Server Rules

May 28th, 2012, 1:59 pm


ITALY MAFIA ROLEPLAY
Official Italy Mafia Ruleset

[fsize=x-large]Attention: Player reports being dealt with on the forum will receive double punishments.[/fsize]


[fsize=x-large]1) Do not deathmatch[/fsize]
Deathmatching is killing another player without a valid In Character reason. It is strictly prohibited on this server. Minor insults or OOC arguments for example are not accepted reasons to kill and will be considered deathmatching. It is expected of all players to use killing as a last resort when there is no other solution. Therefore killing will be considered deathmatching even if you can not justify why you killed a player. Claiming a player rammed you or hit you once or twice does not justify killing them.

Example: You and another player crash into each other. You then exit your vehicle and instantly starts firing shots at his vehicle because he's leaving the scene.
This is considered deathmatching and is punishable.

Example: You are being insulted by a random player, and you're getting fed up by it. You then pull out your gun and start shooting at him.
A gunfight emerges and you kill the player who insulted you because you couldn't ignore his insults any further.
This is considered deathmatching and is punishable. It doesn't matter if it's OOC or IC insults, simply getting insulted doesn't justify killing someone.

Example: You're standing outside your faction HQ, main bank or anywhere public with your friend. You are both getting bored so you start dueling.
This is deathmatching, however since you agreed to a duel, it is not. However, if you two start shooting at other people around you, who did not agree to a duel you are deathmatching them and you may be punished harshly.
Generally, do not 'duel' in locations where people who are not involved risk coming by and getting involved. If cops shoot at you for dueling, the cops are NOT deathmatching you as it is their JOB to stop murderers and end situations such as public duels.
If you want to OOC duel and not want to involve cops, request OOC mode from admins.


Law Enforcement
The rules of deathmatching are especially strict when it comes to LEO (Law Enforcement Officers). e.g. if a police unit turns their sirens on and orders you to pull over, you can't just gun them down without knowing what they're pulling you over for. If you're armed and they tell you they're going to frisk you and you don't want to get caught, then you're obviously allowed to do something about it, but if they're going to issue you with a ticket you are NOT allowed to kill them.

It should be noted that Spawn Killing is also considered DM. Killing newbies, e.g. low leveled players that continuously punch you, is not allowed either unless they're close to killing you. In that case, you are expected to call a helper or admin via /irc or /report.

Trespassers
Players are generally allowed to kill trespassers on their property but only after giving them sufficient time and warning (default 3 warnings) to leave. You cannot kill someone after telling them to leave once. Also, you cannot carry this out on public property such as outside a business that you or your friends own.

If a mapped sign saying 'TRESPASSERS WILL BE SHOT' is placed, players are permitted to shoot after a single warning, or fire warning shots as the sign is visible at all times and it is players' responsibility to beware of their surroundings. The sign can only be used by law enforcement agencies and on faction owned locations. If it is placed at a house or business it is NOT in effect.


Players with Moneybags
You are under no circumstances allowed to kill a player with a money bag unless you are directly involved in the robbery where the bag was stolen from.
This means that only the ones being robbed, the robbers and law enforcement are allowed to shoot players with a money bag. Cops are required to attempt to tase instead.

Killing players with a money bag without being involved is considered deathmatching and is punishable.

These examples are only a handful of situations that are common. They are only provided to help you better understand this rule. Just because a certain situation isn't listed here as an example, doesn't mean it's not DM.
Punishments:
120-240 Minutes admin jail
or 24 hours to 1 year account ban
[fsize=x-large]2) Do not revenge-kill or return to place of death[/fsize]
Revenge-killing is exactly what it sounds like. It is when a player kills or tries to kill the player that has killed them during a previous conflict without any IC justification. This is not considered acceptable behavior under any circumstances, even if you're killing someone that deathmatched you. You need a proper reason to kill someone, you cannot kill a player only because you've been killed by him/her.

Returning to the place you died at before the situation has finished is not allowed.

Exceptions
Law Enforcement Officers are allowed to return when 10 minutes have passed, but only if there are still cops there who can /em.
If you are not a Law Enforcement Officer, this does not apply to you.

