If bombing (bombing can be intentionally exploding a vehicle), robbing, or killing occurs around these or in these areas it is punishable by ban.  

Any weapon shop

Any vehicle spawn

Donator Shops

ATMs up to 50 meters in radious around it. This only affects all the ATMs that is marked on the map. (Exception below)

You may not use Safe zones as an escape zone

You are not allowed to loot dead bodies in a Safezone

You are not allowed to lockpick vehicles in a Safezone

When The Medics Take Out Their Bloodbus (this can only occour 1 time per 4 hour restart) it Automatically gives a safe zone perimeter of 500 meters (This Means That you are not allowed to engage anyone in That safe zone, this is a friendly RP situation, Breaking the rules will come with Consequences)

You are not allowed to Rob with Spikes or roadblock within 500m from a safezone ((For an example: https://gyazo.com/b2f1a183961e37b13df1b928003638f3 ). Although you are allowed to rob someone without spikes or roadblock within 500 m.

 

§.2 Random DeathMatch / Vehicle DeathMatch (RDM / VDM)

You are not allowed to engage via the cellphone, it must be done in direct voice chat.

Killing anyone without a roleplay cause is against the rules.

Declaring a rebellion is not a cause to kill anyone, even cops.

If you are killed in the crossfire of a firefight, it is not RDM.

Killing someone in an attempt to protect yourself or gangmembers is not RDMing. Remember, you always need to engage before shooting, no mather what.

Shooting a player without giving reasonable time to follow demands is considered RDM.

Driving over/ramming someone is never allowed under any circumstances (VDM)

Ifrit and Hunter are allowed to battle it out as long as one of the vehicles have a driver. (ramming eachother ONLY). You are never allowed to ram any other vehicles if you are driving a ifrit or hunter.

These are judged by admins on a case by case basis.

 

§.3 New life rule

The New Life Rule applies to police and civilians

If you die during roleplay your past crimes are forgotten, but you also cannot seek revenge.

If you are RDM'd, it is not a new life.

If you manually respawn, it is not a new life.

If you purposefully kill yourself to avoid roleplay, it is not a new life.

It's not a new life if you get revived by a medic

You may not return to the location where you got killed for 15 minutes. ( Script should prevent this ) These 15 minutes start when you press "RESPAWN", for example if you wait 3 minutes you will still have to wait 15 minutes after respawning.

If you have people alive in your gang that are still in a fight, you are allowed to come back to the fight after 15 minutes.

 

§.4  Exploits

These are considered exploits, and you will not be kicked, but banned.

Killing yourself to get out of roleplay. Getting out of being put in vehicle,  tazed, restrained, arrested, jail, etc. If the log shows you got arrested, then you died, you will be banned. Do not pay bail and kill yourself for an easy ride home.

Duping items and/or money. If someone you dont know sends you an unobtainable amount of money, report to an admin IMMEDIATELY, you have a responsibility to as you are the one receiving the money. Do this or an admin will ban you permanently if they see that much on you without question.

Using clearly hacked items. If a hacker comes in and spawns unobtainable items, you could be banned for using these items. Report the items to the admins immediately and stay away from them.

Abusing bugs or game mechanics for gain. If there is a replicating gun somewhere, report it and leave it alone. If an admin catches you abusing the glitch,  you will be banned permanently.

Running down to the water in an attempt to swim from a fight since you can´t take any damage

Swimming from one place to another in KOS zones or when you are in combat is bannable, however it is okay to briefly enter the water in order to for example access ladders from boats. Remaining in water for too long or not going directly for the ladder is also bannable.

Filling your vehicle with water (for example, driving it into the ocean on purpose) to avoid being robbed

lying injured and not respawn in a reasonable time

Using thirdparty programs or options which grant you a crosshair that other people do not have.

 

§.5 Bannable offences

Consider this your one and only warning.

Hacking

Cheating

Exploiting (See 'Exploits')

Being kicked 3 or more times.

Racism

Combatlog

RDM + VDM

Killing someone who is in jail

Selling/trading other game-items for ingame money/gear (such as a CS:GO knife for Altis life money)

Breaking any of our rules (make sure you read them carefully!)

If you don't tell admins that your game crashed while you are dead, you will get banned for combatlogging.

