When you type '/jobduty on'. A message is being publicly announced for the players which represent that your character is on taxi-duty and they can contact the taxi hotline if they require transportation from A to B.



Players will contact the Cabbie Corporation using the hotline, 444. When they do, all the on-duty taxi drivers will have this message.

When the dispatcher enters your vehicle, you will receive a confirmation message and a reminder to activate the fare using the command /meteron.



When the player enters the vehicle, you can ask for his drop-off location IC'ly and start transporting to their said location - During the journey, you can interact with the passenger and socialize.

After arriving at your passenger's location and they exit your vehicle. They'll automatically pay you the fare they owed for the journey.



The checkpoint on the map is the caller and not the waypoint where the call was originated at. If you feel that the caller is moving with an alternative method of transportation or forgot to /canceltaxi. You can use the command '/clearcaller [ID]'.





As mentioned above any four-door vehicle can be used for the job.

Any vehicles (excluding the taxi and cabbie) consisted with four-doors require the taxi sign from /vattachments - A guide regarding /vattachments can be found here.



Above is a perrenial. This vehicle is being used for the taxi job - In order for that to happen, there should be a taxi sign mounted on top of it. '/jobduty on' will not work unless there's a taxi sign mounted on the vehicle.

When you have done opening /vattachments and chosen the slot you want to use for the taxi sign, you will see the list of /vattachments that are compatible with your vehicle. You will need to go to page three on the list, and you will spot the two available taxi signs. One is the regular taxi sign and the other is the Black taxi sign.



After selecting any of the two taxi signs, you will have to re-position them. If you're having problems re-positioning them or confused with the system, simply follow this guide.



Your vehicle will now look like this. From here on you are entitled as a taxi driver, and you can progress with '/jobduty on' and proceed in doing the job.​




Mechanic

The mechanic job is currently located at the Dillimore Repair Garage.




Near the yellow 'i' icon where /repair command is being used, you will see a floating briefcase icon. There you can obtain the mechanic job using the command /getjob.






To pursue a career as a mechanic, a vehicle is not compulsory. Although, the suggested vehicle is mainly the tow-truck which can be purchased for $35,000 from the Dillimore Automotive Dealership. The reason as to why the tow-truck is not compulsory is because the majority of the features the job hold doesn't require one.
The times when a mechanic requires a tow-truck is when there are callers in-line waiting for their vehicle to be towed to a repair garage.​



After obtaining the job using the command '/getjob confirm' from the job spot mentioned above, you have access over to the job's commands which is listed on '/help job'.​


  • /spray or /colorcar - This command is used to change the vehicle's color from the driver seat of the vehicle.
  • /offerspray - This command is used to offer a change of colour for the vehicle from the owner - For this, the mechanic should have entered as a passenger and the driver should be present at the driver seat.
  • /repair - This command isn't restricted to mechanics anymore. Owner of the vehicle can type out the command at any repair garage to have their vehicle repaired. Mechanics cannot repair the vehicle, they can only tow them to repair garages.
  • /nos - This command is used to install a nitrous system on the vehicle. It costs $50 to install. Few lines of RP have been provided below for mechanics to use when installing the nitrous system.
  • /hyd - This command is used to install Lowrider Hydraulics to your vehicle. It costs $500 to install. Few lines of RP have been provided below for mechanics to use when installing the hydraulic system.
  • /tow - This command is used to attach the vehicle onto the truck's hook.
  • /detach - Command used to detach the vehicle.
  • /viewmechaniccalls - This command is used to browse through all the pending mechanic calls.
  • /clearmechaniccall - This command is used to clear a caller from /viewmechaniccalls.


Similar to the taxi job, there isn't any command publicly announce whether you are on-duty or not. Whenever you are a mechanic and in-game, you are considered on-duty. You will randomly get notifications whenever someone contacts the mechanic hotline. Such as the one below.



To further browse the caller's information, the command /viewmechaniccalls needs to be inputted.



Upon typing out the command, you will have access to the caller's phone number and the service they require.

A tow-truck isn't necessary for services such as Oil change, respray, installing a nitrous system, installing hydraulics.

A tow-truck is mainly required when there are calls asking for a vehicle tow - This is one of the most common services required by the players.

For example:


  • Few passive RP that can be used when towing a vehicle:


  • Detaching the hook:


  • Installing NOS system
