Changed rule 34.

Rule 34
You are required to have a clothing object covering your face in order to use /mask



You are allowed to hide your name via the /mask command only if your face is covered up enough to make recognising you impossible or very hard. It can no longer be used without an object covering your face.

Acceptable forms of hiding your identity include:
  • balaclavas
  • bike helmets (with visors)
  • bandanas (tied around the mouth)
  • masks (eg. the hockey mask or devil mask)
  • disguises (eg. fake beard + sunglasses)
  • skins that have the face covered by default (eg. the SWAT skin)
  • other (as long as at least 50% of the face is covered)

Unacceptable forms of hiding your identity include:
  • sunglasses
  • headgear (caps, hats, etc)
  • other objects that don't cover your face enough


Removed the "with visors" part of this rule following a recent admin complaint. All bike helmets are now acceptable ways to conceal your identity with /mask.

Rule 12
Committing crimes in supervised areas

If you want to commit or have just committed a crime in a place that would normally be guarded or under supervision - you have to request permission from an administrator.


Places like government headquarters, banks and other public buildings are usually either guarded or have a live CCTV system with an operator, therefore the police would be immediately notified about any crimes that happen within them. As there no way to script an automatic notification we need you to make sure that proper authorities are notified - if you commit a crime in one of the locations listed below you have to request permission from an administrator.

> If there's no administrators online try contacting an officer directly via /pm and ask them to announce it via faction chat or Teamspeak.
> If there's no police officers online - you don't have to notify anyone.

Places that fall under this rule:
  • Police Departments (Dillimore, Montgomery, Fort Carson, El Quebrados)
  • Townhalls (Palomino Creek, Fort Carson, Angel Pine)
  • Station 11 (RCFD headquarters)
  • Hospitals (Montgomery, Fort Carson, El Quebrados)
  • Palomino Creek Fishing Bay / Fishers Lagoon
  • Banks (all banks within Red, Bone and Flint County)
  • Elite Trucking Headquarters
  • Montgomery Park
  • Montgomery Pizza Stack
.
Purposefully raiding government headquarters (for example to break a friend out of jail, or to kidnap a police officer) also requires permission from an administrator.
PunishmentIf you fail to request permission before/after committing a robbery in a public place, you may receive a punishment which could vary from an ajail to a date ban, depending on the severity. Raiding government headquarters without permission can result in a permanent ban.


Administrators will no longer announce these types of RP via /asay due to the metagaming that happens once an announcement is made. However, to prevent criminal activity happening in these locations consistently you still require permission.

Rule 13
Driving/Vehicle Rules

We all wish to promote fairness towards everyone while driving a vehicle, therefor there are a few rules considering driving and vehicles in general.


Adding NOS/hydraulics script-wise is allowed only after proper roleplay of installing these mods has been finished.

Ninjajacking (using the GTA physics to jack someone from a vehicle without any RP) is considered powergaming and is not allowed. You have to fully roleplay such an action and give the other party a chance to react.

Tapping a certain key while riding a bike allows you to gain a large and unrealistic speed and therefore is not allowed. This applies to tapping the lean forward key on motorbikes and tapping W on pushbikes.

Using side-job vehicles for personal use is not allowed, as it is unfair towards players wishing to use the vehicles for their intended purpose.

Driver drive-by (using GTA's drive-by mechanic as the driver of a vehicle) is not allowed due to the excessive damage it causes compared to on foot gun usage.

Drive-by shooting as the passenger of any bike, motorbike or quad is not allowed, as it moves the hitbox of your character in an awkward manner and makes you more or less invincible.

Carsurfing (standing on top of a moving vehicle) is not allowed. Some vehicles (eg. pick-up trucks) are exempt from this.

Non-RP driving is not allowed. This includes, but is not limited to: heavy offroading with non-offroad vehicles, stunting, mountain climbing, cliff jumping, drifting on sidewalks.

Unrealistic driving may only be done if you have a proper reason to disregard road laws (for example being in a chase or a race). Speeding dangerously, swerving into oncoming vehicles, drifting, etc out of OOC boredom is not allowed.

Crossing roadblocks - you are not allowed to cross or go around police/emergency roadblocks just to get to your destination quicker. It is considered unrealistic and you're supposed to have a detour instead.

Locking a vehicle in a Non-RP manner where your character would be unable to do so is not allowed (e.g. while downed or held at gunpoint).

Ramming a player or vehicle while driving a motorbike - this is highly unrealistic, as in real life you would immediately fall off the bike and get heavily injured (which usually doesn't happen with GTA SA bike mechanics). This includes lag-PITing vehicles.

Landing helicopters in unsafe areas / flying too low is not allowed. Aircraft should only be landed in areas which are safe to land in (i.e. the landing zone is stable and free of hazards such as power cables and street lights). Likewise, landing on buildings in built-up areas or flying too low over them is also not allowed.




Bit in red has been added to the rule.

Previous rule:
Rule 14
Sexual harassment

You may not force any player into a roleplay with sexual harassment, unless both parties agree OOC'ly.


Due to the fact that many players find roleplaying sexual activities disturbing and/or disgusting, you have to ask the person you wish to roleplay with if they wish to participate. Pedophilia and Incest behaviour however is not allowed at all.
PunishmentThose who are found to be breaching this rule could face a temporary or permanent ban depending on the situation.



New rule:
Rule 14
Sexual and disgusting roleplay

You may not force any player into a roleplay scenario that involves sexual actions or actions that could be seen as highly disgusting, unless all players present agree to it OOC'ly.


