  1. Edit to reflect changes made within FM to try and combat the PF abuse we have seen as of late. If you now wish to use PF weapons for other means, contact the FM Team through the link above with a reasoning. Edited in regards to rape roleplay to avoid possible scenarios in-game happening when we do not allow this type of roleplay to begin with.
  2. NOTE: Due to the changes with weapons following a recent game update, IFM will now leave the weapon specialists' role open. This will remain open until we feel we got a sufficient amount of people covering this role - as this is now way more required than it was before. Best of luck to any applicants. NOTE #2: Tobacco supplier will no longer count as a minor or major supplier role for factions, and can be held without limiting the faction slots.
  3. Updated in regards to FM's involvement in arsons.
  4. Congratulations to the promoted ones.
  5. @[email protected]@LennyBE This was added in refernce to the above after a discussion. Thanks for bringing it up as well.
  6. 15) Scrolling Weapons It is allowed to scroll weapons without roleplay for the following weapons & situations: Small melee weapons. (Knife, Hammer, Bottle, Dagger, KnuckleDuster, SwitchBlade, Flashlight) Small handguns. (Pistol, CombatPistol, Pistol50, SNSPistol, HeavyPistol, VintagePistol, Revolver, APPistol, StunGun, FlareGun, Glock, Sig Sauer, M&P 9 Pistols.) Small thrown weapons. (Grenade, SmokeGrenade, BZGas, Molotov, Flare) Other small guns that can be concealed easier on your body. (MachinePistol, MiniSMG, MicroSMG) If you're actively being the target of shots in a firefight, pursuit, driveby, or the like, you may directly scroll your weapon without writing out the required /me roleplay line. It is not allowed to scroll weapons without roleplay for the following weapons and situations: Larger melee weapons that would be harder to conceal on your body. (Machete, Fire Axe, Crowbar, Battle Axe, Hatchet, Golf Club) Scrolling a gun in a vehicle will require roleplay regardless of the weapon, this due to the lack of animations in these situations. Larger caliber and sized weapons such as rifles and shotguns will require roleplay before being scrolled. (PumpShotgun, SawnOffShotgun, DoubleBarrelShotgun, Musket/HuntingRifle, CompactRifle, Assault-/CarbineRifle, SMG, SMGMk2, CarbineRifleMk2 etc.) E.G. Player scrolls a Compact Rifle without roleplay in any situation. Player scrolls a Pistol50 while in a vehicle as either the driver or passenger.
  7. You have to type the line out and then scroll the weapon, yes. Yes, anytime you're in a vehicle you should roleplay scrolling the weapon. As do the ones you're pursuing.
  8. 15) Scrolling Weapons It is not allowed to scroll weapons without roleplay with the exception of the following weapons: It is allowed to scroll weapons without roleplay for the following weapons: Small melee weapons.

  9. IFM Approved Properties - Information What is an IFM approved property? An IFM approved property will be a property that benefits your faction specifically. It is never going to be a general business or a house specific for one individual member of your faction. Examples of this will be listed below: A trap house for a gang. A chop shop (these are currently capped at 7 maximum at any one time.) Requires 3 months minimum as an approved faction. A specific business for your faction. A faction clubhouse for an MC. A scheme related property. Requires an active scheme where said building is key for it to properly function. Who can apply for an IFM related property? Where do I do it? Any faction that has been approved as an official faction (this means groups are ineligible for this procedure), can apply for a property. You just need to provide a reasoning, a location, and a backstory for your faction as to why this should happen. This should preferably be a mixture of OOC and IC, as we want reasoning for both of these in the application. You'll find a format below. The topic gets posted in https://forum.gta.world/en/forum/844-ifm-requests-reports/ where it'll be taken further on for a review and vote within the IFM team. Chop shops? Chop shops are granted for longer-standing factions that have proven to provide the server with the roleplay and standards IFM wishes to see from factions. We currently cap these at 7 actives at any one time. This allows for more interaction between factions in terms of this type of roleplay. The chop shops are under the strict rule as well, components will be set at 1 and they will NEVER be used to modify vehicles, they are there as chop shops and not mechanic garages. The 1 component allows them to function scriptwise. Anyone caught abusing this will be punished and the chop shop may be revoked from the faction. Format If your property gets accepted, you will likely have to file coordinates and all of this again on the UCP or we will set up a proper lease for your faction. We will however guide you through that process, to avoid having to apply twice and wait longer than the initial wait. The properties that get granted by IFM will be set up as leases, and can therefore not be sold on. Any transfer of a faction property to another member MUST go through IFM leadership to be given approval for. This is to avoid name changes and properties being kept through multiple characters this way as well. Should your faction close (regardless of reasoning) - you are required to inform IFM that you have an approved property that should be taken away again. IFM will not provide an unlimited amount of properties for a faction, it'll very likely be just one or two based on the reasoning. IFM holds full rights to shut down and take the property away if any abuse is found at all. We will work actively alongside PM in order to make sure the best outcome is met for requests we approve, and some adjustments may be made based on existing properties in the area.