Mafia wars are different, see war rules for exceptions.
Punishments:
120-240 Minutes adminjail
or 12-72 hour account ban
[fsize=x-large]3) Do not powergame[/fsize]
Power-gaming means to roleplay in a way that is highly unrealistic or unfair in any given situation. For example, when you do roleplay impossible feats such as lifting a car or resisting arrest against a group of officers that are restraining you it will be considered power-gaming.

Forcing roleplay on other players, i.e. not letting them respond to your actions, is also considered power-gaming. Players must at all times allow others to participate in roleplay.
Therefore any roleplay with an AFK player will be considered power-gaming under most circumstances, e.g. when you try to rob or kidnap an AFK player. (If someone goes AFK during RP, it is not powergaming to force actions on them!)

Police Specific
It is also considered powergaming to force players into a vehicle in high-speed, such as cops using /get while driving past a cuffed suspect with 100km/h.
Cops must park next to the suspect in order to use /get. There is no requirement that the driver must be outside of his vehicle, but there must be a someone outside of the car who force the suspect inside.
It is permitted to exit your vehicle as the driver and roleplay opening the doors and then forcing the suspect inside after roleplaying.

Simply /get'ing someone running away on foot is not allowed. You must /letgo the suspect so they can not run away in order to /get them.

Cops are allowed to tase players on bikes and cars with no roof/windows such as NRGs, Dinghys, and Banditos.
Punishments:
120-240 Minutes admin jail
Or a warning
[fsize=x-large]4) Do not metagame[/fsize]
Meta-gaming is mixing and using Out of Character information for In Character purposes. It is strictly prohibited and can be punished severely depending on the situation. An example of meta-gaming would be to read the name tag a player you have never met and calling their character's name IC. This is a minor form of meta-gaming and easily forgivable, but there will be harsh punishments in case of mixing and meta-gaming through PM. e.g. If someone asks you to come help him get away from the cops, via PM, and you go help him out - that's is meta-gaming from both sides and both parties will be punished.

Using third-party applications such as Teamspeak, Steam, Discord, Skype or other such platforms to call for assistance or guide your friends is also considered metagaming/mixing. You may not use any third-party software to communicate in-character without consent from the management team. GOV, SAPD, SASF, NOOSE and subsidiary departments of the aforementioned agencies may use Teamspeak or Discord as their radio communication platform.

Mafias are only allowed to utilize third-party applications to communicate during mafia wars - if caught using third-party applications when not in war, the players will be punished accordingly.
Punishments:
120-240 Minutes admin jail
Or a warning

Note that depending on the use of the application it MAY be considered mixing as well, thus you will receive harsher punishment!
[fsize=x-large]5) Do not spawn-kill[/fsize]
Spawn-killing is when a player kills a player that has just spawned. This is not very sporting and is thus prohibited in most circumstances. This rule does not protect players from IC interaction, however, and thus they cannot refuse to roleplay in when disadvantaged, i.e. if a cop or rival faction members approaches. You're not allowed to rob/kidnap a player at his spawn place (or outside it) after he has just spawned. Doing so will result in a punishment.

It is generally accepted that this rule is void when a player crashes during a shootout. See War Rules for mafia war spawn-kill rules.
Punishments:
120-240 Minutes adminjail
[fsize=x-large]6) Do not insult other players' heritage/religion/sexual preference/political views[/fsize]
Insulting other members' family members, sexual preference or religious beliefs are strictly forbidden.
Any insults on family members, sexual preference or religious beliefs will be dealt with, with no regards to previous events.
We understand that players may enter a heated discussion where insults may be used and as a result, we do not deal with reports revolving around a heated argument where one may be called retarded, an idiot, son of a bitch or the like.
However insulting someone for being bi-/homosexual or a Muslim will never be acceptable. Nor should one be insulted for having different political views.

This does not mean you have permission to insult each and every player on the server/forum. If you are caught constantly starting arguments, being rude/offensive or if you are found insulting players for the sake of insulting, you may be punished.
You are NOT green-lighted to be a douchebag or nuisance!


