    Account name: padpilot Character name(s): Pads_El Admin who issued punishment: Serthon Date of punishment: 18/07/2019 Punishment received: Permaban Reason given for punishment: Advertising Your explanation of what happened: Through ignorance and stupidity, I made mention of a competing community/server, one which other’s may not have been aware of. This resulted in me RIGHTFULLY receiving a PermaBan from Eclipse. I committed the offence once in /ooc (1st Time), once in /pm (2nd Time) to an officer, then I got banned. During my panic and confusion of being banned I rushed to the Eclipse Discord, I stated again why I thought I had been banned and yet again made mention of the community (3rd Time). This all happened within the space of around 5minutes. Why should your appeal be accepted?: I believe my appeal should be accepted for various reasons 1. I am deeply sorry for my past actions. I cannot stress enough how sorry I am for the actions which led me receiving a Permaban from the server. 2. Since being banned I have remained positive. I have been actively commenting on faction threads showing support for the hard work by others when displaying their RP on their own faction threads. I have helped multiple people OOC with editing and media creation which in turn they have used for Eclipse. I am also working closely with several high-profile organizations/groups/families to help create OOC content for videos and their own faction threads. I have commented and been active in discussions surrounding server suggestions and have remained relatively active within the Eclipse Discord Server. IMO, since being banned I have remained an active contributing member of the community. I enjoy Eclipse. I enjoy and like Eclipse enough that even during a Permaban I am staying active and wish to see the server improve and gain an even bigger player base 3. My past RP, overall, despite some very early on situations during my first PVP encounters on the server, I feel was to a decent standard. I was involved in an attempted Prison escape during only my second time in prison within a weak on the server. I started a virus outbreak in prison which successfully transferred to several people, DOC staff included I believe. At one stage, an admin even offered to reduce my prison sentence as I had displayed such high levels of RP during a police chase where I was caught and taken to prison. I refused and took the sentence to have an opportunity to RP with the DOC, where all those guys in the DOC knew I was down to RP. I also did something in prison which had never been done before or since to the best of my knowledge, proving I am also original in my RP. Shortly before my ban and being leader of a group of very very new players (58 at max) I was trying to actively run RP sessions for anyone unsure with their /me and /do whilst also running combat exercises in an attempt to decrease the number of reports that my organizations members were receiving. The very nature of the organization was to help with RP on the server, hence the RP based car restrictuions on members, although this gave us a gameplay disadvantage it was our RP to drive such vehicles and so EACH and EVERYONE of the members either had or aimed to have the appropriate vehicle, as they knew I valued RP and that I am here for group RP . 4. Going forward, I have learnt from my past actions and know now the consequences of my actions. Where once in my previous appeal I stated that "I only said….” I now know that the actions i did have the potential to be damaging to the server and I now fully appreciate the importance of “Advertising” and the impact this may have on the player moral and numbers and the server as a whole. I understand my actions were more than a mere "i only said..." and that i nevers should have disregarded my actions in such a belittleing attitude and should, at the time, treated my offence with the seriousness required. Post any evidence or further details Final Note: Collectively, I whole heartedly regret my actions, can 100% guarantee that these actions will never be repeated again and can state that I fully appreciate the nature of my ban, what I did wrong and what I must now do to put this to rest, to get back onto the server and RP my heart out. I don’t blame Serthon, hold a grudge against anyone involved and I would have acted the exact same way should I have been an admin and I too had witnessed someone break the server rules as I had. Thank you for your consideration in this ban appeal, your time is fully appreciated, and I hope to see you all in game very soon. P.S The 3rd time I committed the offence, in the discord channel, that was just extremly dumb of me tbf, I 100% should have realized by that point how saying it again was just making the problem even worse, no excuse except stupidity on my part. Just also wanted to state that i have re-read the server rules. Thanks, Pads_EL.

    The Product One of many perks of being affiliated with a Mexican cartel is direct access to some of the most pure narcotics on the planet; one in particular that tends to stand out though, in terms of popularity and profitability is cocaine. In a recent DEA drug threat assessment, it was released that Mexican drug cartels are able to maintain a major trafficking footprint in the United States; this is done through proxy groups such as ours. The Plug A small unmarked Cessna lands at an undisclosed location in the San Andreas desert, equipped with several suitcases loaded with signature marked bricks of cocaine from our suppliers in Mexico. Met by one of our overseers, we would spend the afternoon discussing business and unloading the suitcases, eventually carefully transporting them back to the city of Los Santos. Once back in the city, the two men in charge of the drop would meet up up and discuss their plans on how to move the product to an up and coming local street gang, looking to branch out. The Drop As the sun set, the call went out; the product is packaged, and ready to deliver to the buyer. Details were discussed, and terms agreed upon for the keys, both would send out small groups to finalize the deal. The Zetas would be waiting at an undisclosed location, soon met by the local street gang. Some small chat would be made, but the situation would be fairly direct, closing the deal out and creating further relations between the two groups, ultimately making a hefty sum of money for the Los Zetas.

