ZARP SSRP Server Rules
Last Updated: January 18th, 2020
When you encounter an issue in-game your first course of action should be to contact a staff member, you can do so by pressing F1 to access the report center. Here you should give a short description of the problem you are having. Once you've made the report a staff member will come to assist you as soon as possible.
Staff's Word is Final
If you have any issues with a verdict or a punishment given out by a staff member you need to accept it and then speak to a higher up staff member about it. You may also appeal your punishment or report the staff member in question on the forums if you feel like there was any misconduct.
You may not roleplay in the administrator area. This means that trades may not take place other than for booster pack or VIP. Stealing or doing hits is also prohibited but may be excluded during events.
The rules are in place in order to ensure a fun and safe environment on the servers and as such are not here for anyone to scrutinize or attempt to loophole. The staff have the final word on the rules, if you feel like a staff member is abusing you may submit a report against them.
Scamming is the act of stealing money, items or ZARP VIP/Booster Packs from another player through deception or trickery. It is strictly prohibited under the rules and can be punishable by our administration team. Scamming has long been an issue on ZARP, and there is a wide range of scams that range from the obvious to the in-depth and complex. Nearly all scams involve tricking the victim one way or another, although sometimes scammers will exploit the Trade System or other game features or bugs in order to steal other players items.
Gambling games are not considered scamming. If you are not willing to lose your money/items do not participate in gambling.
It is not considered a scam unless money or items are lost or received. Except in the case of agreed upon coinflips, dice rolls or minigames.
Administrators must have evidence before punishing players for scamming. If you are unsure ask a community team member to investigate the logs.
You must pay out of your own inventory and wallet if you are banned for scamming, if you cannot afford the items then bring this up to the staff member who is handling the appeal so it can be discussed further and decide on what to do next.

1.11 Alternate Accounts - Using alternate accounts to interact with NPCs to give yourself an RP advantage is not allowed. This includes, but is not limited to bailing yourself out with an alternate account. Furthermore, players may only join events on one account and cannot use any alternate accounts to boost their chances of winning the event. They are also not permitted to "hold" a base with an alt account while they do other things, as an example: buying the door on your alternate account whilst using your main account to raid a base as a police job.
The following are not allowed to be used by Alternative Accounts:
- Joining Events
- Bank/Casino Raids
- Drug Runs
2.0 Character Rules
2.1 Names - Character or gang names may not be vulgar, offensive or blasphemous. Gang names must be unique and visibly different to those of other gangs. Character names must also be visibly different than others'.
2.2 Random Death Match - In order to kill or harm another player you require a valid role-play reason to do so. Crossfire is not an excuse for killing people nearby where you are raiding or shooting. This rule always applies unless another rule calls for an exception. During an airdrop you are only allowed to kill people within the district of an ongoing airdrop. Police may not kill arrested criminals in the jail cells unless they are making an active attempt to escape the cells.
- Examples of valid reasons to kill another player:

The player kills an ally or friend of yours.
The player attempts to destroy or steal your property.
The player acts threatening towards you.

Police jobs are allowed to break NLR at the Police District and when attempting to stop an active nuke/bank raid. Police jobs must not be killed unless they are making a clear attempt to raid.
All jobs apart from Police are allowed to break NLR at the Airdrop District and when attempting to get an active Airdrop

2.5 Spawn - You are not allowed to obstruct spawn areas and areas leading into spawn, this includes but isn't limited to building or parking vehicles in the way of spawn areas or tunnels.
2.6 Custom Job Titles - Using custom job titles doesn't void other rules in place on the server or enable you to break the rules assigned to your job. An example being setting your job title to terrorist, you may do as such but it doesn't allow you to random death match players on the server. Your actions must be thoughtful and properly role-played. You may not set your custom job title to that of another job.
2.7 FearRP - If you are held at gunpoint and you weren't holding a gun first, you must follow demands given to you, unless you can reasonably break gunpoint without excessively risking your life e.g by walking behind a wall within very close proximity - breaking gunpoint is defined by being completely out of sight of the person pointing a gun at you. You can not use props in order to break gunpoint. You cannot equip a gun from your hot-bar or inventory while under direct gunpoint.
Melee weapons may also be used to enact FearRP but an armed opponent will be able to resist this regardless of the number of individuals armed with melee weapons.
Do not do anything to risk your life when under FearRP. The side with the most armed people are in charge of a situation, this means that a large amount of people may overpower a single armed person even if that person already had a gun out. FearRP ends in the case of combat starting.
You must use /me to conduct FearRP. For example: '/me handcuffs [name]' or '/me locks vehicle door' to prevent escape.
- Taking a hostage: When under FearRP someone may be taken hostage and must then comply until their ransom is paid, someone breaks them out or the hostage takers are killed. The police should try their best to rescue the player without putting the player at risk. The maximum amount of time someone may be held hostage is five minutes and the maximum ransom is $50K. You may only take a hostage in a place that you cannot be seen or is not visited by many people. You can also kidnap someone anywhere if the area is empty. Kidnapping in the mines is not allowed.
- Mugging: When under FearRP someone may be mugged, they cannot refuse this if they have the money and cannot kill the mugger once the mug is over. The maximum amount that can be taken during a mug is $10,000. You may not mug more than three times over the course of an hour. You may only mug in a place that you cannot be seen or is not visited by many people. You can also mug someone anywhere if the area is empty. Mugging in the mines is not allowed.
