    Hello everyone. We are aware of all the rumors, faction drama, people leaving, people feeling like nothing is being done and that nothing is happening. This post is here to give everyone an overview of what’s been going on, what’s going to happen to both factions, staff members leaving, and so on. Keep in mind that the leadership and developer team of Roleplay Project has not give up. We’ve barely even gotten started. We made a commitment to offer an Multi Theft Auto server again, and we will continue to stand by that. When Waffle went down, all the players and most of the community came directly to us. You all wanted us to open an Multi Theft Auto server as quickly as possible, we wanted to wait a little further until all new features and structures would be completely done, which would have taken us longer to do. Everyone told us to open it right away, and people said that any minor things that needs to be worked on, could be done so while it was launched. Players just wanted a place to role play quickly. A lot of rumors and misinformation are currently floating out within the community, so we’ve decided to tackle the situation and inform everyone of what has actually happened. The Team Leader situation The first week of launching the server, everything was working smoothly. The purpose of the Team Leader ranks were to put one person in charge of the different teams such as legal faction team, illegal faction team, mapping team, vehicle team, and so on. The first week of the server launch went great, there was no major issues within the Team Leader division whatsoever. Then some cases started to develop, where something would be stuck between two teams. Things slowly heated up and ertidog started refusing to work with the other Team Leaders. Knowing his many factions and people he had behind him, he started to think of himself as more important than the other team leaders. Obviously his team, the Illegal Support Team plays a very important role in the community. We know how important they are, and how much work it takes to maintain this. Calling other team leaders inferior and not as important, will naturally form the other team leaders against him. Imagine telling someone at your workplace that you are more important than them. He agreed that he dug his own grave on that part. We also agreed to completely redesign and restructure how team leaders work and function, these were one of ertidog’s demands. We were working out a whole new structure and setting up a meeting to discuss it with all of the team leaders before implementing it. Everyone agreed, and everyone was satisfied for the time being. Before this meeting could happen, ertidog started seeing himself as more and more important, refusing to be on a par with the other team leaders. He wanted his own special rank to show everyone how much more important he was and the work he does. He eventually told us that he should have a Community Management position, because of how important he is and the work he does. However, he would “settle” for a Senior Moderator position. We tried to explain that Moderators is its own team, and has nothing to do with the Illegal Faction Team. We gave ertidog full complete freedom to do exactly what he wanted. As a team leader, you fully run your team. He can put and remove anyone he wants in the team, and run it however he pleases with all the commands given to him that he required and needs in-game. As he continued to argue and act more important than everyone else in the community, things started to heat up. Too many guns and ammo were spawned that are completely out of place. Which the new Illegal Support Team Leader has removed and fixed. However we let him do all of this as he had full complete freedom with his team. An argument happened between ertidog and Bunny, which was about the internal drama and arguing with the other team leaders. Eventually, ertidog was mad that permissions within the staff team were “messed” up. Developers were given the opportunity to look at other chats to be there as an assistance. Ertidog refused to let anyone from the dev team give their opinions and showed many signs of refusing to work together. He simply wanted to be above everyone else. After getting his roles and permissions removed, ertidog began doing as much damage as he could. He went on to our Trello - Which is a site for where the put all the things for developers that needs to be done. Bug fixes, changes, and internal developer communication and codes. He began removing and permanently deleting everything that was on there, leaving developers confused and finding it difficult for them to bring all of this stuff back. Some stuff today has still not been recovered. This is the reason why he got permanently banned by Bunny afterwards for Third Party Tampering. Of course, our mistake was to not inform the community right away about this. Most of the people we spoke to never knew what actually went on. They had only heard ertidog’s side. So, naturally. Only knowing ertidog’s side and believing that to be the truth at the time, a lot of people including his friends started leaving. A lot of these people would probably leave either way since they were his friends. This started a big chain of more and more people leaving. Keep in mind that this is just a short and the “quick” version of what happened with the ertidog situation. A lot more internal stuff happened, that we don’t feel like we need to get into detail with due to privacy concerns for other staff members. San Andreas State Police: As for State Police, Samuel left the faction because he felt like he was giving too much and it was going on very unappreciative. Members of the faction believed that Samuel was too much into copying real life and didn’t realize it was the game. Community Management understood this and recognize this but we believe that it was up to the Major to put in the standards of the department. People continued to complain to Samuel and he evidently got tired, and decided to leave the server along with other reasons which he does not feel to name. We wish Samuel the best in his future endeavors as his time here on Roleplay Project, he was greatly appreciated in all aspects. (In Character and Out of Character) Staff Members Leaving: There seems to be a trend among the staff team to leave the team simply because things don’t go their way. We’re addressing that, and we’re simply asking members of the team and players to simply address issues to us rather than go behind our backs and talk among us. The famous quote is as follows: Demotivation and no updates: This has been an on-going issue for a while, a lot of staff arguing among themselves and other people getting demotivated due to the drama internally. Which has caused some but not all staff members to resign. Within the team this is highly frowned upon and will not be tolerated no more, although we allow some jokes among us, there is a line you do not cross. All members of the staff team have now been addressed and we’re hoping this won’t be an on-going issue anymore because at the end of the day we are all here to play a game and enjoy our time here. Due to de-motivation which has probably lead to other things, like lack of updates and transparency issues which will also no longer be an issue. We have a support section on Discord and Forums, where you can ask any questions relating to the community. New PR and Event Planning Teams: We’re in the process of recruiting a Public Relations team internally, who will be the face of putting news across to the community and answering any questions that are brought forward. We are doing this to increase transparency and make regular members aware of what's going on in the different sectors of the community i.e. development, staff and other things that can be included. Regards, Roleplay Project Staff.

