Rules & Regulations
THERE WILL BE NO EXCEPTIONS MADE TO THE RULES & REGULATIONS NO MATTER WHAT!
This document can change at any time:
The name InGame must respect the form "Firstname Lastname" and not include word games (such as Iam_Asian or Fist_F**ker). It is also forbidden to take the name of a known person (real and fictitious identity). Various checks will be made at the time of asking for a rename. If an error occurs during these checks, a random rename will be assigned to you. If you know that the name is forbidden do not ask for it.
Abuse of a bug is totally forbidden, if you discover a bug, it is your duty to report it in the appropriate Discord channel.
In the case of use of a bug (to benefit you or not), you will be severely sanctioned by a ban based on a case by case basis.
If you are a victim of an InGame bug, take a screenshot and contact a developer immediately via Discord.
RANDOM DEATHMATCH (RDM) / DEATHMATCH (DM)
The (R)DM is totally forbidden, it consists in killing someone for no particular reason / valid reason. Murder is a serious act, which must be used in case of extreme necessities. You must embody your character to the maximum, you will not act the same way if you are a policeman or a journalist. Killing represents an act that pursues you all your life, be careful to always remember that you embody a character. A scene must be engaged between yourself and your intended target before initiating a murder.
It is the same for kills with minimal reasons. You are not going to kill someone just because he/she insulted you.
VEHICLE DEATHMATCH (VDM)
VDM means originally, kill with a vehicle. On CopsRP, the carkill also takes into account the bumpers.
Crushing to kill is strictly forbidden and punishable.
Bumping into a player is allowed only if the life of the character is not directly threatened.
This rule does not apply to law enforcement if lethal force is authorised.
During robberies, it is important that a negotiation scene is engaged between the robbers and the LEOs. If the negotiations are dropped, a 10 seconds cooldown need to be taken in consideration before a shooting can start.
Powergaming consists of two things: to commit an unrealistic act or to force the roleplay so as to leave no chance of response to other players, to benefit in the scene ... etc.
Daniel Siegler slips his hand into the man's pocket in front of him and steals his money, keys and phone. (This is forcing the RP).
Samuel Cardillo jumps off the cliff, lands on both legs and resumes his run. (it's an unrealistic act)
Metagaming is using OOC (Out Of Character) information in character (IC). Metagaming is strictly forbidden and will be met with strong sanctions. Only Patrol Channels on TeamSpeak and in game Voice Chat/Text chat can be used to transmit IC informations. Also, saying that you were using a radio is not an excuse.
Examples of metagaming:
A player is a Civilian Room on TeamSpeak with another player but they are too far from each other IC but still communicate about IC actions or IC information.
A player is on TeamSpeak/Discord/… and tells other players in the same OOC channel to go to a place IC.
A player “/twt *DM* I will be at the train station” to his friend and you decide to go there too based on reading this tweet. (you should not know this information since it is a DM)
REVENGE KILL (RK)
When you die, you forget who killed you, how and when: you leave the hospital forgetting this. You must be a good player and accept defeat. Keep playing without wanting revenge. Do not return to the scene after your death since the scene is surely not over. Wait for the scene to finish or do something else, but do not intervene in any way in the scene where you were killed (whether to shoot, investigate, transport people etc ...)
The revenge kill rule does not apply if you have not been killed but you must have a minimum of realism: you can not get up after being shot by a rifle while you were wearing a bulletproof vest as if nothing had happened and attack directly. This can be sanctioned for powergaming.
Jumping several times to go faster is totally forbidden, even if you are all alone and you are doing bunny to go somewhere IC, you do not have to bunny.
There are two types of languages on the server:
- The word IC,(In Character), which represents InGame actions or InGame description.
- The word OOC (Out of Character), which represents everything that has to do with the real world.
It is forbidden to mix the two languages. (Ex: /ooc search the vehicle of the suspect, what do I find?). People doing so will be warned then kicked.
HEAL DURING COMBAT
In shootouts, fights, brawls, ... you are strictly forbidden to heal yourself or someone else. Indeed, it is unrealistic to heal in a few minutes during an action and leave as if nothing had happened.
USE OF /ME
The /me command allows you to have your character perform an action in the chat. (Ex: "Jones Tucky walks to the bar, raises his hand and is about to talk")
In order to allow everyone to know what your character is doing, if no game mechanics for the said action are available, you are asked to use the /me as often as possible.
Usage of external software to benefit you on FiveM servers is strictly prohibited on CopsRP, especially cheat software. Failure to comply with this rule will lead to permanent ban and the deletion of your account
Failure to comply with this rule may lead to a ban and/or the deletion of your account and a report to the competent authorities.
At any time, if the victim asks you to stop, you must do so.
