I felt like a wasteland once, but then I used the bathroom and the feeling went away, soon after. ;)

 

But, seriously, I know what you mean. Traveling on my Troncycle, the neon colors looked pretty great against the snow, even more so at night.

Wanted to make a festive killing montage but life happened. Well if I live to see Holiday Season 2018 hopefully some friends and I can make it happen.

Bye snow :(

Personally, I'd like it if R* made the snow a random weather event starting from Thanksgiving up through the end of February. Just put it in the the weather cycle for a few months so that it can randomly occur during game play. Frankly though, I don't see a logical reason for R* to turn off all of our free festive clothing. We log in, grab all that free stuff, we should be allowed to use it anytime that we want, at any point in the year that we want. Why limit when players can wear tacky, flashing, festive sweaters? The red and green festive pants can be worn with regular shirts. Why not let us wear them whenever we want?

thats actually a really good idea having it as part of the weather cycle, but it won't happen. but i do like the fact they remove the festive clothing. it would really bug me if i saw someone running around in one of the festive outfits in mid June.

While the Dune FAV sucks; with snow it actually sucks more.

 

I don't care though. Still enjoying the snow.

Sorry for the late stuff but I have been busy lately. When it was snowing a week ago, I decided to do a picture from the ocean view of the city of Los Santos. :)

Damn you, Sony!

 

Mandatory firmware update = have to restart the PS4 = no more snow.

 

Well, at least I was able to stretch it to today.

As soon as I saw it I thought "that's f*cked the restmoders". Think you got the record this year though!

Sad thing was I also had all of the sales for the last 5 weeks all together.

Glad I picked up the Nakota at 25% off while I could.

I wanted to try the GT500 in the snow, but too late

I wouldn't mind the snow so much but they made it so the skies are basically unuseable as you can't see where you're flying even in real life the sky isn't like that so no idea why they though it was a good idea to make it like that in the game.

 

it would be nice if they allowed regular weather patterns such as sunshine, overcast ect with the snow on the ground

It did shift between “foggy”, overcast, and direct sunlight while we had snow, but it shifted quickly between. When I was Sandking-farming I would see hard shadows when I started the loop and soft shadows when I made a second lap; on the third lap I could barely see that car lot from the hill and the next time I could see the next Sandking’s color/style as soon as it spawned.

 

It felt like there were fewer instances of blind white-out storm conditions as they had in previous years. Possibly because of significantly more aircraft available to the players, now. In 2013/2014 and 2014/2015 it could get so bad (away from the lights of the city) that flying in a fast aircraft was nearly suicidal. Even from last year I have a recording of delivering Cocaine or Meth in Dodo in a snowstorm and the visibility of terrain/obstructions/water was only a few plane-lengths.

That's when you go into FPS mode and use instruments to fly.

The same instruments that include a 300-degree compass?

Instruments don’t include TCAS
