Master Account

How can I create a new character?
A new character can be created by clicking Create on an empty slot via the My Characters page. You will need to have an approved Master Account in order to do that (so you'll need to pass the roleplay knowledge quiz and submit a written application and have it accepted).

How can I delete a character?
If you wish to permanently delete a character, click the button titled Delete character account which is located at the bottom of the individual character page that you wish to delete. You need to have at least 15.000$ on your character to be able to delete it. Please do take into account that once you confirm this request, that character cannot be recovered.

I created a character before the master account panel was created, how do I retrieve it?
If you registered before the new master account system, you can still recover your old character without having to start fresh. Simply navigate to the My Characters page, click Create on one of the empty slots, and then select Add existing character. However, if you didn't log into your character account since 2011 or so, your character has most likely been wiped and cannot be recovered.

How can I change my registered email?
Go to the Settings page on the UCP and enter a new email where your current email is displayed, then confirm the change by clicking a confirmation link sent to your email inbox.

How can I change my master account password?
When logged into your master account, select Settings and then Change password.

My password doesn't work / I've forgotten my password
Go to https://redcountyrp.com/password/remind and enter your email address.

Why was my master account application denied and what should I do?
The reason why your application was denied should be specified in the email which was automatically sent to you, as well as on your User Control Panel. If you were denied temporarily then you still have a chance to correct any mistakes after the temporary denial period has expired. If your application was denied permanently, then you can appeal the denial here.

I'm a youtuber/streamer, can you give me quick access to the server?
Being a Youtuber or a Twitch streamer does not give you any advantages on our server. You will be treated the same as everyone else who wishes to join our server. Please be patient.


In-Game

Where can I find the in-game rules?
The in-game rules can be found here.

How can I contact a helper/admin in-game?
If you require assistance in-game, then use the command /assistance and describe your problem as in-depth as possible.

What is the current roleplay year in-game?
We roleplay in the present time, so the current roleplay year is 2019.

How do I get XP points and level up?
Every payday, you get XP points. To understand how to get your payday, read the question called "How can I collect my paycheck?" The amount of time you played since your last payday will influence how many XP points you get. 31 minutes is 1 XP point, 61 minutes is 2 XP, 91 minutes is 3 XP and so on. The amount of XP needed to level up depends on your current level. The formula to figure it out is your level * 10. So to become level 2 you need 10 XP, level 3 is 20 XP, level 4 is 30 XP, level 5 is 40 XP and so on. Once you get the needed amount of XP to level up, use /buylevel. This will tell you how much XP it will use and how much XP you have. If you have enough, use /buylevel confirm. Also, it's worth noting that payday experience will stack, so if you did not collect 5 paydays for example, you don't have to worry about it as you will receive all the stacked XP upon signing the next payday. You can view your playtime via /stats.

What are paychecks and how do they work?
To receive your paycheck, go to any town hall - these are located in Palomino Creek, Angel Pine, Fort Carson and Rockshore; head inside and approach the rotating yellow 'i' and use /signcheck [number] - your paycheck's unique four-digit number comes by every hour at XX:00; it will show up under the HUD of your health bar and cash counter. The money will go into your bank and you can collect it from any bank located around the counties; you can also collect it from any ATM.

Where is the DMV and how much are the tests?
The DMV is located in a little town called Montgomery. To be exact, it's behind Well Stacked Pizza Co. building, next to the VICE club. It is marked by a little a car image on your mini-map to help you find it. Here are a few pictures which I hope would be of assistance to help you find it.

First picture shows the exact location of where it is on the map. It also shows a few things around which would help you to find it if you are somehow lost.
The second picture shows the location from a third person perspective.

How do I get my own vehicle?
You can buy a car at any dealership or from another player. - There are currently 4 dealerships: Vehicle Dealership located in Dillimore, Mr. Grant's Bike Shed Dealership (motorcycles) also located in Dillimore, Hammer Down Dealership (heavy vehicles) located in Fort Carson and Victor's Vessels Dealership (boats) located in Rockshore. Exact locations of the dealerships can be found on the screenshots below.


Keep in mind, you can buy from any other player at any level - the car will be pre-owned, but that doesn't mean it isn't a vehicle you can use! You need to contact someone IC'ly by calling them after, for example, an advert has been posted, stating that someone is selling a car, or you can look out for the cars that are labeled as 'For sale', with the price attached. You can buy these types of cars by calling the number that is attached on the label.

