    Been doing a fair bit more online, already ranking up pretty quickly on my own but now getting to the point where I need more players than just myself to complete missions. Might start doing a few jobs, get some more RP and experience in different areas/aspects of the game. I have heard of some people being able to complete most things on their own, but that's pretty hardcore and dedicated, certainly not something I have the patience for!

    If I do decide to just join a crew, or even stumble upon a group of local (Australian) players who are like me, where would be a great place to start looking? I'm so "backwards" I don't even have a headset, or Discord, etc etc.

    I know you used to be able to transfer over your online progress from Xbox to PC but i'm not sure if it's still possible

    There is an OCAU crew floating around but i'm not sure if anyone in it is still active but you can be apart of multiple crews and switch between which one shows up at will.
    I've been tempted to jump on lately to try out the new Heist, i'll jump on tonight if you wanted to party up (Name is Hookimus everywhere).

    I gave up on the game altogether.
    This is a great game if you got time, but for the casual gamer with limited play time it doesnt work.

    These are my gripes:
    - The time to travel from one place to another is a killer.
    - All the game modes / missions don't make any sense to me ... Like the slashers game ?
    - Heists spend so much time travelling and setting up only to have one guy blow the whole mission in seconds.
    - Can't seem to make enough money quick enough.
    - Load / wait times are too long

    I really wanted to persist with it after watching all the funny youtube clips, but the grind takes too much out of my limited game time.

    One of the things i learnt from Youtube clips, buy a helicopter and get it insured/etc. Need to get across the map? Call for the chopper, drive to its delivery location (heaps of helipads on the map), and fly instead, takes about 1/4 of the time.

    Yeah, it can chew up some time. It's like an MMO in a lot of ways.

    GTA Online got a content update: The Vespucci job. True Mini has been added to the game and few other cars.

    using a mode ussually the FIVEM gta5 mod lets you join some role playing servers with custom mods n stuff. some of them are hardcore like you have to go on the forum and apply to be let into the servers, all the cops and ambo people have to be in discord etc.

    I mainly just go around observing the chaos.

    I've been getting into Fivem, and gee is it addictive when you get a good server.



    They have custom cars, custom jobs, drugs Police, EMS, mechanics, car dealers... A lot of fun to be had.

    The video is a server event, Police have to get a HVT through a number of checkpoints, civs had to stop them.

    Anyone else Fivemingf

    I haven't looked into it but heard it it's quite an effort to do?

    It really isn't too bad. Find a good server, hop on, talk to people and get going. I'm happy to show you round a server if you're keen.

    To get started you DL the FiveM client, and have a working microphone.

    What about R*, can you get banned? I heard a while back they trying to shut down the modding community?

    I watched a dude on youtube a few months back and it looked like fun, so if there are no adverse affects, I would be keen to give it a run.

    Yeah, no adverse affects. Not even linked to your Rock* account.

    Grab discord and Team speak as well. When suits you? I'm over in WA so I'm 3 hours behind. I'm generally on 3 or 4 nights a week.
