  1. So I thought I should bring this up since its been talked a lot amongst ourselves but not really brought up, properly discussed and changes/ improvements being made. As we all know, turf gangs are required to provide the best quality rp in the server, hence why they receive turfs, custom clothing/ weapons etc. However, we all are aware that the turf gang quality has been very low compared to whats expected, and lots of player reports/ bans have been put in place. I am very sure im not the only one who thinks this. We can see it from recent events, all ranging from mere kidnappings (which are poor, considering people just grab someone, kill and dump) to all out wars which the reasons behind it is childish (Tweedle beef = war, chat shit = war). I believe turf gangs are now friend groups with matching outfits, trying to protect their ego which if people disrespect them even a tiny bit, will result in death. In reality, turf gangs should provide high quality rp for the whole server, making great storylines that provide interesting outcomes, like writing a book and directing a movie as whatever people do, there are always people watching. Easiest example is when gangs fight on tweedle, the whole server reads it and watches the fight. Im sure everyone spectating have the same thought. "Is this the high quality rp of turf gangs?". If the current RP quality of turf gangs is considered the highest, then the bar is set too low. Turf gangs are the rolemodel for other gangs that have no turf, since RPUK is a gang based server, its all about gangs. This poor RP cycle will never stop because as new people join the server, they watch these gangs do what they do, and follow their footsteps. New recruits to gangs follow whatever the members/seniors/leaders do. The turf gang lore has yet to be updated and personally I think it needs to be revised. Turf gangs should have an interesting history, which then makes interesting present and future events to happen. I dont think the current gangs are really embodying their lore and showing their identity. The only thing that separates the gangs are the colors and thats it. They should have different cultures, traditions, or whatever makes them unique but currently its just whoever has the most money, best cars, most guns, most members etc. I think every turf gang needs a pause to stop and discuss their future. Are you giving the highest quality RP on the server ? Are you making sure everyone is enjoying what you do, making interesting RP scenarios, instead of just making sure you win every single situation? Are you striving to create interesting stories/ events that would be remembered instead of treating an RP server like an RPG, collecting every single thing you can and maxing everything to be "On Top" ? (No problem with grinding but I think turf gangs should put making interesting RP scenarios their highest priority, and putting money etc second). Maybe what the server needs is a month or two of "turf gang revision", where turf gangs review their lore, review their members on how everyone should act, their organizational structure like who is leading and what not. A period where turf gangs can prove that they deserve the turf because they are able to provide the high quality of RP that is expected. I'm just here voicing out my concerns because I love the RPUK community and I want everyone to be able to enjoy this server as much as I do. We all want to have fun here and I think if the factions/ turf gangs that are expected to give the highest RP quality can do so, then im sure everyone will benefit from it and RPUK will continue to be the best RP server in the UK and Europe. The question is though, how are you gonna spend your time ?

  7. Hey T. good point and yes, would be lovely with more jobs, more options.. but tbf, they pay pretty good tho.. i made a new character, to see how bad it was.. (cause "Nadine" is doing good, so i did not feel any of the jobs issues) and i must say.. i had her for a week now.. i have 300k in my bank, an apartment for 70k and a speedo van (62k stock) + a Baller (60k private sale).. so its not THAT hard to live, u just need to put some work and RP in to it what i did was: day 1. Food deliveries (£300- £500 pr job, fast and cheap in rented food car) till i had money for taxi license.. day 2. get license, rent a taxi and went driving NPC's around. (paid me between 1.5k and 3.5k pr NPC job, found a gas station on Alta street that has low fuel price (£6 petrol) and one in sandy's with even lower fuel price (£4 petrol) so it did pay egnough for fuel and food etc) day 3. Got tired of taxi, spend money on Mechanic license, then started to lvl up (2,5k pr NPC job). Bought my Baller from Rocco (Grove/ vagos car sale) day 4 and 5. lvl my mechanic, made 100k ish pr lvl. bought my Speedo van from Bosh trucking, when i got tired of mechanic and needed a break, i went to the mine to get mining skill on coal, then smeltet it and dumped it (no one buy coal coke) day 6. hit max mechanic and lvl 1 mining / smelting.. i got 5k pr mechanic job and i spend a few hours on that. when tired i went mining for iron, smelted it, found a fella in RP who wanted to buy my ingots for 200 a piece.. (had my 250 storage van, so easy 50k a van) day 7. found a apartment by asking on tweedle.. boom, ready to stock up more meterials to sell for a fair amount of price.. i know i have a lot of time during the day.. so its a lot faster for me.. but add another week to it, and its do able for everyone it's not that hard to make money legit.. a bit boring YES! but not impossible.. i would loooove to see more types of legal jobs.. Trash trucks, actual people in resturants or shops, mechanics or postmail? anything cause yes, it gets boring after a week or two unless u have a goal.. if no long termed goal is set, then u are fucked if u don't have any decent RP'ing people around u in there Much love

