So, I purchased privacy glass for my lounge to make it stand out/find it easier but I don't seem to have any at all when I go into it. Anybody else experiencing this glitch?

You can manually turn it on and of with a little screen next to the door.

I think it's like those mirrors where you can see out but they can't see in? You know like those interrogation rooms. lol

Grabbed the Mount Gordo facility. I haven't had the chance to test out its ease of access during freemode set ups, but my friend and I grinded Act I with his Paleto Bay facility and...fxcking YIKES that drive is long.

How does the Land Act facility's location affect the crashed plane crate mission that happens here? It's right on top of it.

 

You're right, it is! I do a lot of special cargo missions and this one pops up quite regularly.

 

And have you noticed the reinforced road leading across the gap of water? Unless it's always been there?

 

 

 

Well, I got the one at Land Act Dam. It's the most expensive one but I thought it'd be close enough for heists and stuff... Hopefully I didn't buy the pig in the basket.

 

It's my choice as well, as soon as I saw it on the map. Near the city and far away from all the mayhem at FZ, plus an area of the map I really like, surrounded by mountains. Access might be a bit tricky by car, but I fell in love with it immediately. Definitely not the 'pig in the basket'.

I was torn between the damn or windfarm. I figured windfall would be better but at a million cheaper there has to be a catch .....I'm able to easily get to it from the highway by climbing the steep hill along side it so ..... I bought it

Man, I remember what that technology was just starting to enter the commercially-viable realm.

I think I could get a 4" square of electrochromatic glass for about $100 back in the early 1990's. Now you can buy upper-end cars, private aircraft, and even building windows with several different technologies, including some non-electric ones. The original Star Tours at Disneyland had a big panel of it toward the end of the line (queue)

Went with the one called Sandy Shores. It has decent access to the highway and the train runs right in front of it straight into a tunnel. My 2nd choice would have been Lago Zancudo since it's close to my hangar but seeing that it was among the cheaper ones I opted for SS instead.

 

I've found that in general the 2nd or 3rd most expensive of anything in this game turns out to be the best. The cheapest seem to be designed to make the owner want to upgrade eventually.

I bought Zancudo immediately as I noticed it was directly across from my Hangar.

 

I knew it'd be foolish to buy the one near the canyon or the ones up north. Especially after the Deluxo incident... thank god the Deluxos are sealed behind an interior until brought out

Zancudo's right in the middle of the map, near a freeway too.

Debating on the 3 locations.

 

- Zancudo River

 

- Grand Senora Dessert

 

- Land Act

 

..there's really no "best" location. I'm just looking for a convenient spot with less assholes around. The Route 68 location would have been my top pick if it wasn't on top of a hill.

I can't make up my mind, which one do you guys recommend?

 

Lago Zancudo or Wind Farms?

I'm leaning towards Wind Farm because of its proximity to my Bunker (Scrap Yard), the Sandking spawn & the highway access, but my brother says LZ is better because WF's entrance on top of a hill.

 

He makes a good point, but LZ is very close UI Fort Zancudo ... Home of the trouble.

My hangar is at LSIA.

I'll most likely end up going with the Lago Zancudo Facility. My hanger is also at Zancudo, so it's basically across the way from it, which is convenient. The surrounding roads around the facility are nice too and there are a few useful amenities not too far away.

The Grand Senora desert brings a Half-Life feeling to the base. And the location seems good : a bit far from town, but it changes ...

anyone has bought the one at Zancudo RIVER?

 

at first i wanted to buy that at Fort Zancudo,

because i have every savehosue on the westcoast.

And when i play in free roam, its with clean lobby.

ok, most of the time ;-)

 

so i dont have fear of too much player around.

but why its cheaper as the one in the River Location?

tbh a little advantage in the Heists would be nice.

 

btw, why is that hill on Route 86 so bad?

These things need golf carts, running around this thing is painful

I'd take 4 personal transporters located next to the lift. (Could choose between: Segways, Segway miniPros, or... electric wheelchairs)

I'm between lago zancudo for hangar, ocean, and highway access, wind farm as it is relatively close to downtown and near the farmhouse bunker, hawick mc clubhouse, and highway/airfield, and the resorvoir for sheer proximity to the city/office and clubhouse, although I believe the roads suck.

 

Which location is best when it comes to leveraging resupplies/moneymaking?

 

Thanks for the help!

I bought the one near Lake Zancudo, so now I have bunker, hangar and facility within nearly 1km.

I have it, and i will change it when i racked up some money again. Road acces is pretty bad and you have to drive miles for missions. I have friends that have one near the meth in the desert and one has the one at the windpark. I think i will change it to the windfarm. Good road acces and the location is not known to be a warzone.

I went for the one at Route 68, it's right across from my Route 68 bunker and it's a nice and quiet place. Can't remember it ever turning into a warzone. Also there's an aircraft spawn for your hangar vehicles right next to it.

you only have to deal with the pre set up missions in public sessions which are like glorified and not randomized supply missions for the freedom businesses.

 

The rest of the missions and money is missions akin to the first batch of heists where outside players can't mess with you.

 

Zancudo seems best for ease of access and discourages those that don't have zancudo access for flying around.

 

 

Wind farm seems to be 2nd best for ease of access and has the windmills to give some resistance to novice pilots and NPC pilots.

 

The reservoir is less populated and is in a better location role play wise. Just take a vehicle up to it and see if you can handle the assent and if it's worth it to you.

I got the one at land act since it's closest to the city, but after driving up and down that utterly hopeless road i'm definitely going to have a good look at the other locations.

The windfarm seems annoying because, well, it's in the middle of a windfarm, so landing something there will be tricky.
Guess i'll be moving my facility and the bunker to zancudo to have those next to my hangar, and still somewhat accessible from the city.

I got the Zancudo Facility.

Not too far from the city and an excellent access road - it's all downhill from the city meaning drives back are quick for the prep missions.

I havent purchased anything yet but last night I watched a spending spree on YouTube.

 

The guy bought the one at the dam - Land Act. He also purchased the Avenger heli/plane MOC.

 

Flying in and out of the facility with that aircraft it looked like a really great option because its an easy accesssible location you would normally never visit. Gives the DLC a unique and fun role-play vibe.

 

 

Originally I wanted the one next to my hangar at zancudo, I didnt think I would want the Avenger but that YouTube video swayed me. It looks like a must have toy to fully enjoy the new update for all its got, with the intention of filling that facility with the jet pack and other new vehicles.

the one by the lighthouse , the roads approaching it are bad , very easy to roll your ride

I seem to remember vehicle deliveries always end up on the wrong side of the inlet here as well, on the road to Cape Catfish. Also gang attack.