However please note that disrespectful attitude to or any sort of insults made against the administration while they are performing their duties as an admin/moderator/helper will be dealt with harshly.
Punishments:
Punishments vary from situation to situation.
The admin wages what is reasonable.
[fsize=x-large]7) Do not use forbidden modifications or third-party software[/fsize]
Using any forbidden modifications or third-party software to give you an unfair advantage over other players is not allowed under any circumstances.
If you have questions about e.g. CLEO mods or textures, speak to an admin to avoid any misunderstandings.

If our anti-cheat (Launcher) detects cheats in your GTA folder, you are declared guilty and will be banned for at least a year. All excuses will be invalid.
It's your responsibility to make sure your GTA folder is clean before logging in.

If your anti-cheat client detects illegal modifications and you are 100% sure you did not use mods, send a PM to a management member and explain what mod was detected and what it does, perhaps include the file in your message as well and we will contact woot or discuss internally whether the modification should be considered illegal or not. The anti-cheat launcher is strict, and some modifications may be blacklisted unintentionally.

Examples of forbidden mods: CLEO cheats, cam hacks, auto aim, sobeit, oversized/flashy weapon textures.
Allowed CLEO mods:
- ELM(emergency light mod) - Only allowed for law enforcement and government employees in charge of roadwork or parking enforcement.
- 1st person mod
- HP/armour digital mod(displays YOUR OWN HP & armour in digits)
Punishments:
1 year IP ban
Or Permanent IP ban

[fsize=x-large]8) Do not advertise for other servers[/fsize]
Advertising other SA:MP servers in-game or on Italy Mafia forums is strictly prohibited and will result in an immediate one month IP ban. Repeat offenders will not be welcomed back and will be permanently banned from this community forever.

If you are unsure in what ways you can discuss other servers contact a member of staff to clear things up.
Punishments:
1 Month IP ban
or 1 year IP ban
[fsize=x-large]9) Do not encourage rule breaking[/fsize]
Encouraging other players to break server rules is not allowed under any circumstances. All players must follow the rules at all time. Any player that encourages other players to break the rules may be banned or receive twice the punishment of the rule broken. For example, if a player convinces another to non-RPly enter a vehicle while cuffed, both players will be jailed and the player guilty of breaking rule 9 nine will do twice the time in admin jail or have will be suspended twice as long.
Punishments:
Other player's punishment x2
or temporary IP ban
[fsize=x-large]10) Using a vehicle as a weapon[/fsize]
Driver drive-by (DDB) is parking a vehicle on top of another player in order to murder him or make him lose health/armor.

You are allowed to ram another person ONCE. However, ramming a person continuously in short amount of time is NOT allowed and will be considered as DDB.
Law enforcement officers may ram other players several times to stop them from running away/to allow their colleagues to tase them. However, it is not permitted to continuously ram them while you're alone and waiting for people to arrive. Then you must attempt to tase them yourself or continue chasing.

You may not use helicopter rotors to kill people, nor may you crash directly into other players in order to trigger and explosion and thus killing players.
Terrorism is not allowed without consent and this falls in that category.

If you wish to blow up players you must attain a car bomb.

Exception
You are permitted to ram players off roofs by using an airplane or helicopter, however.

If you wish to stop another player's vehicle, you are allowed to ram them in order to disable their vehicle.
Punishments:
Varies from situation to situation - repeated offenders or common rule breakers may be banned.
Otherwise 120-180 minutes admin jail.
[fsize=x-large]11) Do not provoke[/fsize]
Provoking other players to either break rules, deathmatch, bug abuse, glitch, or chase you is considered 'provoking'. This includes insulting cops and players into gunfights and chases.
Following a player with holding down the horn and insulting them is considered provoking, just as hitting another player to make him shoot you is considered provoking (/encouraging rule break).

/pissing on players with no valid reason (read: not having them tied and kidnapped or engaging in explicit roleplay) is also considered provoking. Running up to someone and /pissing on them is provoking.

Abusing animations to provoke, e.g. dancing, will be punished as well under the circumstances of rule #23.
Punishments:
90-240 Minutes admin jail
Or a warning
[fsize=x-large]12) Robbing/Kidnapping & Scamming[/fsize]
Players are allowed to rob other players from their cash, drugs, and weapon materials. You may only rob the items that the player has with/on them! This means you may NOT force players to withdraw from their banks or houses.