    The Cabrones Cleaning Company look to get back into the swing of things. Their initial start in the city has been rough, but it seems like their luck has finally begun to turn. After a long day of going around and offering their cleaning services, they stumble upon a general store. After further inspection they notice a lot of people inside the general store, including the store owner. Chaz Letwo and Chaz Lethree decide to approach these unknown people, who were speaking chinese with masks covering their faces. They offer their cleaning services, and after much deliberation the store owner agrees. Chaz Letwo and Chaz Lethree get to work. They start off by cleaning away all the filth and dust from the store windows, before ultimately dusting the edges of the store shelves. After finishing up with the store windows, Chaz Lethree and Chaz Letwo move onto scrubbing every inch of the store floor. They encounter some difficulty removing a strange dark spot on the floor, but with the help of their life long experience and secret cleaning formula they manage to clean it away. Chaz Letwo and Chaz Lethree finish cleaning the entire store. The store owner inspects his surroundings in awe, as the general store is shiny and spotless. He thanks them for their hard work and encourages them to take a free donut on their way out.

    Jack Hawk Born on 30/11/92 in Wales, UK. Jack lived a good and full life as a kid until the age of 12, when he returned home after being out with friends to find both his parents had been murdered in their own home, after that he had to move to London with his old grandfather. From that point on Jack's life just fell into a spiral of drug abuse and crime as he just couldn't get his head around what had happened back home, he found himself meeting people in his life of crime and ended up joining a gang in London at the young age of 14. three years on his grandfather fell ill and passed away of cancer within the year, with Jack still being to young to live alone he had to still live with relatives, but there was no close family left in the UK, the only person that could be traced back to him was his father's first son who was given away as a baby. The first born son was only 21 years old himself, but nevertheless classed as an adult, when asked to have his baby brother that he never met he took up the challenge and was excited, that's when Jack moved to Los Santos as that is where his brother Jesse lived. Los Santos When Jack arrived to Los Santos he thought he would have to clean up his act and get back on track with the life he once lived for his brother to keep him, he didn’t want to have to move again enough was enough. But it turned out that was not the case, little did he know his brother Jesse was also in a life of crime and also in a gang called The Wanted, They were a street racing gang who repped the color orange, Both clothes and cars. Jack was welcomed to The Wanted with open arms and given his orange bandanna and keys to a new car his brother won in one of his many street races. Jack Hawk was now in The Wanted. War Broke Out The Wanted had a good relationship with all other gangs in the city, their best relationship was with the Irish Mob and when they came calling for help as the city was about to go to war, The Wanted decided to help. . The war went on for some weeks with a lot of blood shed from both sides. As the war was ongoing Jack found himself rolling with the Irish boys more than his own, hunting down Zetas and Clowns came as a daily job, but as the weeks went on The Wanted realized it might have been a bad idea backing the Irish Mob as they still had friends in the Zetas on the other side. They soon decided to pull out of the war that then left it very lopsided, as Jack had made many good friends through the war with the Irish Mob he felt he couldn't step out of the war leaving his new friends in dangers all alone, he had to make a decision and make it fast. As The Wanted and the Irish was on very good terms he knew there would be no problem and told his brother and the higher ups in The Wanted he would be removing his orange and putting green on to keep fighting the war he thought that needed to be fought. From that day on Jack Hawk was now in the Irish Mob. End Of The War Jack and the Irish still kept fighting the war as long as they could with help from Los Calaveras and The Marcello Family, but it was still not enough and the war slowly came to an end with Los Calaveras losing high ranking members through death and being deported, Marcello Family went into hiding and the Irish Mob had themselves a betrayal within the gang with one of the higher ups turning his back on the boss Dwayne Donavan. The betrayal left the Irish scattered with Dawayne and the other leaders disappeared off the grid for a while, for what remained of the Irish they were still being hunted by Zetas and Clowns, And had no choice but to drop the colors and tell people the Irish was dead. The leftover Irish met up with the highest member left, Neil Fergus and he told them that he had heard Dwayne and the others had started up a small crew and would only take loyal and trustworthy Irish members with them, but after the betrayal they did not know who to trust or not, Neil told them to stay low and he will get in touch with them if he gets hold of Dwayne. The Rooks After keeping low for some time, Jack and the other Loyal Irish got a text to meet at what would end up being the new HQ of the Rooks, Jack got there and got put into his new uniform and stood there with the other new recruits, Jack looked up and down this new line of recruits and realized even though there were a few old Irish boys there, There was a lot that was missing, Dwayne told everyone that the people who got the text was trustworthy and everyone else who didn’t they were no longer with us, as this was not the Irish anymore, It was The Rooks. The Rooks grew big in numbers over just a few days, with new recruits, old Irish, and a few Los Calaveras that escaped death during the war. Jack never felt so at home so quickly, but even though the Rooks was growing so well and getting noticed in the city bad news would strike just a few weeks in, as boss Dwayne and the other founders of the Rooks decided it just was not the same anymore and decided to disband the Rooks just like that. Jack and other members of the Rooks met up at the HQ so confused as what had just been told to them. New Leadership And New Role Jack Hawk and many of the Rooks said they would not leave, And wanted to continue doing what they were doing, Dwayne came to reason and decided to pass down the role of boss to someone else and let the Rooks live on. The new leadership was passed on to Dmitri Leroy, Jack had only heard the name of Dmitri before and not met him in person as yet, Jack had a lot of thoughts going through his head, would it still be the same, would he still feel safe in this family if it was run by someone other than Dwayne. Before Dwayne left he give a little information on everyone to Dmitri so he knew everyone he was now in charge of. Jack met with his new boss and a few other members and was told he was wanted in the Rooks and that he was thought highly of through what Dwayne had told him. Jack was given the role of Pit Boss by Dmitri and given his black Jacket, Jack then knew he still had a place here and a big role to play. After getting his new role as Pit Boss Jack Hawk knew he had to step up now and show other Rooks how things were done correctly and with respect. Current Situation Jack has now been in the Rooks from the start, and the Rooks have now grown so much since then. New members, new ranks within the crew, and strong relationships with other big gangs within the city. Keeping them themselves in the know of any upcoming gangs is also a big part of life in the Rooks making sure the smaller gangs know who is on top. Jack and the rest of the Rooks meet up with a new upcoming gang and demand they pay taxes to them to keep the peace, as new smaller gangs will be taking up drug labs or robbing shops making it a bit harder for the Rooks to operate so the Rooks make it clear it's taxes or war. . Along with getting taxes from the smaller gangs, the Rooks still have to make tax payments to the bigger gangs in the city themselves, so Jack and a few more of the Rooks keep making money any way possible if its setting up their own drug lab or controlling chop shops to make the money.

