    • S08.04 - LOW EFFORT ROBBERY: [C] - Refrain from robbing another individual without some form of initiation and reasoning. The interaction requires reason in the past or in the moments prior to the interaction to validate the robbery. Upon completing the interaction, you are to vacate the area and leave the individual(s) unharmed unless they intentionally provoke or threaten you. Examples of valid reasoning are as follows:


    • Appropriate initiation:
    1. You must give the target indication that you are intending on robbing them and a chance to respond to it in roleplay.
    2. Proper initiation goes beyond interactions that are classified as: "Put your hands up, we're robbing you".
    3. It requires the interaction to be a back and forth roleplay exchange that allows for a two-sided scenario.


    • A few Examples of proper reason:

    • Invalid interactions:
    1. Low effort Scenarios that don't allow for reasonable counter play (I.e. Straight Driving off after you have received the goods)
    2. You are not allowed to intentionally target new players to scam them of their starter money.

    • S09.03 - CURRENCY TRADING: [F] -  You are not permitted to engage in the trading of virtual currency and valuables for real life currencies and vice-versa. Taking part in this kind of conduct produces a set of risks that could lead to scamming, however, also creates a illegitimate market that negatively affects the economy.

This includes but is not limited to the targeting of other individuals both verbally and otherwise. Examples are as follows:


    1. Going out of your way to bring out of character conversations into roleplay.

    • S10.04 - EARLY REPORTING: [D] - You are prohibited from joining the waiting room during an active scenario.

Any and all interactions are to be concluded in an orderly fashion. Refrain from initiating lengthy interactions and scenes with other individuals upon the announcement of the twenty minute mark. This is not to be used as an excuse to nullify an interaction or scene that was initiated prior.




    • S12.01 - VDM: [D] - You are prohibited from using your vehicle intentionally as a weapon to injure others. Engaging players with a vehicle will be considered vehicle deathmatch, as there are very few circumstances where injuring others with a vehicle is permitted. Avoid using vehicles to consistently ram others with the intent to grief or troll. We do allow for certain maneuvers to get a vehicle off the roads such as a pit maneuver. Ramming someone in speeds of 80 mp/h+ is not permitted unless law enforcement.


    • Incidents that would be excessive are as follows:

    • S13.02 - LOW EFFORT KILLING: [C] - You are mandated to engage properly in order to justify violent actions towards others. Should you have the appropriate reasoning to engage with force on another individual, then it has to be initiated with a roleplay interaction. You may not shoot to kill or harm unless you have given a fair warning to the other party.
      As the initiating party, it is your responsibility to make sure that your voice can be heard. 
      Do not kill someone without them knowing that combat is being initiated. Engage in combat as you yourself would want to be engaged upon. Shooting someone from afar because they were  hostile toward you earlier does not constitute initiation. You must re-initiate any hostile engagements. Do not pull up to an individual and just kill on sight the individual, create a scene that could be enjoyable and memorable for all parties involved. Failure to engage properly would be considered a low effort killing.

    • S20.01 - ISLAND ILLEGAL ACTIVITY: [C] - You are prohibited from selling narcotics on the island due to the lack of law enforcement presence and authority.