Killing a player during/after the robbery is not allowed unless they give you a valid reason.
A valid reason could be the robbed player threatening you with reporting you to the cops, to kill you and liking. If they is simply complying and doing nothing you can not kill them.


The following amounts below are the maximum robbing limits per victim.
  • $200,000 cash
  • 2,000 weapon crafting materials
  • 50 grams of drugs total (any type)
  • If a house locker is found open, you may steal all of its' contents.
The following set of locations below forbid roleplay robbery and kidnap. If a location is not listed below, it is not considered a forbidden zone.
(Being nearby or close to the location will not protect you!)
  • Mall
  • Car Lots
  • Pershing Square
  • Casinos
  • Church
  • Clubs (interior)
  • DMV
  • Gunshops
  • Banks
  • Airport Terminals (Runways/Hangars are okay!)
  • Hospitals
  • Tolls
  • Legal job locations (Truck depot, mechanic depot, taxi depot etc.)
Robbing players below level 4 is not allowed and will result in an immediate account suspension.

-

Scamming
Players are not allowed to scam under any circumstances. This includes, but is not limited to scamming properties, vehicles, drugs, cash, and weapon crafting materials. Note that we won't refund IC / OOC loans, however, the person who scams will receive a suspension and scammed money/materials/drugs will be removed from his account. We advise everyone not to loan money/materials/drugs to players you can't trust.


If you are playing at the casino with other players, you must follow the official Blackjack and Roulette rules.

The entire scamming rule is also bound to OOC deals.
If you are unsure about anything regarding this rule, please contact an administrator.
Punishments:
Temporary to permanent account suspension + removal of all items/cash involved.
or 1 year IP ban + removal of all items/cash involved.
[fsize=x-large]13) Do not abuse/mis-use /ad[/fsize]
The /ad command is there for players to advertise their business or sell/buy different items. It may also be used to announce that a company is currently looking for staff.
If you are looking for employment you may also use /ad to advertise for your skills, however, such advertisements may not be directed at one company(faction) specifically.
Players may only use /ad strictly for these purposes. It is NOT allowed to provoke other players via advertisement, this goes for both IC and OOC provocation.

In addition, you may not use internet slang/abbreviations such as 'lol', 'rofl', 'pls' and so forth.
Advertisements are not a chat system, but a way of selling or purchasing goods and items in-game.
The only abbreviations allowed on in-game advertisements are common company abbreviations.

Terms such as 'B Car' is not allowed, unless part of a more complex advertisement such as 'B Car - must have 4 doors, decent speed, and custom rims'.
You are meant to be creative and not lazy when using the advertisement system.

The advertisement system can also be abused/misused if a player sends an advertisement in the way of 'all come PB' or 'who wants to have fun'.
You need to properly advertise the paintball arena or that you're looking for fun, e.g. advertising for a club or bar where you are hanging out.

Players are not allowed to openly advertise contraband like guns and drugs. It is permitted however to hide a message in an advertisement if done in a creative and clever way, e.g. "Looking for/Selling Good Unused Nike Shoes", or "Looking for/Selling Guns 'n Roses albums".

Using the advertisement system to sell/purchase/trade out of character items, despite using in character codenames will be punished harshly and considered mixing/ad abuse. A suspension may be in place for breaking this rule.
This includes name and number changes, premium memberships and other services offered to players via real life currency.

TL;DR Use common sense and be creative when creating an advertisement.
Remember that advertisements are broadcasted to the entire server, and making a ridiculous advertisement doesn't make you cool, but make you look unintelligent or annoying.
Punishments:
1 Warning
or 30-120 Minutes admin jail
or Kick
[fsize=x-large]14) Do not spam[/fsize]
Three lines or more with the same message in any chat is considered spam and is not allowed as it disrupts roleplay. Flooding chats will be punished more severely depending on the situation and the message, e.g. spamming during a mayoral speech could possibly even result in an account suspension.
Punishments:
Varies from situation to situation, common punishments are warnings or short jailtime.
[fsize=x-large]15) Do not mix OOC and IC chat[/fsize]
OOC chat must be done between brackets (using ( to start your sentence). OOC chat taking in IC will not be tolerated. This applies to all IC chats, e.g. chatting about IC related things, such as selling/buying vehicles/business' or recruiting via /pm. Using abbreviations such as "LOL", "OMG", "WTF" or smilies such as ":D", ":(" will result in a warning.

