Winning Strategies for FiveM: From Sleep to Server Organization

The Mix of Kim Jong Un and Joe Biden

Weird title, right? But stick with me. Think of Kim Jong Un's tough side and Joe Biden's kind grandpa style.

Let's get clear. Do you get tons of tickets? How many are just people wanting pointless stuff for the city? Probably, half of your requests are for silly useless things. Close them and keep going. You can't make everyone happy.

Don't be nice to people just to keep them in your city. That's not right. The relationship it creates is as fragile as eggshells, not based on trust or your actions for the server and your community.

Listen up, folks, your city isn't a democracy, alright? You can dress it up and claim that you heed people's voices, that you consider their opinions and even ask for their votes. But when all is said and done, it's just a façade. You still do whatever you please.

Do you know that you're a part-time firefighter? You are always trying to put out fires instead of PREVENTING them.

So, where does Joe Biden come in? Be nice and kind to everyone. You never know who someone is or what they can do for your city. I meet lots of people and sometimes I can be tough, but I understand how important relationships are.

Remember this: It's about WHO YOU KNOW, not WHAT YOU KNOW.

Be clear with your answers but also show care.

Embrace Organization

Now is the time to fix your Discord for your RP server. I bet it's a fucking mess, with things scattered everywhere, countless and useless channels, and roles all over the place. You probably even have some ridiculous roles like BIG BOOTY or FAT ASS.

Ditch all that immature nonsense. No wonder you're struggling. I've said it time and again, FiveM is a business. Your Discord is a reflection of your business. Design it as you would want someone to present themselves when they step into your establishment – clean, organized, and professional.

People shouldn't be seeking support in the main channel, and discussions need to stay where they belong, make sure to enforce this. Not only will this help you stay organized, but it also encourages everyone else to follow suit and adhere to the rules you've set.

A critical point to remember: your DMs are NOT for support. Cut that out, man. Everyone should be using tickets.

As for your development work, make use of GitHub. Keep track of your progress so you can look back and appreciate your accomplishments.

Getting organized will fuel your motivation to keep moving forward.

Prioritize Sleep

Folks, I'm dead serious when I tell you this: aim for 8-9 hours of sleep.

Give it a shot! Commit wholeheartedly for just 7 days. First, get your sleep routine in order. Aim to wake up at 9 AM and hit the sack by 10 PM. Try this for a week, and you'll be amazed at how ENERGETIC and ALIVE you'll feel. Just stick with it for 7 days, a single week.

I get it; it's easier said than done, right? Many of you work night shifts or have various commitments, so this might not be feasible. But if you're reading this and it fits into your schedule, go for it. Please, give it a try. You'll see how it can genuinely transform your life.

They Always Come Back

This statement rings true time and again, and you'll understand why in a moment. I often find myself saying, "They always come back." Here's what I mean: How many of you have run a city, only to see people LEAVE, stir up drama, and even poach players from you? I bet it's happened quite a few times, hasn't it?

Here's a piece of advice: just ban the ringleader, the main person who started the rival city. Then wait for a few weeks, or even just a few days. You'll see those players trickle back to you, having realized the grass wasn't greener on the other side. And when they return, guess what? They'll likely bring even MORE players from the other city with them.

But here's the kicker: that banned city owner won't be returning to YOUR city. Joke's on them, right?

The reason they return is because they're COMFORTABLE with what YOU offer. They cherish the people and the memories they've created. In short, they always come back. The key is for YOU to stay strong and not give up. Don't close shop. Keep pressing on, no matter what. Keep swimming.

In conclusion, mastering the art of running a successful city in FiveM isn't just about the technical aspects or the sheer hours you put into it. It's about adopting the right mentality, maintaining a level of organization that sets the tone for your community, prioritizing your health, understanding the dynamics of player relationships, and most importantly, exhibiting unwavering perseverance in the face of adversity.

Remember, the journey in FiveM is a marathon, not a sprint. The key to success lies in your ability to continually adapt and improve, keeping your focus on the larger picture. Trust in the process and remember that they always come back to familiarity and authenticity. You've got this. Keep pushing, keep swimming, and enjoy the journey. Your city is counting on you.

Much love,
