How to gain strength?
You gain strength by completing tasks for the jobs: trucking, cargo pilot, mining and prospecting and thus receiving Strength experience.
How do I change jobs?
You can change your job at any of the 12 Job Centers, these are orange briefcases on your map. The closest Job Center to City Hall is the Lifeinvader building. Other Job Centers are located at Maze Bank, LSIA, SSIA, Sandy Shores Hospital, Grapeseed, and Paleto Bay Clinic.
Are the servers linked between each other?
Yes. The Servers share one database so it doesn't matter on which server you play.
What do the bars next to the minimap mean?
Some of the bars may only show up when you’re in a vehicle, some only when you’re the driver, and some only when in specific vehicles.
When using a trailer, a third damage bar will appear on the right. This bar indicates the trailer's damage.
When in an aircraft, an altitude meter will appear in the bottom left corner of the map, this will tell you your current altitude in feet.
What is that white circle on the minimap?
Main article: Exp boost hunting
That white circle is a hidden EXP boost. There is a Medi-kit or little box hidden in that area. They are mostly in, below, or on houses. They will give you a 15% XP Boost for 1 hour. If you have an active 15% Boost and you collect another one, you will get a physical boost in your inventory instead.
How can I Put items in the Trailer Inventory?
There are Multiple Ways to do that. Firstly the Access from the M Menu: M→Vehicle Options→Access Trunk→Put (Quantity)
Then we also have a radial Menu on the Key B When you press and hold the Key there is Radial Menu just click now on "Open Trailer" and it will open for you.
Are there weapons on this server?
The only weapons on the server can be obtained through jobs that use them, such as hunter and prospecting, but you aren’t able to target other players, only AI. Weapons can also be obtained from special easter egg locations.
The only menus we have are the M menu, the player list (hold X), and the 8 menu. You can use the M menu to despawn your vehicle, access your inventory, and more.
The 8 menu is only available in a vehicle. It gives you options for your Engine(on/off), Doors (open/close), Speed limiter, Vehicle mods (Liveries/Modifications), and Windows (open/close). No clientside menus are allowed on the server.
How do I repair a vehicle that has too much damage?
How do I respawn my vehicle?
It’s been a whole day and I am still only at tier 1. Is there a faster way to progress?
The point is for you to work hard to level up in the tier system. It will take a while, but it is definitely achievable and fulfilling if you put in the time. We have a community of very happy players that started poor on day one and are now billionaires!
How do I use ATC? How do I find what runways to call?
To use ATC, press TAB. As for the runways, by the rule of thumb, the shortest runway will be JET, and the bigger one will be MAIN. There are only 2 airports (that are typically used) that have more than those two. There are SIDE runways at LSIA, SANDY, and Pacific Ocean (PO). Side runways are almost always right next to the main runways.
What are “special packages”? (Treasure Chests)
How to get Treasure Chest keys?
You can get Treasure Chest keys from picking up chests or break down High- or Medium grade chests High grade gives you 2 keys and Medium grade gives you 1.

To refuel you now can drive up to a gas pump and it will give you the option to refuel your vehicle. For diesel-fueled vehicles, you must refuel them at a fuel station with diesel pumps. You can buy a jerry can at any market at a gas station, they will be marked as “Market (Gas Station)”. If you walk up to a gas pump you can also fuel up your purchased jerry can to fuel up your vehicle anywhere!

How do I make an Advertisement?
To make an advertisement, you need $500M and a Broadcast(100kg) item. The broadcast item can be obtained for free from the Staunton Business Center in Liberty City. You'll need the Trucking job in order to obtain the broadcast.

Can I reset my progress on the server?
At the moment, there is currently no way to reset your progress and start over from nothing.
When you first join, the M menu can be a bit confusing. Here is a guide on how each section of the menu works and how to use it.
1. M→Vehicle Options: If you have purchased a vehicle (and not stolen it off the street) from the car or aircraft dealer, you can access the trunk amongst other things.
Accessing the trunk is one of the most common things you will do in this menu, and this is mostly used for trucking. To load cargo into your trunk from your inventory, use the following command:
- M→Vehicle Options→Access Trunk→Put (Quantity)
You can put your cargo into the trunk to transport more of it. To do this, use the following:
- M→Vehicle Options→Access Trunk→Take (Quantity)
- You can also “Put All” which will put all items with weight into your trunk. “Put Everything” which will put every item in your inventory into the trunk. “Repeat Take” which will take exactly what you took on your last take.
- M→Vehicle Options→Auto Park (Delete) will despawn your vehicle. You can respawn it again at a garage, which are the blue house icons.
- M→Vehicle Options→Detach cargobob is used if you have attached a vehicle or trailer with the cargobob and want to release it.
- M→Vehicle Options→Detach Tow Truck is never used. Don’t use this. Es brok3n D: this is so sad, Alexa, play despacito!

- M→Vehicle Options→Kick Driver is used to kick people out of your vehicle or the driver, if your car is stolen. Note: Only works if in range.
- M→Vehicle Options→Lock/unlock vehicle ATTENTION, IT DOESN'T WORK AT THIS MOMENT is pretty straightforward. Beware that locking your vehicle also locks you out so if you somehow lose ownership of your vehicle by being too far away you will not be able to get back in!
