Me. Well, I haven't logged in for a couple weeks, been playing FC4. But I'll probably come back for heists or the PC version, whichever comes first.

So I noticed no one posted the new photos... so here is a loving AIRCRAFT CARRIER and the link...


Edit: gently caress, sizing...sorry. Forgot what the code is to make it a preview.

The question I have is if the aircraft carrier and the yacht are driveable vehicles, or if they can't move and are effectively islands.

A guy ranked 578 in this lobby. Is that genuine? It feels like it's taken forever just to get to rank 33, I can't imagine the hours put into getting to 578.

Never understimate the power of poopsocking. Also it's been ~15 months since GTA:O was released.

E:578 would probably be in the top .01% of players though.

Has anyone seen a hack/cheat/whatever that will allow someone to start racing while the countdown is still in progress? I've done a couple races in the past few days where another participant has started the race at about 2 in the countdown, leaving everyone else. I'm on PS3 if it matters.

I find it fun to prox mine the two exits to the LSC north of downtown when I see someone go in there. One time I had a guy blow up his car going out one exit and then he must have gone right back because he set off the.other one about 30 sec later.

What those tards don't realize is that it pays more to just go complete another mission instead of farting around for 10 minutes.

It would be nice if R* would modify the missions so that more of them had timers. e.g. in Rooftop Rampage, as soon as someone takes the documents (and therefore has sole control of when the mission ends) it should start a 3-4 minute timer. If someone can't get the documents back in that amount of time they're going to fail the mission anyways.

Those missions aren't as annoying, because it's impossible to stretch those missions out unless everyone in the group tries to do it. The annoying missions are the ones where one person has the documents/drugs/money/whatever and then it's up to that person to determine when they return it. Everyone else either has the option to quit and lose out on their money, or stick around with their thumbs up their butts.

Ok that makes sense. I just changed over from PS3 and I never remembered seeing those there. Maybe because most people had finished single player by the time I started playing Online.

But they did though? When they made it all of a sudden earlier last year that you can just gently caress around on jobs for 3 hours and easily make $300,000 no matter what the jobs were as opposed to maybe cranking $120,000 in the same time if you got lucky with Rooftop Rumble invites.

Also, I have an idea for a GTA race, but it requires that racers exit their cars at certain points, by making certain checkpoints inaccessible to cars. The problem is AFAIK there's no way to run the race test in the creator in GTA mode, so you can leave your car. If I can't leave my car in the creator, then I can't complete a test race, and if I can't test it I can't publish it. Am I out of luck, or is there a way around this?

Oh we're posting our GTA:O wishes? In no particular order:

1. A better way to find custom races and other player-made missions in game, instead of having to go through the R* Social Club.
2. A functional casino.
3. A motorcycle stunt course in the stadium ala GTA Vice City. If not that, do something with the stadium so it's more than just an exterior.
4. The ability to turn off mission icons from displaying on the game map. The map is too crowded already.
5. Helipads on the roof of expensive highrise apartments.
6. The ability to race for pink slips.
7. A countdown timer for missions once the penultimate objective is complete, so that players can't artificially extend the time. Or get rid of time-based performance.
8. The ability to have your mechanic move cars between garages with the arrange garage function, instead of just rearranging cars within a garage.
9. No passive mode when in a high priority vehicle. It's pointless to chase anyone in one.

A casino is coming but I don't think Rockstar's ever talked about it. Lester has a few omitted lines about the place, a few patches ago you could glitch into it and walk around the unfinished lobby, and mention of it shows up in the code a couple times. Who knows what they're really doing with it.

I knew about all those, and IMO none of them confirm anything. It could be in a heist. Or it could be the other way around I guess, not in a heist and it's only functional in freeroam. Or it could be both. Not enough info yet.

Just having a hardcore free mode where nobody has name indicators or shows up on the minimap would add so much to the game. Let people see photos of other players if they want to hunt them down, but no more of this constant radar and huge KILL THIS GUY indicators over people's heads in a game where free roam is basically just deathmatch

Maybe have it based off the player's cell phone. If a player's phone is on, their position gets localized to the nearest virtual cell tower (maybe a couple blocks radius in the game?). That way players could hide to some extent but still have to hunt for each other. But start shooting/causing mayhem and their location gets more detailed as they get more stars. If a player has no stars and has their phone off then they'd be invisible in the minimap. Then remove passive mode, as it would have no use any more.

Craptacular

Another set of ideas:

1. Players drop money like NPCs when they die. Not necessarily all of it, maybe just a percentage.
2. No more withdrawing or depositing cash from a cell phone, you have to go to an ATM. Nobody uses ATMs right now. How do you stuff cash into a cell phone, anyways?
3. Make it possible to rob banks in freemode somehow, so not even cash in banks is 100% safe. It would need to be difficult enough to require 4 or 5 people though.

1. Have Lifeinvader mirror R* Social Club content in-game.
2. Do something with the BAWSAQ stock market. Maybe have mission payouts partially linked to it, e.g. if a lot of people do the mission where you blow up a bunch of garbage trucks, then the waste company's stock goes down. If fewer people do that mission, then the company's stock would recover, making it more profitable to do that mission again.
3. Make players pay taxes on cars and properties. If you want 3 apartments and 30 cars you better be able to afford the taxes on them.

So do you guys think we're gonna get any purchasable things next week with the Heists & New Modes/Freeroam Fun Update? Seems like as good a time as any to introduce some new weapons, apartments, and vehicles.

Well there was that apartment customization rumor from a couple weeks ago. It would make sense to add that now, because there'll be a reason for other players to show up at your apartment for heist planning. It's sort of pointless to bling out your apartment if you're the only one who ever sees it.

How about integrating races and crew challenges with the casino, so you can bet on any other races currently happening (instead of just the race you're currently taking part in)?

^^^ I just want to be able to lock on to ground vehicles with the helicopter's missiles and/or also a MASSIVE speed increase on the T.V. camera missiles.


Tax chat actually got me to thinking: I don't think there EVER will be a true casino in GTA:O directly BECAUSE of the shark cards (in the U.S. at least). For the same reason that online poker for cash was shut down by the gub'mint back a number of years ago.

If there was no actual money (via shark cards) tied into the game then yeah they could have just ported over Red Dead Gamblin'. Yes/No/R* Just Lazy?

Discuss.

Would it really be gambling if you can't get real money back out of the system, only put it in?

And the helicopters need a guided TV camera missile like in BF2, where your POV is on the nose of the missile once it's fired. Maybe put it on the Annihilator (the Blackhawk-looking one) because that thing is worthless right now with only machine guns. And maybe make it so only the front seat passenger can operate it, to promote teamwork.
