Community Poll

In August 2016, we introduced a rule which specified that you had 10 minutes to kill another player for whatever valid reason. However, after the server wide rule review in September 2017, the 10 minute rule was removed.

So 2 months later, this rule is still a hot topic in management meetings which is why we want to ask you guys, what you guys prefer? Your opinion and vote matters, please vote wisely.

What is the 10 minute rule and how does it work?

If you have an in character reason to kill another player then you must do it within 10 minutes of the situation occurring. For example, someone steals your vehicle, tries to steal your vehicle, did not comply with a robbery, punched you or any other in-character reason. This 10 minutes can be extended if you are actively chasing them or after them (ie. been after this player for 2 hours straight). However, if you then decide to kill said player after a few weeks then it is no longer deemed a valid in-character reason and would be regarded as deathmatch.

There are of course exceptions to this such as gang wars, bank robbery, turfs and most wanted.

Should we bring the 10 minute rule back?
Please vote in the poll above in order to let us know which system you prefer and don't forget to write your opinions below!

Thank you!

Light Roleplay

We have always been trying to push the theme of the server to be as dynamic and fun as possible. Over the past few years, one of the most requested features from the community was to move towards a more roleplay environment.

We want to transform the gameplay to be more interacting and be turn based action. We have always been a server made by players for the players and with such big decisions like this, we would like to get your opinion and vote for what you want.

In short, there is 3 levels of roleplay commonly associated with SA-MP: Light, Medium and Heavy. However, we do not enforce any of the main rules for these themes so our dynamic roleplay style ranges from no roleplay to heavy roleplay. We want to change our baseline roleplay enforcement from no roleplay to light roleplay.

What type of roleplay are we now?
We are a dynamic roleplay server which is something unique to Lawless Roleplay as we've invented this ourselves. This style of gameplay allows players to either roleplay or not roleplay. As we all know, the human nature is to do the least possible to achieve the most possible and as a result most players did not roleplay for the fear that the other person would not roleplay with them either.

What do you mean by "Light Roleplay"?

Roleplay is the acting out or performance of a particular role. For example, you may be a school student in real life but when playing Lawless Roleplay, you might act like a police officer and do what they would do in real life.

This can be achieved by the actions, movements and words you speak. The sole foundation of this is by fully acting as if you are in that role in a realistic nature. This creates two realities 'in-character' (when you are acting) and 'out of character' (who you really are in real life). So for example, when you are in-character, you might pretend you are a 42 year old land builder but when you are out of character you are a 19 year old high school student.

For the experienced SA-MP player, you might of have joined many light roleplay servers. Lawless Roleplay's interpretation of this gameplay is completely different than all the other servers out there and we will be approaching it in a very unique way. Our focus is to make roleplaying as easy as possible by making the script do most of the hard work. This will be done by creating new physics and functions that will automatically portray your character of wishing.

Will the server rules change if light roleplay is implemented?
We have reviewed all our rules to look for changes in order for light roleplay to be successful. If the community votes to implement light roleplay then we will need to implement the following rules:
  • Metagame
  • Power gaming
What is "Metagame"?
Metagame (also known as MG) will not be allowed. This is when a player uses out of character (also known as OOC) information for an in-character (also known as IC) advantage.

Examples of metagame:
  1. You send a forum message to John_Smith to say you will kill him in-game. Forum private messages are OOC.
  2. You hear on the global channel that John_Smith is being arrested and you go to police to help John_Smith get free.
  3. You put a contract on John_Smith because he insulted you on Skype (Hitman Contracts)
  4. You use the name above a player's character to immediately assume who they are
Using VoIP programs such as Teamspeak, Skype, Discord and Ventrilo to communicate IC while in-game is strictly forbidden. The only exception to this is Lawless Roleplay's TeamSpeak or Discord server.

Hitman contracts must be in-character which includes the reason and the fulfilling of the contract.