  8. This is something that is actively being worked on since recently. Various gangs have been given the opportunity to come up with some ideas to make their storyline and "lore" more unique and make the roleplay more interesting for all parties involved. There will be more opportunities like this given to other groups that are seen giving high quality roleplay and creating unique experiences for everyone around them.

  12. I have questions about the direction the city is taking? I would like to open with the statement that I am by no means disparaging the RPUK server. I am merely voicing my concern and wondering if I am Missing something. Are we trying to force the majority of players who aren't NHS, Police or super Rich business owners in to the life of crime or gang life? The reason I ask this is because The majority of legitimate work now costs the employee money to perform. My examples, Trucking : Fuel deliveries are not profitable (if they even pay at all) Taxi driving : The fuel cost outweighs the fair payment. Fruit Picking : Doesn't Ripen so unusable. Fishing : Profit - Time Spent has become non profitable. Park Ranger : Is the most reasonable option however the progress is very slow and still the fuel for the truck costs more than the payments as the journeys are huge. however there are still unusable items (Leather) which have no use. The only people now to be able to make an honest living are, NHS, Police or Those who are already rich and own a business. There does not seem to be any viable "Legal" Jobs to make an honest living. I am very interested to hear if anyone has any feedback on this topic. Many Thanks Thanatos

  15. I always stay away from gangs, though I've found that individuals are nice. Gangs feel like they are very inclusive and unapproachable if you want to join them, though I've only interacted with a few so that might not be true for all of them. Their wars can make it interesting for the NHS as at one point we were told to not help curtain gangs and to have body cams at all times. Half the city was off limits for us as their war started in the north then moved down the city. I felt bad though, for any Civs that got in the crossfire. I think overall that the idea of them having meets and going over a gang code, culture and how they interact with the rest of the city is a good idea. They do blur into one entity just with a different colour sometimes. I think that the gang that felt most unique was the Apostles as you always said goodbye to them with "God Bless", they are very religious and they seem generally nice during my interactions with them.

  16. A bitter, bitter pill to swallow. Being a Marmite Miner in 2015 was genuinely- without meaning to sound pathetic- one of the greatest joys of my life, and the memories that we made as a group- from the Great Marmite War to San Miguel's Birthday Bash and everything inbetween- will stay with me forever. I will also have to grudgingly admit that a certain George that happens to be quite Unlucky also contributed to a lot of the fun I had on Altis back in the day (although I still don't appreciate being forced to swim across the Altis ocean for the sake of a 30 second clip in a video). Also a mention to KLR, who Owen and I played with a fair amount in more recent times. On an unrelated note... don't suppose anyone knows where one might be able to purchase a hard hat and some Marmite in Los Santos, do they?

  18. I think it’s unfair to say the devs don’t care. Don’t forget Recon has taken on a server where every other man is a millionaire had 5 expensive cars and an arsenal in his house. Gangs had unlimited potential for gun making and high amounts of stock. it takes time for all of this to dwindle to a point where long standing players are a lot closer to the normal baseline of other players. It isn’t the kind of game where you can do a reset or a fresh start. regarding the vehicle changes this is one of the major foundations of the city so it was important for them to balance it and update it. The same with the clothing. It is a standard feature that needed more attention. Besides, they have dedicated devs so it’s not like all the devs are sitting around making TShirts. the problem isn’t the amount of money jobs pay the problem is how much this is relative to car sale prices, shop prices and gun prices. But this almost an impossible thing to fix when it is a dynamic evolving economy based around the players. If people can and will pay for an evo at a £1mill then they will and that’s gonna be the price. There’s only so much devs can do and it’s a better idea to try and bring the richest people down closer to the median that it is to try and raise everyone else up to meet the richest.

