Okay so I see that Rockstar removed the option of playing solo.  I wanted to try this out so I could get my feet wet without being griefed.

 

So I went to passive mode to avoid dickheads, and what happens? Some guy rolls up and wrecks my car shooting at it, gets cops after himself, I ignore him, he gets in my car and transfers his wanted level to me, we both die, my car is impounded, and my gameplay is screwed by some idiot.

 

Which IIRC is something Rockstar said they wanted to avoid.

 

I cant remember the guys name to thumb him down, all these idiots have the same kinds of stupid name anyway.

 

Why was the option for solo removed after like 3 days.

 

Why was the option to prevent randoms from getting in your car with you removed?

 

It seems like all the useful anti griefing features have been removed, aside from passive mode which is plain f*n awful.  So someone transfers a wanted level to you, and you have to go into a menu and disable it, while cops are chasing you with 3 stars, so you can fire back at the cops?   Give me a break.  That is beyond useless.

 I ignore him, he gets in my car 

 

 

You can lock your car by selecting the option from the menu by holding Select.

Passive mode doesn't work in a car anyway, to prevent you from running over people without being able to get shot for it. There should be passive mode servers, not just a passive button on the fly. Dumb you can lock your car too, this is Grand THEFT AUTO, not the Sims. I don't harass people but I still think it should be chaotic in free roam unless your in a designated passive lobby where everyone is safe.

Even in Grand Theft Auto you can't just enter a car and take it. In traffic, sure, because nobody locks their car while driving it, presuming that nobody is retarded enough to jack a car with someone still in it. But for parked cars, you either smash in the window or disable the lock, which takes a few seconds.

 

Anyway, the car locking system is fine. If you're just exploring, it shouldn't be possible for some asswipe to come by with a wanted level and enter your passenger seat. That's retarded.

Solution for griefers.

1. Go to passive mode. Always park your car to look "normal" (parked correctly or in an alleyway), not spread across the parking lot or street to give away who's it is.

2.  Now enter an Ammu-Nation.

3.  Watch grief player shoot at you, miss/unable to, then get shot to death by store clerk.

4. Move on on your merry way.

It's weird how there are so many! The idiots are the loud ones but the silent majority are just quietly getting on with things.

Lock your car from the select menu. And I've found that parking your car so that it looks like a normal spawned car helps people avoid messing with you if they're not looking at your blip on the screen.

 

Was actually sitting in my car in one of those parking spots by the road when someone drove by, stopped, jumped out and ran to get my car (a yellow Camaro look-alike with black wheels; guess he liked it) and he tried opening it, discovered he couldn't, then he stood there for a second confused and realized there was an actual person in it. I was one step ahead of him and throttled it out of there right as he started firing at me. Funny stuff.

How the hell is this griefing?!

 

You died ONCE. That is, if anything, a game incident.

My biggest deal with it is that people can still easily run you over and you die.
I was in passive mode, walking around and a NPC drives straight into me with no incentive and I die. Or when someone is shooting at you while you stare at them laughing at their failed attempts and then they chase you down and run you over, killing you. That's not very fair when you just paid 100$ for passive mode and are still forced to pay the hospital bill.

I blew up a guy in passive mode when he was standing by the pumps at a gas station, lol.  :devil:

 

Also, I was in a store trying to buy clothes (in passive mode) and a guy walked in with a gun and I had to leave the store. I went outside and he stole my car and ran me over and killed me. It was great.

I've not tried passive mode yet, however whenever I make cash I instantly transfer it over to my bank account via my PHONE. So much easier. Also, there's a lot of players that like to grief but I guess we just have to put up with it. Noticed you can jump into jobs and stuff without having to drive there too. Which is nice. Just going to save up for a crib and then be on my merry way. So hard to make money though

Yup if you have more than $50 you go to the internet on your phone - then money and services, then click on the Maze bank. It will give you the option to deposit money, take out or just view transactions. Click deposit and then it asks you how much you want to put in - the bottom one it usually the exact amount of money you have on hand. That's what I pick, so I never have to have cash on my person. If you go to a store, the money just comes straight from your bank account.

passive mode is a joke. I recently went downstairs for eating and activated passive mode. But yea, it just prevents you from being shot. People can still run you over with their vehicles just fine. Well done R*. I thought it may be timed and the counter was over, but nope, I still had to deactivate it later.

First of all, use your quickmenu to set your vehicle to "Crew + Friends", and then your car door will be locked to others.

 

Then, in single player, go to:

Start > Online > Invite Only

Passive in GTA basically only covers you from enemy fire. If you know that you can still get run over then go somewhere a car or explosion cannot get you should you need to leave the game unattended for a while.

 

The description for passive mode ingame explains that you cannot be shot until you shoot back so it's quite clear.

Here is a tip: If I see someone in PUSS mode, I will come at you bro, and kill you in your car or make sure your car wont move anymore. End of discussion
