GTA Online Jobs On Film: Stunt Races Created by the Social Club Community

Posted 3 weeks, 3 days ago | Author: R* Q | Filed Under: Social Club, Games

With the Stunt Race Creator now having been in the hands of the community for just over a month, we've seen a flurry of YouTubers uploading their adventures playing some of these imaginative user-created Stunt Races. Check out this round-up of a few of our favorite custom Stunt Race gameplay videos, and if you fancy playing any of these yourself, just bookmark the link below each of the videos to have them readily available the next time you head into GTA Online.

The Impossible Maze by MM7 Games

Miniminter and the Sidemen play through a day one Job by Evil_tuinhek of the well-known Nonchalant Dominance Crew. This Race for up to 20 players weaves together several Crossover props (Tuinhek has used additional props just for aesthetic purposes, a creative touch that brings the Race to life), and there are also excellent opportunities for stragglers to vindictively take out leaders in this one and level the playing field.

The Job:  BEST RACE OF ALL TIME!? by Unspoken_OUCH (XB1)
The Video: Creator Stunt Races & Entourage with Special Community Guests by Rockstar Broadcast Team

With the audible cries of one particularly frustrated Rockstar Broadcast Team member in the background, Evolve Stunting's ohBrox and Snapmatic virtuoso Charmlessrogue have a much better go at the ginormous ramps and intense wallrides of Unspoken_Ouch's "BEST RACE OF ALL TIME!?" Watch as they, along with Viboxing and Gtamen and others, attempt to tackle this one (you can also watch the full broadcast in its entirety here).

Top 3 Creator Maps of the Week Ep. 126 by Gtamen

A walkthrough from the effusive Gtamen, who picked this map out as his favorite during the first week of the GTA Online Stunt Creator’s availability. As he puts it himself, "It's brilliant. It's f*&$%ing brilliant. I love it. It's so well done." Couldn't have said it better. This track uses the new Split Checkpoints feature to create maximum opportunity for crashes. We also like the use of the Slow Down prop to create a stomach churning mid-air break in the space-time continuum.

The Job:  Hole in one by TinyMarvelous (PC)

GTA 5 Cunning Stunts: Hole in One by Spelarkivet

While there's no commentary in this one, it's still worth a look for a demo of a super crisp Stunt Race. TinyMarvelous uses props brilliantly to create not only a quarter pipe transfer straight off the opening grid, but also a delicately balanced leap into a hole in one. Kudos as well for using cut out tubes to give racers who overshoot the tunnel opening a chance to re-join the Race.

The Job:  3 Stunt Monte by MTL_RELLIK (XB1)

Swiftor gets off to a rough start in this Stunt Race made by longtime collaborator Rellik. Watch as Swift deftly maneuvers through three major stunts - culminating in a major wallride, half pipe and loop tube combination.

If you're looking to get your Stunt Race tested out, you could do worse than to get in touch with Random GTA V Moments, who have put out a call on Reddit to test out users' Jobs and publish videos. Listen to him and his friends evaluate the Race as they play and offer some constructive feedback on the Jobs tested so far.

The Video: Templar Tube Circuit by Moppaking
Moppaking's wordless tour of this circuit, set to a thumping techno soundtrack, is a mesmerizing exhibition in Race-craft. As moppaking explains, the track is "aimed at endurance Races, since it comes with a proper pit lane and has to be played in GTA mode for the repair kits to appear."

Fan Vids Round-up: GTA Online Cunning Stunts Showcases, When Nature Calls & More

Posted on August 31 2016, 12:56pm | Author: R* L | Filed Under: Games

The latest collection of Fan Videos showcases folks working wonders with GTA Online: Cunning Stunts, some of Los Santos' finest auteurs continuing to dazzle with the Rockstar Editor and more. This round-up features a beautifully-shot piece that will leave you wanting to run straight to Vespucci Beach, new music from an old friend, and a graphic Western homage. Check out these and more visual treats below.


GTA 5 - Cunning Stunts DLC | Vehicle Showcase #2 by EvolveStunting

Last seen at the Newswire in February with some impressive BMX trickery, the Evolve gang is back at it with their second Cunning Stunts vehicle showcase. Having already released one Cunning Stunts showcase, watch this time around as these stunters take it to the limit and get top level performances out of the ETR1, RE-7B, BF400 and all the rest.


