    Short description: Currently in order to see the fee, you either need to /vpark and /vget the car in order to see it, or call 207 and be charged straight up and be told how much. No other-way to see how much insurance is. Detailed description: Currently in order to see how much the insurance cost on a specific car you have only one way of knowing, which is spawning the car(re-spawning it if it is already spawned) in order to get notified of how much you owe in insurance. Calling 205 does not state how much you owe, if you call 207 you are straight off charged with it and told how much. My idea revolves around the fact that the /vstats command will display the fee of how much you owe insurance if it is not paid, if it is paid it will display expiration date, since that information does exists in-real life on the paperwork for the car. In the current situation, we need to go to the UCP and through several sub-menus to get to this information. Commands to add: None, since /vstats exists already Items to add: N/A How would your suggestion improve the server? It's more of Quality of Life improvement Additional information: How currently the /vstats is displayed: My idea is make Insurance a line of it's own showing price, expiration date, which will enhance the quality of life in-my honest opinion.

    Vinewood in many ways is a paradoxical society. On the one hand, you got the city of dreams with Vinewood as the center of upper class glamour and snobby celebrity superstars. On the other, you got the strange and bizarre cult of aspiring youth that pursue the fame and glory of the flipside at all costs. This thread will showcase a collection of tales depicting events of a modern multi-ethnic community of youngsters that settled around the Alta and Hawick area in Vinewood to escape their distinctive pasts and seek better fortunes.

       LSFD's New Fleet Aska Redan The Los Santos fire department recently got some much-needed upgrades to their aging fleet of fire engines and emergency vehicles. After weeks of waiting, these new vehicles are ready to service the fine city of Los Santos. I spoke with Fire Chief Chloe MacKenzie on the acquisition of the new fleet. She detailed to me briefly that, "We've been waiting for some time to get these new trucks. They arrived early this morning and I'm rather excited to show them off!" She later took me into her office and gave me a brief but detailed rundown of her new fleet. Her enthusiasm for the new trucks and serving the people of LS was palpable. Most of these new assets are on modern and updated Vapid Chassis, so expect speedy response times in the coming years. We started with possibly the most iconic of all fire engines: the ladder truck.  "This is our ladder truck, call signed Quint-1. It's a combined fire engine and ladder truck. It carries 500 gallons of water, a 105' tower ladder and lots of technical rescue equipment." , Chief MacKenzie said of the machine. This new red monster of a truck is the pride and joy of the Los Santos Fire Department, so much so that this reporter was allowed to be one the first non-FD staff to be given a ride. And to my childhood pleasure, allowed to turn the sirens on before we departed the station. From high-rises to little Billy's cat being stuck in a tree, put your mind at ease because Quint-1 will be on the scene. Following that, I was introduced to their Brush Patrol fleet. These smaller more agile and nimble engines are to be used for rural calls and combating wildfires as well as search and recuse operations out in the rugged terrain of Blaine county. Expect to see them out and about during this late summer season. Alongside the brush patrol, they have the Swift Water Rescue Vehicle, an oddity among this fleet as it's the only one that houses a boat and other water rescue equipment. Shockingly one the few non-Vapid additions to the fleet are the Bravado Ambulances.  Chief MacKenzie said about the new ambulances, "While the chassis is newer and built for speed, much of the interior equipment remains. But with the newer framework and great visibility provided by LED Lights and reflectors they should increase response times significantly." Last but not least, they have some of the more street legal but modified Vapid line of Caracara pick-up trucks. These won't be on the scene fighting anything smaller than a beach bonfire but will often be at scenes serving as a point of contact to EMS, Police, and other Fire Departments to coordinate their efforts in large-scale emergencies. Chief MacKenzie has high hopes for these new trucks. Her beaming smile and desire to show her new additions off to me is a mark of someone who enjoys their job. When asked if she expects the new fleet to improve the FD's ability to respond to emergencies she said, "Drastically. This has been over a year in testing and evaluation. I visited several different manufacturers and fire departments across the southwest to learn about these new vehicles. We had a severe lack of specialized and everyday equipment. It was old and out-dated, and some just didn't fit our specifications. So the new additions to the fleet will be a huge improvement in providing fire, rescue, and medical services to the city and people.  In the coming years, these vehicles will be invaluable in providing prompt assistance whenever and wherever needed in Los Santos and Blaine County. Saints News would like to thank Chief MacKenzie and the other Fire Department staff for providing access to view their new fleet, and we also thank them for their service and professionalism while on duty.

