After a month in the making, we present to you a sprawling world that will bite a chunk out of you. Through this thread, you'll get a general breakdown of the content of this year's event. Brief Lore Following the events of last year Halloween, the town yet again descends into chaos. Creatures begin appearing through portals around the lively town of Retribution, causing disarray and abandonment of certain areas. Citizens flee into the inner city from the suburbs and the slums, the chaos grabbing the full attention of a corporate faction named the O.R.E. They move a massive presence into the area to provide aid to the scared citizens, as well as investigate the anomalous on goings of the normally docile town. As the O.R.E move in, shady activity also spurs from the famous Bloodworks Bar. Now you, the player, are stuck in the middle of this mess. Features - An immense and custom questing system. - Main story quest with additional side quests that can change the flow. - Hundreds of lines of dialogue. - 4 new perm weapons, one of which with 4 variants. - 9 new cosmetics. - Special PvE zones, so no worries about friendly fire. - New enemies that scale to the number of players on the server. - An effective revive system to keep you in the fight. - Detailed zones to re-explore and get drawn into the atmosphere. The New Perm Weapons King Cobra Revolver Silenced TMP Winchester Rifle (Picture coming soon) Plasma Swords The Zones Residential Slums O.R.E Occupations Bloodworks Bar <-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------> Final Notes We really hope you guys enjoy this event. Any questions or comments can be posted down below, and the team will answer them as soon as we can.

    RetributionRP Halloween Event +Content Update --------------------------- Through this fog they came along Dark creatures singing a terrible song The rest of the bar laughed at him Only I felt my hope grow dim They found him dead the very next day "No more stories from him," I heard them say We blamed bad luck for his fate Only I felt terror so great --------------------------- The event will run from Thursday, October 27'th until Tuesday, November 1'st to give everyone enough time to get the seasonal items. A thick mist has overtaken our town of rp_downtown_v4c. People who have gone out at night are never to be seen again. Sightings of horrible monsters are growing, and a new cemetery has appeared seemingly out of nowhere. Returning the hearts to the urns, and the smiling god will reward you with untold treasures. Don't fret though, citizens. We've recruited our good friend from Ravenholm to guide you through these dark times. Each night, our good friend Klaus Fitzgerald will keep you company through these dark times by announcing when the monsters rise... --------------------------- --- Seasonal Content --- Objective: Hunt monsters that spawn at NIGHT (10PM - 4AM). Return the hearts they drop into the urns at the cemetery for prizes. The type of monster changes each in-game night. Monsters have a 20% chance of spawning as an ADVANCED variant which are MUCH stronger. Only one monster can be in the map at any given time, and won't spawn near players. Hunt and search for them! SUICIDERS - Driven mad by the smiling god, these once-human monsters want to extend their suffering to you. (Ranged, Strong) EMISSARY - The messenger that is here for only one purpose. To deliver your soul to the smiling god. (Weak, Fast) WRITHERS - Their mangled corpses won't stop chasing you until they've devoured you whole. (Slow, Strong) THREASHER - Fast. Powerful. Ruthless. This horrifying beast will grind your body into a bloody pulp with just one swing. (Very Fast, Very Strong) (CAUTION ADVISED) --------------------------- Seasonal items can only be obtained during the event. You won't be able to get them anywhere else! NEW - 3 Festive Trails you can obtain (Rewarded from defeating monsters and returning their heart to the correct urn) NEW - 3 Masks you can obtain (Rewarded from defeating ADVANCED monsters and returning their heart to the correct urn) NEW - Winchester Select (Permanent Shotgun) (Rewarded from defeating a ADVANCED THRESHER and returning his heart to the correct urn) NEW - Pumpkin Helmet (Hat) (Rewarded from defeating a THRESHER and returning his heart to the correct urn) --- Other New Content --- NEW - Permanent Items SWEP You can now equip Hats, Trails, and even SWEPs like the "Dab" SWEP. No more losing a $10 million investment because you got RDM'd! Permanent items can still be "dropped" for trading. You'll just lose the ability to use that specific item. Halloween event items will be CONSUMABLE, but not POCKETABLE until after the event! NEW - Permanent Dab, Facepunch, Middle Finger, Surrender, and Flip SWEPs added Currently unobtainable. To be given out during SA+ hosted events as prizes. NEW - Hat Shop Hats are now sold near the downtown fountain. You can only buy one hat at a time. Hats are on a rotation, and change every few hours or server reset. Hats are kept permanently! Unless you want to trade them. 4 Initial hats added to the hat shop! FIX - Suspect/Wanted System Prioritizing SUSPECT rewards over WANTED rewards You used to be credited with the SUSPECT bounty when you arrested a WANTED criminal. MINOR - Custom HUD elements (Time counter, laws on screen, debug info box) now hidden while using camera tool.

