DankRP Rules

Recommended Posts

Rules update 05/12/19
 
New Rules:
Section 7
 
 
 
All users who join must follow these rules or face punishment in the form of a jail, kick, or ban. Attempting to find loopholes in the rules that allow you to break a rule will only worsen your punishment, as well say saying “I didn’t know it was a rule."
 
 
For all staff: You MUST know these rules. Asking about rules is fine when you’re new to the team, however if you’ve been a full Moderator for a few weeks and you still ask about simple rules, you may be demoted or be considered for demotion.
 
 

Staff punishments will be in Red text.

Common DarkRP Terms

OOC - Out Of Character.
NLR - New Life Rule
FDA - Fading Door Abuse
LTAP - Leaving To Avoid Punishment


RDM: RDM, as will be explained in Section 1, is the act of starting a Random Death Match with a player without valid RP reasons. This includes kills made in Death Pits and Purges (which if a staff member starts a purge, please report it and whoever joined in to us), etc.


NLR: NLR only applies to raids so no one can go back and kill raiders or so raiders can not come back and kill defenders after death. If you are killed in the street, you may go back. If you are killed while raiding, do not go anywhere near the base, even to watch.



Metagaming: This is when you use knowledge known to the user but not to the RP character to gain an advantage. No one has name tags or job tags above their heads in real life, so you may not assume a Meth Cook has meth in their base, even if their job is “Meth Cook”.

 

Minging - Purposely being an annoyance to others through audio or visual techniques that may discomfort and/or distress a player. As well as minging through annoying acts such as excessively damaging someone repeatedly.

 

Failure to Advert/Failure to Wait Advert Cooldown : Advert cooldown varies per scenario, i.e. Raiding cooldown is 10 minutes, but kidnap cooldown is 5 minutes. If you fail to wait advert cooldown (FWCD), you will be punished with a 300 second jail + 60 seconds for each person you had killed.

 

Section 1 - General Rules

 

Random Death Match (RDM) and Random Arrest (RDA) are not allowed and will be punished with a 300 second jail and warn. If you RDA you will be demoted (rp_citizen <player name>) from your job. If you Mass RDM’d or Mass RDA it will be extended to a week ban.

 

Leaving to avoid punishment (LTAP) is punishable by a 3 day ban.

 

Adverting crossfire is admitting to RDM and if in a sit will be punished as such.

 

Any form of Prop Minge (spamming, flinging around, moving prop while it is stuck to make players screen shake, etc.) is not allowed and will be punished with a warn, and if you continue, a kick and then a day ban.

 

Excessive DDoS threats will result in you being permanently banned from the server.

 

Attempting to crash the server by any means will result in you being permanently banned from DankRP.

 

Exploitation of props, entities, or any ingame bug or defect is punishable.

There is a list of what is bannable in Section 6.

 

Absolutely no racial slurs will be tolerated. First offense will be a mute/gag for five minutes and if excessive racism continues, you will be banned for a day

 

Using loopholes in the rules to avoid punishment is UNACCEPTABLE. If you find any loopholes please post them in #suggestion on Discord (https://discord.gg/B7V7n8w) for them to be fixed! If you try to abuse a loophole you will be banned for two weeks.

 

Making zones for deathmatch or purges will result in a Verbal Warn then 1 week ban.

 

Building in spawn tunnels is not allowed by any class and doing so intentionally will result in permanent ban.

 

You may not have a KOS sign or line unless you have a shop and don’t want past certain area(s), or you have a megabase (see section 2a for details) if you have one you will be asked to remove it, and if you fail to comply the staff member will remove it.

 

Do not sell or advertise ingame items or money for real money. The only exception to this is if you are selling your Custom Class, or the ownership of your Custom Class.

 

Scamming people in any way is not allowed, if you do not return the items when confronted, you will be permanently banned.

 

Certain forms of harassment are NOT tolerated such as : Constant Targeting of another player such as by using Adverts or Hits to constantly harm them or Physical Harassment where it's ensured that the person is constantly not leaving you alone and just staying in proximity of you to just annoy/irritate you.

 

If you’re muted and you spam admin chat, you will be banned for 1 day.

 

All binds that are not related MUST have it’s own bind, i.e. Raid/Party Raid, PD raid, Counter, Warnings, and Over/False binds.

 

Offensive imagery related to race or religion is strictly prohibited. For example, Swastikas. You will first be verbally warned, and then you will be banned for a day if you continue.