    Guna Yala dancers disappointed after their application as exotic dancers is rejected It's not always easy, finding a job in Los Santos. One interest, however, seems to be quite constant: exotic and tribal culture. Most of the denizens of the San Andreas state saw the desperate search for exotic dancers, most likely conducted by cultural institutions of various kinds. But luckily for them, a family from the wonderful region of Guna Yala, in Panama, was ready to answer the call. After preparing their traditionnal exotic dances for weeks, in order to showcase the cultural richness of their native region, they replied to several of the various ads that are plastered over Los Santos' advertisement apps. After some time waiting for their interview, they noticed most of the other candidates were local women. While their dancing skills were certainly good, they were far, far from exotic, and the family had some great hopes! Alas! their efforts were vain. Four different local clubs rejected their application, in spite of an absolutely monumental display of the ancestral dances of Guna Yala. Many questions crossed their minds, which they shared with us. « Is Panama not exotic enough? Should we have chosen other dances? » they wondered as they left the very last interview of the day. « It's strange, though, » one of them noticed, « because one of the dancers they hired wasn't looking very exotic. She looked very American. ». Paints News confirmed the woman in question is indeed from Sandy Shores. When interrogated, the owners had no good explanation to give, overall. Some mentioned the standards expected by their clientele, others that they were looking for a « different type of dancing » altogether. The last, however, seems to have been the victim of a sad misunderstanding. When we inquired, he concluded: « Nah, now I'll just say strippers in my ad, because if I ever have to waste my time like that again, Imma fucking kill someone... ». Paints news is a news outlet, providing the most dubious information from the less reliable sources. Nothing we post should be taken as fact, unless you really have no critical sense. For more not-so-dependable information, do follow us on Facebrowser. We cannot, however, offer you exotic dances.

    Used to love the interactions between PD and my former faction when we were roleplaying in Rancho. Some of those cops are still around, shout out to them. I had my best roleplay experience with these people but I gotta be honest though, for the past half-year I have seen a huge deterioration in the PD on this server, sure it's hard to control the quality of one's members, especially when the faction is as big as PD but had any other faction's members been acting the way I've seen members of the PD act, it would have caused serious consequences for that faction (Not saying there been no consequences, I genuinely don't know as I'm not staff or in the PD). Nonetheless, I respect the work PD put in and I genuinely hope I've been unlucky with meeting these people as like I stated before I have had some great roleplay with members of the PD. I know not everyone is a metagaming trigger happy robot without emotions in the PD and that's not what I want to say either as I know and had the pleasure of roleplaying with several good roleplayers from the PD. I am also unable to say if the leadership in PD has a close watch on their members as I don't do police RP but as a faction leader that has been in leadership in many factions I've often had to be responsible for my members and their actions, this does not seem to apply to the PD though. Is gang unit still a thing? Have not seen them for a long time. Would be very nice to see them again as well as maybe a second police station. Keep it up.

    LSPD replaces fines with loot boxes to improve the experience Nobody likes getting fined. No matter how it's managed, it usually is a bad moment for the person receiving it, and an instant of joy and delight for the officer issuing it. This was seen as a discrepency by Wilson, the new Marketing and Customer Experience Manager hired by the LSPD. His solution? Balancing the joy more, and offering the people receiving fines a more enticing experience. Of course, having to pay for a (supposed) vehicular crime is hard to make fun. It took Wilson several months of research, and after observing the officers' behavior for so long, he finally figured out what the best solution was. Inspired by the mechanics used in video games, he suggested to replace fines with loot boxes, containing various amounts of money the person receiving it would have to pay. « It creates a true element of suspense and surprise! And with the right animations it can even be an EPIC moment! ». The mechanics are quite simple. Every time an LSPD officer pulls you over, he will provide you with a loot box to open. This loot box will contain 4 cards, whose quality range from "common" (a $200 fine) to "legendary" (a $5000 fine). The combination of the four cards you obtain will indicate how much money you must pay, regardless of the crime you may or may not have actually committed. For the few lucky ones, we were told a special Apex Legendary card can sometimes drop... Will you be among the first? Some groups of citizens feel concerned about potential abuse, especially about being fined for crimes they never committed in the first place. However, many remarked this was common practice. And from an operational point of view, the LSPD chief of police was certain this novelty « will not fundamentally change the way our officers give away fines. ». It will merely « Make it a more friendly experience, with lights and music » instead of « something so grim ». As for Wilson, he claims to be « delighted by that change, although we will most likely use another term than loot box, since it doesn't contain loot. It's more of a surprise mechanic! ». Paints news is a news outlet, providing the most dubious information from the less reliable sources. Nothing we post should be taken as fact, unless you really have no critical sense. For more not-so-dependable information, do follow us on Facebrowser. We cannot, however, pay that fine for you.

