Server Rules: Index Section 1: General Rules Section 2: Discrimination(and bullying) Section 3: Roleplay Standards Section 4: Metagaming/Powergaming Section 5: New life rule Section 6: Death Matching Section 7: Whitelisted Factions Section 8: Cheating, Exploitingand Hacking Section 9: Advertising Section 10: Zones Section 11: Combat Logging/Storing Section 12: HM Treasury/APD Lockup Section 13: AAA/Taxi Jobs General Rules 1.1 Selling/trading You are not permitted to sell or trade any in-game items or currency for real life money/items. 1.2 Microphone Only! This is a “microphone only” server, typing is only used for out-of-character (OOC) information!. 1.3 AFK Going AFK is sometimes required, however, if you need to leave for longer than 10 minutes, please do ensure to log out!. If we notice you’re AFK, we will kick you. 1.4 Offensive Names. Any offensive player or gang names will result in a temporary ban until you, or we, have changed it. 1.5 Trolling Trolling is a big “no no”, respect people's roleplay, If you are caught trolling, you will receive a ban. Examples of trolling are; soundboards and/or voice changes, running around police in circles, shouting “piggy piggy piggy”, you get the idea. 1.6 RESERVED FOR PEOPLE WE DON'T LIKE AND USED TO COVER WHATEVER WE WANT/SO WE CAN BAN PEOPLE EVEN IF WE ARE WRONG. (jk, inside joke) 1.7 Traffic Collisions If you are involved in a road traffic accident with another car, you are not permitted to rob/kill/arrest each other, this extends to gang members/other police, you can not get 1 cop/gang member to “accidentally” hit a car then another arrests/rob them. (repair continue the chase). *Additional* If a Police witnesses or is a part of an RTC that was caused by dangerous driving, They can proceed with legal procedures. Using this as baiting will be considered VDM/poor RP. 1.8 Threats to ban/report. Threats to ban in Sidechat/Directchat/PM is against the rules. If you believe a rule has been broken then request the player to join Teamspeak and try to resolve. Threatening to ban will result in a Ban. Players supporting those that have been evading will be banned under this rule. 1.9 Teleporting. The act of teleporting such as Logging out and logging back in to gain an in-game advantage or respawning to get to a different town faster are both subject to disciplinary! Please message a member of staff on TeamSpeak if you need to log out and log back in for any reason to ensure you are not flagged for teleporting. 1.10 Stick to the rules! If someone else is breaking rules, it doesn’t give you permission to break them in return Example, If a car VDM’s you in the Kavala green zone, it doesn’t give you permission to shoot them. Speak to the person on TeamSpeak or contact a staff member. if you can not resolve it, report it. Discrimination 2.1 We are an adult community, people swear and say derogatory comments, we understand it is part of the culture (sadly), so you will not be punished for slip of the tongue mistakes, but just respect each other and apologise if you offend anyone. What will not be tolerated is direct insults/attacks towards any member of our community that includes in-game, on TeamSpeak or the forum, this includes Racism and Homophobia. No direct discrimination of any kind will be tolerated. Roleplay Standards Not everyone has the same level of roleplay, but all attempts should be made to roleplay before engaging in combat. This can be down to a Staff Members’ interpretation of the incident. If it is deemed not sufficient roleplay, ie “put your hands up or die 3,2…” *shot dead*. We will try to resolve it beforehand but disciplinary action may be taken. 3.1 Always Roleplay. On our server, you are required to stay in roleplay at all times, breaking roleplay ruins the fun for everyone in that situation, and even those just listening. If you need to talk to the person outside of roleplay, wait until the situation is over, then contact them politely on Teamspeak or via side chat and just say “do you mind if we have a chat about what just happened”. If you are quite angry, we suggest taking a small break before contacting them to calm down so the resolution is more civilised, there is always members of staff available to assist you with a resolution if needed. Demanding “TS NOW!” will probably get you kicked. 