11

Cross Server Chat must be in English only.

Although not all servers have an enforceable English only rule, all messages sent across servers via "Global Chat" or "Cross Server Chat" must be in English only as the messages are sent to other servers with English Only rule enforced and to other sources such as Discord where that rule remains in place.
12

  • Innocents or Detectives killing Detectives
  • Traitors killing other Traitors

  • Killing other Players within your own Team

  • Betraying your Employer while in Contract, such as the Mayor’s Guards killing the Mayor, or a Hitman killing their Client while their Contract is still open

  • A maximum of 3 fading doors are provided to each Player. Each door must have a clearly visible Keypad that can be accessed from the outside.
  • Prop Exploits that make a base impossible to raid, exploit Prop Hitboxes, or hide Props/Tools with Invisibility/near Invisibility are not allowed.

  • One-way props are not allowed.
  • Opposing teams, such as Criminals and the Government are not allowed to base together.
  • Public buildings such as Police Stations must always be accessible.
5

Hired Muscle

Hired Muscle applies to any role with Contract or Role-based conditions set by a Faction or Employer. This includes;

  • SWAT Commander/Sniper/Medic/Unit
  • Hired Guard/Mayor’s Guard
  • Hitman/Professional Hitman
  • Private Military Contractor

The rules for Hired Muscle-based Roles are as follows;

  • You must not betray your Employer or Client during an active Contract. This applies at all times to the Mayor’s Guard, and follows the procedure for Griefing.
  • You must only kill Players if required, such as a Contract or to defend the Mayor. This follows the procedure for RDM.
6

Storefronts and Medical

Storefronts/Medical applies to any role which sells Guns, Armour, or Health. These include;

  • Gun Dealer/Black Market Dealer
  • Doctor

The rules for Storefronts/Medical-based Roles are as follows;

  • You cannot deny service (Unless the Player does not have a Gun License for Dealers)
  • You must always have some form of Store/Medical Bay
  • Black Market Dealing is illegal, so avoid open attention
  • Selling Guns without a license is an arrestable offense
7

Legal and Law Enforcement

Law Enforcement covers any role which is responsible for creating and upholding laws. This includes;

  • The Mayor
  • Police Chief
  • Police

As this covers a lot of important information, there are several important things to consider for each respective role;

  • Laws cannot be created or enforced which contradict the Default Ruleset
  • Only the Police Chief and Police can enforce laws
  • Mayors and Police may be corrupt. However, Police Chiefs cannot be corrupt
  • As a Police Chief, you must follow all Police rules, and actively work to remove any Corruption in your precinct
  • Wants or Warrants always need valid proof
  • You must immediately respond to a Hostage scenario. The Police Chief is responsible for paying the ransom

As a Police Chief or non-corrupt Police Officer, your job is to maintain the law. This means you should;

  • Check for Gun and Vehicle Licenses and arrest Drivers/Dealers/Players without valid licenses
  • Ensure Players are driving safely and to the Driving Test Standards
  • Arrest Criminals with evidence, such as witnessing Meth Cooks or Muggings
  • As a Mayor, you may demote Corrupt Police Officers

However, Mayors or Police can be corrupt. This means they can turn a blind eye to only the above rules for money. Police Chiefs can advise the Mayor to demote a corrupt Police Officer, but if the Mayor is also corrupt they may need to look into a Hitman to forcefully removing the Mayor from Office through other measures.

8

Kidnapping and Raiding

Raids, as with general RDM Rules, require a valid reason to be enacted, and will be treated as RDM if not sufficient. Both Raids and Kidnaps must be expressed through /y

Only certain roles can enact raids as below;

  • Police/SWAT can raid Arms Dealers without valid licenses
  • Police/SWAT can raid Drug Dens
  • Police/SWAT can raid in Kidnapping scenarios
  • Mob Bosses may raid the Police Department to free Players in Jail
  • Private Military Contractors may join any raids if contracted to do so

Kidnapping has several rules that apply to both the Kidnappers and the Police Service

  • Only Mob Bosses may kidnap
  • The Maximum ransom for a hostage is $10,000
  • The Police Chief may choose to pay the ransom
  • If ordered by the Police Chief, Police/SWAT can raid in a kidnapping scenario
9

What is allowed?

FearRP
FearRP is another traditional rule, meaning a player cannot react to Muggings with their own firearms or run away. All weapons now have deploy times before they can be fired, so Players can fight back if they are quick enough. Lighter or more expensive weapons have much faster loading times compared to cheaper or heavy weapons, so a light sidearm is advised for defence. Some roles such as Hitmen can also pull out their weapons much faster than a typical Citizen, making them a bad target. Muggers now have to pick their targets wisely, and Players should always be ready for an attack.

Self-Supply
Any Arms Dealers are allowed to Self-Supply and use their own weapons in self-defence. If an Arms Dealer is using their own stock aggressively, the Competition should consider investing in some Hired Defence of their own, or pursue an aggressive demotion through a Contract...

Advertisements
RP Actions, such as raids, muggings, and Kidnaps, do not need to be advertised publicly, but must be expressed to the Target Player through /y for logging purposes, and to make sure the RP action is valid.

Metagaming
You may use any communication outside of the game with other players. Keep in mind, rules such as Griefing and teaming with other Factions also apply to this, and can be punished as such.