 

Posting pictures and racial slurs in-game so that they show up in the in-game-chat channel in Discord or in the in-game chat to be viewed in the server is strictly prohibited and will result in a one day ban for minging.

 

You may not use any font larger than the default one in chat. You will be muted for 5 minutes > Kicked > 1 day ban.

 




                                       Section 1a - Sit rules
 

Be specific when calling sits, not just “Admin to me!” or “RDM”. If you put detail into your report it is more likely to be noticed and taken by a staff member.

 

Spamming admin chat chat with useless sits, or asking non-game related questions will result in a 5 minute mute, and if done after that a 1 day ban.

 

If you leave your own sit, FOR ANY REASON, the case will be closed and the player in question will not be punished.

 

The accuser has to provide evidence that the other person broke the rules, not the defendant.

 

If the accuser wants defendant punished (and he/she broke the rule) staff reserve the right to reduce their jail time by up to 60 seconds (down to 240 seconds).

 

If the accuser calls a sit and didn’t want the person punished, the defendant will ALWAYS receive a warning, this is to keep up with players who actively break rules.

 

If the accuser does not want the defendant punish the staff member is still allowed to punish him as he/she sees fit.

 

Section 1b - Media Player Rules

 

You may play anything you want WHILE IN YOUR BASE.

 

In public, you may not play anything inappropriate (ear rape, NSFW, etc.)

 

Please exercise common sense when using Media Players in public (What would you NOT what people to see?, What would be too inappropriate for kids?, What would be breaking the rules?, etc.).

 

Note: As of the current build of Gmod the only way to use the media player is by changing your version of Gmod to the beta version (Chromium), Afterwards the media player should be working.

 

Section 1c - Staff Warnings

 

When you are warned by a staff member, you did something wrong. You will typically be jailed alongside a warn unless the person who made the report asks for just the warn.

 

A single warn will stay active for up to two hours.

If you get three (3) consecutive warns in a two hour period, the server automatically will kick you.

If you get five (5) consecutive warns in a two hour period, the server will automatically ban you for two hours.

 

The system logs your warns, so staff members are able to better judge a situation and deal appropriate punishment for constant rule breaking.

 

If you get too many warnings overall you will be dealt a different set of punishments.

 

If you get 20 total warns you will be banned for one (1) day.

If you get 45 total warns you will be banned for three (3) day.

If you get 60 total warns you will be banned for one (1) week.

If you get 75 total warns you will be banned for one (1) month.

If you somehow get 100 total warns you will PERMANENTLY banned.

 

Section 2 - Base Rules

 

You can have 3 fading doors

 

You may not have a Blackout Bases. This is a base that is made with one color with the intent to cause the raiding player to become distorted and unable to start or finish the raid if you have one you will be asked to fix it and the raid will continue, if you fail to do so the staff will delete portions of your base to allow the player to finish the raid..

 

You may not have maze bases.

 

You may not have a crouch, jump or parkour base.

 

You may not have a head glitch base.

 

You CANNOT have a kill box, i.e. having a base just for the pure intention of killing players via leaving your door open, offering free stuff and then killing them, etc. You will be punished the same as RDM, or even Mass RDM.

 

Skybases are allowed, but MUST have a clear way to get up and MUST follow all other basing rules. You may not have a Skybase for the pure intention of causing lag (via using materials that have constant moving/color changes. You may not have a fading door on your ramp, and you may not have trapped areas to the skybase.

 

One way props are allowed.

 

Buttons are allowed, but you are not allowed to use them for traps.

 

You may have a building sign to prevent you from being raided, kidnapped or mug while you are in your base. HOWEVER you may not have ANY money making entities (includes meth, opium, bitminers, bitracks, printers, etc.) in your base, EVEN IF THEY ARE NOT ACTIVELY MAKING MONEY!

 

You must also be building to have the building sign up (duh), leaving up building signs for a prolonged is UNACCEPTABLE.

 

Anyone basing with you must be added to ALL the doors or they will not be considered active residents of the base, meaning they are not allowed to defend the base unless they counter.

 

Anyone inside your base that you did not allow is KOS by default. HOWEVER, You may NOT have a base just just to wait for people to come in so you can kill them. This is considered a kill box.

 

ALL bases must be able to be lock picked AND keypad cracked or keycard hacked.

 

This means you CANNOT have two props stacked on top of eachother!