    I disagree with it being abused, something like this would be heavily moderated (Would probably go through some approval phase before accepted). On the other hand there could be a lot of annoying bugs and pontential crashes.

    I put my two cents together already and don't feel like i've been given a fair answer. No cop is going to stand and argue with a paramedic whether to self transport or not from a realistic point of view like they did with me. I do not accept to take such things In Character when that's just a clear fault in mindset of the faction members and their portrayal of American law enforcement officers in a metropolis. They can be trained all they want to be trained but it's not their job to do paramedic duties despite understanding, like I said, the fact that they sometimes must given circumstances. I understand the very volatile nature of crime rates spread across neighborhoods but it sounds like those types of situations need to be addressed in IC terms by bringing in city wide tactical alerts, forcing officers to partner up and a much more broader and cautious approach with high regard to officer safety. They did not portray such fear when encountered the situations I did, and they weren't even in the same neighborhoods to begin with. In regards to clearing officers and having officers on scenes, you're still not getting my point and it seems like ranking people's mindset is also to attend 3 calls and spread 3 officers across them instead of putting all of 3 officers in 1 call to provide quality police role-play. You instead seem like you want to police the server and put as many players in jail. Just because you've been stuck with FD and someone got away with a robbery isn't going to hurt anybody and especially not you as a police role-player. I'd appreciate a leadership point of view. If not, I've just said what I wanted to say and we'll agree to disagree. I appreciate your responses, I just don't see things the way you see it is all. I'll look into PLM to see if it's indeed of poor role-play quality in their eyes having cops argue with paramedics with an ambulance on scene on who should transport an injured victim, and I'll be sure to start reporting people to them for poor role-play from now on. And if not, I'll make ends meet and take it IC to see how far it goes. Interjecting with an injured person could cost a police department a hefty lawsuit and there's quite a track record of that in real life. It's why most cops either administer first aid if they can but generally don't touch a victim by saying they're not medics.

    GTA World In-Game Rules 0) Admin Discretion and The Intent of the Rules Rule 0 is present to help understand players how rules are enforced by the admin team. Admin Discretion gives admins the power to punish players for offenses not listed in the rules below when a player's actions or general behavior creates a negative playing experience for another player, and/or is detrimental to the realistic roleplaying environment we aim to create on the server. Examples of Admin Discretion under Rule 0 is punishing a player for having roleplay not up to standard, directing a player to change their roleplay to better fit the server environment and punishing a player that has broken a rule despite it not being a written example of the rule. That last example brings us onto the second half of the rule. It is impossible to list every example of each rule being broken. Players are expected to understand the intent of the rule and not abuse any loopholes in order to get around this intent. Admins may step in should a player be found to be abusing loopholes where the rule was clearly broken. 1) Common Courtesy While out of character it is expected of you to remain respectful and calm towards others. Every player should feel welcome in the community no matter what their background is. Any form of OOC discrimination is forbidden and can result in a community ban if it is severe enough. Always follow an administrator's instructions even if you disagree with the decision. If you feel an admin is making the wrong decision, the decision can be reviewed by a member of Staff Management.  Failing to roleplay a situation is strictly forbidden. You're expected to be roleplaying at all times, If a player breaks the rule during the situation you must finish the roleplay and report later. You must also roleplay any injuries that occur to your character or any accidents that happen when driving, even if you are alone. Examples of breaking this rule: insulting another player through /pm or /b; spamming; disregarding an administrator's decision; failing to roleplay a car crash, unless it was clearly caused due to desync (contact an admin through /report if you wish for a crash to be voided); leaving the server intentionally to avoid roleplay or consequences of any kind; taking advantage of an OOC issue to give yourself an advantage in an IC situation (stealing a vehicle from a player whose game crashed, initiating a shootout when a player involved crashed, driving off from a traffic stop when a law enforcement officer disconnects, waiting for someone to type to get an IC advantage); AFK during roleplay situation; ignoring an employee at an open business and just using the script to buy something, customize your character or customize your vehicle. You must roleplay with an employee if they are present. Vehicle modding must always be roleplayed in full. 2) Powergaming It is not allowed to perform actions which would not be possible in real life either, this is not limited to roleplay through /me. It is not allowed to force actions upon another player. You are not allowed to roleplay a non-player