    After a rocky week, we are ready to bounce back. First and foremost we would like to thank Samuel for his hard work and dedication that he has done for The Roleplay Project. He worked countless amounts of hours, preparing the forums and discord to the state they are right now. All the ingame perks are done via forums and that's all thanks to him. Lemley has also been here prior to the launch of our server, and he has put plenty of effort into making it what it is right now. They deserve the best. Thank you Sam & Lemley! We're glad to announce Resident as our new Senior Moderator. He will be helping and aiding the current senior team to make sure our mod team is working effectively. We're confident that Resident was the perfect pick for Senior, since he has been an administrator for years in the past, and he surely knows what he's doing. Lastly, I would like to thank every single one of you who still have faith in us, your support over these times is everything. I'm sure we'll have a bright future ahead of us with strong supporters. Staff updates are done on a monthly basis unless special circumstances warrant otherwise.

    LEGAL SUPPORT TEAM JANUARY UPDATE Hello to everyone, First of all I would like to thank the players and staff team for their effort and dedication lately. Second of all, as some of you have heard Kaasisbaas has stepped down as Legal Support Team Leader due to personal reasons and general lack of time to lead the team, with it he left us a lot on our plate, such as unanswered players requests and faction updates. The Community Management Team decided to promote me to the position and I would like to say that all requests are being answered and handled in a speedy manner. Anyone is free to send me a private message if you have any questions regarding the Faction Administration Team! About myself, I am from Portugal and have been playing MTA RP since 2014, mostly under the legal side. I used to lead a couple factions throughout my years of roleplaying, some of the factions were RPMF Incorporated, San Andreas National Guard, Ferrari Owners Club and so on. What will you expect from me and LST? Simple, crystal clear transparency, activity and team work. We are here to help, not to limit your roleplay. Legal Support Team Recruitment & Roster We are currently looking for experienced legal roleplayers to join our team therefore if you wish to apply simply send me a private message through discord or the forums with: why you wish to join, your previous legal roleplay experience and why you would be a benefit to our team. Everything that we do, we do as a team, and we wish to fill one or two spots with people who understand this concept. Team Roster Update Arrivals: @grif @Shaderz Departures: @BremboBG (Resignation) @Kaasisbaas (Resignation) Members: @George @CherAmi @magnolia Legal Support Team Activity Update Statistics: Upon receiving leadership over the team, we answered and handled around roughly 12 faction requests, some were denied but a large majority were accepted. In general, most requests were for property and vehicle funding for the current legal factions. One F3 was given and new leaders were assigned to other factions. I will elaborate throughout the announcement. Goal: Our current goal is to organize our database and the way we handle requests as we wish to create a easier and faster way to get in touch with the players needs for their roleplay. Therefore strenghthening our bond with the community and our faction leaders. We would also like to increase the amount of announcements posted, therefore establishing more transparency and updates to the community, so the players are aware of the latest faction news. Faction Leadership Updates: In these past couple weeks we lost 4 faction leaders, the factions in question are: Red County Fire Department, Supreme Court of San Andreas, Red County Government and Express Global Logistics. Some leaders left due to lack of time or personal reasons, others left due to discontent. Two faction leaders left due to much needed power restrictions within government factions, in this case, the Supreme Court of San Andreas had three Distric Attorney Investigators with the goal of somehow patrolling the county and assisting with warrants. However, it was my decision to restrict that specific rank to two DAI's instead of three due to the lack of roleplay available for them, not to mention the playerbase doesn't fully support it. That caused the leader which I will not mention, to leave all server factions alongside with the Red County's Fire Department leader which was in one of those ranks from SCoSA, thus leaving us and their team without a leader. Regarding the Red County Government, Kaasisbaas has been inactive lately and due to it he was removed from the position, leaving @Najkwiin as the acting County Commissioner until elections are in place. More information about that will come soon. Just recently the leader of Express Global Logistics resigned from the position due to lack of motivation to roleplay, among other personal reasons. The new leader is @cookin. The new faction leader for the Red County Fire Department is @Shaderz along with @Deuce. Bank of San Andreas received a new leader as well, @CherAmi. We are still currently looking for a capable leader for the Supreme Court of San Andreas, if you got the legal roleplay experience don't hesitate to contact me. We have just recently issued The JW Corporation a small F3 system to help them keep their faction, properties and staff organized. This faction is based around a handfull of small business. Unofficial, Semi-Official & Official Factions System Unofficial: A newly made faction with a small amount of members, this status is mostly attributed to those factions who require an F3 system in order to control their finances, members and their wages. Usually an F3 is given when requested if the faction has shown activity. These issued F3's can hold up to 5 interior slots and 5 vehicle slots, depending on the faction the slot capacity may increase. However, unofficial factions lack the support for free custom duty skins and custom interiors. Semi-Official: A faction with some miles and activity to it along with a larger member base, this status is attributed to a trusted faction which has shown to be active by creating jobs and roleplay opportunities. The perks of this status is the increased amount of support, such as being able to implement free duty skins and custom interiors not to mention the support from the Legal Team in regards to funding vehicles, properties and items. These factions receive a raise in slots up to 