- Before changing to a new job/a job that you are unfamiliar with, please read the rules relevant to the specific job (Located at the bottom of the rules list)

DarkRP Glossary:

  • Random Deathmatch (RDM) - Killing without legitimate roleplay reasoning - also known as freekilling
  • Random Tase (RDT) - Tasing without legitimate roleplay reasoning
  • New Life Rule (NLR) -Do not remember things after death from your past life (this includes job changes)
  • Fail Roleplay (FailRP) - Roleplay created that is not within the rules and is unrealistic. eg. Protecting a base that does not belong to you or the person you are working for.
  • Fear Roleplay (FearRP) - Actions taken that risk your own life/somebody else’s. FOR EXAMPLE - Someone has a weapon to you (this includes tasers+knives) and they are giving you an order (drop your wallet, unlock a door, etc) you must abide by their orders as you fear for your life. NOTE: If you are being held under FearRP and the person decides to shoot you, FearRP no longer applies, treat it as a gunfight from then on.
  • Metagame - Mixing your own knowledge (learnt out of character) with your character's knowledge. Ie. Hearing printers (or seeing sparks) or drugs being made and loitering around drug NPCs waiting for drug dealers, etc 
  • Powergaming - Forcing a player into an unrealistic or an unfair RP situation.
  • Double-dooring - Placing two doors (fading or world) too close (within a meter, or roughly the size of a 1x1 block) to each other.
  • Random Weapon Check (RWC) - Checking a player for illegal weapons for no reason.

Combat Engagement

You may fire at someone if:

  • - They have threatened your life (or the life of someone you are associated with).
  • - They are trespassing and you have given them 10 seconds warning.
  • - They are firing at you.
  • - They are hitting you with the climb SWEP or stunstick

Note: Any rules may be interpreted at Staff discretion. The MOTD is not exhaustive.

General Rules

Common Sense

  1. Don't disrespect other players in out of character (OOC). This includes being racist and/or sexually harassing players.
  2. Don't do anything/threaten to harm the server or players
  3. Don't involve yourself in Admin situations if you're not involved in the first place
  4. Using a bug/exploit to your own advantage will result in a ban. Report it to a Staff member so they can get it fixed.
  5. Don't attempt to prop climb, surf, kill, push or spam
  6. Don't ever take what needs to be an Admin situation into your own hands. Contact a Staff member via @ <message>
  7. Don't demote someone for an OOC reason if there is a Staff member online.
  8. You can demote for roleplay reasons (ie. Police Chief demoting a bad cop). Make sure you include “IC” in the reason and discuss it in OOC.
  9. Don't use OOC chat for roleplay reasons. Use /pm or /advert
  10. Don't use the job feature to spawn shipments for solely yourself (self-supply) or friends, or to gain an advantage (i.e police to get a gun); this is job abuse.

Building Rules

  1. When you are building a base, you MUST have a building sign (that clearly says ‘BUILDING’) out the front of your base in clear sight.
  2.  You are not in active roleplay while you are building - this means you cannot raid.
  3.  While you are building, you may not have any form of valuables. This includes shipments and printers, even if they are in your pocket. You may have guns equipped, but none in your pocket.
  4.  Don't abuse fading doors (using your physical keypad to activate them) in a roleplay situation such as a raid.
  5.  Keypads/buttons must be within a metre of the fading door that they activate. They must be in clear sight and unmaterialised/coloured and when activated must hold for at least 4 seconds.
  6.  A base can only have a maximum of two keypad activated fading doors. One can be used for an entrance, the other can only be used for a SEPARATE vault or small area for valuables. (ie. No hallway entrances with one keypad door at the front, and one at the end.) This means NO "kill corridors".
  7.  No force-crouch/jump entrances, mazes or traps.
  8.  You may prop-block an entrance leading to your base, provided there is at least 1 fully functioning entrance that is within the rules.
  9.  A fading door may only consist of a single prop so that police can batter it down.
  10.  You may have as many shooting holes as you like as long as they are all activated by buttons.
  11.  Shooting holes must be from hip to head height. If you are unsure, ask a friend or an admin to help you out.

  17.  Don't megabase (extremely large bases). We qualify a megabase as a base that uses more than one property.
  18.  Kill on sight (KOS) signs are not allowed. In order to kill someone for trespassing, you must give them an (or multiple) obvious 10 second warning that if they don't leave they are going to be killed
  19.  You can only build on roofs with admin permission


  1. You must wait 10 minutes before raiding the same place again. This is ten minutes from the END of the first raid, not the start.

  6. You cannot spawn props while raiding or being raided.
  7. Criminals/Raiders may take hostages to use against the Police Force to create fear RP, unless dictated otherwise by specific job rules.


  1. All Gangs and Thieves can mug. This does not require a leader present.
  2. You cannot request a specific amount of money while mugging. You must say "drop your wallet" or something similar, then the person you are mugging can make up an amount which they think they should have in their wallet and give it to you.
  3. Mugging can be done at any location in the map, it is generally advised you do this in deserted areas.