3.2 Adult themed roleplay. Adult themed roleplay happens, it is an adult community, however, if you find it uncomfortable you need to type in side chat to let your “captors” know. The captors are to cease their actions on this request, but if they continue, you are permitted to exit the game. No punishments will be awarded for leaving, but try to gather any evidence you can. 3.3 Combat Reviving. Combat reviving is not permitted - Anyone that is caught combat reviving will face removal from all white-listed factions. We understand that in some circumstances people are not aware if combat is ongoing when they go to revive a player. If you see someone reviving during combat you are to issue a warning shot, if they still proceed to revive the player, you are permitted to shoot the reviving player, regardless of faction. This does not mean you can shoot a medic for reviving someone you do not want reviving, you have words use them. 3.4 Hobo Initiations. You can only initiate combat with an individual/group if you are armed. 3.5 Friendly Hostage. You are not permitted to take one of your own gang members hostage. 3.6 Fake Theft Reports. You are not permitted to report your own vehicle stolen unless it has actually been stolen. 3.7 Active Firefight If you are driving around during an active firefight and you get killed it is not RDM, this does not mean you can just shoot anyone driving past, it needs to be an "Active" fight, see rules below, if a gunfight is ongoing ie there is actual shooting you need to make an attempt to leave, if you do not leave you can be shot (value your life). It is only an "Active" fire fight if there is actual shooting going on or you are waiting for someone to peak. If the person you shoot is not involved in the situation and can prove they did not know it was an Active fight ie no shots was fired, you need to comp them or it will be treated as RDM. Driving around in a fight just to be shot at so you can join in will be classed as Poor RP. Shooting at someone that is clearly just passing by will be treated as RDM. 3.8 Spin to win. If someone is pointing a gun at you telling you to do something do not try and 180 them, this is “failRP”, give up your stuff and actually roleplay. 3.9 VTOL Aircraft VTOLs are not permitted to enter city airspace, they are loud and ruin Roleplay. 3.10 Helicopter Trolling Helicopters are not permitted to fly low around cities keep them above 300m unless landing or taking off, be warned, we’ll delete the chopper and you’ll fall to the floor. 3.11 Backpacking Weapons If you put a weapon in a backpack/vehicle or holstering a pistol during a gunfight you are no longer allowed to take part in that fight, you are to leave the situation, this does not mean you will not be shot, if you were seen backpacking a weapon, you are still a threat and can be fired upon, you are to leave the situation as fast as possible or re-initiate, if you wish to stay in the fight, DO NOT put your weapon in your backpack either keep it in your hands or holster it (unless pistol then it stays out). 3.12 Life Server! This is a Life Server, although we can respawn and keep our licenses and money, treat each life like it's the only one you've got... This means no Kamikaze! Respect your life and Value your life Please note, sometimes fighting for your life is valuing your life. 3.13 Poor RP Poor roleplay is when the standard of RP was not up to the level we require on our server, each situation will be dealt with separately, and we will not say you can say x, y and z and that's good enough, as then that's all that would be said, but to try and put it in context here is an example: Hands up or you will be shot 3..2..1..dead = poor Hands up or you will be shot 3..2..1...cmon buddy don't make me shoot you....3..2..1..dead = not poor 3.14 Negotiator Violations You are not permitted to take unarmed Police negotiators hostage or kill them in any situation, but if they are armed (including taser) they are not a negotiator. You are not permitted to rob the Unarmed Police Negotiator you can search him to confirm he is unarmed, but you are not to touch his vehicle. 3.15 Warning Shots You can issue warning shots to air vehicles with tracer rounds. If they fail to leave you can shoot them down. For police, this must be aimed to disable the air vehicle, this does not include killing the pilot unless they’re confirmed to be hostile, or all attempts to disable the vehicle have failed. 3.16 Co-pilot exploit You can not use the co-pilot exploit to leave the engine on. If you exit the helicopter and there is nobody in the pilot/co-pilot seat the engine is to be turned off. 3.17 Gang Uniforms/Tags All owners of gang bases must wear the gang uniform or have gang tags to take part in any gang fights, they are also not permitted to work with anyone from other gangs. Metagaming/Powergaming Metagaming Metagaming is the use of any information in-game that your character would not normally have. To that end, we have some basic rules to help you. 4.1 Names You are not permitted to use someone's name without them giving it to you. (police can check driving licenses as long as it is within roleplay). 