15 interiors and 20 vehicle slots, with the exception of dealership factions. Official: The final status for a faction, given to those who truly shown to be active within the server and provided continuous quality roleplay to the community. This status has the same perks as a Semi-Official faction, with the exception of an increase in interior slots (25) and vehicle slots (35). Also, a sub-forum is awarded to the faction so that the leader can better manage it. Monthly Faction Updates We are going to be implementing a new monthly system in the forums which allows faction leaders to provide the Legal Support Team with a monthly update on their activity, finances, requests and much more. This will help us keep track of every faction as well as help faction leaders prove their activity. @FAILCAKEZ is currently working on the small form. Current & New Faction Leaders This section is reserved for leaders to talk about their activity and plans. It serves as a way for players to understand what is going on with the current state of the legal factions and their status. Red County Government (Official) With the departure of the former leader, a new one has stepped up, @Najkwiin will be the acting County Commissioner until we find someone suitable for the position through the upcoming elections. The future elections will give everyone a chance to vote for their favourite party, whoever is interested may start working and planning their campaign. The current leader has plans in to make the department of licensing more active by implementing event and business licenses. He is looking for experienced roleplayers to help him run the departments. San Andreas State Police (Official) After the resignation from @Samuel, it was decided that @Morris7878 would be the most experienced person to lead the faction, he already placed in plans to shorten the ranks and structure of the faction to fit our playerbase, thus having one Captain and one Lieutenant who supervises the supervisory staff and their units. The leader also intends on increasing the roleplay standards for the faction. Leader statement: Red County Fire Department (Official) @Shaderz was promoted to Fire Chief and @Deuce to Assistant Chief, both these players have experience in leading a fire department from other servers, therefore they were the best fit for position. Leader statement: Supreme Court of San Andreas (Official) With the resignation of the previous leader, we are dismissing the faction until we find someone capable of setting it up. Currently there is no need for such faction to exist considering our player base. Regarding warrants, they will be reviewed by myself and other legal experienced leaders since there is no District Attorney present or Chief Justice. If you have what it takes feel free to send me a PM with your roleplay background and faction plans. Bank of San Andreas (Official) We have a new leader after the previous one got removed for the lack of activity. @CherAmi is now leading this faction and has plenty of plans for it, such as establishing loans for players, getting a cash-in-transit section of the Bank running as well as getting partnerships in order to aid small business. Leader statement: Renshaw Towing & Autos (Official) The faction leaders remain ( @Fernando) and activity is still strong and they intend in improving their roleplay standards. Leader statement: Express Global Logistics (Official) Led by @cookin after the previous leader @Tajiri resigned, they intend on providing the players with plenty of distribution roleplay. Leader statement: Autosport Club of San Andreas (Official) A autosports faction centered around motor racing, the current leader is @AlfaCorse, he has plans to increase the server activity by continuing to provide roleplay to vehicle enthusiasts throughout the events. Leader statement: Finnigan Automotive (Semi-Official) A mechanic garage with a twist, they provide automotive mechanic roleplay, such as modifying and repairing vehicles, not to mention they also import them. The current leader is @RazorRC, an experienced member when it comes to this type of roleplay. Leader statement: Polaris Defense (Semi-Official) A faction focused around security services inspired by a private military company, they provide players with good security solutions, if you have any questions feel free to ask it's leader @5150. Leader statement: The News (Unofficial) Currently being led by @luigikuik. He has been inactive lately due to holiday season, the faction's purpose is to provide journalist roleplay both on the forums and in-game. Rivera Construction (Unofficial) A faction that provides construction roleplay, if you need a map built they're the ones to call, they intend on improving their activity and increasing their fleet. The leader is @Spl4z. Angel Construction (Unofficial) Another construction faction, although inactive these past couple days due to the holidays, their roleplay is welcome, current leader is @DejoPejo Liberty Automotive Group (Unofficial) A vehicle import faction/dealership ran by @ElChapo. He has plans to increase the roleplay around vehicle imports. Cross Holdings (Unofficial) An insurance faction led by @George, it's quite new although its concept is pretty neat, he plans on providing players and companies with vehicle and property insurance. Also, hopefully in the future he might add a nightclub to his corporation which will provide much needed night life and roleplay to our community. Leader statement: Riverside Recyclers LLC (Unofficial) An unique faction which provides recycling roleplay, they will be collecting the county's trash and managing it through their waste management facility. Any questions direct them to @Munhausen. Leader statement: JW Corporation (Unofficial) A newly made faction led by @PornMaster, it has been recently given an F3 for organizational purposes. Their intention is to provide the server with more roleplay and job opportunities IC'ly through their many companies. Leader statement: Faction Related Event As some of you might have heard the Community Management Team is planning a server event and myself and the current faction team leaders are preparing and organizing for it in order to ensure the best roleplay experience for all parties. The event will be all inclusive, meaning all factions will have a job or something to do, thus ensuring that anyone can partake. We decided to not state what the event will be about because it's not yet fully confirmed however we will keep you posted with information both IC and OOC about it. Thank you very much for reading and I hope everyone has a happy new year!

