Rules

This policy applies to AboveInfinity's Roleplay Game and Discord server

AboveInfinity's Roleplay is a heavy voice roleplay server which to us means our staff enforces being in-character at all times and enforce all forms of roleplay to keep every players story meaningful.


  ACCOUNT OWNERSHIP AND RESPONSIBLITY

  Account ownership is non-transferable and is property of the creator.

  All players are responsible for their account, IP address, social club, and hardware. Linked accounts will face the same punishments and cannot be unlinked.

  Players must not trade their accounts for money or valuables.

  CHARACTER CREATION AND PROPERTY

  Character names must be realistic and resemble real world names.

  Character names cannot be names of famous people.

  Players may not scam or deceive other players out of character for their property.

  Players may not transfer assets to other players or to other characters they own without proper IC reason. Doing so will be treated as Real World Trading (RWT). Exceptions may be made with approval from a member of Staff.

  HARASSMENT AND KNOWLEDGE OF RULE BREACHES

  It is prohibited to leak personal information of another person or to make such threats.

  It is prohibited to intimidate players from playing on the server or to continuously harass them in the game for OOC reasons to purposely make their game experience poor.

  Players must report cases of ban evasion, falsified forum reports, discussion of or jokes about cyber-attacks and other rule breaches. An attempt to hide such information is punishable.

  HACKING, GLITCHES AND BUG EXPLOITS

  Players must not have mods, trainers or any kind of software installed that gives any advantage.

  Server bugs/glitches may not be used for advantage and must be reported to Staff via Discord ( Join here if not already a member ).

  ADVERTISING AND PUBLIC CHAT

  It is prohibited to advertise or discuss other GTA V multiplayer communities on any AboveInfinity service/platform including self created content promoted on such platforms (ingame, website, discord, etc).

  All players must be able to communicate in English and IC chat must be English only.

  Foreign language in-character must be done as such: "[Language] English Text".

  Other languages may be used in private only if everyone who can see has agreed to it.

  Players may use profanity (swearing, cussing) in IC chat for roleplay, but not excessively.

  Players must not use offensive/derogatory language in any circumstances.

  Global announcements must only contain IC content and must not be offensive (IC or OOC).

  Global announcements cannot be used to advertise illegal merchandise or activities.

  Global announcements made by players must be realistic and are considered advertisements.

  IC AND OOC INTERACTIONS

  Players are required to remain in-character (IC) at all times.

  Text chat, VOIP, radio, phone and commands like /ME and /do are to be used only for IC content.

  IC content must not contain acronyms like "lol" or "u" or smiley faces excluding IC SMS.

  For OOC content, players must use chat commands that encase the content in brackets. For example: (( this is OOC content )). OOC chat commands are /OOC.

  OOC videos or screenshots can be used as IC evidence only if the footage contains the character using the /RECORD command to hold a phone in their hand.

  Property interiors can have cameras only if the owner roleplays installation and takes time stamped screenshots with the camera angle as evidence. Exteriors only if there is an object.

  You may roleplay a hidden camera, wire, or dash cam in a vehicle if recordings are unedited and include roleplay starting and ending. Attempts to search must be answered truthfully in /do.

  Sexual, torture, or extremely gross roleplay is allowed only if all involved parties (participants and witnesses) have agreed to it in OOC text chat, prior to the actual roleplay being performed.

  Only Staff members are allowed force pause RP or investigate rule breaches.

  Only Staff members are allowed to void roleplay scenarios at their discretion.

  Players are welcome to voice their opinion but should never disobey Staff.

  A /REPORT does not pause roleplay unless a member of Staff does so.

  NO CRIME ZONES (NCZ)

  A no crime zone is an area where players may not commit any actions considered crimes.

  Players must not disobey orders of law enforcement officers but are allowed to flee.

  If a player uses the NCZ for protection the attacker must wait for that player to leave the area.

  Players may not go to a NCZ after engaging in criminal activity resulting in an ongoing chase.

  NO CRIME ZONES:

  •   All government offices, law enforcement offices, hospitals, and the blocks around them.

  NON-ROLEPLAY (NRP)

  Actions that are unrealistic or promote poor quality roleplay are considered as non-roleplay.

  Examples of actions that are considered as non-roleplay:

  •   Cop Baiting - Provoking a reaction from emergency services without a realistic reason.
  •   Mercy Killing - Asking to be killed by a friend (Killing a friend falls under deathmatching).
  •   Unrealistic stunt jumping or the use of an expensive vehicle to ram into other vehicles.
  •   Spawning a scripted work vehicle and using it for crimes or submerging any vehicle in water.
  •   Swimming in water for an unrealistic amount of time or without a destination during a chase.

