The Business Guide & FAQ's
« on: May 02, 2008, 11:12:54 pm »
  • Can I capture a company from multiple locations?
- Yes And No, some companies like Pizza Stack and Cluckin' Bell can be captured from multiple outlets however only one person can own them all. Other businesses can only be captured in one point (4dragons, planning dept, etc).

  • Is investing profitable?
- Yes this is a long term investment that pays large dividends over time, however you must stay logged in to benefit from these. Once you log out you lose control of your businesses (and the money you put into them). Therefore, if your planning on logging out, sell your businesses and reclaim your money before you go (Side note: If you happen to crash but you log back in within the 5 minute time frame you will rejoin with the money in your pocket).

  • If someone buys my properties or I sell, will I lose the money I put into it?
- No the total sum you bought it for is returned to you when someone buys out your company. If you sell you will regain your invested money and will keep what you earned from the time you controlled the company in question.

  • Damn it! People keep buying my properties, what can I do?
- Ohh its always a bitch isn't it? People grab your companies before you reap little reward from them. Well there are 2 choices: either you can blow them away for it or try taking the businesses that are out of the way from normal traffic flow. Businesses have a "Locked" time where players can't buy them. However, once the time runs out, people can grab them, so you're better off picking the businesses in Los Santos or away from popular traffic if you want to hold them for a while. As let's face it, most people are lazy bums and they don't want to travel.

  • Are their any other benefits to owning businesses?
- Well its tough to say, it varies from property to property. But I can confirm that the Shithole Bar gives you 100$ every time someone picks up that beer between the tables lol. And the strip clubs gives you 25$ per second (weather your owner or not) if you dance inside the club between certain times.

  • How long between Investment Bursts Is It?
- Usually the company you own dishes out its profit value between 5-15 minutes. this varys from server to server but 5-15 minutes is approximately what your server does.

  • Damnit! I keep getting killed by random noobs with lots of cash on me!
- If you buy your properties in LV there's a high chance you might die in one unlucky explosion due to all the chaos there, many properties are also located in LS, where there are also a few banks to deposit your cash, and ammunations to get guns if you have to defend yourself from a stalker.

  • This is totally unfair! I got banned for cash and I had properties.
- When you have properties you cannot pause even to look at the map, because any cash you recieve while paused will show up as Unknown increases to us and it looks like Cash hacking. Also, if you have lots of lag, it's very possible the staff will get alerts from your cash increases and you might be wrongfully banned.

  • How do I see the list of properties that are bought and the ones that aren't?
- While in-game type in the command /p and insert a number 1-4 and you'll get the lists of properties there are and who currently owns them.

  • How much do Businesses cost and how much can I get from them?

1. Yes they can but you can buy them back aswell.
2. The profit is not low it provides a steady means of income.
3.If you log out and then back in you do lose your stuff but your money remains.

Also you cannot compare the value of money from two different games.

Nice post Andrea. You should blow up the map where the properties are to make it more clear.

Great post Andrea.
If you want, I'll go over the post fixing typos and grammar, possibly add some colour like Creeper suggested?
