- Do not break NLR (New Life Rule) - NLR is acting in roleplay upon something which occurred prior your characters last death. Don't return to where you died before 10 minutes has passed. (Just because you are out of your NLR circle does not mean you are not breaking NLR. Being able to visually see your NLR zone means you are breaking NLR.)

- No Freebies. Your money is your own and we'd like you to keep it that way. To be more specific, just don't give other players money for nothing (unless they're hobo, but be realistic with what you donate). This is to keep the server fair, fun for new players and balanced.

- If you decide to build outside your house it must look realistic I.e No huge/glowing walls.
- Additionally, your buildings must be realistic, I.e No 15 foot walls, corridors of death, stone barriers hanging from your ceiling. Keep your structures roleplay suitable. If you real buildings don't have it then you probably shouldn't build it. If you're uncertain then call an admin.

- The entrance to your base may only include one fading door.
- A base perimeter wall must be placed on an already existing wall in the map, base wall must be connected to a already existing wall on the map, and be up to the same height as the already existing wall.

- Only build inside your property. No objects can be placed outside of your owned property, excluding fenced off ground.
- No unfair entrances . Entrances where players have to crouch/jump to get into the base, or in any part of the base are not allowed, entrances should be wide enough to fit 2 players minium,
- No pixel holes. Don't build tiny holes to shoot through, a shooting hole needs to be at least the height and width of a keypad. Holes cannot be curved by a fading which can be opened by pressing a button/keypad.
- Fading doors must be linked to keypads. All fading doors must be linked to at least one keypad for each side of the door, the keypad cannot be hidden, and must be obvious.

Exceptions to these rules can be made by Super/Server Admins in certain situations for some buildings/bases, however this is not a guarantee and is unlikely.

Greenzone Rules:
Where are greenzones? Greenzones are located at car dealers, the Nexus, the bank and in the close proximity of all ATM's
Do not initiate the following RP in the green zone. Mugging, killing and stealing.
Do not use the Greenzone(s) as a safe haven If you run into a Greenzone whilst in an RP situation, you remain in that RP situation despite it being a greenzone. i.e you can still get arrested if wanted
By committing a crime in the Greenzone you wave your right to the protection of the zone If you pull a gun out, have printers or whatnot you very well might end up being arrested.




Car rules:

- Be mindful of bystanders. If someone walks out onto the road you must try and stop.
- You can use your car as a weapon as long as you have an RP reason If your life is in danger you may use your car as a weapon, only to kill those who threaten you.
- Park sensibly, when leaving your car try to park it in a proper place, failure to do so allows traffic police to ban your license and tow your vehicle.
- This isn't so much a rule as a clarification. The police CAN still ban your license after you've died, this is to prevent people from getting themself killed to evade a license ban.




Police rules:

- Police can not break the law, while police can take bribes to 'forget' crimes, they can not commit crimes them self, such as buying printers / murder.
- Police must obey the command of the chief and the Mayor. If the chief or mayor tells you to do something and you do not you'll be demoted!
- Police should only shoot if the other person is a threat. This means if there holding a weapon out or posing a threat.
- Don't random arrest, if you are arresting someone, they must have clearly broken a law which you can name.
- Don't spam checkpoints. A checkpoint is a barricade in the road to stop vehicles passing, a checkpoint must look nice, allow legitimate traffic through, and be necessary.
- Don't place hits. This is seen as FailRP as you're paying someone for murder.
- Don't point your gun at people randomly. Police should only point guns at people who are breaking the law / being arrested.
- Don't random stun. Police should only stun gun people who attempt to resist arrest or run from a scene.
- Don't ban someone's driving license if they are in their car and are moving. Get the suspect out of their car or at least make them stop before you ban their license.



Gang rules:

- Gangs must use up to two buildings. You may not buy a third building, If you do want to move building you must remove all the items from your previous one.
- Gun dealers and Government teams cannot be part of a gang. This is seen as FailRP and job abuse as it goes against their job role.
- Gang wars must last a sensible time. Two gangs can declare war, but this can't go on too long to avoid pissing people off.
- Only KOS if both gangs agree on a war. Two gangs can not KOS each other unless both gangs have agreed on a conflict.





Permanent laws. These are base laws which exist, no matter what the Mayor has said in-game. Contradicting these as the Mayor is job abuse and FailRP.

Business Rules

1. A public business cannot deliberately devalue a business. To prevent scamming shareholders, a business cannot withdraw more than it is earning without a valid reason. If shareholders feel like a business is being abused, they can make a report on the forums. If someone abuses a businesses funds, they are at risk of being banned for scamming, and at the very least having money taken from them to compensate losses.

2. A public business can inflate the businesses price by injecting cash to the treasury to inflate share prices to prevent a hostile takeover (share buyout by single individual). After that is over, the money used to inflate the businesses value can be withdrawn without breaking rule 1.

3. Businesses can place a NON INTRUSIVE marketing structure on the street to promote the business. The marketing structure must be REASONABLY SIZED and NON INTRUSIVE (Example below). If a staff member thinks your structure is not sensible, they may remove it.

4. The management of a BANK must not abuse treasury funds provided by account holders. If a banks treasury is less than 60% of the money stored in all their customer accounts, the bank is considered illegitimate. If this is not resolved quickly, we may replace your management with others.


Other rules:

- Admins final word. If a situation is deemed unsuitable, however is not listed in the rules, the responding admin may make their own decision. If you deem the admins decision unsuitable, make a forum complaint.

- Custom job titles. You can havea custom job title only while playing as a citizen / suited citizen. Your custom job title must not be the title of an already existing job, and must not be something which might merit illegal RP.
EXAMPLE [Setting your job title to Gun Dealer as a citizen is not allowed, setting your job title to fisherman is allowed. Setting your job title to something like 'Government Official' is not allowed, as it would merit you entering government areas.]

- Watch your profanity. Try to not deliberately use offensive / toxic language. Deliberately being offensive with no RP purpose is not suitable behaviour.

-Don't be a bully. We have a zero tolerance policy on this. Going out of your way to harass other players is unacceptable and will be met with serious consequence.

-You aren't allowed to scam people under any circumstances in or out of role play (This includes selling people your printers then leaving straight away)

- Do not take admin situations into your own hands.[/b[ You are not staff, under no circumstances take admin situations into your own hands. Apply for staff if you wish to help deal with these situations.
- When TP'ing to players, both parties must not be in RP This is also why it is vital you ask for permission before you TP, so you know if the other party is in RP.



Disclaimer: Breaking any of these VIP rules leaves you subject to losing your powers temporarily, or even permanently in some cases. Furthermore these rules are subject to change at any point so check regularly

Useful tips:

If you store your money in the ATM's it will remain safe and not be dropped on death.

Holding C will allow you to see your inventory, from there you can use a weapon that you've previously stored.