    As more and more players seem to be reaching the hard cap of money which is $2,147,483,647 I've added some bars to the game so you can store your money in other methods, or even if you haven't hit the cap you can trade these bars with other players and they will be just as valuable as money. These bars work by purchasing them off Bill (Another vendor is in the works), for example the Silver Bar is $10,000,000 once purchased it will go to your inventory (I HIGHLY suggest moving these to your permanent item inventory) and then that bar will give you $10,000,000 to your wallet when you press E on it. Think of it as another way to store your money without the money being in your wallet whilst still being trade-able. Bars Available: Silver Bar: $10,000,000 Platinum Bar: $50,000,000 Gold Bar: $100,000,000

    Hey guys, so as most people may have realised - the past month or even few months I haven't been active on the server or the Forums. I've been spending time with my girlfriend who lives in America (I live in Europe, so this was a very important thing to me), sadly that trip is coming to an end this Saturday which means I'll be back to a Computer that can run Garry's Mod. I will put my up-most effort to try get some updates out for you guys once I get back, you can expect changes for the better from Sunday - this doesn't only mean game-play changes, but everything overall. And on my next visit I'll definitely be better prepared so something like this doesn't happen again. Thanks for reading.

    If you're having the issue with Stripe which rejects your card and you get the message "Stripe" with a blank-blue page after attempting to purchase; this is an alternative for you.

You can pay with whatever method you'd like on their website, make sure you use a valid email so they can give you the code. After you've received the code you can either email the code to my email "Jouaramo@gmail.com" along with what packages you're wanting for the code, or add me on Steam and discuss it there. http://steamcommunity.com/id/Jouaram/ Make sure that however much cards you purchase = the amount of the packages you're purchasing on the Store. After you've sent me the code and what package you're wanting, I will apply your packages ASAP. Steam Trading Method: This method is for if you don't have access to any of the above and want to make a trade with your skins through Steam.

    Trick or Treat 2018 is Retribution's Halloween mini-event. From now until 5th November 2018 Trick-Or-Treat pumpkins will spawn across the map every 90 minutes. These pumpkins will have a chance to give you either a trick or a treat (RTD tokens, a new perma item). These Halloween-ified RTD tokens will give EVERYONE 2 RTD tokens no matter their rank, if a treat is received. Every pumpkin looted gives you a chance at one of the 5 new permanent weapons. If a trick is received however, you might not be having a good time. This mini-event introduces 4 new Melee weapons and 1 new Gun. During the event, night and day have been switched; with it being night-time majority of the time, along with some other spooks added. Whilst the event is running you will also be able to purchase some spooky entities from the F4 menu such as candy, fireworks and spiderweb that you can spawn as a method of base-defense (slowing attackers). I don't want to post pictures of the rewards yet as I want players to find them out for themselves. Good luck!