character. E.G. Roleplay through a /me to lift up a truck. Jumping from height and not roleplaying the consequences from your fall. Roleplay through a /me to shoot a player with the result of the player ending up dead in the process. Looting a stash without properly roleplaying its description (nor knowing about it) It is mandatory to RP fear in situations/actions which you would usually refrain from doing realistically. Drawing a gun to rob someone in the middle of the street/populated area. Running off/drawing a gun while being aimed at. Lack of fear roleplay or fear for your life in general may result in a permanent character kill. CCTV are permitted within a person's residence, if a player has mounted cameras outside their residence, in their vehicles or any place filming the public, they must get the consent of all parties involved. Exceptions: Stores that can be robbed have CCTV. The police can review these. State agencies and Government vehicles may use front facing dash cams, without the consent of anyone. CCTV is permitted inside Government buildings without the consent of anyone. Property safes are supposed to remain visible at all time, you cannot hide them behind furnitures. 3) Metagaming Providing in-character (IC) information to another player using out-of-character (OOC) means. Providing OOC information to another player using IC means. Using OOC means to find in-character information. Using OOC communication and/or information to influence anything in-character. All characters you create cannot interact with each other in any way. You may not use a third party to transfer IC information from one of your characters to another one of your characters either. You may not reference any of your other characters. You may only have one character involved in a particular objective and/or RP scene at the same time. Examples; you and other faction members arrange a drug deal, then you show up on another character; you report someone missing to the police on more than one character; showing up to a business you own and spending money; gathering information on one character, and using that information on another character. Members of approved factions may have alternative characters in the same faction after approval is granted by Faction Management. These characters are given some leeway when it comes to benefiting their own faction or referencing their other characters. Any platforms not under the control of GTA World cannot be considered in-character unless it has been clearly approved by the appropriate team within the admin team. Factions wishing to have IC channels in their Discord must receive approval prior from Faction Management. Giving out any IC information on Discord without approval and without an admin present to supervise is considered metagaming. Name tags are present to make it easier to identify who is doing what in a roleplay scenes. Name tags should not be used to obtain IC information such as a player's name or their location. Players should make sure that they have clearly seen a character before they can identify them IC, rather than just relying on the nametag. Two examples of this are identifying someone in a car with tinted windows or slowing down when passing a group to read the nametags. The usage of *Describes Firstname Lastname* is considered to be metagaming as it encourages a breach of this part of the rule. Returning to the scene of your death is also considered metagaming, even if done on another character. Some time must be given so the players on the scene can leave it. Once the players involved in your death (involved meaning present at the scene in this particular instance), you can roleplay normally in that particular area. Returning to the same neighborhood is enough to be considered returning to the scene. You may not roleplay gathering information on your own death on any character you have, or referencing any of your dead characters on any of your other characters. Interacting with your own body on any character E.G. You message a player using /pm or on Discord to pick you up at x location; You use VOIP communication (Discord, Teamspeak, Skype etc.) to coordinate during a pursuit or shootout; Driving around with a friend or friends on VOIP and making decisions to do things without roleplaying in-game and making these decisions IC; You get CKed on one character, and someone tells one of your other characters about it so you can get revenge; You use more than one character to benefit a faction or business you are a part of without FM approval; One of your characters gets beat up so you @everyone on a Discord server to get in-game to help you; You see the cops outside a friend's house so you PM him on Discord to warn him; You PM someone that is masked to find out their real name to get around the point of the /mask system; You get killed in a gang area and then return on another character to get revenge. 