Recommended Posts

West Coast Roleplay
In-game Rules:

 

1. Common Sense

Common Sense

 

The definition of "Common Sense" is literally using your Common Sense, read under for more information.

Be kind to other players, and think before you type. There is no need to cause an OOC beef in-game. Take that stuff to the forums. Any hateful speech towards the admin team are not tolerated. They are there to help you. 

Roleplay at all times. You are not allowed to break server rules, because you think someone else did it. In regards to that, you should not disrupt, stall or void roleplay unless an admin tells you to. Examples of this is:

  • Filing 100 reports when the players are not deserving of punishment. 
  • Repeatedly refusing to roleplay until an admin comes to your aid after you made a report. Keep roleplaying, we'll be there shortly. 
  • Quitting the game to avoid different circumstances, like getting arrested, being robbed, being kidnapped etc. 

If you're in a roleplay situation, and another player tries to interrupt, or destroy the roleplay OOCly, ignore them, report them, and continue to RP. We'll be there shortly. However if an admin tries to contact you OOCly in the middle of a roleplay, you must respond. Refusing to respond, or doing as the admin says, may result in a punishment. 

The admin team has the final say. If they say that you're doing something you shouldn't do, you must listen, and follow their instructions. It does not matter if it is specifically stated in the rules, or not. You must comply. If you for what ever reason believe a staff member is abusing their power, please report them in the "report an admin" section, and it will be handled by the management within 24 hours. If you have complaints regarding the management, the server owner(s) will respond within 24 hours.

In IC chat, speak only ICly, and in English. If you for what ever reason want to speak another language ICly, you must use /accent to set a language tag to your character. However you must write in English. The only place we allow other languages are in /pm. Do not use internet language ICly (lol, omg, etc). IF you need to go out-of-character, be sure to use /b <text>. 

If you need help with a command, or have general questions, like "Where can I change my clothes?" etc, be sure to use /ask <question>. If you on the other hand have trouble with another player, or encounter a situation that requires an admin, use /report - and we'll be there shortly.

You may be AFK for up to 15 minutes here at WC-RP. After that you get auto-kicked. Do not go AFK in public. If someone attempts to RP with you while you are AFK - you are the one to blame. Not the person attempting to RP with you. So go AFK in public at your own risk. 

Intentionally baiting the police to create a chase / situation with them is forbidden.

 

- Punishments may vary from a verbal reaction, to an admin-jail or ban, depending on the circumstances. 

 

 

2. Metagaming

Metagaming

 

The definition of "Metagaming" is using information received in an Out-Of-Character manner, In-Character.

This is roleplay 101, do NOT use information you received Out of Character, In Character. This rule applies to both information given to you by other players, as well as their name tags. Also, you may not pass on information you received on one character, to another character. 

Examples of breaking this rule:

  • Fredrik_Damm reads Andrew_Burns' OOC nametag, and roleplays that he now knows him.
  • Fredrik_Damm gains IC knowledge that Thomas_Wyatt is going to be at the parking lot in Santa Maria at 8pm. Fredrik_Damm switches character to Irwin_Ward, who has an IC beef with Thomas_Wyatt, and decides to go there to attack him.
  • Fredrik_Damm sends a PM to Sidney_Leyman and tells him that he's being kidnapped. Sidney_Leyman then changes his IC plans in a way that he can help Fredrik_Damm.
  • * Fredrik_Damm wakes up at the hospital, and begins to think about killing the men who attacked him.


Other underlaying rules:

  • Using VoIP programs, such as Teamspeak, Skype, Ventrilo and Discord to communicate IC whilst in-game is forbidden. The PD, FMD, FBI, and Government faction may use VoIP to discuss and follow up on chases, but their main activity should remain in the IC chat. 
  • You may not spam. This includes all chats and functions both in-game and community wide services.

 

- Punishments may vary from a verbal reaction, to an admin-jail or ban, depending on the circumstances.

7. Robbery / Scams

Spoiler

 

The definition of "Robbery" is a roleplay situation where another player attempts to steal from you.

To perform or to participate in a robbery of any sort, all parties involved must have minimum 10 playing hours and rank 2. Use /levelup to rank up.

