yes and no. you can do everything except own land for free. to own land it's $10/mo. However, you can rent land from those who do own it without paying the monthly fee, you just pay a weekly amount of L$(the in-game money) depending on the size and amount owner wants you to pay. I'm renting a shop for L$250/week now which isn't bad because I got that job at the club and it pays at least that much every night I work it.actually looks pretty good. is it free?