4.2 Direct Communications If you are restrained/zip-tied/detained, you are STILL permitted to talk to your friends on Teamspeak, however, you must broadcast all your “transmissions” in direct chat, If you are Downed you are NOT permitted to talk on Teamspeak. 4.3 Unconscious Communications If you are tased or knocked out, you are not permitted to speak on Teamspeak until the animation is over. 4.4 Immersion Restraints If you’ve been released, but are still in proximity to those not in communication with you, it is still requested that you continue “transmissions” in direct chat. Telepathy would be nice, but ruins immersion. 4.5 Radio Confiscation If your “captives” state they are taking your radio, phone or communications device, you must mute your TeamSpeak. (You still have your GPS unless they physically remove it). 4.6 Name Grabbing You are not permitted to use in-game mechanics to find out who someone is. ie. Tilda key, scroll wheel, give item system, Key Chain, etc. 4.7 New life vehicles If you have died within roleplay, you can not use Keychain to locate your vehicle. This doesn’t apply if a friend has keys and did not die. 4.8 Stream sniping Stream sniping is a big no no, using any information you see from a stream is classed as metagaming and will result in a ban. 4.9 Police Names You can only identify police wearing their standard uniform by their rank unless their name is given. Powergaming 4.10 Power gaming Power gaming is basically creating impossible situations that are outside the mechanics of the game. For example, do not sit in the back of someone’s car and tell the driver “I have got a gun to your head”, this ruins the whole fun of the situation, “I have rigged the building to explode”, “I smell drugs!”. 4.11 Unlawful Searches Police can not just randomly search a vehicle without just cause to do so. New life rule A new life means you have no memories of your previous life and no information on what you were previously doing. You still remember your gang members, but anyone outside of the gang you no longer know. 5.1 You are NOT permitted to return to situations that occurred outside of the redzone or capture points, you are permitted to return to redzone situations as long as you still stay 1km away and wait 15 minutes first. 5.2 You cannot remember how you died. 5.3 You cannot remember anyone’s name other than those in your gang. 5.4 You must remain 1km from where you died for 15 minutes. 5.5 You do not remember the location of your vehicle, and cannot use the Key distance to locate it. 5.6 Police may spawn back at a bluezone if they do not leave the bluezone for their NLR duration as long as no attack on the bluezone is taking place. The New Life Rule is in effect when: You log out and come back online. The server restarts (unplanned). You have died within roleplay. You have died in a road traffic incident. The New Life Rule is NOT in effect when: The server restarts (planned). You have been VDM’d (see VDM rule). You have been RDM’d (see RDM rule). Deathmatching RDM: Random Deathmatch 6.1 RDM is when someone kills another without any form of roleplay, ie someone shoots someone without a single word said. If you have been killed by RDM, NLR does not take effect. It is not RDM if the person was roleplaying before shooting no matter how minimal the RP was, that would be considered Poor RP (see Roleplay Standards rule). VDM: Vehicle Deathmatch 6.2 VDM is when someone intentionally uses their vehicle as a weapon, whether it be vehicle to vehicle or vehicle to a player. There is a VDM script on our server, but anyone found abusing this to gain health or to rob people will be treated as VDM. 6.3 Using a helicopter to prevent someone from taking off is using your vehicle as a weapon and is no longer permitted, this is classed as VDM. 6.4 If you accidentally run someone over during combat you must let them get back up and give me the time to run away this extends to your gang members, they can not shoot someone you just “accidentally” VDM’d. Times when VDM IS allowed: When it is between Hunters, Ifrits and Striders. When a person is stood in front of a vehicle pointing a weapon at the driver, blocking any sort of escape, but all attempts must be made to avoid collisions, and you are not permitted to get out and kill the person, you are to leave the area. If there is unmanned vehicles blocking an entrance, if the cars blow up this is your own fault, if you kill anyone due to it exploding you are to give full compensation. Whitelisted Factions Police The Police are the core of Altis Life, to this end we expect high levels of Roleplay at all times, these rules are server rules, not police rules. 