Things you didn't know about GTAO until now

Just found this out!!

 

The scenario is this, you have two garages. One is full and the other has at least one empty slot. When you drive a new car into the full garage, instead of it forcing you to replace one of those vehicles and lose the old one, it will send the old one to your other garage! How handy is THAT?!?!

I just tried this, and it did not work. I lost the vehicle I chose to replace in the full garage I was entering, and I still have one empty slot in my second garage.

Whoa, that sucks...I might try it later...with something I won't miss.

There needs to be an actual empty slot. Not just a spot for a destroyed vehicle. Also, it will tell you it's moving a vehicle to your other garage.

That you can ride on the trams.

 

Also I've noticed a lot of people don't know you can set the objective way point from the quick menu.

I have often gone on the tram with a friend and we put bounties on each other...lots of fun...although people are getting pretty handy at dealing with it effectively haha

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?

That's not true actually.... misconception a lot of people have

 

You 're wrong..

 

 

He is not wrong, you are. Thats just hovering, not floating.

Tried it again, same result (loss of car). This is on my second character who's sole purpose at the moment is stealing and selling gang cars. I have a 10 car garage in the city (near the gangs) and a 2 car in paleto bay (where I can sell in peace).

 

So all 12 slots are full. I then sell one car from my paleto garage. If I leave that slot empty, then go down to the city and jack another gang car, when I drive it into my 10 car garage in the city it replaces one of the cars there, while the slot in paleto bay stays empty. No destroyed vehicle in it.

 

Maybe it only works when you are first filling your second garage and have never had any car in the slot? Anyone else want to try it?

With me, I have two 10 car garages, one of which is my apartment. I have the apartment with 9 cars and the garage with 10. I go to put a new car in the garage and I get a message that it is moving one of my existing cars to my apartment. If you don't get this message, CANCEL!

When a helicopter hovers above the water, with a small part submerged it's still hovering. If it would float, it should float when you exit it as well, but guess what? It doesn't.

 

This is just the game physics when you're low with a heli, it hovers slightly above the water level. Not floating, like boats do ;)

 

Thank you.

Press too hard on the brakes or exit the chopper and it'll sink. I just tested it and my chopper went to the bottom of the water...

 

Now the Leviathan in San Andreas can float on water. The Cargobob can't do that without somebody driving the helicopter.

If it's not floating, it's not floating. If you just full throttle into the water or land on it you don't float. It does'nt feel like floating either, I'm just trying to make clear it does'nt actually float before people try to crash their cargobobs into the ocean :)

The waves push the vehicle up, you can lean the vehicle while not touching throttle or brake and it will cruise along the surface of the water in the direction you try and lean. As long as the engine is running and you dont press L to decend it will stay there 'floating'.

 

It's floating for semantics sake.

I just found out last month that you can be picked up with a helicopter if your in the water. Just have the pilot hover close and youll hop in.

 

I just noticed this recent up date that your hat can be knocked off during a fist fight

A lot of people are unaware wearing a helmet lets you survive a headshot, even at close range. Shotguns are the problem solver here.

 

A lot of people still don't know that when it stalls(loading circle) just before a job starts, that you can still push start/pause and choose from the options of new session/join friends/leave - was pulling the plug everytime before I got told this.

 

Also handy as f*ck on PS3 for when it stalls, if it allows you to anyway - hit PS button, go left to Account Mgmt and hit Triangle = Sign Out

 

When it freezes theres no solution thou!

The horns from the business updates include 2 or 3 horns (I'm tried and have forgotten) which play this when played in sequence: http://youtu.be/cFkZQ84YDlk

 

Why? you may ask...

 

Here in the UK, we have a show called the Apprentice which is all about business (I don't watch it as it's too boring) but the title theme tune is that music.

If I remember right about the helmets, this only works with the ones your character puts on while riding a motorcycle and not that you add from your inventory.

don't

I saw this thing on gta mythbusters on youtube where they tested this

and they found only the helmet you automatically put on when getting on a bike protects your head

the ones you put on trough your inventory do nothing.

 

 

and

 

 

edit: damn, ninja-ed while I was finding the video's

damn me and my thoroughness! XD

Tanks don't spawn in Zancudo anymore.. I've stolen 8 jets this week and haven't seen one Rhino spawn next to the hanger. I could be lucky or they're really gone. :O

This is more of a question based on an observation of something I think I noticed...

 

Is the time and weather the same for everyone online no matter what session they are in?