 

Builder rank is allowed to build anything, everywhere, as long as it is not breaking rules. This includes cars!

 

Section 2a - Megabase Rules

 

NOTICE: All rules from Section 2 apply to megabases, with some modifications (As seen below).

 

A megabase is when a party of SIX or MORE players block off a whole district (i.e. Industrial, Suburbs, etc.) via the tunnel.

 

All players in the party must be the owner of at least 1 door.

 

You cannot make a megabase in the Park (Area with only two bases and two trees on either side of the walled in area with benches), and Downtown (for obvious reasons)

 

If there are already bases where you want to megabase, you will either need the occupants to join your party and full access to the megabase, or buy their base from them. If they do not leave, then you MUST find a different place to megabase, as it will be considered prop block.

 

You may not block off the whole tunnel while megabasing, it has to either be at the end of the tunnel, or in the middle of the tunnel.

 

You are allowed to have up to SIX fading doors for your megabase entrance, PLUS three per base.

 

You may have a KoS sign/line in the middle of what is left of the tunnel.

 

Section 3 - PD Rules

 

Civil protection and the Mayor are allowed to build inside of PD to fortify/protect the mayor against raids. But it MUST follow all section 2 rules.

 

Civil protection and the Mayor may have bitminers and oil in the PD.

 

Civil protection may put bail to unarrest people, but the limit is two thousand.

 

Civil protection are not allowed to base, unless with the mayor to protect him.

 

You act according to the server rules and the laws made by the mayor, not what the mayor tells you to do.

 

Warrants may be placed upon a person if you cannot get access to them (i.e. they're hiding in a base). You may also re-issue warrants when leaving a base if the current warrant expires.

You actually have to see them break the law to place the warrant, failing to do so counts as Metagaming and will be punished as FailRP .

The Battering Ram should ONLY be used for making an entrance to the base, NOT unfreezing unnecessary props. Abuse / unnecessary overuse of the battering ram counts as FailRP





 

Section 3a - SWAT HQ Rules

 

MEGA BASE RULES APPLY!

You may not favor/disfavor specific groups or individuals with your laws (i.e. “Hobos are Illegal”, or “Micah is above the law”) this is restricted to “The Corrupt”. If caught doing so you will be asked to change the law, if you do not do so you will be demoted.

 

KoS laws are NOT allowed, using them will fall under RDM/Mass RDM for the Mayor and Individual(s) who broke the rules.

The Corrupt IS considered a Government/CP job.

 

You may invalidate laws made by the Mayor, as you are his main rival.

 

You are allowed to favor specific groups, or individuals (i.e. “Micah is above the law and cannot be arrested or killed” or “Hobos are above the law”). You are still not allowed to disfavor certain groups.

 

Section 4 - Party Rules

If someone damages your party member, you may kill that person. BUT you many only kill them if you see it, if you kill them without seeing it it will be considered “Metagaming” and will be punished like RDM.

CIVIL PROTECTION: Base | Megabase | Raid |Counter | Mug Revolt Kidnap | Carjack)

 

You protect the citizens of the city from crime. You do not need to call counter, as you are not vigilante. Megabase is in orange since SWAT HQ is a megabase ONLY for SWAT.

Exploits will result in a Verbal Warning the first time. If problem persists it will result in a week to two week ban. Any exploit that causes major visual or performance disadvantage to the player-base will result in a permanent ban.

 

Section 7 - Adverts and Rules

Your binds must be clear, you cannot put all binds into one, each advert listed below MUST have a seperate bind.  If you don't you will be jailed for 300 seconds + 60 seconds for each person killed.

We do not use any type of 'FearRP' rules in our server.

(Adverting anything inside a Safezone is considered FailRP.)

You cannot change your job during ANY advert, doing so counts as FailRP

 

What is an “Advert”?: An advert is a way of informing people of your actions through a global chat, these rules describe the basics of different adverts and a basic message you need to type when adverting ,but you may add personalized text to the advert (i.e. “/advert I’m gonna steal your corn (Raid)”,”/advert Give me 2k in 10 seconds or I still your corn (Mug)”, etc.)

 

Raid: “Raiding” is the act of breaking into another player’s base to steal or destroy money/entities. You must be outside of a players base to initiate a raid, and from there you may kill any player inside the base. Anyone assisting must do “/advert Assist”. Once all occupants are killed, you may only continue the raid for five minutes. The cooldown per individual raid is 10 minutes, raiding before then will be considered Failure to Wait Advert Cooldown. After raiding a base you may not raid the same base for another 15 minutes. The only time you may raid hobos if they have entities in their base. You must lockpick a door or destroy an entity inside the base to initiate the raid. You cannot raid someone with the intention to raid only for kills, this will be considered RDM.