Logging out and spawn into your house to get there faster while the raid is in progress is forbidden, and will result in a ban

You are not allowed to threaten the medics if you are not involved in the fight, for an example: A.P.D are fighting a Gang, Then these are the only ones who can tell the medic "dont revive A.P.D/??? Or we will kill you" If a gang that is not in the fight for example gets to the place and threaten the medics this is considered lack of roleplay.

 

§.6 Red Marked areas ( illegal areas )

The red marked areas on the map stands for a illegal area, you may not kill other people on sight ( KOS )

Cops may taze on sight in these areas but they are not allowed to use a lethal weapon without roleplay involved.

Civilians may send the police a message telling them to leave the area as long as roleplay is involved. Ho

wever, the ''No engage with cellphone'' rule still applies here.

 

§.7 Boats

Items on this list may result in your removal from the server and/or ban, based on the admins discretion.

Repeatedly pushing boats without permission.

Pushing a boat with the intention of hurting or killing someone. This is not RP, it is just a flaw in the mechanics.

Purposefully running over swimmers/divers.

 

§.8 Cop interaction

Items on this list may result in your removal from the server and/or ban, based on the admins discretion.

Civilians can be arrested for following cops in game in order to give away their position.

Civilians or rebells who take up arms to kill cops in town or elsewhere for no RP reason will be considered RDMing. See  RDMing section.

Following and or harassing cops for long periods of time will be considered griefing and/or spamming, and will result in your removal from the server.

Actively blocking cops from doing their duties can lead to your arrest. Constantly doing this will result in your removal from the  server.

Cops may put vehicles in the impound-lot and those vehicles if not bought out may be destroyed.

 

§.9 Bans

If you for some reason are banned from our server these are the rules. If you break them additional time might be added to your time.

You may not play on the server from another account, you are banned for a reason.

You may not spam admins on Teamspeak about your ban unless told to contact them.

You may make a ban appeal if you think your punishment is too severe or wrongfully given

When talking to admins you may not invite your friends, admin will only talk to the ones involved in the case.

If rejected do not make another ban appeal. Respect the admins decision.

 

§.10 Compensation

If you need compensation for lost items.

Admins won't compensate your loss of items if you are killed by an Arma 3 related bug, if you get killed by a door for example.

Admins won't compensate your loss of items when its due to a Arma 3 related bug.

If you need compensation you must provide evidence of the incident.

Keep in mind these rules are always subject to be changed and additional rules may be added.

 

§.11 Valuing your life

You ALWAYS need to value your life no matter what (of course there will be exceptions), here are some guidelines:

When you are being engaged and you have your gun on your back, pulling up your gun and starting to shoot is not valuing your life (exceptions are if you are in a safe position when being engaged).

Engaging a group of other players in a non safe position is not valuing your life.

 

 

Gang and Civilian rules

1. Gangs

A gang can at max have 8 members online at the same time. (Because of balance ,is subject to change)

A gang must share the same tag for example:    [123]-Name

A gang will be judged for its actions as a group. (This applies for example if the gang leader of your gang declares war)

You're not allowed to change your name and join to an other gang just to perform a task together and then switch back to their other gang again. This means that you are not allowed to change from [123] to [abc] just to farm if [123] is blacklisted for an exampel.

You may only cooperate with another gang when robbing the Federal reserve. Other than that, co-operating is strictly forbidden and will never be tolerated.

If you want to create a war against other gangs you have to talk to the leader from the opposite gang (Make a thread on the forum). If the war is accepted by both parts, an admin will then decide to approve it or not.

 

2. Robbery

When you're about to rob someone, you have to give the victim a choice (If the victim fails to comply only then is lethal action allowed)

Remember: Selling/trading other game-items for ingame money/gear (such as CS:GO skins for Altis Life money @ General rules -> bannable offense

 

10. Federal Reserve / House Raids

Federal Reserve

When a robbery is going down at the Federal Reserve, everyone on the server is allowed to participate. This means you are allowed as a gang to role play your way in to the situation (If you do this in an threatful way this is okey, but doing so with for an example, a rook-40 in your hand will be classified as trolling and it will result in an punishment for your gang.

You are not allowed to place spikestrips on the bridges, they will bug into the bridges and become invisible.

