  1. Feature Showcase: Phone system & store Commands /inv, /(my)phones Allows you to see all the phones currently in your inventory and their associated numbers. /setmainphone [number], /mainphone [number] Allows you to set your 'main phone' - this is the phone from which all phone-based commands will come from, similarly to the radio frequencies. /missedcalls (/mcs, /mynotifications, /phonenotifs, /pnotifs, /voicemail) Displays all the currently outstanding voicemails or texts that the player is yet to receive. /applycustomnumber Applies your custom phone number on a phone /cancelcontract (number) Cancels a contract that you previously purchased Other commands: /phoneon /phoneoff /togphone /removelocation /sendlocation /sms /contacts /addcontact /removecontact /messages /deletemessage /deleteallmessages /call /hangup /pickup Information Phones will be available in phone stores, and you are now able to buy multiple phones. Each phone has a different number, meaning they can be used for a range of things! PAYG phones or contract phones will be available, both with different pricing / fees. Each phone has its own contact list and phone number - meaning they can be used for a variety of things and then thrown away or passed on afterwards. For example, you can purchase a new phone for a drug deal and then throw it. Phones are able to be passed between players and the numbers stay with the phone - you could pre-program your number into a range of burner phones for your gang, or even use the phones to frame people. All commands such as /call, /sms, /addcontact will be performed on the phone which is designated as your 'main phone'. This is to avoid confusion with multiple commands. Also, phones are no longer automatically associated with names meaning PD or other Government agencies will have to use intelligence from various sources and keep their records up to date. Only contracts will be associated to your name. All phones are active at the same time as long as they're ON and in your inventory. The main phone is the one used for commands (/call, /sms ...) Phone stores You may now become the proud owner or employee of a phone store and help players choosing the best phone or contract for their needs! PAYG Phones / Contract phones A contract phone will have your name bound to the phone contract and you'll have the ability to manage your active contracts. You can cancel a contract with /cancelcontract. A PAYG "Pay as you go" phone has no contract bound to it, and thus your name isn't linked to your phone number. However you'll pay everytime you need to send a message or make a call. If the phone is stolen, the thief will be able permanently access your phone and number Missed Calls & Text Persistence Need to send someone a text but they're offline or their phone is off? Not to worry - it'll still send and that player will receive the text next time they check their messages. Likewise, need to ring someone but can't get through? Leave a voicemail - a single line of text that the player will receive when they next turn their phone on or check their voicemails. What about my current/custom phone number? Your current phone number will always remain yours, same for custom phone numbers. You can use /applycustomnumber on your main phone to apply it again.

Guns: Needed only for "important" meetings Kurtis Michael Bell was born in Canada, British Columbia into a somewhat loving family. He was born as the only child in his 'farming' family, his mother " Bailey Bell " a well-known chef for a small local business called | Ovella's Water Cafe| and was most often on call for most of her time there, his father "Michael Bell" was busy mostly taking care of the house, farm, animals.. including their dog Booker and Diesel & the surrounding acres that they bought into. Kurtis had baby-blue eyes, was born quite hefty and grew into a fine young kid that was sculpted for farm work. Kurtis was quite the normal kid, was often doing well in school.. usually getting straight B+ to A's and that's exactly how got his first guitar from his father when he turned the age of five, always practicing every day for hours, it was one of his most loved passions besides riding his bike and cooking with his mother when she was home on off-time. It was about at the age of seven when Kurtis started to know some mishaps and faults around the house, seeing more beer bottles piling up and seeing more papers on the table each day, bills piling up and fewer vegetables growing in the field and fewer animals being sought out for butchering, no more meat selling as it was the year before. Kurtis didn't really pay attention to it too much due to he was always fixated on his grades in school, always trying to impress his mother and father more than usual, he had a bunch of friends he would also play with after school towards "Old Gordon's Garage" usually looking at all the abandoned scrapped cars and various scrap pieces of metal. It