Title: DarkRP rules suggestions?
Post by: Adolf Hipster on 11.06.2014 21:43:29
We are working on rules for the new DarkRP server.
The rules we have established right now are:

* No RDM
* Do not break NLR
* Only bankers can legally own money printers. (Keep in mind that the money printers has to be in the bank at all times)
* As a Civil Protection Officer/S.W.A.T you can not own a money printer
* Do not prop abuse ( Surf/Climb/Kill )
* Use common sense (Respect all players)
* Don't mic spam/chat spam
* Do not block roads/playerowned areas with props
* Admins word is law
* No random lockdown as a Mayor
* No random arrests as a Civil Protection Officer/S.W.A.T
* English only
* Do not advertise for other servers, this will result in a temp-ban
* Do not metagame
* Do not spam paint
* Do not use textscreens on a house that is not yours.
* Do not spam your camera flash
* You can not use your Battering ram without a warrant as a S.W.A.T
* Max mugging price is 700
* Give people a reasonable time to respond to the mug
* FearRP. If someone points a gun at your face (must use /me) you can't pull out a gun and kill them
* Max hostage release price is 3000
* Don't hold hostages for too long
* If you block of an area with a fading door (prop) you need to have a with a keypad that opens it for 1.5 seconds at least
* If you die during a raid you can not go back eventhough your NLR time has exceeded
* Do not job abuse.
             - Changing your job to medic to heal yourself, then changing back to your previous job[/i]

Not satisfied? Tell us what rules you would like to see on the server.

Found this on a website:

OOC chat, or out-of-character chat, is server-wide and does not affect RP. If someone killed you and you want to know why, you would use OOC to ask them. If someone says in OOC, "I have printers in this house," you can't go to that house. Your character cannot hear OOC, so they wouldn't know about the printer.

_
I know you might not have the space for the stuff on the motd but maybe just have a post about this on the forums.


One of the most important:

The New Life Rule comes into effect if you are killed. What NLR means is you forget everything that happened before you died. You're essentially starting off with a new life. You can't return to the area you died at for some period of time (it's different on every server, check the server's rules for the time period) and you can't kill the person who killed you. Now onto server-specific gamemode changes.

And the most important at the end:

Random deathmatch is the act of going up to a random person and killing them for no reason. This is illegal on most servers, and will almost certainly lead to administrative action. Killing a gangster after he held a gun to your face and threatened you would not be considered RDM, since you had a reason to defend yourself. A similar case would be if your house was raided. You have the right to defend your property. If you are being shot at, you have a reason to defend yourself. If you are killed, however, you cannot seek revenge killings. This leads into the next section of the guide.

We are planning to make a DarkRP section, where only DarkRP related stuff is posted. On there we will go more in depth about certain rules.

Do you have any idea how hard it will be to pretend you didn't just see the guy admit to having printers in that house?

It's dark RP (role play)
that means if someone says something in OOC (out of character) you can't know it and you have to act like this. And if people don't understand this they have to learn.

i think you can delete the first rule since it's in the 5 rule too.

rules that should be added is:

No randome lockdown by the Mayor

No randome arrests

I totally understand this, i'm just saying that it's not that easy to pretend you didn't just read what that person said.

We should really set some rules which are telling when you are allowed to kill another player and when not.

* You can not use your keypad crack/battering ram without a valid reason as a Civil Protection Officer/ S.W.A.T

I suppose the only valid reason is a police warrant on the door's owner. I can't come up with anything else.

Changed it to "without warrant"

* Only bankers can legally own money printers
I can't understand this. You can easily metagame like that by collecting the money and then switching to another job without noticing. Either you should remove that rule or you restart the cash you have when you switch jobs.

Easy to fix, bankers can only have money printers in the bank! Outside the bank it illegal! (Bank is across the street of the police station)

I don't understand what you mean, can you explain better?
We can't remove the rule as that would make the Banker job useless, and we can't reset everyones money when they switch jobs as there would be no money making progress in the server.

if you die during a raid you cant come back till its over, that would be breaking nlr.

Correct, however as "Dont break NLR" is already a rule, it speaks for itself you can't go back.
Title: Re: DarkRP rules suggestions?
Post by: Leronez on 15.06.2014 23:00:49
it doesnt say that you cant come back till the raid is over though, ppl tend to come back after 5 minutes if the raid is still incomplete.

Edit: also you shouldnt be able to press whatever key they've set to the fading door as soon it has been lockpicked, we can't raid if they do. and it's also considered failRP I think.
Title: Re: DarkRP rules suggestions?
Post by: Offline on 16.06.2014 00:33:48
we should write the NLR and set it to F2 or F3 or wahtever.
Since i don't know the whole NLR.
Title: Re: DarkRP rules suggestions?
Post by: SuperPlayer on 16.06.2014 12:56:26
Here's a suggestion: Don't make fading doors too close to normal doors. (raiders can't lock pick the normal door if the fading door is too close)

Just to clearify: You mean something like this? "If you die during a raid you can not go back eventhough your NLR time has exceeded"

Yes, sry I wasn't clear enough.

Allow bankers to get money from printers to gain back the money they spent on them before Raids.
(or just make them free for bankers.)

Don't put random hits on people

(it gets quite boring being a mayor and then getting killed for no reason at all, if they want to kill the mayor or get something done, or remove laws or something, the gangsters can do raids.)
