THE BEACH BUM PACK
Coming in early November will be the first add-on content update, the Beach Bum Pack which will bring all-new beach themed vehicles and new weaponry that you’ll be able to use in both GTA Online and Story Mode. Plus new customization options for your GTA Online character including new tats, hairstyles and more. We’ll also be adding lots of brand new action-packed Jobs to play with Gang Attacks, Survivals, Last Team Standings, Parachutes, Deathmatches and Races that will have you bloodying up the waters and coastlines of the finest beach resorts across Los Santos and Blaine County.

Nice to see it will come with a bunch of new jobs, hope it hits early November... like Nov 1st Looks like the content creator has been pushed back, now its just 'fall' release... and they were very vague on hiests, doesnt look good for that feature coming anytime soon.

Hi everyone,
Just to clarify for those who were asking about the adjustment made to mission replay payouts, please remember that we are continuing to regularly balance the dynamic in-game economy and whenever we discover that there are unintended loopholes that some players are exploiting to grind cash or RP, you can expect that we will be adjusting or closing them. By the same token, there are also cases where we’re balancing the economy in the opposite direction such as recently reduced penalties for dying. All of this is done to keep things as fair and as fun as possible - please remember that we are looking at not only player data in our ongoing tuning process decision-making but also at your direct input, so if you have any feedback about the in-game economy or any other aspects of the game, please direct it to GTAOnline@rockstargames.com as we are actively looking at all player feedback sent to that address. We thank you for your understanding and patience and please stay tuned this week for more information including timing of the first GTA$ Stimulus Package deposit and the forthcoming new content such as the Beach Bum Pack, Content Creator and Heists.

Gimmie, Gimmie and Gimmie... odd they say nothing regarding the stock market, or is that now just a single player thing.

Well there's no doubt it looks awesome, its looked awesome since the very first vid. Only question is, can they deliver, let's see if the dog fighting module hits its mark in a month. That would be a good sign, might even get me to pledge.

She had a severe reaction to the antibiotic, and began throwing up and having diarrhea.

Just a reaction to medication, definitely did the right thing Blue. Glad to hear Hudson came through all right, especially at that age. That's one tough doggie.

Hence my reluctance to say anything... and I'm not really judging Blue in my comment, as I said only he has all the information. It's just that in my lifetime I've seen too many people put their pets through living hell and hold out until the bitter end simply because they can't let go.

If I've made some social faux pas I apologize, and Blue can delete my post. I will take no umbrage if you do so.

Sorry to hear about Hudson Blue... I wanted to reach through the screen and smack you up the side of the head when I read that post a few days ago, but I held my tongue. I'll put this as delicately as possible, are you doing what you're doing for your benefit or Hudsons?

I was in that position myself a few years ago. My dog had acute renal failure. I did what I could, even making her home cooked meals for such a problem which bought her another six months more then the vet thought I would get... but when she was no longer getting out of bed and had stopped eating for almost a week IE starving to death, I bit the bullet and had her put down. It was one of the saddest things I've ever had to do, but it was time, the dog was only suffering at that point.

Obviously only you can make that determination as you are the one who is there. I just hope that in your decision making the first and foremost and only consideration is what is best for the dog.

we need to play a crew golf game, btw.

We did one last night, kind of a PITA to setup as when you walk into the zone it just puts you in with a random group of PPL. Took a few tries to get an empty lobby so we could invite crew members.

What if we join it from a crew-only world? I wonder if that would make a difference.


I dont believe its possible to start a 'crew only' server, it will always top up with randoms. We are lucky if all of us get put into the same server after a mission ends.

So where should I get started in online? I'm lagging behind the rest of the crew, been doing the SP and been busy with the daughter/etc. I'm pretty low, like rank 5 or 6. Should I just grind races to catch up a bit? Last time I did a job with PHJF and etc I felt like I was just dragging everyone else down since I'm just wearing a shirt and using a pistol LOL.

We keep inviting you when we see you on, dont be shy, come play with us, we dont bite, hard. If you would like to level up some by yourself, skydiving. You can also do most of the low level missions solo. You can also start your session by doing a survival, this will give you access to weapons you cannot currently buy... and you can join us and just ask, we will gladly join you in a survival after which you will be loaded for bear... and bears in tanks!

EDIT Shooting skill - Survivor. Driving Skill - drive wrong way on highway, and um you know, dont crash. Stamina - run forrest run.

Ya last night was fun, nice to mix it up a little and do other things. The helicopter races were fun and ya forgot to mention the Lazer race! A new (I think) race Rockstar added where you have to race Lazers around LS, with missiles and guns! That was a blast.

