As of December 10th 2021 New Chance will be relaunching after a server wipe, as well as the biggest feature update in the history of its existence. Whether you are new to roleplay or a long term player looking to try somewhere new, now is a great time for a New Chance!
New Chance is an actively developed server that is public to play, no intentions currently to become a whitelisted server but there as a backup in case required. Boasting custom cars, numerous MLO interiors and custom plugins, it aims to give players a familiar feel whilst being unique to keep it feeling fresh.
With a big focus on driving roleplay and character stories, there are some great quality of life features that will aid players in creating their story lines. The server is actively staffed by a great team, with a goal of teaching players the correct way and leaving punishment as a last resort. With a simple list of rules and an RP guide for players, we try our best to give the players the tools to be their best.
Now! We know some fancy wording and a fancy banner isn’t enough to have you try out our server… or is it? Well if you need more persuasion, keep reading into this post and hopefully you’ll be convinced to jump in and give it a shot!
If you are already persuaded, feel free to jump over to our discord to begin your journey!
A huge part of roleplay is making sure there are activities that citizens can partake in during their time within the city. Whether this be making money, fun events or getting on the wrong side of the law… we realise the importance of keeping yourself occupied.
The city does provide activities for criminals, there is a small part about upcoming plans towards the end of the post. But criminal activities are to be discovered in game by players, some of the information required will take time to learn and therefore will not be mentioned here.
Below is a small list of notable activities you can do within the city, what is mentioned is only a small piece of the cake and there are many more slices to be discovered within the server!
| Bus Driver - A convenient solo job that has the chance of players hopping on to get around, as well as locals needing to get from place to place. This is a great job for cruising around, learning the city and potentially meeting new friends!
| Taxi - Is another convenient solo job that has the player exploring the map and taking customers from their A>B, driving like a maniac is not encouraged as the customers get quite upset! Not as upset as you will be when you leave the family dog behind and it chases you down the street…
| Roger’s Recycling - A co-operative job where 4 people can cruise the streets grabbing trash, definitely a role where more hands makes lighter work and quicker cash! Rumour has it some of these dumpsters can hold some sweet surprises.
| Player Owned Businesses - Throughout the city there are player run businesses, from night clubs, to food venues and even car sales. Whatever takes your fancy there will be something you can do that will help you bring in that safe cash!
| Cooking Job - Within the Sk8 place where players can kick back and have some fun, there are 3 positions available for anyone to take up, you can cook some great food, cash in the daily profits or advertise as the mascot, needless to say at the end of a day you’ll be rolling in it!

We understand at New Chance that it can’t be all work and no play, what use is money if you have no way to spend it and enjoy it?! Here are a few of the ways you can enjoy your hard earnings in the city and make great memories with great people!
| RC Car Racing - Head up to an abandoned build site half way between Sandy Shore and the city, here you will find an RC car enthusiast who will allow you to rent some RC cars! Create a race course and challenge friends for high scores!
| Microlight Rentals - Up North away from the busy bustling city the air gets cleaner and the scenery improves ten fold, grab some microlights from the airfield and cruise around with friends looking at the area below, just be warned they are GPS tracked and if you go too far the engine cuts out!
| Jetski Rentals - On the beautiful lake of Sandy Shores, there is a small town business owner with some Jetski’s to rent, take them out on the lake and have a of a time!
| Night Clubs - Maybe you aren’t all about high octane sporting activities, maybe you have a groove in your step and like a good beat within your daily life. Scattered across the city is a variety of clubs when open provide one hell of a beat!
| Casino - Well we all know that sometimes gambling can just tickle the right itch, whether you want to hide away some dirty money or fancy trying to hit it big, the casino will sort you right out with huge improvements on the way too!
Not everything is about work and play, we also realise the importance of features that bring a good quality of life, features that allow you to put your mark within the world and ways to show off your wealth, see below a few of the notable amenities that’ll just make your life on the server.
| Food & Drink - You will need to keep yourself topped up with snacks and making sure you’re drowning in drinks! Don’t worry though, you won’t start dying of starvation or dehydration… however! You may find yourself tripping over your feet a little as exhaustion sets in!
| Hotels / Motels / Housing - Having a place to call home is important, somewhere safe you can keep your belongings and take a well needed rest. From buying your dream home with Dynasty 8, all the way to renting a hotel or motel room, there is hundreds of places for you to make your hobbit hole!
| Shareable Banking - Maybe you’re a married couple, close friends or extremely relaxed with your money? New Chance offers a banking system that allows you to share your account, rightfully at your own risk, but there is a great banking system in place to track where those silly spends go!
| Racing System & Custom cars - For those car fanatics who love expressing themselves through rubber and metal, there is multitudes of cars available for you to purchase and customize. But it doesn’t stop there! Take those cars and set time trial laps, or grand prix style races through the inner city racing systems!
| Multiple Characters - Creativity is only limited to what you can create, with multiple characters available you can be a crime lord at night and an EMT by day! Just don’t get the lives mixed together, each character lives a separate life and skipping this fact will get you in trouble!
| Boats & Plane ownership - Not many cities offer players the possibility to own planes & boats, well we like to be different. Obviously use them with caution, but enjoy yourself the city looks great from the air and the ocean is such a calming place!
It’s no secret that there are certain roles a city needs to function, from police all the way through to real estate, these roles take great responsibility and the right people to perform at their best. In terms of development and progression, the leadership team allow department leads to run their departments how they see best fit. With minimal interference it allows for the creativity of individuals to show through and allows them to put their stamp on the department.
For this section we asked for inspiration from the departmental leads, so here is what they had to say about their departments!
Our LSPD is highly focused on making great roleplay a priority, we prefer our officers to be relaxed and fun to be around, worrying less about perfection but making the situation enjoyable for all. To me I think this makes the New Chance LSPD a unique place to be, a department that’s striving for a crime free city, whilst liaising with multiple departments forming one big team.
We highly encourage anyone who has an interest in roleplaying as an officer to join the LSPD, as my good friend Vin Diesel would say… “It’s all about family”. You’ll have great fun, create awesome stories and help us continue our legacy of being a unique police department. So whether you’re experienced or inexperienced, if your passion fits everything above, come apply for the New Chance LSPD.