Low Tide (GTA 5 Rockstar Editor Machinima) by Logic-Films

As a collective, Logic-Films are known primarily for stylish showcases of GTA Online vehicles. This time around, editor Drowsy mixes things up with a tribute to summer. Set to XY & O's song of the same name, the video - according to the group's blog - was "inspired by different photographers/video makers who do very beautiful lifestyle/travel work." With mesmerizing sunrises, enticing waves and shots of Los Santos beach bums in their natural habitat, the warm and sunny vibes of this clip make for a perfect epilogue in the last fleeting days of summer.


Power Unlimited - GTA V Rockstar Editor by K Mountilla

K Mountilla sent us this tribute to the vehicles of Los Santos, captured during a PS4 car meet and sporting a deep roster of cars and motorcycles from GTA Online. K combines sexy close-ups, first-person POV and shots that change velocity, dancing along to the soundtrack. Particularly exhilarating is this lightning-fast sequence from behind the wheel.


GTA V - When Nature Calls (Rockstar Editor) by Duggy

Previously featured at the Newswire, for his use of GTAV as an inspired backdrop for Carl Sagan's Pale Blue Dot soliloquy - this time Duggy addresses the seemingly innocent and victimless act of relieving oneself in the woods. Watch as Michael peacefully breaks the seal, only for it to give him the scare of a lifetime. Think the Fighting Trees from The Wizard of Oz, only weirder...


Mission Music [Original] by SquidPhysics

Long-time Rockstar theme song cover wizard Squid Physics, known for epic one-man-band versions of the music from GTA III, GTAV and everything in between, has decided to branch out into the world of originals. First releasing the theme from an imagined GTA set in Las Venturas in June, Squid then released this music which is supposed to be the accompaniment to an imaginary Grand Theft Auto desert mission. Broken into three parts - "a stealth bit, firefight and getaway" - this piece at times has hints of Middle Eastern, Western and even free jazz influences. Also worth a listen is Squid's recent Vice City-inspired theme, which uses the original as a starting point and takes it to maximum levels of funkiness.


GTA V - Ricochet [Rockstar Editor Short] by Zadrium

The REBL Crew's Zadrium is responsible for this homage to the Western film genre. Kicking things off with "Man with a Harmonica" (off the staple Once Upon a Time in the West and by Spaghetti Western soundtrack king Ennio Morricone), it's evident from the start that the standoff won't end in a handshake, even when the soundtrack shifts to Andrea Bocelli's "Con te Partirò," a song with a rich cinematic history of its own.


Lampshades (PC Rockstar Editor) by Lu Iggy

Modest Mouse fan Lu Iggy took inspiration from the video to their 2014 hit "Lampshades on Fire" and the result is an excellent reimagining. Mr. Iggy, who's The Raid made it into a previous Newswire round-up this past March (definitely check out Part 2 here), uses a similar cutting style as the original and takes it a step further with all sorts of unsavory characters.


GTA Online: Sumo by Channel V

Inspired by the traditional Japanese sport of Sumo itself, Channel V's tribute to the GTA Online Sumo Mode features two Vapid Slamvans wrestling it out for supremacy. The producers put some brilliant touches on this one - from the use of the Oriental Theater location in Downtown Vinewood to the Eastern-flavored soundtrack and clever nods to Shiko (the routine stamping of the legs by Sumo wrestlers for intimidation), to the full grappling bout.

Protect your neck with 50% off Body Armor and Pistols, and with SMGs and Assault Rifles at 25% off, you can hit your foes hard and not your bank account.

Watch the Winning Video of the #CEO Rockstar Editor Contest: "Sellin' Dope" by Bill_BENEDICT

Posted on August 24 2016, 12:02pm | Author: R* Q | Filed Under: Social Club, Games

Building a criminal empire is no small feat; building a silver screen masterpiece that documents the endeavor ain't easy either. Shout out to every filmmaker from the Social Club community who submitted their creative criminal antics to the #CEO Rockstar Editor contest. After watching every single entry there can be only one winner: a huge congratulations to Social Club member Bill_BENEDICT for his grand jury prize winning entry, “SELLIN' DOPE.” Along with inalienable bragging rights, Bill will be receiving the customized Director's Chair, the super rare GTAV Varsity Jacket complete with Director's patch and the coveted Rockstar Editor trophy.

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 on August 22 2016, 11:02am | 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.