    Nah I'm kidding, but it made you click the post. SO, it does seem that the crashes were caused by someone using the Duplicator tool; this means that I am going to have to add restrictions to Advanced Duplicator 2 as it's all client-sided and cannot be restricted very well like Advanced Duplicator 1. If you'd like to know what I have to back it up with dupe causing the crashes -2 days ago we had 12 crashes out of nowhere, unexplained and almost as much the day before (ever since the pink/black screen dupe started happening - this is what gave me the idea that it was dupes) - and yesterday when I removed dupe for the day we had 1 crash from prop-spam and 2 crashes from steam servers going down which is much more playable than 12 crashes. I've added Advanced Duplicator 1 to the server and removed parts of it that enable uploading so player's cannot upload malicious dupes that crash the server (Or make your screen all pink/black etc). This Duplicator will be available to every user as Adv Dupe 2 was before. I've also re-added Advanced Duplicator 2 but this will only be usable by Supporters +. I might add that, in the rare case that this is a Supporter doing this - and we still get crashes then I will have to remove Advanced Duplicator 2 completely and the title will be true - but I hope that isn't what's happening here. A big suggestion is to paste your Adv Dupe 2 bases > Copy them with Adv Dupe 1 and save them so that if Adv Dupe 2 is ever removed you'll have your bases and such still in Adv Dupe 1. Well, here's to hopefully less crashes. Cheers.

    To request help, contact a staff member in-game by type @ and a short message. If a player feels the original staff member is unsatisfactory, they have the right to ask for another. Staff members have the final say and their decisions are final even if not stated in the rules. If a player feels any outcomes/punishment(s) delivered were unsatisfactory, make an appeal on the forums. Players may not loophole and harms them more than helps them. The rules are the guidelines to the server and staff have the final say. If a player is not happy with the outcome, contact a higher up or post a complaint on the forums. Check out the FAQ if there are any questions! https://retributionrp.org/index.php?/topic/7209-darkrp-rules-faq/ Need To Urgently Call a Staff Member?

Warns must be clear, given in local chat, and give 10 seconds before the victim is shot. EX: A player is following another player.

Players may steal the money from the Bit-miner but cannot steal the entity itself. Players may blow up bitminers. Players with job model shoulders smaller than a 1x1 plate cannot raid, mug, kidnap, or defend a base. FailRP FailRP is not roleplaying properly. A player's character should always obey their limits, and not do something that obviously could not realistically happen. EX: Police officer is basing with a gang of thieves and is printing money in their base EX: Mayor is using a shotgun EX: Gun dealer is raiding the police department Hits, Kidnap, Mugs, and Pick-pocketing. Hit Rules: Players are not required to advert hits accepted/completed. Players/parties may not repeatedly target players. Random hits are allowed. The victim of a hit may return to where they died, but cannot enact revenge on their killer. Players may only complete hits in rp only bases if they don't have to lockpick\break down doors and/or fading doors to get to their target. Kidnapping Rules: Victims must follow the kidnapper's demands, and do what they say; however role-playing out the situation in their own way is okay too. Kidnappers may not force their victims to spawn items. The maximum ransom is $100,000. Players may only be held hostage for 15 minutes. Kidnapped players may not kill themselves while kidnapped, this counts even after you're no longer unconscious. Mugging Rules: Parties/players must give a local chat message that a victim is being mugged, with a maximum amount of $20,000. Parties/players may only mug one victim per 5 minutes. Parties/players may mug the same victim once every 10 minutes, and must give that victim 10 seconds to comply. Parties/players must let the victim go if they comply with their mugger's demands. Victims may not revenge-kill a mugger after they have been mugged, but victims can report them to the police. Players may not mug hobos or pets. Pickpocket Rules: Players may not pick-pocket hobos or pets. Players may not pick-pocket other players in spawn. Party Rules If players are within a party together, they must base together. Only the members of a party may protect each other in all RP scenarios. Party members cannot steal, raid, mug, kidnap, or place hits on other party members. Players may not party abuse. EX: Joining a party --> Gaining access --> Leaving party --> Raiding Cinema Rules The cinema is always RP-only. Any illegal object or bitminer is not allowed to be stored in the cinema, and players may not raid the cinema. The cinema owner may charge an entrance fee of up to $5,000. Raidables There are many types of entities in RetributionRP, some of them count as raidables and some of them don't. A list of what is considered a 'raidable': Health/Armor dispensers. Printers/Drugs. Any types of 'Money/Entity' creators such as drug labs and bitcoin. (Bitcoin however are unique, they cannot be physically stolen but you can take the money from them). Hobo's Token Eggs. (Hobos are the only job who can raid Token Eggs.) Basing Rules * Applicable to RP-Only * Not Applicable to RP-Only Individuals or groups may own one building and must own every door in that building; if a situation occurs where more than one person owns doors in a building, whoever owns the "front-doors" gains ownership of the building.* Individuals may own a role play base which contains no raidables. Must be labeled with a text screen saying "RP ONLY".* No fading doors directly in front/behind map doors. * Bases have to be clear and concise. No collided props, invisible props, glow/flickering material. * No shooting through cracks, holes in walls, or fading doors. * Players cannot force players to crouch, jump, or climb into their base (This includes world ladders).* Players may only shoot out of shooting windows, not one way props. * Only use materials that are easy on the eyes or transparent. Be fair or don’t use them at all. * No traps, mazes, or zig-zag bases. This includes designs inhibiting the use of a fading door bomb (Floor falling out from under raiders, ramp only accessible with keypad cracker).* No builds that inhibit players walking/running speed. * No roof bases unless there is direct access built into the building. (Example: Hotel, Building next to PD)* Players may have a KOS line + sign outside the entrance of their base. It must be noticeable. No tiny letters or hard to see colors.* You may not KOS people who are on public property (sidewalk, street, etc.) Players may only have three fading doors TOTAL per base.

The window must be controlled by a button or keypad and does not require a minimum time. * Must be a solid prop that has a transparent material which disappears completely when open. One way props are allowed for viewing purposes, however, neither party may shoot through them.* Players may not have a one way window next to a non-one way prop allowing the defenders to see raiders and shoot them. (http://i.imgur.com/WYLb58N.jpg)* Players may not build while being raided.* Players/parties may not mega-base or have bases that extend unnecessarily past the sidewalk and/or upwards.* Bases that contain a passageway to the sewer system are not allowed to block those off, and are also not allowed to base in the passageways.* The large grass area near park is HOBO AREA only. Regular players may not base there.* Players may only build RP ONLY bases on the island.* The apartments and hotels may only have one player/party per suite. Hotel Managers may own entire hotels to sell suites to their customers.* You cannot block off Dumpsters/NPCs, you can build near them but there must be a clear way for others to interact with them.* RP-Only Rules Players may add an RP-Only text screen on their base if they wish to roleplay without being raided. This disallows having raidables such as printers, drug labs and armor/health dispensers. Players may have a KOS sign but it has to be reasonable. Acceptable KOS sign (KOS behind counter) Unacceptable KOS sign (KOS on sidewalk) Gun dealers, Club Owners, Black Market Dealers and any other merchant-like jobs can have RP-only signs/bases preventing them from being raided as long as they have no raidables and if they are selling products, their product is strictly only spawned in to be sold and not kept in their base. You may not initiate mugs in RP only Zones. Players are allowed to complete hits in RP-Only bases as long as no raiding is initiated. RP Building owners/party members do not follow NLR when the death occurred inside their RP-Only base. If the Owner of the RP-Only building asks you to leave with a valid reason, you must oblige. Building Signs Players may add Building signs to their base to disallow players to raid and keep players out whilst building. Whilst you have a building sign up, refer to the rules listed below: You CAN prop-block your entrances. You CAN have a KOS sign (cannot reach your sidewalk, if used to bait you will be punished) You CANNOT have ANY form of raidables whilst your sign is up, this includes ANYTHING that you can purchase such as dispensers, printers, etc. You CANNOT have a building sign up if you have no intent of building. Only place this sign when you are going to build. You CANNOT put a building sign up with or without propblock to avoid RP situations such as escaping police. You CANNOT place a building sign if a player is currently initiating a raid. Wait until at least 5 minutes after the raid has ended. An admin may check your base at anytime whilst you have a building sign up to make sure you have no raidables. Raiding Rules Defending Defenders may not open world doors is opened by a raider it may not be closed. Defenders may not fading door abuse - they must use their keypad to enter their base during a raid. Defenders may not bait players into raiding they in any way, shape, or form. Defenders who died may return to their base after waiting the NLR time (5 minutes). Attacking Raiders must be near the property to initiate a raid. Raiders may only raid with their party or same job groups. Raiders may not counter another raid. Raiders and their party must wait 20 minutes before raiding the same base again. Raiders cannot camp a base, get in and get out; nor may they raid a base which clearly has nothing of value. Raiders must try to only harm those who own the doors to the base. Police department raids must be called from the outside of PD. Raiders must advert PD raids. PD raid adverts may not use text effects. Raiders may not raid bases that have a building sign. Refer to building sign rules here: Police Department Police may not do any illegal activities or corruption. Police may own a building but only for the RP effect, they must not have defenses or illegals. Police may break NLR to protect against PD raids. Police may ONLY break NLR for PD raids. PD may have 1 defense or 1 roadblock that consists of 2 fading doors which may be double stacked. Police defenses must abide by the basing rules. Police defenses do not have to be wide enough for two people to stand side by side. Police can build a roadblock if they role-play it correctly. Roadblocks must be approved by an Admin. During a lockdown, police must give players one warning in local chat with 15 seconds to get inside a building. Police may not KOS for being outside during a lockdown. They may AOS only. Contraband scanning a base may be considered raided. The Police may break NLR to continue protecting the PD during PD raids. The front door to PD may NOT be locked unless a PD Raid or Lockdown is in progress. The PD may have an AOS/KOS sign for passing the second set of doors. The back-entrance which leads to jail cells may not be prop-blocked but can have 2 fading doors to protect it which do not count towards other max-fading doors in the PD. Along with this, being inside or tampering with the tunnel that leads to the cells is AOS/KOS. The vents do not count as a proper entrance, therefore police can't have the vents as their only entrance to the PD. Base Laws All laws stated below are in action with or without a Mayor. The Mayor cannot change any of these laws. Raiding is illegal. Money printers are illegal unless stored in the bank. Murder is illegal. Drugs and explosives are illegal, the mayor may legalize drugs or explosives of their choosing. Threats are illegal. Kidnapping, theft, and Mugging is illegal. Advertising or completing hits are illegal. Physical abuse is illegal. Holding a gun out near the Mayor is KOS. Shooting in public is illegal. Bitcoin miners are LEGAL. Mayor Law Rules The mayor may not discriminate against a specific job (Ex. Making Hobos KOS). The mayor may not make laws that restrict a player’s right to speech, movement, or their abilities to use cosmetics. No J-walking, crouching/walking/running, etc laws. No bans on player cosmetics such as hats, trails, or emotes. The mayor may not allow random weapon checks unless in PD. The mayor MUST advert/broadcast/announce the reason for a lockdown as well as warn players to return to their homes (Excessive shooting, life in danger, PD raid. etc) The Mayor may approve the construction of ONE toll booth for police (Counts as a roadblock). The roadblock must be approved by an Administrator. Lockdowns/Curfews may go on for a max of 10 minutes. Police may only AOS/KOS after one warning unless their life is in immediate danger. This only applies to in-game laws, base-laws that are on the MOTD can be AOS without warning.