Due to the fact that many players find roleplaying certain activities disturbing and/or disgusting, you are required to ask the person you wish to roleplay with (as well as any other players in the area) if they wish to participate in such activity. This includes all kinds of sexual roleplay (sex, rape, harassment, etc) as well as highly disturbing/disgusting roleplay in general (extreme tortures, animal violence, etc).

This rule does not forbid you to commit such actions completely though - if the other party refuses to participate in the roleplay then it is simply skipped and still happens ICly, but should be simplified to a simple /do message (for example "/do Anna Smith would be brutally raped by John Doe." or "/do John Doe's left leg would be cut off with a chainsaw."). You can contact an administrator if you're unsure of whether your planned action falls under this rule or not.

Pedophilia and incest behaviour however is not allowed at all.

Rule 33
You are not allowed to purposefully disturb an IC event

These events have to be announced by an administrator.


IC events are organised with the intention to entertain the players who participate in them. Any acts that might lead to the event being ended prematurely / being disturbed to the point that players' enjoyment of said event may be disrupted / cause the players to leave are not allowed if the event was announced by an administrator. This is allowed however, if specific permission from an administrator is given. This includes, but is not limited to: shootouts, police raids, bomb threats.

To avoid ruining the flow of events within clubs and bars who are open to the public, it is forbidden to brawl, fight or shoot within these clubs. The only exception to this, is if you've received permission from an administrator to carry out the brawl and/or shooting. It can be requested through /assistance. This is done to avoid clubs having to close early due to conflicts and also giving those players interested in a more peaceful club/bar life the ability to enjoy their RP without having to worry about it being interrupted. If you feel the need to brawl/fight during a club/bar opening, we advise that you wait until you are out and away from the club.

PunishmentDisturbing an IC event without administrative permission will result in an admin jail or a temporary ban, depending on the severity.


Rule 33 changed to include club/bar brawls. Please be aware. Red in the rule above is the new bit.

Minor update to rule 9: "You're not allowed to linger around doing nothing for multiple hours, simply to collect paychecks. You must be actively roleplaying on the server or be using the /AFK feature." was added.

CURRENT:
Rule 37
Pulling out weapons



It is not allowed to pull out a large melee weapon or a firearm without roleplaying the action with a /me or /do, unless they're visibly holstered on your body via /holster. This rule does not apply to small melee weapons or firearms, which can be pulled out with no roleplay even if not visibly holstered.

Weapons that fall under the "small" criteria are:
  • 9mm
  • Silenced 9mm
  • Desert Eagle
PunishmentAsspulling a large weapon will result in an admin jail.


ADJUSTED:

This rule does not apply to small melee weapons or firearms, which can be pulled out with no roleplay even if not visibly holstered. Due to the massive amount of weapon types in real life, you may not use nicknames for any weapon you wish to brandish. Weapon brand names such as Glock, Beretta, etc.. may be used.

OLD:

Rule 15
Robbery/scamming limits

It can be difficult for players to make significant money in the server and we feel that there should be some protection of the funds gained by the players.


The robbery limit is $5,000 and the scamming limit is $50,000.

The player being robbed / scammed MUST be level THREE or higher. It is not allowed to rob level 1-2 players.

You yourself need to be level THREE or higher in order to scam and/or rob. You may also not assist when robbing and/or scamming a player until you are level THREE in the interests of fairness.

You may only rob up to $2,500 if you are forcing someone to take money from any of their assets or their bank account.

Exception to this rule: In the interest of fairness, committing illegal acts such as dealing drugs or using illegal weapons as a level 1 or 2 removes the under-level-3 protection. This means that other players will be allowed to rob or scam you in such a situation, despite of your level not being high enough.

We have a separate thread for all rules related to robbing and scamming, it can be found here:

.
PunishmentPlayers found breaking this rule will be admin jailed or temporary banned, depending on the situation.

Rule 27
If an item is script wise in your possession, it is in your possession

If you are searched and are carrying any items that the searching player wishes to confiscate; you may -NOT- RP that the item is elsewhere.


If you've specifically roleplayed hiding your goods to make them harder to find (for example stuffing cocaine bags into your shoe or strapping a handgun under your car) - you are expected to provide screenshot proof of those actions to everyone who requests it. The screenshot must have time-stamps enabled. If no proof of hiding an item is given - it is up to the person conducting the search to believe you or not.

The game physics don't really allow for much concealment when it comes to dropping items such as weapons or drugs, so we consider it acceptable to roleplay hiding such items and keeping it on your character. Similar as in the paragraph above, you will need to take a screenshot of the roleplay and show it to whoever requests it. This can be done only during active roleplay scenarios such as gun/drug deals and similar.

You are allowed to hide your visibly holstered weapons inside clothing items such as backpacks, purses and duffle bags. You are NOT allowed to fully hide them inside your character's model.
PunishmentThe breach of this rule will result in the item(s) being removed from you or/and lead to a temporary ban, depending on the situation.

If you wish to roleplay a non-scriptwise item being used and/or added to your properties and/or yourself, you must have screenshot evidence of doing so. Screenshot proof must have /timestamps enabled and /time or else they'll be considered invalid. Such examples would be tinted vehicle windows, a security pad within your home, cameras placed on your home exterior.

Minor updates to long outdated rules. Names and such. Ex. SBI HQ added to rule 12, discord added to rule 22, etc.

Slightly big update: Rule 12 more clear in regards to the exact zones, to avoid confusion for administrators and players alike.
