Do not Scam. Do not ARDM. Do not RDM. Do not LTAP. Do not RDA. Do not break NLR. Do not be a Minge. Do not Metagame. Do not Wallbang. Do not FailRP.

Advert Rules: If you are adverting an event, it must be in parenthesis if you have some other kind of text involved [Ex: [Advert] Rudy: This is a (Raid) and it’s (KOS if near)]. You cannot have multiple events in one bind (Ex: “[Advert] Rudy: Raid / Mug / Assist” or “[Advert] Rudy: Over/False”). In order to raid the police department/bank, you must advert “PD Raid” or “Bank Raid”. When warning someone, you must have a valid RP reason to warn them. When warning a player, you must wait 5 seconds in between each warns, and there must be 3 warns in order for you to kill the player. You can use a bind like “[Advert] Rudy: Warn 1/2/3” three times so you don’t have to keep typing different warns. The person you are warning must know you are warning them. You have to advert “over” or “false” for raiding, mugging, counter, and similar events. Mugging Rules: In order to begin a mug, you must advert “mug” followed by the amount needed to drop (Ex. [Advert] Rudy: Mug drop 2k in 10 seconds or die). The maximum mugging amount is 10,000. The person you are mugging MUST know they are being mugged. You must wait 10 minutes before you can mug someone again, and 15 minutes to mug the same person again. Mugs can have special rules like “KOS if running away” or “KOS if you ask for help” but must be included in the advert. Do not abuse this. You must give the person being mugged at least 10 seconds to react (after they know they are being mugged) before you can kill them; Special rules being an exception. You cannot pull any kind of weapon out if you are being mugged. You cannot mug someone if they are holding any kind of weapon. KOS signs/lines Rules: KOS lines are allowed to an extent. They cannot intrude a way out of spawn or a way to someone’s base, and cannot go past the sidewalk of your location (Staff can help you with this). KOS signs cannot be small, and everyone should be able to see them. (Use common sense) KOS signs must have a valid RP KOS reason behind them. They cannot have things like “KOS all reasons” or “KOS if loitering” or “KOS if annoying” or “KOS if cop” or “KOS if busy hit or has a hit”. No "KOS IF SWIMMING NEAR" or anything like that. Gang Rules: You must be a job that can raid to claim points. (Ex. Thief / Marauder / etc) To claim a point you must advert capture point. If another gang goes onto the capture point zone, you may kill them. Party Rules: You may KOS anyone who is raiding, mugging and/or damaging a party member. You may KOS anyone who is breaking your party members’ sign(s). You may enforce your party members KOS sign/line. Your party members can have each other's own separate base, however, you may not be based on both of them at once. You may not betray someone in your party (Ex. You join a party to get their codes. You go into their base, leave their party, and destroy everything.) Building Rules: Whilst building, you cannot have ANY entities in your base. You may have a building sign in order to prevent people from bothering you. You may not bother anyone that has a building sign. You may only have 1 base. Only roofs with a buyable door / ladder / stairs may be used to base on. You may not have a skybase. You may not have crouch bases. You may not have trap bases. You may not build in the mining area. You may not have areas where people are allowed to break rules freely (Like a RDM zone, fight club, cage fight, etc.). You may only have 3 doors for the main entrance to your base, and 4 spare for anything else (Ex. Another room, Printer case, etc.). Windows/Holes used to shoot players through may not be smaller than 1.5 blocks (Staff/Experienced Players can explain). You may not have head/foot traps in your base. Players must be able to enter/exit your base using a keypad cracker and/or lockpick. Keypad length must be at least 5 seconds, and cannot have an initial delay. Cameras may not be invisible, and should be no-collided. The only props that may be invisible are props that can be shot through (Fence props), but they have to be no-collided. Anybody must be able to get inside of your base. Tunnel End and Maze bases are allowed. Bases may not be black. Bases may not have fake/hidden keypads (All keypads must be visible). You may not have a base underwater. You may not build around gang points to have them in your base. Mega Base Building Rules: In order to Mega Base, you must meet the following