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.
