I couldn't find any info on this so I recorded what happened about an hour ago. No access to police cruisers (none) because they were personal vehicles. This is the first time I saw this, let me know your thoughts.
Rather than getting angry we could look at the possibilities. Maybe this is to do with the next update and maybe, just maybe, this is a sign that we may be able to store lilies vehicles etc in special garages after it comes.
I think this is more likely what is going on but knowing rockstar, it could just be someone messed up the permissions on these vehicles but od like to think that Eben if this is the case, the fact that they show as personal vehicles is a good sign for what may be to come.
Anyone checked an armoured bank truck? I was half afk yesterday, in a car stopped across a crossroads/intersection... as you do. Anyway, just as i came back a cola truck t-boned me and flipped me over. When i righted the car i noticed it must have spooked an armoured truck, and the guards were out shooting at me.
Thought it would be rude not to, so mowed them down and tried to nip off with the truck. I couldn't get in, didn't notice if it said anything about personal vehicles, it was just the try the door, but no access. Cops had arrived so i left it. Don't know if there's any connection.
It is a side effect to stopping the car duping. It basically denies access to cars that carry the same license plate as another one in the session. Apparently Emergency vehicles carry the same plate. It doesn't affect custom plates by the way, these are just visually different but carry the original plate in the coding. Not being able to enter armored trucks, Gruppe Sechs vans, was always the case when they are part of somebody else's resupply mission. Same goes for Import/Export cars, they appear in the game before the player that's supposed to steal it arrives, but in that situation they are impossible to enter/steal or destroy.
Last night I did playing on old gen of gta 5 and I did get in police car & drive around lol. Thats just weird old gen and new gen are different. Like my modded outfit with cop belt on it wiped on new gen, police outfit & Trashman outfit blacklist. I did check old gen and all my modded outfit with cop belt on it still there. Invisible part still stick in freemode on old gen but not new gen. Thats just very weird to me.
The sprunk redbull plane was locked as a personal vehicle last night in sandy shores as well. Just ran to the buzzard and blew up the plane. I own one of those but I really like just stealing those and stuntin around.
Obviously an unintended side effect of dupe detection.
