    theres a million youtube videos on this topic however i'll post the method to draw attention to this. if you want to do CEO/ MC work in a lobby by yourself its easy to get one.

    go to creator and create a race. make the start of the race where you would like to spawn. when creating a race the minimum distance is .63 of a mile. r* buggs out and extends the race to 1+ mile. to fix this publish the race then edit it back to .63 and save the race
    after the race is created and edited to taste add the singular race to a playlist.
    when you want a private public lobby start the playlist with your race with or without the ppl you want in your lobby. finish the race and restart the playlist.
    after the playlist restarts and your race is at the screen to invite more players, exit the race and abandon the playlist.

    you will spawn in a lobby by yourself or with the participants of the race. eventually random players will join. kill them, vote them out, or start a new private lobby if you wish to continue to work alone.

    this was not intended by the programmers but i dont think this is a nefarious method. its pretty much public knowledge for anyone who is running Ceo Mc work trying to get rich. everyone knows what happens when youre in a full lobby and try any type of work.

    Nice one Hellsmercenary.

    I've actually made a video on the very same thing. This method is great for xbox one & I believe other platforms too.

    The PS4 has had another method involving changing the system time but the rest of us couldn't do it.

    I only just remembered to update this. This method was patched with the Gunrunning update. However you can still get it to work with a friend's help.

    As before you choose to restart the playlist. After the countdown and the winning screen you will come down from the clouds. At this moment you must invite a friend to join you. Your character, when he comes down from the clouds will momentarily stand in a public of 1. This is literally a couple of seconds before the next race lobby loads.

    If your friend accepts the invite from that moment, he can join your race lobby and back out into a session of just he & you. When you back out you'll leave him alone in a public of one. Rejoin your friend after you land in a regular public session.

    I'll try that and see if it works. The time changing method doesn't work on ps4 anymore since the gunrunner update because rockstar are trolling bastards. Does this method work on ps4 also?

    In the past ps4 could simply lower their mtu settings on thier router and lag into their own lobby. Xb1 you can still use a lag switch but I haven't put enough burden on my routers/switches to lag into my own session. Now I just kill ppl until they all leave

    I could always give that a go. Unfortunately the killing until they leave option wont work for me as too many people join too quickly. At one point, a friend of mine did something like the settings thing you said about so that me and 6 of my crew mates could have an empty public lobby and it worked but then people started rapidly joining. Even kicking them one by one wasn't enough due to the kick cool down and in about the minute, us lot only took up about half of the lobby. Another minute and lobby maxed out.

    The nice thing about a lag switch is just a bunch of bandwidth hogs running in parallel to slow your network. For example p2p file sharing that congest your network. so if the lag switch is balanced right , when ppl come in just start running your bandwidth hogs and lag out again. turn it off and invite your party

    I tried that once. First few attempts had no effect then as I flooded more data it signed me right out. Haven't tried it since but it would be easier if I could get it right. Tips?

    Assuming you use p2p software, I guess just keep adding crap in increments while youre playing gtao. Pay attention to the total network usage. You should get jitters first then you lag out at X mbps or Xgbps then you have a benchmark.
    There's likely something easier. Maybe grab anonymous' s old Hioc (high orbit ion canon) point it at your router and fire. That thing sucks as a dos and needs a botnet to be a ddos. Even at that it's insecure unencrypted ip. But it might lag you out without disconnecting.
    Gtao requires I think about 250kbps to remain online and 2mbps to play with others. Rockstar outlined this in their system requirements. I would link but I'm super lazy. Go to rockstar support and search "I can't play with other players." Or " I can't join a lobby with other people". It will show you trouble shooting steps.
    It's important that you are in a lobby with ppl before you lag out, else you will not be able to do CEO work. Apparently the other players check only happens when you register as CEO. Afterward gtao assumes that other players are in the lobby or left

    This is just a theory though no clue if it works. Last time I used it I was sniffing traffic on the Xbox 360 and booted myself in an attempt to get ready for the impending modders wasteland

    New Xbox One Only Method

    Since the latest Xbox One dashboard update we now have the easiest ever method for a public lobby of one... Sorry PS4/PC but you have your methods.

    Whilst in a public session, hit your home/guide button, go to Settings > Network > Network Settings > Test NAT Type.
    Once you hit that and it completes, back out to your lobby and watch it empty.

    It really is that simple and it's unlikely you'll be joined by randoms any time soon and you can invite your friends, they can join on you.

    HOWEVER - If you are the one that made the lobby you will then be unable to find a new session afterwards.
    To clean it all up you'll either need to run a few missions/races/whatever or reload GTA from the dashboard.
    Those that joined you should be fine.

    I use this one the most but one thing I've done different is I either turned on my CEO/Biker business and then set my respawn to one of the busier apartments/garages/offices

    I've learned there is a limit on how many CEOs you can have in one session and players spawning in the same building.

    If I spawn into Maze Bank as a CEO enough times, I usually get an empty lobby pretty easily.

    I'm sure there are a few other things that affect that but it's worked for me and my gold Servco trophy lol
