DarkRP Rules

RetributionRP

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/

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.
