[Info]Everything about clubs!
« on: January 22, 2020, 13:42 »
Hello Guys!

I wanted to make a full guide/tutorial regarding to the club system. I searched a lot on forums and found 2 useful tutorials regarding to club, they are available in the end at FAQs section.

Note: Yes, I have read those 2 tutorials already, and the method to create a club is pretty much same in all, but I will provide much more information instead of just the method, so yeah, this is different than others and i'm not double or re-posting same thing again. :)

Note: This post will only contain information regarding to CLUBS ONLY. Anything related to base is not discussed here.


I personally never created a club and know nothing about clubs (as I don't really have interest in clubs), so I know very few about clubs. I see many players who are excited and want to create their own club, but obviously, as a normal thing to do is to get information about clubs before you create it.

Sometimes, players ask some difficult question, that even no one knows the answer (no words typed in chat) and this kinda kills their excitement against clubs, as they don't get any information so slowly slowly they leave that topic (some players, not all).

I personally wanted to gain as much information about clubs as I can so that I can share with everyone, and they also know about the club system. The only option was to create a club and test everything out by myself and then answer all questions (that's what I did).

Side Note: Please refer to Credit Section to know more about contributions.

Lets start without talking too much!

Advantages


For Owner:
  If you have good members in your club, they can work for your club and get you some funds from which you can buy vehicles without investing/donating in club (In a case where you put all your money to buy a base and have $0 money, so you can still buy vehicles).
  If you have good members in your club, they can work for your club and get you some funds from which you can pay rent of your base and don't have to donate/work too much to pay the rent.


For Members:
  Members get all vehicles at same place. Like sometimes you change your work very often so you have to /reclass & /kill then select appropriate spawn point where you can find mission vehicles to work with. By having a base and club vehicles shared there, players can simply spawn at base and take any vehicle they want and do anywork they want (without respawning to different locations) mostly useful for securicars, as there are no spawn points to get to securicar you have to drive a lot, but in clubs you get all vehicles at one palce.
  Members can enjoy using components which are not found in public vehicles like: Fast acceleration (NOS), Better suspension (Hydraulics) and better grip (wheels).
  Mostly club shared vehicles are insured by their owners, if they are then members can get free /fix for themselves, which is cost saving to them.
  Members can drive some fancy cars (modified cars) which are not found in public like: Modified Sultan, Elegy, Stratum, Flash and many more.
  Members can also drive some rare cars which are not available in public and are very costly to buy, like Infernus, Mover, Vortex, Swat Tank etc.

I have searched the forum very well and got 20% of question and after that I tested everything to answer the rest of the questions.
20% - Forums search.
80% - Personal testing.


Thanks to those 2 useful tutorials already posted on forums, which helped me here, and our helpful community on our forums that answered some of the questions.

Note: I am thinking to make another tutorial as well (about Bases) but I don't know how long its gonna take, as I am getting a bit busy with my IRL stuff, but I hope to make that tutorial ASAP.

All about bases:

Yeah, I thought that would be base related so didn't add, but added now.

Thank you :)
