I am working on a research project based on GTAV (Grand Theft Auto 5-GTA5) on PC. However, I need to use teleport feature of Script Hook V which when I use it and go anywhere, I lose the mission because it tells me I abandoned Lamar. Also when I am just playing normally and grab the car (after someone talked to Michael) using Y and then press on gas pedal and follow Lamar, after less than 1 minutes, it just tells me I lost the mission because of losing Lamar. How can I get rid of this whole Lamar thing and play solo? Seems for teleporting, I do really need to play solo else Lamar will be left out. I am also planning to run the scrips (C Sharp and Lua scripts) using Script Hook V .NET and for so teleporting is needed.

  • I bought the game from Rockstar and is run on Windows 10 x64 in 64-bit mode.
  • Thanks to Script Hook V and pressing F4, teleport feature works but I lose the mission right after going to the new place.

Here's the car driving part that I lose because of Lamar:

    If you're actually coding, you should probably be asking this at GameDev.SE, not here.

    I think you're not understanding the game rails here. Franklin has to follow Lamar and stay within X distance or FAIL triggers. Stand still, teleport, etc - if the player falls outside X, FAIL. You need to either prpgress, revert to a save on an easier mission to clear it and go back to free-roam. Commented Jan 3, 2017 at 23:23

    The game works on mixture of missions and free roam. To have a relatively unconditional experience you'll have to complete the mission successfully (or fail enough to be asked if you want to skip) and go to a free roam portion of the game. If you're just starting it will take a bit of time to go through all the character intros and basic story setup Commented Jan 3, 2017 at 23:41

    Not in a strict sense, but you "feel" it. You will have a sense of "um, what now?" because you'll notice a lack of direction regarding what you need to do. It's not of what to look for, but what you'll notice is missing that is your tip off. A couple of hours in through constant play and you'll have no problem naturally identifying the difference.

You need to complete the mission (and any other auto-triggered missions) before you can free roam.