4) Deathmatching Killing another player without or with poor reason to do so. This also includes you provoking others, followed by performing aggressive actions such as shooting or killing and (or) the provoked party ending up dead. E.G. Shooting at a player because he is black and your character hates people from Afro American backgrounds. Calling a player names for them to come after you so you can shoot them. 5) Character Customization Players must create a realistic character using the customization system. Admins may request a player to change their character's customization if they deem it unfit for the server environment. Characters must dress appropriately for the weather, or at least roleplay the downsides of wearing inappropriate clothes. The current weather can be seen by using the /weather command. Players must only obstruct their face when they have an in-character reason to do so and it makes sense to have their face obstructed where they are. Using /mask to hide your player's name tag behind a mask ID may only be done when the character's face is properly obstructed. Certain items in the mask store are present for character customization and shouldn't be used to /mask unless there is another object (eg. a motorcycle helmet) present to obstruct the character's face. Examples of this rule being broken: dressing your character to resemble an alien; making your body invisible or intentionally glitched; wearing a balaclava while hanging out on the beach; wearing a winter jacket during the summer; using a mask from the mask shop that does not block your character's face but hides your name with the Mask ID. 6) Character Rules When naming your character, you must consider the following; names cannot be famous or be similar to a famous person's name; names may not be the same as or similar to characters in video games, movies, TV shows or any other form of media; names should match the character's background; names should exist in the modern day and be reasonably common; names should not be comical or reference memes or pop culture; names may not contain any special characters, and they must match a Firstname Lastname format; names may not be nicknames and should be full names as they would be shown on a government-issued ID; Gag names such as Ben Dover are not allowed either. Admins have the final say when it comes to a name being valid or not. Players instructed to find another name should do so. None of your characters should have any impact on anything your other characters are involved in. The metagaming rule goes into more detail about this. Each of your characters should be unique from your other characters. Making similar characters that have the same motivations, goals, objectives etc. is forbidden. This is to avoid players name changing to avoid consequences. Switching names between your characters is also forbidden. Should a character be CKed or name changed, the character that comes after should have no connection to the previous character. Any character in a faction that is name changed or CKed must follow Faction Management's regulations for returning to the same faction. If a faction has no written agreement with Faction Management, then a returning character should be discussed with Faction Management. The purpose of this rule is to make sure CKs have an impact on factions. 7) Third Party Modifications And Software Any type of game modification or software which gives a player any type of advantage over another player is forbidden. This includes but is not limited to binds or hotkeys using programs such as AutoHotkey or macros on a keyboard or mouse. Client side modding to give an advantage is also considered a breach of the rule. Client side modding may only be done for aesthetic purposes and should never be done to change the function of anything in-game. Players are permitted to use a controller to play the game. However, due to the fact that controllers have aim assist they may not be used during shootings. All shooting must be done while playing with mouse and keyboard. Controller usage for driving and flying is acceptable. E.G. Using a vehicle mod to change the handling of a vehicle or change the size to create an advantage; Spawning in items; Use of godmode or giving yourself body armour without in-character access; Usage of keybinds, hotkeys or macros to replace roleplay or give an advantage in a roleplay scene. 8.) Bug Abuse Any bugs found out by players are to be reported in the right forum section. Abusing or exploiting features in order to gain a result that is not intended by the server's script, the RageMP client and/or the game itself is considered to be bug abuse. Situations that are likely to be bugs should also be reported as they are found. Some examples are finding a property for sale that has a lot of weapons or drugs inside, finding a vehicle that is not available to purchase and finding a way to use certain scripts (such as scripted jobs) more efficiently outside of the intended use. Situations like these should be reported to an admin so it can be investigated before a player interacts with it. Any bugs discovered by players must be reported on the forums HERE under the correct section or reported in-game for staff input. Players found to be abusing/exploiting bugs in the server's script are liable to be banned. Players who are also aware of the bug but do not report witnessing abuse/exploitation may also be subject to a punishment up to a permanent ban. If you think you have discovered a bug in-game and wish to test it, it may only be done under the supervision of an admin. E.G. discovering a bug that allows you to drive locked vehicles or dealership vehicles, then driving said vehicles around; failing to report a bug which results in other players abusing it after; finding a property for sale that costs less than it should, or has the wrong interior, then failing to report it; exploiting a reported bug that allows you to duplicate assets such as weapons and money. 