Anyone use the Place Manager mod?

Things that i'll be working on after i get the photo ops done:
Tags in Los Santos
Oysters all around
Unique Jumps (for all the good it will do, i havnt tried to teleport inside a vehicle yet)
Property Locations for all cities
Currently i have 36 of the photo ops saved on the file, however, this week is finals for me, and i have a website to make by friday, so, tomorow i wont really be able to work on it, but, i will be back in full swing friday night....
the only real problem i see with this:
Honestly, looking into the mod, i dont see a place to save the list at. i see that the Ini file in the mod has locations in it, and could probably just upload that... or even just make a post on the forums that could be copy/pasted into the Ini file... *shrugs* ill test out a few things before doing that though.
Anyone wanna work on getting the other items? *pleading eyes* =P

Quick notes on the photos: The teleport locations are in range of the picture itself so you can take it, The #s are really wacky because of the fact i was following the Brady Games (worthless) stratagy guide. After i go wash my damn step-dads car because he is to lazy to go get it done himself, ill try to work on a note file for these so you know where the picture is.
Other Notes: When looking for the pictures, all you need to do is get the symbol fairly close in the shot. be warned, during daytime, it can be hard to see the icon, and it will still count even if you cant see it.
Note file for the photos to follow soon. Working on the Horseshoes right now, but, some of those are proving to be troublesome, need to go grab the jetpack or a helicopter for a few of them. also need to go email brady games about how crappy thier stratagy guide is. "Exclusively covers Xbox and PC versions"... then why do you have the PLAYSTATION 2 button commands in the book?! who was the genious that organized the #s on ANY of the items you need to get (horseshoes, photos, ect), they have no order to them, they are no where each other... BAH...
enough of my useless rambling, here is the teleport file. as i said, just copy paste. in theory, it should work, if it doesnt, lemme know asap.

As i said, i took the #s from the official stratagy guide, why they are so scattered around, i have no idea.
Oxide, which parts are you gunna work on?
Because the horseshoes have been giving me so much trouble, i may just move on to all the propertys that can be purchased... they are a lot less stressfull at this point. the stratagy guide i have is really ticking me off.

Went to a diff forum and saw this there, it says that its all the horseshoes,pictures,tags, and oysters around. im goin to check it now. as long as i dont edit this post, they are all good. =P
NOTE: if you dont glitch and still dont get the oyster, that means it loaded when you moved out of its range, just swim down to it. if you do have this happen to you, just run to an OUTDOOR save as it may glitch on the indoor ones, and then quit the game and reload. If you do glitch and fall through the ground, run for a save, DO NOT AIM at anytihing or camera will lock. save and quit and reload.
NOTE 2: do NOT have any on screen messages when teleporting. "Oyster Collected of 50" or anything. it will glitch the game.
Oyster 01 has some issues with it. aka, you fall through the floor. you also dont pick up the oyster. Change to:
to be right.
Oyster 07, sometimes glitches change the Z to +1.5 on it. then remember to swim down.
Oyster 23 change Z to +4.0
Oyster 25 Change Z to +40.0
Oyster 26 change Z to +38.0
Oyster 36 change Z to 0.0
Oyster 40 change Z to 0.0
Oyster 41 change Z to 0.0
Horseshoe 30 MIGHT be
that one, not sure yet, the current one is way off though, and that is the closest one to it.
Lastly, i am missing one of the Horseshoes, i dont know which one though... ill have to go through with a checklist of some kind on monday.
If you want to make life easy, most of them can be changed to 0.0 on the Z so you wont glitch when going into the water and fall to your doom/bug. I'm out of time to play today, otherwise i woulda made notes on those ones, but, ill try to get that list up asap, or just mod the Z axis on the oysters with +2-5 so you are a little higher and fall into the water, rather then through it.
ANOTHER note: use the list i gave for the photo ops. the ones in the file teleport you to where the photo op is... which results in death a lot of times.
