early this morning i broke down and bought the cheapest hanger at lsia and it left me at about $1.5 million (after upgrades, including upgrading my hydra and the free cuban 800), what's the best cargo to source and sell?

Narcotics and medical supplies.

i tried to do the narcotics run twice, the first attempt failed really bad for me (i had to do stunts in a plane (fly under bridges etc) my stunt flying wasn't good, i kept crashing). :lol:

but my second narcotics run went way better. :)

but i'll keep trying and any advice for which crates are the best ones will be helpful. :)

if you want to recover your investment, play literally anything else

 

maybe chain rob stores

too much work for little pay (they only pay about $1.200 at most per store).

ceo work is getting not worth it (too many players attack you for almost no reason).

plus i've given up on heists since almost no one ever joins plus i've sold my apartment.

the stores thing was a joke, mostly

 

if you think attacks during ceo work are bad, they're worse during smuggling

 

also, set mtu to 650

sorry i don't mod.

but my hanger plus upgrades did cost as much as i thought it would earlier today, i thought it would leave me under a million but it left me over $1.5 million (maybe i was lucky).

Fly upside down in a hydra for 3 minutes.

 

 

 

The crate types make no difference to the missions given, I've had them all over various different types of product.

As they've already said - sourcing is gonna suck just as much no matter which type you go for.

 

For selling, Narcotics/Medical Supplies/Chemicals are best because a full 50 units (of one type) will give you a 70% bonus, for a total sale price of $850,000.

 

I don't know how much you upgraded your hangar, but if you bought it with all the trimmings, it'd have set you back $3,620,000 - and that's just for the cheapest hangar with all the best upgrades.

 

To get that money back you'd need to fill your hangar to capacity 4.25 times, and then have perfect sales every time - I'd advise against selling alone... there's just not enough time imo

for floor and lighting i stayed with default and office i took the cheapest (same with living space)), but i upgraded mechanic.

and i upgraded my cuban 800 and my hydra (better paintjob).

Take everyone's advice and only do the 42 supply runs to unlock all the trade prices(this includes trade prices for the currently unreleased aircraft as well). Doing this will take a great many hours and will only get you about $43k in profit(it's only worth it for plane discounts if you plan to buy any), you're literally better off doing nothing but VIP/CEO work such as Sightseer and Headhunter to make money.

What's the best way to make others believe you're stupid? Repeatedly spell hangar as "hanger".

 

FOF8I4IHLA23JBN.LARGE.jpg

 

Also, changing MTU is not "modding" FFS.

 

A hangAr is not bought to earn money off of, but bought for aircraft discounts, ability to turn aircraft into PV's, and for access to Ft. Zancudo. Buying a hangAr at LSIA was yet another dumb move, because like that you missed out on the latter.

When I was doing them for discounts I found the art supplies made the best profit. I stopped running this business though because well I think it sucks personally as a way to make a decent income.

1. For Counterfeit Goods & Alcohol & Tobacco you get a 5% bonus for 5 crates & it goes up an additional 5% for every 5 crates until it reaches a 50% bonus for 50 crates totaling $750,000.

 

2. For Animal Material, Art & Antiques, & Jewelry & Gemstone you get a 12% bonus for 10 crates & it goes up an additional 12% for every 10 crates until it reaches a 60% bonus for 50 crates totaling $800,000.

 

3. For Chemicals, Narcotics, & Medical Supplies you get a 35% bonus for 25 crates & it goes up to a 70% bonus for 50 crates totaling $850,000.

 

 

 

Well, you are in luck ... 2x$ on sales!

 

If you are planning to do the sales solo, sell at 9-10 crates to be manageable. So options 1 & 2 above are the way to go.

 

Also, mission difficulty depends on the cargo you are smuggling. The cargo types in number 1 are the easiest missions, number 2 are medium & number 3 are the hardest. (same deal as I\E).

 

Good luck.

i did the narcotics crate run again last night and i got the crate run where i have to do airplane stunts again (i failed), i just have to admit i'm not good at doing stunts even with helicopters! :lol:

how much do you get if you manage to fill the cheapest hangar and sell all?

It's not even required to Fly Under Bridges, and Knife Flights. If you're able to fly upside down for 3 minutes, you're done.

i tried that, i flew upside down close to the ground and it made no difference.

Actually, robbing stores would probably net you about the same if not more profit overall when you factor in collection and delivery times plus Ron's "cut" of the profits after selling.

 

You could rob 10 convenience / liquor stores down town in about 20 minutes which would net $11,000 - $14,000. This is already more than you could make by completing that "Stunt" mission you noted above (especially with your hangar at LSIA and the fact that the crate in question more often than not will spawn at the Grapeseed air strip) and then whatever sell mission they give you which, even with one crate, could end up requiring you to deliver two containers via Cargobob to various points around the city.

 

Yes, robbing stores will give you a wanted level, but the AI cops are a far sight easier to deal with than some douche canoe on an oppressor who is not only TOLD to kill you but provided a glowing red beacon telling him where you are at all times.

There's a trick to only have the ppl you want in the lobby. If you're on Xbox one, just test your NAT type and it'll kick everyone but you out of the session.
