GTA RP Server Rules

Welcome to PMA-RP!

These are the general server rules.

PMA-RP is age restricted to players above the age of 18.

All rules are subject to change at any time. Staff will always have the final say in any situation.

You must have a working microphone to play on PMA-RP!

Your microphone should always be on push to talk! Should you need help with setting up your microphone, please ask in the tech-support channel on the discord and a community member or staff will help you whenever possible.

You are expected to have a decent microphone. People should be able to understand you and not hear what’s going on in your background.

Breaking any of the rules will result in corrective measured that are subject to staff’s discretion.

These rules do not restrict staff’s ability to punish ‘common sense’ rules like being respectful, don’t VDM or RDM, Don’t be an idiot, and make a unique character.

Staff is not allowed to reimburse lost items.

    • Any information gained on one character, is only known to that character
    • You have no recollection that your other characters exist, don’t mention them at all.
  3. Discord information does not translate into character information:

    • You cannot use any information gathered from discord for any means. A member of staff NEEDS to be in every PMA business discord. If you are a new business and would like a discord, please contact a community manager.

Powergaming

  1. You can kill or rob, not both.

    • If the individual you are robbing does not fear you can kill them
  2. You cannot use your vehicle as a weapon in any offensive manner.

    • Using your vehicle in a defensive manner is only allowed if there’s no other way out
      • If there’s a way to get out of a situation without running someone over you must take that action instead
      • You cannot use your vehicle in a ‘defensive’ manner in the fear of someone else’s life, you can only do it out of fear for your own
        • Example of what would be permissible: There are four individuals at legion blocking the exit (blocking your only way out), all having obvious hostile intent, and not allowing anyone out of legion.
        • Example of what would get you banned: My friend was being chased by cops so I ran them over.
  3. You cannot transfer money or cars if you decide to leave the community, doing so gives another player a massive advantage over other players which they would not have gained otherwise.

  4. You cannot forcefully dismember or mutilate another player:

    • You MUST get permission before attempting any dismemberment or mutilation.
    • You cannot force a player to lose vital parts of their body.
  5. You cannot Hit & Run a store

    • You have to give officers an appropriate amount of time to respond to the call.
  6. You cannot rob another player without a valid reason

    • When robbing someone you should have prior interactions which lead up to you robbing them
    • Example:
      • If Gang A [OR PD] wants to start shit with Gang B [OR PD]. Heated conversations can scale to getting robbed.
      • Talking shit, scales to beef, scales to possible robbery.
  7. You cannot coordinate the start of robberies at the same time.

  8. You cannot pass weapons or items in an unrealistic manner:

    • You cannot pass through walls
    • You cannot pass onto roofs
    • You cannot pass through gates.
    • Please use common sense.
  9. You cannot call a job in order to get them to respond, just to rob them or take them hostage.

  10. You cannot use fake hostages for the use in anything:

    • Fake hostages are hostages that have a choice in becoming a hostage
  11. You cannot force a player to revive at grandma’s.

Injuries

  1. Be Realistic with your injury:

    • Don’t talk if your injury would prevent it
    • If you broke a bone, act as you did so.
  2. You cannot re-engage with a person/gang that leads to your death for 25 minutes.

  3. When getting “killed”, you may only remember details about your death if revived by EMS at Pillbox or a gang-member’s grandma.

    • If EMS cannot get to your body or if you press ‘E’ to respawn at Pillbox without EMS assistance, you keep your items but cannot remember anything nor use any information from the scene.