was about October 18th when Kurtis was ten and started to get more serious into his music and guitar, writing and playing more and more each day, learning how to use chords well enough to keep up his fingers to his own lyrics he'd be writing in a small near-worn down note-book that his parents got from some second-hand store and also learning how to use a little program ( FL-Studios ) on his 'first' computer that he set up in his room. His school life started to get a bit more difficult as he started to see his father get more aggressive per month, though he still didn't truly understand but had a small little guess due to his mother wasn't working anymore and was mainly staying inside the house instead of helping around as she use to. September 28, 1994, Kurtis turned sixteen and couldn't be happier, his mother saved up all the money she could and bought him his favorite guitar he's been looking at since day one | Martin Acoustic | and was overly joyed with it as soon as he took it out from the case, his father was not there to be seen or to be around for the few weeks between and after. For the first time ever his mother broke the news of her cancer and how it was starting to spread and how the bills on the table and the farm becoming less frequent was due to her paid treatments and needed supplements to keep up to date and 'pace' with the two boys inside the house. The news utterly ruined Kurtis's birthday and ruined his mood for most of that year until he started to pick up his work around the farm. Farm work wasn't easy, it was something that pained him but learned to love, learned to enjoy the smell of the dung, the animals that surrounded him, the smell of the peach trees and the beautiful scents that carried in the wind towards the pig-pen when he was feeding the pigs, but to most men it was hard work and handwork meant hard earned money, a true figure. Kurtis never really used guns unless it was his fathers' rifle when they went camping and hunting out towards the sticks, usually a good thousand feet up, hunting for Elk or Moose. Often the trips turned into the worst of deals, usually with Kurtis with a few bruises on his face or towards his stomach, usually no food in the truck, just a pile of empty beer cans and some ammo missing. It wasn't the best deal out of the bunch but it was still some 'alone' time with his father. Kurtis was withdrawing a bunch of pain and guilt over the course of the years. At the age of his eighteen grades fell drastically as did his love for music and his father. His mother was getting more sick by every month, his father drunker and they eventually lost the farm, the animals and their property and moved into a small apartment just outside of the few acres they use to own right beside a small little factory that mostly produced bread and wheat products. Kurtis was in a major angst in his life, he was starting to hang out with the wrong crowd, taking his time into the city and getting into various thefts, hanging with some 'city' crew, usually riding his BMX to the skate-park and hanging with his friend Matthew and Christopher that often where hanging around the "hood' of their little town, usually ending in drunken stoopers and smelly jackets that smelt of weed and booze. His father and mother where always unimpressed and judging him due to this factor, usually calling him out and harming his mental state around the house. Kurtis's mother passed on during November 15th, 2018, he was only nineteen when he found out from the hospital phoning their land-line, his father was out at the bar getting drunk with his friend Micky. Kurtis grabbed his fathers gun and went out shooting, went to their old farm on his fathers' motorcycle that his father bought earlier on that year and decided it'd be a good night to shoot some cans, this would eventually lead to one of the most painful nights of his life. An old worn down truck with a back missing window eased down the long and muddy driveway of the farm, the lights near blinding Kurtis as he'd try to hide the rifle, though was too late. His father got out of the truck and walked up with a beer in hand, his friends gathered around him just as drunk and found his fathers motorcycle shot up, some cans around it shot to the side with various holes littering the grass behind it. Kurtis was beaten into a pulp that night by his father and his 'merry' men, claiming it was his fault for the painful process of the family and his needs to show off his grades during school, making his father seem weak. His father left him in the mud, blood lathering over his face and looking quite pained, laying there for most of the night until he got up himself and rushed home to call the cops and watch his father get locked up in the back of a cruiser and taken away. Kurtis went to university after awhile of taking care of the various bills that started to pile up, graduating in a year course for photography and design out of some