  20. Today myself and the three individuals I have names went around advertising a new Crypto Currency known as "Baro Coin™". In our adventure we allowed people to invest into this currency and told them everything they need to know about making money in the modern age and future proofing themselves for when paper and metal have no value. Noah was our main speaker and his description of the coin and what it can do for you in the future had me in tears you could tell as much as he knew it was pointless he was invested incredible RP from him as always. Albert and Father both persuading people to invest as well and convincing them it was a good idea had my dying to as those around us knew what they were getting themselves into. Thank you boys for the experience had a right laugh and got a small amount of body cam of it. Also Noah and Albert hope your job roles are still good after we were arrested for advertising in legion.

  23. I do agree with some of the stuff being said that gangs do need to provide the highest quality RP in the server and it is true considering the amount of stuff gangs can do in and around the city. I feel that that not all fault can go onto gangs and the RP given. I started off a padrino as was involved in lots of quality of RP scenarios whether it was gun selling, drug selling and many more. I've also recently had the time to join Vagos now. I know most gangs do strive to deliver high quality RP I know that always the case when I was a padrino and also now as a member of Vagos. There is time when people make mistakes etc and the RP isn't the best but I class that down to human error personally or sometimes just being caught in the heat of the moment. I personally think there is a bigger problem that causes the gangs to have "bad RP" which is the amount of money gangs can generate. The perfect example of this is multiple gangs or mc's in the city owning, shops, clubs, gas stations, dealerships etc. This then creates a huge income for them to have the money to buy guns etc. I tried in between my time from leaving the padrinos and joining Vagos to go fully legit and create an organization that worked in the mining and smelting industry but unfortunately there isn't enough oppurtunity to build these storylines or grow legit businesses due to prices of buying property and extraudanary and sometimes completely overpriced. For example a business in city should cost more than maybe a business out of city to buy, however this is not the case due to the people owning either wanting to make high amounts of money or not wanting to sell and collect businesses around the city like they are playing monopoly. In regards to the war stuff I totally agree the reason some of the wars happen are stupid and sometimes start over people chatting shit on tweedle. There should be more RP behind the wars and good storylines. I feel though that sometimes these wars are personally ruined though by police stopping them or trojan coming into a scene and always wanting to win no matter the risk is for them. Perfect exmaple of this, was the other day at the airport there was a 3v2 gang fight and then it turned into 3v2 gangs +police coming and deciding to go KOS on people. The risk factor of the police that where there, to KOS 5 different gangs there I personally think was to high and they should have waited and collected evidence then when the scene was safe allowed gone in and dealt with the injured and then investigated into what happened etc. I was at the airport shootout and I was about to get saved by a friend and he got shot by the police for trying to save myself and his friend when he didnt even shoot at the police or nothing. I think we can blame the gangs for their RP but we also need to look into factors about police RP and maybe more oppurtunities for normal people wanting to RP and not be in a gang as well, stuff like more jobs, new businesses etc.

