VC:RP Server Rules

Common Sense

General common sense will prosper where the official rules may not. There may be loopholes and inaccuracies contained in the VC:RP server rules and we expect you to use common sense in these situations. If you think that something might be pushing it or against the rules, then it more than likely is. The VC:RP admin team have the ability to apply this rule anywhere they see fit. This rule is for use explicitly by the admin team, it does not apply to reports.

In-Character

Deathmatching (DM)
Definition:
Killing a player without roleplay and/or without sufficient reasoning.
Example: Player A runs up to Player B and shoots them without any roleplay.
Punishment: 20 minutes in admin jail and a playerwarn for Deathmatching.


Revenge Killing (RK)
Definition:
Killing or injuring a player that recently killed you. Once your character gets killed you no longer remember anything about their death, using the OOC knowledge of your characters death and acting on it IC'ly is against the rules. This is tied closely with the 30 minute rule: returning to the scene of your death is not allowed, you must wait 30 minutes before returning, whether it is for your vehicle or anything else.
Example: Player A is killed by Player B. Upon respawning Player A tracks down Player B and kills him for previously killing him.
Punishment: 20 minutes in admin jail and a player warn for Revenge Killing.


Car Ramming / Car Parking
Definition:
Using your vehicle as to injure/kill another player, either by driving into them or parking on top of them
Punishment: Kicked from server & if continued prisoned for 15 minutes and a playerwarn for Car Ramming/Parking.


Powergaming (PG)
Definition:
Roleplaying something that is not possible in real life or forcing a player into a roleplay situation without giving them a chance to respond.
Example: Roleplaying being bullet proof.
Example 2: Player A uses a /me to punch Player B and it knocks them out.
Punishment: 20 minutes in admin jail and a playerwarn for Powergaming.


Metagaming (MG)
Definition:
Mixing Out of Character (OOC) information In-Character (IC).
Example: Player A is getting robbed at the Pizza Stack and he tells his friend via TeamSpeak to come and help him.
Punishment: 25 minutes in admin jail and a playerwarn for Metagaming.


Spam
Definition:
Flooding the chat with same text over and over again.
Punishment: Kick from the server and if continued, 20 minutes in admin jail and a playerwarn for Spam.


Cop-baiting
Definition:
Acting in a manner designed to attract the attention of the Police Department, baiting them into chases for example.
Example: Popping Nos & taking illegal shortcuts in front of Police Officers on patrol in order to get them to pursue you.
Punishment: Kick from the server and if continued, 25 minutes in admin jail and a playerwarn for Cop-baiting.


Non-Roleplay (Non-RP) Behavior
Definition:
Roleplaying in a manner that is not consistent with real life.
Example: Player A takes a head on collision at full speed with Player B in order to stop them in their tracks.
Punishment: 20 minutes in admin jail and a playerwarn for Non-RP Behavior.


Non-RP Advertіsements
Definition:
Using the advertіsement system in a way that is not consistent with real life or outside of its intended purpose.

Punishment: Kicked from the server and repeat offenses will result in 15 minutes in admin jail and a playerwarn for Non-RP Advertisements.


Scamming over $10,000
Definition:
Scamming another player for any amount/value that is over $10,000.
Punishment: 20 minutes in admin jail, a fine equaling 100% of the amount scammed and playerwarn for Scamming.

Punishment: You may initially be slapped by an admin but if continued, 15 minutes in admin jail and a playerwarn for Car Surfing.
Riding in the back of pickups or on the front of bicycle handlebars (if roleplayed correctly) is allowed.


Avoiding IC Consequences
Defininition:
Taking specific actions, either IC or OOC, to avoid IC consequences.
Example: Player A's car flips whilst he is being chased by the VCPD, Player A stays in the vehicle causing him to die.
Punishment: 20 minutes in admin jail, a fine equaling 10% of your total money and a playerwarn for Avoiding IC Concequences.


30 Minute Rule
Definition:
If you are killed in a situation, you may not return to the location of your death for the next 30 minutes.
Example: Player A is killed by Player B, Player A comes back to the scene of his death to collect his car.
Punishment: Kick from the server and if continued 20 minutes in admin jail and a playerwarn for Breaking the 30 minute rule.
If agreed by parties involved in the roleplay, for example if the roleplay is over, this can be overlooked.

EXTRAS
Being AFK/tabbed out in the casino is not allowed

  • This is to prevent users running multiple SA:MP clients and hot-switching between them while doing slots to money farm.
If it's on you, it's on you

  • If you are carrying items in your inventory (materials, weapons, phones, etc.), you cannot roleplay that they are elsewhere.
Protected public areas

  • Any job-related place is considered protected and robberies cannot occur there. Additionally, inside the bank and the general area surrounding the bank as well as inside the PD and the general area surrounding the PD are protected. Marina as well is a protected zone.
  • Kidnappings in protected areas require a strong roleplay reason
You must /rp before a home robbery, unless prior RP has happened that warrants an impromptu break-in.
  • Unfounded, random house robberies are not allowed.
Only official gangs are allowed to do contract killing

  • Contract killing by players who are not members of official gangs will be viewed as DM.
Killing after robberies is not (in most situations) allowed

  • Killing after a robbery when it is not allowed will be viewed as DM.
Publicly announcing, or initiating conversation with players, that you are selling illegal items (weapons, drugs, etc.) is not allowed.

  • Such actions will be viewed as non-RP behavior.
Giving away your assets just before your Character Kill (CK) is not allowed.

Windows can not be roleplayed to be "black out" tinted.

No bunny hopping when in sight/proximity or involvement with other characters. (constantly running and jumping).

-If you're stranded in the middle of nowhere and need to walk across the map at no other option, we get it, it's fine.

Skybox mods are not allowed to be used by anybody.

The PD has the ability to obtain weapons for free (no material cost unlike the arms dealer job). At no point should those weapons ever leave officer hands; do not store them in houses, businesses or vehicles; do not stash them; do not sell them.


  • Viewed as creating/duplicating assets
Leaving people for dead outside of Las Venturas is not allowed, If you are kidnapping them please make sure to only leave them in Las Venturas.

You are responsible for your IP address. Excuses such as "It was my brother/sister/friend/dog!" will not be tolerated.

When robbing players you must abide by the following:


  • Stealing a players phone is not permitted. However, you may temporarily request it from them in order to check texts/contacts/calls etc. You are required to return the phone immediately after.
  • You may not /drop the victims phone or force them to /drop it either.
  • Stealing low value job items that have no resale value (fishing poles/bait/toolkits) is also forbidden unless you have a reasonable RP reason.
Non-RP / Celebrity names are not to be used
  • Using one will result in your character creation being denied until a more appropriate name is selected.
