@giant beer discussion: the beer has been in that photo since I first saw it - possibly in the newswire. There are similar structures I think, water tanks or something, which could explain people not noticing (in game, not the photo commenters. Swagman, the 'designs' I think are the letters B E E R in the arches. I'll go and take a proper look in an hour or two....at both sides.

 

Its not on a high traffic route - for me its a bit like the dinosaur, I knew it was out there but I didn't really know where even though I'd seen it once or twice.

I just learnt this from LehPhatGer-bears thread on mission payouts http://gtaforums.com/topic/712049-gtao-mission-payouts/: Thank him for it.

 

When doing The LOs Santos Connection In the first poart of the mission where you get the GPS co-ordiantes, there will be a crate you can shoot open and steal 2 coke packages for $2k. There are also crates with packages at the hanger at the airport in this mission that you can get more coke from. Total bonus is around 4K.

There are crates at each stage of the mission. One at the Drug Deal, one at the Laptop location, and 4-6 at the Airport location. Going in with a Buzzard and blowing sh*t up often destroys there so I find the best approach to this is to actually do this mission the old fashioned way.

 

Last time i did this mission solo the crates got me an extra 10k or so.

 

When the mission doesn't bug the sh*t out that is.

GTA V sucks ass

Being a brain dead moron that can't post anything other than "GTA sucks ass" must suck fairly hard too. I pity you and your lacklustre trolling skills.

I'm extremely unobservant...I'm sure that there are many things that I still haven't noticed - I only noticed that 'Crazy Guy driving a black Sentinel XS' about 2 weeks ago...he tries to run me over virtually every time I spawn in San Andreas, but it took me several months to realise it!!

I'm the same with the lack of observation... When I was reading on these forums about the sentinel hitman I thought they were talking about a notorious player haha. Might as well mention here that I realised they sold sunglasses at ammunation also...Duh

 

 

Ammunation is the same as a clothes store.

except no pant..and hats...but yeah...pretty much...news to me :/

This LS Connection info is great...I always new there was big bucks at the airport and only recently found out about the crate at the gps van...but at the laptop also!? If only it wasn't so sh*t hard to do solo because the preferred method of completing this mission by most people is the blow the sh*t out of everything with the buzzard.

You can equip a parachute and scuba gear at the same time, thus you can jump from a plane/helicopter, parachute into the water, then swim underwater indefinitely.

 

HOW TO:

-Aquire a parachute (usually default when you get in helicopters or planes)

-Fly to a place where you can aquire scuba gear (a submarine place or Dinghy place)

-Park plane/helicopter in shallow water, shallow enough so that you can take off again or go back onto land to take off (helicopter easier)

-Get out of helicopter/plane, get in submarine/Dinghy, get out (scuba gear now automatically equipped)

-Quickly get back in helicopter/plane before your character takes the scuba gear off (he does so automatically when you get to land)

-Your heli/plane is in shallow water so he shouldnt take it off straight away

-Take off. Now parachute is equipped and so is parachute.

 

You can buy scuba gear? :blink:

What is a Dinghy place?

I mean as in go to either the Submarine (submersible) vehicle spawn point or a 'Dinghy' ( http://gta.wikia.com/Dinghy ) spawn point on the map. They have scuba gear inside them, you automatically equip it.

I think that's just single-player, no? There's no scuba gear in Online mode, as far as I'm aware...

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

 

Even if they did, how would you get them out without a cargobob, and how would the bob survive while being attacked at 4 stars?

 

 

Some stuff I didn't see here, maybe it's known maybe it's not.

 

two heavy sniper rounds to the left rear wheel well of any car will blow it up. don't hit the tire, you need to shoot the wheel well, between the fender and tire, but it's pretty forgiving.

 

If you are drinking a pisswasser and someone headshots you with a sniper rifle it will break the bottle and stop the head shot. This is by no means an effective way to avoid a headshot I just found it funnny that the bottle would actually stop the first shot.

When you change the radio station your character actually leans forward and...changes the radio station. It might only work when you're stationary, though.

On that note I wonder do many people know that you can dance in the car as a quick action...I think its only available in the car...

call lester to get cops to turn a blind eye

circle the hangers once or twice till a tank spawns follow the tank the driver will usually park the tank and jump out

I just found out yesterday that there's an altimeter on the copilot camera on the Buzzard.

L1 and R1 cycle missile locks on the jet as well as the Buzzard btw.

there is an altimeter kind of thing in the radar when in a flying vehicle, the horizontal lines...

Seriously??? That's what this forum has been reduced to? We now have to explain the meaning of the word 'float'.

 

If you exit the helicopter and it doesn't sink then it's floating. If you have the engine running and have to keep actually flying it then it's not floating. If you disagree with this in any way then you are a moron.

Actually, I'm wrong about the Rhino spawns in Zancudo.. I went in there last night and saw 5-6 tanks spawn next to the hangers. I just about shat a trailer when they popped up. So much for that lucky tankless spree... I hate dumping my money on something as pitiful as "Blind Eye."

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?

 

I've been in the same lobby with buddies and it was night for me and day for them. I don't know if that's standard or just a glitch.

I belive Its allways dark in LS :( the few noon houres, Its raining .

You're absolutely right. I've just ended up at the giant beer completely randomly and the two pictures are definitely of the same thing.

but if I'm not mistaken the gates are closed, so you can't drive the tank out.

 

I don't know why I keep forgetting about the cops turn blind eye option. It would make it a hell of a lot easier to liberate a jet lol.

Cargobob the tank out when you have enabled the cops turn blind eye option. I've never done it but can't see why it wouldn't work. Unless you're painfully slow at hooking the tank.

On the road that passes Madrazos compound, north.

 

Actual thread contribution: I learned just now that theres a single pitch n putt hole at Martins compound but its purely decorative.

Actual useful thing: its not that long ago that I learned you can stop on a steep slope where your vehicle wants to keep rolling by using the hand brake.

Not to hammer on a sore spot, but the effect the cargobob has above water is actually a bit of both hovering, and floating.

 

It's a combination of ground effect, and displacement from the aircrafts body.

 

So, it is semi submerged, but without the rotors giving thrust, it would sink. It is capable of breaking the surface of the water, being affected by waves, but it cannot float without aid from the powerplant and rotors.

technically you're correct. The best kind of correct lol

Today I noticed that if you hold down the button when eating a snack, you get more health out of it. I was a little upset with myself for not finding that out earlier.

this actually has something to do with the double tap to preform long animation. If you press and hold a/x to eat a snack they'll drop the first one after one bite, the second press and hold they will eat the whole ego chaser.

 

But if you double tap and hold the first time they will eat/smoke the long continuous animation from the start.

 

Or just eat snacks in cover or in a car so you don't need any animation at all