    Don't try to soften what really happened between Waffle and Project Roleplay and why it opened when it did. Most people know it already. It's unbelievable how every server that gains traction manages to fuck up the same way for years on end (except for Waffle funny enough). I don't understand it, it are the same people doing the same things but still they are oblivious to the same problems. Why don't you post server updates? People want to see server progression, they want to know that work is being done and that change is being made. They don't want to have the same limitations every roleplay server has since no development is being done (except for Waffle, they showed their development). I don't understand the excuse: "We only been doing bug fixes so that's why there are no updates (threads posted showcasing them)". Who the hell cares that there are no new things? The community wants to know that stuff is being done, no matter if they are just bug fixes. If you fix bugs, let the community know, they care, if they don't see anything they'll simply assume that nothing is being done. Why is every roleplay server so afraid of posting updates? 400 changes you say? Why are we only allowed to know this now, when the server has taken a huge hit to the playerbase? By the time those updates hit there will only be a small fraction of the PB remaining to enjoy them.

So without further ado, we will be opening the Moderator applications once again.

    Weekly Server Events Hello everyone! It's time to officially start with weekly events! Our plan is to do weekly events that will create as much roleplay for everyone as possible. We want the events to be something simple for people to get into, easy to log in and take part in without too much confusion and hassle. The planned weekly events aren't going to be something massive, such as disasters that has taken place in previous communities before. We have several ideas lined up that we have started to plan and map out. It will range from anything such as festivals, tournaments, gokarting, paintball, racing, boating, aviation, and much more. We realize that we cannot please everyone with one event, which is why we have decided to do this weekly with different themes and events. We are always open to new ideas as well, so please feel free to leave a comment below on what you'd like us to do in a future event. Keep in mind that we want to keep it simple and realistic, it must somehow fit the county, be outdoor so we don't all hide and isolate ourselves inside an interior, be easy for players to come and go as they please, and so on. For example with the gokarting event that we have planned out, the idea will be that every single faction can somehow take place in it. Players will be able to sign up ICly for gokarting, paying a small realistic in-game fee to enter followed by instructors that will inform them and show them what will happen next, creating as much roleplay as possible. Players will also be able to just come by and view the race as spectators for free, with factions and other players selling food, showing off their shops with smaller stands, FD and SP being there for safety and checking up on the event, a private company managing the security and safety of the event, and so on. It will be much more than just gokarting itself, I think you all get the idea here. We will also have in-game prices for the winners of the tournaments! The examples provided above is just one of many events that we have planned to do, the idea is so include everyone that wishes to take part in it. I hope that this is something people want, so far it seems to be very popular with everyone. Like I mentioned above, feel free to leave a comment with what you'd like to see as a future weekly event!

    Good initiative! I can speak on behalf of the dev team, but I'm sure you will enjoy what we have planned for Q1 of 2020. Remember we set up a MTA RP server very quickly on a 90% stable gamemode, so the first two months of life was 95% bug fixing. Only a minority of new things were scripted, but we already have over 400 changes that were done the script. Looking forward for the PR team to announce our changes on a regular basis. Thank you

    Opening IST Applications. Dear RPP Members As you probably have already noticed over the last few weeks the IST suffered some departures. That's why we decided to open applications and give new people a shot to join us. What does the IST even do? Essentially we regulate everything connected to the Illegal World, gun/drug drops, look through VM reports and what else is connected to illegal Roleplay. If you feel like you got what it takes to join us, apply via the google form linked here. The IST wishes good luck to all applicants.

    Some people don’t realize this is a video game and it’s meant for fun, most of the people doing the insulting here are probably minors that have it too good at home so don’t act like you’re better than anyone else because yOuRe tHe CoNsUmEr. The server was made for people to enjoy because people complain about not having an MTA English RP server, but all I see are these people biting the hand that feeds them. Grow up and start acting more mature, your life will go on if someone 1000 miles away from you says a bad word or does something you don’t like. Also, unless you’re staff you have absolutely no say in what channels are seen by what teams, and unless you’re in some sort of authority over me or any other human being here you have absolutely no say in their actions. Suggest are welcome, yes. But don’t sit here and try to govern the staff. Some of you guys are seriously sickening. Grow up the hell up.

