  3. What has Rockstar done to the tuner update?

I’ve gotten online for the last 3 days and I’m still working on the same Simeon export list. I’ve gone days without finding any of the Simeon export cars. I found 5 a couple days ago, but that’s extremely rare for me.

I’ve only gotten XP for going to the car meet the first day. I haven’t gotten any yesterday, or today. This happens quite often.

The cars to mod at the Auto Shop for the last couple of weeks, have almost all been $20,000 payouts. I got about 10 $20,000, 2 $25,000, and just got a $30,000. Nothing more.

Has R* decided they aren’t making enough money back from this update that they have to get cheap on the daily payouts?

I’ve got all of the cars, so I don’t need to do the challenges, and I got tired of the same 14 races a long time ago.

I’m not surprised this board is so quiet.

Okay, by "Simeon export list", are you referring to the Exotic Exports list on the chalkboard in your auto shop? I hope so, because that's the assumption I'm going to work under based on your next remark...

I’ve only gotten XP for going to the car meet the first day. I haven’t gotten any yesterday, or today. This happens quite often.
Right, that's because the car meet dailies and the exotic exports list are intertwined. They're both supposed to refresh daily-- at precisely the same time. So, if you should notice that your Exports list hasn't refreshed the next day as it should have, then you can therefore be certain that the car meet dailies won't have refreshed either and you needn't bother heading there as you won't get any XP.

There are certain circumstances that cause this, and at one point I believe I worked out what those circumstances were and was therefore able to prevent it from happening to me. But, um... thing is, I haven't played the game in months now, and for the life of me, I can't remember what those circumstances were.

I know that isn't especially helpful, but I can at least assure you that this isn't a new development.

Edit: Don't hold me to this because I'm not sure if I'm remembering correctly, but I think that if you already have your character logged into the game at the time that the exports/tuner dailies are supposed to reset, then they won't reset for you. Not on that character anyway.

As for what time that is, again, I'm going from what may or may not be an accurate memory, but I believe that the reset occurs six, possibly seven hours after the normal daily objectives reset. You'd have to work out when that would be in your time zone.
Don't look at my sig.

Yeah, I've had days where I wasn't getting any Meet XP, and did notice the Export list didn't update for almost a week the last time I seriously played. I also didn't realize there was a limit of XP you could get in one day. It kinda sucks because there's no other reason to play, especially with Arena Wars seemingly broken for good and no way to grind AP unless you're extremely lucky.

When the tuner update came out it seemed like the new day started at midnight. Then it seemed like they changed it to 24 hours from your last visit like the casino wheel. Now it just seems random.

Considering how few opportunities there are to earn xp in the update messing this up really hampers your ability to earn items.
I'm not even winded.

It's 24 hours now like the lucky wheel yeah, for instance if you have to place 1st in a race 5 days in a row for the prize ride challenge and you do it at 11:30pm it won't register another 1st place on the prize ride counter until after 11:30pm the next day

Great news! Auto Shop activities like exotic car exports and Sheneesha’s contract jobs now give Car Meet XP.

The way it should have been from the start. Too bad the export cars rarely spawn for me and I’m not that interested in her contracts.

I’m only one rank away from the last thing I care about unlocking, but good for the rest of you that still need XP.