9) Offensive Roleplay The purpose of this rule is to find a balance between allowing players to be comfortable when playing while still allowing some freedom during roleplay. The roleplay that is restricted under this rule falls under the broad term of "Offensive Roleplay", but it does not mean that any roleplay that offends a player is not allowed. Offensive Roleplay includes the following; sexual roleplay, which includes but is not limited to sex, rape and sexual touching of any kind; torture; dismemberment; other roleplay that may disgust another player, for example a graphic description of an injury. To do any of the roleplay listed above, it must be done with the OOC consent of all players involved prior to the roleplay being started. Offensive roleplay must be conducted away from other players and areas where players are likely to stumble across it. If an admin deems a location too public, it can be considered a breach of the rule. It is the responsibility of the players participating in the offensive roleplay to try to keep it away from players that may be uncomfortable with witnessing it. Players knowingly entering an area where offensive roleplay is occurring are assumed to have consented for the purposes of this rule. An example would be entering a strip club or a location where they know a character is being tortured. If a player is uncomfortable with the roleplay and they are a participant, they may request that it stops at any time. If a player witnesses offensive roleplay and they do not wish to see it, they may remove themselves from the scene. Examples: participating in sexual roleplay at a public swimming pool; torturing a player without making sure they are fine with participating in that kind of roleplay; initiating rape roleplay without receiving clear OOC consent from all players involved. The following types of roleplay are not allowed to happen on the server at all: cannibalism; bestiality; necrophilia; paedophilia. 10) Robbing and Scamming It is only permitted to rob another player for a maximum of $5,000. It is only permitted to scam another player for a maximum of $75,000. It is not allowed to scam properties. These include and are limited to vehicles and real estate. There are no limitations on drug and weapon scams, or on loans (a namechange / CK during an active loan will lead to your money being removed and given back to the loan contract owner). This applies to both scamming a player for a drugs or weapons and for scamming a player for money off a drug or weapon scam. Before performing a business robbery (entering a nightclub to rob everyone) you must notify the administration team with a /report and wait for their acknowledgment, as we do not want these to happen on a regular basis and it must be very well roleplayed. Ramming players just to rob them is considered non roleplay, as It is not realistic. When selling a house which is linked to a garage, you must also sell the garage to the house's buyer. Chaining robberies on your character unless perfectly roleplayed will be considered unrealistic and a poor portrayal of a character, so be careful If you choose to go that way. You may use /breakin to rob any property. Usage of /rent to access the inventory is forbidden and bannable. E.G. You rob a player and force them to pay you more money than the maximum of $5,000. You scam a player for their vehicle. 11) Property Destruction Destroying another player's property requires approval from an in-game administrator. This only applies to real estate such as apartments, houses and businesses. E.G. Setting a house on fire without the approval from an administrator. 12) Crime-free Areas It is not permitted to commit crimes or to provoke players within crime free areas. However it is allowed to continue the crime if the roleplay was initiated somewhere else. Crime free areas include the following locations: Government buildings (such as police and fire stations, the prison and city hall). Banks (ATM's not included) Airport Customization feature (the player is considered INSIDE the building) Ammunation area E.G. Robbing a player at a bank. 13) Abusing a Purchase Firearm License (PF License) Admins stay out of the way of the distribution of legal firearms or ammunition unless one of the following happens: a player makes a character just to sell PF weapons, but does nothing else on that character; a member of an illegal organization uses PF weapons to supply their group rather than making IC contacts for illegal weapons; the sale of PF weapons (or weapons in general) has OOC involvement, rather than being a strictly IC process. 14) Real World Trading / OOC Asset Transfers Real World Trading is defined as trading anything with value outside of the IC environment in-game for anything of value in-game. This is not allowed under any circumstances. Trading anything in-game requires IC reasoning to match the value and importance of the item being traded. Trading items without enough IC reasoning is considered a breach of the rules. Selling firearms without establishing a proper IC relationship, giving cars away without strong IC reasons and selling a property for less money to an OOC friend are a few of the many examples this rule can be broken. You may not transfer anything between any of your characters without an approved asset transfer request. The forum to request approval can be found by clicking HERE. The same format can be used to if a friend wants to give money to help with a roleplay project when the character giving the money does not have a strong enough IC reason to do so. Anyone that provides assistance to another community members breaching this rule will also be punished. Mappers can be contacted OOC for mapping projects and paid IC money for the projects. This is the one exception to the rule as the logistics behind organizing a full interior change IC (which would require a design company, a construction company with electricians, plumbers etc.) is too large for a simple task such as mapping. E.G. Using donator features to make IC money (furniture slots and /bad are exceptions and are allowed); Trading items that have value in real life, or items on another roleplay community or platform in return for items of value on GTA World; Giving assets or money away because you're name changing, CKing or leaving the server; Paying real money for GTA World money; Transferring stockpiled weapons to a friend to help start their new faction; Transferring money from one of your characters to another; Setting up trades for OOC transfers to appear legitimate via IC means (i.e. a fake deal). 