    Chill dude... They're doing as good as they can to put a good server together with what they have... Not everyone has 24 hours a day to invest into scripting an MTA server, I don't know about you; but a lot of us have jobs in the real world and have to balance work, real-life responsibilities, and videogames into their day... Sometimes I don't even get a chance to get on MTA because I wake up, go to work and do my job throughout the day; then come home and have to go right to sleep for work the next day.

    Late December Staff Update We had a great launch, and a very productive one at that. We are excited to announce the recent changes to the staff team and the player inducted into the probationary period of being a moderator! We are proud to welcome Lartsa to the Senior Moderation Team. He will be helping and aiding the current senior team to make sure our mod team is working effectively. We hope that because of his timezone and his hardwork/dedication he will be able to provide the team the missing parts we need. A special thank you to the current moderators who put in their all and do everything they can to assure our players are happy here at RPP. We would like to wish you all Happy Holidays and a Happy New Year! Staff updates are done on a monthly basis unless special circumstances warrant otherwise.

    1. Common Courtesy Be respectful to fellow community members, think about the things you say and do. A simple way to explain this rule is “treat others how you expect to be treated.” We will not tolerate abusive behavior towards any member of our community. This especially applies to our staff team as we are here to help you. If someone is attempting to disrupt your roleplay, you may ignore them, however if it is a member of staff is attempting to contact you then you must respond. Refusing to do so will result in punishment depending on the severity of the situation. You are expected to roleplay at all times, failing to do this is ruining the experience for others. You may only go OOC when a Moderator says so, else you are expected to continue roleplay. English has been notified as the only language spoken on the server. Please only use that language. We simply cannot moderate a language we do not understand. If a member of our staff team makes a decision, that decision is final. If you are unhappy, you are to use our appeals section on the forums or support center. If you feel that another community member is breaking the rules, you are not permitted to do the same. You may only halt your roleplay when a staff member declares so. This means that if you are unhappy with someone’s decision during roleplay, you must continue to roleplay despite having a report pending. 2. Disturbing Roleplay All parties that are involved in the situation must give their OOC consent prior to the roleplay happening, the situation must be conducted in a place that will not be found by people accidentally. If screenshots or video-recording of the scene is captured, all people involved must have their character names concealed unless permission is given from that individual. If you are to post any media regarding disturbing roleplay, it must be marked with a spoiler warning. All individuals taking part in the roleplay may back out at any point should they begin to feel uncomfortable. These rules apply to the following: Necrophilia Rape Pedophilia Cannibalism Torture 3. Accounts and Buying/Selling Activity All players must only have 1 account per person. Accounts may not be shared or distributed at any given time. If you currently reside with a sibling in which also plays the game, please gain approval from management. Roleplay Project does not allow the buying or selling of accounts, IC and OOC currency, properties or vehicles. If you are found attempting to sell any of these for in real life money, you will be banned and not allowed to come back to our server. All of the things mentioned above must be bought on the server, and only on our website for our OOC currency. 4. Metagaming, Powergaming, Deathmatching and Revengekilling Metagaming is not allowed. Do not mix OOC with IC information. Never Private Message your IC location to another player. You are not allowed to use third party communication software to speak about IC information. All information known IC must be transmitted only IC. Any information obtained by one character cannot be passed to another player's character. Powergaming is not allowed. Always give the other player the chance to respond to your actions, do not force actions onto someone. Please only roleplay things that are realistic. It’s important to choose your actions wisely as long as taking real life into consideration. Ask yourself what would happen in real life and picture the scenario in your head to determine what you can and should not do. Be realistic. Deathmatching is not allowed. When you want to attack another character you need to roleplay your actions with /me's and /do's with a valid reason. You are not allowed to kill anyone for no reason, there must be reasoning tied and simply because you do not like someone is not a reason. Revenge killing is not allowed and will be punished. When you die ICly (by PK) your character forgets everything that happened before regarding the situation you were killed over. Which means returning to the scene of your death is not liable nor realistic, please avoid going to the scene. That time that you were with whoever is just a void in your head. 5. OOC Scamming, Logging to Avoid Roleplay and ALT to ALT Trickery, scamming and lies must at all times be kept in character. None of the aforementioned may be carried out, out of character, or punishments shall be handed out accordingly. You are not permitted to disconnect from our server to avoid a situation, whether that be an arrest, robbery or any other situation that may put you at a disadvantage. If you need to log off in the middle of a roleplay, report for a moderator, and ask them if you are allowed to leave so either the roleplay can be passive rp’ed or voided. ALT to ALT is also not allowed. You may not transfer any of your items from one character to another by asking