    Its not about the fear rp or the thing you didn't back off. Its about the thing that you did not follow the RP as I was did the following rp of holding the hostage tightly against me and pushing him out through the doors slowly. You sprayed me and my friend and whilst spraying following the rp you would of killed the hostage. Thats the reason we are doing this report as in of fail rp of your side. You sprayed us down whilst I was typing, and that was a bit of powergaming, as there is no script command for me to hold the hostage against me defending my body from the shots, but yeah.. I suppose you are LSPD and you are some kind of snipers, and you know how to aim and shoot only to side of me, without hitting the hostage, wp. 🙂

    First, an “E” Menu Currently, after purchasing an Island all you can do is build on it. Pressing E on the Island property marker doesn’t open up a menu like other properties. Which means you cannot sell it or interact with it at all. Ideally it would be similar to others, with a [Sell] Option and a small window with the property name/owner status. Second, the /attachfaction cmd. I am unsure if Islands will even be able to be attached to factions, but I think they should be, attempting to build an entire island by yourself is tedious, and somewhat unrealistic even. I think it would be nice if Official Factions had the ability to attach the said properties to the faction to allow other trusted personnel to work on it as well. Lastly and most obviously... I’m well aware this issue effects a small percentage of players. I’m also aware Islands are fairly new to the server and most of what was mentioned could very well be in the works already! I hope I'm not pestering/looking impatient about the features, I just hope to have some more to do with the property as a whole! Hope to hear feedback and comments. Thanks for your time 🙏🏼

