1. Common Courtesy
4. Abuse of SA-MP Physics
5. Third Party Modifications
Third party modifications that give you an unfair advantage over other players are not allowed. Think before you install programs or mods, because if we find out that you are using something you should not, you will be banned permanently. If you think or know someone is cheating, it is your obligation to report them.
Punishments: Permanent ban. Cheating is that serious.
Keybinds that script influential role-play / responses, give you any sort of advantage over other players or act as macros to shorten server commands are forbidden. Frequently used emotes (not server commands) that do not drastically impact a scene - e.g. describing your character's appearance, performing a repetitive action such as keying a radio or brandishing a small weapon (where no role-play is technically needed) and anything else along those lines may be bound to a key. In short, they may only be used to enhance role-play. It is your responsibility to ensure that your binds are in line with this rule. Police megaphone usage and /siren binds (only when unable to type) are allowed.
Cam hack may only be used with admin approval and supervision.
Modifications that change the shape (height, width, etc) of GTA:SA's original skins and objects are forbidden.
With regards to revenge killing: if you are saved by the medics (FD) after being brutally wounded then you are allowed to continue the roleplay with your memory intact.
If you have been killed and you do not know why, you may ask your killer for a clarification. If you are the killer and you are being asked that same question, you are required to provide your victim with an answer.
Only /invited members of official factions can do contract kills. This is to stop random civilians from advertising themselves as hitmen in order to randomly murder others for payment. Temporary exceptions to this sub-rule can be decided on by the Head of Factions.
8. Disgusting Roleplay
If the criminal roleplay leads to the area then you are allowed to continue.
For example: You are trying to kill a player and he runs into the mall from another location - you can follow and kill him if it is urgent. This should not be abused, as these locations (like PD/SD, City Hall) are dangerous. If the role-play can wait until a safer location, then it should.
9. Robbing & Scamming
Unless prior OOC permission is given by all parties involved, the following is strictly forbidden on this server:
- Sexual harassment (any type of sexual roleplay, including touching someone inappropriately)
If prior OOC permission is given by all parties involved, the roleplay must happen away from anybody else, where it will not potentially be interrupted. Subjecting others to see disgusting roleplay falls under this rule.
Punishments: Temporary or permanent ban depending on severity.
If you begin to feel uncomfortable during disgusting roleplay, even after giving permission, you're allowed to stop it immediately by informing all other players involved.
Robbing is defined as taking someone's possessions (like money) by force or threat of force. Scamming is defined as hiring another person for a service (like prostitution), or agreeing to buy/sell a certain good (like a gun/drug) and then refusing to pay/give it. Robberies and scams must be done strictly In Character.
All characters involved in robberies and scams must be level 5 or higher. You can rob a maximum of $500. You can scam a maximum of $50,000. There is no limit to how many weapons, drugs and cargo you can rob. You are not allowed to kill a player while or after robbing/scamming them unless they bring it upon themselves by showing attitude or non-compliance. If you have been robbed or scammed, you are allowed to rob back the things you have lost. You may not knowingly rob the same people more than once in a 2-hour period. House, business and vehicle scams are forbidden.
You may not steal properties or abuse /furniture as a furniture designer. If someone has given you a property to allow freedom to /furniture design the house, you may not simply steal the property or use this to scam people.
Legal casinos or betting shops may not scam players. This includes raffles. The maximum bet you can place in a legal betting business is $1,000,000 and all interactions must be role-played properly.
Loaning and ILLEGAL gambling is done at your own risk and is not protected by the level requirements, money limits and scam restrictions described in this rule. Admins will not help you if you lend money to other people and they do not return it, or if your money gets stolen while you are gambling. If a person runs off with your money or gets banned, then the things with that person are gone. Only give your stuff to people you trust and only gamble if you are willing to accept a potential loss.
Punishments: Anything from an admin-jail to a temporary ban depending on severity.
10. Court Rules
In order to keep a good balance between fun and confusion, bank robberies
require admin approval and supervision. You can ask for such a permission through /re. The rules for robbing a bank are as follows:
- There must be at least 30 PD and/or SD members online and on duty.
- You need to inform the admin of everything you have planned out before actually starting the heist.
- As soon as you brandish your gun in a bank, silent alarms go off and law enforcement is informed.
- There is no roof access to any bank inside of Los Santos.
11. Prison Rules
You may not namechange or Character Kill (CK) yourself when:
- You have scammed someone in the last 6 days.
- You have robbed someone in the last 48 hours.
- There is a court case in progress involving you.
- The court has ordered you to do something and you still have not done it.
The evasion of In Character repercussions using any other Out Of Character methods is also forbidden. You are not allowed to transfer, sell or give away money and properties if there is a court case in progress involving you, or if the court has ordered you to do something and you still have not done it.
Punishments: Temporary ban depending on severity, along with the removal of all illegally acquired goods.
Exceptions to this rule can be decided on by the Head of Factions or the Lead Admin team whenever needed.
12. Destroying Property
1 on 1 fights between inmates require 2+ guards on duty. Attacking a guard or starting a brawl (3+ people) requires 4+ guards on duty. Breaking in and out of prison requires admin permission, as well as 6+ guards on duty. To check the amount of guards on duty, use the command /onduty.
Punishments: Anything from a verbal warning to a ban depending on severity.
The prison has a CCTV camera system that covers 100% of the facility, except cell interiors (who leaves/enters cells is recorded). There is a control room watching over the prison CCTVs, so if no guards are present in an obviously monitored location and a violent situation happens, /pm a DOC member on duty.
13. Legal Faction Rules
14. Business Rules
You are required to have In-Game Lead Admin (+4) approval and supervision to burn/destroy a house or business. You can ask for such a permission through /re, but make sure you have a sufficient IC reason behind your plans.
You cannot destroy a player's vehicle for no reason at all, and must have a reason or justification.
Punishments: Admin-jail or a temporary ban depending on severity.
The following rules apply specifically to businesses:

3. Realistic/sensible advertising
