while I am no longer unable to shred with the GRM crew, the jump to next gen on PC has sucked me back into the game on a daily basis. I am currently working my way through heists to rake in some cash.

What do you guys recommend for continued raking in of said cash? Become a CEO? What are some MUST BUY items I should have on my radar (aside from lowriders. a moonbeam custom will suffice for now) Thinking more of things that will make survival easier...

Obviously I want lots of cars and that requires lots of money.

To make more money, roll whatever has 2x cash/rp. There is almost always one. Either that or roll CEO when there are less people in the game.

On another note, a few weeks ago, I decided to see what people did on Twitch with GTA. I found there were role players. I'm thinking, OK, here are some geeks.... holy E36 M3 this is fanberkeleyingtastic!

Ever get a chance, check out the GTA RP guys on Twitch. Funny watch. I kind of want to get into it, but don't have the PC to do so.

I might have logged on. I might habe bought a bunker. I might habe done all of it so I could have a merica themed mobile operations center.

I played on PS3 until recently the dog drug it off the table and broke it, so I caved and bought a PS4. Things have gone full retard. I've done the CEO thing and have decided you pretty much have to go find a Buzzard unless you want to work your ass off when you buy stock. Body slamming an NPC Frogger with a Cargobob was funny the first time I tried it and it worked though. Current favorite money making gig is the motorcycle club contracts. Looking at buying some businesses for my club if I can stop buying other stupid E36 M3.

I can say a sale on a fully stocked small warehouse will get you $240k. A sale on an un upgraded full bunker will get you 750k. It took me and a friend on a glitched open session with just the 2 of us in it close to a full 8 hour day to fill my small warehouse. The MC contracts seem to pay out 15-35k each if you have 2 people in them, they also seem to pay more if you have more people in your club. I also still doing the old contact missions by myself.

I will say it doesn't seem like it because of my terrible spending habits when I'm thrown large amounts of fake money in a fake world, I'm pretty sure it's way easier to make money now than it was when I was playing on PS3.

Last thing, I'm fairly upset that I missed the cutoff on upgrading my PS3 character to PS4, because my PS3 character had iirc 42 million dollars from where some hacker dumped money on me in a public session once.

Yeah, I was dirt broke when I logged in. Then I remembered I've got several million dollars worth of supercars inventory from when I was rich and bored. I'm curious how a lot of these new things will work.

One week, some screwing around, etc, amd the reports are in. The new content is solid. You don't have cool down timers on packages anymore, so you can grab supplies as quick as you need for your businesses andyour gunrunning. Tje missions are pretty formulaic, so don't expect anything too exotic. My favorite part is actually other players. I haven't been hassled once while on a run. Lobby could be 30 deep and no one is messing with me. Ive survived two bounties in the last 3 days.

I've made it a point to message other CEOs to ensure a truce. Usually have no problems when "working".

That seems to be an unspoken rule. I appreciate it, to be sure. I stay out of firefights and they don't hassle me.

Still haven't stopped buying stupid stuff. Hit up the overtime rumble double money/rp thing a bit. Bought a $700k Ferrari clone instead of a forgery shop. Oops.

Yeah, I threw all my dough into renovations and upgrades for my businesses so they crank out more stuffs. The overtime rumble is nice for the cash.

I got the cheapest forgery office because it was both cheap and close enough to my clubhouse in grapeseed. I'm fairly amused pulling up to this office in my 80s Ferrari, completely ignoring that a biker gang is supposed to be operating it.

Fyi I found that theres crews on reddit you can join to straight up grind ceo work in safe lobbys, get people to help you with deliveries, etc.

If youre playing solo and no one berkeleys with you you can rake in about 400k an hour stealing and selling cars

Seems to be that most are like that. Haven't run into hostile in a while. My chopper gets stolen once in a while, because apparently buzzards and savages still aren't that common.
