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 State Officials 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, characters or celebrities.
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 State Official.
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 State Officials via Discord or through the ticket system ( here ).
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 State Officials are allowed force pause RP or investigate rule breaches.
Only State Officials members are allowed to void roleplay scenarios at their discretion.
Players are welcome to voice their opinion but should never disobey State Officials.
A /REPORT does not pause roleplay unless a State Officials 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.
Face coverings are not permitted in NCZ areas.
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:
Actions that are unrealistic or promote poor quality roleplay are considered as non-roleplay.
Examples of actions that are considered as non-roleplay:
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 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.
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:
Examples, where your character's life is NOT considered to be in direct danger:
As a victim, whose life is in direct danger:
Deathmatching is the act of attacking a player or their property without a proper roleplay reason.
Examples of valid reasons to attack another player:
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:
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:
