So kick back on your Office couch, pour yourself an Executive-style liquid lunch, and enjoy these #CEO winner, runner-up and honorable mention entries.
 

WINNER

SELLIN' DOPE by Bill_BENEDICT
The lifestyle of a successful Los Santos CEO is a fast paced cocktail of glamour and danger - details Bill_BENEDICT delivers with gusto in his prize-winning vid featuring luxurious Yachts and choppers, fast cars, beautiful women, tense glimpses of Buy missions with drop point flares burning, and stacks endlessly accumulating in the CEO's Office. However, it is not just the content of this video that made it the judges' favorite, but the fantastic visual style, employing impeccable composition, innovative camera tricks and lighting effects to make exceptional use of the Rockstar Editor tool. Bill also exhibits a keen understanding of how to edit to a soundtrack, matching the style and pacing of his clip to the titular song.

RUNNERS-UP

The two talented runners-up, ChronicBuzz187 and -tdr81, will each receive a $100 Rockstar Warehouse gift card and deluxe prize pack of official GTAV gear and collectibles.


WHAT GOES AROUND COMES AROUND by ChronicBuzz187
A radical departure in style from Bill_BENEDICT's entry, ChronicBuzz187 is more Terrence Malick than Tarantino. Atmospheric lingering vignetted shots (including a masterful sequence depicting a Brickade Sell mission), a nuanced narrative about a CEO with a target on his back, and a hypnotizing soundtrack courtesy of The Hics. Be sure to watch through to the end for a brooding finale that ruminates on the true cost of a life of crime.


HY LIFE by -tdr81
An arresting opening POV shot makes for a clever framing device in -tdr81's whirlwind story of the trials and tribulations of a Southern San Andreas criminal Organization mastermind. While -tdr81’s CEO is out living the good life, his henchmen meet a myriad of missteps in their attempts to move high-priced Contraband. In the end however, the CEO takes extreme measures to make sure the job gets done.

HONORABLE MENTIONS

Don’t miss a few fantastic honorable mentions that are definitely worth a watch.

BE A CEO by --EVOLUT7ON--
Watch as --EVOLUT7ON--’s villainess makes her dreams of being the ultimate consigliere a reality, stylishly stealing and hacking her way to fortune and just as fiercely fighting her way to freedom.

GTA - THE CEO by ThePhantomMoose
In order to pull off the successful acquisition and distribution of Contraband, painstaking planning is necessary. ThePhantomMoose takes us for a walk in the shoes of a CEO who knows how to run his empire, and isn’t afraid to get his hands dirty in the process.

#CEO CASH KINGS LS IN FINANCE AND FELONY by DmC213
Cash Kings LS Leader DmC213 rounds up his Executive staff for the ultimate takeover of the Los Santos underworld. With all the mischief and mayhem the Crew cause on the city streets, it can be hard to stay under the radar of the LSPD - leading to a climactic standoff.

Tips for Creating Stunning Cunning Stunt Races with the Creator (Part Two: Props, Tracks, Courses & Terrain)

Posted 4 days, 2 hours ago | Author: R* Q | Filed Under: Games

If you haven’t yet, make sure to check out Part One of this Stunt Race Creator tips series with a lot of guidance straight from the Rockstar dev team on planning and designing your stuntastic masterpiece. And read on for Part Two, where we delve into the finer points of getting the most out of your Props, tracks, courses and the Los Santos and Blaine County terrain.

PROPS PRO-TIPS:


Strategically placed Boosts can be helpful at moving the player through difficult terrain, such as shallow water.

There’s no shortage of new Stunt Props to play with in the Stunt Race Creator and with hundreds of options to choose from, you can supply GTA Online racing enthusiasts with an infinite supply of inspired tracks. Here’s some fine points on just a few of the varied Prop options awaiting you:

  • Templates (found in the Props categories) are useful for building set pieces of combined Props that you can duplicate and reuse in your Race. This is useful if you want to repeat a particularly awesome section of your course.
  • When you have a Prop selected, you can still use Fast Zoom to adjust the height of the Prop in quicker fashion. Fast Zoom is the Triangle (PS4), Y (Xbox One) button or L Ctrl and mouse wheel zooming (PC).
  • Stunt Props don’t just have to be used for their most obvious and originally designed purpose. Experiment by rotating them in different ways and try them out for decorations, barriers, even bigger set pieces – whatever you can dream up!
  • Where possible, use larger Props instead of several smaller ones to save on Prop count. For example, the Prop piece ‘Tube Extra Long’ is the longest track available so use it for long straight sections.
  • Smaller Props such as some of the Building Blocks are helpful in making the move between track pieces much easier.
  • Stunt Tubes provide a great way to transition from one section of the course to the next as they’re very malleable. They can be made to spiral upwards, downwards, over terrain and buildings, and even submerge into the ground.
  • Line up your Stunt Tubes carefully and with precision. Uneven placement means you could come across unwanted elevation change or speed-stopping bumps - unless you're into that sort of thing.
  • Circular checkpoints are the perfect size for Stunt Tubes.
  • Building Blocks are handy for filling in unwanted gaps on your course. When put together and rotated/angled, some also make for excellent ramps.
  • Ramps aren't just for jumping – they can provide smooth transitions when driving onto steep, vertical track pieces.
  • Stunt Specials, such as Boost and Slow Down can change the dynamic of a Race dramatically.
  • Boosts can be helpful at moving players through difficult terrain, such as shallow water or steep inclines. Multiple boosts can also drastically change how much velocity a player can get to achieve that perfect jump.
  • Slow Down, on the other hand, set at the top of a steep downward slope can potentially stop racers from driving clean over the top.


TRACKS AND COURSES:


If you really want to stand out and impress with your Stunt Races – the wilder, bolder and bigger the better.

While you’re mapping out your madcap, challenging tracks, it’s worth bearing these strategies in mind:

  • Testing tracks as you go along will help resolve any problems that pop up early on. To quickly test your Race, press the Touch Pad (PS4), View Button (Xbox One) or Tab key (PC) and you’ll be transported onto the track in whichever vehicle you’ve chosen as the default.
  • Roughly laying out the Prop pieces before fine tuning their positioning will help you determine how many Props the track will require.
  • When attempting more than one track type in your Race, use Blends. There are a couple of Tube Blend Props that are of great use, especially when starting off a section of track made from the Tube Props.
  • Use the Track Link Prop in Stunt Tracks when moving between Stunt Track and Stunt Raised Track pieces in order to keep a tidy course.
  • With one of the new features of the Stunt Creator being Secondary Checkpoints, you can now create a second route for players to take in Races. It may be easier to visualize where you want the track to split off when you have a Primary set of checkpoints down from start to finish.
  • Be sure to set the new Stunt Grid layout option on the initial Checkpoint when using a Start Grid track piece.
  • Make sure Checkpoints are placed in a way that will allow players to complete a set piece on a respawn. You can try this yourself in Test mode by manually respawning at a Checkpoint before your set piece.
  • Don’t like your Checkpoint placements? The Delete All option now takes Secondary Checkpoints into account, just in case you want to redesign your Checkpoint layouts again.
  • Remember when putting down Checkpoints that there’s a limit of 68.
  • Building a Race with the intent to perform flips and tricks? Turn on the Award Stunt RP Bonus in Race Details to reward players for landing stunts during your Race. However, consider where and how players will land after big jumps.
  • To give your Races a bit of extra flair during set pieces, place down fireworks, flares, alarms and sounds that can be triggered by players. You have control not only over who can trigger them and when – first place or everybody and every lap or just the last lap – but also how often. The distance at which they're triggered can also be changed.


MAKING THE MOST OF SOUTHERN SAN ANDREAS:


Existing roads provide a great way to link your track when making lap races, as well as reducing your Prop count.

Sometimes, the most surprising Stunts elements will be right before your eyes. When planning and preparing your ideal Race course, let the surrounding environment and landscape of Southern San Andreas lend a hand:

  • Make use of present landmarks and buildings. These can be massively useful in joining your track pieces together, as well as making it feel more memorable and unique.
  • Finding places to combine with your Race Props around the already available map, such as existing roads and bridges, will not only aid you in creating longer Races but also help reduce Prop count.
  • Use the straight lines of road structures to help you measure your straight tracks.
  • For better or for worse, elements such as water can provide a great hazard - take notice! Remember that you can submerge Props, but think of the shifting tides and the effect it might have on the pace and speed of your racers.


All the above just scratches the surface on the vast possibilities available with the Stunt Race Creator. There’s plenty more to discover for those champing at the bit to get started.

We’re anticipating some spectacular player-made Races to come from you imaginative Creator folk and look forward to seeing and playing those that are most inventive and brilliant and sharing them here on the Newswire.

If any keen creators out there have some Stunt Race track making tips of their own to share, definitely share them in comments here for others – or share your personal Stunt Race creations so that other Social Club members can help playtest them with you.

Tips for Creating Stunning Cunning Stunt Races with the Creator (Part One)

Posted 1 week, 3 days ago | Author: R*N | Filed Under: Games


With the Stunt Race Creator, the sky - and your imagination - is the limit.

This week's just-released Stunt Race Creator has unleashed hundreds of unique Stunt Props and new features for the mad scientists of the amazing Job Creator community to hit the lab with.

Ahead of diving in to begin constructing your Stunt Race masterworks, consult the official Stunt Race Creator Guide, which provides a proper tutorial of the new Creator tools, to get you started on creating and sharing your own Stunt Races. And for those either experimenting with the Creator tool for the first time, or wanting a primer on the overall GTA Online Creator suite, we encourage you to peruse all of the official tutorials available at the Rockstar Games Social Club website - including the original Race Creator Guide.

In this special two-part edition of Rockstar Game Tips here at the Newswire, we present sage advice from our dev team that will help you make the most out of all the new features of the Stunt Race Creator. If you're especially aiming to get your original Stunt Race Job featured at the Newswire in the future, or to make it a fierce contender in the upcoming Verified Creator Stunt Races contest, the pointers below may prove to be especially helpful.

GETTING STARTED


Stunt Props don’t just have to be used for their original purpose; experiment by rotating them in different ways, to see if they can be used to create something wholly unique and unexpected for your track.

As inspiration strikes and you flex your fingers to create the Stunt Race track of your wildest dreams, here are a few important starting points to consider.

With hundreds of Stunt Props to choose from, it’s worth going through the list and familiarizing yourself with them before you start designing a Race; by planning your track prior to laying down the pieces, you'll save yourself the headache of having to resolve problems later on.

Keep in mind that while you can use up to 150 Props in a single Race, there are also 20 Dynamic Props such as the Giant Bowling Pins and Soccer Balls. If your Model Memory tops out before you reach your Prop limit, you will no longer be able to place any additional ones; in other words, use them wisely!

Once you’ve given the Props a thorough inspection, make sure to choose the appropriate car or bike for your course; you don't want to wait to discover during play-testing that the vehicle class you selected is entirely inappropriate for the track you laid out.

This goes the same for choosing a color scheme for your Stunt Race Props; it’s best to decide this early on, rather than having to change the color of individual Props down the line. You can look through the color options of any of the new Stunt Props at any point when creating your Race.

Last, but by no means least, remember that Rockstar-Created Stunt Races are locked to Standard. However, by creating a Stunt Race in the Creator, you can choose to make it Standard, GTA, Rally or Non-Contact. Additionally, if you pop a Stunt Prop into a regular Land Race, it will automatically convert to a Stunt Race.


NEW TO THE STUNT RACE CREATOR:


Tube tracks provide a great way to transition from one section of the course to the next, since they can be quite malleable. They can be made into a spiral upwards or downwards, or to go over terrain and buildings.

Alongside the hundreds of new Props come some very nifty tools to literally take your Races to new levels – the Prop Snapping, Stacking and Override options. Here’s some pro-tips to master using them:

Prop Snapping:

  • Prop Snapping is a quick and easy way to place one track piece next to another, thereby speedily building up your Race. Look to see that you have this option turned on, and when you’re snapping away, use the shoulder buttons to adjust the angle of your next piece of track.
  • For more control over when Stunt Props snap together, tweak the options to Triggered Snapping. This allows you to click Props together at the press of the Square (PS4), X (Xbox One) or Space Bar (PC).
  • Prop categories with snapping abilities can snap to other Prop categories as well; this means that snapping together Stunt Tracks, Stunt Raised Tracks, Stunt Tubes and Stunt Building Blocks will be a breeze.
  • Chain Snapping repeats the last Prop you used, and snaps it into place, easily creating multiple builds of the same Prop. It’s worth remembering that when turning Prop Snapping on, Chain Snapping will also be on by default; switch this off in the Advanced Options of Props to snap without chaining Props together.

Prop Stacking:

  • Want flexibility with Prop placement? Always check that you have Prop Stacking turned on!
  • HOWEVER, when attempting to edit a Prop, it’s best to turn Prop Stacking off, otherwise when you press the X (PS4), A (Xbox One) or Enter (PC) button to edit, another Prop will be placed on top of what you’re trying to edit – rather than the one you’ve highlighted.
  • Observing the name of the Prop in the Tool Tip to make sure you have the correct one selected will also help; with Prop Stacking turning on, you don't want to lose track of what you’ve highlighted.