university in the lower-mainland. It wasn't much but something still he could hold tight under his belt and keep him afloat if in need. Kurtis got a job half-time at the Factory beside his 'families' apartment and at a small chicken farm down the road from where he use to live, his old neighbors place to keep up with the tuition and various things he'd need to proceed in class and assignments. Turning twenty was a harder time for Kurtis, the family was everything. His family was his life, his spark, his feed that kept him going as was his friends and the music that followed. He tried to keep up the apartments bills with the shitty job he had at the factory & chicken farm that only paid the bare the minimum, there was too much debt pushed into his fathers' name. Kurtis was overwhelmed and was overly uncomfortable in his current condition where he lived, he was still young and was still just barely scraping by on what he could. Kurtis phoned up his buddy Matthew and asked if he could stay with him only to be declined due to he moved to the United States, he did the same quickly to Christopher later that week and got rejected instantly " Your family is fucked up man, I can't keep up with that shit, my mom would kill me..". Kurtis grew to his wit's end and got tired of his situation, he knew nothing was going to change unless he moved and started his own slate, somewhere beyond the bushes and somewhere no one really knew him or his fathers bullshit and away from the shit-industry of smog and wheat. Kurtis packed very few clothes in his backpack, sold most of his fathers possessions and the very few things he could of his mothers, only keeping her photo and a small key-chain she had for the key to her truck, everything came seven hundred and fifty-five bucks, just enough for a ticket and enough to last himself a few weeks to find work to this so-called "Los Santos" paradise he's heard of from his friend Matthew that moved there earlier on that year for university. Kurtis grabbed his guitar and back-pack and did the only thing he thought was best and move, another life, another slate done clean and start his own 'family' in due time. Figuring out what he wants out of it all, let it be fame, fortune, troubles and harder times than before. As to what happens when he takes the step onto American soil is up to his nature. Naturally progressing as a musician or perhaps further deeper and more questionable assets await. Current State Nothing is easy inside the city, it was clear once Kurtis saw his first death on a boat with his friend Maverick Russel, some rapist they saw on a boat beat dead in front of him with a bottle and their own boots. This shit wasn't easy for the Kurtis to handle, let alone to deal without making himself look weak to those around him, only being the little to few friends he had at the time. Causing him to look devastated and lost, he's never really harmed anyone besides standing up to the few bullies in high school, seems all that is coming to a big stop and some things are bound to ever change. Coming into the later months Kurtis found himself more appreciated than he ever thought, finding some of his best friends within a small commune in a place on the beach, most of them consisting of "bikers" and other no-gooders. Kurtis fell hard with the 'family' vibe and ended up doing various small tasks, gradually getting his own cruiser ( Western Zombie Bobber ) and riding with the "Boys' that surrounded himself as family. This all came down to Kurtis growing more violent, more defensive and always trying to take care of his friends, family and loved ones around him to make sure that he wouldn't have the same mistake happen again, himself left in the mud bloody and dry without his family there to pick himself up. Seems after a few months went by.. everyone inside the "CLUB" started to either be a no-show or just started to "promise" high-tides and come in with low grounds, saying that the life will be a great one if everyone works together, yet it seems to be the case of fools gold. Kurtis and his best friend @Rat0verlord have spent the past few months organizing, dealing, pushing and playing out product to most of the people in and around Sandy Shores, Vespucci, The city and more.. alone. They grew sick and tired of the same old game of waiting and hearing false accusations, even more tired of being ridiculed for being in the 'wrong' patches and finally came to the conclusion ( after destroying Kurtis' bike ) and had the first meeting of the "Gutter Rats" with his new-found crew, thus starting a new beginning. The crew decided to let Kurtis lead forward and move their operations out into the city, focusing and moving back to their roots, family in.. and family out, no lies and no ties. (As for more about Kurtis, there is plenty to learn and plenty to find out. As to what you'll be to him now or down the line is up to you. See you in game, have any tips.. let me know!)

