Haha, looks like you are! I'll get you added to the member list.
When I‘m online and manage to get a peaceful lobby I‘m always up to helping others (or receive help)
For those looking for peaceful lobbies there's an easy way to guarantee getting one. Before you start the game go to network settings, change your MTU to 800. The game will fail to match you with all the crazy randys because their MTU is the stock 1500. You might get the odd person coming in but they have lowered their MTU for the exact same reason and are highly unlikely to bother you. Remember to set your MTU back up for other games again as you'll run into the same problem elsewhere.
Will try this in the afternoon.
If you have very good internet, you might set it to MTU 700 or even 650. I can't always connect to the server first, but it usually works the second time and the lobby will be solo.
There is almost always* an 800 lobby held by a GTPL member going on.
*From ~6pm-8am EDT weekdays and nearly round the clock weekends is a good bet.
The MTU trick works like a charm.
Is this MTU setting for ps4? It sounds like a great idea but I can't find it in my settings!
Go to Settings -> Network and set again the wifi or cable for the PS4. Go for advanced settings and close to the end it will ask you if you want to automatically set the MTU or if you want to set it manually. Choose "manual" and set it to 800.
Settings>Network>Setup Internet Connection
Select Custom, accept the default settings for everything but the MTU option, which you manually change to 800(or less). To revert when you want to play near others you simply go back into Setup Internet Connection and select Easy instead and let it auto-setup.
Thanks @Marcus Garvey and @Michelin
Are you talking about your own one? I always access that one with the regular 1500 mtu
Yes, my own room. I am almost always on 800. That is why sometimes folks will enter the room, see me drop offline and then return a minute later. That is me resetting.
I was using MTU 800 earlier today and somehow had 7 people on the room... Went to the settings and chose 700, no one has entered the room today.
When you are on 800, or any reduced MTU others can still enter the room. What MTU does is change the matchmaking parameters, so that you generally are prevented from entering populated rooms. Others can still join you, though. I have been in full rooms whilst on 800. You can probably still go online with MTU as low as 600, although it may take a bit to load and you may timeout a few times first. Still, others can join there too.
To summarise, reducing MTU does not prevent others from entering your room. It can prevent you from entering others' rooms, which is how it works to get you your own room, of course.
Anyone want to play sometime this week? I need to sell a bunker before it gets raided and maybe a few other things
Hello crew! I had a racing series planned and then life got busy and then suddenly the Futo became a dealership car. What? Crap. My series plan has changed focus away from the Futo now anyway but, I still have about 35 uninsured Futos in slightly varying states of upgrade that I want to get rid of. I picked all of them up off the street painstakingly waiting for the game's spawn algorithm to give me Futos. So take a look at the pictures, if it's a Futo, you can have it, just send me a message or join a crew lobby sometime this weekend and I should be online to give these things away.
You get a Futo, You get a Futo, EVERBODY GETS A FUTO!
I haven’t played the game in a long time, but I thought you weren’t able to give cars to other players once they’ve been stored in a garage.
This is correct. Storing a car in your garage automatically puts a tracker on it that prevents other players from storing it.
Well crap, guess I have to find another way to get rid of them all.
I know my old social club from the PS3 era is in the crew, but I just bought the game on pc, different social club account.
