General Server Rules

Post by OnyxEye » Wed Jul 12, 2017 7:43 pm

***By connecting to the server and engaging in gameplay, You agree to the server rules, in game laws, etc and agree that your actions are entirely your own, and that you will not hold KUFFS Gaming responsible legally or otherwise for anything that results from your actions, words and behaviors.***

YOU MUST have a decent sounding microphone and use headphones or earbuds at all times. Horrible mic quality ruins the experience for others, and feedback from your PC speakers does the same. ENGLISH is the language we speak on the server. If you don't speak English, we can't understand you, you'll need to find another server.

Additionally, you MUST be over the age of 13 to connect to our server, at all. If you're under 13, don't even log in, period.


Important Note: KUFFS Gaming Members and other server players are often recording video/audio. By playing on the server, you agree that your voice, character likeness, etc will be used and published in various media formats. Your play on the server constitutes your acceptance and approval, and waiver of all rights to place any claim against the publisher, KUFFS Gaming, or any other entity involved.

Please understand that we reserve the right to remove your access to the server at any time for violation of the rules or disrupting roleplay of others.


NO POLITICS, RELIGION, or RACIAL slurs. This is not the place. Things like that cause arguments and division.

Our primary desire for you on our server is that you have fun, but that you don't mess up the fun for others. Try to roleplay well and don't just jump in this server to kill people and blow stuff up, etc. This will not be tolerated. Conduct yourself in a way that makes sense and is somewhat realistic.

If something occurs that disrupts gameplay or goes against the spirit of this server and a specific rule does not presently exist in this rule listing, the final call lies with the KUFFS Gaming Crew admin(s) on how the situation will be handled.

Steam Name (Gamer Tags) - You cannot use Steam Names, Gamer Tags, or Discord Names that contain unit numbers from other FiveM servers. This can create confusion with our assigned unit numbers. If you do so, you may be kicked and/or banned.

TEAMSPEAK: During patrols, KUFFS TEAMSPEAK IS TO BE USED FOR OFFICIAL POLICE/EMS/FIRE communications ONLY - USE IN GAME voice chat to talk with other players and in some cases with police/first responders. There is a general lobby in TeamSpeak that can be used for anyone that has been approved as a civilian or emergency services player. Keep your mic muted in Teamspeak until needed, using push-to-talk is required. Failure to follow these rules will result in kick and/or ban. A microphone is REQUIRED for play on the server. English is the only language allowed, for communication purposes.

If the server is open and no police officers are online/on duty, please refrain from violent crimes against other players.

Client side mods that give the player an unfair advantage are prohibited. This would include any mods that increase speed, ability, invincibility, other trainers, etc. The only client side modifications allowed are the sound and map overrides we provide in the Required/Recommended Files section of the forum.

Any offer, public or private of an exchange of real money for in game money, money drops, mods, cheats, etc will lead to a permanent ban.

Obey all in game laws both traffic and criminal.

Clear abuse/ignorance of 'in game' traffic laws and criminal behavior expectations and/or our server rules will result in a ban. This behavior has absolutely no place in roleplay. Disregard for traffic laws and driving at top speed while wrecking everyone else out is prohibited. This is also an example of cop baiting.

Do not engage in "death matching". Yes this is GTA V, but this is also a roleplay server. Respect others, obey the police (when police are online and on duty) and remember the role play! Have a logical reason to kill another player. Scenarios where violence suits the roleplay is acceptable in small doses. Excessive violence is subject to kick/ban.

Do not engage in "cop baiting". Any player found to be attempting to intentionally bait the police officers into pursuits, shoot outs/ambushes etc will be banned, so don't do it. Criminals avoid the police, so again ROLEPLAY! IF you want to roleplay with the police, then use one of the pre-planned scenarios and follow the rules of the game.

KEEP THINGS REALISTIC! Rarely is there a need to use sticky bombs, rocket launchers, shoot from the vehicle, or lead police on a chase around the whole map. If you over-do it too often, you may find yourself removed from the server.

Use of trainers should and must fall within normal realistic role play. The predefined list of off-limits weapons, vehicles and related trainer settings should be adhered to at all times. In other words, Any unrealistic/unfair advantages are not to be employed..

