Monday Motor Mayhem Mischief and Merriment
Monday Motor Mayhem, Mischief, and Merriment (M5)
A racing and driving focused weekly playlist that is in the evening EU time.
May have the occasional combat or adversary job, but again vehicle focused. 
While it may bear some striking similarities to TNT, and may even feature some of the same events, it most decidedly isn't TNT. It doesn't happen on Thursday.
A chance to enjoy the whole range of vehicles in the game, not just the best 5% of them.

TGIF
Let's bring back TGIF. Well kind of ...
It shall be called:
T(he) G(r)I(nd) F(riday).
A lot of us, probably most, don't really play this game daily for hours, like we used to, yet we still need those millions to buy the next car for Sunday racing or all the new clothing with the next update ...

Let's open a beer (or two, or three, ... who's counting anyway 😒), sit back on a Friday night and make some money together.

Did yor bunker fill up during weekly playlist?

Have you got another shipment of Coke/Meth to distribute, but you don't really feel like flying Dodos for 25-30 minutes around the map by yourself?

Have you accidentally completed a car collection that you want to get rid of?

Have you grinded solo collecting crates during the week and filled a warehouse perhaps?

Do you just want to try some non-solo missions that are perhaps even double $ this week?

Everything goes, as long as it makes good money, can't be done solo (or is much easier/faster with a group) and is just easier, faster or even pays more with more players in the lobby.

When?

Well, Friday night, duh. It starts as soon as one of us opens an empty public lobby and announces it in the shoutbox. Everyone else just joins on that player or asks for an invite in the shoutbox. It ends in the early morning hours Pacific times, when 2 Bros pass out from too much beer/whiskey. But generally, let's aim for the majority of sales/jobs to happen during the 20:00-22:00 UTC window for euro folks and ??-?? for US folks.

Let's make it a reoccuring weekly thing.

Who?

Crew and well behaved friends welcome.

Host?

I can volunteer to be an unofficial host (if needed), but it's mostly a freeroam lobby event, come and go as you please type of event.

How?

During the week, drop your name down if you plan to attend, write down what will you need help with and when do you plan to join, so that we can go through the business side of the things first, by grouping ourselves into groups of 3-4 depending on the tasks. Once we're done with the sales, we can move on to double $ jobs or whatever.

 

Anything else I'm forgetting?

Thoughts, comments, suggestions, interested? ...

Domestic Battery 7th Anniversary
Domestic Battery 7th Anniversary
It's the crew's 7th anniversary on 28th Jan and this year, instead of a weekend-long marathon of events, the plan is to host our regular weekly events at the same time as usual, but also invite friends and ex-members to come and join us and base the playlists around the greatest XDBX creations throughout the years. There's plenty of room for some additional events as well if volunteers want to host something extra.

The anniversary week will run from Mon 25th to Sun 31st Jan.

Our scheduled events (times in UTC/GMT) and hosts are

Mon 25th 21:00 - M5 @Crawford1872 and @The_Lady_A


Tues 26th -


Wed  27th 20:30 or 21:00 - WoW @djw180 – Whacky Races

probably the 20:30 start, Vans already confirmed interest in joining us



Thu 28th  -


Fri 29th - TGIF @zmurko

but room for an event at any time if anyone wants to host something special that Friday night



Sat 30th – 21:00 2 Bros @omarcomin71 and @pete_95973


Sun 31st – 21:00 SRL @zmurko


Could all hosts please

confirm they will be hosting that week


are happy for non crew, as explained above, to be invited


start having a think about what sort of XDBX jobs to base the playlist around

aiming for 30 player jobs



There is plenty of room for other one off events, especially at different times, so anyone who wants, please do volunteer when there is a free time.

The Random Touchpad
The Random Touchpad
Come and join us on Wednesday the 13th of January at 20:00 UK Time for the Random Touchpad! Just turn up to the parking lot of the San An Taqueria Mexican Restaurant north of Fridgit Cold Storage in La Mesa in a stock or close to stock looking vehicle. No custom rims!

You might have seen it before, or might have never seen if before. But GTA has a random car selector! And we will be using it!


We will use this function with customs off in random cars so we wont have half the field driving stock cars and the other customs.

Before each race a random class will be selected in which we use the random function. Only press it ONCE! No cheating using it multiple times to get a better car or even selecting a car yourself! This is just for a bit of fun and you might be shafted by the game but its all in good fun. 