The robbery rules here at WC-RP allow you to rob a person for up to $5000, as well as any items he has on his body. Hereunder, drugs, weapons, special items, materials etc. There is no limit on how many of the guns, drugs, special items or materials you may take. You may not force a player to hand over ownership of any properties, or vehicles. You may not force a player to withdraw money from the bank account in order for you to rob it. You may not force a player to open his house safe, business safe, or locker for you to rob. You may rob someone's trunk, except money, if the car was with the robbery target when the roleplay started.

When you rob a person, you may not rob the same person again for the next 12 hours. You may not kill the person you are robbing, unless you have kidnapped the person.

Robberies must be performed in a realistic manner. This includes that you have a sensible motivation to be performing the robbery. Players should also not be performing robberies, unless they have a reasonable reason to actually perform robberies. (e.g. wealthy people wouldn't need to perform little reward robberies) You should not be performing high risk / little reward robberies. You should not use unrealistic equipment like expensive assault rifles or sports cars when robbing others, unless it is a part of a bigger RP situation that requires you to have such equipment. You should also not perform robberies in highly populated areas or safezones with many potential witnesses. 

 

The definition of "Scams" is a roleplay situation where another player attempts to trick you.

You may scam other players for up to $100,000 if the player has more than 250 playing hours. Use /id to check someone's playing hours. You may not scam someone on the cost of their house or business.

Here at WC-RP we have a strict policy on farming. Hereunder: skill and money farming. If caught abusing commands, or logging in from multiple computers in order to gain more skills / earn more money, you will be banned, and your character and all characters involved will be deleted if unbanned. If you encounter any possible ways to generate skills, or money unfairly, be sure to contact an admin. If caught abusing these commands, you will be banned from the WC-RP services.

11. Deathmatch

Spoiler

The definition of "Deathmatch" is killing another person without sufficient roleplay reason.

Unnecessary provoking falls under this rule as well. Terrorism is forbidden, unless approved before by lead admin+.

This rule also includes revenge killing, which means killing someone simply because they killed you. When you get killed your memory is wiped from all RP leading up to the moment you were killed. This includes knowledge of any person / group of people involved in killing you.

If the LSFMD manages to save you, you may RP memory of your attackers, and the RP leading up to the attack.

If you are killed, and you do not know the reason, you may use /report, and an admin will clarify why.

Only members of the Hitman faction can do contract kills, unless otherwise has been approved by a faction/organization manager+.

 

 

12. Third Party Modifications

Spoiler

 

The definition of "Third Party Modification" is any files in your GTA San Andreas folder, or that may effect your game in any way, that did not come from the game install itself, or from installing SA-MP 0.3.DL.

 

Using third party modifications at WC-RP that may give you an unfair advantage, is forbidden. Be ware of this before you install modifications. If we find out that you are using any modifications that may give you any unfair advantages, you will be permanently banned. If you have suspicions that someone might be using illegal modifications, you are obligated to report them. If you in any way help them, or attempt to make them use their modifications in your favor, you will also be permanently banned from WC-RP's services. Ban evading by changing your IP goes under this rule, and will get you a firewall ban (all WC-RP services will be unavailable, forever). If you ban evade to gain the administrator who banned you's attention, for example to encourage them to look at your ban appeal, the ban appeal will be instantly denied.

Exceptions:

  • Keybinds are allowed.
  • Camera Hack may be used, but only under supervision from management. 
  • Skins that change the average height, width, etc of GTA:SA's original skins and objects are forbidden.
  • We encourage you not to use skin mods, as 0.3.DL allows custom skins that are distributed by the server. 

 

- Punishment: Permanent Ban. 

 

 

13. VPNs

Spoiler

 

Connecting to WC-RP's services should only be done through your network. Using VPNs or similar services to mask your IP, is not permitted. 

Exceptions:

  • If you for some reason can not connect to WC-RP's services without using a VPN, please contact us, and we'll grant you permission. Remember that in this case, it's better to ask for permission, then for forgiveness. Contact anyone in the management, and we will add a special note to your account letting all our admins know that you have been granted permission.
  •  

- Punishment: Permanent Ban. 

 

In-game Rules are subject to change without prior notice.
