Server Rules

 

General Server Rules  

  • You must join the CAD and register your characters, vehicles, license plates & weapons.  (Yes, you MUST change your vehicle license plate and register it.)
  • You must change your PED once you are in-game -- do not use default PED.  (PED can be edited through the F1 menu)
  • You MUST be an Applied CIV to conduct Bank Robberies, Convenience Store Robberies, or run from LEO.
  • When choosing character names for your RP, choose a real sounding name and do not use troll names, names of famous people or character names from media. 
  • Do not use offensive names or words as part of your Character or Steam nicknames. 
  • Do not use colored names or images/emojis in your name or steam nickname. (colored names is reserved for NCRP Staff only. If you have it from another server/community, you must update your Steam nickname to remove it while on NCRP)
  • Use Common Sense -- we aim to be a serious roleplay server most of the time, which means you must obey the rules of the road and react how you would in real situations.
  • Respect ALL players.
  • There is no discussion of other Role Play servers on NCRP discord OR in-game.
    • There will be an exception to this rule for a select few who are granted a "Server Partner" role.  This exception may only be granted by a NCRP DIRECTOR
    • Owner/Director of another server may have the short name of their server in brackets before their nickname on discord only, AFTER being granted the server partner role.
    • Resource Developers, graphic designers, others who serve to better the RP experience may be designated a server partner and put their craft in brackets before their nickname on discord only.
    • Again, this applies to discord only. These descriptors are not considered part of RP and therefore if carried in game you will be asked to leave and change your in-game name
  • You must be able to use voice chat in-game (mic & ears)
    • Use of Voice Changers/Voice Altering Devices is not permitted.
  • The use of other Discord servers for communications and activities related to RP at NCRP is not permitted.
  • Only staff is permitted to have colored names. 
  • You must value your Life & Freedom
    • If you have a gun pointed at you, react in such a way that would spare your life
    • Don't run from the police if you haven't actually done something wrong that would cause the need to run (warrants, drugs, suspended license, etc)
  • You must comply with requests/demands of LEO (within reason)
    • If you are cuffed and within a ~5ft distance of an LEO then you can not realistically get away.
  • Teleporting may only be used in the following situations:
    • To enter Area of Play (AOP) at login
    • When released from Hospital that is NOT in AOP
    • When released from Prison that is NOT in AOP

    • Shooting through walls/floor/roof/etc
    • Teleport breach killing
    • (anything listed as "will not be tolerated")
  • There is no public Police or Fire/EMS.  These are strictly whitelist positions.
  • Use your imagination, do not repeat scenarios over and over--robbing the 24/7 which leads to traffic chase which leads to foot chase is very tired.

 

Vehicle and Driving/Flying Rules:

  • EXCESSIVE SPEED OR DRIVING STUNTS WITHIN CITY LIMITS IS CONSIDERED COP BAITING AND WILL RESULT IN DISCIPLINARY ACTION.
  • Speed limits are displayed on your screen on the lower left above the map.  These limits override any speed limits posted on signs throughout San Andreas.
  • Randomly driving around at high speeds or erratically with no obvious intentions for roleplay (including drifting) is called NITRP and may result in your removal from the server.
  • You must drive using common sense real life physics. (We all know GTA physics often allow vehicles that should be disabled from an accident to keep going but you are expected to know and RP how damage would affect the vehicle normally). 
  • Tire Smoke and Colored headlights are not permitted at any time due to sync issues causing lag. (standard white Xenon lights are permitted)
  • Some real life replacement vehicles try to use GTA stock mod parts that do not fit. If the mod part does not properly fit the vehicle, it is NOT permitted to be used. 
  • Theft of Fire/EMS vehicles is PROHIBITED.
  • Theft of LEO vehicles is only allowed by the subject of a current priority.
    • You must be able to evade/disable an officer to take their vehicle
    • You may NOT establish a priority by theft of an LEO vehicle -- you must have priority status prior to the theft.

    • You are in that department

    • Armored vehicles are not permitted (except vehicles being used by Emergency Services and a limited selection available to CIV2s/CIV3s).

Civilian owned armored vehicles are not permitted to run bullet proof tires. Normal service emergency vehicles are also not permitted to run bullet proof tires.

    • No armed, armored, attack or emergency service aircraft may be used by civilians.

    • Civilian aircraft MUST remain at an altitude keeping them above the tallest building in their area.
    • RP’ing a controlled crash is permitted but is considered a priority and therefore is subject to priority rules.

Priorities Explained:

  • Priority In Progress (PIP) means there is an active MAJOR RP scenario in progress. The only people allowed to commit felonies during PIP is those that are directly involved in the scenario. All others must observe Priority rules.
  • Priorities on Cooldown (POC/PCD) is the time period immediately following a priority scenario. This cooldown time allows the emergency services a moment to catch up and relax so they are not running non stop major situations. During POC/PCD, nobody is allowed to commit any type of felony offense.
  • Priorities on Hold (POH) is when priorities are locked. This occurs during times when there is not enough emergency services to effectively respond to major situations, times when there is large scale FailRP/RDM/VDM occurring, or if there has been several major incidents in a row and emergency services needs a break. During POH, no felonies may be committed.
  • When Peacetime is in effect, the same limitations as POC/PCD/POH are in place.
  • Only one Priority is to be in progress at a time. You may not start a new priority RP while Priorities are on Hold, Priority in Progress or during Priority Cooldown.
    • Priorities Consist of but are not limited to
      • Vehicle pursuit
      • Foot pursuit
      • Shooting at anyone
      • Bank Robbery
      • Murder
      • Major motor vehicle accident
      • Fire (vehicle or structure)
      • Auto Theft 
      • Emergency Service vehicle theft is only allowed once priority has commenced BY the subject of priority
  • If your RP started during PCD, POH, PT, or during PIP while not related to the active priority, when PCD/POH/PT is released, you may  not escalate to a priority. IE: if you are in a traffic stop, you may not start running when PCD/POH/PT is released. 
  • Do not repeatedly request termination of or complain about “Priorities on Hold”. LEO want to chase you as bad as you want to go on a shooting spree.  It will be removed when able.

Animal & Child PEDS

  • Animal PED players MUST
    • Be a Level 2 CIV (CIV2)
      • If you are not currently on in any LEO, Fire, or EMS department and but want to be a K9 for one of them, you must still achieve CIV2, then you may apply to the department of your choice requesting to be a K9 for them. It will be at the discretion of that department to decide if they want to hire and train you for that position.
      • If you are already on an LEO, Fire, or EMS department and want to be a K9 for your department, you must still achieve CIV2 first. Department personnel who focus on their department duties and are not active as actual CIVs are still able to achieve CIV2 ranks. Each department has ranks that will coincide with CIV promotion ranks. Upon achieving the appropriate rank in your department to qualify for a higher CIV rank, you may then fill out the appropriate CIV rank promotion application. Be advised, this is not automatic/guaranteed CIV promotion. Upon submitting your CIV promotion application, the CIV management will review your application just like any other CIV promotion application with the one exception being that the requirement for "quality of CIV roleplay" is disregarded as your RP quality is already factored by your department promotion.
