So how much money is the average job giving now? I hope it's substantially more than before.
I hadn't thought of dragging carcasses, that's awesome. So you can bring in two big kills that way. The other day I had 3 pelts, a big elk pelt, 2 birds, and a rabbit, and with all the skins, antlers, some of the meat, and the bird/rabbit carcasses I came away with nearly $50. I don't even have the varmint rifle yet so the birds and rabbit dropped to 2 stars when I killed them.That's right, pick up the carcass and stow it on your steed after skinning it. You could also lasso the unskinned animal and drag it to the butcher, then skin it after you've sold some stuff. All of that dragging doesn't effect quality. Skinned carcasses can't be lassoed as of a few days ago.
The three star baby alligators are a good payout, far more efficient vs the bigguns since the skins can be stowed like you would deer hides, draped on the back of your horse
It looks like they haven't nerfed the exotic birds north of Saint Denis, thankfully. They have smaller carcasses so you can hang them on the side of your horse, like bunnies.
Yeah, I don't notice anything on my end. My stranger missions are still broke as well. It says I'm on a one (can't fast travel) but no way to complete the mission.
Gold bars are the MT currency and we don't really know the exact worth right now because you can't actually buy them yet. Only earn ingame, so no pricing info currently.
I have no idea. Normally I'd say Rockstar would probably be quick to change this (They seem eager to force everyone to play with randoms even though there's no real reason to force people to play with people they don't want to play with. If they really want the right way to encourage people to play with others, make it fun to play with others so people actually want to be with other people. Don't make it catered towards people who like to make other people miserable and then force everyone to be in with them... oh wait, one way makes a lot more money). But, the bug can only be exploited a limited amount of times (you only get one cutscene per stranger and then they are named and don't give you cut scenes anymore) so it's not like people won't eventually be forced in a multi-session.
As I mentioned before - my concern is the lack of things to do, not the economy. I figured the economy would be tweaked given the outrage. There doesn't seem to be as much of an outcry on the lack of shit to do, though.
Different servers maybe? I’m actually not sure if I got the changes. The only thing that seems different for me are the gun prices. The rest appears to be the same.
Wow, if the refunds actually go out for the price difference (as per the patch notes), I should have some serious money coming in.If you have the companion app installed, you can check out the prices of the guns in the online catalog. Slow day at work, so I'll list 'em here:
I only remember the old prices for a few of them, so please forgive me that I don't have all the old prices.
Mauser Pistol = $600 (was $1000 IIRC)
Semi-Auto Shotgun = $540
Carcano Rifle = $456
Semi-Auto Pistol = $537
Rolling Rock Rifle = $411
Repeating Shotgun = $434
Volcanic Pistol = $270
Litchfield Repeater = $348
Pump Action Shotgun = $266 (was $444)
Lancaster Repeater = $243
Bolt-Action Rifle = $216 (was ~$380)
Schofield Revolver = $192
Double-Barreled Shotgun = $185
Springfield Rifle = $156
Double Action Revolver = $127
Sawed-Off Shotgun = $111
Bow = $124 (Pretty sure this didn't change at all)
Cattleman Revolver = $50
Varmint Rifle = ??? (was $76, but I own it so can't see the price)
Have you run a mission/job yet? I can't imagine different servers making a difference. If the game is patched, it should be patched.
Therein lies the biggest current issue. They can fix the economy, but if they don't start adding shit to do in the game, I don't know how it's going to survive. There are only so many mail bags and carriages I can stand to deliver. At some point, I need something more in depth.
