Prospect Roleplay Rules

While most situations are not going to be so clear cut, administrators will have the right to assess each situation individually while following these guidelines. We hold the right to remove anyone that we find to be unfit for the community. Our purpose is to have a healthy community and for crims, cops, and all civs to enjoy themselves.


Age Requirement:
All players must be 16 or over. This is a mature server with mature themes. Individuals under the age of 16 may not be able to handle the stress of a high intensity environment and should wait until they have reached the maturity level to join. All characters must be over the age of 18.

Community members found to be underage may be removed from the community, but allowed to join once the requirement is met.


Hate Speech:
Using offensive language regarding race, religion, gender, sexual orientation, etc both inside and outside of RP is strictly prohibited. Depending on the severity of the offense and if it is aimed at community members, steps may be skipped. If hate speech is used to harass a person, jump to the “third offense.”

Potential Actions:
First offense: 1 day suspension from accessing the server and mute on discord.
Second offense: 3 day suspension from accessing the server and mute on discord.
Third Offense: 7 day suspension from accessing the server and mute on discord.
Fourth Offense: 30 day suspension from accessing the server and mute on discord.
Fifth Offense: Removal from Community until an appeal is approved. Appeals cannot be placed in for 60 days after a permanent ban. Removal from discord.



Toxicity, Bullying, and Harassment:
We have zero tolerance for toxic behavior of any kind. Every case will be looked at individually, but any behavior along these lines will NOT be tolerated. This includes but is not limited to contacting people on and off of the server with the intent to cause distress to another person. Your anger should never be aimed at a player or staff member of this community. This will not be tolerated. These cases will be handled harshly.

Potential Actions:
First Offense: 14 day suspension from accessing the server and mute on discord.
Second Offense: Removal from Community until an appeal is approved. Appeals cannot be placed in for 60 days after a permanent ban. Removal from discord.
Final Offense: If you should be unbanned after a permanent ban and act the same way again, you will be permanently banned from the server, discord, and the forums so that an appeal cannot be made in the future.



Firestarting:
Firestarting is the act of trying to create a mob mentality against a person, the staff team, or can be pretty much anything. Attempting to get a group of people to gang up because they are upset about something that happened in-game or something they wanted implemented not happening is a serious offense on this server and we do not take these cases lightly.

Due to the potential severity of this, each time this arises has to be dealt with on a case-by-case manner. Removal from the community and banned from the server is a potential outcome if the case is severe or toxic enough.


Contacting Development Team:
Our development team has a lot on their plates and should not be bothered with many issues. If you have a problem, be sure to contact the staff team or with in-game issues use the /report feature. This will save a lot of time and headaches and everything will be handled as smoothly as possible. Without being specifically told from a Senior Administrator or above, you should never contact the development team for help. Regular offenders can face disciplinary action.

Potential Actions: 24 day suspension from accessing the server for repeat offenders.


Using Real-World Money:
Purchasing any in-game benefits or products at any time should solely be done through in-game currency. There is zero tolerance for using real-world money to benefit your place in the server.

Community members caught spending real-world money to gain any kind of product or benefit in the game will be removed from the community and banned from the server. An appeal can be made on the forums 60 days after a ban.


Exploiting / Bug Abuse:
Any users caught exploiting bugs instead of reporting them may potentially face repercussions. This depends mostly on the severity of the abuse. Repeat offenders will be treated more harshly. If the exploit is severe, jump to “third offense.”

Potential Actions:
First Punishment: An official warning.
Second Punishment: 1 day suspension from accessing the server.
Third Punishment: 7 day suspension from accessing the server.
Fourth Punishment: 14 day suspension from accessing the server.
Fifth Punishment: Removal from Community until an appeal is approved. Appeals cannot be placed in for 60 days after a permanent ban. Removal from discord.


Backseat Administration:
Backseat Administration is where a player takes an administrative matter into their own hands, for example a player is Mass RDMing and a player is constantly killing them back, or telling them to leave the server.

It can also be seen as acting like an administrator when you aren't.

Dependant on the severity of the case, this could result in a warn to a suspension from the services.

Meta Gaming:
Meta gaming is your character knowing information that you cannot know within the game. For example, if you are selling drugs and your friend is a cop and tells you on discord that cops are headed your way and to go away. Your character has no way of knowing this. Another example would be finding the Moonshine location on one of your criminal characters and suddenly knowing it when you login to your other one. If another person tells you the information, that is perfectly fine. A third and important example to keep in mind would be watching streams. If you see someone at a specific location on stream and use that information in character in any way, this is a severe offense. Whether it is looking where cops are, seeing where a criminal character is hiding while you are searching on your cop, or seeing a streamer go to locations you want to know. This is a very severe offense. See rule: Stream Sniping.

Actions taken will depend on the severity of the situation. Some steps may be skipped.

Potential Actions:
First Punishment: An official warning.
Second Punishment: 1 day suspension from accessing the server.
Third Punishment: 7 day suspension from accessing the server.
Fourth Punishment: 14 day suspension from accessing the server.
Fifth Punishment: Removal from Community until an appeal is approved. Appeals cannot be placed in for 60 days after a permanent ban. Removal from discord.