In order to avoid abuse, the sniper rifle weapon is reserved for police ranks 4 and 5 (Chief) , authorized members by the faction leader and civilians.
In addition, sniper rifles are prohibited in shooting, retrenchment and robbery. Sniper is only allowed in case of discrete targeted assassination, that is to say, a scene in itself, not related to shootings, entrenchments, robbery and they are forbidden to use from the ground.
The transgression of this rule can lead to be kicked from the faction and / or in game kick.
RolePlay engagement still need to take place before any shot is taken by the sniper.
AWAY FROM KEYBOARD (AFK)
AFK, away from keyboard literally means "Absent from his keyboard", it is about people not in front of the game. The AFK is authorized but it is strongly advised to leave the server if one is absent.
Abuse of AFK, manipulation to avoid the auto-kick is liable to account deletion.
OOC DURING SCENES
OOC during scenes is by definition forbidden. You absolutely must play the scene, whatever happens and even if you notice inconsistencies / abuses / non-roleplaying act. In case of dispute, you must report on the appropriate Discord channel. However in some cases, to reframe the story, one can use the OOC briefly.
The OOC during scenes is liable to kick or banishment depending on the situation and level.
Only Staff members have the opportunity to cut a scene and come to a place in a OOC way.
OOC THROUGH VOICE CHAT
Using Out Of Character through the voice chat is not authorised. If you need to talk OOC then use /ooc directly. Abuse of OOC through voice chat will lead to a kick or ban.
Debating/arguments through OOC chat on the server is strictly forbidden. Use the Discord for anything that could lead to abuse of OOC in game.
EXIT THE GAME TO AVOID A SCENE
When a player leaves the game the server announces it automatically and is logged. People leaving the game to avoid embarrassing scenes (Ex: an arrest) will be heavily sanctioned.
Similarly, people leaving the game to avoid being sent to jail by the police will be punished in the same way.
/requestaction is a command allowing to request an answer from a player concerning an action you are doing. (Ex: /requestaction idofplayer Search the car of Sean Henberg, what do I find?).
If you use this command the wrong way, you will be kicked.
When using it, be sure that the description is completely realistic.
CHARACTER KILL (CK)
Just like in any RolePlay game, your character can often be killed without being forced to create another character, you simply forget everything about the scene or scenes related to the murder. (This is called PlayerKill or PK)
CHARACTER KILL (CK) means that your character is definitely dead. If your character is CK, you are forced to change character, which usually amounts to a change of identity, personality, job and / or faction.
This act having very serious consequences, a CK can not be effective if and only if the Staff Admin (MrDiamondDirt) has agreed. The person(s) wanting CK a character is / are required to make a request to the Staff Admin before performing the action.
SHOOTINGS & BRAWLS BEING CIVIL
It is strictly forbidden for one or more civilians to organize shootings or brawls against gangs.
You must act in a appropriate way when confronted by a gang, a sensitive areas and especially retaliation. A gang is a large criminal organization with a lot of weapons. Because of this, it makes sense that you do not have to provoke gangs purely for pleasure or to seek action. However, if you want to kill a gang member with good reasons, you can do it in a realistic setting and very quickly.
When confronted to situations that could lead to PK, fear roleplay should be initiated, commonly abbreviated 'FearRP', which is the concept that your character is afraid to die. ...
CRIMINAL RP FOR OFFICIAL JOBS
Criminal RP for LEOs and EMS is strictly forbidden. If you want to become a criminal, you will have to leave your current job through a proper roleplay scene.
Judges will only be used on organised RolePlay where staff members have been informed and can only be played by the Staff Admin (aka MrDiamondDirt).
If you have nothing to fear, it is completely useless to start one. Vehicle Pursuit without valid reasons or lack of action are punishable.
During a Vehicle Pursuit, you can ride at full speed unless you are on a dirt road where the speed limit is 40 Mph. Play any major accident scenes that may occur, barrels roll, and of course it is completely forbidden to kill people with your car without valid reasons (becoming VDM).
This type of roleplay is totally forbidden. It comes down to deathmatch. There are other types of servers to play this way. If you break this rule, you will be banned as if you would have committed DeathMatch.
Kidnapping is the abduction of a person for the general purpose of asking ransom money from relatives. LEOs will not pay ransoms for the release of someone.
Kidnapping scenes must be realistic and well played, so it is forbidden to kidnap anyone randomly: it is important to have a valid reason to perform this action, because you risk several years in prison.
It is also forbidden to call a job (Mechanic, Taxi, Police, EMS, …) with the sole intent to kidnap the member who goes to the place of call.
It is prohibited to kidnap for racketeering, a kidnapping is more serious and generally lasts longer than a racket and aims to extract several thousand dollars.
It is totally forbidden to kidnap EMS.
