Swap a couple technicians around, if that don't fix it shut down and restart your coke lab.

Fly to the bank, kill everybody, get the gold, deliver it. Can be done in less than 2 minutes.

2 minutes??

 

It takes 30 seconds to get in the helicopter from the terrorbyte. Would be interested in an actual time for this for each location. That's the only way to accurately find the best $ per min for these. Targeted Data can be done in under 4 minutes, 3:30 is probably achievable (I did 3:45 starting too far away and missed the target twice).

I've only done one Targeted Data and it was the stationary target, with goons. It's not as simple as it's always the stationary one is it?

 

Or does it spawn in last like the Cargo ones?

That sounds like Data Sweep you're describing.

 

Targeted Data, hack life invader's laptops, kill target.

 

Data Sweep, drive/fly near vehicle and scan, deliver correct vehicle. The vehicle changes, I've had a stationary one and moving one. FYI cargo doesn't always spawn in the last van, it just often seems that way.

Something weird happened to me yesterday, my South American was full 3 hours early. I sold everything just after 5:30 in the morning and then went AFK in a contact mission. When I returned to the game just before 10:30 at night my SA was full. IIRC Pharma had 18, and Cash had 34. How can SA fill in under 17 hours?

 

The only thing I can think of was that my stock wasn't completely full when I sold it in the morning. There must've been some unfinished stock that was in the process of being produced in the background that continued being produced after the sale. This is good news as it indicates production isn't reset completely to 0 when you sell. This could explain why sometimes it seems that one produces slightly faster than it should.

 

The odd part is that I had a full 10 units of SA. 17 hours should only create 8 and a half. The one in production when I did the morning sale should only up the total inventory to 9, if there was less than an hour to finish it. I dont see how I should have a full 10. Somehow I got an extra SA unit.

 

Has the 2 hours for each SA unit been double checked to be accurate? Are there any other thoughts on how I could've gotten an extra one?

I have checked the script for Robbery in Progress and there are only 3 locations. I assumed there are more since the security cams show more than 3 locations.

Pacific Standard Bank

The one near Maze Bank West office or Morningwood

The one in Blaine County

I'm pretty sure there's a small time component, @Fun 2 posted it in one of the other threads I think. 

Yes, that's why I say "minimum" payout, you can earn more if you expend more minutes at completing them. The thing is that minimum is pretty high this time.😄

The first one of these I did I got the big bank in the city where you do the heist (Pacific Standard). Not had it again. The 6-8 I have completed since have been a combination of the ones you mentioned. 4 different locations in total. 

 

ETA: I misread your post as 'The ones near Maze Bank West office or Morningwood'. I thought there were 2 smaller banks in the city but can only recall that one. So 3 locations. Sorry.

One question about the Watching TV in a mission AFK method. Do I have to be in an apartment or can I watch TV from my office?

Office works too but not the nightclub (can't enter it). Also, the TV doesn't have to be on (press the button once to sit on the sofa, and then once again to switch to TV mode, and that's it).

Not sure what I'm doing wrong.

 

I'll go into Titan of a Job from my office, sit at the couch to watch tv, select "Watch tv" but dont turn it on, then rubberband my controller and plug it in. Checked back after 2-3 hours and I've gotten kicked 2 out of 4 times today.

Blow Up I works well. Sit, turn on TV, watch. No need to rubberband. 

 

TV might stay with black screen, but sound is on so it's working anyway, and that's enough.

Which platform? On the PC that's all I have to do, and I never get kicked out. On the consoles I read other people mention you have to go into the settings somewhere and disable power off when idle. I found this for the Xbox: 

1) Make sure you have disabled xbox idle notifications:

System Settings > Preferences > Idle Options.
UN-Check the box under “When your console goes idle…”

2) Make sure you have disabled automatic turn-off:

System Settings > Power & Startup > Power mode & startup
Turn off after > Don’t turn off automatically

It's probably something similar for the PS4.

Try the TV at the back of a 10-car garage, that's where you'll find me.

 

And make sure you plug your controller in, no wireless.

When is the best time to sell? Full warehouse or anytime?

  • Assign the 5 technicians to each of the 7 categories except Weed (Organic Produce) and Docs (Printing & Copying).
  • Wait 20 hours for the stock to fill up to capacity on either Coke (S Am Imports), Meth (Pharmaceutical Research) or Cash (~ Creation).
  • As soon as any of the categories is filled up to capacity, sell everything.

Special offers are fine if you don't mind the occasional extra sale mission but don't change your strategy because of them, it's not worth it.

^ I take the 10% special sales (20 if there) and generally can do two or even three from one AFK resupply. In lobbies with 10-20 players for another bump. Then I clear out the rest of the stock when I'm done and about to start AFK again.

On xbox I have to unplug my wired controller after I go to my apartment and watch TV. The alert screen will come up telling you you have to plug in a controller but the game will still be playing in the background and you won't get kicked. That's the only way it works for me

When you're watching TV, there are two camera views (toggled with trackpad button). You need the one that zooms in on the TV (which doesn't even need to be turned on). Then just make sure your controller is charging. 

 

You dont need to rubber band your controller, no controller inputs are required. Maybe just check your PS4 power save settings as well, although I don't think it's that.

I’ve been doing exactly those steps, i’ll try without rubberbanding but yeah i dont think it’s a power saving issue because the game is still running
