New Citizen Guide
Welcome to San Andreas!
You just arrived at the subway station near downtown Los Santos. After a much-needed change of pace from your last city, you're ready to start fresh! On your first arrival to the city, you will start at the character selection screen. Select the first character slot and let's get your first character created.
You will be prompted with registration and character skin menu. Create a thoughtful and meaningful character name, date of birth, and height (in inches). You can then adjust your character's skin or select an NPC model to use via the "model" option. You can always change the appearance of your character at the plastic surgeon. After you have created your character you are ready to face this new city. But first, let's get familiar with how to interact with the world.
Below are the basic controls and commands to get you started. It is recommended that you use a keyboard and mouse for the best experience. Controllers are optimized and functional to use for general movement and control of your character, but will not be suitable for advanced controls, commands, and interactions.