It is also against the rules to use alternative characters to interact with your main accounts, gain knowledge from your main, pass on info and so on. Alternate characters must interact in-game with others to gain knowledge or carry out related tasks.

What is "Powergame"?
Powergame (also known as PG) will not be allowed. This is when you force someone or something to do something which you can't control; doing something impossible that you can't do in a realistic manner; forcing players to roleplay in your advantage; roleplaying things which are not possible script-wise so that you can gain an unfair advantage.

Examples of Powergame:
  1. John_Smith picks up a police car and throws it in the air
  2. Roleplaying that you have an item on you which you do not have on your character
  3. John_Smith kicks Jack_Smith in the head, immediately causing Jack_Smith to die
We also have an /attempt command to aid with this rule.

How do you plan to implement this new gameplay?
We plan on doing the following things:
  1. Add the new rules (MG and PG) with clear explanations. These rules will be more focused on rewarding players who follow it instead of punishing players who do not
  2. With the help of the admin and helper team, create multiple tutorials (including video and audio guide) on how to roleplay and how the new rules affect their current gameplay
  3. Hire upto 15 new administrators to not only police the new rules but to create roleplay events and gatherings for the community
  4. Create a commision of players and staff that will review the rule changes periodically and respond accordingly to what the community wants
  5. Create a team of players who will be placed into factions and gangs to spread the roleplay
What are the advantages for us (the players) if we vote to implement this?
  • New admins being hired and trained by admin personnel
  • Specific rules and clearly understandable
  • A new appeal system will be implemented to give players a chance to appeal the admin actions. The complains will receive a full revamp and will be much better than it is
  • We will focus a lot on scripting and make most of the things go through script, so it will be easier for players to manage their gameplay
  • Huge scripting updates with new things to do in-game based on light rp scenarios
  • We are also going to frequently use our mapping team to implement new custom maps
  • Amazing ideas along with the suggestion posted, that are being worked on
  • New turfs + perks being implemented
  • A huge new additional feature of more INTERACTIONS between players!

What are the disadvantages for us (the players) if we vote to implement this?
  • Extra rules to remember and abide by
  • These rules are subjective, so it may seem metagame for one player, but not metagame for another
  • These rules will put huge pressure on admins due to an expected influx of complaints on violation of these new rules
  • Need admin input in deciding cases if they are MG or PG or not
  • Less freedom of acting in-game such as, metagaming in public, shooting players for fun in crowded areas
  • In need of learning the basics of roleplay, if you do not have any knowledge about it

Any suggestions you may have are welcomed, so post below and our administration team will review them.

YOUR VOTE MATTERS, VOTE WISELY.

Wow lunatics!

After more than a year, we have managed to break our player record and have almost entirely filled our server for the first time after reaching 246 players. Thank you everyone!

[​IMG]
On June 13th, 2016, we have managed to raise our community and get 237 players online. Today, a historic day, we have managed to get 246 players online at a time! @Barney has mentioned that on many different threads and I would like to mention it again, it would never be possible without all of you. We have managed to bring a few several updates throughout the past year. We have had our ups and downs, however, we are now rising to the top, striving for the best - and that is again, by the help of yours. Thank you!

[​IMG]
As a celebration for breaking our server record, we have enabled the double EXP event. The double EXP will end after the weekend, on Monday (October 9th).

Announcement Property announcement

It has not been a secret that over the past years we have had some issues with property placement. We have always strived to apply the same rules to every individual, no matter who you are. Which is also why we have made the decision of putting one person in charge of all business and land placement. We have created several rules and guidelines for you which can be found here, reading them is a must when submitting a property location request.

As of this moment, you must submit a property location request in order to get your business and/ or land placed. Your property location request is hidden and only visible to administrators and you as a poster, this is to avoid anyone stealing your desired location.

Feel free to contact me for any questions or concerns and we will take them into consideration.

Greetings,
Rio.
