One of the growing problems we have is the placement and construction of lands. Recently there has been a huge public outcry to remove the land system and remove the eye sore that has been created inside of Los Santos. We have even suspended the selling of lands and land moves until we are able to resolve this issue.

Lands are an extremely beautiful thing and it is one of those unique features that makes us stand out as the gold standard server. However, they have not been looked after by both the staff team and the land owners and as a result, instead of showcasing the server as the gold standard, it is instead making the server look cosmetically ugly.

I strongly believe in the good that the land system can bring to Lawless Roleplay which is why I am against it being deleted. I strongly believe the way to resolve this issue is for the staff team, land owners and the community work together to resolve these issues as a collective. Our only objective here is stability and longevity.

Property Disputes
The community can now report any property violating the rules. The Department of Properties will review the dispute and then pursue it with the property owner on behalf of the server. This is not the same as a forum complaint but instead a reporting mechanism of bad property owners.

Once a player reports a property for violating the rules, property moderators will then review it and if valid, they will attempt to resolve it with the property owner via the Property Dispute Resolution Center. Other players are not able to see property disputes however everyone can see the property dispute resolution center for transparency.

Land Placement and Building Regulations
The placement and building regulations have been reviewed for lands. It is much more clear and less ambiguous. We follow these rules strictly and there is no deals or exemptions under any circumstances. These rules are black and white. If you find any property violating these rules please report the property via a Property Dispute form.

Land Placement Regulations

  • We measure the distance of locations by the running distance of skin ID 0 (1 running step = 1 yard)
  • Lands need to be in a realistic location. In real life, a developer could buy that land to begin construction
  • Lands must be placed on empty ground with no existing structure there already (This does not include vegetation unless there is a lot of vegetation there)
  • Lands must be 50 yards away from turf boundaries, jobs, server mapping, faction head quarters and any point of interest (ie. malls)
  • Lands must not cover or block roads, shortcuts, routes, parking, sidewalks or any public property
  • Lands must not cover or block other people's property or access to it
  • Lands must be at least 30 yards away from other lands
  • Lands must be on the ground
  • There can only be 3 lands visible in the minimap including the proposed land location

Land Building Regulations

  • Lands must be built in a realistic manner and follow the laws of physics. (ie. A staircase into the sky is not allowed, a building without adequate support etc)
  • Lands must naturally fit into the local environment
  • Garages/ Doors or moving objects must not be used as a supporting structure (ie. roof, wall or floor)
  • Lands must not be an eyesore for players
  • Lands must not cause nuisance for the general population
Please view the up to date land placement and building regulations here.

Business Placement Regulations


  • We measure the distance of locations by the running distance of skin ID 0 (1 running step = 1 yard)
  • Businesses must be in front of a realistic location (ie. exterior cannot be a house, a hill/ mountain)
  • You cannot place this business on somebody else's property without direct permission. They are allowed to revoke this permission at any time and if the property has a new owner, they can also revoke the permission at anytime. Your business will be seized until you pay for a business move
  • Business exteriors must be able to support the interior size
  • Businesses placed on a land need to have a realistic exterior. Just a door is no longer allowed. It has to be an actual building
  • Truckers must be able to access the the business door without hindrance
  • Businesses cannot be placed on server mapping, faction head quarters, job buildings and any point of interest
  • The same type of businesses cannot be placed within the range of 25 yards
  • Businesses must be at least 200 yards away from the trucking job
  • Business locations must not cause nuisance for the general population

Please view the up to date business regulations here.

These rules applies to all currently existing and future lands and businesses. In regards to what happens to them, we aim to resolve the matter with the owner so that both the server and the owner will be happy and satisfied with the resolution. Our aim here is not to punish owners but to work with them to create a better Lawless Roleplay.

In the past few updates, the feedback has been impressively positive from the community and we aim to continue this trend with this update.

When we opened Lawless Roleplay 5 years ago, we sailed the storm to create a community that was built on a solid foundation. The foundation consisted of a staff team that worked for the players to constitute a community made by the players, for the players. This foundation has resonated throughout SA-MP and we have set the gold standard.

Exactly 1,831 days ago - on the 22nd April 2013 - myself, @Shock and @Leiionidas opened the server gates to the public. We set out a mission statement and promised to always abide by it. We were congratulated by having over 150 players online in our first 24 hours. This past year, we've matured and learned a lot about ourselves and our strive to improve has never been this strong. As we go into our 6th year of operating, we have decided with the community to dedicate this year to creating fantastic new unique features, better support, an administrative team that is always there, a better service and most importantly more fun. This is a big promise however we are dedicated to accomplish this and require your trust and guidance.

It has been a marvelous 5 years filled with emotions, fun, excitement and addiction. We have witnessed enemies fight a lot, new friendships, gangs be formed, leaders be born, rules be broken, hackers be banned, materials be ran, trucks be delivered, miners mine, drugs be smuggled, shotguns be refunded, people tazed, turfs be won, events be lost, factions go up and factions go down. We have laughed, smiled, yelled, hated, loved and fought but above all we did what we came to do: We had fun, and the fun is only starting.

We have over 5,753,603 logins, 6,334,961 connections, 367,683 registrations, 32,285 hours of uptime, 28,329 hackers auto banned and most importantly we broke our peak player count with 248 players online on the 7th October 2017.

Thank you. You have supported us over the year above and beyond what I could imagine or want - we really appreciate it. Without your consistent feedback, guidance and loyalty - we would not be where we are today. You've always been here for us and we continue to enjoy and extend our relationship with you and hopefully create many more in this upcoming year.

So, here's to you Lawless Roleplay.... Happy Birthday!

