If it’s your first time connecting to the server in a while, please take note we underwent a large update and server wide wipe. Your stories remain in tact, your assets did not.
When joining the server, you will see a ped on screen holding a sign that says “Create New Character”. You can have up to 6 character slots on TwitchRP, with options for more on the way in the future. When highlighting the “Create New Character” ped, click enter and accept the prompt.
You will be brought to a passport, where you will fill out your character name, date of birth, height and gender. Once this is done, a menu will load where you can edit all aspects of your characters appearance. If for some reason you accidentally exit the menu – open the chat box with “T” and type “/skin”, this will reopen the character customization menu.