ID 39 14. Deathmatch (DM) ● Deathmatching is the act of attacking a player or their property without a proper roleplay reason. ● Examples of valid reasons to attack another player: • If they attempt to arrest or hurt you, an ally, or damage your property. • If they report you to the police for a serious crime. • If they are not in compliance with demands, attempt to escape, or call other players for help in a situation where they are required to display fear under fear roleplay rules. ● A player cannot kill their victim if the victim is in compliance with the demands. ● A player must allow their victim enough time to comply with the demands. ● You must give demands via text if used as a reason to attack as VOIP isn’t always heard. ● Vehicles cannot be used to attack another player more than once including a failed attempt. ● Kill on Sight (KoS) is the act of killing a player with no engagement in roleplay. The person who has KoS rights must have evidence prior to committing the kill. ● Killing a player without warning or roleplay is allowed only within 24 hours of: • Your life being threatened not including law enforcement aiming weaponry. • The life of your friend or ally is presently being threatened or if you have witnessed it happen. • A player attempting to steal your assets worth greater than $75,000 not including vehicles. How did the player break the rule(s)? ID 72 had a gun pointed at them by ID 37, and pressed her panick button. ID 39 Ran me over while I was running and injured me. Claimed desync but he was driving at that speed toward another person, this shows little to no care for whether I live or die. Evidence of rule breach:

    The first meeting: The brothers held their first official meeting since all of them have arrived in Los Santos. The meeting spoke about their affiliation with certain other gangs in the city and where they stood. The spoke about their job offer and what they should do with their income of cash. After a long talk, the bothers decided to keep focusing on raising funds for their family Curry Restaurant. Not only that, but Popadom Patel, was shocked to find he'd been promoted after careful consideration, he accepted his new rank and the responsibility that comes with it. The trip to the Hospital: Of course, the problem with a gang of brothers, is slight sibling rivalry. While everyone was happy with Popadom's promotion, it appeared that Punani and Pinini had a small disagreement and of course, it resulted in a small fist fight to put the other in their place. It so ended with the brothers needing to call the hospital for their brother Pinini. The cop problem: Then unfortunately when attempting to leave their meeting location, their sibling Pinini called out in distress over the radio, he was in a foot pursuit with some cops who were chasing him because he'd stolen a car to get back to them. Though tensions were high at the moment with the recent argument, the Patel's would never leave a brother behind. They coordinated their ranks and formulated a plan to save their brother from prison. While the officer was heading to Bolingbroke Prison, the brothers, with the help of their Triad friend, jumped the officer and forced him to release their brother. They continued to cuff the officer with his own handcuffs and push him into the boot of his cruiser and lock him in there. A job well done: Finally, the brothers were able to retire to the Wong Dynasty store, where they are employed, and relax after the whole ordeal.

    I think that pocket money should actually be in your pocket. There are many reasons that this would be an improvement, but these three immediately spring to mind. 1) when being robbed it is not very RP to "pay" the robber, the robber should be able to take some, or all of the cash, straight from your pockets while frisking. 2) when renting a property, the renter could leave the cash in a prearranged cabinet or safe for the landlord to collect, meaning they do not need to be online at the same time to pay/receive rent. 3) when running a club/bar/casino the owners and operators should be able to store away excess cash in a safe, to save carrying too much on them. These are all standard practices in the real world and should really be RPd the same way. I think cash should stack up to $50k per slot allowing up to $900k to be carried in the 18 inventory slots. In real life money, $50k in $20 bills, would weigh just under 2.5kg (2.467kg as each bill weighs 0.987 Grams). This means $900k weighs just under 45kg (44.415kg). Again this is very close to maxing the inventory weight. so it all works out well.

    The fairest system I've seen is that a faction can propose war to another faction, with a very strong in-character reason, and if the other faction accepts, a win condition will be set, that both parties can agree to. It can be something like kill both leaders once, or capture a specific vehicle from the enemy gang. The winner will win a predetermined thing such as cash, cars or turf. (Note: the proposal, win conditions and prize are agreed upon OOCly.) If war is agreed and started, both factions can now KOS each-other, while all other rules apply. (NLR, MG, etc) I feel that this system could work very well here.

    I agree, this definitely gets abused and there is no need for a cop to be able to search an ID if they have the players name. It also reduces the bullshit of charges being placed while being masked. +1

    Just a note, this has been a consistent recommendation for at least 6 months. There are countless threads on it. It would be nice, however, to get a dev/admin to at least state why they refuse to add more space. It seems like a pretty obvious need for the community (and directly helps the scam situation talked about recently). Then at least we could have a meaningful discussion with understanding of what the devs see as the issue/concern.