  24. How Far Down The Rabbit Hole My LIFE is at risk reporting the strange events happening in Los Santos. We have all noticed the change in our cars over night and the insane increase in price for modding our vehicles. Then out of nowhere, the council run mechanic shops and ammunition shops have been closed with no warning. Is this a sign a underground group is controlling how we live our lives or due to laws, these shops have broken them and are finally being held accountable for it. I have been driving around in a undercover car to talk to locals about what they think about what has happened. Many people are saying the same thing, "WTF, my car has been fucked", but this is not everyone. Some of the people in the racing scene have said i love it as now more of the cars are on a level playing field but everyone said "WTF how did the council mechanics do this over night". The biggest issue at the moment is the closure of the Council run Mechanic shops and ammunition shops as many business are struggling. So many people are buying cars and would like the change the colour and even upgrade the car for better control but just cant. The new Mechanic shops that have open which are not run by the council are struggling as the influx of customers for repairs but people begging them to upgrade their cars which they have to turn down. With the ammunition being also closed many shop owners are struggling to by equipment like pool ques, hammers, Wrenches and even knifes. They have spoke out as if shop needs these tool but cant, how can they earn money to feed their family's. The private hired security teams have been hit the most due to their work they need knife and bullet proof armour. A few firms have had to file for bankruptcy due to these issues. Some of the quotes i have got from local business and groups are. Special T - I have seen people in Black cars and suits driving about, must be MI5 or something. This is not normal and we have to keep a eye out. Jason - Due to an error at parliament, an omission saw legislation pushed in that meant any commercial building with more than 100 cable ties committed an offence. As such, with bennies using cable ties for everything had an abundance of stock and the staff arrested under these new powers. - I will have to look into this but i think he is fucking with me. Joe King - Fuck knows but you do want to buy a R34. What ever the council mechanics team have done i love the handling of my car now. Miguel - I dont give a shit about Benny's fuck them come to Auto Exotic, Auto Care and Tire Nutz for the best repairs. - rather harsh response. Nadine - I am not too bothered as we offer the repairs and car care the city needs but would love to Tune customers cars. Ballas - WTF is this over priced bullshit. I want to customise our cars. Triads - Its so odd that they closed with no warning there must be something sneaky happening. Apostles - All you need is faith and god, dont worry about these superficial things. Vargos - No comment other than can we have some storage Random Racist dude - Their immigrant workers must of been sent back so they had to close. A Karen - I heard that they had African child soldiers working in the shops ready to take over the city and the SAS had to take out the shops. Tin Foil Hat Hobo - its the lizard people, they are all around us. You need to look at who is benefitting from this situation. This is where my search went to next i looked at the none council run Mechanic shops. Many people are raving about these shops for their low prices and great repairs. The shops are Auto Exotic, Auto Repair, Tire Nutz. These shops are making a killing before the other shops closed but now they are taking over all repairs in the city. Did they do something to the workers in the other shops or is it just a coincidence. The owners Nadine of Auto Exotic, Ghost of Auto Care and Miguel owner of Tire Nutz have all been or worked for dangerous gangs. If you look up their criminal record it does show they can do dangerous things. Did they use their old connections to take out the competition?. ( The Tin Hat Hobo did say that Miguel is a shape shifter, changing his appearance from white to brown). They were also pictured at the Midnight crew and Tsuchiya Legacy racing event yesterday. There has been chatter about a group called Legion running the city from the underground and controlling what we do and how we live our lives. There are rumors that they are blackmailing the council for something sinister which at the moment we are not sure but with the help from Texan Weazel news, we might have solved it. They were about to stumble across one of their hideouts. They even have a fortune teller at hand so we know you cant trust them. I even found a working bomb which i believe will be used to take out the closed shops or any shop or building in the city. This is Miguel signing out keep your eyes open and be safe.

  29. I feel like what’s most needed is a change of mentality. Lots of people on the server try to RP their very best but some people treat it like it’s not worth it, boring, useless or even “cringe”. People aren’t supporting the ones who are trying to RP and make things interesting, instead treating the server like a normal GTA server where you min/max everything for your own convenience. For example, people try to RP having mechanic shops where they repair and wash cars for you, but only some people support them. The others just think “I don’t need that I have my own repair kits and wash cloths why would I even bother going to them it’s a waste of time”. I understand if the devs make it compulsory for people to go to shops and get rid of repair kits, then people will go to them. Currently everyone has freedom in the server to do any RP they want, but if people don’t support it then it’ll just vanish and go back to people doing things for their own benefit, trying to be on top and the best individual/ group in the server, instead of talking to people and having fun which is the whole point of an RP server. Other examples like some people don’t go through the court system or try and attend a trial cause they think it’s boring and cringe. How can it be better if no one is supporting it ? Also RP with NHS where some people might think “Yeah yeah just revive me so I can get going” We should all support one another cause everyone is trying their best to do quality RP and make sure people have fun and enjoy themselves.

