This guide is to help you on your First Day in the city and hopefully help you along so you can start your roleplaying experience with others,
so you don't have to keep asking basic questions and having to wait for answers.
Clearing your Cache files
If you have been in other servers it's a good idea to start with a fresh Cache folder.
To clear your cache, go to where the file is located (AppData/Local/FiveM/FiveM Application Data/cache) and delete the cache folder. Doing so will also force fivem to update and you should be good to go.
You can clear everything inside the cache folder (except) for the game folder and prevent fivem from updating and only clear server cache.
If you want to get the latest FiveM Update without deleting the Game Folder. You can delete everything but the Game folder & the "caches.xml" (shown in the picture above)
Multi Character Creation
Every time you load into the server you will be persented with this screen
You have 4 Characters, each with seperate Money, Vehicles, Housing, Phone Numbers & Contacts
The PLAY & DELETE buttons will always be under your first slot.
When you click on a box it currently puts a grey ring around it, but we are looking into making it our Gold color.
When you click DELETE it will ask you if you are sure.
IF YOU DELETE YOUR CHARACTER, WE HAVE NO WAY OF GIVING THAT STUFF BACK
When you create a new character you will begin at a Register Screen to start the Character Creation process
Here is where you will create your character.
We ask you give yourself a realistic and well thought of name.
Please only have a First and Last name with no spaces in between.
Date-of-Birth must be a realistic date.
Height does NOT make your Character Taller or Shorter.
Once your done click "Create" and you will be at the "Skin" Menu to change your appearance.
A few things to remember when making your character:
Bulletproof Vests - Should NOT be worn as you are new to the city and doesn't make much sense for someone to be wearing one. Also they Can NOT be removed unless you make a new character.
Torso & T-Shirt - This can be tricky at first but it's easy to remember.
Torso is what you select as your Main Top. If you have a Closed top like a Jacket or Sweatshirt, then you would select the T-Shirt option to 15.
If you have Open Jacket or Shirt, then the T-Shirt option is to select what is showing underneath. Keep in mind not all clothing works together.
Items with 2 Options - The 2nd option for items is normally the colour variation.
Masks - The Mask option should NOT be used when creating your Character at this point.
You should NOT be walking around the City wearing a mask as its a Server Rule.
If you are using one in a crime that is fine.
There is a Mask Shop shown on the Map and you can select one from there.
Some items may not work for all clothing and make-up options.
You can visit a Clothing Store or Barbershop if you missed something.
Dropped Pin - First Spawn Location
T-Shirt - Closest Clothing Store
Scissors - Closest Barbershop
Voice Chat Settings
Next thing you will want to do is make sure your mic is working.
Make sure you have followed all the instructions for TokoVoip & TeamSpeak.
Having a good quality Microphone is very important.
Your System settings for your Microphone may affect the way your microphone sounds as well.
