Welcome to the GTA Online General Chat Topic. This topic is exactly as it sounds, a place for general chat relating to GTA Online. This thread is not meant to negate any of the current topics in pla

I'm not sure this was a good idea..  

Someone took off in my car, so I sent them this text

Whats funny for me is that I am at the point now I get frequent messages from others asking them to do a money drop for them. They look at my rank and think I am modder or something. What makes it funny is that I am on Xbox which is impossible to mod on in the first place. I don't know where all these people get the idea its even possible. Go for the dumpster fire that is Gta Online on PC if you want that.

Sometimes I daydream of playing this game on PC. At least I wouldn't be hounded by online subscription fees (*cough* PSPlus */cough*). Then I remember all the modding and gamebreaking bull there.

 

Nah I'm fine where I am lol

You can keep them if you purchased them, I only have the "Howler" one that I purchased only because it's name and the wolf.

 

Edit: The limited time exclusivity most likely works like the limited time Halloween vehicles, but I don't have confirmation of that. It could also be as exclusive as the 2014 Roosevelt back in the day before the second Valentines update.

 

"Howler" Halloween 2019 exclusive wall decoration:
 

Man, I can't believe I didn't grab those. I checked the casino store and checked inside my penthouse what I could place around. I definitely don't have it and although I never cared much for penthouse decorations, I always make sure I grab anything exclusive and time limited. 

I just looked up the newswire for that event and it's definitely mentioned there. Not sure why I didn't grab it.

Well, hopefully it comes back around this year.

Race troll gets juked.

 

 

He was so bad at trolling, he didn't even make single contact with me for the whole 5 lap race.

Do any of you consider stealing heist preps "griefing"?

I agree with destroying Cargo and similar cause it's not worth it, but stealing h-preps is for a good cause, it saves me time. 😄

Stole a thing from a guy and managed to deliver it to my submarine, and afterward he did nothing but trying to chase me down, using BST, Oppressors and Hydras to do so. He failed, and after a missed Orbital strike he messaged me calling me a griefer and toxic.

 

He spend over half a million to chase me all across the map for about an hour, just because I stole something from a mission that takes, what, 5min max and is free?

And I'm the toxic one?

Bad form, and a bit of a dick move* - but not griefing by any stretch.

If you were continually preventing the other player from delivering the heist equipment without making any effort to steal it for you own purposes, then that would be griefing. 

 

( * and let's be honest, if the other player was doing Cayo Perico preps in a public lobby (instead of invite only) then they're asking for trouble (not necessarily deserving of trouble, mind you!)) 

 

But you're right in that you wouldn't want to steal or destroy someone else's cargo or sales - that is griefing in the worst manner, despite the game telling players to do it for some juicy RP.

I don't. It's how businesses should have been from day one TBH.

 

I've long been in favour of business cargo being only able to be stolen and never blown up as it at least gives the player the chance for them/their crew to get back

in there and reclaim their loot to deliver it.

 

It'd reduce the all-too-easy fly-by's and see only those keen/capable look to attack cargo much more so.

 

Don't get me wrong, folk should have the option to go to invite only and be at peace with their businesses too. Some like a peaceful plod either alone or with their crew/mates, but some love the adversarial aspects too and more to balance those is most welcome too.

They really need to implement a vehicle filtering feature for races. If I could, I would ban the GTO/RSX and Pariah for 90% of sports races if I were host. I’m getting a bit sick and tired of seeing rank 400’s+ using nothing but either of those two cars and getting easy wins. I like a bit of diversity in racing.

I certainly don't consider it griefing. I think that it is perfectly within the spirit of the game, and hence legit. Think about it. One of your heist preps for Cayo Perico is to steal the plasma cutter from another crew on another job. So what, therefore, is morally dubious about stealing the plasma cutter from the guy(s) who stole the plasma cutter from the crew? lol

 

You're only stealing time from a player, but he's playing the game and therefore his time is being wasted anyway. That's how I see it. 

 

If I see players shuttling back and forth between their sub and the map in the Sparrow doing heist prep, I occasionally tail them and steal their cargo. The best one is the weapons, when they go inside the Penris Building. Guaranteed that they will exit to the roof and you can ambush them. A proximity mine, or a sticky bomb fitted to their waiting Sparrow usually does the trick.

Don't know if this was already posted anywhere on the forum, but a team of AI researchers developed a new technique to enhance photorealism in videogames, demonstrated it with GTA V, and the results are amazing!

Thing about stealing other people's stuff, it's not like flat out destroying it, but I still think it's bad, the only justified situation to me would be if this person has already tried to kill me or steal something from me or other players, otherwise if someone is going through the process of preparing for the heist, I let them do their thing, maybe even help them if possible.

Is there any way to recover snapmatic photos from PS3 or were they completely deleted?

 

As far as I know it is no longer possible to upload images to the social club on old gen.

Unless you are with a group of players that are friendly enough to help each other boost items on buy/sell missions.  (10 players source a vehicle, but everyone gives theres to one certain player)

I think the point was about heist preps, and help can range from leaving them alone, to offering some sort of protection.

I remember years ago I was doing some sort of mission driving some slow vehicle, this insurgent approached me and hit my vehicle from the back, giving me a boost, I was aiming at their head in case they were going to mess with me but it turns out they were helping lol

 

For selling/sourcing missions I just avoid these players.

Not that I'm hurting for money, but the possibility of being banned from making too much from I/E, that's a pc specific issue no?

Wait what?

There's a possibility of getting banned if you do too much I/E sales?

I'm pretty sure that mishap was fixed ages ago (otherwise people would be getting suspended again already) but for some reason everyone's still paranoid. S'all fine as far as I can see.

Finally got my Canis legend tee, but think I got some others too, not sure.

 

Has anyone else got a category of t-shirts called 'Labels' at the top of the t-shirt subsection?

 

It's got 13 tops in there, 5x 'Civilist' t-shirts and 8x 'MISBHV x KM' hoodies.

 

Or did I miss when these got added? Not noticed them before is all.

Just one of the drawbacks of R*/T2 not letting us know about these things unfortunately. Like you, I do believe they'd have fixed it but a quick mention they have fixed a known error would go a long way into helping people not worry on things like this I reckon. :)

Lately I’ve been taking out broomstick riders with the explosive ammo on the heavy sniper, and I’ve noticed that when they get hit and then fall to their death, it no longer counts as my kill. Instead, it says they died.

 

Did something change?

Can someone do me a solid and tell me if there is a way to get a Solo Public Session on Xbox?

People here on the GTA Forum told me to go to the network setup in the console, go through the settings, and just change your MTU setting to a number between 600 to 700 (the default is more like 1500). This prevents others from joining your public session. 👍

 

It has worked for me on PS4 for years.  Best advice I've ever gotten.  On rare occasions, when the network is a little funky, sometimes it takes a second try to get a session started, but very rare.

I dont think MTU works on Xbox.