requirements: Have 5 people in your party that can base. Have a staff member’s permission to use the area. (T-Mod and up) Own every door within the area you are Mega Basing (Do this AFTER you get permission, THEN start building.) You may not Mega Base near/in spawn tunnels. Mega bases must follow all building/basing rules except for rule #11 in building rules. Rule #11 Substitution: You may only have 3 doors for the main entrance, and an extra 4 for anything else. You may also make other bases (for each player) INSIDE the Mega Base. These “separate” bases may only have 3 doors for the main entrance, and 4 extra for anything else. You may not have people from different parties basing inside your Mega Base. Basing Rules: You may not shoot through one-ways. You may not shoot through holes smaller than the the limit given (read "Building Rules: Rule #12"). You may not use anything in your tool/physical gun on your main entrance whilst basing (Ex: No-colliding a prop to get through a wall / using “color” excessively) Both raider and defender must be able to see each other when they are shooting each other. You may not shoot through props/windows that only certain guns can shoot through. You may not use binds to open fading doors if you are in a RP situation or are being raided (Buttons/Keypads are the substitute for this). If you die whilst being raided, you must wait for everyone raiding you to advert “over”. And while you wait, you must stay very far from your base (Staff will decide if you were too close). You may not use a no-collided prop to defend yourself from any kind of damage. Raiding Rules: You must advert raid. You may not begin raiding until you advert “raid” or “assist”. Raiding can only last 20 minutes. You may not raid hobos. You must wait 10 minutes before raiding again (Timer starts when you advert “Over”). You must wait 15 minutes before raiding the same person again (Timer starts when you advert “Over”) You may not raid people just to kill them. It must be for a valid RP reason. Bank raids and PD Raids still fall within the raid category, so you still have to wait 10 minutes to raid after calling over for them. Using codes to raid is considered FailRP/Metagaming. You may not advert “Party Raid” you have to either be the one to advert “Raid” or advert “Assist”. Stealing Rules: You must advert steal. You may/can steal any entity. (Money, Tip Jars, etc.) You do not have to wait a timer to advert steal again. If you kill someone, whatever they drop, is obviously yours. You may KOS anyone who is stealing your stuff (Abusing this rule will result in a warn). Counter Rules: You must advert counter. You can counter any event, however it must fall within your role. To clarify, you cannot counter a raid if your role cannot raid. The only exception to Rule #2 is if the person is kidnapping a party member. You must wait 5 minutes in between each counter (Timer starts when you advert “Over”). Government Rules: These rules only apply if you are a government job. You may only base in the Police Department. You may only weapon check people if they are in the Police Department, or by having them advert saying they allow you to do so. You must follow the laws of the president. The only exception to this is if the law is against the rules. You may not baton rush. The front doors of the PD/Bank may not be locked unless there is a lockdown. You may only arrest people for breaking the Default Laws / laws placed by the president. You may break NLR during PD Raids, and only PD raids. It is AOS past the second door of the PD, but you may add KOS as well in the laws and/or text screen sign. You may KOS / AOS anyone who is in the back of the bank. You may be corrupt, but you can be /demoted for it. Job Specific/Specific Rules: Gun Dealers - You may only self-supply if there are no gun dealers on and/or they are AFK. You have to have a gun shop, but you can still have printers, bitminers, etc. You may make portable gun shops, but only if they are not disrupting to other players (Staff will decide). Hobos - You may build on the streets. You may not base in buildings/bases You may not build on sidewalks next to people's bases. You may not have any printers, bitminers, or oil drillers. You may not have any guns / weapons. Knives being the only exception. You may only build small homes or structures. They cannot be gigantic bases (Staff will decide). You may have a megabase as long as it fits the requirements. President Obama - Commands: “/placelaws” - places the law board.
