FiveM is a popular modification for the open-world action game Grand Theft Auto V developed by Rockstar Games. Although FiveM was not developed by Rockstar Games and the use of mods is generally not permitted, modification is tolerated by Rockstar Games.
That's why Rockstar Games allows private RP servers
There are a few reasons why Rockstar Games tolerates FiveM. First of all brings the modification Many players get new content and functions that they otherwise wouldn't have. This can help keep the game more interesting for players and keep them playing longer. In the long term, this means more game sales and therefore more revenue for Rockstar Games.
In addition, there is also a community of FiveM developers who are constantly creating new content for the modification. This content is usually free and available to all FiveM users. This may help the modification become more popular and more players purchase Grand Theft Auto V to gain access to the FiveM content. This is also how Rockstar Games earns money from game sales.
However, you should follow the rules

An example of this is Rockstar Games, which strictly prohibits the monetization of Grand Theft Auto V, particularly RP servers. This can be read on the Rockstar Games website!
