Calling someone

  • Type /call [number]
    • Look at "Managing devices" if you own more than one cellphone

  • You may now wait for the person to answer the phone by typing /pickup
    • Or simply type /hangup if you are tired of waiting

  • Once the person you are calling pick up his phone the server will automatically switch your chat mode to the phone conversation
    • That means anything you type on the chat window will be sent only to the player you are talking to

  • You may also call public services like 911, look at the examples below
    • /call 911 My car is on fire (This will alert medics, firemans and cops)
    • /call mechanic (Alerts all mechanics in game)
    • /call taxi (Alerts all taxi drivers in game)

  • Calling public services will automatically trace your location and cellphone number

Sending SMS

  • Get a cellphone
  • Use /sms [number]

Using CB radio

  • Type /joinchannel [a channel number 2 - 30000) to turn your radio on
    • If you have more than one CB you may use /joinchannel [chnl number] [cb item id]

  • Check who is listening to this radio frequency by typing /cbusers
  • Then use /cb [msg] to talk
    • You may also use /chatmode [cb] to talk directly on the radio without using /cb

  • In case you get bored of listening people talking, you can turn it off by using /cboff [cb item id]

  • *NEW*
    • The /area command is now available. It allows you to track everyone in the same CB frequency.

Joining a second CB

  • Buy another CB
  • Use /joinchannel [channel number] [cb id in you invent]
  • now if you talk you will use automatically the first cb. To change use

/setdefault cb [cbID in your invent]

Managing devices

Using /setdefault [phone or cb] [item id] will define which phone or CB the server will use for /call or /cb

Examples:

  • Type /invent
Money: 233$
(0)Passport, (1)Cellphone: 20003, (2)Cellphone: 20004, (3)CB: 5, (4)CB: 333

  • Defining a default phone
    • By using /setdefault phone 2 the server would use the cellphone with number 20004 for everytime I use /call
  • Defining a default CB
    • By using /setdefault cb 4 the server would use CB on frequency 333 everytime I use /cb (applies to /chatmode)

  • Using a default item won't disable others, that means you will still be able to get phone calls on every phone you have


Adding an alarm system to your house

  • First you may buy an alarm at any business that sells electronics
  • Then use /storeitem [alarm item id] at your property
