HighStakesRP FiveM Server Rules of Conduct
Reporting Players or Scenarios
If you have a problem with a player/admin or a scenario in general you must take it to our discord and kepp OOC clear! /report will also get our attention, but PLEASE do not spam.
Using information you gained outside of RP and using it in character.
Use of third party communication programs (ex: Discord, Teamspeak, skype) are not allowed to be used for RP. Only on duty Cops, EMS, and Mechanics (Whitelisted jobs) are allowed to use these "Radio's" while RPing. Anyone caught using these programs to communicate in game information will be banned. Using information you gained from watching someone's live stream or communicating with someone through a stream to Meta-game is not allowed.
Using out of game mechanics to force in game scenarios. EX. Saying you have a bomb strapped to you, this is not possible to do in game so is not allowed. The only exception to this rule is if all parties involved agree to it.
RDM (Random Death Match) is killing someone or intending to kill someone (missing your shot) without a proper RP scenario/storyline/initiation leading up to the interaction. Hitman RP is not allowed and considered RDM.
VDM (Vehicle Death Match) is killing someone or intending to kill someone while in your vehicle, there is no scenario other than being fired upon should you ever kill someone from inside your Vehicle. IMPORTANT â€“ Shooting out of your vehicle is only to be used in self-defense or taking someone hostage, drive-by gameplay will not be allowed. Additionally, intentionally ramming someone elseâ€™s car without a valid reason will be treated as VDM.
Shooting From Vehicles
Shooting out of your vehicle is only to be used in self-defense or keepingÂ hostage at gunpoint during a hostage situation, drive-by gameplay will not be allowed.
Leaving the server when engaged in an active scenario. Ex. You are killed and while you are down you leave before respawning. Ex. Youâ€™re in custody for committing a crime or kidnapped by criminals and you leave so that you donâ€™t have to deal with the scenario.
In this city there is no NLR meaning every single one of your actions have consequences you are NOT to return to your place of death for AT LEAST 15 minutes.
When you RP your death and do /me is dead, you are dead forever and must delete your character.
This pertains to people forcing themselves into scenarios, for example joining a high-speed chase, or shooting a criminal to help the cops and vice versa. This rule is more concerned with scenarios rather than casual social interactions. If there is a medic administering medical treatment donâ€™t go up and randomly start performing CPR rather become a bystander. Everyone wants to watch a bank heist, but donâ€™t ruin the scenario by forcing yourself in.
This rule covers a lot and there is a lot of admin discretion involved. Basically if youâ€™re doing something ridiculous with a general disregard for your life. Driving top speed on the Highway/Freeway is one thing but through the City Streets of Los Santos while driving to get your hair cut is not necessary. Another example is Cop-baiting, we know there are some ballsy people in the real world but we will be deeming intentionally baiting the cops into chases unrealistic. Another example would be going into military base or jail to "jail break" because there is no feasible way you would be able to cross over the fences of an actual military base or enter a jail yard without either being detained or shot on the spot. Entering these areas may result in an immediate ban.
You cannot drive or jump into the water to get away from police.
Valuing your Life
The only excuse for killing your character intentionally (Driving into a gas station, jumping off a building, drowning yourself) you will be expected to perm your character or face repercussions for not valuing your life. Abusing this and switching your character every time you amount some warrants/jail time will result in a permanent ban.
We understand that in RP there is always going to be characters that are ignorant, but derogatory terms like the N word or the F word )and no we don't mean fuck) will not be permitted in any way (Find another word to use).
This rule is simple you may not initiate hostile RP by saying â€œIâ€™m going to kill youâ€ There must be some sort of warning/guideline in the Scenario/Storyline beforehand. Ex1. â€œIf you keep following me youâ€™re going to get hurt.â€ Ex2. *aims gun*â€œPut your hands upâ€ (With these demands you must give them a reasonable amount of time to react). Killing someone should always have a valid RP reason, not my character is a killer so he kills people. One dimensional RP like that will not be permitted here.
Initiation must be verbal. Twitter or text message does not count as initiation.
