So what is IRC? It's a short for Internet Relay Chat, and like the name suggests it's a chat system. Las Venturas Playground is using IRC channels since it's beginning, to let the community members chat with each other while they are not in-game, or to discuss items in real time.
Official LVP Channels
- #LVP (English chat)
- #LVP.Echo (Ingame chat displayed at IRC)
- #LVP.NL (Dutch chat)
You can use an IRC client to connect. A few examples of clients are: mIRC, XChat or HydraIRC. If you use a client, you have to connect to the IRC server. The IRC server is: irc.gtanet.com. When you are connected, you can join channels using, for example, /join #LVP.
- Don't spam/flood the channels
- Don't abuse the LVP Bots
- Racism is not allowed
- Do not flame other members
- We hate the USE OF CAPS ALL THE TIME
This channel needs some explanation. There are 6 to 10 bots, called Nuw*ni. Where the * can be: a, i, u, o, e. Nuwani is the main bot, all the other bots are child-bots (anti-flood).
The #LVP.Echo channel is used for the in-game chat. Crew members can see even more than that, for example the admin chat.
Via #LVP.Echo you can communicate to the in-game players. You can send your message with: !msg your message in #LVP.Echo. VIP Members can also use !pm playerID message to send PM's to players.
