Well I played a little PS3 GTA Online over the weekend in anticipation of buying the PS4 version, since I hadn't played since 2013. Got the PS4 version all installed and updated last night, went to character transfer aaaand... nothing. Blank level 0 character.

So I logged into my Social Club account to check, and my PS3 character is also now showing as non-existent. gently caress.

edit: vvv Did that, thanks. Anyone go through this and successfully get all their poo poo squared away?

When in 2013 did you last play it? If it was before like late November, it might have been one of the ones straight up lost due to server issues.

Well I played this past weekend on that character, and everything was as it should be. Cars were all there, stats were all there. Nothing out of the ordinary. I have no idea when the last time I played in 2013 was, but everything was there on the PS3 this weekend.

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.

So I can't get on PSN and was just going to do some single player stuff, that's cool, except after playing for like 30 seconds the game instantly pulls up a loading screen and starts loading a new story n the tutorial. What the poo poo.

I feel like the Sultan thing is an in-joke that I don't get. It's a terrible car. The Oracle is objectively better in every possible way as far as 4-door cars go. Is it the rarity or something?

The Sultan is so much better than the Oracle that the comparison is mind boggling. The Oracle has better brakes, and that's it. The Sultan is substantially better in every other way.

I guess I've just never driven a fully-upgraded one, but I've never bothered to get and upgrade one because it's not great on the stats sheet compared to other 4-doors.

Now you have a "mental state" that grows with each malicious action you commit (re: anything against other players), which turns your blip on the map from white through darkening shades of pink and eventually red. It's supposed to make you more of a target, but really it doesn't do much of anything. Shooting cops and blowing stuff up also increases it, but a very tiny amount. It's kind of a non-thing all together.

So for the free sad trombone horn trick to work, you have to drive a vehicle in with an already-modified suspension? I'm asking to see if this will work on cars I already own, since they would have had the stock suspension already purchased before.

Slim Killington
Nov 16, 2007

I SAID GOOD DAY SIR


Specifically, I have a car that already has the stock suspension purchased, but not in use because I have bought a higher suspension. When I switch back to the stock suspension which I already own, therefore don't actually purchase it, the sad trombone horn does not become free. I'll have to try scrolling through the options like above.

I need more PS4 goon mission sprees. I want to get up from 90 to 100 before the heists land. Stop the nightly free roam mayhem and do missions!

Please, everyone feel free to smoke up I might actually win a couple races that way.

Don't worry, as long as I get there you'll never be last. All of my races usually involve a careful and considerate move to 1st, followed by a horrific clusterfuck, then ten minutes sitting at a gas pump pretending to get some gas while the race finishes and I play Dragon Age on another screen.

Maybe this is a stupid question but how do people know where a special crate is going to drop? I usually grab a jet or chopper to get ready for it and by the time the icon appears on the map, somebody's already right next to it.

Slim Killington
Nov 16, 2007

I SAID GOOD DAY SIR


What I meant was I'm flying in the jet or helicopter before it drops, I start all this at the "10 minute" notification. Some people are just where the icon is going to hit before it hits. I figured you could see the plane flying over or something, but I never have.

Best part about heists is we have to spend our own money to finance them! There will be a pubbie run on Shark Cards once they are released - that is my official prediction. Don't buy into the hype, goons.

I've specifically saved a few million bucks so I can bankroll heists for goons when they drop.

Re: nothing to do in the game, I'm kind of at that stage. If people aren't running missions I really lose the desire to play. Free roam goon massacre on the public is usually entertaining for a few minutes for me, but my heart's really never in it.

I'm sitting on a little over 16 million. I'll front the cash for Goon heists but be sure that some assholes won't likely be invited back if they can't to the job. No one can afford to have people gently caress that up over and over at a couple hundred Gs per try.

I don't think it's a good idea the way it is laid out. It's too easy to grief.

Oh yeah, I'm of the same mind. I'd rather have a dependable few people to do them with, with an open invitation to new goons who need money.
