Community Poll

In December 2017, we have introduced metagaming and powergaming which moved our server form dynamic roleplay to light roleplay. We have now experienced 3 months of light roleplay on Lawless Roleplay and are intereted in your opinion on whether we should stay light roleplay or not.

What if we stay light roleplay:
We will start enforcing metagaming and powergaming, punishments will be harsher (we expect that after 3 months of light roleplay, every player should atleast know the difference between IC and OOC). New administrative commands will be introduced which will allow admins to warn players through '/mg'. This system will be similair to our current deathmatch system. This system will be way more effective compared to our current warn/prison system. Our current system, which is mainly based on warnings will be adjusted to a new system where the focus would be more on teaching, e.g. the amount of prison time would increase every time you get warned for metagaming.

What if we go back to dynamic roleplay:
If we go back to dynamic roleplay, metagaming and powergaming will be removed from the server rules list. There would be no difference between IC and OOC and everyone is free to decide whether he wants to roleplay or not.

Should we go back to dynamic roleplay?

What do you guys prefer? Your opinon and vote matters, you can vote once please vote wisely.

Thank you! Should we go back to Dynamic Roleplay?...

Announcement Light Roleplay
[​IMG]

The Shift

Lawless Roleplay is a server made by players for players, we try making the server as amusing as possible. After a long discussion and community polls we have finally made the decision to switch over to light roleplay, moving towards a more roleplay environment as requested.

By changing our level of roleplay, there will be a few new rules which are being applied. These rules are metagaming and powergaming, more explanation will be given further below in this thread.

There are three different levels of roleplay associated with San Andreas Multiplayer, these are: light roleplay, medium roleplay and heavy roleplay. However, none of these levels were applicable on our server since the roleplay level we were making use of was dynamic roleplay.

Dynamic Roleplay

For multiple years we were a dynamic roleplay server, this was something unique since Lawless Roleplay invented this level of roleplay. We were not forcing our players to roleplay but we did give them the opportunity.

But sadly enough, most of the players did not roleplay because they were fearing other players would not roleplay with them either. By switching to light roleplay we're trying to stop that and make everyone able to roleplay and develop their own character(s).

With dynamic roleplay you had the chance whether not to roleplay or roleplay, ofcourse, many of the players did not roleplay and this is a huge disadvantage for people that play here hoping to have a nice roleplay experience.

Light Roleplay

Light roleplay contains two new rules which are metagaming and powergaming, this forces players to roleplay but at a specific level. This means you'll have to stay in-character unless you're talking through the OOC chat.

It doesn't matter what you are out of character, your character on Lawless Roleplay could be everything. From a famous rapper to a police officer or maybe even a drug dealer! What we're trying to make clear is that your character has it's own personality and style, let your imagination do it's thing.

Now since light roleplay will be enforced, players will have to communicate and roleplay with each other. However, you're still not forced to roleplay every single situation for example, taking out heavy weapons or putting your keys in the ignition.

New Rules

Since we are switching to another roleplay level which is light roleplay, there will be a few new rules implemented. The staff team will make sure that these new implemented rules get obeyed ofcourse. More explanation regarding these rules can be found below.

Metagaming is mixing up OOC content with IC content or vice versa. Everything said should stay in-character unless it's said over the OOC chat (/b) ofcourse. This does not allow players to talk about OOC situations for example through their cellphone or whispering. Examples:

Barney Phife whispers to John Williams, saying: Hey bro, can you check what I sent you on the forums?

Toompert Daman sees Immad Carter and starts shouting: Yo man get on our TeamSpeak 3 server!

You won't be able to give OOC information through the IC chats.

Powergaming is when you roleplay unrealistic actions, forcing others to roleplay while you're not giving them a chance. This rule does not let you make up situations that did not happen and gives every player a fair chance. This also includes roleplaying different situations which you wouldn't be able to do script-wise. Examples:

*Raz Barack picks up the truck, throwing it at Rio Flocka with his super powers.*

*Dominic Fontaine would be holding a magic stick that can kill everyone. ((Dominic Fontaine))*


Other examples are, getting tazed by a police officer but standing up and running away or roleplaying you don't have items on you while you do have that item on you script-wise. Same goes for healing, you are not able to do this in the middle of a gunfight obviously.

Failing to follow these rules has consequences, the punishments can be found here.

Frequently Asked Questions

Q: Does this mean we have to roleplay everything we do?
A: No, we'll switch over to the lowest level of roleplay which is light roleplay. We are not forcing players to roleplay every single thing that happens.

