to continue your old character. The only possible way it might work with your new PSN is if you can change the PSN account linked to R* Social Club, and I don't know if that is possible.

Edit: you only need one PS+ account on a PS4 in order to play online. However, if you let your old account lapse then you will lose access to all of the PS+ games you have accumulated.

The following won't mean poo poo if you can't control your car. Find the best cars for you in each class. They each drive differently so find one with which you feel comfortable. Which to start with? This is covered in the second post of this thread. But don't let that be a definitive list. None of these "rules" will do you well for a race in which pubbies play king of the mountain and constantly try to rear-end you, use the PIT maneuver against you, race the track in reverse or just simply exist, or a race with traffic and constantly altering your drivelines, but they can help in the grand scheme of racing.

  • Don't race with pubbies.
  • Learn by doing more technical races (throttle control, cornering, basic control of your vehicle) you wont' find these by R* or even ones that are Verified. The ones that get verified are the easy ones or the ones that cause the most mayhem. I like a lot of the crew made races and I try to make my races more technical with few straights and more hairpins and quicker tighter turns which are more than 100 degrees.
  • Look at the map while the lobby joins up. (Square PS4 / X Xbone). Unless you've raced the map before you can guess what you're in for. The only lovely thing R* doesn't do is show you the direction of a lap race.
  • Learn how to corner and attack a turn (see images below). Do this both solo and with others so you can properly overtake an opponent. The Forza guys will recommend an 80s video with a bald guy wearing daisy dukes. The video is very informative, but 90 minutes long. R* may have rear end in a top hat physics but they're pretty decent when it comes to racing.
  • I hate slipstreaming personally, but can appreciate it because when it is on for a race it doesn't guarantee victory if you're only a few car lengths ahead, or if you win because of it you can incite rage from the would-be-winner. That you can slipstream from 25 yards away is completely hosed up. "Oh, you can't turn? Well, on the straights you can make all that up from so far back".
  • Don't hold the throttle at max unless you're sure of a straight. Especially don't hold it at max while going into turns. 90% of accidents happen in turn 1 (actually make that every turn) because of this. Pubbies hold that throttle so intensely it's miraculous that they haven't broken their controller yet. This also goes into changes in elevation as your vehicle can easily take flight with a sudden drop in elevation causing problems if there is a turn soon after. Also going up a steep hill into a turn can easily be a ramp and send you off course.
  • Don't break while you're in the turn. Breaking while in the turn is how you spin out plus you can lose a lot of speed / momentum.
  • Do break before turning into a tight turn. The old adage when taking turns (especially tighter turns) is the slower you seem to be taking the turn, the better your race line and apex probably are. However, the majority of street races (in which Super cars are always chosen by a pubbie host) they feature a lot of room to move and wide sweeping turns. You most likely don't have to break, but may have to let up on a throttle just a tad so you don't lost control or sail wide.
  • Find the apex and hit it correctly so you're accelerating out of the turn. For example, you might shave 0.1 / 0.2 seconds (or more) off of each turn, over the course of a 10-15 turn lap that can turn into a 1-3 second lead, just from knowing how to corner. If you do this correctly you will notice the difference in velocity as you exit the turn.



And a tighter, hairpin turn:



Or a more complex hairpin:
