Grand Theft Auto Online patch fixes vanishing vehicles

Are you still keenly awaiting new Grand Theft Auto Online patches? If you've been losing your cars or mods, quite probably. Rockstar has rolled out another patch for Grand Theft Auto V's multiplayer mode, now live on both Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3, to fix that problem and several others, including black screens and long load times.

After GTA Online launched in an awfully wonky state, which saw some players' characters entirely lost, Rockstar is planning to give everyone $500,000 of in-game cash. That lump's being split into two deposits, the first of which goes out this week.

Here's the big list of changes in this latest patch:

  • Fixes numerous issues that were causing vehicle loss and/or loss of vehicle mods

  • Fixes an issue where the incorrect car is replaced when choosing to replace a car in a full garage

  • Fixes an exploit allowing players to sell the same vehicle multiple times

  • Fixes an issue that caused personal vehicles to be duplicated

  • Fixes an issue where some players were unable to pay utility bills on an owned apartment or house

  • Fixes an issue where players were not getting Crew invites in-game

  • Fixes an issue where the starting point for the tutorial race was not appearing

  • Fixes issues with joining Jobs from within a player-owned garage

  • Fixes issues with players getting stuck while using playlists

  • Fixes additional issues causing black screens, long load times, and players getting stuck in the sky cam

  • Adds details in the UI to clarify that characters created while Rockstar cloud is unavailable are temporary (non-saved)

  • Adds changes to the character creator to make better-looking default characters with the “random” option

  • Players now only lose a maximum of 500 GTA$ upon death in Freemode