This rule also applies to doing something OOC for an IC advantage, such as leaving one faction to join another faction for a turf take over or robbery. Doing this will result in harsh punishment.
Punishments:
Varies from situation to situation, common punishments are warnings and short jailtime.
[fsize=x-large]16) Do not suicide, quit or force timeout, pause or tow your vehicles to avoid death/arrest/roleplay/impound[/fsize]
Quitting or /Kill'ing
It is not acceptable under any circumstances to use /kill or /q to avoid roleplay (this includes arrests) or death. Forcing a timeout is considered abuse and may be a bannable offense.
In addition, once you are killed you may not use any method whatsoever to avoid the kill list. This is also abuse and will not be tolerated.

Pausing
If you pause your game either by pressing escape or tabbing out of the game to avoid roleplay or interactions by other players, including being shot, you may also be punished.
Players who are interacting with you in paused state are not limited by the powergaming rule and may force actions on you as they please until you return to the game.

They are however still forced to abide by the DM and rob/scam rule.

Towing
You are under no circumstances allowed to tow your vehicle while you are being pulled over, in a gunfight or while police or rivals are towing it with a truck.
This is considered powergaming and non-roleplay and may be punished with 120 minutes of jail time. Depending on your history it may also lead to a suspension.

If you are uncertain whether someone is towing your vehicle, use /car find and take note whether it's moving.
Towing your vehicle(s) after a gunfight, pull over or arrest is OK as long rivals or cops are not interacting with it.

Law enforcement officers are encouraged to /pm or otherwise notify the owner of a car that they are interacting with the vehicle after previously mentioned situations, but it is not a must.

If a faction vehicle is /fcar towed it is also considered a violation and the one using the command may be punished. However before reporting this beware that factions obviously have several cars and a tow may have been done for other cars and not the one specifically, so you need strong proof.
Punishments:
120-240 Minutes admin jail + removal of drugs & sellable weapons
or 24 hours to 1 year account ban + removal of drugs & sellable weapons
[fsize=x-large]17) Do not share or mix accounts.[/fsize]
Once created, an account will always belong to the player that created it. Sharing accounts with friends or family members is forbidden. Management has a zero tolerance policy on selling or giving away accounts. Doing this could result in the account being permanently banned and the offended players may be IP banned for a specific amount of time.

If you share your password with other users, and their manage to break a rule/give away your goods or in any other way harm your account or belongings you will be responsible for the actions and will not receive a refund.

Account mixing also includes using an alternative account to sell/buy/provide services for your main account or vice versa.
For example, you can not use a police account to unjail your other account (or other friends' accounts) from prison or provide a weapons license for cheap.
Nor can you use an account in Stracci to steal materials or goods from Stracci's warehouse and then give it to your main account which is in Kemirov. Same goes for IC information provided to your character on one account and sharing it with the other.
Punishments:
1-4 weeks account/IP ban
or Permanent account ban
(if items have been transferred) + removal of transferred items with no refunds.
[fsize=x-large]18) Do not speak foreign languages in public chats.[/fsize]
Italy Mafia Roleplay is an English speaking server. While everyone is welcome to join the community, all players are expected to speak English in public chats. Other languages may be spoken in private domains, e.g. a house or another interior (so long as it is in OOC chat) or through the use of use of PMs or group chat.
Punishments:
1 Warning
or Kick

[fsize=x-large]19) Do not roleplay rape without permission from all parties[/fsize]
A player may not roleplay a rape without OOC agreement of all parties. Violating this rule will not be tolerated under any circumstances.
Punishments:
80 Minutes admin jail
or 24 hours account ban
[fsize=x-large]20) Do not heal/re-armor/repair in fights.[/fsize]
Healing
Players are not allowed to heal in fights through any means other than the use of drugs. A player may heal only when it is clear they have escaped their enemy. However, if you do choose to heal, you may not return to the original gunfight. This offense is easily traceable through logs.

