I SAID GOOD DAY SIR


Subway tunnels make surviving a bounty trivially easy. Pick a spot near an intersection or similarly crowded on the map and everyone topside will lose their minds looking for you, and murder each other in the process. It starts such a giant poo poo-storm above you. People are going ballistic above me right now in jets just carpet bombing my blip on the map, and three other people have gotten bounties in the mayhem.

Operation acquire a Karim Sultan has so far been a resounding failure. I can't for the life of me get them to spawn anywhere - I spent about an hour driving around Blaine County and by the Prison in Super and Sports class cars and nothing - loads of Asteropes and Futos - not a single Sultan

I found mine up by Sandy Shores around by Trevor's place if that helps. The Sultan is definitely worth it.

edit: Has Rockstar patched up the cargobob picking up vehicles? All of the Cargobobs I have been in wouldn't let me deploy the grapple. Or is this something else you can't do whilst in passive mode?

They always seem to spawn in the parking lot of that motor inn next to the Blaine county mod shop.

You're on PS4 right? Add me and I'll bring mine out, that usually prompts them to spawn up in blaine county. PSN is Tarwedge

I am standing in the prison parking lot right now next to like 3 of them.

Try route 68 too. The road with the mod shop by sandy shores airfield. I just drove along it from the radio dishes towards the mod shop and would see one almost every time.

Can't do it in passive mode, pick up the car then go passive if you want to be a real dick.

Because I love you, I have spent an hour trying to find one.

And I did. I am going to idle in it for a while.

Just as a notice for future Sultan seekers: you can go to the Prison parking lot and just jump sessions until you find one. They spawn in that parking lot, so just keep hopping and you'll eventually get one. Took me five minutes.

After an hour, I just gave up and drove the Sultan I had stored to the prison and found one there. All the other times it wouldn't spawn.

I was having the some problem. Apparently you can't deploy or use the hook in passive mode.

Yeah, it's like someone said earlier. You grab the car in normal mode THEN go passive once you have the car.

You can also climb partway up that giant ladder system to the crane on the side of the unfinished building. If you're ont he ladder area while within the building superstructure, it's impossible for anyone to shoot in at you or up at you, and you can safely mine the ladders leading upwards with proximity mines or sticky bombs to your liking.

Your only vulnerability is someone managing to land on the roof of the sticking out part and successfully toss a grenade down, or to have like 6 people work together and not kill each other to climb up after you faster than you can bomb then.

Doh. That hook simply wasn't visible at all while in passive. Now I need to summon NPC and NPC tank without risking my rear end too bad.

"It's time to choose."

I'm trying to add this job on my PS4 and it says it was added but shows up nowhere in my bookmarked jobs in-game:

http://rsg.ms/e4694cb

Is there some sort of compatibility matrix for Creator jobs? Like can a 360/PS3/XBone-created job work on PS4 or vice-versa?

I'll have you know I worked my fingers to the bone to get where I am today.


At some point after I spent all my money on car upgrades for my third garage, my mechanic tried to get some money out of me but I was flat broke. Now the guy's on strike. Any idea how to get him back to work? I'm currently trying to do some missions and the prick won't even bring me a car. I'm having to hitch a ride with CopperFronts everywhere I go.

You have to wait for an entire game day (48 minutes) to cycle so you can pay him again.

RESALE VALUE, MEIN HERR




Pillbug

Okay, I'm going to play a bit of GTA before bed. Got enough time for one mission, do the random contact mission thing.
Flood in the LS River. Medium difficulty. Full lobby. I say HARD MODE HARD MODE HARD MODE into the mic. Stupid pubbie doesn't listen, launches. Alright whatever. I rush in, start sniping. Pubbies show up, now I have cover fire time to snatch the meth.
Pubbie (the dumbass host) manages to blow my Entity up in the split second I'm out of it. I grab the meth and one of the spawning Cavalcades.
Start heading toward Gerald's apartment, but you know what? gently caress this guy. There's a metro line a block away, I buzz right past the apartment and into the nearest tunnel.
Let's see how far these dickheads will go for $13k. Follow the tunnels until I'm a good distance away. Ditch the Cavalcade at one of the subway stations and call for my Sabre.
By the time it shows up they've finally figured out what's going on and start chasing me.
Took the Vinewood twisties up into the desert, jump the highway and head for Paleto. Somebody dies twice and quits.
Stop and jump out of the car just outside of the town where the NPCs still spawn at ludicrous speed. Other guy quits, it's just me and dickhead now. Perfect. Play in traffic until I'm dead. Meth lands right in the middle of a lane.
The guy was on foot in grapeseed, but manages to grab a car and finish the mission (narrowly missing getting hit on the highway getting the meth, he was too dumb to block the lane with his car).
And this is the kind of poo poo I've been doing since you guys all moved to PS4.

Sniping in that mission is some weak sauce. The only meaningful strategy is to play NPC bowling and drive repeatedly through the center of the meeting place.

Grab a Asteropes in the city and drive out, there were two in the lot on my first trip.

Now all I need is some cash, seems like everything pays some paltry 15k

I am sure a hacker knows all about rewarding and accomplished behavior. I mean, raping a chick with some mickeys is the same is getting laid right? Same result amirite guys? Nothing like work and not having to do it and get that sweet sweet payoff.


Depending when I go to bed, complete my 100% trophy, and then my plat. I can probably host a few good missions, rooftop rumble(?) for easy cash tomorrow. I got a buzzard as well.

I feel bad, I am doing the bare minimum for my plat/100% run. I really wanted to try the peyote, monkey murals, epsilon/kifflom tracts and do the murder mystery thing for michael. (LA noir dlc?)

360 created jobs didn't work on PS3, I can confirm that much. Seems like getting Live and PSN to cooperate at all was just impossible.

What I don't know is if jobs can hop generations, like if 360 jobs work on bone or if PS3 jobs work on PS4.
