OzzyGaming FiveM Server Rules
Last Update: 30/03/2019

Disclaimer:
These rules are under constant revision. Please bookmark this page and check back on a regular basis. 
Ignorance of the rules is not an acceptable excuse if a breach occurs.


Our rules are structured to be non-specific and generalised in most cases to allow interpretation and flexibility, rather than have a specific rule for every situation. When reported, rule breaches are investigated by a member of our staff team who will reference these server rules and then interject their own personal experience and opinion to mediate your issue. For players who are unhappy with one staff members resolution, we do offer escalation processes to higher staff members through our support system.

Our staff members handle many complaints and issues each day and volunteer their time to assist the community run happily and fairly. They will treat you with respect if you could have the courtesy to do the same. Getting heated, constant arguing or yelling at a staff member will typically result in your report and compensation request being voided.

1.15 Events: Ban Code Reference: [O]
Unless stated otherwise, event servers are treated as within role play and hostile activity is not permitted.

 

2.0 Role-play

2.1 Fail Role-play (RP): Ban Code Reference: [Rp]
You must role-play all scenarios. Fail RP is the act of failing to stick to your in-game persona or act in a way that would not occur in real life.


     2.1.1 Bannable examples:

  • RP Driving - You must drive in a manner that is realistic. This includes not driving regular/sports cars unrealistically offroad, using stunt jumps/ramps during pursuits etc. and you must RP all serious crashes, regardless if your car still works.

  • Weapon Pulling - When switching to a larger weapon (any two-handed weapon, melee included), players must be standing near your vehicle or locker.

  • Automatic Un-restrain - The server has a feature to automatically un-restrain you after ~10 minutes in case you have been dumped somewhere. If you are still within RP, you must still act restrained, there is no feature to self break out of cuffs.

  • Roleplaying Revives - If you are killed/knocked out and get revived, you must be willing to RP with the paramedics. Pulling a weapon, sprinting away etc. after being seriously injured and revived is not permitted.

  • Voice While Unconscious - If you have been incapacitated (killed) you can not start yelling etc. through your mic. It is acceptable to act weak/moan etc. and roleplay in that sense, you should otherwise act unconscious.

2.2 Value of Life: Ban Code Reference: [Rp]
Players must value their life at all times and be willing to surrender when clearly outnumbered or at a significant disadvantage. We do not have a strict “Fear RP” rule as such and understand in some situations it is reasonable to fight back or run given the opportunity. Roleplaying suicide is permitted however will result in a character wipe.

2.3 Terrorism/Career Criminal RP: Ban Code Reference: [Rp/Rm]
Roleplaying as terrorists and conducting widespread Hostile RP is not permitted.
If roleplaying as career criminals and conducting only hostile RP, you may be asked by staff to stop or slow down your actions. Repeated excessive hostile RP is not permitted. Civilians must not be in groups larger than 6 when conducting hostile RP.


2.4 New Life Rule: Ban Code Reference: [N]
If you die and respawn, you must forget all recent, relevant memories of the event and not return to the scene or situation where you were killed. Therefore revenge killing is not permitted.

2.5 Metagaming: Ban Code Reference: [M]
Metagaming is using information gained outside of RP/the game and using it in RP and is not permitted.

2.6 Powergaming: Ban Code Reference: [P]
Power-gaming is the act of working towards a goal without the intent to RP or allow others to RP with you to any meaningful degree, typically just playing to kill people.

2.7 Going out of RP: Ban Code Reference: [Rp]
Only OzzyGaming team members can go out of RP on the server. The use of the term “out of RP” etc. including in voice chat is not permitted in-game. This includes if you’rein a helpdesk channel or if another player has breached rules. You should continue to RP as best as you can or remain silent until a team member can deal with the situation.

2.8 Invoice Evasion: Ban Code Reference: [Rp]
Players are required to pay as soon as practicable any legitimate invoices they are given. Attempting to scam businesses etc. by simply not paying an invoice is not permitted. Contact an admin if you wish to dispute an invoice on your account.