  10. OK, good. I am glad we got to this point then and clarified a few things. Now before this flies off topic further and goes beyond whatever this was used for, I'm gonna lock it and leave it there. I think we addressed the issues and got to a point where we can agree on what goes on as well as the procedure for handling these things - which always was there. We don't need to carry this on, but my PMs are always open for these things.
  11. The way you spoke of the team and portrayed it really put that in a different manner, and I'm sure you'll understand that if you read back as well. Requirements land on both quality and continuity within the server. As stated above - if there's disagreements or legit concerns, there are ways to appeal it as well. Which involves the management of the server. This is stated in the same thread. I ask that you please report this, faction reports. Sitting here and complaining about the team when no reports are filed is just a little beyond to me. Sometimes people have excuses, a busy life or whatnot - yes. But when you report or reach out to us, we generally respond and take things seriously here. I don't know why you believe we wouldn't and what sort of stories have been fed to you - but I respond to every single forum PM I get, and they pile up to quite a few a day. But please use the right channels, they are all there for you to go through. Don't post these comments on threads and expect us to then side with you on it, just go through the correct process is all I ask.
  12. If that's the main problem, which I have never thought would be one - it's a simple solution to it. Most people message me or management if they disagree with a decision made within IFM, and we look at it. It says in this thread; That you message management here, I usually get added and should be there - as I don't personally vote on all submissions anymore, just so I can be a final say on an appeal as well. But I'll add my own name to the list as well, and I recommend people follow through with these PMs if they got legitimate concerns.
  13. That's a very bold comment based on your time spent here and the knowledge you seemingly sit on, but sure - you're free to have an opinion. I just believe this is a very ill-informed and quite insulting one to have regarding a team that works so hard to provide decent illegal RP and opportunities for the server. The IFM team works tirelessly day in and day out with requests and reports, as well as these pending factions to assure the server works, and that statement is quite insulting to throw out there when you seem to have little idea what you're talking about. But I'll address your points. Hearing stories and rumors doesn't mean something is true, and carrying these on with no evidence is a little over the top to me. Did you get evidence of these things? Feel free to report it to me and Notbond and it'll be looked at like any other staff report. We are not blind to the fact things happen - but it has to be reported. Rumors regarding some supposed 'horror story' don't sit right with me, but feel free to report it. Calling IFM a cess-pit is again rather silly, but I'll let it be. Regarding these two factions, you can complain internally to us if you got specific concerns regarding a faction. I don't think you were part of the PMs I had with Agani as well as recent discussions after their original denial. So sitting here complaining on their behalf makes little sense to me. You do not know the details, you do not know the agreements we came to. They did the right thing, came to me with their reasoning and their concerns after a denial - we had a conversation about it and reached an agreement. If you feel a faction is not up to par with what the standards should be in your eyes - feel free to report them instead of posting supposed satire or what can be deemed toxic comments on their thread. Admins will receive these forum reports and deal with them, whether it's an IFM admin or a regular admin means little to nothing, your comments should not be on a thread like that, it's not the place to complain or make fun of. You're not the first and will not be the last that has this happen to them. I can understand the frustration and opinionated statements, but put them in the right place, please. Also as I see it's mentioned quite a few times or at least insinuated in places. Factions do NOT need to be an unofficial group before they apply to be a faction. You can apply without a group thread, this is stated many places.
  14. Added in a section to the original application. This is to avoid throwaway characters and essentially random hitmen with little to no character development performing accepted CK's.