7.1 Police Distribution Police may not abuse the free equipment they are given, ie selling equipment, storing it logging off and logging back on to use it as a civilian. Exception: Police can give away equipment if under duress within RP, however, this does not include the Cyrus, Mar10 and ghost hawk. 7.2 Police Communication Police must be on TeamSpeak and in a police channel whilst in-game and on-duty. 7.3 Police Legalities Police cannot take part in illegal activities whilst part of the Altis Police Force. 7.4 PCSO/CSO Hostage PCSO’s and below can not be taken as a hostage, that includes restraining them. They are to be robbed, allowed to leave or killed (Inform them why beforehand). If they have been robbed and are allowed to leave, they are to move to at least 1km from the incident before they can rejoin the situation. 7.5 Police Backpack Police equipment can be stolen and worn by rebels, apart from the backpacks (they do not exist within roleplay) 7.6 Exploiting backpack (police) Police can not exploit the invisible backpack. If within an RP situation you put something in your backpack, you can not use it until the situation is over. 7.7 Ghosthawk abuse The Police Ghosthawk can shoot at MRAPs when initiated in operations, out of the Red Zone. However their must be a minimum of 2 MRAPs. 7.8 Bluezoned Vehicle If the police take control of someone’s vehicle during a gunfight, they are not permitted to take that vehicle to a blue zone until the situation is over (value your officers lives over equipment!!!!). NHS The NHS is a vital part of Altis Life, to this end, we expect high levels of Roleplay at all times, these rules are server rules, not NHS rules. 7.10 NHS Distribution NHS may not abuse the free equipment they are given, ie selling equipment, storing it logging off and logging back on to use it as a civilian. 7.11 NHS Communication NHS must be on TeamSpeak and in an NHS channel whilst in-game and on-duty. 7.12 Abusing NHS You can not rob from, kill or kidnap a member of the NHS. Cheating, Exploiting and Hacking 8.1 Cheating/Hacking This is one of the only rules that will result in a permanent ban, if you are caught using any form of cheating or hacking, you will be instantly removed from the community. You will not be allowed to appeal your ban. 8.2 Exploiting If you find any sort of in-game exploit, you are to immediately inform a member of staff, do not post it on the forum. If you are caught abusing any form of exploit you will be treated the same as a cheater or hacker (an exploit is using any feature in a way it was not intended, this includes bugs, glitches), e.g using the free trucks from the truck missions for other purposes other than doing truck missions ie HM blocking. Advertising You will not be banned for talking about other communities, nor will you be banned for giving out your personal TeamSpeak address to friends, however, you will be banned for the following: 9.1 Recruiting Recruiting people for another community using our services. 9.2 Advertising Messaging or advertising any other TS or community in-game either with voice or text. Please note, even if you’re not using our TS, we’d like you to be on it for contact in-case of a situation or report. Zones Red zone The red zone is a very dangerous place to be it is marked by the red line. The red zone is the red area and everything inside that area. If combat has started within the red zone and someone leaves the area, combat can still take place. This includes capture points. 10.1 When fighting at the capture points, players must be within the designated red zone to participate in any conflict between groups fighting there. 10.2 You are not permitted to block access to gang bases with vehicles, an excess of unmanned vehicles will be deleted at the discretion of staff, no warnings will be given. Some rules do not apply in this area, they are the following: All Land Vehicle to Land Vehicle contact is allowed in the red zone. RDM - all RDM is allowed in the red zone. Yellow Zone The yellow zone is also known as the Prison Zone. 10.3 This is not a KOS zone, a clear initiation must happen before any shooting takes place. Air vehicles that are clearly hostile and are attempting to land in the Yellow Zone will be disabled. Green Zone Also known as the Safe Zone. 10.4 This is a safe area marked in Green. No killing, shooting or crime of any kind is permitted in this zone (apart from speeding). 