Possessing an intimidating physique and demeanor, Thomas has been known to assert himself in recent situations as a reliable and stoic man. History Born in Alderney, Liberty City. Alo is the son of a local gym owner Frank Alo who is said to have ties to the Pegorino Crime Family in Liberty City. After finishing high school, Alo worked as a mechanic for several years whilst simultaneously functioning as an associate of the Pegorino family in Liberty City. This was also around the time when Alo married his high-school sweetheart ‘Maria’ - However, around 1996-1997, Alo decided to leave his role as a mechanic entirely to work for the Pegorino family as upon welcoming his daughter into the world, he had to find more avenues of income. Alo, already building a reputation for his quirky money-making schemes became quickly acquainted with notable figures in the Pegorino family such as Joey Pegorino. By 1998, the Pegorino family had become engaged in a three-way gang war with the Sindacco and Forelli families. The hostilities lead to Jimmy Pegorino - the boss of the Pegorino family being arrested, the assassination of the Forelli-controlled Mayor Roger C. Hole, the death of Sindacco family Don Paulie Sindacco and the massive bombing and destruction of Fort Staunton. The Pegorino family was significantly weakened by this, it was further devestated by the arrest of Jimmy Pegorino and the unwillingness of Joey Pegorino to lead. The subsequent death of Jimmy Pegorino lead to further dismay within the family, encouraging many to depart to other families and ventures. Taking this opportunity, Alo decided to migrate to Chicago to raise his family and resume his work as a mechanic. During this time, Alo was also chopping stolen vehicles in order to further his income and through this he made another connection with a Chicago based crime organisation, however the extent of Alo’s involvement was limited due to his concentration being given to his family and daughter. In 2001, Alo decided to sign up for the USMC and was sent away to Afghanistan, for a standard one-year tour. Not accustomed to the extensive discipline, Alo had a difficult time initially adjusting in the Corps but eventually found his own place. Whilst at the Corps, Alo made a few dear friends with whom he still maintains contact with now. To commemmorate his short-lived time in the USMC, Alo has his dogtags displayed as a tattoo around his neck. Present-Day By the year 2015 - after the death of his wife Maria, Alo again looked to move elsewhere. Alo’s daughter was now old enough and away to college, this lead to Thomas heading to Los Santos where he quickly became acquainted with Frank ‘Icarus’ Russo - an associate of the Clinton Avenue Crew. The two quickly became great friends, and began collaborating on various schemes and businesses together such as; Waste Management, Pornography and even extortion. Through Frank, Alo then became acquainted with a mobster named ‘Roy Capra’ who anointed him with the moniker of ‘Sunshine’ due to his quick wit and intelligence. Alo now works with Roy Capra within the Clinton Avenue Crew. Recognizing the vast opportunity in LS, Alo decided to make a bold move and create an online-casino with the help of a long-term associate 'Kevin O'Keeffe'. The financial output from this avenue was immense and quickly proppelled Alo into a great earner, earning him significant respect and reliability within the crew. After time has passed within the Clinton Avenue Crew, Alo has now asserted himself as a reliable and respected member of the organisation falling under the radar of the 'Capo'; Salvatore Lena. Alo now functions as the right-hand man of Roy Capra as well as the personal driver of Salvatore Lena. After building a name for himself within the Clinton Avenue Crew, Thomas Alo was formally put 'on-record' with the Capo; 'Salvatore Lena'. Over time, after building a reputation of loyalty, dilligence and an overall stoic individual - Thomas Alo was nominated for membership by his friend, Roy Capra who was an influencial and respected figure within the Clinton Avenue Crew. After being directly involved in the assassination of Anthony Scutari & Benito Fallone - Thomas asserted himself as a solid individual and was quickly propelled into the rank of Soldier within what is now the Los Santos Crime Family and was a made man.

  6. I had this suggestion up before the rollback on the forums, allow players to manage their bank account and the new ATM cards that will be added. Would allow businesses to confirm that a payment has gone through with a specific transaction ID.

