MISC RULES

Killing people at NPCs has no purpose, you don't gain anything and therefore is RDM and a ban-able offense >

Do not demote people from jobs for breaking server rules, it is intended for RP demotes only (unless there are no staff online). Ex: Demoting a cop for not arresting someone without a firearm license
->

If someone failed to perform their job functions correctly (Ex: A cop let their friend have a gun without a license) you can /demote them. If they broke a rule against you (Ex: RDM) you could demote them but we highly suggest calling a sit. Contact someone before calling a /demote on them for breaking a rule against you. If you are unsure, ask for staff assistance.

 

Additional Info:

This would give players the choice between RPing their failed interaction out or escalating it to a staff issue. Encouraging players to work their own problems out may help resolve both confusion about what exactly constitutes "RP" in our rule (since you can say a cop RDMing is police brutality and that's a valid demote) and assists our staff with the possibility of less sits being called. The difference between a situation involving 2 users and a situation where staff get involved is the users choosing to escalate it or not.

DO trade at your own discretion and do your research. Being scammed 1 Mil or more DakrRP cash or any amount of IRL money or Suga Dollars is subject to review and punishment. Ask for a staff witness if you are unsure of a transaction
-->
DO trade at your own discretion and do your research. Being scammed 1 Mil or more DarkRP cash or any amount of Suga Dollars is subject to review and punishment. Make sure to use !trade to verify the legitimacy of any transaction.

(Removed IRL money and asking for staff witnesses since trading/selling IRL money is not allowed and !trade serves as evidence for trade scamming.)

DO listen to staff. Even if something isn't explicitly mentioned in the MOTD, does not mean it's okay.
-->
DO listen to staff. Even if something isn't explicitly mentioned in the MOTD, does not mean it's okay. If you have an issue with a staff ruling, take it up on the forums instead of in-game.

(Encourages users to make a report instead of ingame.)

Added DO warn users either 3 times in /advert, or once using the E menu giving at least 3 seconds before defending yourself to the general rules section.

(Clarification on a system as old as time.)

DO NOT advert / talk / display anything about selling or buying things in game for currencies other than DarkRP, in game items or Sugar Dollars
-->
DO NOT advertise or participate in any trades on the server or our platforms that involve trading anything outside of our server for any currency on our server (ex: Steam game or PayPal for DarkRP cash, Sugar Dollars, or in-game items)
 
(This provides complete clarity on this rule to avoid any confusion)

DO NOT attempt to loophole any rules.
-->
DO NOT attempt to loophole any rules. Just because something isn’t written down, doesn’t make it okay. Staff have the final say in sits, if you disagree then you must appeal the decision on the forums, not in-game.

DO NOT counter actions before getting involved.
-->
DO NOT counter actions before getting involved. Ex: Attacking a cop before he knows that you’re associated with the person he is arresting. The cop should know you’re together to prevent confusion.

(Giving an example here gives more clarity to what this rule actually means.)

Added  DO NOT counter actions that you are not involved with. Ex: Killing a cop for cuffing someone or killing raiders without having any intent to take over their raid. 

(This is more clarification into this rule)

DO NOT switch jobs during a raid or other RP interaction.
-->
DO NOT switch jobs during a raid or other RP interaction. If you switch jobs in a raid for example, the RP situation is over instantly and you must stop.

(Just more clarification.)

Removed DO NOT call staff for a single RDM, go talk to the person who killed you or ask in OOC why they killed you.

Added DO try to talk to the person who RDM’d you before calling a sit

(This made it seem like you shouldnt call sits for a single RDM, and caused confusion on whether a single rdm sit should be taken.)

Removed DO NOT call staff for general questions, ask people in OOC or the forums

(Staff should be there to help a user for general questions, and sometimes there are just things you don't really want to ask in ooc or the forums.)

DO NOT Use Boomboxes to play ear-rape or racial slurs/racist content
-->
DO NOT Use Boomboxes to play ear-rape/racial slurs/racist content or overly-sexual content

(This is to clarify that we don't allow overly sexual content on boomboxes.)

Moved DO NOT abuse your VIP rank, this includes false votebanning/kicking, and calling votebans and votekicks while staff members are online. Abuse can result in your VIP being revoked. to general rules.

Added CNTAP: Change name to avoid punishment to Terminology

Added CNTAP: John kills Billy for no reason, and changes his name to avoid being caught by the staff team. to Terminology

Added I (RDM/RDA): Intentional (RDM/RDA) to Terminology

(These are things that players frequently dont know the meaning of, this solves that issue.)

Added Max Bank Heist Time: 20 minutes.

(This was done to let users completely use their bank c4's that last 15 minutes. The other 5 minutes is given as a sort of "grace period" to grab everything and get out.)




Edited a few grammar mistakes as well.

