Getting Started

Recommended Posts

Welcome to the city of Los Santos! You find yourself at City Hall with a little bit of money in your pocket, some money you were able to transfer to the bank, and a whole lot of spunk. What now? Here's a step by step guide on how to hit the streets running on TLSRP.  :)

You start with $2,500 in your wallet and $2,500 in your bank account. 

Give Your Character an Identity 

You'll start out at the creation screen. You'll give your character their first and last name, age, and Bleeter handle (GTA Universe version of Twitter). Your Bleeter handle will show up on screen to the public when you Bleet from your phone. You will also be able to set up your character's appearance. Once your character is set up, you'll walk through the San Andreas border and find yourself right in front of City Hall. Head over to the smaller blue circles to pick a job.

The large light blue circle lets you set your character's appearance if you you're using a freemode character. You can read more on that below under "Changing Your Appearance." 

The small dark blue circle on the right lets you pick your job. Read more on that below.

Pick a Job

There are several jobs available in Los Santos that can be accessed at each job's location (many of which are marked on the map). Some are traditional, others are “hidden” (and thus tend to be on the illegal side). You can sign up for each job at the job's location. As stated in the Community Guidelines, pick a job that matches your character's personality/history/ story/etc. For legal jobs you will receive job specific calls via your phone. However, don't be afraid to come up with something unique in RP to be your job. 

Food/Water:

Much like in your day to day life, while in Los Santos your character will need to eat and drink to stay healthy. You'll have to explore the city to find all the hot spots for food. Drive-Thrus are the best way to keep your thirst quenched and your stomach nice and full. Cluckin' Bell is the closest place to City Hall to grab a bite.

Getting Around:

Want to legally leave City Hall? Calling a Taxi will be your best bet. You can always walk or take one of the Trams. Tram stations are designated on the map with Green T's and a free service provided by the city.     

Changing Appearance

If you don't quite like the appearance you gave yourself from the creation screen,  you can go to a barbershop and type "/skins" to pay $100 to edit your appearance. You are free to use the NPC models available in game for your character. However, be aware that someone may already be using that skin with an active character so be open to potentially changing skins. 

Free Mode Body: 
 

1. Select "Player Model"  

2. Go to the "Slot" section, use Left and Right arrow keys to browse the different skins. 

3. Hit Enter when you've found the skin you want.

Ped Models:

Some Premade Skins have appearance options (not all though). If they do: 

  1. Use the {Left} and {Right} cursors (keyboard) to navigate between Slot or Accessory number.
  2. Cursor {Down} to the first slider row, and cursor {Left} or {Right} to navigate between options.
  3. Cursor {Down} to the second slider row, and cursor {Left} or {Right} to navigate between additional color or pattern choices for the selection if available.
  4. The third slider row does not have a defining effect.

 

Freemode Customization:

"/skins" command allows you to change your character skin and add accessories.

Clothing Stores

The clothing shop lets you fine tune your character's clothing. Marked on map with t-shirt symbol. Only usable by freemode skins.

Barber Shops

The barber shops around the map offer more options to help customize the look of your character. Type "/skins" while in a barbershop to pay $100 to update your look. Additionally, changing the character at the barber shop will fix any mis-match between the face skin color and the rest of the body. *Make sure to set your face first!*

Marked on map with scissors symbol. Only usable by freemode skins. 

 

Pick a Job

There are several jobs available in Los Santos that can be accessed at each job's location (many of which are marked on the map). Some are traditional, others are “hidden” (and thus tend to be on the illegal side). You can sign up for legal civilian jobs at City Hall. As stated in the Community Guidelines, pick a job that matches your character's personality/history/ story/etc. For legal jobs you will receive job specific calls via your phone. However, don't be afraid to come up with something unique in RP to be your job.

Visit the Gym: 

When you first arrive in the city, you'll be strong enough to carry the essentials. Characters max out at 60kg of strength (thus allowing you to carry things in your inventory). Head down to Vespucci Beach and visit Leslie Lifts, the beach side gym to get your swole on.

Now Go RP! 

Those are the basics. If you followed this guide you should have a nice muscle swole, some food in your belly, an identity, and a face at the very least. Now go RP with the fine citizens in the fine state of San Andreas. 

"The primary focus of this server is Role Play... Sometimes the RP will go your way and sometimes it won’t, but if you keep the RP in character and on the server, everyone will have a good time." - TLSRP Community Guidelines
