How much is enough?

Post by Altruist » Mon Dec 15, 2014 2:15 am

I was curious as I'm sitting here roleplaying in the means to stockpile hours to level up and in turn get paychecks and buy things. How much is enough for you in terms of money and assets?
I think my limit is going to be around 5 million dollars in cash, the cars I want, and a nice house in game. My goal is to finish out savings and receive the 20 million from there.

What do you guys think is your satisfied amount of money in the game?

It took my around 5 years on and off to get to where I thought I wanted to be, with net worth of 50m in 7 houses owned but I felt the need to restart my savings and attempt it again for a business, the greed just never stops once you got a taste for it. :lol:

It's hard to draw the line.
I'd say a nice car, a mansion would be good enough for me - I hope..

But then again, I'm on duty too much to even use my money off duty :P

It's a cycle that really makes you experience human greed in a way that 99% of us will never experience in real life. You start out with your first 100k at ~level 5 and think you own the world. Then you get 250k, put in savings. You think you're rich when you finally pull out your savings at level 30.

Now, I'm sitting at about 25m and it feels inadequate. (Even though the most expensive thing I own is a 800k Palomino Creek house for realism purposes).

It never stops, until you are the 1% at the top and there is legitimately nothing you can't buy on the server.

If you concern yourself with roleplay, the earning becomes something that just happens in the background. No need to threat over it.

I don't know how much all of it would cost, but sometime down the line of playing this, I want to have enough for a business of some sort. Would open me up to a whole new style of roleplaying I never touched before if I was the owner of a club or restaurant.

Had a business, had 10 cars, had a richman mansion. Stopped playing, and now i have a couple of million, i'm happy as long as i've got enough for a decent car, a decent house and to buy drugs/guns to create RP with.

Happy as hell, got a nice business + location for it and a good steady income off of it.

I blew through 70M on BlackJack in the past couple of months and still got a good amount left and that amount continues to grow each week, so I have no problem.

I don't think I'll ever get anything because of all the money I use on paint n sprays from being on duty and people crashing into me.

You never have enough.

I've bought every car you can buy. I own a business. I've bought mansions, houses, apartments, bitches, boats. I've spent millions on guns, drugs, helicopters. Guns on helicopters, helicopters on drugs. Bitches on boats, boats on bitches...

You'll never be satisfied. I've popped my savings back in now just to let it stack up again. It's a fuckin curseeeeeee
