GTA Online 1.12 title update!

Yes it’s finally live! No longer will you see griefing trolls in creator mode while in a freeroam session. No more God-mode assholes who run around invisible and invulnerable while they drop objects all over the place boxing in players. Loading transition times seem smoother and faster now. Even when spectating other players it no longer takes forever to switch from one player to another player who is across the map. It’s still not instant, but seems to take less than 10 seconds.

One weird bug I found just last night where you try to buzz into your friend’s garage and you get stuck. You cant move, cant move your camera view, you have no radar map, no UI, cant use your phone, and your character is invincible to any damage. At most you can get hit by vehicles and ragdoll all over the place but you still can’t die. It was fun seeing my friend playing virtual kick-the-can down the street with my character but was an annoying bug. The only thing i could do is bring up the Start menu and join another session to get out of it.

All the car exploits have been fixed from copying personal vehicles to bringing in vehicles from story mode. I’ve also read in the past that are de-ranking players who have extremely high ranks who got it from the DNS redirect exploits. I have been seeing a lot of rank 1 players running around in freemode, whom are well dressed, most of them with the high end weapons you can’t get until rank 70. Plus normally any new characters coming into the game will be rank 3 after they do all the tutorial stuff before they enter a public freeroam session. That said I’m still seeing a lot of high ranked players over 500, but everyone knows past 120 is meaningless for the time being.

All the details of what was changed and fixed is listed here.

There are still some remaining gameplay issues that still annoy me. The NPCs still call you and harass you for not doing a job. Simon still sends you a list of cars he wants you to jack and you’ll still get 2-star wanted level when you carjack a Siemon vehicle when you have no intention to take it in for him. This NPC harassment should go away once you’re actually done these jobs a few times (or several), or at least it stops once you’re past a high rank like past 75. The game DOES keep track of what jobs you’ve done already.

On the positive note they did give Lester a new ability you can request for. For $5000 you can have the police ignore your criminal activity and you won’t get a wanted level. I haven’t tried this yet, so i don’t know how long it lasts (my guess is 1 minute) and what limitations there are. For example if i shoot a cop with this function enabled, will i still get a 3-star wanted level? Should be fun to test out. I did notice the 1st time I got on after the TU that players were VERY VERY aggressive towards me; likely due to this feature being turned on. I also assume that there are a lot more players online today now that this update is out, and all the griefing and god-power exploits are removed.

Also the jobs list has been fixed, I can now bring up “Rooftop Rumble” whenever I want too on my higher rank character. I still wanna know when/if/how we can open the 3rd character slot so I can start with a new character?
