Below this should be three red buttons that say “Create Persona”.

Click 'Create Persona 1' to create your first character. Clicking this will bring you to a page where you will name your character, give them an age and determine what gender they will be. Once you’re done, click the green button that says “Create Persona”. Now you're ready to join the server.

Once you’re in the server, you will be brought to a character select screen. This will display all current personas. Click on “Select” for the persona you wish to login to in on.

Upon First entering the city, you will appear at the Bus Depot. In your inventory (Page Up), you'll find a "Surgery Token" by picking this up (Clicking and dragging) and moving it over you "Use", you'll enter the face sizing and skin color editor, IE plastic surgery. While in this menu you can choose a variety of combinations of traits from your mother and father. This changing the thinness or pudgyness of your face, as well as different varieties of skin colors, and options to blend the two of them.

From here you'll want to go to a couple locations on your map to customize your character. The first of these is the yellow shirt icon that signifies the location of the clothing store. Upon entering the store, you can press either E to go through the various clothing items for your character, or Q to open up the props menu for hats and glasses and such. The UP and DOWN arrow keys to choose what part of the character you’re changing and the RIGHT and LEFT arrow keys to look at the different selections. Hitting ENTER on what you have selected will change the color or type. Make sure you can cycle through "Upper Body" options in the clothing store to find a set of arms/hands/torso isn’t poking through your clothing.

The second place is the Barbershop, found by the scissor icon on the GPS. Similar to the clothing store above, you have a couple menus through Q and E to change the different things about your facial features, or what hairstyle and color you want to have, etc.

Here is a quick character creation video that showcases some of these steps, if you're a more visual person, about how to create your character :

Once you leave the Bus Station, you can a couple things right away. You can call for an Ambassador. An ambassador is someone that's been around the city for a while and has signed up to help assist new people to town. Show them the ropes per-say and work with them to understand what they want to do in the city, and point them with the right people to help them further. Say you wanna be a gang member, well an ambassador can get in contact with people they know and have you meet them, or take you around themselves and show you how do to various things, get you a job, etc.

To call for an Ambassador currently, you will look them up on Discord via this pinned post in #in-character-news-and-events to find a list of current Ambassador names and numbers, then give them a text in game to meet up with them to show you the ropes.

Bus Driving

This job is fairly self explainatory. Head down to the bus pickup station, up the street from pd. Step on the Green blip and get your bus. If you open your gps, you'll now see the available bus stops around the city. Drive your bus to one of these stops, and press G to start picking up locals at said stop. Your doors will stay open until the locals are done loading up into your bus. The first few stops will mostly be loading up people onto the bus, but afterwards locals will periodically depart from the bus first, then new one will load up onto the bus. This is when you'll get paid and get your skills for bus driving. To stop bus driving, you'll take your bus back to the station at any point and find the other Green blip near the parking lot to put your bus away.

You're practicing at getting better at being a mechanic by doing simple repair jobs across the city for locals. To do this, simply press T and type /getjob . This will put a GPS marker on your map to take you to a local in need of a repair.

You can purchase simple repair kits at Mr. Milk's Supermarket, found on the GPS via a green shopping cart icon, for $1500. This is how you repair your own cars / other people's cars. To do this, you'll want to step inside the car you want to repair with F, then step back out, open your menu with ~/æ/ø/å , then go to Vehicle, then go to Repair Vehicle. This will use up your repair kit and after a few seconds of animation, you'll repair said vehicle. Step back into the vehicle one more time, just to make sure the repair takes hold. Sometimes this is a little tricky when doing this for another player, so always double check they see their car repaired.

The Mechanic hub is where you do a majority of your crafting

This is what the place looks like and where it's located via street name. It can be found on your gps. Upon entering the hub, on your right there is a "Staff Only" door, go through here, and then through the next door to the right. Once in this back area, you'll walk up to the crafting table and press E to open up your crafting menu and see what things you can create as a mechanic. These range from things like Paint kits, to neon kits, to engine upgrades. All of which can be crafted at different levels of being a mechanic.
