Response to archived conversation

Good day Monk, I just wish to inform you that I have responded to your message regarding the "Water Transport" category in Archive 23. It is a relatively unimportant response, but I felt that it would be appropriate to notify you, since I replied after you had archived your Talk page, and you may have missed it otherwise.

Already seen, thanks. The bot has done the job, btw. I also realised I can start using the bot to replace files that appear in millions of pages that have been renamed...so if you ever need a file link to be updated after the file has been renamed, that appears on lots of pages, give me a shout. The bot-job list is defunct so I'm going to delete that. Just contact me if you ever need the bot to do something. Monk Talk 16:25, November 10, 2016 (UTC)
I see. That is quite convenient; thank you for telling me. By the way, have you gotten the bot able to italicize Grand Theft Auto titles yet?

Drats. Please let me know if and when you make it do so, then I can stop the repetitive task of italicizing the titles.

File name?

  • What's wrong with the file name of "File:Niko Bellic Transparent.png"? It isn't for any article; it was only for my userspace. I'm just wondering why you moved it, because I don't see anything wrong with the original name, personally. Krade (Board Contribs) 16:36, November 10, 2016 (UTC)
While files on user pages can be unlicensed, we personally prefer the files to be named consistently with those appearing on other articles, regardless of where they appear - this makes them easier to manage for whatever in future. Simply put, avoid spaces and mention game abbreviations if necessary. We don't usually rename them unless they are really poorly named (i.e, asdabdoasbodsa.jpg would be a poor file name and the file would either be renamed or deleted depending on how necessary the image is to the wiki) (if it's a random file completely unrelated to GTA, regardless of whether it appears on a user page or an article, it would be deleted but if it was a good quality GTA picture, just poorly named, we'd consider renaming it rather than deleting it). I only renamed yours today as I was cleaning up the recent uploads and saw that yours didn't quite match - it probably wouldn't happen normally :p. Don't feel threatened or offended by this, as this isn't an offense unless files are inserted to articles without proper names or licenses. Thanks. Stay safe :) Monk Talk 16:42, November 10, 2016 (UTC)
  • Alright, I understand. Thanks. Krade (Board Contribs) 16:46, November 10, 2016 (UTC)

Gang Attacks Photo

Why did you remove my photo on Gang Attacks?

It was on topic, and I thought it was helpful. Why? —Preceding unsigned comment added by PwnageSoldier (talkcontribs) Please remember to sign your talk page messages with ~~~~.

It was poor quality - it appears to have been taken using a phone or camera, rather than a screenshot of the actual game. Large resolution doesn't make up for phone/camera shots. It was also unlicensed and poorly named. Please review the GTA Wiki:Media Policy for more information. Thanks. Monk Talk 17:02, November 10, 2016 (UTC)
I apologize, I added a description (summary) and put a license on it. But it remains of poor quality. I can't take high res photos on PS3, can I? So, yeah I did take it with a camera. I will not re-add this to the "Gang Attacks" topic until a photo with higher resolution is taken. PwnageSoldier (talk) 17:10, November 10, 2016 (UTC)
Unfortunately not. Perhaps you can purchase a capture card, move onto a platform that allows screen capturing, or request someone else to take the picture you're trying to upload (use the talk page of the article :p). Sorry I can't help you anymore than that, I realise it can be frustrating. Monk Talk 17:12, November 10, 2016 (UTC)
I'm a PS4 player as well, but I don't have a PS+ subscription, I have way worse stats, cash amount and level, and I don't find paying for next gen fun when last gen is still more fun. I'll try to buy a capture card. Thanks. PwnageSoldier (talk) 17:15, November 10, 2016 (UTC)

Sandbox Invitation

Thought I'd invite you to my personal sandbox to practice around internal/model names for make-believe vehicles. If these vehicles ended up in a future DLC release, they're most likely coincidental and never intentional. Enjoy! ;) JohnSignature 00:04, November 11, 2016 (UTC)

Blocking Policy

Considering your blocking policy that was only made by you and was closed successfuly that no one can break it, you broke it. For my behaviour, it says that I should be banned only for one week since it was first time, not infinitely. Mind explaining ? —Preceding unsigned comment added by Mantiix (talkcontribs) Please remember to sign your talk page messages with ~~~~.

Looking at your chat ban log, we can see quite clearly this is not your 'first time'.
Let us also consider:
  • You have made only 25 edits,
    • 10 of which are mainspace
    • 7 of which are vandalism
      • 4 of which are hate towards users

Let us also consider your behaviour on other wikis, your involvement with this wiki, and the behaviour in this wiki's Chat.

In conclusion, I have not broken the policy, I have not breached the policy, and the block will not be listed.
Monk Talk 11:45, November 13, 2016 (UTC)
Bullshit. That's what I do on other wikis is not of your business, vandalism was already seen and even you gave me a chance unblocking me from infinite block, and also these 2 other bans weren't even connected to this wiki. Your smart brother banned me for no reason once. Mantiix (talk) 18:42, November 13, 2016 (UTC)
What happens on other wikis can have an effect on how people view you on other wikis, regardless of what it may be. Your vandalism was intentionally done, you cannot deny that it was not you, and personally your vandalism edits have come back to haunt you, as I feel they make up 50% of the reason you are now permanently banned from the GTA Wiki Chat. That is the end of this discussion. Goodbye. Monk Talk 19:07, November 13, 2016 (UTC)

RE: Inttxd

"txd" refers to "texture dictionary" rather than individual textures, so only V has an "intxd". For IV just refer to whatever the interior texture is called and for 3D universe either leave it empty or note that that interiors are generic and shared with just about every other vehicle.

And yes, that is correct. If there's a change in texturing, and it has a different name, then use this name. V-michael-trunk-miniV-franklin-trunk-miniV-trevor-trunk-mini 11-13-2016, 11:09:08 (EST)

Insurgent's Engine Model Image

The correct terminology of engine bay is the hood open, showing the entire engine sitting in its space. Could we somehow circumvent that MOS/V rule since the Insurgent and the other vehicles have no engine model? 

If that can't be changed and would rather have placeholder images, then one image for the Insurgent's sexy hood coming right up.

--Tony42898 (Talker - Blogger - Stalker)-- 19:58, November 15, 2016 (UTC)

There isn't a need to change it - the MOS already complies with this exception:
"Engine bay - A view of the engine (OR where the engine would be if the vehicle's engine cannot be seen)"
MOS Vehicle Content
Monk Talk 20:01, November 15, 2016 (UTC)
I had never really thought about the logic behind the "engine bay =/= engine placement" rule, I'm aware what the bay means, however because the name "engine bay" was implemented into the design gallery system way before I even knew about the design galleries altogether, I had never really pondered on questioning it. We can change the title to "Engine view", if that would be more appropriate, as that does accept this exception, however we can't change the template field name without the help of the bot. Monk Talk 20:06, November 15, 2016 (UTC)
I agree that "Engine View" is indeed a more appropriate name for that particular Design Gallery image. However, for ease of editing, I would strongly suggest that the template parameter name be changed to "Engine_view_imagename". Additionally, I noticed that the "Other modelling" image has the rather strange parameter name "Damage_view_imagename", which is highly confusing in my opinion, and I recommend changing the parameter name to "Other_modelling_imagename" or something similarly appropriate.
UPDATE: I seem to have initially missed the gist of your last message Monk, as I now realize that you have already acknowledged the "Engine_bay_imagename" parameter name discrepancy that I mentioned above. However, as I also said, the "Damage_view_imagename" parameter name should also be updated when you make your bot update the parameters.

TAlim 1994 - Konan T-A Lim 林道安 (talk | contributions) 08:30, November 16, 2016 (UTC)
As I said already, I can only change parameter names with the help of the bot updating all the pages, which I am not doing yet. Damage view is named damage view because it was originally what it was - a damage shot of the car. Monk Talk 16:30, November 16, 2016 (UTC)
I see. Thank you for clarifying. Just to be certain, when you do come round to making your bot update the parameter names, do you also intend to change the "Damage_view_imagename" parameter, since the image that occupies that spot is no longer used for that purpose?

Jobs for your bot

Good day Monk, I have another job for your bot, but it is quite specific: make it add <noinclude> tags around [[Category:Userboxes]] links in templates if - and only if - the links are not already under the effects of <noinclude> tags. The reason for this is because a number of Userboxes apparently are not under the effects of the <noinclude> tags, as a number of User pages - including Sam's - are in the "Userboxes" category, which is almost certainly a result of an incorrectly tagged category in a Userbox template.

Capiton positions on Gallery's

What is so awful about changing the gallery captionalign position ? Monk, i am just asking. I'm sorry if i make you nervous. GTAFan86 (talk) 15:47, November 26, 2016 (UTC)

You're not making me "nervous". The standardization is "gallery center", as the bot has been doing, as we have all being doing - I don't see why we should now start centering captions, it looks awful, especially on longer ones. Gallery center is quite enough. Monk Talk 15:48, November 26, 2016 (UTC)

RE: Swift Livery

lol. don't panic.

I knew that since the Flight School Update became a thing. Which is why I was explicitly against splitting off Swift Classic from Flying Bravo.

The no-livery spawns in black. The livery spawns in white (because some liveries can be painted over). Dunno about IV, but the system DOES work in V. It's just that for some reason when you spawn it with trainers, it doesn't work. If you throw it into traffic, it will spawn as intended. Same for the Burritos - replace the popgroups file with Burritos only, and you'll never get all colors with all liveries.

Burger Shot Stallion I'm guessing is because livery support and the clutter. And since R* always wanted it to be available from websites, they went with a separate model instead of "buy stock, customize it yourself in LSC".

Tyrus either intended to spawn with a livery (but failed because the geniuses at R* made liveries a mod part), or they just got lazy. Why they added new colors, I don't know, but I have a suspicion going on as to why that happened.

Marshall is just like Swift/Burrito/Whateverelse. Dump it into traffic, it will spawn correctly. Either way, yes, the script specifies what livery/combo it needs to spawn with when ordering from Pegasus, otherwise it would be randomized when you'd order it - and that'd negate the purpose of making more money off selling the exact same model while passing it off as a separate one.

Post Op Boxville is either one of those: separate model to not fuck around with the original (especially because on Last-Gen R* thinks that vehicle models are not updatable, ever), make it easier on the scripting (copy paste model with all the work done vs an existing model coded over and over again to spawn with an exact livery and color combo), or someone not knowing they can replace models because that's not the first time R* literally copy pasted a model and used it as the mission/website vehicle (*looks at Heist Dinghy*).

So yeah, the system does work as intended. The rest is R* logic, basically. V-michael-trunk-miniV-franklin-trunk-miniV-trevor-trunk-mini 11-28-2016, 12:48:38 (EST)

Regarding my deleted disambiguation page

Good day Monk, I noticed that you have deleted my disambiguation page for "Vortex". I do not dispute the deletion, but if your rule were to be followed, should not the "Internet" page be deleted also? Like the former, that page is also for only two pages.

TAlim 1994 - Konan T-A Lim 林道安 (talk | contributions) 19:52, November 28, 2016 (UTC)

Why not. I don't know every page that meets this criteria, I'm just saying, the one you created, it's literally 2 different things, not exactly disambiguous. Monk Talk 20:13, November 28, 2016 (UTC)
I have deleted the page. Just to verify, how many similarly named pages should there be to warrant the creation of a disambiguation page in your opinion?
UPDATE: I have re-read your delete reason for the "Vortex" page, and I see that you have already answered my question: at least three pages need to exist with similar names before a disambiguation page should be created. I will follow this rule in the future. Thank you.

Regarding the Special Vehicles article

Hello Monk, I have an issue with a particular page that has vexed me rather hopelessly: the Special Vehicles article has a header page that is used as a template on several pages, but it specifies that it is for 3D Universe vehicles only. Since special vehicles appear in both the 3D Universe as well as the HD Universe, the header is outdated, though I have not a clue as to what to do to make the header more compatible. Since you specialize in vehicle pages, I hope that you might have a better idea as to what to do.

TAlim 1994 - Konan T-A Lim 林道安 (talk | contributions) 08:39, November 30, 2016 (UTC)

I don't see an issue - the template header is only found on 3D Universe pages, the games, etc. We don't need a header for HD Universe special pages, as no special vehicles have these unique properties in the HD Universe. Monk Talk 17:17, December 5, 2016 (UTC)
The issue is actually more specifically with the Special Vehicles article itself: the page has the header page template on it, but if you scroll down to the "By game" section, the list mentions HD Universe games as well as 3D Universe games, creating what I feel is a potentially misleading discrepency, as it might confuse people not familiar with the Grand Theft Auto series into thinking that games that are actually set in the HD Universe are in the 3D Universe. I would suggest either making some modifications to the header page template, or removing the template from the Special Vehicles article.

Camilo Flores

Hey Monk, has Camilo Flores ever flipped out on everyone for no apparent reason and then decide to leave the wiki? Because he did that on the Watch Dogs Wiki, where he was a big help, and he just left flat out of nowhere. And I think he's done that here on this wiki before, if I'm correct. Am I? Just wanted to make sure, because he seems unpredictable. Chris6d (talk) 21:09, December 2, 2016 (UTC)

Lol. Wouldn't be the first time. Monk Talk 21:32, December 2, 2016 (UTC)

Regarding the "Administrator" template

Good day Monk, I wish to thank you for correcting my error with regards to the |link= code that I removed from the "Administrator" template. Despite my edit summary, the primary reason why I removed the code was for consistency reasons, as neither the "Patroller" template nor the "Bureaucrat" template had it. I have since added the code to all the Staff templates.

TAlim 1994 - Konan T-A Lim 林道安 (talk | contributions) 12:52, December 4, 2016 (UTC)

No trouble, thanks for finishing the job off for me.
I also wish to apologise if I came across rude on Steam chat; I was rather busy as the internet was going off, on, had to keep turning off my PC, etc. The issue I had was a fault in the wall socket which I fixed myself in the end anyway. Thanks :)
PS what are your thoughts on the wiki's Christmas theme? Monk Talk 12:55, December 4, 2016 (UTC)
Not a problem, your frustration was understandable given the issues with your Internet, and I am glad that you resolved the problem.
With regards to the Christmas theme, I remember that we used almost exactly the same theme last year, but I must say that the animated snow is a very nice addition. The only qualm that I have is that the background image is (for me at least) tiled vertically down the page, as opposed to remaining fixed when the page is scrolled (as the normal background image is). I attempted to correct the problem, but to no avail. It seems that the issue is a too-small image size, so if you have a larger copy of the image on your PC, I suggest that you try using it. By the way, how did you add the animated snow?
Thirdly, have you had a chance to look at either of these two issues? If not, please try and look into them at some point.
Finally, Just to verify, do you need to be logged into your bot account before it can edit, or can it execute its tasks spontaneously without you being signed in? I noticed that it did not automatically add a redirect page that I created to the "Redirects" category.
TAlim 1994 - Konan T-A Lim 林道安 (talk | contributions) 08:19, December 5, 2016 (UTC)
I do not have a larger copy unfortunately, I can't see how I can fix it from scrolling, it IS really annoying. The Snow is a JS script on the MediaWiki:ImportJS page. I planned on editing the script to make more snow fall but it dramatically slows down website loading times.
I haven't had a chance to look back at the two pages. I can't see the main page issue so I can't really fix that really. Special Vehicles - I'll take a look.
Bot - I don't have to be signed on on the wiki, just the AWB software. Not sure what you mean by the redirect situation, could you rephrase that? Monk Talk 15:50, December 5, 2016 (UTC)
With regards to the background image, why don't you try upscaling the image (stretching the original image using Paint, Photoshop or similar editing software), saving the stretched image as the default resolution, then using it as the wiki background. Since the image is stretched anyway in the background it should not impact its quality. Try upscaling the image to the same dimensions as the normal background image.
With regards to the Main Page issue, what are you not able to see, what browser are you using, and what page are you looking at exactly: the Main Page itself, the slider template or another template?
With regards to the redirects, there is no immediate issue as far as I can tell, but how long does it normally take between the creation of an uncategorized redirect and the bot adding it to the "Redirects" category? A few months ago I checked an uncategorized redirect that I made around ten minutes after I made it, and I noticed that it was still not added to the "Redirects" category at that time.
TAlim 1994 - Konan T-A Lim 林道安 (talk | contributions) 21:01, December 6, 2016 (UTC)
Main Page - I don't see the issue because all my devices are widescreen and fixed widescreen width. Perhaps you can try fix it yourself.
I don't think you understand how the bot works - it isn't just going to "add" the category any time a redirect is created. It isn't fully automated. I would have to tell it to add categories to the latest redirect pages, I can't get it to do it ANY time a redirect is created. Monk Talk 15:37, December 7, 2016 (UTC)
You were correct: I did not properly understand how the bot works, and I thank you for clarifying. Also, since you cannot see the problem on the Main Page that I am asking you to fix, I will try to fix it again myself at some point.

About Cam...

Just being a curious little bastard, but what happened to Camilo? Seems that the vehicle model name assumption thing drove him off... with that being said, I probably answered my own question lol.

--Tony42898 (Talker - Blogger - Stalker)-- 08:59, December 6, 2016 (UTC)

Camilo left because he "didn't feel welcome anymore". In actuality, Camilo left because he couldn't decipher a little old quote a like to live up to, "if a job's worth doing it's worth doing properly";
When Camilo left "last" time, he said he wouldn't be returning again....what he meant was he wouldn't be editing for 22 days, which is considered to be a "long time". My only assumption, which is probably true knowing the past "fall outs" we had, is that he left (on the 18th of October) because he was "insulted" by my advice; in a nutshell, Camilo's main contribution in my concern was rewriting performance sections and basically trashing them with his poor grammar and English; while everyone is entitled to edit, I was merely trying to advise him to work on what bits he was rewriting so I wouldn't have to fix up his grammar and English. Obviously my advice was thrown out of the window when he left back in October and full-on taken as an insult just this November, so I have no intentions of helping the user again.
He left in November for one absolutely certain reason (given the edit summaries); he couldn't, as I already said, decipher the meaning of the phrase "if a job's worth doing it's worth doing properly"; as part of the infobox extension WildBrick created, I decided to help out as the major part in filling in all the fields. Now, being the quote follower I am, I decided it was best to take this slowly and get everything filled in on EACH page rather than rushing through pages and MISSING information. This infobox extension only took off just around the time Camilo left in October, which meant that I was really the only one working on it - I had no problem with this, as even WildBrick stated (no source, think was in chat?) there was absolutely no rush or immediate demand for the extension project, so I was laid back and planned on doing the absolute majority of pages.
Camilo returns after a "long break", and sees that all the necessary information for the infobox parts, including the vehicles.ide, vehicles.meta and all CarCols.dat date had been added to the wiki by me recently. He decided to hop on the band wagon and "help", but when I (and WildBrick just yesterday) picked up on the fact he was merely guess-ing information for the infoboxes, I was very reluctant on letting him do that - of course, wiki being wiki allows him to edit anything unrestricted, so I can't and wasn't "stopping him from editing", I was recommending him to avoid "attempting" to fill in information if he wasn't solid on knowing it. Incidentally, I DID provide a pretty simple guide on knowing how to fill in this information into the sandbox, but I don't think he had the care to check this out, so more fool him for doing so. I guess you could say, he brought it on himself. So after noticing this, I recommended he stick to the 3D universe vehicles, as that's much less complex information (be careful, too complex may confuse Camilo). Of course, he partially stuck by this, but he still didn't quite get the message when I insisted that the job was worth doing properly, so he starts filling in 3D universe information and that caused problems when it came to 3D+HD universe vehicles, generic vehicles such as the Bus, Sentinel, etc, so now the EXTREME majority of infoboxes are now HALF COMPLETE, which has of course, really messed up my plans.
To conclude, he "leaves for a long time", returns when he sees the opportunity to practically hijack the speed and efficiency of my project, and then leaves me along with the guilt, blame and reputation of apparently "not welcoming him here". I am absolutely not going to stand being responsible for him leaving. He made that choice, I made it loud and clear for him to stop with the guessing information, the random reverting, the assumptions, etc, I made it clear how the project should and would have gone, how it was best to have gone, but he chose to ignore that, carry on, leave me with a partially-built project, and leave me with that. I'm a heavily depressed man, Tony, do you think I am going to stand for that? Do you think I will stand for being held responsible for something that isn't remotely my fault? I held my hand out with all the information needed to help him, even though I had no idea he was going to jump in the role of taking on such a big project, but I still allowed him to continue, and he left because he couldn't listen? Or was it just to make me feel bad?
As you can see, I have a lot to say about this, because quite frankly, I don't know what else to think. Monk Talk 15:43, December 6, 2016 (UTC)

Import/Export

Truffade is probably the Chiron.

The Progen could be a newer McLaren, but it could also be the 12C. They're pretty popular and I'm surprised it hasn't been added to be honest.

Can almost guarantee the Blazer Aqua is a quadski. Not sure about rockets though.

Could the rocket Voltic be the Venom? It's either a car that fires rockets, or a car where rocket is a reference to speed.

Think you're spot on with the DB11 though.

I'll keep an eye out for leaked images of the content though, that will give us a much better idea of what to expect.

The rumored December DLC was supposedly split in two due to its size, so we might not see all of them immediately. 5.7mil for a car though? Leo68 (talk) 22:12, December 7, 2016 (UTC)

The fact there's a Nero and Nero Custom supports the idea of Chiron and Chiron GT
My thoughts exactly with McLaren. Probably the 675t and its race counterpart.
Rocket Voltic is rocket voltaic - it's literally a Voltic with rockets attached, firing ones. There's a diagram pic from RSC leaked, same with the wedges.
The update will likely be like FAIFAF and bikers: Continuations. I reckon it'll release 13 cars at first, similar to previous large updates, and the other 12 across 4 weeks of 3 cars per week. Monk Talk 22:24, December 7, 2016 (UTC)
Sounds about right. Unless they drag it out like Bikers and we have 12 weeks of sales and a new vehicle every week. Most of the shit I'm seeing is fake, no images yet but certainly code. I expect it'll be released on the 20th, so that they can add the Christmas content as well. Leo68 (talk) 22:32, December 7, 2016 (UTC)

Speedos

The speedometers in GTA 5 are known to be completely false, I removed that part because speedometers always contradict actual speed. Matrexpingvin (talk) 13:44, December 10, 2016 (UTC)

And? It's still information, they're still statistics, even if they're "wrong", it's still information which varies between vehicles and should be mentioned on articles. The statement wherein the speedometer was mentioned was merely clarifying that the top speed of the car in both files and speedometers doesn't match the actual top speed of the car, it never mentioned anything about the speedometer being "correct". Monk Talk 14:05, December 10, 2016 (UTC)

Look, I've made some mistakes and I'm sorry. I'll be more careful in the future and will only correct actual grammar and stuff like that. I never meant to have a negative effect on the wiki. Matrexpingvin (talk) 16:53, December 10, 2016 (UTC)

Me

In response to every mess I've caused, let me say that I am sorry. Really sorry.

Basically my attitude was worse because of many problems in both personal life and on the wiki and, as you said, I hardly take friendly advices to improve my behaviour, which is pretty much a fatal mistake (finally recognize that), so, in an apparent unstability of my emotions, I was very depressed to even listen the proper ways to improve and not to "de-prove".

If there is still an opportunity to edit around there, I promise that I would improve my editings and fixing anything that was messed up (and to not get involved in another future vehicle project anymore, just sticking to the basics).

Can I be here? Thanks in advance. --BodyArmor-GTACW-Android SWAT Cam F VehicleWeapon-GTACW-Android Detonator-GTACW-Android Crate-GTACW-Android 19:17, December 13, 2016 (UTC)

You just can't resist can you? Honestly Camilo, whether you stay here or not is A) not my problem and B) not my decision. If you don't like it, go, simple. I don't like your attitude lately so I don't (and won't) want to help you. I can't just accept an apology when it's happening time and time and time and time again. You say you won't get in the way with things, and you do. I don't mind that, but when you get in the way and slow things down, OR get in the way and do things wrong, that's when I do mind. And your attitude at WD Wiki tells me this "BYE!" attitude keeps recurring. Monk Talk 20:31, December 13, 2016 (UTC)
I know this isn't any of my business, but Monk, you have to expect people to say things like Camillo said. Ali said he'd leave the myths wiki. Took him a while to mean it. I said the same thing, and it took about two months, but I did. I contemplated leaving wikia, but settled against it, because you're still here, and i can't hate every wiki, for something some tiny wiki did. Camillo, deeply consider whether or not you want to leave, before announcing it. MHM (talk) 22:20, December 14, 2016 (UTC)

Vehicle Pages

Thanks for filling in the blanks, I really need to replace the piece of shit I call my computer. On another note, have the other vehicles been found in the files? I noticed the ItaliGTB was up and I hear there's another 12 vehicles to come. Leo68 (talk) 21:50, December 13, 2016 (UTC)

Yeah they're all in the files:
  • Nero
  • Nero Custom
  • Itali GTB
  • Itali GTB Custom
  • Ruiner3 (unused)
  • FCR 1000
  • FCR 1000 Custom
  • Comet Retro Custom
I'll create the pages tomorrow. The images of the vehicles up, I left the Legendary MS descriptions on the source of the main import/export page. :) Monk Talk 21:58, December 13, 2016 (UTC)
Looking forward to seeing the Nero. Big fan of the Chiron, has to be what it is. RIP Adder. You could say RIP X80 too. Rocket Voltic is better in every way, and costs more (for those snooty folk who want to have the most expensive car in the game). Leo68 (talk) 22:10, December 13, 2016 (UTC)
Nero Custom is a right rip off of the Vision GT haha. Shame that the Nero appears to share the same top speed as Adder (though I didnt look at the drag and force figures), and Nero Custom is .2 more than Nero. Lmao. Monk Talk 22:15, December 13, 2016 (UTC)

Hi, im HR-670, and I want to be a patroller of this wiki. I'm also a big fan vehicles in all GTA Series and real life.HURACAN-LP670 (talk) 04:56, December 14, 2016 (UTC)

Good day sir, I see that you wish to be a Patroller on the GTA Wiki. Please refer to this page to make a request to be promoted. However, please do not lodge a request at this time, as you do not currently meet the promotion criteria, which requires applicants to have been active on the GTA Wiki for at least two months, with at least 500 constructive edits (though exceptions may be made on the second rule).

Regarding the Dodo

Good day Monk, I seek your opinion on one of my recent actions: I added the Dodo to the "Amphibious Vehicles" category, as it is able to land on both land and water, and I wish to know whether you feel it is appropriate for it to be there.

User:White44Tree

We need to contact Wikia to make sure that he's no longer welcome in Wikia whatsoever so it prevents him from causing any problems on any other Wikias he sets foot in, as in him being blocked from accessing any Wikias at all. Its like he basically begs for attention and accuses admins for trolling so he'll need a hard lesson he'll never forget. Thought I'd let you know is all. JohnSignature 19:41, December 14, 2016 (UTC)

I do not believe that we need to go as far as that. While I agree that "White44Tree"'s behaviour towards me is unacceptable, he apparently intended it as a "joke". As I have already mentioned on his Talk page, if he had performed a similar antic on me as a close friend, I might not have minded as much (and I have at least one fairly close friend who does something similar (he routinely insults me jokingly and likes to jokingly call me a pedophile due to the fact that I have a fair number of younger Friends on Xbox LIVE)), but since he does not, it is a rather rude thing to do. I think that a month-long block - which Monk has already issued - is a sufficient consequence for his actions, and I do hope that he learns from it.
TAlim 1994 - Konan T-A Lim 林道安 (talk | contributions) 20:18, December 14, 2016 (UTC)
You can never be too careful. Especially after what happened when another user went as far as to threaten to hack GTA Wiki, or any other Wikis, months ago, which led Monk into becoming irate. If he comes back the coming year and he still shows this kind of behavior, then he's clearly showing malicious acts and its imperative that actions must be taken seriously, not just here, but everywhere else. JohnSignature 03:27, December 15, 2016 (UTC)
That is fair enough. However, I must say that had I been hacked every single time somebody had threatened to do so, my Internet connection, data, PCs, and in particular my Xbox consoles would have been compromised around three years ago; my point being that it is highly unlikely that users such as "White44Tree" actually know how to hack. Personally, I am considering studying computer hacking myself, as I find that it is useful information, and I would be able to use it both to protect myself online, and also to, for example, work with the police to catch cyber-criminals. By the way, I assume that you were referring to "Mr Zuul" (or his sockpuppet account) when you mentioned the other user?
TAlim 1994 - Konan T-A Lim 林道安 (talk | contributions) 04:54, December 15, 2016 (UTC)
Maybe. However, Mr Zuul's grammar is far too different compared to White44Tree's, plus he returned to editing rather poorly from last year so they're pretty different, so I doubt they're the same. But either way, its best to keep an eye out should his ban become lifted and resume causing trouble. JohnSignature 12:20, December 15, 2016 (UTC)
You seem to have misunderstood my question: I was not suggesting that "Mr Zuul" and "White44Tree" are the same person; rather, I was asking whether the other user who "led Monk into becoming irate" was "Mr Zuul".
TAlim 1994 - Konan T-A Lim 林道安 (talk | contributions) 07:21, December 16, 2016 (UTC)
Ah. Then yes, it is. That's what I was referring to. Sorry if my comment didn't made much sense. JohnSignature 19:12, December 16, 2016 (UTC)
Not a problem. Thank you for clarifying Johnny.

Special Vehicle Work

Hey buddy. One question.

What is more preferable to start with it? I'm thinking of creating each of the eight missions for the special vehicles and explaining how each of these works. The other option would be creating the page "Special Vehicle Work" and list every mission there, with a description of what vehicles are used and what to do in each of them. Any good hint? Thanks in advance. --BodyArmor-GTACW-Android SWAT Cam F VehicleWeapon-GTACW-Android Detonator-GTACW-Android Crate-GTACW-Android 20:23, December 14, 2016 (UTC)

On a second thought, nevermind. Maybe it is better to have them separated. Now I need to see where the "Special Vehicle Work" can be listed. (SecuroServ?, Warehouses?, anything else? I dunno). --BodyArmor-GTACW-Android SWAT Cam F VehicleWeapon-GTACW-Android Detonator-GTACW-Android Crate-GTACW-Android 21:27, December 14, 2016 (UTC)
They're accessed through Secure Serv network, so that's where it should go. Warehouses aren't to do with these missions. Monk Talk 21:33, December 14, 2016 (UTC)

San Fierro

Hi. I'm really sorry, but I want only to know why the others have deleting my content at this wiki, for example the San Fierro's motto is "The CIty of Psychedelic Wonders" and I put that in infobox and after few minutes, someone delete that.MIHAJLO150 (talk) 12:18, December 15, 2016 (UTC)

Because that is not true. Just because The Truth makes the quote, doesn't mean it's an official motto. Mottos are seen on city seals, which this is not. Also, your attitude towards editing the page and requesting people not to remove the "data" isn't responsible, as this is wikilawyering. Monk Talk 14:36, December 15, 2016 (UTC)

Basically, the model name of the vehicle is listed at the top of each "variations". Then, all the possible colors are listed underneath this, as such:
            <Item value="0" />
            <Item value="0" />
            <Item value="0" />
            <Item value="156" />
This is one of the 15 color sets this vehicle has. These numbers are the four available colors of the vehicle; primary, secondary (if has), pearl, and wheel. They correspond to a bank of 160 different default colors, in the file carcols.ymt. As you can see, the numbers are in order, and for this specific example, 0,0,0,156 would equate to Primary: Black metallic, Secondary: Black metallic, Pearl: Black metallic, and Wheel: Default Alloy Color chrome. I listed the in-game names of the colors here. Monk Talk 14:12, December 16, 2016 (UTC)
If you had access to a Trainer, you might come across some vehicles which, even when changing the color USING the trainer, the vehicle's color won't change. This happens on numerous vehicles, including the Boxville (Post OP). This is because the game spreads a vehicle livery over the entire vehicle and thus cannot be resprayed. You can always change the pearl, but some vehicle textures have permanent primary and secondary vehicle colors. For example, the green and red on the Flying Bravo Swift cannot be changed, and the file claims that underneath this livery it is simply colored white. The Boxville Post OP is colored dark brown underneath its livery, removing the livery shows that. Monk Talk 14:12, December 16, 2016 (UTC)

Regarding the Ruiner 2000

Hello Monk, I have a question regarding the Ruiner 2000: is it considered a Personal Vehicle or Pegasus vehicle?

TAlim 1994 - Konan T-A Lim 林道安 (talk | contributions) 08:23, December 16, 2016 (UTC)

It's a personal vehicle, but it can't be sold, it's unique; when you purchase this vehicle, it goes into underground storage if you own a warehouse, not sure where it goes if you don't own a warehouse though, as the Phantom Wedge, Wastelander, etc, work the same, and they obviously don't go into a normal garage if you don't own a warehouse. Monk Talk 14:12, December 16, 2016 (UTC)
I see. Well, forgive my improper English, but I have got to get me one of those! The Ruiner 2000 is probably the most appealing vehicle that I have seen in quite a while, being both aesthetically pleasing and functionally useful. By the way, with regards to my error on the Warstock Cache & Carry article with regards to the Ramp Buggy, I realized the mistake, and I was about to fix it myself when you did, but thank you anyway for correcting it.

Hi, I'm not really sure if this is where I should be posting to contact you - if not please direct me to where I can properly do this. Anyway, the trivia I added to both "Elegy Retro Custom" and "Ambulance" have both been removed and I'm unsure why. If you need any sort of evidence to prove the legitimacy of the trivia, please let me know. Thank you.

Also, the first time I tried to leave this message here, it apparently got attatched to the post above this. This was accidental, and I've since edited it out. I'm in no way making any attempts at spaming, and I'm sorry for causing any sort of trouble. SnipperDoodle (talk) 11:26, December 21, 2016 (UTC)

I know this is unrelated, but I was watching a Rockstar Logic episode on YT. It had some interesting things, but what makes sense to be in a trivia is how one of the new cars has no passenger door handle. https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=HKHlKYrO8lY MHM (talk) 17:03, December 21, 2016 (UTC)
I removed the trivia because it was absolutely not trivial. It was definitely, definitely a coincidence. And coincidences that seem trivial are indeed not trivial. The Ambulance and Elegy Retro Custom have no relation whatsoever, and any shared references are, as stated, coincidental. Also, please don't worry about spamming, etc, you made a mistake and I'm fine by that :) @KingMyth that trivia notation has already been listed on the page. Monk Talk 17:44, December 21, 2016 (UTC)
Hmm, I see the issue with the ambulance, however it seems hard to believe that it'd be a coincidence since both numbers follow the same pattern: Engine - Car. For example, "RB26-32R", or "4AG-86". It's not really a relation to the Elegy Retro Custom, but more to the actual cars referenced. If it's a coincidence then it's the craziest one I've ever seen since it's too perfect, haha. Anyway as for the Elegy Retro Custom, don't you think the reference to the number 23 on the Meinmacht livery is trivial? Or that the "LTD" livery references the ADVAN GT-R? Here's why I think so:
https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/Category:Number_23_on_Nissan_racing_cars
The number 23 is often used by Nissan on their racecars as wordplay, since "23" pronounced in Japanese is "Ni-San".
http://imgur.com/SewMqq8
Look at the bottom Elegy and compare it to this:
http://img-cdn.jg.jugem.jp/2d4/2860485/20140324_2139363.jpg
The "STP" and "LTD" stickers have similar placement on the cars and exhibit similar colors. There are also other sponsor placements that are similar on both cars. Of course the car needs to be painted red in order for the "LTD" livery to look like the Advan one, but the "Meinmacht" livery also needs to be painted blue in order to look like the Calsonic GT-R.
Whatever you do is up to you, I just thought that you should consider this. Thanks!
SnipperDoodle (talk) 19:35, December 21, 2016 (UTC)SnipperDoodle
I have reviewed the references that you have posted, and I believe that the trivia that my colleague removed is indeed relevant, so I have decided to re-add your notes, with some minor changes. Monk, if you disagree with my decision, please feel free to discuss the matter with me.

I must say, after looking through it properly, the trivia is indeed very interesting, so thank you for bringing it to the wiki, thank you for consulting me about my revert, and thank you, Konan, for reinstating it :) I apologise I reverted it in the first place - I haven't been entirely focused here lately, so I probably didn't look at the links either.

PC specs

I'm pretty sure my PC can run at minimum specs for GTA V, but apparently, no matter what settings, constant texture loads and stutters remain prevalent even at the lowest settings. And no, I don't have ANY mods on GTA V because R* can permaban you even if you don't use it for GTA Online. And another no, I don't have a supercomputer-grade PC to run the game or any other games that require a ridiculous amount of high-end specs. JohnSignature 11:17, January 12, 2017 (UTC)

This is what I mean. I hope you understand that even the best PCs are not immune to these kinds of issues. JohnSignature 02:38, January 13, 2017 (UTC)
I believe that that issue happened to me a small number of times a long time ago on both the Xbox 360 and Xbox One when I was doing missions for Lester. Unless I am mistaken, it is due to a delayed loading of high-resolution textures, instead showing the low-resolution LOD textures which are only meant to be used when the player is very far away from the location. I do not know whether it is more common on the PC version of Grand Theft Auto V, as I have yet to try playing the game on that console, but I do eventually intend to transfer my Grand Theft Auto Online character to the PC version of the game when I am satisfied with my character progression on the Xbox One (one of my Xbox Live friends has the game on Steam, so I can play it by sharing his Steam game library), and I will let you know if I ever experience such issues on maximum graphics, as I own a high-end PC.
TAlim 1994 - Konan T-A Lim 林道安 (talk | contributions) 09:56, January 16, 2017 (UTC)
Sure thing. And I never had that issue on the PS3, so the PC version is all too common with the aforementioned issues I explained. Even other high-end games I played on PC (e.g. Assetto Corsa, DiRT Rally, Sleeping Dogs: Definitive Edition) didn't had severe issues like the one I showed you from GTA V.

Right, I think I've sorted it now. Basically, at first, it seemed to be obvious they were referring to the custom counterparts, but since the new releases, everything has been messed up, so I've done my best to go by with this poor consistency by R*; I've added the quotes of all the Benny's cars to the Custom/Upgrade vehicles - to sort out the standard counterparts, I've removed any additional bennys quotes if the page already has a SSASA or LM quote - we only really need 1 quote per vehicle page header.

Vehicle Cargo

I'm going to flesh out the detail - list all possible spawn points for each of the theft types and detail the NPC opponents a bit more, going to list & link all the delivery locations for the 3 types of exports. That sort of thing. Not sure why the mission detail needs to be in triplicate on the mission page, the Ad-Hawk Autos page and the Vehicle Warehouses pages. Smurfy: illuminate - communicate - spectate

  • Anything that is seen on Ad-Hawk Autos should be listed on Ad-Hawk Autos
    • The websites are separate, and the name being in common does not denote for a page merge. Merging the pages regarding two entirely separate forms of missions would be complicated and would ruin the article.
  • Anything that is encountered, is an objective, or can be seen/done in Vehicle Cargo missions must be listed on Vehicle Cargo page.
  • Anything that is seen/done in Vehicle Warehouses is to be listed on Vehicle Warehouse page.
Honestly, I really don't see the problem in having separate sections seemingly duplicated on other pages. Main templates can be used for larger written sections (mission walkthroughs all should point towards Vehicle Cargo). Because Ad-Hawk deals with the exporting and containment of vehicles, it's not unusual to list the images of vehicles, the collections of vehicles, and a Main link to exporting vehicles on the page.
Some of the lists, particularly the list of unknown locations, can be extracted from the files, as I'm already working on. Monk Talk 14:53, February 2, 2017 (UTC)
Yeah, I'm not 'that' upset by it, despite my tone on the talk page. Just don't like having to replicate work on multiple pages. Point taken on the website/business page. The warehouses page got cleaned up and is better now, it should only be about the locations and link to the activity. Smurfy: illuminate - communicate - spectate 19:59, February 2, 2017 (UTC)
Hey Monk, how did you get the 455 × 256 resolution images of the ad-hawk export vehicles? Also, do you think it is worth using screengrabs of the completed collections in the collections table, rather than galleries of individual vehicles?
Smurfy: illuminate - communicate - spectate 23:46, February 8, 2017 (UTC)
I got the pics from the files. They're awkwardly stretched as they're pre-UV mapped, so I hae to stretch em manually into 16:9 ratio. Regarding collections, I don't really see a point, as it's essentially duping over the indiv pics. So I think constructing our own "image" with the individuals (a less-complex version of what you essentially tried with Lifeinvader profiles, if you wanna put it that way) is both more creative and less duping. :) Monk Talk 11:31, February 9, 2017 (UTC)
Sweet, I assumed they must have been extracted since there was no way I could get anything larger than about half that size "in game" at 1080 and I don't have a 4k screen to test higher res.

(Reset Indent) As for the collections, I was suggesting "instead of", rather than "as well as" the individual images which are just going to be dupes of the vehicles list images already on the page(s). We could manipulate the screengrabs to fake the collections (easy enough), OR wait to complete the collections to grab an authentic unmodified screenshot (like I did with the easy one above) OR do some formatting with the gallery object to make it replicate the webpage (possibly like the Lifeinvader experiment, sure, that's possible). Smurfy: illuminate - communicate - spectate 12:15, February 9, 2017 (UTC)

I think the lifeinvader-style experiment sounds like a better plan tbh mate.
On another note, the photograph-locations that are sent via text: I have them all extracted. Can get them all uploaded. Monk Talk 19:03, February 9, 2017 (UTC)
Yeah that would be good, the screenshot of the phone, while it has the clues and details, doesn't really show the image very well.

Hey Monk, sorry to say that I am resigning from my admin post. Thats it. Thanks to everyone who had helped me during this period. I dont want to disclose the reason but I think you already know it. Anyways thanks for all the things you taught me. --MythHunter 007 Talk 16:15, February 2, 2017 (UTC)

Various questions

Good day Monk, I have a number of questions for you regarding former Staff and Administrator tools.

With regards to former Staff, may I ask what happened to Leon? Did he say anything about why he resigned? I also have another Staff question that I would prefer to ask privately in Chat out of respect for the user involved, so please let me know when you are available to join Chat.

With regards to Administrator tools, you mentioned on the Community Noticeboard that you extensively use the SysOp tools to help maintain the wiki, and as an Administrator I feel that I might need a bit of tutoring to make better use of the SysOp tools, so when we are both free would you mind using TeamViewer to show me how to utilize all the available tools. Also, I recall that you said a while ago that you would show me how your bot works, so please do that as well when you can.

Delete images

Hello! I'm not sure how to delete my 2 images. I need a little help please. It's Dalton GTA Online.jpg & Dalton Hanks, 28.jpg

Link's filename 

I tried to reupload it several times, but the outcome still the same. The filename still written as Export and I can't change it. I need help how to change filename. Thanks before. Clubster (talk) 14:40, February 6, 2017 (UTC)

All you need to do is:
  • Find the video on YouTube
  • Copy the URL
  • Go to Special:Videos -> Add Video
  • Paste the URL
  • Done. If you did it correctly, it will automatically name the video after what it was called on YouTube.
It shouldn't require any renaming. Upload everything again and give me the old-named videos I need to delete.

I am glad to hear that you have decided to return to the Bureaucrat position. However, I would be lying if I did not admit that I am a tad bit disappointed, as I was considering applying for your Bureaucrat position, but since you have undoubtedly been more active than I over the past few weeks, you are probably more qualified for the position at this time. In any case, welcome back! To avoid confusion, I am going to strike through your Community Noticeboard messages regarding your resignation to avoid confusion about whether or not you have resigned.

Styling of character photos

RE: Warning

Might as well clear this shit up, since it seems I've been stirring up a mess.

As for the Premier, I noticed that the description for it mentioned that production started in 2004. I also remembered that the Premier first appeared in GTA: SA, which was released in 2004. I just figured it should have been noted.

As for Sandy Shores, I noted it because I live in Lake Elsinore, as mentioned before. The two towns have the following in common:

  • Both are located in the desert
  • Both are small towns on the shore of a heavily-polluted lake.
  • Both are former resort towns.
  • Both are plagued by meth.
  • Both have motorcycle gangs in the area. (If I'm not mistaken, I believe there is a Hell's Angels clubhouse somewhere along Grand Avenue.)
  • Many of the houses are trailers in both towns.
  • Both towns once had an active serial killer living in the area (Sandy Shores had Merle Abrahams, Lake Elsinore had William Suff.)
  • Both have plenty of urban decay present in the area. (Drive along the aforementioned Grand Avenue sometime, tell me just how many run-down buildings you find. There's even an abandoned military school, for fuck's sake.)

Didn't take me long to connect the dots.

You can just delete all the image uploads from the 3 accounts - I used "upload new version" just to hide the explicit images, the random screenshots I uploaded aren't actually needed (or licensed or named correctly).

GTAForums as we discussed

WikiVandalismFromGTAForumMembers

If you check the history (not sure if you'll need to undelete as Ninja has already removed it), you'll see I put a delete on that one within about a minute of it appearing, yet magically a GTAForums user managed to get a screenshot of it without the delete template. Even with his undo and my redo, there was probably only a couple of minutes when that page didn't have a delete notice on it. Coincidence? I bet not. They are not very subtle are they? I guess we can leave Wildbrick to handle that though? Smurfy: illuminate - communicate - spectate 11:11, February 27, 2017 (UTC)

I might be wrong in saying that WildBrick a staff member there? (don't quote me on that). If he is, I think we need to let him know about this so this can be sorted out. Monk Talk 14:23, February 27, 2017 (UTC)
Sorry have been busy at work all day today, yes, that's the reason I mentioned Wild. Probably should have posted to him but it was an ongoing discussion we had been having. Incidentally, the page was actually up for quite a few hours, but I'm certain there would have been 2 periods of a minute or less that it didn't have my delete template on it. Wild has stepped in and UT has even agreed with my suspicions. Their moral high ground gets rapidly eroded when it's them doing the pissing on it. Smurfy: illuminate - communicate - spectate 04:26, February 28, 2017 (UTC)
He came back and made the page again (with no actual content this time though). I'm sure it will make no difference but you should probably block that account. Smurfy: illuminate - communicate - spectate 03:51, March 3, 2017 (UTC)

More sockpuppetry

Took care of him. Regarding the first account, it was already blocked prior to that, and after the block expired he continued to insert false info/nonsense, so I think the infinite block was fine.
Ultimate94ninja talk · contribs 11:04, February 28, 2017 (UTC)
I must disagree. A number of the user's edits (such as this and this), while not formatted correctly, appear to be constructive and correct. I believe that the user should be unblocked, given a stern warning about adding unsourced nationality information and creating Sockpuppet accounts, and advice on how to properly format bracketed text in Infoboxes.

Supercar is a description, doesn't mean it's the class it's in. Sure, it's more than obvious, but there's no true source to say it couldn't be in Sports. There's been plenty of past vehicles, some given similar descriptions by R*, that later were added to unexpected classes (Insurgent comes to mind). It's better to just wait till it's released - then we can add them all at once, count them up, makes it easier. Besides, it's literally not in the game yet, "Vehicles in GTA V".

Have my doubts

this user - I don't have the games he's uploading the content for so I can't verify but given that he started out uploading mod content and still isn't licencing any of his uploads (Cam has been doing it for him), I think we need to verify that it's all legit content before he goes too far.

Likely. I might contact Wikia. Monk Talk 16:19, March 15, 2017 (UTC)
I contacted Wikia about this. They replied, and stated it is both likely and incoincidental that the recent increase in account creations began at around the same time they revived an error on the GTA Wikia app. Apparently its likely the account creations are due to the fixes they made. I still don't 100% support this, however, but they also said they're thinking of removing the account creation log from recent changes in an upcoming wikia patch (doesn't solve the problem, only patches over it, but hey ho.) Monk Talk 22:38, March 15, 2017 (UTC)
The one I highlighted is likely just an unsophisticated sockpuppet (see his message on Sam's wall). But I still suspect whatever fix they did actually opened up their user creation process to bot abuse. I haven't looked at any other wikias to see if they are seeing the same.

Reference list format change

Good day Monk, if you are agreeable to the change, could you please make your bot replace all instances of <references/> and <references /> with this template? It will make the reference list text smaller and allow especially long reference lists to easily be sorted into two or three columns. The same format is used on Wikipedia.

All done! Fun fact: only 350 pages out of all 11,000 have actual reference lists. This number really aught to be above 1000. Something needs to be done about references, especially on main pages such as game pages themselves - there isn't enough. Monk Talk 19:19, March 15, 2017 (UTC)
Yes, I see your point. The only problem is that I am not particularly good at finding references on the Internet unless I already have an idea of where to look, but I will see what I can do about sourcing them nonetheless. By the way, could you please respond to my other message? Thank you.
TAlim 1994 - Konan T-A Lim 林道安 (talk | contributions) 14:35, March 16, 2017 (UTC)
Beta Releases are pages that desperately need more sources - beta sources usually include things from screenshots, but also from trailers - looking through game trailers and matching up beta statements on those pages to trailer content (look closely!) is a good way of justifying and citing beta information. I usually include a link to the trailer, a time, and a screenshot. Monk Talk 14:40, March 16, 2017 (UTC)
Thank you for the advice. By the way, there seems to be an issue with the "Reflist" template making the reference list small: for some reason, the reference list text is not changing size and remains the default size. I have analyzed the source code of the template, but it seems to be in order with no errors. I copied the code from the equivalent template on the Harry Potter Wiki, where the template does actually work. Could you please look into the issue when you have the time?
UPDATE: With assistance from Sean, I have corrected the error, which was due to missing CSS code. Thank you anyway.

Update unlocks

I was a bit underwhelmed last night with the lack of content but discovering this has made me a bit happier. The forced multiplayer of the Heists update to unlock content turned me right off the game. I have done them on Playstation but unlocked nothing on PC. Now I can add a Kuruma to my ricer garage!

NB, they have also hinted the Duke o Death in online... 

"Look for even more updates coming to GTA Online in the weeks ahead, including additions to the Creator like new Stunt Race props and the ability to concoct your own Special Vehicle Races for the Rocket Voltic, Ruiner 2000, and Blazer Aqua. Plus crazy new modes like Resurrection and Top Down, as well as a collection of oft-requested classic GTA rides - including one particularly MORBID MUSCLE CAR."

Edit in classic -> source editor, and go to the bottom and remove the category, or use the category section on the right panel in classic editor to remove categories. You should be using classic editor most of the time, as I've noticed that some of your edits in visual editor have been causing formatting errors, which mess up spacing and lists.

Broughy testing isn't as accurate as described

Just read your post about broughy1322 testing methods and the accuracy of his tests. I have have to say I recreated his speed test run and the distance between checkpoint 4 and his finish wasn't 2.81 mile as specifed, in fact it was way further than shown in picture.

All this leads me to believe that whilst nothing will be 100% accurate you should at least be honest and as accurate as you can possibly be.Ghostx81 (talk) 21:31, March 17, 2017 (UTC)

I've always said it; Broughy's method might be solid and a great way to gain speeds, but there are numerous things wrong with it. Two spring to mind, one you already pointed out
  • I'm really unsure how he can be certain these distances are true to what he thinks they are, especially using the creator; placing checkpoints gives LOTS of leeway between values, you can sometimes move a checkpoint a full block and still retain the same distance from the start/the previous checkpoint.
  • How do we know that the time and distance in the game pair up to give a proper result? We're using two different things; a given distance supplied according to the game's measurements system, and then real life time - although it seems stupid, these are two completely different sources, what about in-game time? How do we know these two things are actually usable in finding speeds?
We cannot use inaccurate data for the wiki - it's as simple as that, and given I have run my tests myself, and gained different results, as with many others who attempt to replicate his tests in the exact same manner, its impossible to know what is correct - if something is able to be accurate, it should be repeatable and thus be done by anyone who has followed exactly as he does. Given we cannot do exactly what he does because of the leeway of distances (as already mentioned), its therefore uncertain that his data can be trusted between each vehicle, and the vehicles can consequently not be compared. The only reliable and certain sources of data we now have in the game are the raw file data (which does not completely reflect in-game performance, as drag/driving force/mass/etc come into play, and first person speedometers (again, these speeds are actually wrong and do not reflect actual performance, but its still data that is repeatable, easy to obtain, easy to record, and consistent.

We have to go back

How long has it been? A year? Or two? I don't even know, I wasn't counting. What I know, though, is that we have to go back. This whole "separate name = separate page" thing is not working out. It's a mess. It'd be better to have all vehicle variants documented in one page rather than separate ones, now that I look back on it. If ya wanna get started on that now, just let me know.

Besides that, I quit. Screw this place. I lost interest in it, and there's nothing for me to do here anymore. Gonna let someone else have the rights (maybe that new guy in RfP?) rather than leaving myself hog the spot. I don't edit that much, if at all, anymore so that could be the reason as well.

  • marquis (no idea?) - unseen - may be scripted to always appear near the tugs on the heist crew jobs but unnoticed?
  • buccaneer2 (confirmed, generic pursuit) - Car Meets
  • paradise (no idea?) - Point To Point race bet: always parked at finish
  • elegy2 (no idea?) - Car Meets? Maybe it was supposed to have been used for Race Bet chasers in a FnF livery, would have been better than the Sultan?
  • kuruma (confirmed) - likes spawning with futos - always in any Triad Tail missions as tail target and chasers
  • futo (confirmed) - likes spawning with kurumas - also car meet chasers with Dominators
  • comet2 (seen it somewhere?) - apparently likes spawning with kurumas - unseen, maybe Car Meets?
  • dominator (confirmed, spawns on tug floats) - likes spawning with tug and cargobob - also chaser in Car Meets

Re: Ermm

Ermmm See Tempesta page - If you're going to reference a Lotus influence (which is very much a stretch IMO), reference the right Lotus. Smurfy: illuminate - communicate - spectate 07:20, May 1, 2017 (UTC)

Erm, first of all, I simply reverted edits, and did not add Lotus Elan to the Tempesta page.
Second of all, perhaps you could do a little more research and history check yourself - I added Esprit to the Tempesta page because THAT'S what it's headlights/rear end is based on. It takes little to nothing from the Elan's new concept - The 2013 Elan and Esprit are two completely different concepts - Elan - Esprit. The entire top-rear fascia is from the Esprit. Compare the hood vents, rear window and B pillars. The headlight shape also comes from the Esprit, while the lamps themselves seemingly come from the Elan - in fact quite a lot of the front draws inspiration from the Esprit, especially the hood line in connection with the front bumper. Monk Talk 11:36, May 1, 2017 (UTC)
Perhaps you should be the one that needs to check edits closer. The Elan concept has been on the Tempesta page (replacing the Esprit concept) with no "correction" for months, that is what I was "correcting" on the Pegassi page (in fact removing the Lotus reference as, IMO, it is not a primary design influence as we have ruled the entries on the manufacturer pages should reflect). I had not looked too closely into who changed the Tempesta page to the Elan but checked images of both and could see the minor similarities so did not revert it on the Tempesta page. I see you have now corrected both pages back to the Esprit which I have no problem with, as long as the two pages match. :) Smurfy: illuminate - communicate - spectate 20:51, May 1, 2017 (UTC)

From here you can optionally navigate to the "Source" mode within the editing pane for source code editing - either method is fine, but avoid using the Visual Editor, which automatically loads when clicking "Edit" - Blame Fandom.

Congratulation!

Only just noticed, I've been trying to keep an eye on it for a while and, well, I missed it... Congratulations on reaching 30,000 edits on the GTA Wiki! You're like the second highest editor in the wiki's history and at this rate you'll be number one in no time! I think number 1 is currently (somehow) Cloud. LS11sVaultBoy (Talk) 18:54, May 2, 2017 (UTC)

Completely forgot haha. And yeah, CloudKit's 40k (although he didn't exactly edit, just waste time with links lmao). Although he's blocked. Thanks man. :) Monk Talk 19:08, May 2, 2017 (UTC)

Apologies

I'd like to apologize for my edit to the Humane Raid - Key Codes page. I'm sorry it wasn't good enough, or at least not worded well enough to be deemed worthy to stay on the page. Call me, Mr. Nirvana (talk) 02:47, May 15, 2017 (UTC)

SA doesn't have gxt2. It has gxt :p But no, the trailers don't have names. They are defined as having their own name, but there are no strings in the gxt file. V-michael-trunk-miniV-franklin-trunk-miniV-trevor-trunk-mini 05-15-2017, 11:42:06 (EDT)

RE: Weapon Project

Nothing. It works fine. Why? Is somebody trying to get rid off the idea? Did someone put the wrong code in a parameter of a template? Is there any missing pages over there?

Actually, I would like to know the third one, because I have no idea which pages are still using the old template.

BTW, What competition? I'm not competing with anyone, just being efficient. (Maybe I over-exceeded the original schedule of just GTA IV cars. My bad.)

Fine. You can ask me to stop with this vehicle idea, but first, I need what I need the most. --BodyArmor-GTACW-Android SWAT Cam F VehicleWeapon-GTACW-Android Detonator-GTACW-Android Crate-GTACW-Android 18:54, May 21, 2017 (UTC)

No. I added a delete template to it when he uploaded it but removed it as soon as he used it on his user page. Fan fiction of this nature is still permitted in the user namespacw (unfortunately). Smurfy: illuminate - communicate - spectate 10:36, May 22, 2017 (UTC)

Touchdown Rental Shuttle Bus

Hey Monk, question for the expert: is the Touchdown variant of the Rental Shuttle Bus very rare to find in enhanced version? Does it even spawn at all? I've been trying to find one to get a better image for the wiki but I only find Escalera variants every time I go to the airport. Either I'm really unlucky or the vehicle rarely spawns in enhanced version :) I was wondering if you noticed this as well, and if it's true maybe it should be mentioned in the page. DocVinewood (talk) 15:06, June 2, 2017 (UTC)

Well, good spot man!
This got me really confused. I went as far to spawn loads of them in the game, and nope, nothing. So I went into the files. And guess what? The Touchdown variant, doesn't exist anymore. In the third next-gen patch of the game, Rockstar removed the touchdown livery from its texture files. So, yeah, feel free to note that. Monk Talk 15:39, June 2, 2017 (UTC)
Heh, I suspected something like that. Thanks for checking out so quickly. DocVinewood (talk) 15:49, June 2, 2017 (UTC)
No problem. Since I can tell the game to ignore this patch, I'll get some better pics of it - come to think of it, this explains why I only got the Escalera pics when I did service vehicles. Monk Talk 15:53, June 2, 2017 (UTC)
And for reference, this patch was timestamped on 23/10/2014 12:26:36, so just 1 month before the initial enhanced version release. Monk Talk 15:55, June 2, 2017 (UTC)

RE: Weapon Stats

weapons.meta has weapon infos, that's correct.

And DLC weapons are separated because logic. Or it just makes it easier to manage, I dunno. V-michael-trunk-miniV-franklin-trunk-miniV-trevor-trunk-mini 06-04-2017, 07:20:08 (EDT)

Military Dune Buggy question!

Out of wild curiosity, how come you deleted the photo's I uploaded of the Military Buggy, despite them not being duplicates and being accepted by another mod on the site? 

Not that it annoyed me, just curious is all. GTADaryl (talk) 22:27, June 8, 2017 (UTC) Daryl D. 

Hey there. I deleted them because they were poorly named - describing the picture is not the sole way to name a file. The policy shows how files should be named. Some of your pictures were duplicates, through batch. Thanks. Monk Talk 22:35, June 8, 2017 (UTC)
Monk, as per Daryl's talk page, I was working through with him to get his images compliant. Only 1 (the shot inside the rear of the MOC) was a duplicate. After he licenced them I was going to rename them. I had to go to sleep though. I was a bit annoyed this morning to find them deleted.
Unfortunately Daryl, you did muck up the licencing instructions, and added the licence template to the article, not your image. Smurfy: illuminate - communicate - spectate 22:38, June 8, 2017 (UTC)
Yeah, apologies. I was going to rename them but was in a rush, came back to read the talk pages, was about to restore the files by which time one had been reuploaed. Sorry about that. Monk Talk 22:58, June 8, 2017 (UTC)
I'll make sure to keep all of this in mind if I have other photo's to upload. I may take some for uploading once the update drops. If another user doesn't beat me to it, of course. Sorry about mucking it up though. I wasn't entirely sure where it went, but i'll look around for the instructions again. - EDIT: I uploaded another photo to the Military Dune Buggy page, I think I got the licencing stuff correct this time? GTADaryl (talk) 21:26, June 9, 2017 (UTC) 
You still need to get the naming right - including the gametitle "GTAO" in the picture is essential, and also, images of modified vehicles are not accepted as per the Vehicle MOS. Thanks. Monk Talk 12:01, June 15, 2017 (UTC)

OpenIV will still function though, right? Even after future GTAO updates? Monk Talk 12:01, June 15, 2017 (UTC)
Don't think it will, unfortunately. Take-Two catches anyone using Open IV, or any other mod-related programs, and you can say good-bye to your progress in GTA Online as they will ban their consumers on sight for using any modded programs, even for single player use. The dark age of GTA has begun. JohnSignature 17:56, June 15, 2017 (UTC)
It still functions, albeit with a "risk" that lawyers will come to your door and take you to court (seriously, who believes in this crap). Either way, this is really sad news. I hope OpenIV can at least disable the "Edit" mode feature and leave it at that, so the wiki still gets the information we need. Monk Talk 19:25, June 15, 2017 (UTC)
Yep. I'd still play GTA Online, but I sure as hell am not letting Take-Two force me to buy Shark Cards. Also, GTA V's review on PC is getting tanked hard. JohnSignature 20:01, June 15, 2017 (UTC)

Sock Block

You were right the first time. jr obv a puppet of Joe. Smurfy: illuminate - communicate - spectate 21:10, June 14, 2017 (UTC)

What's made you change your mind about the date trivia? Doesn't alter the fact that the user is using a sockpuppet account to bypass the ban for removing it, but if you are going to accept that the edit "war" was valid, then is CupOfMorningJoe's block invalid now too? Smurfy: illuminate - communicate - spectate 21:16, June 14, 2017 (UTC)
Idk fella. I never changed my mind, just gave in. Same reason with the block. He contacted me offsite telling me he wasn't a sock and I just gave in again. I don't feel I'm as good at my job as I used to be anymore, considering resignation again. (for real this time) Monk Talk 12:01, June 15, 2017 (UTC)

Gunrunning Vehicles

Hello Monk, just wanted to tell you that I added the vehicles to their manufactures. Try seeing my past contributions. So just asking if I can add new vehicles to their manufactures. Do you think it's okay? JEEP-CHEROKEE (talk) 06:59, June 15, 2017 (UTC)

Good good. Make sure they comform the standards of other vehicles on the manufacturing list (i.e, with the notes section dedicated to the DLC they were added in (gunrunning), and the caption, infobox mage, are all used correctly. Thanks. Monk Talk 12:01, June 15, 2017 (UTC)

Videos for Gunrunning Missions

Is it also okay if I can add videos for all gunrunning missions and stuff? JEEP-CHEROKEE (talk) 07:34, June 15, 2017 (UTC)

As long as they are by GTASeriesVideos, that's fine. Monk Talk 12:01, June 15, 2017 (UTC)

RE: Airport Bus

Yeah, it still exists. I'll try to get one eventually but I still have other images to upload so it won't be soon. Vehicle images are your speciality, you probably could get better ones and faster, in any case (or Wildbrick) :p DocVinewood (talk) 09:43, June 15, 2017 (UTC)

RE:

Wait. What? Is that real?

Alright. If you said that, I guess I can do that, but there are still a few missing ones from there (between Haloween and Gunrunning). Do I have to store the other files, including those from IV? --BodyArmor-GTACW-Android SWAT Cam F VehicleWeapon-GTACW-Android Detonator-GTACW-Android Crate-GTACW-Android 21:05, June 15, 2017 (UTC)

Alright. That looks kinda easy.

Yeah, NP, that user always needs grammar fixes. I did some when I restored it but am sick at the moment so may have missed some. Smurfy: illuminate - communicate - spectate 21:20, June 15, 2017 (UTC)

Range

Man. I almost forgot that, before continuing to the rest of the weapons, what's the correct measurement of range? Values doesn't seem to have any meaning if they don't have either "meters" or "feet" on it (like how vehicle speed is appropiately measured in km/h and mph) and that would cause some confusion. I assume file data follows the metric system, right? --BodyArmor-GTACW-Android SWAT Cam F VehicleWeapon-GTACW-Android Detonator-GTACW-Android Crate-GTACW-Android 00:29, June 16, 2017 (UTC)

BTW, I've left a discussion here if the MK II weapons should be separated. --BodyArmor-GTACW-Android SWAT Cam F VehicleWeapon-GTACW-Android Detonator-GTACW-Android Crate-GTACW-Android 01:02, June 16, 2017 (UTC)
Given the fact the files are almost all in metric, I'd expect it was meters. Monk Talk 12:31, June 18, 2017 (UTC)

Hi admin, I have a problem need you help: The mission Los Desperados' script has an incorrect: Sunny is the one says "gonna cut those cacos" not Hazer. You can view it and see, Hazer does not speaks until shouts with others "Hasta la muerte!". May you edit this script?

NguyenAnhLam (talk) 13:16, June 18, 2017 (UTC)

Flags

Well, assuming weapons like the APC Cannon and SAM turrets will have separated assets for the ammos and they also use their own flags for both "Ammo" and "Projectile", it'd be rather confusing to put these together, unless it is still able to sort these appropiately, aside from the fact it could "separate" vehicle flags from weapon flags. At least this is what I think. --BodyArmor-GTACW-Android SWAT Cam F VehicleWeapon-GTACW-Android Detonator-GTACW-Android Crate-GTACW-Android 18:46, June 20, 2017 (UTC)

It just looks odd. Having "TBOGT", "GTA Online", and then "Ammo" for example. That's why I initially added centered "APC", "Missile" and "Projectile" sections within the GTA Online expand. Monk Talk 18:59, June 20, 2017 (UTC)
It's because I was unaware of the change you made (and partially because the weapon data for the GTA Online APC is incomplete). My bad :P --BodyArmor-GTACW-Android SWAT Cam F VehicleWeapon-GTACW-Android Detonator-GTACW-Android Crate-GTACW-Android 19:05, June 20, 2017 (UTC)
