Yeesh, still? I didn't do anything besides port my character for basically this reason. Plus I really wanted to replay single player. The limit is high enough not to have to prune people from LLJK, right?

What are the pro solo missions to do these days? Trash Talk and Mixed Up With Coke are still quick and easy with the chopper. It looks like the crystal clear out I always did is gone, and doesn't rooftop Rumble suck now?

Also I never got any straight up errors but it would take forever to load after finishing a mission, is that just how it is?

Is anyone missing the Dresses list in their closet? I can't find mine, and the only way to put a dress on is to go the store and do it. Really annoying.

Yep, although sometimes after a mission my character just respawns with it on

Trick?

Uhh, get in your tank, move yellow car, blow up the other cars, kick back take some and enjoy 15+ minutes of cop-roasting, tank-smashing fun. Then when you're done, kill yourself and use the extra life to deliver the yellow car to Simeon in piece.

Yeah but wasn't I supposed to get some mega payout? I might as well have just done Trash Talk or Mixed up with coke in 1/3 of the time.

Something that doesn't require me to have a bunch of nerd friends to play at exactly the same time as me, which is basically impossible for me as an over-employed old person. I hated organizing raids in Destiny.

But you can already do that with a ton of missions that were always in the game. And they always, always said heists were about group-based multi part missions.

Ha! Had this exact thing the other day.

I sent out more friend requests and added myself to that PS4 list in the OP, hopefully now I can make some headway into the Trevor heist. Every attempt at the boat mission was ruined either by no one joining or 12 year olds who can't understand "don't stand there and let people shoot you".

I did some contact missions with a couple low-level pubbies the other day and felt like a god. For example, Mixed Up With Coke, they'd get killed before I got back to the construction site in my Buzzard.

A pubby joined a heist mission with a $9000 bounty. Ordinarily I refrain from shooting people once we all spawn somewhere after a mission, but he was particularly useless, so...

I just got invited to the group and I want to make sure to be a good member. Anyone have a quick list of things that "pubby" players do that I should avoid? In general I try not to be a dumb rear end unless it is understood by all members playing AND is funny.

Are you older than 10? Do you have at least a vague understanding of how this game works? If so, you're ahead of a ton of pubbies.

geeves posted:

Most pubbies think they are well defended in it. And most of us have no problem destroying them with stickies, rpgs, homing missiles, etc.

Which does cost $6600, though, which some people might care about.

I had a pubbie try to blow me up in mine with a sticky bomb but he ended up blowing up himself and his own vehicle with it instead.

I'm worried about it getting nerfed because between pubbie slaughter and contact missions it's really unbalanced and fun.

Is the Savage more fun than the Buzzard? I've got $5 mil with nothing really to spend it on. It wouldn't be for free roam so much as contact missions where you actually can lock on to stuff.

Whatever happened with that contest for someone to win a real-life Banshee? There were pictures of it, it was real, and I assumed that whoever won it was going to immediately sell it since they likely couldn't afford the taxes on a 6-figure car.

That happens (to me at least) on PS4 fairly often so I think it's just network wobbles or R* problems rather than anything malicious. Though sometimes I do get stuck in a lobby where I'm the only player, and trying to join any other session or job hosted by someone else will fail, and the only way to fix it is to quit/rerun the game.

For some reason whenever I try to play the game using suspend/resume from GTA single player, it will put my in lobbies entirely by myself until I quit the game completely and start over.

That was a major selling point when they advertised GTAO. They said you could rob a bank or a store with your friends and you had to get back to your safehouse before other people on the server got to you to steal the money. Then it turned out you couldn't do that and it took a year and a half to add one the biggest features of the game.

Eh, that kinda cuts both ways. Sure you can say they wanted to eliminate people getting tons of money from a single kill but I think it would have been annoying as gently caress to have to go to an ATM all the time or risk losing a lot of money.

More than enough to get started. Admittedly I don't know if there's any gameplay difference between offices but you can get the cheapest office for 1 million without upgrades and then the small warehouse for about 250 - 500k. Which is enough to get started. I moved 2 crates and got about the same as a sightseer mission for slightly more time, but more enjoyable too.

I can live with that. I have about $4 million and haven't really bothered to buy many vehicles.

LOL at them making "remove guns from your loadout" a paid in-game upgrade feature, how very capitalistic of them.