The police officer heard excessive shooting within a building. A player is wanted inside the base the officer is warranting. The police officer was notified that a player was being held hostage inside the base. The contraband scanner issued a warrant for a player. Real-world Trading Real-world trading is strictly forbidden for any items that are on RetributionRP's platform. This means that players may not sell any of their items for out of game currencies. If a player is caught doing so a punishment will be decided by a higher-up depending on the severity of the situation, this may include a ban and/or removal of the items sold. Any items sold for real-life currencies will be flagged as "Illegal Goods" and will be prone to being removed from the game by a higher-up at any point, this includes in-game money. Custom Jobs also follow this rule, Job Additions are held as being an "Non-tradeable Store Item" which means they cannot be traded for in-game items or out of game currency. However, if a player has a friend that wishes to be added they can pay for the job addition themselves or give the player the money to, but players are not allowed to profit off of selling additional job slots. Players CAN: Trade in-game items for other in-game items, even if those in-game items are purchased off of the store. Give other players free in-game items. Players CANT: Advertise selling/buying in-game items for out of game currency and vice-versa. Trade in-game items for out of game currencies and vice-versa. Encourage others to break this rule. If a player making a trade with somebody and isn't sure if it's considered RWT or not, add Jouaram on Steam and he will clarify for them. Trading In-game Items When trading in-game weapons, it will be assumed that the weapon you're discussing is a permanent weapon unless specified otherwise. (E.g: 'Selling a ocelot shotgun' = 'Selling a permanent ocelot shotgun') If you want to sell singles of temporary weapons you must specify they are temporary/non permanent, failing to do this will be taken as scamming and is punishable. Trading in-game items has become a very common thing in RetributionRP, and with it rules need to be put in place. Trading in-game items is a completely out of RP experience, where you're no longer in Downtown - you are two people trading virtual items. With this in mind you need to remember the following: You CAN: Prop-block off an area to complete your trade. Ask for a Staff's assistance to monitor the trade (They're not obliged to, however). Trade cash for items and vice-versa using tip-jars, cheque (it is not suggested to use Cash, however you are not disallowed to). Record your trade and post it publicly in-case of any wrong doings. Back out of a trade UNTIL someone has picked up the others item, once you've picked up any item of the other users you have locked in the deal and must complete the trade fully. You CANNOT: Have raidables in the propblocked area. (Permanent items dropped for a trade do not count as raidables). Prop-block the area for any longer than 10 minutes. Prop-block an area that interrupts others RP experience. Prop-block with no intention of completing a trade. Steal from and/or scam the other users interacting in the trade, if caught stealing/scamming the items will be taken back from you plus compensation and a possible ban. (If you're caught dispensing the stolen items/money into a mule account you will be permanently banned no questions asked.) Use RP reasons to steal from the other user such as mugs, kidnaps, etc. It is suggested to wait until a Staff member is available to monitor a trade for the most safety when trading, if no Staff member is on remember you can always hold-off the trade! Player Gambling Statement Player run gambling is now officially banned. All gambling commands have been removed from the game and any sort of player-run gambling setups will be removed by Staff. If a player is caught hosting a gamble any money or items used during the gamble will be removed from their wallet/inventory and they may be punished with a ban.