March 22nd Changelog

 

Added in to the cop section. This give more clarification when it's okay to kill or arrest someone for trespassing in the pd.

Default PD Area Restrictions (Unless law stating otherwise)

Outside PD - Non Restricted
Inside PD Lobby - Non Restricted, unless on lock down.
Past PD Lobby - Restricted. Results in arrest on sight or kill on sight if the user is considered hostile.
Inside Mayor's Office - Restricted. Kill on sight.

Added into the Miscellaneous section. This gives the ability to have fun sneaking into the PD without having to call advert.

Sneaking into the PD is allowed without advert as long you do not attack police or raid to PD Bank. You are not allowed to defend yourself. 
Ex: Hobo is allowed to sneak in to jailbreak his friend. Once he's spotted, he can run but not attack the officer, even if attacked.

Added to Default Illegal Activities:

- Assault/Murdering: Killing/attacking a user outside of self defense is illegal, and can result in lethal action from police.

- Mugging: Confronting someone with the intent to steal something from them such as a weapon or money.  Mugging somebody through the E menu on specific jobs.

- Having a firearm without a license: If you are searched and possess a weapon without a license you can be arrested. Police may randomly search you if they have reason to believe you possess an unlicensed weapon, but it is a hostile action and you may fight back.

- Prank calling emergency services: Making prank calls or false reports to the CP may result in you being arrested.



Added to Advert rules:

- Any "You attacked my party/gang member!" variant (You must do this in local text using /y to defend any party member in an RP scenario)


Added to Basing Rules:

- Do not block your doors with props or entities in a way that prevents people from seeing who owns the doors.

- KoS signs are not allowed but you may have Loitering signs. Minimum time for a loiterer to be killed is 5 seconds. Loitering signs extend to the area around the outside of a base, such as the sidewalk around it.

- A public base is a place with open doors such as a restaurant. For your base to be considered a public base, you MUST place a sign indicating it as a "Public Base." You may not have money-making entities inside/it will be treated as a building sign. If the base does have closed and locked doors or entities, call staff to report a false public base. If the base does have locked doors, fading doors, or entities call staff to report a false public base.

- When inside of the Chill Zone your builds may only be public bases and cannot have entities inside of them.


Removed from Examples of Good/Bad Players:
 

- Calling staff because he doesn't know if his base is allowed

- Calling staff because he doesn't know what his job does


Edits to Party/Gang Rules:

- If you're going to kill someone because they attacked your party member, you need to make sure they know you're together BEFORE you assist in a roleplay scenario.  (local chat with yell or voice(not OOC/Advert/Voice)). Not doing so will cause confusion and most likely result in a sit which no one wants. (This applies to raiding as well)

- Being in a party or gang doesn't mean you will not die/be raided/kicked/harassed by your own party and gang. Don't call staff members for internal issues you're dealing with unless it becomes a serious problem such as Toxicity or Harassment.


 

Removed from good party/gang member


- Leaving the party/gang 

- Never join another party/gang with those people and spread the word



Added to Cop Rules/Mayor Rules:

- Cops/Mayor can base with users that aren’t committing illegal activities (Criminals)

- You may NOT make saying something AOS or a fine

- You may NOT force a player to change their in game name


Added to Good/Bad Laws:

Good:

- You must change your Job Name to "__________" in order to serve on the police force

Bad:
-Swearing is a 5k fine or AOS
- You must change your In-Game Name to "__________" in order to serve on the police force



Added Terrorist Rules:


- When committing a terrorist attack with !terrorstart, you can only kill cops for the first 5 minutes. If you're still alive after that time, you can kill civilians

- Walking up to a terrorist during an attack is not a good idea for civilians, doing this can possibly result in lethal force from a terrorist.

- Party assisting is not allowed for non-terrorists, if you want to RDM, become a terrorist. You may however passively assist terrorists by healing them, or giving them items to use if you support their cause.

- Terrorists can ONLY commit terror attacks OUTSIDE on or above solid ground (Including rooftops)

- Terrorists can NOT commit terror attacks in buildings, underground, in the ocean or on the islands in the ocean.

- Terrorists may NOT build or be inside of megabases, or any prop bases during a terror attack.

- Terrorists may raid, base and megabase when they are NOT on an active terror attack.

- If a terror attack is started while you are in an off-limits area, do not attack anyone unless attacked, and head to the closest area allowed for attacks. You will not be in trouble if you follow this rule.


Edited Hobo Rules:

- You can legally own guns by default, but you may not raid.

- The Hobo Lord has the ability to megabase by himself if need be.

- You may NOT micspam overly sexual content, noises intended to hurt users ears(Loud music does not fall under this category), or racist/extremely hateful content.
- You may micspam anything as a Hobo class as long as it isn't listed as not allowed.  You also may micspam as any other job if the audio played is related to the jobs RP. If the audio played is deemed not to be RP related you will be asked to stop.