Q: Do we have to roleplay taking out weapons?
A: No, you don't. It doesn't matter what size weapon it is, since it's light roleplay, you're not meant to roleplay taking out weapons.

Q: When are we switching over to light roleplay?
A: We are switching over light roleplay from 14th December, 2017.

Q: What do we do now when we want to kill someone?
A: You must have a decent in-character reason before killing someone, failing to do so will result in a punishment.

Q: Are there any other new rules getting implemented besides powergaming and metagaming?
A: No, these two are the only added rules that comes with light roleplay.

Have a lovely day!

Announcement Halloween Update 2017!
[​IMG]
Hello Everyone,

Did you really think we forgot about the most awaited HALLOWEEN update? Ofcourse not! Today I am actually glad to tell you all that this, will be the very best Halloween you have ever had at Lawless. Special thanks to our Community Relation team, who worked day and night thinking about new ideas and rewards for the events so how could we not add that spark to make it perfect? Below is an overview of the update.

[​IMG]

Our mission statement to you...
Lawless Roleplay is, and always, will be a community first and a game server second. We are dedicated to fostering an environment with a member-centric approach where all players have equal potential for in game success and community recognition.

Why play here?
Lawless Roleplay was originally founded on the principle that all players should rise or decline based on the actions of the person behind the player. We feel that success should be determined by a players actions and talents and not the whim of an administrative team. We have great code. We have great staff. We have great players. But most importantly we have a vigilant regard for your potential.

Is this a roleplay server?
We have worked to provide many in game tools for roleplay and it is absolutely encouraged however not required. We feel that any preferred mode of play that does not encroach on any other player’s enjoyment of the game is productive. Due to the harsh nature of game mode frequent player versus player violent interaction should be expected. However, this does not mean that players are allowed to kill other players for no reason.

Halloween Update Overview

New Halloween Map

Community Poll

One of the hot topics right now being discussed in the management team is the current damage system. Our custom damage system allows us to adjust damages based on weather, skill, DM warnings, distance and etc. We can control which weapon is stronger to make the weapon dealing market more interesting and we can ensure the weapons reflect their true value.

The big question in this community poll is:

Should we keep the custom weapon damage system or use default linear damage?

Please vote in the poll above this thread in order to let us know which system you prefer and don't forget to write your opinions below!​

Thank you

Recently, there has been a lot of scare mongering posts claiming that this is the end for Lawless Roleplay. However, these people are wrong. Very wrong. I have been working very closely with the management team behind the scenes to transform Lawless Roleplay to a gold standard for gaming communities.

We will be doing this in multiple phases, with phase I focusing on restructuring the administrative team, training, procedures, progress and ultimately improving the quality of service provided to players by the administrative team. Once phase I is complete, phase II will commence and focus on improving the server feature quality and giving players more tools to create fun and interaction. There are more phases to this plan which will be released when they become relevant to the community.

However, to improve the community, we need your help and we are listening to your complaints and problems.

I am publicly asking that you click here and send me an e-mail with any suggestions, feedback, complaints or comments you have for us to improve our community.

Lawless Roleplay is very much alive and I have no plans to let it die any time soon. :)

LOS SANTOS POLICE DEPARTMENT
PUBLIC AFFAIRS OFFICE

[​IMG]
Good evening citizens of Los Santos,

Just an update from your local department in our development since our previous announcement. I can assure you that we have achieved in major aspects in the department since the restructure. There is always room for improvement but we have dedicated officers that are keen to do so.

Updates:

Divisional side:

Special Weapons and tactics have been assigned 30 members to be trained in strategic extensive training programs. This is known as an Elite division as it contains the heart of Los Santos in the most dangerous situations.

Training & Recruitment
Our Training Program has been set we continue to look to employ more training officers to develop our department officers knowledge and skills. The Administration has enforced a new reinstatement system so it would not be that easy to rejoin the department, reasoning for this is that we are looking for Quality rather than quantity.

Internal Affairs
This is the centre of each department there conducting regular work within the department ensuring that our officers are following the polices and procedures.

What have the department implemented since the new change?
- New Training & Reinstatement program.
- New Divisional Commanders.
- New Administration
- New High Command
- Manpower has been increased.
- Live Recruitments
- Issued new department equipment such as dashcams & bodycams for our officers safety.

Department Official Count:
[​IMG]

Do we have anything else to bring to the department?
Yes there are still plenty of ideas to be implemented to the department. I will not disclose the ideas at this time but once there implemented and become official we will issue an public announcement informing the public.

We strive on serving our local community if our officers cannot respect there community there are not welcome in our department we serve the public.