We will determine who has the best taste in cars before we start a playlist to determine who is the winner of the Random Touchpad!

Post below to get involved!

Can't Stop the Music [RSC Film Club 26]
Oh boy, we're starting 2021 off with a doozy.  The winning, randomly drawn film for January is @Sinister's pick of Can't Stop the Music.  

Produced by Allan Carr, who had a small success with another musical a few years earlier, you may have heard of it - Grease, and directed by Nancy Walker, her only feature film directing credit, Can't Stop the Music is a fictional biopic of The Village People starring the group as themselves alongside a pre-Police Academy Steve Guttenberg and a pre-transition Caitlin Jenner.  This is a film I have seen way more than it deserves, I could write my review now without re-watching it, so believe me when I tell you that it is bad.  This is a very bad film.  Everything about it is bad.  The acting is awful, the sets look cheap, the direction is uninspired - especially for a musical, some of the songs are good but the majority of them are cheesy disco pap, the story is nonsensical and often boring, and I love it all.  This is a "so-bad-it's-good film in the same legendary league as The Room, Hercules in New York and Troll 2.  

So my advice is to grab a few beers, a bottle of wine or whiskey, or whatever it is you use to mess with your brain and get ready for some absolute garbage of the highest order.  This is a film you won't forget once you've seen it, even though you may want to.  I really can't wait for the reviews on this one!

young man, there's no need to feel down

RSC Film Club is a chance to watch and discuss films, maybe your favourites, maybe something you’ve never heard of before, with all your favourite crew mates.

We will be watching one film per month, hopefully giving everyone a chance to watch the film and to have a decent discussion about it before moving on to the next one.

1979 Rallye De Paleto January 6th 20:30
The Inaugural Rally De Paleto will be held this Wednesday 6th January.
Where is it?
Paleto Bay is a quaint little town in the North of Blaine County, San Andreas.  It's Northwest of Paleto Forest and at the foot of Mount Chiliad.  It's mixture of great shops and amusements as well as the Procopio Beach making it a great place to visit for the whole family. 

What is it?


Set over 3 gruelling stages totalling more than 35miles the Rally De Paleto promises to break cars as well as spirits as it winds through the Paleto Forest, Chiliad Mountain State Wilderness, Raton Canyon, Cassidy Creek, the Alamo Sea, Mount Josiah and the Grand Señora Desert. 

It's a multiclass event with cars and drivers from all over the country taking part and racing on the same course at the same time.  Cars will be released in pairs at 30 second intervals with the slower cars at the beginning through to the faster cars near the end meaning everyone will converge near the finishing line in the heart of Paleto Bay for an epic finish of each stage.

Who is in it?



Although there will be over 50 entries in total we'll be closely following 15 of the entrants, each one in a different type of car.

Here are some of the favourites:

The first to start:
Closely followed by: @Spinnaker1981


Than amongst the middle of the pack:

@Pauliewill be driving for:


And then the last cars leave to chase the rest down including the debut of:

Credit to https://gta.fandom.com/wiki/Main_Page

for the logos and maps.

THE SMALL PRINT

We're limited to 16 players as it's a transform race to allow us to race multiple classes.

We'll have 15 racers each in a different type of car and one who is flying round in a helicopter filming and making people nervous.

Full instructions and a very brief tutorial will be given on the night before we start.  

We'll be racing non contact as the roads are tight, twisty and fairly unforgiving as it is.

So don a classic racing suit and an open face helmet  (it's 1979 after all) then...

Pick a race number and a livery/sponsor from the Entry List above and comment to enter.

 

COMPETITORS:  Between each pairing is a gap of 30 seconds at the start until the final 3 cars.  The stages have been timed in roughly in each car meaning the faster cars should be catching the slower cars by the end.

Crew Challenge 226 – Thank Gordo It's Christmas.
⛄ Crew Challenge 226 – Thank Gordo It's Christmas 🎅
Time for the now traditional holiday challenge, a solo time trial where you do two laps, one in normal weather and one in the snow that is expected to hit LS in the next few days. Add up your fastest snow and non-snow laps.

 

I don't know yet what the pattern will be for the weather but the challenge will end at some point in the New Year once we have had enough non-snow days to make use of. So you should have a couple of days before the snow arrives to get some laps in now. Then the snow may stay till after New Year or there may be a non-snow gap in between.

It's in custom sports classics. You can use different cars for snow and non-snow.

 

The track is Gordodrome 2019

 

Usual rules

Fastest lap


One lap in snow, one lap in non-snow


Any number of laps / attempts


Non-contact if racing with others


No run ups


Sports Classics, different cars allowed for snow and non-snow

Ends – TBC in 2021

Home Alone [RSC Film Club 24]
It's time to get festive at the film club with a double bill of Christmassy goodness.  First up, our traditional Christmas film, nominated by @Squirrel, the film that made Macaulay Culkin a superstar, Home Alone.

 
Written by the king of 80s teen comedy, John Hughes (The Breakfast Club, Ferris Bueller's Day Off) and directed by Chris Columbus (Mrs. Doubtfire, the first two Harry Potter films) Home Alone stars Culkin as Kevin, an 8 year old who is inadvertently left home alone when his family fly off to France for the holidays.  Not only does he have to take responsibility for himself for the first time in his life, he also has to protect his home from opportunistic thieves The Wet Bandits (Joe Pesci and Daniel Stern).  With a supporting cast that also includes Catherine O'Hara and John Candy, this is a classic Christmas comedy that I'm sure we've all seen before, but won't mind revisiting.  It's been a couple of decades since I've seen it, and can't wait to take another trip to the McCallister home.  Just watch your step.

keep the change you filthy animal

XDBX & VANS Rolling Around In Snow
We're looking at having a fun night of silly contact racing in the snow together with VANS on Wednesday, December 30th (fingers crossed for there to actually be snow in LS that day).

Time: 20:30 UTC

Host: me

Races: 10 jobs that have either the actual in-game snow present or modded snow/ice surface, each crew picks 5 races for the event (any classes, any vehicles)

Rules: It's going to be more-or-less M5-dirty, but no deliberate ploughing (unless we agree otherwise during the event)

 

Is it OK with you if the Wednesday evening of the 30th is used for this, @djw180?

 

(Anyone interested in joining can start thinking whether they want to see any specific races in the snow at this event and nominate some.)

Brazil [RSC Film Club 25]
And now for the alternative Christmas film selection, chosen by @djw180 and seconded by myself, the classic Terry Gilliam surreal satire, Brazil.


Brazil stars Jonathan Pryce (Pirates of the Caribbean, The Two Popes) as Sam Lowry, an office drone for the Ministry of Information who has dreams of flying and a beautiful woman.  One day a simple clerical error starts a chain of events that shakes up his world and introduces him to a memorable cast of characters as he tries to fight the system.  This film has an amazing supporting cast including Ian Holm, Bob Hoskins, Jim Broadbent, Gilliam's Monty Python chum Michael Palin and Robert De Niro as the most badass heating repair man in film history.  This is a bizarre dystopic nightmare that is as funny as it is unsettling (especially the ending) and could have only come from the mind of Terry Gilliam, and is still, in my opinion, his best film by a long shot.  

Quick note:  there are a few versions of this film, including an awful 90 minute cut.  For the best experience, and the one that Gilliam personally recommends, you'll be wanting the 142 minute cut.

Sorry, I'm a bit of a stickler for paperwork. Where would we be if we didn't follow the correct procedures?

Aslad’s Off Road Adventure Pt4
Come and join the Us for some off road fun in the snow for Aslad’s Off-Road Adventure Pt4!
Vehicles:
Bring whatever car you wish, though something with reasonable ground clearance is highly advised. Also, in keeping with the spirit of this event, I would ask that you bring something that doesn't have godly performance as it ruins the challenging aspect of this event. Bikes, weaponised, boosted & flying vehicles are not allowed. 

How it works:

The event will kick off with a "best car" vote so make sure to make yours as offroady or aesthetic as you can! 

We will then set off on a pre-scouted route along the varied and tricky terrain of the east coast of SA. If you get completely stuck or end up in the sea, you may not respawn your vehicle and must ride with someone else until we hit the main checkpoints chosen by myself (I will make you aware when we reach these spots). At these checkpoints, respawning and/or repairing your vehicle is allowed. We will finish at the northernmost tip of the island, and, if time permits, will do a final climb to the top of Mount Chiliad. 

Saturday 20:00 UK time, be there or be a leafy meal that most sane people try and dodge!
