Actually managed to do a handful of full lobby 30 player races w/ GlitterBob last night, I wish having that many people in a lobby was more common. All they really need to do is let us wait in the lobby for another minute or two

10 laps, wanted levels on, custom compacts, at the airport. Hilarious mayhem!!!

GlitterBob, when are you gonna plug a mic in and hang w/ the cool kids?!

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



Okay, story time, since literally no one from the crew besides me is online on PS3 and I'm waiting out a mission payout.

Last week, we had a small group racing that included me, Malakai / Hugh Malone, and (I believe) Zinzninznzniznznizninc / Otiosely. We were racing with one of Malakai's friends from another crew. During a GTA race, Malakai managed to somehow jack the other guy's car. The other guy was like "fine, I'll take your car".

Malakai says "Hey, that's a hacked car, it has turbo. It's glitched, though, you have to hold down triangle to get the boost". The guy did.

Holding down triangle respawns you at the last checkpoint. We laughed, well, that's my story.

I barely play races so wait until some master race maker like Malakai or one of his friends signs on to really hear about that but from just the gimmicky not serious at all races there are some really drat fun ones like races where it's basically an obstacle course around a race track with missiles flying everywhere and hay bales and general madness. Longer races with ramps jumping over and between highways and plenty of fun. I think if you're looking for races specifically using prop placement it's gotten a lot better for the next gen (current gen?) because I heard I think they opened it up a bit and added more objects that can be placed. I think for PC if they keep that trend up then you'll be in even better shape.

Thanks for the nice rundown!

I have a ton of cool races bookmarked on PS3 that came from hugh malone or his friends in GCCC or other racing / creator crews. Plenty of multi-story ramps that carry you over a couple of city blocks, rooftop jumping, mid-air hotwheel tracks, corkscrew backflip ramps, wall-riding, and a host of technically-sound medium-hard tracks that will help develop your skills as a driver.

However, building a lot of those props, huge ramps, and midair platforms relies on glitches in the content creator which may or may not be possible on current-gen or PC.

So does the passive mode icon not show if you're in a vehicle? This guy is in a plane and is a blood red dot but is invincible? Is this an issue with the icon not showing or is he abusing an invincibility glitch?

There's a passive mode glitch for Xbone/PS4 where they don't look passive but they are and can inflict damage. Seems to work in vehicles and on foot. Something about switching to SP as you switch into passive mode while you are a passenger in a car in online.

Or it might not be working. The dot isn't always passive when they clearly are.

Fly plane/heli below building and tree lines and watch as their MANPAD struggles to lock on due to terrain interference. I've literally been shot down only once when in my buzzard and that's cause I was dicking around and flying too high.


My new favorite bug is that the little speaker in my PS4 controller won't tell me when I'm being locked on to or that a missile is flying at me unless I literally look backwards at the missile flying at me - holy poo poo that defeats the purpose...

For what it's worth, when I went to the Mask store and used the hats section, all the hats i hadn't collected or bought during previous events were sitting there to "purchase" for free. No special crate catching needed.

I think he was especially mad because I left proxies on his car

What I can't believe is the sheer number of mercs there were. I thought it was 3-4 jeeps worth but at least a dozen must have appeared even before you quit shopping.

Passive mode also doesn't display while you're in a vehicle, you look like a regular dot. While I was in passive mode the other day, someone called a mugger on me and was successful. This action by the pubbie may have been sparked by leaving proximity mines on Simeon's garage about 10 minutes earlier and he decided to hunt me down.

That is like a cruel joke on the part of Rockstar. They "fix" passive so you can actually use it but then make it so no one else realizes you're untouchable until they are literally on top of you. Prior to everyone jumping on last night, I was in a clothing store and there were two guys outside shooting the hell out of me not realizing I was in passive.

So, what other dorks will be on tonight? My two year old has bronchitis so the cashcamden family will be hunkered down tonight ringing in the New Year at home.

I just ran a 2 lap race of "Slip 'n' Slide" and it is 1000% more frustrating in the snow than on wet mud. It was so bad that the pubbie I was running it with rage quit after he kept spinning around trying to get around a corner. I had an off-road sultan and it still took me 7 minutes to finish it.

so in GTA SA my favorite cars were the buffalo and the sultan

I'm getting this on the PC, just curious how those two cars are for driving around in

I'm guessing the buffalo is kind of subpar since I haven't read anything about it, but the sultans are good to upgrade etc

There are two Buffalos - the Buffalo S is the car that Franklin has in SP and is more powerful than the regular Buffalo though neither are anything special. The S wasn't available in online until recently but you still don't see them around much.

The Sultan is pretty much the best car in the game for free roam and missions. Holds its own in racing I suppose (it is considered sports) if you know how to drive it well (I don't).

This makes me wonder, do the prox mines have a maximum effective range? Like, could you plant em on Simeon's garage and then drive all the way out to Sandy Shores or Paleto Bay before someone got close enough to set them off?
And for that matter, do sticky bombs have a determined range?

I haven't tried in a while but I know for a fact that stickies used to have unlimited range, and I assume they still do. Before Pegasus vehicles despawned I used to park a Buzzard in the city with a sticky on it, then detonate it when I get the "We regret to inform you that someone has stolen your vehicle" mesasge. I have detonated a Buzzard that was at the airport while being in Paleto Bay before and gotten a kill out of it.

Probably... this is what sparked it - and I proximity mined cashcamden with the HPV at the beach while sitting in my house up in the hills.

Pre-order. And some vendors (like if you bought directly from PS4) also may have added an extra 100-150k to the mix.

Aurain - did you get the 500k for Franklin in Single Player?
