How to change your in-game username without losing money, vehicles or stats


Dear players! This is the only proper way to change your in-game name! Under any circumstances do not register a new name because after that it will be impossible to transfer your stats and money to the new account. By following this guide you ensure your name change will be quick and successful and you will save us from additional work. Also please, do not message any staff members about your name change. This will not speed up the process at all and it may even lead to the rejection of your name change request. Thank you.



1. Go to the Project Apollo Community (PAC) website. (https://pacommunity.co.uk/login)
2. Login using your current littlewhitey's VC-MP in-game username and password.





3. Once you have successfully logged in, you notice your so called "community name" displayed at the top right corner of your screen. Click on your name and a small window will appear below. Inside that window click on "Settings".





4. The first thing you should now see is a field named "In-game name". Enter your new in-game name in that field and hit "Save" at the very bottom of the page.





5. Now you just have to wait. A name change is a manual process which requires a PAC admin approval. This may take minutes, hours, maybe even a few days. Please be patient.





6. After your name change has been approved you can connect to the server and play with your new nickname. All done!

Great topic, I bet this will be helpful if people bothered to go through these sticky topics before creating a new one though.

Also just a reminder, the way explained above is the one and only way to retain your vehicle, money and stats when changing your in-game nickname, so PLEASE request a name change instead of creating a new account.

Just to elaborate on this slightly since some of you have missed it, DO NOT REGISTER THE NEW NICKNAME!. The amount of requests this week where PAC has come back and said 'Nope, can't do that, the name already exists' is crazy.
