Server Rules!

Post by smoot » Sun Aug 05, 2018 3:06 pm

Rule Explanations:

*****A star has 5 points*****
1. Respect for the community
This is the first and most important rule. You should be respectful to other players and administrators. You should always keep in mind that whatever you do in-game, it should not infringe on others' capacity to enjoy the game. this means not sending someone angry or offensive out-of-character messages because of an in-character subject or event. Also, do not argue with an administrator because you disagree with an administrative ruling. Please use the fill out a ticket in our website to deal with the issue privately. Furthermost NO TROLLING player, members, police, admin and etc.

2. Deathmatching & RDM
Killing another player for little or no in-character reason is strictly forbidden. Deliberately attempting to start a fight with little to no reason is also, not allowed. Going up to another player and insulting them in-character with the sole intention of escalating the situation to a fight is also not allowed without the proper roleplay scenario (bar fights, car accidents, etc.). There will be absolutely no RANDOM DEATH MATCHING OR VECHICLE DEATCH MATCHING. If a traffic accident has occurred while a player was hit by a car it need to be roleplayed out with ems and the police.

3. New Life Rule & Revenge Killing
You are not allowed to seek out and/or kill anyone involved with your character's death. When you are killed, your character loses all memory leading up to and including their death unless they were rescued by paramedics. This may involve no longer knowing or recognizing your killer(s) after dying. You must also do your absolute best to avoid the player(s) who killed you, and definitely not kill them, provoke them, or otherwise engage them in any role play situation. If you are killed by a player, or a group of players, or the police you will forget everything involving your character and the opposing character(s) in that situation. If you are killed in an area that is not crucial to your character (house, or job), you should avoid the area to make a better roleplay for a while. This all also applies to any death even accidental.

4. Power-gaming
Players cannot solely use the in-game mechanics to steal another player's vehicle whilst said vehicle is occupied. The situation must be role-played out between both parties. If your vehicle does not possess a license plate due to game mechanics, you may not roleplay that it has one anyway. Any vehicle purchased from the dealership that does not have a visible plate will be considered registered as a recreational vehicle. These vehicles are for off-road use only and must be towed to your destination of choice. If you are in possession of such a vehicle on city streets will you be subject to being pulled over and issues fines and an impound. 4.1 How to roleplay firearm damage 200-100 HP can be treated as damage to your vest 99-50 HP is to be treated as a flesh wounds. You should see a doctor to lower your risk of infection. 49-1 HP is to be treated as a center mass shot. You'll be moving slowly and can't walk far. You WILL need medical attention 0 HP You are incapacitated. You may barely move your arms, and speak in /low. You must remain in the same place to await medical attention. After ten minutes you will be deemed dead and may respawn. 4.2 How to deal with vehicle collisions You are to roleplay all damage dealt to your car. You are not to head on wreck into other vehicles (even lag slam head on ramming). If you head on wreck into a stationary object with your vehicle at a speed above 45 MPH, you will need to roleplay that that vehicle is disabled for that situation. And also roleplay any injuries you may have received in the accident. You must report any accident with over $1000 dollars of damage. Failure to do so may result in a fine being issued to you.

5. Metagaming
Communicating information that your character does not know to others, sharing information via chat, TeamSpeak, Discord or any other method, that other characters would not feasibly be able to see or otherwise interpret, sharing out-of-character information through an in-character medium, or taking in-character action based on information gained from an out-of-character source are all classified as metagaming. Only authorized legal organizations are permitted to use TeamSpeak & Discord for in-character communication. 5.1 Chat Box Rules You cannot use internet slang or unrealistic abbreviations in in-character chats, nor can you use symbols other than standard punctuation, except when appropriate (i.e. in-character emails, text messages, or other digital communication). You are not permitted to use languages other than English publicly, in-character or out-of-character, except common words for flavor purposes. Nonstandard punctuation (i.e. smileys or other constructs) is not permitted. To indicate a pause in conversation, you can use an ellipsis – “…” – and to indicate a sudden break in conversation, you can use a dash – “— “. Finally, only certain varieties of legal organizations are permitted to use TeamSpeak for in-character communication. All no game related chat is to be held in Out OF Character chat but typing /ooc "message to server here". If you need help please use the help channel in the chat. 5.3 In Character Live-Streaming Due to the complexities surrounding in character streaming, live in character streams are not permitted. Streaming is permitted, however cannot be treated as in character and use of information gained directly from a player's stream will fall under metagaming.