    New In-game Store With Permanent Items. A reason to have money, finally! (If you like cosmetics, that is) I've added an in-game store and added some of our Vape SWEPs as permanent items that you can purchase in-game for a costly amount; however these Vapes are only limited-time until I can find some more suitable permanent SWEPs to add to it; so purchase them whilst you can! (You will keep them if they get removed from being purchasable in the store - making them even more valuable) I will be sure to announce a few days before I'm removing them from the store so that you can have enough time to grab'em. Not all types of Vapes have been added yet, there are 11 Vapes total and 6 in-game. I may or may not add the last 5 as purchasable later down the road. You'll find Bill, The Black Market Dealer by the fountain. Don't worry about purchasing when near players - I've made it so purchased items go straight to your itemstore inventory! Prop-Limits. I have been looking over lag-wise what changed when I lowered prop limits AND removed the large props from being spawned - not much honestly, definitely not enough to want me to restrict players this much. This is a mistake on my part thinking this would change lag for the better, but at least I know now. I have reverted all prop limit changes back to the previous amount and unrestricted some of the larger props. USER: OLD prop limit = 30 / NEW prop limit = 45 VIP: OLD prop limit = 35 / NEW prop limit = 50 VIPELITE: OLD prop limit = 55 / NEW prop limit = 65 SUPPORTER: OLD prop limit = 100 / NEW prop limit = 120 MODERATOR: OLD prop limit = 50 / NEW prop limit = 65 STAFF ABOVE MODERATOR: All are set to 120. Printer Holder. The Printer Holder that I added a week or so ago got removed due to crashing problems related to itself and Custom Printers. I've disallowed it to pick up Custom Printer's until we get a fix on this; but you can once again purchase Printer Holders in the F4 menu for your raiding needs. That's all folks And that's just about everything I've added today. I'm looking out for more ways to make money more valuable and adding some more ways to make it. I've got my eye on a good weed making addon that could fit with what we do here, but we'll see. Thanks for reading!
