Curious what people think about it. Hopefully a simple "I like it; I don't like it." poll will suffice. Tell me what you thought about it below. Personally, despite it's many, many flaws. (There are almost too many to list, to be honest.) I love the update. Simply because I am an aircraft enthusiast, and this adds a number of aircraft to the game that I like, along with the ability to mod past ones. I also love the access to Fort Zancudo. I sure would like a Savage Custom, though...

I enjoy it,we finally got an Aircraft themed update,with Missions created especially for Jets,Planes,Helicopters.
The payouts are bad if we compare to other activities

Soundtrack really got me in the mood to finally give an try on learning how to use the Hydra,basically R* kept with the good work around soundtrack.

We again face ourselves with another annoying ''partner'',that will call we everytime someone is doing an Hangar mission.

And most important,aircraft costumization,and the return of the Hunter.

 

9/10 would give an 10 but hey,these payouts really deceptioned me.

Pretty meh to me. The new aircraft is very nice and a welcome addition but the most important part of an update for me.. the gameplay.. is severely lacking here.

 

6/10 personally. I liked Gunrunning more than this.

I liked Gunrunning more than this.

Now that is brutal criticism lol.

 

Personally, I love it just for finally adding more attack aircraft, as well as flares, etc. Some big flaws though. Not having flares for the old aircraft, the new work paying you basically nothing, the Hunter cannon needing a co-pilot, etc.

Gunrunning just had more to do than this update. It kept me coming back for quite awhile.

 

I didn't care too much for the paywalls as I saved up a boat load of cash during the six months prior.

Gunrunning will always stay in my heart too,you know pretty hard to win an DLC where i can raid Humane labs and steal an railgun,but i didn't understand what you meant with ''the gameplay'' lacking,could you elaborate?

The cargo steal missions, while quite varied and different can get extremely tedious and easily run for more than ten minutes for some of them. It's just the same go here and fetch that type of stuff but with slower aircraft this time around.

 

They didn't even add any special vehicle missions or VIP Work of the sort for the accompanying aircraft. Literally the only new thing to do in this update gameplay wise are the cargo steal missions and that's it. For those not too keen with aircraft, they won't really play around with the new planes/choppers much besides using them during the steal missions.

 

Besides the new aircraft, I don't feel like there was much content added with this update. Import/Export and Gunrunning in comparison felt FAR more massive despite their faults.

Thank you for elaborating,i am a little lazy,now that i understood your point i completely agree with you,i guess i am enjoying more this DLC because i rarely used Aircraft before this update,so it is really fun to drive my Hydra around fighting Merryweather while i destroy their Cargo Plane,also i miss the Special Vehicle missions and the Mobile Operations we had in I/E and Gunrunning,they could have easily have added a few ''special aircraft cooperative missions'' in this DLC too :(.

Update itself is meeh, 5/10

BUT

-it returned stunt cars downforce

-added lot of small fixes (T20/Nero spoiler),

-buffed Savage armor - now can stand explosion, blows at 2nd etc)

-there is great update to race creator coming soon.

-Flare gun is very handy when someone is homing You.

-Thermal googles can be used with more weapons. You dont need sniper MK2 thermal scope. Now can use advanced one (better range) when using googles. Pretty much every weapon now. Good for taking out guys hiding in bushes or so.

 

These small factors are lot better than boring update itself. So overal 8/10, one of better updates, but not coz of it's main content.

Not much to form an opinion so far. I bought the cheaper LSIA hanger, tastefully repainted a few of my aircraft and now I'm just waiting for the Hunter and the P-51.

 

In other news, I bought the Jetsam CargoBob this evening and had a bunch of fun with it. :)

I like it for the most part. My main gripes right now is

 

1) I hate the Pegasus style spawn points for aircraft's. Request a PV, spawns in front of you. Request a Special Vehicle, spawns in front of you. Request a aircraft, spawns miles away. Yea that needs to be fixed.

 

2) I don't like the new stunt plane. It's fast by way the f*ck to sensitive on the controls. Trying to fly that thing I'm all over the place, seems almost impossible to keep it steady. So Mallard is still king of the stunt planes. fyi, I haven't flown the tiny little toy plane yet.

 

 

 

 

On the plus side I love the new fighter jet. Savage rocket system on a fighter jet seems very OP lol. And the old school war planes are awesome as well. The Hunter seems cool but as I thought it's basically a Savage without the machine gun. Hunter has the same homing rockets as the Savage and a burst fire mode for rockets which only fire straight. It has a mounted machine gun but we seem to be unable to use it. I do think the Hunter has more straight line speed then the Savage, but both seem similar when turning around.

 

I like the Seabreeze, it's mounted machine guns are crap but I find it's a really nice plane to fly around plus it has the cluster bomb option. And it's awesome that we're finally going to get to be able to own the Lazer, eventually.

 

The new supply missions for the most part are pretty fun. You'll have a easier time in most cases just ignoring the vehicle Ron provides you, walking into your base and grabbing a Buzzard or Savage (or Hydra if your good with the VTOL mode). Using a Savage makes the mission where you protect the Titan a hell of a lot easier. I also prefer the Savage over the Hunter in the "destroy the beacons" mission, also go with the Savage on the mission you need to destroy trash trucks.

 

The Savage explosive round minigun is a tool of great use my friends.

