[Content Creator] How to Stack Props & Place Anything in Mid-Air

Recommended Posts

Cool. Good to know.

Your question is 3 weeks old, but if you're still wondering....

 

You can use props to 'climb'. What I mean by this, if you have two props that are stackable with each other, you can take the bottom one and continually put it on top. With this method, you can climb as high as you like without a solid base.

 

-----

 

For anyone,

 

Whilst it doesn't look as neat, you can use the large corrugated cabins instead of 6 float piles. It saves a lot of time. If you want it neat, you can use 3 hot dog trailers instead.

Thanks man...I was hoping there was some other way as stacking that way takes forever.

I keep seeing these maps where they have placed props over water. I'm guessing these are made by using hacks or some other glitch? I don't see how it would be possible using this glitch except by slowly moving it towards the water, but that would put them in a very high altitude. I've seen lots that are just barely above water.

not hacks, building on water used to be very hard as you would have to fight with the waves however ,ever since 1.17 wev been able to raise and lower props simply by pressing L3 or R3.

 

alot of the stuff in this thread is quite redudent now a good insight in to how things used to work tho.

Ohhh Well I haven't been using the content creator in a while. sh*t and I used to think that I'm caught up on everything GTA lol.

 

 

I like how R* didn't mind us glitching these before. They even featured some jobs with floating props. Then they turned it into a feature.

You could also stack onto the water ramps using the switch glitch, for the historic jobs over water.

I tried that, but it never worked for me. I guess there was a technique to it.

Is it still possible to make large ramps?

 

I've been trying but can't seem to get it to work.

Hello all

 

Are there any more threads like this for stacking items with content creator, for Xbox one or PS4?

 

Thanks in advance

Is there any way to be able to place spawn points on objects that are midair? I'm next gen (xb1) and they took out the ability to place spawns on top of cabins.

if jobs are getting verified using the stacking technique they need to unlock it/add easier way to creator imo.

Same here on PS4!

 

Cant get a stacked spawnpoint or teamstartpoint to work. Tried every fundation-object mentioned in the orig.post: no luck, cursor always turns red. Only a floating-plattform (on water) seems to be big enough to contain those points...

But no stacking or height manipulation on the plattform possible...

 

What do I miss?

 

thx & bw

It is the same method since the beginning of the creator :

Yep! Got it. Big Thanx.

 

I pushed the reset-button inside my brain and watched all tuts by CCC010 and now everything works fine. I only wish, the team starting points could be placed in a different way than the edge-glitch... takes me ages to get a single one up to the point I want it to... but, at least, it works! I might need more practice too..

For the team starting point you put it on the edge of the first container , then you place an another container next to the first one , and after that your team starting point is in the middle :p

Otherwise you have a new method found by Trigg-r Happy to place directly the team starting point where you want :

THX pocpiz!

 

just watched this tut, and even those, each guy mentioned as his source for this trick himself ... but to be honest, it looks like this is just another way to replace one pain with another! Spent over an hour with watching and testing, but I didn´t got a single object to place itself with a 90° rotation...

 

Switch-glitch, move-glitch, zoom in and move glitch... tried them all - none worked. Maybe if I´d have given it another two hours with senseless "hope it will work eventually"-trial and error-clicking... or maybe all the tuts are missing one tiny but crucial detail - like camera-angle i.e. - but something kept my creator from placing the object like this...

 

I´m pretty good with the switch-glitch timing, usually takes me 3 to 5 attempts to get it placed, but on this one: complete disaster. Had to stop trying for now or I would have fired my controller into my HDTV eventually ;-)

 

To me, it doesn´t matter if I need hundrets of attempts to place a starting-point or to rotate an object, its just substitution of pain... but at least, there are other ways to achieve the same result. Certainly, I will give them all another try... need to cool down fist ;-)

 

But for now I´m hoping Rockstar will give us the option to flip and bank objects by default with a future update...

 

Cheers, Candy

 

p.s. don´t worry about your english, mate! I´m Australian, so it´s quite fine for me!!

does anyone know how to hang cars mid air for an avalanche LTS? ive looked on line and cant find anything that still works. i made a bowling ball avalanche mode but it turns out giant bowling balls arent deadly at all. i need to add some random cars so the runners actually die.

Nice necro. In LTS you have to place the vehicles on the ground, then select them and you should be able to either place them in the air, or on an item in the air which you can afterwards delete to leave them floating.

 

Takes a little time, but can be done. Not sure why they don't just allow them to be placed normally like in Deathmatch creation.

Place a platform prop.

Place a car on the ground then pick it up.

Place car on platform.

Pick up platform and move it away from the car and place it.

Delete the prop.

thanks for the reply but i dont think that works anymore. maybe it was just my game being wonky. i kept getting the message i cant stack weapons after i had just stacked some weapons. i did something else and then it went back to letting me stack the weapons. i'll try it again and see if the cars stay in place this time.

I did it yesterday on XB1. I wanted a car at the bottom of a swimming pool in the Gentry Manor Hotel.

Did the procedure above and it works fine. Car dropped down in to the pool. If you want vehicles to stay in the air until they are shot/hit then I'm not sure on that one

 

There is a way to stack weapons. Going to make a few videos tomorrow.

But a text version;

 

1. Place an actor or prop of similar height - (this is for a height guide)

2. Place a coloured platform prop so that the actors head/top of prop pokes out the top (the platform needs to be above flat ground so that the distance from it to the ground is equal all the way around)

3. Place weapons on the platform

4. Move platform away from the weapons and place it/delete it

5. Move actor away from the weapons and place it/delete it

6. The weapon will be floating and you can see the green halo on the ground

7. You can now place another weapon below it. You can also place a spawn/start point underneath so that the weapon is collected immediately when spawning or starting

8. If you can't place anything underneath (red marker) then the weapon is too close to the ground)

Maybe someone can help me with a problem I have with my fight club sets. I created deathmatches with a UFC cages and boxing rings. I want to put a startpoint for each team inside the cage/ring so one from each team start in the cage while the rest start outside it. The problem I have is it says the startpoint is too close to the enemy. I've looked and found some really old videos about stacking startpoints but the tricks don't work anymore. Does anyone know a way to make this possible?