friends to help you out, or dropping items and leaving them for your other alt or anything of that sort. 6. Trolling, Internet Talk and Provoking Roleplay Project has a zero tolerance for trolling. If you are caught trolling and are here to ruin the fun for everyone, we may be entitled to punish you for it. Refrain from using smileys, short lettered or “internet” talk in a IC chat as in real life, we do not talk like that. Provoking any faction or member even if it’s law enforcement or not, is not allowed on the server. Do not attempt to catch their attention strictly to annoy or disturb them. 7. Bunnyhopping, Ninjajacking, and Refusing to Roleplay Bunnyhopping is prohibited and it's not very realistic. A warning is needed prior to punishment. You are not allowed to carjack someone without it being roleplayed. Don't go up to the car and just press "Enter" or "F" while someone is sitting in it. You may not refuse to role play and only a moderator may pause or stop a scene. However, we want to remind all parties that this is still a game in which we are all try to have fun while playing, so try to act humble in all situations. 8. Driver Drive By and Healing During Conflict You are not allowed to drive-by as a driver, you may however drive-by as a passenger. Car ramming without roleplay can also be classified as driver drive-by. You may in no way refill your HP gauge during fights. This rule also prohibits you from eating anything during the time you are in danger after being involved in a fight. You may however see a doctor or paramedics to roleplay your injuries but still may not return to conflict even if aided by a medic. 9. Bug Abusing, Hacking and Spamming You may under no circumstances use a server/script bug. Furthermore, you are obliged to report any bug which you come across upon accessing our server, no exceptions. The fight style named 'knee-head' also comes under bug-abusing, since it takes off a large amount of health. It is bug-abusing to use any command such as /pay or /frisk to figure out the ID of a masked player, or to see if there is a moderator spectating you at the time. It is also bug-abusing to take advantage of in-game glitches such as PIT'ing vehicles which are larger then you which is clearly unrealistic and is classed as bug abusing. Besides the commonly known ways of hacking, this includes utilizing any type of third-party program to somehow obtain an unconditional and unfair advantage on RPPy. Hackers will be permanently banned. Although your purpose may not be hacking, you should take extreme precautions when combining any third party software OR hardware with your MTA gaming in our community. If in any doubt, do not hesitate to use /report in game or to forum PM a moderator. They are here solely to help you. It is forbidden to spam the chat box as well as a player's private message system. This offence will generally result in a kick but persistent spamming could lead to harsher punishments. 10. Reporting Rule Breaking, Abusing the DMV Vehicles, and Inactive Properties You must follow the rules, even if you see somebody else breaking them. You may not break a rule in order to stop another rule breaker or a hacker. Whilst we advise you strictly to stay away from hackers due to the risk of getting banned along mistakenly, we always appreciate if you do /report or take screenshots and file a forum report. You may not take and drive the DMV vehicles for your own personal use. It is abuse and you may only use these vehicles for gaining a driving license. If you are inactive for 14 days your house may get sold with no chance of refund. If you are inactive for 21 days your business may get sold with no chance of refund. 11. Ban Evasion, Going OOC and Famous Names If you are banned in-game, you must not head in-game with a different IP address on a different account. This is classed as ban evading, and your original ban length will be increased. If you're banned on the forums (account ban), then you must see out your ban or ask someone on your behalf to post a ban appeal. Exceptions may be made in the case that you are unable to do this but you must not actively post on threads other than your ban appeal. and you are permitted to still play in-game. Only on duty moderators, and staff who are currently helping a player, may be considered out of character whilst on the server. You may only go out of character if you have permission from a moderator, for example when one is handling a situation of rule breaking which must disturb the roleplay of others. Whilst on RPP you must not use the name of a famous person to mimic or portray their character. If you have a famous name and did not purposely or are willing to change your name you will be permitted a name change free of charge and without an application being required. 12. Clothes System, Underaged Characters and Graffiti You are not allowed to have clothing from the system that are considered to be non-roleplay such as a spiderman suit, or some type of costume. Be realistic. You are not allowed to roleplay an underaged character as the character must at least be eighteen (18) years old. The graffiti system is not meant to be used as a way to spread nonsensical things around the game. Use common sense when creating something with the grafitti system, failure to do so will lead in a permanent ban from using the graffiti system, and in some cases a more severe punishment. 13. Weapon Licenses and Withdrawing Weapons It is prohibited to transfer a firearm or ammo which is purchased from an Ammunation or any other gun store in a legal manner to another player. No exceptions, however the guns may be stolen if roleplayed properly in-character. It is prohibited to own more than THREE of each firearm variety. (Only three deagles, only three colt 45, etc...) You must use the /me function to role play an exchange of arms in order to give your opponent a chance to react. There is an exception for small handguns and other melee weapons. This means that weapons such as Tec 9's and Mac 10's and any larger item (M4's and AK-47's especially) must be roleplayed along with explosives which also have to be roleplayed appropriately.

