Eclipse RP Server Information (LINK)



Where can YOU register to play? Simply login with your forum account. If you don't have one yet, make one!

Help Menu

We don't expect anyone to know how to play based upon our several previous dev blogs, so if you want to know what commands and features are available to you simply press F5 in-game at any time.

Basic Script Cleanup

Script has been cleaned up and organized to speed up performance and reduce the amount of resources being used. This should increase the performance of players on the server as well as prevent any unwanted server/client crashes. More cleanups to be scheduled later on.

Bug Fixing

Our beta testing team did a good job at testing all our features and giving suggestions for the server. All of these bugs (not including GTA:N issues) have been stomped out by our development team and have been tested heavily to ensure every script works and is easy to use and understand for players.

Bug Reporting

Since the server was just released, we encourage all players to report any bugs they find so they can be fixed ASAP. We have tested all features of the script thoroughly but there is a chance there are some bugs left so please do this to help make Eclipse better.

Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV)

Players may get a license to operate a personal/commercial vehicle through the DMV. More information on this can be found on the

Weapon Shops

Players may purchase a gun permit and a certain set of weapons for their self protection. Careful, if you use your permit wrong you'll get it suspended and may not get another one!




Vehicle Insurance

When you buy a vehicle you will need to insure it. Go to one of the many locations across the map to get an insurance broker.




Vehicle Rental

Rental cars are placed in common locations on the map. If you don't have a license, you are limited to a certain amount of km. This will be a very important feature for all new players, especially when trying to get around to find a first job and eventually make enough for a first car of their own.





Warehouses are now available across Los Santos. A warehouse allows a faction / player to store weapons, drugs and vehicles. Warehouses range in price depending on location and size, with the warehouses closer to the city center being more expensive and those on the outskirts being cheaper. To order a shipment of weapons, drugs or vehicles, the owner / faction leadership will place an order, these orders vary in delivery times (12-48 in game hours). When ordering a shipment, you are able to select the quantity, the more you buy, the cheaper it will be (up to 25% discount). Once the order is placed, you will have to wait for it to be delivered. The owner / faction will be alerted about the delivery location of the order 4 hours (in game time) before it arrives, this gives you time to prepare. Once the order has arrived, you will need to unload the weapons / drugs / vehicle from the shipment container, placing them into a truck trailer or several vehicles. Once you arrive back at your warehouse, you unload the contents. You are then able to withdraw the contents of your warehouse to do as you please. When your shipment arrives, it is completely up for grabs, meaning any player or faction can steal your shipment. Be careful of informants and spies, as knowing your enemies shipment locations will play a big part in gang rivalry.




In-game Faction System

The in-game Faction System has been fully implemented. Anyone may open the tab by pressing F4 on their keyboard. The faction menu has numerous amounts of tabs, buttons and features with a sleek look. Players may request invitation to a faction, view factions and create and manage their own faction with support for division, group and rank control.

Police System (LSPD)

The first version of the LSPD faction has been fully implemented. Prior to this, there were small systems in place for getting uniform, cuffing, dragging and using active MDC (scans for vehicles in front of cruiser). For release the script has been completed to a stable version. This release includes a regular MDC for an officer to create/view police units, send out/respond to back up requests (and 911s) and assign cruisers to their unit. The MDC also has functionality to search for person/vehicle records. Police can issue tickets which can be paid at LSPD reception.

The decision is obvious, choose Eclipse!