  7. Info: Name: Christopher Jackson Turner Date of Birth: Tuesday, March 3rd, 1998 (Pisces) Birthplace: Baton Rouge, Louisiana Appearence: Height: 6’0ft/182.88cm Weight: 164 lbs Build: Skinny Eye color: Brown Accent: Southern Louisiana/New Orleans Story: Christopher Jackson Turner was born on March 3rd, 1998 in Baton Rouge Louisiana. He grew up in the public housing projects on Gardere Lane (known as G-Lane), a neighborhood with a high poverty rate, along with a very high crime rate. Growing up in a single parent household, his mother – Caroline Turner gave birth to her only son at the age of sixteen, when she was just a sophomore in high school. Her longtime boyfriend at the time, and Christopher's father, Jordan Williams was eighteen when he found out he was going to have a son. Jordan at the time was a high-school dropout, and making a decent amount of money for only being eighteen years old, by working as a pimp in a prostitution ring spread out across the neighborhood. Since Baton Rouge has one of the highest STD ratings in the country, Jordan was only adding to this percentile. It was Jordan’s idea to name his son Chris, after his favorite NBA player at the time, power forward Chris Webber who played on the Washington Bullets, however Caroline didn’t approve of this name, and wanted a more full name – so the two argued about naming their son for weeks, until they were both willing to settle with Christopher, which has the definition of “carrier of Christ.” (The following map shows the area of Baton Rouge Christopher grew up in, Gardere Lane, or as the locals call it “G-Lane”.) After celebrating only his son’s second birthday, on March 19th, 2001 Jordan’s life would be taken in a homicide that was committed by his own friend, Torrance Booker. The police explain the event to have been the cause of the two former friends arguing over a card game, in which Torrance lost, and refused to pay his debt. After a fight broke out Torrance reached for a pistol and gunned Jordan down. Caroline took her longtime boyfriend and baby daddy’s loss very hard, and began to pursue Church every Sunday, at a Lutheran traditional church. Since she found the path of god, she finally got her two year old son at the time baptized, and would enroll him in Sunday school classes for toddlers. (The newspaper article that was published by Baton Rouge Daily, the day after Jordan was murdered.) (A mugshot from 2000 of Christopher’s father – Jordan Williams after being arrested for possession of narcotics.) Growing up, Chris was always driven by his mother to be the best he possibly could, and was always kept busy and involved, between Church, sports and school. As a child, his elementary school teachers described him as bright, energetic, and enthusiastic about learning, causing his mother to be very proud of her son from an early age. She even would call him “Smiley” because he was always seen smiling and happy as a toddler, and it was rare to see him upset or crying. Throughout middle school he kept his focus on extra circular activities, and played on the Cougars – Bailey Middle School’s basketball team. By the end of eighth grade, and the summer going into high school however, things began to spiral downhill. During the summer, because of the immense free time he had on his hands, without having priorities such as team sports and school, a large window of opportunity opened up for him and his friends to get in trouble, especially since he was home alone five days a week for seven hours while his mother was at work. At the age of fourteen, Chris had tried smoking weed for the first time out of a home-made aluminum pipe, and after taking the first toke he fell in love. It was a match made in heaven he thought. Every day of the 2011-2012 summer vacation that year, he’d go to his friend Brandon’s house whose father sold dope and would do nothing except play Xbox 360, get high and munch out on junk food. His mother, who knew her son like the back of her own hand, knew something was up, and one night caught him at three in the morning in their backyard smoking pot out of an apple. As soon as she caught him, she instantly took off her belt and laid down the beats on him, attempting to scare him to stop smoking. However, the marijuana usage didn’t come to a halt, and despite being a strong believer in Christianity, his mother seemed to grow tired of arguing with her son, as it was starting to put a strain on their relationship, and thought to herself that as long as it’s just pot, he’ll be alright, and allowed him to smoke it care-free. By the time his freshman year came around, lots of the kids he grew up with and went to grade school with were tatted up, gang-affiliated, or not even going to school anymore, being drop-outs and the girls were beginning to walk around school with babies in their stomachs, it was a truly toxic learning environment. High school was a rude educational awakening for Chris, as he started the school year, he was out of shape from doing nothing for three months during summer vacation, so he didn’t try out for any school sports, and he lacked motivation to do well in school, since nine out of ten times, he’d be showing up to school baked anyway. Despite all of this, Chris was still a pretty smart kid compared to his peers, and steered clear of gang-banging, and never took home a failing grade during his freshman year, averaging a C+ in his classes. Finishing his freshman year at the age of fifteen, his marijuana habit was beginning to get more and more expensive, and to support it, he knew