 

3.0 Hostile Roleplay

3.1 Random Deathmatch (RDM): Ban Code Reference: [R/Rm]
You must have a reasonable role-play reason for killing another player or engaging in hostile RP. In general, you should make a clear declaration which was not followed or be fearful for your life before attempting to kill another player. Players should be willing to RP as a preference and not instantly become hostile.

          3.1.1 Additional Hostile RP rules: Ban Code Reference:


 

  • Cool Down - A Hostile RP situation is considered in progress for 10 minutes after the last hostile action between involved parties. New declarations are not permitted in this time, but any killings must still be reasonable. Players are not permitted to enter strict safe zones during hostile RP.

  • Declarations - A declaration should be provided to limit your liability when engaging in hostile RP such as robberies and kidnappings. Stating your request, a timeframe and a consequence to the victim. A declaration applies to a full group of players and can not be made via Twitter.

  • If you have player backup you must include that information in your declaration (without violating 2.1).

  • Reactionary Hostile RP - Players can take it as an instant declaration if someone attacks, steals from you, your friend, or your property. However, players are reminded not to use excessive force. E.g. if someone kicks your car, shooting them may be deemed excessive.

  • Traffic stops - Civilians cannot generally take police hostage or start hostile RP during a standard traffic stop. If you believe you are at risk of going to jail or getting large fines, you may declare and tie up/slow down police in order to aid your escape, only shooting if the police fail to comply.

3.2 Vehicle Deathmatch (VDM): Ban Code Reference: [V/Vm]
Using your vehicle as a weapon under reasonable grounds is permitted as per 3.1.
However randomly running over players or doing so without RP grounds is not permitted.

3.3 Bank/Store Robberies: Ban Code Reference: [T]
Players must plan to complete the entire robbery when it is initiated. Both parties must be willing to negotiate with all reasonable demands made verbally and not via Twitter. There is a 30-minute cooldown for each group between robberies and during a “Priority Cooldown” robberies are not permitted by any group.

3.4 Hostages: Ban Code Reference: [Rp]
Players must be willing to RP with their hostage and/or negotiate verbally with police when taking hostages. You cannot initiate hostile RP to take a police officer hostage, they can only be taken during an ongoing situation with a valid reason. Taking friends/compliant players as hostages is not permitted. You can’t ‘force’ a hostage to use an ATM/Bank transfer.

3.5 Strict (Green) Safezone Violation: Ban Code Reference: [Sz]
Strict safe zones (Green areas on the map) are areas which hostile RP cannot be commenced or brought into. These areas are reserved for roleplaying and should not be interfered with.

3.6 (Blue) Safezone Violation: Ban Code Reference: [Sz]
Safe zones (Blue areas on the map) are areas where hostile RP cannot be started
inside, but may be brought in from outside. 

3.7 Illegal locations: 
Some Illegal areas are represented by red or white circles on the map. These circles have no meaning and all rules still apply. Police know of and may patrol these areas. The Military base at Fort Zancudo is a restricted area and players are not permitted to enter.

3.8 Combat Logging: Ban Code Reference: [C]
Players are not permitted to log out during a hostile or role-play situation. If you accidentally lose connection etc. it is best to contact the people involved
andorganize a location to meet and continue the RP.

 

4.0 Faction Rules

4.1 Reporting Police/EMS:
Police and EMS are generally self-managed and regulated and if these players breach protocol, reports should be lodged to the relevant faction leadership team and not helpdesk.

4.2 Police/EMS must be on TeamSpeak: Ban Code Reference: [O]
While on duty as police or EMS, you must be in an appropriate TeamSpeak channel.

4.3 EMS are out of Hostile RP: Ban Code Reference:
In General, EMS (Paramedics) should not be killed or engage in hostile RP as they are neutral. Hostile civilians may direct them to leave an area and stop reviving a person and only then initiate hostile RP with adequate reasoning.

4.4 Use of tools/equipment is not permitted while off duty: Ban Code Reference: [E]
Factions must sign on duty when entering the server. Using/transferring any tools, weapons etc. while off duty is considered exploiting
