1. No kos (kill on sight)
KOS is never permitted unless it can be considered self defense
Self defense is when some shoots at you (either hitting you or a small area around you), your building and or your vehicle.
To have a killing not considered Kill On Sight, you must ‘initiate’ this means you must say “HANDS UP” or something that states they are being robbed, arrested, or involved in a shooting. You may only kill them if they do not cooperate with your demands.
You must give anyone you initiate on at least 10 seconds to attempt to cooperate with your demands.
Initiation only lasts for 10 minutes, after that time you must re-initiate.
No driving people over (It is not KOS if you run someone over in the middle of the road not at the sidewalk though it is bannable if you do not make an attempt to stop).
Do not bait someone into initiating on you. This includes stepping on their property for no valid reason.
You may not kill a police officer for attempting to pull you over. Lights and sirens do not count as initiation.
Be reasonable. If someone asks you nicely to get away from their personal property, or leave their store, you cannot shoot them.
2. No Spamming, Mic-Spam, Music Playing
Spamming includes writing the same message consistently or sending multiple (2+) messages within ~5 seconds (Administration may choose what is right).
Mic-Spam includes screaming into your mic, excessive noise.
Music Playing includes trollish singing, music playing (Through mic or in-game radio). Though Music Playing through your mic is permitted if you are a “DJ” and are not in populated areas like the main towns (Seattle, Everett, Tacoma
No Spamming horn’s / siren’s
3. No Griefing / Raiding
You may not shoot / destroy other’s buildings or vehicles in the process of attempting to gain their possessions / money.
You may forcefully raid their house / building to catch someone you have already initiated on whether it is a gun store or a house (Only when they do not comply).
Only Police ranked Corporal or higher may raid if they have sufficient evidence of illegal activities.
4. No Trolling
No randomly placing build-able’s around the map.
No suicidal vehicles.
No camping spawn zones.
No stealing tires / gas repeated (must follow rule #7 Be Realistic)

5. No excessive use of capital letters
- Using caps “Like This All The Time” is okay, but “USING CAPS LIKE THIS” is considered excessive.
6. PArk properly
Your vehicle must not be on the road or blocking any pathways / parking lots.
Best way for parking is to park in a designated parking spot, on the side of the road and on the grass (Police laws may overwrite these).
7. be realistic
Anything you build and do must be realistic (In real life you don’t wake up one day and decide to shoot the sky for no reason in the middle of a city).

Do not shoot others that are part of your group with intentions that they wont die.
No metal fences (Use the barbed wire fence)
Beds must be placed in a house in a correct bed location, beds should not be found on hills or places like a store.
You may not teleport to someone involved in a fight in order to help them, you must make your way over normally.
You may not teleport to someone or your bed to defend your base, /tpa and /home are to be used out of RP, therefor it should not be used for getting out of RP situations.
Robberies may only happen by a individual OR group only after 20 minutes of a previous robbery.
When cuffed, in jail or taken hostage you have no way of gaining item’s or teleporting away, or others to you, therefor /i, /v, /tpa and /home are not permitted for use other then food (if none is provided by Police) and prison clothing. Crawling through the metal bars in the windows of the police station is also considered unrealistic as they clearly are there.
Pulling your gun out while someone is cuffing your hands is not permitted.
If someone is robbing you and your gun is holstered, you may not pull it out to defend, you must comply as a person would be able to shoot you.

17. Police department raids
When a PD raid begins, the zone surrounding the PD and the PD itself becomes a KOS zone. Anyone who does not want to participate should get as far away from the PD as possible.
Spectating PD raids is allowed, but you will most likely be shot, so it is heavily discouraged.
Raiders must announce when they are all dead or have left the PD by typing “/pdraid” again. You cannot lie about the status of the PD raid.
You may initiate a PD raid if all these criteria are met.
A prisoner is in the PD, inside a cell | Raider(s) must be part of the same ingame group as the prisoner. | You must wait 30 minutes between each PD raid (Other groups performing raids also contribute to the cooldown. Cooldown starts from the time the robbery ends).
If these criteria are met, you must use the PD Raid command “/pdraid” in chat and wait 20 seconds before firing the first shot. Killing someone before the 20 seconds countdown has elapsed will be counted as KOS.
If the raid was successful and all officers are dead, you must wait 60 seconds since the last gunshot, then you may use /duty to bring the prisoner outside of the cell.
Do not vandalize the PD unnecessarily. Blowing up cars after all cops are dead is unnecessary. You may only destroy buildables that block the path to the prisoner.
Once you have died in a PD raid, both officers and raiders CANNOT come back under any circumstances, even if they have waited 10 minutes.
