Re: GTA V - Online Now (semi)Availible

Thing that pissed me off was I got a car simeon wanted and got right outside the garage in the docks when some random dbag gunned me down and took my car and hard work. So tilting.

Yesterday, a friend and I loaded up a car with c4 and parked it sideways in front of Simeon's garage door. A guy had just got done taking a car Simeon wanted to LSC and was on his way to the docks. We climbed up a crane and had Lester hide our blips and waited. Guy rolls up, sees the car blocking the door, gets out to move it and as soon as he does, boom. It was glorious.

Got pissed bc chedda was talking smack and I didn't have a mic and it was way lopsided. Ended up putting a bounty on chedda, which kruze got. Then they start chasing me in a heli, lol.

Was all good though, as chedda and I grinded Down The Drain for a bit w some other 2+2'ers. 2+2 crew seem to be growing in #'s.
Lol chedder is special...he talks **** constantly was nothin personal. .. he gets annoying sometimes but he is OK othertimes. I mute him often...he prolly gonan join a diff crew soon so kill him ay will ldo

Re: GTA V - Online Now (semi)Availible

does anyone know why theres a huge green circle over that dock area where you bring simeon his cars?

two red blips showed up on my radar, dock worker villains (?) when i got there, so i took 'em out. then the cops came and i had to pay lester 500 to remove my wanted level. but i looked around for a good 10 minutes in between and on top of the box cars but couldn't find anything. it was so tilting. ended up killing a few players that came down to the docks, had the cops on me again and i fell off the huge crane and died.

whats in that area? some kind of package with money/rp?

edit: its similar to the red circles for gang attacks, but much, much larger.

The green circle indicated that there was an incoming crate. After it arrives it becomes a green box with a ? on it.

Sometimes they won't beat you to the area where the crate is to be delivered and you can blast it open and get away easily. when i got there, so i took 'em out. then the cops came and i had to pay lester 500 to remove my wanted level. but i looked around for a good 10 minutes in between and on top of the box cars but couldn't find anything. it was so tilting. ended up killing a few players that came down to the docks, had the cops on me again and i fell off the huge crane and died.

Re: GTA V - Online Now (semi)Availible

The huge green circle means a create is on the way to be dropped. Once it is dropped you can pick it up. It usually has cash and RP points or guns. There are usually a couple bad guys there too.

I'm in Red Rider Crew on PS3 if anyone wants to join.

Once the create drops, it will change from a large green circle to a create looking picture.

What lvl you need to be at to have lester be able to hide your blip? I just unlocked the ability to place bounties and am now at like lvl 17. Know later lvl you can also pay lester to have your wanted lvl disappear.

Also, think I saw someone mention something about being able to place a moving gps target on a player. If you just set a blip on a player, don't think it moves w the movements of the player. Anyone know what I'm talking about?

Wasn't that pissed. He said something like "it's over already?!" and "lol, he doesn't wanna replay?" or something like that. Wasn't that fun going solo at lvl 15 vs a lvl 60 and lvl 99 player lol.

And how the **** you get to lvl 99 already?!? Play like 5+ hours everyday? I have to play mainly when my gf is at work and I'm not at work or school, so get very limited playing time.

GTAVO so much more fun than sp mode but so much more crack level addictive. Always saying "one more race, one more survival" to myself and barely leaving for work on time.

Anyone know when heists will be introduced? And what about this stimulus package where R* is gonna give us $500,000(?)?

New favorite thing to do to **** with someone is wait until they go inside a store of some kind, park a nice car outside, slap some C4 on the back of that sucker, then blow it when they come out - bonus points if they get in the car and try to drive off

Have tried adapting the jihad jeep move from Battlefield, but it's hard to get the vehicle on target, get out, survive being shot at and detonate it before the target moves; still works if you don't mind being in the car when it explodes

Edit: Haha, didn't see this, great minds think alike-

Re: GTA V - Online Now (semi)Availible

thanks for the info about the green blip / crate drop. it was the first time i had the whole map pulled up prior to a drop, so i'd only seen the box with the '?' on it before that, never the drop zone.

Has anyone done a slappers-only deathmatch yet? You'd have to set it up within a crew since randoms would obv ruin it, but sounds like it'd be fun on the smaller maps

I wish there were more missions that involved melee or fistfighting in SP

Re: GTA V - Online Now (semi)Availible

Thing w deathmatches is that you don't get enough $ or rp from them and barely break even bc you have to buy ammo and armor.

Airplane races are tough for me, seem to crash and burn a lot.

Anyone like the parachute missions? I like them but wish the reward was greater.

Any other way to improve your stamina or strength other than golf? Think I saw someone mention they go around vespucci beach and beat up the bodybuilders.

Just sprinting around will improve stamina but it's pretty boring. Can't vouch for mp on the strength but in sp the best way was tennis. Think you need a partner online though.

Incidentally, are R*s servers down right now or is it just me? I'm online but haven't been able to save in a couple hours or so...

This is pretty cool and will be very useful if BAWSAQ ever launches.

Nobody ever wants to do air races or heli races. I don't lose at them, everyone always votes for cars which I suck at if there's traffic or bike races which I just plain suck at.
