Hello, this guide will be helping you to start on EpicRow.
THIS IS WIP: Images and a few more details will come with time, so be sure to check it daily!

First, do not forget that our community is friendly and won't hesitate to help you if you have any questions! Ensure to be in global chat in order to asks questions to everyone connected on the server. To verify that you are in the global chat, do "/language" and select "English". Please refrain from using other languages than english, which is the main language of the server, in the global chat. If you want to ask a question in your own native language, do "/language" and select the proper chat.

You start at the base located in the zone 69, which is the first base you can access of the server. Once you'll hit level 20, you will be able to either:

-Set your home in the 2nd (located at San Fierro docks) and 3rd (located at Los Santos docks) bases
-Set your home in squad bases (located in Las Venturas, by blue areas on the map (F11))
-Set your home in the VIP club (disk icon in Los Santos)

Your objectives as a new player will be:
-To kill as much zombies as possible to get a good budget to begin with. You can configure your zombies with the "F2" key, but you should stick with the default parameters for your start. The best technique to farm money by killing zombie is to head to the oil tank zone located beneath the 1st base in the map (F11) after buying a few grenades. Then, what you have to do is simple; you need to go on one of the 4 oil tanks and wait for zombies to spawn under you, to then kill the whole group with a single grenade. This technique can give you 3000$(approximative zombie reward x 60 (max zombie count)) - 150$ (price of a grenade), so a total of 2750$ in ~5 minutes of AFK.

/!\ Don't forget that, in order to do this technique at its best potential, you may want to set your zombie limit to 60, in the "F2" menu.

-To make friends that will become your team mates and will help you to fight global zombies (see more informations under) and bosses. In addition to that, you can join a squad which will be a very good help since your squad can answer all your questions as a beginner and also help you to start out by either giving you tips or money

/!\ DO NOT ask for in-game items by an annoying/disrespectful way, if someone says no, just respect his choice. Not respecting this can result in punishments.

There are two groups of zombies, Local and Global. You can switch between those groups in your zombie options panel (F2).

/!\ Local zombies can be only seen by you and Global zombies are visible to every player in the server.
