Watch_Dogs 2 did an excellent job of combining multiplayer and singleplayer so I would like to see more of that. For instance, if you got a wanted level in your singleplayer game, it would send a player after you from his singleplayer game. From the second players perspective, an enemy hacker organization is trying to get away from some poo poo and you have to stop him
that reminds me, the dark souls invasion stuff was so cool

The new Slamtruck is the most form over function vehicle Rockstar has ever released. The thing drives like absolute poo poo, does not corner or stop, and will just spin the tires endlessly.



Looks cool as gently caress though. Shame that you can't actually haul cars with it despite it being a ramp truck

You think they could put the same hook mechanism the cargobob has on the bed. Drive a car up the ramp and it 'clicks' into place.

Weirdest thing... I bought it yesterday because of course I did... and after I upgraded it, took it out for a spin. I swear it had hydraulics. I played with them a bunch to see if I could do anything cool.
They were the slow hydraulics like the donk has.

Today I log in and theyíre gone! No hydraulics on the truck at all. My character just keeps ducking like an rear end in a top hat... wtf ??


E: donk, not sink

It is supposed to have the same hydraulics as the donk.

As for why they can't get tow trucks to work online, I don't know. Whenever modders spawn tow trucks they get very glitchy, especially if you turn them into a tow truck centipede as players are wont to do. De-sync does bad things to the game's physics.

The Cargobob barely works and has been broken at times in the past, and you can't even chain them.

It does have the limited hydraulics like the DONK. Up down and some lean but not really bounce

Driving it I was flashing back to the 20 minutes I owned the drift Yosemite yikes itís bad

Have to laugh that the back isnít even a ramp itís more of a flatbed

as far as I can tell the vehicle's only reason to exist is for car collectors to pose for photos with their car on the back

Does the Discord cover PS4 players? Just recently got back into GTAO. Purchased the starter pack and redeemed the twitch prime thing to kinda help me out.

Right now im just doing smaller missions to get my rank up as well as save money.

I just did it for PS4. So I dunno if it will carry over to my PC account. But once I get it I will be sure to link it and hope it works out.

E- Downloading on PC now. Gonna have to get another SSD the coming weeks so I can really not worry about load times. But the hard drive I have now is good enough. Can someone PM me the discord?

E2- Joined Discord and found out you can link both PS4 and PC to the same twitch account. So once I get started and completed the tutorial I should be good to go.

SSD won't actually help with the long part of the online load time.

The way to minimize that is to load directly into Single Player and go to Online from there, rather than loading straight into Online on game launch.

I know that sounds stupid, because it is, but it saves like 5-8 minutes of waiting.

So yeah I had to start over on GTO. But it wasn't a big deal. On PS4 I was rank 15 with some properties. Kinda wasted 20 bucks on the PS4 but it will carry onto the PS5 once I get my hands on it.

Had some people on the discord help me rank up. But sadly I got too tired to get past 4.

Edit: The only thing I dislike is the same frame rate caps I get online is the same on the PS4 in certain situations. I am guessing its because of the lobby and the game using the lovely P2P. Either way the game runs flawlessly on my PC and I absolutely love it. Oh and the time it takes to load online is absolutely horrible.

You can load into single-player in less than a minute if you have a good computer, every time.

Going straight into online is highly variable because the game handshakes with as many as 29 other clients depending on what lobby you get sorted into.

If you get dumped into a lobby by yourself there's nobody to handshake with so of course it'll be faster, so congrats on having a stopwatch for the one time you decided to time it.

This is also why, especially when coordinating 4 people together to do heists, we typical go Single Player -> Invite Only Lobby rather than rolling the dice on a public session which may or may not have cheaters in it slowing things down even further.

LOL who has a stopwatch I used my smartphone. 8)

My point was the dude was clearly over exaggerating "saving 5-8 minutes by using a ssd". There was plenty of people in the lobby.

Still should use a ssd. Load straight to online and go get a drink.

Glad we exposed that guy for being a giant liar. Thanks for the diligence, dude.

I think the load times are probably one of the worst things about this game. There have been times when I've tried to load into Online and it sat there for so long I started to hear parts of the loading song that I'd never heard before. That song now angers me.

Thanks again for the help last night to some of the goons who I played with. I'll eventually get up there in ranks and whatnot.

I purchased the bunker and it seems to be sucking money out of my account. I keep purchasing cargo so my workers can make products but the return on it does not seem great. Am I doing anything wrong?

Also my main goals for this week is to get the free bonus money from the objectives. Already got the hatchet from Maude and ill be treasure hunting a little later this afternoon. Kinda want to save about 2 million so I can seed that money for future prospects.

do you have the equipment and staff upgrades? one of them makes your stock sell for slightly more, but both are worth it when you can get them (the security upgrade doesn't help much, if i recall correctly.) the bunker is slow to start, like most gta online businesses, but eventually it'll click and you'll break even, then start profiting from it.

I spent about 1.6 million getting that bunker so I don't have the upgrades yet. That is next on my to-do list.

Been reading the how not to suck guide goke made and just doing the solo stuff in a small lobby. The greifers in this game really do make this difficult. Some guy dressed up in a pink alien costume driving the batmobile was trolling the hell out of me earlier this morning so I learned to just get into small lobbies.

If you buy supplies before you have the staff and equipment upgrades purchased you're barely breaking even. With both upgrades purchased buying supplies will make you 135k profit.

edit: Only buy supplies when you're empty. buying partial supplies gives you less for your money because you pay 15k per 1/5th of a bar needed and it always rounds up, costing you more.
