[HELP] LSRP FAQ

Postby Hamza on Thu May 05, 2011 10:47 pm

Hello LS-RP new comers,

Well here is a short FAQ (Frequently Asked Questions) for you all too read so you can have a heads up and hopefully not have to use /re or /helpme as much.

Below are some of the most common /helpme's I have saw, and the answers to them. If anyone thinks I have missed something. Then give me a shout!


1) What should I do if I am frozen?
  • Do /re Can someone unfreeze me please.
  • Relog or ForceCrash

2) How do I contact an Admin?
  • To contact an admin, simply use /re including the reason why you want to contact him.
  • To report player, use /report [PlayerID] [Reason]
Note: Remember, admins are always busy, so spamming the /re, or /report wouldn't go anywhere, if you are patient, you will get one.


3) Why do I not spawn at my home or Rented Property.
  • First at all, make sure you have enough money in your bank account, even if you want to spawn at your own house.
  • Second, use /changespawn at you OWNED house, or /rentroom at RENTED property.

4) How to get list of colors' ID ?
  • Use /colorlist in game
  • Or Click here

5) How do I buy a car?
  • Go to the vehicle dealerships located at either Commerce, Rodeo, LS Airport or Santa Maria docks. At those places you can do /v for a full list of information on how to purchase a vehicle.

    [Actions] list, get, park, sell, accept, register
    [Actions] buy, buylock, buyalarm, buyimmob, buyinsurance, buypark
    [Actions] info, tow, colour, duplicatekey, mod, faction
    [Delete] scrap (warning: deletes your vehicle completely)
    [Hint] There is a guide how to use all these actions on http://www.ls-rp.com

6) I've bought a car, how to use it ?
  • Use /v list, to get your car ID (1 - 10), then /v get [CAR ID] you want to get it, and it will be spawned at it's park place.
  • Use /v park, to despawn your vehicle at it's park place.
  • USe /v buypark to set your vehicle's park location. (For free if near your owned house, or $2500 anywhere else)

7) Is the /v find Metagaming?
  • No, else it would of been removed. This is RP'd as a Car Tracker for most people.

8) Where is the Driving License place?
  • This is south of the big Ammu-Nation on Main Street.

9) How do I join a Faction?
  • Legal faction: If you want to join legal faction, such as Police department, or Government, etc, you have to apply through the forum, check the link: viewforum.php?f=36
  • Illegal faction: Simply read the factions thread on the forums about how there recruitment works. Some are IC some are on the forums. Then do not Metagame, try and find a way in, through IC methods.
    viewforum.php?f=5

10) How to report player
  • You can check here, and fill up the format given, then wait for admin to check it.

11) How to report a bug?
  • If you find a bug, we are asking you to report it in order to fix it, check viewforum.php?f=509

12) Where is the bank?

13) How to withdraw, deposit money into my bank account
  • To withdraw money, go to bank inside, then use /withdraw [MONEY]
  • To deposit money, go to bank inside, then use /bank [MONEY]


14) How do savings work?
  • Savings are fairly confusing. Though you can insert between 50k and 100k. Then you get interest of 0.5% on whatever is in your savings. Though BEWARE, you cannot use your bank account whilst savings are active.
  • When you reach savings up to 20 millions, it will be transfered to bank account.


15) I've got a speeding camera's fine, how to pay it ?
  • Use /fine for more informations.. and to pay it, you got to use /fine pay [Ticket ID] in City Hall.
    To get ticket ID, use /fine display all
  • Los Santos Government HQ is actually City Hall, which is located near Police Department HQ.
    sa-mp-806.png

16) Do the guns save ?
  • If you got it properly from /trunk, or from weapon dealer, then yes, it will be saved.
  • But if you got it through the /box, or /stealweapon from unconsious player, it won't be saved.
    Note: Only few weapons are saveable, some of them aren't.
    Saveable weapons
    • 9mm
    • Silenced 9mm
    • Desert Eagle
    • Shotgun
    • Combat Shotgun
    • Country Rifle
    • MP5
    • Tec9
    • AK47
    • M4
    But the other weapons, like Car Bomb, Sniper rifles, etc, aren't saveable.

17) How do I get a flying license.
  • Goto the New Player Spawn at the airport, look to your right and you will see a Yellow "I" in the middle. Go to the "i" and hit /enter. Then get into the helictoper and happy flying!!.
  • It costs 300k to get a flying license.

18)If I buy a house, do I keep it for good?
  • Of course, you spent the money and you do in real life. So you DEFINATELY do in-game at LS RP.
    Note: If you go inactive for more than 14 days, your house may be Admin Sold.

19) How to change the interior of my house.
  • Visit this link, and apply for an interior change.
    Note: If the current interior fits the outside, then the interior won't be changed.

20) How do I tow a car?
  • If you are mechanic: Simply sit in your mechanics truck, get someone else to sit the vehicle your trying to tow, and use /attach ID.
    This will put the car onto your Truck
  • If you are impounder: use /attachcar [TowTruck ID] [Vehicle ID] (To get ID, use /dl)

Another one;

If you have /setrentable on but no money in your bank account, it's basically like you renting there yourself, so you'll need money in your bank if you wish to own a house and also have it up for rent.

Nice, should definitely help the new comers.
I, Vanille, will join the probation group in order to serve my debt to Los Santos Role Play. I choose to follow the rules inside of the group as followed. I am fully aware that the tasks involved can change and or even expand as the leads see fit. I will agree to a ban if I can not fulfill the groups purpose!