Well Evilgrouse and I were on playing for a couple hours. Weve been able to do races, skydiving and survivor missions and it seems to be saving now. Still unable to do phone missions though.

But is it saving your progress? That's the main thing I'm seeing on the Support forums, is that people log off, get kicked, disconnected from PSN, whatever...and come back and they've lost money and levels.

I'll probably log in in a few and play anyways. Just don't like the idea of losing progress and cash, when it's been slow going since they nerfed the payouts. I had done about 5 Survivals this morning when I left the last one and got the Cloud error message about saving. I wasn't able to get back into another Survival, so I just waited in a job menu for awhile, backing out and repeating until it did finally save 20min later.

It was like that earlier, but at least saving seems to be working ATM... we didn't have any issues over the last few hours. We both stopped to eat, be back on in an hour or so.

Speaking of cleaning up on a mission. Golf course race, reduce to one lap, 1:30 to complete, 4.8k, 1400RP... actually not positive on the RP but definatly one way to clean up if youre looking for quick RP or cash.

I've often thought that racing between the four of us would be a MUCH faster way to gain RP and cash than grinding the same mission.

With 4 people the victor gets 6K. Do one lap around the prison complex, which is a ~ 35 seconds race, let each guy win in a row, and you're pulling in a shit ton of money and RP.

Yup, same with skydiving, except with skydiving everyone gets the same cash and RP (assuming you hit all the targets) regardless of who wins. Unfortunately seems we cant do shit today as the Rockstar servers are all fucked up. I cant even join a server with fellow crew members as it doesnt register the fact Im in a crew ATM, and forget about doing any phone missions.

My side was working fine it was a PSN problem. Did finally get on last night was flaky for a bit, kept getting kicked, but it settled down and I got a good few hours in... got nothing on my to do list today so it looks like a GTA saturday for me.

EDIT Funny thing about the PSN problem yesterday. Couldnt log on period, but as soon as I started GTA it found and downloaded the patch, but I still could not log onto PSN.

Money earned for replaying missions is cut by 50%, LSC resell glitche has been fixed, and you can no longer use the roof during the Boneyard survival mission.

Seems Rockstars onto everyone farming 'base invaders' I was kinda getting bored redoing the same missions over and over and would like to mix it up with skydiving, racing, team missions ect ect anyway. Who uses the roof on Boneyard, the blue bus is the best spot IMO.

I'm either 19 or 20, forgot which, but I've only done a few of the low level missions. I still have to go see Lester for the first time, etc.

Lesters missions are pretty high end, the low end stuff is Simone, Gerald and Lamar... oh and be aware that Simones 'ATV Steal' should be done with 4 players as you need to get all 4 ATVs. Made the mistake of doing it solo and ended up spending over an hour grabbing ATVs from all over the map.... though I guess in hindsight if I would have killed all 4 riders right from the start it would have made it easier.

EDIT oh and finally remembered to call MerryWeather for some chopper support. Heh three of us called them in at one point on a survivor mission, was sweet having three choppers circling and they were all ours ... think that might be a plan for 'death from above' instead of charging the mansion just get all four people to call in choppers, sit back and watch the carnage.

That will be a sad day for us all for sure when the time comes. It really is like losing a member of the family. Every time I go through losing a pet I say I am never having another one but always break down and do it again.

It's heartbreaking to lose a pet, but the joy you get out of having one is so much more than worth it. It's a month of grief for the 8-10 years of joy, love and happiness they give you.

Also, while I like the idea of having to bank your money, it was really, REALLY getting boring.

I kinda thought the whole depositing and widthdrawing money via the phone was stupid, makes the ATMs utterly pointless. For cash transactions they should have forced you to use the ATM. I think it would be more fun to have to find an ATM before somebody robs you instead of end mission whip out phone.

Fixes additional issues causing black screens, long load times, and players getting stuck in the sky cam

Finally. I was getting so fucking aggravated with that the past week or so. Every mission I finish, I'm getting kicked out of sessions, get stuck in the sky cam, get bounced between sessions.

Maybe it'll be slightly smoother now.


  • Players now only lose a maximum of 500 GTA$ upon death in Freemode


  • WTF!? That was the whole point! Getting someone's fat cash if they didn't put it in the bank! ARGH!

    Um isnt that the default 'hospital bill' loss and not you dropping excess cash for people to pick up, I think that parts still in there if you dont bank your money.

    ... and on the bug fix ... Plus the crew invite problem is fixed too. yay.
