    Roleplay Improvements



    In the coming weeks and months it is the intention of the staff team to improve the roleplay standard in the server. While we will always remain a dynamic roleplay server that offers various levels of roleplay and we all thoroughly respect it being in the player's hands what goes on in the in-character world, we would still like to offer a base level of roleplay to those that are interested in having more roleplay interactions. Every rule and policy will be under review with the intention of improving the roleplay standards in the server and we will attempt to encourage and incentivize more roleplay wherever possible. We understand that this will be a long process and the results will not be immediate, but we are very willing to make the effort to make improvements.

    We already took a small step towards this when reducing the frequency of turfs in the v2.0.00 Update to open up more time for the players to take part in other activities, among which we hope will include more roleplay. Now we will be introducing progressive punishments against deathmatching, metagaming and spam and cracking down on this rule-breaking (more about that next). We hope this will foster a more roleplay environment and helps remove any disturbances from any roleplay situations. Next we will be reviewing the Non-RP behavior offense to aid in reducing unrealistic behavior. Gang Management has already taken a first step towards this by requiring higher standards of gang leaders when testing and inviting new members into their gangs.

    We will continue to keep the spirit of the community intact, which is that we value fun above all. Ultimately it will all still be in the hands of the players as we can merely set the framework and offer the stage for the roleplay, but it will be the players that will define the quantity and quality of the roleplay in the server. We ask for the community's help in making these improvements and hope that you will be the change you want to see in the server by taking part in more roleplay.



    Progressive punishments against DM, metagaming and spam



    As stated previously: In our efforts to foster a more roleplay environment and help remove any disturbances from any roleplay situations, as well as to hit the rule-breakers where it hurts, we have decided to introduce progressive punishments against deathmatching, metagaming and spam. This basically means that we now have a system that tracks how many times people have broken these rules and we will take more drastic measures each time by issuing harsher punishments. This also offers an explanation to the player each time they are prisoned, informs them of rule, why it is in place and warns them that the punishments will get worse if they continue breaking this rule. We will be cracking down on this rule-breaking, so we strongly recommend that you abide by the rules.

    See the spoiler box to see the exact punishments that will now be issued against these offenses.

    Fight against Hacking

    We will be cracking down on hackers harder than ever before. Leniency will no longer be a word any hacker will get to hear and hackers are entitled to nothing. That even includes the evidence which they were banned for; this can be kept confidential and only reviewed by our staff (we have no reason to reveal our detection methods to hackers). It remains at our total discretion to go as far as totally erasing their accounts. We will make a continued effort to improve our anti-cheat to reduce this issue as much as possible. In the last couple of weeks we have made many improvements to our anti-cheat and have better equipped our Hack Investigations Department with new systems, tools and commands that will help combat hackers more than ever before.

    In addition to that we will also be hardening our Ban Punishments against hackers. These are the new Ban Punishments against hacking:


    Hacking/Major Offense Ban

    1st Offense
    • 3 Month Ban.
    • All money & materials fined
    • All vehicles removed
    • All houses, businesses & dynamic doors removed


    2nd Offense
    • 4 Month Ban.
    • Full account reset


    3rd Offense
    • Indefinite ban (minimum of 6 months) — The possibility of an unban is at the discretion of the Director of Ban Appeals.
    • If ever unbanned, the account will be fully reset.
    To the hackers we say the following: We will catch you. It is only a matter of time, but in the end everyone eventually gets caught. You will regret it and you will be punished severely if you decide to play unfairly. Consider for a moment the unfairness of what you are doing; not only towards other players but also towards yourself. Ask yourself if this is really how you want to play the game. In the end we are at a serious advantage with the ever-improving systems, commands and tools available to us while you only have time on your side. Consider this a fair warning, because this is your chance to play fairly or face the consequences.



    Ninth Advisory Council

    That punishment is only issued at the 6th time of committing the DM offense. Which would mean you would need to have been caught deathmatching 6 times and even have served a temporary ban (due to a 3 warning ban). If at that point you still want to continue deathmatching then we are left with no choice but to give you such a hefty weapon restriction.