If you escape from a fight you are allowed to heal under the following circumstances:
- You have not been shot at/followed for 1 minute.
- You have killed your enemies.
- You are being treated by an EMS member.
- You are not hiding inside a house where law enforcement is waiting outside. (even if it is for longer than 10 minutes!)

First Aid Kits are not allowed as in-fight measures of gaining health at any time. That may only be used in an RP manner if one of the above-listed conditions are met.
This also counts for restaurants, houses, vending machines, Sprunk machines and other means of gaining HP/armor.

Once you have healed you are under no circumstances allowed to return to the gunfight unless you are in a law enforcement agency. (return after 10 minutes).

Repairing
It is allowed to escape from a fight in order to repair your vehicle.
However you must use a pay 'n spray or mechanic far from the gunfight, and you are under no circumstances allowed to repair during a chase or gunfight.

You must not be followed or be within sight of the gunfight in order to legally repair your vehicle.

Example: a gunfight at main bank occurs, you want to repair. You must then go to the PNS at the beach or Idlewood. Using Temple PNS is too close.
This is mainly aimed at Hunters/Sparrows/Tanks but illegals may repair as well so forth the above requirements are met.
Punishments:
120 Minutes admin jail
Or a temporary suspension
[fsize=x-large]21) Do not avoid the AFK script[/fsize]
Avoiding the AFK script (when you're AFK, you are automatically set to AFK by the server & you cannot get paytimes) by e.g. putting an item on your keyboard for your character to move, or using any kind of bot is not allowed under any circumstances and will be punished severely.
Punishments:
1-week account ban
[fsize=x-large]22) Do not kill inside government buildings without a proper reason[/fsize]
If you do not have a valid reason to kill someone inside the police department (this rule also applies to the area around it, e.g. the police garage, etc.), you will be punished. If you are able to kill your target outside the PD, do so instead. You are advised to ask an admin before killing inside the PD.
This also counts for the special forces base at Ocean Docks, the City Hall, FBI headquarters and All Saints General Hospital at Market (EMS HQ).

It must also be noted that players that abuse this rule by retreating to a government building during a gunfight will not be granted the protection this rule provides. Abusers of this rule may also be punished depending on the situation.
Punishments:
Same as DM.
[fsize=x-large]23) Do not abuse animations, bugs or other malfunctions[/fsize]
Abusing script/GTA SA bugs is strictly forbidden. Script bugs should be reported in the right section on the forum. Money bugs should be forum PMed to woot. Sharing any knowledge regarding exploitable bugs will result in the same punishment. If you are unsure whether you might violating this rule contact an admin.

Animations
In addition, you are not allowed to use /fall or other animations to hide inside walls so that you can not be found in e.g. a gunfight or turf takeover.
Using /dance or other animations to provoke players should also be avoided and is considered abuse in most circumstances.
Punishments:
7 days - 1 year IP ban

Abusing animations will result in 120-240 minute jail time or a 24-hour suspension. Repeated offenders may be IP banned.
[fsize=x-large]24) Do not sell items for real money & do not sell real things with IG money[/fsize]
IM management has a strict policy against selling in-game items for real money and vice versa. Clearly put, houses, vehicles, and in-game money can not be transferred between players for non-in-game items.
Punishments:
Permanent account ban
or Permanent IP ban
[fsize=x-large]25) Do not abuse OOC chats[/fsize]
OOC chat during a roleplay situation without a proper reason is not allowed. Regardless of any rules broken, players must stay IC at all times. If there is a genuine believe a rule has been broken players must report it after the roleplay situation has concluded and NOT during. e.g. if you believe an LEO abuses their commands during roleplay, you must stay in character and forum report the LEO after all has been said and done.
Punishments:
1 Warning
or what the admin feel is suitable.
[fsize=x-large]26) Do not abuse enter/exit[/fsize]
Abusing /enter and /exit at a business or a house to avoid getting arrested/killed is against the rules and will not be tolerated. This, however, does not mean that you are not allowed to hide in your house or faction HQ, though abusing this at, e.g. the paintball business isn't allowed nor is abusing /enter and /exit at a business during a robbery to avoid being caught.
Punishments:
120-240 minutes admin jail
or 1 Warning
or Verbal warning
[fsize=x-large]27) Refusing to RP/non-RP[/fsize]
All players are required to roleplay at all times and are expected to roleplay within the boundaries of the ruleset. This means players may not refuse to RP or behave in a non-RP manner under any circumstances. Failure to respond to /do's and /me's are taken as you refusing to roleplay.