15) Scrolling Weapons It is not allowed to scroll weapons without roleplay with the exception of the following weapons: Small melee weapons (Knife, Hammer, Bottle, Dagger, KnuckleDuster, SwitchBlade, Flashlight) Small handguns (Pistol, CombatPistol, Pistol50, SNSPistol, HeavyPistol, VintagePistol, Revolver, APPistol, StunGun, FlareGun) Small thrown weapons (Grenade, SmokeGrenade, BZGas, Molotov, Flare) Other small guns (MachinePistol, MiniSMG) E.G. Player scrolls an assault rifle. 16) Business rules Factions may not own/lease more than 2 scripted business, with a maximum of 1 per type. These businesses include: Factory Garage Clothing Store Barbershop Tattoo parlor Plastic surgeon Ammunation Gas station You may not trade back any of the money received from the script to the buyer. Example: Advertising 10% off on weapons in your ammunation, and give back 10% using 50% of the money you received in your business when the player bought the weapon. 17) Advertisement Rules The advertisement system is there to assist in the creation of roleplay, and assist in the trade of assets and services. Illegal advertisements are not allowed even if the intent behind them is hidden or attempted to be hidden IC. Players are expected to use other IC methods to distribute illegal items or services. Gambling and card games may only be advertised by businesses that have the licensing to host these games. Private games may be organized using other methods. Regular advertisements (/ad) is for general advertisements that are not associated with businesses or companies. The following are considered acceptable examples of using /ad: buying and selling of properties, businesses, vehicles or items of value; advertisement of events that are not associated with a business or company; advertisement of legal services. You may NOT use /ad for the following under any circumstances; looking for work ads, which can be put on the forums; ads looking for roommates; illegal advertisements of any kind; ads selling or buying legal firearms or other legal weapons outside of a licensed business; asking for rides; making requests; asking questions. Company ads (/cad) are used by companies to advertise recruitment, events, when the companies are opening their businesses and other things associated with companies. Business ads (/bad) are a feature for donators used to place a blip on the map to mark a business that is currently open. /bad should only be used for this purpose. You must pick one type of advertisement (/ad, /cad or /bad) and stick to it. Players may not use other advertisement types to get around the scripted cooldown. Players also may not use other players to avoid cooldowns. Advertisements must not be spammed. Players are expected to be courteous when advertising. Posting several ads for the same business in a short period of time is considered a breach of this rule. When advertising, ads must only use fully in-character terms. Selling cars that are "maxed out", or using similar terms such as fully upgraded or decked out, is considered to be a breach of this rule. You should describe it in a proper IC way rather than using "maxed out" to tell other players that it cannot be upgraded any further by the script. For properties, default interiors and fully mapped interiors should not be advertised differently. A singleplayer or GTA Online interior that is furnished is still considered furnished. Adding additional objects to one of those interiors or making an interior from scratch should not be the factor to determine if something is furnished or not when advertising. Examples of breaking the rule: making an advertisement to purchase firearms; advertising the sale of knives or lock picks when the person selling does not have a licensed business to do so; advertising the selling of marijuana; making an advertisement looking for a date or along the lines of "a fun time"; making an ad about looking for an eagle from the desert, implying you're looking for a Desert Eagle; advertising the search of a hitman to take someone out. 18) Jail Rules The purpose of the Jail Rules are to ensure that a more realistic and fair environment can be created within the jail. Secluded Areas, CCTV Coverage, and Count Time A secluded area is any area of the jail not covered 24/7 by CCTV or deputies. These locations are the interior of cells, alcoves, nooks, crannies, and corners of rooms. If an event occurs which deputies would feasibly witness, inmates should use /jevent to alert deputies. The jail is manned 24/7 by custody deputies on an in-character basis who watch every cellblock and patrol inmate-access areas. This cannot always feasibly be represented in-game, but if your character is in jail, they are being watched by deputies on closed-circuit television and through one-way windows. Inmates must roleplay this appropriately. The entire exterior perimeter is monitored 24/7 by closed-circuit television cameras and deputies within watch towers, guard posts, and beyond. Authorized prison gangs are permitted to conduct jump-ins, killings, checks, and other illicit activities within secluded areas provided they use the /jevent command to alert deputies if it would feasibly be noticed. In certain circumstances, it is permissible for these to spill out