it's gonna snow on Christmas because EVERYONE that plays GTA celebrates Christmas!

So you're upset that people might celebrate a holiday in your presence?

How about you suck it up and deal with the fact that you're just an asshole and people aren't barred from enjoying themselves simply because you don't want to.

It's suppose to snow on the 27th. I can see why they chose the 27th too. It's to give the people that get it Christmas day a chance to see what the city originally looks like before covering it with snow. ;)
 
 
When does it stop snowing?
I dunno. I read somewhere that the Christmas DLC is going to be triggered on the 27th, but there was no date to when it would take the snow away.
 
 
Oh, I'd be pissed if it only snows for like an hour on the 27th and then after that it's all gone lol.

Doubt it. Rockstar will probably turn it off when they return from their holidays. Would be nice if they added it to the weather system so it could become snowy randomly by its self just like how it rains every now and then.

Obama orders another government shutdown upon hearing that there is in fact no snow in LA, and demands additional funding to make it so.

 

*Since* Obama was actually the one who caused the government shutdown *along with the democrats*, then it would be a cold day in Los Santos *if there was snow.*   :p

 

Fixed that for ya.

 

 

Considering the whole line of republican reasoning when they were elected was "we don't need government in our lives"....I think you need to re-asses your whole viewpoint.   ;)

 

The republicans were the ones that shut the government down.  They even admitted it on Fox News and bragged about it BEFORE they blamed it on Obama.  Don't start with the BS of blaming Obama for everything here.  

 

I'm surprised they haven't blamed Obama for hackers in GTA yet.

 Huge difference between Limited government and no government. But your full of hate and this is a GTA Forum. Take your Lib talking points to a Liberal Forum. We are talking GTA  and snow here.

How did we go from snow to politics?

As for the stuff floating around, that is atmospheric debris that has been here since the beginning. That said, i don't doubt the json files, and the snow that may come with it.

Nobody needs to be a grinch by talking about realism. Owning an RPG-7, or a tank is much less likely than snowing in the los angeles area. The holidays are no place to shoot down a man's happy hopes.

This thread.....so derailed into chaos

 

Chaos? this thread is relatively normal compared to what usually gets posted on here.  :^:


Well on the off chance it does "snow" I'm clearing out some of my old snapmatic pics just in case. IF it does indeed snow, such as the pics thats been seen, I want to take as many pics as possible because I don't think it will be something that will happen often. I never got to North Yankton so never got any pics from there so IF this does happen it'll certainly make up for it.

So, according to someone on Reddit... the Christmas clothes are supposed to be available in about 40 min? Since he said "Xmas Content Starts on December 24, 2013 11:00 GMT and ends January 5, 2014 23:59"

I checked my clothing while in my apartment (also UK) - Santa & Elf hats, antlers, Santa jacket etc. Masks showed up in the inventory once I'd been to Ponsonbys, weirdly.

Just to clear this up, here are the start and end times for snow, as per tunables.json from the R* servers...

"TURN_SNOW_ON_OFF": [
    {
        "value": true,
        "start": 1387929600,
        "end": 1388034000
    }
]

And here's the start and end times converted from Unix timestamps into actual datetimes...

"start": 1387929600 = Wed, 25 Dec 2013 00:00:00 GMT
"end": 1388034000 = Thu, 26 Dec 2013 05:00:00 GMT

You can get the values from this file (notice the Rockstar domain name)...

 

http://prod.cloud.ro...3/tunables.json

 

You can convert the values in that file using this tool...

 

http://www.onlinecon...m/unix_time.htm

 

Anyone that has snow before midnight tonight, GMT, is most likely using an alternative DNS which forces their console to download a modified version of that file, rather than the real one.

 

And here's the start and end times for the Christmas related content...

"TOGGLE_XMAS_CONTENT": [
    {
        "value": true,
        "start": 1387882800,
        "end": 1388966340
    }
]
"start": 1387882800 = Tue, 24 Dec 2013 11:00:00 GMT
"end": 1388966340 = Sun, 05 Jan 2014 23:59:00 GMT

If you're not seeing any changes within those time periods then you probably need to quit the game and restart it.  I doubt these things will kick in mid-session, but I may be wrong.

I dont think us PS3 users downloaded the "holiday gift" with 1.08 like 360 people did. I search my console yesterday & couldnt find it anywhere. Just a theory.

Are all the clothes free?

Stop posting pictures please, we all know it's real, I never doubted it. But with all these pictures, there'll be nothing left to see. Videos are fine, because I have to actually click that to spoil it. I'm looking forward to this, one question: Is the snow coming tonight ? Because 00:00 25th can be a little misleading...