  30. The server is going in the right direction in my opinion, with the most recent updates coming out, like the car update (still needs balanced, but Its a good start). What I'd like to see is less people hanging around turfs and roleplay in other places, I understand " PROTECT WHERE I LIVE" but there is so much more to see and roleplay around on this server. When I go around and see 10-20 around a single area, day after day, in a circle talking. It gets boring. Give people a reason to go to other places, maybe a paintball arena, gives people another way to blow off steam instead of shooting in wars instead. ( the racing track was a good idea, gives the car enthusiasts something to do). More legal jobs, Farming, Royal Mail, Mechanics, Working at Burger Shot or other restaurants.

  36. I definitely agree with this, every time I have tried going the legal way I end up neck deep in drugs, dealers and guns in my face. I really wish they would be more profitable as it's unfair to people who just want to live normal lives outside of crime. This is still a great server but I just wish that aspect should be addressed somehow to make it more fair and welcoming to new people.

  40. Talking about the future of the server, I wanna add something that I miss. Autocare I miss the old Autocare and the social hub that the players created in there. We had car meet ups, raffles and the owners would always source a few new cars everyday. The place would always be busy ranging from new to old players in the server. When I bought my first car, it was a big deal for my character. I had to wait days before Mick could source it, when it finally got in he let me test drive it, he talked about it gave me the experience that many new players don't get anymore. It's a small piece in the puzzle but things like these, made the feel the sense of progression in the city. It made me log back into the server to check what's happening in Autocare today and it made me excited to come back. I don't like how restocks happen on the 3rd of every month. I don't like how people line up in dealerships to buy the car only to re sell it for profit the day after. I don't like how dealership owners can't list modified cars anymore (or just cars from the player-base in general). I don't like how we have so many duplicate cars making them feel not unique anymore.

  41. The Start - 1987 - The Hustlers was first originally started in 1987 by Dwayne Forge. He was a drug lord and criminal mastermind when it came to outplaying the law and ruling the streets. His strategy you ask? None, he came, took what he wanted, and won every situation. The Rise - 1991 - Sparked the start of the greatest year and accomplishments for The Hustlers. 03/March/1991, Dwayne gains control of North Holland. 18/April/1991, Dwayne takes control of East Holland. 23/September/1991, Dwayne finally after a long, bloody battle with the NorthWood Gang, takes full control of Northwood. Making him the strongest and largest crime group. With his success in selling crack cocaine, he makes over 50,000$ a week, resulting in being the richest criminal to have ever existed. The Downfall - 1998 - Dwayne Forge was arrested under the Misuse of Drugs Act, when 11 Tons of CC was found on a cargo ship that he controlled. It was also found out that a close friend of Dwayne, named Jayvon Simson, was a NCA informant. Dwayne Forge was sentenced to 30 years, without chance of Parole. The Split - 2004 - While Forge was in prison, The Hustlers fell hard, with the police actively looking for any Hustler member, and even the civilians starting to hunt them down, It was looking like a hopeless attempt at getting the Hustlers back up again. However, somehow some high ranking members of The Hustlers made a meeting with Ex-Northwood Gang members, creating the Idea to become allies and rebuild their criminal empire. However the NWG’s did not like the idea and of course wanted to become their own gang again. The high ranking members then had a dispute regarding what to do, with the dispute being so dramatic and violent, and members wanting power. The unthinkable happened. With the entirety of Hustlers going into a gang civil war. Every Senior became a Baron, owning their share of members of The Hustlers. With this civil war, they could be at great risk of being wiped. Current standing on the Hustler split are 3 versions of the Hustlers, ( NorthWood Hustlers, East Island Hustlers, North Holland Hustlers.) Truce - 2005 - Northwood Hustlers leader (Marlon Bridges) began thinking about the future, as of now he had 2 fights with the others and knew that it was pointless. Instead he reached out to Playboy X (Leader of East Island Hustlers) and Tyler Pickrel (Leader of North Holland Hustlers) and set up a meeting. During the meeting Bridges and Pickrel were agreeing on having a truce, whilst handling the gang named Spanish Lords, but PlayBoy X was not having it, instead deciding to threaten Bridges, and Pickrel. But after some convincing, Playboy X agreed and officially a truce and alliance was made. Unification - 2014 - 9 Years after the truce and alliance was signed. Playboy X was assassinated, a new person was given power to the strongest gang Liberty City and the United Kingdom have ever seen, the growth and strength of East Island Hustlers was so powerful, that they controlled the economy in Liberty City. The new leader was a well trusted, proven, and highly skilled/intelligent person named Kyle James. James was considered by Bridges and Playboy X to be a Criminal genius. When given power, he immediately went for the futuristic ideas and promises that he delivered. The first promise being worked on as soon as he was chosen. His plan? Unify The Hustlers again. He sent a referendum to the /North Holland Hustlers and Northwood Hustlers\ Both gangs submitted making James at the age of 24, the strongest gang leader the world has ever seen. Thinking Ahead - 2021 - With Kyle James in power, the strength of The Hustlers has been unpredictable and strikes fear on those who do not support them. Edam (Trusted Advisor of The Hustlers) gave him an idea of expanding, recently Kyle has seen footage of Los Santos, with that spark of curiosity and interest, he made his way down and immediately took the decision on expanding his business and gang to Los Santos whilst having control over Liberty City. With this in mind, what will happen next? Kyle stepped down in Early June 2021 - under him was two power hungry rats renowned to be Billy Stevens an known CID informant & Ryan Carling also an informant (they both planned to take down all gangs down from the inside with one or two contacts in the Ballas) Everything Kyle built without any support for months on end gone to waste because of some want to be gangsters, they're not real Hustlers, they were so hungry for power they've ruined the name of the hustlers. (They will tell anyone anything they can to reassure them they built any empire when they contributed nothing but pain and a bad name on the gang.