To avoid non-RP behavior players are encouraged to RP similarly to how they would behave in real life.
A common example of non-RP behavior would be driving on the wrong side of the road for no justifiable In Character reason (fleeing the cops, for example, would be a good reason to do this, but doing this out of boredom is not!)

Another example of non-roleplay behavior/refusing to roleplay would be ignoring another player's /me and /do commands deliberately in the same situation. Running away from a person who is arresting/mugging you while they're either attempting to/currently beating you up will be non-roleplay/refusing to roleplay. You must respond to /me and /do commands.

If someone is roleplaying with your corpse or injured body, you must let them and answer their /do or /me commands.
You are, however, allowed to roleplaying dying if you are just injured. But let the person who did it/is roleplaying with you finish what they're doing.

If you are roleplaying being dead, you are dead. Do not suddenly be alive if a friend comes around to save you. You may get revived by an EMS or someone who does CPR on you, though. (if you haven't been shot in the face - be reasonable)

Robbing another player in highly populated areas is also considered non-roleplay as you would never pull out a gun and mug a stranger right outside of a central bank or police station in real life. You must either lure your victim into an alley or put a gun to his back, secretly hidden under your shirt while telling him where to go.
Punishments for players who are level 10 and above:
If an admin decides you know too little about RP(including OOC & IC, etc), you will be forced to learn the basics. A helper will help you out.
If you deliberately refuse to roleplay or deliberately form Non-RP actions an admin may punish you however he believe is suitable.
Punishments for players who are under level 10(unless the player owns another account that is 10+):
If an admin decides you know too little about RP(including OOC & IC, etc), you will be forced or advised to learn the basics. A helper will help you out if you wish.
or ajail 15-90
or Kick
or Verbal warning
[fsize=x-large]28) Gambling[/fsize]
Players are not allowed to gamble for anything worth more than $10.000.000 at once under any circumstances. See the gambling section for information.
Punishments for all participants of the gamble:
All of the money/item gambled will be permanently erased from the server without anyone getting any refunds.
All players which participated in the gamble worth over $10m will get a warning & 120 minutes of jail time each.

[fsize=x-large]29) OOC extortion/lying[/fsize]
Players are not allowed, under any circumstances, to use OOC threats against another player to receive something. e.g. it is NOT allowed to demand a player to gives you money under the threat of being reported for a rule they have broken if they don't.

It is furthermore against the rules to lie to other players when reporting them or being questioned of in character against prior to a report.
If a player is asking you why you've done X or Y to them because they are in doubt, you must answer truthfully. Lying to get someone punished/to not be punished as result of a report is strictly against the rules.
Punishments for all participants of the gamble:
All of the money/items extorted will be removed from the extortioner and refunded.
The extortioner will receive a minimum (IP) suspension of 7 days.
[fsize=x-large]30) Ban Evading[/fsize]
It is under no circumstances allowed to evade an IP ban.
If you are caught evading your ban, you will be permanently banned without the possibility to appeal.

If you are account suspended you are, however, allowed to play on an alternative account.
Punishments for evading:
Permanent suspension of accounts and/or IP bans.
[fsize=x-large]31) Accessories and other player customizations/features[/fsize]
It is under no circumstances allowed to attach unrealistic accessories to your character in the clothes shops.
This includes oversized phones, helmets, hats or anything else that would be unrealistic and unsuitable.
The intentions of the system is to customize the character skin so that it suits your player, not to make jokes and troll.
You are not allowed to attach lasers to eyes, attach excessive amounts of lasers (read: only 1) to your character.

If you would like to attach an oversized hat, or another object to use it as a costume, please seek permission from senior staff before doing so. The entire admin team needs to be informed before you can go ahead to avoid misunderstandings.
You must also have a very good reason to do so, as it is a privilege that can be abused.

