    Faction Rules and Information

    Faction Rules and Information

    You are expected to know these rules. If a rule is changed/added/removed, you are also expected to stay updated with it. Faction leaders are expected to ensure their faction is kept up to date on the rules.

    NOTICE: These rules are a supplement and do not replace server rules. You are subject to the server rules and their punishments, in addition to these rules. Any rule(s) you violate here will get you punished in accordance to the standard punishments prescribed by the server rules.

    Faction Moderator Rules
    • You’re a faction moderator, NOT a leader. You are there to overlook and supervise the running of the faction, nothing else.
    • Each faction is allowed to have one faction moderators.
    • A faction moderator is responsible for their own faction only. At no point are moderators permitted to interfere with other factions, they must instead contact the respective faction moderator, or the faction directors
    • Moderators should not be in other factions at all, unless they have permission from the faction moderator of the faction they are in.
    • Players are not the ones to pick someone as their faction moderator, however they are allowed to request a new one if they have a reason to do so. Moderators will be appointed by the faction directors. Any issues with faction moderators contact the faction directors.
    • Moderators are not allowed to interfere in IC things unless it is needed.
    • Moderators are not allowed to invite anyone into a faction unless the division which recruits members into the faction has tested and accepted them.(Moderators should request to see the Application, before inviting the player)
    • Admins cannot give a faction restricted skin to players, unless they have a decent reason to have the skin and have obtained the skin realistically.
    • Moderators are not allowed to promote players in factions at all, the player must be promoted realistically and in a roleplay manner.

    Faction-Wide General Rules
    • A player cannot have leadership over two different factions at once.(R5/R6)
    • Players must never be invited into a faction unless the normal invitation procedure is followed (roleplay must occur prior to the invite being offered).
    • Don't hire, fire/suspend or promote anyone without any roleplay involvement, unless the person has broken OOC rules and must therefore be dealt with in an OOC fashion.
    • Players can be reinstated to a maximum rank of rank 1. If the player cannot reinstate, they must join the faction as a rank 0. Faction moderator’s permission is required to break this rule, however a legitimate reason is required.
    • Rank skipping is not allowed, meaning faction members must proceed through the ranks properly. Faction moderator’s permission is required to break this rule, however a legitimate reason is required.
    • Promotion systems should be followed. This means that a player should not be receiving promotions easily or for no reason.
    • Faction Hopping is not allowed. You must wait a minimum of 5 days before applying to another/the same faction (the 5 days begin after leaving the faction). This rule does not apply to faction members transferring to the FBI from other LEO departments.
    • Faction tool abuse will not be tolerated under any circumstances. Specific examples include abusing tazers, radios, cuffs etc - every faction has its own form of tool abuse, you should be made aware of this.
    • Broadcast commands (/gov) must be used only for their IC intended purpose. Trolling in any form will not be tolerated, and will be treated as Non-RP behaviour.
    • Selling, buying or giving factions/faction ranks is forbidden (IC or OOC).
    • Players in a faction are only allowed to arrest or charge someone with a legitimate IC charge- you are not allowed to simply charge someone because “you are corrupt”.
    • You are not allowed to force someone to leave the faction unless the high command of the same faction does it himself. However, the FBI are exempt to this rule if the following rule applies:
    • Rushtazing:
    • Players are not allowed to own LEO/Faction vehicles, excluding the Cheetah.
    • High Commands (HC) in any faction are allowed to be corrupt.
    • FBI's National Secutiy Branch (NSB) Divsion and Internal Affairs Division in any faction are not allowed to be corrupt.
    • You no longer need admin approval to release prisoners from Area51, however there needs to be atleast 3 DOC members online at the time.
    • You no longer need admin approval to escape from Area51, however there needs to be atleast 3 DOC members online at the time.
    • Players must have admin approval to raid Area51 and there must be 4+ DOC members online at the time.
    • Law Enforcement Officer's can use OOC Radio to communicate IC.(R:)-

    Faction-Wide Roleplay Rules
    • OOC channels may not be used for any IC advantage. However, they may use it to clarify any in character information that was given over IC channels.
    • Detaining has to be roleplayed before typing the command to detain, and detaining suspects on vehicles which is unrealistic is not allowed (e.g. bikes).
    • If someone is in disguise within your faction, do not go to OOC lengths to reveal them. You must act realistically and use IC suspicion (if available) to attempt to reveal them ICly.
    • All roleplay situations involving yourself or your faction directly should be reacted to in a serious, literal and realistic manner. For example, hostage situations should be handled with the safety of the hostages and other LEOs in mind at all times.
    • You can put a player in temporary lock down (or prison) and it should be no more than 20 minutes (if left alone). However, an OOC agreement can be made between both parties to keep the player contained for as long as agreed. Either party breaking such agreement will be punished according to the rule of Powergaming.
    • If a person is casefiled and faces the consequences of said casefile, they have the right to file a lawsuit against the casefiling faction and hold a trial, through the Judicial Department.
    • Using screenshots as IC evidence must be supported by the IC actions of setting yourself up with sufficient technology. Try to screenshot this setup wherever possible to avoid unnecssary accusations or arguments at a later point.

      If you ‘die’, you must reapply your technology to continue using screenshots as IC evidence.

      Application of technology lasts until the next server day (00:00 IG), so long as the player does not die on the day or has the technology removed ICly.
      For example, if you roleplayed setting up evidence on the 16th of July, the roleplay would not be valid for the recording equipment on the 17th.
    • If an LEO is killed in relation to a casefile they have created, they are no longer allowed to involve themselves with the case. However, other faction members can if they have the IC motive to do so.
    • Factions cannot enter the base of the National Guards without informing them.
    • Players with 20 crimes and/or 5 arrests can not be hired unless they have received enough recommendations for the faction applied for.
    • Breaking cuffs must be done realistically. Shooting cuffs off is not a realistic option, as it would not work in real life circumstances.
    • Players who caused serious crime offense can be prisoned in area51 for 2 hours instead of 1 hour (You cannot have the reason "being corrupt" to prison someone for 2 hours and randomly add the charge, the serious offense HAS to be done in order for the person to be prisoned for 2 hours).
    • Players cannot be invited to a faction without an application unless the Faction Director(s) have granted permission beforehand.
    • If a player requires anything from an admin (e.g. faction uniform if they have RPly gained access to one), they must take screenshots to supply at a later point. This is vital, most admins can't check logs and will not be able to give you what you want without proof.

    Faction-Specific Information/Rules
    Factions must respect each other and they are not allowed to act in a way that would cause significant harm to another faction. If a faction uses another faction's facilities then they are not allowed to impede the faction that owns the facility or to play around in the facility.

    All factions must be mostly independent. Yes, the FBI may have authority over the SAPD during an active crime scene, but the FBI is not allowed to run the SAPD. The FBI and Government are the only factions that can punish members from other factions. The FBI needs a casefile to do this and the Judicial Department needs a trial to do this. No faction can promote/hire/appoint members in a different faction.
    The only time factions can command other factions' members is during an active crime scene, where the FBI can command all other factions involved in the scene (however, the FBI member must be R2+).

    • Casefiles against faction high commands must be approved by the respective faction moderators before the casefile can been executed.

    • The Government cannot run crime scenes or training but they can set up an operation for the state agencies and below.

    • Any OOC attempt to reveal a hitman is not allowed. This includes using /members (this is an OOC command anyway), /or or other OOC means. Stating over /or that someone is obviously a hitman because they aren’t responding in either the IC or OOC radio will be classed as MG.