  43. I understand everyone's frustration with the lack of legal jobs. I am one of those people and my Character Miguel has done everything he can in the city to find a stable fun rp job. many of the good jobs like trucking and fishing were ruined by shit people that just exploited when they can or caused mayhem for others. There needs a overhaul with all the jobs really and a new look at what new jobs can be brought into the city, Trucking should be changed so every storm they can deliver once to each of the fuel station for 10k and maybe 5k for standard runs. For taxis they are ok just need to make sure local cars are harder to get into so when we spawn at random places we can call up taxis and maybe give more cash out for the npc jobs. food delivery i would not change same as park ranger and impound work. With impound give the option for the public to ask for impounds for local cars as they are broken down to help clean up the roads. To get use out of the pilot licence there should be crop farming jobs over grape seed or pick up cargo from sandy shores or that island at the bottom right of the map. For the criminal side gun or drug runs. these jobs should be alert base so you sign in and wait for a job to pop up and you go and do it. For the criminal side, have it that only at night these jobs pop up and police are alerted to a run but they dont know where the pick is from or drop off and they cant hang around the airports waiting they need to be in a helicopter to spot them. Prospecting jobs where you get a random area to look for gold chains, phones, rare ores and other stuff. these items can be sold at pawn shops and the jewellery store. Once you reach lvl 3 you can by diving equipment as you get areas in the water to check out to find stuff. With the jewellery shop opening again criminals can have a change to rob it, lets say once a hour. What Nadine and myself have done off our own backs is start up mechanic shop jobs and we have hired workers and what we might get a day after paying for supplies is 5k to 15k profit and that is all depending on if we are working solo and who tips and if anyone turns up. There are days where i just make even due to the supplies but my team are making ok money but with these jobs its all about the rp and they are becoming the new hubs for people to have fun and relax. With the way we are running our shops our mechanics are always around and they look forward to jumping on. I have had days with just rping with lots of people and not even one car getting fixed. What i am hoping for with the mechanic shops is to be able to 1. Buy materials from the miners to make parts for cars so when you break your car it will says you need this and that and we can make them and then repair. 2 Customise cars so benny's can go but keep it there for simple repairs. 3. Make custom licence plates and fake plates for the criminal/ racing scene. 4. have tow trucks bring players to use for repairs. 5. have only jump cables to get broken cars up and running until they come to us for a full repair. this should stop the unrealistic driving part of the server where you just break down and have a fully repaired car even with cop chases. To people that have a idea for a job it might be best to go out and do it as i bet a lot of people are thinking of the same thing and when they see that idea happen you will get customers and money if thats what you want but if its rp people will flock to it. if you are thinking you need millions to get this started you are wrong i only had 100k when i started my shop and i in my account i have about 200k and thats over a month of doing this.