Stream Sniping:
Stream sniping will not be tolerated in any way. You may not use any information you watch in streams on your character. If you do not discover it in character then you may not use the information at all. This can be as serious as a cop knowing where a criminal is hiding out or a criminal knowing that cops are getting alerts of their drug sales. This could also be something that seems harmless like watching a streamer go into a moonshine location and going there yourself or seeing a streamer run a trucking path or selling drugs in a specific location and using it yourself. Your character has no way to know this information unless you find out within rp.

We will not tolerate stream sniping and punishment will be severe.

Potential Actions:
First Punishment: 14 day suspension from accessing the server.
Second Punishment: 30 day suspension from accessing the server.
Third Punishment: Removal from Community until an appeal is approved. Appeals cannot be placed in for 60 days after a permanent ban. Removal from discord.



Power Gaming:
Setting up unrealistic situations and using in-game mechanics to guarantee a “win” is strictly prohibited. RP is to be taken seriously, power gaming is considered weak roleplay. An example would be telling someone you are breaking their hand so that they cannot shoot back. See: Having a Win Mentality.

Actions taken will depend on the severity of the situation. Some steps may be skipped.

Potential Actions:
First Punishment: An official warning.
Second Punishment: 1 day suspension from accessing the server.
Third Punishment: 7 day suspension from accessing the server.
Fourth Punishment: 14 day suspension from accessing the server.
Fifth Punishment: Removal from Community until an appeal is approved. Appeals cannot be placed in for 60 days after a permanent ban. Removal from discord.



Having a Win Mentality:
It is important to remember that while GTA is a video game, RP is not the same as playing versus game. It is not Cops VS Criminals. There are no winners and losers. All characters are part of a story. Some scenes you will come out the victor, others you will be sent to jail or the hospital. Members who continuously get angry and complain OOC or in LOOC may face punishment. This is important because it ruins the enjoyment of other people in roleplay. Just try to have fun and not complain when things don’t always go your way.

Potential Actions for Repeat Offenders:
First Punishment: 7 day suspension from accessing the server and mute on discord.
Second Punishment: 14 day suspension from accessing the server and mute on discord.
Third Punishment: 30 day suspension from accessing the server and mute on discord.
Fourth Punishment: Removal from Community until an appeal is approved. Appeals cannot be placed in for 60 days after a permanent ban. Removal from discord.
Final Punishment: If you should be unbanned after a permanent ban and act the same way again, you may be permanently banned from the server, discord, and the forums so that an appeal cannot be made in the future.



Using Game Modifications / External Applications
Using cheats, hacks, abusing glitches, abusing 3rd person and using other third party software to give yourself an advantage over other players (such as autoclickers) is not allowed.
Doing so will mean an immediate removal of your account, or alternatively, your items are removed and character is wiped - Dependant on the situation.

Discord / Third Party Communication:
It is okay to use discord when you are just with a few friends and no one else is involved. However, any information learned in discord cannot be known by your character and must be told to you in game. At least if the RP involves anyone else at all. If there is anyone in the area that could hear the conversation, you must use your in-game voice.


Quality of RP / Breaking Character:
No one is going to wake up one day and be the best roleplayer their first time. No one is perfect. We understand this. If you follow the other rules and don’t break character, this rule should not be a problem.

This rule covers the fact that this is more than a videogame, it is roleplaying. If you are constantly just using it solely as a video game and not playing a character then a serious roleplay server may not be a good place for you.

It is important to stay in character at all times.

Potential Actions for Repeat Offenders:
First Punishment: An official warning.
Second Punishment: Being kicked from the server, but can immediately rejoin.
Third Punishment: 1 day suspension from accessing the server.
Fourth Punishment: 7 day suspension from accessing the server.
Ultimate Punishment: Removal from Community until an appeal is approved. Appeals cannot be placed in for 60 days after a permanent ban. Removal from discord.



Vehicle Deathmatch (VDM) / Random Deathmatch (RDM):
Running someone over with your car or attacking them with no conversation to create the situation will not be tolerated. It is perfectly fine to hold someone at gunpoint before speaking to them and starting conversation, but it is not acceptable to walk up and shoot someone without conversation.

Actions taken will depend on the severity of the situation. Some steps may be skipped.

Potential Actions:
First Punishment: An official warning.
Second Punishment: 7 day suspension from accessing the server.
Third Punishment: 14 day suspension from accessing the server.
Fourth Punishment: Removal from Community until an appeal is approved. Appeals cannot be placed in for 60 days after a permanent ban. Removal from discord.



GTA Driving:
GTA Driving is intentionally hitting things that you wouldn’t in a million-dollar car and zooming unrealistically up mountains. Of course things happen sometimes. If someone GTA drives in front of you, you should not let it stop your RP. Keep going with the scene. If you accidentally take a jump or something that isn’t believable, try to RP damaging your car. If you flip your car on its roof while in a chase, consider getting out rather than spinning it back.