he had to get a job somewhere to finally make some money on his own. So he applied at every fast-food restaurant close to him, and ended up getting hired at a local fried chicken restaurant. Chris hated his job, but he loved and looked forward to pay-day every Friday, so he stuck with it for about three months before he was fired for failing a surprise pop-up drug test given by the store’s branch manager. With all of the money he had earned during his three month fried chicken venture, he was left with two dollars in his savings. He loved the feeling of earning money, and loved smoking weed, so the idea finally dawned on him – why not start selling it? So this is what he did, he began by purchasing an ounce of some dro off of his friend Brandon, who was now fully fledged in the dope game, and started flipping them to double his profit. Chris finally had some motivation and drive in his life once again and loved what he did, he was great at it. He was able to tell himself no, when he wanted to smoke some of his product, because the only thing he loved more than weed was money. (A photo taken of Christopher Turner (left), and best friend Brandon Peterson (right) during their sophomore year at Catholic High, in Baton Rouge during their 2013 school year, both aged 16 in the photograph.) Going into his sophomore school year, he had moved up from flipping half ounces and ounces, to flipping quarter pounds and eventually half pounds. He was making more money than he ever thought he could be just by selling weed, and his job as a drug-dealer took priority in his life, over attending school, even though he was just sixteen at the time. During his second year in high school, he would skip full weeks at a time, only rarely attending three days a week at tops – but even for those few days he showed up, he would go home early to get high. When he was at school, he was one of the freshest dressing kids to attend, now that he was getting money, he was cashing out on expensive brand clothing, such as Ralph Lauren t-shirts, True Religion jeans, Rock Revival jeans and Nike Air Force Ones and Jordan basketball sneakers. By the time the second semester of his tenth grade year rolled around, he just stopped showing up altogether, and eventually dropped out. By the time he was nineteen, he decided to purchase a pure bred American Rottweiler puppy. Giving the dog the name Bear, he spent lots of time training it to respect and listen to him, he would be very hard on the dog, and would often have to get physical with the dog to get it to obey him and to assort his dominance as the true alpha male. He trained it to be a guard dog, and would leave it chained up outside of his mother and his house to act as a security system, and that’s exactly what Bear did. The dog chased off trespassers coming onto their property, and would alert his owners if anybody was coming inside, barking and growling extremely loud. Chris became very attached to his dog over the years, and is waiting until Bear’s fully grown to bet on it in a dog fight, to earn some extra side cash. (Christopher’s Rottweiler, Bear at the age of six months, photo taken in Baton Rouge.) At the age of twenty, Chris’ girlfriend at the time – Briana Farris announced that she was pregnant with his daughter. Chris was offended when she told him, and they got into a very big screaming match, which led up to getting physical. He didn’t want to accept the responsibility of fatherhood, as he wasn’t mature enough to step up to the plate. By the time his daughter was born, his baby mama named the baby Mariah, and he had come to terms with being a father, and accepted responsibility. However, he still didn’t want to help raise her child. He and his baby mama still were on terrible terms, and the two couldn’t stand each other, but Chris helped financially, with providing diapers and visiting his daughter once or twice a week, bringing toys every time he saw her. Briana didn’t think this was enough though, and soon filed suit against Christopher for child support, and the suit ended in her favor – she’d be getting $500 a month from Chris. Outraged, Chris soon stopped showing up to see his daughter, as he couldn’t stomach being in the same room as his baby mama, and his visitation with his daughter turned from a few times a week, to once or twice a month. Not knowing what else to do, Chris wanted a clean slate, a fresh start - so he made a fast decision, giving it no second thought to move out of the state. He decided on the west coast, as his younger cousin Keyante Banks, his grandmother and aunt, all lived out there. However, the child support was burning a hole in his pocket, so he decided to settle on moving to Blaine County, as it was much cheaper, and he preferred the country lifestyle anyway, given he spent his whole life in the dirty South. So, on February 20th 2019, he packed up all of his belongings, as well as his Rottweiler Bear (who is now two years old, and 105 pounds) and made the 30 hour road trip from Louisiana to Blaine County to make a new life for himself. When he first arrived, he was hired at the local grocery store to workas a cashier, but lasted about a week before quitting. He hadn’t worked a real job since he was fifteen and couldn’t stand it, so he went back to what he did best. With a few ounces of drugs in his position from home, he began selling out of Blaine County, and even started to break into cars and sell them to chop shops for instant profits. Christopher’s main drive is money, and doesn’t let anything get in the way of getting it.

