Distorted Kiwi
Jun 11, 2014

"C'mon! Let's tune our weapons!"

Newbie Report

Picked this up at the last Steam sale. Only just started playing it properly this month. (I know, Iím slow, but I had to finish San Andreas first*)

In the last week I have both fallen in love (with the online play) and been driven to frothing rage. (By some of the online players)

I dressed my dude like a camo-loving redneck and drive everywhere on a dirtbike equipped with a truck horn. Including through a pedestrian mall I only discovered after a fortnight of play.

I have been shot in the head what feels like 8,000 times. So far Iíve only taken out two players, one with a beautiful headshot in retaliation. (Or so I thought, as I actually shot some schmuck who just happened to be in the same area as my assailant.)

The other guy ran out in front of my car like a badly-dressed lemming.

I surprised the gently caress out of some guy by complementing his ability to snipe me as I parachuted out of an exploded helicopter, rather than making aspersions about his sexuality. We then teamed up and spent an enjoyably pointless hour trying to park speedboats on another headshot wizard, who decorated the beachfront with out corpses.

In short, even with the somewhat toxic community, Iím playing this until my thumbs fall off.

If you spot the Distorted Kiwi tooling around town, say hi. Then shoot me.


*Note: I still havenít finished San Andreas. Stupid flying missions

I never really have any shortage of outfits, though some are just variants and I have a real thing for gas masks..



Just showing some examples of what you can do though I will full well admit I had to glitch some things like the Deadline Helmet onto outfits. I have a ton more ridiculous crazy outfits, just what I happened to already have some shots of.

I have a ton of ridiculous outfits but this is my go-to (long before I got the matching MoC trailer). I in particular dig it when I'm running with my friend at like 4AM when there's nobody from the US on since we get known as "The Americans" a lot thanks to his spot-on Honest Abe.

Anyone got an idea as to why the right analog stick button doesn't work on the PS4 controller when playing the PC version? I can pan the camera around with the stick just fine, but all the actions tied to pressing the stick in don't register.

Have you triedturning it off and back on again unmapping and remapping it? If you go to the controller control panel and advanced does it register as a press?

You can glitch the fenders off that hotknife if u want... Cycle through the fender options real fast until they disappear and buy whatever option it landed on

Same goes for the blower options, you can glitch it to no blower, just the stock flush stacks (but still have no hood)

Is there still a way to paint stock wheels? The old method was to buy any set of rims in the color you wanted, then use the ifruit app to re-order the stock wheels and they would be painted the same color as the previous set. Haven't tried it in a while, does this still work?

Yes as long as the stock wheels don't have chrome, or change color with the paint like the autarch

I've got around 1.8 million banked right now, I already own Vehicle/Bunker/Special Warehouse, and I have a Buzzard. Getting money has gotten much easier since getting the helicopter, I can get a nice smooth rotation between VIP work, Vehicles, Resupplies & sales for Bunker/Special Cargo.

Should I buy a Hangar, Upgrade the MOC for Vehicle/Weapon Workshop, or Spend 1.6m on a Facility to start working toward a Deluxo? The two things I really am itching for are a Deluxo and an Akula, I know I need the Facility/Hanger respectively.

Bear in mind you will need the workshop in the hangar (something like 900K-1MM) for the Akula. If you like doing a lot of freeroam activities and supply runs/sales the Akula is a goddamn miracle even without the hangar workshop. The Deluxo won't really help you any more than the Buzzard except for combat capability against other players. It's not any faster than the buzzard and the hover mode is like controlling a pinball telekinetically, which sounds cool except in this metaphor everything in the world is a bumper.

I'd get the Akula first, upgrade it if you like it, that's a lot more reachable goal than the deluxo and it gets you closer to the deluxo as well. It's a nice copter on its own, it has smooth handling and it holds altitude. Your freeroam rotation is designed for solo income and the Akula is a big value add for that. Your passengers even get night and thermal vision windows, which is useless but gives them something to do.

Meanwhile you can be doing research to make the MOC workshops worth more to you. I assume you're on console since we're discussing legitimately earning money, if you're on the PS4 I'd be happy to let you do some bunker runs with either vehicle to try them out.

^^ You don't need the Facility to buy and store a Deluxo. Stores in a personal garage, modifies in the MOC or Avenger. Interesting trivia I saw about the Deluxo:

quote:

Unlike the Oppressor, Rocket Voltic and Vigilante, the Deluxo is not considered either a Land Vehicle for use in Time Trials nor an Aircraft for "Fly Under Bridges" and "Low Flying" Freemode Challenges, likely due to its permanent hover capability. As a result of this, it is possible to fly over the fence at Fort Zancudo and not be targeted by the P-996 LAZER jets there.

Just logging in gets you $250k. Rebate part sounds like whatever you buy between the 16th(today) and 26th, after the week you'll get 10% of that total back, upto a million. So buy 10million worth of Faggios and get $1million cash back. Not sure if it applies to just vehicles and clothes, or if it includes things like property, ammo, cannon shots, hookers, cans of Sprunk, etc

10% on poo poo they never put on sale is better than 0% discount, but generally yes, waiting for a 25% on the things they do is the way to go

I could buy a deluxo I guess but ehhhhhhhh

TheTofuShop posted:

Here's the thing. The Akula is magical, I love flying mine. But you're looking at spending close to five million to get it assuming you've got the trade price - that's a shitload of your time grinding unless you find a magical money hacker, and while it is more fun than a buzzard, is it five million bucks more fun? Just ask yourself is it worth five million bucks of GTA grind, and you have the answer. And ideally don't buy a hangar or a helicopter without the 25% discounts they do from time to time.

And hey, you never know - it's entirely possible that while you grind up the money they'll release something even more monstrously overpowered in the meantime and you'll want that instead.


all this said if you decide you want it, the akula is a great helicopter. Seating 4, stealth mode, and pretty good armament? Solid choice. IMO, far better than the Deluxo, but I already have an Oppressor for my air vehicle needs so the Deluxo's niche for me is very small.

Truth but if u want discounts on the akula, deluxo, etc you need a facility to host the heist things. P.sure if you want both, the discounts would pay for the base price of most of or all the facilities

Powershift

It's also super handy to keep a heist open to teleport back to your facility without leaving the session.

Joining your own heist through the phone just dumps you in your heist room, not in the actual hosting menu or anything.