We regulate hostage situations with the following guidelines. Hostages may be traded for: Safe Passage, No spike strips at all, request a getaway vehicle (will be the best option in the area), and weird RP requests ex. I want the officer to sing "Hello" by Adele. Officers must honor one of these requests per hostage. You will not be permitted to request anything outside of these (IE helicopter ect) and Officers must honor the request you choose.
1 Hostage can be Exchanged for:
-No Spike Strips
-Removing One Unit (Two Max May be removed)
2 Hostages can be Exchanged for:
-No Heli Support
-No Pursuit Vehicle
Requesting No Helicopter At Yacht Heists Will Not Be Honored.
Using friendly/paid hostages is poor RP. There is no threat to a hostage that is your friend, cops will not meet your hostage demand and this will be considered Fail RP. Find a real hostage for the scenario.
There is to be absolutely NO joyriding Police or EMS vehicles. Must have a viable reason to use a Police or EMS vehicle i.e.. it is the only getaway vehicle in the area. Also you are to ditch the Police or EMS vehicle as soon as possible.
Never thought this would be a rule but it is apparent through experience that it is needed. You may RP dismembering someone's body through torture, however that person may continue to RP how they want to after the scenario is concluded. For example if a person takes my arm off while torturing me I may continue to RP with both arms, AFTER the scenario has concluded.
No. RPing sexual with someone against their will (IC or OOC) is not allowed in any way, shape, or form. Even if it was okay with the both parties OOC it will result in a permanent Ban.
If you are caught exploiting for in game money and do not report it you're character will be wiped. Second offense you will be banned.
Hacking of ANY kind is grounds for immediate permanent ban with no chance of appeal. (This includes if a hacker gives you money/car/weapons and you fail to report it.)
Store and Bank Robberies
Initiation starts as soon as the silent alarm goes off. You are expected to have a plan which includes how to escape from the premises. Expecting to "wait it out" is not a plan of escape. ALL parties must be inside the bank or store to be considered part of the RP scenario. You can be outside as a lookout or get away driver but cannot initiate any sort of hostile action while outside.
Do not attempt to rob a store or bank when server restart has been announced.
Do not park vehicles to block doors or have vehicles inside buildings as plan of escape, this is unrealistic and will be deemed as fail RP.
You should have a good backstory for each of your characters, what makes them who they are and why they react certain ways. Creating a backstory to justify your style of or fail RP will not be tolerated. EX. 1: My character is a trained sniper with PTSD so he snipes people. EX 2. My character is a serial killer, so he kills people. Character development should be more deep than this. Not everyone needs to be a trained killer or gangster. Step out of your comfort zone and have fun with your character.
Groups larger than 4 cannot initiate or be involved in any hostile action. This includes robberies, and kidnappings. You are able to hang out in groups as large as you want but cannot initiate while in a group larger than 4. If you are in a larger group and a smaller group initiates with you, you are allowed to hold your ground as a group.
If a group of 5 or more want to initiate on a rival group of 5 or more certain criteria must be met.
-There must be a verbal threat of incoming war clearly made in a previous scenario. in person. I.E.(We're going to come back with my boys and bring you hell)
-Valid RP reason (NO gang war will be had over twitter beefs or silly reasons)
-All normal rules of initiation must apply. Normal Rules of initiation include all people involved must be known and included in the initiation. If they are late to the party they are out of the scenario. (No sniper RP at all will be tolerated)
-Revenge from a previous Gang War is not a valid RP reason for a gang war. If you lose the Gang War you may not initiate over the same RP reason. You lost the battle.
Should you have a valid RP reason to be flying a helicopter/Plane. You must take into consideration realistic flight restrictions. If you attempt to land a plane/helicopter within city limits (or town) anywhere other than an authorized airfield or helipad this would be unrealistic. Flying low over the city/buildings will also be considered unrealistic.
Robbing cops is allowed, if the original intention was to rob them and they are downed because of it then you are allowed to loot them when they are downed. If you were not trying to rob them, for example if it was a chase or shootout you are not allowed to rob them.
All Hospitals and The Prison Parking lot will be considered greenzones for any hostile RP that did start outside of those areas.