  8. Backstory: The natives of Paleto lived a comfortable life in the early days before European contact, having an abundance of resources and no rival tribes they lived a quiet and prosperous life, having plenty of food raging from the fish that inhabited the local rivers and ocean waters to deer and rabbits frolicking within the surrounding forests. The native people of Paleto would then come into first contact with the Europeans who happened to be from Spain in the year 1542, life as they know it would soon change drastically. With the incoming Spaniards the local natives would take a blow to their way of life and culture, having the first Spanish settlement established in 1770, this settlement would become known as "Paleto Bay". After contact with outsiders the natives would end up with a foul disease that claimed the lives of most of the tribe, in reparation to the horrendous event the colonizers would name the settlement after the main chieftain who was known as chief Paleto. As the years grew on the Europeans would eventually push their religious ideas upon the local people, forcing them into a life of Christianity. In the year of 1824 the natives of Paleto have had enough and would then begin the "Paleto Revolt of 1824". The native people would attack numerous missions and would occupy them from the Spaniards, the Paleto native warriors would hold their ground for as long as possible until the Spanish military ended up killing off many of their tribe people ranging from men, women, and even children. This would force the tribe of Paleto to surrender, making it a victory for the "white devil" Europeans. Current Day Paleto: Now fast forward to current day Paleto, the local tribe's numbers have significantly dwindled, leaving some of the neo-Paleto natives in distrust towards the government of San Andreas due to past mistreatment and social pressures, though some current day natives have completely conformed to the new ways. On top of all these past issues the native people have had, their lands have been completely taken from them and majority of the tribe have had enough. Through various protests and talks with the San Andreas government through their tribal council the native people of Paleto seek to regain their sacred tribal lands within the Chiliad Mountain State Wilderness. Behind The Flag: The Paleto Tribe flag, bearing the colors of white, red, and black dawns a single footprint as their emblem. The story behind the footprint goes that in the early days before the European conquest the local tribes people believed in a hairy beast, one with great power to protect and guard the natural environment and wildlife from the aggressors. To the natives they see him as a guardian, one who posses powers to disappear within a blink of an eye. The tribe calls him by the name of "Skookum" and they encourage people not from the tribe to go out looking for him for this hairy beast only wishes to be left alone. In the outside world everyone knows this hairy creature as Bigfoot. ______________________________________________________________________________________________ OOC Information: The aim of this faction is to bring about dynamic RP, for this faction is neither legal or illegal it is as I'd like to call it "human". We seek to realistically portray a native tribe within the region of Paleto Bay where each individual member of the tribe may do whatever legel/illegal activities that they wish. If you are interested in being apart of the tribe please feel free to PM me on the forums or on Discord. Things to note before joining the tribe is that obviously you need to be a native person from Paleto (aka a Native American) and be willing to provide RP within the area of Paleto Bay, when it comes to age ranges and or being male or female that choice is completely up to you. There are no strict themes other than the things listed above, you are free to portray your character however you may choose.

  10. The triad was a group of Chinese transnational organized crime syndicates based around China, Hong Kong, Macau and Taiwan along with other significant Chinese populations including America. During the first opium bans during the 19th century, triad involved in illegal drug trade. They would also in the counterfeit business where they would counterfeit currencies, expensive books, watches, films and designer apparel. The groups in America were less organized than the groups back home due to the government being stricter, so a good portion of the group in America became reckless causing for a majority of them to be purged by LSPD. The ones who had not gotten locked up were lost with no way to make money so they came together creating the group Highland Wah Ching in the trenches of Vinewood. After the successful purge by the Los Santos Police Department, the streets went quiet, the trouble in neighborhoods which were infected by the Wah Ching seemed to disappear, cheering up the locals when the news spread, they knew they we're being saved from the severe endangerment the Wah Ching inflicted. Although, all good things had to come to an end, and that happened when the ex triad members came back. The numbers were smaller, and the crime rates were severely reduced at the time, although this was only the start. The affiliates of Wah Ching, became disorganized because of the american government being stricter, although this only made their way in making money more dangerous way, although they weren't as careless as before. Due to the carelessness of Wah Ching, they made a lot of enemies along the way, one other popular Asian gang that they didn't get along with were Asian