    "Icons" , as the name states , was a former group of powerful people, from politicians , governors and commissioners to kingpins , dons , hitmen and the list goes on. There was so much corruption that they were not even hiding from the public. You would have seen the mayor talking with a drug lord over a cup of coffe , downtown Los Santos. This was all back in the 60'. Disputes started between the members, gang leaders started throwing attacks on the City Hall and all LSES employees , creating one of the highest death rates the State of San Andreas has ever had. After all of this , the realationship between these two different worlds has ended, and the organization faded away...... or at least that was what everyone thought. At this very moment , after almost 60 years , a young man called Dominic Santacruz , former cartel leader and with great ties among Mexico's drug lords , has decided to restore "ICONS" glory and lead it to new and wealthy ways. When this young hustler is not taking care of the organization business by distributing the goods to his fellow members , creating profit , expanding the business and seeking for opportunities........ .......He is training at his boxing club , "Fight Club" , downtown Los Santos. Place where he trains his body and mind, putting up a game plan preparing for the next step in conquering the city and becoming one of the most feared and untouchable organizations. This club is also a place of partying and relaxing , drinking and watching fights , but all of this is just a cover up for when they are talking business. Right now he is mostly by himself , depending on people that come and go, surviving the day and hoping for better tomorrow. 📌Recruit a small team of trustworthy people to start with. 📌Get a great "connect" in order to recive higher quality and quantity in goods. 📌Become a known name in the city as an organization. 📌increase your profit rate. 📌Start recruiting more people and educate them in order to expand the organization reach 📌Rebuild the strong ties between the two worlds At this vey moment there is no ranking system or ranks decided, beside the very begining: Chairman Underboss Wannabes Note: Fight Club is currently used as the HQ where you can mostly find members and talk about recruiting. (check the link on the text for its location) Minimum experience required is 5000

    The evidence was posted within 48 hours but someone deleted it 🤷‍♀️. It was originally here. A moderator was consulted before this report and agreed that the evidence was posted in time. That rule is to prevent people holding it back and reporting when it suits them, that's not what happened here. Not at all. You're expected to not metagame with them though! All I can suggest is before creating a frivolous DM report, where only 2 violations result in a permanent ban you ensure you're following the rules yourself! Appreciate the reply though @zatefeto, let's see what staff say.

    I do think that asking somebody that is injured with /me and /do should be a thing as the person who is already injured has no way to resist and the person picking up the injured player can do whatever they want with that body as they are injured. Having a /carryapprove is what we need. Yes I know that adding a command like that and an action timer would change RP scenarios in a good and a bad way. The bad way is that in a shootout you need to approve to be carried and be moved and this will cause a lot of scenarios but carrying somebody that is lying on the floor in real life is not that easy and therefore I do think that there should be a timer also added to the approve command! This solution will cause some good RP scenarios!

    The current furniture location for me it is not the best, as the furniture store has alot of furniture inside and the building it's self is really small, so I suggest changing location. Current Furniture store and it's location : Suggested furniture store building and it's location : For me this building is big and it looks like proper store. Furniture store shouldn't look like grocery store, It has to be big! Let me know your thoughts below!!!

    Hello, ID 142 here. After seeing this POV i understand that my actions weren't showing adequate value for my life and i did in fact breach the FearRP rule. I just want to formally apologize to the reporting party and all other sheriffs involved in the situation for how my actions could have affected the RP scenario. At the time i wasn't looking behind me in third person and didn't realize how close the officers were with their weapons but in this video it is evident that I messed up. If the support staff deems this as a strike i fully understand. If anymore responses are needed from me I'd be happy to reply.

    This is a well presented case of how unrealistically the rule works in reality on the server. At the current state of the rule there is no point to try to stop or give demands to anyone who is sitting in a vehicle with its engine on, because the player does not have to comply as they are not under FearRP. Considering the fact that the whole concept of the FearRP is to make sure that you have value for your life, then this specific section of the rule does the opposite - it gives the invincibility factor to the player. In a hypothetical scenario where you are sitting in a car with engine on and an individual approaches you, pulling out his weapon, aiming at you through the passengers window and demanding you to get out of the vehicle, you are not considered to be under fearRP rule, so you just hit the gas pedal and drive 100m ahead. What has happened at this moment is - the individual has triggered a "valid DM reason" as he tried to rob you, put you in harms way by aiming a weapon on you, so you either get out of the car and kill the person or you turn around and ram the person in whichever way you want. The example given above shows how does these two rules interact with each other, nullifying one and boosting the other. It also shows both rules conradicting with each other because you have a valid reason to attack as the individual put you at harms way, but seconds ago you did not have to comply as you were not assumed to be in any danger. And it all is just due the simple fact that for some reason a vehicle seems to be considered as a tank. I do understand the whole idea how this rule was made and I do not think that there is any blame to it as it is a correct idea, because you could be able to run away in certain situations. I, myself, believe the problem is in the fact that when a report happens there is no distinction between direct way the rule is written and analysing the situation by using common sense. I have seen RP servers, especially in SAMP where roleplay term "Common Sense" aka "CS" is used and is part of the rules. I could see why it is not used here as it would end up being just matter of opinion and understanding of the same situation, but in different ways. Nonetheless when it comes to RP where we try to imitate RL in a game - CS is what puts it apart in every action we do, in every rp we make, at least for some of us. As the original post has explained - either have consistency and clarify "Sorry, but yes, this is how it works" or do some adjustments.

