Rules of the VC MP forum
The VC-MP forum is allowed to have questions about the mod. It is not allowed to spam in here, or anywhere in GTAForums. The first version of the VC-MP is yet to be released. The modders are working their best to assure you get your VC-MP as soon as possible. So just sit down on that chair, relax, and feel free to ask questions.
What is VC-MP?
VC-MP (also know as Vice City Multiplayer) is a mod for GTA: Vice City. It allows you to set up a server on your game, and play with GTA lovers from around the world. You can dialogue with those members too. A bit like Counter Strike, only it's a GTA game. You can pick your character (correct me if I'm wrong) in VC-MP, all the pedestrians are choosable.

A: Yes. The server admin can take them out, edit, or add them.
Q: Would you have to pay for a server? Or will they be free?
A: Why on earth would you have to pay for a server? This is completely free software.
Q: What about all spawn points? Can I edit them?
A: You can define: Spawn Point, Skin, Weapons, X Y Z coords, etc in the INI.
Q: Does VC-MP have a cheat protection and how does it work? Is it safe?
A: Yes, there's an anti-cheat, and if they are caught trying to cheat, something funny will happen to them.
Q: Is it possible to have random spawning? Can I also add more weapons by putting "#weapon_4 #weapon_4_ammo"?
A: Pickups and teleporters (mainly for interiors) may be added to the VC-MP ini at some stage. The focus now for VC-MP is simply getting it stable and getting a remote admin in there.
Q: Will pickups be scripted in the ini on the devshot release?
A: The ini will eventually be deprecated in favour of server-side scripting, which will allow objectives and such.
Q: Where can I talk about the beta version, in general?
A: on the IRC channel (Click Here.) or on here.
Q: Where can I see videos of VC-MP?
Q: I have other mods on my GTA game. I wouldn't need to take them off to install VC-MP, would I?
A: In order for VC-MP to work correctly, you need a clean version, with no mods, of GTA: Vice City.
Q: Vice City sucks.
A: Then you're a n00b who knows nothing about games.
