Which reminds me: not everyone is so picky about how their master save is created. Some may choose to avoid restricted areas, to use cheats, or mods and editors if they run into a glitch. Still, I feel the term "Master Save" is appropriate because everyone knows pretty much what we are talking about - all the side activities that you want to do before completing the first story mission. IMO, as long as the save name
Suggestion: an Elite Master Save must include all missions that contribute towards 13.37% completion due to the association between 1337, leet, and Elite.
My quick start for a new game is a weapon/ammo/armor run Video followed by Burglary to unlock infinite sprint and earn enough to buy El Corona (my favorite road for Burglary btw, got over 56k in one night back in the day). Notice that the video ends at about 18:00, just the right time to get into position with the Boxville.

Taxi Glitch: I don't want the taxi glitch on any of my saves so it doesn't really matter if I do them early or not.