We do not allow 'minge raiding'; this is raiding a base that clearly has nothing inside it, any kills will result in an RDM punishment.  

 

Mug: When mugging, you must advert your mug, i.e. “/advert MUG drop (amount) in 10 seconds or die”. After the advert, you MUST verbally alert the user that you are mugging them. The maximum amount you are allowed to mug a player is 2 thousand. If you do not give them proper time to comply, i.e. you kill them before 10 seconds it will be considered RDM and treated as such. You must wait 5 minutes between each mug, not doing so will be considered Failure to Wait Advert Cooldown.

 

Revolt: Fed up with the Mayor? Do a revolt and kill him! You must have a valid reason to revolt such as laws, Mayor not doing his job, or corrupt government. The basic advert for a revolt would be “/advert Revolt, [insert reason here]”. When revolting you are allowed to lockpick / keypad crack any doors in the PD to gain access to the mayor, you can also kill any police that are inside the PD. You must wait 15 minutes in between each revolt, not doing so will be considered Failure to Wait Advert Cooldown.

 

Bank Raid: The same as a regular raid, however, you must make it clear that it is a Bank Raid and not a regular raid in your advert. There must be at least two police and a Mayor/Corrupt on for a Bank Raid to occur.  NLR Applies to all Civil Protection killed at the Bank. You must wait 15 minutes in-between each Bank Raid, not doing so will be considered Failure to Wait Advert Cooldown.

 

Jailbreak (PARTY ONLY): If your party member is arrested, and your current class has an unarrest baton, you may do “/advert Jailbreak” and free them. You many only kill cops who are in PD during this period, and must wait 10 minutes inbetween each Jailbreak, not doing so will be considered Failure to Wait Advert Cooldown.

 

Counter: The counter advert allows you to stop crimes in the street that you have personally seen. This can be a mug, a raid, a kidnap, or any other adverted criminal acts. Doing “/advert Counter” allows you to stop these crimes and has no cooldown (crime never sleeps, so why should you?). 

 

Warn: If someone is harassing you, and not leaving you alone you can do “/advert Warn 1/2/3” three times in a row, three seconds a part (9 seconds in total). You MUST have a valid RP reason to do this, you cannot go into crowds or up to random players and do this to get free kills. You cannot kill the person warning you, it will be considered RDM. Abusing warns will result in a 1 day ban for No Intent to Role Play.

 

Kidnap: To advert kidnap, you advert by doing “/advert Kidnap”. You can only hold a prisoner for up to 10 minutes, and you must wait 5 minutes between each kidnap, not doing so will be considered Failure to Wait Advert Cooldown. You can charge up to 10k in ransom for a player to get released. YOU MAY NOT TIE A VICTIM ON THE SKYBOX OR ANYWHERE HIGH. THEY MUST BE ABLE TO BE EASILY FREED BY ANYONE COUNTERING!

 

Satan is here: When doing /advert Satan is here, you are allowed to kill one player in your area and must wait 10 minutes inbetween adverts. Not doing so will be considered Failure to Wait Advert Cooldown.

 

Carjack: When performing /advert Carjack you are permitted to steal the car so long as you have the lockpick to do so, but this does NOT mean you are allowed to KOS the Owner after you have started the Carjack. You must wait 15 minutes per Carjack, not doing so will be considered Failure to Wait Advert Cooldown.

 

For continued and further explanation of the rules and punishments for the server It's highly recommend taking a look at the official punishments and explanations for the rules below.

 

 

 

.

 

 

 

Section 8: Wardrobe Rules

Section 8b: Atags/Title Rules

                      Section 9: Specific Weapon Rules

With the exploiting and loopholing of certain weapons comes the formal use of the new section "Section 9: Specific Weapon Rules". It is used for key rules that stop players from behaving to the extent of using them for just causing chaos or straying from the weapons original intended use.

 

  • The C4 SWEP is only allowed to be used during raids
  • You are NOT allowed to use the Broom Vehicle to exploit into bases or admin land.
  • The bludgeon is only to be used for kidnapping. You may not knock random people out in the street with no intention of bringing them back to your base.