Accents can not be set to unrealistic or nonexistent accents either, i.e. 'black' or 'nigger' accents.
Those are not only racist but also made up. Google if you are unsure what accent you are thinking of.

This also includes any and all present or future features that allow you to change the looks or appearance of your character.
Punishments:
A warning or 3 days account suspension depending on violation and severity.
This entire ruleset has been written by and for Italy Mafia Roleplay - copyright 2012-2017.

RULE 13 HAS BEEN REVISED
[fsize=x-large]13) Do not abuse/mis-use /ad[/fsize]
The /ad command is there for players to advertise their business or sell/buy different items. It may also be used to announce that a company is currently looking for staff.
If you are looking for employment you may also use /ad to advertise for your skills, however such advertisements may not be directed at one company(faction) specificly.
Players may only use /ad strictly for these purposes. It is NOT allowed to provoke other players via advertisement, this goes for both IC and OOC provocation.

In addition, you may not use internet slang/abbrevations such as 'lol', 'rofl', 'pls' and so forth.
Advertisements are not a chat system, but a way of selling or purchasing goods and items in-game.
The only abbrevations allowed on in-game advertisements are common company abbrevations.

Terms such as 'B Car' is not allowed, unless part of a more complex advertisement such as 'B Car - must have 4 doors, decent speed and custom rims'.
You are meant to be creative and not lazy when using the advertisement system.

The advertisement system can also be abused/mis-used if a player sends an advertisement in the way of 'all come pb' or 'who wants to have fun'.
You need to properly advertise the paintball arena or that you're looking for fun, e.g. advertising for a club or bar where you are hanging out.

Players are not allowed to openly advertise contraband like guns and drugs. It is permitted however to hide a message in advertisement if done in a creative and clever way, e.g. "Looking for/Selling Good Unused Nike Shoes", or "Looking for/Selling Guns 'n Roses albums".

TL;DR Use common sense and be creative when creating an advertisement.
Remember that advertisements are broadcasted to the entire server, and making a ridiculous advertisement doesn't make you cool, but make you look unintelligent or annoying.
Punishments:
1 Warning
or 30-120 Minutes adminjail
or Kick

*** DO NOT CREATE A THREAD DISCUSSING THIS CHANGE, AS THERE IS NO REASON TO DO SO.
IT IS SIMPLY A CHANGE DESCRIBING THE RULES FURTHER, TO ADD MORE CLARITY TO WHAT HAS BEEN MEANT IN YEARS.

DO NOT CREATE A THREAD TO DISCUSS THIS CHANGE




[fsize=x-large]6) Do not insult other players' heritage/religion/sexual preference/political views[/fsize]
Insulting other members' family members, sexual preference or religious beliefs are strictly forbidden.
Any insults on family members, sexual preference or religious beliefs will be dealt with, with no regards to previous events.
We understand that players may enter a heated discussion where insults may be used and as a result we do not deal with reports revolving around a heated argument where one may be called retarded, an idiot, son of a bitch or the like.
However insulting someone for being bi-/homosexual or a Muslim will never be acceptable. Nor should one be insulted for having different political views.

This does not mean you have permission to insult each and every player on the server/forum. If you are caught constantly starting arguments, being rude/offensive or if you are found insulting players for the sake of insulting, you may be punished.
You are NOT green-lighted to be a douchebag or nuisance!


However please note that disrespectful attitude to or any sort of insults made against the administration while they are performing their duties as an admin/moderator/helper will be dealt with harshly.
Punishments:
Punishments vary from situation to situation.
The admin wages what is reasonable.

Updated last paragraph of #4 to include Discord and other platforms as examples.
Using third-party applications such as Teamspeak, Steam, Discord, Skype or other such platforms to call for assistance or guide your friends is also considered metagaming/mixing. You may not use any third-party software to communicate in-character without consent from the management team. GOV, SAPD, SASF, NOOSE and subsidiary departments of the aforementioned agencies may use Teamspeak or Discord as their radio communication platform.

Added a missing location to rule 12.
  • Legal job locations (Truck depot, mechanic depot, taxi depot etc.)
If you got robbed at a legal job location prior to today, you can not report it as it was not on the list.
Anyone robbing a player at a legal job location from today may be punished.