10.5 You cannot retreat to green zones for safety. Police are still allowed to use non-lethal force in this area but should provide roleplay prior to engaging! Who doesn’t love a good foot chase? 10.6 You are not permitted to store illegal guns/items in a house inside the greenzone (crime). 10.7 You are not permitted to store your vehicles in the green zone while you are selling items other than apples and peaches. Blue Zone Also known as the Police Zone. 10.8 This area is marked in Blue. Police are permitted to retreat to a blue zone to escape criminals as this is where they have mass numbers (within RP), rebels are not permitted to chase them in there to get their friends back, same as the green zone no killing, shooting or crime of any kind is permitted in this zone. 10.9 Any officers found abusing the blue zone will be banned for exploiting. e.g. running in and out for a gun fight 10.10 With Staff permission, attacks on a police HQ can be authorised, but a minimum of 15 minutes notice will be given to the police in the zone and during that 15 minutes notice and until the attack is declared over by the staff team no person can be sent to prison and no vehicle scrapped in that HQ. This should allow a more realistic police force size to defend the HQ. Police are not allowed to respawn in the blue zone during the assault. Combat Logging/Storing 11.1 Logging off during any form of RP is not permitted, you are to wait until the situation is fully over before exiting the server, that includes waiting for a revive, disagreeing with a roleplay situation, to try and save gear, etc 11.2 If killed you are to fully respawn in a location before logging off. Remember if there was an issue with a situation, you can be compensated. 11.3 If you have been initiated on or the police are chasing you, you are not permitted to run and store cash or go to the garage to store your vehicle, this includes driving your vehicle into the sea, you are to wait for the situation to be fully over before storing cash or storing your vehicle. 11.4 Anyone caught using the end mission/minus exploit will be banned no exceptions. HM Treasury/APD Lockup/Altis Art Gallery 12.1 Negotiations The police MUST send in an unarmed negotiator unless the blasting charge has been placed. 12.2 Negotiator Clearance If negotiations fail, the negotiator must fully leave the HM/Lockup before rejoining the fight (1km). 12.3 Charge Clearance If negotiation is going on during the blasting charge being placed, the negotiator must be given chance to leave the compound, no side is permitted to open fire until the negotiator has left. 12.4 Minimum Police A minimum of 10 cops must be online before an HM/Lockup Robbery is allowed. 12.5 HM/Lockup Quitting Any officer caught logging off purposely to get the number below 10 will face a ban. 12.6 HM/Lockup Zone The area around the HM/Lockup robbery is a very dangerous place, This is a Cops vs Robbers area. Whilst crossfire can happen. Please note, shooting unarmed and uninvolved people is still RDM, however, if they're armed, it's a matter of protection. This does not mean you can shoot officers that are just driving towards or from the compounds if they are involved shoot them, do not shoot them 1km away when they are just driving up the road. 12.7 HM/Lockup Interference No external person/gang is allowed to interfere with the HM/Lockup Robbery until the Vehicles have left the compound, the robbery is classed as started when the first door is being broken into. If anyone from a different gang enters after this point the first gang is to clearly tell them to leave as the robbery is in progress (do not try to rob them then it is your own fault, and they can engage you). If they fail to leave when they have clearly been told then you are to try and resolve it with them and report it if necessary. 12.8 HM/Lockup Vehicles Civilian Only - Once the HM has started all participating civilians are not permitted to use the garage, no storing vehicles and no pulling out of vehicles, e.g. no waiting until the fight is over then going to fetch trucks. Police Only - Police who turn up to the HM are not permitted to retreat and pull out other vehicles to use. Once they return to a garage/bluezone they are no longer allow to return to the HM. 12.9 Gangbase Gold Gold can not be taken to gang bases, either sell it or take it to a house, but you do not retreat to a gang base. 12.10 Art Gallery The Art Gallery is not a combat mission, it is for Roleplay only. Remember: This is an adult community, you do not have to agree with other peoples opinions and beliefs, but you do have to respect it.
