One thing is very clear and that is they don't want us creating anything better than they do
The custom jobs are the reason I'm still playing the game. They are way more fun than the R* stuff. I'm sincerely amazed how many great races, stunt races, LTS and Captures keep getting created by the comunity. Awesome stuff.
Here's the top 5 races of R*, and custom PS4 and PC (which I'm on):
R* all platforms
Criminal Records - 180.3m plays
Down the Drain - 48.8m plays
Taking Off - 42.2m plays
The Commute - 41.4m plays
Senora Freeway - 38.8m plays
Maze Bank Mega Jump!!!! - 5.4m plays
*MEGA WALLRIDE 3.0* - 3.9m plays
25 STORY FREESTYLE FUN - 3.6m plays
.STUNT BJs: it's Huuuuuge - 3.5m plays
Air Control - 3.4m plays
First PS4 custom race is no. 195 of the most played races. First 194 with verified jobs.
刷汽車配件使用1KM直線賽 - 1.9m plays
Vehicle Part Unlock - 1.2m plays
FastestRace in the World - 1.0m plays
高速公路直線競賽 - 940.8k plays
' # Super Stunt Sky # - 841.7k plays
So, I think they don't need us. And that shows. It's all about the money, not creating a worthwhile, good gaming experience for the creators comunity or the players. Custom jobs don't sell shark cards.
Most players are not even aware custom jobs exist. Would be different if they were available ingame, but they are not. For good reasons maybe, cause there are also a lot of bad jobs and even troll jobs out there.
R* should pay a handful of custom job testers and verify more jobs. They could verify 20 jobs on each platform every week (and not that stuff they usually verify =)! Could be a win-win situation for both sides. Maybe then they would be afraid, that comunity jobs are better than theirs =))