Not only does the city boast 1 amazing police department, but there is 2! SASP encompasses both civilian and police RP, encouraging both through the available job roles. Working in conjunction with the LSPD our troopers will be handpicked and offered employment, where a bigger focus comes into play on the investigation side of roleplay.
If you prefer SASP also plans to have a division in the near future that focuses on dispatching, sending work to both the LSPD & SASP officers on duty, not everything is about on hands patrol. Being a new department and still growing there are some great opportunities for those interested, even if you don’t have experience we value civilians that want to get involved in the civilians roles, and we will coach you and support you to perform to the best of your ability in your role.
Weazel Network offers a form of roleplay unique from any other department, a job that allows the employee a creative front to share the city news in attention grabbing ways.

Overall Weazel Network is a fun relaxed role that inspires creativity and we are always looking for innovative ways to tell more stories.

Since New Chance became a reality back in early 2020, the overall goal hasn’t changed. At New Chance, the main drive is to form a community that everyone can be part of, a roleplay server that’s developed around what the community feels is needed most, but most of all a place that feels familiar. It is then down to YOU the player, to create a character that makes connections, develops their story and puts their stamp within the new chance world.
Here is a list of planned features that are in the sights to be introduced to the server, and just like everything above this is just a short snippet to give you an insight of what’s to come.
| fishing - With boat ownership exisiting and Los Santos being completely surrounded by water, we want an in depth fishing system that gets players really hooked! Making great use of free time whilst earning a little bit of extra cash away from work life.
| Hunting - Heading away from the hustle and bustle of city life, the goal will be to have a full hunting system, allowing players to hunt for trophy kills, animal skins and more. A place where you can head out into the woods with a group of friends and have a great time… providing nobody gets shot in the leg
| Casino Expansion - The casino currently exists already on the server, however the activites within are limited. It’s a great place to… well gamble! With aims of adding slot machines, spin the wheel and more table games, the goal will be for the casino to be somewhere players can try their luck in many different ways! Just one more spin!
| Enhancements to official gangs - Gangs play a huge part within GTA lore, and are heavily featured by roleplayers across many servers. Within New Chance players can apply to represent official gangs which comes with perks, this system is new and not seen anywhere else. The goal is to continue adding onto this and making official gangs a big part of life on New Chance.
| More Criminal Activities - Criminal life is a huge part of GTA, and quite frankly no matter how much gets added there will always be a demand for more. However there is plans to start getting some more in depth criminal activities that are more than just smash and grabs, allowing for criminals to get their creative mind on for bigger prizes.
Well that was a bit of a read wasn’t it! So where does that leave us? TLDR time?
If you are looking for a economy server that has recently wiped, has great staff, active developer and always looking for more great people to join a great team. Well all we ask is you come give New Chance a try, we know it may not be perfect, but it’s a work in progress. And with the right people in the right places with our vision we believe we can make one hell of a community, we can make it a great place to roleplay.
And with the vision that the leadership team have for the server, everything will keep changing for the better all thanks to community feedback. In 18 months New Chance has developed from a slap together ESX server to something well rounded, well developed and something as a team we are proud of! But we aren’t stopping there, we will keep pushing on!
Thanks for taking the time to look over this post, any feedback in the comments is welcome as well as any questions!