Boyz 1226, this sparked terror on highways, and rival neighborhoods, most members didn't see themselves exiting the bloodshed that they started taking part in. The war between these gangs sparked an increase in homicides throughout Los Santos. The most popular bloodshed that was ever committed between Wah Ching and Asian Boyz 1226 was during the ''Summer Madness'', at least 25 deaths were recorded on scene, affiliates from both sides(16 Asian Boyz, and 9 Wah Ching confirmed dead). After the bloodshed, the activity decreased. The older generation died out, and the newer one decided to take over, it also migrated to Vinewood, to receive new opportunities in unorganized crime, the numbers of the Wah Ching clique has decreased, although that means the gang is on high alert when it comes to subtracting. The clique goes under the name of Highland Wah Ching. OOC: We are planning on portraying a realistic group of adolescents and teenagers of Chinese descent. Our primary objective is to develop our characters thoroughly and progress the faction. We do not base our characters on immigrants coming straight from China due to financial instability, most of our characters are American born. However, there is no blueprint for how you should build and develop your character. If you role-play with us and plan in developing a unique and realistic character, we can assist in the form of tips and ideas. If you're interested in joining feel free to forum PM WirelessMind or nwhatifyourhomiedead. It is a must for you to send your character kill permission to the Highland Wah Ching forum name.­­­­

  11. Short description: The ability to drop your current phone, call from an anonymous number, use payphones and buy SIM cards at a 24/7 Detailed description: I'd like to see a feature, which gives us more room when it comes to the phone system. The ability to purchase a temporary sim that you can dispose of at a 24/7. For example, right now if you're trying to rob or scam someone from an /ad, there's no way you can get away with it, even though you could easily in reality. You can /turnoff phone, but law enforcement still has your phone number registered, and they'll be able to track at the very least your name and personal details from it. This would add payphones, and disposable phones for exactly that reason, anonymous and sketchy business. We could for example go into a 24/7, but a burner/new phone with a SIM and use that one. We could /dropphone it, to drop the phone. Now, with the 1.5 update where all items are unique, I personally think this fits amazingly in it. Because if you /dropphone (1,2) (depending on whether you only have 1 phone or 2), now since it's a unique phone with it's own ID number, Law Enforcement or civilians can see and pick that phone up, access the contacts, SMS and calls made unless they're deleted beforehand. The PD and forensics could lift fingerpints and other DNA from the phone unless wiped. Commands to add: /payphone, /dropphone (1,2), /takephone, /wipephone (factory reset, could take up to a minute and shot % of the progress). Items to add: adding Phone/SIM to the 24/7s. How would your suggestion improve the server?: It would greatly improve realism, as the current system gives law enforcement so many ways to track you, yet you have no scriptwise way of getting away, making yourself anonymous or wiping evidence. It'd make criminal RP a lot easier and more realistic, giving us an actual chance to get away with crimes. Additional information: It wouldn't cut into the profits made by custom phone numbers if allowed to hold two phones, plus it generates another random number, and the only reason people donate for a custom phone number is to have it custom/chosen/easy.

  12. This feature is now in-game for early availability and will be fully available in 1.5! We're not accepting any requests for the new nightclub interiors just yet. We will have more information after 1.5 has released about how they are acquired!

  17. Fixed! The average line now matches the current time even if there are duplicate times or times missing: The only thing is now because the line is more accurate it requires more calculations to be accurate. This means that LAST MONTH and ALL TIME would be very taxing on your computer when trying to load the graph (all time currently would have to load 24,000 datapoints on the map dynamically). Because of this, I have decided to disable average by default for any amount of time longer than "Last week". However, if you would like to view the average for longer amounts of time, you can select the date range you want to see under "custom time" and still be able to see averages for as long as you want. Example (The whole month of February): YOU MAY HAVE TO CLEAR YOUR CACHE FOR THIS TO WORK PROPERLY! Enjoy ?

  20. That's true but is it actually the case? Drug RP, including selling, buying and using is a very important part of illegal RP (including gangs but also civilians). It should be something that's interesting...not just for RP reasons, otherwise people will spend the money on something else. I do totally understand where you are coming from though.

  21. Thank you ? Turns out I had more time this evening than I thought. The collector script as been rewritten. Here are the changes: - Checks for duplicates within each 10 minute span - Accounts for RAGE API being down / server being down (will display a 0 on graph for times data cannot be grabbed) So now there (hopefully) won't be missing times in the graph anymore even if the repository or the server is offline. Also data points will be spaced evenly every ten minutes (within 30 seconds).