***ITEMS OFF LIMITS***

- God mode/invincibility/invisibility on peds AND OR vehicles, performance enhancing settings and vehicle modifications, all heavy weapons, mines/sticky bombs/unlimited ammo, no reloading etc are all items that are forbidden unless required for a pre-planned scenario.
- Use proper judgment, play to the realism and the funny and be wise about your choices.
- Likewise, tanks, military/police/armed vehicles are off limits, unless called for in a pre-planned scenario. Aircraft may not be used for the purpose of engaging nor evading the police.
- Emergency vehicles, LEO/EMS/Fire scripts, menus, peds, clothing parts, and props should NEVER be used by civilians, period.
- Assaulting paramedics or firefighters will not be tolerated.
- Again, be wise, and play to the realism.

Approved weapons for civilians are for sale in the various gun shops around the map. Some are legal (if you have the firearms license, some are illegal no matter what.

Any weapon not able to be purchased in-game is OFF LIMITS.

Approved vehicles for civilians: Muscle cars, passenger vans, pickups, compact, sedan, Motorcycles(PCJ-600, freeway, hellfury, Hexer, Zombie, faggio scooters) and bicycles. Approved vehicles can be purchased at Simeon's. Utility vehicles are acceptable provided they serve a purpose for role play. Any overpowered vehicle that cannot be purchased, but that you steal could get you kicked/banned.

COSMETIC MODS ONLY - PERFORMANCE UPGRADES ARE OFF LIMITS, unless available in the Los Santos Customs. Using cheat menus to beef up your vehicle is prohibited.

*One vehicle spawned per person at one time. Unless your vehicle is seized, stolen, totaled or destroyed and HAS BEEN towed away, you do not spawn another vehicle. Ignoring this will cause issues for other players and the game server. Don't do it. If you spawned the incorrect vehicle, park it somewhere that makes sense (like a parking spot) or delete it using the delete vehicle command (/dv).

CIVILIAN PED CHOICE

CIVILIANS should NEVER use any scripts/vehicles/peds/clothing/props, etc intended for emergency services!

ALL POLICE/Sheriff/law enforcement and emergency services peds are off limits to civilians. IF you have an interest in becoming a police officer or would like to be part of the emergency services, there is an additional application that must be completed. Details on how to apply for play on the server can be found HERE:

- Application Information

Once you find a ped civi that you like and confirmed that other players can see you, it is recommended to ALWAYS use that same ped for that specific character when in game. This supports role play, history/rapport with the police. You can save your ped appearance in the F9 Menu for quickly changing to it after logging in.

In game traffic laws that are enforced by law enforcement officers:

-Failure to Obey Traffic Light/Sign/Failure to signal for turns
-Speeding/Reckless Driving/Racing/Endangerment (failure to maintain control of the car/driving in a manner that is dangerous to others)
-Failure to maintain assured distance (Tailgating)
-Failure to use or defective lights
-Unroadworthy vehicle/Illegal equipment (Underglow lights/Severly damaged vehicle, flat tires, etc)
-Illegal Turn/U-Turn/Improper Use of Lanes/Illegal passing
-Failure To Signal
-Failure to yield to emergency vehicle
-Driving in Opposite lanes of traffic (Driving on wrong side of road)

Access To The Server

The KUFFS Gaming server is whitelisted during official KUFFS stream times, meaning that only approved IP addresses/SteamIDs can join. We do not sell or distribute anyone's IP address and have no desire to do anything shady with it, it's only use is to grant you access to the server. When your application is reviewed, we will use your SteamID and/or database ID to whitelist you. You may also have to be added to additional in-game whitelist(s) when an admin is online.

First time applicants for LEO/EMS/FIRE will be asked to play as a civilian for quite some time just to make sure you are a good fit for the server and can follow the rules, as well as that you are dependable for helping populate the server. At times, a voice discussion in Discord may be required prior to approval of any application.

YOUTUBE, TWITCH, VIDEO Guidelines are made a part of these rules and can be found here: viewtopic.php?f=5&t=3.

KUFFS Gaming Admins reserve the right to ban or remove anyone from the server at any time, for any reason.

These rules are subject to change at any time, your continued play on the server constitutes your acceptance of and agreement to them. Any changes to the rules will be communicated by bumping the thread by an admin.
