Re: GTA V - releases September 17

Anyone here know much about cars and storing them in garages?

If i put a car in my safe house garage, save it, then take it out for a spin and blow it up, save again, will it re appear in my garage or do i have to make sure I take my car back to the safe house after every time i take it out for a drive?

How garages work:

Quote:
I've testing around with saving cars, house garages and garages for the past hours. I thought it could be good to know how things works with the house garage / garage / car impound.

###### Houses

Every character has a different amount of vehicles. Michael have his classic Obey Tailgater car, but also depending on which family members are home, he will have his family members cars parked at the house. Franklin always has his white Buffalo and the other vehicle depending on how far in the story you are.

Those cars can be modded and the mods will be saved. So I would suggest fixing the main cars first with body mods and armor would be a reasonable investment.

Since I've been testing with Michael and Franklin, both have house garages and to save a car, you just park it in there and then leave. If you park it, walk out get the garage door shut then grab your vehicle it will be removed from the garage but enters a "save state".

###### Garage

Have spots for 4 vehicles. Bicycles/bikes/cars. By standing outside the garage door with your vehicle you press the right arrow on the "arrow-pad" on your controller and you will be loaded into the garage on foot, and the vehicle is parked inside.

If you grab a vehicle from the garage by entering (triangle or Y) it inside, you will get loading screen and be loaded out to the street. The car will be removed from the garage but enter the "save state".

Note: If you enter on foot because your garage was full when you just was about to save a car, the car outside COULD be removed when you get back out. Happened to me like 50% of the time.

###### Car Impound

Every car that has been in the "save state" will get to the impound if you lose it. If you park a car in "save state" in any garage, that car will be removed from the "save state". You only have 2 impound slots.

Note: You can only have one car of the same type taken by the car impound.

For example:

---

If you mod a Carbonizzare, let us say, full body mods, lime green color.

Save it in the garage then pick it up. It is now in the "save state". While roaming the highway, you suddenly die by some evil cop or something. The fully modded, lime green car will be stored in the car impound since it has been saved in your garage once.

An hour later or so, you find a brand new white Carbonizzare parked by a douche on the handicap parking over at Del Perro Pier, you steal this care to feel a little bit better by yourself.

Despite the white color, you want to park this car in your garage in case you need it later. You save it in the garage, pick it up again and start your daily show-off by cruising Los Santos.

Cruising went well, alot of people took pictures of your ride and your ego is now complete. You park the car and take a walk downtown. The car is now lost. But since you made it enter a save state you will be able to get it back from the car impound. BUT!!! Your lime green, fully modded Carbonizzare are now gone. Forever.

---

###### Extra

This works SOMETIMES: If switch from a character while the are driving a newly picked up vehicle that isn't saved. That vehicle will be stored on the street outside their house next time you switch to them.

Fairly certain if you don't return it to the garage you lose it, that's how I remember other GTAs operating but I never bother saving vehicles in garages so I'm not absolutely sure that's correct.

Re: GTA V - releases September 17

So I cut from Michael to Trevor, and Trevor is in bed with Wade's cousin Floyd who is crying his eyes out dressed in pink-(most likely Debra's clothing), and Trevor pats his butt and says "You are so pretty when you sleep"

Serious WTF moment.

Re: GTA V - releases September 17

Like a chop shop. I have no idea why they didn't include one.

I also don't understand why they made saving cars so complicated. I still don't completely understand it, even after messing around with saving cars and just now reading that explanation. Maybe it needs a patch or something.

They had it in IV and it was pretty cool because you had to look at pics on your phone and try and find the cars. Would have been awesome if they had it in V.

Really, any of the moments you change back to trevor are amazing.

Have had him crushing the mullet throughout the game. Seems to fit perfectly with the beard.

When you buy cars off the internet they are placed in your big character specific garage. No idea what happens if it is already full though.
