Talk with an accent in-character. To get a good feel of accents, watch a crime-related movie here or there. Watch Goodfellas, or the Departed, or even The Sopranos. Notice how they all talk a little differently? You can easily simulate how they speak with text. Examples;

"'Ey, what the fuck're ye' doin'?
"I pa'ked m'car over there, but some fucker went joyridin' with it."

That's much better than

"hey what ar you doingg"
"i pakrd my car thr but he stoled it"

Don't you think? It might be a bit more of a challenge if you're not very good at using the English language, but if you really want to be a good RPer, I imagine it's worth the extra effort.

- If you lost during a gunfight, or end up dead before the guy you wanted to RP dead, don't whine OOC saying "Reported" :roll:

-When you are giving someone a certain amount of money,be sure to RP it.Don't do just /pay [ID] [Amount].No,do something more in the hands of..
*/me reaches into his inner jacket pocket.
*/me takes out a heavy weighted,overstuffed envelope.
*/me hands it to [Name.]

Or,if you're not wearing a jacket,do something more like..
*/me reaches into his left/right pocket.
*/me takes out a wad of cash stuck together due to a rubberband.
*/me hands it to [Name.]

And,finally,if you're dealing with big amounts of money,do..
*/me walks to the trunk of his car.
*/me reaches into his pocket and takes out a key.
*/me slips the key into the key hole of the trunk and turns the key until a click is heard.
*/me stuffs the key back into his pocket.
*/me then lifts the trunk up,opening it.
*/me grips the handle bar of the briefcase which lays inside of the trunk.
*/me takes the briefcase out.
*/me slams the trunk down and sets the briefcase on the trunk.
*/me then clicks it open and shows the inner material to [Name.]

Just,it's a lot of typing,but very good RP.Be sure to use it.

- Do not provoke police chases but rather, RP a situation to get into a chase.

- Try to use "/me pulls out his (weapon name)" everytime you're going to pull out your weapon and "/me holsters his (weapon name)" when putting your weapon away.

-Make sure you play smart and use what you would use in real-life logic, and complicate thinking. Don't do something stupid in game if it's something you wouldn't really do in real-life. While not to that extreme, as stated don't ignore small roleplays, if someone stares at you the wrong way show them off or walk away, you get hit by another car? Cuss them out and start a scene, you wouldn't just ram a car in real-life and say "Hey, its okay" *Drives off*. In other words, the more you interact the more you retract! (yeah its gay haha sorry for long post!)

+If your poor you can rp the payment of a taxi outside, near drivers window.
-If you call a cabbie, be ready to rp a greeting, dont just say the location.

-When fighting someone, try to /flip when you have low HP. ANd if he RP's robbing you, don't give him $20,000. Give him what you would carry with you at that location in real life.

-Don't have a bind saying /me takes out Shotgun/Mac 11 (Alice moore :lol: ) so you can use that anytime you need a gun. Try to walk to a car, lean in the back (Animation or no.) and /me takes out a shotgun. It's embarrasing to see a random man walking with a shotgun at unity aiming at you. (One was banned for it last night.)
