Awhile back, around launch, and the months that followed, one thin was apparent-

 

This game was glitchy!

 

Rockstar said they would fix things that affected gameplay, rebalance money and rank.... But they also said they would NOT fix things that were harmless and did not negatively affect the game.

 

I was a huge fan of the gate/launch/car cannon glitch where one player would stand behind a gate and another would drive into it and go flying.

 

But what REALLY gets me?

 

You can no longer do simple things like but a pink vehicle and order a bicycle and also receive it in that color.

 

Now, to get a pink (for example since it's an otherwise unobtainable bicycle color) bmx I'd have to pay at the minimum $3000 for a rebel and then $600 for a bicycle. I'm spending unnecessary extra money on a car I don't need just for some paint! Why was this patched? What harm was letting someone have a crew colored or whatever bicycle doing?

 

Various methods of painting to get custom colors, also gone. Want that bed off your rat loader? Nope. Did you enjoy storing that sheriff's suv you insured at the farthest north garage?

 

Rockstar have no idea what the fans want. Shark cards FTW!

I really miss the old helmet, hat, mask, and glasses glitch with the liquor bottle. The only thing that glitch was guilty of was bringing player custimization to a whole nother level and some pretty good snapmatic photos.

The bottles you can drink from completely stop bullets and anything that could ever obscure a helmet prevents people from seeing it and does affect gameplay because helmets reduce headshot damage.

Oh, you just caught a glimpse of R*'s no fun policy.

r* fun policy was in full effect in gta 4 mp when they left in the swing set glitch. :lol:

Now I've never tried it but with the pink bmx thing I'm assuming you need to purchase a car in pink and then buy the bike. Is that how it works? If so couldn't you just "buy" the free Elegy in pink? Again, I have no idea how it works. Just tossing around ideas.

What baffles me is they patched the old put a crew colour over metal/matte/chrome glitch with a pearlescent, but they have never patched the matte pearlescent glitch that has been in the game since day one, and with the most recent update crew chrome came back but no crew matte or metal =(

rockstar made a game that's 18 months old and I still enjoy on an almost daily basis. I'd say they have a good sense of fun.

 

Also $4k for a pink bike is nothing, have you seen the prices for the paper bag masks?

I am worried way more about "timed out" "cannot connect" "failed to download" and frozen screens where I am looking at the exterior of an apartment building waiting for the game to load but it will never load.

 

These are legit issues that ruin FUN.

 

There is no FUN to be had spending an hour just to play one damn setup, and this happens frequently.

 

Worrying about a pink paint job on a bicycle?

 

If it's about the money here is my suggestion: rob a store. There you go, free money, problem solved.

See the thing is though is that we only see things from our perspective.

 

What if the quirky things that affect our gameplay is affecting something on their end?

 

Inb4 I get flamed or someone says kesh kerds are affected.

Remember when we could open the cargobob and cargoplane hatch, those were the days. But nope, no fun policy strikes again.

Why would you even fix that, that was a great addition to the game and you could do some awesome stuff with that.

Just like in the society. You cannot trust someone who has no punctuality over their own schedule. Because they simply can't keep their own words.

 

I wonder if you still can trust them after all this time. I never take their words seriously anymore.

Gate launching

"dummy" cars

crew color finishes+pearl

3rd Person Snapmatic view

paintable bikes

Sheriff SUV + Police car storage

Purchasable Cargobob

Titan/Cargobob rear door opening

 

That's everything I can remember them fixing that I used and had fun with. Each of these is pretty god damn harmless. Why they fixed them, who knows. It's just irritating how all these small fun things can be removed cause they're "game breaking"

I had my crew color on my kuruma combined with chrome, I purchased chrome paint and then my crew color showed up as chrome after I chose the option, of course it didn't work with metal paints.

Try it for yourself. Purchase chrome paint, purchase crew paint, voilà.

Works on 360, but I find it ugly.

 

I did not finish reading your post DX

Rockstar has an anti-fun political unfortunately.

R.I.P fun :( A snap from my non-youtube glitch gate at the Vinewood Radio Tower.

It either flung vehicles, backfired and killed you, or sh*t like in that picture on thin air. Seems they fixed all the gates. Nobody knew about that gate glitch inless I showed them. Found it purely by accident by taking cover against a granger which was on the other side of the gate, so you take cover against the vehicle through the gate.

Cry me a river.

post of the f*cking year, good job

I try.

 

But to add to the topic, yeah Rockstar is lame for patching fun glitches. It's dumb they went against their word.

You can buy body armor and choose not to display it...

 

So what you just stated, in my mind, is not a good reason at all.

The old bike painting glitch would work with the elegy yes. Also worked with the bifta when it was free.

 

Why they removed it we will never know
