Sooo anybody figured out yet what‘s up with the flavors and why you can change them during production? And what‘s up with that timer for the flavors? 
 

What‘s the quickest way to lvl role xp from what we know now?

I chose Grizzlies. Kind of fits the vibe of an illegal destillery the best

is there a different price for the shacks depending on it's location?

So I've got a couple of questions.

 

- Do the story missions benefit our business in any way?

- Do the bootlegger missions permanently or temporarily decrease prices of supplies (if temporarily how often do you have to do them)?

- Can you sell moonshine even when it is not in today.s buyer requests?

I've answered almost all of these questions in this thread:

OK so PSA. DO NOT BUY THE TALL TREES SHACK!

 

Any mission you get to go to Thieve's Landing will end poorly. The Del Lobos there make it impossible to do anything:

- Sell missions will invariably fail when the revenue agents decide to shoot, and then every npc in town decides to join in. You won't make it to the marker, trust me.

- Bootleg missions that have the "eliminate remaining enemies" will fail due to the fact that the Del Lobos will keep spawning, so the objective never completes.

From where this "mash" comes? I'm doing the missions, but can't buy mash anymore and the production is stopped for 2 hours already. I'm getting lvl 5 but still have no idea how it works

Do you not have to do supply missions then?

No. The Moonshiner equivalent of supply missions are little PvE missions that decrease the cost of your next mash and give some Moonshiner exp.

This doesn't seem like a profitable role to me.

 

Every batch needs roughly 5 bootleg missions before starting production if you want to make good money (reducing mash costs), and the bar upgrade literally has no profitability to it. Having customers at the bar means nothing in terms of money.

I’ve been on for a couple of hours but it’s just trader part 2 really...

With less depth and progression, I'd say. The speakeasy is cool but the role doesn't deserve or need 20 levels.

The band in the bar is amazing. 
 

You can play every instrument solo or with your posse and band mates, the dancing is hilarious.

 

Also the new drunk interactions with posse members are superb. In tears with laughter here.

So I bought the bar but no one serving..am I missing something? 

You can serve your self and other players. I have the next... thing upgrade that adds more people into the bar and there's still no NPC tending the bar, so unless the last upgrade adds it then ya best get used to serving your self I guess lol.

 

Anyway yea, the speakeasy is by far the best part of the role, the band, dancing, pouring drinks, being able to tend the bar, it's super cool. I only wish they were in better places (ie towns/St Denis) and marked on the map so other players were more likely to walk in and hang out. GTAO has similar issues with the Nightclubs, they're cool but they might as well be put on invite only 24/7 cause randoms aint walking in which kinda sucks.

 

The actual role its self is super basic and is just a trimmed down version of the Trader. The bootlegger missions are probably the best part of the Moonshiner stuff that's outside of the speakeasy cause there's not much to the actual moonshining aspect although the deliveries aren't gigantic that I've seen which is nice. Definitely seems to be a little bit quicker overall than the Trader. My stance on it, from what I've seen so far, is that it should've been 10 -15 levels. Something like this I don't think should be treated as a standalone role (I know it requires lvl 5 Trader), it should be an extension to the Trader stuff. Every single new role being 20 levels is gonna get tiresome and I know they bigged the whole "BE WHAT YOU WANT TO BE!" implying not everyone should max out everything, but when the first "major" content update in a few months (and probably the only content update for another 2-3 months going by the Outlaw Pass v2 end date) adds only one role they've basically just pissed all over everything they've said they are trying to do.

The banjo at the end of every Moonshine mission is one of the best parts of this update.

This was the biggest surprise by a mile, very well done.

The band is available at level 5, it's a separate purchase.

Maybe I’m misremembering, but they appear to have removed the little shack that used to be next to moonstone pond.

I had a 20/20 stock and waited for a decent buyer. Next time I checked, my 20/20 dropped down to 0/20 without me selling any. If this role wasn't lackluster already, it is also bugged. 

I may level it for the stuff you can get, if I really want it enough. Else it will suffer the same fate as the bounty hunter role.

It doesn't look like the people in the bar bring in any money. Like passive earnings.

I don't suppose that's gonna happen at all later in the moonshining career, is it?

The D-Dog from Metal Gear 5 would fit perfectly to you. At least we have the husky already...

another bug for moonshine business

when selling or doing mission the chances of rarely that you get stuck at black screen forever and you have to close the game

 

 

i lost my 200 value cash for selling and then i started sell and i got stuck on black screen forever and i close it and back in and check and i lost my stuff (currently at 14 with friends for selling and give more exp)