    Looks like we have had differing interpretations of the term skill gap most likely ,thus the misunderstanding. When we talk about skill gap, we don´t mean an RPGish type of a skill gap that is based on a player´s developed ability through a scripted feature. With skill gap we wanted to indicate the natural skill requirement that is needed to ride a bike fast or efficiently, thus the handlings are bit different than usually. It is always up to the player itself to learn the most efficient techniques to maneuver the bikes. The more you practice, the better you get basically. What comes to the turning of the bikes, that´ll be eventually fixed. I agree that many of them are horrible as of now, but they will remain somewhat difficult to ride, which doesn´t mean that we´ll make them super frustrating. To explain better why bikes handle the way they do, I´ve complied some information here. Quoted from the interwebs. So TLDR; Bikes handle awkwardly at slow speeds, but they can be just as good at high speeds. Then a personal experience of mine here; Few years ago I was doing a practice session at my local racetrack, which is known to be extremely technical. It has a lot of difficult medium radius turns and elevation changes. I was driving my low-powered production class touring car that day, and I was constantly passing sports bikes on the track. They would pull away on the long main straight, but the following corners I would always catch up to them. If we would have been on a faster track, this would have not happened though. In the following spoiler, you can find two videos. One is a lap @ Oschersleben with a car, one with a bike. Compare those two and you get the idea where a bike has an advantage, and where a car has an advantage. Note that the car has 5 seconds faster lap times around the track with slower turns. Hope this explained our vision bit more!

    Let me guess, you're commenting on me reaching out and asking to speak to you? I did this on behalf of Lartsa, Fraph and Samuel at the time. Instead of being upfront and talking to us, you backed out and threw some hateful comments towards us. I had to gather the information we were looking for, from different sources. Furthermore, you're failing to realize that I backed out of those conversations when asked to, but guess what? Instead of asking me to not say a single thing, Ertidog filed a complaint as the very first thing instead of talking to me. Post complaint, I never spoke a work in IST. Post complaint, Ertidog again complained when I spoke in the Faction Team chat (different chat) when Fernando was mentioned on an issue that I had spoken with Fernando about previously. His point wasn't getting across so I helped in that. You also fail to realize that Teams are supposed to work together, not against eachother and filing complaints like that really isn't helpful. Also, here's the kicker. I decided to be nice and ask every single team of their opinion about having access to their discord channel and whatnot and the /ONLY/ team having an issue was Illegal Team. Why? No idea, but apparently hiding behind closed doors is what they want.

    I don't know what planet you're living on anymore, but it was clearly stated that they were indeed and will remain on the same level as other team leaders. Illegal Support is just as important as VCT or LFT, or as you said, MT. They all have way different tasks and different ways they operate. They are not related to each other, yet it's expected that our Team Leaders get along with each other.

    Then why are some of you still on here sounding as-if you're bashing the development team? When I quit a server, I usually stop getting on their forums posting stuff all the time... I do occasionally stop by to see what's going on, then and only then do I think about giving it another go if I like what I have seen on the forum... I guess I am just old fashioned.

    "Don't worry"? It took you guys 1 month (Along with give or take 5 years of experience in MTA where everyone saw how servers died in the past), a major drop in PB and an announcement to decide to plan to post regular written down updates. I'm going to worry till that happens and even afterwards i'll continue to worry. "Writing down an update is not just taking our changes, pasting on a thread and posting. Our changes are written in a dev-language, on a repository." - What the fuck? Writing down an update is exactly as how you said it. Got a bug in vehicle system - > blinkers? Update-Bug fixes: Vehicle blinkers not working properly fixed. Well my god, so difficult, so time consuming. Someone fixed a bug? -> Write down in text document what you fixed, 1 week passes, post update. Oh my god, so difficult, so time consuming. Yeah, it's time consuming if you allow 400 changes to stack up and don't bother to write any update about it, yeah, that's time consuming. But, that's your fault for not posting them earlier. This post and why there haven't been any updates ragarding development just says that you guys either didn't care about posting an update or are lazy af to write one down.