Anniversary Update Overview

[​IMG]

You might be wondering why this update was not released on or before our anniversary date, I wanted to make this birthday very special so I set out to create a cool festive area with functioning rides as well as brand new minigames. The number five (hint: phife) is very special to me and the fact that Lawless Roleplay got to see five years of serving the community means an incredible amount to me. This update for me was not just about our birthday but as well as a renewal of my promise to finally take Lawless Roleplay to the next step. Unfortunately, I was involved in a little accident which left me hospitalized for a couple of days and there was still some bugs to iron out. So thank you for your patience and now let's party on...

[​IMG]

We have been riddled by poisonous players who can't handle the competition or heat so they resort to hacking. In the past, we have tried multiple different styles of approaching this and trying to resolve it. However I am very excited that after several meetings with management, administrators, players, banned players and current hackers - we have developed an unique system that will not only deter hackers but keep those who can't handle the pressure in check. This new system works in two parts. The first part is our continued commitment to form a solid administrative team who is vigilant.

From today onwards, players who have broken server rules in the past 3 months will not be eligible to join any staff positions, player recognition groups, lead gangs or factions. In addition, we have forgiven most players today and cleared player's punishment records. However, any punishments issued from this day onwards will be considered and will impact your ability to join the above groups until you have not been punished for at least 3 months. Here at Lawless Roleplay, we strongly believe in leading by example and we believe that this will encourage players to stay on the clean-side and will put a focal point on the best players in our community. Let's reward the players that can stay clean and not break server rules.

In addition to this fundamental culture change, we have introduced a new hacking rule. This rule is automatically enforced by the script and focuses on deterring hackers and keeping those who hack in check. When you are caught hacking, you will be given a hacking warning which will do the following:
  1. You will receive a hacking warning which will expire after 3 months
  2. You will lose 50% of all your skills
  3. You will be fined cash, bank money, materials, crack, pot and chemicals (including those stored in vehicles, houses and businesses) with a minimum fine of $75,000 per account level with a minimum of $1,000,000
  4. If after recovering those items above and the fine total has not been met, you will lose levels with each level worth $100,000 until the fine total has been met
  5. If the fine total is still not met then your account will be disabled
  6. You will be removed from your gang/ faction/ community recognition/ helper team
  7. You will be restricted from joining any gangs or factions for 42 hours
  8. You will be restricted from weapons for 72 hours
  9. You will be restricted from joining any staff positions, community recognition status or leading gangs/ factions for 3 months
This warning will expire after 3 months however if you receive another warning before the 3 months is over then your account will be disabled. Furthermore, if you receive more than 3 warnings in the space of 12 months then your account will be disabled as well. The system will keep you updated with how many warnings you have and when they expire. We have taken the difficulty of tracking these things by allowing the script to do the heavy lifting. Below is the logic of how the fine will be extracted:

  1. (The system will automatically stop once the total fine amount has been extracted)
  2. Cash+bank on hand
  3. Cash in house storage
  4. Cash in business storage
  5. Mats
  6. Mats in house storage
  7. Pot
  8. Pot in house storage
  9. Pot in vehicle storage
  10. Crack
  11. Crack in house storage
  12. Crack in vehicle storage
  13. Chemicals
  14. Chemicals in house storage
  15. Chemicals in vehicle storage
  16. $100,000 written off per player level lost
  17. Account disabled

[​IMG]
With such a huge reform, we know many players who have regretted their actions and would love to come back and play at Lawless Roleplay. We have banned over 24,000 accounts in the past year and at Lawless Roleplay we believe in chances. People make mistakes and we understand that. There are exceptions to this however, not every single person will be unbanned. We've lasted 5 years, and we want all the past, present and new players to experience everything in this community. So we're happy to have everyone back. We hope that this time you have learned from your previous mistakes and will become a contributing member to the community.

If you've never been to an amusement park, you won't be missing out any longer! Until 9TH MAY 2018, the Lawless Roleplay Birthday Fair will be open to all thrill seekers who wish to participate in the minigames we have at Marina. Players can also earn coins from these minigames (your current balance will always be visible below your on-hand cash) and then spend them in the Gift Store.

BUT wait, there is more! The coins you earn will be added to a total tally and will go towards your ranking in /topcollectors (spending coins will not affect your ranking). The THREE top players will receive the following rewards:

But hurry up since you can earn 10-20 coins and the faster you are, the more coins you will receive! We'll be waiting at the top with some credits for your troubles.

Color Match is a test of sheer reaction time and hand-eye coordination. Put yourself to the test in this fun minigame where the objective is to stand on the correct tile by looking at the color on your screen. If you read the word, you may just find yourself back at the dock. Winning this minigame rewards you 5 credits, and in the event of a tie all players at the end are awarded 5 credits.

[​IMG]
Ship Races are two random teams assigned to two ships fueled only by the blood of the weak! To make your ship go faster, your team must kill the enemy team. Each player is awarded two coins per kill, and everyone on the winning team get six coins at the end of the game.

Rule update: Metagaming and Powergaming.

Dear Lunatics,​

We have had large numbers of players who started opposing the new metagaming and powergaming rule. At first, we did not exactly know what to do since a large amount of players had voted yes on the community poll and after a very small period we were asked to remove the new rules. It would be wrong denying your request and we would not be following our mission statement, so we spoke with our group of old school members and to the committee. We have held several votes and the results were clear, the community poll has either been rigged or the players voted while thinking that it would bring something new as they were not aware of what the new rules would bring to Lawless Roleplay.

From now on, metagaming and powergaming have been removed from the offical server rules list.
[​IMG]

Recently, there has been a lot of scaremongering posts claiming that this is the end of 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 of 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. :)