What are the vehicle prices?
You can find a full list of vehicle prices right HERE

What kind of features do we have for vehicles?
Red County Roleplay has lots of features for vehicles. Of course, the most important feature is being able to travel from A to B, but you can also store all kinds of inventory items in your trunk (for example drugs, guns or a fuelcan). You can play music streams in your car by using /carmusic [link/stop]. You can modify your vehicle by going to any garage and typing /mod, or customise it by manually attaching objects to it via /vattachments. More commands for vehicle purposes can be found by using /help vehicle in game.

Note: Every 500 miles you drive you need to change your oil. An icon will appear on the speedometer letting you know that you have to change the oil. You can change your engine's oil by buying Supreme Engine Oil in the Palomino Creek Garage. After that you need to open the hood of your vehicle by using /hood and use the command /changeoil afterwards.

How can I refuel my vehicle?
Your can refuel your vehicle at any gas station around Red County, Bone County or Angel Pine. Once you are near the gas station you can use the command /refill petrol/diesel depending by the vehicle you use. You can use the command: "/einfo" in order to get the type of fuel your vehicle needs. If you have an aircraft, you may refuel at the Aviation Gas Station at the Abandoned Airport. If you have a boat, you may refuel at the Rockshore Docks Gas Station in Rockshore, Las Venturas.

My vehicle/bike ran out of gas and I'm not near a gas station, what should I do?
This happens a lot in the server, but luckily we have a solution for this! You can buy a fuelcan from any general store, then visit any gas station and use the command /refillfc. Once you've done that you can walk back to your vehicle and use the command /fuelcan whilst inside your vehicle. You may also call for a mechanic through the number "118" and someone should attend to your call.

I can't find my vehicle anymore, what should I do?
You can create an /assistance and ask for a Helper/Admin to locate your vehicle.

My vehicle is damaged, what shall I do?
In order to repair your vehicle you have to bring it to a garage. Once you are at the garage you need to drive towards the "I" sign and use the command /repair. You might notice that it asks you what kind of repair you want, it's up to you what you want to repair. Keep in mind that repairing your vehicle depends on the damage of the vehicle, the higher the damage, the higher the price will be. If your vehicle broke down completely, in order to get your vehicle to a garage you can try to call a mechanic. The mechanic hotline is 118. Once you've called the hotline, a mechanic should hopefully call you back and tell you they are coming to tow your car. Sometimes it may occur that a mechanic isn't available and unfortunately you can't do anything with your vehicle then, you have to leave your vehicle behind and continue your way on-foot.

What kind of side-jobs do we have?
Red County Roleplay has a total of 6 side-jobs, currently we have the sweeping, trucking, coal mining, delivery, trash collecting and bus driving side-jobs. Side-jobs are a great way to earn money, some side-jobs pay better than the rest, however thry may take longer than the low-paying side jobs. You can also level-up in a certain side-job, in order to do so you need to keep doing the side-job until you've finished it enough times. The amount of points in order to level up can be seen by using /jobs. Once you level-up in a certain side-job, you will earn a bit more money once you finish that side-job, also the spam timer will decrease by 5 minutes every time you level up.

I can't seem to find the side-jobs, where are they?
Sweeping is located in Palomino Creek, Trucking is located in Blueberry, Pizza Delivery is located in Montgomery, Coal mining is located in Bone County (Hunter Quarry), Trash Collecting is located in Bone County (Octane Springs) and Bus Driving is located in Blueberry. For a more accurate location you have to ask around ICly. You can also use /gps --> set destination ---> first 5 things that'll appear are the side-jobs. Side-jobs are also marked on your minimap with a red flag.

What kind of jobs do we have?
Red County Roleplay has a total of three jobs - the Maintenance, Mechanic and Taxi Driver job. Jobs are another great way to earn money or to fill up your empty time. You will also get some extra money on your payday once you got a legal job. You can only choose one job and if you want to quit your job you can use the command /quitjob. However you've to wait 30 minutes until you can get another job. You can get a job by visiting their HQ and walk over to the Briefcase sign and use the command /getjob. Remember that having a job scriptwise doesn't mean that you have to do it - you can do it whenever you feel like it. Job related commands can be found on /help job.