  Players who disconnect during roleplay must reconnect and inform other parties in order to resume roleplay. If you are unable to reconnect it may be excused after providing proof.

  In a situation where a player's game crashes or the player is kicked from the server, they should be allowed to have the same advantages as they have had before their leave.

  METAGAMING (MG)

  Metagaming is the act of relaying IC information through any method not considered IC that has the potential to change current or future roleplay scenarios or using that information.

  Mixing IC and OOC information without any benefit is a minor MG offense. For example, a player uses IC chat to call someone by their player ID displayed above their head.

  POWERGAMING (PG)

  Forceful roleplay that does not give the other player a chance to roleplay their own response is considered powergaming. Other players must be given a chance to roleplay outcomes of actions.

  Roleplay of unrealistic actions like super strength is another form of powergaming.

  All statements in /DO must be factually true in the roleplay as it sets grounds for roleplay.

  Roleplay is required before forceful server commands which may be used without consent from the other party if they are unresponsive and not typing for 30 seconds or more.

  A player cannot use the management script to destroy a faction/job as it is OOC.

  Government funded players must not abuse the salary system and must go off-duty when they are not performing their duties.

  NEW LIFE RULE (NLR)

  The new life rule is triggered whenever a player's character spawns at a hospital. Players cannot force their own death.

  The deceased character loses memory of their death, the events that caused it and the information collected in that time frame.

  Example: A player is killed in a robbery. The player's knowledge of the robbery, the robber and their death is not usable by the player in their new life.

  All parties involved must avoid interaction with each other for 30 minutes. A player must not return to the area of their death for that time frame or attempt to retrieve lost possessions from involved players. An exception is made for government members who may provide a duty service, though their memory being lost and inability to retrieve assets still apply.

  FEAR ROLEPLAY (FRP)

  Fear roleplay is the concept of roleplaying fear for your character's safety and life.

  Examples, where your character's life is considered to be in direct danger:

  •   When you are on foot or bike and a weapon is aimed at you at close range.
  •   When the engine of your vehicle is stalled and a weapon is aimed at you at close range.
  •   When the attacker lowers their weapon to type or roleplay, your life remains in direct danger.
  •   Driving a vehicle in an active shootout more than once without the intent of protecting a friend, fleeing with it, or using it as cover.
  •   Swimming in water for an unrealistic amount of time or without a destination during a chase.

  Examples, where your character's life is NOT considered to be in direct danger:

  •   When you are in a vehicle which engine is not stalled.
  •   When you have a firearm drawn and are facing the other person before they attacked.
  •   When the attacker's view is obstructed by an object or when they turn their back on you.

  As a victim, whose life is in direct danger:

  •   You must display reasonable value for your life and comply with the demands of your attacker.
  •   You cannot call 911 or call your friends or allies to aid you.

  DEATHMATCH (DM)

  Deathmatching is the act of attacking a player or their property without a proper roleplay reason.

  Examples of valid reasons to attack another player:

  •   If they attempt to arrest or hurt you, an ally, or damage your property.
  •   If they report you to the police for a serious crime.
  •   If they are not in compliance with demands, attempt to escape, or call other players for help in a situation where they are required to display fear under fear roleplay rules.

  A player cannot kill their victim if the victim is in compliance with the demands.

  A player must allow their victim enough time to comply with the demands.

  You must give demands via text if used as a reason to attack as VOIP isn’t always heard.

  Vehicles cannot be used to attack another player more than once including a failed attempt.

  Kill on Sight (KoS) is the act of killing a player with no engagement in roleplay. The person who has KoS rights must have evidence prior to committing the kill.

  Killing a player without warning or roleplay is allowed only within 24 hours of:

  •   Your life being threatened not including law enforcement aiming weaponry.
  •   The life of your friend or ally is presently being threatened or if you have witnessed it happen.
  •   A player attempting to steal your assets worth greater than 75k not including vehicles.

  PLAYER THEFT, PRISON BREAKOUT, AND KIDNAPPING

  Players cannot force their victims to withdraw money from an ATM, sell property, or sell vehicles.

  Players cannot force their victims to hand over assets that are not present in the area.

  Players may not steal from their place of work's accounts as the F4 menu is OOC.

  Players may participate in no more than 1 prison break attempt within 1 OOC week.

  Official Factions may attempt 2 additional breaks in the case the prisoner is the leader.

  Players are allowed to kidnap or to take other players hostage for these specific reasons:

  •   You have to have a roleplay reason to kill the victim in accordance with the KoS rule under DM.
  •   If you attempt to commit robbery of a property, you are allowed to hold the players within that property until you have finished the robbery. An NPC is not a valid hostage.
  •   If a hostage situation involves police in any way all of players involved in holding the hostage may not take another hostage for 1 OOC week.
