Quality OP.
Looking forward to some nutso sessions with the LLJK crew. If we have even half the crazy shenanigans that the old 360 WEZL crew had, it will be glorious.
Who want to go on a drunken first person store robbery streak this weekend?

Besides issues connecting/staying connected to crewmates, both online and SP have worked pretty much flawlessly for me. I can connect to online sessions pretty much every time, but they most often don't include crew.... and if they do, they usually don't last long in the session before they get disconnected.
I must be lucky.
And I hope I didn't just jinx it.

My absolute favorite time playing GTA Online was the night a bunch of WEZL relentlessly hunted down two twerps with a Nazi swastika as their crew emblem.
Felt good. We need more of that.

Also, chalk me up as another who has yet to see a tank online except for the one I brought out briefly to test it's first person view.

What is its FPV?

Also, not that I saw many of them on the last gen, but has anybody seen an armored truck?

Crew challenges are also grayed out for me

The FPV is more or less down the barrel, sadly not a badass interior view. And now that you point it out, I don't think I've seen an armored truck either....

The vitriol spewing from those guys was uh, something else. I've never heard a black dude tell a white dude he was going to go get one of "his" nooses and string said white guy up.

I also like when he called you bird poo poo. Another good one.

To be fair, the noose comments came after Quicksand_Jesus' comments about going get his white hooded robe on.

And some of the stuff they were coming up with, like school shootings? Jee-zus. I don't think anyone from LLJK will be 'down with' the BLOK any time soon.

Edit: The main rear end in a top hat would have been fun to trade kills with had he actually stopped spewing stupid poo poo. He had some pretty decent skills. Better than me by a metric mile. Just would not shut up.

Yeah, I've started doing this off and on recently for a tidy cash/rp bump. Getting paid for going nuts and than having Simeon at the end saying "That was interesting" makes me happy.
And I finally got lvl 100 doing a couple runs the other night, so that was nice. I've basically unlocked all I want, as I doubt if I'd ever use the minigun online.
However, the Dubsta and RPG were welcome unlocks.

Am I able to save my video clips to an external HD? What format it have to be? God forbid anything be plug and play this day in age.

I've had no issues saving clips to USB storage, but it was by moving them over manually in system storage.

On the other hand, Facebook and YouTube uploads always fail for me, but the failed process still saves my trimmed clips just fine. Which is still handy if I'm transferring them to a USB stick anyway.

I bought it, it's a zippy, very manoeuvrable little thing with which you can carry 3 passengers--two of whom are on the side pontoons I believe. (Not sure, haven't tried that yet)

If you want the full 10-car apartment, I'd say Alta St would be the best choice, right around the corner from the big downtown ammunation, not too far from LSC, and directly down the road from the airport if you want to get your airplane on. Also the cheapest 10-car apartment with a view that isn't the side of another building at $223k (there's a cheaper one in the same building but that's only $10k less)

If you just want a garage though, there's a 10-car one over on the east side of town, Popular St Unit 2 I think, that's literally a 5 second drive from the eastern LSC. That's $142k

These are exactly what I have for properties, and both work perfectly for me. Alta St is also close to Mors if need be as well. And from one property to the other is a quick jaunt across a bridge.

It was neat, if you were logged in when they turned it on, it went from clear one second to BAM SNOW EVERYWHERE the next second right when you were driving. Same thing in reverse when it was over.

It's a crazy amount of detail to turn on for two days a year and have on the disk.

What time did that actually happen? I'd love to bear witness to the changeover.
Also, I really liked the snow last year, but wish it lasted a little longer than it did.

I feel like I've actually been on a Safari sponsored by Google now. Well done.

Last night a bunch of us were in a room with a young kid who told us he was LA Reid's son. When we of course laughed at him, he told us to "look it up on Safari" so we wanted to know why his dad was on a safari.

We just messed with him on and off for awhile. Then he told us he was a YouTube streamer...lots of hilarity. It was a good night for my voice chat to be stuck on "everyone".

It was funny how he went from resigned frustration, to anger, to shrieking like a five year old, and back around again. All the while not cluing in about 'Safari'. And the multitude of LA, Read/Reid and YouTube streaming comments was loving hilarious.
His begging of us to leave him alone near the end all the while was really almost sad. I wish he had joined the races with us.

Speaking of which, I got hung up on the exit screen, I had to literally turn off the PS4 to get out of it.

If you want to just race each other I wouldn't butthurt at all if you asked me to gently caress off because I race a lot. I'm not sure I wasn't hurting the enjoyment of races for you guys.

I don't mind at all, don't be ashamed for having some slick racing skills. I'm reaching for anything but last place since I am fully aware of how horrible my racing is, so you're not hurting my fun at all.
And good point about the proximity mines, they could really mess up a race but again, they might make for a really interesting one if the right person got creative in the map editor.

While it could be poopsocking, it's more likely a product of the DNS hacks that were going around early in the year. One kill would level you up a huuuuge amount and drop millions in cash. Rockstar revoked most everyone's hacked cash, but left the hacked levels alone.

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.

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?

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.

I did it last night on an unmodified Baller I found on the street. Simply scrolled through all the suspension options without selecting one, went into horns and the trombone was free. I think it then sold for 22k.
