Man, it's weird that I'm really jealous of this. Stuck on -6 or -7 each round.

Me and a friend spent hours on that mission one day just messing around, we found that the base was empty of security so we abandoned the mission and just fought each other in jets, come to think of it I still haven't finished it lol

All at once. Here's an article about it.

Quote:
Starting today, you should begin to see money filling up your delicious virtual Los Santos coffers—Rockstar just announced that the GTA Online stimulus package will kick off today.P

Anyone who played GTA Online in October will get a free $500,000. It's Rockstar's way of saying sorry for all the launch woes and technical difficulties in their online open-world game, which came free with copies of GTA V.P

"We expect that it will take up to 2 full days for the Stimulus Package to be fully delivered to the entire player base from October 2013, so please be patient if you do not see it appearing in your in-game bank account just yet," Rockstar writes on their blog. "We will update this post on Friday when we expect all the GTA$ Stimulus Package deposits to have been completed."P

Inflation for everyone!

Didn't they initially say they were going to do two deposits of 250k so it wouldn't "de-stabilize" the in game economy?

there are a few good ones in the middle of the city that are near the insurance place where you pick up your cars/bikes that have been destroyed after you call the insurance company. It's also pretty close to an ammunation which is convenient. Think the road its on is called alta road or something. there are two houses on the road that are around 200k and they have 10 car garages. That's all you need. The other 400k+ apartments from what I've heard the only difference is, is that you get a nicer view from inside your apartment.

Re: GTA V - Online Now (semi)Availible

also heard the point of buying a very large mansion/apartment with a 10 car garage is that the huge apartments have an area where you plan your heists...whenever that is released.

No pretty sure that's just the super car. It's called the entity xf or something.

Yeah, the best car for racing imo..

Tempted to get on of these and max it out..

Afaik it has the best traction and then the turbo will make it as fast in a straight line as the Adder at max too..

No way to upgrade traction, so pick the one with the best stat for that ftw

Re: GTA V - Online Now (semi)Availible

Watched Heat last night so restyled my character to look like De Niro, but he came out looking like Gay Tony lol

Couldn't afford a supercar (not an Entity anyway, everything else is a waste of money) so tricked out my free Elegy to the max with armour and bulletproof tyres, she's one sweet bounty hunting car now. Proved its worth instantly when I left the mod shop and a guy was waiting outside to shoot it up, failed. Next on the shopping list is suppress and scope all the guns.

Hi mate,

Re: GTA V - Online Now (semi)Availible

I maxed out the elegy with all the mods & bullet proof tyres but no armour (same as my akuma). Is the armour worth it? Does it slow the car down much?

After a couple of races I couldn't bring myself to set custom cars on in the races as if nobody else has a suped up akuma/bati it's boringly easy. I only use them if it's someone elses lobby and they are using them. I'm lvl ~50 and winning ~10k and 2500xp per race is pretty sweet.

Races I most enjoy (traffic on and catchup off where it applies):

down the drain
the commute
taking off
the motorbike one with the train at the start.


I still have my half a mill to buy. I got the cheapest 10 garage apartment by the beach. I might move slightly closer into town.

I only upgrade the best gun in it's class, as I don't use the other ones afterwards.

Re: GTA V - Online Now (semi)Availible

weee, nice timing on the stimulus package.
I'll start grinding to get to 800k for the Entity in ~30 min if anybody wants to party up.

@Wes
yeah, not high on my priority list either even though I've been very loose with money on guns, scopes, extended clips and grips. Its benefits are mostly in deathmatches, unless you just prefer the sound.

I did the same minus the armour. How does it handle with it?

Afaik, no difference to handling and speed, only could get 60% armour though, haven't unlocked the rest. Worked like a charm though, guy was unloading on me and I didn't lose a drop of health. As for suppressors, just prefer the sound plus they look better, but hoping it'll bump up the stealth bar too.