    I can agree that the rule does need tweaking. In my opinion, the rule is worded like that to prevent people from trying to rob others in cars because it's so easy to disable a car with a single gun shot (not realistic at all). If the rules were flat changed to allow a robber to shoot at someone in a car, then there is 0 opportunity for someone to legitimately escape if cars are disabled so quickly. As soon as the gun comes out the other party has no option and the "hands up rob" mentality will only get worse. To combat this, I think we would see civilians (and some criminals) fleeing for their lives as soon as they see anyone remotely getting near them (does this already happen?). I understand Los Santos is a hyper violent city but closing this "loophole" will further make civilian life worse and they shouldnt have to be watching their back 24/7 even in the pseudo safety of a vehicle. I dont want to prohibit people from robbing others but chain crimes/robberies and broad daylight/public area robberies are low RP but not necessarily NonRP. On the other side, Fear RP rules state just some examples, not all. If someone is completely boxed in and has no where to flee, it's time to give up whether your car is stalled or not.

    Hello, ID 58 (Dexter_Mahone) here. Unsure where you think I DM'd you. I get off my bike, aim my gun at you (you do the same) and gave you demands (ID turned green). We both went for our gun at the same time, I was facing you when you aimed a gun at me. You were a threat to my life so I put you down after telling you to put your hands up. Examples of valid reasons to attack another player: • If they attempt to arrest or hurt you, an ally, or damage your property. Also, interesting to see that once downed, you have the ability to radio out to your crew that you are in need of assistance, moments before dying. In my eyes this is a clear breach of Fear RP as you are basically calling for backup with a gun aimed at you. As a victim, whose life is in direct danger: • You must display reasonable value for your life and comply with the demands of your attacker. • You cannot call 911 or call your friends or allies to aid you. I will only respond to the staff member dealing with this report. Any questions, let me know, thanks!

    yea its just too hard to script all crime... its pretty unfeasible, I still think like... current ncz's having "working hours" so they are only nczs during the hours people would be there... then having more nczs wouldnt be crazy because they would be like more crime areas as well because current nczs would be cut in half... also would solve the problem of people parking in nczs because their cars could be stolen at night (realistic) and it would add pressure on people to watch the time and be like "cmon man we gotta get outa here people are going to show up soon" as 8 am rolls around at the bank... could create a lot of interesting role play opportunity.

    Thing with that is that it's hard to prove in a report, better to take away the enabler to the problem rather than wait for the problem to ensue (IN THIS CASE)

    Date and time (provide timezone): 18/Sep/2019. (Bug's been all day, maybe even earlier then it, no specific hour or minute) Character name: Jason_Nightwood Issue/bug you are reporting: Marijuana seeds plantation zones not showing up as they used to in drug labs after the option to display them is selected. Expected behavior: The plantation zones should have large white boxes indicating to players where they can plant and where they can't. Evidence, notes worth mentioning, steps to replicate: Simply walk upto any drug-lab menu and press the "Display markers" option, it'd notify you that the plantation area's been marked with white boxes, however no markers or white boxes are present. Vehicle license plate number*: N/A

    Hello, and thank you to everyone who responded with their side of the story and explained the reasoning for their actions which can be seen in the provided evidence above. After extensively reviewing the provided evidence as well as taking the statements of all parties involved into consideration, i have decided to conclude this report. Player Jack_Jordan will receive a Deathmatch punishment | Offense #2. To start off, i would like to address the punishment of Deathmatch and the reasoning behind it. In the provided evidence of this report, it can be seen that you give the reporting party multiple demands to exit the vehicle. In turn, the reporting party decides not to comply with said demands and instead drive away. As he attempts to escape the situation he is ultimately fired upon by you. The issue that arises with this situation is that your actions are not in accordance with our Deathmatch rules. It is very likely to assume that your reasoning for firing at the reporting party was due to his decision not to comply with your demands, however the current Deathmatch rules state that failure to comply with demands may only be used as a reason to attack another player if said player is in a situation where they are required to roleplay fear under the fear roleplay rules. This is not the case here, as the reporting party was not required to display fear or abide by the fear roleplay rules. The reporting party was situated in a vehicle with an engine which was not turned off or stalled, and as per the rules surrounding fear roleplay he was not required to display fear nor abide by the fear roleplay rules during this situation, thus making your seemingly valid reason to attack the reporting party insufficient and invalid. It does not matter how close you were to the reporting party at the time of you aiming the weapon, as the fear roleplay rules makes it amply clear that if you are situated in a vehicle with an engine which is not stalled or turned off, you are exempt from acting under the fear roleplay rules. In short, if someone is situated in a vehicle with an engine which is not stalled or turned off, they do not have to abide by the fear roleplay rules and they cannot be shot for non compliance. I appreciate the fact that you were apologetic and sincere about this situation, as well as ensuring me that this will not repeat itself in the future. It is however ultimately your responsibility the moment you begin playing on the server to be knowledgeable about the rules, especially important ones such as Deathmatch, as to ensure a good roleplaying experience for yourself and for other players. Please take this punishment as an opportunity to reflect on your actions, and making sure that moving forward you do so in a way where this is not repeated. Thank you for making this report! @Fregothy Report is accepted and archived. Kind regards, Dqniel.