    Arson Arson can be done in game without any Illegal Support Team (IST) approval necessary. The player must make a report in game and explain to an moderator the reason for said building being burned down. This is also one of the very few instances where molotov cocktails can be made. Some examples of a valid arson would be if the business is being extorted and said owner disagrees to make payment after threatening. Arson can also be gang war or CK related matters. The following must be present: The owner of the property must be online. There must be a total of on duty 2 FD and 2 SP members active. Extortion Extortion can be done in game at any time and requires no moderator supervision. If the owner of the businesses refuses to comply then retaliation against their property or physical punishment may be necessary. Bomb making Any and all bomb making roleplay must be sent to the Illegal Support Team via public contact where proof of the items being used is shown as is the in game logs of making said bomb. The Illegal Support Team will then review these logs and determine the results. All use of the bombs in game must be monitored by a moderator after being informed by IST of the bombs’ stability. Fencing If you come across stolen items in bulk and are looking for a place to sell it, the IST will purchase the items from you at wholesale price. In the future we plan to have characters in game who will go around buying and selling these stolen goods so that going to the forums will not be necessary. Drug production Anyone who wishes to produce drugs, whether they are in a faction or not, should first contact the Illegal Support Team via public contact where they will first inform us what kind of drugs are being made and what method they are using (ie hydroponics, shake and bake, etc). The IST will then work out quantities based on method and quality of roleplay. Harvests are limited to once per week per growhouse/lab and require logs of constant maintenance and harvesting. Vehicle Chopping/Exporting/Scrapping Vehicle chopping can be done by showing logs of the vehicle being disassembled for parts in game to a moderator. Moderators will consult the IST payout formula which takes into consideration the vehicle weight and rarity. A maximum of 2 vehicles are allowed to be chopped per week per player. Vehicle exporting must be first approved by the IST via a public contact. Players must show proof of purchase being forged for the vehicle(s) they wish to export. They must also properly roleplay having completed the necessary paperwork and precautions through the docks. A maximum of three vehicles are allowed to be exported per week per faction. Logs are reviewed and payments are given by IST. Vehicle scrapping must first be approved by the IST as it requires the faction using this method to have the proper industrial equipment and outlet for scrap metal. Scrapping is limited to 5 vehicles per week per faction. Logs are reviewed and payments are given by IST. Heists Any robbery or scam of any kind that exceeds the robbery rules of $15,000 will need to be first approved by the Illegal Support Team. These may include robbing a bank, ammunation, NPC ran businesses of high value or large-scale scams such as ponzi schemes. Players should include their method and reasons behind robbing/scamming and the IST will work out the details or even help you improve on your methods. If we feel you are incapable of performing such roleplay the request may be denied. Certain heists will need a certain amount of SP online but goes case by case. Government & Towing Faction Corruption All players who want to be corrupt in a government faction must receive approval from their factions leaders. Any and all denied or accepted requests by the faction leader must then go to the IST and LST with the reasoning behind it so that we can log who has permissions. Towing faction corruption must receive approval from the faction team. All corruption requests must include backstory of your character and the reasoning behind your corruption. You will also be asked to give a small amount of detail as to what you corruption might include. Government Faction Vehicle Robberies Stealing a government vehicle requires moderator supervision and at least 2 active SP members on-duty. The reasoning behind the robbery determines what kind of approval is necessary. If the robbery is premeditated, it must first be approved by the IST. If say you just murdered an SP officer and your only chance of escape is his police cruiser, then the robbery may be approved in game by a moderator. Keeping the vehicle for your own after the fact however will need IST approval. Looting ambulances is allowed however looting police cruisers is prohibited.

    Moderator You are not allowed to give disciplinary action to other staff members. Moderators and Roleplay Project staff member matters are dealt with internally, so no in-game punishment shall be given. If you wish to report anyone that is a part of our staff team, please submit a staff report via our user control panel. You are not allowed to execute moderator power over roleplay or situations that you are involved in. Ask another Moderator to step in and help sort the situation. If there is no Moderator online other than you, please try to have the situation handled on our user control panel if there are any issues regarding the roleplay. An exception to this is an obvious and clear violation of the server rules such as trolling, mass deathmatch, bug abuse, or blantat metagame You are not allowed to roleplay while on Moderator Duty. You are not allowed to pause your roleplay for Moderator duty, nor are you allowed to use your rank as a staff member to enhance your roleplay. You are not allowed to AFK while on duty. Go off duty before stepping away from the keyboard. This can avoid the confusion with players thinking you are available to take reports. You are not allowed to teleport or recon a higher ranking staff member than you without permission. Staff You should not utilize staff commands to benefit yourself. It is permitted, though frowned upon, to use moderation commands to correct server-issues or issues presented due to your handling of reports. For example, commands such as /gotomark, /gotoplace, /entercar, and sethp/armor may be used when going between roleplay and moderation duties. You are not allowed to break server rules at any given time. If players can't break them, neither can you. You are not allowed to take action (teleporting, etc.) on players without consulting with them first and having their approval. This is to prevent accidental actions which would ruin the player’s roleplay experience. You are not allowed to by any means treat any player or staff member with disrespect. RPP holds a high standard for their stand in terms of professionalism. You are not allowed to show immature or improper behavior at any given time. You must be professional at all times while representing RPP. There is a distinction between immaturity and simply having fun. You must always maintain a professional approach to all situations. While anyone’s life can be changing, the player’s experience partly relies on all staff teams. Thus, we require that you give your respective team leader a minimal three days notice if you wish to leave your distinctive team. Leaving immediately will decrease any chance at reinstating in the future. Roleplay Project has a zero tolerance policy on abuse. Abuse of any kind will warrant a removal immediately without the issuing of an infraction, unless overruled by Community Management You are not allowed to leak any topics spoken about in discord, TS3, or any where else when the ears are only meant to be staff. Team Leaders Team leaders are in charge of their respective teams and only their respective teams. They are not allowed to directly involve themselves into another’s team management unless given prior approval by that team leader. Team leaders are NOT moderator supervisors. Moderator team is essentially a different entity, however they must know moderator rules and guidelines as they supervise and take reports if they like. Optional, Team Leaders are not required to take regular in-game reports. Team leaders are allowed to supervise roleplay as long as they are acting within the scope of their team and not doing things for no reason. The commands given to team leaders are the equivalent to a senior mod but does not mean they can use them as they please. Team leaders respond to Community Management only and not to other team leaders or moderators. Team leaders are not allowed to punish players, that is the job of moderators to do so. Team leaders must notify CMT if a decision is big enough to impact the economy, playerbase and/or any other major changes of similar nature.
