Hello, with the new release and the influx of new players I have decided to make a full beginners guide.
First of all if anyone has any questions regarding the keybinds Daniel Woodland has made an excellent document containing all of these. Link: https://docs.google.com/document/d/1Lo19TUeXheiB0S0CkJWNy2YrVqDl0hBOs3cMF9cPXK0/
Now if you havent already created a character do so, this should be fairly straight forward but make sure you spend some time on it to make sure it is the way you want it.
After that you might have the issue that you cant hear anyone and they can't hear you.
If you have this issue dont worry. All you need to do is to fix up your voice settings. to do that press ESC, Go to "Settings" then "Voice chat". There you want to make sure that your Volume and sensitivity is on, your voice chat is enabled and push to talk is fixed. To speak just press "N" and make sure you are in range of the person you want to speak with, you can increase/decrease this distance by pressing "Shift H".
Now that you've got that sorted you might be wondering, how do i get a job?
Simple just head over to the big Pink icon marked in the middle of the city, this is the job center. By now you might have noticed the big white bar on the bottom of your screen, this is your exp counter. The amount of xp and lvl determines what you are able to do on the server. So you as a new guy will probally be lvl zero, thus you will only have access to the Pizza delivery job. You will have to do quite a few Pizza runs until you reach Lvl 10, at this point you can progress over to the Trucker job. this continues until you are at the lvl of 100 which is the level cap on this server. As you level up you will unlock new items such as weapons and Vehicles but you will also gain access to new illegall jobs like Weed and Meth.
After doing a few pizza jobs you might have noticed the high crime rate in Los Santos, Wheter you have witnessed it or even been a victim of it yourself. With this in mind it might be a good idea to buy a weapon, to do this you must go to one of the many marked gun shops. These are marked as black pistols with a red outline. here you need to buy a weapons license before you can buy a weapon. After that just take your pick and pay, congratulations, you've just bought your very first legal weapon.
At this point you might have earned up a bit of money and want to buy a car. To do this go to the White car marked on the map right next to the Job center and take a look. There is tons of choices. Once you've made out a decision on which one to get press buy and enter your new vehicle. To get your keys press U while sitting in the drivers seat. Now you want to save your vehicle, to do this head over to the closest garage and enter the red circle and press E, to retrieve it again just go to the green one and do the same.
From here on its up to you what you want to do, almost anything is possible just use your imagination and you will come far.
I hope this has helped, please leave feedback below if i missed anything.