    Wars: At the moment the F4 function of the "WAR" option, which is the ability to declaring hostile action against an opposing gang based on it's rp engagements is at the moment is virtually useless. Though in this function their is no additional benefit to doing as due to the "Deathmatching" regulations imposed via the rules the RP that lead to the wars are almost fairly useless in the fact the best you can hope for is a "Tactical Robbery". Which in these cases you hope either A) They break fear rp as that gives you the ground to engage or B) Are armed prior to the engagement. This poses a huge flaw when it comes to Criminal RP as the best response we can do to gangs wishing to fight us is chain rob them either at labs, houses or on the streets. As we have seen in the past, gang wars are filled with Deathmatch reports and ban's due to the such strict regulations imposed on them. Adding functionality to this option will both expand criminal rp and reduce the sheer reports made as it relates to these "wars". I think what we should do as a collective is decided how we can best expand these regulations when it comes to interactions with gangs, hopefully replacing the concept of "Tactical robberies" with perhaps drive bys and other IC retaliations as it relates to the rp Once system used in SAMP was the concept of "/rep" which would place a text above the players head stating their gang affiliation marking the the declared gang an easy indicator the person to whom they are at war with preventing civilian casualties. Some may concerned that function "meta" but the RP behind it would be that you are clear as day representing that gangs colors marking your a member. Do you have anything to say about this or how to improve the system? Post your ideas bellow!

    Player(s) being reported: ID 63 Date of interaction reported: 2019-09-12 /\ GMT+2 /\ Unix time stamp from HUD: 144 | 1568302159 Your characters name: Einaro Blatniak Other player(s) involved: - Specific rule(s) broken: 14. Deathmatch (DM) Deathmatching is the act of attacking a player or their property without a proper roleplay reason. Examples of valid reasons to attack another player: • If they attempt to arrest or hurt you, an ally, or damage your property. • If they report you to the police for a serious crime. • If they are not in compliance with demands, attempt to escape, or call other players for help in a situation where they are required to display fear under fear roleplay rules. A player cannot kill their victim if the victim is in compliance with the demands. A player must allow their victim enough time to comply with the demands. If a player informs you that your VOIP isn’t working, you must either fix your VOIP using appropriate commands or use text to deliver your demand(s). Vehicles cannot be used to attack another player more than once including a failed attempt. Attacking another player with no engagement in roleplay is not allowed. Killing a player that has obeyed all orders and demands during a roleplay situation is allowed, with roleplay, only within 3 hours of: Severe hostile or criminal action is taken against you, e.g. someone is robbing you at gunpoint. (Excluding police aiming a gun at you.) Someone is attempting to take your life. Someone is attempting to take the life of your close friend or ally, or if you have witnessed it happen. You must explain your reason to kill to the player IC and have OOC evidence proving your reason. How did the player break the rule(s)? I came straight to my dealership to make an order, I seen bunch of people whos thieving ID 106, I told them to move out of the place. No one gave any responding on that, I started to call police, and have been shoot down by ID 63 without any demands. Evidence of rule breach: https://plays.tv/video/5d7a65fdab86814761/dm-

    Not faction leaders or faction members. Faction Leaders run the faction out of the building, the GOVERNMENT owns the building. Factions should submit a zoning request to the city - if approved the building material funds would be taken from the factions payroll vault and then development would come through and submit the new designs. This is the only way I would like to see it working.