Potential Actions for Repeat Offenders:
First Punishment: An official warning.
Second Punishment: Being kicked from the server, but can immediately rejoin.
Third Punishment: 1 day suspension from accessing the server.



Combat Logging:
Combat logging is quitting the game to prevent yourself from losing items, going to jail, etc. Sometimes crashes do happen, but it is important to log back on and spawn in the same location. Immediately logging back in at a different location in an attempt to escape prison, a ticket, or a losing situation makes no realistic sense and will result in immediate action taken. If you accidentally login at the wrong location, simply ask to be brought back so the scene can continue.

Actions taken will depend on the severity of the situation. Some steps may be skipped.

Potential Actions:
First Punishment: An official warning.
Second Punishment: 1 day suspension from accessing the server.
Third Punishment: 7 day suspension from accessing the server.
Fourth Punishment: 14 day suspension from accessing the server.
Fifth Punishment: Removal from Community until an appeal is approved. Appeals cannot be placed in for 60 days after a permanent ban. Removal from discord.



Forcing Perma and Force RP:
You may not attempt to force someone to permanently kill their character. That is their decision and cannot be forced on them. Forcing a person to roleplay in the way that you want them to is not allowed. A person’s character is theirs to play as they wish.

Potential Actions:
First Punishment: An official warning.
Second Punishment: 1 day suspension from accessing the server.



ERP / Erotic RP:
ERP is only allowed for people over the age of 18. Any situations where someone over the age of 18 takes advantage of someone under the age, they will be removed from the community with no chance to appeal.

ERP is allowed if you are 18 or older and both consenting.

Potential Repercussions: Removal from community.


Sexual Assault RP:
Forcing someone to face this kind of situation can be traumatizing. This includes threatening rape or other situations that might be traumatic to them. If you and a person agree to some dark roleplay like this it is fine as long as no one else can witness it or be brought into it later. This is a sensitive situation for a lot of people, so it is usually best not to touch it.

Due to the potential severity of this, each time this arises has to be dealt with on a case-by-case manner. Removal from the community and banned from the server is a potential outcome if the situation is forced on someone.


Torture RP:
Torture roleplay is not strictly prohibited, it is just important that the person agrees to take part in it.

Due to the potential severity of this, each time this arises has to be dealt with on a case-by-case manner. Removal from the community and banned from the server is a potential outcome if the situation is forced on someone.


NVL / Not Valuing Life:
When you are in roleplay, your character’s life matters. While you know as the person behind the character that you can resurrect yourself, the character doesn’t. If someone holds a gun to your head, you need to value your life.


Suicide RP:
Suicide is a sensitive subject for a lot of people. It isn’t against the rules to involve suicide in your roleplay if everyone involved agrees to it. If someone pulls you into a suicide scene and you are not willing to take part of it, you have the right to walk away from the roleplay.

People continuously attempting suicide on their character in order to force RP will be considered breaking the “NVL” rule.

Potential Actions for Repeat Offenders:
First Punishment: Character to be declared dead and deleted so it cannot be used again.
Second Punishment: If the character is brought back or another one is brought back with the same actions they will be removed from the Community until an appeal is approved. Appeals cannot be placed in for 60 days after a permanent ban. Removal from discord.



Military Base and Military Vehicles and Other Prohibited Locations:
It is unrealistic for a civilian to casually walk into a military base and just get into a tank. Doing so is strictly prohibited.

The server auto-bans people in these situations.


Police Presence:
Whether you know there are cops or not, you should always proceed as if there is a city full of cops. Do not abuse the fact that there are no offers on at a given time.


Use of OOC/LOOC:
OOC and LOOC should only be used for things that cannot be handled in character. Try to use the chat as little as possible. It is perfectly acceptable to ask and answer questions regarding game mechanics. For example, asking what key to lock a car is fine. It generally is faster to use your character/voice and say, “What muscle do I use to lock my car?” Either way is acceptable. Using “Out Of Character” or “Local Out Of Character” chat to rage about the results of a fight will not be tolerated. These will potentially result in repercussions. Severe situations may be covered under “Having a Win Mentality” or “Toxicity.”

Potential Actions for Repeat Offenders:
First Punishment: An official warning.
Second Punishment: Being kicked from the server, but can immediately rejoin.
Third Punishment: 1 day suspension from accessing the server.



Stealing Planes and Helicopters:
At this current time it is not acceptable to steal any planes or helicopters. In some cases this will auto-ban.

Potential Actions:
First Punishment: An official warning.
Second Punishment: 1 day suspension from accessing the server.
Third Punishment: 7 day suspension from accessing the server.



Having More Than 4 People on a Scene:
The limit of people used in a crime is 4. So you can have up to 4 people in a robbery, in a side of a gang fight, etc.

Potential Actions:
First Punishment: An official warning.
Second Punishment: Being kicked from the server, but can immediately rejoin.
Third Punishment: 1 day suspension from accessing the server.
Fourth Punishment: 7 day suspension from accessing the server.
