PC gamers may want to pay attention to how many open slots they have in their garage in Grand Theft Auto V‘s online multiplayer mode because a newly confirmed bug could cause players to actually lose their existing stored vehicles if they try to add a new car to a property that is at full capacity. Detailing the known issues on the official Rockstar Support website, the developer not only took the time to inform GTA V fans that they are aware of the bug, but they also provided gamers with steps to take in order to avoid being affected by the issue until an official fix is deployed.
The bug that PC players are currently experiencing inside Grand Theft Auto V is that the game isn’t prompting a confirmation screen to delete an old save vehicle after users try to add a new car to an already full garage. Normally, GTA V players would receive an in-game message that informs them that parking a new vehicle on their property will remove one of the existing vehicles.
Unfortunately, that confirmation window currently isn’t being displayed with the PC version of GTA V. While Rockstar Games has revealed that they are actively working on a fix to the issue, the developer wanted to provide gamers with tips to help prevent losing their save vehicles until a new patch can be released for Grand Theft Auto V.
Rockstar suggests that GTA V PC users try to pay attention to how many vehicles that they have saved in their garage. The easiest way to avoid overwriting their saved vehicles is by not attempting to store a new one. The developer has confirmed that if gamers try to add a new car to a full garage while an existing personal vehicle is on the street, then they will lose that saved vehicle without any confirmation.
“We are looking into a fix for this issue now, and we expect to have a fix ready for the next patch. To prevent this from happening to your vehicles, be sure to only drive vehicles from the street into a garage with free space.”
This is not the first time that the PC edition of Grand Theft Auto V has seen issues revolving around personal vehicles. After the game recently launched, those who transferred their progress from last-gen consoles to PC had the possibility of losing their saved cars. Then, as the Inquisitr reported earlier this week, the second patch for the PC version of GTA V fixed a bug which would allowed players to purchase more vehicles than what they had space for in their garage.
While Rockstar Games works to fix the personal vehicle issues, the developer once again shared a sampling of what the community has been able to accomplish using the new built-in Rockstar Editor. The video editing tools can only be found on the PC edition of Grand Theft Auto V.