 

In the ambush mission ignore the provided Buggard and use a Buzzard. Blast the NPC's to hell with your rockets, land and pick up crate, fly back to base. You can outrun the ai heli's easily in a Buzzard.

 

The only time I really use the provided vehicle is on missions that give me the new fighter jet, the mission where you destroy cargo planes and wreck a bunch of Lazers.

I like the hangar, finally I can costumise my aircraft and display them, but I'm not interested in any new aircraft from this DLC, I know many of you love those planes so it is a good update thanks rockstar.

I actually like this update because it gave us hangars to own and lets us customize our jets.

The whole business side of it is meh. Some of the missions were a bit entertaining, but it's just the same as the couple of last DLCS.

 

The planes are good though.

And the Cossie.

 

I voted that I liked it, but honestly it's somewhere below that, but over "meh".

I like it just for the fact, that we are able to gain Access to an additional area (FZ)

 

Most of the planes are cool, as is the Retinue.

 

For an update with tons of stuff that is really expensive, I would expect higher payouts though.

That would only be fair.

 

BTW I cannot wait to get a Hand on that Rapid GT Classic. Oh my...

6/10 personally. I liked Gunrunning more than this.

 

That's my thoughts pretty much. Disappointed there were no aircraft missions with it. I know some like the sourcing missions but I've only done a few and I think I will pass. Not even for the discount on the Hunter. I'll take a massive hit to the wallet to by that. Having a bunch of new aircraft is very much welcome and long overdue and another positive is having the Savage's armour upgraded but I would've loved to have seen more customization for the Buzzard and Savage beyond just paint jobs. Oh well, still nice to change their colours I guess.

I really like the bump in aircraft but was hoping some of them would expand the selection of VIP missions. I do these constantly between other jobs so I'll always welcome more. Missed opportunity with this DLC.

I don't like the new super, I don't want 90% of the new air vehicles, I don't want a hangar, I don't want to do the same crates/bunker/I/E crap I have been grinding for the past 2 months. The only things for me in this update are the Escort but it is really overpriced at 600k and I refuse to pay that much for a sports classic and the Ultralight but that requires a $1.2 million hangar that I don't want and a $1.1 million mod shop that I also don't want. One good thing is I had $8 million I was going to spend this update that I bought a Sultan RS and biker clubhouse with instead.

Once again Rockstar strikes with their weirdness. Wish I could put smoke on the Besra, (I have mine painted blue and yellow like a blue angel) or even a simple 7.62mm gun. Savage can't have flares, but can use the gun. Hunter can't use the gun, but has flares.. :\ I have never seen a human in existence use the Valkyire. Please let us be able to dumb fire the forward cannon, or better yet, give us the gimbled aiming camera from the flippin' Hanglider! Why can we solo use the hanglider gun, with gimbal, but not one of these military-grade vehicles have usable gimbals, lol. Rockstar as usual is all over with their odd "balance" and leaving stuff out. Like the Lazer. What on that thing could possibly cost 6.5 million, lol. They're free, lol. The Hydra has VTOL, the Molotok is basically a Lazer, with Savage missile system. Why is it so expensive?!

One of the best updates. We already had to many cars and garages, time to let other people have what they like.

I dont really care about Crates, new or old, but if we have the same import/export for planes that would be awesome

i like the update BUT it lacks a couple of aircraft.

 

1 the stuka. i mean we get bombers so why not 1 of the most (in)famous divebomber from ww2? ok i get it,it has a dark history but still.

 

some aircraft are just weird choices. the seabreeze... could have been replaced by the stuka for example.

 

2.A10 warthog. srsly why is this not in here?

 

3. nokota should have been in the update from day 1. it would go perfectly alongside the rogue.

 

jetpack. we have ron,a character that has a "i make jetpacks if you want" vibe to him and it's a airial update.

 

 

now some of the liveries are also a bit lackluster imo. it's a shame that there isn't a army camo for the rogue. i know it's a trainer plane but it is used for some combat aswell IRL. same with the hyda would have been nice to have a camo like the lazers in ford zancudo.

 

no special missions are also a letdown.

 

that being said i still like the update and the new aircraft are solo player friendly. you can use all weapons alone on most of them.so that is a HUGE plus.

 

 

 

and the aircraft that have been added are nice aswell.

So far the only think I like about it is the Ford Escort and you can paint your planes.

 

I'll stick with car import/export.

I´ll give this update a 2/10 , just because of some new aircraft that are actually good , and the fact that we own a Hangar now....

without those new vehicles this DLC would deserve a 0 from me : very OP NPCs , very poor payments , unlogical supply/sell missions ( they gave me the Rogue plane and had to pick up a crate in the mountain full of trees , or that selling mission with 3 Havocs to sell 1 -ONE- crate) , very short time for the missions .... this DLC is literally unplayable as a lone wolf... I played for 3 hours yesterday , just to collect and sell crates for 70k total earnings...

oh , did I mention that it´s a worse crate 2.0 DLC ?

to sum up , this is the WORST GTAO DLC to date ....

i thought it was meh. sure it added some neat planes but honestly i dont see myself using them very much. the pay is kind of crappy. it just felt empty compared to previous updates. but i will say its cool to see ron again. he is a cool character. and the fact that you can customize aircraft is cool too. but other than that im not a big fan of the update. gunrunning was better in my opinion.
