OK? What Has The Doomsday Heist Update (1.42) Changed?

Recommended Posts

Pedinhuh

 

They've increased the prices for launch? Figures. But man...

 

The costs for skipping the Prep missions.

Prep: Paramedic Equipment = 70000, 94500

Current Value - Default Value (Set by game)

You know what's funny? If you dial 911 in your phone and call an ambulance, you can finish said prep mission under 40 seconds, for free.

Most hilarious thing is that after you called 911 Lesters tells you something like "Of course you can just call 911, but i don't wanted to tell because its pretty obvious"

So yesterday I was calling in my Hunter and as it was I arriving I called in a CEO vehicle and the Hunter spawned on top of the CEO vehicle. Anyone else have this happen? This didn't happen before the update on Tuesday.

Did the Vagos gang attack (South Los Santos) a day or so ago, and there were Triads(?) characters instead of Vagos..! Accents and all. Go figure.

 

I left the area and came back sometime later, and the Vagos had returned.

 

I have no reason to believe it was someone using "mod" menus...just some kind of weird, new bug. Never seen that happen in-game until now.

 

Edit (Feb. 1st): Happened again last night; definitely a bug:

I've been seeing a few more DLC cars being driven around by regular NPC's. Mainly cars from the Hipster Update. Has this always been the case? I'm usually in Invite, or Solo Public lobbies, and have never seen that before.

They finally made the reserve parachute semi-reliable (on xb1 at least) in that selecting a new one in the Style menu will give you a live reserve until you use it (only when you collect a Primary eg enter an aircraft or oppressor). Previously you had to visit Ammunation to be sure of having one.

 

In practice this means you should choose/flip a Reserve when you first enter an aircraft, and after that you should be good until you use it.

They are online sometimes, mainly near the docks area, Vagos hood area near the docks. Around Maze bank Arena.

You can drive one if you own it, otherwise it will not let you drive one.

Am I missing something, or is this some new epic trolling from Rockstar in Moving Target (especially in a Panto, in the rain, FFS)? Seriously.

 

I've been doing Moving Target since it was introduced, and until 1.42 have never run into the "Hey, how about locking the player into their vehicle?" BS.

Had a very strange thing happen last night that I'm wondering if anyone else has encountered?

 

As usual, was a CEO in the process of delivering an Import/Export car (below) in a public session. While en route, my vehicle delivery route, status as a CEO, and mission are suddenly cancelled when I get the following BS message on my screen (below).

 

My vehicle delivery is somehow instantly cancelled (with an MC that I never started--was a CEO, and you can't be both at the same time), and my car is now reduced to a $5,000 delivery to the nearest police station--which I did, because that was the only option I had at that point:

 

import_export_bug_or_script_kiddie.png

 

This is either a horrible bug that needs prompt fixing by R*, or a new malicious tactic that script kiddies can now do to you while you're trying to collect a potentially big $80k I/E reward for delivering a Top Range vehicle (or ANY range for that matter).

Never happenedme on PS4. You play on PC? Then, moddders/hackers do this.

Will post video later tonight to back this up, but last night was the first time I noticed at least one tarpaulin covering a pile of "stuff" now reacting to wind in-game. They used to be purely static:

 

 

 

 

 

Until now, only a few other things used to react to wind, e.g. the flag/banner outside the southern-most LSC.

 

IMO, it appears(?) R* is slowly making updates to the world of Los Santos--at least things that were probably switched off to save RAM on last-gen consoles.

Hmmm, I was wondering about that wind thing last night while I was dropping bombs on ii_votemeout_ii to collect a bounty. It looks like there's wind pushing the bombs but they appear to not actually go off trajectory.

 

Are bombs affected by wind? I see trees moveand the smoke trail for bombs moves.

^^ I don't think so, but you never know! I'll have that video posted tonight/early tomorrow (grabbed it last night).

 

Done; see my previous post above. ^^

 

I know for a fact that I've never seen any tarpaulins move before--they've always been like concrete.

They removed the matte/metal pearlescent glitch =( sad times indeed

I was wondering, but I was in the MOC when I was trying. Sheesh. After a hiatus it took me a while to remember the simple mechanics of it. Cherish those that you have, some great color combos will be missed.

Well, me and my friend just learned (the hard way) that the APC and Valkyrie during the Gunrunning resupply mission now uses their respective explosive weapons...

There is no reason why the AI during the convoy resupply mission needs to use the APC cannon. How am I supposed to stop them when they blow up me and my car in one shot. Then spawn kill me 4 times until they get out of range.

 

Yeah, our usual tactic of a roadblock didn't work very well. The damn valkyrie spawnkilled us long after the APC was out of range too. However we grabbed a turreted Insurgent and easily destroyed the Valkyrie far outside its range, then my friend, who drove, easily catches up APC, dodging shots during the entire time, and lets me shot out both driver and gunner.

 

Harder than it used to be, I like it though.

Catching up, just now playing this update, and was resupplying, making this exchange topical and funny. First shot now is the valkyrie.

Seems like a lot more immersive detail. I haven't been following this thread so this might not be news but I'm seeing NPC cars at the pier with more than one NPC (I stole one and had a couple of passengers for a sec but they jumped out before I could screenshot). Also things like heatwaves above the vent/ac on the wall outside of the LSC I was just at. I hear coyotes at night outside my rt 68 facility. Don't know if that's new but I never noticed it before (my dog noticed it before I did).

^^ Nice finds! And yeah, I'm wondering if more Rockstar devs are now back from RDR2 beta testing, and are implementing more advanced features and improvements into the map/world of Los Santos (i.e. things that were previously nixed in order to make the game work on old gen consoles)?

 

Certainly seems that way; little improvements/changes keep popping up!