1 life rule at FED ( if the COP are 8 or less online, they are allowed to use 2 lifes with no NLR )

If federal reserve is taken by the rebels Altis Rebels rules are: 1 life at federal reserve, 1 life at Altis Rebels Island

If the gang(s) robbing the federal reserve succeeds to kill an officer then that loot belongs to those gangs only. Looting an officer that the robbing gang(s) has killed will result in a temporary suspension of the player deciding to loot.

2 Gangs are allowed to Co-Operate when robbing Federal Reserve, They must inform the COP when they start which 2 gangs are co-operating

When the Federal Reserve goes down, The COP has KOS around the federal (proximitly 1km around fed buildings - please use your common knowledge here, if you see someone passing around in an truck box/offroad new players, making 0 threats towards your operation... doing 0 damage dont just shoot them, this will still be classified as an RDM)

Same rules apply to the Gang(s) robbing the Federal Reserve, If you feel threaten you are allowed to shoot, but please use your common knowledge.. if they don´t make a threat towards you, why shoot them? 1 life rule at FED ( if the COP are 8 or less online, they are allowed to use 2 lifes with no NLR )

Federal Reserve consists of 2 events, Federal Reserve and Federal Transport.

The transport event starts when a vehicle leaves fed - anything from a Quadbike, Hemmtt box or even a Mohawk. The ones who have died at the first Event (Fighting for the federal area) can join the Transport Event. The ones who have died have to be 2km away from Federal Reserve and can only go towards the area as soon the second event has started. (Keep in mind, New Life Rule Applies)

1 life on federal reserve, 1 life on the transportation event  (if you manage to survive the Federal Robery Event, you will have 2 lives on the Transportation Event)

You are only allowed to take Federal Reserve every second day (For an example, Your gang takes Federal Reserve on Monday, then they can´t take federal until wednesday)

If you are the robbers on federal reserve and you leave a vehicle after the robbery, the police have full authority to start an impound lot event on you and or your gang, This will happen in Safezone (until we fix impound lots on the map) And the maximum price allowed for the police to take out is 60% of the vehicles original cost, If the person who owns the vehicle doesn´t pay up they are allowed to blow it up in the sky

(if you manage to survive the Federal Event, you will have 2 lives on the Transportation Event) Keep in mind, New Life Rule still applies.

The gangs that take the Fed has 1 hour on from there they start cutting the door to them must get away

If you get disconnected during a take over of Federal Reserve (Ping to high, game crash etc.) you are able to get back to Federal Reserve by contacting the COP and make up a solution for you to get back to Fed (for ex. landing a hummingbird inside Fed). Coming back to Fed without contacting the COP about a solution is banable.

Medics are NOT allowed to use Strider if attending Federal Reserve Event!

House Raids

Rebells are allowed to help when a house raid takes place.  (posted under faction rules, but to make it easier to find)

Rebells will only be allowed to bring 1 hunter and they will only be allowed to help customers that have a weekpass, and if they are payed enough. (posted under faction rules, but to make it easier to find)

Rebells has to inform the police that they are on the way to help the civilian. (posted under faction rules, but to make it easier to find)

The transport containing the illegal items that has been confiscated can only be attacked by the gang that has been raided (Altis Rebels are not allowed to help during the transport)

Noone except for the civilian who is getting raided and his gang, are allowed to participate on the Raid, exceptions are the faction Altis Rebels who can get payed to help the civilian who is getting raided.

When the COP starts a raid, they are allowed to open all the doors, but when the first message comes out they must wait 20 minutes before searching the house and before opening the storage boxes to give the civilian who is getting raided a fair chance to defend and reclaim his stuff.

During a house raid the COP have kill on sight towards the one they are raiding and his Gang (this applies 1,5 km) from the actual house (Ofcourse they are allowed to shoot Altis Rebels if they have done their part in house raids and informed the COP that they are on their way to help the civilian and his gang)

Logging out and spawn into your house to get there faster while the raid is in progress is forbidden, and will result in a ban

Fast-traveling in order to move Gear from one house to another will be judged as Lack of RP. In order to move gear in a legitimate way from point A to point B you must use your backpack or a vehicle.