into public areas (such as an inmate attempting to flee from their own death). When this happens, the prison gang responsible should alert deputies on Discord so that a proper in-character response can be organized. If a response can not be organized within a reasonable timeframe, any roleplay concerning retaliation should be paused for 24 hours until a feasible IC response occurs. Count times are periodically conducted on an IC basis, so any inmate missing from their cell at a designated timeframe would be noticed. This necessitates players reporting through /jevent if their character would be missing at count time for whatever reason. (For instance, if they are deceased in a different cell, escaped with authorization, or are eluding custody.) Fear Rules Inmates must abide by realistic standards of fear. Jail is an environment where fear rules, if inmates are needlessly provoking other inmates, causing issues, or not portraying their character correctly within the environment, they are liable to be CK'd with admin permission or administratively punished. The average person would fear jail. NPC Roleplay - Mandatory Cases Any roleplayed usage of tear gas or pepper-spray by the Sheriff's Department must be roleplayed by inmates. Sheriff's deputies without gas masks or facial coverings must also roleplay the use in close quarters circumstances. /jrequest and /jevent Abuse of the /jrequest or /jevent command can result in a ban. Inmates should only use /jevent to alert deputies of information pertinent to their own characters. For instance, it is against the rules for an inmate to use /jevent to report that a rival prison gang is dealing drugs on the yard. Fight/Brawl/Riot/Killing Rules 1 on 1 fights between inmates are acceptable within a secluded setting so long as they do not lead to the death of an inmate and both parties mutually agree to the roleplay at any time. These fights should be fully roleplayed with /me's and avoid using the script. At any other time, any spontaneous fights between inmates must be accompanied by at least 3 custody deputies in-game - this means riots, killings, and beyond. Attacking a deputy requires a minimum of 4 deputies in-game, and a /jevent should be sent by the inmates conducting the attack if it is in a public area. If inmates gain control over a cellblock and have "knocked out" all in-game deputies, a /jevent should be sent by inmates to indicate their control. Escapes Jail escapes, or escapes from custody, must meet the following conditions: Three types of escape: Spontaneous - Unplanned, uncoordinated, based purely on opportunity. Planned - Coordinated, based on rigorous planning and exercise. Breakout - With assistance from exterior forces. Interior Escapes - A planned escape from the jail must be authorized by the administration team. Spontaneous escapes may be permissible dependent upon the condition of the jail, but this will be determined jointly by FM and Sheriff's Department leadership. Interior escapes may only be attempted if there are more than 10 deputies in-game. Planned escapes MUST, if accomplished, be accompanied by a /jevent by the escapee indicating their character was missed at count time, and if they were within the frame of CCTV tracking, also indicating how they escaped. Interior breakouts are ONLY permitted if assisted through a corrupt deputy, and only then with authorization by a level 4 administrator or above.

Interior breakouts are ONLY permitted if assisted through a corrupt deputy, and only then with authorization by a level 4 administrator or above. It is impossible to escape the jail with keys solely carried by custody deputies. On an in-character basis, keys carried by custody deputies solely access staff-only areas, but any exterior exit is operated manually through a CCTV control room. Exterior Escapes - (such as during a work program or community service event) must be authorized by the administration team and may happen spontaneously. A minimum of 5 custody deputies must be in-game to attempt an exterior escape. Breakouts must be authorized by level 4 admins and above and must be planned extensively through IC mediums and must not be done unrealistically - it is unlikely that a criminal organization would risk killing a large number of law enforcement officers, rather they may simply leave tools or escape materials at a location. Any death suffered during the escape attempt by inmates attempting or assisting the escape is automatically a character kill. After the escape is accomplished, the character is no longer at risk of being character killed. Obstructive Behavior Flooding a cellblock, setting fires, or feasibly altering the operation of the jail requires at minimum 4 deputies to be in-game. Trespassing - Exterior and Staff-Only Areas Characters trespassing on jail property requires permission from the administration team. Characters entering a staff-only area also requires the permission of the administration team. Due to CCTV monitoring, a /jevent must be sent to indicate a trespasser is within the jail perimeter or secure access area. A minimum of 4 custody deputies must be in-game. Smuggling On an IC basis, all characters are thoroughly strip searched prior to being admitted into the facility. However, characters may smuggle items into the jail at their own risk if they roleplay hiding it on their person through the use of screenshots. A player does not require permission to smuggle any items into the jail system outside of egregious materials, such as firearms, explosives, or escape material. Smuggled items may also be "stashed" with screenshot evidence to indicate items on a character are actually elsewhere. GTA World Administration