    A few of my lecturers have recommended that I start my rants or whatever else with some sort of opener. I figured that I might jsut introduce myself so as to facilitate one's understanding of my position. I've been roleplaying for a while now, addmitedly GTA 5 is somethign rather recent and most of my activty was based around SA-MP and WoW, not that it would mean much, and I couldn't help but notice some, well, idiosyncrasies. I am not looking to stir up any trouble, definitely not looking to offend anyone. Seek I but to humour my fellow members of the postmodern persuasion. Firstly, I'd like to describe my first arrest. Exciting stuff If I may say so myself. Here we are, two individuals of the same criminal persuasion looking for blood, rather cinemaesque. We come face to face to a few suspect masked guys trying to chop a Sandking, figured we might rob them and chop it ourselves. We went in Clint Eastwood style, I had my first gun on me, couldn't tell friend from foe, I heard shots fired so I opened fire myself. My friend went down in that particular engagement, and so I reloaded and proceeded to smite he who had bereaved me of my partner in crime. And so I did, the man was put down not long after, by sheer luck rather than actual skill. Officers came, I can't remember if there were any sirens or not as my overstimulated brain failed to register any. It takes me a few seconds before I finally come back to my senses and notice that an Officer has been shotuing at me for the better part of a minute. I obey his commands, as I always do, the officers in question, or at least one of them is rather well known, she's not technically an officer as she belongs not to the LSPD, a corporal rather, the other one might have been her boss or an overpowered partner in law. I get on my knees, hands up, and one of the fellow lawmen tries cuffing me. This is where everything went downhill. Allow me to explain. I'm fresh out of a shootout, adrenaline pumping thorugh my system like it's going out of style and so naturally, I follow the roleplay. A /me command pops up: "Attempts to cuff the man", it was, naturally, followed up by the obligatory /do "would I succeed" To which I reply: /do I think not, I am shaking. Now, anyone who watched any cop show during the 2000's knows that you don't calm a man down by aiming a gun at his head. Anyone except for that pair of law enforcers. I was still shaking at this point, then a /b popped up, I recall it clear as a mountain sky on a warm summer night: Player 98: ((fear rp pro)) You probably figured out where I'm going with this already. Not 2 second later an Admin looking person, or gods as they are commonly known in the community, pops up, at that point I cracked a laugh and I figured that I'd better just go along with it, and boy was I right. Fear RP negates half of the Fight or Flight instict as well as basic human psychology, some people are indeed insane or have peculiar mechanisms which may lead to them dying over a choice like this, and it's all randy dandy frankly. Fine, I can deal with that, I know that gettign people to adhere to some sort of roleplayer's creed is hard and this kinda helps, although it does so by reducing RP opportunity. The other point that I want to make is rather simple. Now most of my stories involve, well me obviously, and the same group of lawmen, they'll probably figure themselves out if they ever get to reading this. Tipical drug bust, I attemped aiding the escape of a fellow and ended up getting arested. I got a bunch of bullshit charges placed on me. I do at this point feel like I should mention that, unlike some, I do treat this as a game so I don't mind it, I just have a laugh and tell it to sod off. Then a medic, finally, comes along. By that time, I must've been filled with what I would refer to as, a liberal amount of lead, swiftly delivered through the smooth, twelve inch long barrel of a shotgun. Argued for quite a bti with one of the other aprties as he was trying to convince me that bulletwounds in the gut would be okay after he patched them up with gauze, to which I figured that I might just have a bit of fun while I'm at it and see if they can step it up a bit, I was honestly down for a 4 hour scenario if the need arose. When the medic pops up, the individual who shot me does tell them that I have been shot a few times to which the medics reply in their usual fashion. /me attempts to checks the man for injuries /do Would I be able to? /do Yes /do what would I see /do I've been shot so I'd think that you might probably notice some animal bites, check for rabies while you're at it, those pesky guns, you never know. I feel like I've made my point by now. So why do the medics have to ask for the IC acceptance of an unconcious, wounded man who is unable to talk when they require himt o be on a stretcher. You are obviously going to be able to do that unless you're shit at your job. And what's with the gauze thing, who came up with this? There would be some more things to say, but I am fairly sure that all of the 5 people who got to the end of this thing are acutely aware of them.

    Player(s) being reported: ID49 and I believe this is Oti Maxwell Date of interaction reported: 23/08/2019 Unix time stamp from HUD: 1566574150 Your characters name: Otarik Hoza Other player(s) involved: Hanibal Specific rule(s) broken: Actions that are unrealistic or promote poor quality roleplay are considered as non-roleplay. How did the player break the rule(s)? So after a shoot out, I ran up to him pointing a gun, without any roleplay, and fear he grabbed his radio and changed the frequency. • You must display reasonable value for your life and comply with the demands of your attacker.