Override Rotation and Override Position:

  • If you’re having trouble placing Props, Override Rotation and Override Position are your go-to choices. Enter the Position and Rotation Override options to maneuver the Prop until it’s perfectly placed, by changing the X, Y and Z axes.
  • HOWEVER, remember that once the Prop is placed, you can no longer change the Position and Rotation without editing it.
  • Make Override Position your best friend – it will help when making those final flourishes and tweaks to your Race.
  • Use the Triangle (PS4), Y (Xbox One) or L Ctrl (PC) button for Fast Zoom, speeding up your movement when you’re adjusting Props.
  • For perfectionists with a discerning eye, when using the Override Position menu on Props, change the Prop’s alignment to ‘Local’; this will allow you to fine-tune the Prop, moving it based on its orientation rather than where it is in the world.

Look for Part 2 of this special Stunt Race Creator tips series, coming to the Newswire very soon, with a focus on Props, tracks, courses and terrain.

Cunning Stunts Come Alive: Incredible Saves, Vehicle Showcases & More From the GTA Online Community

Posted 2 weeks, 2 days ago | Author: R*E | Filed Under: Social Club, Games

The GTA Online Community has risen to the occasion of capturing great footage and Snapmatics of all things Cunning Stunts. From folks like XpertThief maneuvering all the crazy loops and turns of Rockstar-created Stunt Races to GTASeriesVideos showcasing the vehicles, below are some of the most entertaining clips, GIFs and Snapmatics we came across.

Fresh off the official Rockstar Cunning Stunts live stream they did with us a couple of weeks back, the gang from Achievement Hunter continue the thrills and hilarity in a stream of their own. AH go through Racing Alley, Turbine, Downtown Loop and Threading the Needle, all part of what appears to be their new favorite GTA Online update.

From GTASeriesVideos, here's a showcase of the three newest Cunning Stunts vehicles, with a full walkthrough of all customization options AND a showcase of the interior view and performance on the streets of Los Santos. If you're in the market for something with power and considering the Bravado Sprunk Buffalo, MTL Dune or Vapid Contender, check this video out. You can also peruse some other recent rides our old friends tested out here.

About halfway through Point to Point Stunt Race Zebra and sitting in fourth place, Alton Mclawhorn (aka 911 NYC Crew Leader nikobellic250000) clipped a fellow racer mid-jump, a circumstance that easily could have taken him out of contention. Instead - and to his surprise - Alton stuck the landing and moved into first place. Watch here for the full Race and Alton's ultimate victory.

Racing maestro Broughy1322 also found himself in a bit of an airy situation. After completely overshooting a jump, Broughy hung tight through several revolutions and was able to straighten out post-landing and regain composure. That was indeed one hell of a save.

Seasoned GTA photographer Cassy adds to her ever-growing collection of jaw-dropping snaps, setting up her fresh-from-the-factory Vapid Contender in a proud pose for this abstract shot.

XpertThief aka KevinLaSean was quick off the mark in testing out the latest bunch of Stunts Races and new vehicles in a recent live stream. Alongside RealRosesAreRed and other friends, Kevin plays through Forest, High Flier and others. Check out a recording of the full broadcast above.

Staying calm under pressure, SAEVARM3 harnesses the power of their inner wallrider to stage a remarkably elegant recovery behind the wheel of an Annis RE-7B in the Super Stunt Race East Coast.

Tiff92Productions' flamboyant "helicarpter" jump on new Stunt Race Zebra looks to be setting them up for a rough landing. Amazingly, Tiff escapes unscathed and lives to stunt another day.

Geared up and ready to rally, czechgamehunter takes the MTL Dune for a spin on the dusty roads of Blaine County.

MODESTMOUSE89 risks it all with a perfectly timed shortcut -- complete with a barrel roll -- to blitz past two other hopeful racers in East Coast. By their own admission, they only managed to land this trick once, so you might want to think twice before trying this one at home!

With a penchant for highlighting new GTA Online vehicles, Logic-Films and DeejayJeanP are back, this time honoring the sleek and powerful Emperor ETR1. Deejay intercuts flattering angles of the ETR1 with beautiful shots of a sun-soaked San Andreas to show the obvious appeal of this new Super.

 

If you've got any excellent Cunning Stunts or Rockstar Editor clips you'd like to share with us, be sure to hit us up via Mouthoff or share them in the comments below.
