Getting Started in our GTA RP Server

Last reviewed: 23rd Nov 2018

TRP has a GTA roleplay server! Here’s a quick primer to get you started.

How To Apply

It’s a whitelist-only server and we run the community through Discord. Join the Discord server here.

To apply to the GTA server, head on over to the Rules page and be prepared to follow those. Then check out the GTA server rules and be sure to understand them. Then hit the Apply button at the top of this page or go here and link your Steam and Discord accounts to the website. Please ensure that the Discord account you link is the same as the one you used to join our server.

Once your application is approved, you’ll get an email and a bunch of new GTA chat channels like #los-santos-gta-general will appear in the Discord.

You’ll need Grand Theft Auto V on PC and the FiveM mod to play. Both Steam and Rockstar Social Club versions of GTA V should work fine.

Installing FiveM:

  1. Go to FiveM.net
  2. Hit “Download Client”
  3. Copy the downloaded .exe file to your preferred install location (currently requires ~650MB of space)
  4. Run it and select your GTA 5 install directory when prompted (If you use Steam, right-click on the game, Properties > Local Files > Browse local files to check your directory)

Congratulations! You’re good to go!

Mods

FiveM will automatically download everything required to play on TRP’s GTA server.

We do suggest you download and install this MapZoomData.meta file and copy it into FiveM.app\citizen\common\data\ui. Be sure to rename your original file something memorable (e.g. MapZoomData.meta.old) if you wish to revert.