6. Acknowledging Out of Character Chat
Players have the right to ignore other players' out-of-character discussions if they wish, unless it is to ask why they were killed. However, players are not permitted to ignore administrators’ communication or rulings. Furthermore, do not avoid out-of-character communications with an administrator.

7. Contracted Killings or Assassinations
No player or organization is permitted to have “contract killing” as their sole focus. Specific players or members of organizations recognized by the administration may be able to participate in contract killing. Such members must be vetted and approved by organization staff and the Operation Directors. Only a limited number from accredited organizations are allowed to apply.

8. Administrator Instructions/Rulings
Administrator instructions or rulings are final and nonnegotiable. If an administrator’s ruling seems to have been made in error, the dispute should be handled outside of the game via a staff complaint on the forum.

9. Unacceptable Character Names
A player name must be unique and realistic. You may not use the name of a famous person in real life or from history, nor may you use the name of an easily recognizable or already existing character from any form of fiction.

You need to have a first and last name.

13. Account Access

You are responsible if your account is used by another person, and by doing so, you link your identities in our records and may end up getting yourself banned for the other person’s actions as a result. You are likewise responsible if a friend or sibling logs on your computer and somehow gets you banned or otherwise punished. Additionally, you are not allowed to sell, transfer, lend, or share an account with anyone else for any reason, for any amount of time.

14. Circumventing a Ban

20. Unacceptable Roleplay
Roleplaying as terrorists, separatists, intelligence agency members, private military, federal or foreign government employees, or similar avenues of roleplay (individually or in organizations) that would require entities such as the state or federal government to intercede are explicitly forbidden, since those entities are not generally present in the server. You may not roleplay a character from a movie, TV show, comic book, or any other type of related media. While you are allowed to take traits or inspiration from these types of characters, blatantly copying them to use on VIRP is not allowed. This includes both personality and appearance.

21. Failure to Roleplay / Unrealistic Roleplay
Failing to roleplay is strictly forbidden. Mass-RP Community is a roleplay serious server; you're expected to be roleplaying at all times. If a situation presents itself where rules are broken, roleplay first, report later. Abusing in game physics or mechanics to gain an edge over another player will result in punishment. You are expected to use script features to assist in roleplay. DO NOT continuously type in out-of-character chat while another player is trying to roleplay with you. YOU MAY NOT roll your vehicle in a pursuit and then use in game mechanics to flip it on its roof and continue driving. You MAY NOT disregard happenings that would result in the death of your character (falls from substantial heights, head shots, fires, head-on collisions, train collisions, etc.) regardless of your OOC health / armor level. You have been shot in the leg yet you keep running acting like nothing has happened. Stop roleplaying and complain in OOC chat because a rule was broken during the roleplay.

25. Role Playing a Character Under the Age of 16
Do not roleplay a character under the age of 16 years old. You will be banned for good and i mean it.

26. Proof of Obscure/Beneficial RP
There are countless situations where you could take part in somewhat obscure roleplay that would be beneficial to your character by providing them with a customized item also a star has 42 points. Examples such as:
⦁ Converting your vehicle's center console into a lockable safe to keep your narcotics secure during a delivery.
⦁ Removing your vehicle's license plate, and subsequently committing a series of crimes in attempt to foil police.
⦁ Modifying items of clothing to hide objects, such as a hidden compartment in your shoe, or having sewn a bag of drugs on the interior of your coat.
These examples are not against the rules, and you will not face punishment for doing them, but it should be kept in mind that any RP similar to the examples above will require proof. If no proof is provided, your RP will be considered invalid. It is highly recommended that you take screenshots of any RP that involve beneficial items not currently supported by our script. We will happily allow players to take part in complicated RP, but please ensure you have proof, as these examples can be effortlessly fabricated to provide a quick get-out-of-jail free card. Please note that administrators reserve the right to void your RP if the provided proof isn't substantial. Before creating, purchasing, or obtaining a beneficial item, it's highly recommended that players contact an administrator to obtain approval for said item. Administrators reserve the right to deny requests or ideas for these items, as well as removing existing items should they find them unnecessary. Players should make an effort to not stray too far from what our script allows.

27. If something is possible in real life, it does not mean it will be allowed in our server.