 

11. Scamming

Scamming someone is not allowed when selling GEAR, for an example, if you make a deal you are going to buy a weapon from someone for lets say 1,1 mil and you just take the gun and then leave - This is banable

 

12. Looting

Going in to a "warzone" and going for other peoples loot is banable(your gear will be wiped and you will recive a punishment all from 3-7 days depending on situation) This is to prevent people going in naked/fully geared and taking other peoples loot, and not valuing their lifes.

If there are 2 gangs vs COP for an example, both gangs have the right to loot, you are not allowed to kill each other without role play.

Just to clearify. The COP are always allowed to loot (this means, if someone dies infront of them they most likely will jump out and take his stuff if it is illegal, if the COPLoot, you do not have kill on sight, however.. you are allowed to engage them.

You are only allowed to loot people that you or your gang have killed, YOU ARE NOT ALLOWED TO LOOT PEOPLE WHO CRASH WITH THEIR VEHICLES. Trying to steal another gangs loot is bannable and you also risk breaking the ''not valuing your life'' rule.

 

13. Engage

If you are in a gang you must start your robbery with "THIS IS THE GANGNAME" For an example: This is the TRA, put your hands up or we will open fire.

You need to give the person(s) a resonable amount of time to react before shooting after your engage.

Third party engage will no longer be allowed. If two groups are having a fight you are not allowed to get involved until the ungoing fight is over. It is allowed for one of the groups already fighting to engage another group but that will only grant KOS on the ones who made the engage, not the opposing side. This rule only applies when a fight is already taking place, if your group engage two groups or more at once either by accident or not this will NOT be ruled as THIRD PARTY ENGAGE. Exceptions: - If the UFA have you restrained whilst they are fighting a war you are allowed to tell them to let you go or you/your gang will open fire. | Rebells have the right to engage everyone who engage their customers. | You are still allowed to try and Rob the people doing Federal Reserve during transportation.  

You are not allowed to engage a vehicle moving so fast that the person driving won't be able to hear the entire engage

 

14. Prison Break

The A.P.D have KOS inside the jail, if u are in this area the police are allowed to shoot you without no warning.

If a civilian is wearing gear (read, Tactical vest) and he gets killed inside the jail area when he is about to start an breakout, this gives KOS for his gang, if he dies in the area without gear, they are not allowed to shoot back. Doing so will result in an RDM ban and probably a longer punishment depending on the outcome.

When the civilians start an breakout they get KOS on the A.P.D inside Jail, this means, you are not allowed to shoot the police outside of prison (they must enter the gates) then the game begins, The A.P.D on the other hand, are allowed to start shooting towards Jail from outside, but keep in mind when they do so, the civilians get KOS on the A.P.D

 

15. Tempest Device & Orca

Tempest Device / Orca is not allowed during the event "purge"

Tempest Device / Orca is only allowed to use while farming

Using this vehicle in an attempt like hunter/ifrit while not farming is banable.

 

16. Restrain / Taze

If you get restrained, this does not give your gang KOS.

If you get tazed, this does not give your gang KOS. With that said, we hope this can bring back more roleplay instead of just killings everywhere - If you get restrained, and for an example: you have 2 cops or rebels infront of you, you have to say "If you do not let me go within a reasonable time my friends will open fire! (Reasonable time is, giving them enough time so that they can choose if they want to fight or unrestrain you) Also remember that you still need to value your life here!

Knocking someone down does not give them kos, however, if you do this towards an Police officer, you can bet your ass they will do something about it

You are not allowed to ziptie players inside safezones.

You are not allowed to ziptie players without rp involved.

Keep in mind these rules are always subject to be changed and additional rules may be added.

If he fails do to as he is told, you are allowed to kill him.

If you say: Only revive my mates, thats not an ultimatum make sure you say, Revive my mates only, if you try to revive anyone else you will die!

If you fail to do as above, it will be counted as an RDM.

Medics are ONLY allowed to revive 3 people per gang/faktion per fight.

Civilians or rebells who take up arms to kill cops in town or elsewhere for no RP reason will be considered RDMing. See  RDMing section.

 

When the Federal Reserve is being robbed, you ALWAYS need to have an negotiation in the beginning. Both parts can call the negotiation off, but then both negotiators need to be at safe distance before any shots can be fired. Calling off the negotation without a valid reason is consider fail RP!

 

Där är 2 nya viktiga regler, se till att ALLA läser igenom reglerna!
