I discovered you can buy shoes in Ammunation about 1 second ago

You know you can swap lock-on targets with L1/LT on the buzzard or jet? or that all helicopters can float on the sea surface?

A few things actually;   You can drink yourself to death in your apartment.   Women have a single off the shoulder top that can be worn with a jacket (the black tuxedo top). Found this out just ye

The game actually notifies you that Gang Attacks are "suppressed" during Freemode Events if there's conflict.

The Banshee 900R has a unique retangular rear view mirror with sharp edges that is based on the rear view mirror you see in racecars.

and yet you can start gang attack and fortified or executive search at the same time.

NPCs shop for shoes in Ammunation (OP callback!)

Nothing new, really; first time I personally encountered NPCs inside Ammu-nation was September 6, 2016.

 

But for some reason they are quite rare--no idea why? My best guess is that GTA Online has a limit on maximum objects/NPCs currently spawned, and if it drops low enough, may spawn in some "extra" NPCs since it can handle it at the time?

I see them all the time but only in Paleto Bay ammunation.

Probably introduced in the same update that brought scuba gear to MP characters but..

 

TIL that if you dive off of a dinghy (the same boat used in the humane labs raid for Michael), your character will don the same kind of rebreather used in the mission.

It doesn't appear to do much, or at the very least only slows down lung capacity drain rate. Also appears to remain on your face until replaced in the accessories menu.

The Itali GTO is 4WD.

 

Which is nice, because it's usually only the f*cking front wheels on the ground.

Put it on the first suspension option and add a spoiler and it's one of the best cars to drive in the game. It's the type of car that you need to be absolutely certain you can go full throttle before mashing the gas which makes it feel way more realistic than most others.

Sage advice, I may actually buy that thing next time it's on sale.

One reason I love the Swinger is that you have to work at driving it.  🙂

The other is that it's FAST!  🙃

 

And that's one of the problems of playing on PC using keyboard: you're using either full throttle or full brake, full left or full right steering, etc.

Ya gotta learn to blip the keys to get anywhere without crashing.

You can walk faster inside interiors  by holding down the run button.

 

Pay attention: It's WALK faster, you still won't be able to run.

I'm almost to 100 days IRL of gameplay (that's 2400 hours) and I saw something last night I've never seen before. I saw a disembodied player character have a nervous breakdown.

I'm still on the 360 and last night a modder teleported 8 to 10 of us up to the top of the Maze Bank tower. 

After being there a while one of them left the session leaving behind their female character trying to run away but can't. A disembodied player character won't derez if another player character can see them. And since we were on top of the tower there was no place for them to go. The character ran down to the lower level and cowered crouched down at the edge in sight of another player that was on the window washing rig. When I first saw the character it was trying to hide and was crying a little. Later on it had it's head buried in it's hands crying more. The next time it had it's hands on top of it's head just bawling and wailing very loud like it was having a breakdown. I have never seen this behavior from any NPC. And it was very loud. Even the threatened customers during the Pac Standard Finale don't go to this extreme. It was very unsettling. fortunately the nearby player went back up to the helipad. And after I went too the disembodied character disappeared.

Whether this is true or not has bugged me since After Hours heh. It does look like they hustle slightly faster, but I'm not sure it is actually faster? I never got round to timing it. NB I have walked a *lot* of miles in my nightclub - over 1000 MacBeths' worth.

From what I can say, yes, you're faster. And to top that, depending on your choosen walking animation, you can save some miliseconds, too ;) (female PC here)

To be fair it's faster...about 0.5 mph faster.

That brings up some....horrifying existential type questions about what happens to our characters after we log off

Unsure if anyone mentioned this before but they changed the Time Trials.

 

It's 100k now and you can't use weaponized meme vehicles anymore. Things like the Vigilante, Scramjet, etc.

^^ Dang! Didn't know this either--wonder what the PC keyboard equivalent is (same button/key used to fire the missile)?

WHAT THE HELL?????

 

This actually works! The camera points at the target that the homing missile is going to hit.

 

Works on the Buzzard but doesn't work on the Deluxo.

I think everything on that painting references something, its full of easter eggs.

- the obvious ones: UFO as a lamp, aliens, sasquatch, ghost and the beast (that also appeared in sp) 
- Under the egg there's the smiley face and pink dildo from San Andreas
- White ball might be shooting the moon to make it bigger

There's also a doll hidden behind books but I have no idea what that suppose to be.

If you rob a store and point a gun with no ammo at the cashier, he will start collecting the cash for you. But if you pull the trigger and he realises you have no ammo, he will always shoot at you.

Apparently this was a bug that was fixed--from the 1.47 patch notes:

 

* Fixed an issue that resulted in no ambient population within Ammu-Nation.
