Starting completely over in SP? Don't worry about that, MP is completely separate.
Agree that creating a new character/possibly deleting what you've still got going from the buggy days probably gets the job done if you haven't done that so far.
You should be set once you get through the longass introtutorial that ends with input into the open world with other players and note to rob a store.

that and down the drain it seems
you can make a ton of money racing without doing just those over and over for 1 or 2 laps though. normal racing's basically money farming in itself compared to the rest of the online options.

I like the 1 lap version better. 2 laps is like playing a non-turbo sng.

This game is so much better when you have a full 16 players all talking, Battle of Los Santos (8v8 dogfight over LS) is crazy fun. Really need some cash to buy and mod a sports car and bike, most races I join I'm racing for 4th or 5th atm. That half mil can't come quick enough.

Did it yesterday with 5 people. By far most trouble I/we've had with a mission and not close so far.

Yeah. I mostly just back out pre-launch when joining alone if custom is on right now. Always turn it off as host. Dunno what's wrong with pure racing.
It's cool when you got a (semi)closed lobby with boosted rides going.

Do all cars respond pretty similarly to maxed out customization?

Oh yeah, totally agree. For grinding with 1 or 2 laps anyway, though I dislike grinding same race for more than maybe 3 or 4 times in general.
(Bike)Crim. records with a bunch of people and 5-8 laps is good.

I like point to point better than laps in general as well, as those for the most part feel really simple and kinda boring at least without traffic.

Yeah I was one of the lucky ones it worked for. I think I'll just back up all of my save data and then delete everything to see what happens later tonight.

i just got back to good/regular sport lobby, and its cool to be back with my IRL friends but i miss being able to blow up peoples rides if i felt like it...
blowing up peoples vehicles is just too much fun, I did it last week to a guy and he started screaming at me for a good 10 mins , the guy claimed he had to pay 1 mill to get the car back lol

I was shooting at a random in his car and blew up his car. I was annoyed when the system message told me I'm a bad player.

Re: GTA V - Online Now (semi)Availible

goddam crew emblem rfgkjwerjsndfv;jsadefnerguefr

so I've had a go at sorting out the emblem, think the problem you had with it g0tgame was that the vector magic website helpfully sticks a white background where transparency should be, and they would like $250 for the full version to get rid of it. So instead I DL'd Inkscape and did it through there. I've got the image to show up on the social club with transparent background, but now the bastard is taking forever to save, been ~20 mins now with the same saving message. Swear it would have taken less time to just rebuild the damn thing from scratch in the emblem editor. If it does save just need obvurnotagolfer to switch it in to test it ingame. So tilted, gonna sticky bomb every car I see when I get home lol

My emblem took a while to save as well, but it eventually showed up. Make sure you copied the correct code to the correct place.

Yeah, I've probably messed it up somewhere along the line. I'll try it again from scratch tomorrow, the image doesn't look clean enough for a vector anyway, looks a little too pixellated around some edges for an svg file.

Re: GTA V - Online Now (semi)Availible

Apparently players can report you for being a Bad Sport as well.

I don't get it. It's GRAND THEFT AUTO! I'm cruising around last night in my Little Red Coquette and I get passed by a player who is driving one of the cars that Simeon wants. I begin following him and notice he is delivering the car to Simeon. I maintain pursuit, shoot him and steal his car to deliver to Simeon myself. I finish the delivery and of course the player is waiting for me outside Simeon's place. We get into a shootout in which I kill him about 8 times before making it back to my own car to leave. Then I get the pop up...

"A player has reported you for being a Bad Sport. If you received another complaint you'll be kicked from the session."

That's some bull**** right there.

That is BS.

Along those same lines: My buddy was telling me about a helicopter w/ a grappling hook and how you are able to pick up somebody's car and drop them wherever you want. Will you get penalized (have to pay for it/ get put in bad sport lobby) if you drop that persons car in the middle of the ocean, since technically you aren't destroying it? If so I guess I can grab villain's car and put it on top of the bank, which may actually be better anyways. PS: I would only do this to someone who really pissed me off as it seems like a better solution than paying money to put a bounty on them.

Re: GTA V - Online Now (semi)Availible

Does money increase in missions as you go up in rank? I'm level 11 and missions rarely pay out over $2k. I'm like dying for the stimulus so I can buy anything worthwhile.
